Former NFL player Jack Brewer and Dan Dakich discussed a social media post by Rashard Mendenhall, proposing an “All-Black vs. All-White bowl” to replace the Pro Bowl.

Brewer emphasized that people tune into sports commentary for perspectives, not skin color, and highlighted the importance of communication and engagement skills.

Dakich emphasized seeking professional opinions, citing Tony Romo’s ability to relate to the audience. (Trending: Judge Announces Historic Ruling In Jeffrey Epstein Case)

Both stressed the unique skill sets and appeal of commentators, irrespective of their race.

“Dan, people tune into your show because they want to hear your perspective. They don’t care if you’re White, Black, green or purple,” Brewer said.

“For me to come and say, ‘Hey, Dan can’t break down football’ or ‘his analysis is not as pure’ because he didn’t run a 4.3, I think that’s when idiocy kicks in because it really makes no sense to be able to use your logic and to communicate with people and engage the audience.”

“All those skills – those count too. It’s more than just skin color.”

“I remember watching Tony Romo as a player,” Brewer said.

“He was a much better commentator than he was a player in my eyes because he can literally relate to the audience and tell you exactly what he was seeing from the field perspective, and everyone couldn’t do that. It was a clear advantage.”

“But, at the same time, no one is gonna tell us that when we popped up on ESPN and watched some of the greatest of the greats present the games — Stuart Scott and those individuals like that — that we didn’t love their commentating because they had a skill set that was unique and something that appealed to the audience.”

“To discount that, I think, is outlandish.”
