The NFL’s Rigged High Stakes Game

Posted in Football, NFL, Sports, St. Louis Rams with tags , , , , , , , , , , on May 18, 2016 by thelegendkil

Viva-Las-Vegas@thelegendkil

ST. LOUIS, MO

Well, well, well look what fell into the well. The latest NFL rumor about the possibility the Oakland Raiders moving to Las Vegas has grown some legs. Now Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has come out and said that he wants the Raiders in Vegas. So you already know what that means. That means that not only this rumor has legs, it appears to be walking upright towards the 702 area code. Wow it was only just four months ago before the curtain was pulled down and the St.Louis Rams went back home, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell said,”I want to keep our franchises in their current markets.”

First off that was a blatant lie by the commish, but I’m sure that wasn’t the only fib that has eased across his lips. Just for example, his stating that all three stadium proposals were not suffice to keep teams in current markets 48 hours before the decision was announced back in January. Then he followed that quip in the first week February which I might have found funny however, the quip was delivered by a guy whose credibility is below sea level. “If Al Davis was alive today, he would slap the league,” said Goodell. Honestly the NFL hasn’t been slapped enough. This cluster of madness happened on his watch makes him an easy target for angry fans but, he’s insulated by a handsome salary and greedy lust for money by owners that pay him to basically take all the public abuse and outrage.

Which brings me back to his boss and the real commissioner of the NFL, Jerry Jones. He didn’t want the Raiders in Los Angeles, he sure as hell didn’t want them in San Antonio, Texas. And St. Louis was never an option. If we didn’t learn anything from this stadium kenundrum its that what Jerry wants he gets. It was his power his influence that was the key factor in the Rams going back to Los Angeles. The St. Louis Task Force didn’t stand a chance in this rigged game. Or just go back when the NFL had realignment over a decade ago. The New Orleans Saints, Carolina Panthers, and Atlanta Falcons were moved to the NFC South. And that makes perfect geographical sense but, when it came to the Cowboys they stayed in the NFC East. Why? Cash money homie. The Cowboys staying in the NFC East blatantly spits in the eye of geographical realignment. Jones wasn’t having none of that. He got his way, notice how all the other professional teams that play in Dallas are either in the West or Southwest division?

Now back to this talk about the Raiders playing footsies with Sin City, the one caveat to this is Jones want Raiders owner Mark Davis to sell the team. Jones wants new ownership in Las Vegas. And he’s not concerned about the gambling and all the other fun that’s available in a city that’s chalked full of tourist and transplants from other parts of the United States. Davis who gained control of the franchise after his father passed in 2011 has refused to sell the Raiders. I recently talked with sports talk show host Melissa Ferris from GirlChatSports.com on a recent podcast and she had this to say; “I would go to a game, I would go to many games to watch what teams would come. Having a professional sports team here is like you never hear that.” It’s sounds more strong to be happening this year than in previous years, our Mayor Carolyn Goodman she’s behind it 100 percent,” said Ferris.

moneyWhat about the price tag? The Raiders would put up 500 million, Sands Corporation 150 million, taxpayers 750 million and the NFL will contribute 200 million. Only 750 million in taxpayer dollars, again we are witnessing the NFL looking to solicit taxpayer dollars from people that are for the most part struggling financially. I saw a familiar line that went that the NFL is not going to leave free money on the table. Hell they already did it once leaving 400 million on the table in St.Louis. Whose to say it won’t happen again? And the for those that still wonder why the NFL didn’t just expand, the owners didn’t want to share the revenue. Something they will never admit, but they don’t have too. The NFL will expand or allow teams to move, when Jerry Jones says so.

Ranting-Homer

Happy New Year one and all, it’s time for the 1st rant of 2015…

  1. Stuart Scott is Mr. SportsCenter, I can care less what you think. Not being biased either.
  2. Pau Gasol is a blessing to Chicago. Thank you Jim Buss.
  3. Jimmy Butler is not only an All-Star, he’s playing like an MVP.
  4. Stephen Curry is amazing…maybe he should be the MVP.
  5. I dislike Steve Kerr still; that Warriors team will forever be Mark Jackson’s.
  6. The Atlanta Hawks will not go to the Eastern Conference Finals this season. I don’t give a damn how good they’re doing right now.
  7. Stan Kroenke gave the NFL the finger and was straight gangster with it.
  8. The Cleveland Cavaliers added two cancers to the team after trading one of them (Dion Waiters traded, received J.R. Smith and Iman Shumpert)
  9. There’s no need for a committee for the College Football Playoff, just call it the BCS College Football Playoff and let the computers decide.
  10. Oregon will win the national championship; screw you Buckeye fans.
  11. I’m cheering for the Cowboys this weekend…just like you…I can’t believe it either.
  12. I’m not watching hockey until March/April…that’s when the real fun begins just like the NBA.
  13. I feel sorry for Marvin Lewis and Jim Caldwell…only of these men will get the short end of the stick.
  14. So when does baseball season start?
  15. Dirk Nowitzki is better than Larry Bird. (Became 7th all-time leading scorer in NBA history)
  16. “BOOYAH!”
  17. “Cool as the other side of the pillow.”
  18. “I ain’t gone say nothing, but that ain’t right.”
  19. Rich Eisen is awesome. Never forget your colleague and friend. Classy move.
  20. Shoutout to every sports team that honored Stuart Scott.

MORE TO COME…I THINK. STAY TUNED.

Dallas Should Be Super Bowl Champions

Posted in Football, NFL, Sports with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 5, 2015 by A-Train
dal_u_tromo01_288v

2015 Pro Bowler Tony Romo

That title seems like a stretch, doesn’t it?

Well it shouldn’t be…at all.

As much as I dislike that team and their fans, “America’s Team” (as it was proclaimed long ago) is back in the saddle to make that championship run to sit on the NFL’s top mountain.

This team has the makings of a championship-caliber football team.

You heard that correctly. Me, the one that dislikes the Cowboys, believes this team can win it all.

It has a good (although sometimes good has been a stretch for him), a running back (who led the league in rushing and touchdowns), and a wide receiver (who is probably the best receiver in the NFL). In addition…an All-Pro tight end and by far one of the best offensive lines in not just the conference, but the entire league. Not to mention, a defense who ranked in the Top 15 in defense this season and won every road game they played in (4-4 home record during regular season) seems like a clear indicator that this team is headed back towards their “destiny for greatness.” I DON’T LIKE IT! But I have to deal with it. It’s just sports.

NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray

Speaking of it’s just sports, this post wouldn’t have been done if it wasn’t for the “controversial” 24-20 win against the Detroit Lions in the NFC Wild Card game on Sunday. Lots of factors played into the game especially the poor decision making of one Jim Caldwell, who is about every bit as bad with that as Marvin Lewis is with the Bengals. Let’s not forget how Jerry Jones used his wallet to overcome that bad pass interference call. BUT when the game was on the line, Caldwell choked and his quarterback choked. That’s what makes me dislike Matthew Stafford. In games I needed him for fantasy, he choked.

Sorry, getting beside myself because the topic is about Dallas…so let me stick to the topic at hand, ok?

Dallas has a good road ahead of them, yet probably their biggest challenge will come from the NFC North champs, the Green Bay Packers. I don’t like them either. Thanks two of my family members who constantly think they are the absolute best. But hey, as a fan you’re supposed to think that way. But the Cowboys have their undefeated regular season mark to take with them on to Lambeau. If they get past Green Bay, they are going to the Super Bowl. WELL HOW IS THAT, TRAIN? THEY HAVE ANOTHER GAME LEFT AFTERWARDS. Truth. But let me help you understand because (whispers) it’s all a setup.

dal_a_dez1_cr_400x600

“The best receiver in the NFL,” Dez Bryant

The Carolina/Seattle game will more than likely goes Seattle’s way (on paper). I understand the term “Any Given Sunday” real well yet more than likely they will be outmatched. Now if Carolina steps up from their 27-16 win against Arizona, they could put the Seahawks on the ropes. But I just don’t see that happening in this matchup. Back to why Dallas will go to the Super Bowl is this…Seattle will likely be the winner between them and Carolina which sets up a rematch back with Dallas back in Week 6, which the Cowboys won by a touchdown IN Seattle. Dallas won’t be afraid of Seattle because they believe they can be them in their own house. HOWEVER, this will be the 2nd time in Romo’s career that he will face Seattle at Qwest Field. The last time he played them (which was back in 2006), led to this, and the final was this. But THAT was a different Romo then compared to now…at least some people think that…but however, this team should not be able to disappoint. This NFL fan hopes they choke again.

But yet this 2014 edition of the Cowboys team is eerily similar to the Dallas team back in 1992. You can click this link and see what I mean.

If they get the win in Lambeau, get the people ready for a party in Glendale at Super Bowl XLIX (49) and a date with the New England Patriots and beating down Tom Brady.

Lord, I hope that doesn’t happen, but if it does, I’m going to a Super Bowl party…for just the food/drink.

Ranting-Homer

 

It’s not really the 20th edition of the “Rant,” I’ve done a lot of special rants for this blog as well. So there is more but this is my regular rant and I’ve done 20 of them. May not mean much to you but it means something to me. I’ve been able to break out and do this. So ladies and gentlemen…the 20th…A-TRAIN RANT!

  1. We may have seen the last of Stephen A. Smith on ESPN. It’s a shame too. Plus it goes to show you that we can’t speak our minds.
  2. The NFL will only protect the stars…if a bench player done this, he’s gone automatically.
  3. Women in media are not happy with the NFL.
  4. With that previous statement, Roger Goodell is officially the worst commissioner in sports.
  5. As a Bulls fan, I’m scared for Derrick Rose. Plus he needs to shut up and just play basketball.
  6. The Cardinals, Tigers and Athletics are the winners of the July 31st trade deadline.
  7. Dustin Johnson needs help.
  8. The NFL season is just around the corner.
  9. Shoutout to Aeneas Williams, well deserved member of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Also to the other inductees going in on Saturday.
  10. Who do you get when they holdout, get no new deal, return to camp and still not get a new deal: Marshawn Lynch. (UPDATE: He finally got a bump in pay)
  11. This is why people don’t watch baseball…the game is watered down.
  12. Dallas Cowboys continue to be the laughingstock of the NFL.
  13. Brady Quinn knows when to say, “I’m done.” Tim Tebow does not.
  14. Damn shame there will not be an EA college football game this season.
  15. The San Antonio Spurs will be back in the Finals next season.
