I love it when folks get try to ASSUME whether adding an "a" is less offensive than "er". The intention is still there. You don't get to dictate what is/isn't offensive to others.
HELL YEA N*****!!!!!!!!

I think the southern accent makes it worse. People just assume its racist no matter what or who the comment was made to. N + er in southern accent = no job for white dude. Ive heard n**** at least 200 times on micd up nfl. What happened to those players?
Was he the drunk redneck, wearing a tank top, saying racist things at a Kenny Chesney concert?

Wait, I just described every single fan at that concert.
rather have TO than Cooper, TBH.

that's racist.
Would this guy even be on our radar if he was a FA? No!

But now that he makes a fool of himself he suddenly would be?

Sorry but being around a lot of black people who are good friends it's true. They'd prefer you said that. ER is a complete disprespect where the A is an obsolete. Yes neither are apropriate. I bet yo took a pool and the majority would hold true to that conparrison.

Either way after Williams and Mannigham (who is glass) there is a huge drop off

Yeah he's really not any good and never has been, so I'm not sure why we'd be interested. We have enough middling wrs.

Lol

this.

are you freaking kidding me? people need to get over the TO thing. it ain't gonna happen. EVER!
This !!!!
No, no , no , no and NO!!!!!!!! Never heard of this guy until I saw the video on YouTube. Like seriously what has he done productively in an nfl game?
Don't want
If he can play well and make the team better then I say sign him. These are professional football players. They should be able to have people in the locker room that they don't necessarily like. If he does not engage in antics to distract from the team winning games, then there is no reason not to sign him.

Unfortunately, most Amerikans (sic) are IMO immature and unwilling to work with anyone who offends them. I am Jewish and I have been called a "kike", which is an insulting term. What do I do? I ignore it and do not personally associate with those who use such terms. But if someone called me that in the workplace. I would not seek to have him fired; that is ridiculous. People need to learn to deal with offensive language. Only children are unable to do that.

On the other hand, if the good he brings to the team is outweighed by the bad he brings to the team, then forget him.
Just not worth it. The harmony in the clubhouse far outweighs the production a marginal player can deliver.

Lol your few Black friends don't speak for all Black people (myself being one of them)....
White people aren't allowed to say it in public, without facing consequences. Period. ER or A, it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter how many rap songs you listen to. It doesn't matter how many times you hear Black people use it amongst themselves. If white people don't like it, they should've never started using it as a racial slur in the first place. I actually think Riley Cooper is a decent WR but the amount of negativity he will carry with him (deservedly or not) is why I think the 49ers should stay away from him.
