Please tell me how that sounds "dumb as f**k"? From the guy who wrote
Slavery is making millions?
Slavery is being famous?
Slavery is living a life 99% of the world only DREAMS of?
Slavery is working until you're 35 and being set for the rest of your life?
Adrian chose his life. And there's nothing slavery about it. Do you know what slavery is? Do you know what it entailed?
Please...inform me what's dumb as f**k about that? I look forward to reading your response.
my dude, im not gonna go back and forth with you on this s**t. I know and alot of other ppl in this thread get what he was trying to say... its mofos like you who want to argue the point of using the word slavery in its literal meaning. Knock it off...you just want to argue and bicker. grow the f**k up..and its not about all that. try to understand what that dude is saying....
I understand the book but when d!ck Vitale called Stern a warden and the players prisoners makes more sense. To call it slavery is when you get TOO serious. Its probably a good book though.
on some real s**t...just take the time and read the book. I promise you...you wont regret it. it opens your eyes on what the sports industry is about. it shows it in a different light..not just about how these dudes are making millions but how these dudes are like cattle in a sense...and compared to the owners...they're making s**t.
if i remember correctly..theres an example where Rhoden tells us about how the slave masters used to come together with they're biggest and strongest slaves and have them f!ght, they would bring there fastest slaves and have them race and all types of different s**t...for bragging rights for that year . like "my slave is better then your slave", type s**t.
another history lesson he talks about is horse racing. On how it used to be a black sport and 99% of the horse jockeys used to be black. and how they were squeezed out/black balled because they were getting too much money/popularity....
the book is deep....
hes isnt being technical hes just saying that all the control is in the owners and not the players in a sense the control slave masters have on slaves its all about what goes in the owners pockets
some of these dudes just dont get it.
