We’ve almost reached the division matchup between the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys, but the last game isn’t in the past yet. There’s certain things that have stuck around in the memory of fans and press. The lack of offense for the Giants was one of them, but another one is the fight between Golden Tate and Jalen Ramsey after the game. As of now, the league hasn’t issued a statement about the incident and both players are acting quiet about it to the media.

But it was impossible for Ramsey to avoid hearing about it as he had his first media availability since the original incident this Friday. During that conference call, he was predictably questioned on it.

“We’re gonna talk about football, man. Everybody has kind of answered it already and I keep telling y’all ‘no comment,’ so I’m not gonna get into nothing. We talk about football. We got the Washington Football Team this week and that’s what’s important, honestly,” Ramsey told reporters.

The conflict between the two players originally began because of Ramsey’s relationship with Golden Tate’s sister. Tate’s sister is the mother of Ramsey’s children, but the breakup between the two caused tension when Ramsey and Tate met on the field. Obviously, the tension boiled over before either player could leave the field.

Golden Tate gives his take

Tate himself had a similar stance to Ramsey on the matter.

“I don’t want to backpedal and discuss that because I don’t think, you know, going back to that is going to help us this week,” Tate had said on Thursday.

The situation could be of interest to Giants fans because it remains to be seen if the league is going to hand down a punishment. But considering how close it is to the next game and how no decision has been issued, that looks less and less likely. Neither team has chosen to take action and it seems like if the league were going to do something, it would have been done by now.

The game against the Cowboys will have bigger worries for the Giants than family drama – namely, avoiding an 0-5 start. And from what we’ve seen so far, we can expect Tate to be back on the field and back to himself for that matchup.
