    Re: Is the white CB gone for good?

    Wht a short
    sighted article.
    :'(
    Its ironic twenty years ago.
    Jimmy the Greek was crucified for making a statement that black athletes are gentically more athletic then white people.
    This article doesn't out right say that thought, but it hints at it.
    I would hope that over the course of twenty years the thought of sterotyping would've gone the way of the dinosaur.

    Like someone above said it doesn't matter if your white, black, green or any color, if you can play the position you got game.

    That is true, PPP...which is precisely why Donovan needs to STFU!
    If he wants respect, he just needs to play well.
    Redskins fans WORSHIP Doug Williams...and they don't care what color he was when he was winning a Super Bowl for them!

    I'm with you on that one.
    I think people are really missing the point here.
    Like the perception that black athletes can't play QB (which we know is false) there seems to be another perception that white athletes can't be CBs (or tailbacks, for that matter).


    To be a QB, you need to have the arm, the instincts and the smarts to read the defenses.
    I don't see anything in that description that says you gotta be white.

    To be a CB, you need to have the speed, the leaping ability and the reflexes to cover the man, break up the pass and make the tackle.
    Nothing in there about having to be black.

    And if you win we like you, if you're a good guy too like Chuck Foreman we put you in the RoH. On the other hand if you piss up and down the team and bitch about everything and nothing we don't. It's that simple.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    Just as there is a bias that (generally) steers black athletes away from the QB, this is just suggesting that there is also a bias that steers white athletes away from the "speed" positions.

    Re: Is the white CB gone for good?

    In Madden '07 I drafted a CB who was white once. My friends and I went nuts and laughed for days (not because we're racist but because you know, the article is true in some sense). It had to of been a gitch in the game.
    Because I'm a Vikings fan, they are that much sexier.
