    Who leaked what happened in meeting? If Myles said what happened right away to people, media would have said he was making excuses for what he said. Prove it didn't happen. There is audio.

    Nearly every player on that field was black, and well over 200 lbs, and this very white looking qb is going to shout the "N" word lolol

    Why this isn’t a big deal? Had he said it, his career would have been ruined. Someone falsely accusing someone of something that could ruin someone’s career, nothing happens. Women accuse men of rape all the time, when the man is found innocent, nothing happens and the man is just supposed to be happy he didn’t get into trouble. Jussie Smollett is proof of this. Until false accusers start to get punished for trying to ruin someone’s career, it will continue.

    Who cares about a slur, that’s a word we cannot prove. What we can prove is Rudolph was pulling his helmet off first so Myles took his helmet. eye for an eye

    Why do black people always play victim whn we all seen the disgusting display of a horrible player nd we all seen the crime tht u did Myles u could have killed him but why now ur sayin racist comments by mason bullshit why didn't u say tht from jump u should be kicket out the league

  • Eric Claey

    Garrett lost the conversation when he used his helmet as a weapon. Then Garrett makes the racist accusation to win the argument. Won't happen. Even if it was true,"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me".

  • Corey Payne
    Corey Payne 20 days ago

    This is how I look at it. If Mason Rudolph truly did say it, it needs to be suspended or even kicked out of the league for what he said. The world doesn't need any more racism. If Myles Garrett is lying, then it needs to be addressed, simply because this is a pretty serious claim that could ruin Rudolph's career

    If I was Myles Garret, I would’ve said right after the game “I hit him in the head with his helmet because he called me a racial slur” not wait a day. What a joke.

    • Brady Phillips

      Frank B Parker exactly, I feel the same way. But he was literally asked if Mason said something to provoke it but he avoided the question for no reason

    • Frank B Parker
      Frank B Parker 20 days ago

      Even if he did call him a nagger it still doesn't give him the right to assault someone with a deadly. Blacks try to use that all the time as a reason for assaulting someone just to get away with their crime

    I believed and still believe Anita Hill. Reason? She had nothing to gain by lying. I don't and will never believe Myles Garrett. Reason? He had everything to gain by lying. His letter was a sham. He said he didn't expect leniency from the NFL by revealing why he got SO out of control. That's bull**t. There are no white reporters willing to call it out either. Look what happened to Merrill Hoge when he said Vince Young wouldn't last 5 years in the NFL. He was vilified as a racist. Myles Garritt is a racist. A coward, too.

    🍇🍷🍺🍂🍁 I call B.S. See Jesse SMOLLETT! Why not say this immediately after the game! This is not the first time Myles Garrett has had physical altercations! NFL found his statement Full of 💩 THIS CLOWN NEEDS TO BE IN JAIL! Why no Criminal Charges ??? Video! Written Statements from NFL! You don't need a victim statement! NEXT The NFL needs to understand kids see this ???! Next They need to not only test for Steroids, HGH, but For SARMS Same effect as steroids!

    Did you ever think Garrett didn’t want to put that out cause that would automatically and truly damage masons career and wanted it to stay private and not in the media just between the nfl and mason? Imagine if he would of stated “He called me a racial slu” right after the game it would of been very bad for the Steelers but he wanted it to stay private for safety reason maybe. Regardless the helmet swing was over the line in any situation restraint would have done more damage then words

    Garrett got a phone call from the French actor ... Jussie Smollet.... and the French actor gave him some advice.

    From what I have seen of myles I want to believe him but it seems weird the amount of time before it came out I did not think he was the type of guy to fly off the handle for nothing

  • William Scott Collier

    If he said it, Mike Tomlin would have heard would Art Rooney. You dont have a backup quarterback without a mic. If it was said after the helmet came off, pouncey would have heard it. Myles Smollett just wants a lesser suspension and wants to ruin another man's reputation. No one believes him. Not for a second.

    I don’t believe he said a racial slur. What kind of idiot is going to yell a racial slur in the face of a black guy while surrounded by a bunch of black guys? His own team would have turned on him. It sounds like an excuse to justify acting like a child.

  • Phil E
    Phil E 21 day ago

    Whether Rudolph said it or not, how does that justify hitting him in the head with a helmet? Racism doesn't give you a free pass to assault someone.

  • john Rawhten
    john Rawhten 21 day ago

    NFL DID investigate whether he said it or not and concluded he didn't. See what the left has done? Everything has to be seen through the spectrum of race. There were enough people within ear shot to hear it. This kind of thinking has invaded our sports, with this, and Colin K., to where now we can't get away from it. Might just have to tune out period cuz I am sick of being preached to when all I want to hear about is game stats.

    3 black players suspended w/o pay. 1 white player(the instagator) eventually fined. That enuf proof?

      Who threw punches and swung a helmet? The white qb got penalized and fined for his actions he didn’t throw any punches.

  • Rocky Hooah!

    Maybe Myles realized his actions were so thuggish that he felt embarrassed so he made up the racial slur comment in hopes to lesson the view of his thuggish actions.
    Just saying....

    It's ugly for the nation. The country is so diveded and at odds with one another. It makes us weak as a unit. Instead of focusing on what makes us all different in an attempt to further our status. Let's all just come together as Americans. And turn this mess around.
