I’ll always remember him as the great potential that fell away with his attitude and this PED issue. He could have been the greatest, but his own ego and the pressure that came with being great got to him. Great player, but not a great attitude. So sad it’s come to this.
Earlier this summer, Riley Cooper was at a Kenny Chesney concert. What appears to be an act of frustration for not getting backstage passes, the above incident happened and was recorded. (And it doesn’t help the stereotype of rednecks who love country music.)
The video surfaced around today about a month since the incident and the backlash has been intense. Cooper in his anger to what was reportedly a security guard is unacceptable and saying “I will fight every n***** here” is just not right.
Since then, he’s apologized on Twitter and spoken to the media. on it. The team has also fined him.
