The NFL forgot about the Power of the People

Protest

Scribe:  N. Tru Bass

Last week I stopped watching ESPN altogether, I didn’t have any appreciation to the way Jemele Hill was treated by the network.  Without having any plan to, I also didn’t watch a single football game this week.  Now, to put this in perspective, I haven’t missed a day of ESPN since I was 16-17-years-old and I’m a diehard Giants fan. 

Bigger than all that, I want justice for everyone.  Not, just those people that I can identify with, but everyone.  The apparent Colin Kaepernick blackballing is unfair and it is not right.

**BREAKING NEWS**Trump Openly leverages NFL with Tax Status

The Bully Plan is Working

Scribe: N. Tru Bass

Email: ntb@thethinkering.com

Donald Trump intends not only to run the country with an oligarchical iron fist, but apparently he intends to control as many corporations as he can as well. Last year Colin Kaepermnick sat during the national anthem in protest of you unarmed Americans being assassinated by police with no prosecution of the actions.

Trump said recently that any player who doesn’t stand for the National Anthem should be fired. Last week Roger Goodell the NFL commissioner said that he expects all players to stand. Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys said every player that doesn’t stand will not play. It sounds like to me Trump has the owners jumping through hoops to satisfy his urges. They(owners) are basically grabbing the Pus*y of the players, proving that they are the supreme rulers.

As the NFL football Giants continue their losing ways in my opinion due to a weak quarterback misery continues.  This week the big news is star Odell Beckham, Jrs ankle finally collapsed ending his season without a new contract.   The rallied for a new contract through the top of the season to no avail, the team turned a deaf ear to his request. 

MetLife Stadium was an unusual place on Sunday as the Giants fall to 0-5 on the season.  Last season the team finished 11-5 winning a playoff bid in the process.

Giant's Changes will not be Easy

The New York football Giants have opened the2016-2017 season with zero wins through four games.  After completing a defensive overhaul two years ago, The Giants are still trying to figure it out. 

Falling to 0-4 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 25-23 again deflating the Giants fan base.   Seemingly, the single bright spot is Odell Beckham, Jr. who has been demanding a pay raise. And that raise has fallen on deaf ears. 

On paper the Giants appear to be a division leader but in reality is struggling to get a W and at this point are willing to participate on the wheel of fortune to get one.   Big Blue seems to have lost their identity.  Not only are the fans deflated the team is too.

N. Tru Bass: Racist NFL fans your Slip is Showing

Ray Lewis Statue

In an attempt to placate a dedicated organization, in earlier months former Baltimore Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis advised Colin Kaepernick to put his political views aside and just play football.

After dropping to both knees during Sunday’s protest a petition to remove the man who changed the modern LB position’s statue has to be protected by state police. Fans who continue to use the excuse of a player or former player in this case of disrespecting the flag or the anthem to make threats and cause mayhem.

Why don’t racist fans just say, we want to do whatever to you and we want you to shut up and take it. That would cut through and clarify so that we all could make a decision as to how things should go from there.

Why did the Arizona crowd Boo during Cowboy's protests?

Cowboys Protest

Why did the Arizona fans boo when the Cowboys kneeled before the national anthem and flag ceremony? 

It’s simply mass hypnosis. 

Some people fall under the belief that the right is right and some the left.  Some identify with white is right and others think differently.  However, these superficial associations have seemingly forced people to fight for issues they hardly understand. 

Mr. Trump celebrated the angry crowds’ behavior saying, “(booing) was loudest I have ever heard.  Great anger.”

NBA Finals MVP, Kevin Durant has been under the media microscope since he sent out a series of tweets in which he is speaking about his old team the Oklahoma City Thunder and why he left.  Interestingly, in the tweets he used third person voice. 

When asked if he got accounts mixed up or simply forgot to log off his verified account he said no, it’s just the way he said it.  No trickery involved. 

He talked about his former coach Billy Donovan saying, "didn't like the organization or playing for Billy Donovan," which has caused him to not eat or sleep since the incident according to recent reports.  The storm launched when an anonymous complainer said, "give me one legitimate reason for leaving okc other than getting a championship.”  He immediately deleted the responses.

A legend has passed.  Jake LaMotta the one time boxing champion has died at the age of 95.  The tough pugilist life was repeated with the actor legend Robert De Niro in the film “Raging Bull.” 

He died in Miami on Tuesday in Miami according to his family.   

The brawler was a product of New York City and first learned he had something special on the mean streets of New York and in reform school as a youth.  The 5’8” fighter went home with a middleweight championship belt in 1949, and was at the top of the list of some of the most successful attempts at the great white hope.

As an American elder he once told the Chicago Sun-Times, “The punches never hurt me. My nose was broken six times, my hands six times, a few fractured ribs. Fifty stitches over my eyes. But the only place I got hurt was out of the ring.”
