Re: Doug Williams said Wha'?

As for the conference championship victories by Dungy and Smith, Williams said: "Winning the Super Bowl that day wasn't as significant to me as this past Sunday. I didn't see it then. I can see this. I can feel this."

to me,he seems like he is more proud of how far more important it is that dungy
and smith got to be the 1st 2 black men to be headcoach in the superbowl,than anything he or any other black athelete has done in the nfl,including the 2000 yard seasons of simpson,sanders,davis,lewis,and erick dickerson,and the mvps won by LT,Mcnair,and san diego's LT.i can see his point!

Re: Doug Williams said Wha'?

It would appear the point Doug was trying to make was that winning super bowl XXII and being the MVP was not as important as seeing minorities have opportunities in coaching, as well as im management.

It would be interesting to witness who in the media would ask Rex Grossman or Peyton Manning; How does it feel to be the 40th white QB to win the SB.

It would be especially nice for Dungy, who essentially put together the team that Gruden took to the Super Bowl in Tampa. Plus you look at African-American head coaches around the NFL and they are Dungy disciples-lovie smith, herm edwards, and mike tomlin.

Re: Doug Williams said Wha'?

[Deep sigh]. At least it was an interesting, intelligent, and civil discussion at one point. Oh well, I'm done with this one.

No hard feelings SkinEmAll, I just didn't appreciate the joke.

Gotta explain captain.
Guys, Im sorry!! I meant to follow up with that post, but the family needed me and then company stopped by to visit. I promise Im not a looney and I guess the joke really doesnt reach far out of my little circle. Anyway there is a band,Type O Negative, who are not a racial band by the way, who have a song, Kill all the white people, that really is a joke song. It has no true meaning, and is kinda of tongue in cheek. A friend of mineback then, who was black, would always start singing the lyrics to this song anytime race was discussed, as a joke ofcoarse. So there you go, please dont be offended, and if anyone was or just thought Ive flipped my lid, I apologize sincerely. And just for the record I think it is way cool that we have two black coaches going to the superbowl, but more importantly we have two GREAT and derserving coaches going to the superbowl.

In re-reading my post I realized that it was unduly harsh. So, I apologize. I was 99% sure that you didn't mean anything by it, but I didn't get the joke and was really perplexed. So, I just jumped the gun because statements like that, even when they're part of a joke, can create a big mess. Sorry bud and I hope this public apology is acceptable. Cheers.

By the way, I've made a few jokes on this site that went awry and caused a fuss. I think it happens to everyone at least once.

Hey bro, dont sweat it at all. I didnt think you were being harsh in anyway. It was completely clear to me what you were expressing. Hell, by the time I realizied what I had done, I gotta tell you, I was afaid to check the board. Well I just hope everyone understands what it was. Cheers back too ya!

Re: Doug Williams said Wha'?

I remember a few years back when the press was making a big deal about Ed McCaffrey, (the WR from Denver). They kept saying things like he is fast even though he is white. Like they couldn't believe it or something, as if he really wasn't a white guy he just had a really good disguise.
The same thing with Jason Sehorn a few years ago. If I had to hear about the "only white starting CB in the NFL", one more time I was going to hurl something at my TV.

Basically what I am saying is that the racism cuts both ways.

Yup. Case in point.....Michael Irvin's comments about Tony Romo. The guy should have been suspended, censured, fired, or something.

what did that goofball say. as far as your other comments, i dont think you were out of line. that statement, alone, meritted a response similar to the way you responded.

He basically said that Tony Romo is too athletic to be all white and that he must have some black blood running through his veins. I'm paraphrasing of course as I do not remember exactly what he said.
