I am not a fan of suspending players for playoff games. Always something about it that struck me as wrong. With that said, I totally agree with the NFL's decision to sit Suh's gargantuan ass on the pine for the wildcard round. Yes, Roger Goodell is a nazi prick, but he was really left with no choice. What is an alternative answer? Fine him some inconsequential amount of money? The guy already has millions upon millions of dollars, and he is about to make about a billion dollars on his next contract in the offseason. If money were a deterrent to Suh the last 3 or 4 incidents involving him wouldn't have occurred in the first place.Plus, it sets a bad precedent. If someone as notably psychotic as Suh simply loses some minuscule percentage of his salary, and what a player with no prior transgressions get when he does something similar?
Truth be told, I used to love Suh. I used to think his aggressiveness and talent were something to behold. His incidents, in the beginning of his career anyway, were a result of playing too hard or unnecessary physicality after making football plays. Then he started kicking quarterbacks in the dick and stomping on their ankles, and somewhere along the line he lost that benefit of the doubt. If he were simply suspended for a late hit or a hit to the head I would have far more of a problem with it. Could Suh stepping on Aaron Rodgers ankle twice have been an accident? Yeah, sure, if it were literally anyone else. You don't give a sex offender the benefit of the doubt when he's a caught in a park after sun down. Sure, he may just enjoy a nice stroll through the park and a few minutes on the swings. However, it's more than likely he's trying to diddle toddlers, and it's more than likely that Suh was trying to end Rodgers playoff run before it started.
So, as a partial observer who isn't particularly a fan of Aaron Rodgers, FUCK Suh. That big dumb animal deserves whatever punishment the NFL gives him from here on out. When you literally attempt to behead quarterbacks on a yearly basis you lose my sympathy. If you wake up naked in an alley with a sore asshole every time you drink Jack Daniel's, you should probably stop drinking Jack Daniel's. If you get 35 warnings from the NFL commissioner you should probably stop putting yourself into questionable situations. At some point the intent stops being questioned and the severity of the action, and the grocery list of a rap sheet comes into consideration first and foremost.
