The Conscience of Football

He is someone my grandfather would consider a kindred spirit in a lot of ways, except for that most obvious one.  My grandfather always said that you don’t have to put up with bullshit that you don’t tolerate to begin with.

Interesting is:

Strong has advantages that other coaches don’t: He’s new on the job, meaning he has a honeymoon period; he has tons of recruiting talent all around him in Texas; and he has perhaps more in the way of money and resources than any other head coach in the country. He can afford to make this kind of statement.

On top of that, he has another very obvious advantage.  It’s the one that’s as plain is the nose on your face.  It means that he can get away with disciplining and dismissing blacks without “racism” and “disparate impact” sticking to him.  That’s why he can enforce his core values of “Honesty,” “Respect for women,” “No drugs,” “No stealing” and “No guns” (you may hiss at the last one, but remember you’re dealing with a lot of 19-year old blacks) even though enforcing them disproportionately affects blacks because they disproportionately disobey them.

The one thing he has to worry about is the football cult.  If Texas doesn’t start turning in some impressive seasons soon, then the boosters, alumni and football cultists will push decency out the door.  Or maybe the dream scenario is that Texas football becomes a whitopia, or as much of one that is even possible in the realm of modern major college football.





Barry Called Jesse and Al

That’s a good point that a lot of people, including myself, are noticing.

You’d think the justice brothers brigade would be screaming to high hell.  Truly, there is a disparate impact on blacks that comes of the hoopla about NFL player domestic violence and child abuse.

So why are Jesse and Al silent?  I think it goes something like this:  President Obama used the phone component of his pen and phone to call them both, to tell them to stuff it for awhile, because the media are peddling this hoopla to dog whistle “war on women” to turn out single white women for Democrats in November.  Must not create a wreck at the intersectionality of gender and race in Libtard City during the high traffic hours that are election season.

If my theory is right, then look for the hoopla from the low information news and sports media to die down after November 4.

The handsupdontshoot gang mostly skipped the Dome and showed off around Busch.

Remember, the demographics of MLB game attendees is about as far away from the Fergaza Strip as you can get; practically a whitopia.  It’s what we do when we’re trying not to looksatdem.

This gang has promised to show their asses off big time if we’re in the World Series.  Which is supposed to start on October 21.  I hope for its sake and the sake of getting past what is left of outdoors weather this year that McCulloch milks the Grand Jury process for every day he can, so when they return no criminal charges, it’ll be too cold outside for the ooks to riot, and the St. Louis Cardinals will have already collected their 12th World Series championship with enough time to spare.

 

 





Football Cult

Tallahassee, Florida

Because of this, he’s going to be a clipboard holder for today’s game.

And if the team loses for his absence, guess who the football cultists of Tallahassee are going to blame.  Hint:  It’s not Mr. Winston himself.

Like I’ve been saying, a whole season off.

What I find strange is that this is what gets him suspended, yet questionable conduct relating to a young woman that the Tallahassee P.D. investigated as a rape (and, surprise surprise, the investigation was magically dropped just in time for Winston to get his statue and play in last year’s national championship game), and his purloin of crab legs, weren’t enough to warrant suspensions.

What happens when you cross wires between the Fergaza Strip and the hoopla-driven circus that is the current NFL season?

Right.

And I hope they do.  Apparently this mess isn’t going to get solved without a whole lot more Patterson’s First Axiom.





An Extra Layer on the Hoopla Cake

It’s not enough that the rates of domestic violence and child abuse among NFL players is lower than that for the general population, if you control for race.  Though the problem with that research is that I bet a lot of domestic violence and child abuse among NFL players flies under the radar of the official criminal justice system, because football players can do no wrong.

Someone just needed to get his looksatme in while the iron was hot:

Rev. Jesse Jackson decried the National Football League’s lack of diversity on Tuesday when it appointed three experts – all white – to help shape its policies on domestic violence following the release of a video in which star running back Ray Rice is seen knocking his then-fiancee unconscious.

About two-thirds of the league’s players are black, according to the Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport at the University of Central Florida. NFL director of player engagement and education Deana Garner, who helps lead the league’s domestic violence programs, is black.

With the dork in Orlando with a fax machine in a supporting role.

I’m surprised that JJ hasn’t already complained that the crackdown on NFL player domestic violence isn’t merely an effort to string up black men.  No, none of that — All he seems to care about is that none of the women on the blue ribbon do-nothing panel are black.

That’s right, it’s just another day for you and me in our rights- and equality-obsessed proposition nation.





Big Tough Brave Men

Summit, New Jersey

Says all:

The North Plainfield players said they were so traumatized that their coach had to console them.

“There’s a few tears shed in the locker room,” Valley said.

Poor babies.  This will scar them for life, sort of like PTSD.  They’re going to need lifetime therapy and counseling.

Bet on a ghetto lottery lawsuit.
