The two top NFL Teams are the most white?


From FoxSports:

You get one NFL Truth today. Watching Chad Johnson and Larry Johnson undermine their respective head coaches, Marvin Lewis and Herm Edwards, on Sunday gave me a singular focus, forced me to contemplate an uncomfortable truth.

African-American football players caught up in the rebellion and buffoonery of hip hop culture have given NFL owners and coaches a justifiable reason to whiten their rosters. That will be the legacy left by Chad, Larry and Tank Johnson, Pacman Jones, Terrell Owens, Michael Vick and all the other football bojanglers.
In terms of opportunity for American-born black athletes, they're going to leave the game in far worse shape than they found it.

It's already starting to happen. A little-publicized fact is that the Colts and the Patriots — the league's model franchises — are two of the whitest teams in the NFL. If you count rookie receiver Anthony Gonzalez, the Colts opened the season with an NFL-high 24 white players on their 53-man roster. Toss in linebacker Naivote Taulawakeiaho "Freddie" Keiaho and 47 percent of Tony Dungy's defending Super Bowl-champion roster is non-African-American. Bill Belichick's Patriots are nearly as white, boasting a 23-man non-African-American roster, counting linebacker Tiaina "Junior" Seau and backup quarterback Matt Gutierrez.

For some reason, these facts are being ignored by the mainstream media. Could you imagine what would be written and discussed by the media if the Yankees and the Red Sox were chasing World Series titles with 11 African-Americans on their 25-man rosters (45 percent)?

We would be inundated with information and analysis on the social significance. Well, trust me, what is happening with the roster of the Patriots and the Colts and with Roger Goodell's disciplinary crackdown are all socially significant.

Hip hop athletes are being rejected because they're not good for business and, most important, because they don't contribute to a consistent winning environment. Herm Edwards said it best: You play to win the game.

I couldn't have said it better myself. And it is absolutely true. There is a connection between race and crime, not between poverty and crime.

That's not what Whitlock is saying at all Anonymous.

"Race is not the determining factor when it comes to having a good or bad attitude. Culture is."

Tom Brady, two illegit children by two women in the same year. I guess this is what white culture is all about. Soon, as many white children will be born out of wedlock as black children. Its not about race, its social-economic. As white culture crumbles, instead of trying to fix it, you say "...atleast we are not black...". Soon you will be. Too bad we can not work together to fix it.

If you want to win in football ... you must have a white man running the ship ... Go Patriots!

If you want to win football games, and you want to become a dynasty team, you better hire all the white players and coaches you can - it is as simple as that, the statistics don't lie . . .

The weak white coaches from High School thru the NFL discriminate against their own RACE and better players.
They use 40yd speed as a way to turn off Caucasian players,when the fastest players in league are White ie Wes Welker and hhundreds of others.

ashamed! said...

Wow! When I read this post it almost makes me ashamed to be white. Do you morons actually believe what you're writing? If you do, try fielding an all white team and watch it lose EVERY GAME.

I think you could make a perfectly legitimate all white NFL team. Something that is rarely talked about is the racism that occurs throughout college football and the NFL. White players are rarely ever considered for starting positions at many of the skill and speed positions regardless of their athletic talent. If everything were done without any preconceived notions or discriminations I think that college ball and the NFL would be whiter. This isn't to say that I'm racist against african americans in any way just my thoughts.

most of the blacks come from shitty areas so they cant be disciplined like others meaning they aren't going to be as dedicated to it because at the end of the day they don't give a fuck its all about them.

Dear "Ashamed", if you are that ashamed then please feel free to hop the next flight to the Dark Continent so you won't have to be so ashamed of being white. The ONLY posted comment I see that either whites or blacks should be offended by is the moronic KKK post.

The majority of kids in my school in England were white. There were some black kids but not many. The result of that was that the black kids mixed in with all of us and we were all mates. They didnt speak or act differently or search out other black kids to hang out with. Problems occur when theres a black majority. Like it or not black people act differently when all together. Look most countries or neighbourhoods where this is the case and you'll see its true. The NFL's a prime example....

Of course RACE MATTERS. All you politically correct sheeple should look at the reality through something else than your TV. 'Culture' follows the people, not the other way around. Please show me a black country with better 'culture'.

In some time there will no longer be an NFL cos as the 3rd world population takes over, the country will turn into a 3rd world dump.
