The NFL gives certain players preferential treatment, says one star quarterback's fiancee, and that's more clear now than ever after last week's incident involving Aaron Rodgers and Ndamukong Suh.
Kelly Hall, who is engaged to Detriot Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford, says Suh's reputation contributed to the attention that play received.
In a post to Instagram, Hall quoted former NFL official Mike Pereira, who claimed the NFL only fined Suh $70,000 for stepping on Rodgers because Suh is a high profile player.

"Thank you. Pretty sure Matthew's leg looks a lot damn worse right now from when he got stepped on/cleated in the same game. But it wasn't Suh.. And he's not Aaron Rodgers, so no one would think twice about it. #nflbias #givemeabreak #DETROITvsEVERYBODY"
Hall's fiancee and his teammates visit the Dallas Cowboys in the divisional round of the NFC playoffs Sunday.
