Titus Young and Ndamukong Suh are embarrassing the Lions
The Lions' off-season hasn't exactly gotten off to an ideal start.
The team has not released wayward wide receiver Titus Young even after:
- He reportedly purposely lined up in the wrong position during a game and was sent home.
- He embarrassed the team upon his return to practice with defiant behavior during drills and a brief, awkward media session. He was subsequently sent home again.
- He recently took to Twitter and compared himself to Tupac as a martyr and complained about not getting the ball enough.
Every day Young is a part of the Lions, considering the organization's issues last off season, and how they seemed to have a genuine bearing on an awful 4-12 season, the wrong message keeps getting stronger.
Also, it was revealed by celebrity gossip website TMZ this week that forever self-promoting defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh will be on the reality TV show "The Dive."
Yes, the 305-pound defensive tackle, who has garnered more schlocky TV appearances (he was on the dreadful dating show "The Choice" last off season), endorsements ("It's turkeylious"), headlines for traffic-related misteps ("I'm advising you to leave now") and run-ins with the league office ("What I did was try to remove myself best from the situation I felt in me") than quarterback sacks the last two seasons, will be hitting the high dive. Undoubtedly, "splat" will be the best way to describe his entry into the water.
Three unnamed Lions players have been quoted by TMZ of criticizing Suh's appearance on "The Dive." Great. The Lions. TMZ.
Why the Lions are, apparently, endorsing this, again sends an the wrong message.
The Lions' organization from every level should be in the process of re-dedicating themselves to winning football games..
Young and Suh are mocking that notion and it is, frankly, embarrassing.
