DR.Z at it again

SI.com - Writers - Dr. Z: Latest dog-fighting twist,*HOF candidates and more - Thursday May 24, 2007 12:49PM

The sad thing is this guy is paid to be a professional journalist, you would think he would actually pay attention to a situation, rather than use his obvious bias towards the Redskins to take yet another shot at the organization. I understand he said the email came from a reader, but im talking about the "take your apology and shove it" quote, which i do believe came from Dr.Z. Im sorry but i do not remember Chris Samuels having much to do with what Portis said, actually Samuels seemed sort of shocked that Portis said those things. I feel bad for Clinton, he is really a stand up guy who gives to the community and never gets in trouble on or off the field, and he decided to take up for a friend, wow what a terrible time we live in when a few words can lump you in with the AJ Nicholson and Chris henrys of the world, i especially was irritated by the caption under the picture of Portis, "Portis shows his true colors", Clintons a good guy, and for a scumbag like DR.Z to even put the thought in peoples heads that Portis is a fraud absolutely frustrates the hell out of me. I dont know if im the only one now, but I support Clinton Portis and i sort of understand what he was trying to get at when he said those things.

Re: DR.Z at it again

The guy obviously has a stick up his ass and some major issues other than football.

"Can the Redskins be the 2006 Saints this year? No, because I don't think they have the offensive players nor scheme. But don't go by me. I'm always wrong about this team, as brother Snyder is always quick to point out."

It sounds like he thinks he can do a better job, which in my opinion is preposterous. I wonder what his stance on the franchise's 3 superbowl championships is?

Re: DR.Z at it again

I'm not reading too much into this. So he generalizes about the actions of players over the words of a couple guys.
Portis & Samuels deserve criticism, but I don't think he's so much as criticizing them personally as he is the general behavior of nfl players & pro athletes.

Why does Samuels deserve criticism, he did nothing wrong

Re: DR.Z at it again

You know, we're at the point now where Clinton Portis is taking more criticism for his comments than what Michael Vick is actually *accused of*.

Re: DR.Z at it again

I think what Dr. Z forgot to mention is that football players are also humans and at times we all make mistakes. Yes Portis and Samuels did it on a much larger platform but by gosh calm down a little - if the guys say they are sorry than let it go for crying out loud. Portis said he does not condone dog fighting after the comment - but unless he comes out and gives a 4 hour apology and donates his time to the ethical treatment of animals that is not good enough for the media? I believe what is occuring is the media is making this out to be more than it is. Samuels even said after the comments I think this could be a mess - because the media are like the very animals that fight in the pits they are talking about.

Re: DR.Z at it again

I discount what DR. Z ever says and to be honest SI in general. SI is like to sports what People Magazine is to Hollywood. Mostly hype, not much substance. Man this PC stuff is killing this nation and turning it into a bunch of pansies. OK, what Clinton said was quasi moronic in defense of Vick, but to me he was just trying to defend Vick and take a libertarian approach to it. I mean we have created a slaughterhouse in Iraq with actual human beings being wasted and folks here care more about dogs fighting. Dumb, just dumb. And guess what? The DA in the Vick case admits there is no solid evidence to link Vick with the dogfights, so guess who will get off fairly clean or just with a fine. All of this hubub for nothing, just another sensationalist story.

Re: DR.Z at it again

What a bad writer he is. SI has had some decent writers like Dan Jenkins and Rick Reilly. They must be embarrassed when they see such incipid drivel.

Re: DR.Z at it again

it is amazing that when people say one negative thing about the Redskins, how people out here call them the worst writers, dont deserve to have the job, morons, ect... The guys have a loyal following, and trust me, he doesn't give two shits if you read his columns. he gets paid the same amount of money. Ports and Samuels did come off as a couple of Jack asses in that interview. Laughing about something this serious is stupid. What portis said was stupid. I dont care if he apologized, it was plain stupid to say what he did. It shows he has been to a few fights himself! Just because a writer points out the obvious, all of the sudden he an idiot??? They will not be the Saints this year. When are you Redskins fans on this site become realistic? What have the Redskins done in the last 10 years that makes you think they are going to win?? I HOPE they go 16-0 and win it all, but given our history, underacheiving is more the norm that making the playoffs. Mr Z is not saying anything bad about the org. you people need to take off the burgandy & gold shades and look through the clear shades of the realistic Redskin fans. Stop bashing a writer because he says something (by the way that is NOT OFF BASE) about our Skins. More often than not, what these guys have written has turned out to be true!!

Re: DR.Z at it again

DR. Z has something against the skins. He doesn't just point out the obvious. He targets the skins intentionally. He writes stupid collums and is always wrong. He picked us to win 3 games the year that we won 10. He is a moron.
