  • The Krapperdick Follies Continues – a Brief Return to Football Sunday

    by The Barbarian ( 28 Comments › )

    So it turns out Colin The Krapperdick had a tryout or some interest expressed in him by the Washington Redskins, who in the end took a pass. Of course, Richard Sherman, former Seattle Seahawk now with the 49ers, expressed his outrage, and was no doubt surprised to find out no one gave a crap what HE thought either.  How the mighty have fallen.  Maybe his mom can make him some soup.

    Meanwhile, of course, various news outlets have taken the latest refusal to hire this has-been as proof of the League’s racism in general, and the Redskins’ in particular. By the way, whatever happened to that name controversy anyway? I thought King Barry and the Beknighteds of the Round Congress were going to force Snyder to change the name! After all, CBS and ESPN were on record as REFUSING to use the team’s name in their broadcasts. Amazing how team Washington didn’t buckle to that kind of pressure. Don’t they know the media has power?  Apparently not, especially in this instance. Redskins completed their season without incident. And the next one, and the next one. In fact that controversy died right about the time Sir Harry of Reid and King Barry departed the podium (well, Sir Harry at any rate; we’ll never be rid of either King Barry or his wife, Mooch Antoinette).

    But it does beg the question. Why would Mr. Social Justice Warrior even want to play for a team that had such a stigma attached to his name? In fact, at last count, several have actually offered him a tryout – the Ravens, the Broncos and the Redskins; the Seahawks had offered a tryout and then withdrew – probably because they already have the requisite amount of flag disrespect in the form of Michael Bennett so that slot was pretty much filled.

    But once the Redskins took a pass, Sports Twitter was abuzz with the snark that it didn’t matter, as in the end Colin was going to be collecting so much money from the NFL for their collusion in keeping him OUT of the League, that Colin will have the last laugh.  What is it about liberals that they are staking all of their future happiness and schadenfreude on collusion of some kind. Mind you, this is the same League that forgave and rehired Michael Vick, dog abuser and paroled felon.  Because at the time he left the League for a hiatus making license plates, he was still an excellent quarterback.  There was no collusion to keep him out of League.  He simply doesn’t have the goods.  News is that he plans to depose President Trump and Vice President Pence, claiming that their opinion of kneelers are keeping him out of football.  Actually, Krap, the American PUBLIC’s opinion of kneelers may or may not be keeping you out of the league.  Yes, the arbitrator said the lawsuit could proceed.  But a spineless arbitrator and a court of law is different.  And the standard of proof is high.  And it takes nine people at least to find for you.

    But in the end, when it comes time for Krap’s deposition to be taken, he’ll have to explain why he walked away from a multi-million-dollar contract with the 49ers as a backup because he thought he should be a starter.  Dude, your own TEAM didn’t think you were a starter, and that was in an offense designed to show your particular skills.  Hell, when you did have to get off the bench and start, your interceptions were a higher number than total offensive yards gained.  The League doesn’t give a damn if you kneel – the networks wised up and stopped reporting it, to bring back the viewers.  Now you and your buddies can kneel to your heart’s content.  In fact, your cohort, Eric Reid, who is almost as much of an asshat as you are, was able to be signed by another team when the 49ers released him.

    In the end, though, where’s the legal theory that says any team has to sign a player because they believe they’re good enough to play in the league?  When the openly gay and openly obnoxious Michael Sam was drafted next to last in 2014 by the St. Louis Rams, despite being SEC player of the year, he completely washed out and was traded to the Dallas Cowboys for use on their practice squad.   He “retired” shortly after that, citing “mental health” reasons.  Because when you suck at your job, make sure it’s someone else’s fault.  RG III, Johnny Manziel, Jamarcus Russell – all lost their starter jobs for various reasons.  Russell was never hired by another team after being released by the Raiders.  Surprisingly, he didn’t sue the NFL for collusion.  RG III has been happy to accept a back-up job.  Manziel may make his way back, who knows?

    Of course, the fun part is there is some supreme irony in all this that my friends (and there are many) who are both patriots and 49er fans are enjoying.  Krap got the starter’s job when Jim Harbaugh benched the 49ers then starting QB, Alex Smith.  He then went on the take the 49ers to their 6th Super Bowl and led them to their first and only loss in the Championship Game.  Of course, it wasn’t his fault then either.  It was the power failure.  And Smith moved on to have a great career with Kansas City.  How wonderfully karmic that NOW Krap isn’t considered good enough to replace or back up the Redskins’ QB that suffered a season-ending injury – Alex Smith.

      Apologies for going off topic so soon, but I have learned that if I put things off they disappear.
      From the voice of Europe via blazingcatfur on the UN Global migration pact. Yinzes were having surgery to remove your tonsils and just woke up to find they removed a kidney and a lung.

      “For months proponents of the UN Migration Pact told us that the pact was non-binding. The response to the many citizens of nation states worldwide having signed country specific petitions was that it was non-binding so there was nothing to worry about, it was going to be good.

      The immensely opposed and disastrous document declares unlimited migration to be treated as a human right, thereby deprecating the term ‘illegal migrants’, and criminalises any criticism of migration as hate speech.

      The points that raised alarm for most was that it seeks to eliminate all forms of dissent. Media organisations for example, should they criticise anything to do with migration would lose access to state funding. People would be labelled as racists or guilty of hate speech which will now be criminalised. This pact will literally erase our borders.

      The question I’ve been asking is if the countries that refused to sign, are they still bound to it being members of the UN. Most people were of the mind that it would only affect the signatories.

      Now we know. In a frank exchange with Germany’s Chancellor Angela Merkel, Mr. Hebner of the AfD drew out an admission that it is, in fact, legally binding. As well, that it will be adopted as rule for all UN Member states once enacted.

      Mr. Hebner asks: “You can see for yourself clearly that during the conference, the spokesperson for Morocco emphasised that the agreement was legally binding. He said clearly, in a literal sense, that there is a corresponding legal bond for all nations taking part as well as an obligation of implementation. You and your delegation did not raise a single word of objection to that statement but idly accepted it. I would like to emphasise that the parliamentary motion was not presented at the conference. “

      Ms. Merkel’s response not only confirmed what we at Voice of Europe have been suspecting all along, the claim it is indeed binding, but that once voted and accepted it will be valid for all:

      “So then, during the UN General Assembly next week, the pact will once again be up for debate and a decision will be made on whether to accept it. At this time, a member state can demand a vote. When two-thirds of the represented countries agree then it is valid for all. That’s how majority decision-making works.”

      In the words of Coaching legend Chuck Knoll:

      It’s time to get on with your life’s work.

      What talents, other than over rated QB from upple middle America do you have, Colin? Oh, none…ok, repeat after me: Do you want fries with that?

      It’s a shame that your white parents didn’t make you get a real degree in college. Maybe you can sweep up in your girlfriend’s mosque?

      Nothing is legally binding if there is no enforcement arm.

      The Deep State claims another scalp…

      Ryan Zinke Resignation Letter Blames ‘Meritless’ Investigations

      Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke said that the investigations into whether he used his position for personal gain created a distraction to the point where he feels he is unable to serve effectively.

      Zinke said “vicious and politically motivated attacks” against him had “created an unfortunate distraction” in fulfilling the agency’s mission, according to the resignation letter dated Saturday obtained by the Associated Press.

      The secretary of the Interior is facing federal investigations related to his travel, political activity, and potential conflicts of interest.

      Zinke maintains his innocence and continues to fight the allegations of any wrongdoing.

      In his resignation letter, Zinke also called the attacks “meritless and false claims,” saying that “to some, truth no longer matters.”

      their desktop platform isn’t ready yet – smartphones only. I can’t get the search function to find anybody and I can’t see comments to the posts from people I do follow, i.e. Candace Owens.

      I’ve been meaning to ask you. The Great Flu epidemic of 1918. Did you ever hear the theory that a lot of people (in the west) died not from the flu but from internal bleeding caused by over-prescribed aspirin?

      Hmmm possible but not very likely as the stomach and rectal bleeds would be pretty obvious
