Riley Cooper: Part II

United States

#1 Aug 6, 2013 You know what?? Let's be REAL about this. Just like Jessie Jackson, and others, Riley Cooper got caught,'by technology', saying something he wishes had never gotten out. But how many times have black athletes made hateful, racially insensitive remarks about white athletes, and many white people, in general, and never had to suffer the shame and humiliation of having their remarks make local, national, and world news??! I'm not making excuses for the dude, I'm just saying that the dude probably harbored a certain degree of racially insensitive feelings for some time, and he was acting like some cocky country boy who messed around and got drunk enough at a country music concert to let his racial insensitivities get the best of him. While I believe everyone should just get past it and move on, my gut feeling tells me that Riley going to be a marked man....on the football field.

#2 Aug 6, 2013 The best thing for Riley Cooper to do is to get off the football field.....because the 'career-ending' hit is likely coming at some point. So the first time Cooper takes a vicious hit that puts him on the field, and possibly a stretcher, I guess officials and the league will be trying to determine if it was with 'malice aforethought' related to his use of an epithet. Yes, Riley Cooper, you've become the 'Mark Fuhrman' of the NFL.
