B/R NFL National Lead Writer Mike Freeman previously was an NFL columnist for CBSSports.com. He has been a sportswriter for the New York Times, Boston Globe and Washington Post, among other papers. His books include "ESPN: The Uncensored History" (2001) and last year's "Undefeated: Inside the Miami Dolphins' Perfect Season."
Alright Mike when's the Stephen A. article getting posted?
So what do you expect Rice's punishment to be? For him to get fired? Because he makes millions he should be fined millioins? Ever heard of the collective bargaining agreement? Be realistic. He was fined $60k! How would you handle that fine? Just because Rice makes more than you do, doesn't devalue the value of that figure. The charge secondly is a misdemeanor. How about you contact your local law makers and cry to them that they make the offense more hefty. I don't know his criminal record, but if this is his first offense, it would seem to be fair in my eyes. You on the other hand want to blow it up into some big drama. Yes men hitting women is bad, it hardly means that the NFL condones his behavior or thinks that its ok. To make this fodder for your article shows your immaturity I am sorry to say.
Why must you put something racial in all of your articles???
I believe in being objective when I express my opinion. Soooooooo......................................I'm not sure what you believe.
^ is it true?
You're the exact reason teams were scared off by Sam. You're hyping him up so much that if he doesn't make the team suddenly it's because that organization is bigoted. Wake up
"This isn't the first time Dungy has made controversial comments when it comes to gays. But this, I mean, um…a black man is saying a minority wouldn't be worth the distraction. A freaking black man is saying this!" You do realize blacks make up like 90% of the league and they have for quite some time. You think because of the skin color Dungy was born with he should automatically sympathize with other minorities? Are you stupid?
Stop writing political articles disguised as sports. It's great that you're supportive of gays and feminism(I am too), but when I(and most people) go to b/r I'm not looking to read about the same stuff every other media form is talking about
Christopher Kavinsky, actually I consider myself a Christian with Agnostic leanings, so I'm far from anti religion. Do I think -organized- religion is a bad thing? More often than not, yes. As far as Jesus, if you honestly think he actually HATED anyone, you're sadly mistaken. Yes, he acted out of anger a few times, but I don't for a second believe that he ever truly hated anyone the way many so-called Christians do. I've read the Bible and there are parts I don't agree with. Religion should never be an excuse to act like a d-bag to another human being.
So I say again, Mike... keep on doing what you're doing. I for one appreciate your fight against bigotry. Despite what these people say, fighting against bigotry is not bigotry. It's doing the right thing.
@KTB I am sure that you liked it cuz you seem just as mindless and moronic as the guy who wrote the article.....
