During his radio show on ESPN 540 Milwaukee, former Green Bay Packers tight end Mark Chmura decided to weigh in on current Packers tight end Jermichael Finley. Well Chmura didn’t exactly have nice things to say about Finley, so in my opinion he probably shouldn’t have said anything at all. Chmura expressed his thoughts about Finley by saying “He is a great player, but he is a moron.”
Chmura made this remark after a clip of Finley had been played on the air where he said that he had one word for everyone “Super Bowl Dallas, Texas.” I would have understood if he thought Super Bowl was one word, but just because he made a mistake he doesn’t deserve to be called a moron. I know that he was giving his personal opinion but honestly I think intelligence and athleticism are two different things and Chmura wasn’t fooling anyone with the “great player” part.
I really don’t understand Chmura’s issue with Finley and he really needs to stop. This isn’t the first time that Chmura has made comments about the Packers’ tight end. Back in May he told beat reporter Jason Wilde what he’d like to say to Finley:
“First thing I’d do, I’d say Shut your mouth. Shut up. Shut up! You’re dumb. You’re a heck of a player but… be quiet!”
Hmm, maybe take your own advice? I don’t exactly think that telling someone that he’s dumb or a moron is appropriate for a person with a background like Chmura’s. If I recall correctly, didn’t Chmura get caught in a hot tub with teenage girls at an after prom party? Yes, he did. And that was probably one of the dumbest things someone could do.
Finley on the other hand hasn’t done anything like that. He’s never been arrested, tested positive for steroids and all he’s ever done is missed a few meetings during the 2009 season and stayed out later than he was supposed to the night before the playoff game against the Cardinals last year. I don’t think any of those that qualifies under the description of “moron.”
I don’t know what bone Chmura has to pick with Finley but I think he needs to let it go. This is a classic case of the pot calling the kettle black, except like I said, I don’t remember hearing about Finley doing anything as dumb as Chmura has. If you think he’s a great athlete than leave it at that. There’s no need to sit here talking trash about a guy when your past isn’t exactly perfect.Google+
