'If he wears that chain in front of me, I'm going to snatch it.'
During the Broncos vs. Raiders game over the Holiday weekend, Aqib Talib ripped Michael Crabtree's gold chain right off his neck, which could've let to a major altercation but the Raiders' wide receiver decided not to react.
After the game, Talib had this to say about Crabtree and that chain he's been wearing all year.
"He's just been wearing that chain all year, man, it's just been growing on me," Talib told reporters in the Broncos locker room after the game. "I said if he wears that chain in front of me, I'm going to snatch it off. So he wore it in front of me, so I had to snatch it off."
When Crabtree was questioned about the incident, he called Talib childish and explained why he chose not to go after him after the blatant disrespect.
"I can't react, or [the referees are] going to kick me out," Crabtree said. "Then I'm the bad guy."
"Acting," Crabtree said. "You aren't defending anybody up like that."
"You hard? You tough? You snatch a chain in front of the police and run off? Childish, man."
Crabtree also voiced his displeasure with the refs, who failed to throw a flag on the play.
"Disrespectful," Crabtree said of their [the refs] treatment of him. "They were acting like I was the problem. That's what I didn't like. I'm not even that type of dude. I play football ... I could have cut [blocked] him; I could have hurt him. But I don't like that."
