Thread: Why is Suh is out to hurt his public image???

  1. #1

    Why is Suh is out to hurt his public image???

    Give me a break. A simple question, "Did you apologize to your teammates?" Can't answer that. Suh is building himself into a egotistocal villan whether he realizes that or not. What happened to this humble, hard working straight laced man that came out of the univ. of Nebraska?
    There are some disturbing answers from Suh during this interview – Seems to be a lot of “ME” in those answers, nothing about the other people in the car crash, etc. – Interesting………………………….

    happens all the time. Suh has the right to answer or not answer any question he wants. He is not obligated to answer any question. I thought he did a good job of letting the two knuckle heads know that he wanted to talk about football but they were hell bent on talking about the crash. Having said all of that. Suh has alot of work ahead of him to repair his current image.

    When I look at Suh, it reminds me of the brand new freshman who tries to bench press 400 lbs to impress the seniors.

    He's still sort of a "rookie," if you will; he's only got 2 years of NFL experience compared to guys like Kyle Vanden Bosch or Ahman Green who have played countless seasons in the big leagues. I get the feeling that Suh is trying too hard to impress the veterans so he's putting on a tough guy image. He wants to intimidate other players and make them respect him.

    If you know anything about sports culture, this is common. The new kid will either "hit back," or they'll just get dumped on by the vets for a few years. Everybody's gotta take their lumps.

    It sounds like Suh is trying to avoid that from happening by scaring off any would-be harassers. It seems to be working, but it's also coming at the cost of his "nice guy" image. I love Suh, but it makes me love a guy like Grant Wistrom that much more. Similar situation - another Nebraska D-Lineman who went to the NFL and dominated. But Grant took the high road and was never known as a dirty player.

    No longer a Suh fan. The guy is a dirty egotistical jerk. I was big on him when he was at Nebraska, but that was before he was stomping on down linemen (he clearly pureposefully stomped the guy and Suh denying it was idiotic) and being a jerk to the media. Enjoy missing the playoffs, Suh.

    LOL. If Suh "clearly and purposefully" stomped anyone, they wouldn't be walking today.

    A better question is, why are Husker fans so quick to turn their backs on someone?

    Still part of the Flat Earth Society group that thinks Suh was not intentionally stomping on the guy. Wow.

    Heard part of the clip this AM. What did you think Suh? That people are just going to kiss your ass now that the suspension is over? Just ask you about this week's opposing QB. Here's a clue, twit....either quit doing radio/tv interviews OR underdstand that you've established a track record for being an idiot...understand that you WILL be asked about it...do your best to kiss butts until you've rehabbed your image...which isn't going to be over-night.

    This guy has become a clown. REALLY? you didn't think someone was going to ask questions about what you are REALLY in the news for? Fool.

    In this particular case Suh now has a track record for being a jack---. I never really understood why so many hated on Crouch but I get it with suh.

    Good to see you've pulled your head out of the sand long enough to respond. Hey, i know there's a population around here that would turn over the keys to their significant other for a current/former husker so I get the blind loyalty shown...nevertheless it's still weird to actually see it in full effect.

    It's not blind loyalty. I base my opinions on actual evidence. I don't get them from talking heads. And I know a little bit about weight transfer.

    If that was an "intentional stomp", I'll let Suh intentionally stomp me any time he wants. I've seen more violent stomps on All-Star Wrestling.

    Ben Cotton's kick against the A&M pervert grabbing his balls was an intentional kick. Compare the two.

    I have no doubt you would.

    Suh, after getting into a scuffle with the guy saw his arm then stomped on it. It's just a good thing there was another Packer player behind him pushing him away. If Suh does that to any normal human being (a 5'10 180 pound guy, not a 325 pound lineman) there is probably severe damage. Cotton was getting his nuts pinched and as a reaction started kicking and squirming. I'd disagree 100% with what you said, Suh's was intentional, Cotton's reactionary.

    You're bringing physics into the argument? No offense but that's comical. Those who defend Suh are looking prettty foolish but to each his own. It might be better to hope he changes rather than to justify his behavior as it is. I honestly think he's not unlike a lot of guys playing football for a living...its violent, its frustrating, its painful. Not the stuff that brings out the best in people. When he learns to control himself and not act like a spoiled brat on the playground I think people will forgive and forget. But he just keeps pouring fuel on the fire for the haters (and I'm not a Suh hater). I'm all for Husker loyalty, but this stuff is beyond reasonable. If he was a Sooner, I suspect he'd have ZERO supporters on this board. In fact, there would be multiple "I hate that thug Sooner Suh" threads moving at light speed.

    There was no one behind him pushing him away. If anything, the Packer behind him was holding him up.

    If you know anything about weight transfer (and Suh is one of the best at it) it's obvious there was no malice intended with the "kick". If you watch the "victim" get up, it's obvious there was no pain delivered by Suh on the "kick".

    Again, it looked more like a WWF move. Too bad he wasn't swinging a folding chair.

    I like Suh. Even to this day. His PR (the Packer stomping, accident) is severely lacking, but that not withstanding.. I love how he plays. It's how I was raised to play (I'm a defensive guy). That said, he does have to think about what he's doing, especially now that the NFL brass is watching him like a hawk.

    My question is why does Suh get suspended and fined for 'stomping' that OL's arm (which was more of an afterthought 'stomp' than the word 'stomp' implies BTW) but Brian Robison of the Vikings (former Longhorn) gets a slap in the wrist fine for kicking a Packer OL's groin?

    Either way, as a Viking fan.. I enjoyed both performances. As a football fan they were stupid moves, but I'd be lying if I told you I was upset about seeing that.

    I still love Suh and hold out hope that he will get his act together. Right now I'm disappointed in him for acting like a punk.
