Myles Garrett Still Claiming Racial Slur

I mostly agree, that’s why I’m saying I really don’t care to pick sides. The situation should have never occurred, and that’s all there is to it. 

 

in the history of the cheap shots and deliberate injuries to an opponent and slurs delivered in an NFL game, that was the first time someone snapped that bad

 

he better show contrition when he shows up at HQ

Ah.  Because one person lies, all other racism is also a lie.  Solid, well adjusted thinking.

Where’s the evidence other than one overly aggressive man’s word? There are sound devices everywhere that would’ve picked up whatever was said.

Hayneworth stepped on a guy’s head without a helmet. RI the psycho had a helmet swung at him.  A hockey player just kicked someone with a skate last night.

You’re not this ignorant are you?  I hope not.  No slur is ok.  But if you are comparing the two, it’s absolutely insane.

 

and I have no idea what happened.  Neither does anyone else so it’s completely garbage to pretend like you do.  Every scouting report on Garrett is that he was a super mild mannered dude who might love art more than football.  

 

I don't think YOU need to be calling anyone ignorant.

 

I don't pretend to know what happened, Myles Garrett told us what happened.  So I'm commenting based on what he said.  Is this really that hard for you?

 

I once had fans (yes, more than 1) slanting their eyes at me.  Called me a dog eating M'fer.  Called me every single Asian slur possible.  I didn't swing on anyone or even have words with them.  I've been called racial slurs pretty much my whole life in many other instances too.

 

I'm glad that you have a hierarchy on which racial slurs are more inappropriate than others.

 

Super mild mannered dude huh?  Everyone expected Marvin Harrison to be involved in a shooting outside his bar right?

I've seen dozens of amazing things out there, another Garrett for the Raiders back in the day kicked his opponent in the helmet, against the Packers??, the replay is out there in some documentaries

 

nobody has done that to an opposing QB for that prolonged a play in garbagetime

 

and geez, the Steelers were meeting up with them again in a handful of weeks to perform a little more discreet payback

Brutal self-ownage here. Look up Garrett’s injuries to other players and penalty history.

Look, as far as I understand, trash talk is pretty common on a football field.  If mommas and sisters and wives are fair game, I think it would be naive to think that racial slurs don't come into it.

 

I didn't put my spikes away until I was almost 40 and in all those years I only ever heard one white guy drop an N-bomb on somebody. That guy got cracked on the head by one of his own teammates (who were all white guys) and never played another game for that club again.

The funny thing about it was that he said it to to my Mike 'backer whose response was "I'm not even black, I'm Hawaiian you dumb #uck" :lol:

Which was perfect cuz the entire defense (which was all black guys except me and the Mike) started howling and it instantly defused a dangerous situation.

Should he hit someone with a helmet? Of course not.  But I’m assuming you’re white (please correct me if I’m wrong).  If you’re Not black, you can never fully understand what being called that word does to you.  You really can’t.  It’s like women with c word.  I don’t get it but it is a total no no. 

 

I wouldn't be surprised if 'total no-no' words get used more frequently in football trash talk than we spectators know - BECAUSE of their power to evoke a reaction.

 

Remember the first Miami game, where one of the Miami DLmen got ejected like, on the first or second snap for throwing a punch at Cody Ford?   Why'd he do that?  Cody being black, I doubt he used the N word and it's sometimes not regarded as provocative from one black to another (like one woman calling another a b**** is different), but I'd guess Ford said something deliberately provocative. 

 

That's the game within the game.

I’d more easily forgive someone that lost their damn mind out there than I would someone that runs to the race card. I find that predictable and pathetic.

Nothing crazy for your regular defensive starter, but there have been situation where the guy displays anything but super mild mannered behavior.

That's a beautiful story.  Thank you for sharing it.  Where did you play?

 

There was some controversy in a local HS football game with my daughter's school about the N-word being tossed at one (DI recruit) player during a HS playoff game.  The game ended in a brawl where the coaches on that team charged the other bench.  The school denied it, and no evidence from all the video and stuff turned up, but I tend to believe there was enough smoke that probably some fire was involved.

I'm quite confident the league has a code for such words, enforced on the field and in one's own lockerroom

 

a rumour about a certain former pint-sized former Bills QB using a bad word and losing the respect of his entire non-Bills team instantly, floated around at the time, if it did happen it was dealt with internally

 

 

the team certainly had no use for him during his tenure, including a playoff game

First off let me be clear in saying that in no way shape or form does it justify his actions.  But Garrett was mic’d up for that game and there were field mics everywhere, yet no audio has been released or leaked.  If it didn’t happen it could’ve been easily disproved.  To me it looks like the NFL locked down an exceptionally bad PR situation.

 

A lot of things about this situation could’ve been a lot worse.  Garrett could’ve connected with that helmet swing with horrifying consequences.  But beyond Rudolph’s serious injury and Garrett’s lifetime ban it’d have ended there.

 

Now instead imagine the situation as it stood (no serious injuries) and audio of Rudolph dropping the N word on Garrett getting leaked.  The media storm, protests and backlash would’ve been massive.  Alienation of substantial demographic groups of fans and real damage to the shield.

 

Again, the allegations would’ve been very easy to disprove and there’s only one reason that’s not happening.

 

Edited to add: An important piece of info many might not be aware of is that In the locker room immediately after the incident Garrett was livid about Rudolph dropping the N word on him.  This wasn’t something that an agent came up with later.

The conspiracy theorist is strong in this one.

 

And the evidence is nonexistent, at least here.

And if MR didn’t say it, MG should face consequences.  I know if I had their money and someone falsely accused me of something like I would take them to court. 


What if Rudolph was asked to let it go so as not to dissuade players from coming forward when someone does utter a slur in the future?

 

Not saying that’s the case, but one could certainly understand if it were.

I played football through college and never heard that word used once by a non black person to a black person.  Happened several times in hockey. 
 

id like to think that a guy playing in a mixed sport like football would never say something like that.  And again if he didn’t, Mason should sue because that’s a pretty serious thing to be thrown around,  and I’d suspend Garrett again if there was evidence nothing was said.

Ah yes, the provocateur lies to stir up trouble. Part of the conspiratorial playbook. Could smell that from far off. Thanks for doing the legwork.

NP. Most the time I’d let it slide but on sensitive issues there should be zero tolerance for stuff like that.

This should have happened to Rivers this year. A guy on the Jags hit him, tried to help him up, and he got in his face and talked crap to him.  Dudes kinda of a punk.

That’s interesting but I’m always of the opinion that if someone accuses you of something that serious, you would do whatever it takes to clear your name.  Also if Garrett got sued, players would think twice about saying something like this.

 

i remember all the Roid head baseball guys like A Rod who threaten to sue when they were accused. Well none of them did and it turns out they were doing it.  If someone accuses me of something serious and I have the means, I’m clearing my name.

Well that certainly is true.  Small dogs bark the most.  Big dogs just bite. 

And if he is lying, I think he should be suspended again.  I can’t believe there is no audio given how mic’ed up everything is now.

 

and if I’m MR and didn’t say it, why won’t he sued for libel?

He probably wouldn't be able to prove he didn't say it either.

Although Garrett's actions were very bad & could have had a lot worse out come to them as far as injury than it did he seems to be a very intelligent person with a very moral type of out look on certain things .

 

I being caucasian have had conversations with African american friends in my life to help me to understand certain things I have had a major disagreement in those conversations to where i have been told that by changing the end of the N word from "er" to an "a" makes it okay in certain circles.

 

 IMHO neither is acceptable if we as people are trying to do away with the term & Garrett feels the same which i totally agree with him on !! If you read his thoughts in this article especially the last paragraph you will see his views of it & i couldn't agree more . With that i hope all those involved have learned from this situation !
