Jack Dennis, Al made a statement that was supposedly to use YOUR words " tongue in cheek" he deserves condemnation as a wife beater, right? Ok then that's fine. So, even though I stated the other day that I did NOT believe you were a child molester, I can now change my mind and condemn you as a child molester since you too admitted to being a child molester in a " tongue in cheek" manner., right? Why don't you just grow the f@ ck up? You are so effing childish.
BTW as for me being "an enlightened hater" the only people I actively hate are in fact CHILD MOLESTERS who as I pointed out I would have no problem popping a cap in then surrendering myself to the police for whatever fate awaited me. Of course I also said I didn't believe you were one but since you want every one to condemn Al as a wife beater for the same kind of " tongue in cheek" statement he made I will now have to reconsider my belief in your denials. See how that works?
Z fister you are already screwed. You are one pathetic ignoramus. The other day you were saying Michelle Obama CONTROLLED what was served in school cafeterias which is a COMPLETE LIE. Today you are pointing out the media only covered the Little League World Series because Monet Davis, a young African American girl was pitching. It's apparent to anyone following the story of Monet Davis why it was news as to what she had accomplished. But you accuse the media of covering the subject just because she was Black. Yes, she is Black and a female, the first to make it that far in the Little League World Series. It is a historic first and as such it DESERVED the attention it got regardless of what ignoramuses like you think.
As for my connections, one thing for sure you have no connection to anything except to the world of video games. That's as much as you can handle when it comes to connections. Now go see if your mama can give your more time on her computer.
BTW you seem to have forgotten you are the one who claimed to OWN My a$$ the other day. It appears you must think you have a plantation or you think you are still living in the days when someone can OWN a Black person in the US. Maybe when you ask your mama to buy you a Black action figure to OWN so you can OWN a Black person 's a$$ you can ask her to buy you a model plantation on which to put your action figure. Since you now are fixated on plantations and OWNING people. You really are one pathetic dumba$$.
Rice became a public figure the day he signed his name to that multi million dollar contract. Whether he likes it or not as such he is held to a higher standard of scrutiny than the average person on the street. I think it was Charles Barkley who once complained that he didn't want to be a role model, too bad he didn't think of that when he signed that contract with the NBA. Unfortunately, for many young people out there athletes are the only role models they know. If the NFL, NBA, and all the rest of the Major Leagues are going to sign these people to MULTI - MILLION dollar contracts based on the revenue they can produce by attracting fans then they should expect those athletes to carry themselves respectably both on and off the field and court. Those players become the standard bearers for the Leagues.
In all of this the REAL victim was Rice's wife. It's sad she has had to relive that horrible incident over and over every time they have shown him dragging her out of that elevator in an unconscious state.
Jack Dennis since as you say "a thug culture permeates the NFL" just wondering which of the players other than Rice would you say are thugs? Peyton Manning? Tom Brady? Russell Wilson? Big Ben( he had his own issues not too long ago)? Tony Romo? Joe Flacco? Mattie Ice? Cam Newton? Or do you just reserve the thug classification for players that aren't the QB?
Z fister I don't expect one of your limited comprehension to understand. So just go back to your video games. Maybe your Mama can get you the new Madden 15 once they remove Rice from the line up.
This is one of those times when that right wing bullsh!t just won't get it !!
Rice is out supposedly indefinitely now but that was not the original punishment. He was not given an indefinite suspension until the actual video of what happened inside the elevator became public. It was soooo bad until the NFL had no choice then but to acknowledge a two game suspension for him was not the appropriate punishment.
The only difference between the so called thug culture of the NFL and the "thug culture" of the Repubs in Congress is the fact in the NFL theirs is an actual CONTACT sport.
This is one of those times when the appropriate response to the question: Am I my brother's keeper? Answer- YES!! Instead of slapping Rice on the wrist with a two game suspension he should have been given the opportunity to walk away from the NFL or told he had to go.
And to think Gudell thought Washington's name was going to be the worst controversy he was going to have to deal with at the beginning of the season. He has mishandled both but this one may cost him his job as it should.
