From Larry Brown Sports:

Nadmukong Suh is still in denial. The Detroit Lions defensive lineman continues to deny that he is a dirty player despite three years’ of evidence saying otherwise.

Suh knows he has a reputation for being dirty, but he doesn’t think that billing is fair.

“Honestly, I don’t believe it’s fair,” Suh told ESPN’s Merril Hoge in an interview for “NFL Sunday Countdown.”

“A reputation, in my opinion, is something that’s always evolving. You can’t let one particular instance or one particular act, or even one particular year, say this is this person’s reputation,” Suh told Hoge, via MLive.com.

Honestly Suh, your act is just old. People were willing to give you a chance to show that you weren’t dirty, but you continue to prove otherwise.

The first act came in the preseason of Suh’s first game when he ripped off Jake Delhomme’s head. Then there were accusations that Suh taunted an injured Matt Ryan. And then there was the dirtiest play of them all, which came when Suh stomped Packers offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith last Thanksgiving. Suh then capped it all off by kicking Matt Schaub in the groin this Thankgsiving.

By our count, this is at least the fourth time Suh has publicly tried defending his reputation. He shouldn’t even bother anymore. The public doesn’t want to hear what he has to say; it has already made up its mind on him.

  • Dirty players don't know any different cuz thats all they know. Just like liers don't think they lie. Listen to what people are saying and change yourself.
  • Nadmukong Suh is borderline retarded, that's why he doesn't understand.
  • Come on people!! Ed Reed is right! The NFL is going Powder Puff. I remember when Lyle was screaming for LIVE MEAT and all we did was tell him how awesome he and the Raiders were!! Take off the short shorts and lets play BALL!!!
  • Really? He doesn't think it's fair? Then change it. You can still be a feared player without being a dirty one. Think Richard Dent. Dan Hampton. Terrell Suggs. Ed Reed. Ray Lewis. Think "Orange Crush". Think "Purple People Eaters" or the "Fearsome Foursome". They may have had dirty player moments (all the great ones do) but on the whole, they were feared, not dirty.
