A boyfriend and a girlfriend made a bet this past thanksgiving...., the name of their new born son will be named after the QB of the winning team between the Cowboys and Skins.
The Boyfriend won, whom happen to be a Skins fan, and their soon to be delivered son with be named after RG3.
The Winning Name will be "Robert Griffin Vega (RGV)".
Ladies..., be careful when betting on sports because sometimes you loose more than just a dollar bill.
Dennis Dixon is a very very very talented QB, and for the past 1.5 years, I've been wondering what happened to this fine young man.
3 Years ago, I thought Dixon out played Big Ben in Pit during the pre-season, and 2 years ago, Dixon started the first 4 games for the Steelers because Ben was out, and Dixon won 3 of 4 of those games, and actually performed well enough, in my opinion to pull of a Kaepernick in Pittsburgh.
Dixon is taller than Vick, more accurate than Vick and although, he isn't as fast as Vick, he's "28" young mature years old.
PHILLY FANS.... STAND BY FOR THE STAND BY
For all the good a football player can do for his school, for his family, for his state, and for this nation, one instance of a football player, committing crimes such as "Robbery", will easily, remove all the good that any football player have done.
4 Alabama Football Players are accused of beating and robbing students on campus, and it doesn't seem to matter how or why these actions took place, the fact that these players are committing crimes is a sad thing.
These Boys must have been on some drugs of some sort, because mugging people at midnight suggests that normally acting boys would not decide to beat a person up and take their money...., on a college campus.
Throwing games is a extremely distasteful act by any athlete playing in any sport. Fixing games undermines the loyalty of the fans, it erode the trust that has been openly given to each team and each player.
Suffice it to say, if a person's character is bad, throwing a game isn't the most serious thing that this person is capable of.
Some of the characteristics of those with bad character are: "Selfishness, Disrespectful, Dishonesty, Un Willing to Share, Lacking Compassion, Liar, Thief, and Cheater".
Soccer player Mario Cizmek was arrested for match fixing, and this man has children.
For Soccer Fans, who are the most passionate and loyal fans of any sports around the world, I truly feel for you, in that, your loyalty and passion for your team may be unreciprocated by a team that have a group of players with bad character.
Wrestling is the "Quant Essential Olympic Sporting Event", in that, wrestling is a amateur athletic event.
To this day, I have never seen a professional Wrestling event televised on t. v., specifically, because Wrestling is a "amateur sport", and correct me if I'm wrong..., the Olympics is supposed to be a
"amateur athletic" venue.
Physical Fitness, Extreme Knowledge, and Years of Practiced Skills are required to compete on the world stage in the sport of wrestling.
Wrestling is one on one combat that require specific capabilities to score points, and a sport each and every individual can participate in, unlike a sports like "Equestrian, Archery, Canoe/Kayaking, or Luge".
Who are these idiots on the IOC?
Israeli football team Beitar Jerusalem signed two Muslim players, the first time ever, adding Muslims on the Beitar Jerusalem Team.
Racist chants started by Israeli's who disapprove of adding Muslims to Israel's football team, and the teams management office was burned down.
Why does this scenario sound so familiar..... Oh, I remember, it was this identical type of racist responses that took place in the U.S. when the first black baseball player was signed on in Major League baseball 70 plus years ago.
Racism is a ugly human learned behavior and for an Israeli, to commit a racist act of any kind, is a indication that Jewish People have not learned from their own victimization by Hilter.
Lebron, "labeled "The Man Beast" at ASK FMB.COM", took his wrath to the Lakers yesterday, scoring a relaxing 32 points against Coby & Howard.
Monster Slams, raining 3 pointers, driving to the hole and slamming down dunks that no child should ever witness, the Man Beast decides when he wants to impact the game.
Even as good as Coby and Howard are as super stars in the NBA, the Gods stand and chant when the Man Beast opts to beat his chest.
There is no such thing as Beast Mode for the Man Beast, because the Man Beast is always on, and as a millimeter of light breaks between defenders, the Man Beast eyes widens and before anyone can prepare themselves, the Man Beast has already kicked open the door and the slam dunk is taking place.
I love to watch Lebron "Man Beast" as a joyful relaxed player, but, he knows that when the playoffs start, the Man Beast must reduce the smiles to scowls until the title is in his hand.
10 years in the NFL could lead to 20 years of mental confusion, so, as you enjoy the glory of fame, invest in your future with every extra dime that you can.
Stop spending money or big homes, expensive cars, and on parties, and for heaven sakes, stop making it rain in a strip club.
Your future Medical Bills will eat your future stash up, so plan ahead by investing in savings account that will grow your millions into hundreds of millions.
That Brain of yours, after 10 years of banging against other football players, will be damaged, and you will need plenty of money to provide for your future.
If your a black football player, call me, I have a plan that can help a lot of football players for their future mental troubles.
Common Man..., The last thing any man needs is to be charged with "Domestic Physical Abuse".
Never Ever, Never Ever, and Never Ever, assault a woman.
Leroy, your a professional football player, and you got there by working extremely hard, many hours in the gym, many hours in the grass, sweat and pain was a daily thing, and to have gotten to the place you are today, the last think you do is to allow "any woman" to cause you to loose your discipline.
It doesn't matter how much you love that woman, if you ever feel that they woman does not want to be at your side for any reason..., let her go......
If any woman ever speak in a rude tone to you.... ask her to leave politely, and close the door after she leaves, and never let her back in your home.
If a woman ever rolls her eyes at you, or display a funky attitude as if "your getting on her nerves", politely ask her to leave, and never let her back in again.
If ever, a woman, speaks to any of your friends in a manner that you consider disrespectful to your friend or disrespectful to you, politely ask her to leave, and never let that one back in again.
The Heart is like a broken leg when a woman crushes it, it takes 6 months to heal, and then you get back on the field.
I have been saying it for months..., Singletary "Cleaned Up San francisco" and had he gotten a quality QB by firing that guy named Smith, Mike would still be coaching San Fran.
Harbaugh didn't create San Fran, he got lucky.
The Raiders need a strong minded and a strong willed Coach, and Mike Singletary is the man for that job.
We all know what the hiring system is in the NFL....
Baltimore Ravens San Francisco 49ers
In what will surely be a very good Super Bowl based on the match ups, the two teams Ravens & San francisco, are seemingly, mirror image of each other, in terms of Defense, Offenses, Special Teams and lead by Brothers, the Harbaugh's.
The New England Patriots.... Gone, the Green Bay Packers... Gone.
A season that allowed more fans than every before, to feel some degree of pride because they have new talent that provides a team that competes, primarily because they found themselves with 5 new starting rookie QBs that performed like seasoned pros, raising their teams to playoff contention, and raising the entire NFL team standards to an all time high.
WE GOT OURSELVES A SUPER BOWL
Ravens woke up two weeks ago when Ray Lewis rejoined the team on the field and even Flacco have upped his game to top 10 QB level, and I asked this question last week, can 1 man cause an entire team to play like champions..., and the answer is yes.
San francisco, a quality team that brings toughness to each game for the past 2 years, but they were missing something, and they found that missing "thing" in their replacement QB Kaepernick, a tall slender and quick QB that represent the new type of athletic QB that has taken the NFL by storm, and his presence of a extremely talented offense have placed the 49er's at the top of the N F C.
This Super Bowl will be a very good Super Bowl, pitting the East Coast against the West Coast
RG3 - if the skins make the playoffs They Got In
Luck - if Indy win their first game in the playoffs He Lost
Wilson - if Sea Hawks go to the Super Bowl They didn't
Manning - if the Broncos win the Super Bowl They didn't
Peterson - if the Vikings goes to NFC Championship They didn't
If all of the above take place in any combination,
there will be a tie between the players
that lead their teams to these
Based on the above criteria that I sited as ASKFMB NFL MVP
RG3 was the only one to meet the criteria, and since Manning lost in the first round, as well as the Vikings, and the fact that Russell didn't go to the Super Bowl, and Luck didn't win their first game in the play offs, RG3 is the only one to meet ASKFMB criteria for NFL MVP
20 Years ago, every NFL Coach wanted to force their QBs to stay in a pocket, look for the receiver, and throw the football.
In 1970 thru 1999, Black QBs were bastardized for their ability to run the football, if the play breaks down..., they were called slow and not intelligent enough to manage a football team because they refuse to stay in the pocket and wait for receivers to get open, but, fans have always loved the QB that runs the ball to get that significant 1st down that allows the offense to continue moving down the field.
The Fans have always seen the QB that runs as a added excitement factor added to a otherwise boring format of standing in the pocket and getting sacked.
The new bread of NFL QBs are taking over, and the teams that use these extremely athletic QBs to their advantage, have baffled those tough defenses that master the standard QB in the pocket format.
Kaepernick performance against the Green Bay Packers was the type of performance that every team in the league that have a mobile QB, ought to capitalize on, in that, tell that QB to take off when the rushing defensive line and the secondary have created a 10 yard gap in the defense allowing, the QB to chop off 10 yard runs and more, with ease.
And Kaepernick's ability to take advantage of this time of thought process, demolished the Green Bay Packer's D.
San Fran took advantage of having a mobile QB, and giving him the green light to run, ensured a win that most didn't believe could happen.
Last week, Ray Lewis, returned to the Ravens line up, and holy crap batman, the Ravens Offense played good damn football, the defense played like the best D in the NFL.... WHAT THE HELL HAPPEND?
RAY LEWIS IS WHAT HAPPENED
Last week,, the Ravens Defense beat up on the Colts Offense, like they stole something, and trust me, the Colts had a quality Offense, but, the game seemed so lopsided, and I wondered, can 1 man cause everyone else on the team to "BELIEVE"?
Today, I wrote off the Ravens, in that, the Master QB Manning, will surely bring the wrath, and set the wrong right, but, noooooo,
it was the Ravens D that set the Wrong Right.
A Raven D that played like a young Ravens D of 5 years ago, took over the game, and restricting Manning "five fist style offense", to only 21 points, and it was that swarming D that forced Manning many 3 and outs.
Finally, Flacco woke up.... in what has to be, his best QB performance of the NFL Season for the Ravens, throwing "Hail Marry's" like Marry was watching over the "Hail Mary's".
Holly Hail Mary Batman....
Can 1 Man cause a entire team to believe? HELL YES.....
Manning mistake sealed the fate for Denver, with a INT in OT that allowed the Ravens to place their kicker in a perfectly aligned field goal of 47 yards that served as the dagger that sent the beast home.
What a game, and I'm extremely impressed by the Ravens performance in a game they many, including me, believed was inevitable, going to be a loss for the Ravens.
When ever I'm wrong..., it means that there was a good darn game.
Texans...., did you see this game?
However, the fans didn't come back, they were pissed, and frankly..., baseball had absolutely nothing to cheer about.
Players were getting paid to much, managers weren't managing, no hustle on the field, and to this day, the "Hit & Run, Sacrifice Bunt, and Squeeze Play" have completely disappeared, replaced with "record strike-outs, record low batting averages and jogging for fly balls".
In 1998, Mark McGwire and Sammy Sosa brought the fans back to the seats..., in huge numbers, and if it were not for those two, who knows what baseball would be today?
The Run between McGwire & Sosa, was absolutely
and even I started watching games those two were involved in, and yes... baseball was back..., yet..,
twice as enjoyable because of the home runs.
Then, after the dust settled, in 2001,
setting the single season HR Record, and then in 2006, breaking Hank Arron's Record...,
there was a reason to watch baseball...,
and not 1 Hall of Fame Voter had anything to do with the fact that baseball was worth seeing once again.
Cheating has been around since the beginning, so all of you
Hypocrites who vote, remember that these men only got better during a time when things were at its worse for baseball.
Last week's game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Skins, it was evident that RG3's knee was a huge issue, and not only did Shanahan not plan to work out the back up QB, RG3's performance in the first quarter of the Wild Card game yesterday, was nothing short of heroic, in that, his getting 14 points on the board while running on "1" leg, should have been the determining factor to remove RG3 from the game.
With a 14 point lead, and RG3 obvious pain, putting the back up in the game would have at least allowed the offense a better chance managing the game.
Mike Shanahan left RG3 in the game until 6 minutes left on the clock, and by then, it was far to late.
There was a entire week to prepare the back up QB, and with a 14 point lead and the momentum, Mike Shanahan's lack of action sealed the skin's fate, and if I'm not even on the field, and I'm not even a Coach, yet, I can conclude that RG3 couldn't play, I wonder why Mike Shanahan wasn't able to see the same thing.
I'm appalled at Mike Shanahan, lack of judgment, lack of coaching, and lack of understanding who the coach is and what his job title says.
NFL Coaches bit the dust:
Buffalo Bills Coach Chan Gailey
Chicago Bears Lovie Smith
Cleveland Browns Pat Shurmur and GM Tom Heckert
Kansas City Chiefs Pat Shurmur
Kansas City Chiefs Romeo Crennel
Philadelphia Eagles Andy Reid
San Diego Chargers Norv Turner and general manager A.J. Smith
Jacksonville Jaguars GM Gene Smith
New York Jets GM Mike Tannenbaum
Tennessee Titans Personnel executive Mike Reinfeldt
The Next phase..., finding replacements for all these coaches that have been removed, which in itself, is a huge effort.
Millions of fans are sweating... wondering who will take the place of these coaches who have been fired..., and that's the name of the game called "Fans".
As expected, the Eagles have fired Andy Reid in what turned out to be two very disappointing years.
Frankly, the end was inevitable when McNabb was traded because the Eagle's O Line has always ben pretty bad and not having a mobile QBs after McNabb, no QB could actually work with the weak recieving staff and the poor O Line that Philly has always had....
I'm sure the McNabb is somewhere laughing his ass off.
Another good weekend of football across the NFL, and for the sport or, for the teams that have these tremendous talented rookies,
not only does these teams have a reason to cheer today,
the next 10 years for each of these teams, should not have any concerns about a QB position.
The Rookie of the Year, for the first time in NFL History, does not have a clear winner, or even two that stand out more than that one other, making this thing a 3 head horse heading to the tape.
For the Seahawks, there was a reason why the coach chose Wilson over the million dollar man they brought in to run the team this year, and it was a great eye and a great judgment by the coach.
Indy & Skins were set, knowing that each team have talent at the QB position, but, I watched Wilson at NC State & Washington, and knew of his talents years ago.
BUT...., HOLD ON THERE HOMY
There are 3 guys that need to be recognized beside Mr. Manning, each of which, have equaled the value to the NFL as Manning has this year, each of which have brought their teams from a possibility to a shoe in, each of which have accomplished greatness equal to Manning this year.
WHO WINS THE NFL MVP????
Ya..., I said it.., for one person who "denigrate, demonize, degrade, belittle, malign, demean and debase" another person because of the way that person looks or because he doesn't believe in that person's ways..., those are the characteristics of a Bigot or Racist, and Mr. Parker, that is exactly what you did in your comments with respect to RG3.
THANKS FOR THE APPOLOGY
NOW GO AWAY FOREVER
A person of the degree of flawed character of Rob Parker would not be an person that I would allow as my employee, on my team, in my home, or sitting beside me at a bar of any kind, and I would go further to say that those people of your ilk, that you discussed RG3's qualities with, are also people of questionable character.
The Jets Coaching Staff is an example of how frustrating it could be for the players when you play for people that are "Stupid".
I say that because, to have not figured out how to effectively use Tim Tebow this year, is a sign of a coaching staff that have no immagination, no ability to design plays based on talent, no ability to assess QB's talent skills and incorperate them in a season of NFL Football.
Tebow, a guy that may not have extreme talent, but, he is a proven winner, a person that "can throw the football", a person that "can run the football", and he's a pretty big tough guy, which is in itself, a challenge for most defensive secondaries.
The Lack of vision by the Jet's Coaching Staff is embarrassing to the entire NFL, and the only word that I can think of the suits the coaching staff of the Jets is "STUPID".
This year, the NFL MVP, ain' t no shoe in for anyone or any position.
The Changing Dynamics that rookie QB's are bringing to the NFL, has changed the entire MVP thought process.
Lets see, a team MVP, can be bias, or personal, or political, in that, a team is only accountable for the team's organization and if a player is selected based on a combination of the Owner, Coaches and Players selection, the number of possible candidates may only be as high as 5 possible candidates, who played a role that are specific to that organization.
However, the NFL, is a organization's possible selections times 16 possible intangibles.
Particularly, this year because one can argue that RG3, Wilson, & Luck's value to each team's success maybe NFL League consideration, then, there is Manning who came off a neck injury after missing an entire year, and changing teams and the value of Manning's contributions to the success of the Broncos is something that ought to be considered as well.
Then there is Adrian Peterson, who has provided the same type of story as Manning, but as a running back.
So, who wins...., what are the NFL criteria...., has there ever been a tie...,
RG3 - if the skins make the playoffs
Luck - if Indy win their first game in the playoffs
Wilson - if Sea Hawks go to the Super Bowl
Manning - if the Broncos win the Super Bowl
Peterson - if the Vikings goes to NFC Championship
If all of the above take place in any combination,
there will be a tie between the players
that lead their teams to these
Last year, Lin Sanity was real..., not only did Jeremy Lin carrie the Nicks during a significant time of injuries, he proved that he could play in the NBA, and play very well.
Lin captured not just the U.S.A., his fame wrapped the entire world, and he became a Asian savior, in that, Asian's root for any other Asian race that competes well against any American Sporting events.
To trade Lin didn't make any since what so ever.
It's obvious that Lin isn't a top 10 NBA player but, he's young and he has the foundational skills that could grow into a very good point guard, and for the Nicks not to understand the value of his talents not only on the courts, but how his value could have increased the sales of the NY Nicks Jersey's in the Asian Market in the tune of $Billions..., I find truly amazing.
There is a good reason why a lot of people felt that Josh Bren't presence on the sideline this weekend, wasn't an appropriate move by the Dallas Cowboys ownership and management.
Last weekend, the Cowboys and everyone in the NFL, sports fans, and other people who feel sorrow when a lost life is taken to soon, were all wondering why Josh Brent would drive drunk when the NFL, and NFL Teams, express "good decision making" when players are out and are drinking.
Josh's alcohol blood test registered at a .18, almost double the drunk driving threshold.., and with all the resources at his disposal, to include private numbers that he could have called, that would have provided a driver to pick him up, anywhere, when he feel that he have been drinking and would rather not drive.
NFL Players make millions each year, and these personal drivers only charge $80 bucks to retrieve a player, thereby, ensuring that a player is not putting himself, other drivers, or the NFL, in a tough situation.
Accountability..., a must message that Dallas has opted not to
ensure understood, by having Josh Brent on the sidelines.
The Message, sent by Josh Brent being on the sideline, is a message that suggests that Josh's decision to drive drunk and causing the death of a life long friend, was simply a mistake.
The Reality, Josh Brent's decision was extremely poor, and his previous issue with alcohol should have reminded the Dallas organization that they take "good decisions making"

Miami had to earn the first game win, and they know that the Pacers are a quality team that will definitely win if the
Heat doesn’t bring their “A” Game, and that’s exactly what
happened last night.
Indiana has a very good team but, this series reminds me of the Bulls with Jordan against NY with Ewing, in that, NY had a quality team, a tough team, but, the Bulls had MJ.
Last Night, L James took his seat on the board of finishers because he had the ball in his hand and “new” that he could score the
OOOOOHHHHH IT IS ON
Spurs got 2 under their belt, and the look like they want it more than the Grizzlies. I find that most interesting, especially when the Grizs are the younger team but they are playing like tired old men.
Yet, the Grizs gave it a run last night taking the game to overtime, and I even left the bar I was in because I knew the Grizs legs were stronger at the end of the game but, I was apparently wrong.
The Problem with the Grizs, they don’t have a exterior game, and the inside game is to well defensed by the Spurs.

The demands that we place on the shoulders of professional athletes, to maintain their composure when interacting with fans who are obnoxious, not to mention the weight of "being the example" that professional athletes must bare..., surely we can demand that fans reciprocate with at least "adult" like behavior when attending games.
Not only is the behavior of Filomena Tobias unacceptable, I'd recommend that she be suspended from all Miami games for 3 years, as a reminder that adult behavior is demanded and not a privilege, when attending sporting events.
LeRoy Butler tweets "congratulations" to Jason Collins for having the inner strength to announce being a gay athlete.
LeRoy Butler had a speaking engagement at a church, but, the church canceled his speech because he publicly congratulated
I find it appalling that a church would cause conscientious pressure on a man for acting in an accepting manner.
Actions speak louder than words, and the actions of this church have spoken for the true values of this church.
Tebow can play in the NFL, and it's the coaching that have failed to focus on his strengths and not forcing him to be the mold of the past type QBs.
It's been 30 years since Black QBs have been struggling with adjusting to the NFL's Coaches who demands that they remain in a jar, and not use their athleticism when playing the QB position.
Now, finally, the NFL is morphing into the style of offenses that Black QB's could have brought to the game for the past 30 years.
Again, no one has ever called a Coach a "Genius", they are more of a group of "old boys", who have just happen to know someone.
Tebow is a talented athlete that can play QB in the NFL, if there were Coaches that actually had the skills of designing a offense based on the talent of a Tebow type athlete.
Congratulations Jason Collins..., the announcement of your sexuality releases the Beast of Conscious Pressure, and by doing so, you no longer have to adjust your person to those around you....
those around you must now adjust to your person.
Inside ones consciousness, it's ten times more stressful attempting to hide the truth of ones being, than it is to defend one's self against attacks of sexism, racism or homosexuality.
The Mirror is the most significant entity of ones life, and it's the mirror that must reflect the truth of ones person.
To Deny the mirror the truth is to deny who the mirror reflects to all to see.
The NBA Players know and have been suspicions of a number of players that have played in the NBA and currently play in the NBA, and the truth to the matter is, being gay in sports is a issue only with those that have problems with their own character.
Cleveland has made "1" good decision over the past 25 years, and that was to take King James in the NBA Draft so many years ago.
Since King James left, Clevelanders and the dumb ass Owner of the Cavs acted as if James "owed" Cleveland some type of human loyalty for being selected by the Cavs.
HELLO..., Basketball is a Business, and if you don't know that by now, then your a fool.
Since James departure from Cleveland, exactly what has taken place since the King's relocation to the golden coast?
1 Dumb Ass Move after another by the Cavs management.
If anyone wants to throw stones in any direction, specifically the Cleveland Fans, throw every stone at the constant dumb moves by the Cleveland Management.
The Cleveland Management Pissed on James for leaving, then a year later, they fire Mike Brown as if Mike Brown became the problem without King James, then the replacement coach did a worse job, and now that Mike Brown is available again, after being fired by the Lakers....,
Cleveland Re-Hire Mike Brown.
where is the improvements after King James Left?
For all the cities that have piss poor teams, take a look at Cleveland's example, and if your team have made idiotic moves regarding coaching, or players..., it's the Owner and GM's fault, and until they leave, you will continue to suffer,
just like Cleveland.

FBI: Pilot worker says Jimmy Haslam knew of rebate fraud (Cleveland Browns Owner)
"I'm telling you gentlemen..., our company motto is "integrity", and to suggest that myself, or any of my employees..., purposely with held rebates to any trucking customer...., is false...."
"What about the employee that suggests that you (Haslam) and Hazelwood sat in on sales meetings, in which these tactics were discussed?"
"AAAHHHH..... well aaahhh...., I assure you..., I understand that a potential employee that is a known crack addict, who was caught having sex with a coconut..., aaahhhh... may have made some comments but, I assure you that said possible comments were made under the influence"
" Mr. Haslam...., you have got to be kidding"

We see so many people everyday, afraid to speak their mind, afraid to stand for what they truly believe in, afraid to say STOP to those who harm others, afraid to call a racist a racist, afraid to call their friend a bigot, afraid to say that they are in love with one of another race, afraid to be who they are in their hearts.
Brittney Griner is a young woman of great character in being strong enough to speak out loud, who she is and who she loves when she looks into her mirror.
Brittney serves as an example for every elected official who have voted against gay marriage because those elected official serves not their hearts, they serve the weakness of a empty box of convictions.
I'm proud of this announcement by Brittney Griner...,
she has set an example for others to follow.
For the past 2 weeks, the Lakers have been playing some extremely quality ball, with the to big guys working well together, adding the flavor of a devastating inside outside game to the, often times, uncontrollable Cobe Bryant.
I can tell you that there are at least 4 western conference teams that are toasting this evening.
The Lakers are still going to be a challenge, even without Cobe, because Steve Nash can still be very effective, working the other players in the mix, adding value to the two big guys that ought to dominate all other teams on the boards.
However, with Cobe out..., c'est la via LA.
Graduating College Students create 20 years of debt, to attend a college, and as they work hard for 4 to 5 years, just to receive a piece of paper that validates that 4 years of learning was accomplished, the paper does not guarantee a job, and the piece of paper does not guarantee that the job acquired after graduation, will provide a comfortable life that would allow one to pay back a college loan, while paying for rent, a car note and a care insurance, which are the bare minimums in life.
Yet, a Athletic Director who did nothing as the coach kicked the young amateur athletes, threw balls at them at point blank range with all his might, and called them "fucking faggots" as he did so..., this athletic director gets fired when the world finally sees what he saw, only because others saw the horrid video.
Now, this unsatisfactory athletic director is being rewarded $1.1 Million Dollars for his piss poor abilities, lack of judgment, and arrogance.
This has got to be the most obnoxious turn of events that I have ever observed in my entire life.
I'm appalled by the leadership of Rutgers and I, for one, will not show any instances of complicity by viewing any event that would provide Rutgers t. v. ratings capabilities, because this institution is poorly run, and if we hear about a Sandusky type offense taking place at Rutgers...., it would not be a surprise at all.
To Little and Far To Late
When we have the type of leaders in significant decision making positions who are so flawed that they would ignore the obvious abuse of college students by a "Basketball Coach", a Sandusky type is just waiting for the right opportunity to act.
It wasn't bad enough that the President of Rutgers and the Athletic Director, showed extremely poor judgment in their actions once they were made aware of the abusive actions of Mike Rice, they are now "awarding" Mike Rice with a "$100K Bonus", as a going away gift.
What Mike Rice needs:
He should be read his rights and charged with assault and battery for each and every instance of a physical attack on each and every basketball player that suffered humiliation, degradation and physical abuse by a disturbed man.
And, for future references, criminal activity or criminal charges should nullify all contracts because criminal activity represent conduct unbecoming of the institution.
JaMarcus Russell..., took his life for granted, he took his gift for granted and he took his life successes for granted.
When we take even the smallest instance of life for granted, we can loose those small things and the subsequent results is
JaMarcus Russell is realizing that a lost gift doesn't come back without some serious hard work and a lot of serious wishes.
Life is no joke, and those who are satisfied with your existing talents because those talents provide millions of dollars...,
you are on the verge of loosing it all.
Never assume that your talent will wake up with you tomorrow, and never stop learning something that will ensure that your next 5 years are set up for comfort.
The Average life span is 75 years, and the average athlete's career is only 9 years, so what happens the next 40 years after the sport you were so good at?
Mike Rice, interviewed in a neighborhood, is unable to speak clearly, is unable to look the interviewer in the eye, and sounds like a
"wimp of a man".
This is how Bullies are when they aren't intimidating people who they don't have power over, be it, they are coaches bullying youth, or a bigger male bullying on a small kid, or a man bullying a woman, a wife or a girlfriend.
When the Bully is exposed, his response to those of authority is that of a child that has been caught kicking a small pet.
It's the Bully Personality Type that cannot be tolerated under any circumstances, especially when the bully is in a position of authority.
Yet, the interview that took place with Rutgers' Athletic Director Tim Pernetti, is equally as appalling, in that, he stated that he viewed the tape and concluded that only 3 days of suspension sufficed.
Everyone who is in positions of authority, who viewed this video, and did not take the required action of ensuring that Mike Rice was fired, also should be removed.
This is a Pen State style scenario where the people in power are complicit in the abused of a bullying coach..., they did nothing as the young athletes were being abused by a ignorant acting coach.
Fire them all.
I played sports until days before my graduation from high school, and I realize that coaches can play a significant role in the growth of a young person's maturity, but, a coach can also play a horrid role of the child that suffers from abusive home life.
Rutgers' Coach Mike Rice, in this video, displays the worse type of coach any child or young adult could ever be subjected to.
Young Men playing college sports are still developing mentally and emotionally, and the coach often times are viewed as "substitute parents", and this type of substitute parenting is the type that should cause this parent to serve many years in jail for abuse and assault.
Mike Rice isn't a coach, he is a extremely flawed and disturbed person who should be charged for many crimes associated with attacking young adults.
There is such a thing called "ORA".
The Mind, Body and Heart, are what I call "The Elements of Life", and for me, I've learned that when one of my 3 elements are off, for any reason, my entire "ora" is affected, in that, I can't focus, I can't read, I can't enjoy the music that I love, and I can't function..., until the area that has been damaged, is corrected.
For Tiger, his life is back in order, his Mind, Body & Heart..., are all full, and once again, he can focus and when he is able to focus, his art that others find so difficult, comes so easy.
Peace of Mind, and Joy surrounds TW,
and these things allow him to be TW.
For those who threw TW under the bus, talked bad about him as if he was the only human male on earth who had been caught playing around on the side, when, even those who threw darts at TW were doing exactly the same thing, prepare yourself to pull out your knee pads and start slurping.
Welcome back TW..., it's about time...
NOW KICK A LOT OF ASS
I know that Football is a business, and I know that money talks, but, it seems to me that the Denver Bronco's won 12 games in a row last year based on the Guru QB Manning's ability to pass accurately and manipulate the offense against the defense, so, why in the heck would anyone allow that dynamic slot receiver for the Patriots, that have been running defenses crazy for the past 3 years, end up with the most dangerous QB in NFL History..?
This is like MJ getting Lebron as a team mate during MJ's best seasons and a current capable King James.
New England just made the biggest mistake in the history of the NFL, and not just because they chose not to pay Wes Welker, but, to allow him to go to the one team in the NFL that could use Wes more effectively than the Patriots and a team that has the capability of blowing the Patriots away in their own conference.
NOT SMART NEW ENGLAND
If I were a NE fan, I'd really be scratching my head right now.
Skip Bayless found himself in a "un-winnable" discussion with a football player that has a negative opinion of Skip's Journalistic Skills & Credibility.
Any Journalist that ever interviews a athlete, is vulnerable to being disrespected, due to the journalist's lack of athletic background, which shackles the journalist's validity to challenge the athlete's skills in the sport that he has mastered enough to paid.
Skip, is a complete ass, in terms of his opinion of sports athletes, as if he himself, had played that sport in the past, which he has not.
So, Richard Sherman's challenge in this televised dispute of who is better at their profession, provided a "worse case scenario" for any journalist, when a athlete has no respect for the journalist, and are throwing harpoons at the journalist.
What I loved about this specific interaction is the body language of Skip, which was that of a person who was being "outed", and Skip's lack of ability to defend Sherman's attacks, was even that much more wonderful, but the cherry on top was the facial expressions of Stephen A Smith.
Stephen did all he could do to keep from bursting into laughter.
The bottom line, Skip Bayless was hugely embarrassed, and deservedly so.
As expected...., it was just a matter of time before those who "really" know Pistorious's personality for what it is, rather than his claims of innocence and purity.
Friend's speaking about his temper, his love for guns, and prior incidents of violent and irrational behavior, to the extent that even a doctor covered up stuff, and local police covered up stuff....
Pistoriou's fame bought the character of those in his city, that were persons of influence, friends, legal representatives, and even the law enforcement.
With each incident of Pistorious past, another example of how "enablers" are the worse supporter of the ill.
With each incident of any flawed person's mal behavior, the
"Enabler" is always the worse supporter of the ill.
We observe family members and friends daily, behave badly, and we turn the other cheek,
thereby, acting as the mal behaved "enabler", and finally, when the mal behaved finally kills someone, it's later after the dust settles, that the enablers release instances where the mal behaved..., got away with their flawed, childish and selfish actions of the past.
When we don't do the right thing..., at the time....., of a mal behaved flawed actions, the subsequent results:
Its rare, but, when it happens, everyone knows..., the one that brings the game to a new level.
For Woman Basketball, sure it's cute..., sure they have skills, sure they are equally as talented as men..., BUT.......
This is how woman's BB has been described since it's beginning.
Now..., we have a Tall Talented and Skilled Woman Basketball Player who will either dominate woman's basketball, bring the reign of attention to herself, or, she will bring out the upper shelf level of skills required to compete against her by other woman basketball players.
Before Dr. J, Basketball was just a sport, but when he brought the ability of flight to the game, Basketball became a show.
Before Tiger Woods, golf was just a game, but, his dominance of everyone else forced the others to take the word "game" out, and replace it with "sport", and now, golf actually gets respect.
Brittney Griner "50" is only the beginning.
Good Leadership is the ability to use any and all tools to meet a goal, and in this case, I believe the world would be a more happy place if we were some how able to become friendly with North Korea.
All Governments around the world..., have the wrong people in charge, people who have no personalities, they have never played sports, and they are small minded egoist.
The Two things that brings all humans equally enjoy are
"Sports & Music", and it would seem to me, that if two nation's leaders were to allow the thing that we all love to become the common bond, we would be more willing to speak to each other, based on a common interest.
Politics is the dirtiest practice on earth, and we yet continue to allow politicians to make decisions.
Rodman's interactions with North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un is the best type of interactions that anyone on earth have had with anyone in the leadership of North Korea for decades, and instead of demonizing Rodman's appearance, prudence would suggest that we take this crack and pry it open even further.
The Legendary Pat White from West Virginia, was drafted by the Miami Dolphins, and then fell off the face of the earth.
One thing that we can't say about Pat White's skills..., they are lacking!
Pat White, in my opinion was a "Russell Wilson", but, the Dolphin's Coaching Staff was inept, and continue to be inept.
Now, Pat White is attempting to make a come back, and based on last years 5 rookie performance and the new designed offenses that many teams are running, could us a Pat White, based on his abilities.
Washington Redskins offensive scheme would fit for Pat White, and the Eagles new coach from Oregon offensive scheme would also fit well with Pat White.
I look forward to see someone giving Pat a shot, and the two teams that I see him bringing value to are the skins and the Eagles.
Not my Bud..., watered down because someone wants more profits... OMG. These allegations are huge..., your talking about the integrity of the Budweiser Product, a product that is known around the world.
As it stands right now, the allegations haven't been proven, no one has actually tested a off the shelf can of budweiser for it's alcohol content, and budweiser is denying these allegations, even if some who are accusing budweiser of watering down their beer are former employees.
Nonetheless, the damage is already done, and low and behold, even if 1 can doesn't have the 6% alcohol content level, as advertised on the can of budweiser beer, some harm to the reputation will be validated.
Well, at least the allegations aren't budweiser being accused of adding grass instead of oats to save costs.
The Top 10 Ranked NCAA Men's Basketball Teams in the two poles all have between 3-5 losses, and we still have two weeks of basketball left.
Every teamed, thus far, that have reached the #1 Ranking, lost a game shortly there after, and the argument that I have been hearing suggest that the lack of NBA talented 1 year players in the NCAA is the cause of the balance in the NCAA.
Bravo..., I say let those boys go to the NBA and allow the NCAA to enjoy more competitive and exciting games because those top recruits will end up on the usual NCAA Teams that dominate the recruiting of those coming out of high school.
This year have been particularly exciting due to the balance across the boards and if the regular season is any preface, the NCAA Championships should be something extremely enjoyable to watch.
