Baltimore Ravens' Terrell Suggs Says The Superbowl Blackout Was Planned
If you thought Beyoncé’s fire halftime performance was the reason for the blackout at the Super Bowl others might disagree with you.
Like ESPN’s analyst Ray Lewis who told USA Today’s Nate Davis, “I’m not gonna accuse nobody of nothing — because I don’t know facts.”
“But you’re a zillion-dollar company, and your lights go out? No. (Laughs) No way.”
He has this theory that the NFL was to blame for the blackout when his former team the Baltimore Ravens were in the lead with 28-6 in the 3rd quarter.
Lewis isn’t the only with these strong feelings, other players from the team agree, like Terrell Suggs, who blatantly accused NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for the blackout.
Suggs told the Baltimore Sun, “I was like Vegas, parlor tricks, you know what I mean?”
“I was like, ahh, [NFL Commissioner] 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?”
When asked if Suggs thought Goodell was accountable for the blackout Suggs stated, ““I thought he had a hand in it. Most definitely, he had a hand in it.”
Suggs has an imagination -- he says Goodell was acting suspicious prior to the Super Bowl and was acting extra friendly with John Elway before the game.
