49ers radio broadcaster gets suspended for Jackson remarks...

Tim Ryan said last Sunday that Lamar Jackson has an advantage in faking handoffs because of his “dark skin with a dark football.”

Is that racist or just the facts. Definitely not PC though...


dang..thats one of them

It doesn’t seem racist to point out that the ball and his skin are a similar color. I could see it being like a “camouflage “ at the mesh point.

In today’s sensitive society it was a dumb thing to say on air. I could see an opposing team mention it to the announcer in preparation for Lamar and maybe he just repeated it.

Its just a fact. Nothing racist about it. Same could be said about uniform color.

Is it racists to say a pitcher can't wear white long sleeves, gloves or anything that could distract a hitter? Asking for a friend!

I was gonna say the same thing but having a pale skinned white guy holding a baseball. Nobody would care about that.


Yes, not racist but unsavvy. You have to know a reference to skin color

is not a good idea.

What will be funny (at least to me) is when he comes back from suspension and is required to give a heartfelt apology for his ignorant comment. “I’m sorry...that I could see...that a football is harder to see against similar colors...I was wrong to see that...”

I got the grand kids a ball for Christmas and I noticed they look darker on tv than in the store. Maybe the NFL does something to new ones to improve the feel or tackiness kind of like MLB does w baseballs

Balls to condition the leather and soften them up. They could be darkened because of something like that.

He said it was true, but that he could have phrased it better. (But he didn't offer a way to properly phrase it to keep from offending the easily offended...)

wouldn't the majority of the players in the league have that "advantage"?


No. Just black QBs executing an RPO - which was the context***

It's 100%. The belief that all members of a race posses characteristics or abilities specific to that race, especially so as to distinguish it as inferior or superior to other races is textbook racism.

He is so good at faking hand offs because he is paired with Mark Ingram and Gus Edwards who rank number 5 and 6 in yards per carry for running backs this year and defenses have to respect that. Then when the defenses bites even a little to try and slow down the rushing attack, Lamar has the lateral quickness to get to the edge quicker than any QB in the league.

Attributing Lamar Jackson's success to his skin color versus the fact that he is paired with an elite line, a stable of efficient backs, and has elite quickness and acceleration is inherently racist. If it was just his jersey and his skin color combined then there would be a statistically significant difference when he wears a white jersey, there isn't. If it was just his skin color then you would see all black quarterbacks having a higher efficient ranking on play action plays, you don't.

Either way it is the wrong type of color commentating he was suppose to be doing.

Furthermore, it goes to the long held indirect racism of anytime black people are great at something, there's some other explanation other than them just being good at it.

A lot of it is because of his speed and agility.

Making the snap decision to pull or give is really what makes his speed so lethal. I think that’s the secret sauce. Doesn’t really have to be about color

A football is a large object to gain invisibility in someone’s hand. More likely: Lamar is good because he’s a freak athlete who has put a lot of work into developing his passing or he’s good because his hands are a similar Pantone to a football? Just an idiotic comment.
