Recently in sports news, there has been a big ordeal making a lot of noise. BOUNTY HUNTING across the NFL, has come to the forefront causing all types of dismay.  For those of you who miss episodes of Sportscenter, and have been living under a rock for the past few days, this topic hit the presses over the weekend.  The NFL team the New Orleans Saints were exposed for bounty hunting over a span of years, while defensive coordinator Gregg Williams was there.  Bounty hunting is pretty much when players are payed for devastating hits.  There lies the problem, making the sport even more dangerous and deadly in nature.  As I look into more about bounty hunting, I find that many players felt it has always been around, and not a big issue.  I as a fan can’t respect this at all, I don’t want to see big name players injured so somebody can get a quick bonus.  … keep reading!

The NFL has teams located in 32 cities across the country, many of the teams have a wide variety races who play on a daily basis. Unfortunately that  does not hold true for the coaching staff, and even the next level of general managers.

So after watching Donovan McNabb lose his spot twice for essentially no reason, David Garrard lose his spot for essentially no reason, and Jason Campbell essentially losing his spot before our eyes, I have come to the conclusion that it’s impossible to be successful in the NFL as a black quarterback. It seems as if the most basic of white quarterbacks keep their spots forever (Carson Palmer, Matt Hasselback, etc…), but the minute a black QB flips up, he’s outta there faster than a fat chick playing dodgeball. Come on people, you cannot tell me McNabb isnt better than Rex Grossman and John Beck. REX GROSSMAN though?!!! This is the same Rex Grossman that has more INTS than TDS for his career. As my man Cris Carter says on NFL PRIMETIME, #COMEONMAN!! We watched Brett Favre get chance, after chance when he clearly ended the Packers, Jets and Vikings seasons throwing picks. We are watching Palmer play with the Raiders when he has a career losing record and yet Garrard sits at home when he is clearly better than the Chiefs, Bears or Texans current QBs. All im sayin is this slap in the face that the NFL is clearly giving to black QBs has to stop…
