ARE YOU KIDDING ME? AM I REALLY ON THIS PLANET?? PEOPLE CASH CHECKS WRITING ARTICLES LIKE THIS?
We’re really reaching for things to be angry about if a song about something sexual is being tied to domestic violence….
My question is how do you miss the mark so BADLY, Paul Kuharsky?
You hear a song with urban overtones and a catchy beat about something getting knocked out, draw a hasty line in pencil to a current buzzy topic that has EVERYBODY up in arms and then chastise a team for playing said music because of questionable lyrics that you didn’t interpret properly?
This 7 paragraph train wreck tells us SO much about the disconnect between the NFL players and the people covering them (at times) that I’m surprised it doesn’t happen more often.
Kuharsky HAS to immerse himself in his work a little more to understand the culture of the people he’s writing about. I’ve never read any other articles written by him but I can only assume he’s been hired by ESPN to cover the Tennessee Titans for a reason. He must know his X’s & O’s, his formations and the dynamics between coaches and players…but he’s completely tone deaf to what affects these players on a personal level.
The Titans didn’t make a mistake in playing that song and shouldn’t have to take the song out of rotation because of concerns over domestic violence. Because domestic violence isn’t glorified here in any way.
It’s one thing to be salty about the actual quality of the song and/or lyrics…which you have every right to be, considering the song’s content. But then finding the tiniest of threads and hitching your wagon to the giant anchor in the water that is domestic violence is both laughable and a crying shame,
Stick to defensive pressure and offensive execution, Paul. Because you’re not doing too hot when you step out of your comfort zone.
