What are your actions teaching your players? What is the culture within your team? What are you teaching aspiring and future NFL players?

Will you teach them to be great? To be leaders? To work hard? Will you teach them how to take the hit and keep moving forward or will you complain and give excuses… Continue reading

Oh, the Irony: The Patriots vs. the NFL, ESPN and Sports Illustrated

The NFL obviously doesn’t like to lose. Within mere days after Judge Berman’s ruling, all kinds of new lows have emerged from the depths:

  1. A misleading photo of Kraft with two other gentlemen, drinking and laughing is plopped smack under the headline ‘Patriots owner, ‘Deflategate’ judge mingle at a party. The truth? If you go to the New York gossip website Page Six who broke the story, you will see the names of those in the photo: Ron Perelmen, Robert Kraft, and Jack Welsh. No photo of the judge and Kraft exist, for the fact that they were introduced, spoke politely for a couple of minutes, and were never seen together before or since.
  2. On Tuesday…two days before the Patriots home-opening game…ESPN’s Outside the Lines, unleashes a forty page expose mixing facts with dazzling urban legends they have titled ‘Spygate to Deflategate: Inside what split the NFL and Patriots apart
  3. On the same day ESPN slammed the Patriots with a propaganda-esque style campaign fit for a John Steinbeck novel, Sports Illustrated’s article waves its magic football needle to pump more hot air into the heads of the true victims here: the general public.

The irony of all this? In a desperate attempt to smear the Patriots’ name and credibility, the NFL, ESPN, and Sport’s Illustrated, are destroying their own reputations. Continue reading

Do You Support Roger Goodell Over Tom Brady? Be Careful What You Wish For

in·teg·ri·ty
inˈteɡrədē/
noun
1. the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles; moral uprightness.

2. a trigger word used by the NFL to justify a set up and a mass PR scandal which would eventually lead to an unprecedented punishment handed down by the NFL in order to gain complete power and authority by setting a legal precedent for players and/or teams facing punishment in the future.

There’s an old saying that aptly applies to those who want to see “justice” finally come down on the “Cheatriots”:

Be careful what you wish for. Continue reading

How Mike Kensil, the Mastermind Behind Deflategate, Framed the Patriots

It’s one thing to set up a sting to catch someone in the act of a crime, but it’s a whole different ball game when an official plants evidence in order to justify an investigation. It doesn’t matter if the official believes the suspect is guilty, planting evidence is a crime. In fact in the real world, it’s a felony.

After reading the Wells report, most took it at face value that it was the Colts’ interception that sparked a half time inspection of the Patriots footballs. This isn’t the case. It isn’t far fetched to suspect that Mike Kensil knew he was going to inspect the Patriots footballs before the AFC Championship game started. He could accomplish this feat by planting evidence of an illegal football known as the K-ball, or kicking ball.

This would be the justification needed to inspect all the footballs at half time. Continue reading

The NFL Tyrants Hiding Behind the Word Integrity

Education is a weapon whose effects depend on who holds it in his hands and at whom it is aimed. ~Joseph Stalin, former leader of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union

Joseph Stalin knows a thing or two about propaganda and shaping public opinion. Stalin didn’t get into a position of power by telling the masses the truth of his agenda. In fact, he hid behind words such as equality and fairness to the people. He shamed capitalism by telling the people how the rich exploit the poor.

If history has taught us anything, it is to always ask questions of one’s true agenda.

Those in any position of power are scariest when their agenda is not clear. Instead of honesty, these leaders hide behind positive words such as “integrity” to justify their tyranny. Roger Goodell and the front office leaders of the NFL are no exception. Continue reading

The NFL Played You With a Deflated Ball…and Won

Based on the public outcry and the reaction from the first day that “deflategate” was born, the NFL knew you wouldn’t care about the full truth of what really happened prior to, during and shortly after the AFC championship game. They knew you wanted to see Tom Brady hang and you wanted the NFL to find proof. They knew the attention wouldn’t be on whether or not they are the true enforcers of the NFL shield, standing for integrity and justice. All you wanted to know was one thing: Was Tom Brady and the Patiots guilty of deflating footballs.

The NFL has spent millions of dollars for your public opinion and you fell for it, hook, line and sinker. Continue reading
