Sean McVay reveals what he told Jalen Ramsey after Golden Tate fight
Ramsey reportedly threw the first punch in the midfield brawl moments after the Rams 17-9 victory. McVay said he didn’t feel the need to discipline nor have a detailed heart-t0-heart about the incident.
“I didn’t get into the, ‘He said, she said,’” McVay explained, via the Los Angeles Times. “It was really more along the lines of ‘Let’s be smart. Let’s make sure we don’t let this take away from what we just were able to accomplish as a team.’”
Giants head coach Joe Judge said he would not discipline Tate for defending himself against Ramsey.
Tate and Ramsey have publicly feuded over a personal matter involving Jalen Ramsey’s relationship with Tate’s sister. Ramsey has two children with Tate’s sister, but ended their relationship in favor of another woman while she was pregnant with the couple’s second child. Consequently, the Giants wideout doesn’t hold Ramsey in the highest regard.
“I’m not happy at all with the disrespect that he’s shown towards my sister, and the things he’s done in the past, but I don’t really want to go too much into it,” Tate told the New York Post in 2019.
Ramsey and Tate both seemed to get a few punches off in the skirmish, and several players from both teams got involved before coaches and teammates could intervene. Initially, both head coaches deflected questions about the fight, claiming they hadn’t seen precisely what happened.
Both players could be fined and possibly suspended by the NFL.
