    That article actually has it in context, but an article on the Tennessean uses that quote a bit out of context, and that's exactly what it looks like i.e. he feels he is being benched for being the wrong color. After reading this article from ESPN and knowing he's not the sharpest tool in the shed anyway, I think he just heard the word "adversity", and thought he needed to say something about being black.

    I think that's reading a bit too much into it.

    The reporter was there promptly trying to make it into a headline, but Vince "corrected" his choice of words just fine.

    Wow, he was definitely not implying any racial overtones and its sad that reporter immediately tried to make something out of nothing..........get over yourself.

    lol best use of Madden terminology I ever seen.

    Hold up there buddy, the way I read it was he was telling the reporter to get over himself. Give him a chance to explain himself...then tear him a new one. :brow:

    Did you build the boy playing on it? Otherwise I am not impressed.

    As for your original comment, I got no idea, that is just how I looked at it. I could be wrong (gasp)
