Baltimore Ravens linebacker Terrell Suggs was anything but a gracious winner as his team defeated the New England Patriots to advance to the Super Bowl. Suggs looked like a ******* with these postgame comments: “These are the most arrogant pricks in the world, starting with [coach Bill] Belichick on down. Tell them to have fun at the Pro Bowl. Arrogant *******.” Oh wait, there’s more “That’s funny, ever since Spygate, they can’t seem to get it done,” he said in a mock tone to no one in particular. “I don’t know what it is.” Then Suggs changed his tone. “People don’t like them because they win,” Suggs said of the Patriots. “They are a great team. And they have every right to be who they are. And we respect them. It’s a rivalry, it’s heated, you know, but even enemies can show respect. “All b.s. aide, all ego and arrogance aside, that is one hell of a ball [club],” he continued. “I’m speaking to you with so much humility … If we went through somebody else, it wouldn’t have been the same game. Yeah it’s a rivalry between them and us, between me and 12. Any other team this win would’ve been unjustified. Who 12 is. Who their head coach is. Who their owner is. “We have the utmost respect for them.” Well, at least he sort of corrected himself. Paul M.
