generally they don't want their announcers to have opinions on controversial topics while they announce a game. I don't think he really said anything fireable other than just causing twitters to get heated. How that squares with the endless promotion of FIRST TAKE MOVING TO ESPN, i cannot answer.


Well, I guess that I also meant that I don't really see what Twitter was fired up about unless you twist up his words a bit.

He NEVER implied what Mixon did was okay. Nor did he downplay it. In fact, he called it "brutal" a couple of times, among other things. Then he said that he hopes that everything works out well for the kid.

I will admit that the language was clunky, there is no doubt about that. But, to me, this seems like a very clear case of people twisting words to fit their agenda.


You mean like this deadspin headline:

Brent Musburger Praises Joe Mixon, Then Gets Angry At People Who Were Mad He Praised Joe Mixon


Right.

Was what Brent said actually awful or was it something that we immediately recognized as just clunky enough that we could do the outrage dance?

He praised Mixon as a great running back (which is inarguable), not as a stellar human being.


the part where he wished somewhat fervently for mixon to have a great future is the rough part. i do think there is a lot of "we can get him on that" happening.


One of the things that really used to appeal to me about "the left" was their hope for rehabilitation and their desire to give people a second chance.

It disappoints me that principle has been compromised (or so it seems). As a society, we should be rooting for comebacks. I'm no fan of Michael Vick nor of the things that he did, but since serving his time, I've been happy to see him making positive contributions and having an impact. That used to be something that the left believed, I thought.

**I don't know if the left vs right comparison is 100% bulletproof here. More of a general idea.


yeah, i dunno if it's a political thing. i agree in principle with your idea about democrats not doing second chances anymore but i think it's everyone (r's, d's, i's, w.e.'s) and it's cultural rather than political. If you are not in the same circle on the venn diagram as me you do not get a 2nd chance.


That's the winner. TY, Yokel.

also, the 2nd chance can be only so great. making little money working for a non-profit is ok, but receiving adulation and potentially a large salary as a sports star is not a proper 2nd chance.

the lady that was our MOH in my wedding always said this shit about Vick. He should work at Walmart!

Why? Whats the difference? If an NFL team wants to hire him, and he's eligible for a job, then...nevermind, who cares. Its like talking to children.

@ClayTravis
Brent Musburger just attempted to walk back his Joe Mixon comments and was just as bad the second time.


Oh.

The first comment sounded bad, the 2nd comment was Trumpian thin-skinned (who gives a fuck what people are rattling on about on Twitter), but whatever.

I thought Brent was off the whole game, if I'm being 100.


if clay is on your side you are on the wrong side. no matter what it's about.

the guy got a year suspension for a bar fight. if he doesn't do anything stupid from here on, he's fine. Brent PROBABLY meant to say it that way but it came out sounding a little bit like Stanford Dad. Brent has the same problem as Mixon, he needed to not say another stupid thing after the sexy horse incident. Anyway, i think Bacon is right, this will end up with him getting a Fox gig and he'll actually be calling better games next year so this whole thing is better for me. Also for Fox, assuming they take him, as they will have the only 2 announcers that can make a shit game entertaining (Gus & Brent).


This guy is spitting fire. Smart, Sexy Yokel is on a roll.

cant embed, but did you guys see this celebration:
https://vine.co/v/599AdOUlUvA
It sure looks like Oklahoma is celebrating Joe Mixon's TD by fake punching him in the face


It kinda does look like that, imo. :lol:

Me and PJ's SJW pal had this to say on Twitter:
I hope Oklahoma football loses every game as long as I'm alive. Bunch of fucking scumbags.


God, its not about you, PLB. As long as youre alive. OK, numnuts.

Auburn fans were apparently chanting "He hits women" at Mixon during the game, and Mixon and Baker Mayfield were telling the fans to get louder.

I know, right?

Seriously, OU has had a succession of boring as shit, increasingly less-competent tall, thick evangelical white or white-adjacent guys running the QB who stepped on campus sounding like they'd already gone through full media training. The only exception being Rhett Bomar, who knew how to party but sucked. And Paul Thompson, who was obviously black. Now we've got this firey as shit, shit-talking sonofabitch who looks too small to be the punter downfield blocking fucking SEC defensive tackles on reverses and running the length of the field to congratulate his running backs in the endzone.

I mean, there was a play in that game when I thought my penis could only get so erect, and then the next series Mayfield pancakes a linebacker or something. And then it got more erect. So pissed that the wipe put the kibosh on my triumphant return to NOLA. I was looking to get thrown in a dumpster again.

AND HE'S COMING BACK NEXT YEAR!!!

I mean, I could spend an hour talking about the guy. My personal fave is the fact that while sitting out a year and not on the team, he spent the semester playing dorm floor intramurals with a bunch of randoms.

I too enjoy Mayfield. Fun player, shades of JFF, including the strong potential he'll completely fuck up his future at some point.
