Default Black Ref allegedly calls Ravens CB "Boy" in last nights game

"I will be calling my agent in the morning and sending my complaint," the 31-year-old cornerback added. "I have a wife and three kids. Don't call me a boy. Don't call me a boy on the field during a game because I said, 'You've never played football before."'

Apparently Rolle was wrong:

Quote:
The 53-year-old McKinnely played in the NFL as an offensive tackle from 1976 to 1982. He spent five seasons with Atlanta and one each with the Rams and Chicago.
(Snippet from the article).

"In a game of this magnitude, you don't make that kind of call," Rolle said. "Let the players decide the outcome of the game. You can crown them champions now. I'm not taking anything away from them. They are a great team. They're not asking the refs to help them, but it's just an empty feeling"
Refs are paid to call what they see NOTHING else should matter!

Default Re: Black Ref allegedly calls Ravens CB "Boy" in last nights game

Older black men call younger black men "boy" when they're upset with them. Hell, my nephew is 20 years old and I still call him boy when I have a beef with him. This sounds like a young man being pissed at an older man and trying to make a bigger deal out of it than need be. Punk needs to have respect for his elders anyway.

Dude needs some cheese to go with that whine.

I'm glad the Ravens lost. They are a dirty football team and I'm tired of hearing them complain about a vast conspiracy against them to cover up the fact that they just suck.

I was really uncomfortable with all of this until I learned the ref was also a black man. But then I thought of the black cop in 'Boyz N Da Hood' (or whoever they spelled it). I still don't like it.

OK not to really go all political, but would it have been ok if he used the N word? I mean they are both black and that is supposed to be ok if you hear the way Chris Rock and a few others tell it.

Default Re: Black Ref allegedly calls Ravens CB "Boy" in last nights game

That would have been worse. Being from the South, and most of you will agree, the term 'boy' to a black man does not sit well. I don't know where Samari is from, I know he went to FSU, but if he grew up in the South then I cannot fault him for being mad.

I dunno, but I have a feeling that the PC crowd is struggling with this incident. You know, looking for some discrimination a victim or some racism,
but none exists when they realize both parties are Black.

If he's going to complain about being called boy by an elder, then I guess he is a boy.
