Shannon Sharpe calls out Mike McCarthy for his watermelon stunt
quote:

That didn’t take long. Less than 24-hours after it was announced that Mike McCarthy used watermelons and a sledgehammer to motivate his defense ahead of Sunday’s game against Dalvin Cook and the Minnesota Vikings, McCarthy’s being accused of being racist for using watermelons for his stunt. Shannon Sharpe fired away with the hot take this morning on FS1’s “Undisputed,” saying that the Cowboys head coach.

"You’re white America. Any time you have black people in your presence, watermelon has a negative connotation,” Sharpe said during his opening remarks.

"Let it go,” Sharpe continued. “Things that were acceptable many, many years ago, even though it wasn’t acceptable, it was tolerated, is unacceptable and will not be tolerated. Find another tool, another mechanism to motivate your players.

"Black players: if you need somebody, a white man smashing watermelons to get you motivated, you’re in the wrong line of business. It’s not funny, it’s not cute.

“I don’t know what Mike McCarthy was thinking."

Why should you ever need to motivate a grown arse man being paid millions of dollars? Your motivation should be the younger, faster, and cheaper guy who wants your job.

Who knew Gallagher was a huge racist (and Tony Stark because he zapped a watermelon in Iron Man 2)?

This is the most ridiculous stretch I have ever seen, even from someone as legitimately stupid as Shannon Sharpe.

That show warps their brain. Him and skip are just wired to try to come up with the most insane takes to get interest in the show they lost all touch with reality

The result and shite like this and Skips comments on Daks mental health

There you have it. If a black person is around you're not allowed to possess, display, consume, or otherwise mention a watermelon in any context. The very existence of this fruit is racist.

Should’ve done this instead. I know it would have fired me up, but I’m white.

I guess we’re not allowed to have black friends over for a summer picnic. Seems racist. My family and friends love watermelon.

Damn Sharpe may be right. I imagine all the black players started shedding tears when that watermelon was smashed. McCarthy
