TRAGEDY Strikes NFL Star’s Home After What Was Just Found On The Driveway – This is Really Bad…

This is heartbreaking.

Published

on

Possibly the scariest thing about having children is the feeling that part of your heart is running around outside of your body. No matter how hard you try, you can never fully protect them. Somehow it’s both the most incredible and terrifying experience of any parent’s life, and yet it’s somehow seeing their shining little faces smile up at you makes it all worth it. This, among other reasons, is why a parent should never outlive a child. There’s an unimaginable pain that cripples a person to know that they were in some way unable to fulfill the task given to them by God to protect one of His tiny humans.

For this reason, we ask that your thoughts and prayers go out to former Baltimore Ravens tight end Todd Heap as he and his family deal with an incredible tragedy. This retired football star and his family are broken because of this event that has no doubt changed their lives.

Via Daily Mail:

“Retired NFL tight end Todd Heap accidentally ran over and killed his three-year-old daughter while moving his truck on Friday.

Mesa, Arizona police responded to the accident on 7600 block of East Summit Trail at 3.45pm according to AZCentral. 

The little girl was in a driveway when Heap, 37, pulled forward and ran over his youngest child. She later died at a local hospital.

Police say there were no signs of impairment and the investigation is ongoing. Heap and his wife Ashley have four children. 

Heap played 10 seasons with the Baltimore Ravens and two seasons with the Arizona Cardinals. He retired in 2012 and is a native of Mesa. 

He was first-round draft pick in 2001 after he played for Arizona State University.” 

Via Baltimore Ravens:

“The Ravens organization released the following statement: 

‘We cannot imagine the heartbreak and sorrow Todd and Ashley’s family feels right now. This is knee-buckling news and an overwhelmingly sad tragedy. Our prayers, our thoughts and our hearts are with the Heaps, who have contributed so much to the Ravens and Baltimore community. 

‘We believe their deep faith and tremendous support from friends and family will help them through this unimaginable time.’ 

Heap, 37, is a tremendous family man, and he and his wife Ashley also have another daughter and three young sons.

The Washington Post remembers an interview that Heap did about a year and a half ago:

“In December 2015, he was asked by the Ravens’ website, ‘What makes Todd Heap smile?’ He replied, ‘I just got done jumping on the trampoline with my two-year-old daughter, and it’s hard to get a bigger smile than that. … Family and all of the events we do, that regularly makes me smile.'”

Children bring light and music and inversely without them there’s a deafening silence and darkness that is hard to escape. No doubt this family will try many things to distract themselves, but I hope those around them will understand that this isn’t a moment in time, it’s a change in direction for their lives. I’ve heard those who’ve gone through a similar situation say that there really is no “getting over it.” This will be their new reality for as long as their memory lasts.

What this family needs are people to rally around them and listen to them for as long as they feel the need to vent it. It might take some time to talk, but there will be a lot of memories and a lot of things that need to be said. They will probably try to figure out what went wrong or grieve over the part of themselves that they will never get back and the lifetime of hopes and dreams that ended that day. I hope they are able to find friends who will lift them up in prayers and be there when they need to remember that their little girl’s memory lives on.

Having a kid in your life can make you brave and give you a reason to reach high and add dimension and color to your life that you didn’t know existed. The removal of that incredible life force is something that deserves as many prayers, remembrances and as much support as your place in the parent’s life warrants. So tonight, I ask everyone reading this to go home tonight and hold your children close and thank God for what they mean to you. Keep a close watch on them, but today and every day you remember the Heap family, please say a prayer for them.

Racist Protesting Player Just Got Blindsided With BRUTAL Karma Have Tackling Ref In Fit Of Rage

Published

on

One of the overpaid NFL players from the Raiders made a huge mistake in “Thursday Night Football” when his team battled the Kansas City Chiefs. During a play that saw one of his players take a hit and a melee break out, Marshawn Lynch ran on the field and got involved in a scuffle with a referee. Running on the field, when you’re not supposed to, is a huge problem and this overpaid athelte ran out and pushed a referee. Now he’s facing fines and possible suspensions that will cost him almost more than $100,000, which is more than what some people earn in two years. No one feels bad about that, right?

Kevin Seifert from NFL Nation reported on ESPN’s website that “Raiders RB Marshawn Lynch could be looking at a loss of more than $100,000 for that ridiculous display. First, Lynch is subject to a minimum fine of $30,387 for making contact with an official during that melee. That he came off the bench to join the fight makes him a candidate to be suspended, as well. That would cost him a game check of $79,411.”

Marshawn Lynch gets paid $79,411 per game, which is $79,411 more than this disrespectful football player deserves. Marshawn Lynch is constantly protesting the flag, embarrassing his team, and he’s not even a good player anymore. His stats for the year are horrible. He should’ve stayed retired and went about his business, but he wanted to come back and ruin a team with a paltry stat line that even Colin Kaepernick could muster up.

To watch a grown man push a referee like that is abominable. The referees are off limits. If there’s one person you don’t hit during a sports fight, then it’s always the referee. You always respect the referee and keep your hands off them no matter what. They’re underpaid and dealing with grown up crybabies, so have some respect.

Watch the video of Marshawn Lynch running onto the field, from the sideline, getting into it with a referee, and giving the ref a shove.

What did he think this was, a protest? If Marshawn Lynch wants to push some uncivilized Nazis around at a KKK meeting, then be my guest (that would be awesome) – but don’t ever touch the referee because that is straight up disrespectful thuggish behavior. And now comes the consequence of Lynch’s disgusting behavior.

There are unwritten rules to live by. One of them is to not beat up the person trying to break up the fight. That’s a code of the streets. The only people who break those codes, no matter what color they might be, are simply uncivilized.

To watch Marshawn Lynch run on the field like there’s going to be a bench-clearing brawl was embarrassing. Does he think his teammates can’t handle themselves? There’s 11 of them on the field already and they’ve got it under control. But there goes almost $100k just to make himself into a viral video. This was a step below his lame duck “Everybody vs Trump shirt,” and about equal to his sad protests of the American Flag in which he exhibits a racist mentality.

Rodney King asked if we could all get along. We were getting along fine whenever we took our hats off and stood for the National Anthem together during football games. Fans and players who hate each other would put their rivalry aside for the few moments it took to sing the National Anthem and then they would rip each other’s heads off as soon as the song was over. You could play the anthem in the middle of a football game fist fight and the people would respect the flag and then beat the snot out of each other.

But then people started throwing up black power fists and taking a knee for the flag. Looks like Marshawn Lynch better get on both knees and beg that he’s not suspended if he wants to keep his money. If he’s suspended, then I guess he can hang out sitting down or on both knees during the games he could miss.

From the looks of this picture, it seems like the Raiders staff is trying to hide Lynch and his protest. IJR reported that “Lynch has become one of the most visible faces in the controversial national anthem protest movement in the NFL. At one point, Raiders staff actually tried to hide Lynch’s sit-down protest from the cameras.”

Hollywood and football are suffering through some hard times with low ratings. It’s hard to believe they haven’t learned their lesson yet. People don’t want any politics mixed in with their entertainment. They are not politicians. They are not voices of and for the public. They are entertainers and they should stick to their job and stay in their lane.

I do my job, so why can’t they do theirs?

Anti-American Spurs Just Enraged Every Fan With HUGE Message They Broadcasted Before Their Last Game

Published

on

Prior to the year 2017, being a professional athlete was about your ability to play your chosen game and how much you’d help your team achieve victory. The rise of the social justice warrior on the playing fields (or courts) has put that to an end though. Every player is now considered both on their athletic ability and the political views that they bring with them.

The problem of politics is no longer relegated to the NFL since the NBA and other leagues are getting in on the fun. The NB is taking a much firmer stance, with the NBA Commissioner making it clear that he expects his players to stand for the anthem. Many have still chosen to lock arms in an apparent show of solidarity with their protesting counterparts in the NFL, however so far no kneeling.

San Antonio Spurs head coach Gregg Popovic has been loudly anti-Trump at every turn, and couldn’t resist the opportunity to make his political feelings known in a pre-game show against the Minnesota Timberwolves. According to The Hill, the coach is trying to make sure that his message gets out, even if they’re banned from kneeling like the NFL players are doing:

“The San Antonio Spurs called for ‘real change’ and equality in a pro-social justice message before their game against the Minnesota Timberwolves Wednesday night.

Both NBA teams stood for the national anthem, then linked arms as a slideshow played across the Jumbotron calling for unity and ‘equal opportunity for education, and economic advancement regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or religion.’

‘There are things happening in our communities that need our attention,’ the message read, according to ESPN. ‘We understand your desire to attend our games as an escape and chosen form of entertainment. In that, we feel there is a significant commonality in all of us that allows our community to be so special. … It is our hope that we can, as a community, inspire and evoke real change. We ask that you join with us in your daily lives in the pursuit of equality. And in that, we honor our country by exercising demands for what this great nation has promised and what our military continues to fight for.’

So essentially, they understand what you want, they hear what you’ve asked for, but they decided that pushing their political agenda was more important, even if it alienates their fans. Apparently, any place that cameras are present is a good enough platform for the social justice warriors/athletes of today.

According to Popovich, the message was “warmly received” by the crowd who attended Wednesday’s game. However, considering his overt disdain for the President and everything that our country was founded on, it’s unlikely that any other response would have been accepted or reported by the biased coach.

Popovich has got so far as to call President Trump a “soulless coward” in a recent interview when asked his opinion on a political issue. It’s unclear why this basketball coach thinks that he’s on par with the President of the United States, but he obviously wants to make his voice heard.

In contrast to the socially aware statements being made by the Spurs, the Dallas Mavericks with Mark Cuban at the helm made a very different impression on guests at their game. Yahoo Sports reported that the video that aired before the Mav’s home game against the Hawks was one that had a clearly patriotic theme.

The video the Mavericks aired before Wednesday’s home opener against the Atlanta Hawks featured the images of many players, past and present, but no direct messages about the issues of police brutality against people of color and racial inequality, which have been at the heart of athlete demonstrations begun last year by Colin Kaepernick in the NFL and continued thereafter by players in other sports leagues. Rather, the ‘tribute video’ featured first-person narrative from the perspective of the American flag, delivered over a backing track in the style of early Arcade Fire.”

Cuban is also outspokenly anti-Trump but he knows that that has nothing to do with the respect that is owed the flag. Cuban, like President Trump, has made billions by working hard in a country that still rewards hard work. No matter what you think about individuals or small groups, the flag still stands for freedom and equality, and thankfully there are those who still support it.

“’I see a city and country where the people respect me for who I am and what I represent,’ the personified flag says in the video. ‘I am this country’s common ground: the most recognizable symbol in the world.’

The ‘ultra-patriotic’ video was, in Cuban’s words, ‘a proactive effort to recognize that [the flag is] an important symbol for this country, but we’re also going to recognize that what it stands for is the right for people to disagree and to stand up for your beliefs.’”

Everyone is allowed to have an opinion, and unless their bosses require differently, they’re even allowed to share those opinions at work. However, if we want to retain our rights and freedoms, we should absolutely take those anti-American sentiments personally. Evil will prevail if we don’t take a stand against it.

Right After NFL Legend Mike Ditka SLAMS Obama As ‘Worst President In History’ He Gets NASTY Surprise

Published

on

Being a conservative in TV isn’t good for your career. In fact, you don’t even have to be a conservative, you just have to be a free thinker that isn’t willing to drink the liberal kool-aid, and the powers that be will find a way to make sure that you’re either forced our or completely discredited.

This has become especially true in the Trump era where those in the media consider it their mission to make sure they poison every American with what comes through their TV’s and radios. The problem has even spread to sportscasters and is getting worse since the rapid growth of the NFL’s National Anthem protest. The one and only acceptable move on the part of many of these networks’ anchors is to do the politically correct thing and support the protesters.

This isn’t a rule that everyone is okay with. In fact, at least one former ESPN panelist just wasn’t having it. Mike Ditka proved that he’s willing to put his money where his mouth is, where his  viewpoints opinion just cost him a very coveted position at ESPN, according to the Patriot Chronicle:

“Just one week after making a disparaging remark against Barack Obama, NFL legend Mike Ditka has been removed from his position as a panelist for ESPN’s Sunday NFL Countdown.

Appearing on WABC’s The Bernie & Sid Show, Ditka pointed out that Obama was not a leader. In fact, the NFL Superbowl champion pointed out, Obama was worst president that the country had ever had.On the bright side, Ditka did say that Obama would be fun to play golf with, an activity that the president had been able to enjoy repeatedly, even when he heard the news that American soldiers are being killed in Afghanistan. Nothing seemed to interrupt the golf swing of the former community organizer.”

Dikta didn’t get to where he is in life by mincing words, and he isn’t about to start now. Someone asked him his opinion and he gave it. This happened a little over a year ago even before the widespread National Anthem protest picked up so much steam. The fact that ESPN was trying, even before all of this, to silence any voice that made a political statement that they didn’t agree with gives us an idea of how we got into this mess.

It’s no a secret that Ditka is a politically opinionated individual. He has been very open about his frustration with current officials and even considered doing something about it and running for office.

“Mike Ditka almost ran for U.S. Senator in 2004 against, then candidate, Barack Obama, to replace Jack Ryan. Ryan had stepped out of the race after sealed court records from his divorce began to seep out to the media.

Though Ryan’s actual divorce papers had been made public, both he and his former wife Jeri Ryan agreed to keep the custody records private out of respect for their child.

After winning the primary, Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert Schnider decided, despite both parents wanting the custody papers to remain sealed, that he would overturn that decision and make the documents available to the public.

Although candidate Obama called for the records to remain out of the race, allegations were thrown that it was Obama-backers who were feeding the information to the press.”

An extremely convenient win for the Obama campaign for sure. It’s easy to see that Dikta is one of the many conservatives that are held to a different standard than other people in their same position. ESPN makes a show of putting sports first, but this, plus all the coverage and commentary that has covered the anthem protest would point to them putting their politics first.

To be clear, putting your politics first isn’t wrong, it’s just a little underhanded to pretend that you only care about sports when you’re also trying to endorse liberals and shut down conservatives.

“Ditka, who considers himself to be a Conservative, said in a 2013 interview that the biggest mistake of his life was not running against Barack Obama in 2004, lamenting that if he had won, Obama would probably not have gotten to the White House.

He’s not a leader. This country needs leadership. It needs direction. It needs somebody that steps up front.”

While most on the outside looking in can see that the United States needs a unifying force, companies like ESPN and the others in the mainstream media seem bound and determined to continue to divide us by whatever means necessary. If that means shutting down the voice of a Super Bowl-winning coach in favor of the younger Antifa and BLM supporters, they’re apparently willing to do that.

ESPN seems to not be satisfied until they go the way of the NFL; tanked ratings, lost money and a slippery slope into irrelevance.
