There will no doubt be differing opinions on the scenario, but there is something to be respected about the star quarterback’s decision to let it go.

Kyler Murray isn’t angry at Raiders fan who hit him

According to his comments on Wednesday, Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has “no hard feelings” toward the fan who hit him in the face while he celebrated his team’s 29-23 overtime win on Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders. Murray went on to indicate, that he did not feel as though he was attacked when he mixed amongst a number of fans who were sat field side.

“No, this stuff happens fast,” Murray said. “I know every person I’ve hit in the face, I did it for a reason. I don’t know if he probably didn’t know where he was. I don’t know. It was a pretty live game. Vegas is Vegas. I’m sure he was having fun.” Interestingly, Murray also added that it was his belief that no player should be touched “in that manner.”

What happened between Kyler Murray and the Raiders fan

As one can observe in the video above, Murray can be seen celebrating with fans who are at the barrier which separates the field and the field level box. Amidst much grabbing and hugging, a hand then appears to strike Murray in the face. At that point, the Cardinals star can be seen confronting an individual while other fans try to defuse the situation. Murray is quickly ushered back to the field by his teammates and no further incident occurs. Incidentally, it is understood that Las Vegas police are investigating a battery complaint which was filed on Sunday evening.

Where Murray himself is concerned, the two-time Pro Bowler insisted that he has “No hard feelings toward the guy,” before going on to speak of reconciliation if given the opportunity. “If I seen him, I’d shake his hand, but it is what it is.” Regarding what seemingly landed him in the firing line in the first place, Murray made it clear that he won’t be shying away from field-side celebrations. “I’d do it all over again if I could,” he said.
