I'm black and a retired professional athlete, there is no race issue here. The problem is these guys already had these personality traits, but money takes it to another level. I've seen with my own eyes how that check just gives a boost to the fire. What I don't understand is, if athletes are considered role models, why do we let hockey players fight, and cheer about it? But thats ok? Maybe thats why they don't get in to much trouble outside the rink.

I see most of you guys only listen to commentators, and don't have a clue about the game. Although Mayweather didn't press the fight like he should have, did De La Hoya really fight like a champ pressing forward getting smacked up at will. It was like Mayweather was having a sparring session.

I think if Mayweather would have done what he did from rounds nine on, the fight would have been over early. The flurries put together by De La Hoya when he caught Mayweather on the ropes looked very ineffective most of the time. Sometimes it reminded me of a person thats tired of getting bullied then attacks with his eyes closed swinging, hopeing to connect with anything. You call it chicken shit, but Mayweather hit Oscar at numerous angles, as Oscar wildly charged in. I did expect a little more action though.

the players didn't know he passed until after the game

I have been reading the posts on here about this subject, and being a person that has been playing professional Indoor/Arena football since 1999 there has been a few occasions in my career when the game is stopped because a player is hurt badly and needs medical attention. However the game does continue, I've played in a game when a player broke his neck, and the game continued after he was carted off to the hospital, he did not die though. For me, being a player when something like this happends its emotional, its emotional watching one of your teammates down there hurt like that and it could easily be you. Never seen or heard of a professional game stopped because of something like this, not football.
