Fikrlar

  • Stephen A. Smith You can’t be Deion’s Friend Bruh.

  • “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.” ‭‭2 Timothy‬ ‭1:7‬ ‭KJV‬‬

  • TWND ya'll know what that means sound it out they should get their hands cut off

  • Stealing from coach was stealing from the whole team and institution it will be worse unless Biden is removed from office for treason.

  • Have a great day god love you

  • Show who stole from him!

  • Deion was right to say it publicly. That’s how you start the process of changing the mentality around there. Nothing changes when you sweep these things under the rug because you’re embarrassed for non-black America to hear it.

  • Your child would be blessed to be a part of the culture that man is about to diligently craft.

  • Deion is being purposely targeted because of what he's doing

  • Don’t Tell someone who was violated how to react! Get over the narrative! Smh 🤦🏾‍♂️

  • Stephen A. As usual you are so out of touch with reality. You are an Idiot and so unintelligent. I can't way for the day someone silences your BIG FAT Mouth.

  • No way is he ready for FSU.

  • Lmao hide it cause we're black. Same mentality people that defended Jussie Smollett had.

  • Coach Deion told the truth about what happened to him and Stephen A is 02:16

  • I always thought this guy speaks his mind not sure now

  • Every player and coach should have a wall locker and use their own pad-lock with a key... Why would a young kid want to go to school there if they don't even make wall lockers available to everyone ?

  • It sounds like Stephen A. would have kept quiet about it and been part of a big cover-up....

  • It’s Jackson it happens a lot

  • Of course Steve A. thinks Dion should of gotten the FSU job. Are you serious? Only because he’s black. He’s the biggest racist next to Shannon “Marble Mouth” Sharp. There is no way Dion should’ve gotten the FSU job He shouldn’t have the job he has now. Just because of his name. He should be coaching middle school or high school.

  • When you're a HF caliber person these things are going to happen! Everyone no matter who it is will take chances to get something from you! It's just one jackazz who did this.. Let's just move on! JSU!

  • completely disagree with SAS, Primetime got all of his things stolen why wouldn't he keep it 100? This was an opportunistic criminal taking advantage of some clearly shotty stadium security. A crime should be called a crime regardless of the gender, race, height or religion of the person who committed it. If a parent wants to keep their child from going to play for a HOF coach at a historic HBCU because of two thefts then so be it lol

  • Here's stephen a to bring race into it

  • i echoed the same sentiments Steven A!

  • Black people help perpetuate their own demise more than anyone else, here this man goes to an HBCU and puts it on the map, first time an HBCU school has been in the top 60 of a recruiting class, and its his own kind that’s gonna run him out and put them back as a nobody school, had he went to a normal university this kind of thing wouldn’t be happening, very sad for black people and HBCU’s, they won’t ever advance in society while these kind of things are going on

  • why wasnt the race of the thief mentioned....hmmm

  • Literally biting the hand that feeds you

  • I think he was frustrated. That was like the 3rd time he got robbed since he been in Jackson. Still I wouldn't have aired it out in the press.

  • Who cares about Steve,,are how he would handle it. Somehow it's a whites fault.

  • I knew this was gonna turn racial... This show is soo predictable man... I dont even think they can address a topic anymore without bringing race into the equation

  • The wolves caught his scent.

  • Stephen A be killing me man.

  • DEION SANDERS, IS MY FORMER MLB TEAMMATE AND IF HE SAYS SOMETHING WAS STOLEN THEN SOMETHING WAS STOLEN. THESE PEOPLE TRY TO PUT DOUBT IN THE MINDS OF OTHERS NEED TO STOP. I COMPLETELY DISAGREE WITH STEVEN A. 1

  • JACK-TOWN

  • Well Prime then you got your junk back then? So what you crying about? Always about you and your junk how about your team?

  • Stephen a. It is what it is a crime was committed so yes tell the world

  • Jackson state looks hood...smh

  • Stephen A: Stop Snitching Prime

  • He not gone make it down here.. too soft. Running to cameras ain’t the way to do it my guy

  • Stephen A. is a sucka

  • I agree keep White folks out our business

  • Who would do that? Crazy!

  • Black school and D.S an no gameboy had all the right to go ham. Some of the kids needed that farther figure to step up for them when they've did nothing wrong. His money, football equipment and players. Respect to S.A.S as well.

  • Stephen says how much he cares about HBCUS but he wanted Dion to get the job at Fla St. It's like here take the best we got yall had him Once take him again. Would it be just as embarrassing to Fla St. To have Dion property stolen there .

  • It had to be an Andre Rison relative or fan.

  • These people will think what they will think.

  • Why they keep reporting normal college crimes

  • Stop sugar coating., the self hatred and jealously we have for each other for being successful. Same old 🦀 mentality!!!

  • That boul want to hide it just like they like hidding there morrish history from the people.

  • Deion needs to behave as he would in any high crime area. Be carefule, take care of your stuff, and secure your valuables. Criminals do care if you are a celebrity.

  • Deion should do 1 year and bounce to a better school. They not even appreciating a famous coach for coming to their school. They wanna steal from him.

  • As someone who went to a black school, this isn't the least bit surprising lol

  • Coach Prime is going to have a crackhead party after each win.

  • This is the second time now I'm pretty sure people from that school are robbing more then deion

  • that girl said he trying to help y'all out. well dam!

  • equal opportunity criminals don’t care about your heritage. It’s all about them. they just don’t care. Blame their parents for not instilling basic human decency values .... a lot of people are poor and they don’t steal because they were raised right.

  • STFU Steven A. We're tired of your excuses... BLM, right? Right

  • Let’s see how Stephen “everything is racist” smith makes this about race again

  • FSU did the right thing, they saved him the embarrassment and having to fire your most known alumni. As a FSU fan we want coach prime but our current situation wouldn’t do him justice..

  • Steven A just concerned about not telling on the thief 😂😂😂😂😂😂 What a stupid response.... why hide it StevenA?? It’s called accountability... try to teach your colleges about it...

  • Nothing worse than a thief. Nasty

  • Unfortunately this is a what’s ganna happen at HBC

  • 2nd time, he’s been “robbed”.. cmon Jackson

  • All Steven A is saying is lets not bring negative light to HBCUs....that's all.

  • Stephen A has a valid point. People will use any ammo against hbcu’s

  • stephen a wants deion to say nothing wants certain players to shut up. if ur black and u act up u get put in your spot then and there he said he was coming to change the culture, stephen a wants him to brush it under the rug like hbcus done for years. i bet u the security will be stepped up.

  • I don't understand why people qoth hairlines like that don't shave there head. Stephen A looks dumb.

  • SA speaking facts

  • This guy always finds a way to make it about race lol.

  • Man shut up steven A. You talk to much boi ,he letting folks know folks is steeling his ***t. *Ucking with him .

  • I agree with Stephen A. Smith. Coach Deion Sanders shouldn't Publicized that. That is internal Problem he should kept to himself. I'm almost certain this happens at many Lockers across College Sports

  • Thiefs Imagine that ! Lol !

  • Haha ok so hide it?

  • Jacktown be the name, this is so embarrassing and I agree with Stephen A, I wished he would've handles it on the low. This is another reason ppl will say ah hah! See that's why we can't do nothing good for them.

  • This is why those people don't deserve it

  • so, dont report crime.. got it. I am not sure how their funds look compared to some, but they have a 10 year deal for funding thanks to the last administration for HBCUs. Its sad that people steal, and hopefully they are punished to the extent needed, and furthermore, hopefully it doesnt happen again. Deion could do great things as a coach I believe. The man knows the game and has more than enough love for the game. I hope his tenure there is a good one, and that someone sees that he can handle a school like FSU.

  • This is an attack of black star coaches taking jobs at HBCU's. They have to stop it.

  • Stephen couldn’t say that any better, this should’ve gone public because now this bring negative attention to a program Deion Sanders is trying to build

  • ? Aren't Black Americans tired of being 🤐 about things involving themselves and other people of race?? So if Deion is to keep quiet and handle it different, shouldn't all wrongs be kept quiet so people wouldn't think that stepping out your home's front door is a mistake???

  • What is Steven A talking about?? Prime is not painting the school in a negative light. Whomever saw the individual stealing before he got caught and didn’t report it is the one that is putting JSU in a negative light.

  • JAS, is a Monday morning quarterback.

  • There are a lot of administrators who are crooked at these SWAC schools and Deion is exposing the whole system and how they are compromised and on the payroll to keep HBCU's at a level of decrepitness.

  • The neat authorisation numerically depend because beer behaviourally matter onto a terrific camera. lamentable, cheap jet

  • Whatever brother do somebody have a problem with it Deion Sanders did the right thing

  • I'll say what a lot are thinking...look at the demographic. Besides, thieves don't care who you are. They will steal from anyone if the opportunity presents itself.

  • Yea steven a sweep it under the rug

  • I don’t like this take. This is the second time someone has stolen from him since being there. To me this is holding the city of Jackson accountable and showing them “we’re stronger if we stand together”. It’s always a bad look how somebody handles something until ur put in that situation. And if u have love and respect for HBCUs then u should call it how u see it Stephen A.

  • i cant STAND STEPHEN A, but he right on THIS ONE THING, FLOST SHOULD HAVE HIRED PRIME, PRIME IS NO JOKER, HE WANTS TO KEEP BEING GREAT,

  • I disagree with Stephen A Smith. I am an alumni of alcorn state university... JSU is ASU biggest rival. We play them at the end of the year every year...... Sanders could be a powerful tool to not only put JSU and ASU on the map.. .. But put the entire SWAC on the map. They better take care of that man long story short. If people robbed you when you bringing national attention to a hbcu program then the people around you need to get their act together and stop stealing

  • Of course steven its somehow about race rofl weirdo

  • Man know what to expect it’s the hood niggas gotta eat the good come wit the bad that’s y we love the hood lot of different personalities tryna make it

  • Chile I mean are we really surprised it's Jackson probably in a run down crime ridden area where the residents don't really have any hope or pride.

  • Now i understand why they call it jack town Mississippi, your items could literally be gone in 60 seconds like that Jack Nicholson movie, or even stolen for that matter.

    • You don’t really think jack nicholson was in 60 seconds do you.

  • Well what u expect when it's a all black school?? 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  • I'm glad he did it the way he did it. It puts the school on notice that this kind of behavior is present and will not be tolerated. This also lets people know that Jackson, Mississippi is a VERY POOR city and state for that matter. This provides context to how Deion and every recruit will have to conduct themselves in a city that does not necessarily see this as an opportunity to better themselves in the correct way but take shortcuts. I can also tell you that not everyone is happy about Deion coming to town, mainly because he will hold everyone in that University and Town accountable. It is an interesting experiment.

  • You know what they say the black always jack.

  • broke into his car and now this! he cant even go to sleep! they'll steal his dreams

  • Man this Lynch St.!! Na..

  • He lost his whole annual pay lol

  • This is Terrible JSU wins there home opener and the only thing Talked were Items stolen.Not the Accomplish made By The Team That should have been the only Topic The DEFENSE DIDN'T GET SCORED ON

  • So Stephen a is basically saying hide the truth because it’ll make hbcus look bad
