Terrell Suggs Says Roger Goodell Caused The Super Bowl Blackout

Illustration for article titled Terrell Suggs Says Roger Goodell Caused The Super Bowl Blackout

Terrell Suggs recently sat down for an interview that will air on tonight's episode of E:60, and he talked some shit about Roger Goodell. Specifically, he blamed Goodell for the blackout that delayed the 49ers-Ravens Super Bowl for 34 minutes.


Here's Suggs's conspiracy theory, via ESPN:

"I was like Vegas, parlor tricks, you know what I mean?" Suggs said. "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 had a hand in it," Suggs said. "Most definitely, he had a hand in it."

Think Suggs is crazy? Not so fast! Our own John Koblin attended an event yesterday where Roger Goodell addressed a group of Hearst employees, and he had this to say:

People tell me, Who you rooting for for the game? That's another favorite question besides, What's your favorite? We root for the team that's losing. Cause what we're interested in is close games. So whenever I go to a game, whoever's losing, you can count on the commissioner. It doesn't make any difference, by the way. I don't have that kind of authority.

As you surely remember, the 49ers were losing 28-6 at the time of the blackout, but came storming back with 17 unanswered points after the lights came back on. Dun dun dunnnnnnn!

Suggs went on to say some other stuff about how Goodell plays favorites in the league because he likes to hang out with John Elway before Broncos games. Regardless of how you feel about Suggs making crazy accusations, you have to appreciate his willingness to crap on the commissioner. And he did say one thing that we can all get behind:

"I definitely don't think he's doing a good job, and I don't think he should be making $10 million a year. That's just my personal opinion."


Well said, Terrell.
