Rob Parker Suspended Indefinitely for Comments about RG3 and Race


Not much else needs to be said there. The guy is an idiot and shouldn't be given any avenue to air his thoughts and opinions till they can actually be relevant ones that are not inflammatory (or at least serve a purpose other than angering people).

This isn't the first time he's said something incredibly stupid either.

Back in 2008 when the Detroit Lions were in the midst of a less-than glorious season he asked then head coach Rod Marinelli (whose daughter was married to the team's defensive coordinator at the time) this:

"Do you wish your daughter would have married a better defensive coordinator?"

Come on man! Can you be a little more offensive and rude? He ended up resigning from the Detroit News (where he worked at the time) and tried to apologize for the comment. I can't say I blame Marinelli for not accepting the apology.

Parker has clearly made it a practice to try and be as much of a jerk spouting off inflammatory crap as he possibly can.

Try talking sports for the sake of talking sports Rob and people might actually want to listen to you. Till then you are VH1 reality show waiting to happen--one massive train wreck.

(Yes, I know the pic is totally unrelated, but I've been waiting to use it and honestly got tired of waiting.)

  1. And had he been white, he'd have been fired. Double standard?
