    Ndamukong Suh banned two games
    ESPN.com news services

    NEW YORK -- The NFL suspended Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh for two games without pay for stomping an opponent in a Thanksgiving Day game.

    The NFL said this was Suh's fifth violation of on-field rules in the last two seasons. He will not be permitted to practice with the Lions or take part in team activities during the suspension.
    Suh stomped on the arm of Green Bay guard Evan Dietrich-Smith in the third quarter of the Lions' 27-15 loss and was ejected for kicking.
    Before stomping Dietrich-Smith, Suh pushed his head into the turf while Dietrich-Smith was on the ground.
    Suh's suspension will cost him $164,000, or two game checks. He can appeal the suspension within three business days, and the NFL said an expedited appeal hearing would be held this week in advance of the Week 13 schedule.
    If Suh's suspension stands, he will miss games against the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings and would be reinstated Dec. 12.
    Suh called commissioner Roger Goodell on Sunday night to apologize for his behavior during Detroit's loss to Green Bay, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
    This month, the 2010 Defensive Rookie of the Year requested a meeting with Goodell to discuss his play after drawing several penalties. Suh said he had a better understanding of the rules after meeting with the commissioner.
    The Lions are expected to issue the maximum $25,000 fine allowable under the collective bargaining agreement for a player being ejected. Team president Tom Lewand has been in communication with league officials. The Lions also have to pay a $50,000 fine because team members will have been fined more than $100,000 this season.
    In 2006, the league suspended Titans defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth for five games for swiping his cleats across the head of helmetless Dallas center Andre Gurode.

    He admits no wrong on his press conference but calls Goodell to apologize for his behavior? He's not as good this year anyways. 3 sacks and they're 23rd against the run.

    He reversed course the day after the game and apologized publicly too.

    He got the bare minimum. On the flipside, he's a big glowing target moving forward and can forget about ever having benefit of the doubt on his side ever again.

    Next incident would almost certainly be an 8-game ban.

    Ndamukong Suh knows he made a mistake, but he has been encouraged by NFLPA and Roger Goodell to appeal 2-game suspension and he will.

    Yeah take away the suspension Adolf Goodell :rolleyes: Suh clearly didnt kick Smith, his leg was just having a spaz attack. And he didnt mean to shove the helmet to the ground three times. He was just getting up off the ground! Yeah! Suh is not a dirty or bad player, just misunderstood!

    goodell himself suggested to appeal? Wasn't the sentence passed by Goodell or a board that Goodell is part of? Is the appeal suggested just so the punishment is postponed and Suh can play SNF?

    So Goodell talked Vick into signing with Philly and now he's telling Suh to appeal.

    Some commish he is.
