Sorry, I Don’t Trust The NFL, Jay-Z

So, let me begin this post by saying that I don’t know. Like, I don’t know the details of Jay-Z‘s deal with the NFL and I don’t know what the long-term effects will be. All I can say is, this entire scenario makes me feel uncomfortable, son. I mean, the NFL doesn’t have a strong history of giving a fuck about social issues, man. With that being said, am I really supposed to believe that they have the best intentions, fam? Sorry, but I’m not rolling yet, bruh.

Ok, for those who missed it, Jay-Z’s Roc Nation just signed an exclusive deal with the league. Based on their partnership, Jay-Z and company will help the NFL choose performers for various events during the season, including the Super Bowl. In addition, Roc Nation will help the league with their social justice efforts. Now, I won’t lie, son. On the real, I have a ton of fucking questions, man. First, since when did the NFL give a flying fuckity-fuck about social justice? Second, why wasn’t Colin Kaepernick factored into any of this “reform,” fam?

Look, from a business standpoint, this looks like a coup for Jay-Z. Shit, he essentially controls the league’s entertainment brand, bruh. But, on face value, it looks like he put commerce over protest, son. Listen, it’s now a well-known fact that the NFL blackballed Kaepernick for kneeling. As of this minute, he STILL doesn’t have a job playing football, man. Furthermore, he basically had to bring a lawsuit against the league to expose their injustice against him. All the while, Jay-Z was apparently working with the NFL behind the scenes. Hell, the rumor is that this deal was being crystalized over the past year. Meaning, while Kaepernick was literally fighting with the league, Jay-Z was secretly working with them. Nah, I don’t feel good about any of that, man.

To make matters worse, I didn’t like Jay-Z’s response to the initial criticism. Fam, he literally said “We forget that Colin’s whole thing was to bring attention to social injustice. In that case, this is a success. This is the next phase. There are two parts of protesting. You go outside and you protest, and then the company or the individual says, ‘I hear you. What do we do next?… So what are we gonna do? You know what I’m saying? Help millions and millions of people, or we get stuck on Colin not having a job.” Bruh, Jay-Z can’t decide what the “next phase” is. Especially not when the original protester is still being treated unfairly.

Son, Kaepernick’s suit against the NFL literally concluded this year. Am I supposed to believe that after battling that man for so long, the league is actually sincere about social justice? Frankly, it’s easy for Jay-Z to say that we’re “past kneeling.” Real talk, he’s not the one who’s had his career destroyed in the process. Man, there are still a ton of owners in the league, like Jerry Jones, who hated everything that Kaepernick represented. On top of that, the owners are the ones who really control Commissioner Roger Goodell. So, sorry if I don’t believe that they want to alter anything about how they do business.

In the end, I really wish that something positive comes out of this situation. However, I’m not getting my hopes up, fam. Ultimately, the NFL has shown on countless occasions that they don’t give a fuck about social issues, bruh. By and by, I think Jay-Z is being a little flippant with his reaction to people’s questions. At the end of the day, Kaepernick was trying to bring awareness to racial injustice in America. Keeping it a buck, I don’t see how planning a Super Bowl Halftime Show will help with that, son. But, only time will tell. Just please, don’t disappoint us, Jay-Z. That is all. LC out.

Get The NFL The F*ck Outta Here!

Keeping it a buck, I’m having a REALLY hard time holding my anger at bay, son. I mean, organizations like the NFL aren’t even trying to hide their bigotry, man. At this point, I truly hope the (mostly Black) players understand what’s going on here: the team owners don’t give a FUCK about racial injustice, fam. All in all, by approving a policy that forces players to stand for the National Anthem, Roger Goodell and company have effectively spit on the idea of a peaceful protest.

Ok, for those who are unaware, the NFL just pulled some DEFCON 1 fuckery, bruh. So, the owners unanimously voted for a rule that forces all on-field team personnel to stand for the anthem. Basically, if any player or staff member is on the field and doesn’t stand, they will be fined. Furthermore, if anybody wants to “exercise” their right to protest, they have to stay behind in the locker room. *Sigh* The league has essentially trampled on the First Amendment, son. They’ve taken away people’s ability to freely express themselves.

Look, let’s just cut the nonsense, man. On the real, giving folks the “option” to stay in the locker room is basically their way of saying “we don’t want anybody to see this little protest.” At this point, I don’t know how many times I’ve written about this, fam. But, the call to kneel, pioneered by Colin Kaepernick, was NEVER about the fucking flag, bruh. It was NEVER about our troops, son. For God‘s sake, it was a SILENT way to show solidarity with all of the people of color who were and are brutalized by an injustice system. Now, thanks to morons like Donald Trump, the movement has become nothing more than political fodder. All I know is, this country is hell-bent on stifling freedom, folks.

In the end, everyone has a choice to make, son. The American public has to decide if we’re going to keep supporting a valueless dictatorship. The NFL players have to decide if they’re going to remain silent while their rights and beliefs are stepped on. Ultimately, I was done with the NFL last season, man. I mean, I’m a diehard New York Giants fan, but I couldn’t bring myself to watch any of their games, fam. By and by, I can’t lend my support to a league that doesn’t give a flying fuck about racial equality, bruh. Side note, major shout-out to Christopher Johnson, CEO of the New York Jets, for offering to pay any player fines. All I can say is, he’s a real one, people. In any case, fuck the NFL and anybody who supports them, folks. LC out.

P.S. I hope the haters don’t think I haven’t been paying attention to Kaepernick’s collusion case, son. Shit, he’s already uncovered information that several teams viewed him as a starting quarterback. So, we can put that whole “he’s not good enough to play in the league” bullshit to bed, man. Listen, we all know why he doesn’t have a job, fam: the owners wanted to punish the “uppity Negro,” bruh. *Sigh* This country is the fucking worst, people. That is all.

The NFL Inmates Running The Prison

*Sigh* Man, why do White folks always do the most, son? Like, seriously, do a lot of them even think for a millisecond before they speak? Do they ever consider the implications of their words before they open their mouths? Or is it just that they don’t give a flying fuck, fam? In any case, Bob McNair, owner of the Houston Texans, said some fuckity-fuck shit and needs to continue being dragged for it, bruh. With that being said, here… we… go!

Ok, before I continue, allow me to play make-believe for a second. Now, just for a moment, let’s pretend like McNair’s “can’t have the inmates running the prison” comments weren’t about race. Look, even in this scenario, his comments were disrespectful, son. Keeping it a buck, that’s not the way anyone should treat their employees, man. Basically, he’s saying that the concerns of his players don’t matter. Frankly, in his eyes, their only job is to shut up and play, fam. All in all, he isn’t worried about their interests as long as his bottom line is met. In this regard, that makes him a terrible boss, bruh.

Now, let’s get back to race, son. Listen, not a soul in this world can tell me that there wasn’t any racial bias embedded in McNair’s statements. Look, we’re talking about a league that’s 70% Black, man. In addition, we’re talking about athletes who are bringing attention to social injustice. So, am I supposed to believe that a wealthy White owner just innocently made these type of comments about Black workers? Fam, get the fuuuuuuuuck outta here! On the real, McNair said what he said because he thought he was in a safe space. He thought he could let those type of remarks fly because he was around Roger Goodell and a bunch of other owners. Shit, facts are facts, bruh.

Listen, I hope ALL of these players are paying close attention right now, son. This is exactly how these executives feel about them, man. Shit, players put their bodies and their livelihoods on the line and this is type of response they get, fam. Look, this is why people call players million-dollar slaves, bruh. They’re good enough to run up and down a field for their owners, but not good enough to have their views respected. By and by, no one should feel comfortable with that paycheck, folks. For one, their money is peanuts compared to the owners. Also, the powers that be can pull the plug on that revenue any time they feel like, people. *Sigh* Welcome to the real world, kid.

In the end, fuck Bob McNair, son! Ultimately, he can take his apology and shove it, man! I mean, let’s be real, fam. He only backtracked because he got called out for it. In his heart of hearts, he meant that shit, bruh. Now, when it’s all said and done, he’s only sorry that he got caught, people. Nothing more. LC out.

How The F*ck Did The New England Patriots Win?!?

Man, what the hell did I watch last night? Seriously, how the FUCK did the New England Patriots pull this shit off, son? More importantly, how the FUCK did the Atlanta Falcons lose this Super Bowl?! In my 30-plus years on this planet, I’ve NEVER seen a crazier comeback. All in all, as much as it pains me to say this, Tom Brady is without question the greatest quarterback of all time. In addition, Bill Belichick is absolutely the greatest coach of all time. Now, before I continue vomiting, allow me to try and reconcile what I just witnessed yesterday.

First, let me start with the Falcons. As far as I’m concerned, this team is no longer allowed to have fans. Not even my greatest enemy deserves to be a fan of a team that can blow a 28-3 lead. 28-3? 28 TO FUCKING 3?!? How on God‘s green Earth could this squad fuck up a 98.9% chance of winning?! Before this game, the largest deficit a team ever overcame was 10 points. THESE MOTHERFUCKERS WERE UP BY 25 POINTS, MAN!! After taking that 28-3 lead, these clowncakes never scored again and lost 34-28. I mean, these losers couldn’t even get a field goal? A fucking safety? Anything?! Man, that’s literally the most insane comeback I’ve ever watched, son. Real talk, to all of my friends and family in Atlanta, the Falcons don’t deserve any fandom from this point forward. They just disrespected the city in the WORST way.

Now, let’s talk about the Patriots. I mean, what can I say here, son? Despite being a diehard New York Giants fan, I have to call a spade a spade, man. Brady and Belichick are the greatest duo in NFL history. Brady now have five rings and Belichick has seven, when including the two rings he won as the Giants’ defensive coordinator. At this point, they have damn near every record imaginable. There’s literally no disputing their greatness, son. Look, I don’t use the term “hater” lightly, but if anyone still has negative things to say about the Patriots, they’re just haters. These dudes have done it all, man. There’s no one else in their league or even close to it.

In the end, there really isn’t much else to say here. The only downside to this victory is the fact that deplorables like Donald Trump and Richard Spencer support the Patriots. It’s literally never cool when White supremacists are onboard the train. In any case, as I’ve previously stated, Tom Brady is indeed the greatest quarterback of all time. However; keep one thing in mind, son. The Patriots’ historic greatness makes Eli Manning and my Giants even more mythical, son. We’re the only team to ever beat him and Belichick. And we did it twice, bitch! I’m perfectly content with my team being the two glorious stains on their record, man. Good day.

P.S. How sick was Roger Goodell yesterday? After the whole Deflategate fiasco, he still had to hand the Vince Lombardi Trophy over to Robert Kraft and company. On the real, I’m no fan of the Patriots, but I’m even less of a fan of Goodell. With that being said, it was great watching him being forced to swallow his shallow pride. LC out.
