Although the 49ers signed COLIN KAEPERNICK to a massive contract three years ago (61 Million guaranteed) he is on the backside of his career. He has little chance to start for the 49ers and sitting is likely his “position” for the foreseeable future. Maybe he sensed that he was more suited to sit than stand, so he decided to sit for the National Anthem. I’m being simplistic of course – he decided that people of “color” are systemically oppressed so he won’t stand for the National Anthem or stand for the flag. If anyone is curious about what he thinks, just read his twitter feed. He’s bought into all of the conspiracy theories about cop violence and believes that cops are murdering blacks for sport and getting away with it.Several studies have published recently that refute this BLM theory of wholesale murder of blacks by white cops. In fact according to studies, Black cops are more likely to pull a gun on blacks than white cops. A study by a Black professor found no systemic racial bias by white cops, but those are just inconvenient facts that Kaepernick ignores.
Kaepernick is really fond of some black nationalists and race-baters too. And, he’s re-tweeted garbage about Nat Turner being a hero. Remember Nat Turner? He was a slave in 1835, who saw visions and according to Turner, God told him to murder whites. So, he murdered whites and not just slavers and slave owners, but anyone with white skin. Turner and his followers slaughtered everyone with white skin including innocent white children. And they murdered them with axes. Why? Becuase they had white skin. Well Kaepernick thinks Nat Turner is a black hero because he was a slave who “broke his bonds”. He ignores the fact that Turner was also a blood-soaked psychopath. That’s the Colin Kaepernick you’ll know from reading his twitter feed.
GOODELL has ultimate and unfettered power to demand a Witch Trial even when the only evidence in support is the unsupported ramblings of guy who retracted what he said. And who’s to blame? Well, sure, Goodell for treating his office like he’s the Chief Inquisitor, where players must prove innocence rather than Goodell proving guilt – but the real culprit is the Players Association.
The PA allowed Goodell to be judge, jury and often executioner. PA is to blame for empowering a despot, for without the PA signing that awful agreement he wouldn’t have this power to use.
REMEMBER WHEN THE USSR would send athletes to the Olympics and they looked like manufactured humanoid robots? The women looked like dudes and the guys looked freakish. I could swear that some of the swimmers had gills. All of them were “pros” in the sense that they were paid by the Commies to perform and win – at all costs.
No one that wasn’t blind doubted that they were juiced. The IOC finally cracked down and got better at testing for PEDs. The Commies medal count fell, then the Commie Empire fell, but that didn’t stop the Russians from cheating. This Summer the Russians were banned from the Rio Olympics for various sports and now the Paralympics have totally banned Russia from the Para-games because they are doping, their handicapped athletes. Wrap your head around that – a country is doping athletes to win at para-games. You have to be a special kind of awful to dope handicapped athletes to beat other handicapped athletes, but that’s Russia, they don’t give a shit about rules, they just want to win…
RYAN LOCHTE was too drunk to consider the ramifications of tearing down a Motor Oil Poster while black-out drunk. He likely can’t spell ramifications, maybe not even black-out – but the aftermath should have been obvious to even an addled Ryan Lochte. If you are a Sponsored Athlete, get black-out drunk and trash a local gas station but pay for the damages and immediately admit that you used poor judgment, you likely won’t lose your endorsements. If, on the other hand, you trash a local gas station refused to act contrite, lie to your mother then lie to the press, you’re likely going to lose your sugar daddy sponsors; and that’s what has happened to Lochte.
Sponsors, endorse people to make money. If you’re an idiot and act badly you’re going to lose your endorsements. Maybe Lochte should consider A Bail Bondsman perhaps an endorsement deal with a Rehab Center. A business article I read put his endorsement contracts in the 2.5 Million per year category, and they are all leaving – so the poster Lochte tore off that wall will likley cost him 3 – 5 million if not more.
The coverup is often worse than the thing being covered up… Lochte is about to be covered up in Sponsor discontent.
LOS ANGELES WANTS THE OLYMPICS. There are other cities that want the Olympics too. My suggestion for LA. Shrink-Wrap plenty of money put it on an unmarked cargo plane headed to the home offices of the IOC in Lausanne Switzerland… Just sayin — you might be the “winning bid”.
If it acts like a crook and quacks like a crook….
BARRING SOME NASTY J EDGAR HOOVER file on Rams Owner Stan Kroenke, why does Jeff Fisher have a job and continue to hold his job as Rams’ Head Coach.
YOU CAN’T GET DUMBER than being a celebrity, pretending your were robbed, then going on National and International TV and repeating the lie. Did Lochte really think that Rio’s Police wouldn’t investigate this… maybe look at video? Ask the Cabby if there was a robbery? Ryan Lochte might be the dumbest athlete on the planet.
