Colin Cowherd Goes Off The Wall With Rant On Wizards Rookie
Too often these days, we are quick to criticize people and their actions without ever having met that person or learned more about what led to their actions. In a microwave-infused society, the speed of the reaction seems to be more important than the accuracy and/or fairness of the reaction.
Such ill-advised impatience usually results in a greater chance of someone not only saying something stupid, but appearing to have a one-sided, self-serving agenda. The latest example of this trend is ESPN Radio’s Colin Cowherd’s rant on Wizards rookie John Wall doing “The Dougie” during pregame introductions Tuesday night.
Cowherd went off about Wall saying, "Before the game started, he spent 34 seconds doing the Dougie. That tells me all I need to know about J-Wow. Then he opened his mouth later and confirmed it: not a sharp guy. All about him."
Actually, Colin, Wall is anything BUT "all about him".
