    Oh, Ndamukong Suh...

    Lions' Suh accused of sideswiping car, berating driver

    ALLEN PARK, Mich. -- Ndamukong Suh, bad boy of the Detroit Lions, notorious for his temper on the field, is accused of displaying some of that on the road Thursday morning.

    "All three of us got over. He rode up on my butt," said Steve Vines. "As we're going up the ramp, he just punched it, went right around me.... He just sideswiped me."

    Vines was on his way into work about 6:20 a.m. Thursday when he and other drivers merged on the Rotunda ramp along the southbound Southfield. He said the driver behind him in a black Range Rover sped around him and sideswiped his car. They stopped at the light. Vines got out of his Escort and the other driver, whose taillights were damaged, started yelling.

    "I look over at him and he started yelling at me, 'Trying to cut me off. Get out of the way.' And I just said, 'Really?'" he explained. "He just started yelling about getting the hell out of his way and cutting him off."

    Vines said the guy left the scene of the accident. He called 911 and watched the man drive into the Lions' practice facility. Dearborn Police told Vines to meet them there, but when he arrived, he said the driver gave him another earful.

    "That's when he said, 'I advise you to leave, now.' And I said, 'I'm not going anywhere. I talked to the police.' (He said), 'I don't care what they said. You need to get out of here.' And then he said, 'I'm advising you to leave, now.'"

    Vines said he didn't even realize the other driver was none other than Ndamukong Suh, who was suspended last season for stomping another player. He made the news again when he lost control and crashed his classic car in Portland.

    Now Suh is accused of sideswiping Vines, berating him and leaving the scene of the accident, damaging a Ford Escort that actually belongs to Vines' children.

    "The fact that you hit me, you got to stop, and then just to be as arrogant and say, well, I'm going to take off, they can come find me over here," said Vines. "I don't know who this guy is at first and tell you the truth, I still didn't realize it was Ndamukong Suh until I was told that's who it was."

    Here's the thing. Vines is a huge Lions' fan. He's not looking for bad press for them. All he wants is his kids' car fixed.

    "You were in the wrong, 110 percent in the wrong. You know, just own up to it. It didn't have to come to this. I don't want anything more. I don't want anything less. I just want my kids' car fixed so that I know it's safe."

    Dearborn Police are investigating. FOX 2 tried to ask Suh about the accident after practice on Thursday, but Suh had far less to say leaving work than we're told he did on the way in.
    Look, I've gone to great lengths to defend some of Suh's past transgressions, but this is getting beyond ridiculous. Guy has all the talent in the world and a head that's screwed on three rotations too tight or something. I hope he turns it around, but looks like he's still trending downward.

    Yeah I have been on the other side of this one and have thought that Suh is a jerk period. The world can be a crazy place if he had done that to the wrong person we might be reading a real sad story today.
    This guy is going to do something that get him in deep trouble if he does not grow up soon.

    Yeah, I don't know what to make of this guy. He had a great set of parents growing up, has a dream career in the NFL, but is still an angry young man who can't, or won't stay out of trouble. Like you Nck, I'd like to see him get his attitude in order, but unfortunately, it looks like the mold is set and he is who he is.

    Wow, when it rains, it pours:

    Ndamukong Suh adds a lawsuit to unfortunate week

    Bad things must happen in threes for Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

    First, an anonymous general manager called him overrated. Next, there was yet another fender-bender. Now, he's being sued.

    Gregory and Laura Packer have filed a lawsuit against the defensive lineman over a hefty residence security deposit, according to The Oakland Press.

    The Packers (no relation to the prominent NFL franchise of the same name) leased a Birmingham, Mich., residence from Suh and his sister, Ngum Suh, and are now seeking twice the amount of the $100,000 security deposit, along with interest, court costs and attorney fees.

    The Packer family moved into the residence on March 15. They later moved out and notified the Suhs, who haven't returned the deposit and haven't allowed the Packers to retrieve private property still at the residence.

    The Suhs are also accused of violating the security deposit law, which states that a security deposit cannot be more than 1.5 times the amount of monthly rent.

    Stayed tuned for the other side of this one. Suh, meanwhile, heads to Philadelphia for the Lions' Week 6 matchup against the Eagles.

    Oh, Ndamukong Suh...

    If it looks like a duck...
    And walks like a duck...
    And quacks like a duck...

    This guy is a pos. And people wanted him, (at close to the same price I might add), instead of SB?

    Hindsight notwithstanding, apologise to the board immediately, (if you haven't already).

    Glad we passed on this guy. If he keeps this up, then he'll prove that we were better off with Bradford.

    Re: Oh, Ndamukong Suh...

    I was just about to post a topic pertaining to this. I will write more later since I'm on mobile. However, i have this to say.

    I wanted him over Bradford. Although I did change my mind after Bradfords rookie year. But I'm glad we didnt get this guy, for the sole reason he just seems like a bad human being and a borderline sociopath

    This guy is a pos. And people wanted him, (at close to the same price I might add), instead of SB?

    I never apologized. After Bradfords rookie year, I reverted and said we made the right pick. I had no reason to apologize because I thought Suh was a good player, but realized Bradford was the better pick for us. So, no reason to apologize. However, I will apologize now. This guy is a first class p.o.s. From what I hear on stories, what 99% of his nebraska teammates said (they don't like him), and what he does as a human being on and off the field...this guy like I said before is just a terrible human being. I apologize for ever considering him to be on our team.

    4 pillars or not, this guy isn't worth it on any team. I wonder how he is always calm, nice and collective in interviews. He literally seems like a sociopath that has 2 sides to him.
