In the latest news that Rivera has no control

"I wish he had done it behind closed doors but he didn't. It's out there. I'm going to support that."

No spin there. That's exactly what he said. As I know from past experience, arguing with you is a waste of time so this will be the last post directed to you in this thread. Carry on.

Interesting way to spin what was said.

There's nothing wrong with saying it but a leader doesn't come out on twitter and do it. Also it wasn't constructive (basically accusing guys of being lazy). Thus in that situation it would be up to the team leader (Rivera) to stand up and take charge of the situation since one player is essentially trashing another player or players on his team. Instead of taking charge he goes with the pussy cop out position and "supports" the comments.

This is just indicative of his overall mindset. He's a follower and not a leader. He doesn't have a basic grasp of communication and these deficiencies are magnified on the field in crunch time. The sooner this franchise rids itself of this colossal mistake the better everyone will be.

Meh. CJ was right in calling out others who aren't trying as hard. That's what an on field leader does. Twitter is not the way to do it, but I have no problem with CJ calling out what NEEDS to be called out.

How's that an issue? Captains should be there to call out lazy players. If Manning did it it'd be him being a 'leader'. He didn't say names. Rivera knows the players won't listen to him, maybe he suspects they'll listen to the team captains.

I find it amazing how much Fox has opened up since joining the Broncos...he doesn't even sound like the same guy during his pressers

...for once he changed and adapted to the situation.....

Rivera also went on to say he wishes that CJ wouldn't have done it and would hope that it doesn't happen again. He said it has happened and they will address it as a team.

He "supports" johnson's public tweet ripping his own teammates. A head coach with any balls would say "no comment" to the media and tell CJ behind closed doors he better not do that poo again or there will be consequences. Instead, Ron "will you be my friend" Rivera says its ok to act like this and even goes so far as to encourage the behavior because CJ is a "captain." I don't know many captains that are publicly throwing other squad members under the bus but in RR's fuged up cocoon this is what happens.

I almost went public relations in college and I can assure you "no comment" is usually not an adequate answer and can do more harm than good

    • Just world fallacy:  "If you're poor you MUST be lazy and deserve to live in poverty" "If you're rich it's obviously because you worked hard and are deserving" No gray areas. No societal or logistically or racial barriers which might hold you back. Status quo is good enough. "If I worked hard I have no interest in helping anyone else not because I'm a shitty person but because I feel like suffering builds character." And the same folks making these statements claim we can't think critically and have nuanced discussion. Comical. 

    • Don't even bring Cam in the conversation. He's heads above Derek Carr in accomplishments from NFL records to accolades. Cam deserves his $. There's no comparison.

    • So I guess I lived a bit of a jaded life, as someone who comes from a mixed race background(mom is Hispanic, dad was white) I've never looked or judged someone based on their race. It was just how I was raised and how I've always viewed things.  And many of my friends were the same way, no one cared and we all came from the same middle class and suburban background. So I thought racism was nothing more then a political myth. I didn't even believe racism was still real when Obama was first elected, if anything I felt that his election just furthered my belief that racism was a lie a played out card for political advantage  harkening to an old dark past of American history that I felt had died back in the 60's. An age many years before my own exsistence came to be. Because "look we have elected a black president!" How can we be a racist society if we have a minority president? And boy was I wrong. Since Obama was elected all I have seen since then was how divided we really are as a country based on race relations, now I in no way believe Obama caused any of this, I believe it was something that was already there and was just now brought back to he surface and to the political forefront since his election. But it truely didn't sink in for me till the last 4 years, with the BLM movement, and counter movements, and Trump winning election. Some things that I thought were from a bygone era have rooted and showed their head again.  So 4 years ago I realized racism was alive and well in America and I feel terrible that it took me that long to realize it.
