I'm not one to care much for redemption. It's never suited me to draw ire from those that may have slighted me. I doubt it's being mature on my behalf, moreover just don't really care to get involved. However, after watching last nights comeback come to a screeching end because FSW blew the coverage somehow I couldn't help but to think of one person -- Ralph Lawler.
Ralph and Mike were suspended for a game -- and it could have been 3 if (supposedly) DTS hadn't stepped in -- for their comments that offended a fan. I understand that and, being a person of color, I can see where they were going with it. Nevertheless, a fan was offended. And what was the biggest win of the year thus far we had the choice of the one-sided ESPN coverage or the duality of Michael Eves, someone that also covers the Lakers. Again, because someone was slighted we had our most valuable asset taken from us.
Back to last night and the whole redemption bit. I can't help but to put the two incidents together and wonder, shouldn't FOX be held responsible in some way? The irony that FOX is standing up people of Iranian descent is especially peculiar, but that's not a comment for this site. Anyways, why is that Ralph laughs at one comment made by Mike Smith and he's suspended while FOX makes us miss practically the entire 4th quarter and we have to sit back and take it? Call it my yearning desire to take down corporate America but something should be said. If FOX prides itself on accountability why is it that there's none on their end for last nights debacle?
So, Clips Nation, any suggestions on "sticking it to the man"?
