Much criticism has been directed at the Philadelphia Eagles for their alleged smearing of Jackson. Mike Freeman wrote that "DeSean Jackson Is a Jerk, but Philadelphia Eagles Are the True Villains."
Seattle Seahawks Wide Receiver Richard Sherman notes the racial double standard:
"The Seattle Seahawks get it. The Philadelphia Eagles apparently do not. This offseason they re-signed a player who was caught on video screaming, "I will fight every n---a here." He was representing the Philadelphia Eagles when he said it, because, of course, everything we do is reflective of the organization. But what did they do to Riley Cooper, who, if he’s not a racist, at least has "ties" to racist activity? They fined him and sent him to counseling. No suspension necessary for Cooper and no punishment from the NFL, despite its new interest in policing our use of the N-word on the field. Riley instead got a few days off from training camp and a nice contract in the offseason, too."
This post was deleted for the following reason: Seems like the post is saying something other than what specifically happened re: the Eagles' statements? I feel like maybe there's a better way to frame this, and to some extent it needs to not be a "here's a post about a contentious situation, and now here are my specific opinions about that sitaution" thing in the thread in any case, MP. -- cortex
