    Unfortunantly, Donovan probably has some valid points, however it's such a touchy issue you can't expound on it without hurting somebodies feelings. In fact in this politicle correct society everyone is far to touchy.... making mountains outta molehills.

    Interesting

    Negative reaction did not come immediately. But on Tuesday, McNabb told the Philadelphia Daily News: "It's sad that you've got to go to skin color. I thought we were through with that whole deal."

    Limbaugh resigns from NFL show

    Isn't that article a bit outdated?

    Yes, very.
    I just thought it was very interesting how the race thing is coming up around McNabb again so I was refreshing myself with the Limbaugh thing.

    Re: McNabb tells HBO that race is an issue at QB position

    Maybe now that McNabb has admitted that there is a bias from the sportswriters regarding black quarterbacks, which is the same thing that Limbaugh said, they can bring Rush back and replace one of those liberal idiots Kornheiser or Oberman who have injected 10 times more politics into their broadcasting than Rush ever thought about injecting.

    Re: McNabb tells HBO that race is an issue at QB position

    I think the criticism of McNabb has more to do with the Eagles fanbase than his race.

    Oh and nationality and race are not synonymous


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.
