In a recent television interview with ESPN’s Lisa Salter, Baltimore Ravens linebacker, Terrell Suggs, made a moronic statement alleging that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell conspired against the Ravens by engineering a power outage designed to rob Baltimore of their game leading momentum In last year’s Super Bowl.
Really? Let’s file that claim with other “brilliant” statements such as, “Miley Cyrus is a good role model for kids.” “The government shutdown won’t really happen.” And “Amazon.com is ‘Mom and Pop’ company that’s sure to fail.” T-Sizzle’s claim is as ridiculous as it is wrong.
Why would Commissioner Goodell want to risk the ratings drop that such a delay could create? Why would he invite such embarrassment on the NFL? Why would he want to diminish the great story of Ray Lewis possibly winning a Super Bowl in his final season? Why T-Sizzle, why?
I’m all for a good conspiracy theory but this one is really weak. Better yet, it is so weak that it is utterly non-existent. Suggs can play football and no one questions his on the field ability. One has to be fairly smart and coachable to play football in a league where the playbook reads more like rocket science. I’m sure that Terrell is an intelligent man, but c’mon T, this was not your brightest moment.
