Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh is gaining a reputation.

While some have called him aggressive while others have labeled him dirty, Suh isn't worried about the NFL officials calling games differently when he's involved.

"That's ultimately their decision," Suh told 97.1 The Ticket on Thursday. "They have to live with themselves if they want to make bad calls."

"I think I have a great relationship with a lot of the refs," Suh continued. "I felt like last week's ref was a great ref, as well as the ones we've had in the past. I don't see that as an issue and don't look for it to be an issue (in the future) at all."

Suh claimed Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan's ankle injury this past Sunday was a result of "karma". He noted that the Falcons' linemen have a reputation for dirty plays, citing their propensity for cut blocks and dirty tactics in after-tackle piles.

"To me it's karma for all the bad stuff they've done in the past,” Suh said Monday. “Their offensive lineman hurt their own quarterback."

Atlanta players say that Suh taunted Ryan as he lay on the turf injured, a claim that former first-rounder denies.

Suh has notched 23 tackles and three sacks this season.
