Despite the fact that they won the Super Bowl last season, some members of the Ravens aren’t entirely convinced that the blackout was a simple accident. Former Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis “joked” that the blackout was a conspiracy and now current Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs is joining in on the ridiculousness.
Suggs, in an interview with Lisa Salters of ESPN, says he believes Roger Goodell “had a hand” in blacking out the game to keep it closer.
“I was like Vegas, parlor tricks, you know what I mean?” Suggs says. “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?”
A somewhat stunned Salters made sure to confirm Suggs’ belief. And the linebacker confirmed it.
“I thought he had a hand in it,” Suggs said. “Most definitely, he had a hand in it.”
