Mr. Scot

Rivera talks minority hiring and Cam Newton (Florio criticizes)

115 posts in this topic

and fewell would be a terrible hire but that's irrelevant because in florios eyes its not someone's right to hire the best candidate for the job it's their duty to make sure everybody feels included

Cam isn't hated because of his race, I'm fairly certain. Cam is hated because so many people are jealous. The guy is a top high school QB, gets recruited to Florida during the Urban Meyers years, years a National Championship at Auburn in only one year there, gets drafted #1 overall, breaks all sorts of rookie records, breaks all sorts of two year records, huge sponsorship deals, etc.

The game, and everything with it, come so easy to Cam that it grates on peoples' nerves. His smile is so electric, people hate it. He goes back to school, people hate it. Cam is the one guy everyone wants to hate. It's not because of his race, it's because he just damn better than everyone.

While I do partly agree with that but I can't seem to name a white QB off my head that I think is hated just because. Players are normally hated for bad behaviors. I don't think cam has enough resume in the league that warrant hatred. The dude just completed his second season and was hated throughout. And don't give that 'once he makes the playoffs' excuse. Every year there are at least 18 white QBs that do not make the playoffs and I don't think the media is waiting for the moment to love them. Although your comment was well intended but you can't just oversimplify it. Too many excuses.

I think the majority white public find reasons to hate and chastise black players. They find every nonessential crap that happened 15 years ago when the player was 5 to hate on. One thing I do agree completely with you is jealousy is in the center of it all. Complete racial jealousy. Some of those black athletes, like Cam, are complete human freaks. Almost superhero-like. Thus people do try find reason to humanize them.

Look at Wilson, Kaepernick and RGIII. All not-white and loved by the media. Once Cam is in the playoffs, the media will love him too.

I don't think those guys are loved. The media just haven't found justifiable reasons to chastise them. The media also understands that if they attempt to chastise those guys it will raise eyebrow by the black community. Pretty much, the media try to only pick on one black guy at a time. When it comes to Cam they wanna be able to say "well RG3 is black, we're not picking on him so we're not racist. We only hate Cam because he put a towel over his head". I'm surprise the public hasn't petition the government for the death penalty for those who put towels on their head when their team is losing.

brian billick comes to mind when labeling "black quarterbacks" although he didnt use that phrase. He said something like, "who looks like Cam and has won a superbowl" or something of that nature. Not sure if he meant the color of his skin or the fact he is a 6'6" 250 lb monster.

That lips-less prick meant his skin color. It's the same as the statement "how many running QB ever won a superbowl?". White racists just use description instead of the actual term black. Here is another example, what do you think they mean when they say "team A needs more speed in the backfield" or "Notre Dame needs to recruit more speed to be able to compete with SEC teams"? In a more honest and less racist society they could have just say black players. Sorry to say, but white people have difficulty communicating or getting along with other races. Which is kind of sad.

    • And to think this guy made it through 7 rounds and not one team wanted him.  Thank God Gettleman was on his "A" game and signed him here. Amazing how talent can bypass so many scouts, coaches and GMs. If they did a redraft.   What round would he go to?  Round 1?  He's a solid of a Guard as any in this league.
    • you do realize that $1M pledge he made was after he had received a ton of backlash and outcry from the media for sitting during the national anthem? He did hold his promise and has made some other donations as well, but before he decided to sit at football games, he didn't do jack poo for oppressed communities and the homeless, or any other charities for that matter. He was just a narcissist prima dona who so happened to play for one of the most talented teams in the NFL headed by one of the greatest coaches in the NFL. Him prospering early on in his career made him a cocky SOB who dressed like a thug during press conferences and treated the media like dog poo.  Yes people change, but he changed for the wrong reasons. His career was in turmoil, he was a declining NFL QB trying to stay relevant, so he thought up a rouge to get back in the spotlight by sitting. After he received backlash, he thought to himself "oh crap, I need to back up my words with some action. let me make a few donations to show the world I truly care about what I stand for"  the dude could give a rats ass about any of that poo. He didn't even show up to vote, and I don't think he's ever voted in his life. And I don't care about voting for the president, but at least vote for your local officials and congressman and for your states propositions. If he truly wants to have a voice and use the stage he has to inflict some serious changes in this country, there's a way to go about it, not seek attention for the wrong reasons just to resurrect your career.  
    • I love Moton. The only thing that freaks me out about him is that he played for a small school. I do think he could've flourished for a big time program though.
