    Charles Barkley says.. 'Turn Off Your TV's'

    Charles Barkley tells his haters to turn off TNT during the NBA Playoffs

    Charles Barkley responds to criticism over fat*jokes | SI Wire


    Charles Barkleyís got a message for those who donít like his sense of humor. Here's what the TNT commentator said during Sundayís NBA playoff coverage.


    ďIím just gonna have fun on TV. You know Iím joking Ö some of you people donít like my sense of humor. Hereís what I gotta say. Turn off your damn television. Iím not gonna change. If youíre all waiting for me to apologize, hellís gonna freeze over!Ē

    Did somebody finally stand up to the faux outrage over free speech or is this not comparable?

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Turned off my TV long ago! I had no clue the NBA playoffs were even being played. Charles Barkley is as racist as they come, i dont miss the nba one bit.

    IMO: If you want to do something that matters because you're pissed off at Charles Barkley than take his advice and shut off your TV; it may very well work.

    Anybody who cares what Charles Barkley says needs to look in a mirror and say hello to the biggest moron on the planet.

    I keep saying we need to stop putting these athletes up on such high pedestals. One day, some one will look back and say that Mildsteel was right.

    Leave it to an Alabamian to tell false outrage to go **** itself.

    I don't know whether to call this an implosion compared to how we've played last series and game one of this one, or simply a return to form for the habitural .500 wizards from the majority of the year.
