Ndamukong Suh will never learn. That much is apparent.
After the NFL slammed the Lions defensive lineman with a $100,000 fine, Suh fired back with some rhetoric that should, at the very least, get the NFL’s attention.
“Really you just play football, that’s all I can do,” Suh said via NFL.com. “…I don’t change, I’m going to always play tough, hard, that’s the way I was brought up at Nebraska, where I really learned football from the Pelinis and that staff and continue to play hard, play blue-collar football.”
