El Picks

Gotta start picking it up this is the week.

So my thoughts on the Dolphins thing is predictable. Martin is a pussy. But here's the thing. This is the stance you choose to take? I mean you are grasping for sympathy here I see the play but you are for certain alienating yourself from the NFL. With 80% of the fins locker room supporting Ingcognegro it's a lock he won't be back there.

The news is bad for the NFL on that Dorsett story from yesterday but again maybe it's because I'm just a NFL fan and I don't care what happens before games, after games 20 years after games I just care what happens during the games - I don't give a shit. People that play football from the 80's on lets say had to have known that tackle football would fuck you up later in life. Runners know that their legs or feet or knees will be shot if they run for 20 years. Wrestlers know they batter their body. Boxers know they will have brain damage at some point. Why don't football players know that bashing your head into other bodies is potentially going to be a bad deal later in life? Why does the NFL have to answer for this - that they knowingly hid proof from them? And what were they supposed to do?

Seattle -5.5 over ATLANTA
Hawks really haven't played well the past couple of week but Atlanta is done. Throw this year away. Ryan is forcing balls, they have no running game and they are getting scorched on defense. All three phases.

Detroit +1 over BEARS
Cutty back. Still like Detroit who had their way with the Bears last meeting.

you may not give a shit, but you have to understand why the nfl has to give a shit, right?

"you may not give a shit, but you have to understand why the nfl has to give a shit, right?"

yes, and they do - now just saying i get thier view

did it take them too long?
no fucking idea what was presented to them (that documentary was the biggest piece of one sided libel I've ever seen)

it was basically a mike moore dump on the NFL i'm sure a fuckload of shit was left out of it that would have made the nfl look a little bit more competent

it's the same parallel argument as people eating like shit then dying of eating like shit related illnesses then they turn to government and say why did you let me eat donuts every day - why didnt you ban trans fat why why why why why

it's never what I should have done, it's never my choices were shitty it's always WHO FAILED ME

i fcuking hate it i hate everything that has been happening in this country lately from a society perspective- the social media generation is just awful and i got kids that have to grow up now in it

I love the argument "it needs to stay in the locker room". The NFL is a business. If harassment/bullying/whatever happens at my company, it's not kept in the "locker room". The NFL is a business, there is no difference.

when used properly they are great, even fuckbook*

but most of the time they just turn shitty people into shittier people

Keef said...

Shitty people will find a way to be shittier, irregardless* of the platform

The Meiz said...

I want to get this right. LP doesn't think a kid who is Stanford educated, has 2 uber-educated parents, comes from an affluent, wealthy social class could be outcast and grossly mistreated and disrespected by run of the mill middle/working/lower class football players?

Hmmm. : /

"I want to get this right. LP doesn't think a kid who is Stanford educated, has 2 uber-educated parents, comes from an affluent, wealthy social class could be outcast and grossly mistreated and disrespected by run of the mill middle/working/lower class football players?"

glad you read what i wrote

no question he was mistreated, no question at all but im arguing the way he is playing it

leaving the team
seeing a mental care professional
not dealing with it, running, calling people out, outing an entire culture, blowing up the media, lawyers, etc.

Keef said...

How do you know he didn't deal with it? How do you know that he didn't confront anyone about it?

Keef said...

I don't think martin blew up the media. He left the team. The media ran with that and dug everything else up

El Padrino said...

"How do you know he didn't deal with it? How do you know that he didn't confront anyone about it?"

because they said he didnt?

Keef said...

seeing a mental care professional



At first I thought it was probably a little redonk that he did that. But I've changed that stance. It's better than the alternative of just going into the locker room with guns blazing

El Padrino said...

"I don't think martin blew up the media. "

he releases statements through a mouthpiece lawyer to the media

are you following the story at all or just trying to fux wit me?

El Padrino said...

and what did he think was going to happen anyway when he "left the team"

Keef said...

because they said he didnt?




Oh, well if a room full of guys who have the other guy's back said he didn't, then I guess we have to believe them.

Keef said...

he releases statements through a mouthpiece lawyer to the media



Everyone involved in the story is releasing statements

El Padrino said...

"Oh, well if a room full of guys who have the other guy's back said he didn't, then I guess we have to believe them"

the head coach, the gm, the owner
the coaches beneath the coach the leaders in the locker room

that pretty much covers the whole "how do we know" he didnt tell anyone unless everyone is lying and covering up

Keef said...

"but im arguing the way he is playing it"
"because they said he didnt?"


Didn't his agent go to the GM and talked about what was going on, and the GM just said that Martin needed to throw down with Incognito. At that point, you have to know that mgmt is like whatever.

El Padrino said...

fins were so taken aback of the story they released three statememnts saturday one denying, one investigating and one saying he's suspended

they had no clue, no one but martin did

Keef said...

You can believe that the team had no idea what was going on. I'll choose to believe that they did.

Jugdish said...

the fish are covering stuff up

Jugdish said...

and incognito has some serious issues. story about him getting drunk at a golf event and groping a chick

Jugdish said...

and AFTER that incident, an incident in which they probably paid the chick off, the fish put incognito on their leadership counsel. good call!

Keef said...

and incognito has some serious issues



understatement

Keef said...

story about him getting drunk at a golf event and groping a chick


If there wasn't this sex offender list going around id grope bitches on the train this morning

El Pagnito

El Padrino said...

looking back maybe but it's clear they did know just weren't connecting the dots and they failed at having thier finger on the pulse of the locker room

apparentely coaches leave that shit alone, leave it to the players to handle it

cant be the only time there was an outkast* in the locker room there are plenty of players that come from the same pedigree

just dont see why you leave the team, then act like a battered woman

if it's that bad why not storm the hc office and just tell all?

Keef said...

TOTPM has been updated with that quote

I can't either. But you're trying to use rational thinking when comparing yourself to someone that probably has mental issues and might not think rationally.

The Meiz said...

"running away like a bitch is not the answer"

He didn't "run away like a bitch". When you have a whole bunch of people intimidating and punking you at every turn, the best option is to take it to the top. You wanna try to literally have hands with 30 people? Not me, jack.

When people are fucking my shit up at work, and nothing is being done about it, I take my shit to the CFO and the VPs that can fix shit in a heartbeat.

And I don't necessarily think Martin has mental issues, I think he might be suffering from some serious culture shock.

it would be nice to hear some more information from martin's camp on this issue

Now that most everyone is lawyered up, you're probably not going to hear anything constructive until the NFL releases their findings.

that's about 200+ out of 1700 or so

old fashioned mouse traps and some peanut butter.

What Was I Thinking? said...

"The NFL is a business. If harassment/bullying/whatever happens at my company, it's not kept in the "locker room". The NFL is a business, there is no difference"

NFL is a business where dudes shower together and constantly see each other naked. Their version of harassment is different than the version of harassment in an office environment.

does that make what happened ok? fuck if i know. all i know is that the line between what i can do to/with a co-worker at my office before i get in trouble is different than the line an NFL player has to cross.

Keef said...

Their version of harassment is different than the version of harassment in an office environment.



If I had to guess, I would say the legal definition of harassment would be the same, even though we view it as a different environment. I'm probably wrong, but that's my guess

The Meiz said...

"players graduate from ivy league schools and/or come from affulent househoolds"


Negative. You have nothing to back this up. Did you look into Martin's parents' background? Those are some top level 1%ers.

El Padrino said...

no but im sure google does

The Meiz said...

10% of NFL players' parents are not these people.

no way of knowing my figure is wrong you can google ivy league schools (stanford is not ivy league so google twice) in nfl but you dont know the parents of these players

The Meiz said...

"are you saying 90% of nfl locker rooms are a bunch of dumb jocks or freakishly athletic strong dumb black dudes?"

No, straw man. There are obviously "regular folks" in there. Even then, people that are of the Martins' ilk would STILL very possibly have a very difficult time relating to those people.

No, can't clock in outside of the building, and OT is now on "no OT" status. We're on a spending freeze.
