ESPN commentator and former NFL player Domonique Foxworth revealed why he roots against Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen: his fans are normal, patriotic Americans. Which, for Foxworth is apparently beyond the pale.
In particular, Foxworth believes that because Allen’s fans on social media frequently have dogs or American flags in their social media bios. Traits which apparently, at least for Foxworth, mark them as a fascist, a racist, or both.
As The Daily Wire reports:
“I am fully aware that I have biases,” Foxworth said Tuesday on ESPN podcast “The Right Time with Bomani Jones.”…
“And my biases are not based on Josh Allen. It’s based on the people that are defending Josh Allen,” he said. “I would be 100% lying if I said that when Josh does something dumb, a little part of me doesn’t get happy. And it’s not because I don’t want Josh to succeed.”
“It’s because the people who are telling me that Josh is the second coming and Josh is better than everybody are people with American flags and dogs and skulls and crossbones,” continued Foxworth. “… And then if you go just take a dip into their tweet history, it’s some really concerning retweets and likes.”
“It’s not about Josh,” he emphasized. ” … Generally, I’m pro-player and I’m looking for ways to understand a player’s position and defend a player. But in Josh’s case, it’s not about him. He is the ground on which we are fighting.”
