So he Crip walks after a touchdown, big deal, Serena Williams Crip walked after beating down an opponent on the tennis court. Is she a Crip? Of course not. But girlfriend, like Jackson, is from an area in Los Angles where it is hard to escape gangs and gang culture.
From a strictly football standpoint, this moves sucks. (Darren Sproles? Please!)
From a PR perspective it sucks as well. It has split the fan base right down the middle. Some people want to know why we keep a known racist and even reward him with a new contract , but cut someone with alleged ties to a gang. Others are fine with it. "We don't need bad characters on our team". OK, whatever. This is football. I want players who can ball out and help us plan a celebration on Broad Street, not choir boys.
But this is the NFL these days. It is a league full of double standards and greed.
A team with a derogatory name and an owner who refuses to consider changing it. An owner charged with DUI and jailed, and yet crickets from the league.
One former player, Derrick Ward, posted a twitter rant about the Birds releasing Jackson that is making the rounds.
"These ESPN analyst sound real dumb right now talking about @DeseanJackson10 They think they know what they're talking about but they don't.
@ESPN stop trying to discuss a conversation you know nothing about. U guys are assuming every single thing your talking about right now.
Im sorry but has @DeseanJackson10 ever been arrested? Suspended? DUI? Drugs? No so why are these dumb asses on @espn trying to make him seem
Like he's a horrible person. The NFL is so Contridictive I swear. Especially these punk ESPN Analyst.
and @RonJaworski_BFL shut the F**k up. You sound so dumb right now. and fake ass Teddy Bruschi for someone who use to play in the league
recently you sure are trying your hardest to act like you where Gods gift to football. I know almost everyone of your old teammates hated ubecause you where that one guy that everyone had on there team that goes and snitches to the head coach about other players. Bottom line
I know @DeseanJackson10 very very very well. If the Eagles where so concerned about his "Gang Ties" they wouldnt had drafted him 6 years ago
I'm born and raised in South Central LA. I have uncles who are still gang bangin cousins who still gang bang. But what does that have to do with someone playing football and ballin out for your team? I'm sorry but Every NFL team knows what there players are doing who there hangin
out with. In 6 years has he had 1 single incident? 1 single crime? The NFL is a bunch of BS Im so glad I'm done with that joke of a league
Mark my words there won't be an NFL in the next 20 years watch and see There so worried about who a player knows and a player dunking on the
goal post than actually worry about whats really important. And the funny thing about it Chip Kelly coached@t Oregon which recruited players
From Crenshaw HS. He knows for damn sure who's gang banging and who's not.
A lil bro @DeseanJackson10 keep your head up. Keep doing you don't let any of these fake no talent ass analyst on ESPN deter you from doing
what you do. Keep working hard like you do everyday and when you do get on a squad and play against the sack ass @Eagles burn they ass for
10 catches 150yds 3td's"
As a Birds fan, let me say for the record right now: if DeSean Jackson comes back to haunt us, we will deserve having to watch him Crip walk all over the damn end zone.
