Seems to believe he was being punished. Can't tell if he's taking it in stride or being sarcastic.

I just can't keep ignoring this type of bullshit on these boards.

First off, have some white people not been harshly criticized for culture and traditions that offend others? That certainly and justifiably goes both ways. Tear down the statues and stand for the national anthem - I think they're all fucking stupid snowflakes.

Second justifiable criticism and racism are not mutually exclusive...but neither is criticism automatically racist.

Third, what are these "unrealistic standards" you're referring to? Bell is paid 150% more than the next highest paid RB. While much racism is ignored or denied, much racism is also imagined. Seems kind of moronic, IMO, to suggest that fans of a league that has been, for years, less than 20% white are looking to put black athletes in their place.

If anyone thinks the Bell criticism is about race they are fucking morons. Are there racists, sure, but this asshole held out for 15mm and left his team. Fuck him, my family owns 5 Bell jerseys between us, and they will never be worn again.

That's good stuff from deangelo. 5 wides is the punishment package.

Great. He is a great player. I just don't agree with how he handled the situation so won't be sporting his jersey anymore. But understand why people wear the jersey.

Bell sucked out loud today. Maybe his worst game as a steeler, if it wasn't the ACCCG.

I honestly missed this. Interested to see how many 5-wide and 4-wide/TE packages we ran. I assumed the decision not to activate Hunter meant no 5-wide. But maybe they're content to trot out DHB 2-3 times there for being such a ST "superstar".

They traded Coates for an R6 pick - if Hunter isn't good enough for 4/5 wide or doesn't concern defenses, then that trade was stupid. Period.
