RGIII: "Media trying to Character Assassinate Me"

Recommended Posts

Excerpts from a few draft profiles.  See if you can tell who they are...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Only hint I'll give is that they were all considered among the ten best Qb prospects available the year they were drafted.

Lol. Mr Scot still doesn't get it on this.

Just because someone says something about player x and something about player y doesn't mean anything when it comes to racial stereotyping.

It is the ole backstop to try to ignore racial stereotypes by saying "he said something about that guy too!!"

Timmy Chang---forgot all about him.

I went into the obscure Univ if HawIi archives to pull that one.

People say "These sorts of things only get talked about with black quarterbacks, therefore it's racial".

 

Examples are shown of the same criticisms being made of white quarterbacks.

 

"Even if it gets said about white quarterbacks too, it's still racial when it's said about black quarterbacks."

 

Yeah...okay :rolleyes:

Choosing to ignore the use of stereotypes does not mean they don't exist.

And assuming they're at the root of every single criticism that gets made is foolish, stupid and accomplishes nothing.

 

You've got people here who go screaming "racism" every time something bad gets said about a black quarterback regardless of whether there's any actual reason to believe there's a racial aspect to it.  It gets pretty ridiculous.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think that anyone here said they are at the root of every single criticism.

 

There will certainly be people who look for that sort of thing no matter what. But simply lumping that small group of individuals in with everyone else as nothing more than a "race baiter" or whatever label, is irresponsible, and does nothing to correct the issues at hand.

There's a difference in what was said and your interpretation.  The statement wasn't that he's being criticized due to his race, it's whether the race of someone determines the intensity and type of criticism.  This is a valid point, especially on this board and having to deal with all of the issues with Cam and the media.

 

I can point to numerous differences in treatment of players in like positions.  Some here are digging way too deep for excuses, it's okay, it happens everyday in all types of situations, but it doesn't mean that it isn't worth discussing. 

 

I'll put two extremes like this, if The Golden Calf of Bristol was black would he have ever been drafted in the first round/given as many chances as he was given?  Would he have been as popular in terms of the amount of support he undeservedly received?  NO

 

If Cam was white would he have suffered so much criticism?  Would he still be so controversial, would he have been accepted and supported sooner?  NO, he would be loved and forgiven, even more than the current media darling who did much worse than Cam in college, "Johnny Football"

 

And before you begin to lay out all of the reasons why these guys were treated the way they were treated, to the level they were treated as such, please use examples of players who actually fit the criteria and were treated as such... don't worry I'll wait.  That's the point, and it is valid.

Yep. You still don't get it.

Yeah, you're right.  Every single criticism made of black quarterbacks is somehow, someway, no matter who said it or what the circumstance, somehow based in racism.

 

Happy now? :rolleyes:

T-bow was drafted in the first round largely because Josh McDaniels thought he was way smarter than he actually was.  Nobody else was gonna touch him in round one, and McDaniels got plenty of scorn for it.

 

As to Manziel, there's loads of dislike for him in media circles and you don't have to look that hard to find it.  There's also plenty of dislike for him on this board (a fair share of it from me).

And if you really think white QBs are always "loved and forgiven" for their misdeeds, you might wanna google Ryan Leaf.  or for that matter, just go back to the draft profiles I posted and tell me who they are.
