"Pittsburgh Steelers: Rashard Mendenhall Says NFL 'Parallels' Slavery - now I know what he was talking about.

Richardson = Slave owner in Medenhall's eyes?

so mendenhall and AP both parallel the NFL to slavery.  great.

First thought was how dare he. But you cant even work at amscot with visible tattoos. If a guy is going to pay you millions then hey...


You can ban tattos if you apply a policy equally to every employee. If Richardson doesnt want one player to have tats, he would need to ban it for every other player as well. You can't single someone (or a group of people) out.

It's a pretty condescending remark by the "owner" - there are other ways to enforce a dress code (or whatever code tatoo falls under).

The entire issue is somehwat mundane, but what comment (by Richardson) was condescending?

I'm a young african american male and if the owner of the team that I played for said this to me, I would be insulted. I might even go out and get one on my neck that says **CENSORED** richardson.

reading these post I'm beginning to wonder if any of you understand the business of the nfl? The Owners have a business, the atheletes are a business, and they come together to provide a service for consumers.

Case in point Newton. If his response to Richardson was a big "up yours" with a verbal attack to follow, Richardson would either apologize or Newton would be starting qb for the Dolphins.
