    I most certainly did not. You read about as well as a slave. Go back and take another look at what I wrote. Then come back and high-five this post.

    That (bold) is a lame card to play. His black QB sucked, so they hired someone who can throw for a TD inside the 5. He happened to be white. Has nothing to do with race, that's where those 'it sucks' probably came from. AP fumbled the ball 3 times, twice in the redzone, in the most important game of his career. That's why they opt for the pass. And that's why CJ is better, btw.

    And there's nothing 'slave like' about anything he does. He's filthy rich and he plays a sport for a living, which he chose to do. I'm not hating, I think athletes deserve the money they get... I'm just saying. There's a difference between whips and chains (and I don't mean Bentleys and Platinum) vs making $10M instead of $14M annually. Terrible remark, terrible choice of words, makes him look like a fool. Especially knowing the media heyday that would erupt.

    Yeah, you did. Would AP feel more appreciated if it was Donavan McNabb instead of Favre? That's what you insinuated.

    Is that what you got from that? I didn't mean to insinuate that. All I was doing was stating what takes place every Sunday for him.

    Well here's something to suck on. Peterson should be thanking the white man for slavery. If not for that, how is he here today running people over? He's what they call a "super slave" back in the day. He was born to carry a load. He's the descendant of exactly that. I've heard him being called the "A-Train", how about the "Under Ground Railroad" hahahaha. Rashard Mendenhall of the Steelers feels this same way.

    Maybe you could write a post equating Brett Favre to the Nazis or something. Make about as much sense as your previous post.

    What about Mcnabb playing for the Browns? Then he can say something stupid about Peyton Hillis taking all the glory after Mcnabb did all the work.

    I thought this was football where everybody played as a team and color means nothing.

    That is what you insinuated, though. The whole 'white man throwing the ball' remark was a direct insinuation that having a white QB vs a black QB was an issue. I seriously doubt that's the way AP feels, he was just trying to say that the money he generates is MUCH greater then the $10M annual he gets paid. And that I understand, it was just a word vomit that he should have thought about before he spewed. African American's are naturally more athletic then Caucasians, therfore there are plenty of black skill players with white QBs. I don't think that has presented any real issue to any of them; if it does then they're being ignorant and selfish.

    Since you are one of my favorite posters I'll ignore that ridiculous rant of a second paragraph. I understand that we may see this differently, yourself being African American and me being white, but unless you were joking (which I think you were) then that's just some outrageous stuff you said

    Hang on, is the issue here how much AP makes or the fact he thinks making that much is akin to slavery?

    I don't think anyone here is whining about how much he makes, more that they are saying he doesn't appreciate how much he makes.

    I was defiantly joking in the latter part of my post, glad you could see that. And I wasn't making it a black vs. white thing. I was just "trying" to see how on Earth A.P. could feel this way. The "white man throwing the ball' remark was just me painting a picture of a black guy working his butt off only to see a white man benefit from his hard work while he only gets carries outside the redzone.

    I'm simply throwing things out there for others to chew on in an attempt to rationalize this nutty thread.
