Merton Hanks: I fined Ndamukong Suh to get his attention

NFL Vice President of Operations Merton Hanks, the man who fines players for on-field misconduct, says he wanted to do something this week to make Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh take notice.

Hanks admits that Suh’s hit on Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden on Sunday was “not an egregious play,” but Hanks fined Suh $31,500 because he thinks it’s time that Suh pays attention to the league’s efforts to make the game safer.

“The fine is more than the minimum because he is a repeat offender and I wanted to get Ndamukong Suh’s attention in this regard. I’ve got to help him course correct,” Hanks told Andrea Kremer of NFL Network.

Hanks, who was a Pro Bowl cornerback for the 49ers in the 1990s, believes that Suh should have been flagged for roughing the passer on the play in question. But the referee had a clear view of the play and didn’t throw his flag. Maybe in addition to getting Suh’s attention, the league office needs to get the referees’ attention to clear up what does and does not constitute roughing the passer.


So this basically confirms every Lions fan's worst fear: our team and its players are being unfairly targeted by the NFL.


With this admission this retard not only opens himself to what should be an easy appeal to the fine, but potentially a lawsuit from Suh (Unless NFl/Union bylaws prevent this) and should cost him his job. Even if he did do that, he is a F%$kin moron for admitting it.

"He didnt do anything egregous (fine worthy) but I Fined him anyways. LoLoLoL.


Yup, duffus pretty much admitted that they are harassing Suh. I'm sure that if there would have been at least 10 other plays from other game tapes that he could have used, but he intentionally chose Suh to try and make a point, and then had the gall to say so. This should be overturned on appeal.

This is the last time I'll respond because I don't wish to keep beating a dead horse, but I know that there are some people who are fairly good at organizing some petitions against the NFL, or was that Sly?

Having said that, could we start and email petition, to flood Mr. Hankmans email address with APPROPRIATE emails about how INAPPROPRIATE his bullying tactics are? The whole voice of the people thing?

Is anyone interested? Does anyone know how to do it?
