He’s done it again. Baltimore Ravens LB Terrell Suggs has opened his big mouth once again on a controversial topic. Recently Ray Lewis commented on the incident and said he was a believer in the conspiracy theory that the NFL and Commissioner Roger Goodell had something to do with the blackout in Super Bowl 47. The Ravens opened the second half with a 108-yard kickoff return TD by Jacoby Jones, making the score 28-6. After a sack of San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick, the lights suddenly went out. It appeared as if the rout was on for the Ravens, but the blackout gave the 49ers new life and they came five yards short of completing a huge comeback.
I understand why Lewis said something about it. He’s a talking head on ESPN now, he’s paid to talk. Suggs, on the other hand, is still an active player, and it’s not likely but it’s possible that there could be consequences to pay. If the blackout was a giant conspiracy then wouldn’t Suggs’ comments make the Ravens even more of a target of a screw job? But if the blackout was just a freak accident, then Suggs just looks stupid. The problem is nobody really knows for sure. Here’s the exact quote from a recent interview with Suggs:
“I was like Vegas, parlor tricks, you know what I mean? I was like, ahh, Roger Goodell, he never stops, he always has something up his sleeve. He just couldn’t let us have this one in a landslide huh? I thought he (Goodell) had a hand in it. Most definitely, he had a hand in it.”
I know Suggs is just being Suggs, but he should think before he speaks. The thing that is getting lost in all of this is that the Ravens won the game, they have the trophy and nobody can take that away from them. If you throw rocks at a bees’ nest you’ll get killed like Macaulay Culkin in My Girl, that’s because he was allergic to bees. That’s it.
