You should be banned from the board for this statement. It reeks of racism and a propensity for child abuse.
He's a fine young cannibal. He drive you crazy.
How in the hell is this racist?
his parents are black. whipping blacks = slavery.
uh....no....no it didn't
It wasn't. Major overreaction and complete failure to comprehend.
Cmon man. That quite a leap of political correctness, dont you think?
Major overreaction. Not every statement need be labeled racist, and I don't think the one you criticized was even close.
Unless of course your post was laced with sarcasm. In which case, proceed.
It would make Mike Powell proud.
Ok. Well then anytime a black defender is playing the buck position, that should be racist since black, male slaves were often called bucks. We should quit referring to a black recruit as being fast, as this could be a stereotype. If a black bball player steals a ball during a game, it should be referred to as borrowing. Because as you know, a lot of people "think" that at 13% of the population, blacks commit a large majority of crime.
In before the lock
lolz at the downvote
explaining something is not endorsing it. some dumb sons of bitches on this board. holy hell.
Never even entered my mind. What a reach. When I was a boy an got " the belt" it was called a whippen.
Couldn't agree more with this post and that's why when this incident came to light, I took that same stance in the sense that Mack needed in my opinion to come out and make a firm decision once he had all the facts presented to him regarding Cayleb's future on the team. This thing of "waiting for the legal process" to decide on how he as the coach or the University for that matter acts with respect to punishment (considering it was involving another athlete/student) is weak in my judgement. I don't care how good he is athletically. Mr. Jones has been given a special opportunity that many athletes don't get the luxury of receiving (a full scholarship to one of the best universities/programs in the county). He knows right from wrong and he chose to make a stupid decision irregardless of those consequences.
My point all along regarding how Mack handles this process is two fold. One, Mack needs to send a message to the entire team, which is your here for a reason. I shouldn't have to babysit your ass after hours or answer questions about the decisions you make. Secondly, the team as a whole needs to build a level of leadership among not only the coaches, but those older players inside that locker room. It's hard to do that when you have individual players creating drama and headache internally because of stupid off the field decisions they make. It not only sets the team back to some extent in terms of depth/player positioning, but more importantly, it creates a level of uncertainty about just how strong certain players are committed to achieving the goals set out for the entire team. Do players make mistakes? Of course, but this particular incident in my opinion is different in the sense that where there is smoke, there if often fire. This was obviously an evolving issue, where Jones got to a point where he was willing to throw it all away for what???? Just because another guy (athlete) was talking to his ex? That's the kind of stupidity you don't need to have in the locker room and my bet (based on how this evolved over time) would be that it won't be the last should he be allowed to return to the team.
Like no one else.
