Whilst I theoretically should be ecstatic over My Titans new GM John Robinson pullin' a John "Not Bo Duke" Schneider of Seattle Seahawks notorious Wheeler-Dealer General Manager in the just concluded draft. Where Robinson amassed ten picks which hopefully will not only improve Tennessee but also shore up protection for Franchise QB Marcus Mariota.
But as I've scribbled here before, right now I'm really not very impressed at all with Pro Football, which just seems like one Huge Cesspool 'O Corporate greed!
Certainly everybody enamoured with Thy National Football League knows the bizarre Outings of Ole Miss Linebacker Laremy Tunsil by now, when reportedly Hackers first posted a picture of him in a gas mask allegedly smoking some foreign substance from a Bong. Then next posting on his INstagram account two pictures of Tunsil asking for cash from an Assistant Coach at Ole Miss, for which Tunsil has not denied either occurrence...
Yet I'm still brooding over 'Ol Squeaky Clean Peyton Manning's High jinx, for which conveniently he's still maintaining an ultra low profile after allegation of his Sexual Harassment of a female trainer while starring at the University of Tennessee seem pretty conclusive.
Now I'm in a bit of a pickle here, since I'm aware of Peyton's "Good Side" when it comes to charitable causes, but I cannot shake the feeling that unfortunately he's another Lance Armstrong! Since even if we all make mistakes during our youth, Manning's steadfast denial seems to ring hollow, especially when the would-be recipient of said prank encourages Peyton to "Do the Right Thing!"
As the ironic part, or is it? Is that Peyton's college prankster behavior is being called out during an ongoing Sexual Assault lawsuit involving Manning's Alma Matter, the University of Tennessee! For which I first became aware of when trolling' Thy Tennessean's Sports section to find out what's new with My Titans.
As the whole sordid affair is quite disturbing, for which how can anybody rightly proclaim someone being a traitor for going to the aid of a woman who's just been raped!
For which two further women have come forward and joined the Sexual Assault lawsuit, which seems to point out a culture of looking the other way in regards to the extracurricular activities of its athletes...
So how does the NFL factor into this you say? Well for Mwah, it seems pretty Hypocritical when they're boasting of their zero tolerance policy regarding Domestic Violence regarding the litany of sexual assaults by NFL players and then turning a blind eye towards this stance when inviting Kurt Maggitt to attend their Combine tryouts. Since allegedly Maggitt was the player who punched the ex-Vols' player coming to the aid of a woman in the lawsuit! Who's since been signed as an undrafted Free Agent by the Indianapolis Colts.
And I'd say the verdict's still out upon Seattle Seahawks 2015 selection Frank Clark who was arrested upon Domestic Violence issues, although he seems to have kept his hands to himself so far.
Meanwhile, as another accusation towards the late Joe Paterno makes headline news and two college football programs definitely seem to be at the very least underneath a cloud of suspicion, with Ole Miss football coach Hugh Freeze claiming He Knows Nothing! Leaving me to ponder if part of their largish monetary contracts as Head Coaches is simply to provide a buffer or act as a shield towards said institution.
As although it's nice to hear the legendous' Sergeant Schulz trademark being rolled out! Roll Out the Barrels... Uhm, it's strange how it's Ok for one of the leagues marquee players to have allegedly used banned Growth Hormones to speed recovery of his broken neck, but Oh My Freakin' Ganja! Marijuana's BAD!
Seriously? Like it's a four game suspension for using Marijuana but the Super Bowl winning QB's comments 'bout drinking a whole SHITLOAD 'O Budweiser's on national television's a rousing endorsement; Oh Never Mind!
And although I scarcely follow college athletics, I do realize how lucrative it's become for these bastions of higher education to have winning Bowl eligible programs, specifically in the amount of millions it showers upon them. Yet ultimately, college football is simply the last rung on the ladder to Pro Football and sadly, most likely where players learn what they can and cannot get away with.
Thus, although it will obviously be a blight upon both school's records, i.e.; Ole Miss and Tennessee if said allegations are true For Mwah, I find the University of Tennessee's much more disturbing and truly hope their found guilty, since they seem to have a long track record of living in the past regarding women's rights! As I haven't even touched upon law enforcement providing "Courtesy Calls" to UT's Head Coach Butch Jones regarding said sexual assault complaints...
