via kare11.com 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. Big incident 1: “The stomp” The Thanksgiving stomp heard ’round the country.  On November 24, 2011, Suh pushed Packers’ offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith’s head into the ground multiples times, then stomped on his arm while “trying to stand up” – all after the whistle had blown before which would have been a Packers fourth down.  Suh was given a personal foul (which gave the Packers a first down) and ejected from the game. He was suspended two games, which cost him $165,294.00. Big incident 2: The kick to Matt Schaub’s groin Keeping the Thanksgiving tradition, on November 22, 2012, Suh was involved in a play in which he kicked Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin. The incident resulted in a $30,000 fine from the league. Big incident 3: The low block on John Sullivan In Week One of this season, Suh was fined a record $100,000 (most for an on-field incident) for a low block on Vikings offensive lineman John Sullivan. Big incident 4: A “helmet-to-body” hit on Brandon Weeden By far the least “fine-able” play of the four, Suh was fined $31,500 (a nice round number) for this hit on Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden.  The fine was announced Wednesday. Video of the hit can be found here. Summary: In sum, Suh has been fined a grand total of $209,000 to date.  If you include the lost wages from his two-game suspension in 2011, it amounts to $374,294.  Through his five year career, Suh has made roughly $51.7 million over his four-year career. If you carry the one, 0.7% of his career salary.  That isn’t a typo.  The NFL has “deterred” Suh from further acts (or something like that) by taking pennies from him. To put it in perspective, Suh has made roughly $13 million per season.  If you divide his accumulated fines (including the lost wages from the suspension), they have averaged $93,573.50 per season – 0.7% of his yearly salary.  If the NFL were to fine someone making $50,000 a year the equivalent, it’d amount to $350. Now, you tell me. Have the fines deterred Suh from any type of dirty play? [Photo credit]
