Danny Ferry to take leave of absence with Atlanta Hawks, still not fired

Danny-Ferry

The Atlanta Hawks GM Danny Ferry has decided to take a leave of absence. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Ferry finally realized that he needed to step away from a situation that has become toxic.

The fallout occurred after Ferry made racial remarks about Luol Deng by saying, [Luol Deng] has a little African in him. Not in a bad way, but he’s like a guy who would have a nice store out front but sell you counterfeit stuff out of the back.” He was basically calling African’s two-faced liars and cheats.

Ferry suggested that he was reading a scouting report. The recording of the conference call was released and it appeared as if Ferry was making statements that he supported and believed.

A document that appeared to be the actual scouting report also surfaced.

However, Ferry’s leave of absence is only a prelude to the inevitable. The Hawks have yet to fire Ferry, but it’s only right that the team and Ferry go their separate ways.

Ferry will never be able to exist as a GM of a team in a majority black city that’s the home of the Civil Rights movement.

    yes there are a few immigrants who steal and lie .., but his chances of running into one is like a needle in a haystack … i wish the NFL AND NBA WILL START FIREING ABUSIVE PLAYERS AND FIRING RACIST MANAGERS .. THEY NEED TO START GIVING THOSE JOBS TO DEON SANDERS , MICHEAL IRVING, AND RETIRED PLAYERS THEY KNOW THE GAME WELL . .THIESE OLD BALL HEADED WORN OUT WHITE MEN WITH POT BELLYS SMELLING LIKE TUNA ., DONT KNOW NOTHING BOUT NO BASKET BALL … ANYONE CAN RUN AROUND ON A FIELD ACTING LIKE A DAM PATTY ROLLLER AT MASA COMMMAND … im sorry for comparing black players to slave and im not saying they ought to be treated tht way , i m say the obset they need to boycott every dam team who allow a man to say that to a player and keep him on salary .. why lay him off .. they are worst than the police dept that are giving these murder cops a break and a job to keep …

    WE AS AMERICANS ARE ANGRY NO ONE IS HAPPY RIGHT NOW NOT BLACK PEOPLE RATHER YOU WANT TO ADMITT IT OR NOT ., THERE IS AN UNDERLINE ANGER IN THIS COUNTRY .. THIS CENTURY WILL BREAK THE BROW OF RACISM AND WE WILL OVER COME IT OR BE PUSHED INTO A RACE WAR LIKE YOU NEVER SEEN …. WE NEED TO STAND UP ..

    Once you see the scouting report you’ll understand that he was just reading the report, as he’s supposed to do. The person that said those things in the report is the one who should be in trouble. Everyone wants to always jump on the bandwagon before the facts are available. He’s a great coach who Atlanta really needs
