Ndamukong Suh was famously quoted a few years ago:
“I’m just a different breed. I hate to say that, but it’s kind of like, no athlete in the NFL is like any other person. You can’t treat everybody the same exact way. That would be unfair, but there’s guidelines that everybody needs to follow behind, so that’s more or less the understanding that I needed to see.”
The 2010 #2 overall pick and later NFL Defensive Player of the year that season is certainly a polarizing figure. And all that hate he receives, well he’s certainly earned it. He’s made enough transgressions and errors that his dirty reputation is justifiable. But if you believe he’s misunderstood and you believe that he’s authentic in what he said there, well, maybe Ndamukong Suh is making an attempt to understand other athletes- those from across the pond.
He was on hand, along with fellow Detroit Lions DL Ziggy Ansah to take in the Manchester United versus Real Madrid game at Michigan Stadium today. He witness history as it broke a record for soccer attendance in the United States. You can see both players pictured above in the Wolverines tunnel.

Ndamukong Suh waited an hour in the tunnel to meet Cristiano Ronaldo.
