NFL players seek meeting with Goodell, McNair, Kaepernick
It seems that the players in the NFL take offense to being called prisoners. These overly sensitive, pampered prisoner players have been holding the NFL and their foolishly loyal fans prisoners hostage with their antics ever since Kaperdick decided to disrespect the flag and Nation Anthem by his kneeling act.
If prisoners is the worst thing some of these lads have been called in their life, I will quit posting the Goomba Gazette. Fat chance if that.
Meteorically speaking, Houston Texans owner Bob McNair made a statement that the prisoners were running the prison instead of the other way around. Well?

Can’t help but wonder how many of these PROFESSIONAL characters take a knee when the National Anthem is being played?? I can only guess.
These are the same people many diehard fans are supporting by watching or patronizing football. Makes you proud, doesn’t it??
Anyone with a reputation like they have, should be more concerned about their own behavior. If that was the case, they could help eliminate the possibility of others having to be confronted by the law. No confrontation, no hassles.
In the article that was sent to me, these were the only individuals pictures I received. I am positive that there are many different players of different races just as bad or worse.
The real point of interest is; not that these people broke the law, it is more about the NFL allowing them to play after the fact.
The fact that they were allowed to play in the NFL is a great example of what the multi-billionaires owners think of morality, respect for the law and for the examples set for kids by their piss poor, greedy decision making. It is and always will be about the $oldi.
Wonder why or kids are so %#$&%@ today? Take a good look at their role models. What do they see when they look at these PLAYERS? They see people, who are beating the system, living large, doing whatever suits them and not be held accountable, no consequences, all because they know the fools that run the NFL will turn a blind eye to their illicit activities.
The people that are most responsibly for how many of the kids today are screwed up are; 1st the parents of the kids, 2nd the miserable role models they have and 3rd the people like the NFL owners and judicial system that overlook their behavior because of who they are. Who are they really??? I think we all know the answer to that.
This kind of negligence and preferential treatment is not restricted to the NFL; it is prevalent in all sports and all genre to protect the investment the owner have in THEIR VALUABLE PROPERTY.
In turn; what do these criminal athletes learn by their mistake; only that they can get away with whatever they do as long as they can still CARRY THE BALL.
Give me a %$#@*& break BOYS. Start acting like men instead of disrespectful kids. With track records as some of you have; being called a prisoner should be considered a compliment!! Start getting to the root of the problem. Fix that first. If there is a problem after that, I will take a knee with y’all.
Roger; Listerine is on sale this week at CVS.
Just in case you missed this post; and you shouldn’t have, I did it yesterday.
Meteorically speaking; The systems have been letting the prisoners run their prison. The tail is wagging the dog, instead of the dog wagging the tail
One inch – one foot – one yard – one miles and the ball game is over. The players are way past the 5th miles so far. The permissive, spineless, greedy, un-American owners of the NFL, that put $oldi before the country, the country that allowed them all to become billionaires, have let their players dictate to them for so long, they have lost control. So that cliche is correct, the prisoners are running the prison.
I have been standing on a soap box, screaming my ass off and pulling out the little hair I have left; expounding on the root of the problem; the out of control criminal activities of the black community. No one wants to address that issue; why, because most people are cowards, it is too sensitive and people are hypocrites.
The real root of the problems
1. Data shows that 93 percent of black homicide victims are killed by other blacks.
The left’s rebuttal is that that 84 percent of white homicide victims are killed by other whites, but The Wall Street Journal‘s Jason Riley points out that the white crime rate is “much lower than the black rate.”
2. According to Riley, “Blacks commit violent crimes at 7 to 10 times the rate that whites do.”
Blacks committed 52 percent of homicides between 1980 and 2008, despite composing just 13 percent of the population. Across the same time frame, whites committed 45 percent of homicides while composing 77% of the population, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics.
Here are some more statistics from the FBI:
In 2013, the FBI has black criminals carrying out 38 per cent of murders, compared to 31.1 per cent for whites. The offender’s race was “unknown” in 29.1 per cent of cases.
What about violent crime more generally? FBI arrest rates are one way into this. Over the last three years of data – 2011 to 2013 – 38.5 per cent of people arrested for murder, manslaughter, rape, robbery, and aggravated assault were black.
3. Black crime is even more prevalent in the country’s largest cities and counties.
Heather Mac Donald writes in her book The War on Cops: How the New Attack on Law and Order Makes Everyone Less Safe that in Chicago, IL, blacks committed 76 percent of all homicides, despite composing 35 percent of the city’s population. Blacks also accounted for 78 percent of all juvenile arrests. Whites, who compose 28 percent of the city’s population, committed 4 percent of its homicides and 3.5 percent of its juvenile arrests. Hispanics, who compose 30 percent of the city’s population, committed 19 percent of its homicides and 18 percent of its juvenile arrests. (Another eye-opening fact from Mac Donald’s research is that only 26 percent of murder cases were solved in Chicago.)
Blacks are 10 percent of the population in Los Angeles, CA, but commit 42 percent of its robberies and 34 percent of its felonies. Whites make up 29 percent of the city’s population, and commit 5 percent of its robberies and 13 percent of its felonies.
In New York City, blacks committed “75 percent of all shootings, 70 percent of all robberies, and 66 percent of all violent crime,” despite only composing 23 percent of the population, said Mac Donald in a Hillsdale speech. Additionally, 2009 Bureau of Justice Statistics numbers show that in 2009, “blacks were charged with 62 percent of robberies, 57 percent of murders and 45 percent of assaults in the 75 biggest counties in the country, despite only comprising roughly 15 percent of the population in these counties.”
4. There were almost 6,000 blacks killed by other blacks in 2015.
By contrast, only 258 blacks were killed by police gunfire that year.
5. The percentage of blacks arrested for crimes is consistent with police reports.
This is according to the National Crime Victimization Survey, as well as this 1985 study:
“Even allowing for the existence of discrimination in the criminal justice system, the higher rates of crime among black Americans cannot be denied,” wrote James Q. Wilson and Richard Herrnstein in their classic 1985 study, “Crime and Human Nature.” “Every study of crime using official data shows blacks to be overrepresented among persons arrested, convicted, and imprisoned for street crimes.” This was true decades before the authors put it to paper, and it remains the case decades later.
“The overrepresentation of blacks among arrested persons persists throughout the criminal justice system,” wrote Wilson and Herrnstein. “Though prosecutors and judges may well make discriminatory judgments, such decisions do not account for more than a small fraction of the overrepresentation of blacks in prison.”
This data disproves the notion that racism is what drives higher rates of arrests among the blacks than among whites or broader America.
6. According to Riley, “Black crime rates were lower in the 1940s and 1950s, when black poverty was higher” and “racial discrimination was rampant and legal.”
If it’s not racism and poverty that are blame for the high black crime rate, then what is?
7. According to Mac Donald, “A straight line can be drawn between family breakdown and youth violence.”
As economist Thomas Sowell points out, before the 1960s “most black children were raised in two-parent families.” In 2013, over 72 percent of blacks were born out of wedlock. In Cook County –which Chicago belongs to – 79 percent of blacks were born to single mothers in 2003, while only 15 percent of whites were born to single mothers.
All of these statistics have been substantiated, they are not contrived.
I never claimed to be the sharpest knife n the drawer but I do have a good amount of common-sense and street sense. The old saying is; if you cut off the head of the snake, the rest will die. In this case, the head of the snake in the black community is it’s out-of- control crime and violence. If that can be brought under control, or cut off, the rest of the snake will die. Their problems would be solved. No crime, no interaction with the out of control rouge cops, who should not be on the force to start with.
Camouflaging the root of a problem, shoving under the bed where it can’t be seen or pretending it does not exist by blaming it on something else to avert the attention away, is TOTALLY counter-productive. If a situation, not matter how big or small is not addressed to the core of the condition, it’s true complexities can’t eve be addressed.
MAN up BOYS – with all of the kneeling you been doing, you are only BOYING up. You want to be treated like a man; then act like one. Address the true root of the problem.
CUT OFF THE HEAD OF THE SNAKE
What more can be said?? Only one thing. Anyone that is still supporting the NFL in any way should be ashamed to call themselves American patriots.
As I said a few times. Is the NFL going to save anyone’s ass if this country was ever invaded?? Put your priorities in the the right place.
