that was a hilarious read. Although I do agree and disagree with what is being said. I think its a whole lot of fun to degrade people who are different nationalities other than yourself. And I also think its funny when you get degraded by those of different nationalities. If everyone wasnt so sensitive this wouldnt even be a topic of discussion. But its oh so funny to read....

Okay, so Rocker has a big mouth...speaks before he thinks. He's human. By the way, how long ago was that SI interview??? Nobody seems to care that Barry Bonds recently told a guy in the Cubs locker room, "I don't sign [autographs] for white people." There are so many examples of comments like Rocker's being made by other ethnicities, but they are overlooked by people everyday. You all forget that John Rocker was a total badass with a 105 mph fast-ball. Look at his record in the big leagues... Like 90 saves, 350 strike outs. His stats are in the tank right now at Long Island because he just had his fucking rotator cuff rebuilt. It's unfortunate that you people have to further this man's downfall by calling him "washed up" and "has been". After the SI interview, some dipshit woke up and said, "Oh, he's from Georgia! Let's roll with the 'dumb redneck angle!" Now, I ask you, who is offending who? I am from Georgia. I'm college educated, and I'm a consultant with a multi-million dollar engineering firm. I speak my mind about the things that I see in this country every day. People, I am not a dumb redneck. The moral of the story is this... Let the guy live his life without being bashed everyday. That's what you would want for yourselves.
