What Suggs is accusing Goodell of is astonishing Dan Leberfeld

The power went out during the Super Bowl in February.

The Baltimore-San Francisco game was delayed for 34 minutes during the third quarter. The Ravens were up 28-6 when the lights went out.

Baltimore Ravens OLB Terrell Suggs thinks NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was behind the blackout.

“I was like Vegas, parlor tricks, you know what I mean?” Suggs told ESPN. “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?

“I thought he had a hand in it. Most definitely, he had a hand in it

“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. 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.

“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.”

What an allegation!

That Goodell was behind the blackout.
