According to CBSSports.com via Jay Glazer of Fox Sports, the NFL is levying $100,000 fine for Ndamukong Suh’s low block to John Sullivan on Tuesday. After the Detroit Lions intercepted a pass, they quickly turned defense into offense. Yes, Suh’s block was low, but is it $100,000 low? There is no way this fine is fair when dozens of these blocks happen throughout the year. Now if you're tell fans they are adding this money to the recent settlement, then that might be a good idea. Otherwise, the NFL is nothing but a bank, robbing you of your own money.
The only reason why the block was illegal is because you aren’t allowed to cut people on turnovers. Since players aren’t allowed to cut block, the touchdown was not allowed. Some people who have seen the block are exaggerating by a wide margin. Some ESPN analysts said the block was 15-20 yards away from the ball. Those analysts need to know how to count. They need to learn how the field is measured. Maybe they got their yards and ft mixed up. In America, one yard equals three ft. That means three yards would be nine ft. Now let’s say it together. Five yards is 15 ft. Now where on earth is John Sullivan 45 ft away from the ball when he gets blocked?
The NFL continues with their stupidity. The league that doesn’t care about their players as people one bit always shows this fake outrage. The only outrageous thing here is this six figure fine.
This is the same league that warned ESPN not to work on the concussion documentary. Why wouldn’t they want ESPN part of a project that they are so concerned with? Well, it’s because the NFL is run by a bunch of phonies.
Ndamukong Suh needs to appeal this joke of a fine ASAP.
While this is going on, nothing is happening to the mad man, Clay Matthews for his behavior from Sunday's game. Guess he really gets a discount double check.
