(www.basnnewsroom.com) There is a line sung from one of my favorite bands which goes:
“The proud Mother of God, like all whores…is jealous of her own shadow.”
The compromised mainstream media and the National Football League have one thing in common…they’re both fulla shit!
Less than 48 hours ago, it was found that the NFL had been busted to such a degree in its efforts to aggressively collude and negate the careers of former San Francisco 49ers Colin Kaepernick and Eric Reid that they were awarded an undisclosed sum o’ cash for their time and trouble…
While no official word has been presented as to exactly how much, estimates are reported to be between $60 to 80 million dollars. That amount would make a whole bunch of muthafuckas salty over at the NFL’s home base on Park Avenue; 80 Milly…is a whole lotta salt – but let’s be clear – this was the NFL’s fault. They sought to break a young man whose initial motive for his actions was being sick and tired…of being sick and tired.
An event over three years in the making, Kaepernick, a multi-ethnic kid who was raised in an affluent area in California, saw atrocities by police which led to no redress
like the video murder of Eric Garner in New York, Sandra Bland in Texas and Philando Castile’s shooting in Minnesota (by a maniac cop with his daughter and partner in the car) among countless others…
Whatever combination of emotions came over him, Kaepernick had the presence of mind to understand what he would face, and made a conscious decision to protest the injustice levied upon people of color – especially Black men – by police.
Kaepernick then followed through on his protest by not standing for the National Anthem. When questioned about it, he explained about the unchecked police violence and deftly fielded every question…
Soon after, the NFL’s attack dogs went after Kaepernick, implying he was ‘un-American’ for not standing up for the flag. Kaepernick then exposed to many why he had gained such disdain for the full Anthem; specifically, the stanza which reads:
And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
A home and a Country should leave us no more?
Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
No refuge could save the hireling and slave
From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
Never mind Francis Scott Key getting butthurt over his forces gettin’ their asses whupped, the full discovery of this would give any thinking person pause to ponder, but too much energy was being expended to discredit Kaepernick in deeming him an Enemy of the State…
As The Mouse (ESPN) turned, FOX and any talking head willing to run his or her yap was pushing the agenda to hurt Kaepernick; but while all this Dick Dastardly shit was afoot, his #7 49ers jersey began climbing up the charts in sales!
While the money was being counted, it was becoming apparent the League’s greed was getting the best of themselves as previous articles by BASN and Blackathlete.com, revealed efforts by the four major sports leagues to take taxpayer money for purpose of presenting pre-game ceremonies, with the NFL taking the lion’s share of funding!
As this information was slowly being made public, efforts to further hurt Kaep escalated. With quarterback after quarterback going down in the manner exposing need and possible hiring, Kaepernick, after a season where he was named the team’s outstanding player with a TD/INT ratio of four to one (16 TDs, 4 INTs) couldn’t garner a smidgen of interest. Making the situation worse, everyone talked about Kaepernick as if had acquired a virus on air and off…
ARE YOU NOW OR HAVE YOU EVER BEEN A MUTHAFUCKA??
The turning point that something wasn’t right was the continuous efforts of the League to offer work to quarterbacks who were far inferior in ability to Kaepernick; the epitome of such nonsense was giving Jay Cutler, a whiny underachiever with a negative career won / loss career record, comes out of broadcast booth retirement and scarfs up a one year, $10 million contract to play for the Miami Dolphins.
When asked about why Kaepernick wouldn’t work, The Dolphins essentially bought themselves 10 million dollars worth of silence, even after the below .500 standards set by the team that season.
Two years of football drafts and free agency go by, yet no one can use the services of a Super Bowl QB with a post-season record of 4-2 as a starter and who set a record for yards rushing by a QB (180) in a playoff game against Green Bay…
So now we have to always remember to roll this back and approach it from a “W5” aspect. Let’s ask the questions:
WHO the fuck initiated the action to attack Kaepernick in the first place? Was it Commissioner Goodell himself, another official or an owner ordering him to act on his/her behalf? And how did that work for ya when veterans from all the Armed Services spoke up in support of Kaepernick’s right to do what he did?
WHAT the fuck was to be the end game? Was it to blacklist Kaep and intimidate others who might wish to speak out? Or perhaps elevate the ‘indentured servant’ profile of those working that hundred-yard plantation as ‘good Nigras’ doing what Massa wanted them to? Compliance and conformity are not synonymous…
When the fuck was this going to end? Black QBs have to put up with enough shit as it is trying to be all things to all people within the framework of a franchise while appeasing White people; and it is likely most of the negative noise was gonna come from muthafuckas who either never played the game or resentful fucks who did but fell far short of their expectations!
Kaepernick was in the midst of his peak years when the shit hit the fan! Oh, and by the way – when are all you Mel Kiper, Todd McNugget and their wannabes gonna shut the FUCK up about deliberately messing with the Brothers by regurgitating that “must throw from the pocket” code bullshit – deliberately devaluing their bonus $$$ potential because of your poison? Shut the FUCK up! (Kiper’s for losers!)
WHERE the fuck was this propaganda/psych war shit supposed to lead? Was the goal designed to make the NFL appear more patriotic than other leagues? Well, if you’re gonna do that, why take cash from the armed services for advertising? Do that shit for FREE!
We already know Arizona state senators Flake and McCain (deceased) had taxpayer money set aside for the pre-game ceremonies as far back as a decade ago. All you did was tap into the toxic environment of resentment and racism for your own selfish ends…ya low-life afterbirth, no-business bein’ born sons of bitches!
WHY the fuck would you even think of conceiving a scenario of undercutting someone’s career? Attrition alone would’ve handled that for you! Never mind the useless NFLPA of which Kaep faithfully paid dues to. The complaint should’ve gone up the ladder to his shop steward (player rep) and handled in – house; but someone above the pay grade wanted this to play out as Kaepernick being perceived as an un-American/Marxist/Socialist/tryin’ to Exist/…
Oh…and DeMaurice Smith is putting Ralph Ellison to shame…
Former teammate Eric Reid’s support made him collateral damage; and until he ended up on Carolina’s roster, none of the talking heads would imply Reid was being blacklisted as well.
All this leads me to believe that The NFL should be charged with first – degree felonious cock sucking, with intent to swallow the evidence; and that they got off easy if they only had to spend $80 million.
To be continued…
Always outnumbered…never outgunned.
