Ndamukong Suh Taunting: Lions Tackle Again In Trouble For On-Field Behavior
Ndamukong Suh and his taunting were making headlines again as the Detroit Lions tackle can’t seem to keep himself out of trouble.
Suh has gotten into trouble for dirty behavior before, including on Thanksgiving day when his foot just happened to kick Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin as Suh went to the ground.
This time the Ndamukong Suh taunting accusation came from Colts guard Mike McGlynn, who called out Suh for what he believed was unsportsmanlike behavior. As KCTV 5 reported, the incident took place with a little under seven minutes to play in the game on Sunday when Lions cornerback Don Carey intercepted Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. On the return, Suh hammered Colts tackle Winston Justice and sending him out of the game with a concussion.
Ndamukong Suh is accused of taunting Justice as he laid on the ground, dancing and laughing around the injured player, McGlynn told the Indianapolis Star.
“Totally ignorant on their part. Just childish stuff,” McGlynn said of the Ndamukong Suh taunting. “We’re all battling out there; I don’t know if the hit was legal or not, but clearly he was hurt, and they’re out there dancing and pointing at him and laughing. Just blatant disrespect. They’re good players but there’s no room for that. It’s disgusting, really.”
But McGlynn and the Colts got the final laugh, defeating the Lions 35-33, scoring a touchdown on the game’s final play as time expired.
McGlynn seemed to take extra glee in the victory after Ndamukong Suh’s taunting.
“If that had happened to one of their players, we’d never do something like that,” he said. “But that’s what makes this even sweeter. That’s why they lose. I hope they never win another game.”
The Ndamukong Suh taunting incident seems to fit in line with the reputation the Lions tackle has gained around the league. In a survey of players, he was voted the dirtiest player in the NFL.
