    Jason Whitlock, Michael Wilbon and Jemele Hill, too:

    This is dying on another thread, but it's worth giving a good solid boot in the ass:

    Maybe if you add more pictures, it won't die on this thread too.

    Mr. Robon, up for the Disingenuous Bottom-Feeder Of The Week Award.

    Good idea, Starman. This deserves a thread of its own. Stupid and offensive comments by a scumbag lawyer representing a scumbag client.

    I can hear the courtroom laughter, now.

    Given what you can see when Googling "manumission" with SafeSearch on, I don't want to know what you can find with it turned off.

    The first of what should be a tornado of rip columns, including comments from a former NAACP leader:


  9. Not only is the lawyer's comment stupid, it doesn't make sense: Were the slave owners giving the slaves the money to buy their freedom?

    If Rodriguez has a brain in his head, he'll fire that attorney for causing a PR nightmare. Time to pay your bill and make this go away, Richie.

    The comments have been out in public print for two days now.

    Rodriguez could have taken action on his own; he could have fired Robon within 30 minutes of hearing the comments, but did not.

    Therefore, he is endorsing those comments.

    Anything he does from now on is simply public relations duct-taping.

    The bulldog Detroit media corners Rodriguez after practice, and manages to not breathe even a single word to question him about the comments:


    Fucking unbelievable.
