Nobody and I mean NOBODY makes Roger Goodell look like a fool. (Except Roger Goodell of course)

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on October 15, 2008

Pacman in trouble? Stevie Wonder could have seen this coming but you couldn’t could you Roger? I know, I know but Jerry Jones told us (and you) that he didn’t do anything wrong, it was Donkey Kong…

Roger, Roger Roger…I can’t believe you actually fell for it, you actually believed the player formally known as Pacman Jones turned a corner in his life. You know you believed it Roger, don’t deny it. On October the 8th you were quoted as saying:

“Adam knows how much emphasis I put on making sure that he makes good choices going forward, that he avoids situations where he can reflect poorly on himself, the Cowboys or the NFL. So far he seems to have been able to do that very effectively.

“I am supportive of him and am hopeful that he will be able to do that for the rest of his life. I am hoping he will not only be a great NFL player but he will continue to do the right things so he can lead a productive life off the field as well.”

Now here it is a week later after you spoke those words and you have suspended Pacman Adam Jones for at least four games. Do you feel foolish Roger? Do you? Perhaps you should.

In your letter to Pacman Adam Jones that informed him of his latest and greatest suspension, you wrote that Jones’ “disturbing pattern of behavior was clearly inconsistent with the conditions I set for your continued participation in the NFL.”

When you reinstated Pacman Adam Jones from suspension before the regular season began, one of the your conditions for Jones to remain an active player was that he remain in compliance with all aspects of his three-year probation from when he pleaded no contest last February to a felony in Fayette County, Ga.

Now we know that you’re expecting to weigh whether Pacman Adam Jones was in potential violation of his probation, in which he was prohibited from alcohol-related incidents.

Are you feeling a tad bit stupid yet Roger?

You’re now reduced to saying that your decision on whether Pacman Adam Jones can return to play will be based on his strict compliance with the NFL and the Cowboys in relation to treatment plans and evaluations by clinical “experts.”

The Cowboys owner Jerry “Soulless” Jones said he does not regret making the trade that brought Adam Jones to Dallas.

“I don’t regret having been a part of helping him do better. I am sorry that we’ve had the negative publicity and that is the price that we pay for the team as well as the NFL.”

However I bet the Titians do regret making the trade, because according to the terms of the trade that sent Pacman Adam Jones to Dallas, they would have to give the Cowboys a fifth-round draft pick if Jones is suspended again by the NFL.

See folks Pacman can screw a team that he isn’t even playing for.

Of course I have to ask the following question:

Is it too late to get Pacman Adam Jones on one of those Guinness commercials? Punching out your own bodyguard while on probation? BRILLIANT!

Seriously this does offer hope that the Ron Mexico Revolution still can live on!

Roger…one more behavior issue with Pacman Adam Jones and he should be expelled from the NFL…wait didn’t you already say that once before?

Also Roger you’re setting a bad example. This seems more like a grudge than anything else. Larry Johnson has been charged with assault numerous times but has never been subject to your czar-like discipline. I really don’t care one way or another about the Cowboys, but I can’t help but look at the track record and see hypocrisy all over the place.

Pacman Adam Jones hasn’t learned that playing in the NFL is a special privilege, not a right. He knew he had no leeway, and even something that brought the cops out, regardless of charges being filed, would not sit well with the bosses.

However I imagine he’ll serve the 4 game suspension and be back, though, assuming there’s no “rain” of any kind in his or your forecast.

Vicious hit of the week & I mean vicious

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on September 30, 2008

Vicious:

  • (a.) Bitter; spiteful; malignant.
  • (a.) Characterized by vice or defects; defective; faulty; imperfect.
  • (a.) Not well tamed or broken; given to bad tricks; unruly; refractory; as, a vicious horse.
  • (a.) Addicted to vice; corrupt in principles or conduct; depraved; wicked; as, vicious children; vicious examples; vicious conduct.

Eric Smith seemly demolished Anquan Boldin in Sunday’s Cardinals/Jets game to the point that Boldin had to be taken off the field on a stretcher. It was clearly a cheap & vicious helmet to helmet hit, watch the video below and you will see the hit if you wait for the replay to slow down.

The NFL has now taken swift, and somewhat appropriate, action against Smith, by suspending him for one game and fining him $50,000.

Specifically, on a pass play on Sunday, Smith engaged in helmet-to-helmet contact with Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin, who was in a defenseless position at the time contact was made.

The suspension will sideline Smith for the Jets’ game against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday, Oct. 12 following the Jets bye on Oct. 5. The $50,000 fine includes the game check Smith will forfeit for the week of his suspension.

While at the least it’s a punishment but is it enough? I wouldn’t mind seeing Roger “The Sheriff” Goodell suspend the violators of the helmet to helmet rule, for the length of the injury sustained by the victim and then a minimum of 3 games beyond that. Quite frankly I also wouldn’t mind see the fines raise to a minimum of $200,000 either. Let’s face it for some players a $50,000 fine simply means they will have to shorten a vacation by two days during the off season. These are just my opinions if you have any others please voice them.

Vince Young wants to try his sausage…seriously he does!

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on September 9, 2008

Before Vince Young decided to quit on the Titians in last Sundays game, he went into the sausage business.

I think it’s a smart business move on his part. After all when throw 9 touchdowns and 18 interceptions like he did last year, one better have some other money making options.

Of course I question why someone who signed a $50 million contract would feel the need of sell sausages. Quick someone get me Jimmy Dean’s profits from last year. And is this better than Carson Palmer’s hotdog?

So to recap, Vince Young spent the off-season partying with a bunch of sweaty, shirtless guys and hammering out the kinks in his sausage business plan.

I guess Brady Quinn is the one who wrote up his workout plan.

Then again what do you expect from a guy who made a paper airplane out of his Wonderlic test?

No Shirt, No shoes, Sausage!

Back to my allegation about Vince quitting last Sunday, I’ll let The Tennessean take it from here.

He pushed away defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth, who was trying to console him, and took a seat on the bench. When it was time for the Titans to take the field following a three-and-out by the Jaguars, Young appeared as if he didn’t want to go back in.

Collins began taking snaps before Fisher came over and appeared to gesture for Young to take the field. The coach later said a tight hamstring – not a reluctant quarterback – was the issue. Asked about it five times during his postgame news conference, Fisher never changed his story.

I was watching this game and when old man Kerry Collins was warming up and the crowd was cheering because they thought Young had been yanked from the game.

Young threw two horrible looking interceptions where one was returned for a TD. OF course Young being the leader that he is, has been blaming other members of the team rather than himself.

This is the latest of a string of troublesome incidents that involve Young. Since his rookie season he has shown 0% mental toughness that is required to be a NFL QB. Other players in the league respond well to constructive criticism but not Young. You have to constantly pat his back so he can at least try harder. Then there are rumors about him having Norm Chow fired and that strangle comment about thinking about retirement after his first season that should draw some concern among Titian fans. Maybe the Titans would be better off with Kerry Collins after all. I mean he is the reason they won yesterday.

Daunte Culpepper picked a terrible time to retire from the NFL.

Vince if you’re reading this and I know you are, finish up your sausage patty and read this e-mail that Ghetto Philosopher was written you.

Dear Vince,

Thank you for getting Norm Chow fired.

Sincerely,

Ghetto Philosopher & the rest of the UCLA Fan base.

Tiki Barber dropping the C-Bomb on NBC

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on August 22, 2008

Tiki Barber is perhaps the world’s most bitter former NFL running back. Imagine retiring early and then criticizing Tom Coughlin in an interview with Newsday by saying:

“Tom is the way he is; he’s not going to change, and that’s fine,” Barber said. “Just as it’s his prerogative to coach that way and treat people the way he does, it’s my prerogative to do something else and give you a reason why.”

“If I was lying, if I said, ‘Tom was a great guy,’ that he said, ‘Tiki, I know you’re hurt, take a day off,’ or if we screwed up he didn’t yell at me and said, ‘OK, Tiki,’ with positive reinforcement, then I’d be lying and I’d be wrong,” Barber added.

And course slamming the Coughlin, the Giants owners and even the fans in his book Tiki: My Life in the Game and Beyond.

“[Coughlin] robbed me of what had been one of the most important things I had in my life, which was the joy I felt playing football,” Barber wrote. “I had lost that. He had taken it away.”

“The fans normally only see me suited up on Sunday,” Barber wrote. “They never witness the agony of Monday morning, or all the muscle-straining workouts, the practices, the blood, the sweat, and tears it takes to walk out onto the field.”

Of course Tiki takes some credit for the Giants super bowl win even though by that time he was just another former jock announcer.

“I feel great joy for them because I know in a lot of ways I helped a lot of guys on that team,” Barber said. “I know Brandon [Jacobs] was someone who benefited from me being there; even criticizing someone is a way of getting them to think about themselves.”

Of course Tiki couldn’t stop while he was ahead. On January 3rd this year before the Giants were crowned champions again, Tiki elected to slam Eli Manning.

“Eli’s got a strong arm. I know he’s been really maligned this year. You watch him on film, it seems like he’s going through a process the right way, making the right decisions. Sometimes he just throws some bad balls,” Ronde said yesterday in a phone conversation with The Post. “I don’t know the reasons for that. He can be had, we know that.”

He can be had?

“Just look at his percentage,” Barber said. “At the end of the day, your numbers don’t lie, and at the end of the day, you are what you put on film. Obviously, this team’s got a whole bunch of talent, and Eli’s got a whole bunch of talent behind him. He just doesn’t show it all the time.”

This brings us to today. I know that you know that Tiki knows he is rather bitter and embarrassed.

In the video below you’ll notice that Barber is talking to Jenna Wolfe and Brian Williams. Wolfe made a comment about Barber not having a Super Bowl ring, and shortly thereafter Williams made a comment about the Olympic “medal count.” At the 28 second mark on the video listen closely because it sounds like Barber said what sounded to be the dreaded C-word. I’m sure it was a Freudian slip directed to Wolfe after he felt that she had insulted him or he is still feeling like a jackass.

I believe Ken Lucas is looking for another ass whipping

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on August 15, 2008

Lucas after Smith schooled him

Lucas after Smith schooled him

Many of you may remember that on August 1st, Carolina Panthers wide receiver Steve “Hands of Stone” Smith punched beat the hell out of cornerback Ken Lucas.

Apparently Lucas didn’t learn his lesson. Even though Lucas punked by someone who at least 18 inches shorter than him, he is now talking trash about Smith in the press. In an interview for the Charlotte Observer he states:

“I’m not going to lie to you and tell you it was easy,” says Lucas. “I never thought I could.”

He adds: “I could have hurt him in a serious way.”

However in fairness to Lucas he also might have realized his error during the interview or he remembers the pain that Smith put him though because he then states:

“It could have ended a lot of different ways,” says Lucas. “I could have lost my eyesight, I could have lost consciousness, I could have lost my life.”

Well I’m glad Smith didn’t kill you. Can we say drama queen everyone?

Smith has been suspended for two games but that’s really just to train for a fight with the world’s toughest man Chuck Norris. Smith refuses to comment on Lucas’s cowardly statements to the press. After all Smith will let his actions do the talking.

This weeks mandatory Brett Fa*** post: Is the Fa*** circus coming to a close?

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on August 6, 2008

This whole soap opera started with an itch Fa*** had that tough acting Tinactin couldn’t cure. Things went from Fa*** wanting to be released, to Fa*** wants to stay with the pack (as early as last Sunday) to Fa*** now where Fa*** will likely be traded.

Here’s a detailed timeline to help you figure it out:

  • Jan. 20: Packers lose NFC Championship Game to the Giants in OT
  • March 6: Fa*** conducts retirement news conference and cries again
  • April 3: Denies rumors of a comeback
  • April 4: Agent reportedly contacts teams to gauge trade interest
  • April 9: Says he might consider comeback if opportunity was presented
  • June 20: Fa*** tells Coach Mike McCarthy he may want to play
  • July 2: Fa*** says reports of return were “all rumor” in other words he lied
  • July 6: Sends text message to Packers GM Ted Thompson
  • July 8: Fa*** asks for release with understanding he won’t be starter
  • July 11: Packers receive letter from Fa*** formally requesting release
  • July 16: Packers file tampering charges with NFL against Vikings
  • July 19: Returns to Lambeau Field to attend Packers Hall of Fame ceremony
  • July 25: Fa*** tells Packers he plans to report to training camp
  • July 29: Faxes reinstatement request to NFL
  • July 30: Meets with Packers president Mark Murphy in Mississippi
  • July 31: Fa*** offered millions to not report to camp
  • Aug. 3: NFL commissioner Roger Goodell reinstates Fa***
  • Aug. 4: Fa*** reports to training camp and is added to active roster after passing physical
  • Aug. 5: Left practice facility in the afternoon … did not practice with the team … met with Packers officials to discuss trade options … say “the best thing for this team is for us to part ways” … considers talking to the Buccaneers about a possible trade.

Fa*** has basically shown the world that one person can be bigger than the franchise. Even with the chance to win his starting job back, McCarthy claims Fa*** couldn’t seem to get past emotional wounds that were opened as tensions mounted in recent weeks.

This may sound cruel but IMHO Fa*** did it to himself.

“The football team’s moving forward,” McCarthy said. “The train has left the station, whatever analogy you want. He needs to jump on the train and let’s go. Or, if we can’t get past things that have happened, I have to keep the train moving.”

After reading that quote I can honestly see the coach breakout into his version of “Proud Mary.”

“They told him, ‘We’ll trade you, but not within the division,’ “Favre’s agent, James “Bus” Cook, told USA Today for Wednesday’s editions. “His first desire was to play here. Their first desire was for him not to play here.”

McCarthy is keeping quiet about the trade talks, but did say a quick resolution to the situation is important to the rest of his players.

“Absolutely,” McCarthy said. “The players, they want it resolved. Even talk to Brett about it — he feels bad about it. It’s time for them to talk about somebody else.”

“We’re at a stalemate,” Favre told ESPN’s Chris Mortensen. “Mike and I both agreed last night that me being out there is a distraction and will continue to be a distraction. We all know the reason I’m here is because the commissioner reinstated me, so we have a lot of things to figure out. It’s simple and complicated, both at the same time.”

When this mess does end one thing is certain, Thompson and McCarthy, will be known as, the guys who ran Fa*** out of Town.

He’s going to retire, he’s not going to retire, he wants to take the buy out, he doesn’t want to take the buyout, he wants to play for the Packers, he doesn’t want to play for the Packers, he doesn’t want to play for Tampa, he wants to play for Tampa….does this guy even know what he wants. I’m so sick of this being on every sports channel 24/7 that I could puke. The guy is acting like a spoiled kid. “I’m going to take my ball and go home”. I’ll admit he is a great player but I honestly do not blame the Packers for being tired of his antics. As football fans I believe we all are.

Matt Jones was just “Holding” the Drugs…(Yeah…Right…Sure)

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on July 16, 2008

On advice from some snot-nosed attorney, Jaguars wide receiver & former Arkansas QB, Matt Jones isn’t squealing like a razorback about being charged with felony possession of cocaine.

However his pappy, Steve Jones, eager to get on TV issued a statement to KNWA-TV in Fayetteville, Ark., stating his coked up dumbass son is denying that the drugs belonged to him that ultimately led to his arrest and thus me mocking him.

“Matt is anxious to make a statement and wants to make a statement,” said the statement issued to the television station. “His attorney has advised him to not say anything until they have had a chance to speak together. They will release a statement at the appropriate time.

“We want to make it clear that Matt was not in possession of any drugs,” the statement continued, “but that there were drugs in the vehicle and were located in the closest proximity to Matt. He does not claim any responsibility for the drugs.”

You tell’em pops! Of course by that logic there must have thousands maybe even millions of people falsely arrested and prosecuted for drug possession.

But…for some reason the police report seems to tell a different story and really helps to that theory out of the water.

Jones was spotted in the backseat of a Toyota 4Runner when an officer on foot patrol saw him with a “white powdery substance and in his hand, a credit card that he was using to chop up and scrape the powder.”

When asked by the officer if the powder was cocaine, Jones said, “Yes.”

You know that’s an old SEC football player pastime. Getting stopped by the Po Po and admitting that the drugs that were found were yours and then deny it in the media. South Carolina players do it all the time.

What would have made this story perfect is if the police officer embellished the report a little by saying “then Jones took a big snort of said power and uttered ‘My God I can’t feel my face.’”

Chris Henry is Broke & it is Your Problem Cincinnati

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on July 9, 2008

Chris Henry has made 2.5 million since 2005 as a member of the Cincinnati Thugs Bengalis yet the boy is so broke that Michael Vick looks like Bill Gates compared to him. Guess what fair citizens of Cincinnati it’s your problem because Henry wants taxpayers to pay for a trial record.

“He’s broke,” said Perry Ancona, the former player’s attorney. “He doesn’t have any money to pay for a transcript.”

And that comment cost the taxpayers of Cincinnati at least fifty big ones.

Ancona filed a motion asking for taxpayers, you know the people who actually work, to pay for a written transcript of Henry’s trial. Henry was arrested after a March 31 incident and charged with criminal damaging and assault.

A judge threw out the criminal damaging charge, saying Cincinnati prosecutors couldn’t prove the allegation. A mistrial was declared last week on the assault charge when jurors couldn’t come to a unanimous verdict. Jurors said they voted 6-2 to acquit Henry.

But prosecutors said Tuesday they would retry Henry on the misdemeanor assault charge.

Henry’s trial was set for Monday.

Henry, a wide receiver drafted in the third round out of WVU, signed a five-year contract for about $6 million. The contract included annual salaries plus playing-time and other incentives.

He received another $1 million to sign plus an average of just over $500,000 for the first three years. He was to be paid $520,000 this year by the team but the team released him after his arrest.

But Ancona claims Henry is as destitute as the Bengalis defense was last year.

“He has no funds whatsoever and can’t even meet his current obligations,” Ancona told the judge.

Don’t worry though, Jerry Jones will sign him. That way he can have the top 2 convicts in the league on each side of the ball. (Pacman Jones) Anyone notice both of them went to the same school?

Henry’s $360,000 Florence house – he bought it in 2005 during his rookie year – was auctioned in May when he failed to pay the mortgage. How the hell we missed that story here I’ll never know.

Henry’s SUV was repossessed last month while he was in court, which was a lot. Damn it Joel you let that one slip by me as well? Ugh!

Henry, who is suspended by the National Football League, was arrested after a March 31 incident in Clifton Heights in which he was accused of punching Gregory Meyer, 18, in the head.

Ancona said in court Tuesday that Meyer tried to “shake down” Henry by asking for $100,000 to make the charges go away.

The assault charge against Henry carries a maximum sentence of 180 days in jail.

Henry wants to continue a professional football career and needs to be acquitted to do that.

However I think he could work at the McDonalds or he could sell pot, seeing as he has a history around it.

Chris, your “friends” aren’t helping you out?
You know, all those people who helped drink your liquor?
Unemployment benefits?
Pretend to be a gas pump?
Pathetic.

Don Imus loves Black people

Posted by Muna Osisioma on July 1, 2008

It turns out that when Don Imus said this:

He actually was standing up for Adam “Make it Rain” Jones. Don’t believe me? Lets hear it from the man himself

“What people should be outraged about is that they arrest blacks for no reason”.
“I mean, there’s no reason to arrest this kid six times. Maybe he did something once, but everyone does something once.”

Imus said that he was simply using his platform as a radio host to speak out against racism and foster race relations. He also reminded anyone who would listen that he now has more blacks on his show than ever before. He now has a mindboggling number of black people; a grand total of 3 ( a producer and 2 co-hosts). 3 black people? The place is literally crawling with black folks!!

So here is to you sir. Defender of the defenseless and protector of black people; Don Imus.
