The Power of Sport to bring together…

It is nice interesting to note that race is an issue in all forms of football: Standard and American.

Why can’t we all just get along?

  1. You beat me to it, John, though I had a slightly different slant. I find Dungy’s comments to be stupid. Was the skit really ‘racist’? It’s absurd!! That the ‘tempted’ individual was a black man is only a result of the fact that the start of the night happened to be, well, a black man. Were the Colts playing Dallas instead of Phildelphia, it would have been Peyton Manning in the locker room. (Unfortnately, had it been the Colts, Dallas would have love by a similarly hugh margin!)

    Tragically, Dungy said it was “the first thing” he thought about. Thus, his initial reaction is still that society’s against him for his skin color. Let’s all hope for the day when skin color is no more or less a factor in anything as is hair or eye color…

  2. Mistakes:

    …that the STAR of the night…

    …would have LOST by a similarly HUGE…

    I probably also didn’t spell everything correctly, but alas…

  3. The English players should have just walked off the field. What most disturbs me is that the Spanish media just shrugged it off as “naive”.

  4. I also found Tony Dungy’s comments a bit over the top. Of course, looking at the history of how he has been treated as a coach, I can see why he might be quick to speculate regarding racism.

  6. Yeah, John, you do have to wonder why he got the boot after really resurrecting that Bucs team. The countr-argument is that Gruden basically took his team to the Superbowl and won it, but I don’t know if that’s always such a good thing. After all, Barry Switzer took what was basically Jimmy Johnson’s team in Dallas and won a Superbowl there in short order, too.
