This has to be the most obvious end to the whole "every witness magically changes their story the next day, but only to the sports agent" situation.
What f***ing losers. Even as crappy NFL players, you stick around for a few years and build a f***ing nice nest egg. And instead they throw it away for some watches and shit. So dumb.
The Giants moved up to pick the exact wrong corner lmfao
Paying people off and leaving a trail via Instagram DM is some top tier stuff lmfao
That's some Saul Goodman shit.
Only if Saul Goodman was completely brain dead. If you're going to have the temerity to pay off potential witnesses, why as an attorney would you, (A) do it yourself & (B) do it anywhere in public? This guy is clearly the Darwin award head legal counsel.
Then his genius clients & their criminal circle decide to leave a electronic footprint with damning evidence that anyone in law enforcement can easily discover. Law & Order wouldn't even parody this on TV because nobody would find it believable that criminals could be so stupid. Not one but two NFL multi millionaires.
Only in America.
Already planning for a name change in 2120. Pretty smart.
I'm exciting for the influx of guys burning their jerseys cause this is just too much for them.
Everything was fine until this! What am I gonna do with my mini Mount Rushmore of Gus Ferrotte, Trent Green, Jason Campbell and Robert Griffin's one functioning ACL that I have in my backyard?????
The only downside is they are going to overhaul their uniforms, which are top 5 in the NFL and make them all “modern” and hideous.
Personally this is a major win. A lot of my wife's male cousins grew up in DC. SInce I met my wife and our cousin banter started, the Nats and Caps have won titles. As a Mets/Jets/Rangers fan........well you know.
They're all bent out of shape about this and I'm loving every minute of it. Hitting the group text with casual trolling.
The biggest downside, to me, is that the team and Dan Snyder--a truly horrible human being--will profit greatly off the re-branding.
They'll probably sell like $100M worth of shit in six months and then Snyder will show his "generosity" by donating $50K to a Native American advocacy organization.
Cancel the entire franchise for years of purposeful racism.Cant half cancel. Just makes no sense, Right?
You should do us all a favor and cancel your account.
How about the Washington Aliens.
We can put the great Gazoo on the helmet,
its a great color combo. It will be around until some extraterrestrial race comes to be offended.
People have been pushing for Washington to change the name of their team for decades before Tucker Carlson taught you the idiot's definition of the phrases "cancel culture" and "woke."
And make sure to completely change the name.
You cant keep Washington or even Virginia for obvious reasons.
Is the Midatlantics OK, not sure?
Whos tucker carlson? Is he some tv spokesidiot?
People use these phrases and they have zero idea what they actually mean.
Being sensitive to racial issues isn’t being “woke”, it’s being a goddamn decent human being, which we already know most right wingers are utterly incapable of.
It's not binary and there is no objective standard for "sensitivity to racial issues". I know this post got likes from like-minded people but it's an oversimplification of complicated issues.
I’m almost certainly naive, but it just isn’t that complicated in my opinion, at least in this case. The name Redskins is extremely insensitive, and has been continually pointed out as insensitive for decades. I think the worries about “cancel culture” can be valid given the context, but in this context, it isn’t. The Washington name has been an issue since before the “cancel culture” wave became a thing. People are now hauling that phrase at it because it has been planted in their minds by idiots like Tucker Carlson, as 2k2 said. And I think you’ll agree that many of the people who go around complaining about “cancel culture” are people who are generally on the very, very thin line between insensitivity and flat out racism. Now, I can understand the concerns about freedom of speech. We don’t want to be China, obviously. I just feel like a lot of the “free speech” concern around topics like this is just people hiding their true intentions. Much like transphobes who are obsessed with the .6% of people who detransition, and they then use their “concern” as a cover to spread hate. Sure, there are some who are genuine in their concern wrt to free speech, and not every single person who has complained about cancel culture is a right wing bigot. I’m just saying that a lot of the time, they are, at least from my experience. You might feel my view is too binary, but it’s just from experience. It’s all I can really draw from here.
that said, I’d really prefer not to get banned from the football thread, I need to be able to gloat about the Chiefs in here once the season starts.
I was talking about this more broadly, rather than just this issue.
And I don't know if changing the team name falls under cancel culture but I'm 100% against cancel culture. I don't have to agree with the point of view that gets people fired for me to be against the firing. The fact that some people seem to think that being against firing people for controversial opinions means you endorse those opinions shows that some people lack critical thinking skills. The fact that SOME people ARE actually bigots that don't approve of cancel culture doesn't discredit that opinion. It's like saying the Bolsheviks were against income inequality, so I'm going to assume anyone that's against income inequality is a card-carrying communist. It's patently absurd.
