Why Barkley is Cool and A-Rod Sucks

Charles Barkley says a lot of crazy stuff, but at least the guy speaks with some sincerity. His apology last night on TNT for the DUI arrest should serve as an example to all athletes who screw up in the future.

  • Do not read from a piece of paper
  • Never try to force yourself to cry
  • Don’t try to deflect blame by implicating a member of your family

Alex Rodriguez should fire those high priced PR damage control “experts” who helped botch his press conference earlier this week and hire Charles.

This way, he’d come clean and I wouldn’t be forced to listen to any more steroid talk on WEEI.

  1. A-Rod juices and drives. Also a crime.

  2. His apology came off a lot better than Arods but he namedropped a little too often if u ask me. He almost came off as if he were saying “all these famous people forgive me, so you should too.” But all in all, it felt very genuine and sincere.

  3. I like brian but what was he up too last night.
    I agree the officials stunk but the free throws were 31 to 29 pretty even.
    6 fouls in 11:50 is that a nba record or what probaly is.
    Way to go scal pick up your trophy at the referees office.
    Maybe his heads not right yet.

  4. I can’t believe that TNT confronted this issue head-on and didn’t do typical corporate damage control by sweeping it under the rug and pretending it never happened.

    This doesn’t help Barkley’s plan to become Governor of Alabama though.

  5. JUST HEARD ON ESPN NEWS – MRI WILL BE DONE TOMORROW.

    Damn, I want to know today.

  6. The more I read about Moore I wonder if he will fit in. Reading some opinions that he is a little soft on D

  7. Mikki Moore is awful.

    We need Joe Smith.

  8. According to the boston Globe the Cetlic’s just signed Xavier McDaniel

  9. I want to say I trust the Army (John and Chuck) and my fellow die hard celtics posters 110% – Wait I never understood the 110% thing there’s only 100%

  10. The guy took responsiblity and said he screwed up. He did not blame anyone else such as his mother, lawyer, shrink, etc. He was honest and truthful. Yes he screwed up but he admitted to it. Just think how much easier if everyone else (athletes) did this. Sure he is not a role model but at least he is honest to afmit to this and the DUI
