majority of these anime writers gotta be pedoph*les by the way they sexualize their school-age characters. https://t.co/gQnVHYz6IC
Deion Sanders wants to know why the media doesn't give HBCU football more coverage. #CoachPrime
It’s not about that. Deion asked the reporter nicely to call him coach. The asshole reporter then sarcastically called him Deion again. @DeionSanders
was within his rights to beat him within an inch of his life if you ask me. https://t.co/fCJd1gm55H
A white sports “reporter” tried to disrespect Coach Sanders by repeatedly referring to him as Deion even after the coach took issue with it.
Many of these types of sports reporters harbor anti-Black sentiments and they try to disrespect Black coaches & athletes off the field

Deion Sanders can call Nick Saban by his first name because they’re peers. Reports are not peers of coaches. I covered the NBA for 10+ and not once did I ever call a coach by their first name. I called them “coach” out of respect for their titles. I’m glad Prime walked out. https://t.co/3ZAR09EUj0
"You don’t call Nick Saban ‘Nick.’ … Don’t call me ‘Deion.’"
Coach Prime wants his respect
Interesting to see the, um, whitewashing of this exchange. After Coach Prime told the reporter how he preferred to be addressed, the reporter called him Deion again just to be a dick. That part of the interview was curiously omitted from much of the reporting yesterday https://t.co/F7HKR1hSxF
Should Coach Deion Sanders have compared himself to Coach Saban? Probably not. But he did ask to be called Coach Sanders and you still disrespected the man. I like how he handled the situation. No going back and forth just get up and leave with a smile..!
Day 30 of the binge. "As black people, we waste way too much energy interpreting the actions of white people and too little time evaluating our own. We foolishly believe their actions are more important than our actions. We've anointed them our gods." https://t.co/2k3z2D1QlL
Is anyone talking about the fact Deion banned someone from covering media days because they reported a domestic abuse charge on one of his recruits because that’s a way bigger deal.

In a recent Instagram post, Deion wrote, “I left the foolishness because I’ve learned the gift of walking away from the mess.” He continued telling men & women to stop letting people disrespect them! https://t.co/VrG3uTaPCI

Y'all will defend pronoun preferences but think Deion Sanders wrong for asking to be called his professional title in a work setting by a reporter. Media getting out of hand with the disrespect and entitlements. Interviews should not be mandatory they're a privilege.
The guy calling him Deion after he requested to be called something else is basic respect.
The original assumption to call him Deion before the correction is not wrong because journalists are not subordinates and can address coaches as equals.
Jackson State coach Deion Sanders walked out of the Southwestern Athletic Conference Media Day after a reporter twice called him by his first name. https://t.co/PuLTlbBXEw
Them crackers can’t believe Deion Sanders asked to be called by something other than his first name
He actually never asked to be called anything. He said “don’t call me Deion.” Which is what everyone knows him as. He can say, “I prefer coach.” Or whatever. Handle the issue with respect and you get it back. Handle it like an ass and the guy acted like an ass in return
This is a great look at the situation. When I saw this yesterday I thought to myself, "I've heard Saban called 'Nick' many times before," but the added context is correct if Deion asked to be addressed differently.
In the end for me, it’s just prime time creating a show. He is great at that. I would continue to call him Deion and I would hope he continues to walk out. That would make it fun for every one.
