Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh continues his media assault on Tuesday when he sits down with ESPN’s Hannah Storm on “SportsCenter Special: NFL Face to Face with Hannah Storm” at 9 p.m. on ESPN2.
Suh will take Storm on a tour of the Nebraska weight-room facility that he funded with a $2.6 million gift before the Lions drafted him in 2010.
SportsCenter ran a snippet of the interview on Monday.
“I would never hurt somebody because why would I want somebody to hurt me,” Suh said when asked about players’ accusations that he’s a dirty player and tries to hurt people. “Taking someone’s livelihood away and their opportunity to fend for their family and grow, for someone to say that, it’s kind of outrageous.”
Storm then asked Suh about suggestions that he may need anger management classes.
“It’s funny to me,” Suh said. “Like I said, I don’t have issues. (I’m not) beating up people in bars. It just doesn’t make sense to me. I think people try to make their own opinion and I think it’s a storyline. It’s a great storyline.
“I understood this year that a lot of people seeing me as a dirty player is a good storyline to have and that’s what it is to me. It’s kind of comical to me to keep saying something and really don’t have any substance behind it.”
