Why Barkley is Cool and A-Rod Sucks

Charles Barkley says a lot of crazy stuff, but at least the guy speaks with some sincerity. His apology last night on TNT for the DUI arrest should serve as an example to all athletes who screw up in the future.

  • Do not read from a piece of paper
  • Never try to force yourself to cry
  • Don't try to deflect blame by implicating a member of your family

Alex Rodriguez should fire those high priced PR damage control "experts" who helped botch his press conference earlier this week and hire Charles.

This way, he'd come clean and I wouldn't be forced to listen to any more steroid talk on WEEI.

    I can’t believe that TNT confronted this issue head-on and didn’t do typical corporate damage control by sweeping it under the rug and pretending it never happened.
    This doesn’t help Barkley’s plan to become Governor of Alabama though.

    Mikki Moore is awful.
    We need Joe Smith.

  • The guy took responsiblity and said he screwed up. He did not blame anyone else such as his mother, lawyer, shrink, etc. He was honest and truthful. Yes he screwed up but he admitted to it. Just think how much easier if everyone else (athletes) did this. Sure he is not a role model but at least he is honest to afmit to this and the DUI
