Anquan Boldin is a Jackass

Posted on: January 18, 2009 9:04 pm

He tried to ruin the Super Bowl celebration with his childishness.

In the game, Boldin got into a heated argument with offensive coordinator Todd Haley. After the game, instead of celebrating with his team, Boldin abruptly left the field, then abruptly left the locker room.

It was awful behavior.

Quarterback Kurt Warner also got into an argument with Haley during the game but you didn't see Warner acting like a petulant child afterwards. He celebrated with his teammates and enjoyed the moment.

I have to say in nearly 20 years of doing this, I've never seen a player more concerned about his arguing with a coach over making a Super Bowl.

What Boldin did almost never happens.

Congratulations on making history, Anquan.

i for one am so sick of people like you who want to excuse any black athlete's behavior because he is black.  its people like you that gave OJ 10 years of undeserved freedom. i am not against african americans.  i am against those -who deserve to be called by that other word- who think  black skin=automatic pity party and forgiveness.  that does not include Q, but it sure includes you.

Why must you make it a race issue??  He made the point that Warner was griping also but he didn't leave the game and locker room pouting like a spoiled brat.  AS Quan did.  Has nothing to do if he was white or black just the idea that his team just won the NFC Championship game, and they are going to the Super Bowl but he couldn't hang around and celebrate because his feelings were hurt.

This shouldnt even be a topic.  Not even talked about, other than a side coment.  Anquan has laid it on the line this year.  Playing through multiple injuries that most players would have called it a season with and happily just took the pay.  Not to mention he isnt getting paid much compared to his counterpart.  I understand he might not be as gifted as Fitzy but it Fitz is a 10 Anquan is a 8.5 to 9.  Yeah, bad idea, bad time, but THE CARD's are in the SUPER BOWL and he helped them get there this year when he could have just stayed home after that hit this year.  THATS WHAT WE SHOULD BE TALKING ABOUT WHEN YOU MENTION ANQUAN BOLDIN!!!!!!

Q battled back and sacrified himself
for the team to get ready for this game, the guy injured his leg and saw a specialist this week to get ready, so i dont see that being selfish.

Reminds me of another guy... TO! He worked his tail off and sacrificed himself to come back early from injury to play in the '04 Super Bowl for the Eagles. After they lost, he promptly threw his QB under the bus.

Come to think of it, if TO is released by the Cowboys Q can move over to Dallas... they'll need someone new to yell at Romo and the coaching staff!

Wow there are bloggers here that actually compare his antics to T.O!!!!!!! You guys can not be serious. Boldin argued with the coach then left after the game before the reporters showed so he would not have to answer questions about said incident. All so he would not spoil the moment for the team. Does not sound T.O like to me!!!! I am sure he would have loved to celebrate that moment, also Freeman is a ****head

AZcardsfan33... NO NO NO!!! I agree that you are obviously not a child, but neither is Boldin, yet he behaved like one--a spoiled one, at that--in front of millions of kids who pay attention to that sort of behavior. He was "out of line" and it's a damn "shame he did not cool down." And, as for Haley--of course he said it was "a heat of the moment thing." That's what grown-ups do! Freeman's piece may have lacked depth, but it harms only the diva who acted like a jerk, and pro athletes who act as such deserve a little harm.

Playmaka... It's a new day, son. And your raced-based world view is so 20th Century. Boldin would be an ass if he were an eskimo, and a black sportswriter who speaks the truth about black athletes is not a "tom," he's an asset. So pull up your pants, turn your hat around and stop behaving like Anquan, schmuck.

How can you say he is far from a selfish player or a bad teammate when he won't stay around to celebrate the victory. I don't know him personally, and you do, so yes he probably does work his tail off and plays hard, but how can you say he is not selfish or not a bad teammate when he leaves the locker room and doesn't celebrate with THE TEAM.

Why you gotta try and make this about race? We just elected an African American to be the leader of the free world, so the days of affirmative action and playing the race card will hopefully soon be a thing of the past. A jerk is a jerk whether white, black, purple or green....and Boldin showed his true colors (green with envy)
