    What can we do about this. We have created alternatives to YouTube and Twitter. Other social media alternatives. But ESPN is the only one in sports. We need alternatives. I don't see the culture changing at ESPN any time soon. So we need to push alternatives or just stop watching ESPN all together. Let them crash in their own demise with this PC crap. Go Saints. Glad Anzalone is having a good game. McCaffrey MVP! Let's make it happen.

    You are correct. I am guilty of going there to primary look at Dan Rafael's writing on boxing. He has shown himself to be fair to White fighters. Also, when there, I peruse the stories on White players in the MLB, NFL and NBA.

    So funny these NFL coaches continue playing prevent defense in these situations especially against hall of fame QBs.

    Saints pull it out! Ultra dark Houston loses.

    I believe the Texans are the only NFL team this year with White players in single digits on their roster. Even the Seahawks have 11.

    Such a shame JJ Watt has to be on that team.

    An A. blatant example of dummy straight White men supporting the Texans. I do not want to hear the trope "the best plays." If those idiot White men or emasculate men would do the rudimentary research they would see how the books are cooked against White men.

    Is big #97 Josh Mauro a starter or not? A physical specimen at 6'-6" 290 on the D-Line just pulled a WWE on the Tackle for loss!

    LB Josey Jewell & rookie TE Foster Moreau a nice match up!

    Even dwf's acknowledge Trey Hendrickson (2 sacks in 2nd half) is better than Davenport who they are already saying "Bust"

    Christian McCaffrey had the BEST "L Drills" Times at NFL Combine since Marshall Faulk!

    Glad to see Trey Quinn score a TD.

    There are good journalists out there I'm sure. But bit many these days.

    The only way to win is not to play the game. With ESPN that is. Stop watching it. Stop going to the site. Stop giving it clicks and ad revenue. Go somewhere else. Anywhere. Albeit one of ours. Maybe someone out there hiding in plain sight who knows. Just can't talk openly about it.

    Yeah I want to see more stories on all white players from all sports. I would really like to see hockey marketed better. It's such an awesome sport. And the most homogeneous. Rugby can be fun too but I think hockey is better.

    God bless

    Brees is magic. Go Saints.

    Very happy the Patriots won big 33-3. That's a good sign if you know what I mean.

    Then Brees with the Bible thing. He wins. God is in our corner.

    Christian McCaffrey will win MVP I predict.

    Raiduhs looking professional, up 14 points over DEN. The stadium of DWFs chanting "f**K AB, f**K AB." Maybe there is hope. LOL:para:AB. LOL

    Gotta admit, C-Mac, a smooth, fast and decisive runner with ball catching skills. He could be a contender.

    For him to win the MVP they will need to start winning, middling to barely in the playoffs won't do it. He will have to come close to the total yards record or break it too, also Newton can't cancel out votes to him. Also if Newton is going lay an egg on the season the Panthers won't be an elite team, he will commit too many errors for them to overcome.

    PS the Raiduhs look decent without Mr. Big Chest as of halftime in their first game. still 15 and half games to come unglued though......

    The Raiduhs are giving Josh Mauro a fair shot so far. Arizona didn't treat him well.

    Carr looks great - the media has done their best to write him off. For all the drama surrounding the Raiders they do look good so far. I think I saw both Mauro and Crosby out there for a few plays. It's also nice to see Renfrow out there.

    Josey Jewell with 13 tackles, 7 of them solo. Adam Gotsis and Derek Wolfe both played well on the line.

    And Josh Mauro and rookie Maxx Crosby both made their presence felt on the Raiders' D. A sprinkling of Whites on the Oakland offense as well, a refreshing contrast from the Del Rio dark ages and even Gruden's first season with them last year.

    Ok Josh Jacobs for all intents and purposes, was a scrub RB at Alabama with 640 rushing yardage in 2018. His YPC was 5.5. Yet he is installed as the Raider feature back. A White player with the same stats at an ACC school would never get the opportunity that Josh got tonight. Can we say black privilege and dat high upside? BTW he did have a great game tonight for the Raiduhs.

    Maybe the Mr. Big Chest show was a minstrel show that united the Raiduhs during the drudgery of training camp, maybe Cucky found a new way to unite a team as the Raiders looked functional. The last time I saw a minstrel clown try to pull anything on the big screen things didn't go so well for him.......

    Running into another problem which curbs my postings.

    Anyway a word about the Saints game and some observations.

    First if I was to assemble a team that started 5 black OL, a black TE and a black DT and one other black defender with the rest of the starters being white, that set up would not go over well at all with William Rhoden and his ilk. Not all black football players are graded the same. OL are often a bit overweight and un gangly looking whereas black DBs are built like steroid supermen. I have the least amount of animus towards black OL because they aren't treated with the same kind of kid gloves from the media that is reserved for black skill players, black QBs and of course black DBs. If an OL of any race allows a sack they are usually cited as messing up and the media the next day will generally follow suit. But what strikes me is the crickets game that goes on with black DBs. Maybe black OL are given more slack than white OL but it isn't egregious like the way they treat white and black DBs.

    A perfect example last night. Both the Saints and Texans DBs couldn't do their jobs at crunch time last night. The QBs were hailed as the heroes but missing from the narrative was the continued horrible display put on by black DBs. And it isn't just black DBs. Often hyped all black defenses like the Jags are cited as the cream of the crop. So how did they allow a sub talented QB in Lamar Jackson to burn them? How did the "best defense" in the NFL the Bears melt down against the Eagles during the game winning drive in the playoffs last season. They blamed the loss on a white kicker whose kick was actually blocked. Pass the buck, divert attention and continue with the running narrative of the great black defense theme.

    The only time the media and beat reporters call out DBs is if a white DB makes an error. The black DBs, the epitome of black supremacy and one of the key reasons guys like William Rhoden and other black supremacists wake up with a woody every morning, are the most media protected group of athletes in all of sports. They generally suck but we are told they are the greatest athletes the world has to offer. Usually the media blames the front seven for defensive break downs. The old lack of pass rush. But DBs should be expected to hold up on certain plays where there isn't a strong pass rush and guess what? They can't. And the black safeties are usually out of position because they can't fundamentally read and diagnose the plays properly. We are witnessing an era that features the worst defensive back play probably in the history of college football and the NFL and it coincides with the disappearance of the white DB.

    And one other thing bothers me about this whole black DB fiasco. They seem to be marching lock step like brothers in arms with their black wide receiver opponents as these WRs pile up huge stats and become focal point skill players the media obsesses about 24/7 see Beckham/AB etc.. People will ask why would a black DB not be ashamed about letting their black brothers burn them? Well for starters they never pay a price. They come out the next week still hailed as athletic wonders without a worry in the world. In other words they aren't punished ( like a white DB would) for giving up chunks of yards and TDs to their black "opponents."

    One other thing that miffs me and to Booger's credit last night he highlighted the error. By the way the Tessitore and Booger team at least aren't caste crazy which carries on the MNF tradition set by Gruden and his mates. So the Saints have a 5'6 KR/PR from the tiniest school (Assumption--where the hell is that?) that everyone was raving about. So Deonte Harris makes two errors that could have cost the Saints the game late during crunch time. As Booger explains you don't field punts inside the 5 yard line. You plant your feet at the ten and if it is over your head you let it go. Harris backs up and catches the ball at the 5 pinning the Saints deep in their own territory. What does this genius do on the next punt? He calls for a fair catch and runs after fielding it which is a penalty.

    And teams wonder why they don't win. They too often rely on black flash return players who often make poor decisions which over time hinders a team's ability to win games. Of course with white return men one mistake and they are banished to the petrified forest never to be heard from again.

    And no more than a few minutes after you post this, the Houston Texans cut a CB who was burned in the Saints game! https://www.yahoo.com/sports/report...-up-critical-catch-to-ted-ginn-022154247.html

    Redskins: LB Cole Holcomb shined bright despite defensive collapse in 32-27 loss to Eagles

    Redskins rookie linebacker Cole Holcomb proved to be one of the few bright spots for an otherwise beleaguered defense in Sunday’s crushing loss to the Eagles.
    The Washington Redskins failed miserably in their first test of the regular season by suffering a soul-crushing 32-27 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday.

    With the Redskins entering halftime holding a surprising 20-7 lead, they had a prime opportunity to steal a win from the favored Eagles. Unfortunately, both the offense and defense proved to be ineffective and unreliable down the stretch. The Redskins went on to be outscored 25-7 to close out the game.

    While the final result was obviously not ideal for players and fans alike, one particular player on the Redskins defense stood out above the rest in terms of making a positive impact.

    Rookie inside linebacker Cole Holcomb proved that he may be a legit member of a defense that will look to rebound after Sunday’s unimpressive performance. Able to use his speed and aggression to his advantage, he finished the game tied with a team-high 9 combined tackles, including 2.0 tackles for loss. Only cornerback Quinton Dunbar was able to match Holcomb’s production in total tackles.

    During the first half in particular, it became evident as to why the Redskins front office decided to move on from former inside linebacker Mason Foster at the start of training camp. Holcomb, along with Jon Bostic, seemed to excel in play recognition and diagnosis. This was key in holding down a potent Eagles offense early in the contest.

    However, the second half proved to be another story. While Holcomb continued to display an ability to make plays from start to finish, the defense as a unit appeared to wear down as the game went on.

    I've noticed a few more white players getting return jobs recently. Even Tomlin had Switzer on SNF. The Patriots have had Edelman for years returning punts because he does his job properly. Other coaches should follow suit.

    Everyone was raving about Watson's performance but what about the stupid throw into triple coverage that gave NO the ball to get their first go ahead score of the game? Didn't Watson also throw another pick that was called back for defensive offside or was that Brees? I think it was Watson

    It is an underrated thing. having a return man who does the right thing. It doesn't make headlines but fielding tough balls, knowing when and when not to field kicks and minimizing turnovers are all important ingredients needed for a solid return man. Not too mention heading up field instead of running around backwards like so many black returners do when attempting to make a big flash play. Sadly too many teams rely on return men who lack these essential fundamentals. One or two "big" returns can't make up for a return man who constantly screws up.

    The case of 5'6" Deonte Harris out of Assumption College is instructive. The school is about the size of my high school, hidden away in the northeast. He was an UDFA and was handed the Saints return duties with a lot of hype. All he demonstrated to me Monday night was a player who didn't understand what he was doing.

    Meanwhile a much bigger player from a big school ( Boston College) Michael Walker rots on somebodies practice squad. Walker was the elite return man in the draft proving himself against the best competition including national champions Clemson where he returned a punt for a TD in a dazzling display.

    So black CB Colvin landed in the Chris Conte graveyard where the white DBs are buried? Not so fast.

    CB Aaron Colvin has been scooped up and signed by the Washington Redskins.

    Meanwhile back at the ranch white DBs rarely get a first chance so it is pretty much nearly impossible that a white DB ever gets a second chance.
