BREAKING!! He was FINED $6000 For Supporting CHRISTMAS!!! BOYCOTT NOW!

Published

on

The NFL suffers a season marred by horrible ratings, low attendance at games, and an overall abysmal season regarding fan relations. There have been racist players profanely abusing their platform by disrespecting the American flag by protesting during the National Anthem. There have been players who have no problem raising the black power fist after making a play. Numerous players are getting arrested for violent or drug-related crimes. And there’s been players who’ve killed themselves in prison – all things that Roger Goodell should worry about when it comes to the NFL and public relations. It’s a league filled with numerous criminals, racists, and overly entitled athletes and fans are turning their backs on any given Sunday.

Then a player did something refreshing by celebrating Christmas. A player does something positive in hopes to bring back some of that joy we once experienced by watching football on the weekends. There was nothing better than cracking a cold one with the boys to watching the game with your kids, but ever since the disrespect turned many of us away, it seemed like nothing could bring us back. Running back Alvin Kamara of the New Orleans Saints tried to bring us some joy and the NFL fined him for it.

NEW ORLEANS, LA – DECEMBER 24: Alvin Kamara #41 of the New Orleans Saints wears holiday themed Adidas cleats for a game against the Atlanta Falcons at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on December 24, 2017 in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Kamara wore red shoes that looked like “Santa shoes” during his winning game against the Atlanta Falcons. The league acted like the green Grinch and stole everyone’s Christmas by sending Kamara a naughty little envelope with something not so nice in it. Kamara had a good game that day, regardless of the color of his shoes, and he paid the price for it. That amount was precisely $6,079. That’s right folks! He spent more on a fine than many people earn in a month. He paid THAT much for wearing red shoes during his game.

A league that allows people to desecrate the flag, continue to be employed even though they have criminal records, and nevertheless persist to embarrass the league with putrid social justice warrior nonsense had the nerve to discipline a guy for wearing different color shoes. What about punishing all the people who act in ways that cause ratings to drop? Crime, social justice protests, and overall entitled lousy behavior don’t get a second look from Goodell, but a guy wearing red shoes is the worst thing to happen to the league. In fact, Colin Kaepernick wore socks depicting cops as pigs and no one batted an eye!

I take that back! It wasn’t too long ago that Goodell pledged a ton of money to social justice causes in hopes that people would stop taking a knee, but that failed.

Here’s what Alvin Kamara wrote on Twitter. Before anyone gets all riled up, they should know his GoFundMe comment was a complete joke. He wasn’t using the money to pay for his fine. Some Twitter users misunderstood that or took it seriously. Not everyone was born with a gene that allows them to sense sarcasm.

Hannity reports:
“The “disgraceful” NFL reached a new low this week, fining a professional athlete for wearing red, Christmas-themed cleats during last Sunday’s game while permitting other players to blatantly disrespect the US national anthem and flag.

New Orleans Saints running back Alvin Kamara was fined over $6,000 for his holiday cheer; wearing the footwear to promote a GoFundMe page he created to provide football cleats to underprivileged youth hoping to play the game.

“Unfortunately The Grinch stole Christmas!! After the game I said that I would make a gofundme for the fine and donate the proceeds to charity sooooo…. here we are!” he wrote. “A donation will be made to Willie Hall playgrounds recreational department to provide cleats for their youth football programs.”

We have a very talented Kamara doing something positive, putting the NFL in an excellent newsworthy situation, and the league fines him. An NFL player can punch a woman in an elevator and it’s fine as long as they perform. People can beat their kid with a switch and it’s okay. A guy wears red shoes and he’s the devil of the NFL. Send him a fine! He’s so bad for violating the uniform policy. Kamara indeed violated the uniform policy, but was the fine necessary? Maybe a little fine or a warning, but don’t bill the guy $6k for wearing red shoes and celebrating Christmas.

The NFL could’ve turned this into a positive public relations event. Goodell could’ve had everyone wear red shoes for the Christmas weekend games and celebrate with good vibes, but the league continues to disappoint the audience.

Instead, the Grinch who ruined the league strikes again.

Goodell needs to GO. He’s a weak leader responsible for allowing the league ratings to suffer by permitting players to abuse their platform and attack America.

Gay Olympian Issues NASTY Ultimatum To Trump – Gets WORST News Of His Life 24Hrs Later

SHOULD HAVE KEPT YOUR MOUTH SHUT!

Published

on

The winter Olympics is just around the corner and we’re already learning that the games aren’t going to go happen without being an anti-Trump affair. These athletes should have taken note of the devastating impact mixing politics with sports had on the National Football League but instead decided to ruin it for themselves and everyone else. Heading off the anti-Trump attacks first was 33-year-old Gold Medalist skier, Lindsey Vonn. She’s since slipped into obscurity but there was someone not far behind willing to take the disrespectful torch from her in trashing Trump. Like Vonn, it didn’t take long for the gay Olympic ice skater to receive his “prize” for disrespecting the president.

It’s strange how athletes have no problem using Trump to bring attention to themselves by making such bold public statements, for how much they hate him. What’s even odder, is that they never seem to learn their lesson and can’t stop themselves from slandering him, regardless of the massive ramifications. The latest “victim” of this stupidity is Adam Rippon, the 2016 U.S. men’s figure skating champion who just got what he earned when he opened his mouth and made a disgusting public declaration about Trump.

“Members of the US Olympic Team represent our country on the biggest sports stage in the world, but one athlete says he will not under any circumstance meet the Present or the Vice President. Why? Because he’s gay and LGBTers hate America when it’s not run by a progressive douche,” Brian Anderson reported for Downtrend. “Seriously, this uptight gay athlete is taking something that is supposed to be apolitical and about competition and sportsmanship and turning into a bitchy Resistance moment.”

The athlete flew into a typical liberal temper tantrum for attention. USA Today reports:

Adam Rippon, the 2016 U.S. men’s figure skating champion who is believed to be the first openly gay U.S. Winter Olympian, criticized the White House’s selection of Vice President Mike Pence to lead the 2018 U.S. Olympic delegation to South Korea in a phone interview with USA TODAY Sports Tuesday night.

“You mean Mike Pence, the same Mike Pence that funded gay conversion therapy? I’m not buying it,” said Rippon.

Not buying what? The fact that Mike Pence is the VP or that he’s leading the US Olympic delegation? Either way, it’s a reality. Another reality is that Mike Pence never “funded” gay conversion therapy, so this guy is as full of shit as any anti-Trump idiot out there.

Rippon, 28, who was selected to his first Olympic team earlier this month after finishing fourth at the U.S. national championships, said that he would prefer not to meet Pence during the traditional meet-and-greet between the official delegation and U.S. athletes in the hours leading to the opening ceremony.

“If it were before my event, I would absolutely not go out of my way to meet somebody who I felt has gone out of their way to not only show that they aren’t a friend of a gay person but that they think that they’re sick. I wouldn’t go out of my way to meet somebody like that,” Rippon said.

It’s funny when these people spout off like this thinking they are going to get a standing ovation and instead come out looking like losers, which was the case with Rippon. Trump doesn’t care if he comes to the White House because the president has far more support from the American people that this figure skater who lost all that support when he slammed our leadership. The most ironic part of it all, is that Trump has actually done more for the gay community than Barack Obama.

Also, in making these really divisive remarks, he actually proved himself has being totally intolerant while criticizing Trump for supposedly not being tolerant. It’s such silly irony that only liberals are capable of creating. However, he wasn’t done with his verbal vomit and doubled down with what he said next that really proved just how crazy he is.

“I don’t think he has a real concept of reality. To stand by some of the things that Donald Trump has said and for Mike Pence to say he’s a devout Christian man is completely contradictory,” Rippon added. “If he’s okay with what’s being said about people and Americans and foreigners and about different countries that are being called ‘shitholes,’ I think he should really go to church.”

Of course Mike Pence is morally against homosexuality as a devout Christian and he does goes to church, which the skater would have known if he could see past his sequins. Just because you’re morally against something, doesn’t mean that you treat people different or with any less respect, and Pence proves that – Rippon, on the other hand, does not.

“I don’t think the current administration represents the values that I was taught growing up. Mike Pence doesn’t stand for anything that I really believe in,” Rippon added just for sake of sounding like he knew what he was talking about, but proved he does not. Our current administration absolutely represents everything our country was built upon, those core values of our Constitution, which this figure skater must have forgotten after eight years of “leadership” from a president who actually didn’t represent the values of this country.

Just like Vonn alienated herself from a massive fan base of proud Americans who watch sports, Rippong has now just done the same. Do these athletes never look at the failures before them and take note of the demise? They seem perpetually intent on destroying they’re reputations instead in their ongoing quest to destroy Trump’s.

BREAKING!! Star QB Found DEAD!!! Huge Loss…

Published

on

Not many details have been released. But we have now gotten confirmation the sports world has lost an up and coming superstar this morning.

Tyler Hilinski, who was the new 21-year-old freshman superstar quarterback for the Michigan State football team was found unresponsive in his apartment after police conducted a welfare check at his home following his failure to show up for practice on Monday and Tuesday of this week.

A statement from the Pullman Police department confirmed they entered Hilinski’s residence and discovered the starting quarterback dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head. Next to him was the rifle he used.

Washington State head coach Mike Leach released a statement saying “We are deeply saddened to learn of the news of Tyler’s passing. He was an incredible young man and everyone who had the privilege of knowing him was better for it. The entire WSU community mourns as thoughts and prayers go out to his family.”

Fox News reported:

Hilinski, a redshirt sophomore, was set to take over the starting quarterback job next season for the departing Luke Falk. Hilinski started the team’s Holiday Bowl loss to Michigan State because Falk was unable to play due to a wrist injury.

Hilinski appeared in eight games during his sophomore season, throwing for 1,176 yards and seven touchdowns. His most memorable game came in the second week of the season when he led Washington State from a 21-point deficit in the fourth quarter to beat Boise State 47-44 in triple overtime. Hilinski threw for 240 yards and three touchdowns coming off the bench.

What an utter waste of a promising life which could have gone on to affect many in a positive way, I guess now we will never know. All we can do now is pray for him, his family and his friends in this moment of tragic loss.

Recognize the Warning Signs of Suicide

SUICIDE WARNING — Depression carries a high risk of suicide. Anybody who expresses suicidal thoughts or intentions should be taken very seriously. Do not hesitate to call your local suicide hotline immediately. Call 800-SUICIDE (800-784-2433) or 800-273-TALK (800-273-8255) or the deaf hotline at 800-799-4889.

The best way to minimize the risk of suicide is to know the risk factors and to recognize the warning signs of suicide. Take these signs seriously. Know how to respond to them. It could save someone’s life.

How Prevalent Is Suicide?

Suicide is a potentially preventable public health problem. In 2014, the last year for which statistics are available, suicide was the 10th leading cause of death in the U.S. That year, there were nearly 43,000 suicides, and 1.3 million adults attempted suicide, according to the CDC. Suicide is the second leading cause of death in people from age 10 to age 34.

Men take their lives nearly four times the rate of women, accounting for 78% of suicides in the U.S.

Are There Risk Factors for Suicide?
Risk factors for suicide vary by age, gender, and ethnic group. And risk factors often occur in combinations.

Over 90% of people who die by suicide have clinical depression or another diagnosable mental disorder. Many times, people who die by suicide have an alcohol or substance abuse problem. Often they have that problem in combination with other mental disorders.

Adverse or traumatic life events in combination with other risk factors, such as clinical depression, may lead to suicide. But suicide and suicidal behavior are never normal responses to stress.

Other risk factors for suicide include:

One or more prior suicide attempts
Family history of mental disorder or substance abuse
Family history of suicide
Family violence
Physical or sexual abuse
Keeping firearms in the home
Chronic physical illness, including chronic pain
Incarceration
Exposure to the suicidal behavior of others
Are There Warning Signs of Suicide?
Warning signs that someone may be thinking about or planning to commit suicide include:

Always talking or thinking about death
Clinical depression — deep sadness, loss of interest, trouble sleeping and eating — that gets worse
Having a “death wish,” tempting fate by taking risks that could lead to death, such as driving fast or running red lights
Losing interest in things one used to care about
Making comments about being hopeless, helpless, or worthless
Putting affairs in order, tying up loose ends, changing a will
Saying things like “it would be better if I wasn’t here” or “I want out”
Sudden, unexpected switch from being very sad to being very calm or appearing to be happy
Talking about suicide or killing one’s self
Visiting or calling people to say goodbye
Be especially concerned if a person is exhibiting any of these warning signs and has attempted suicide in the past. According to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, between 20% and 50% of people who commit suicide have had a previous attempt.

What Should I Do if Someone I Know Shows Warning Signs of Suicide?
First, if someone you know appears to be depressed and is contemplating suicide, take that person seriously. Listen to what he or she is saying. Take the initiative to ask that person what he or she is planning. But don’t attempt to argue him or her out of committing suicide. Rather, let the person know that you care and understand and are listening. Avoid statements like: “You have so much to live for.” And ask if the person has sought help from a medical or mental professional, or if he is currently being treated by a mental health professional.

If someone you know appears to be depressed and talks about suicide, makes a suicidal gesture, or attempts suicide, take it as a serious emergency. Listen to the person, but don’t try to argue with him or her. Seek immediate help from a health care professional.

People who experience a major depressive episode are often suicidal. It is a key symptom of the disease. Some studies show that the neurotransmitter serotonin plays a central role in the neurobiology of suicide. Researchers have found lower levels of serotonin in the brainstem and cerebrospinal fluid of suicidal individuals.

In addition, suicidal behavior sometimes runs in families. Remember, any talk of suicide is always an emergency. Have the person talk with a health care professional immediately.

Where Can I Get Help for Suicide and Depression?

Encourage a suicidal or depressed person to seek the help of a mental health professional. Because the person may feel so hopeless that they may not think it’s possible to be helped, you’ll probably have to be persistent and go with that person.

If your loved one appears to be in imminent danger of committing suicide, do not leave him or her alone. Remove any weapons or drugs he or she could use. Accompany him or her to the nearest emergency room or call 911.

During treatment, be supportive. Help the person remember to take antidepressants or other prescribed medications and to continue any other therapy that’s been prescribed.

Why do people who seem to have it all do this to themselves? Where are the friends and family in all this equation? Tyler Hilinski had his whole life ahead of him. And a promising life too. Yet he decided to take the easy way out. Now we will never know what he could have been, maybe the next Joe Montana or Tom Brady. Or maybe he would have been a doctor and saved many lives instead. Now we will never know.

Please share if you agree we need more Suicide Awareness…

Suicide is not a joke, it’s permanent, and sometimes you have absolutely no warning when someone attempts to take their own lives. Please, take every threat, mention, or joke about doing so serious, and if you or anyone you know is struggling with personal issues that may lead to suicidal thoughts, please call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).

BREAKING!!! Alabama Player Just Made DISGUSTING ANNOUNCEMENT!

Published

on

As most everyone has already heard by now Alabama Ball Tosser Bo Scarbrough took it upon himself to attack our President as he was walking out of the locker room before the start of the 2018 NCAA football championship game.

Now, if you listen to the video you can hear someone saying “F### Trump.”

But Scarborough is now taking a step back after the huge uproar he is facing.

Here is the kicker. This ball tosser is now saying he said “F### Georgia.” But if you listen to the video again you will notice whatever word he said after “F###” is a one-syllable word like the word “Trump,” not a two syllable word like “Georgia.” So I really don’t understand how this can all be just a misunderstanding.

But now we are starting to understand why he is denying his comment.

It has now been confirmed by multiple news outlets that Bo Scarbrough will enter the NFL draft this year. Today local sports media reported that the Alabama running back has indeed signed with a sports marketing company and he is “heading to the NFL draft.” This report comes just two days after Alabama beat Georgia in overtime in Atlanta to win the national championship.

Scarbrough had an impressive 4 carries for 23 yards in that game although his season-high total this fall came when he had 79 yards on 11 carries in a victory against Vanderbilt in September.

Scarbrough is 6-foot-2, 235 pounds, had 124 carries for 596 yards with 8 touchdowns this season. In three seasons at Alabama, the native of Northport, Ala., has totaled 1,512 yards rushing with 20 touchdowns. His best season with the Crimson Tide came when he had 812 yards rushing with 11 touchdowns in 2016.

Via The Undefeated:

We may have seen the last of Colin Kaepernick in the NFL
If Seattle doesn’t want the quarterback, where can he turn?

Colin Kaepernick may never play in the NFL again. Let that sink in. A mobile, 29-year-old quarterback who in the past five seasons started in two NFC championship games and one Super Bowl and amassed a touchdowns-to-interceptions ratio that ranks among the best in NFL history is out of the league without an apparent opening to get back in.

The prospect that Kaepernick’s NFL career could be finished became real this week after the Seattle Seahawks passed on signing the politically active player as a backup and instead added Austin Davis to their roster.

In picking Davis over Kaepernick, who has been seeking work since he opted out of his deal with the San Francisco 49ers ahead of free agency in March, Seattle chose a journeyman who has failed to establish himself as a viable NFL passer in stints with the Los Angeles Rams, Cleveland Browns and Denver Broncos. Davis didn’t even appear in a game last season.

During a recent radio interview, head coach Pete Carroll said the Seahawks were considering Kaepernick to play behind starter Russell Wilson. The Seahawks and Kaepernick reportedly met in late May. Then Seattle signed Davis, even though Carroll said he believes that Kaepernick is a starter in the NFL. Seattle’s decision reportedly had nothing to do with money.

There’s only one logical takeaway: The Seahawks were concerned about potential fan backlash for signing Kaepernick, who ignited a nationwide debate by choosing not to stand during the national anthem — first sitting, then kneeling — in an effort to draw attention to the oppression of black people and people of color.

For some time, some African-American players have expressed anger that, in their opinion, Kaepernick is effectively being blackballed by owners because of his political stance. And there’s ample evidence to support that argument:

Far less accomplished signal-callers have signed with new teams, Davis being the most recent.
Owners have criticized Kaepernick’s form of protest and cautioned that a team that signed him could encounter major problems with its fan base.

President Donald Trump has gone in on Kaepernick as well.
But something changed Monday. It felt like a new line was crossed. The Seahawks’ decision sent a loud message that the NFL could be completely done with Kaepernick.

If Kaepernick isn’t wanted by a playoff contender even though his skills are well-suited for its offense, where can he turn? Both Wilson and Kaepernick are dual-threat quarterbacks. By design, Wilson is on the move often. Kaepernick seemed to be an ideal fit for the Seahawks, especially considering their concerns at the position behind Wilson, who hasn’t missed a start in his five-year career but played through a variety of injuries last season.

Kaepernick has not been charged with a crime. He has not been accused of violating any aspect of the league’s collective bargaining agreement. He’s done nothing more than exercise his right to protest peacefully, which is protected by the Constitution. Yet, Seahawks decision-makers found it more palatable to potentially entrust their team, with the current roster’s shrinking championship window, to guys better suited to be third-stringers than Kaepernick, who at the very least has shown he’s capable of being better than any primary backup on the league’s 32 teams.

Kaepernick has experience (he has made 58 starts) and has the fifth-best touchdowns-to-interceptions ratio of all time. In that statistic, Kaepernick is better than Steve Young, Peyton Manning and Tony Romo, to name a few. NFL coaches want quarterbacks with experience who take care of the football. Suddenly, it doesn’t seem to matter that Kaepernick can check both boxes.

Even playing for the horrid 49ers last season — their roster is in the process of being overhauled by new management — Kaepernick showed big-play ability. San Francisco receivers had the second-highest percentage of dropped passes in the league. Still, Kaepernick completed almost 60 percent of his passes (59.2). He passed for 16 touchdowns and had only four interceptions.

Had the Seahawks signed Kaepernick, they would have added a player who, just like Wilson, has thrived on designed quarterback running plays.

Kaepernick has rushed for 2,300 yards (with a 6.1-yard average) and 13 touchdowns. Kaepernick and Wilson are great on zone-read plays, which are QB runs from a spread option formation that includes a lead blocker. They’ve both displayed outstanding decision-making while having to either run or hand off to backs based on the pursuit of the defense, “and if a team is running that type of offense, and Kaep is 100 committed to being the best he can in that type of scheme, it makes a ton of sense to bring him in,” an NFC offensive play-caller said.

That’s what the Seahawks passed on.

From a football standpoint, picking Davis over Kaepernick made no sense. Of course, the Seahawks’ decision wasn’t based on anything that had to do with football. That’s why what happened Monday was so chilling.

Any quarterback with Kaepernick’s career arc and touchdowns-to-interceptions ratio, at his age, would likely be on a roster if not for owners’ feelings about his protest. At this point, to argue otherwise would simply be illogical. The signing of Davis proved that.

Please share if you want the NFL to ignore Scarsbrough just as they have ignored Kaepernick.
