Didn’t See This Posted...Garrett Doubles Down on N-Word Accusation

Post by Orangesteel » Fri Feb 14, 2020 3:12 am

Y’all see this? Day after he is reinstated Myles Garrett doubles down and says Rudolph threw out the racial slur during the melee. Damn. This guy is really going all out about this claim. Bonkers.

That's all he has to try and make himself look less like the out of control criminal he is. It's a shame Rudolph has to deal with it but that's the world we live in. The only way I'd believe him is if Pouncey or Decastro, who were right there would have heard it. Teammate or not, there's no way they'd defend him is he said something like that.
Howard Griffith had to resort to chop-blocking him during the 1997 AFC Championship Game. An incredulous Kirkland asked Griffith, “Why do you have to use cheap tactics like chop-blocking?” Griffith replied “Why do you have to be a 300-pound linebacker?”

Well Rudolph is I believe an acknowledged Magat so there's that. I heard Garret's interview and he came across thoughtful and articulate and what does he have to gain now that he is reinstated?? While no one here knows for sure what happened and probably never will, I dont think it is impossible that Rudolph was pissed getting hit and tackled a bit late in a losing game, frustrated, that his inner douche came out.

Well that is a huge accusation to throw out and you need evidence to back it up.

What Garrett has to gain is to find an excuse for his egregious behavior to try to restore his reputation. How many endorsements do you think Garrett is going to book after he clubbed Rudolph with a helmet?

Rupdolph was definitely frustrated. He got in Garrett's face after Rudolph was taken down. It is however, a huge leap to throwing out a word that is verboten in this day and age.

Not a single person has corroborated Garrett's account. Nobody. Great discussion about Garrett's bullshit right now on Golic and Wingo.

Best point made was who benefits from burying the audio Garrett claims the league has of the incident?

Why IN THE FUCK would the league protect a fringe NFL player like Mason Rudolph over a franchise level talent like Myles Garrett?

Answer: they wouldn't, If audio existed of Rudolph calling Garrett the N word, the league would release it faster than MC Hammer Jr.'s balcony furniture could hit the ground. It would add context as to why a budding superstar like Garrett would go absolutely ballistic at the end of a blowout win against the Browns' biggest and most hated rival and would immediately make Garrett a sympathetic figure publicly.

So yeah, Rudolph didn't say it. No ifs, ands or buts about it. This is Garrett's attempt to place blame elsewhere, when 100% of the blame is on Myles Garrett himself.

Sort of how people tried to place blame on Ben Roethlisberger for when MC Hammer Jr. freaked out. Nobody's doing it anymore, because it became clear MC Hammer Jr. is a mental midget and Roethlisberger has been proven 100% innocent.

Don't be surprised if another incident arises with Garrett. He isn't all there.

Rudolph should have pressed charges or sued him right away as many of us stated.

Maybe should have done that but what if in a court case under oath Rudolph is asked if he used a disgusting racial slur and he denied it and an audio recording surfaced that proved he lied, hmmmm. Counter suit, career ender etc??? Maybe Rudolph just wants this to go away to cover his ass. Maybe not but maybe so??? The guy in the interview below comes across a calm rational person, why would he go so ballistic over a physical confrontation the likes of which he has engaged in hundreds of times over his playing days high school/college)?? Does not make sense..... unless something egregious happened. Hey you can be a Steeler fan and call out Steeler players who are P.O.S. if they deserve it

Two of Garrett's Nigerian trainers did hear Rudolph say the N word but it wasn't on the football field but at 2 in the morning in a snowstorm on the way to get Subway sandwiches.

That's more believable than what Garrett claimed.

Dude....Garrett is claiming the NFL has audio of Mason calling this piece of utter shit the N word.

As I said above, why would the fucking league protect a fringe NFL player like Rudolph over an elite, franchise level talent like Garrett?

Oh yeah....they wouldn't. If audio existed, the NFL would look to protect the star player and would HAPPILY throw the racist fringe player to the wolves.

Get real. There isn't any audio because it didn't happen. Garrett was fined for punching Delanie Walker and had two absolutely uncalled for dirty hits on Trevor Siemian, one which ended his season. Garrett's a piece of shit, no matter what color he is.

The guy is a piece of shit.

First, drop it with the political bullshit.

Second, the "thoughtful and articulate" Garret is still an asshole if Mason did use the N word. Trying to brain someone because of using a word -- even a really bad inappropriate word -- is not a reasonable or rationale response. The end. Shut the fuck up, apologize, and go back to work. Doing anything other than that is missing the point by a mile.

For the record, it's a fine line, but mentioning the player's politics without judgement is not the same as making a political post. And I agree with your second point.

True. I think the contention is that "since he's a maga guy, he must be racist." Which is a touchy subject. But even if you focus on the last part - shut up and move on - he actually said that he's already past it (But he still called me the n word!!!). If he is, then why is he slinging shit again by bringing it up after his re-instatement? He's a hypocrite. He should have just apologized to the entire NFL and expressed gratitude that he's back playing football. End of story.

Oh, I completely agree COR-TEN. Myles is going to get some special "attention" in the first Steelers game this year.

<<Garrett sacks Mason and is on top of him.>>

Mason: You're bigger than me, get the fuck off!
Garett: What the fuck did you just call me?!
Mason: Hunh? What the fuck! Why are you ripping my helmet off?!

Etc, etc.

Right, and his homophonic reference to insect larva is just a non-judgemental faux pas.

whoopsie daisy! :roll:

What stinger8 is attempting is clever use of subtly provocative and incendiary language to rile up the masses and grab the popcorn.
It's cheap, but it also comes at the cost of exacerbating the problem instead of contributing to the solution.

I get it, it's an easy, low-brow entertainment form, but it does nothing to help the real societal issues that we all need to work to overcome.

In short, stinger8, you should stop while you're behind and shut the fuck up now.

The late David E. Davis, Jr, one of my favorite automotive journalists, used the same word to describe a car's trunk space relative to the other two vehicles in the comparison test and received several letters to the editor essentially calling him a racist. Even at about 10 years old, I was sad for the English language in the United States.

Rudolph should have Tim Younger put out an even stronger statement directly to Garrett or his representative. Remind him what slander is, and to put up concrete proof or zip it.

Not slander if Garrett really believes he heard it. Also, what damages would Rudolph claim?

It was investigated and no evidence was found, for whatever that is worth. Continuing to repeat it to the media can damage his reputation, for whatever that is worth as well.
