The anglos that says “ Cmon, don't go too far ” are those who are older and have a better judgement because of life experience/maturity.
Habitude, I hope Ribeiro continues to develop and becomes an 80-90 point guy. The way a lot of us comment on his act is generational, to an extent. More generational than racial, I hope. If a middle aged anglo white guy like myself doesn't find Terrell Owens end zone routine funny, am I racially biased, or am I just not buying what is being sold today. When the Alouettes do their routine, I laugh like a hyena because it is intended to be funny. I think there is a trend of the individual rather than the team that is popularized, possibly because the media sells the star rather than the team. I don't put any of this at Ribs' feet because, while the issue interests me, that was just one instant in one game, a hotly contested game.
