WOW: Commish Goodell Just Made Huge Announcement Before Sunday Night Football – Never Done Before!

Published

on

As if the back and forth on the NFL’s position on kneeling during the National Anthem wasn’t confusing enough, Roger Goodell to it to the next level this week.

Last year President Trump made it very clear he was unhappy with the players kneeling during the Anthem, he again this year has called out the NFL for not banning kneel, which Goodell did do a the beginning of the preseason. However, the NFL commissioner quickly folded on the rule.

This week Goodell quietly attended a meeting in New Orleans, he did talk on camera before the meeting or after. But when he got back to his office, he made an announcement that has people scratching their head.

Breitbart wrote:

Even as the NFL seems interested in putting an end to player protests during the national anthem, it is clear from
Goodell’s participation in New Orleans that as an organization, the NFL is fully supporting the players and their social justice issues, according to USA Today.

Goodell joined Saints linebacker Demario Davis, tight end Benjamin Watson, as well as Saints owner Gayle Benson and Saints president Dennis Lauscha, to talk to people involved in the criminal justice system in the Crescent City. The biggest topic was the cash bail system that detractors say puts people at risk of losing jobs, homes, and their children.

The NFL chief attended without an entourage and made no public statements before or after the day’s discussions. However, he was seen earnestly listening to speakers, asking crucial questions about how the league could help highlight their issues, and taking copious notes.

Norris Henderson, founder of Voice of the Experienced, Praised Goodell’s participation.

“But to hear the commissioner taking this in,” Henderson said, “and trying to get educated and … understanding the roles these individuals are taking inside their different communities and the importance of it, for him to see all this stuff up close and personal and hear all the challenges people face daily is huge.”

Saints linebacker Demario Davis also praised Goodell’s attendance saying that his participation was an important show of support.

“Not everybody understands why we’re out on the front lines of this,” Davis said to the commissioner.

“Having you here in this environment with us,” Davis continued, “nobody is better than you to go and relay the information to the owners about why we can’t just pull away from this. We can’t.”

The paper went on to explain the issue with cash bail systems such as the one in Louisiana:

[Goodell] seemed to be particularly interested in the far-reaching impact cash bail has – if someone can’t pay their bail, they will likely lose their job, maybe their kids, despite not even being adjudicated yet – and the lack of resources for women who have been incarcerated. He shook his head and winced while hearing four men tell their stories of being wrongly convicted and serving two decades or more before being released.

Indeed, with player advocates in the lead, material changes in state criminal justice systems have already happened in states such as Pennsylvania and Massachusetts. Louisiana is one of the next targets for the NFL Players Coalition.

With Goodell’s participation, it appears that the $89 million the league promised to spend on social justice issues will not be a simple payoff to players to get them to stop protesting during the national anthem. Goodell’s attendance on Tuesday seems to signal that the league will do far more than just throw money at the players’ issues.

I personally think that doing something about a social issue is far more valuable than disrespecting your country and the men and women that lost the lives to give you the right to kneel during the National Anthem.

Hopefully, now that the NFL is spending all of this money the kneeling will stop, but I don’t think it will.

Tom Brady Yells ‘Reagan, Reagan!’ During Super Bowl And The Responses Are Hilarious

Published

on

In one of the coolest moments in football history (as far as I’m concerned), New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady made an unusual call during a play last night during the Super Bowl. Brady stepped to the line of scrimmage during the third quarter of the Super Bowl on Sunday night, took one look at how the Los Angeles Rams’ defense was squared up and decided to change the play right then and there. And it set social media on fire all over again.

Brady could clearly be heard on a microphone invoking the name of President Ronald Reagan. “Reagan! Reagan!” Brady yelled. I was already rooting for the Pats but they won my heart forever right then and there. How insanely cool is that? After the snap, he handed off the football to running back Sony Michel, who ran toward the right for a 4-yard gain, SB Nation reported.

Former Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo commented that Brady’s call must have meant “run to the right.” And just like that, the New England Patriots became the official team of the Republican Party. President Trump is loved by Brady and Belichick, as well as others on the team. It would seem that Reagan is held dear as well.

You gotta love the Pats trolling the left in the Super Bowl. Epic. The blue checkmark crowd on Twitter came unglued after this on both the right and the left. Good times.

Conservatives loved it to death:

  • “I love it,” one Twitter user noted. “Tom Brady shouted Reagan Reagan, and then they ran to the right. I officially love Tom Brady, and the Patriots are officially the team of the Republican Party.”
  • “Tom Brady just called ‘Reagan Reagan,’ which according to Tony Romo means run to the right,” another added. “I now concede that Tom Brady is the GOAT.”
  • “CNN Breaking News: Tom Brady yells Reagan Reagan before play. 12-person panel has been assembled to discuss Brady’s clear racism,” another joked.

Liberals, however, were not amused:

  • “Y’all still hype up Tom Brady as if he isn’t a racist trump lover???” one Twitter user asked. “Did y’all not hear the Reagan thing either??? Or are we choosing to ignore those things???”
  • “OF COURSE Tom Brady would have an audible named after Ronald Reagan,” another noted. “God I hate Tom Brady.”
  • “Ronald Reagan and Tom Brady are both pieces of s**t,” yet another succinctly put it.

The Conservative Tribune posited a very believable reason for the call:

“Third, the Patriots have often been known to thumb their noses at decorum and have no problem running a score up or rubbing their opponents’ faces in the dirt to send a message. It would not be a stretch at all to consider “Reagan” an overtly intentional play call given how much flak Brady, Patriots coach Bill Belichick, and team owner Robert Kraft have gotten from the left about their association and friendship with Trump.”

The New England Patriots won the Super Bowl 13 to 3 much to the horror of leftists across the nation. It was the lowest scoring Super Bowl in history. Corbin Smith of The Daily Beast who wrote that the Patriots are “the preferred team of white nationalists,” must have stroked out over it.

This is Brady’s unprecedented sixth NFL championship. And Reagan lives on. Go Pats!

Daily Beast: Patriots Are ‘Preferred Team Of White Nationalists’

Published

on

The Daily Beast’s author Corbin Smith really went off on the New England Patriots before the Super Bowl. Unfortunately for him, the Pats won. In a very weird, racist screed that just oozed anger and hatred, Smith called the Patriots fans Team MAGA,” the living manifestation of “MAGA scum,” and, perhaps most stunning of all, “the preferred team of white nationalists.” He also called Boston a racist city for what it is worth. Boston is no such thing and neither are the Patriots.

Smith said that Patriots fans were complicit in the white nationalism and he really went after Tom Brady, coach Bill Belichick, and the team owner Robert Kraft. He calls them all “supporters” of President Trump. Smith referred to Brady as “unnerving” because at a rally he led a chant of “we’re still here.” Smith claims Brady is a “square-jawed grifter throwing red meat to the hogs at an alt-right rally, screaming at the libs who thought Nancy Pelosi and her gender warriors were gonna keep DECENT AMERICAN FOLKS from BEING HERE.”

Smith’s rant was epic:

“This past weekend, the Super Bowl-bound New England Patriots held a rally for their sweatiest fans at Gillette Stadium. Brady gave a speech. It ended… unnervingly.

“WE’RE STILL HERE! WE’RE STILL HERE! Obviously, Brady is referring to his aging, decrepit, cheating-ass squad’s progression to the big game. But, imagine you didn’t know anything about football, or who Tom Brady was, or anything like that. You would think that you were watching some square-jawed grifter throwing red meat to the hogs at an alt-right rally, screaming at the libs who thought Nancy Pelosi and her gender warriors were gonna keep DECENT AMERICAN FOLKS from BEING HERE.

“Of course, even if you do know stuff about Brady you may still think he’s on his way to pursuing this line of grifting. He flashed a red MAGA hat, an accouterment that is gaining more and more traction as a symbol of white nationalism in America, in his locker back in the primary days. He wasn’t the only one! Patriots’ Coach Bill Belichick wrote a goddamn letter to Trump right before the end of the campaign that basically amounted to an endorsement, that Trump then read on stage. And Pats’ owner Robert Kraft is also his pal, and was even shouted out at Trump’s pre-Inauguration dinner in D.C. for his most deep-pocketed donors.”

This was another part of Smith’s twisted argument:

“The whole institution of Boston sports, from root to stem, is tinged with the sort of racism that brought Trump into office. The Boston Red Sox were the last MLB team to desegregate, more than a decade after Jackie Robinson entered the league. The Sox’s first owner, Tom Yawkey, was an infamous racist whose speech was peppered with racial slurs. Larry Bird became a symbol of white resentment during his time in the NBA, his jersey appearing as a symbol of white entitlement to black spaces in Spike Lee’s Do the Right Thing. His large teammate, Kevin McHale, was spotted at a Trump rally during the election.

“Look, it doesn’t matter if the Patriots like it or not, they are the official team of American White Nationalism, the MAGA Boys On the Field. You can’t implicitly or explicitly support Trump, who reads speeches written by Stephen Miller as a matter of course, play in a market whose sporting culture is renowned for its racism, have a decade-plus organizational obsession with undersized white receivers, and be called, no shit, the Patriots, without getting the vile Fox News Soup that poisoned half the country on your shirt. Try to put on a bib of distancing yourself, deflecting questions, telling everyone your wife told you to stop talking about it, that shit isn’t gonna work. You’re the MAGA Kid. It’s on you forever. It stalks and haunts you.

“When you root for the Patriots, you are associating yourself with a virulent and revolting strain of politics that seeks to Make America Great Again—which is to say, white, European, English-speaking. And look, I understand if you’ve been rooting for Boston teams your whole life. Fandom is a hard drug to quit. But please, look at yourself, look at who these guys put out for, and reconsider. Think about if you would want to find yourself in a crowd of sweaty, white men chanting WE’RE STILL HERE while a Trump supporter egged you on. Are you one-hundred percent sure you’re comfortable with that?”

It was one of the most bizarre pieces I have ever read, even for The Daily Beast. Anyone who even remotely supports Trump is evidently a racist in his eyes. A MAGA hat seen with Brady is surely what set this guy off originally back in 2015. Brady may have been friends and a golfing buddy to Trump but he has never publically supported him.

Belichick wrote a “letter” to Trump that Trump often refers to in his campaign speeches. Kraft donated $1 million to Trump’s inauguration committee and got a “shout out” from Trump at the event. Kraft and Trump have since parted ways over a difference of opinion over NFL players kneeling during the National Anthem.

Social media tore Smith to shreds as they should have over this silliness. When President Trump wins a second term, look for this guy to accuse the entire nation of racism and white nationalism. He’s unhinged and needs help. But then, this is The Daily Beast we are speaking of.
