    NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell informed a House committee today that either its interns don’t know how Google works or the Congresscritters are unaware real life isn’t like the Washington Post, where public temper tantrums usually bring about the desired staffing results. Goodell’s information impartation took place before the House Committee on Oversight and Reform, which for reasons unbeknownst to all, save perhaps its members’ campaign managers, has assumed upon itself the role of overseeing and reforming NFL team owners, specifically Washington Redskins Commanders owner Dan Snyder. Who could most likely use some oversight and reform, but since Congress has solved...
  • New York Born Roza Ganser Condemens PC Pile-On On Football Player For "Just Having Fun" With Beautiful Babe

    Jordan De Goey will not play football this Sunday for Collingwood Football Club because relentless PC bullying has effected his mental health. His club has withdrawn a contract renewal offer which put him in the champion bracket of pay deals by Australian football standards. That is the free market in operation. He is perceived to have damaged his brand so he almost certainly will struggle to command the money previously offered from Collingwood who have salary cap problems. (Earlier in his career he knocked back big bucks to go to North Melbourne and stayed at Collingwood. In 2018 he kicked...

    In a speech to the graduating class of the US Naval Academy, President Biden revealed that in 1965 Sen. Senator J. Caleb Boggs (R-Del) signed a letter recommending him for admission to the Naval Academy. Biden said he decided not to go to the Academy because his desire to play starting quarterback on the football team was blocked by Roger Staubach—the greatest player to ever play for Navy and later MVP for the Superbowl winning Dallas Cowboys. Biden played football in high school, but graduated from the University of Delaware in 1965 with no varsity football experience. In a speech...

    One of the hallmarks of a bully, of a cruel human being, is attacking people who don't always have the political power or resources to defend themselves. We saw a good example of this in 2019, when the Trump administration, in a remarkably cold move, attempted to kill federal funding for the Special Olympics. If you've never seen the Special Olympics, which gives athletes with certain intellectual disabilities the opportunity to compete in several different events, it is a remarkable thing to watch. These Olympics don't just represent the best of sports. They represent the best of humanity. The motto...

    An investigation of official statistics has found that the number of athletes who have died since the beginning of 2021 has risen exponentially compared to the yearly number of deaths of athletes officially recorded between 1966 and 2004. So much so that the monthly average number of deaths between January 2021 and April 2022 is 1,700% higher than the monthly average between 1966 and 2004, and the current trend for 2022 so far shows this could increase to 4,120% if the increased number of deaths continues, with the number of deaths in March 2022 alone 3 times higher than the...

"We remain steadfast in our commitment to create a more inclusive environment – in our workplaces, at the race track & in the stands," the post concludes, along with along with a graphic featuring the so-called "progress" pride flag and a message wishing...

  • Woke Disney Forces ESPN To Hold ‘Moment of Silence’ In Protest Of Florida’s Parental Rights’ Bill

    ESPN is officially a lost cause. The sports (?) network long ago leapt on the woke bandwagon with a vengeance. Although we occasionally hear murmurings from ESPN management that they want to return to focusing on sports at their sports network, their parent company, the wokest place on earth, Disney is having none of it. This time they are taking aim at Florida’s parental rights’ bill, a bill that is very popular despite media attempts to lie about its contents. To my mind, this bill doesn’t go far enough in setting the cut-off at third grade. Fourth grade (age 9-10)...

    When Lia Thomas “won” the NCAA swimming championship in Atlanta, it elicited the usual level of controversy, and the “boos” definitely outweighed the “yays.” The answer why is obvious: Thomas is a biological male who is competing against biological females, and every sane person still left in America knows why this is absurd.The New York Times reported:But Thomas’s triumph in Atlanta — indeed, her very presence at the swimming championships as a contender — came amid a far larger storm, particularly in statehouses and right-wing media, about sports participation by transgender girls and women. The issue, which on Thursday drew...

    New York City Mayor Eric Adams has called for Major League Baseball to achieve a proportional representation of female players on each team. "It is a disgrace that baseball hasn't accorded women a fair share of the roster slots," Adams exclaimed. "It took them more than half a century to allow blacks to play in their leagues. Now it's time they allowed women to play." The Mayor dismissed objections that women cannot compete on the same field as men. "This is simply not true," he insisted. "Right now, our city softball leagues have coed teams. With a few similar modifications...

    Tennis ace Daniil Medvedev and other Russian and Belarusian players may be asked to denounce President Vladimir Putin and his brutal invasion of Russia, if they want to play at Wimbledon this year. The government is in discussion with the All-England Club about the participation of players from the 'pariah states' in this summer's Championships. Sports Minister Nigel Huddleston has revealed that he is actively looking at the requirements that will be placed upon individual athletes in order for them to participate in international events.
