In Topic: Adrian Peterson deactivated AGAIN indefinitely

Today, 05:23 AM

This is an attempt at a broader view of the injustices that are occurring on a societal level. For those who care read on. For those who believe this is off topic I do apologize and ask you to skip this post now.

 

Here is the slippery slope with Hardy. His offense is a misdemeanor, and he is considered innocent of the allegations until the verdict in his jury trial. What precedent will be set for all the individuals in the NFL appealing felony charges like DUI, aggravated assault, or drug abuse? They will all stand the trial of public opinion and be banned from the NFL indefinitely.

 

The biggest issue I see with all of this is the cultural evils of mob mentality created by social media. Yellow journalism, witch hunts, and virtual lynch mobs are gaining a modern day momentum. What once was an issue of cyber-bullying among children is taking the next step in its maturation into a hideous beast that will perpetuate the cultural decay of what remains of our constitutional values.

 

Can you stand by the declaration of independence when you do not allow the system to work?

 

'We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.'

 

When you disregard the Bill of Rights tenants of 'Due Process' and 'Presumption of Innocence' does this not weaken the foundation and principles expressed within the Bill of Rights? Does one still have freedom of speech outside of government activities? Or does freedom of speech no longer exist when applied to the private sector?

 

'... nor be deprived of life, liberty, or property, without due process of law.'

 

I put forth the assertion that the media and public by assembling together, by physical or virtual means, in an effort to coerce and degrade the liberties of an innocent man, as expressed by the intent of the Constitution of the United States of America and the Declaration of Independence, is a form of unlawful assembly. No different than a public flogging. An act of mob justice spearheaded by vigilante justice among individuals in the press. A form of sharia law by social media. A virtual form of a lynch mob.

 

When one tenant of the Bill of Rights is degraded, it degrades the foundation of all of our rights. Including the right so dearly held by the media with our first amendment. An inalienable right that infringes on another persons inalienable right no longer becomes a right, but rather an assault on the freedoms we hold dear as citizens of the United States of America - a verbal threat to 'Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness'.

 

I champion the intent of the 5th amendment as much as I do the 1st amendment. No more; no less. The value of every amendment, of the Constitution of the United States of America, is equal to that of any other amendment. While these rights are expressly placed on public institutions, any United States citizen who values freedom and displays moral rectitude will apply their intent to private institutions as well.

 

Allow 'due process' its rightful place in society. Deny the violence, rage, and vengeance through the media and virtual worlds which feed the gluttonous desire of the masses insatiable appetite for instant gratification.  This egocentric cancer continues to permeate the foundation of morality and virtue of our nation - of our own person. 

 

Instant justice is not a justice anyone should desire. Justice by the emotional climate of the mob is no way to progress a society. Justice must come through the virtues of patience and temperance to reveal truth. I will leave you with this quote of justice on a social scale in the hopes that everyone can step back and evaluate their role in another persons life and tribulations.

 

"The challenge of social justice is to evoke a sense of community that we need to make our nation a better place, just as we make it a safer place."

Those Eagles are going to hate it when they face a good defense with speed to shut down McCoy and Sproles.


In Topic: Speed at Wide Receiver

15 September 2014 - 08:28 PM

Seahawks have Harvin. Ravens have Torey Smith and Jacoby Jones. Giants had Victor Cruz and you could argue Hakeem Nicks. Packers had Jennings and Nelson. Saints Henderson and Meachem. Steelers Santonio Holmes. Should I continue?

 

If these are speed receivers by your definition, then we have Cotchery and Avant. You do realize you listed receivers with 4.5 and 4.6 40s. I would not call that a speed receiver.

 

Harvin and Henderson had no impact on offense against good playoff defenses. Meachem played third fiddle to Shockey and Colston. Santonio Holmes played third fiddle to Hines Ward and Heath Miller. Santonio was mostly forgettable in playoff/big games, but when you face the 28th ranked defense in the Super Bowl to get that big game it goes to support my argument.

 

I will take the Jerry Rice, Michael Irvin, Lynn Swann, John Stallworth, Wes Welker, Deion Branch, Troy Brown, Hines Ward, Andre Reed, Anquan Boldin, Larry Fitzgerald, Antonio Freeman, or Rod Smith (all 4.5 to 4.7 40 times) over any speed receiver you could list.

 

Muhsin Muhammad has the longest reception in Super Bowl history while racking up 140 yards in the game. It wan't the speed of Steve Smith that kept up with the Patriots defense.

 

Speed does not beat the best defenses in the NFL. Speed is overrated at the receiver position.


In Topic: Peter King busted

15 September 2014 - 07:05 PM

Ok, I caved and clicked the link for the mmqb article. I was struck by:


"The only reason Greg Hardy hadn’t been suspended before coach Ron Rivera had the common sense (or the direction from embarrassed Panthers owner Jerry Richardson) is because—as Jon Wertheim and Emily Kaplan of SI and The MMQB wrote this weekend—there wasn’t a video, the way there was with Ray Rice. But read the trial testimony, and pore over the guilty verdict, and you’ll understand why so many people are outraged that Hardy played in Week 1, or will play at all for Carolina this season."


Read the trial testimony?

What trial testimony?

http://profootballta...irst-trial-yet/

 

So, let me sum this up. Peter King and SI believe the only reason Hardy has not been suspended is because there is no proof of physical assault. But read the testimony that led to all the physical accusations being tossed and you see he yelled at and threatened a coked up drunk woman who would not leave his apartment and started to assault him physically while being held back by others at the apartment.

 

I tend to agree with Peter King and his genius here. There is no proof of aggravated assault = no suspension. What an idiot.

 

BTW, this Hardy nonsense is over a misdemeanor charge. However, a more serious crime like DUI/DWI sees players like Nick Fairley go untouched as he appeals and appeals and appeals some more. Makes perfect sense to an idiot. Let the system work and stop these insane witch hunts. You get your pizza in 30 minutes or less; not your justice. Patience is a virtue that many discard for instant gratification.


In Topic: Who will be our DC next season?

15 September 2014 - 06:51 PM

The question should be: who will be our OC next year?

 

John Ramsdell. lol It will still be Mike Shula. He will be among the top 10 OCs in moving his team into the red zone yet again. That is how you measure an OC. Get used to it.
