    I’m a mixed male so maybe I have no place to say this, but I didn’t find what he said offensive. Sorry Lamar has darker skin? He wasn’t insulting the man.

    As a former collegiate and pro ball player, I find the statement ridiculous. For people here who believe it's a true comment, its ridiculous. To think that defenders are actually fooled due to the color of a players skin speaks to the commentators situational ignorance. For those who believe its true, if not racism, then at the very least, it shows your lack of knowledge of the game.

      This isn't even close to factual. If skin and uniform color hid the ball then Cleveland wouldn't have sucked for the last 50 years

    What a load of crap. It’s getting to a point where you can’t say anything about anybody due to the fact that somebody is always offended by something somewhere somehow. Frankly, I’m offended by everybody being offended.

    The more i think of it? Its a bit suspect. I know what he was trying to say but it came off funky especially the more you think about it.
    Im black and i dont like jumping to conclusions. Initially i didnt think it was that bad. But it is a bit sus... But i know he didnt mean no ill behind it.

    Gotta be careful what you say; if it is even to cross the mind as even marginally inappropriate, then it should NOT be said under any circumstances.

    It always amazes me when I hear comments like this because in today's social media frenzy and potential back lash of virtually everything you say, why would you even go down this road? You know what the consequences are going to be. He was fortunate that he only got suspended and not fired, which will almost always happen. Just not very bright on his part.

    STOP! Please just stop. First the Hockey announcer with the immigrants, now this guy. Man, it’s like Jimmy the Greek all over again just not as in depth. 😂
    These people (not all white people btw) either want a race war or want to be Martyrs. Either way, CHIIILLLL! You’re 1st amendment right doesn’t mean you can’t get fired or your ass kicked lol.

    C'mon with this victim bullshit. What Black person is honestly offended by this? Better question...are you offended or is someone trying to tell you that you SHOULD be offended? C'mon man, the football is brown and his arm is brown. Is it the exact same complexion? No, but it's close enough if you have to make that decision in a fraction of a second during a football game real time. He made a very fair point. Nothing to see here folks...move along with that woe is me bullshit

    It's amazing that so many things are about race these days. I don't know Ryan personally so I choose to defer to what Richard Sherman says about him since he does know him. One thing that is interesting is that just a few weeks ago Russell Wilson was in town playing the 49ers and that announcer didn't say anything about it being hard to see the football with him playing!

    Yet another wake-up call, to show you how Esau operates. Come out from among them.
    Look at that $hit-eating grin that he has on his face 0:26-28.
    Ecclesiasticus 12:10-12
    [10]Never trust thine enemy: for like as iron rusteth, so is his wickedness.
    [11]Though he humble himself, and go crouching, yet take good heed and beware of him, and thou shalt be unto him as if thou hadst wiped a lookingglass, and thou shalt know that his rust hath not been altogether wiped away.
    [12]Set him not by thee, lest, when he hath overthrown thee, he stand up in thy place; neither let him sit at thy right hand, lest he seek to take thy seat, and thou at the last remember my wods, and be pricked therewith.

    This is the dumbest thing ever. his skin color is the same as the football and it’s hard to see the football, how is that racist to say ? That’s like someone telling me David you have brown skin... oh I do, well you’re racist for saying that. Do you realize how dumb and un educated that sounds? It’s ridiculous how sensitive people are and how you can’t comment on anything about anyone or you’re going to offend them. I guess zebras don’t have stripes and their not black and white, oops I’m racist now because I said there not black and white. It’s amazing how we will end up not identifying anything as anything. Y’all can have that, I’m going to stay over here. Lol

      I'm a person of color......at no point was this commentator being racist.. to be "Racist" he has to believe he his superior than the other...... all he was trying to say is the ball was hard to distinguish due to his color of skin.... He definitely shud of chosen better words but No harm no foul... Now, that's not to take away LJackson Game... This guy is an MVP... Have a Good Day Bless...
