Shaun King on Yahoo! picks Panthers over Saints

25 posts in this topic

One thing you have to understand is Sean is as much a Cam Newton homer as Heath Evans is a Saints homer. Sean had Cam for MVP before the season started and has picked us to make the playoffs the past 2, maybe 3 seasons. He picked Cam for Rookie of the Year before any games were played. Sean absolutely loves Cam. I think he feels a connection to him being a black QB in the NFC South.

 

edit: And he may damn well be right....but there is definitely a bias there.

Difference in someone picking a team to win (King) and one saying another will put up 40+ pts (4 times what the opponent allows).

 

One sounds like he is making a thoughtful prediction.....and the other sounds like a bufoon.

If we wack them a couple of times this year it would be nice if they didn't make the playoffs.

Hatter has been on point lately, very impressed.  Winning could be changing the culture of the Huddle.

I was watching NFL show on Showtime tonight and they were showing Taints fans in Seattle. Talk about bandwagon.

Speaking of bandwagoners, how about that MNF pre game show when they were asking a bunch of Seahawks "fans" who their kicker, long snapper, etc. were and nobody knew...cut to 3 year old girl putting them all to shame lol.

There doesn't have to be a bias there. He wasn't saying these things about Josh Freeman, unless I'm mistaken. 

 

I think he just loves, believes in Cam. 

 

Not saying you're right or wrong (on King's experiences or predictions). But you could be projecting (Unless you're saying, 'he can clearly see Cam's attributes compared to other compromised analyst who normally can't cause he doesn't carry unnecessary, unfounded stigmas/baggage towards Cam')?  See I gave you a [friendly] out. Lol

You're using lots of big words in close proximity. The bottom line is Shaun roots for Cam. I think it's because he has a lot in common with Cam. They both dealt with the same bias in their careers. I don't see it as a bad thing. Ryan Kalil is a fat white guy that likes video games and comic books, I feel a connection to him. That doesn't mean I hate people that aren't fat white dorks.

 

I may be completely wrong, but no one should be up in arms over it. Race is all around us, we can discuss it frankly without crossing a line.

I will say about the only thing I remember about Shaun King was how quick he was to completely forgive Michael Vick because Vick "found God" and was a new man.  And that was like months after the whole dog slaughtering went down.  For whatever that is worth.
