Whenever there's a big hit, clean or not, the most frequent discussion surrounding it is whether or not it's suspension-worthy. Not if it was situationally a good play, not the affect it had on the game, not even about if the guy on the receiving end is ok. All of the talk is centered around clean/dirty, suspend/not suspend, how many games, etc.

That's as big of an indicator as I can think of that the culture has shifted to the point of obsession with suspensions.
