if you don't think race played a role in the backlash you're a f**king idiot. And Favre went on TV twice and said he was retiring and then came back(Interview with Ed Werder, and the infamous Packer press conference). This past off season he had a long drawn out process thats costing the team right now.

The top 6 hated athletes in America were black. Kobe Bryant is more hated then Roethlisberger. Why is that? Roethlisberger got accused of r*pe twice, Kobe only once.

Not to mention the difference between the reaction of steroid use by Barry Bonds and Roger Clemens.

of course. Why do you think the NBA has an image problem, why they are considered thugs? The NFL has more off the field incidents than the NBA. It's because the white QBs are the face of the league.

These people are so bitter and pathetic, they don't realize they set us back far more than they help us.

Can't demand fair treatment when you hold grudge against a race yourselves.
I have no issue with white people, I have some really good friends that are white, but I already know that Black athletes and people are looked at differently than white athletes and people. I don't have a grudge, I wasn't mad at Bron and I wasn't mad at Brett either.

If you don't think race played a part in this, you are either white or ignoring it completely

The common denominator is ego..not race. I'm not gonna say race wasn't an issue at all but the reason kobe and bron are hated had a lot to do with how unlikeable their personalities are before their "situations." If ray allen caught a case, he wouldn't get anywhere as much hate as kobe even tho they're both black. Charles barkely did some questionable things and has said some questionable things, but is one of the most loved sports figures. The thing with lebron was that he took a giant s**t on the his home state on national television and basically sounded like an a**hole in doing so when he said "I'm taking my talents to south beach."

But this whole thing is funny tho, cuz I usually see white dudes d!ck riding bron more so than n*ggas anyways.

If this was Dirk Nowitski or Steve Nash people would have been like oh it was great TV and way to go raising money for the kids

Let a black man do it and he's attention whoring, they did the same the to kobe when he went on the radio When's the last time somebody called Donald Trump an attention wh0ore? But Diddy's a **** right??

But its ok for eli manning, roger clemens, and brett farve to stunt on teams openly in public, I aint see no Q rating reports then. Nobody was on tv burning Johnny Damon's jersey

Racism still alive, ya'll just be concealing it.
Oh please. Lebron is an egotistical scumbag, steve nash and dirk nowitski are not...at least not that we know of. "The Decision" is the only reason people hate lebron now. If he wouldn't have pulled that b**ch move and just signed with Miami quietly no one would even still be talking about this.

I can only speak for myself, and race had nothing to do with it. Yes I'm white but I'm not naive, race plays a factor in many situations. I was one of the first people to be upset at espn not reporting big bens first r*pe allegation while also reporting on the one against Shannon Brown. Race wasn't a factor in this situation, simple as that. I blame Lebron's manager for this all of this, the guy keeps f**king up.

Brett Favre has a huge ego, not to mention him disobeying his coach and not wanting to come off the fied. When Carmelo did that he was slaughtered. No there is clearly a race factor. LeBron also donated 3 million to charity so k!ll that noise. Make up your f**king mind, first LeBron has a big ego, but then in a next breath you will called him a sidekick. What egomaniac would want to share the spotlight?

Listen, anytime somebody acts like an a**hole, they're gonna get heat. This hate for bron was already stewing..the whole referring to himself in the third person, the whole "I spoil people with my play", the whole "check my stats," regular season hero, the dancing during games, clowning fans in rochester during a preseason game by pretending to go into the game and then when the crowd cheered he laughed and sat back down, and basically getting crowned without doing jack s**t yet turned a lot of people off about him and anybody who was previously on the fence about him just hopped over to the "hate" side. Personally I couldn't give a f**k less about who likes him or hates him like some groupie a.ss n*ggas in this thread but I'm just telling it like I see it.

Brett Favre is not liked, I don't know where you get that from. People are sick of hearing about him and he was definitely blasted for his egomaniac ways over the past summers.

in this case it didn't

this has everything to do with Bron failing to deliver on promises he himself made, and then jetting down to Miami to form a super-trio with Bosh n Wade. I agree with you that black athletes n black folks in general get ridiculed more for s**t than whites (most of the time) but in this case it isn't about race. It's about ego's and failed promises, and pulling a ho move by abandoning the ppl that supported you from jump street.

race did play a role. Bret Favre gets no hate for the team hoping he does because hes white. Ben Rothlesberger is not getting any heat from the news or fans cause hes white.


Race has alot to do with the way white america responds to things an athlete does. If Michael Vick was white, he would not have gotten nearly as much hate as he did and still does now.
these two ppl are on point lol @ some of u dumb f**ks who think race has nothing to do with it lol ha ha race is everything man period its always cool to hate on the young rich black stars man they build u up to tear u down even more just for entertinment value. No one goes in on bret favre and eil like they do blk stars t.o cant even take a p!ss without it been talked about bret favre held his team by gun point for the whole damn summer now the whole team is in trouble and no one cares. Yea they say s**t here and there but they act like its no big deal.

VICK IS PLAYING GREAT BUT THEY ALWAYS LOVE TO BRING UP THE DOG s**t WITH EVERY GOOD THING THEY SAY ABOUT HIM THEY HIT HIM WITH SOME BAD RITE AFTER. yET NO ONE SAYS s**t ABOUT BILL COACH FROM THE PATS NEVER BRING UP THE CHEATING JUST SAYS HE'S A GREAT COACH HELL THEY EVEN GET MAD WHEN U DO BRING IT UP. SO U CANT TALK ABOUT THAT BUT WHEN U BRING UP VICK U CAN TALK ABOUT DOGS WHEN THEY BRING UP KOBE U WANNA TALK r*pe UMMM I WONDER WHY s**t NEVER WILL CHANGE
