Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree is still unhappy about the situation that led to his fight with Denver Broncos cornerback Aqib Talib and subsequent one-game suspension. In an interview with Vic Tafur of the Athletic, Crabtree said he wanted his suspension to be completely annulled as he takes issue with the notion he instigated the fighting. “The league said it was premeditated on my part,” Crabtree said. “You know what premeditated is? When you say you’re going to do something, do it, and then laugh about it with the media after the game. Like he did last year. That’s all on him. I’m not trying to get revenge. I’m trying to get a catch in my 122nd straight game and help my team win a big game. I don’t want to get kicked out. I know what’s at stake for my team.” Crabtree was reprimanded by the league for punching cornerback Chris Harris in the chest on the play before the scrap with Talib began.
