Bozo of the week

As you know, since there is nothing really going on in the world of sports and we have 7,943,205,789,104 stations/news outlets that cover sports, they need to fill those hours and hours with content. Colin Kaepernick’s decision to sit during the National Anthem in protest of the treatment of minorities in the country. His quotes below:

“I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color,” Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. “To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”
“This is not something that I am going to run by anybody,” he said. “I am not looking for approval. I have to stand up for people that are oppressed. … If they take football away, my endorsements from me, I know that I stood up for what is right.”
“I’ve been blessed to be able to get this far and have the privilege of being in the NFL and making the kind of money I make and enjoy luxuries like that. I can’t look in the mirror and see other people dying in the street that should have the same opportunities that I’ve had and say, you know what, I can live with myself.”
Regarding the military, which he has family and friends in: “They fight for freedom, they fight for the people, they fight for liberty and justice, for everyone. That’s not happening. People are dying in vain because this country isn’t holding their end of the bargain up.”

When that happened, all the media outlets send all of their people out to all of the training camps and all asked the same questions to all of the NFL players. When they were done getting sound from the players, they all asked each other their reactions about what Colin did… again, because there aren’t ACTUAL sports happening other than baseball.
So Colin couldn’t understand what real black men go through…
(even though Colin actually IS black)
Rodney, you’ve been commentating on NBC since you retired. Colin has been in the league for FIVE years. How do you not know this, man?

Brock Turner and Aaron Persky

Brock is the Stanford swimmer that raped a woman who was passed out and was only stopped because a couple of bicyclists saw the disgusting act and intervened.

If you read one thing all year, read the letter (or listen to CNN’s Ashleigh Banfield read it here) the victim read in court to Brock previous to sentencing.

Aaron Persky is the judge that sentenced Brock to 6 months in jail for that act… with 3 months off of that if he shows good behavior.

This… THIS is the world we live in?

In the Little League Game

I keeps it real

Let’s see what Blake Bortles thought of the Jags performance in the first half against Cincinnati.
Oh, oh my…

WHAT in the…???

Most of you don’t watch the pageantry that is college football, but in case you missed the Alabama v Clemson National Championship game last year and don’t have an idea about just how big some of these people are:
#2 is Derrick Henry, RB and Heisman trophy winner.
That little dude in the ‘A’ jacket? He’s MARK INGRAM 2009 Heisman trophy winner and RB for the New Orleans Saints. Holy mother of GOD! Who’s the ‘little brother’ in this pic?

Around the League:

(# = number of games, SAP = Substance Abuse Policy, PED = PED Policy, BS = BullShit)

All injuries will be listed in the link above… I’m not putting anything else on here unless it’s major… Like Tom Brady slicing his thumb with a pair of scissors while trying to remove something off of his cleat.

Oh, Damn… Looks like Teddy Bridgewater’s knee exploded into a million pieces and then turned into a pile of goo…That’s terrible.

The Commish has also decided to NOT do the big board this year with stickers. You will be handed a piece of paper with every owner including keepers. YOU will be responsible for writing down who has been selected.

IF you try to select someone who has already been selected, you will forfeit your pick to the owner right after you in the draft order. After that owner has made his/her selection, you can then pick.

Same rules as always:
If you say “Is player x hurt?” that is fine… if you say “Player X… is he injured?” You HAVE SELECTED player X.

The season begins Thursday 9/8 (just 1 week!), the DRAFT IS ON Wed 9/7 at Hooters in West Springfield at 5:45p-6:00p start time… or when Norm gets there.

If one of your two keepers gets injured in the week between the keeper deadline and the draft, you CAN change your keeper, but you MUST let me know ASAP, so I can inform the rest of the league so they can adjust their draft preparations accordingly.
