Football and Thanksgiving are an American tradition. As you inhale your turkey, check out the play from the Detroit Lions vs. the Green Bay Packers game that caused Lions DT Ndamukong Suh to be booted out of the game for unsportsman like conduct.
In his post game interview, Suh attempted to rationalize the play:
“What I did was remove myself from the situation the best way that I felt in me being held down in the situation that I was in,” Suh said, via NFL.com. “My intentions were not to kick anybody, as I did not. [I was] removing myself, as you see, I’m walking away from the situation. And with that I apologize to my teammates, and my fans and my coaches for putting myself to be in position to be misinterpreted and taken out of the game.”
“I was on top of a guy being pulled down and trying to get up off the ground, which is why you see me pushing his helmet down,” Suh said. “As I’m getting up, I’m getting pushed so I’m getting myself unbalanced. . . . With that a lot of people are going to interpret it as or create their own storylines, . . . but I know what I did, and the man upstairs knows what I did.”
