If a guy is old enough to be your daddy, he can call you 'boy" all he wants...

NFL looking into Rolle comment that official called him 'boy'
December 4, 2007

NEW YORK (AP) -- The NFL is looking into a postgame comment by Baltimore cornerback Samari Rolle, who contends an on-field official called him "boy" during the Ravens' 27-24 loss to New England.

Rolle identified the official by his number rather than by name following the Monday night game, which was marked by several disputed officiating decisions.

"The refs called me a boy," Rolle said, according to a transcript of postgame comments provided to the media by the Ravens. "No. 110 called me a boy."

Both Rolle and the official, identified in the NFL official guide as head linesman Phil McKinnely, are black. The 53-year-old McKinnely played in the NFL as an offensive tackle from 1976-82. He spent five seasons with Atlanta and one each with the Rams and Chicago.

"I will be calling my agent in the morning and sending my complaint," the 31-year-old cornerback added. "I have a wife and three kids. Don't call me a boy. Don't call me a boy on the field during a game because I said, 'You've never played football before."'

The Ravens were demonstrative after the game about the officiating, especially on the final drive that led to Tom Brady's pass to Jabar Gaffney for the winning touchdown with 44 seconds left. After the touchdown, set up by a fourth-down defensive holding call on Jamaine Winborne, linebacker Bart Scott was penalized 15 yards for complaining and another 15 yards for throwing the official's flag.

"In a game of this magnitude, you don't make that kind of call," Rolle said. "Let the players decide the outcome of the game. You can crown them champions now. I'm not taking anything away from them. They are a great team. They're not asking the refs to help them, but it's just an empty feeling."

So someone who makes hundreds of thousands of dollars a year for playing a game publicly complains because someone called him "boy"?

Unbelievable.

Rolle was complaining about a call to the ref and said he didn't know the game of football.

It just so happens that the ref is a former NFL player from the '70s and '80s.

And black.

Good thing McKinnely is black, this'll go nowhere and Sharpton and Jackson wont even get their private planes out of their hangers.

I doubt the ref called him that. He sounds like a whieny 31 year old child.

Sounds like he insulted the ref first. Ravens player is a total pussy.

Wouldn't hear a peep about this if they had won the game and ref had called him boy. Fuckin whiner. Big reason why I could give a shit about "professional" sports.
