Another Nfl player arrested for domestic violence

Jonathan Dwyer, a running back for the Arizona Cardinals, has been arrested and subsequently deactivated by the team. According to an article in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, "Dwyer, 25, was booked into the Maricopa County Jail on one count of aggravated assault causing a fracture, one count aggravated assault involving a minor, two counts of criminal damage, one count of preventing the use of a phone in an emergency, and assault."

The arrests happened after two separate incidents in July at his home involving a 27-year-old female and an 18-month old child. From the sound of the accusations, Dwyer broke a bone of one of the victims.

It's time for the NFL owners to stand-up and give the players a warning of what type of behavior will result in what kind of punishment. Otherwise, the League is going to begin to lose its casual fan base leaving only its fanatics.

Another way to cut back on future incidents is to make players who are troublemakers in college (e.g. Jameis Winston) undraftable. This can only happen if the team owners begin to put character above money.

It looks like an enormous...

gay player starts off on the wrong foot in the nfl

Tagged:  

Remember when Michael Sam came out before the NFL draft as being gay and said he just wanted to be treated like every other player--well, not so much.

It comes to find out the Sam had a deal with Oprah Winfrey's OWN television network to follow him through the process of trying to make the St. Louis Rams.

After other players (LaVar Arrington's comments are linked later in this post) and sports reporters questioned whether Sam wanted to be a player or a celebrity, it was announced on Friday that his documentary was being "postponed" by OWN. Not the brightest way to start your quest to play in the NFL.

Don't Michael Sam's teammates have rights too?

I'm an avid sports radio listener and I don't think I can take too many more days of the topic of conversation focusing on the gay NFL draftee Michael Sam. He was drafted by a team that probably has the strongest defensive line in the league--so Sam's best opportunities for making the final Rams roster are probably on special teams or the practice squad. Obviously, it's strictly his sexual preference that has put him in the spotlight.

My question is--who's looking out for Sam's teammates? As a gay male, Sam is attracted to men--not necessarily just gay men. I'm not suggesting that he's some perverted stalker, simply that human nature doesn't limit us to fancying only those who might be interested in us. The theme of at least 50 percent of Jennifer Aniston movies have been her falling in love with a gay guy (of course, not that I've watched any of those movies)!

Sam's teammates might have a legitimate concern that their workplace--that includes a communal locker room and shower facility--presents an uncomfortable environment for them. My attorney friend who specializes in workplace lawsuits tells me that the Sam situation poses a delicate legal matter none the least of which is that the NFL is stifling their player employees' ability to speak out about the uneasy workplace condition that this might be creating. My friend likens this to the ongoing litigation concerning at what point in the transformation process is it acceptable for a transgender person to begin using the workplace restroom designated for their target gender?

Racist, Bigoted And Violent Tiger Outfielder-->Sitting In Jail, re: Hate Crimes!

No surprise here(except to donwert), Outfielder Delmon Young(Det. Tigers) sitting in NYC jail. He has a history of serious violent outbursts, as does his brother Dimitri Young. He'll get a pass, probably when Jesse Jackson("the Hymies in Hymie-Town)throws his anti-semetic bullshit into the mix.

LSU #1, Oklahoma State #2: Final Regular Season American Heartland Bar and Grill College Football Top 30

Seriously? LSU versus Alabama? Just when you think the BCS couldn't stoop any lower, Alabama, a team who's kicker couldn't make a field goal at home, gets a shot at the BCS title (I refuse to call it the national title) while Big 12 Champion Oklahoma State doesn't? And Oklahoma State's lone loss was a game that never should have been played against Iowa State. The game was played on the same day that the OSU women's basketball coach was killed in a plane crash and EVERY OTHER Cowboy sporting activity was cancelled.

Really?

LSU #1, Alabama #2, Houston jumps to #3: American Heartland Bar and Grill College Football Top 30

Overranked:
Virginia Tech. (BCS - 5)
-Signature win against 8-4 Virginia. 20 point loss to Clemson. Eeked out 14-10 win against Duke.

Arkansas (BCS- 8)
-should never have been ranked in the top 10 in the first place. Non-conference schedule stinks. Why are they still in top 10?

Oregon (BCS- 9)
-It's a good thing USC isn't eligible for the Pac12 this year because they may be the best team in the league right now. Oregon's non-conference schedule, LSU withstanding, wasn't the greatest (2-9 Missouri State??).

Underranked:
Houston. (BCS- 6)

American Heartland Bar and Grill College Football Top 30- Week 7

Well, well, well...the nightmare scenario for the BCS is beginning to play itself out. We are staring down the real possibility that the title game couldl be two SEC teams- LSU and Alabama.

Oregon (9-2) lost to USC but still holds the head to head tiebreaker over Stanford (10-1) in the PAC-12 North. If Oregon defeats Oregon State, Stanford is locked out of the PAC-12 title game and theoretically out of the national championship game.

The Big 10 is out of the picture.

Argument For a College Football Tournament

Right now, the current BCS system is nothing more a beauty pageant. A beauty pageant that's prejudiced against non-BCS schools. Why else would Arkansas, a team that's played a terrible non-conference schedule, be ranked ahead of Houston? Or Boise State?

LSU, Oklahoma State, and Oklahoma Maintain 1-2-3 Rankings: Week 6 American Heartland Bar and Grill College Football Rankings

The top four went unscathed over the weekend. But that can't be said about Stanford, Boise State, and Penn State.

How far up the rankings will Oregon jump after defeating previously unbeaten Stanford?

How for down the rankings will Boise State fall after another missed field goal ends their BCS title hopes?

And with the defeat of Stanford and Boise there is now only three unbeaten teams left: LSU, Oklahoma State, and Houston. Can Houston move past Boise State towards the top 5?
