“I’m going to see how the appeal goes because they definitely got me in there for saying something I definitely didn’t say,” Porter said. “It’s definitely because of who I am, because how do you get fined $10,000 for getting into a fight before a game and getting kicked out and you get fined $15,000 for saying something and I didn’t even say it?
“It’s definitely one of those who I am and why they said it — the most-feared stuff from the cover, and they think I’m trying to live up to that rep; that’s not the situation.”
“People use those words on a football field as part of their everyday habitat. But, for them to try to attempt to fine me for that, it’s definitely just because of who I am, they definitely are trying to get after 55: ‘Let’s get him, zero tolerance for him.’ ”
“I know right now it’s my word against the ref’s word, but I think I have some guys on the team who are standup guys who will go out there and let them know that I didn’t say it, and whoever said it will stand up and say they said it because I definitely didn’t say it.”
Joey? You are one eloquent piece of man meat. Definitely.
