  • Guilt by association, Gang style dress is associated with drugs, thuggery, bravado, the media promote it, the Gangs relie on it for image and establishing their reputations.

    Hip Hop and Rap artists murdered all that is associated with dress and yes Tatoos. He has chosen the tough act image and it's associations. He will garner that reputation if he continues that as his marketing and image.

    Not everyone is aware or understand how all that interacts, it's what is promoted and how it's presented in the media and advertising. He could be a really great guy and wholesome and everything, but it's the image he gives to the public that he will be judged by when off the field.

    If you think prejudice and Racism as well as gay exceptence and religious acceptence is here becasue it's not the 50 and or 60's then you need to wake up from the ideology you have. It may not be displayed like it was in those days, and you may have groups trying to get rid of names like the Redskins. But in the PC world people have learned to curb their private opinions outwardly except to their inner circles. It's still here, in the closet more these days. But here and working towards being less prevelant in main stream society.

    Someday, yes I hope we can get past the petty differences and focus on real issues instead of playing in to the hands of dessent by keeping everyone at everyone else's throat over this type of thing. As long as were seperated by this stuff, we are never truly working towards the greater well being of us all.

    I don't speak for everybody here but I have seen many people call him a thug. He behaves like and is a douche though. That seems to be the prevailing sentiment on him here and elsewhere.

    Swing and a miss. People have always been judged by their demeanor, manner of speaking, etc. The reason you don't go into a job interview tatted up and talking mumbledy-mouthed like a teenage wannabe rapper (how Kaep talks) is because in many situations, when folks don't have a complete history of your actions to judge you by, making a good impression is important.

    You're trying to conflate that with racism which is a blind hatred of someone no matter what their actions or demeanor. It's not even close. Kaep speaks and acts immaturely in some situations, so he's judged as immature. It may be an unfair judgment, but he has a hand in this.

    I personally think Wilson is preternaturally mature for a kid not yet 30. I don't really think much less of Kaep for not being quite as polished. I sure as hell wasn't as polished or mature as Wilson at his age. Kaep is a bit on the insecure end of the spectrum (selfies, swag, speech, rude to media, refusal to give other teams credit) but that doesn't have much to do with quarterbacking and doesn't even mean he's a bad person. He's a kid.

    On gameday yeah I hate his douchey butt, but that just being a fan. Niners fans must vomit every time Sherman is on screen.

    He's still happy go lucky and you can see that in the locker room vids, he's just not happy go lucky with the media. What happened you ask? The media criticized him for not speaking to his birth mother and his tattoos. Because of this, his media responses are now short with no emotion behind them whatsoever. Then the most ignorant of fans see that and call him a douche so that they can feel better about players on their team. That's about it.

  • It really is childish how you guys hate a guy personally for faulty reasons. I didn't realize Seattle was filled with a bunch of conservative old white men that view anyone with tattoos and a backward hat as a thug. I guess 90% of the players in the NFL are thugs.

    You want to call someone on the 49ers a thug? Call Aldon Smith a thug for hanging around a bad crowd and getting a few DUIs.

    But go on and find some way to convince yourself that your hatred for this kid is well warranted. This is exactly why Seattle is the only fan-base in the NFL that I have no respect for. I can at least have a rational football conversation with a Rams fan or Cardinals fan while keeping what I consider a healthy rivalry.

    Oh and by the way, if there is one team with character issues looming you don't need to look much farther than your own city.

    Sure, because it's everyone's job to research the reason why he presents a douchey persona to the media, our main form of access to players.

    He was glorified endlessly in the offseason by the media, and pretty much during his run last year (Kaep, Russell, and RGIII all had a ton of positive press). What is with Kaep and focusing on the negative amidst a sea of positive? That's why I laugh about the headphones commercial, Kaep is a guy who definitely needs something to help him tune out the negative because he seems to have paper-thin skin.

    I don't necessarily blame him, again just a little immaturity which isn't outlandish in a league of under 30 year olds, and he plays well on the field even on the road, so I'm not going to draw some wishful connection between his handling of media (both social and mainstream) and his play. But he really struggles with the media concept if that's your explanation for why he's turned on all media. All athletes remember slights against them by the media and hold grudges. Most athletes don't focus their butthurt at all media afterwards, for one because they can get over it and for two because it makes you look whiny-poo if you let it affect you so greatly.

    It surprises me that he acts that way and I think he'll grow out of it over time. His play on the field suggests that he IS capable of tuning out what he needs to tune out.

    Calling him a thug is going a bit far, but he does act like a wannabe thug and Niner fans need to realize the burden is not on the rest of the world to look past the tats, speech patterns, running off the field, and not talking to the media. The guy himself is responsible for his image, it's not on everyone else to get him on the couch and find the trusting little boy inside. Good grief.

    Explain to me how 11 posts means I am automatically a liar? Ask Radish, I was one of the heavy posters on here from about 2000 through 2007 . . . which is not coincidentally when I began pursuing my degree in optometry, hence me not having any more time to dork around on a forum, as much as I love doing it. I graduate in 3 months and the classload has lessened greatly, thus I'm back.


    Since you have been gone I will say this, insider knowledge or a source close to the situation has become a touchy subject since someone stated they had inside sources concerning one Carson Palmer deal. They now are not posted or need to have the source verified as valid if one makes that statement.

    Secondly assumption is said to make an ass out of you and me.

    This forum has moved and had to be reset multiple times assuming that a post count dictates experience here is something we all may fall into.


    Fair enough. FTR, I stand by my account of Kaep's behavior. People can believe what they want, but hopefully won't discount it completely due to its anecdotal nature....

    The napkin was for Ray Rhodes wasn't it? I wish so badly I had that JPG saved somewhere on my hard drive. If anyone was wise enough to save that, please please pass it along. That was the funniest thing I've read on a forum.

To me that's class, that's respect, that's profressionalism, that's sportmanship, not mocking the other QB after you score a TD or spiking the ball at a defenders head. I ask because he has not done this yet to my knowledge.

    I like the guys talent, work ethic, fire, love how he doesn't back down from anyone out there, heck i don't even mind the shortness with the media, but this other childish crap he does from time to time is what turns me off about the dude which makes it hard for me to respect him as a player...


    I can't answer that. We'll see.

    What I can say is that his behavior after the game had nothing to do with his desire to disrespect. It was because he thought he'd let his team down. Even his comments that get soooooo much play over here when he says "it was something I was doing, not something they did" which you guys read as disrespect is more about him taking ownership for the loss. He takes it SOOOOO personally.

    The part about shaking hands tho....Lynch ran off the field right after the game last week. Didn't shake any hands. So? Was THAT disrespect? Its a player preogotive to do so. Boldin and WHitner were ahead of Kap on his way to the locker room.

    You can say classless all you want. I'd rather he stayed just so I didn't have to have these conversations, but there is WAY, WAY to much attention paid to this stuff. Its all BS.


    Just for the record, wanted to point out that Kaep did in fact greet Wilson midfield after the game.

    I think you're right if the roles were reversed it'd be the same thing, but it'd still be ignorance.


    I think that if Wilson played for SF, some Seattle fans would bash Wilson's openness about his religion, to be honest. He gets away with that in Seattle because he's ours.

    Whenever people say Kaepernick dresses like a "thug," I just remember that "thug" is a new code word for n----- [would type it but don't want to get modded]. Lots of black people dress that way, but since it originated with black folks, it's thuggish. In the '50s, it was rock'n'roll being "from the devil" or what have you. If it's black-affiliated, there's a code word or term that racists use to be able to criticize without being called out.

  • Marshawn Lynch must be the biggest thug in the world then.

    My point is you can never judge someone by their appearance. It's all fun and games in the context of rival smack-talk, when it becomes more than that (racial statements, not accusing anyone of that...just an example I've seen being brought up) it becomes an issue.

    I use Shawn as an example because of his personal style seems to be the same thing that everyone hates on, but they don't even acknowledge it. You can't seriously judge someone by looking at them, you have to get to know the person. Lynch may look like he doesn't care about anything in the world or the kind of dude you don't want to meet in a dark alley, but the fact of the matter is he might be one of the most down to earth, honest, human beings on the planet.

    I don't watch SC player interviews, so I have no idea what their like outside of the coverage they get on a national platform and/or on Dot Net. I don't like Colon because of his appearance. If anything he's an ass (He could be a good dude, but I think some of his off season stuff is getting polish by his PR team now that he's the face of a franchise), but that's not what this is about. That said, there's no way he's different than anyone in Seattle's locker room in terms of dress or giving off the perception that they're tough guys that had to bust their ass to keep away from choosing a negative path in life.

    This comes in more forms that just the "urban kid" that made it big, go look at the ESPN "touching life stories" or whatever the hell you want to call it. People come back from injuries in high school, college kids have to hop around from school to school because of different problems, etc. It all depends on the story a person tells, the persona they give off, and more importantly how media outlets try and spin it.

    Yeah, that's where I start getting really touchy too. I mean, 99/100 I don't think people who say it are doing so with active racial animus in their hearts, but we also know what it means and what it's a code word for.

    When people say Kap is "immature" my response is "yeah, that's true." Doubling down on the Dolphins hat thing is immature. Retweeting his "haters" is immature. "Immature" is a code word for emotionally young, and still with some growing to do, and I think those things are absolutely true of Kap. It's the thug thing where I draw the line.

    TBH, the same thing happens with the 9ers fanbase, which I've skated around on three or four occasions here. We all know the 9ers fanbase is significantly less white than the Hawks fanbase, so when Hawks fans say 9ers fans are "all thugs" I get pretty edgy for the same reason. When some Hawks fans incessantly talk about 9ers fans stabbing other fans (because two years ago a gangmember stabbed another gangmember near Candlestick over something that had nothing to do with football) because 9ers fans are "all thugs" I get super touchy. 9ers fans are all "bandwagoners", all "whiners", all whatever doesn't bother me, it's just the coded thug thing that chaps my hide a lot, and makes everything suddenly less fun. ;)

    FWIW I've never heard a 9ers fan bag on Wilson about his faith. They just call him a midget and a boring robot. They don't do the "thug" thing b/c there are tons of young black men across the bay area who look and sound and talk like Lynch or Kap or whoever. Some of 'em are struggling or selling drugs. Some of 'em are lawyers. Some of 'em work for non-profit social justice organizations and some of 'em work in tech and media. There are a lot of really nice kids and smart kids in the Bay Area who some people would see from across the street and label as "thugs."

  • Just for the record, wanted to point out that Kaep did in fact greet Wilson midfield after the game.


    He did Marv and I was very happy to see it.. there's hope for that young man yet... ;)

    I know a lot of the guys are down on Kap after the way this game went in the 4th quarter, but man that dudes a warrior, and what an athlete, that TD throw to Boldin in mid air blew me away. I think another year under his belt that dude will be a the real deal..

    Congrats on a great team and great season.

    Kaep always looks like a kid where the other qbs look like grown men.

  • When I see those QBs in post-game attire, I think (fairly or not), three lawyers and Vanilla Ice.

  • After seeing Turning Point and hearing Kaep congratulate Russell and tell him to "Go get yourself a ring" I have a new found respect for the young man.

    He's a hell of a player, and if he learns to go through his reads, he will be near impossible to stop.

    Pretty simple, wear any type of urban clothing and listen to hip hop = thug

    Doesn't matter if you have a criminal record or not, if you do any of these things or both, by god you're a thug.

    Zeb is a huge thug.
