Channing Crowder: People hate me, so I’m doing something right

Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder is one of the brashest, most outspoken players in the NFL, so it’s not surprising that he got his own radio show on WQAM in Miami.

And according to Crowder, the fact that people so frequently roll their eyes (or worse) at his comments is proof that what he’s saying is valid.

“I know people hate me. When people hate on you you’ve got to be doing something right,” Crowder said on the first episode of his show on Sunday, via Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

I don’t doubt that a show hosted by Crowder could be highly amusing. He’s an engaging character who says funny things, even if you’re sometimes not sure whether to laugh with him or at him.

But when we’re talking about a guy who blames Mel Kiper for how much money he spent before he was drafted, launches into bizarre diatribes about Anne Frank and Helen Keller, and says he has no idea where London is, I wouldn’t be so quick to say that people hate him because he’s right.

  1. People hated Freddie Mitchell and Hitler too.

    Doesn’t mean either one of them every did anything right.

  2. Ive walked through tougher guys going to a fight than Channing Crowder – best Rex Ryan quote of all time

  3. I think you need to consider his tone when he makes some of those comments. Is he really serious, or is he being sarcastic? Just some food for thought.

  4. And according to Crowder, the fact that people so frequently roll their eyes (or worse) at his comments is proof that what he’s saying is valid.

    When people roll their eyes at you, it means you said something stupid or self-centered again. It’s almost like this guy gets a bonus for every boneheaded thing he says. I wish he would just shut up.

  5. If he’s healthy, AJ Edds might end CC’s career in Miami. Few Dolphin fans would miss him.

  6. Channing…honey…People do not hate you because you’re a good football player, you’re not…borderline NFL @ best…Dolphins a mess, otherwise you’d be unemployed…You cannot tackle, you cannot cover…but yes, you can talk.

    People hate you because you are a first rate MORON.

  7. Hate him? Who is he? He’s a nobody, why hate a nobody when nobody even knows who he is outside of his teams own fanbase.

  8. Lots of Dolphins fans around to downvote negative comments.

    We should wait until midseason to take shots at them.

  9. no, crowder, you are just a blithering idiot.

    go sing some show tunes, channing.

    The only thing the guy is even known for is getting his head played like a bongo by Matt Light.

  11. I can tell you one thing. He makes tweedledum and tweetdedee appear smart. Why can’t teachers have the platform these idiots have. And I don’t use the word idiot without thought. This guy has less intelligence than my dog. And that is a fact.

  12. Remember the days when there were one or two self promoting players, who played well, in the league per year? Now there are only one or two good players who keep there mouths shut and just dominate. ESPN effect?

  13. I’ve never understood why people leave posts to state how they don’t care about an article…when the act of leaving a post at all contradicts their “lack of caring.”

    Anyone with a semi-functioning brain knows not to read an article about something/someone that they truly do not give a sh*t about.

    Think about it…though I’m aware that might be asking too much of you.

  14. Anyone who blames Mel Wiper for his own inability to manage money shouldn’t be taken seriously.

    This guy is dumber than a second coat of paint!

    Anyone who takes Mel Kiper seriously shouldn’t be taken seriously.

    Crowder is trolling the media with his comments, and he is obviously winning…….

  17. Be careful blaming him for not knowing where london is.
    Half the posters on this site dont know where to place all 50 states

  18. For the last time the Anne Frank thing was a joke from Clerks II and if you ask anyone that actually saw the movie it was funny as hell

  19. Channing Crowder has plenty of talent and is an excellent tackler which is great for the Dolphins. My problem with Channing is he talks smack in the media wayyyyyyyyyyy too much. If Channing could stay healthy while doing all of his talking on the field then I’d be happy but he is paid very well for someone who is constantly injured and looking like a complete idiot in the media and reflecting poorly on the Dolphins.

    Signed,

    Dolphins Fan

  20. I don’t care how he does on his show, he’s #1 in my book for standing up to the Ravens and their trash talking punks. I wish he would’ve slugged MacLain.
