    Unless more WRs get hurt, Mike Hass has zero chance to make Seahawks, so this latest signing to bring him back is simply to have another camp body until the first cuts are made.

    For any evidence of the NFL's racist policies against white position players, Mike Hass would make an excellent case study. Looking at his journey with the Seahawaks last year and this year, you can see clear evidence that he's been jerked around in favor of black WRs, some of whom have no business being on the roster.

    Seattle has a very average WR corps. It's mostly the same unit from last year, minus Burleson who left for Detroit. In a fair world, Mike Hass should have easily made the team last year. And this season, the WRs are even weaker. Oft-injured Deion Branch should be cut, Deon Butler should be seeing action on special teams only. Mike Hass should be WR #2 or 3, easily. Even Seattle's coaches and management went on record last year saying they are "perplexed" why Hass hasn't stuck on an NFL roster, and that all he needs is an opportunity.[​IMG]

    At this point in Hass' career, he probably doesn't have much choice, it's either the Seachickens or nothing. I figure that the best we can hope for is that he gets a little game time in the first couple of preseason games and is able to make an impression so that he gets onto the radar of other teams that might need a receiver when the injury bug strikes.

    Surprisingly many scouting reports stated that Hass would be a quality number 2 receiver in the league. That's more favorable than the usual slot role they want the white player to play.

    Mike Hass and Mike Williams are complete and polar opposites.

    Hass was drafted low and given no opportunities"¦Williams was drafted high and given every opportunity.

    Hass is probably just scraping by making practice squad money and league minimums"¦Williams was the 10th overall pick in 2005, and thus, is a multi-millionare.

    Hass is extremely athletic, coordinated, has world class body control and has incredible vertical leaping ability"¦.Williams is a big, fat, uncoordinated, unathletic turd with no vertical leaping ability.

    Hass keeps getting cut"¦Williams keeps getting signed.

    Hass holds the following collegiate receiving records"¦

    -The first receiver in Oregon State and Pac-10 history to have three consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, and is only the 10th player in NCAA history to do so.

    -Holds the Oregon State record and is third in the Pac-10 for receiving yards in a career with 3,924

    -The only player in Oregon State and Pac-10 history with two 225-plus yards receiving games.

    -His 293 receiving yards against Boise State in 2004 is an Oregon State and Pac-10 record for most receiving yards in a single game.

    -His 14 receptions against Arizona State in 2004 is an Oregon State record for most receptions in a game.

    -His 20 receiving touchdowns ties him for the school record for receiving touchdowns in a career.

    -His 90 receptions in the 2005 season is an Oregon State record for most receptions in a single season.

    -His 220 receptions in his college career is an Oregon State record for most receptions in a career

    -His 1,532 receiving yards in the 2005 season is an Oregon State and Pac-10 record for most receiving yards in a single season.

    "¦Williams holds none accept the all-time USC mark for receiving TD's.


    Only in a league (nay, a world) so corrupt and so filled with bigotry could Hass' God-given ability go unnoticed, unrespected, and untapped. Hass is probably the best WR I've ever seen play NCAA football. His body control, in particluar, is indeed superhuman. Perhaps one day, when all the racists finally run out of African scrubs to artificially "replace"Â￾ him"¦he will shine the way he was always meant to.

    Here is an update on Mike Hass' situation with the Seahawks"¦

    To catch on, Hass' route might be CFL

    According to the article, the Seahawks plan on keeping: T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Deion Branch, Mike Williams, Deon Butler, Golden Tate, and Ben Obomanu.

    Deion Branch, Mike Williams, Obamanu, and a Deon Butler (former Penn State smurfette), huh? Yeah, how could Hass possibly hope to compete with these "all-stars?"Â￾

    Here, Hass confirms that his supposed "lack of speed"Â￾ has never been the issue"¦I wonder if he knows the real reason he's gotten so few "opportunities?"Â￾ Or the real reason he was drafted so low? Or the real reason he needed to "walk-on"Â￾ at OSU?

    "I'm fast enough,"Â￾ Hass said. "Every coach who has seen me says I'm fast enough to play in this league. That has really never been an issue. Opportunities have been the issue. Three reps on offense tonight, that's how it's going. It's as simple as that."Â￾

    Even Hass' former coach at OSU, Mike Riley, stated the following falsehood concerning Hass"¦

    "When Mike is in a situation where he is compared daily with players who are bigger or faster, there will always be questions,"Â￾ Riley said. "What he needs is an extended time to play so he can prove himself."Â￾

    Bigger or faster? Please, almost none of the WR's Hass has ever "competed against"Â￾ (it was never actually a competition, but rather, a predetermined, systematic extermination) on the Saints, Bears, and Seahawks were "bigger or faster"Â￾ than Hass.

    Then Riley went on to suggest that Hass should settle for playing football in the CFL, or retire (because he can no longer be a member of an NFL practice squad). Hass did nothing accept make this fool of a head coach look like a genius. New age "gratitude,"Â￾ I suppose.Edited by: Thrashen

    Man I hope he doesn't decide to hang'em up. NFL or no NFL he's a professional caliber football player and should be making money doing that. So go to the CFL Mike what do you have to lose?..nothing.

    If you read the article, the author indicates the Seahawks black wide receiver coach never even bothered to learn how to pronounce Hass' last name. Just pathetic and completely disrespectful to Hass. Also, Coach Riley did not suggest that Hass retire in the article in my opinion. Instead, Riley seemed to be just as perplexed as any other football professional about Hass' situation. He also acknowledged that Hass is an incredible wide receiver, and that the CFL teams are interested in him as they should be. I sure hope he gets a chance to play in the CFL, as I'm way beyond tired of how the black NFL has treated him.

    I wonder if Mike feels like we do? Or if he simply concurs with the reasons he has not played a regular NFL game? I don't know. But One thing I do know, if I was him and did not want to play any longer, I would sound the horn and state the discrimanation against all whites in the Not For whites League. He should do this service to all white players. And maybe the dufus DWFs would stop going to the game. Slim chance.

    In the past guys with similar size and builds like Hass have been all stars in the CFL. I recall a smaller but more compact Darren Flutie being a perennial all star and way back Brian Kelly was one with the Eskimos. Edited by: white is right

    A highly touted but far less accomplished and far lazier receiver than Mike Hass can basically blow off eight years, since he was a sophomore at USC, and still get an opportunity to succeed in the NFL when he's black. From Rotoworld:

    According to coach Pete Carroll, Mike Williams hasn't looked this good since his sophomore year at USC. "He's very hungry," added Matt Hasselbeck, "and he's been awesome." Williams isn't believed to be in the running for a starting role, but his chances of making the team have increased markedly since the beginning of camp.

    This is why the Seahawks will be lucky to win 5 games again this year!

    I think we all agree that the treatment Mike Hass has received from the NFL the past 4 seasons, especially from Seattle the last 2, has been nothing short of disgraceful. However, there's a part of me that thinks Hass has not made the best career moves on his part.

    As soon as he was asked to waste away in a practice squad for the 2nd time, he should have figured out what the deal was with the racist NFL and taken his talents north of the border. He could have built a nice professional resume playing in the CFL, and I think that may have helped him get more of a serious look by some NFL teams. His success in college is now a distant memory and he has virtually no professional experience.

    Even more shameful, despite knowing they will not keep him, the Seahawks aren't even throwing a bone his way. Let the man play for a quarter or 2, throw him some balls, and at least let him showcase his skills for other potential suitors. I really hope Seattle stinks this year, and I think they will. They appear to be a 4-5 win team at best.

    It may not be too late for Hass. He should forget about the NFL for the next 2 years, go play some CFL/Arena league football, keep in shape and then come back again by the time he's 29, still in his prime, and give it one more try. It's far better than being jerked around in some training camp, and it's also far too early for him to give up football all together. I know he sounds resigned and frustrated in that article, but it's not over yet.

    I highly doubt Hass will ever get a smidgen of a chance to play in the NFL. He's a white Freddy B. winner which is really, really bad news for him, because the white guy isn't suppose to win that award. The elite collectivists in charge and the black foot soldiers that serve them (unwittingly) will not allow him to get a foot in the door because he won that award. Just as sure as the grass is green and the sky is blue, Hass will not be allowed to play. It happened this way at Chicago with the black SOB in charge there. Hass then went to Seattle and had to win a position under a black WR coach. The black SOB said Hass didn't have the "upside" of a Jordan Kent. What a crock of sh*t! That wasn't going to happen, no way. Then the stupid Seachicken coach gets canned and a new idiot gets the job. So, now Hass has to impress another black WR coach who doesn't even bother to learn how to pronounce his name. Hass is an afterthought in the black NFL, and it appears Pete Carroll could also give a rat's behind about Hass' skills. I guess he forgot about how Hass dismantled the SC DB's when he coached at SC. Instead, Carroll ignores Hass and gives oodles of manlove to thug busts like the Williams twidiots--pathetic! Hass is from here in Portland, and the moron DWF's I talk to here locally--OU and OSU fans alike--barely remember him. They also parrot the standard line that he's too small and slow for the NFL without even realizing he's much bigger, quicker and perhaps even faster than many black receivers. Hass is swimming against the tide as a white guy in a very black league, and I believe he knows it, especially by now. It's my understanding he earned an engineering degree at OSU, not some basketweaving degree like Hooshiemangata(sp?) "earned." Hass said there was no guarantee of making in the NFL, even after his huge, productive career at OSU. At this point, I hope he goes to the CFL. The NFL doesn't deserve a great guy like Hass. Personally, I hope I'm wrong about all this and Hass magically gets a break at the 11th hour. I'm not holding my breath, and I think the same thing is going to happen to Toby G. if he does not completely blow away the league from the start. Remember, he won a major award for being the best RB in college football--big no, no for a white guy. The NFL will end up just the NBA.

    Supposedly Reggie Bush asked the Saints management to to draft Hass. I guess that did nothing for him.

    Reggie probably appreciated how Hass dismantled his team, USC, like Hass did to all the Pac-10 teams, including my team, ASU. Looking back, Hass probably had his best chance at New Orleans, but it appears to me that Hass did not want to be placed on the practice squad so quickly without being given a decent chance to make the Saints' Sunday roster.

    Good observation. It's all very mysterious to me - the way things played out in New Orleans. Hass was quite the talk in the beginning of training camp after being drafted. The media regularly talked about his outstanding practices. He looked good in the first pre-season game after getting in the game early. He had three receptions including a "how did he hang on to that ball"Â￾ type catch. Then it was as if he entered the witness protection program. All media about Hass stopped flowing. I don't think he played in the second pre-season game. Mike Hass was an afterthought from then on. I'll always wonder if the Saints tried to be too coy and hide Hass so that he could pass to the practice squad with no problems.

    That's why I'll never respect Sean Payton, in spite of his "snow patrol" linebackers. He had Hass, Chase Lyman, Chris Horn, and I believe Aaron Hosack in his first camp as head coach. Hass, Lyman and Hosack were all major talents, but all three were purged. Horn had the least talent of the four but somehow lasted the longest. The vast majority of NFL organizations don't know how to handle very talented White players at many positions. If they're not a QB, O-lineman or a tight end,they almost always get put through a prolonged racial apprenticeship or never get a meaningful opportunity at all.

    Thanks for all the insight guys, Colonel, Don, TT, Wee, ToughJ, WA33, and the others on the CF Forum. If it wasn't for this forum--you guys--and the ill treatment of Hass by the NFL, my eyes may have never open to the blatant caste system. And you are right, Truthteller, that Hass had a friend in Jerry Angelo at Chicago. Isn't it a shame that a guy like Hatie Smith can blunt the wishes of his GM?

    Here we go again.

    Seahawks waived WR Mike Hass.

    Im pretty sure Mike's small window for a shot in the NFL has closed. I hope he does go north where he will set the league on fire. He was the player that put me over the top in terms of caste treatment, since than my only interest in the NFL is seeing how white players perform and I have become alot more outspoken with friends/associates about the treatment of white athletes and the very obvious shortcomings of affletes. I can list 5 teams off the top of my head that can use him but won't give him a shot: 1. Redskins 2. Panthers 3. Bears 4. Bills 5. Browns...these are all teams that have glaring needs at WR.

    I hope he does get signed and plays well somewhere in the NFL but if not and he wants to keep playing the CFL would embrace a player of his caliber without a doubt.

    Yeah, if he isn't allowed to play in the NFL, I'd love to see him in the CFL, but just not for Saskatchewan as they already have a boatload of white receivers and he'd probably just replace one.

    If he does go to the CFL he will be an unrestricted free agent. Only Canadians are drafted. In some ways you can build a team quickly because of this rule. Also in the past suitcases off the books have helped land star players as the league has a salary cap.Edited by: white is right
