Radio host Tom Joyner had a lot to say Monday morning about the Washington Redskins coach, Mike Shanahan, comparing him to slave master Calvin Candie (played by Leonardo Dicaprio) in the movie Django: Unchained.
Joyner believed that RGIII should have never played in the wildcard game on Sunday, and that ulitmately Shanahan should be responsible for his injury.
Tom Joyner: I’m just gonna say it, I think Mike Shanahan — the coach of the Washington Redskins — could be compared to the character that DiCaprio plays in Django.
J. Anthony Brown: You’re absolutely right; keep fighting, Negroes.
Tom Joyner: Keep fighting, keep fighting. RGIII had no business playing.
J. Anthony Brown: At all.
Tom Joyner: The team’s doctor says that he was not cleared to play. Mike Shanahan put him in there anyway. If you saw the movie, just like DiCaprio had the Mandingos fighting in the room. That’s what he did. That’s what he did to RGIII.
J. Anthony Brown: Kirk Cousins did a good job when he came in there man, he really did.
Sybil Wilkes: Now, did RGIII play any part in that, in saying he was good to go?
Tom Joyner: He probably did.
Sybil Wilkes: So, there’s culpability on both sides?
