Far-right extremists have killed more people in the United States than Muslim extremist...

18 April 2014 - 09:49 PM

In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda's ideology. According to a count by the New America Foundation, right wing extremists have killed 34 people in the United States for political reasons since 9/11. (The total includes the latest shootings in Kansas, which are being classified as a hate crime).

By contrast, terrorists motivated by al Qaeda's ideology have killed 21 people in the United States since 9/11.

(Although a variety of left wing militants and environmental extremists have carried out violent attacks for political reasons against property and individuals since 9/11, none have been linked to a lethal attack, according to research by the New America Foundation.)


Is anyone susprised by this?


Rivera comments on Steve Smith, or does he?! Warning: high levels of Gantt inside

18 April 2014 - 10:31 AM

Per PFT:

But instead of turning to other football coaches, Panthers coach Ron Rivera spent time with NASCAR crew chief Chad Knaus, who has led Jimmie Johnson to six titles.

In 2010, with three races to go in the season, Knaus once replaced his entire seven-man pit crew, which — without knowing much about car racing — seems vaguely analogous to Rivera blowing up his wide receiver corps this offseason.

“This guy may jack the car up a 10th of a second faster, but he doesn’t work as well together with others,” Rivera said via David Newton of ESPN.com, “while this guy may be a 10th of a second slower, yet he works well with everybody. We’re the same way. It’s about, ‘How does this guy fit in the locker room?’”

That sound you hear is a bus being driven over Steve Smith, an obvious shot at the best player in franchise history, who was cut earlier this offseason for reasons that had nothing to do with football.


Blake Griffin believes that Earth is 6,000 years old

16 April 2014 - 09:40 AM

...or does he? 


The revelation came after contributing editor Rob Tannenbaum asked the NBA star, 25, whether he’s “Team Creationism or Team Evolution,” considering the fact that he was home schooled through the 7th grade.

“I was raised in a Christian household and went to a Christian high school, so I believe in creationisim, for sure,” Griffin responded.


Tannenbaum followed up by asking if the NBA star also believes that the Earth is only 6,000 years old, to which Griffin replied, “I don’t want to do the math, but somewhere around there.”

Deadspin’s Tom Ley responded to the possibility that Griffin is a creationist, writing, “Now, Griffin is known to be a very witty guy who possesses a dry sense of humor, so it’s entirely possible that he was just joking. We really, really hope he was joking.”

Ley wasn’t alone in questioning Griffin’s response.

“It’s not often that you meet a pro athlete who thinks that the Russell Crowe movie ‘Noah’ is a documentary,” added Sports Grid’s Rick Chandler. “But could Griffin have been kidding here? Well, he was home schooled, did attend Christian high school and is devoutly religious.”








The best part is reading the comments.


Holy poo those people are NUTS.

I need a bath.

Desean Jackson released *update* Rivera interested *UPDATE X2* Rivera interest was a sm...

28 March 2014 - 11:43 AM

Any tiny chance we had to get him probably goes out the window now.

@Eagles: After careful consideration this offseason, Eagles decide to part ways with DeSean Jackson. The team informed him of his release today.

Welcome to the Raydaa's Desean.




Rivera said he and general manager Dave Gettleman will discuss the possibility of pursuing Jackson.

"That is something that has to be discussed,'' Rivera said. "Yeah, we'll have to gauge the direction we can go.''

Salary is an obvious issue for the cap-strapped Panthers who have roughly $5 million in cap space. Jackson was set to earn $10.7 million this season and count $12.5 million against the salary cap in 2014. His release will save the Eagles $6.5 million in cap space.

"It depends on the numbers,'' Rivera said. "You have to negotiate around the numbers. We'll see what happens. It will be interesting to see what happens in the next couple of days.''
