Clay Travis Calls Out Domonique Foxworth For Josh Allen Comments

“This is a stupid comment for Domonique Foxworth to say. And I don’t believe in cancel culture, but what I do believe in is everybody being held to the same standard regardless of their race, their gender, their ethnicity, where they were born, what job they have. Everybody should be held to the same standard.”

Clay and Dominique

ESPN analyst Domonique Foxworth had an interesting take on the success that Buffalo Bills quarterback, Josh Allen is having this season. Outkick founder Clay Travis caught wind of Foxworth’s comments and to no surprise, emphatically disagreed. 

Travis, 41, is not shying away from driving home that he is strongly opposed to Foxworth’s view on Josh Allen. He states that he is strongly opposed to “cancel culture”.

Foxworth, a former NFL defensive back, made an appearance on The Right Time with Bomani Jones podcast.

“I am fully aware that I have biases. And my biases are not based on Josh Allen. It’s based on the people that are defending Josh Allen. I would be 100 percent lying if I said that when Josh does something dumb, a little part of me doesn’t get happy. And it’s not because I don’t want Josh to succeed,” Foxworth told Bomani Jones.

“It’s not because I don’t want Josh to succeed, it’s because the people who are telling me that Josh is the second coming and Josh is better than everybody are people with American flags and dogs and skull and crossbones. And if you go just take a dip into their tweet history, it’s some really concerning retweets and likes.”

Is Foxworth referring to the avalanche of dialogue that has followed Allen since April 26th, 2018? 

Josh Allen, 24, received an enormous amount of backlash on NFL Draft Day in 2018 when a series ofquestionable tweetsresurfaced just hours before he was selected 7th overall to the Bills. https://twitter.com/AroundTheNFL/status/989594418754678784

Clay Travis took to his platform and delivered his retort to his audience. 

“Imagine if a white ESPN employee had gone on an ESPN podcast and he had said, ‘I root against Lamar Jackson, because of what I see people posting on their avatars on social media.’ He would be fired immediately. This is why people get fired up a lot of times about me because they want me to play favorites. They want me to change the rules for what can be said based on who you sleep with, or what color you are, or who you vote for, all those things. And I hold everybody to the exact same standard,” he exclaimed.

The Fox Sports Radio host, whose reputation for tackling controversial topics head on, did not mince words.

Travis stated, “Now, I don’t believe in cancel culture. But if a white guy says the exact same thing that Domonique Foxworth just said about Josh Allen, and he says it about Lamar Jackson, he’s fired within five minutes from ESPN. This is a stupid comment for Domonique Foxworth to say. And I don’t believe in cancel culture, but what I do believe in is everybody being held to the same standard regardless of their race, their gender, their ethnicity, where they were born, what job they have. Everybody should be held to the same standard.”

John Skipper: Media Has Not Treated Adam Silver Like He’s Teflon

“I don’t think anyone has hesitated to criticize him when he has done things that are controversial or difficult. Certainly, our friends at FOX News have not provided him with a Teflon coating.”

Dan Le Batard hosted an interesting conversation on his Thursday show examining the performance of NBA commissioner Adam Silver during the press conference in which he announced the suspension of Suns owner Robert Sarver. David Samson and John Skipper joined Le Batard in the discussion.

Samson, former president of Major League Baseball’s Miami Marlins, said of Silver “it’s amazing the level of Teflon he’s had, and I don’t know that it’s deserved in any way.” He added that the NBA commissioner’s performance was “not very well workshopped” when addressing the media.

John Skipper, co-founder of Meadowlark Media, acknowledged that the performance was not strong. He said that it was clear that Adam Silver was frustrated by the limitations his job put on what he could do about someone behaving in a way that he did not think was appropriate for the NBA. He did pushback on the idea that Silver had been immune from criticism.

“I’m not sure that I accept that he’s Teflon-like,” Skipper said. “He’s actually made most of the right decisions and done most of the right things and he’s gotten credit for that. I don’t think anyone has hesitated to criticize him when he has done things that are controversial or difficult. Certainly, our friends at FOX News have not provided him with a Teflon coating.”

Samson smiled during the answer, which Skipper addressed by acknowledging that Samson knows that Skipper is friends with Adam Silver. The Meadowlark boss called himself an “apologist” for Silver, but added

“I mostly think he’s done a fabulous job. If you want to hold up what commissioner has done most of the right things in the last seven or eight years, he’s not Teflon-coated, but he has a tremendous track record, which I think deserves our support.”

Chris Long Tells Jim Rome He’s Gambled on Games to Keep Him Interested For His Podcast

Placing bets on NFL games adds a whole other layer to the NFL viewing experience, and Super Bowl champion Chris Long understands that.

Long, who is not that far removed from his playing days in the league, was a guest on The Jim Rome Podcast, and said he initially considered gambling on football as something to compete at after retiring.

But now that he’s had some time to better learn the ins and outs of wagering, he’s become wiser and better informed. It’s helped him when talking about gambling on his own podcast, Green Light with Chris Long.

“I want to be responsible and give out good picks,” Long said. “I don’t want to just throw stuff out there because I’m getting paid by a casino. I’m really interested in the artform of gambling if that makes any sense.”

Long added that having that wagering itch definitely keeps him enthralled in watching football all day like a lot of other NFL fans, even those games people generally think won’t be that good competitively ahead of time.

He said it’s definitely helped with his show.

“I’m not even gonna lie, dude, sometimes you get burned out by football, right? I played it for a long time, now I’m covering it. So you’re like alright I need to do my job tonight, and I’m tired I want to go to bed, but maybe I’ll just throw a couple hundred bucks on the Jaguars,” Long said. “And now I’m invested and I can do my job more effectively because I’m gonna be glued to the TV. So like in a weird way it’s held me a little bit more accountable when it comes to staying on my game.”
