I get what HNB is saying. I agree with a lot of what that Bobby guy said... I feel like he could have gone about it with... more tact.

Maybe too many people have approached the players with "tact"  

Bobby brought the real talk. Its hard to not understand real talk.

I never saw you as an enabler before.But I just figure you're standing up for your team.These kids are no better or entitled than anyone else.It's time for them,no matter what team they play for or what the tint of their skin,to toe the line and earn it or get the hell out of the way so a leader can take the spot.


Me an enabler? I'm not defending what Washington said, but a grown ass man shouldn't engage in that kind of juvenile name-calling with a kid supposedly at least thirty years his junior. There's nothing admirable about getting into a spat with a college kid on facebook.

Just a dumb redneck who doesn't know when to keep his mouth shut.

That's not "real talk." That's message board fodder. That's what "Bobby" was going for.

I liked how bobby wrote a lot of words and spent a whole lotta time writing a response when Cornelius will never read or give a shit about it.


I honestly didn't have too much of a problem with Cornelius' statement until he started going off on the fans. i kinda agree with hobnail on this one

Let me rephrase this, I agreed with the idea that he was trying to convey, however he resorted to name calling with someone considerably younger than him on the internet in public no less. I feel like what Cornelius said didn't warrant THAT severe of a reaction from an alleged "fan".

I went back and read Bobby's rant again.He's spot on as far as I'm concerned.That rant needs to be carved into a Tebow rock somewhere.People are getting sick of this premadonna crap.

I'm not tryng to put you down,but I just agree with the dude.

And this applies to all our players and teams.

Everything he said was exaggerated to the umpteenth degree. There was little "spot on" about it.

People may be sick of primadonna crap, but that hardly justifies just going on a public tirade against a player on YOUR TEAM that basically lumps every player on YOUR TEAM together and calls them all names. It's stupid, it's trashy and it serves no purpose other than to inflate said ranter's own ego and engage in internet grandstanding.

Oh, and the fact that the Red and Black basically did a copy paste and put that crap in print, really hacks me off. The R&B was always a trash publication, but this is sinking to new lows. When you're letting random people's fact-less tirades on facebook be the source of your content, it's time to hang it up. And to think we actually have an outstanding journalism school at UGA. You'd never know it judging from that garbage. Worse than tabloid journalism. And the athletics-hating hipsters at the R&B I'm just just got all giddy and beside themselves when they saw this rant. They couldn't Posted Imageing WAIT to share it with everyone, because they've been stereotyping and generalizing collegiate athletes at UGA for YEARS!

Now you're just making things up...when does he lump the whole team up any more than Cornelius lumped the entire fan base up for being ignorant of their "struggles" as scholarship athletes at UGA?  I'm actually kind of shocked that you aren't championing Nettles given the off-the-field issues that you argue so passionately with the UF fans on the board about....if you have Washington IN PUBLIC defending a guy who had an obviously illegal or about to be used for illegal gun, I would think as a fan yourself you would want that line of thinking gone from your locker room and campus altogether.

Let me get this straight. We're going to be "gifted" with a health care plan we are forced to purchase and will be fined for if we don't, written by a committee whose chairman says he doesn't understand it, passed by a Congress that hasn't read it but exempts itself from it, signed by a president who smokes, with funding administered by a treasury chief who didn't pay his taxes, to be overseen by a surgeon general who is obese and financed by a country that's broke.

What could possibly go wrong?

I'm not going to go through that trash line by line and point out the fallacies contained within. They are numerous and outrageous.

You guys seem to really struggle with grasping the very basic point. So I'll summarize it again. A grown-ass man shouldn't be engaging in a juvenile, verbal spat with a college kid on facebook who for whatever reason, probably because he's only 21, hasn't learned yet to keep some thoughts to himself. A grown-ass man should know better.

The whole thing is a Posted Imageing embarrassment. Washington was stupid for saying what he did and Bobby Nettles is a dumbass redneck with a mouth bigger than his brain. It's drawn more attention to a situation that most of us are ready to move on from.

Bobby Nettles said what a large majority of fans from all different fanbases think every time some shit like this comes up. At least those of us old enough to see past the behavior to the mind-set. Washington's post shows that this is isn't about a behavior he's willing to accept responsibility for and change. He's surly and defiant and assigns blame without any introspection.

As long as people handle him with kid gloves and reinforce his inflated sense of entitlement, he'll continue down the path to destructive stupidity. Somebody needed to say what BN said and I applaud it. If you think it was harsh or stupid, that's probably because you are under 30 and identify with that entitled mentality.

A couple of thoughts.


1. People need to stop pretending stuff like this is new. Every wants to scream and holler than today's players are thugs and troublemakers blah blah blah. They're doing the same things football players did 10, 20, 30, and 50 years ago. The difference is now when one of them says something stupid or does something stupid, the whole world hears about it. Back in the day, many coaches didn't have to worry about their star players being in handcuffs for DUI or smacking around his girlfriend because when they got busted, the cops called the coach to come get them so they could see them playing on Saturday. I don't care if it was the coaching staff arranging for a player's girlfriend to get an abortion at the "U" in the 80's, or the Bear pouring coffee into the still drunk from the night before Namath, this sh*t is not new.

2. To a certain degree, both the player and the "fan" are right. Yes players should realize they are living a dream that we would all kill for, but we also need to look at ourselves an realize we're selfish as hell when it comes to their performance. You think I gave a rat's a$$ about Stephen Garcia's GPA or if he was growing into a good person? HELL NO. All I wanted was for him to be just sober enough to play lights out like he did vs Bama in 2010. At the end of the day, all most of us really care about is what that player can do for our team. And if they flunk out, get hurt, or go to the Pros, it doesn't matter to us and we just move on.

1. You're right. This shit isn't new. But, guess what; nobody would've known how stupid and entitled he was had the moron not felt the need to post it TO THE WORLD. Think Namath would've called a press conference to tell Bama fans, "Posted Image you. You have no idea how hard my life is" ?

2. I care what these players do for my team. And shit like this affects my team, and my university. Do you really think, as a graduate, you won't be associated with the kind of people your school turns out? You've really never followed the careers of pros from your school, and celebrated their successes? Or lamented a lost season because of injury or ineligibility? C'mon, man. We give more of a shit BECAUSE they play football. It's one of the perks of being a big-time college athlete.
Think people in Auburn didn't feel pride when Bo Jackson was becoming one of the greatest two-sport athletes of our time, and horror and sympathy when injury ended his career?

The fact that some of these young men have this mentality that fans of their programs should just shut up and be thankful that they chose to grace a certain university with their presence regardless of the negative light cast on said university by their idiotic and illegal actions is ludicrous. And defending this mind-set will only perpetuate it.

I do feel bad for Crowell though... if he'd signed with Bama, he coulda have a National Championship ring to sell after he got kicked off the team.
