It’s all the same garbage.
This is no longer just an opinion. it’s the truth. I have proof.
I was recently at Newark Airport, waiting for my flight at the highly suggested hour two hours before it was due to depart, I had to buy expensive airport coffee as it was held for ransom by the Port Authority.
When finished, I tossed the paper cup into one of the large trash cans that have three holes in the top to indicate where to deposit the cans, paper, and plastic trash.
The holes were big enough to look deep inside. So I did. Trash can only contain one large bag. Despite the marked holes, all the trash ended up in the same bag.
It was all the same rubbish!
So was the Giants’ Monday night game in Kansas City – a game they would have won had it not been altered to a major but not-so-notorious two-kick kick; Two penalties against professionals for unsportsmanlike conduct that cannot be justified.
The first was early, on Colin Johnson after play was over at kickoff. The second was against Ellie Penny. With a score of 17-17, the Chiefs awarded 15 yards in a 20-17 Giants loss.
But try to find these important episodes in the TV footage or in most of the published autopsies of the game, and you will be wasting your time. Human errors between players, coaches and officials cannot be justified, while the unforgivable is ignored.
So another game in the billion-dollar industry is determined by two processes that can be prevented – unawareness of any and all circumstances except those that affect the player’s ego, to hell with everything and everyone else.
For my own recurrences: Why isn’t such behavior addressed and removed from the first day of practice? Why aren’t professional players encouraged – or ordered – to stay away, so that it doesn’t cost their team a yard in fines first, let alone an entire game?
Not that the media and marketing strategies are blameless. While they continue to promote “brag” as a game enhancer, no game has ever been won by bravado, but scores have been lost for it. swagger. It’s the soccer version of “Why are you at first base when you should be second?”
All the same garbage, 2: You have to take my word for it. Watching it on my own, I called him out loud, anyway: Michigan is doomed!
Saturday on Fox, Michigan took a 7-0 lead against Michigan State when the defense gathered for a group selfie at a premature narcissist for TV. Jos Johnson and Joel Clatt said nothing, in the television’s handling of such pimping, never-offending behavior, this time under strongman coach Jim Harbaugh.
The last time many of us experienced such an early collective celebration was when 49 players went up early 10 in the final quarter of Super Bowl LIV against The Chiefs. The 49ers gathered in the end zone to “Put Them” for “We Are The Greats / We Are The Champions!” TV picture
The next thing the Niners did as a team was lose the Super Bowl. The same thing happened on Saturday to Michigan.
All the same garbage, 3: Tom Thibodeau still needs to improve the Knicks’ basics, such as understanding conditions and first-team play.
On Monday at MSG, the Knicks were down 10 at home against the Raptors, with 9:15 left in the game after RJ Barrett scored an undisputed Grand Slam goal. Very beautiful play.
But instead of immediately rushing into defense or perhaps sliding quickly to harass an incoming passerby, Barrett stopped grabbing the camera and making a powerful gesture of self-aggrandizement.
All he had in mind, right now, was the same, and the Players Sports Reward Center had required his expectation as an unconditional reward.
At that moment, we needed Clyde Fraser, who has led many of the Knicks’ comebacks with stealing and backcourt defenses, to say something, anything. He never played that way, and only for good reasons. But he let her go.
Tony’s reaction to the Ruggs crash shows the NFL must mend itself
So, while the NFL’s Roger Goodell continues to offend the good guys with end-zone messages and helmeted messages that NFL fans must stop being racist and immediately examine their social failings, he and the league continue to ignore what they can’t fairest:
The NFL would be much better at fixing its systemic problems – pursuing right over wrong – before continuing its campaign that assumes its entire fan base is a bunch of hate-filled and unrepentant bigots.
Tuesday, 3:40 a.m. on a Las Vegas street, Raiders WR Henry Ruggs III, twice over the drunken limit and driving 156 mph with a passenger in his Corvette, allegedly injured and killed an innocent woman and her dog, in both cars. .
He was charged with at least two felonies, including a DUI that led to the death. A loaded pistol was reportedly found in the car.
Harrison owner Ravens LB was hit by what was said to be a “stray bullet” Sunday night in Cleveland.
Next came the latest to know all about the shining light of the Giants, WR Kadarius Toney, a college guy from the perennial football crime mill known as the University of Florida.
Tony tweeted, [all sic] “We’re Young, Everyone Makes Mistakes” in support of Ruggs. “You look at the situation like ‘this or that’ are not all… and you have a lot to say… he knows he made a mistake so don’t drag them for it…”
As for the woman who was burned to death, Tina Tentor, Tony didn’t bother tweeting her name.
Having a chance to take back his words, Tony doubled down: “Tough talk doesn’t bother me………gangsta.”
Want to buy PSLs for the Giants, Roger? They are good investments.
But the NFL and the NFLPA are very selective in their public attitudes. And they’re sticking with their social sensitivity campaign: The NFL’s behavioral problem isn’t internal, it’s external: it’s you.
More ridiculous stats on TNT
Do networks share stats-fed wagons among goons? Tuesday’s Heat Mavericks game on TNT featured Erik Spoelstra’s massive enlightenment, 5-1, in his best start “since 2019-20”. That was two seasons ago.
Reader Doug Heimowitz: “As I write this, at 9:45 p.m. the Fifth World Series from Atlanta is completing the third round. I really love baseball. But whatever that is, it’s not a baseball game.”
There is now an assumption that everyone has a bet on everything, and if you don’t, you lose. From Saturday’s ESPN College Scoreboard: “Oklahoma is up, 28-7 over TCU in the half. The streak was Oklahoma, minus 19. Oklahoma looks good.”
Michigan-Michigan State was so full of unintended and unnecessary reboots—at least four, including one that seemed to turn right into incorrect—that Fox grammar expert Mike Pereira was dumbfounded, unable to fathom the whole thing. But it’s all about getting it right!
The East Coast Boys Club awarded Rob Manfred’s annual “Good Guy Award” for allowing members to watch this year’s World Championships. The club represents boys from the east coast of Guam.
