Wow,
Josh Allen’s racist tweets from HS have surfaced.

Does not bode well for a draftee or an NFL Teammate.

This cut and paste may offend, that is your warning.



Former Wyoming quarterback Josh Allen apologized for some offensive and racist tweets he made in high school.

Allen is projected as a top–five pick in Thursday's draft and told ESPN.com that he he was young and dumb when making the tweets.

The tweets have been deleted from Allen's account, but Yahoo! Sports reports that the tweets were sent when Allen was in high school in 2012 and 2013.

According to Yahoo@ Sports, below are some examples of Allen's tweets.

(Warning: The tweets contain offensive language.)

“@cheriishhh: i dont think you n***** want a troubled son!” — Josh Allen (@JoshAllenQB) June 14, 2012

“@Alpha_Patlan: “@J_Prodigy_5: @Alpha_Patlan (uhh) stay schemin…” N***** Trying To Get At Me. ” doe — Josh Allen (@JoshAllenQB) February 12, 2013

"@FelipeeeeMelo_: Bout to show up these N**** at pong. Gonna do for @j_prodigy_5 @AFlyer5 and @J_Sal_Forever_5.":) — Josh Allen (@JoshAllenQB) February 26, 2012

Why are you so white ? — If it ain't white, it ain't right! http://t.co/wsLQKZQWG5 — Josh Allen (@JoshAllenQB) June 25, 2013



BS that they release it today. Clearly trying to effect his stock.

He might go from the most overrated (IMO) to the most underrated by the end of the day.


Always telling my oldest son that fleeting angry thoughts last for a few minutes, but putting them on social media makes them last forever.

Looks like a repeat of the great bong mask video of a few years ago. Released just in time to drive him down the board.

Allen's Tweets are from years ago, I read it as some dumb young high school kid trying to act 'cool' on social media.

Any GM that drops him down for that is an idiot.

His completion percentage is what should drop him.

If some of things I said at that age were public record I would probably be homeless.

This is a teaching moment, every high school teacher in the country should talk about this today regardless of the subject they teach. This type of stuff bites a lot of kids in the ass when applying for scholarships and trying to get that first job after school.

HR more and more often scan social media, it isn't just athletes.

I can hear Spielman at his presser; We did our homework...we couldn't pass on the incredible value..we're really excited to add the talent...

Does that mean at 30? Well, not like I know the draft or can get in the head of gm's...

I'll stand with no DT at 30.

If Taven Bryant dropped to 30 I could see it. Not for Hurst though.

But Hurst is better than Bryant and the risk seems very small IMO.

Says you. I'm not seeing that in the infallible pundit rankings I'm looking at.

The Pundit rankings you see are downgrading Hurst due to the irregular heartbeat. As far as Talent goes almost everybody sees Hurst as more talented.

Don't agree. I'm not looking at rankings based on where players are going to be drafted ... I am looking at best prospects at DT and overall prospect rankings.

I also think a lot of people rank Bryant higher than Hurst because of the projected upside.

Oh ... and then there's the heartbeat issue which most likely probably almost certainly may not be an issue.

Love the last sentence. I don't watch college football I'm just going off what I hear. I hear this Hurst is a damn good football player. It doesn't seem like his heart issue is any big deal. Could something go wrong with him. Sure it's possible. No guts no glory. If an OL we really like isn't available I would select Hurst.

Yeah none of it sounded legitimately racist to me. Just sounded like stupid trash talking except for the if it ain't white it ain't right. Now that sounded actually racist, but you have to know context for all of this stuff.

Absolutely. When I was in high school, I had a chronic condition. My mouth constantly engaged about twenty seconds before my brain. People can actually grow and change as a person. If organizations perform their due diligence ahead of time, something like this affect his stock one way or another.

I think a GM is foolish not to consider it.

I you have to consider the culture you are bringing him into. If you are confident your team can handle the issue, then great.

If you already have some tension on the issue on your team are you OK with bringing in this guy as a leader?

Like I said ... due diligence. If there are red flags about him in this area, it should come up if the team is doing it's job in checking this person's back ground. He played with a great many athletes of color in college. How he interacted with them and what attitudes he showed toward them should carry a lot more weight. If they checked his background thoroughly, they can decide if this was a stage of a greater pattern or a dumb ass teenager talking smack in the dumbest possible way.

Investigate, track down which team prompted the release of this information and you will likely find the team that drafts him.

That's so much bullshit. The same thing happened to the guy at Villanova the day after he won Most Outstanding Player.

Folks act like he's wearing on a white robe and pointy hat. He was maybe 14, 15 years old? He was a ****in kid, using a profane word in what has become a common, yet still very inappropriate usage of it by people young AND old, mostly black.

So much ado about nothing.

The tweets have been known about for years. That’s what makes there release today diabolical and planned.

I think people are struggling on whether he is racist or not. Whether he is or isn’t might not be the issue.

He is now perceived as possibily racist and sometimes that’s all it takes.

If say you have a young white, head coach you have to be sure this is a issue they can handle.

BS that they release it today. Clearly trying to effect his stock.

He might go from the most overrated (IMO) to the most underrated by the end of the day.



Investigate, track down which team prompted the release of this information and you will likely find the team that drafts him.


It could easily have been someone without an agenda.

Some people do ridiculous/evil stuff just for their “15 seconds of fame”.

It’s in the news almost everyday.

That's so much bullshit. The same thing happened to the guy at Villanova the day after he won Most Outstanding Player.

Folks act like he's wearing on a white robe and pointy hat. He was maybe 14, 15 years old? He was a ****in kid, using a profane word in what has become a common, yet still very inappropriate usage of it by people young AND old, mostly black.

So much ado about nothing.

Totally Agree Ian, for all we know these could have been his buddy's, and he was just talking smack. You can make anyone
sound like a racist if you can pick and choose things that he's put on social media the last ten years without any context of
the situation.

I’ll go on the record and say his tweets are not OK.
I hope it costs him Millions.
I was in HS also, but I knew right from wrong.
He was questionable on many levels to begin with,
accuracy percentage, footwork, performance against better teams,small school competition, and now a potential
locker room situation?
No thanks.

Give him a free pass if you want because he’s an athlete, but I wouldn’t.
I’d make him somebody else’s problem.

If he grew up in Wyoming is one thing but he is from a suburb of Fresno, CA. A lot more diversity there. I am leaning towrds missing the context.

I can hear Spielman at his presser; We did our homework...we couldn't pass on the incredible value..we're really excited to add the talent...

Does that mean at 30? Well, not like I know the draft or can get in the head of gm's...

I'll stand with no DT at 30.

If Taven Bryant dropped to 30 I could see it. Not for Hurst though.

But Hurst is better than Bryant and the risk seems very small IMO.

Says you. I'm not seeing that in the infallible pundit rankings I'm looking at.

The Pundit rankings you see are downgrading Hurst due to the irregular heartbeat. As far as Talent goes almost everybody sees Hurst as more talented.

Don't agree. I'm not looking at rankings based on where players are going to be drafted ... I am looking at best prospects at DT and overall prospect rankings.

I also think a lot of people rank Bryant higher than Hurst because of the projected upside.

Oh ... and then there's the heartbeat issue which most likely probably almost certainly may not be an issue.

Love the last sentence. I don't watch college football I'm just going off what I hear. I hear this Hurst is a damn good football player. It doesn't seem like his heart issue is any big deal. Could something go wrong with him. Sure it's possible. No guts no glory. If an OL we really like isn't available I would select Hurst.



Gil Brandt has Hurst ranked at 51 overall.

Once again downgraded for the irregular heartbeat. I am more willing to take a risk to garner a larger reward.

Thank you for that very excellent way of making the point. This is much ado about nothing.

I almost want to change my draft challenge prediction to Hurst. It totally feels like a Spileman pick...

I went ahead and made him my 2nd pick even though I think the talent warrants a first round pick and at 30 I can see Spielman saying all the things I said he'd say...but maybe he'll be the 2nd pick. Who knows...not like I had a bead on the 2nd pick anyway...
