Lol, the guy gets PAID to troll. When people get butt hurt, call the radio shows, comment on articles, and link the articles to message boards, it HELPS the writer secure his job.

I hate to say it...but this is what happens when you say you want to be an entertainer and you do everything possible to draw attention to yourself.

I'm not saying that people SHOULD be as hard as they are on Cam but it's an unavoidable consequence of him being in the limelight and flipping his s*** in an NFL game.

The truly bullshit aspect of this though is that nobody is even talking about how Tommy Kelly came out and said they were intentionally trying to injure Cam. THAT is being completely brushed over. You better believe that the entire Raiders organization would be under fire if that was said after the Oakland/Denver game.


This is the NUMERO UNO reason that Ron Rivera needs to be fired though. Cam is the best player on the team, but he's still 23 years old and needs to be controlled (for lack of a better term). Chip Kelly or Nick Saban or take you pick of guys who could come in and demand respect from him. Chico isn't one of those guys...

Oh look, it's our daily "media h8 cam" thread.

This should qualify as shitposting now. Just make one giant thread where you all can post this poo and be done with it.


At least it's a legitimate media article.

I'll grant you that the hypothetical "what would the media think if Cam said/did/acted like this" threads are stupid and pointless. This, however, is an actual statement of someone's opinion. I see no issue with discussing that.

Nah, legit articles from media are written by journalist.

This is poo. Anyone can write poo and you don't have to be qualified.

Legit in the sense that he's actually employed to write about this stuff and he wrote something, so it's not some goofball "what if" scenario

Schein is more columnist than journalist, but either way, he's not one I give much credence.

Thats because they don't give fug how much they help to distroy their QB's image with lies, and slander as long as he helps a team win.

Sunday's incident would have been a non-issue if it had happened to Luck. If anything the media would have said that Luck was in the right. This is why I have so little respect for what is being past as sports jouralism these days. The double-minded, extreme double standard, we're going to get him at any cost, attitude projected at some players in the NFL is so telling.
