He has been named the “NFL’s dirtiest player” by his peers in Sporting News. He was tagged the NFL’s “Least-Liked Player” in a 2012 Nielsen report that was published in Forbes. And while in my humble opinion – (that’s IMHO for the kids) – Ndamukong Suh has deserved much of what he has gotten as far as negative press goes, the fines that he has accumulated have been an absolute joke. A joke in the sense that fining a guy tens of thousands of dollars (or less) to a guy that makes eight figures annually does, say it with me, absolutely nothing.
Here’s a brief look at the history of Suh’s fines:
The early incidents
As a rookie, Suh was fined twice for hits on quarterbacks – Jake Delhomme ($7,500) – and Jay Cutler ($15,000). He was also banged once for $5,000 for using an opponent for leverage on a field goal (extremely lame). In 2011, he was docked $20,000 for a hit on Andy Dalton in an exhibition game.
