Detroit News columnist Rob Parker really doesn't appear on my radar screen much, except for this infamous column, and of course his work on the dearly departed Quite Frankly with Stephen A. Smith. So that's two strikes against him right there. But now comes the news that he apparently fabricated sources that said a Michigan State quarterback was involved in a recent assault of another student. He first defended his statement, made this past Sunday on the WDIV-TV Sports Final Edition show that he co-hosts, and then backtracked and apologized for the whole thing today. Parker had said on the air that Kirk Cousins, a backup quarterback for Michigan State, was involved in a fight between Michigan State football and hockey players at a party in East Lansing. One problem: Cousins' parents who live in Holland, Mich. say that their son was at home all that evening. MSU head coach Mark Dantonio was also not amused.
He did it to the Lions too. That’s why I called him DMF.
Not following the 'Skins I *thought* RGIII was another Michael Vick -- all Hype.
Now I'll have to Root For Him!
Full Disclosure: I *really* don't like the Skins. When they play 'The Boys' I always root for Dallas.
[ps: Go Bears!] (or better, go Lovie and Mike Tice - please. You two are killin' Jay Cutler)
They didn’t fire the drunken turd Dana Jacobsen for what
she said. They just let her contract run out!
And they fired Rush Limbaugh for saying what?
Given RGIII’s eloquence, this is how I would respond if UI was him:
“Mr. Parker, while you have the right under our Constitution to say whatever you wish about me, a real man would know that my political views are nobody’s business but mine. A real man would know better than to judge my relationship with my wife-to-be by the color of our skin instead of the content of our characters and the strength of our love. And a man with a brain bigger than a lima bean would be able to figure out that racist rhetoric is still pathetic and evil when it comes out of a black man’s mouth. In short, sir, engage in coprophagia.”
You make a big mistake.
Look at the riots that happened in London last year. That showed that an underclass that can’t and won’t function without government bennies is a result of culture, not color.
If there’s something you don’t like about contemporary blacks, it comes from liberalism.
but, unfortunately, not fired, owing to the lax standards for journalists. Parker's assignment, first and foremost, was to tell the truth, so he lied.
But then, getting easy grades while "shaping the truth" is half the reason people "study" journalism.
Rob Parker, the journalistic slacker, is just jealous of a smart decent man who gives his heart and soul to his work and unlike Parker, is comfortable in his own skin.
Rob Parker must really hate the Washington Redskins, having falsely accused BOTH of their quarterbacks, Kirk Cousins AND RGIII.
But then, maybe that’s just Parker’s typical work product.
Intra race racism.
Irony is a dish best served by the unaware.
Don’t give up on us the kool-aid and Stockholm Syndrome is very strong in the black community. Just judge on an individual basis. In many places liberalism, collectivism, fascism and communism is the only thing that they know. When you have generations of welfare recipients and lack of fathers and the eschewing of education you get people like Mr. Parker.
I can confirm for everyone that Rob Parker has been suspended until further notice by ESPN. I received the confirmation directly from ESPN.
Who was the other Black Idiot Sportsguy that you had in mind for firing in the same week, besides Rob't. Parker?
I sympathize with your dilemma, tho' ..... so many morons, so little time .....
I'm not an Eagles fan, so I'm not sure of the personalities involved, but basically Limbaugh said flat-out that he thought the Eagles organization was doing a little affirmative-action goody-dust sprinkling over their then-quarterback, who Rush thought wasn't maybe "all that" -- okay, mind you, but overpromoted and overpraised.
That caused a lot of hard feelings and an instantaneous boycott-and-harassment campaign from the Left against Limbaugh, his hairline, his Oxycontin scrip, Mr. Snerdly, and anyone/thing else they could think of. Morons, utter morons. But the pushback from the Eagles, ESPN, and the League was another matter. So Rush said, "Okay, I don't need this; if you guys feel bad because I said something I felt needed saying, then let's just call it a day."
That's the way he told it on-air, anyway. The quarterback under discussion was Donovan McNabb.
Wiki says the flap was back in 2003; I'm showing my age, because I only thought it was two or three years ago.
