After Monday night’s loss at Lambeau Field, Ravens running back Ray Rice teed off on Green Bay.
“I didn’t see anything special,” Rice said. “They put us in
the middle of nowhere and it’s not a real exciting place. Everything about this place is terrible, to be honest with you.”
On Tuesday, Rice apologized.
Rice’s mea culpa came via Twitter: “As a man I would
like to apologize the fans of green bay you can’t judge a book by it’s
cover and for me to talk about your city was wrong.”
Nice move by Rice. He surely was frustrated after a loss that dealt a serious blow to his team’s playoff hopes. One of the problems with the NFL is that cameras and microphones are usually around at those deflating moments when players are most likely to say something out of character.
Then again, given that the purpose of this site is to write about such moments, I probably shouldn’t call it a “problem.”
