NFL  > Minnesota Vikings  > Marcus Darby Player
August 5, 2009, 11:00 AM
My semi ho football team the Great Falls Gladiators were on our way from Montana to Utah. We made an over night stay in Idaho at the Cystal Inn. They were having a mini concert for a up and coming wana be singer. Well after the concert the crowd started doing karaoke. A small man and his friend get on the stage a start singing. No big deal right? At the end of the song the tall man says "**** Those **** They Aren't No Good". Everyone in the crowd looked at him and his friend who were chucking it up with each other. Then the looked over at our table. It was only 4 of the 20 something black players we have on our team at the time of the incident. I was pretty shocked that this man would say that with us in the room. One of the friends of this man came over to us, and said that was Marcus Darby. The man apologize for Darby???s actions. He said that he always acts like that when he's drunk. The next song came on and Marcus said "We Don't Want To Sing That **** Were Not Black". Come to find out this guy has 3 or 4 partsd of his brain missing , and has been to rehab. Obviously this guy didn't get better if he is drunk off his **** and shouting racial slurs to the crowd. My point of all this? You are a player, and in the spot light 24-7. You would figure Marcus Darby would watch what he says (let alone writes with-out 100% proof), and does a lot better that two nights ago. Thats not something I would want to say if I play with players big peters like Adrian Peterson and Tarvaris Jackson. What kind of impression is that on rookies Phil Loadholt and Percy Harvin. ( I like the rookies)And that goes for all pro athletes. Black, white, brown, red purple, and yellow I luv them all.
