    Gene Anderson died in the early 1990s. Ole Anderson went on to 80s fame as a member of the Four Horsement and was one of the owners of Georgia Championship Wrestling before the company got bought out by Vince McMahon in '84.

    ESPN Magazine picked the T-Wolves to finish third in the West. Clearly a racist publication.
     

  4. How many white guys would it take for you to pay top dollar? I'm sure you can find cheap tickets on StubHub to see the black guys.

    What the fuck does this even mean? I mean, I'm guessing the last word was supposed to be "compliment" but it still doesn't make sense.

    Dumb and racist is no way to go through life, son.

    Agreed.

    Mark, you are a piece of garbage. I bet you're one of those loser sports journalists who likes to complain that you lost out on an opportunity because you're a white male, even though your industry is about 90% white men.

    That fact that you can't distinguish between "complement" and "compliment" shows us that you are probably just a bad sports journalist -- a racist one too.

    Here's my take on it. The team could be all African American and still suck. I think it's just a coincidence and not a ploy to gain fans. I can see the argument made by Tyrone Terrell, chairman of St. Paul's African American leadership council. However, I really don't think that's the case.

    This is an instance where considering the source is wise advice: while Tyrone Terrill is certainly a well-intentioned man, his reputation in Minnesota is not, shall we say, that of someone universally respected for his wisdom and judgment. Back in 1999, after the Clem Haskins/Jan Ganglehoff academic scandal broke, Terrill was the St. Paul city human rights director. After the Pioneer Press ran a somewhat controversial editorial cartoon which depicted college athletes as working on a plantation, Terrill initially filed a human rights complaint against the paper, and then publicly proposed - in all seriousness - that the newspaper submit its cartoons to his department for preapproval. I think ideally your city human rights director should have at least some familiarity with the First Amendment.

    And why didn't they let Ron Simmons be a member? Racists!

    All those white guys on Spain's Olympic team are pretty good. But who cares what color they are as long as they can play? I don't.
