    Re: Around the League



    It was a mistake on his part, and for me, the reality that some (particularly the younger ones) in the generation refer to each other with that name so idiotically, does not change the reality that the term is synonymous with some deep wounds that will never completely heal amongst the race. And each race has its own terms like that.

    I don't know, Riley Cooper doesn't seem important enough for me to really get ticked at about it. Besides, he's going to have issues in his own locker room now. Not to mention the city that he plays in. That's enough punishment for me, because it'll take care of itself.

    Re: Around the League

    Ravens75... I can understand your sentiment...

    "Nigger" is just a word as much as "spic", "cracker", "wetback", et cetera. Unfortunately, those words come with loaded histories. The difference lies in the intent of conveying the message... After listening/reading Cooper's reply, it is hard to stomach his reply to the situation regardless of the context or whatsoever. It has a racial intention of offending a specific race rather than an individual, and he probably knew that word was appalling when using in such a matter.

    I don't think it should cost him his career, and I also believe that his employer should discipline him. It is really sad that anyone would speak in such manner to deliberately degrade/humiliate a person based on his/her race.

    Nonetheless, debates on race are much needed in this country. Like you, I have no intention of turning or continuing this into a racial debate in this thread.

    Yea, I would hate if anything happens to him (such as threats, bodily harms, etc.) as result of the racial slur... Philadelphia is a city you don't want to antagonize, especially if you are a marginal player at best.

    The one thing that I will say is that I don't care to use alcohol as an excuse for his comments. I find that alcohol more so gives a person the courage to say what they really want to say deep down.

    Well, he did say he'd fight every black in the place. You have to know one of his players is going to dare him to repeat that in the locker room.

    You mean the one we should have heard a year ago? That one?

    I agree. Alcohol loosens inhibitions, so it is likely that Cooper does harbor such thoughts. Those kinds of words don't just come out of your mouth in public, unless you have used them before.

    who's gonna run it?

    I heard a defensive coach on SiriusNFL yesterday. He said this year, if an opponent runs the spread or pistol they're likely to stand up their DEs and the main job is to knock the *^% out of the QB regardless of where the ball goes. Their plan to stop the pistol is to hurt the QB. Don't tell Goodell

    That's a bit of what the Ravens strategy was in the Super Bowl. Suggs job was to attack Kaepernick and force him to give up the ball. Now, coaches are going to take it to another level.

    Washington signed Nick Barnett to a one year deal. There will be some teams kicking themselves for not going after Barnett... one of them may be up 95 in the Meadowlands... G men could have used him

    Teams without quarterbacks do that kind of stuff.

    The shorter list would be which teams aren't hit by the injury bug.
