    Sucks to lose a relatively White friendly coach in any sport. Hope this doesn't impact the development of Gordon Hayward. I think the new coach is a brotha so probably not good for Gordon.

    This is sad news. I knew from his first year in SLC that Williams would be trouble down the line, one way or the other. Sorry to see Jerry Sloan go.

    This was clearly a "racial" situation with Coach Sloan "losing the lockerroom" as the Jazz became a more and more black team. Williams obviously played the black card and Sloan was not backed up by management and he said screw everybody. I would love to see the Utah fans turn on Williams at this point....but even the Mormons are probably so brainwashed that they will side with the petulant affrolete.....too sad.

    I'm not sure that it is racism why Williams and Sloan clashed. It's probably work ethic. If you look at Williams he is fat for a point guard. His off season conditioning or eating habits aren't professional. Sloan is old school and doesn't like loafers. One thing about Stockton and Malone they played hard all day and every game. From what have seen from Mulatto's raised by the White side of their family they seem to respect Whites. Unlike Mulatto's that are multi-generational who consider themselves Black and can carry emotional baggage because of their obvious White ancestry. Edited by: white is right

    One thing about Sloan is he coached the way he played. He was hard nosed gritty/borderline dirty defender for the Chicago Bulls in the 60's through early 70's. Picture a White Michael Cooper type. He wants his players to have that work ethic. I recall when the flaky closeted homosexual John Ameche played for Sloan he basically ran him off the team because of his lack of work ethic.

    Maybe the flak the Jazz have taken for years forbeing "too White" factors into not supporting Sloan over Williams.

    The Pacers have darkened up this season after Larry Bird was being called a "racist" last year. The Houston Astros all of a sudden had an influx of hispanics on their roster and a black manager after they were criticized by the Cultural Marxists for being too White (even when they were winning division titles and going to the World Series). The Indianapolis Colts have backtracked somewhat in recent seasons.

    It wouldn't surprise me if the Packers and Patriots have less Whites starting and on their roster next season. It wouldn't make sense on the surface and seems counter-intuitive, but there's no reward in this upside-down society for being "too White," while being coal black is applauded asshowing open-mindedness and being the epitome of "diversity."

    Sloan should get an award or a straight jacket, he's 68 years old and has been dealing with ghetto thugs for most of his life (although less then most coaches cause he was in Utah). At that age it's time to enjoy himself. TNB gets another one.

    Yes the Blue Jays were criticized by a liberal paper called the Toronto Star. It was a total hack job. I think I said this before that the Blue Jays needed the diversity of the Village People to appease the paper. Ie a Native American a gay Black S+M freak etc... The real reason why the Blue Jays became less diverse is they and the Dodgers lost their near monopoly on Dominican players. If Utah is going like this on purpose this will back fire on them because the urban Black player won't sign with Utah unless they are desperate to stay in the league. I was actually surprised to see that Utah only had 3 White players on their roster(4 if you include the injured Okur).Edited by: white is right

    Yes that's why it went from a Blue Jay monopoly to the Blue Jays never having a Latino unless he was a cast off or a long shot prospect. I know the Raptors have done this too. As even some fairly educated Black players have whined about their children learning French and the metric system and Toronto Blacks being "different". Also the lack of Sole Food was another complaint... [​IMG]

    Sloan was the coach of the Jazz for around 20 years I believe. He did an excellent job but as always, affletes must get their ways.

    As far as Kirilenko, I'm very disappointed in him. He's very athletic but he's only averaging 11 ppg. That's unacceptable. Even his shot blocking skills have seem to left him.

    I know J.P. Ricciardi is a Billy Beane guy and they like to draft and search players from college they find alot of value there.
    Jerry Sloan should take his money and go enjoy his grandkids they'll listen to everything he says instead of wasting his time developing players who will end up being degenerates once their playing days are over.

    I think it's pretty obvious what is taking place. Any time a brutha on a team has an issue with his white coach the other bruthas join in. The end result is the coach is forced to resign or fired. Owners will do almost anything to appease the affletes on the team.

    In a Jazz loss to Phoenix yesterday, Al Jefferson was 2-14 from the field. [​IMG]

    Sloan should coach in college. He would be a God. He could also recruit the players he wanted.

    [​IMG] Well stated JV! The "classic" Jazz teams w/ Stockton, Eaton & (later) Hornacek were some of my favorites.

    Yeah I could definitely see him turning a college team into a powerhouse and further add to his resume.. I hope he condsiders it.
