Y’know, I don’t agree with Colin Kaepernick sitting and kneeling during the anthem, but that’s his constitutional right. However, all the people whining and crying about it weeks later after the media originally caught onto his shenanigans are the biggest pussies in America right now. Social media can be a disaster for rapid, impulse reactions and silly statements opined by people who trip over themselves when they can’t get to the keyboard fast enough.
Somebody I know posted about boycotting the San Francisco 49ers’ throttling of the Los Angeles Rams on Monday Night Football last night (before the game, of course; if you are going to boycott the game, boycott it because one awful team — the Rams — let the other awful team — the 49ers — whip ’em), and there were a couple of people in the comments agreeing to do the same. What’s the difference between whining, crybaby idiocy like that & whining, crybaby liberals? Not one thing. The two go together like Blue Moon and mango habanero chicken wings from Buffalo Wild Wings…
At this point, it’s a joke. The media is keeping this story alive, because people like that have their panties in a wad over it! Again, I don’t agree with Kaep, but the world keeps spinning and we all keep eating and shitting! Time for people like the dude on Facebook and others who also ‘boycotted‘ the game to put their big boy/girl pants on and suck it up. Time to be a grownup and accept that everybody has differing opinions, values and views. Hardcore left-wing nuts and right-wing nuts are guilty of the same bullshit. Boycotting a football game because a BACKUP quarterback is kneeling during the anthem? Shew… they say liberals are pussies, but these idiots like the dude on Facebook are getting their panties in a wad just the same.
As for the Rams’ performance last night, it is what it is. I expected a fight out of them. I even expected the team to neutralize the 49ers, since the defense is ‘supposed‘ to be top notch… instead, the 49ers had their way with the Rams and won 28-0.
It shouldn’t, but it amazes me that Jeff Fisher is still around. He’s probably the most overrated head coach in the history of the NFL. He had a few good seasons with Steve McNair and the Titans, including a Super Bowl appearance, before he became comfortable with a reputation of mediocrity and subpar play. Oh, and yeah, he had an anomaly of a good season with Kerry Collins in 2008, but that team bowed out as soon as the divisional round of the playoffs rolled around.
Fisher came to the Rams in 2012 and the team has posted four consecutive losing seasons, and I’m sure this season will mirror the same, but he’ll be kept around with excuses like, “the team just drafted a rookie quarterback!” (who isn’t even playing) and, “the team just moved to Los Angeles! Give him a break!”
Rams’ owner Stan Kroenke isn’t even about winning. He’s about making money from the team. That’s it. However, he’ll eventually find out that the money won’t come around if the product on the field isn’t any good, especially in Los Angeles. Los Angeles sports fans are the biggest fairweather fans on the planet. If the team is good, they’ll be there hootin’ and hollerin’. If the team sucks, you’ll hear crickets in the stadium. Besides, a college football program rules that area, anyway, in the realm of pigskin.
I’m genuinely jealous of sports fans who root for teams with owners with a winning mindset. It must be nice to know that, even when your team sucks, they are actively making moves to become better. The Rams are simply farting in the goddamn wind.
The Rams can keep losing. I’ll still be a fan, because after all, it’s just a game played by spoiled millionaires.
