    Not sure i understand McCoy as well as you do....

    Here's an article from a black writer that covers the chargers....interesting perspective and appreciate the challenge to the situation rather then the high road of banishing Cooper for his idiotic comments.

    Great read. I think the word gets thrown around too much by white and black people alike (and saying it at all is too much) Cooper was very dumb to say what he said but I think this whole story got kind of blown out of proportion

    This was very well said. Shouldn't just be on a sports (let alone one specific team's) website.

    Re: Philly WR Cooper racial slur and McCoy's reaction

    Cooper is seeking "counseling" now after this? I'm not saying it's an okay thing for him to say, but this makes it sound like he's mentally unstable. It's been blown way out of proportion.

    LeSean McCoy says heís upset at Riley Cooper, I guess Riley should have pushed a woman off a bus or had followers attack his Babyís Momma.

    Yep, LeSean McCoy seems like a pretty ****** person. Cooper really shouldn't lose any sleep over not having his respect.

    But this is probably Urban Meyer's fault, just like the whole Aaron Hernandez thing was his fault too.

    I'm sure it's just a way for him to make it look like he's really sorry and trying to change. But I totally agree with this. Complete non-issue. Yeah, he should't have said it, and it's unlucky that it was caught on camera, but really who hasn't said something they know they shouldn't have. Just another example of today's media..

    No, it's totally a PR thing to announce that "you're seeking counseling." Counseling for what? Either he's a racist, or just stupid. There's no "counseling" for that...

    Actually, there is counseling for both of those things.

    Well, the Eagles say he's going to undergo "sensitivity training" - which is not intended to change Cooper's core attitudes and beliefs, but to show him how to act professionally and respectfully in a work environment. In other words, not how to think, but how to behave. He's still a racist, or stupid. Alcohol is a truth serum...

    I think Cooper is a piece of trash, but that "word" is heard probably hundreds of times a week in the locker room between the music being played and the players themselves saying it.

    Not the same thing. Cooper used the hard R version. Different context, totally different meaning.
