Bo Jackson is not fond of what he considers the typical pro athlete these days, nearly 20 years since he last competed as a professional.
To make his point, he singled out Tennessee Titans’ quarterback Vince Young in an article published Monday by USA Today.
Jackson, who was an NFL All-Pro with the Oakland Raiders and an MLB All-Star with the Kansas City Royals, was critical of the attitude Young expressed in a 2007 interview with 60 Minutes and more recently of Young’s actions at Dallas strip club, for which he was cited by police.
"Remember when (Tennessee Titans quarterback) Vince Young did that interview, and they asked him, 'Well, can anybody tell you anything?' He sits up all proud and says, 'Nobody can tell me nothin.'
"And you see what happened to him? He gets into this brawl at a strip club when somebody says something bad about Texas. I'm like, 'Dude, do you think I'm going to whip your butt because you said something? You can say whatever you want about Auburn. I'm not that shallow. ... I'll probably agree with you. But nothing will make me mad enough to snap you and you hire a lawyer and try to get $100,000 from me."
