Was on the main board and read these posts regarding Terrell Suggs of the Baltimore Ravens.

I'm white and I'm not trying to accuse people of things but much of the disdain for Suggs on this board seems to have a racial twinge "thug, ebonics"

Are you sure it has nothing to do with Suggs being a loud-mouthed piece of garbage?
I'll start by stating my opinion on this matter. Anyone's ability to speak properly and coherently is open to criticism. Now I can see giving an immigrant who speaks broken english a break, but not someone who has lived in this country their entire life. Does Tyrrell Suggs deserve criticism for the way he speaks? Sure he does.
Do you agree/disagree?
P.S. Let us all pray he doesn't get a gig on the NFL network when he retires!

If he winds up in a role as a talking head, and he is incoherent (the link didn't work for me), it would bother me and he would deserve criticism since it's his job.
I'm not sure he deserves criticism when he's just a player -- I really don't care how athletes speak, just like I don't really care how fast you run the 40 or how many times the guy at my local coffee shop can bench 225 (answer: zero )
Let me ask you this: since you feel he deserves criticism, would you in fact criticize his speaking were you to come across him at some point?
