Kay Adams, one of the few good things about NFL Network

There are many reasons that the NFL Network sucks in a sucktacular way. First, why the Hell can they not show old games, and no I do not mean a game from last year. I am talking about all the classic playoff games from the past. Dolphins-Raider in 1974? No. Chiefs-Dolphins from ’71? How about the Broncos-Browns classics in the ’86 and ’87 AFC title games? No. Cowboys-Packers from 1966? No The list goes on and on and on. Instead of re-airing these gems we get talking heads, more talking heads and lost of blah, blah, blah.

Perhaps the most obnoxious thing on the NFL Network, is their version of the Today Show/Good Morning America. Weekday mornings we get Good Morning Football with four talking heads saying, well, not much. This show is irritating for a myriad of reasons. There is former player Nate Burleson, who spends a bit too much time in front of mirrors. That would be fine if this were a show on Men who obsess over fashion. Then there is Kyle Brandt a former soap opera star, because no one breaks down the NFL better than a soap star right? He is also a former producer of the Jim Rome show, and a former cast member of MTV’s Real World, and fights with Burleson for mirror time. Then there is the male version of Rachel Maddow, Peter Schlager. What, don’t believe me? See for yourself

Good Lord can someone tell this guy to lay off the eye makeup? He may be great at his job, but man he just has that face even small children and priests want to punch. 

There is, however one redeeming thing about this show. Kay Adams who is adorable.

Why can’t the NFL Network just adjust their show Good Morning Football a bit. keep Adams, fire the two metrosexuals, and Mr. Maddow, and here is a great idea focus on highlights Monday mornings, yes actual highlights, NOT talking heads. Make the show maybe an hour long Tuesday-Friday so they can get to showing classic games, and some other things they do well, like their Top Ten series, and their A Football Life series. If people want the Today Show, or Good Morning America, those shows are there. But the NFL Network ought to be focused on the NFL product shouldn’t it? Heck, if the NFL can get their own network right, maybe they could even hire referees that understand the rules, and maybe one day we could even see a catch be a catch again? 

Who else is disgusted by the NFL’s political hypocrisy

There are a LOT of reasons not to be an NFL fan anymore. Refs that do not know the rules, rules that have made determining what the Hell a catch is impossible. Then there is the idiocy of “Deflategate” Good Freaking Grief how poorly the NFL handled what should have been a simple fine to the Patriots. Then there is the politics the NFL. Like banning Rush Limbaugh from being a part of an ownership group. Like refusing to air an ad from Daniel Defense during a Superbowl. Now though, the NFL’s hypocrisy on “activism” is showing. Dylan Gwynn shares his thoughts which are spot on

As written here before, there was never any real expectation that the NFL would allow the Dallas Cowboys to wear the “Arm-in-Arm” decals on their helmets, to show support for the Dallas Police Department during the regular season.

Yet, there was some hope that the league would at least allow the Cowboys to wear the decals during the preseason. Well, it appears that isn’t happening:

“Via Clarence E. Hill, Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, team V.P. Stephen Jones said Wednesday that the league won’t be allowing the team to attach the round sticker to the back of its helmets for the upcoming slate of four glorified scrimmages.

Right or wrong, the decision reflects at least in part the delicate balance the league is trying to strike regarding issues that could be regarded, plausibly or not, as controversial. Should it be controversial to oppose violence committed against police and gratuitous violence committed by police? Absolutely not. But the league is sufficiently worried that it could be to keep the decal off the helmets.

If the NFL really wants to be non-political, at least they should take that pledge seriously, but consistency is, well tough I guess

Moreover, the NFL’s hypocrisy is also on full display, considering they had no problem allowing Beyoncé to perform her anti-police song “Formation” at the Super Bowl halftime show. A song whose video features a wall with the phrase “Stop Shooting Us” written on it, a scene with Beyoncé sitting on top of a police car that is sinking into the water, and a shot where a child dances in front of a squad of policeman in riot gear.

The NFL allowed that to happen, not in a mere regular season football game, but during the halftime show of the most watched television event of the year. That’s the platform the NFL gives to anti-police activists. What do police officers get from the NFL?

So, a racist, cop bashing performance by Beyonce is OK, but helmet stickers honoring heroic police officers is not? Screw that, and screw you Roger Goodell

Christian NFL Star Benjamin Watson: Black Lives Don’t Matter When ‘Politicians Enable Generational Dependency’

NFL Star: Black Lives Don’t Matter When ‘Politicians Enable Generational Dependency’ – CNS

.

.
New Orleans Saints’ tight end Benjamin Watson used his Facebook account Tuesday to call attention to his views on the Black Lives Matter movement. A view that is critical of abortion, fathers who abandon their children and politicians who “enable generational dependency.”

Watson, the author of “Under Our Skin: Getting Real About Race – And Getting Free From The Fears and Frustrations That Divide Us,” is using social media to link people to a blog post where he discusses his thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement.

“Some contention is with the very phrase itself. This is problematic, though, because ‘black lives matter’ in context is clearly comparative to them not mattering. It obviously does not exist in a vacuum thus a response of ‘all lives matter’ is disingenuous at best and outright insulting at worst,” Watson’s blog post from late August reads. “It SHOULD go without saying that ‘all lives matter,’ including black lives, unborn lives, elderly lives, affluent and poor lives, Christian and atheist lives. But, today, in light of our present societal struggles and racial tension the question is worth addressing. As Americans, do black lives matter to us?”

Later in the post, the outspoken Christian athlete focuses on some of the ways he feels Black lives don’t and do matter in this country. Here are some selected excerpts:
.

“Black lives don’t matter when neighbors, black neighbors, kill each other. It’s no surprise that people generally commit crimes against the people they live nearest to. Even so, the truth is that we treat people no better than the value we place on them and the dignity we have in ourselves.”

“Black lives don’t matter when some politicians enable generational dependency, stifling individual responsibility while others completely deny the importance of programs that are needed to help the marginalized. A crutch is the vital friend of the injured, it’s ultimate purpose to one day be laid aside as it’s former dependent walks on their own. If it oversteps its purpose the user will no longer feel the need to walk. Erroneously, they may not even think they can ever do so. Consequently, a stagnant, hopeless life seems to matter less.”

“Black lives don’t matter when we support and engage in the termination of our most important resource and our hope for a brighter future, our unborn children.”

“Black lives don’t matter when their very real and documented negative experiences with law enforcement, employment opportunities, and educational funding is belittled and dismissed. Compassion for another’s experience, even if foreign to us is paramount when encountering situations we can’t understand.”

“Black lives don’t matter when fathers selfishly abandon their children and their children’s mothers, teaching them that family is not a priority, and almost ensuring the cycle will repeat itself. A strong foundation gives children the fortitude to weather the storms they are sure to face throughout their lives.”

“But BLACK LIVES MATTER, when we look at our black children and imperfectly strive to show them the compassion, love, leadership, hard work and sacrifice a man should exhibit in hopes that our sons will carry the banner further and our daughters will set the bar high for their future spouses.”

“BLACK LIVES MATTER when we understand that the black community can not be characterized by headlines of a single story, because it is filled with multiple stories from millions of contrasting individuals.”

“BLACK LIVES MATTER when we look at our white children, and realize that they are internalizing and will imitate every attitude, action, comment, and expression we make when the next racially charged incident occurs or when we engage with others on a daily basis, who don’t look like us. They are future change agents as well. Some of the largest victories in through abolition and civil rights came because of the compassion and activism of our white brothers and sisters.”

“BLACK LIVES MATTER when we are willing to stand up to our friends and family when they make racist comments and jokes that are dead wrong. AND they matter when we refuse to flippantly use words created to demean and degrade even if we feel we have a right to.”

“The attitudes inherited by our different heritages can breed in us unhealthy attitudes if left unchecked, including the foolishness of supremacy and the myth of inferiority. The cross bridges the gap, the power of the blood penetrating deep into our wickedness, convicting us, forgiving us, and reconciling us to God and subsequently reconciling us to each other. Only in Christ do the temporal distinctions between us fade, as our oneness in him takes precedence over our color creed and culture and our allegiance to Him compels us to make those who matter to Him matter most to us.”
