Max stop talking about collusion because if we wanna talk about collusion then let’s talk about how Tim Tebow got Christian balled.
So? If he ain't doing drugs he ain't got nothing to worry about right? This happens to everyone out here in the real world. Why the fuck should we feel bad for a multi millionaire athlete?

Eric Reid lied about the amount of drug tests he took.... Yet blacks don't care because every single thing bad that happens to abblack man is the white man's fault. Then you let a liberal Jew be your leader because he panders to blacks. Pathetic!

Max is very ill-informed. I'm sorry, I'm not trying to be rude, but he makes this topic about race for no damn reason, and to say that a lack of African American billionaires is due ONLY because of slavery is a close-minded, tunnel-visioned, and untrue statement. Does it play a role? Of course. Does it play the majority role? No it doesn't. I'm not saying black folks perhaps aren't targeted by police officers. Perhaps they are, I simply can't answer that as a white man. Do I believe that their are some element of black culture that need to fixed in order to create more opportunities for themselves? I absolutely believe that. They have every legal and I would even say every social avenue to reach the promise land of the good life. Slavery does play a role today, but if we keep bringing it up like it's the end all be all for our race relations, then no race of any kind in America will ever advance. I mean all of this with the most respect.

+Frederick0220 ya, I read it. It said a "source" told Rappoport that he wasn't tested as many times as he claimed. What source? The same source that investigated the NFL, who happens to investigate itself? Please..why would they defend the algorithm argument so strongly if it wasn't actually 7 times.
Frederick0220 6 kun oldin
+Matti Suffron LOL, it's right in the beginning of the article! "Panthers safety Eric Reid was drug-tested this season, but apparently not the seven times that he claimed. A joint statement from the NFL and NFLPA released Wednesday denied the notion that Reid was targeted unfairly for drug testing and called the amount of times he was tested “normal” after an independent investigation."
Matti Suffron

Let’s be real here. The NFL and MLB is conservatively homogeneous, while the NBA is tolerant for political protest. The NFL is trying to weed out the remaining players who protest, and Eric Reed is the leading figure among the remaining left. The NFL is just WAITING for Reed to slip up so they can have excuse to provide punishment. And for you Stephen A, man what a way to reject cultural identity. The black body is systematically oppressed and degraded in this country. With your media/celebrity platform you should be promoting counter movement against the oppressors, but you’re out here telling Reed to stop.

I just asked my uncle, Corey L. Harris, who played 12 years in NFL; won Super Bowl with Ravens and was the safety on that 2000 Defense....he said that being tested 7 times is VERY ABNORMAL. You may get tested once or twice. Maaaybe 3. In 12 years, he was never tested more than twice in a season. So 7 times is very abnormal. Even worse, 7 times is extremely abnormal in 11 weeks....So I can say he was being targeted.
