I liked how they were complaining about the Auburn coach hire as being racist and how Donavon McNabb not getting respect has a racial element

Then, he was asked which two teams will be in the Super Bowl and he said Carolina vs. Tennessee with Carolina winning it all. THEN, Warren Sapp said something to the effect of Tennessee vs. Carolina, battle of the HILLBILLY BOWL!!! And he, along with Charles Barkley and Marshall Faulk are all just chuckling away at the comment. Nice...


Because all HILLBILLIES are white? :conf:

I don't think that's a race-based comment at all, but I'm not entirely conversant on the etymology of the word "Hillbilly"

Charlotte is the most un-hillbilly town in the south IMO, so it dosen't bother me.

i'll keep quiet.

It's fun playing the race card because you can use it for you and against others...
