I still can't believe what a bunch of wimps and cowards the suits over at the NFL have turned out to be.
So now comes a rule which penalizes players for calling each other the N-word, because, as they say, it's the right thing to do. But they are too coward and afraid of a powerful owner to demand that the football team in Washington D.C. change their name.
The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has declared that the term "Redskin" is derogatory, Native Americans say it is offensive to them, and yet, the clowns in the NFL office continue to treat us like we are stupid when it comes to this issue.
“The Washington Redskins name has … from its origin represented a positive meaning distinct from any disparagement that could be viewed in some other context,” Goodell wrote. “For the team’s million of fans and customers, who represent one of America’s most ethnically and geographically diverse fan bases, the name is a unifying force that stands for strength, courage, pride and respect.”
That, my friends, was pure bull s**t!
Finally, I want to write about men behaving badly a little bit.
I will start with the aforementioned NFL, where a star running back from the Baltimore Ravens has been charged with knocking down his fiancé and dragging her through a hotel lobby.
If true, (and I have every reason to believe that it is, because videos don't lie) the NFL has to act and send a very strong message that this will not be tolerated.
And then there is this frightening story coming out of upstate New York about a couple of really sick dudes.
"Two upstate New Yorkers have been caught making sick animal porn movies with a herd of cows, police claim.
Michael Jones, 35, allegedly did the dirty deed with the bovine beasts in Herkimer County while best pal Reid Fontaine, 31, filmed the entire sordid encounters.
They were busted, however, when the farmer started to wonder why his animals weren't producing as much milk as usual.
The farmer wondered why his cows weren't producing as much milk as they normally did, so he set up cameras, catching Jones and Fontaine in their alleged abuse.
He set up surveillance cameras, and soon discovered the pair were making out with his cows.
The farmer, who has not been identified, called the cops who launched their own investigation.
Jones, of Illion, and Fontaine, of address unknown, were arrested for misdemeanor sexual misconduct..." [Source]
Now I am a huge Libertarian when it comes to personal conduct, but my lord! Cows?!
I blame the Internet and the lack of interpersonal and social contact out here in the world. These poor dudes might just have a hard time trying to relate to other human beings on a sexual level.
This next guy seems to be trying to relate to actual humans, but we actually wish that he wasn't.
"A supervisor at a Minnesota nursing home reportedly branded an 89-year-old rape victim a “flirt” who teased her 30-year-old attacker “mercilessly.”
The supervisor defended the rapist, even after he admitted to sex with the elderly woman and was arrested, according to court papers.
“Did she tell you that this was consensual?” the home’s clinical services director Marilyn Moore reportedly told a nurse examiner who inspected the woman. “Did she tell you that she flirts with this boy mercilessly?”
The shocking allegations were reported by the Star Tribune, citing court documents tied to a lawsuit against the Edgewood Vista facility in Hermantown.
The woman was locked in a psychiatric ward for nearly three days after she reported the attack, according to the documents." [Source]
