Sweet Surrender

The NFl, not content to simply lose their fans and their ratings, has decided to strongarm their owners into donating $100 million to player-endorsed charities.

They do know it is not charity if it’s forced, right?

The NFL’s sellout to their anthem-protesting players is starting to look a lot more like a buyout. According to ESPN, the league will offer nearly $100 million to causes designed to promote “social justice change.”

In a move unlike anything seen from a major American sports league, the league will offer the money in hopes that it will end the ratings-killing protest movement begun by Colin Kaepernick in the preseason of 2016.

According to ESPN: National funding would be allocated accordingly: 25 percent to the United Negro College Fund, 25 percent to Dream Corps and 50 percent to the Players Coalition, which has filed 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) paperwork for nonprofit status as a fiscally sponsored project. This week, the coalition hired the Hopewell Fund to oversee and advise the group, which hopes to work with grassroots and nonprofit organizations in its areas of focus.

There is no doubt in my mind the NFL will be funnelling some of this money to the Black Lives Matter terror group. It won’t be listed on the press release, but I’ll bet my house it’s on the list. F**k the NFL, and f**k their social justice warrioring.

The NFL Is Preparing For A Self-Sack

Just when you thought the NFL couldn’t deteriorate any faster, the league’s owners have apparently said, “Hold my beer.”

[NFL owners] could, in theory, attempt to trigger forfeiture of the Dallas franchise.

The possibility flows from Article VIII of the NFL’s Constitution & Bylaws. Specifically, Section 8.13 authorizes the Commissioner to determine that an owner “has been or is guilty of conduct detrimental to the welfare of the League or professional football.” If the Commissioner believes the available sanction (a $500,000 fine) is “not adequate or sufficient,” the Commissioner may refer the issue to the NFL’s Executive Committee, which has the power to compel “[c]ancellation or forfeiture of the franchise in the League of any member club involved or implicated,” with a directive to sell the team.

Please do this, NFL. Please oust the only owner who vehemently supports both the troops and the police. All it would do is hasten your despicable organization’s demise.

The primary affront comes from the belief among owners that Jones instigated Papa John’s CEO John Schnatter to disparage the NFL, blaming league leadership for ratings declines and, in turn, a reduction in Papa John’s revenues.

The NFL is the Barack Obama of sports leagues; nothing is ever their fault. You assholes have disrespected the flag, the troops, the police, and the fans for the last two years, and you’re blaming plummeting ratings on Jerry Jones and a pizza maker? Are you serious?

You people allowed your criminals in uniform to participate in these protests. You let it continue, even after the fans told you it was offensive. And yes, you offended sponsors to the point that some have started to bail.

If you pompous pricks really want to know who is responsible for the demise of your league, it’s not Jerry Jones. It’s the man in the mirror.

Kaepernick Sacks Himself

MelP brought this beautiful story to my attention yesterday, and it may the the only real joy I’ve had since getting sick. NFL part-time scrub quarterback and full-time social justice warrior Colin Kaepernick filed a collusion grievance against the NFL, claiming every NFL team conspired to not sign the free agent, even though the man is thoroughly unqualified for a starting position.

COLIN Kaepernick delivered a salvo Sunday that will effectively end his NFL career. Desperation and frustration might have prompted his collusion grievance against the league stemming from his continued unemployment, but this much is clear: The polarizing quarterback will never take another snap under center again.

Kaepernick’s transition from signal caller to social justice advocate is now complete. His NFL life is over.

As awesome as the above sweet caramel outer layer is, the delicious vanilla creme filling is below.

Proving collusion, however, will be a Herculean task for Team Kaepernick absent hard evidence. Although there are clear provisions in the Collective Bargaining Agreement prohibiting clubs from working in concert to conspire against players, what are the chances of Kaepernick’s attorney unearthing a smoking gun (texts, emails, etc.) implicating owners in that regard?

More than one story I read stated Kaepernick’s case is nearly impossible to prove, and if this imbecile had any hard evidence, the suit would have been brought before this point. Kaepernick’s only evidence is he wants to play in the NFL, so that should be enough to pay him millions of dollars to fail miserably.

Kaepernick’s antics caused the end of his career, and is quickly causing the end of the NFL as we know it. I am actually uncertain which fate makes me giggle more.

VP Pence Leaves NFL Game After Protest

Vice President Mike Pence, the former governor of Indiana, walked out of yesterday’s Colts-49ers game after fifteen San Francisco players took a knee during the National Anthem.

Vice President Mike Pence walked out on his home-state Indianapolis Colts Sunday when members of the opposing team kneeled for the national anthem, but a report that Colin Kaepernick, the player who started it all, will stand if given another shot in the NFL was quickly dialed back.

“I left today’s Colts game because @POTUS and I will not dignify any event that disrespects our soldiers, our Flag, or our National Anthem,” Pence tweeted.

Several San Francisco 49ers players kneeled for the anthem on Sunday in Indianapolis. While a quarterback for the 49ers last year, Colin Kaepernick sat or kneeled during the national anthem last season to bring more attention to the killings of black men by police officers. The protests have grown this season.

Say what you will about Vice President Pence, but he is an honorable man who loves his country.

The NFL Is In Bed With George Soros

Despicable billionaire and Nazi sympathizer George Soros’s leftist activist organization has been the recipient of thousands of dollars from the NFL Player’s Association.

Tax documents released by 2ndVote show the NFLPA donated $5,000 in 2015 to the Center for Community Change Action, a group active in the anti-Trump resistance and bankrolled by a host of liberal foundations, including top Democratic donor George Soros’s Foundation for Open Society.

A member of the AFL-CIO, the NFLPA also contributed in 2013 and 2015 to Working America, the AFL-CIO’s community affiliate, which Open Secrets said spent $1 million in 2016 to defeat Mr. Trump. Working America has since mobilized against the Republican tax-cut framework, denouncing it as the “Trump tax scam.”

The NFLPA contributed $5,000 in 2014 to Jobs with Justice, another pro-union group backed by Mr. Soros, and $5,000 in 2013 to the progressive Los Angeles Alliance for a New Economy.

The NFL Player’s Association, and the NFL as a whole, is riddles with leftists. Most of these millionaires despise conservatives and the values for which they stand. The NFLPA is actively working with the world’s most despicable fascist, and they are both working against America’s interests.

I have been doing my best not to mention this disgusting sports organization, but the story needed to be posted.

The NFL Is Doubling Down On Stupid

Four NFL players – two from the Eagles – submitted a memo to the league offices demanding November be “activism awareness month.” See if you can guess who will be the target of the activism?

Four NFL players submitted a 10-page memo to the league’s top officials asking for “overt league support” and a month of anti-police activism.

The 10-page memo was obtained by Yahoo Sports and was endorsed by Seattle Seahawks’ Michael Bennett, Philadelphia Eagles’ Malcolm Jenkins, Eagles’ Torrey Smith and former NFL player Anquan Boldin. The memo was sent to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and executive vice president of football operations Troy Vincent.

Bennett has sat during the national anthem during games and raises a fist on the field after making plays in protest of the police.

Bennett does this Black Power bullshit in front of dozens of police officers, who volunteer to work their days off to keep these thugs safe on game day.

The memo asks for the league to make the month of November as “activism awareness month” such as the league does with breast cancer. The memo also blames police for the shooting of Trayvon Martin, who was shot and killed in 2012 by neighborhood watch volunteer George Zimmerman, not the police.

“Since 2016, police have shot over 300 men and women in this country. Some of the names and stories are familiar—Jordan Edwards, Trayvon Martin, Alton Sterling, but hundreds of others are not,” the memo says. Alton Sterling was shot by police while trying to draw his gun during a struggle with officers. The officer who shot Jordan Edwards was fired and indicted.

You know, if you are going to agitate for activism, the least you could do is get your facts right. Then again, when have football players ever let facts get in the way of a good diatribe?

Personally, I hope the league allows this movement. It would surely hasten the NFL’s slow, painful death.

Boycott The NFL

Far be it for me to suggest how someone lives their life – because really, I’m a nobody (less than a nobody) – but after this week’s National Anthem protests, I cannot in good conscience watch, listen to, or otherwise support the National Football League.

The Pittsburgh Steelers will remain in their locker room during the National Anthem ahead of their game Sunday against the Chicago Bears.

To be clear, I have not watched the NFL since 2015, but I’m at a point now where I am tossing anything NFL in the dumpster. The quote The Dark Knight Rises, the league has my permission to die.

The Steelers players made the decision following a meeting with head coach Mike Tomlin. The team will hold a “ceremonial unification” in the locker room during the Anthem. Numerous players for the Jacksonville Jaguars and Baltimore Ravens kneeled during the Anthem prior to their came at Wembley Stadium in London.

The Jaguars and Ravens took a knee during the National Anthem, then stood for God Save the Queen. Buffalo Bills running back LeSean McCoy – the same clown who “allegedly” assaulted Philadelphia police officers in 2016 – sat down and stretched during the Anthem. Many players, including some from the Eagles, raised their fists in a Black Power salute. F**k them all.

My great uncle survived Pearl Harbor. My father was a Philadelphia firefighter. I was raised, correctly, to believe America was the greatest country in the world. I was raised to respect this country and its traditions. As a college graduate, I had many career choices, but I decided to become a police officer to serve my city and its citizens. I swore an oath to the Constitution to uphold the law. I love this country, and the stars and stripes flies on our flagpole daily.

What these billionaires are doing wounds me to the core, and I will do everything in my power to ensure the NFL will not see another dime. It is my sincere hope the NFL suffers mightily for this, and the fans abandon them in droves. /rant.

UPDATE: Disregard my comment below about the Cowboys. Jerry Jones and the team took a knee tonight. F them all. Oh, and the lone Steeler who stood for the Anthem apologized for doing so today, claiming he felt “embarrassed” to be standing… for the National Anthem!

The real solution to this problem can be found below the fold…

A Browns Stain On Humanity

Following in the footsteps of previous NFL players – including their equally untalented hero Colin Kaepernick – many Cleveland Browns players kneeled during the National Anthem last week. The players did so during a nationally-televised game.

Now, a VFW post in Strongsville, Ohio, has responded to the team’s despicable display.

A VFW Post 3345 in Strongsville posted a sign that says it will no longer televise Cleveland Browns games.

“We like our Browns – we love our flag more. Your games will no longer be shown here. God Bless America!”

The decision by a dozen Browns players to kneel during the National Anthem before Monday’s football game has caused a lot of controversy. The protest was the largest in a social-consciousness movement started last season by San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, currently a free agent.

If I am ever passing by VFW Post 3345, drinks are on me.

John McCain-esque “conservative” Hugh Hewitt is a Browns shill, and to date he has not mentioned the protest on his Twitter feed. It’s yet another reason why I despise him and his pollution of my radio airwaves. Actual conservatives believe kneeling during the anthem is disrespectful, but apparently MSNBC “conservatives” feel otherwise.

For my part, I do not regret my boycott of the NFL – which began last year – nor do I miss it. Personally, I hope the Browns never win another game.

This Will Not Sit Well

The NFL preseason has officially begun, and it didn’t take long for the malcontents to start their shit again. This time, it was Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch, who decided to sit for the National Anthem during his first game. Believe it or not, a fellow player spoke out about the move.

Former Blackhawks star and current NBC studio hockey analyst Jeremy Roenick was first to draw attention to what Harrison had to say in the aftermath of Marshawn’s antics.

“The first tweet from Roenick to his 380,000-plus followers was a screen grab of a story from lockerdome.com that featured the headline: Steelers’ James Harrison — ‘Anyone On My Team Sits For Anthem, They Better Be In A Wheelchair‘, according to the tweet which shared a story on the comment Harrison said.

Roenick added in his praise for the statement, “Now this is a man I want on my team! Too bad we have to sit around and watch disrespectful athletes sit on cooler!! Disgraceful!” followed by two thumbs-down emojis.

Bravo James! I still plan on boycotting the NFL this season, but it’s nice to see a few players standing up for what’s right.

Hey Abbott!

texas-governor-greg-abbottEven before the dust settled after Super Bowl LI, an NFL spokesman addressed the media and stated Texas’ pending bathroom law would place future NFL events in jeopardy.

Texas Governor Greg Abbott responded to the threat today in true Texas fashion.

Senate Bill 6 would require transgender people to use restrooms based on their “biological sex” in government buildings, schools and universities.

Oh my god, the horror!

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said the NFL should govern football, not politics. He said that the NFL has its own share of problems, such as players committing acts of violence against women and not standing for the national anthem.

“The last thing the NFL needs to do is to get into the business of telling states how to operate their own political operations,” Abbott said. “The NFL has no business whatsoever trying to get into the politics of various states. The NFL has its own problems that it must fix.”

God bless Texas! You would think after this season’s plummeting ratings, the NFL would shut its collective pie holes.

The sooner the NFL learns they need us more than we need them, this garbage will cease immediately.
