    This is silly. He’s closer to COTY than to getting fired. He’s just getting started and last year was a wash.

    Come on, man. You’re normally a sensible poster, but there’s no way to spin that as anything other than derogatory. By your standard, one could call Mike Tomlin “Black Mike” and that’s perfectly acceptable because it’s a “fact.”

    No, there’s not. But let’s not pretend what the almost universal intent of using that moniker would be. Or maybe more correctly, what the perception is of using that moniker. Perception is quite often way more important than fact.

    But I never called him fat mike, that’s not apples to apples.

    he’s grossly obese, and no one is pretending he’s not

    You didn’t. But the post you replied to was taking umbrage with another poster that did. You essentially were defending the initial poster by pointing out it was a “fact.” That someone has to qualify calling McCarthy Fat Mike instead of Coach McCarthy cannot be construed as anything but a derogatory statement. And posting herein referring to him as “morbidly obese Mike” instead of Coach Mike, although factual and somewhat less offensive, still shades towards the unnecessary.

    Again, I didn't call him "Morbidly Obese Mike." I said he was morbidly obese.. you're manipulating it into namecalling as opposed to adjectional acknowledgement. Sometimes I am clandestine. I wouldn't have any problem with someone referencing that I am clandestine, but to then refer to me as "Clandestine Aero" is presenting it as part of my name, i.e. namecalling.

    But as for the original post I was talking about, If he had worded it "i want his fat butt canned" instead of his "fatness" would you have been as upset?

    You probably still have a closet full of zingers you want to unload.

    To me Garrett was here probably 3 years longer than he should've...but I also understand 2016 probably bought him more time than it should've.....but had he been fired midseason over 2019 it wouldn't have shocked me and I wouldn't have been upset.

    I believe that you believe that.

    Pretty sure the rest of the league sees MM as JG: an outdated coach in a sea of innovative young minds.

    If it's another embarrassing season, yeah, he'll be fired. I'm pumped about this year, yeah, but let's not forget the dozens of totally inexcusable dumb decisions last year in addition to all the injuries.

    You're playing with words but not fooling anybody. "His fatness" is clearly derogatory name calling which is not OK.
    He doesn't like the guy so he's using schoolyard name calling, and you're defending it.

    Sea of young kinds huh? You mean like Belicheck, Reid, and Arians? The last three SB HC’s? Not one under 60 years old.

    Dumb article. He's only coached the team for one season, and we have no idea how well he'll do in the second and probable subsequent seasons.

    I gave MM the benefit of the doubt when he was hired, but I thought that he had the ability to prove he was better than Garrett. His in in-game decisions was worse than Garrett and those decisions supported the claims that Rodgers about about MM having a very low football IQ.

    I'm so down on McCarthy right now.....I'd honestly take Garrett back. Wouldn't shock me if Jerry is thinking the same. @ least you knew what you were getting w/ Garrett. With an off season to come up w/ new ways to fail....I can't even imagine the buffoonery I'm going to get in 2021. :rolleyes:
