The San Francisco 49ers have had several players in trouble this off-season, but lately they have had numerous guys in the funny papers. Guys like Ray McDonald, Aldon Smith and Bruce Miller have all been in some kind of trouble. Well Charles Haley the legendary pass rusher and Hall of Famer talked to the 49ers rookies and his message was simple, ACT White?
“As far as the rookies,” Haley told the San Jose Mercury News, “and I know they probably got mad, but I said, ‘Why don’t you all act like the white guys? You never see them in the paper getting high or hitting people. Why don’t you act like that?’ They all looked at me crazy.”
“I just did it for the shock value of it,” he told the Mercury News. “The hardest thing is these guys, they have an attention span of a 5-year-old. I’m not the most gentle and kind person to sit there and deal with that crap. I’m a little more confrontational. I think I got my point across.”
The only problem with that is Bruce Miller the 49ers fullback was recently arrested and guess what…..He’s White.
