I said Good Day!



That's right Ndamukong Suh, I said good day

Take your childish antics and leave. 


I've no doubt that all of you reading were watching the Packer/Lions game on Thursday. Ok fine. Maybe some of you were preparing your turkey and stuffing. Maybe some of you aren't even Packer fans (gasp!). I can forgive you. (No I can't). Either way, I'm sure you've at least heard about what Suh did. Here's a still from the moment before Suh stomps on Evan Dietrich-Smith's arm with his cleats.

Um, hi? This isn't the kindergarten playground. You can't just go around stomping on people. You are a grown-assed man and you can control your temper. Didn't you read our post about sportsmanship? Suh has been suspended three times already. And another suspension is expected to be dished out today. At what point does someone say "hey, this guy is a terrible employee and needs to be fired"? If this were any other job he would have been let go a long time ago.

But, this is the NFL. And apparently bullies are still allowed to make millions.

What do you think about this? Should players who deliberatly hurt other players be fined? Suspended? Released from the team?


Should you be allowed to kick another guy in the balls and get away with it? What has happened to sportsmanship?

UPDATE: Suh suspended for 2 games without pay.

  1. I'm so torn with this guy! I mean clearly what he did was horrible, but then off the field it's like a different person. Not an excuse and he deserves the suspension, just so odd. I know a lot of the players use the game as their way to get out aggression I'm just not sure I've seen the extremes to this extent before.

  2. I hate when players act like this. It's completely idiotic for a grown man to behave like this. I think a two game suspension...for a fourth offense...is not enough of a punishment. Clearly this guy isn't getting the message.

  3. In my opinion, any use of cleats is grounds to be kicked off the team. Those things could KILL someone. It's not worth someone's life. If you can't control yourself to the extent that you're maybe maiming/killing people, you need to get sent to anger management before I can your ass.

  4. I agree with everything said before me. I was watching the game, but I think I missed this fine moment in American sports. That is completely uncalled for and he should be put on WAY more than a 2-game suspension. There is absolutely no excuse for this kind of behavior.

    When asked if she realized she was a role model to kids, Taylor Swift said on 60 Minutes a couple of weeks ago that, "it's my responsibility to know." He may think he is just out there playing a game and being paid handsomely for it, but there are strings attached to that jersey. And the only teachable moment from the Lions/Packers game is how NOT to play the game. Shame, shame.

  5. I saw that happen and was so shocked. I think he should have gotten more than a 2-game suspension. Like, community service teaching sportsmanship to Pee Wee teams or something.
