NFL's Stevie Wonder Doesn't Suspend Suh

Under the category of really, really stupid, the NFL decided not to suspend Ndamukong Suh for kicking Houston Texan Matt Schaub on Thanksgiving.
From ESPN: Detroit Lions defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will not be suspended by the NFL for kicking Houston Texans quarterback Matt Schaub in the groin.
The incident took place in the Lions' overtime loss to the Texans on Thanksgiving Day, when Suh's left foot struck an unsuspecting Schaub as Suh was falling.
 League spokesman Greg Aiello said the incident still will be reviewed for a potential fine.
This was not Suh's first run-in with the league's disciplinary office, nor was it his first Thanksgiving incident.
Last year, Suh was ejected from the Lions' Thanksgiving Day loss to the Green Bay Packers and was suspended two weeks after he stomped on the arm of offensive lineman Evan Dietrich-Smith.
Suh said that play wasn't intentional, but the NFL believed it was malicious enough to suspend him.
Although the NFL uses an escalating punishment scale based upon repeat offenses, the league clearly deemed this instance to be accidental.
Obviously, Stevie Wonder was reviewing the video tape because anybody who saw the kick is completely blind.
You be the judge:
