Ex-Buc Black Downplays Locker Room Turmoil

October 7th, 2013

Cut by the New Schiano Order last week, safety Ahmad Black is grilled by reporter Chris Fischer in this WTSP-TV, Ch. 10 video. Black is all smiles and short answers. He downplays alleged locker room turmoil at One Buc Palace, and he’s not sure he can bear to watch the Bucs.

    Thanks Joe(s) for getting this up 🙂

    Ahmad….you are a smart guy!!! Unlike Freeman….you took your cut like a man.
    You may be blowing some smoke up our azz…but its not the kind of smoke that got you in trouble.

  3. BirdDoggers Says:

    Even if there was turmoil, Black is smart not to say anything. If the Bucs need a safety, he might be getting a phone call.

  4. PRBucFan Says:

    Always an excuse, first it’s “he’s not in the pros”, than it’s “he wouldn’t say anything anyways”.

    Lol Hopeless

  5. Tampabaybuctfan Says:

    Thus far I have seen zero evidence that this team has quit on Schiano….and that includes our on field play.
    The only one who may have quit is now drawing a double salary.

    Raheem was a turd. Why would the QB he picked not also be a turd?

    Minnesota: you just signed the poor mans Christian Ponder by signing Josh Freeman. Just be sure to keep your DBs out of his Adderall stash.

    Responses to ex Buc Black not wanting to screw up any chance of getting reinstated. Typical water boarded response!

    @ Splengo

    That doesn’t mean its untrue….Like I said….I don’t see any evidence of “turmoil”…even Barber’s comment about winning back the locker room could have meant…after someone else like Freeman screwing it up….

  9. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    Even in the remote chance that the team were to go 12-0 (which isn’t fair to expect from a rook). But, even if it happened, despite all odds, there are a handful of you who have an agenda, and would still bash Schiano.

    Freeman is in Minnesota. Get over it.

  10. Just A Juggalo Says:

    The chances of the Little General going 12-0 for the rest of the season are about the same odds as me winning the Powerball for 12 consecutive weeks.

    Ahmad Black needs a job, he would never have anything but glowing Kumbaya memories of his time with the Buc’s soap opera.

  11. Splengo Says:


    Go right ahead and call me out for trying to get Schiano run as if he needed my help. I am not thin skinned. I have unabashed proclaimed from day one that I don’t believe that Schiano is a NFL caliber coach. You and I both know that my words amount to a hill of beans what ultimately happens to Schiano. You know it’s all about wins and losses. We all have our sport. I simply try in a comical way, to cast my vote. Don’t take it personal, it isn’t meant that way.

  12. Oil Derrick Brooks Says:

    Alright man.

    I felt that way after they drafted Freeman, but held off about 3.5 seasons. H_ell, I was not sure about Raheem either.

    To me, even if the losses continue, Schiano was a necessary douche to get rid of that fishy smell of all the criminals, malcontents, and the slacker mentality that Raheem cultivated. Dominick gets no pass either.

    I’m not against a partier, per se. But, it can never affect your preparation, your attendance, and certainly not your production. But, those are rare, rare guys. As such, Favre gets a pass.

  13. White Tiger Says:

    Hmmm…. I heard two distinct messages in what Ahmad Black said: 1) downplays locker room turmoil 2) doesn’t think he can stand watching the Bucs this year…

    Yeah, believe that crap about not believing what you hear about the locker room if you want. His last statement is a qualifier. It means the professional who was most recently IN the locker room just told you he won’t be watching whats coming….translation: if their is no locker room issue today, it’s because we didn’t lose again during the bye week.

    Players have a funny thing about them – stuff happens that changes a locker room without anyone saying anything – like continuing to lose with the new QB, the same way you were losing with the old QB.

    Believe what you want, reality is we didn’t lose this week. If they see another dose of losing and have to face fans, competitors, and media who ask the same stupid questions – they’re about one more loss away from the locker room turning on Schiano.

  14. PRBucFan Says:

    Genius, it’s because it’s his first time getting cut, and he WANTS to be on the field with them.

    Come on Ms.Cleo your not THAT stupid.

  15. dee Says:

    This coach has to go!!!

  16. Cody Says:

    For cryin out loud can we get a break from the media bullsh!t…

    I still like Schiano, I still have faith in Schiano period…Tampa Bay Bucs Fans really piss me off some times…This guy has only been here 1 and a quarter year and people already want’em fired…this is the most fickle/finicky fan base in the league bar-none…

    Many wanted Freeman gone before Schiano even got here now many of the same people are now complaining when we cut him…The worst fan base in the league…smfh…

  17. Cody Says:

    how can any coach succeed here…We have way too many Fair-weather fans…When the going gets tuff everybody jumps off the bandwagon…it’s sickening…

  18. IdahoBucsfan Says:

    I still like Schiano too! I think a lot of us do,.. he IS what this team neads, and will be a winning coach! If you have doubts about the “locker room” pay a little closer attention to Ronde Barber,.. HE knows the situation, and HE supports the coach! GO BUCS!

  19. Patrick Says:

    Shut up people, I think this team has great fans considering all the losing we’ve had to put up with for 37 years.

  20. Bobby Says:

    “Come on Ms.Cleo your not THAT stupid.”

    Oh yeah…I’m telling you, he IS! Did you read his post saying the Bucs and Glennon lost to arguably the wort team in the NFL besides the Bucs?? I gently pointed out the Cards have the #3 defense and are 3-2. This dude is one dumb bunny….

  21. Upthegut Says:

    Ahmad Black , you sir, are a class act! I want the Buc’s to bring you back because your positive attitude is infectious. I am now an Ahmad Black fan.
    Freeman – watch the interview and grow up.
