    We are only a few years removed when we were talking about the rarity of black quarterbacks. How would it sound if a reporter was laughing at Cam saying how weird it was to see a Black starting QB at the podium? Or, what if Tom Brady was up there laughing mocking a female reporter asking about routes? I'm not beating up Cam, just calling out the different angles and reactions.

    Why? I believe that most fans watch NFL games for the football, not for the players opinions, gaffes and assorted quirks, so what difference should it make if you don't agree with the players opinions? Have we become such brain washed, partisan lemmings that we now carry the irrational idiocy of our politics and hyper-sensitivity to political correctness into sports?

    IMHO the players opinions on anything other than the game they play are completely worthless which makes all this outrage over them pathetic.

    I must admit that it did bring a smile to myself; here a "root" is slang for ....uh....sex.

    Wow, then he would have not only been discriminating against a woman, he would have the LGTB lobby on his back as well.

    Hindsight. If only.......

    It is so weird to see an NFL QB mocking a woman's knowedge of football and get away without any backlash. Why did he get a pass?

    What would have happened to the reporter? She would have lost her job with no career.

    But darky can say these things with impunity.

    That's a good point. Was there not a sports reporter that got shit for pointing that very fact out ? But yeah, she could have easily gone right to that fact.
