Witch Hunt

The Lions Ndamukong Suh has been in my opinion the subject of a witch hunt by the media as well as the NFL. The Lions in general have been the whipping boys for the media for quite some time, now they have zeroed in on their target. The media has gone out of its way to highlight every bad thing Suh has done. You can say that the media is just reporting on the news, but that would be inaccurate. Sports Talk Radio and ESPN programs are all the rage right now. There is a slant, an interpretation if you will of the news. The opinion of media types that becomes sports fan’s reality. So the mainstream media decides which stories to run and the slant that they put on it. That slant seems to be overwhelmingly slanted against Suh.

How many other players in this league could live under the microscope that this player has and not go insane? Every move he makes is questioned. Saying that "he is not a leader" because he did not attend a VOLUNTARY mini-camp. Yet, Suh comes in at the same time consistently and is in shape every year. Fans and the media are questioning whether he wants to be a Lion, just because his contract extension is not worked out yet. If you remember Matthew Stafford’s deal did not get done right away either. Suh is not a saint, but most Defensive Linemen are not. Does he do things to bring negative attention sometimes? Yes he does and some of his actions out there on the field that I do not condone. However, I believe that enough is enough when it comes to a voluntary mini-camp and a contract situation. He is one of our own, let’s not participate in the witch hunt.
