Channing Crowder: People hate me, so I’m doing something right

Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder is one of the brashest, most outspoken players in the NFL, so it’s not surprising that he got his own radio show on WQAM in Miami.

And according to Crowder, the fact that people so frequently roll their eyes (or worse) at his comments is proof that what he’s saying is valid.

“I know people hate me. When people hate on you you’ve got to be doing something right,” Crowder said on the first episode of his show on Sunday, via Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

I don’t doubt that a show hosted by Crowder could be highly amusing. He’s an engaging character who says funny things, even if you’re sometimes not sure whether to laugh with him or at him.

But when we’re talking about a guy who blames Mel Kiper for how much money he spent before he was drafted, launches into bizarre diatribes about Anne Frank and Helen Keller, and says he has no idea where London is, I wouldn’t be so quick to say that people hate him because he’s right.
