Originally written August 03, 2013 on Thacover2:
Riley Cooper is somewhere at home, thinking about his terrible decision to use the N-word, and trying to figure out where he will go from here. Riley Cooper also may be a liar, and not truly sorry. Crossing Broad is reporting that Cooper may have had the opportunity to intervene before that video ever saw the light of day. According to reports, Cooper was contacted by the owner of the video, and friends of the person who recorded Cooper using racial slurs. Cooper reportedly rebuffed all attempts to speak with him by blocking them on Twitter as recently as Sunday night. The video had been circulated amongst a small group of friends, several of whom contacted Cooper via Twitter over the past month and a half. Two of the people who contacted Cooper, one of whom eventually provided us with the video, confirmed that Cooper blocked them on Twitter, perhaps as recently as Sunday night. Before releasing the video, we knew that Cooper had been contacted about its existence, but were unaware...

  • "Oh what a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive". I forget what old dead person coined that phrase but Cooper should have given it some thought if he is in fact lying about knowing the video was out there.
  • I don't think many level minded people are surprised by Cooper's knowledge about the video, but more importantly,not really caring who saw it, even this teammates. All of his news conferences validated that he seemingly was enjoying the attention. When you couple that with the manner by which he used the "N" word, Cooper is an evil, manipulative, despicable, guy who probably received congrats from Ann Coulter,Rush Limbaugh, and murder Zimmerman. I'm just wondering if Rodger Goodell was at Cooper's "coming out" party?
