I grow less and less fond of Mike Mitchell.

If you're going to jump out and start a thread making these kinds of statements about a guy, and be as categorically wrong as the OP was, then you're going to have to answer for it when the player proves your characterizations invalid. If you guys want to let him out the back door based on a few qualifiers then you're more than welcome, but that doesn't change the fact that he came pretty strong at a player and was incorrect in his assessment.

 

What it ultimately boils down to is two types of people. Those who are willing to wait and gather information, formulate opinions on what they know, and keep an open mind, and those who get themselves emotionally involved in causes they try to rah rah around.

 

In this case you were the latter, and it backfired because you tried to attack one of the former. I'd just admit you were wrong, bro. Quit being so prideful.

People bringing up race. LOCK IT UP BEFORE IT GETS OUT OF HAND.

I'm sure glad Mr. Scot was there to set the record straight (repeatedly) by telling us there were unequivocally no racists on the huddle.

 

 

Never said there weren't racists. Just said that not everyone who was against drafting Newton was doing so for racist reasons.

You still trying to prove that any and all criticism of Newton equals racism?

 

 

Absolutely not, I've never said anything of the sort. However, I will not simply bury my head in the sand about this either.

knock it off. both of you. i don't care who starts it.... don't keep it going. understood?

as soon as it was bumped i wasn't a fan. i was just waiting for someone to remind vagrant that he did the same thing he was accusing others of...only he was much more ignorant when he did it himself.

 

probably should have locked it right away, tho.

 

oh well....

It's cool if you want to troll me, I get that it's easier that way. It makes it especially ironic that you'd consider ME the one that jumped to any kind of conclusion about anything in this thread considering I didn't even feel moved to comment the first time around. It's just that if you're going to be loud, at least be right. If you're loud and wrong, that's a bad combination. Perhaps when the poor attitude, loose cannon, career backup gets himself in the Pro Bowl discussion towards the end of the season you might be able to come to terms with the fact that you misjudged him if you're even capable of that level of introspective thought. There again, it's not really about what you think. I like to believe this is more of an exercise in teaching people in general that spouting off in ignorance about a player is generally frowned upon and something you will answer for in the event that your malformed opinions are proven unequivocally off the page.

pretty much a lesson you needed to learn and that you were guilty of yourself.

Lol "spouting off in ignorance."

 

We have already had multiple people comment that they don't feel genuine discussion based on actual, tangible, documented information is anything to critique.

 

Of course we have had people suggest that not liking a QB because "black quarterbacks never do well" is indeed the epitome of what it means to be ignorant.

 

oh wait I'm talking about you! what a coincidence!

I have developed a lot personally since that post was made and consider it even by my former standards to be out of character, but even more so now. The difference is my willingness to not defend that ignorance and to own it as such. The end of personal growth and the accumulation of knowledge is the point when you defend your actions vehemently even in the face of overwhelming logic to the contrary. We're getting a crash course in that behavior right here.
