"scrappy, technical, smart" = White
"class act" = Black people that sports announcers like
"firebrand, hot pepper" = Latino
"inscrutable" = Asian
"freaks of nature, physically dominating" = Black
"thugs" = Black people that sports announcers don't like

But i think every one that covers football is racist.
Cleveland shouldn't even have sports teams. Their city sucks ass. May have made sense in the 30s and 40s when all of those factories were open and bustling, but not now. LeBron is following the migration patterns of most people in the country -- moving down South or out West.

It's always unfortunate when the UFC announcers say something like that because a day later it sometimes turns out they aren't so much a freak of nature...as juiced up out of their minds.

But to your point, I'm sure that label got applied to Mark McGwire pretty frequently in the late '90s.
