Re: Mike Pouncey 'really feels bad' for Eagles' Riley Cooper

[QUOTE=TheOak;514763]Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper has been excused from team activities after it became clear that his presence would be a divisive one in the wake of a racially insensitive comment he made at a Kenny Chesney concert.

Miami Dolphins center Mike Pouncey is now coming to the defense of his former Florida Gators teammate.

"I spent three years in college with him. I feel bad for him. That's not Riley Cooper," Pouncey told NFL.com's Jeff Darlington on Friday. "I know him. I know his family. I wasn't offended by it because I know him. It's just an ugly situation, and I really feel bad for him. I'll reach out to him eventually -- but I want things to die down. I don't want to be one of those guys trying to give him advice."

Pouncey can sympathize with Cooper after the controversy ignited by the "Free Hernandez" hats that he and his twin brother, Maurkice, donned in support of another troubled former Florida teammate.

"I know what he's going through right now. ... One mistake can really hurt," Pouncey explained. "I know he's disgusted with himself -- and I just hope he gets through it. It feels like the lowest point of your career. You're thinking, 'I can't believe I'm that guy who made that mistake.' You don't want to be that guy."

The support from Pouncey, former teammate Cullen Jenkins and current Eagles teammates Michael Vick and Jason Avant suggests the larger problem with Cooper might be shattering the intoxication barrier as opposed to outright bigotry.

Good thing his former team mate feels bad for him, because Cooper's grandma doesn't!!

Not even Riley Cooper's grandma is sympathizing with him - NFL News | FOX Sports on MSN

That does make sense
Vick went to jail, and he never should have. The next time somebody goes out there and shoots a deer, hog, duck, or rabbit they need to go to jail too. They're all animals.


My opinion, Riley shouldn't be punished at all. And no, not because of this stupid reasoning that "they say it all the time" or "listen to the rappers". He shouldn't be punished because its a word, and black people such as myself need to stop trying to tell people what they can or can't say. People should be able to say what they want, and in turn be willing to accept whatever reaction they garner from a person. You want to say it, then take your chances. Because I've been saying it my whole life and have never had a problem, so there's no cause for me to stop. If a white person says it to me, I'm a little uneasy, but not offended. He's got to deal with the rest of the league now on the field. That's punishment enough.

There is a fundamental difference between animals dying for food/sport quickly and humanely , and dying in an illegal sport for entertainment slowly and painfully for profit.

Vick tortured those dogs.

We don't know if Vick tortured anything. He didn't go to jail for animal cruelty. He went to jail for hosting an illegal gambling ring.

Killing for food is one thing, but killing for sport is no different. You're killing an animal for your own pleasure. Because you want to. Because you enjoy killing the animal.

Mind you, I don't care if people hunt, kill, or torture animals in the 1st place. I'm not an animal sympathizer. Is it unnecessary? Yeah. Do I really care? Nah. If you want to hunt, hunt. Want to fight pitbulls, fight pitbulls. Roy Jones does the rooster fighting. Its all the same.

Just my opinion.

Your opinion lack based other than you think so.

There is a huge difference, it's called waste.

If I hunt a cow for food it is the same as a slaughterhouse putting beef on the table...
If I hunt a cow and leave the meat to rot it is illegal and wasteful.


What he did was illegal .. Some would say that is difference enough and reason to go to jail... Breaking the law that is.

When enough people do illegal things, the government starts to take away the rights of the lawful.

You're not going to eat a pit bull. Killing it isn't wasting anything. I'll never waiver on the fact that he was overly punished for that. He should've did community service or maybe a month or two for the gambling ring. They made an example out of him because people were crying over the dogs.

As far as the cow scenario, if not for it being illegal to just leave it there due to it being a food source, more people would do things like that.

Cows are not killed for other than food because there is no sport. no challenge...

Hunters have different drivers than idiots betting on dogs and chickens.

Or simply eating.

The drive or thrill of hunting has nothing to do with killing, it has everything to do with the hunt.

The kill just means the hunt is over.
