It isn't just the Jail Blazers, cont'd

Here are some more athletes who just don't get it.

"I don't know if he was fighting dogs or not," Portis said. "But it's his property; it's his dogs. If that's what he wants to do, do it."

"In the recent interview I gave concerning dog fighting, I want to make it clear I do not... condone dog fighting in any manner."

It's amazing how media can take some innocent comments and twist them into an article about how he condones dog fighting. Good thing he released a public statement to set us all straight.

To offer a different point of view...spend some time in the South, the culture is, at times, much different from what you would expect. Shocking as those statements may be, our point of view can be just as shocking to others not from here either. I have been to Mississippi, and while sometimes disconcerting, I have a better appreciation for the reality from which people originate. As to the question of whether we should expect everyone to integrate nicely with each other at some point in their life... I have no answer.


I have lived in Mississippi (not just been there) and while it is different than Portland, so is Hermiston. Your comment made no sense. (Uh, I had a layover once in Chicago, let me tell you about the midwestern personality). And why the southern tie in. Is it because all these guys are black? I certainly would not compare Virginia and Mississippi as sister southern states.

Your articulate statement says nothing.

And then, there are the Bengals. *shakes head*

As far as supporting Vick you can't tell Atlanta mgmt didn't have a clue about his behavior after the fake water bottle.

Up until a couple of months ago, Vick was still their man and they went and traded Matt Schaub to the Texans like idiots. Oops, sorry, they wanted to give Joey a chance, I forgot.
