NFL won't suspend Suh for low blow against Schaub

Quote:
Ndamukong Suh might lose some money for his low blow against Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub.

The Detroit Lions defensive tackle, though, will be able to play Sunday at home against the Indianapolis Colts.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello tweeted Monday that the Lions have been notified that Suh won't be suspended for last Thursday's ''incident,'' though it will be reviewed for a potential fine.

With his past of dirty hits... if it warrants a fine it should come with a suspension IMO

Can't suspend the guy unless you're 100% sure he meant it.

It was a harmless play. What he did is less threatening than a tackle. If you start suspending players for things like that it would be disgraceful to the game.

What's disgraceful to the game is dirt backs like Suh stomping on people's arms (Packer game last year) and intentionally trying to kick some in the goods. Suh's record is a mile long and i get that you can't prove intent and that it wasn't all that harmful but with his past i feel he should have gotten suspended because his past tells you what his intent was.

Good. Fine him? Sure. But don't suspend someone for something you can't say for certain was on purpose.

Then how can you fine him if you're not sure it's on purpose?

If he's fined, then I seriously give up. He either did something wrong, or he didn't, there is no gray area. If they believe he kicked intentionally, he should be fined and suspended. If they believe the kick was accidental, he shouldn't be fined or suspended.

I don't understand how he didn't get a suspension. If that wasn't intentional; then his leg just defied the laws of physics.

Suh is an amazing player, but I have no respect for him. No offense to Lions fans, but if someone where to take a cheap shot and take out Suh, I can't say I'd feel sorry for him. He brings it upon himself with this type of thuggish play.

Bunkleys play was worse and he wont face any suspension either.

Cant have double standards

Meh. I'm convinced it was intentional, but sadly, there is plausible-deniability here. Not like his kick on EDS, where he was clearly pissy and taking it out on a target he could clearly see.


You win this time, Sue.

A long history of doing things outside of in game tackling, and hard hits he should be made an example of.

If it is bad enough to fine it is bad enough to suspend for Suh

Suh's foot changes direction beccause it hits Schaub's hand while Suh's head is down in the turf. Look at the side view and it is even more obvious. How is it even being called a kick? The replay is pretty obvious if you watch it without an agenda.

Good point on that actually - in this case it was the same deal as with EDS -a WWF take down by the OL that didn't get called. I think OL know they won't get called for taking Suh down so they do it when he is on his way to the QB or to get under his skin. Either way it is effective!

HAHA... yeah everyone against Suh has an "agenda"???

It was obvious he extended his leg and kicked him.

I have zero agenda against Suh but it looked obvious to me.
