Ndamukong Suh, however is totally indifferent to this incident and doesn’t understand why a big issue is being made out of this incident. It was rather comical to see him in the post-match interview saying that he has never intentionally stepped on anyone. Oh Really?
"If I see a guy stepping on somebody I feel like they're going to lean into it and forcefully step on that person or stand over that person. I'm going in the opposite direction to where he's at." I must admit that this made total sense reminiscent of the O.J. Simpson defense of, “If the glove doesn’t fit you must acquit.”
This is what Ndamukong Suh made of the incident: “I was on top of a guy being pulled down and trying to get up off the ground, which is why you see me pushing his helmet down. As I'm getting up, I'm getting pushed so I'm getting myself unbalanced. With that a lot of people are going to interpret it as or create their own storylines...but I know what I did, and the man upstairs knows what I did.”
I haven’t the slightest clue whom he is referring to as the man upstairs. I hope he is talking about the NFL Commissioner. The video suggests that he did step on purpose and judging by the response from related parties, Ndamukong Suh is in for a big fine and might even receive a suspension for his actions. But Ndamukong Suh actually is right in a sense. When you are on the ground, you do get up by pushing the opponent player’s helmet into the ground and when you get unbalanced from a push, you are allowed to stamp on the same fallen player to steady yourself; Ndamukong Suh, you never fail to amaze us.
In spite of all this, Ndamukong Suh still maintains his innocence and says that: “My intentions were not to kick anybody, as I did not. (I was) removing myself, as you see, I'm walking away from the situation. And with that I apologize to my teammates, and my fans and my coaches for putting myself to be in position to be misinterpreted and taken out of the game.”
Let’s at least appreciate Ndamukong Suh for issuing an open and public apology. And it’s fairly right to think that if a person has a bad reputation with tackles, he is cornered and blamed even if they are involved in something unintentional.
Put everything to one side, but if Ndamukong Suh is unable to control his tempers, his blossoming career might be heavily cut short by extended suspensions and fines.
