    Barkley: "I'm from the South. I understand Boomer's (Esiason) rage and anger ... but he's a white guy and I'm a black guy. I don't know where he's from (editor's note: Esiason grew up in Long Island), I'm from the South. Whipping -- we do that all the time. Every black parent in the South is going to be in jail under those circumstances."

    Rome: "It doesn't matter where you're from: Right is right and wrong is wrong."

    Barkley: "I don't believe that because, listen, we spank kids in the South. I think the question about whether Adrian Peterson went overboard -- Listen, Jim, we all grow up in different environments. Every black parent in my neighborhood in the South would be in trouble or in jail under those circumstances."

    Rome: "My thing is: I don't want to tell anybody how to raise their kids and I really don't want anybody telling me how to raise my kids. But let's make a distinction between 'child rearing' and 'child abuse.' That was child abuse. There's no fine line here."

    Barkley: "I think there's a fine line. Jim, I've had many welts on my legs. I've gotten beat with switches -- and I don't even like the term. When the media talks about it, 'beating a child'--

    Rome: "But that's what that was, Charles."

    Barkley: "We called it 'spanking' or 'whipping' our kids."

    Rome: "If I see open wounds or bruises on a body that is a beating."

    Barkley: "Sure. I think those pictures are disturbing. And I think Adrian said 'I went overboard.' But as far as being from the South, we all spanked our kids -- I got spanked, me an my two brothers"--

    Rome: "But then, Chuck, not now, right? 1964 is one thing, 2014 is another. Maybe we need to rethink this thing."

    Barkley: "And I totally agree with that. But I think we have to really be careful trying to teach other parents how to discipline their kids. That's a very fine line."

    People are such pussies these days. My dad used to smack me on the ass until I could barely sit.

    Expect Sir Charles to be the latest suspended tv commentator.....

    I'm from queens. ..and me and my brother got spanked when we deserved it. Not beat or whipped. .but over the knee spanking.

    In fact. .my brother laughs and says he should ' ve gotten a lot more spankings.

    Truth. My dad would rarely spank me, but when he did it was something to remember and my ass would sting for hours. I deserved it far more often than I got it. Now corporal punishment is forbidden and we have a generation of little assholes running around.

    America has become pussified.

    We were all spanked, sometimes with their hands, sometimes with a belt, switch or something else. AP went overboard no doubt, there is a fine line...:coffee:

    A person who beats their child is the real pussy. There are ways to discipline a child. You don't have to smack them around.
