NFL  > General NFL  > Racist NFL player from the Minnesota Vikings, Jared Allen
June 7, 2009, 09:04 PM
My semi pro 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 singer. Well after the concert the crowd started doing karaoke. A tall 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 Jared Allen. The man apologize for Allen's actions. He said that he always acts like that when he's drunk. The next song came on and Jared Allen said "We Don't Want To Sing That **** Were Not Black". Come to find out this guy has 3 or 4 DUI's , 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 an NFL player, and in the spot light 24-7. You would figure JARED ALLEN would watch what he says, and does a lot better that two nights ago. Thats not something I would want to say if I play with players like Adrian Peterson and Tarvaris Jackson. What kind of impression is that on rookies Phil loadholt and Percy Harvin. And that goes for all pro athletes. Black, white, brown, red purple, and yellow.
