    Next Tuesday, January 21 at 9 pm ET, the NFL Network has "A Football Life" episode on the late Redskin receiver, Jerry Smith.

    The theme of the show (from the promo) appears to be Smith's homosexuality and how he kept it hidden. Smith is shown to be a very good football player.

    The 1969 Redskins (Lombardi's last season) had three homosexuals in training camp, two on the season roster, Smith and Dave Kopay, who wrote a much-praised book years later.

    In his book, Kopay referred to Jerry Smith without giving his name. Kopay wrote that Smith once came on to a young (white) player who was horrified and fought Smith off.

    Smith was frightened by the incident, according to Kopay.

    I dvr'd this program, but haven't watched it yet. I am astounded that they would devote an episode to one of the most underappreciated white players of all time, when almost every show is about a black player.

    I figured that the primary focus of the program would be on Smith's gayness. Hopefully they at least flash his statistics, and promote the idea he should be in the Hall of Fame.

    You are correct, although over 90% of the program is "on Smith's gayness." They do boost Smith for the HOF and mention his 60 TD receptions.

    I have only seen clips of the film on Youtube but what I have found interesting is that the Redskins had a known homosexual on the team in Black fullback Ray Macdonald and Lombardi because of his gay brother wouldn't allow gay jokes about Macdonald.

    I actually enjoyed this one despite the homosexual angle. Jerry Smith didn't seem like the type to shove his homosexuality down peoples throats. He was pretty private about his life outside of football and seemed like a decent person. Compare that to the homosexuals of today who won't shut up until you accept their behavior as normal, whether anyone likes it or not.

    Obviously this crap is a propaganda piece. It doesnt have any reason to be on castefootball. Did that troll start this thread too?

    Ahh yes the guy who has praised black athletes over and over.

    The guy who exists on this site to torment bigunreal, and give us the heads up on the latest documentaries about black athletes. As if real men would watch that crap.

    The guy who stuck up for several former trolls in the past.

    The guy who told that clown whitecornerback that he was "making great points", and that most here at caste football are "inclined to wishful thinking".

    The guy who contributes absolutely zero intellect to the site.

    Yes I should have known it was you. The longest lasting troll on cf

    To have seen as many sporting events as you claim to have seen you must be at least 100 years old, so Im surprised your still immature enough to call names.

    I hope you send Don a large money donation regularly, because 95% your posts (this thread for example) are either meaningless, or pro black/anti white. Therefore the least you can do is help foot the bill.

    What started off as a tongue-in-cheek thread is now devolving into a flame war between veteran posters. :flame: Very sad.

    This never was a tongue in cheek thread. It was an immature stab at bigunreal (which Im sure hes use to by now).

    Technically a flame war would be more than one person calling names. If one person makes valid points, and the other person calls names, thats not a flame war.

    This dumb as a sack of hammers poster can't even use proper English.

    For what it's worth, I was telling Bigunreal the NFL Network was doing a special on one of his favorite players.

    Again with the childish name calling. Your not NEARLY as intelligent as you think you are.

    Your very presence on this site discredits it, and turns people away from signing up. I know this for a fact. I tell EVERYBODY I know about Castefootball, but many see your posts, and the fact that moderators always defend you, and that makes them lose trust in the website.

    I agree, WesWoodhead. Sportshistorian used to post in the boxing thread and prop up black "legends" such as Ali and Holmes. After he was thoroughly embarrassed by several regular boxing posters he stopped posting there. If he isn't bashing bigunreal he is creating numerous threads for black athletes. And what the hell for? I'll never know, but he certainly is a "special" one on this site who is protected no matter what.

    FYI Jerry Smith was white. I suppose a dim bulb like yourself wasn't aware of this fact.

    Those whose perspective is literally black and white with no shades or subtlety allowed, will not enjoy Sport Historian's posts as he is not always kneejerk "all white athletes are great, all black athletes are bad."

    Younger posters could learn a lot from his knowledge, but some would rather bash him as a "troll." If you read his posts carefully, he is clearly pro-white athletes, but he does have a different opinion on certain white and black athletes than the consensus here. That's not a bad thing; I respect his knowledge and opinions even if I don't always agree with what he writes.

    Here's an idea -- instead of instigating flame wars, just ignore Sport Historian's posts if you don't like them. He has a lot to offer; apparently certain posters are so all-knowing that they have no need to entertain a contrary viewpoint, but understand that some of us are interested in what Sport Historian has to say.

    I knew that brightboy! However, you have created dozens of threads of your favorite black athletes before. Wasn't it you who said that some of the old black heavyweights would easily beat Klitschko? You sure are one pro-white man! Teach us, old wise man!
