N’damukong Suh will take his choir boy act to ESPN this week as he sat down for a one on one interview to air during their 3-hour Sunday NFL countdown. If this were any other player in the same situation I’d be itching to watch. But I already know what Suh does when he’s interviewed. He turns into the sweetest kindest gentlest very large person you’ve ever seen. He’s softspoken, articulate, polite and all “I don’t know why people think I’m an asshole” etc. etc.
Last season when Suh appeared on CBS’s NFL show people expected fireworks but they got nada as Suh was on his bestest behavior. Definitely tune in if you haven’t seen him do his thing on the media before.
Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh says that to his knowledge he has “never hurt anyone through playing the game of football.”
Before I jump into this, let me just say that GQ does some fantastic work when it comes to sports and sports writing. To mark the upcoming NFL season the magazine’s September issue features nice photo spreads of both Cam Newton and Victor Cruz as well as an in depth article on Detroit Lions DT Ndamukong Suh. The Suh article is absolutely worth reading because it contains a lot of gems on the tough player who many have pegged as the dirtiest player in the league.
Through this article we find out that:
During the offseason Suh still lives with his parents in his old bedroom — it’s a cultural thing.
His sistes is his manager and gate keeper.
Suh started off playing soccer (as did his sister).
He really doesn’t like to talk a lot but when he does he’s thoughtful and he’s a good pitchman for the products he endorses.
His great-grandfather was 7’3 but his father is 5’8
Remember that time Ndamukong Suh got into a car crash with two other women in the car? Well CBS is reporting that one of the women believes she deserves more than her medical bills and wage losses to be covered and little something something extra on top. Nooooooo she wants ONE MILLION DOLLARS.
