I don’t get it.
If the mob did tell Sonny Liston to take a fall, this must mean they had some leverage over him.
But I don’t know what they would have had.
The only thing I can think of is that maybe he racked up a lot of dope debt and the mob would settle his payables in exchange for him taking the fall versus Clay/Ali.
Spot the contradiction.
Michael Sam ready for NFL challenge
Sporting a rainbow “Stand with Sam,” on his combine gear, the former Missouri defensive end said he’s ready to tackle any and all issues that come with the questions about him as a football player, as well as a football player who happens to be gay.
“And I just wish you guys would see me as Michael Sam, the football player, instead of Michael Sam, the gay football player.”
He can’t have it both ways. If he would not have come out, or kept his orientation a secret, he’d just be “OL 42″ at the combine.
In related news, the Brooklyn Nets have signed the supposedly gay Jason Collins to a short term contract, which means when the Nets play the Lakers tonight in Los Angeles, he’ll be the first openly (supposedly) gay professional athlete in one of the four major American sports leagues. Of course you know why they did it, they wanted to beat whichever NFL team drafts Michael Sam to the civil rightsey punch. That and the Nets want to sell boatloads of Nets’ Jason Collins #98 jerseys to LGBTQMIAPDLOLPLPLTH. Of course, the fake gay Collins is wearing 98 to commemorate the year 1998, when Matthew Shepard was murdered in a crime that was not an anti-gay hate crime. (See also: Rough Trade).
In passing, he says that:
“As a black man, we have so many hurdles to cross. This is just one he has to cross.”
Sure, because black football players are really swimming upstream in today’s society.
Because everyone in the Democrat-left coalition is a persecuted minority. They’re all so oppressed that they’re arguing with each other over which kinds of oppression are worse than the others, the whole bit about intersectionality and progressive stack. Remember one of my axioms: If of the seven billion people on Earth, if only one of them was a straight white gentile man, the other 6,999,999,999 people would all be oppressed minorities.
That said, now I know why he turned out gay. Hitch-Cock.
I guess there’s no time like the present.
At first, I thought he was running a Jason Collins style scam, i.e. pretend to be gay in a cynical attempt to augment his professional athletic career. (Note to peanut gallery: You should notice when Collins “announced” that he is “gay” relative to his career arc, the auspicious lack of ex-boyfriends gossiping about his bedroom talents, and the fact that his long time fiancee, a woman, hint hint, was totally shocked when he “came out,” when women pick up on this kind of stuff way ahead of the curve.)
Then I got back to the salt mines last night. Like I said in my morning update, people involved in Missouri state government, both elected and unelected, are heavily Mizzou alumni, and of course Mizzou is just a hop skip and a jump away. So any big news out of Mizzou is going to be the talk of this town during the legislative session. When ESPN scooped everyone to expose the school’s cover-up of football players raping a swimmer, that’s all this town could talk about.
And now that the world media is about to be camped out in Columbia, of course this news is setting this ordinarily sleepy river town on fire and turning it upside down.
That said, people talk, and word gets around.
Contra my initial suspicion, Mr. Sam is very likely authentically LGBTQMIAPDLOLPLPLTH. Because his sexual orientation has been something of a semi-open secret in certain circles up in Columbia for most of the last year. And he came out to his coaches and teammates before the start of this season. Only now is he coming out for everyone else.
Still, why now? Why the timing?
Maybe he thinks he’s goosing his draft position.
The problem is, like I’ve been saying in this space for a long time, the problem for the first one won’t be his teammates, won’t be the locker room, but the media. I think the same media who think they’re helping gay men high level professional athletes and helping their cause are actually hurting them, by rattling the sabres and promising a media circus around whoever the first will be. If you’re in the NFL right now and expect to be at least through next season, and you’re actually gay, are you going to come out and have a good chunk of the world’s media ganged up around your locker after every game to ask you questions about sex but never about your job? But for the media’s obsession with gay gay gay gay gay, I think we would already have had some come out of the closet.
Thirty-two NFL GMs running up to the draft in early May now realize that they’re going to be drafting a media circus far more than a future linebacker (I’ll get to that in a moment) if they select Sam. If he thinks he was helping his draft status, I think he did just the opposite.
Here’s another problem for Sam: He played DE at Mizzou, but he’s undersized and underweight to play DE in the NFL, so he’ll probably be moved to LB. But there’s a really long list of these very kind of men who washed out in the NFL trying to make the transition. Maybe Sam senses this coming and is conveniently pre-creating the homophobia excuse. So this could be another explanation for the timing.
Or here’s another theory: The Olympics, in supposedly anti-gay Russia. Thumbing Vladimir Putin in the eye from ten time zones away.
Whatever the case, turn off the low information sports media if you don’t want to hear about this for the next three months.
Chapel Hill, North Carolina
This article from Business Weak (sic) is a bit inaccurate. She isn’t being destroyed because she helped expose the black studies department scandal.
No, the world’s stinkiest shit hit the world’s fastest fan when she told the world that black scholarship athletes are epidemically stupid and would otherwise be unqualified to look at a college much less be admitted to one except for the fact that they can play ball.
So, exposing the perfidy of one professor in one department isn’t too bad. But telling the truth about a certain group of people as a whole is grounds for character assassination.
This article is useful in one way — Voltaire was once rumored to say or write that you can tell who rules you for who you’re not allowed to criticize. Likewise, as this row has proven, you can tell which group of people suffers which particular problems for which group of people want talk of those problems shut down and censored. A UNC tutor blows the whistle about dumb athletes, and like they have springs in their butts or ants in their pants, every black race lobby on and off campus starts jumping up and down in a panic. Even if you were too dense to infer “black” from “dumb athlete,” the fact that black groups and spokesmouths started complaining about it should spell it out for you. That should remind you of a very similar recent story.
He’s giving himself a bargaining chip to try to get us to pay the whole freight to renovate the Dome.
He has no plans to get a stadium built there.
Inglewood is the hood, and you know it’s all good.
He’s not going to move the Rams back to L.A. only to have its brand spiffin’ new stadium in Bell Curve City. Hell, that’s the problem with USC games at the Coliseum.
The land buy is only 60 acres, which isn’t enough for a stadium and all the parking needed. Another reason why this is a bluff.

He’s playing in the Super Bowl.
“So, Demaryius, your team just won the Super Bowl. What are you going to do now?”

Gaffney, South Carolina
Granard Middle School is 73% white 23% black. Gaffney MS is 51% white 38% black 10% Hispanic.
When a school has any appreciable percentage of blacks, the basketball team (and football team) will be majority if not mostly black. Not because of any real basketball talent, but because coaches have bought lock stock and barrel into the cult of black athletic superiority, and for the fact that 12-14 year old blacks are more physically mature than whites of the same age.
Eventually, the DOJ will file a lawsuit against the website Great Schools to get them to take down their school race data. Because…we must not notice things.
Now, wouldn’t it have been something if, instead of drinking this Gatorade, the players would have saved it to dump on the coach of the winning team. A middle school athletic coach isn’t expected to be that old or that gray-haired. So that particular coach would have started the game his natural hair color and come out of it gray.
Chapel Hill, North Carolina
First off, they’re still persecuting the whistleblower.
But there’s a more fundamental reason.
In order for there to be real change, there must be a genuine and honest acknowledgment of the problem. And there can never be that in this matter because telling the truth about this particular problem is…
The worst thing in the world to be.
Because…black scholarship athletes that can’t read who otherwise would not be qualified to look at a college are admitted to college, but need some contrived way to stay eligible.
As a wise man taught me a long time ago, you can’t solve a problem until you first identify a problem, and you can’t identify a problem if you’re prevented from doing so by the dictates of political correctness.
Wild stars advise family to stay home from Sochi
One of the charms of the Olympics is seeing and hearing the family members of the athletes cheering from the seats and waving the national flags after traveling around the world to get there.
Concerns about safety in Sochi have prompted some U.S. Olympians to tell their loved ones to stay home, however. Minnesota Wild defenseman Ryan Suter, who will skate for Team USA next month, is one of them.
He said Wednesday that his wife and two young children won’t be traveling to Russia for the Winter Games. The long trip is part of the reason, but recent news about terroristic threats made the decision ”a little bit easier.”
They live in Minneapolis-St. Paul, full of Somalians and God knows what else. They’re probably in more danger of a terrorist attack at home than they are in Sochi. Unlike in Minnesota, Russian politicians don’t pander to Muslims and kiss up to them.
What’s this really all about? Leave it to me to tell you.
It’s LGBTQMIAPDLOLPLPLTH stirring up the pot to complain about certain Russian laws about homosexuality and children.
Which makes me wonder: Have LGBTQMIAPDLOLPLPLTH said word one about Nigeria? If it was the Summer Olympics in Lagos this year, would we see overt and covert agitprop and paranoia being spread about Nigeria? Or would that cause a car wreck at the intersectionality of black, Muslim and LGBTQMIAPDLOLPLPLTH? Homophobia might be bad, but racism and Islamophobia are worse. Is that it?
If you give a typical young American black man $64 million pre-tax, ($34m in total salary, $30m in endorsement deals), how much will he have left when he’s 30 years old?
Answer: Negative seven figures.
Notice the above photo, taken after the Texas Longhorns won the national championship of college football in 2006 for the 2005 season. The white man, Mack Brown, was Vince Young’s college coach . Now, the white one is unemployed and the black one is bankrupt. Good times, they dooz beez fleetin.
You go girl.
Which means a possible felony rap.
His parents must be so proud. Or should I say his white adoptive parents.
This should explain the title of this post, which alludes to Michael Oher of The Blind Side fame. DGB here is southwest Missouri’s equivalent.
The mother of the late Jovan Belcher is a black woman.
The Kansas City Chiefs have money.
Peruse the weekday afternoon judge shows, and you’ll see that black women love to sue.
This may be a counterintuitive thing to say about a man who is “flossing” (showing off) stacks of “Benjamins” (hundred dollar bills), but here goes anyway:
Adrien Broner is a poor man.
First person to tell me what I mean by that gets a gold star.
Everyone, from the lowly rookies making a rookie minimum of $405,000 this season right up to the highest paid player on the team making $10,750,000.
You might note the hint of sarcasm in the last sentence, if for other reason, the snarkiest bastard on the internets wrote it. But my thoughts are mild compared to the team employees that are security guards, secretaries, peanut vendors, the janitors and housekeepers that have to clean the locker rooms the night after a game, (one of the most thankless jobs on Earth), not a one of them making anywhere near $405,000. Where are their X-Boxes?
When I lived in the area in 2009, my job was not with SIUC directly, but the school and especially the athletic department was a big client, and I was on the campus quite a bit. What I’m about to say isn’t true for this season’s roster, but I know in general and in the recent past, SIUC loves to recruit in ESL, and also among second rate talent in Chicago.
Meaning a lot of the black ones ARE “mama’s boys,” because they’re certainly not daddy’s boys.
Apropos, because what he found when he went to South Africa for the funeral were two ironic things: One, the reason apartheid was needed, and two, the reason white people surrendered.
I guess this means I can shut down the blackdar. The explanation is your typical AFC West tribal warfare.
In a few weeks, the BCS college football teams will be announced. A few days later, the dork in Orlando with a fax machine will release a report about the race disparities in graduation rates at those schools and their sports programs.
But the dork in Orlando with a fax machine need not wait — Here’s an early gift for him:
Black NFL players arrested nearly 10 times as often as whites
A police officer in Cincinnati watched a large black man get into his car and turn on the engine after being told it was illegally parked.
The officer thought the man was trying to avoid a parking ticket and told him to stop. So the man — Matthias Askew, at the time an NFL player — stopped his Cadillac Escalade, got out and was arrested in a scuffle with several officers. Police used a stun gun on Askew four times, alleging he resisted arrest.
A judge rejected the police account and cleared Askew of all charges.
“They tased him simply because he was a big black man, not because he did anything to make them fear for their safety,” Askew’s former attorney, Ken Lawson, told USA TODAY Sports about the 2006 incident.
For many black players in the NFL, it’s a familiar scene. Of 687 NFL player arrests since January 2000, Askew’s was one of 294 that came in a traffic stop, according to a USA TODAY Sports investigation. In a league in which 66% of the players are black and 31% are white, black players were arrested nearly 10 times as often as white players (260 to 28), accounting for 88% of those NFL traffic-stop arrests.
That percentage is consistent with the overall NFL arrest numbers: Of the 687 total player arrests in the USA TODAY Sports database that spans 14 seasons, 607 involved black players — 88%, a disproportionate rate sociologists attribute to several social factors in the black population at large, including a disproportionate rate of poverty and single-parent backgrounds. Those factors also include profiling, civil rights experts and NFL players say.
So the poverty of black NFL players (minimum NFL salary for the 2013 season: $420,000 for rookies graduated up to $940,000 for 10+ year vets) is the cause of their being arrested way more often than their white colleagues.
However, the disproportion isn’t as severe as it seems, especially from the headline. First off, of the 687 total arrests, 607 are black, and 80 are non-black, which doesn’t necessarily mean white. But that leaves a raw disparity of 7.6 times, not 10 times. But don’t forget that while 88% of arrests are black, 66% of players are black, and on the flip side, 12% of arrests are non-black while 34% of players are non-black. If my methodology is correct, (607/80)/(66/34)=3.9, meaning that a black NFL player is “only” about four times more likely to be arrested than a non-black player. Again, most of the non-blacks are white, but it also includes a few Hispanics and Polynesians. I put “only” in quotes because in the universe of black-white and black-nonblack crime disparities of this statistical nature, that’s pretty low in terms of a multiple number in disfavor of blacks. That means that just on that alone, a black NFL player is better behaved than blacks in general, or whites in the NFL are somewhat more criminal than whites in general, or a little of both.
Then there’s another factor: Arrests for what crimes? You can be arrested for murder, or you can be arrested for having a little bit of weed. It is my estimation that black NFL players who are arrested are arrested for crimes that tend not to be as serious as the kind of crimes that blacks in general are arrested for.
For comparison, in the 2011 NFL season, the average player salary was $1.9 million, while the median was $770,000. So a few very high paid players blew the curve for the average, and it’s probably still that way.
Of the arrests made only as a result of traffic stops, 260 were black, 28 were white, in a league that’s 66% black and 31% white. (This is where the “nearly 10″ in this headline comes from, examining only arrests as a result of a traffic stop and only black and white players. Still, 260/28 = 9.3, closer to 9 than 10.) This means looking at traffic stop arrests alone and only black and white players alone, (260/28)/(66/31)=4.36. That’s a disparity not much higher than all arrests of NFL players in general, (keep in mind that that 3.9 figure is blacks more likely than all non-blacks, not just whites alone), and still way less than the typical black-white crime disparity.
I tweeted Brent Schrotenboer, the author of this article, to ask him of the 80 non-black arrests, how many were white, and he tweeted back to me that number is 64.
So (607/64)/(66/31)=4.45. Still not that bad from the black perspective.
Also, even though these are risky statistics for their insignificant 3% of all players, but blacks are 1.7 times more likely to be arrested than players who are neither black nor white, (in NFL parlance, mostly Hispanic or Polynesian), while they are in turn 2.6 times more likely than whites to be arrested.
Blacks < Others < Whites. Where have we seen that pattern before?
All the usual mehe: Ook stabs another ook to death, he’s facing a murder rap.
The fambly of the suspect runs to the media and says good boy ain’t no killa’. Fambly of the victim is devastated and says that everybody liked him.
Except there’s a catch. Neither victim nor suspect is an aspiring rapper.
The suspect is a captain on his high school football team, and is LGBTQMIAPDLOLPLPLTH, and the victim was his lover.
Football, gay and black. What an intersectionality. Thank goodness it’s November — This is right in the wheelhouse of the sweeps month 24/7 news cycle sensationalism machine.
College Park, Maryland
Because brother-in-law hopeychanger coaches Oregon State, (not for much longer), the Beavers have made it their business to travel to the D.C. area and play some D.C. area school in basketball every college basketball season while The Great Hopeychanger has been President.
And this year, it was the University of Maryland.
Which is about as deep blue territory as you can get.
And they’re just now investigating it?
“Tallahassee Police Department officials refused to answer any questions, although they did release a heavily redacted two-page incident report. The report does not mention Winston by name, but it says the incident took place between 1:30 and 2 a.m. last Dec. 7. It describes the suspect in the sexual assault case as being between 5-foot-9 and 5-11. Winston is listed by Florida State at 6-4.“
You don’t think people on the PD for the city that has Florida State University has an incentive to fib about a suspect description to make sure a prized recruit is able to play the next season, do you? What, do you think the cops have FSU football season tickets?
What are you, some sort of tinfoil hat conspiracy kook?
Or someone that pays attention and notices things?
The answer is yes.
“No, you can’t go, Detroit Lions. Sit back. Sit in your little city. Fix your financial problems and all of that, you know. You can’t come with us right now.”
As if Chicago is all peaches and cream. Sure, it’s not as bad off as Detroit, but it’s still got a lot of problems.
And also…ook…maybe there’s a reason Detroit is in the fix that it’s in. Find a mirror.
The Atlanta Braves want to leave Fonda Field, which was built in 1996 as Centennial Olympic Stadium for the 1996 Summer Olympics then remodeled into a baseball stadium the next year, for a new home near the I-75/I-285 junction in Cobb County.
Why do they want to abandon a stadium that will only be 20 years old in baseball terms when they hope to have their new suburban digs open?
The media are mystified that, in spite of the team’s propaganda that the new stadium would have better transportation options, that traffic in that part of Atlanta is even worse than what it is downtown, and that MARTA doesn’t have service to that area.
Well, duh, that’s the reason, stupid. MARTA = Moving Africans Rapidly Through Atlanta.
Another problem is that the Braves have lethargic attendance figures in spite of being a consistent winner. Yes, part of the problem is Fonda Field’s current location is very close to a whole lot of the undertow. But Atlanta sports fans are rather fickle, mainly because a whole lot of white Atlanta is from somewhere else.
Uh oh, he said the n-word. He, being ex-Ram Richie Incognito, will get in more trouble for that than anything else relating to this narrative.
And also, the dork in Orlando with a fax machine is about to have an orgasm.
If you really wanted to honor the victims of the Boston Massacre, you would have done so by electing immigration patriots to your public offices.
But no, the first really big election of any consequence, a little more than three months later, your “choice” was between two people who both wanted to throw the borders wide open for even more Tsarnaevs to waltz on in.
