“It’s not like injuring someone, it’s not excusable”

Miami Dolphins tackle Ndamukong Suh gave an emotional apology to his mother on Wednesday, appearing on TV after swearing audibly during the Dolphins’ Nov.8 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

“I’m sorry, Ma, it was very unprofessional” said the emotional Suh. “This is not the sort of behavior I was raised to exhibit. I was raised to be professional, show respect to all, and create patients for the most accomplished surgeons in the country.  God bless America.”

Suh has long been one of the NFL’s best tackles, leading the league in sacks during his 2010 rookie year and not slowing down since. He has 4 times been named a Pro Bowler, only missing out on the NFL’s all-star game once on during his 5 year career.  He has also been one of its most controversial players, with a history of both questionable hits and poor conduct after the whistle.  His record of dirty play was punctuated by stomping on the Packers’ Evan Dietrich-Smith in 2011 and kicking Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin in 2012.  Suh was named the NFL’s ‘dirtiest player’ by a Sporting News poll of NFL players in 2011 and 2012   .* **

“Cursing is unacceptable conduct,” said Suh, visibly downcast while addressing the press on Wednesday.  “Stepping on Evan (Dietrich-Smith)’s head and stomping on his arm is the way the game is played – I play with heart, and I know my Mama and all my folks expect no less of me. The number of compound fractures I deliver – truly, one of football’s greatest injuries *** – will forever be the stat of which I am most proud. But cursing during a game is not like injuring someone, it’s inexcusable. I’m so sorry, Ma.”

Questioned on their controversial star, the Miami Dolphins only issued a press statement saying that if they had possessed a tackle of Suh’s caliber in the 1980s that Dan Marino would have won a Super Bowl.

When asked if his team’s response was appropriate to such a notorious cursing episode, Suh showed pride and contrition.

“I know people will say I’m the most fined player in NFL history, but those assholes a- sorry, Ma – are only motivated by jealousy. But I want my coaches and teammates and fans around the world to know this: you will never see anything as bad as this from Ndamukong Suh again.”
