    I think Whites are waking up because blacks are so "boastful." Most blacks won't admit that the Caste System exists. Blacks don't give a rip about "fairness."

    Blacks constantly say, "We own basketball. We own boxing. We are the world's greatest athletes."

    After hearing this, some White men start understanding the importance of race and want to see blacks get "owned" in sports. Now, sometimes, there's no chance of that happening when Whites are hardly represented in some sporting leagues.

    But, at least in boxing, there's nothing sweeter than seeing blacks get KOed by dominant White men! I just can't get enough!

    Even the racist Keilyn Ellis from Bleacher Report is saying it's good that the Raiders are done with Russell.

    As I keep saying. It's only a matter of time with 90+% of blacks until they louse up. The only unknown with them is just what it is they'll do to screw themselves up. They have thousands of varied idiotic negative behavioral patterns to pick from in the area of screwing up.

    Just wait for lebron to go into his routine. He'll do it.

    Actually, it is rather amusing to watch.

    Look at the guy on the nyjets with all the kids in all the different locations with all the different women. He's doomed already.

    Forgive me guys, for waiting a few games into last season, to officially start declaring Jafarcus a bust. I was a little slower than you guys in getting the memo lol.

    Looks like one of Jumbo Jadufus's Negro hangers on took the fall, and said the "purple drank" was his not Russell's. There is a photo of Jadufus in court wearing a brown suit, he looked like a giant walking t*rd.

    I'm pretty sure Russell has a legit defense. In my opinion his best bet is to say he had to deal with the pressures of being a black quarterback for too long. The media and DWF's were on his ass all the time. McNabb can help him with this one.

    Here is a good one. Enjoy!

    <h2 ="title">JaMarcus Russell is on the verge of losing his mansion</h2> By Chris Chase</span></span>


    <div ="bd">

    The biggest bust in NFL history could be getting the boot in Oakland again.

    JaMarcus Russell(notes)</span>
    is facing foreclosure on his $2.4 million Bay Area mansion after
    failing to pay the mortgage. According to TMZ (which managed to secure some documents
    about the foreclosure in between all of its Charlie Sheen coverage),
    the former No. 1 pick owes nearly $200,000 in back payments.


    Now,
    I'm not privy to the financial statements of Mr. Russell, but his
    history of decision-making doesn't bode well for his chances of covering
    the debt. (Unless he has some stock in Robitussin that all of a sudden
    skyrockets.) He hasn't been on an NFL roster for eight months, his
    workouts with teams like the Redskins and Dolphins have been
    unsuccessful, and he refuses to play for any football team that isn't in
    the NFL. The only thing that's gone right for him in the past few
    months is that he wasn't indicted on charges of possessing codeine syrup
    without a prescription. (It belonged to someone else, you see.)


    Upon
    getting drafted by the Raiders, Russell signed a contract worth $32
    million guaranteed. If he doesn't pay the $195,512.05 he owes in the
    next three months, he'll lose the house.

    The "Purple Drank" has not helped him. The slow downward spiral has just picked up speed. I anticapate JumbMcdufus becoming involved in some narco ring where he gets caught slurpping on a baby bottle containing the "purple drank".

    I guarantee that Jamawkus is close to 300lbs right now. He's probably "makin it rain" in the strip clubs with whatever little money he has left. For every Ryan Leaf there are 10 JaMawkus Russell's.

    Sources: ‘Life coach' gives up on QB Russell</font>


    <div><div><div rel="dc:creator">
    <div>

    By Jason Cole</span>, Yahoo! Sports</span>
    Russell played just 31 games for the Raiders.
    </div></div></div></div>








    Nearly four years after </span>JaMarcus Russell became the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft, his playing career may
    have completely bottomed out after "life coach"Â John Lucas asked Russell
    to leave Houston recently, two sources close to the quarterback told
    Yahoo! Sports.


    Russell, 25, and Lucas had been working together since September in
    hopes of getting Russell into shape for a return to the NFL. The
    aforementioned sources say Russell, released by the Oakland Raiders last May, initially worked hard, but quickly lost motivation. Recently
    Lucas tired of trying to get Russell, the top pick in 2007, to respond
    to instruction and assistance.




    Lucas did not return several phone messages left for
    him, and agents Eric Metz and Ethan Locke did not want to discuss
    Russell's condition. However, the sources said Russell's lack of effort
    had driven even Lucas, who has made a career of helping athletes and
    others with drug and addiction problems, to the point of frustration.

    <div style="width: 120px; padding-left: 10px; padding-bottom: 0px;">

    John Lucas
    </div>




    In addition to Lucas, TNT analyst and former NBA star Charles Barkley
    tried to motivate Russell, according to one of the sources. Both
    Barkley and Russell are from Alabama, prompting the Hall of Famer to
    take an interest in Russell.


    "The title of your article should be, ‘It's Over,'" the same source
    said. "It's just amazing that you could say that about somebody who is
    25 years old and just got drafted four years ago. But it's been almost a
    year since he got cut and there's no interest. Even before the lockout,
    nobody wanted to get near the kid."Â


    The most telling moment may have come in January when, according to the source, Baltimore Ravens president Ozzie Newsome, also an Alabama native, refused a request to
    meet with Russell. Newsome was in Mobile for the Senior Bowl. Russell
    grew up in Mobile and was there at the time. The hope of the meeting was
    to find a way to motivate Russell by meeting Newsome, one of the top
    executives in the NFL and a Hall of Famer as a player.


    Russell, who lost his starting job in Oakland prior to his release and was arrested in July for possession of a controlled substance, cemented his reputation for poor work habits with two unimpressive showings at workouts with the Washington Redskins and Miami Dolphins
    in November. Russell showed up for the Redskins workout on Nov. 2
    weighing 288 pounds. Two weeks later, Russell showed up for the workout
    with the Dolphins weighing 292 pounds.


    Lucas became increasingly frustrated with Russell starting in December, when Russell's work habits continued to deteriorate.


    After being the top pick, Russell missed all of training camp as a
    rookie in a contract dispute before signing a six-year, $62 million
    contract including $31 million guaranteed money.


    "It's such a waste of talent,"Â the source said. "It's hard to believe
    a guy with that much ability could let it just waste. It's sad. "¦ It's
    like they say, you can't coach desire."Â

    Newton's future. Do people honestly believe that Newton wants to play for the love of the game? and actually put work in? or simply a guy that is looking to get paid.

    It depends on where he's drafted. If Newton goes #1 and gets a
    ridiculous amount of guaranteed money (Russell got 31 million guaranteed and Bradford got even more
    last year) then he will be just like Russell
    but if he's drafted much later like he should be then he might work to
    earn a payday...

    It seems like everyone has Newton going 1st overall to the Panthers and any talks of the Panthers not drafting Newton has the Panthers trading down. At least in the mocks that I have seen. It doesn't look like he will fall out of the top 10 at the rate its going. It would be great to see him go 1st overall to the Panthers, and then have Clausen outperform him, or even Matt Moore, I don't understand why Moore was completely given up on after showing promise, or the fact that Clausen is written off after 1 year.

    Its almost as if teams are pressured into taking Newton with a top pick. The one guy that spoke about Newton's flaws was bashed pretty bad. I wouldn't be surprised if there were cries of racism if he weren't picked in the top. I can already hear the cries of "A Heisman winner who won his team a national championship not going in the top 10...when has that happened?" which is what I have already heard when people suggest late first round.....It happened last year with Tebow who was considered a reach even in the late 1st. Except Tebow had the work ethic and dominated for 3 years (not to mention a pretty good freshman season splitting time as well) with no character concerns.

    Snow, no worries, Carolina will not draft Newton first. If they do, I may leave N. Carolina. If I'm wrong about this remind me later. I think they'll trade down before that happens and put the pressure elsewhere. Honestly, I'm not sure if anyone really wants to draft Newton first, I think everyone wants to pass to the next team (to alieve the pressure)for fear of drafting a bust. I know it's happened before, but the fallout here could be disastrous. I'm not sure Carolina has completely given up on Clausen just yet. Terrible o-line, receivers, and secondary, Carolina is only stable at the RB's and LB's, they need help just about everywhere else.
    Hey, I think there's been more than oneanalyst to expose Scam's flaws. Merril Hoge and couple others, can't remember the rest.

    This doesn't surprise me after Burress and countless other affletes getting a million chances. Analysts debating on whether Russell should get a second chance.

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/09000d5d82059599/article/fat-chance-that-colossal-draft-failure-russell-returns-to-nfl?module=HP_cp2

    "Too young, talented to not get a second chance

    The talent is there. The size is there. One would think that, at this
    level of personal desperation football-wise, the will would be there. He
    plays a position that is always in demand. He would undoubtedly come
    very cheap and could be a developmental asset.

    The purple
    drank, the work habits, weight, and meeting-room behavior ... it's
    deplorable. I get it. But this is a country and league of second
    chances, and he happened to be drafted by an organization in disarray at
    a time that, even for the Raiders, was probably at its nadir.


    Without the weight of expectations and the limelight, and with a "prove
    it" contract rather than a front-loaded one, Russell could be worth the
    risk. He slips up even a little, and he's gone.

    If Russell has
    the desire to play football and be a professional, then I think the
    chance could still come. He had a few workouts during the 2010 season,
    more could be ahead.

    The timing of the lockout has worked
    against him, but eventually it will be resolved. And if Russell can show
    enough in some tryouts to open an eye or two, the NFL might not be
    entirely closed to him, at a bargain-basement price."

    "
    <h4>Every player deserves a second chance</h4> Oh my, I think some team
    will give him a fair shake. Every player deserves a second opportunity.
    And let's face it, just like Russell carries the stigma of laziness and
    bad decision-making, he also carries a huge frame and a big arm. He's
    also played in some very big games (albeit college.) Tom Brady's mentor,
    Tom Martinez, felt the Raiders ruined Russell with a poor supporting
    cast, much less emotional support. Who knows how much of that is true,
    but if a fraction of it is, some club will give him a shot. The guy is
    only 25."

    At least there are more who think he doesn't belong in the league.

    "The NFL generally affords players like Russell, lavished with great
    physical ability, second and even third chances. The reason, to me, that
    this ex-Raider won't get those, like so many others have, is pretty
    simple -- he's a quarterback. And that makes the dynamic completely
    different.


    At this point, there's plenty of reason not to bring
    Russell in as a backup quarterback. Those guys need to be versed in the
    offense, ready in a pinch to play, and self-motivated. Does that sound
    like it's a description of this former first pick? (Only on Opposite
    Day.)"

    Last time I checked, Matt Jones was a wide receiver.
