You're close to getting banned for excessive whining.

Says the guy whining in the final warning thread just a couple days ago about getting in trouble for picking on KT lol.

Take a joke, it will do wonders on your heart.

Stephen A: "I'm uncomfortable with where we just went"

He's uncomfortable because he didn't get to bring it up first.

ESPN is awful and Stephen A is proof of that. Every time I turn on FirstTake, they are discussing race/ethnicity. Why? Because it creates massive ratings.

I wasn't whining, just pointing out that he isn't held to the same standards as everyone else.

My heart is one of the things that still works just fine.

Stephen A Smith is a pure and simple racist. I've seen him make it a point to trash white players (The Golden Calf of Bristol and others), and defend black players even when they are in the wrong on or off the field, and so on..

Everytime I have ever watched him, it all boils down to his racist attitude, over the game itself.

It is more than being proud of who you are when you make it a point to criticize players, or stick up for players based on their color. Any white journalist that would say the things he says, even once, would be called a racist and fired from ESPN.

He goes far beyond biased journalism... it is pathetic the racist comments that come out of his mouth on a daily basis. Of course, anyone saying a black is racist today is called racist themselves.

Rob was just showing his true colors.. I guess he wasn't able to hide his hate of RBGIII because he wasn't 'black enough'. LOL, unreal how funny that is.. I mean sad that is.

This thread is proof of why they do it, it generates a lot of buzz. People won't boycott it because they love this crap AND the other options for sports coverage on TV generally suck.

Like I've said a million times now bro these media guys like Stephen A, Skip Bayless, Prisco, King, Florio are all professional trolls. Like Jedi Trolls. They are trolls on the highest level. They know their audience. As long as people are watching and listening it creates buzz and ratings.

Look at Rush Limbaugh. This guy is a pure genius. I rarely agree with anything he says but he is filthy rich from being a troll. A lot of his ratings come from people who hate him and want to hear what he says next. He also has the balls to say what many of the backwards, zealot conservatives are scared to say.

lol Stephen A Smith is a lot of things but he is not racist,he and Skip Bayless are like brothers.He bashes The Golden Calf of Bristol because The Golden Calf of Bristol actually sucks as a qb.He supports the white athletes he is a big Aaron Rodgers/Eli Manning fan,he said numerous times that he thinks Andrew Luck will be a better qb than RG3,while Skip is a fan of RG3.

Stephen A is a troll and he says stupid things but he is not racist.

I'm black and I understand what Rob was trying to say but he went to far when he basically called him an Uncle Tom. In these interviews RG3 does seem to alway want to disassociate himself with whom he is ..a running quarterback that happens to be black. He didn't want to be compared to Cam, he doesn't want to be known as a running qb but every chance he gets that exactly what hes doing, and he is always bringing up the race card. I don't agree with Rob using his soon to be wife ethnicity or his political stance as his evidence that hes not black enough but I could see what he saying. It not like what Cam said last year about not wanting to be Jamarcus Russell or Vince Young because that had to do more work ethnic.

There is a reason why RG3 is doing that. Probably because of the stereotypes, that has been associated with black quarterbacks over the past decade. Now here's the part a lot of black dudes don't want to face. Some of those are freaking true. Athletic, can run, can throw, but really have been lacking in the passing, efficiency and Football IQ department. Turned over the ball a lot. Or had some character issues off the field.

RG3 is a very accurate, cerebral, efficient passing quarterback who is a student of the game, with an ideal character and personality for an NFL QB.

There really hasn't been any black QB's like him coming out of college over the past decade, and yes that includes Cam. He should aspire to be like Aaron Rodgers, Brady etc, because he's that good of a passer. Freaking 104 NFL passer rating as a rookie, currently tied with Brady at #1 in the NFL. And honestly his touch and accuracy is similar to that of guys like Luck, Rodgers, etc. Same for guys like Colin.

I see no reason why black commentators have an issue with it other than the fact they have vehemently tried to accuse a lot of such criticisms of past black QB's as a result of racism, because they didn't want to accept some were missing the qualities that RG3 and other white quarterbacks display. Not all of it was freaking racism.

RG3 is not getting any of those types of criticism, because he has a complete game. And while Rob might think it's because of "all the work" accomplished by those that came before him or whatever his cause is...I beg to differ....it's because he has shown he is the complete package from a passing department.

Rob's always been a moron. He never seems to understand what it really takes to be an accurate and elite QB in the NFL. Rarely gets his facts right. He doesn't like Tiger Woods because he's not "black enough", yet is too ignorant to be sensitive to the fact he is, in fact mixed, and mixed race people probably want to be embraced and accepted as such: mixed. Not black. Not white. But as they are. He pretty much came out and said his background doesn't matter, he just looked at the color of his skin. So now he's a bigot to boot.

RG3 is a cerebral qb and cam is not? What exactly are you basing that on? RG3 has infact rushed for more yards in his rookie season than cam did in his. Cam is a pocket passer himself first, and run option qb second just like rg3. I don't get why you are trying to say that RG3 is so above cam that he should only compare himself to rodgers or brady.
