The Super Bowl XLVII blackout accusations just keep coming. Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs is about to make headlines everywhere for an interview he gave ESPN’s Lisa Salters that will air on E:60 tonight at 7 PM.
Suggs rips commissioner Roger Goddell for his salary and blames him for turning the lights out in New Orleans. Here’s a transcript per David Zurawik of The Baltimore Sun.
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?”
LISA SALTERS: “So you think Roger Goodell had turned the lights out?”
TERRELL SUGGS: “I thought he had a hand in it. Most definitely, he had a hand in it.
Suggs went on to say that he saw Goodell “laughing it up” with John Elway on the sideline after halftime. “You’re the commissioner of this league, you’re supposed to make sure [everyone] is playing on an even playing field. I definitely don’t think he’s doing a good job and I definitely don’t think he should be making ten million [dollars] a year.”
