    So are you saying a person should never apologize? Are you saying that a person can't learn from his mistakes or say something, measure the reaction then regret he said what he did? :confused:

    We didn't he talk about the fiancees big hooters or the guy crossing himself all the time like some Papist. Just saying, if you are going to troll, really let it rip.

    yeah show some evidence beyond a BS 'apology' that he realizes he was completely wrong.

    Look at his RECORD

    his statements for YEARS

    just like vick some people think an apology covers everything and nothing more needs to be done

    One of the things that irritated me the most about the situation was how he handled it later on Twitter. If you look at his tweets he was completely childish about the entire situation after it happened.

    https://twitter.com/RobParkerESPN

    Just read through some of his tweets, it's ridiculous.

    He responds to critics saying they are "typical and uneducated", or "urpathetic".

    This nancy apology? Yes, if that is how you want to do it. I don't think an apology is enough. He should lose his job over this. He should apologize and then go prove to himself and his peers that he is changed. Taking a few days off is not going to bring true change for a person and really isnt showing much of anything, except you pray you don't lose your job over and I will say and do w/e you want me to ESPN.

    So no...his apology isnt enough.

    I understand you being confused over his post. You are clearly missing the point all together.

    I just watched a video of Parker's comments to see what all the fuss was about and after watching it I don't see the big deal about his comments at all.Seemed like he was bringing the comments from 'barbershop talk' onto tv and being that the topic was brought up about Rg3's comments he related the barbershop talk to the topic of Rg3's comments. He wasn't personally calling him a cornball from what I saw.

    And no I don't care 'well if a white guy said this' angle. A white person shouldn't even be going where Parker went in the first place. And if he did he's way out of element. I probably have a different opinion than everyone else and I don't really care this is how I feel about watching the video.

    They've built a network around saying controversial things just to bait people into watching, and then still act surprised when one of their "talents" (see troll) steps over the line.

    I don't know why anyone is surprised by anything that is said on ESPN anymore.

    What evidence would be acceptable in this case?

    Losing his job isn't a part of his apology. That would be something his employer decides.

    You also said he should go prove himself? How? How does someone prove themselves to be sorry over an idea?

    He called Robert Griffin III to apologize to him directly?

    So what do you suggest he should do to show himself truly sorry?

    We live in a PC world. And that you just have to watch what you say. As it is about watching what you say and thinking about it. Before you say it without thinking. Unfortunately Parker is paying a huge price over that. And may even pay much more!
