Vontaze Burfict, the Raiders' linebacker, had refused to speak to reporters after the 12-game suspension, which ended his 2019 season after just four games. After the monstrous non-football act that ended Brown's defensive demise of Myles Garrett's season after 10 games, Burfice's name immediately surfaced, largely in comparison to Garrett's.
And that was enough to make Burfict break his silence.  "This fight happened last night and my name appears everywhere," said Burfict Vic Tafur of TheAthletic.com. "Come on, brother, it's always a bad picture when painting, I never go to the Ronald McDonald House to help the children, it's always negative, so I only give two f-ks. Excuse my language. You tell me to talk to the media and change your image, but what's being done is done – I can not change anyone's opinion. "
Burfict is looking for a big difference between the basis for his suspension and Garrett Foundation.
"The NFL had to suspend somebody for this last night, as this was not a football act," Burfict told Tafur. "My lock was a football game, I beat someone, I did not wear a helmet and shot someone at it. "
Burfict still believes he should not have been suspended.
"It was nonsense," Burfict said. "I did a football game. I could see if it was a fine or something, but no suspension, let alone the whole season. It seems like a target was on my head. I mean, I always had a goal on my head. "
Burfict is right, but his suspension was the culmination of a career filled with football matches that broke the rules of football. He still refuses to accept that.
Nonetheless, Burfict said he never received a warning that his next breach of the rules would be the one that wiped him out for the remainder of the season and essentially ended his career.  "You do not have, and it does not really matter," Burfict said. "I see other players playing the same game every day. It was a witch hunt. They have watched everything I do. You have seen 171 of my plays this year. Tell me, if you've seen 171 games of this linebacker from the Chargers, what's his name, Thomas Davis? Go on witch hunt.
And as Burfict still had hope next year, his decision to direct the insult with the witch rhymes to the man who runs the sport probably killed him.
I met Roger Goodell in New York, and he was an absolute idiot, "Burfict said. "He was a moron. He did not let anyone talk, he brought us to and from the meeting. The meeting was bullsh-t. He already had the lock in his hand. "
Burfict also believes that Derrick Brooks, who confirmed the 12-game suspension on appeal, had decided in advance because he did not care about the evidence presented by Burfict, from his clean pieces to the testimony of team-mate Derek Carr ,
"That meant a lot to me, but the NFL did not care," said Burfict, referring to Carr's role in the appeal hearing. "Derek Carr, my guy, said in his post that I was a captain and a great teammate and not a dirty player, and Derrick Brooks almost cut him off. He said we thank you for your call, but they did not need Derek Carr to vouch for me. . , , Brooks has already decided. They let me know before I woke up the next day. They did not even go to the office, make coffee and talk about it for a few minutes. "
Burfict spent more than a few minutes on Friday unloading everything and everything for Vic Tafur I will not be back next year – based on the things he said he does not seem to be want.
