Giants coach Tom Coughlin on Odell Beckham Jr. suspension: 'It's not justice'

December 23, 2015

Tom Coughlin is not happy about the Odell Beckham Jr. suspension.

On Wednesday, the New York Giants coach expressed his outrage over the fact that Beckham is suspended and Panthers cornerback Josh Norman was only fined.

"It's not fair. It's not justice. It's not the way it was," Coughlin said. "If you're naive enough to think that way they better do some soul searching."

Here's the full clip:

"Beckham certainly was wrong, and we said he was wrong from day one," Coughlin continued. "But there were factors involved starting in pregame, which are well documented, which indicated that there was an attempt to provoke him.

"He was provoked. He was out of control. He was wrong."

Beckham's appeal was denied on Wednesday, so the Giants (6-8) will be without their best player on Sunday when they visit the Vikings trying to desperately cling to fleeting playoff hopes.

Coughlin, however, wasn't talking playoffs on Thursday.

"If you know the situation with the baseball (bat) pregame and you know what occurred at the very beginning of the game, you know that there were two sides to this, and not just one," he said.
