It's one thing when crazy paranoid fans(like me) says things about it -like the fact all 6 seeds won a superbowl in a 6 year span up to 2012 among other statistics improbabilities(impossibilities?) that have taken place more and more recently, but it's another when players start showing concern. And this time it's from the Superbowl winners, not losers.
Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs accuses NFL commissioner Roger Goodell of having a role in the Super Bowl blackout during an interview on ESPN's "E:60" that will air Tuesday.
The Ravens led the 49ers 28-6 before the lights went out for 34 minutes at the Superdome in the Super Bowl. San Francisco rallied after the blackout, forcing Baltimore to hold on for a tight win.
"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?"
ESPN NFL commentator Ray Lewis brought up a conspiracy theory recently, but Suggs pointed the finger directly at Goodell.
"I thought he had a hand in it," Suggs said. "Most definitely, he had a hand in it."
Suggs said he believes Goodell favors some teams over others.
"We walk out of the Denver game, and linebackers are warming up on their sideline, and who do we see talking with John Elway, and it's like hmmm. I thought, your commissioner is supposed to be neutral," Suggs said. "He ain't supposed to be on one side or the other; he's supposed to be in the box. I saw him on their sideline and I was like, huh, I know who he's going for. I think he definitely has his favorites."
Suggs added, "He'll deny it but, like I said, when I run out of the tunnel and the first thing I see is John Elway laughing it up, I'm definitely going to feel some way about that. You're the commissioner of this league and you're supposed to make sure everything is being played on an even playing field. 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."
So should we start emaling Goodell and ask for permission if we can win one this year or does he have the Donkeys locked in?

Too funny.Wasn't Goodell driving the Ray Lewis Farewell Victory Tour bus last year?
Because Roger the rocket scientist knew the Ravens would suck after the blackout?
If people really believe any of this nonsense, why watch football. If you believe it, you believe football is wrestling, so why do you watch?
Why watch any sport? Watch, don't bet.
But from FIFA to NBA to Football, if you don't believe it, you haven't watched sports enough. It happens. I just try to put it out of my mind and as Bill says, "don't worry about things you can't control."
