Red states have the fastest growing economies. Ki, have you been to Chicago, Barry The Welfare Pimp 's home state and murder capital of the U.S.? Of course Chicago, like most rusting northeast cities are run by Democrats.
Football is most definitely a manly Republican sport. Ki, did you check Utube for Obama throwing a baseball? What a sissy girly man. I'll bet Clay Bennett throws the baseball the same way!
Ki you are right soccer sucks and so do the Titans. But, no question the SEC rules college football and all the teams with the exception of Mizzo are from Red Republican States. Most liberal Democrat men I have to put up with are watching NPR or "tending their garden" with their Democrat, Hillary voting wife while the NFL is playing. Obama throws a baseball like a girl and I would wager he'd do the same with a football. Lol! P.S. Barry wore his "Mom Jeans" when he tried to throw that baseball. Google it! Embarrassing! Lol! Lol!
Alprova....ok Captain Literal....the acquisition of land was for illustrative purposes only. You said you were a fan of college ball....S.C. Gamecocks acquired more yardage (land) and more point than Vandy yesterday. I should know, as a graduate and major donor to Vanderbilt I was at the game in Nashville yesterday.
And I can't believe PETA and the PC police have not attacked the University of South Carolina Gamecocks for using such an abusive and illegal animal as their mascot. Cock fighting! What? Alprova and Clay should get on that one.
Titans are engaging in combat with the Bengals right now!
Gaus....you obviously did not play football. The battle between the defense and the offense and special teams is a strategic battle in a controlled environment governed by the rule of the game and the refs. One team is trying to impose their WILL on another to achieve victory. The team that acquires enough land (yardage) and scores the most points wins. There is no PC on the football field. Fair play yes, fairness of outcomes, no.
In the book " Football As A War Game" written by Andy Kozar details how legendary U.T. football Coach General R.R. Neyland (Hello....The Vols "Neyland Stadium" named after the General"....) used military tactics to vanquish SEC opponents. Gaus you are just another eyeballed Hillary voting feminized baby killing liberal Democrat. Why don't you go to the soccer match, I've got a football game to watch! :)
If most liberal men had their way there would be no football after all most of them never played. Do you think Barry The Welfare Pimp or Senator John Kerry ever had the balls to play tackle football....NO. Obama aka Steve Erckle and Kerry were too busy smoking weed and reading Marx to bother with football.
No, there has for a long time been a vendetta to kill football at all levels coming from the usual suspects....angry frumpy feminist female Hillary voters ( already have "I'm Ready For Hillary" bumper stickers on their cars) , the granola crowd including wimpy men, PHD's with pony tails and college administrators resentful of what the state is paying college coaches ( Coach Jones at UT makes millions more than Gov. Haslam), and of course a classic liberal category....various..."artists".
But, football at all levels provides an outlet for our young men to take out the aggressions they were born with, high testosterone, competitive desire, etc. Organized tackle football in a controlled environment like the high school, college, or professional football field is the closest thing to military combat the young men will ever experience. Football in its purest form is about the acquisition of land. The offense is trying to advance and TAKE the land and the defense is trying to defend the land. The coaches are the officers and generals ploting, planning, and preparing their troops (team) for victory. Football does way, way, more good for our young men than bad especially in the area of diversity, the ability to deal with victory and defeat, work ethic, taking coaching and instruction and of course teamwork. American football A Beautiful Thing! Go Titans Beat The Bengals!
Ki, in my various business ventures I work with and a number of African American women because they are smart, on time, and have terrific work ethic. This I can't figure out, most of them are church going and speak daily about their relationship with The Lord....have a blessed day, etc....yet they like gangster hip hop. What's up with that? You can't tell me that the hip hop culture does not create and endorse an atmosphere of violence against women.
Ki, your defense of hip hop is comical. I assume that you are female. Here is a hot hip hot lyric probably being played on the Chatt hip hop station right NOW...."I'm gonna knock that pussy out like fight night!" Ki, I'm sure you are soooooo proud of the black hip hop community for such a meaningful tune with such a POSITIVE impact for womankind and society as a whole.......NOT! I can't wait to see the JayZ and Beyoncé special on HBO this weekend! I'll bet Barry, Michelle and the girls are all gonna be watching. As Rick Ross would say.... "Just another day in the life of tha GD boss! Now dats my NIGGA!
The odd thing about all this is that a LOT of the "playas" in the hip hop industry claim to be Christians! Really? Rick Ross and Lil Wayne be goin to hell.....no doubt yo! Bang! bang! Drive by you be dead and you be in hell just like Biggie and Tu Pak! RIP in hell!
Does anyone know what corporate HR policies are regarding domestic violence? Example: So the wife and Joe Six Pack have a few drinks and get into an argument. This and that occurs and ole Joe shoves his wife into the wall whereupon she calls the police. Joe gets cuffed and jailed over night but since it's Friday night Joe is back to work on Monday. Should the police notify the employer and if so can the employer fire the employee or suspend him with unpaid leave? With all this NFL stuff it got me thinking about what legalities and HR issues Commissioner Goodell was having to work through. Since the issue occurred at home what can the employer do if the jerk is not missing work? How do unions handle this?
The big "elephant in the room" regarding the domestic violence issue is the negative and violent impact gangster rap/hip hop music is having on our black males particularly young black male football players that play sports, not just football Mr. Bennett. Remember, L.A. Lakers basketball star Kobe Bryant was arrested a few years back for rape later to be exonerated in court. Turn to the local Chatt hip hop station, FM 94.7 or Sirrius XM Satellite station Hip Hop Nation and you will hear the most vile lyrics depicting women as female dogs, using slang terms for female genitalia, and especially lyrics referring to what they want to do to women.....knock them out, furck them, you get the picture. If you tune to these radio stations make sure there are no small or even teenage children in the car because hip hop is nothing more than "porn for the ears".
I realize this is a freedom of expression/speech issue but you would think that someone in the media other than Fox News and Bill O'Reilly would speak out against this trash and how harmful it can be for a young male athlete to listen to such trash at practice, in the weight room, and on the way to the game. If you hear..."I'm gonna knock dat biatch out" enough you just might act upon it in a moment of anger and hopefully find yourself in jail. Again I ask....Where are our politicians, especially President Obama, a black male that could have such a positive impact on sending the message NOT to this trash yet he and his wife regularly associate with some of the worst hip hop artist offenders, JayZ and Fifty Cent. Finally, where is the mostly liberal media on the issue of violent and inappropriate lyrics in hip hop music? What is your opinion Mr. Bennett? Have YOU ever listened to Hip Hop Music for say 30 minutes? Try it, you will see what I mean.
The big "elephant in the room" that no one, including President Obama or Goodell wants to talk about is the influence gangster rap, aka hip hop music is having on our society and especially our young men. Next time you are in the car turn through your radio stations and find the local Chatt hip hop station of if you have Sirrius XM Satellite Radio tune your dial to Hip Hop Nation. You will hear the most vile, violent, lyrics especially about what they want to do to women....knock them out, the term for female dog is used regularly, as well as slang terms for female genitalia. You get the picture and if you have small or teenage children in the car you should NOT listen to these channels.
I know this is a freedom of expression/speech issue but hip hop is nothing more than "porn for your ears" and athletes, particularly black male high school, college, and professional football players are immersing themselves in the filth of hip hop at practice, in the weight room, and on the bus or jet heading to the game. When you hear " "I'm gonna slap that biatch crazy" enough you just might act upon it in a moment of anger and as it should have been for Ray Rice find yourself in jail.
