If Garrette, “Thought he heard it.” He would have been saying something about it before he left the field.

This white guy is a true racist. He thinks he can hide his racism by defending the blacks with no reason.

I think Tomlin's wording laid the case for Rudolph to sue Garrett for defamation of character. He should do it....unless he thinks subpoenas and outside investigation would in fact turn something up. That would be a bad day for everyone but Garrett...especially the NFL if it indicates they buried the sound. I agree with Max. I think Garrett thought he heard something that wasn't actually said.

Hey Max - if Myles Garrett THOUGHT he heard the N word, why would he apologize to Rudolph after the game?
5ghostshadow 3 months ago
Sorry Max. Garrett did not hear Rudoulph say anything. If he did hear it, he would've said that on day 1 and not day 7 as the hole is getting deeper for him.

Tomlin is an idiot. He's 100 feet away. A white guy who would call a black guy the n-word would definitely lie to another black guy.

Garrett trying to use the ol get out jail free card. He said a word so it’s justified to do whatever I want. That’s not ok and very confusing to children.

Bruh to be honest with you I am on Myles Garrett's side have been from the beginning,but for Mike Tomlin to come out like this,I still believe Garrett but Rudolph does have more of my understanding now so I don't think Rudolph is a racist,I believe he just got caught up in the moment and made a mistake.

If your a Democrat the "N" is the biggest disrespectful word you can use, of your anyone else that word means nothing to no one black white spanish, it's a word and if you put power behind it which is dumb to put power behind a word that makes it everything bad in the book. Grow up move on from the word and stop being a victim of a word!!

Myles Garrett threw the quarterback to the ground several seconds after the ball was gone. In the NFL that is called a late hit and is a personal foul. That was the incident that started the scrum. These two clowns are so concerned about the politics that they forgot how the play went down.

First sentence is a lie, hit was on time. Rudolph started and restarted the fight.

Either way, have to give Tomlin props on defending his player.
0531jos 3 months ago
@Kevin Swiber It's difficult for me to understand what else Garrett could do to convince people. You know Garrett asked the league for the audio of the incident on that night, no? He thought the league had audio, and he wanted to get his hands on it? Contrast that attitude vs. "I'll sue you if you don't stop talking about it!"
Kevin Swiber
Kevin Swiber 3 months ago
Nobody knows but the 2 players involved. Most of the public, including the media, don't think Rudolph said it. I'm not arguing that, just like when a coach defends his players. He did it during the anthem protests too...

Its really quite simple - Mike Tomlin is only defending his QB because 1. The owners coax him too, 2. Job to protect 3. Team unity 4. Rudolph is probably the last reason for speaking up... IF IT WAS ABOUT RUDOLPH He would have spoken about it LONG TIME AGO!

Softball interview. Garrett isn't dumb, he knows he doesn't want his past actions and the fight to hurt is career future and life after football. What better way to continue to preserve your name then to justify your actions by accusing Rudolph of using the n-word? Garrett now adds the "stupid" part. Before it was " I think I heard" or "I believe I heard." Fast forward and now it's "I know I heard." And the cherry on top, "I don't want to make this a racial thing." BS that's exactly what this is and was from the first accusation. Sounds consistent with lying to me.

Lmao Mason Rudolph is a bust at best. But the league protects QB’s and receivers. He was driven into the ground and got pissed. Dude was clearly trying to injure him.

Okay, I get it now. This is a schtick. They just take turns taking opposite stances. Not a single guy, mostly of them black, did not hear Rudolph said that but Garrett, and Garrett didn't say that was said until he realized the situation he got himself into.

Garrett told John Dorsey and Larry Ogunjobi that night, this is a matter of public record, how do you not know this.

Nobody wants to hear the N word but every other rap song has the word in it. I've been called cracker or white cracker and it has never bothered me a bit. It's just a word nothing more. People find it offensive but they dam sure don't have a problem saying it 50 times in one rap song

Miles Garrett is a racist punk. He just wanted to try to justify his f**k up and used race as a means to try to lessen his suspension. If that was said to him he would have immediately said it as he was leaving the field, not wait after he and his camp had time to make up this lie. Another Jessie Smollett

It went from a disorderly conduct fist fight to an assault with a weapon because someone maybe or maybe not said something? Are you kidding me? This is how our society dissolves itself on national TV.

Miles Garrett should take & pass a series of polygraph tests, or else be banned. Racism is terrible. Fake racist accusations are worse. Jussie Smollett should spend YEARS behind bars.

This nonsense is ANCIENT HISTORY ESPN. ANCIENT HISTORY. As a sports fan it would be nice if programs like First Take, and others would focus more on sports, not continuously revisiting old topics. This is PURE NONSENSE !!!! Very very few people, probably very biased people actually believe Miles Garrett. It’s DEAD NEWS let it go Please !!!!
Casey 3 months ago
I’ve never been in a situation where the “N” word was used like that and it wasn’t made public immediately. He woulda told one of his teammates before he was in the locker room and definitely before the next few days. Hopefully he didn’t say it. It just seems unlikely he did and only one person is covering it up. Also seems unlikely NFL would cover it up. If a cover up of that leaked they would have more problems then they did over the Kaepernick issue.

So just because Tomlin doesn’t think he said it means he didn’t? I bet had you asked Riley Coopers teammates would he call a black man a N-word they would have said NO! Had their not be a video of Cooper saying it he would have said I never said it. So just because Tomlin defended him, an just because Rudolph says I didn’t say it doesn’t mean he didn’t say it!

Oprah isn't so lonely on the Fortune 500 list of BILLIONAIRES anymore... as now there are 5 black American Billionaires... 380,000 black millionaires in the USA... the American Dream is for ANYONE with the HUNGER to get out there and EARN IT...like Stephen A did!

Max believes it based on the evidence? What evidence? Based on Garrett’s word? Because that’s the only “evidence” that supports it was said. That’s a really weak argument act, Max.
0531jos 3 months ago
Garrett's actions are completely consistent with someone who was called the n-word. He told John Dorsey that night. He tried to get audio from the league that night.
Anthony Dedrick
Anthony Dedrick 3 months ago
Whether Tomlin believes he said it or not is irrelevant. Does anyone truly believe he would come out and even allude to being against his own player? Does anyone believe he would even give the air of not supporting his player? He had to come out and say something. And sure, he hasn’t said it to his own teammates. Doesn’t mean he didn’t say it to Myles Garrett. Max doesn’t believe there are problematic players to have ever played in the NFL? Richie Incognito anyone?
