Garrett is a piece of excrement. Like it wasn't bad enough he assaulted Rudolph physically, now Garrett has to create lies attacking Rudolph's character to try to justify his own reprehensible actions?

What a moron. The thing is, I believe someone gave him bad advice. Somebody has been in his ear. He was talked into making that claim. 

A useful idiot. Glad it seems to have backfired on him and whomever put him up to it.

Pretty sad commentary. Took him a week to come up with this. garret, in his short career is building quite the reputation.

Google him, he has quite the history of late hits on QBs, in fact earlier in the year a late by hit took out the Jets QB for the year, maybe career ending.

The only thing Rudolph did wrong was charge him after Decastro had him back up. Mason came out yesterday and apologized for his part in the melee. Pretty classy. Pouncey's suspension was reduced from 3 game to 2, then Garrett pulls the race card.

NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said the league looked into Myles Garrett’s allegations that Mason Rudolph used a racial slur last Thursday night before the brawl “and found no such evidence.”

Report: Garrett Accused Rudolph Of Using Racial Slur Thursday Night During Appeal Hearing (Update)


Did a racial slur from Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph directed at Cleveland Browns defensive end Myles Garrett escalate the melee that took place Thursday night? According to a Thursday morning report by ESPN.com, that’s what Garrett claimed during his indefinite suspension appeal hearing with the NFL on Wednesday.

According to Josina Anderson and Adam Schefter of ESPN, Garrett alleged that Rudolph called him a racial slur just prior to the Thursday night melee that took place at the end of the game. That melee resulted in Garrett ripping off Rudolph’s helmet and then swinging it and hitting the quarterback in the head with it.

Rudolph’s legal team, along with the Steelers, have vehemently denied Garrett’s racial slur accusations.

“Mason vehemently denies the report of being accused of using a racial slur during the incident Thursday night in Cleveland,” Steelers PR spokesman Burt Lauten said in a statement. “He will not discuss this accusation any further and his focus remains on preparation for Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals.”

On Wednesday, Rudolph told reporters he didn’t say anything to provoke Garrett or escalate the situation.
Rudolph’s attorney, Timothy M. Younger, has also released a statement concerning Garrett’s racial slur allegations against Rudolph.

“According to ESPN, in his appeal, Myles Garrett falsely asserted that Mason Rudolph uttered a racial slur toward him, prior to swinging a helmet at Mason’s uncovered head, in a desperate attempt to mitigate his suspension. This is a lie.
This false allegation was never asserted by Garrett in the aftermath of the game, never suggested prior to the hearing, and conspicuously absent in the apology published by the Browns and adopted by Garrett.

“The malicious use of this wild and unfounded allegation is an assault on Mason’s integrity which is far worse than the physical assault witnessed on Thursday. This is reckless and shameful. We will have no further comment.”

According to Tom Withers of the Associated Press, no Browns players have mentioned anything about Rudolph using racial slur to this point. Additionally, several Steelers players such as defensive captain Cameron Heyward and guard Ramon Foster have both been since quoted as saying that Rudolph used no such slur.

“I can tell you personally I talked to Mason right after the game and I said, ‘How did this escalate?’ And he told me he kept dragging him to the ground and they were going back and forth, but it never got to racial slur. For it to be used in your appeal is stupid to me,” Heyward said on Thursday.

Foster talked about the soon-after-post-game tweet from Anderson of ESPN that suggested that Rudolph probably said something off color to get Garrett to react the way he did Thursday night. Anderson has since deleted that tweet, however.

“The people that painted a picture of him saying a racist remark or him grabbing him in the groin area is ludicrous,” Foster said in a radio interview a few days ago.

As of right now, it doesn’t seem like Garrett has much backing in the way of evidence that Rudolph used a racial slur last Thursday night. The fact that it took nearly a week for Garrett to bring that accusation up, and during his appeal hearing at that, makes it sound like the Browns defensive lineman is attempting to do or say anything to get his indefinite suspension shortened.

No #Browns players have mentioned racial slur to this point. Locker room opens momentarily.

It's so easy in this culture to be painted with this brush. I feel for Mason and in no way believe that he is guilty of what Myles is accusing him.

Even if he did, it's not right, but IMHO not deserving of assault with a weapon. Since when did someone else using a word justify an attack of this magnitude on National T.V. What an over sensitive state we have become.

The false accusation is unforgivable. The assault with a helmet is terrible, but at least it happened in the heat of the moment. The bogus claim of racism was a considered, premeditated attack. Completely unwarranted, completely unsubstantiated.

When are people who make these kinds of false, damaging claims going to be punished the way their victims are? This bullshit is not okay.

When all is lost and the argument over, play the race card. It's very, very sad, but if there is a silver lining I believe a few in or society is realizing this for what it is. The video clip I posted is a bit long, but well worth watching. It says it all.

I'm assuming some time after Jussie Smollet faces his long overdue appointment with Lady Justice.  It appears now he's counter suing for Malicious Prosecution... which is beyond ironic and hypocritical since the ONE THING that didn't happen was prosecution LOL!

Mason got hit with a $50K fine. More importantly he was attacked and slandered by Garrett. I think I would consider legal action to not only recoup the fine amount, regardless if it is reduced or eliminated, and look to take Garrett out of the game beyond what the NFL might decide.

Society has seen enough race cards played to understand that way too many are the product of a creative imagination and to extricate someone from responsibility. This, sadly, seems to reflect both.

I’ve been on the sidelines of Steeler games. What I observed was not only was racial slur usage quire common tossed around more often that baseballs in a bullpen. There were even more vile things discussed about the activities of one’s mother’s service to the opposing team.

The fact that there was only one offered in that Cleveland game is a joke. It’s a running dialog all game long.
