Detroit Lions Football:
Here's a transcript of the Lions defensive tackle's first meeting with the press since returning from a two-game suspension.
BEST OF MAXIM
He wore black shorts, had black sleeves on under his white No. 90 jersey, and, from a balcony above the Detroit Lions' indoor practice field at least, Ndamukong Suh looked no different than when his teammates last saw him two weeks ago.
The Detroit media is up in arms over Ndamukong Suh's refusal to go in-depth answering questions about his suspension and car accident. They were expecting an apology, and didn't get one. They were expecting a comment on the Portland wreck, and didn't get one. They were expecting a mea culpa, and didn't get one.
Paula Pasche of The Oakland Press posted a snippet...
Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh returned to practice on Wednesday and was asked repeatedly about his personal life and recent suspension, but would only talk about football.
ALLEN PARK, Mich. Ndamukong Suh isn't sharing with the public any thoughts he might have of remorse or contrition about the stomping incident on Thanksgiving Day that caused the NFL to suspend him for two games.
No public apologies appear to be forthcoming, either.
Suh avoided any direct answers to the stomping incident in a Wednesday news conference after his first practice...
I wasn’t into super heroes or cartoon characters as a child. I became a sports fan early in life so the walls of my room were mostly covered with team pennants and posters and pictures of my favorite players. They were larger than life characters to me and I often imitated them in the backyard, street or driveway.

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has been in the news quite a bit lately, and it's been for all of the wrong reasons. Suh was suspended for two games by the NFL after stomping on Green Bay offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith on Thanksgiving, and the lineman was then involved in a car accident in Oregon. Reported details of the latter incident have since been released...
Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh returned to the practice field on Wednesday and his teammates were happy to have him back.
Far be it for me to tell somebody how to do their jobs, but I don't understand why the Lions media relations department wouldn't have made Ndamukong Suh available to us on Monday. He was in the building. We were in the building. He's going to have to address the media sooner or later -- Wednesday
Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh was suspended for two games after stomping a player, but Pittsburgh linebacker James Harrison received only a one game suspension for fifth his helmet-to-helmet hit.
Last week wasn’t a fun week for Detroit Lions fans. The team had just played on national television and threw away whatever chance they had at beating the favored Saints because of selfish acts after the whistle. The team was already without Ndamukong Suh as a result of his Thanksgiving Day stomp job against the Packers, one would have thought they’d be on their best behavior...
This is for all the marbles, folks. If the Raiders lose this week, they can pretty much kiss their playoff hopes goodbye. The game within the game is of utmost importance. These two teams are very evenly matched. Both are also fighting to earn a playoff spot. It will not be about who wants it more but who can be the smartest team on Sunday.
Suhpid mistakesThe Raiders and Lions...
Detroit Lions defensive tackle Jovan Haye had two tackles in only seven snaps, but was released after one game to likely make room for Ndamukong Suh.
