Riley Cooper

I was reading today about Riley Cooper, who during practice said a word so vile Profootballtalk.com can’t even write what it was. Pathetic.

Holy smokes, this guy dropped the N-bomb during a concert. Now the team, the league and of course douchebag media unleashes everything they can on the guy. For those of you viewing on a link from profootballtalk.com, here’s a brief bit of what exactly Cooper said:

In the video, Cooper vowed to “fight every n—–” at the July concert in Philadelphia.

oO.

Yeah, it’s bad. Yeah, he’s going to probably get cut at some point. Yeah, the team and the league had to step in and do something. But the guy’s entire life is going to be ruined. I think that’s enough payback.

But it will never be enough for the media.

I recall somewhere, sometime in this country, you could say what you wanted to say under your First Amendment rights as long as it didn’t cause physical harm. That seems to be the case with players like Chris Kluwe, who could say whatever he wanted in this letter to a Maryland state legislator. I guess “holy fucking shitballs” and “lustful cockmonster” are nice terms to use. But Kluwe’s is a popular cause. I thought freedom of speech applied to even things that were not popular. In fact, its more important when people use speech for things that aren’t popular. It wasn’t long ago Kluwe’s cause wasn’t very popular.

Cooper didn’t kill anyone, he didn’t slaughter dogs and break federal gambling laws, he didn’t break into your dorm room and steal your laptop and he didn’t break any laws that I know of. All I know is, he’s going to get flogged in public for using a word a hell of a lot of people…including Paula Deen…have used.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.

    What up? What ever happened to sticks & stones will break my bones but names will never hurt me? Call me anything you like & I will not be pissed, unless, you calls me late 4 dinner. What is so big about the n word. We uses it all the time in the hood. It just be a word.
