Eagles Wideout Drops the N-Word at Kenny Chesney Concert
The University of Florida is starting to get a tainted reputation.
The school that was known for good players like Tim Tebow and Steve Spurrier isn't winning hearts and minds lately for harboring murderers and racists.
New released video showed that Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper ('who used to be Tim Tebow's roommate,' I'd parrot in my Verne Lundquist voice) uttering a racial slur at a Kenny Chesney concert.
Riley is seen on tape saying: "I'll jump the fence and fight every [N-word] in here, bro."
First of all, Cooper does realize he is at a Kenny Chesney concert, right?
Secondly, he plays in Philadelphia, and this will not go over well with his teammates and, especially, the fans. Eagles fans are not the most forgiving bunch; in fact they can be downright mean (they famously booed Santa Claus, for goodness sakes!), and I'm sure this won't make him a fan favorite anytime soon.
Ohio State coach Urban Meyer just slapped his forehead in disgust because he knows the blowback on this is coming his way. He's thinking "First, Hernandez. Now this? Next thing you know, Tebow will announce he's not a virgin any more!"
Cooper has since taken to Twitter to offer penance.
"I am so ashamed and disgusted with myself. I want to apologize."
He went on to apologize to the team, owner, and community and is willing to deal with the consequences of his actions.
That's good to know, Riley, because my money is on the NFL not being as forgiving.
