Banter amongst fans happens all the way, but some people seem to take things way too far.
That’s exactly what the hosts of 105.3 The Fan’s Dallas radio show “GBag Nation” did this week when discussing the upcoming playoff matchup vs. the 49ers, and specifically, Christian McCaffrey.
McCaffrey’s name was mentioned and the conversation quickly turned toward his injury-prone past when he was in Carolina.
“(The) McCaffrey trade is paying dividends. He’s made it unfair. You know. He took them from…” Gavin Dawson said.
“He’s healthy now,” Bryan Broaddus responded. “In Carolina he couldn’t stay healthy. Now he never gets hurt.”
“We could use an injury. We really could,” Dawson added.
“Hamstring would be good,” Broaddus said.
Broaddus was called out on Twitter for the comments. He would soon apologize by saying, “I am sorry this even happened. Not my intent. My hope it’s a great game.”
Another host on 105.3 defended Broaddus and Dawson, saying that the comments were “clear sarcasm.”
“I would say I’m surprised that people are unable to pick up on the clear sarcasm of @gavindawson @BryanBroaddus here… But I’m not. Somewhere we lost the ability to know what irreverence sounds like.”
Including the playoffs, McCaffrey has played 18 games between the Carolina Panthers and 49ers. Since joining the 49ers this season, McCaffrey is averaging well over 100 yards per game.
San Francisco’s offense became even more lethal with the addition of the 26-year-old running back.
McCaffrey tallied 746 yards and six rushing touchdowns on 159 carries in 11 regular-season games with the 49ers while notching 52 receptions, 464 yards, and four touchdowns in the passing game.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
