Lady look. In the same way that you can take a conversation by two people that you have never met and apply a motive to one persons comments because you feel that being a woman gives you special insight into instances of Sexism,
"You actually made it very clear you didn't see it as condescending at all and I felt I needed to explain to you why, in fact, it was"
Warren Moon can do the same thing about Cam, the media and racism. Its his right. You dont have to like it. He probably wouldn't like you either. And for the record I heard his entire statement not just the quoted stuff and he specifically said that he was not saying it was racist just stereotyping.
You wanna compare Cam to Vince go ahead. Plenty of people have tried to explain to others how dumb that makes you sound.
Lastly, Dont you ever question my knowledge of or ability to lead men. I have dedicated my life to military service and have served 10 accomplished years so far and have received various awards and recognition for leadership. My biggest accomplishment being that I have never lost a man in combat. You would do well to watch your accusations especially when you speak of things you know nothing about. But football is not war. It is not life. It is a game. Played by well payed professionals. Not suckling little babes in need of a tender hand. There are some people within our organization that are not cutting it. Cam may be on that list but he is as close to the bottom as someone can be with a lot of people on the chopping block ahead of him in line.
For some reason I feel like all this is leading to is you continuing to get more hostile and showing you are incapable of containing yourself to a civil discussion without throwing out labels such as stupid, lazy, racist or dumb as predetermined alternatives to your arguments. Basically anyone that doesn't agree with you is one or the other. What a novel idea!
First I just want to say you are unbelievable in twisting words and putting them back into people’s mouths. I never applied motive to Cam’s comments, and my explanation was for YOU, because you were the one that seemed ignorant to why that comes across as offensive to a woman and saw nothing wrong with it. And it's not a matter of opinion. I tried to explain it to you, that any grown woman would find that INSULTING in a professional setting when it is completely uncalled for. If I called you stupid, it's not a matter of opinion that I just insulted you.
Now It doesn't sway me that you decided to break down some quarterbacks, into a couple of choice statistical categories that matches your argument. A couple among thousands. Most casual fans who make up the majority of the NFL television fan base don't sit around and break down weight, height stats, and offensive systems like you do when they draw up their arguments. They look at a television screen, and they see a dual rush quarterback with very similar abilities, size and yes, color, who perform and play the game in a similar fashion. So I'm not going to sit here and get into a statistical category debate with you. But the simple fact that most people don't doesn't make them stupid, lazy or racist.
But just for the record, I do know my football as well, and once again I will point out you that Vince Young ran the read option in 2003 with the Long Horns. Also if you want to get technical, the Panthers offense is actually based on the Air Coryell.
In the end it doesn't really matter what offensive system they run out of. No two NFL offenses are the same anyway and it’s an ever evolving process. What everyone sees on the field, is that both quarterbacks are proficient in the same basic concept of either using designed or improvised pass/run plays to bring out the abilities which set them apart from the rest. The biggest and most noticeable difference that sets them apart from your typical pocket passer is simply their athleticism and their ability to run with the ball. It's that simple. If your argument is that people need to see the difference of an inch in height or 20 pounds of weight while wearing football gear or a tenth of a second difference when watching television is laughable.
On the other point, I don't have a problem with how Warren Moon feels about racism, but if you feel statistics are how you should compare quarterbacks, then Moon certainly matches your choice criteria of stupid, lazy or racist, because Cam Newton and his suggestion Jay Cutler don't share a whole lot of them.
So for the last time let me reiterate to you my problem isn’t with his comments, but rather with posters, who have a hell bent intent of always trying to boil down the discussions race and use racial accusations to silence or discourage and invalidate criticism they don’t want to deal with.
As far as your football acumen, I have no doubt it is sound, but I have pointed out inaccuracies over and over in your comments, and you have a tendency to make up your own convenient points to respond to.. For example, I never once quoted
Stephen A Smith or used him as a source of credibility. But making that statement does weaken yours. I only used him to point out irony or hypocrisy when it comes to allegations of race in the media. He is the one of the most popular media heads that made the Vince Young comparison, and there happened to be an argument there that you completely ignored. You were the one that wanted to talk about racism in the media were you not?
As far as your leadership experience, I'm not questioning your knowledge based on your experience. I know nothing of it. However I know leadership as well, and I have held positions of leadership in society. Your leadership isn't in question here. Your suggestion is. You made a stupid suggestion in a response to me, and since that is all I have to go on, I'm questioning your knowledge based on your statement and Cam Newton's current situation because when you consider that, as you like to say, it's just plain stupid. And to see that it requires less experience and more common sense. So if that’s your solution, I will question it all I want until you have something better to offer than your military experience to back it up.
In the military, maybe your subordinates listened to your shout out orders, because they simply have no choice but to follow the chain of command. And congratulations on your war efforts and not costing men lives but it has nothing to do with our argument, and it still doesn’t back up or add any sort of weight to that HORRID suggestion. Nor does it excuse it! This is about leading in the NFL.
In the civil world, as well as football, leadership isn't attained by shouting. It is especially a counter productive suggestion for 23 year old spoiled brats who haven't done anything worth of gaining their respect. In fact, quite the opposite. Nobody on the Panthers squad would listen to Cam Newton's shouts. It comes from being assertive and leading by example or by achievement. Cam Newton has done neither. It's got to be earned. In this case, it doesn't come with the rank. And as we have noticed it more than once, it's the other Panthers pulling him by his ears, like a little boy, and telling him to get his act together. As long as this is taking place, he will never earn the right to shout at anyone for anything and doing that is not going to turn him into a leader or gain their respect.
Pretty lame. Personally, I don’t feel like continuing down this path because it feels like you are just interested in slinging mud at each other…or perhaps you just wanted to impress me with your resume.
