Southern Knight said:I'm happy that Finneran got his money, but it is disheartening to hear him say in interviews that he is looking forward to helping first-round busts Michael Jenkins and Roddy White "develop into stars and to hopefully become starters." W.T.F.?!?
Kaptain Poop said:That attitude will land his butt firmly on the bench. Why do white players always bow-down to their black counterparts? The reverse never happens.
Jimmy Chitwood said:how many of you guys remember Chris Collinsworth? he was the ONLY outspoken white skill guy that i've ever heard about, although i'm pretty young.
anyway, he never backed down to the black afaleete, and was highly outspoken concerning how good he thought he was. all it got him was the a$$hole label despite being a 3-time Pro Bowler.
there are few white players in the League right now who are gifted enough and paid enough to get away with that kind of talk (Grant Wistrom, Adam Archuleta, Matt Jones anyone?), and Finneran certainly isn't the guy to do it. he's a great player, but speaking out about the BS that white guys go through would do nothing but get him a job in the Arena League after a visit from the turk. he's smart enough to know that, however disappointing that is for us.
whiteCB said:Finneran just lost a lot of respect from me. What a loser additude. The appropiate thing to say was, "I hope to help all the WRs on the team including myself, become better players...blah blah" That comment would have shown 2 things 1. Brian is a team guy
2. Brian is a beta male and not a weak person who satisfied for being a backup
