Default Raheem 'Radio' Morris.

Bucs dealing with the realities of online bulletin boards
Posted by Mike Florio on October 27, 2009 2:42 PM ET
Like most if not all NFL teams, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have a bulletin board feature on their official web site, allowing teams to post messages and otherwise interact.


For the bad teams, "interaction" quickly becomes "venting."


And the fans of the Bucs are venting by applying an unflattering nickname to first-year coach Raheem Morris.


Per JoeBucsFan.com, they're calling Morris "Radio," the title character of a movie in which Cuba Gooding, Jr. plays a developmentally disabled man who finds acceptance with a local high school football team.


And now the moderator of the Buccaneers' bulletin board has asked fans to stop using the name.


Which, of course, will only cause them to use it more aggressively.


But here's the reality -- if you're going to have a bulletin board or a comments section and you want to keep the people who visit it from using certain terms or names, the only alternative to screening the submitted content by hand is to not have a bulletin board or a comments section at all.


Or to grow thicker skin.


As anyone who peruses from time to time the PFT comments, you'll realize that we've opted generally for door number three.


And I'm glad we did. Otherwise, I never would have known that my last name can be twisted into so many, um, colorful alternatives.

What's even more shocking is that people wanted him to get the HC job here.

I am going to say that I was one who thought they should consider Morris. But I am glad they didn't and I am glad I was wrong.

Its clear that Josh McDaniels was lightyears ahead of him and the other first year coaches in terms of being ready.

This is the Radio that they're referring to... pretty funny if you ask me.

Sounds pretty similar to the "Gutless Drunk" incident....

They ('Bucs) have gone from being a top notch franchise, to a stink hole. Bring back the gay guy from Key West logo on the side of their helments..

Good thing they didn't call him RaDouche, or something like that.
