Which might be relevant if Franklin had called Saban a honky.
I disagree...I think that is equally disrespectful and unprofessional. I cant think of another worse term to demonize someone else than "Satan". Calling franklin "brotha" is much tamer.
"The (All In) Family"
You're entitled to your opinion, but to equate calling Saban what many regard as a cartoon character to using a racial term is just ignorant. Period.
Pump your brakes James...

To be fair...using your argument you also have to consider that many regard Satan in a similar offensive way as a minority would take being called a brother. You have to use your argument both ways, not just one.
Your post, judging, slamming Christians & "real Christianity" amuses me. I won't judge you for it. I'll pray for you instead.
Franklin was probably trying to be funny, but he came across about as Bush League as it gets.
Enjoying the process. RTR!
THIS...it was like he was expecting some laughter and didn't get it.
And to think I liked him too..... Definitely lost some respect for him there. Very immature thing to say.
I did not like the comment at all. It was disrespectful and very juvenile of Franklin to make that statement . Coach Saban's dedication and work ethic is to be admired in a time where so many like to take short cuts or take the easy way out ! Franklin and others need to get on his level and quit trying to nip at his heels !
Lol very funny
Let's cut out everything else out like the silly religious arguments and call it for what it was - it was a "cute" attempt at chest-thumping, my _____ is bigger than yours, humor that wasn't funny or original. And then he apologized, And blamed the media in the process - the worst kind of apology.

That's like out roundhouse kicking Chuck Norris. Ain't gonna happen.
The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 2 Cor 10:4
I have a suggestion for you: Consider using your position of authority to steer the thread instead of rolling up your sleeves, jumping in the fray and then giving us a synopsis that most have realized from the jump.
David Bowie is not amused by Franklin's comment:
Neither is Chipper Jones:
This doesn't make me feel any better. Looks somewhat of a left handed, limp wristed slap at Bama fans in particular. As if he was saying we're too dumb to take a joke. Am I reading it wrong, or just overly sensitive?
After all, I live in the North and already have to endure a few left handed compliments to anything to do with Alabama.
All your five stars are belong to us!
I still like Franklin. But that was dumb
