NFL’s ‘black’ and ‘white’ anthems will only promote divisiveness
At about $40 million each, the NFL employs more than a mere commissioner. In Roger Goodell, the league also contracts a social engineer who cowardly chooses to ignore the problems he should fix – the growing crime of NFL players – to assist in fixing those problems. nothing is broken.
To end, this season Goodell’s plan is to include two anthems of pregnancy at parade events – the traditional song, which I guess is now interpreted as the “white” national anthem, and the new and largely unknown addition as the “black” national anthem.
Think Goodell is dense enough to believe that such a separate but equal public relations scheme would promote goodwill rather than division.
What will happen this season? Should black fans sit still during the “white” national anthem? After all, Goodell implied that the standard version was not for blacks.
Should white customers continue to sit during the “black” national anthem? Goodell has made it clear that it is not played for the white fans of the NFL.
And what to do with lost souls, black and white, who can still feel as if we should all unite under one song? Should they seek racial counseling? Will group sessions be segregated?
Is there enough security for games willing to disrupt race-based brawls?
Why doesn’t Goodell have NFL stadiums subdivided by race? Are there race-specific entrances, fountains, franchise stands, parking, break rooms? His singing plan revives such a long history of racism.
Only a lunatic without foresight would consider such a plan, let alone enact it. But Goodell has allowed attending or watching an NFL game to become a political exercise, a way to express and inflame racial dissent instead of watching a football game.
And as a white minority – I’m also a Jew – who was raised to recognize wrong from right and never black from white – I’m tired, making it sick and tired, tacitly denounced as racist by working sports commissioners in deadly fear of being called racist by selectively blind people, offended, daydreaming and political ambitions.
If Goodell truly believes that the NFL’s white fans need to be woken up and stripped of their race, just say it, instead of installing disgusting reminders, starting with its own anthems. separate.
Boone is hard to find a way to lose
Of course, I have seen it. It’s hard to miss. Yankees manager Aaron Boone once again played bullpen roulette until he landed with a reliever to blow up the game. He does so every chance he gets, so until further notice, he will do so over and over again.
But he is no different from most MLB managers, who work on computer spreadsheets loaded with analytical fantasy scripts. Real game? Do not pay any attention to it. Don’t believe your lying eyes!
Thursday in Boston, the Yankees beat the Red Sox until Boone removed the reliever Luis Cessa – for no good reason.
When the Yankees went ahead, 3-1, in the eighth round, Cessa stepped in and made all, 1, 2, 3, just over five pitches. Perfect. And with DH, there’s no need to worry about hitting the pitcher.
But Boone got closer than indicated – don’t leave home without one! – Chad Green is in ninth. Soon the Yankees lost 5-4 in 10 games.
But the new standard, mind-grabbing inanimate remains the specialty of all homes. In the fourth installment, one can understand why Brett Gardner hit the .191 ball. He had a 2-0 winner against Tanner Houck who started off with no category, a forehand pitcher versus a left handed, so Gardner loaded up on energy to rotate Uranus and more so again.
The next throw very far inside it touched Gardner – but not before he swung his arm at it!
In the words of Maynard G. Krebs (G. stands for Walter): “What era are we living in!”
Last week, during the Mets-Pirates on SNY, Keith Hernandez talked about appearing on “Kiner’s Korner” and how Ralph Kiner gave his guests a $100 bill.
I always thought it was $50, but one night at Shea, as a child reporter in 1978, I was taught an early lesson about “watching money.”
The Pirates’ Bert Blyleven had just beaten the Mets, 1-0, as he returned to the field to do post-match radio broadcasts back in Pittsburgh. His captor, Ed Ott, stopped him to tell him they wanted him on Kiner’s show.
Blyleven shrugged and was about to continue back on the field, when Ott added, “They paid $50.”
Blyleven quickened 180 degrees and headed towards Kiner’s Korner.
It’s not just Boone: Third, in the Dodgers’ 8-6 win over the Giants, three painkillers totaling one hit allowed in four innings were substituted.
Second, Angels coach Joe Maddon, who managed to lose the 2016 World Series to the Cubs with silly pitching changes, removed Shohei Ohtani, placing him on the field after he had thrown six innings zero. scored. The Angels then lost to Athletics with a score of 4-1.
Mets broadcaster Wayne “Promo Code: Wayne” Randazzo is another person who sold his name, position, and reputation to a sports gambling site. It sounds like he wants everyone in his voice to have at least one bet on the game he’s calling.
Shyness with selective media
There are too many doubts attached to this Naomi Osaka story about Her severe fear of the media and the public gaze to swallow the whole.
Why then she posing for the cover of Sports Illustrated’s hubba-hubba swimsuit issue? Why does she avoid interviews except those given by the Japanese broadcaster she is contracted to?
And Friday, Osaka became the international venue for the opening ceremony of Japan’s Olympic Games.
Sorry for being so cynical, but when two plus two equals anything other than four…
Florida remains the headquarters of highly compromised Florida football players – student-athletes – employed by highly compromised Florida colleges.
The good people in Miami have found another. Safety Avantae Williams, a 20-year-old red-shirt freshman and four-star player, was fired from the team after being arrested last week on three counts of more serious assault on a pregnant girlfriend his 31 weeks.
ESPN Will Produce 10 Alternative TV Shows “Monday Night Football” that will appear on ESPN2 and stars Peyton and Eli Manning. How would you like to be the regular MNF team – Steve Levy, Brian Griese and Louis Riddick – and your network has the same support and commitment to you?
The YES all-time score box, which shows the hitter’s name as well as the pitcher, is still 50% more immediately useful than the SNY box, which only lists the pitcher’s name. There’s nothing wrong with “stealing” a better TV.
Readers Doug McBroom can’t wait for the first Guardians-Angels game. “Yes, Curtis Sliwa, warming up in the barn.”
It’s time for Brooks Koepka to stop stoking his childish feud with Bryson DeChambeau with animalistic taunts – though I doubt his Nike supporters love him for it.
According to conceivable sources, Capital One and Subway will combine to launch an advertising campaign with the catchphrase, “What’s in your sandwich?”
