This week marked the return of Lions’ Pro Bowl defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh from his two week suspension. It would also be the first time his fans and members of the media would have a chance to talk to him and hear what he had to say. The only problem was that Suh didn’t want to say anything. There’s nothing wrong with fans wanting to hear something from Suh or the media asking questions that people want answered. Just like Suh has the right to not answer those questions. I don’t have a problem with Suh not addressing the fans or the media but he must realize that what he does and doesn’t do will come with criticism whether it is positive or negative. Suh seems like he wants to embrace his popularity but also remain as private as possible. This is a very thin line and a hard one to stay on. Suh is a well spoken and intelligent young man and this is something he must learn sooner and not later.
