Not that he asked for it or needed it, but Eagles Supreme Leader Chip Kelly got a big endorsement of his denial of ex-Eagle Shady McCoy’s accusations of racism.
Fox Sports Jay Glazer, who covers the NFL like a glove, said this on Thursday night:
“I’m sorry man but you just don’t flippantly accuse people of this. I think it’s complete bullshit and irresponsible as hell to bring into the equation. When you accuse someone, that label stays with you regardless of truth. Wrong for [McCoy] to go there, don’t bring it into the equation. Didn’t they replace McCoy with DeMarco Murray? I’ve known and trained with Murray since college and I’m pretty sure, actually I’m positive, he’s black. Lecture over. Unless you’re sure about something like that don’t publicly label someone as it. You’re guilty no matter what and it’s wrong.
“It’s just sports, don’t bring other shit in when it’s not facts.
