Ndamukong Suh's Appeal Of Suspension Is Denied

On Thanksgiving day, Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh was ejected from the game against the Green Bay Packers for stomping on a Packers offensive linemen. Because Suh has a history with personal fouls and fines, we expected a suspension and that's exactly what the NFL did suspending Suh for two games.

He appealed his suspension this week with Art Shell, who was jointly appointed by the players and the league, and that appeal has been denied, according to the Lions website.

Some thought Suh's appeal could be successful in reducing his suspension from one to two games but ultimately that's not the case and I think the league made the right move here. Suh is a repeat offender and he made an egregious error in front of one of the biggest broadcasts of the year for the NFL. He needed to be punished.

Now the question becomes how the 7-4 Lions can fare in his absence. Check out SB Nation's Pride of Detroit for more on that.
