Giants head coach Joe Judge said on Monday that the Giants will not discipline wide receiver Golden Tate for Sunday’s postgame fight with Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey, because he was told by other players that Ramsey threw the first punch.
The two players have a history of bad blood stemming from Ramsey leaving his relationship with Tate’s sister while she was pregnant to pursue a relationship with a Las Vegas dancer.
Rams head coach Sean McVay said on Monday that he’s spoken to Ramsey since the fight and said that he can’t allow circumstances that lead to “something bad happening for you or for our football team.”
“I didn’t get into the, ‘He said, she said,’” McVay said, via Gary Klein of 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.’”
Tate addressed the situation publicly and suggested something might happen if the two squared off on the same field.
“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,” the Giants wide receiver said.
