Worth a read and a believe. If everybody will clap, Tinkerbell can pull out of her slump.

Before I read this I thought he was the best thing to happen to the Loins since Barry Sanders.  Now I'm sure of that.

Good on him.

I feel bad that his teams are usually so shiat.

Goofus doubles-down on whitesplaining the anthem and flag to his black teammates:

To be fair goofus walked that back pretty adamantly -nothing good comes of cracking on him AFTER he changed his tunes

That's nice and all, but I'm just waiting for the bye week so we can move on from Patricia, Quinn, and Stafford.

Last season showed that Stafford's the only one who's saving the team from repeated 0-16 seasons.

I agree.  He is the only good person on the team. . . which is the problem.

They need to go scorched earth and let him go win somewhere else.  Time for Detroit to move on and start fresh.  Hopefully they hire a half-decent GM that isn't Millen or Quinn.

I wouldn't mind if they brought back Mayhew and Caldwell.

As much as I love Stafford, I'd also love to see him win, and that ain't never gonna happen in Detroit. I don't think getting rid of him makes them better, but I'm for it to see him win.

Felt the same about scherzer and Verlander for the tiggers.

Boy I didn't. In today's society, no matter what you've done lately, if you did something wrong at any point in your life, you're sunk.

My point was that I think this was a great article. I am the guy who submitted it. I love Stafford. But if someone found a screen shot or had a recording of something Stafford said, he would never recover from something stupid he said.

My hope is nothing is brought to light and Stafford can continue to be a great role model. Ideally because he never said anything dumb.

I think most of this is just made up crap. Yea, him and Amendola were playing catch in a park for 4 days...  then the scary blacks showed up and they got harassed? He didn't write this and it's garbage propaganda.

He said he "arranged to use a field" ... why didn't he explain to the man ...( he never said the race of the man, I'm assuming Pacific Islander)  that he did that and that he's Matt F'in Stafford?

I had to do this as a long haired hippy looking white dude who has lived in some deep red rural areas and had cops pull guns on me. Both hands on the wheel, when they ask for license and registration I calmly explain that I am going to reach slowly to the glove compartment with my right hand, etc. Amazingly, after I shaved my head, got no shiat from the cops at all.

Can't even imagine how much worse things would be if I wasn't white.

Matt Stafford gets it. Thanks man.

You mean Jim Caldwell?  You don't want hin back, he was a crappy head coach.  He coasted to a super bowl on the momentum of the team that Dungy had coached, and when things didn't go according to plan against the Saints he had nothing.  Sean Payton coached circles around him.

Great rebuttal. I guess he shouldn't have practiced in Atlanta, which I assume is about 99% white.

And yea ... it's a BS propaganda piece. He's Matt Stafford and his teammates are all pro football players. He just booked a random field somewhere? Nobody knew about it? It was a handshake agreement to play on some junior high field or what? Details are lacking. Then he got scared and just scurried away to collect all the poor footballs they dumped on the field because some douche said he was gonna call the cops. You don't see how ridiculous this sounds?

The effort you took to devise a speculative rebuttal to the story isn't racist.  It's just a lot of effort to oppose/refute the the anti-racist bona-fides and takeaway of the story.  So by the transitive property...

Look, I get it-- you're gonna obfuscate to dodge the fundamental point.  Based purely on "thinking," which without any demonstrable evidence is better called speculation or making stuff up, you decided the story is bunk.  By it being untrue, then the extended conclusion is both that the conditions that frame the story don't exist, and one can safely discount Stafford as a liar on this subject.  I'd call that fairly prejudicial (emphasis on the pre-judging) in a way favorable to the arguments of racists.  So sure, there are no racists, just a lot of people making totally fair and balanced arguments based on no evidence other than speculation, that just by happenstance are favorable to racists by doubt of anti-racism.

Well I never brought up race. Stafford did. Specifically he called his white receiver Danny Amendola. Then he said four black teammates showed up. No names I guess? SAY THEIR NAMES! BLM! And all 6 of them ran off like little biatches because some cracker said he was calling the cops? Just saying, if this was a crime investigation there'd be a lot of holes to fill. And Stafford singlehandedly booked a field to practice on? In Atlanta? So what if the cops came! Why would they be afraid of the police? (oh because LeBron James and the media) We are the Detroit Lions and we're practicing. Don't laugh at us!

/I guess next time he should book a field on the south side
 
2020-09-19 11:29:30 AM  
Oh and if you didn't get it I said south side because Atlanta self segregates just like everyone else. Rich people in one area, poor people in another but that's a whole other story just like Matt Staffords made up story. Rich Highland Park cracka ass cracka

He is the winningest head coach in Lion's history.  He was the best coach we ever had!
