Lions Ndamukong Suh on Fine: “I Don’t Change”
Wrong and strong. That should be Ndamukong Suh’s personal mantra.
Even after being the recipient of the NFL’s largest ever fine for another dirty play in a game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, the Detroit Lions defensive tackle according to Yahoo! Sports, remained defiant, saying that he’s not going to change the way he approaches the game.
“I don’t change,” Suh said. “I’m going to always play tough, hard, that’s the way I was brought up at Nebraska, where I really learned football from the (Bo) Pelini and that staff and continue to play hard, play blue-collar football.”
I wasn’t aware that playing “blue-collar football” involved lounging at the knees of an unsuspecting player. Hopefully, as Suh gets older, he’ll mature and realize that he doesn’t have to engage in dirty tactics to have an affect on the game (I said hopefully).
In the meantime, Suh says that he intends on appealing the fine.
