The hypocrisy of NFL commissioner Roger “never penalize white executives” Goodell continues….
One of the most exciting plays in all of sports, the kickoff return, was dealt a severe blow yesterday as the league officially moved kickoffs to the 35-yard-line; thus drastically reducing the number of returns….
If I were the Bears, I’d be furious; because they have the greatest kick returner of all time in Devin Hester. But with this stupid new rule, his effectiveness will be neutralized….
Goodell claims the purpose of the rule is safety, but he’s lying. If he wants to reduce injuries, then why was he pushing for an 18-game schedule?….
The players are already banged up, tired and susceptible to injuries in a 16-game season, so an additional two games literally guarantees more serious injuries than ever before….
Yet the Commissioner didn’t care….
The NFL was already becoming the “No Fun League” with the elimination of end zone celebrations and heavy fines for clean hits; now they’re taking away kickoff returns….
Hopefully people will still be gambling heavily to keep the ratings up, because the product on the field is in rapid decline….
I’ve said this many times before, but someday before I pass away I hope to have a friend as loyal as Greg Anderson….
For the third time, Anderson is off to prison for refusing to testify in the Barry Bonds witch hunt and will remain behind bars until the trial concludes….
I know everyone believes Barry has Anderson on the payroll and Greg will be richly rewarded once he’s foung not guilty, but with the Feds harrassing and watching Anderson, I find this difficult to believe….
The Government is so desperate to get Anderson they’ve actually sent agents to his mother’s house, where they kicked in the door and threatened to throw her in jail….
They’ve also threatened his wife, other relatives and friends….
So you know they’re watching Anderson’s bank records and probably have his phones and computers bugged….
If he suddenly becomes wealthy after the trial, the Feds will be all over him like Dave Smith on a martini….
Especially if someone else is buying….
I find it difficult to believe Bonds will fork over millions to Anderson after the trial….
In my opinion, I believe Anderson has grown to hate the government for their continued harrassment of him and his family and he’s never going to cooperate….
God bless him….
Who among us would do the same if faced with similar circumstances? It’s easy to say you would not rat out a friend, but if faced with prison, how many would stay loyal?….
And if your mother and other family members were being harrassed and threatened, I’m certain almost all of us would have taken a deal and testified….
Federal prison is no joke and Anderson probably faces extermely difficult circumstances. Since he’s embarrassed the government and probbaly destroyed their case, do you think he’s in protective custody? Don’t you think the Feds have told him he’ll be sent to live among the worst prisoners possible in the course of their harrassment?….
I’d probably crack, as would 99% of the population….
But in spite of it all, Anderson remains a rock and going back to prison. If I can ever show this kind of character and be this good a friend, I’d be very proud….
I’ve never had a friend like him and in awe….
