Ray Lewis tells Kaepernick to stop getting “caught up in some of this nonsense…”

If you missed it Monday, Shannon Sharpe verbally assassinated Ray Lewis debating the Ravens handling the Colin Kaepernick on FS-1’s ‘Skip and Shannon Undisputed’.

Ray Lewis must think we are all fools, as he tries to convince Shannon, Skip Bayless, and anyone else who will listen that the Ravens not bringing in Kaepernick is more than just his activism.

After being slammed on social media Ray attempted to clean it up with the following video via Twitter.

WTH…

According to Lewis, Kaepernick should be quiet and just play football. Is that the kind of advice Lewis would have given to Jim Brown, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Bill Russell and Muhammad Ali? And when Lewis refers to Kaepernick being “caught up in some of this nonsense” is he calling police brutality and unfairness in the criminal justice system nonsense?

At this point Lewis is tripping over himself, trying to clean up his ridiculous take on this matter. He says he doesn’t know Kaepernick, but this is a brotherhood. If that’s the case contact Kaep, stop going on TV and posting videos about Kaep being in your prayers.

Come on Ray, do better!

Mike Vick’s “Clean-Cut” Comment is Way Off-Base…

Mike Vick knows what it is to be a pariah, and his recent comments while on FS1’s ‘Speak For Yourself’ about Colin Kaepernick were well-intentioned…

“First thing we’ve got to get Colin to do is cut his hair,”

“Listen, I’m not up here to try to be politically correct. Even if he puts cornrows in there, I don’t think he should represent himself in that way in terms of just the hairstyle. Just go clean-cut. You know, why not? You’re already dealing with a lot of controversy surrounding this issue. The most important thing that he needs to do is just try to be presentable.”

“I just think perception and image is everything. This is not the Colin Kaepernick that we’ve known since he entered the National Football League,”

“I’m just going off my personal experiences. Listen, I love the guy to death. But I want him to also succeed on and off the field. This has to be a start for him.”

The problem is that Vick is using his experience as a false equivalent to what is going on with Kaepernick. Vick was a convict, Kaepernick has not broken any laws or served any time. Vick was trying to not only get back into football, he also needed money to pay off debts. The only thing Kaepernick is guilty of is exercising his right to protest and have an afro.

As Vick mentions he is going off his own “personal experiences” when he almost lost everything after serving time for his role in a dog fighting ring. When Vick was released from jail he had to rebuild his image and he ditched his signature cornrolls for a clean-cut look, and that’s fine, but you cannot compare the 2 situations.

Kudos to Eric Davis (former NFL player) for stepping up and challenging Vick in saying that he doesn’t believe Kaepernick cutting his hair will change anything.

In the meantime Kaepernick Tweeted the following

Not sure if Vick will be able to fully grasp what Kaepernick is trying to say here.

WTH Sammy Sosa!

When Sammy Sosa left baseball in 2007 he was a brown-skin kat from the Dominican Republic who hit 609 homers during his career.

And now Sosa is doing interviews and his skin severely bleached and it’s not a good look at all.

Sosa has stated the following,

“It’s a bleaching cream that I apply before going to bed and whitens my skin some,” Sosa said on Univision’s “Primer Impacto” program. “It’s a cream that I have, that I use to soften [my skin], but has bleached me some. I’m not a racist, I live my life happily.

“What happened was that I had been using the cream for a long time and that, combined with the bright TV lights, made my face look whiter than it really is. I don’t think I look like Michael Jackson.”

Ummmm, yeah Sosa, MJ never looked as bad as you do right now. I don’t know what Sammy can do to help himself but at this point you know you losing when Rachel Dolezal is blacker than you!

Conor McGregor RELAX with all the “Boy” stuff

I’m cool with Conor McGregor and all of shit talking to sell this Mayweather vs McGregor fight, but he needs to RELAX with referring to Floyd Mayweather Jr as a “Boy”.

Plain and Simple!

Of course Conor being Conor he’s not gonna allow anyone to tell him what to do used the “Dance for me boy…” again during the 2nd event in Toronto.

SMH…

There’s no discussion, and let me be clear, I am not calling McGregor a racist or anything. It’s just not a good look for a White man to refer to a Black man as a boy. Everything else is open season if he wants to talk about Mayweather’s tax problems, serving time, and even his ability to read. Whatever you need to hype this fight for August 26th, just stay away from “Dance for me boy, dance…”

Man up Wilmer Flores!

The 2017 season for the New York Mets has been a struggle due to injuries and inconsistencies with their pitching.

And after taking a beating in the first 3 games against the Los Angeles Dodgers, the Mets are about to officially be sellers at the trading deadline. With the season on the brink of being lost you would think players like Wilmer Flores would be focus on trying to show management that he should be in their future plans.

Instead Flores is worried about what Yasiel Puig is doing after Puig cracked a 3-run homer and admired his work.

Instead of being upset with his own play (currently slumping with something like 4 hits in his last 30 at-bats) and the play of his team. Flores decided he had to let Puig know he wasn’t happy as Puig made his way around the bases.

“I don’t think he knows what having respect for the game is,”

“We’re playing horrible right now. We don’t need his [behavior]. He disrespected us.” – Wilmer Flores

Seriously Flores?!?

If you don’t like the other team showing you up, how about you play better?

Flores needs to not be so sensitive, but hey what else should I expect from a guy who cried on the field in 2015 because he thought he was traded. Man up Wilmer, stop watching other players being an impact on the game and start being an impact for the Mets!

Kristaps Porzingis STILL Needs Carmelo Anthony….

Kristaps Porzingis STILL needs Carmelo Anthony

Yup, I said it, and have always believed it and Porzingis aka “The Unicorn” believes it as well.

“I think it would make life harder for me on the court (if Anthony was traded),” Porzingis told the Daily News. “He makes stuff easier for me.”

When KP and the Knicks defeated the NJ Nets Wednesday night, Knicks’ fans who have booed Melo at MSG finally saw their vision come true; KP leading the Knicks without Melo (on the bench for the 4th quarter).

As a Knicks fan I am always happy when the Knicks win, but we have to be realistic. KP is 0-8 when Melo doesn’t play, and I realize it’s a small sample size but still relevant. KP will be a very good and possibly a great player but he still has a lot to learn and prove in the NBA.

“There’s still a lot more things I want to learn from Melo,” Porzingis told The News. “So I would love to have him around for a long time. I always love playing with Melo.”

So Knicks fans, while I agree that it maybe time for Melo to be traded, at the same time we have to be careful of a couple of things. We can’t afford to get rid of Melo and get trash in return, and the organization needs a plan moving forward to develop KP and have an identity for the Knicks.

One last thing… Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but someday Knicks fans will miss Melo when he is gone!

MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred on Cleveland Indians Chief Wahoo Logo

While announcing the 2019 MLB All-Star game and festivities will be hosted by the Cleveland Indians; MLB Commissioner Rob Manfred took the opportunity to talk about the Indians problematic logo.

indians

“I’m not going to speculate about what I want the end of the process to be,”

“I think that (Indians owner Paul Dolan) has been fantastic about engaging, including a conversation this morning with Paul and (minority investor) John Sherman. I want those conversations to continue, and I think we’ll produce a result that will be good for the Indians and good for baseball. What exactly that is, I don’t want to speculate right now.” – Rob Manfred

It may not be a whole lot, in three sentences Manfred has done more than NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has done in the last couple of years in addressing the Washington Redskins name and logo.

Since 2014 the Indians have scaled back the use of the Chief Wahoo logo, but there is more work to be done. As seen in this past World Series against the Chicago Cubs, Chief Wahoo was prevalent.

indians-chief-wahoo-fans

You may not be able to stop fans from sporting Chief Wahoo but there’s hope that the Indians uniform and marketing staff will completely phase out the use of the logo by the 2019 mid-summer classic.

And maybe Manfred’s comments will encourage a reporter to ask Goodell about Washington’s name and logo during the State of the NFL address this week.
