Ndamukong Suh Suspension Will Cost Lions Star More Than Just Money

The lasting impression from the NFL's slate of Thanksgiving Day games was, unfortunately, Ndamukong Suh's stomp. As many good story lines as there were, that little moment is the one that casual fans are most likely to remember. Suh was suspended two games, which will cost him about $160,000, but this may have cost him more than money writes National Football Post's Andrew Brandt:

I, like many, gave Suh the benefit of the doubt, but on Thursday Suh lost my goodwill. Not only did he potentially cost his team the game – the stomp came after a crucial hold on third down – but he cost himself something much bigger: his reputation.

This is unfortunate for all parties involved. There's simply no denying that Suh is a force on the football field and is the kind of player the league would love to be able to market. But incidents like this are going to make it harder, as Brandt so clearly illustrates.
