White privelege exists at NFL QB. Banning KT or acting like hes the only one who sees it is laughable. Stop giving guys passes and maybe you wont hear about it more. Cam will never be able to yell at lineman or throw teammates under the bus like Peyton or Brady.


So you are saying that only at the qb position a black man cannot exhibit the leadership skills to be successful because of some white privileged edict?. I know at defense guys like Ray Lewis are great leaders .In a country where we have crossed racial boundaries as high as the President of the US,,,,,where we have black GMs and black coaches we still have some kind of "White privilege" that exists somewhere in the NFL and does not allow for a black qb to yell at linemen like Brady can.

I did not know this If this is truly the case then why do owners draft and trade for black qbs knowing this white privilege exists or could it be you are a complete moron?

Its not a race thing.

Brady gets away with it because of the rings on his finger. Not because the color of his skin.

Young QB's are under the microscope. Ryan Leaf and Derek Anderson were both blasted by the media for their behavior, warranted or not.

How a new QB deals with the league is a story the media likes to follow. They like it even more if they can put a negative spin on it and get more article views.


Pretty much. Win a Super Bowl and you can have baby seal for lunch every day. The media will suggest you write a diet book.

Until you prove yourself a consistent winner, you're going to face scrutiny. What a lot of our fan base fails to understand is that setting rookie records doesn't amount to proving it. Last year's rookies - even the record setting ones - are old news. This year there are new rookies to talk about.

Continuing to look back at last year as if it means something is about like Al Bundy continually bragging about the four touchdowns he scored in high school. Unless there's something more built on that foundation, then that phenomenal season will become a footnote. People will look back and say "Well, that was nice. Shame he never did anything else. He looked so promising."

That's just reality.

Cam needs to focus on his job and being a better team member.

i think he has been working on that and avoiding the media when he can. that's part of the reason the media doesn't like him, he's not kissing their asses/making himself accessible.

he's been all about work and trying to improve.

Probably so, just not in this discussion. The media is not out and after cam because of his skin color. Any reasonable person can see that.

Cam has as many rings as Matt Ryan. And if Cam screamed "Get the fug off my field" at an opponent, you're just being a silly goose if you deny how the media would react to that.

No, they're not 'out to get' Cam because he's black. Racism in our society isn't always as simple as "Oh, a black, grr, I'm going to treat you bad." But they treat him differently, whether intentional or not. In some ways he may have even been shielded from criticism because he's black. And in a lot of ways, he's been treated worse because of it.

If he had playoff experience and was currently undefeated they wouldn't mention it I don't think.

I truly think they would mention it. And mention it hard. I guess we'll see when Cam gets there.

They would react to it like they reacted to Ryan saying it.

The only thing notable about that is that it was captured on camera.

They really hate him because he's black and doesn't try to act like some house ******


Post #5, where race was brought up.

I'll accept your apology. I can't force KT to accept it though. I wouldn't if I were him.
