Robert Griffin III saw an epic fall out of the good graces of the public in 2013, which Bomani Jones says was inevitable; as Griffin became the villain the world needed after having his road to recovery so overexposed.
Many have called into question why Howard Bryant chose to refer to RGIII as a “racial bridge” Tuesday, in a scathing ESPN.com piece indicting Griffin as being more “commercial than competitor.” Bomani Jones, also with ESPN, says it’s a conversation he’s never been a part of … publicly.
Bomani Jones was “flabbergasted” by Jason Reid’s column on John Wall, in which the Washington Post columnist pointed to Wall’s tattoos as a reason the Wiz shouldn’t sign him to a max contract. At the same time, he doesn’t think Wall should get a max contract.
Bomani Jones calls the issue of minority candidates not being hired in the NFL systemic, and says the only way teams will interview more than one non-white candidate for a coaching vacancy is if you force them to interview more than one non-white candidate.
Bomani Jones give his blunt perspective on Rex Grossman, urging Skins fans to not be fooled.
