After rushing the field this weekend and soaking in the Michigan victory over Ohio State, it’s hard to think about other issues in sports. It seems as though Saturday’s game is the only thing on a Michigan fan’s mind– the way the team went out there and “Suh-Stomped” the Buckeyes.
Suh-Stomped? Oh yeah, the Lions played on Thursday.
Those who watched the game surely will not forget this highlight from Thanksgiving’s 27-15 loss to the Packers. Star defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh caused a penalty and got himself ejected from the game when he repeatedly shoved a Green Bay Packer Lineman’s head into the ground. When the referee managed to separate Suh from the lineman, Suh stood up and stomped on the player’s chest.
Suh tried to plead his case to the referee (and then coach Jim Schwartz) after his bad-natured display. From the looks of it, he acted as if he did nothing wrong and should not have been ejected. His behavior was unsportsmanlike and he indeed should have been thrown out of the game. An act like that during a nationally broadcasted game gives the Lions, a good and charitable team, a bad reputation. Suh will very likely be suspended soon, hopefully giving him enough time to clean his act up rather than talk his way out of it like before.
