Tiki Barber:
He's always been a brilliant idiot. Easily one of the most intelligent people I've covered and also one of the more tone deaf. It's not a stunner that he made some truly insensitive comments in an interview with Sports Illustrated in which he compared himself to Anne Frank. And, in a nutshell, that's Barber. So much good, and so much phony. When in New York, he was always vastly underrated as a player. I covered Barber for most of his career and he remains one of the most versatile backs I've seen. He was also among the most arrogant. Most Giants players hated Barber. I mean, hated him. They thought he was a pompous putz on a lifelong journey to show the world he was smarter than most of his football peers. He worked some members of the New York media (and by worked, I mean suckered) into them portraying him as a combination of Jim Brown, Walter Cronkite and Marlon Brando.

Instances like this one were the reason why he was so disliked. Frank died in a concentration camp as a teenager after hiding from the Nazis for two years. I'm trying to think how a football player who cheated on his pregnant wife compares to a victim of the Nazis. Nothing comes to mind. Maybe it will later. There are a few things athletes should never do: compare themselves to slaves or victims of the Holocaust.

As for Barber, my guess is, his comeback will have moderate success. Barber always had a lot of heart. He was tough and he didn't leave the game because he was physically battered. Barber left because he thought he was on his way to one day host the CBS Evening News. He'll catch on somewhere and one day, I bet, he'll compare himself to Martin Luther King.

See you Monday.

First off you have no idea what I know about zionism. Secondlyit's just like a Jew to call the holocaust the worst act in human history, when it's just one of MANY HORRIBLE ACTS that men have done to each other. Being burnt in ovens was no worse the breaks of africans down in the carribian before they arrived in the us or the slaughter of the tianos or natives all over the north and south continents of america or english/scottish/irish acts versus each other so on and so on. But whats happens is the jewish media control so their story is the "worst". To be totally honest dosent YHVH punish his "choosen people" when they astry a little to much? So one could say that Hitler was a tool of GOD?YHVH the same way Nebuchadezzer of babloyn was. But I will be called an anti-semti now for stating historic events...whatever.

mulattoking, you have no idea what zionism is, and to say that these comments arent offense is just stupid. he is belittling the horrific experiance that millions upon millions of people went through. the holocaust was the worst act in human history, this is a guy who got a little annoyed at being a celebrity. i get annoyed when blacks use slavery as a excuse for behavior, but they do have a point that racism is rampid in the world today.

Is this the guy who had millions, and now is broke? Tiki the one who retired the year before the Giants won the SB? Trying to make a comeback after abot a 5 year layoff. Never happen. What a loser. Not really a vengeful person, but I am quite pleased that he has hit the bottom of the barrel. Never could stand his arrogance. Now he keeps making an ass of himself by his ignorant comments.

You know people are always getting on blacks for bring up racism and slavery, but these Hebrew converts(so-called jews) whine and complain 10 x's more then any group of blacks about people referenceing the houlcoust or being anti-semitic. Get over it. I read what he was referncing to about hiding out in an attic for a little while hiding from reporters about his own personal business. You name me one other person in the history that shoved down our throats that has a story about hiding out in an attic. Zionist at their best.

Way to go Tiki, I guess this shows the amount of brains you have and why you haven't been on the Today show in quite a while.  Ann Frank huh, to bad the article didn't go into how you got to that comparison.  What I don't understand, besides your stupid statements, is why in the world SI would carry and actually print the interview.  Just another example of why sports players should keep there mouths shut when someone sticks a mike in front of them.  Oh yeah you'll make a come back, guess all the big bucks, stardom and fame you thought the media would bring you didn't quite pay all the bills.

I always loudly proclaim that I am bigger than Jesus! Is there something wrong with this?
