Cheap Shot Artist Dante Wesley Blames Peanut

October 20th, 2009

Of course Joe knew that cheap shot artist Dante Wesley would somehow blame someone else for his assault Sunday on Bucs return specialist Clifton Smith.

But Joe never guessed this Wesley would have the unmitigated gall to suggest the hit was Smith’s fault.

That is exactly what dirty back-up defensive back Wesley is claiming, reports David Scott of the Charlotte Observer.

“He never fair-(caught) the ball, so I was just trying to play,” said Wesley. “It’s not like I tried to deliberately hurt anybody. That’s not even me. It just so happened that I hit him.”

Wesley even had the nerve to suggest a number of Bucs players should have been suspended by NFL warden commissioner Roger Goodell. Monday, Wesley was suspended for a game.

“How could I be the only one being ejected (just) because I tried to make a play?” he said. “They came toward me. I didn’t go in their face and try to say something aggressive toward them. When the other team came toward me like that, I felt like the ref could’ve looked at the situation a lot differently.”

Can you imagine? This is like sticking up a liquor store and popping the clerk and then blaming the poor guy for the cops barging in.

    I’m guessing the Bucs at Panthers game will be fiesty. “Anything less, would be uncivilized.”

    unbelievable! fair catch has nothing to do with it you cannot destroy the returner until he has the ball… I was suprised that none of our guys got suspended but looking at the tape we didn’t throw any punches… wesley probably plays out the game had he not thrown a punch at aqib…

    To Panty (errr Dante) Wesley
    We play again this year. Better have your head on a swivel. I for one am hoping someone knocks the snot out of you.

    Now some questions are answered about his despicable acts….. HE IS A TRUE MORON!!!

    Making a play and tackling Smith (when he was defenseless) NEVER calls for launching yourself into the air and going for his head and upper body. Wesley is just a DIRTY player trying to blow off the seriuosness of his actions. Not only would I have suspended him at least 4 games and a huge fine but I would have added several hours of Psychiatic evaluation.
