Uh huh.  

Isn't it funny how the coaches who talk the most about "honor and integrity" are usually the worst offenders?

Wow, how incredibly stupid do you have to be to film something like that.   

Unbelievable....but it may show how privileged some...not all, but some football players feel.  He might have actually thought what he was doing was okay, which is probably the most disgusting aspect of this.  And two, thank goodness he IS that stupid, so his behavior can be exposed and punished.

The whole thing is just sickening.

It never fails to shock, sadden, and disgust me at how some "humans" on this earth have so little regard for other human beings.

From the second link:

Vandenburg and the victim are white. The three other players are black. One attorney who has seen all the evidence in the case said the video footage has “a strong racial component” that goes beyond the mere fact of the skin colors of the individuals involved, but would not elaborate on specific details.

"A strong racial component that goes beyond the mere fact of the skin colors of the individuals involved...."

Yeah.  That certainly leaves a lot to the imagination.

"A source close to one of the players thinks coach Franklin urged one of the players to delete the video" I don't care for Franklin and I am not defending him at all but thats not very credible evidence and is poor journalism if you ask me. Now if all or even some of the players come out and publicly say that he did thats one thing and if Franklin did do that he deserves everything he gets including obstruction of justice charges but would be hard to prove,his word against the players.

I guess I don't see how it could be racial without skin color, but WTFDIK
