He was beat so he went low and got caught and penalized. Does he really need to be made an example of this time? I just don't see where he was way over the line and acting unsportsman like he has in the past. This instance doesn't even amount to a late hit along the sidelines.

Dear NFL King Roger,

If you want to have fines make sense, assess them as a % of (player's salary+prorated signing bonus).  A $25K fine means different things to James Harrison than it does to a rookie FA.  1% means the same to both.

Sincerely,
BotR

The hit was meaningless. The guy he hit had no chance of making a tackle. Suh hit the guy just out of anger and because he's an unsportsmanlike asshole that doesn't care if he ends someone else's career.

If you really want to hurt him fine him 1/5 of his yearly salary.

The guy was the lead man on the other team, he had to make a block on him. He was close enough to the runner that if he had slipped or stumbled he could have caught him. That is why it was necessary to block him.

And as for the block being low, it was border line. Yes he may have finished at the guys knees, but he started the block at around his mid thigh to hip area, and momentum and gravity carried him through the knees.

Also, for historical reference, 1/5th of  hidden sideline cameras videotaping other teams' signals, less the draft picks missing of course.

BS. The runner was pulling away and was seconds away from the end zone. The play was essentially over. There was no need for that block.

Benefit of the doubt vaporized about three offences ago.  If the NFL was doing anything but glossing over player safety for PR/Legal purposes - because 'violence sells' - Suh would be sitting out half a season by now.

There was no need at all for him to take out the guy at the knees like he did.  Unfortunately, I don't think Suh will ever learn his lesson.

Low block is a flag. Low block, coupled with Suh's track record of disregard for rules/safety, means flag and fine.

That was the type of hit that end's careers. He should be suspended for a game, given his past history. He's up to what, 6 or 7 of these "incidents" within the last 2 years? The man plays to deliberately injure other players on the field, and with a few more instances should be banned from the sport entirely.

Yeah anybody would have been flagged because it was a borderline low block on a change of possession. And if you have been watching football the last couple of years officials are flagging borderline plays. Doesn't mean that there was anything wrong with what he did.

He cut blocked a man, from the side, who did not see him coming without engaging him above the thighs first.  I'm a fan of cut blocking and think there is a place in football for it, but you must allow the man to protect himself.  if the blockee saw Suh coming, he'd have jumped to protect himself and the both would have fallen and it would have been a good block.  If Suh had engaged the blockee above the thighs first it also would have been a successful block.

Kapernick hadn't stepped out of bounds before Matthews launched. He just launched himself a long-ass ways. It was still a stupid play on his part, but it wasn't THAT late.

Besides, if I was going to chose between getting hit late five times or getting blocked low once from the side, I'd chose the former.

http://blogs.suntimes.com/bears/Jared%20Allen%20blindside%20hit.gif

Too big to display.

Another angle on the Suh block shows him in front of the player and hitting the upper thigh. Still not a smart play but far from targeting the knee.

And while Matthews was a goddamn moron for doing it (and what he did after the play), the SF lineman did headbutt him after the play was over.  I would be pretty pissed off too with what we know about concussions.  I wish I could do more to defend the man but his actions were goodamn moronic with all the scrutiny on him leading up to the games.

FTA: Is $100K even that much for him? It's just about three game checks worth -- Suh makes more than $37,000 a pop -- but it's hardly a dent in his personal net worth.

So Suh's salary is about $592,000? (16*37k) That seems kind of low.

Going low on a guy with no chance to make the play.  I can only conclude he wanted to injure the player, and didn't care if it hurt his team.
 
2013-09-10 06:27:49 PM  
Suh hadn't actually done anything dirty all last season, unless you're one of the dipshiats who thinks you can intentionally kick a guy in the groin while tumbling to the ground and facing away.

This was the first since the stomp, which was 22 months ago. It's his fault he has a target on his back, but this fine is silly and over the top. That kind of play is shiatty but happens every week in the NFL. I'm sure with the new rule, Roger popped a big stiffy when Suh was the first to break it.
 
2013-09-10 06:32:09 PM  
First of all, even the announcers stated that last year that would have been perfectly legal.  Both also said the hit was borderline and not directed at the knees.

Does that make it right?  No.

However, any other player in the league not named Suh wouldn't have a fine.

Um...and? Why do people keep bringing this up like it's a salient point? The NFL has made it absolutely clear that past incidents are considered when handing out punishments. I think he had 9 personal fouls in his first two years alone. All benefit of the doubt is thrown out the window at this point and he has no one to blame but himself.

rcantley: Suh hadn't actually done anything dirty all last season, unless you're one of the dipshiats who thinks you can intentionally kick a guy in the groin while tumbling to the ground and facing away.

This was the first since the stomp, which was 22 months ago. It's his fault he has a target on his back, but this fine is silly and over the top. That kind of play is shiatty but happens every week in the NFL. I'm sure with the new rule, Roger popped a big stiffy when Suh was the first to break it.


Of course that kick was dirty - this is Suh we're talking about. He's a Ninja. He also cock-blocked his best friend below the belt at a club over the summer, then when a troop of Boy Scouts was trying to sell his sister cookies, he "tripped" over an extension cord and "accidentally" broke every single cookie that they had... then refused to buy them! He's so dirty I don't think even Chuck Norris could kick him clean.

On a more serious note, the block was dumb - it was borderline when he started it, he hit lower than he should have and really, it shouldn't have been thrown in the first place. It deserved a flag. It's the kind of hit that quite rightly is being taken out of the game, and if Jared Allen had thrown it on Dominic Raiola, I'd be screaming about it. As Suh has a history of these kinds of borderline plays (and plays which quite obviously go over the line), a fine is warranted. The 100k fine might be a bit excessive, but then I haven't kept up with the amount that his previous fines were, and he's making a crapload of money so it's not going to hurt his pocket book much, even if it is excessive.  I'm not sure that a suspension would be warranted for this hit - the play isn't a clear attempt to injure. The play falls under the "It's Suh!" so much of the football world simply assumes its dirty.

But the hyperbolic "Suh should be banned!" or "Fine him his entire salary!" is rather laughable.

/Go Lions!

What is that Italian word for a guy who knows he is a jerk, but doesn't care if everyone knows he is a jerk?

That's this guy.

That word.

Suspend Matthews a few games and ban Suh.  Suh needs to go back to Dumbfarkistan, NE, and be fat.

CruiserTwelve: sammyk: He was beat so he went low and got caught and penalized. Does he really need to be made an example of this time? I just don't see where he was way over the line and acting unsportsman like he has in the past. This instance doesn't even amount to a late hit along the sidelines.

The hit was meaningless. The guy he hit had no chance of making a tackle. Suh hit the guy just out of anger and because he's an unsportsmanlike asshole that doesn't care if he ends someone else's career.


You play until the whistle blows.  Don't ever stop just because you aren't part of the play anymore.  The runner fumbles, and it swings back your way.  Could happen real quick.  Keep playing until the whistle blows.
