NFL Accomplice in Racial Hatred

As of yet, the National Football League has failed to fine players who had their fists raised while the pregame national anthem was playing during the first weekend of pro football competition.  The raised black fist salute is a symbol that was used by The Black Panthers, a militant hate group notorious for taking armed action against the police in California in the 1960’s.

Failure to fine these players at least implicitly shows league support for the racially divisive actions, as the NFL administrative officials declined a request from the Dallas Cowboys to put stickers on the back of their helmets that showed support for the slain officers in Dallas, who were killed by a gunman who was apparently agitated by so-called racial discrimination toward people of color by police officials across America.

Silence by the league in regard to the raising of the fist in the form of the black power salute shows a complicit acceptance of black racism, or at least a blind ignorance toward what the symbol actually means. If the National Football League fails to ban such symbols of hatred being displayed during their games, thousands of life-long NFL fans are considering a boycott of the game, and rightly so. NFL owners have a right to let their league engage in left wing Marxist politics if they so desire, but it will come at a cost of losing the patronage of its most loyal, patriotic, law abiding citizens, quite possibly for a lifetime.

Thursday Night Football Breakdown: Tampa Bay Buccaneers Vs. Atlanta Falcons

Shayn Roby’s Take: This one could go either way. The Bucs are 0-2, but have been in both games and could have just as easily been 2-0 with a couple of breaks going the other way.  Atlanta just barely beat New Orleans in week one, and could just as easily be 0-2, instead of 1-1.

By Andrew Kahn

Week 3?s Thursday night matchup features two NFC South teams that made headlines for all the wrong reasons last season. The Falcons were among the biggest surprises, going 4-12 after three straight playoff appearances. The Bucs, dealing with far lower expectations, also went 4-12, after starting 0-8. Along the way, quarterback Josh Freeman was released, the team dealt with a MRSA outbreak in the locker room, and fan apathy grew. After the season, coach Greg Schiano and the general manager were fired. Eyeing bounce-back seasons, Atlanta is 1-1 with a win over divisional foe New Orleans. Tampa Bay is 0-2 after low-scoring home losses.

When Tampa Bay has the ball:

Apparently impressed by his play in Chicago, new coach Lovie Smith has gone with 35-year-old career back-up Josh McCown as his starting quarterback over Mike Glennon, who was coming off a decent rookie year. In the…

Ravens point to ‘football cocoon’ as key to victory over Steelers

The Baltimore Ravens were able to focus on football and try to put the Ray Rice ordeal behind them as they pointed to a ‘football cocoon’ as the key to their 26-6 trouncing of the Pittsburgh Steelers.  Lots of puzzling things are going on in the front office of the Ravens and in the NFL office, but the Ravens somehow were able to hold it all together on the field.  Conservative/ Libertarian syndicated Los Angeles talk show host and columnist Larry Elder summed it all up with this Twitter Tweet.
