Say what now?
The entire sports world came together to mourn the loss of a legend this week. John Madden died unexpectedly on Tuesday morning and everyone was sending their condolences, and sharing their memories of the football legend. Of course there was a very small percentage of people who went the other way.

Now we have this joker.
A history professor had the gall to say the Madden video game helped “to establish plantation cosplay.”
The man in question is history professor at Dallas College. He used Madden’s death to talk some serious nonsense.
“I have lots of opinions on John Madden,” the tweet said. “The creation of the Madden video game was not a great development for the U.S. It further glamorized violence and dehumanized Black athletes, helping to establish plantation cosplay that has grown worse in the era of fantasy football.”
“Obviously video games and fantasy sports are wildly popular and few people like to critically think about how they relate to race, labor, and consumption of a violent and exploitative sport. But I think we need to consider how they’re linked with our actions as fans and to Madden”

Can't wait for your essay on how Super Mario Brothers set back Italian Americans.
We would all be better off if people would just stop with the faux-intellectualism and these laughably insipid word salad essays. https://t.co/CJenVf7yBD

At first I thought maybe this was a parody account. Evidently, it isn’t. https://t.co/f7LSOVZ1Ng

I could make an argument that Madden is one of the most significant Black male bonding exercises of my generation. Spicy take here, but in my opinion in poor taste for myriad reasons. https://t.co/gPCJygZKNi

We live in the same town. Let’s do lunch, Andrew. There’s a thing or two you could learn about the great game of football and Coach Madden’s tremendous contributions. https://t.co/elUtaT5vj5

I’m surprised @espn hasn’t already given this dude his own daily TV show. Andrew just out here ripping off the wokest sports take of 2021. This is so woke I expect Colin Kaepernick to steal this take for his next Netflix doc. https://t.co/avDofohPcB

Some guys love to stir the pot, and this douche is one of them.
