Chickafication Of America: Girlie NFL Lineman Breaks His Silence, Says He Wants to Play Football AgainPosted: November 17, 2013 by AKA John Galt in America, Sports

Jonathan Martin spent nearly seven hours going into “great detail” with the NFL counsel investigating his claims of his harassment in the Miami Dolphins’ locker room. What came up in their talks, he isn’t saying for now.
He would say this: He still wants to play in the NFL.
Martin — in town because the league is trying to gather information about the bullying he says he was subjected to by teammate Richie Incognito — arrived at the Manhattan office building of special investigator Ted Wells on Friday morning, and didn’t emerge until shortly after sunset. Mobbed by media, he stood in the camera lights and read a statement.
“Although I went into great detail with Mr. Ted Wells and his team, I do not intend to discuss this matter publicly at this time,” Martin said. “This is the right way to handle the situation.
“Beyond that, I look forward to working through the process and resuming my career in the National Football League.”
After that, he and attorney David Cornwell went back into the building, later leaving via a side exit.
Incognito has acknowledged leaving a voicemail for Martin in April in which he used a racial slur, threatened to kill his teammate and threatened to slap Martin’s mother. Incognito has said he regrets the racist and profane language, but said it stemmed from a culture of locker-room “brotherhood,” not bullying.

ESPN Panelist Unloads on ‘War Anthem’ Before Games and NFL Buying Into ‘Mythology’ of Fallen Army SoldierPosted: November 6, 2013 by AKA John Galt in America, Sports

If you ask journalism Professor Kevin Blackistone what he thinks about the special and controversial Northwestern University football jerseys adorned with an American flag, he’ll tell you the country should nix the playing of a “war anthem” before sporting events and that the NFL has bought into the “mythology” of a fallen soldier that once played for the Arizona Cardinals.
How do we know? Because that’s exactly the rant he went on during a Wednesday afternoon segment of “Around the Horn” on ESPN.
The segment — which features a panel of sports commentators from around the country — was part of the show’s “Buy or Sell” section where guests affirm whether they would like to “buy” things they like or “sell” things they don’t. Host Tony Reali brought up the uniforms and asked each panelist if they would like to “buy” or “sell” them.
Blackstone didn’t hold back.
“I’m going to sell it too…,” Blackistone said, agreeing with a fellow panelist. “And if you sell this along with me you should also be selling the rest of the military symbolism embrace of sports: whether it’s the singing of a war anthem to open every game, whether it’s going to get a hotdog and being able to sign up for the Army at the same time, whether it’s the NFL’s embracing of the mythology of the Pat Tillman story. It’s has been going on in sports since the first National Anthem was played in the World Series back in 1917, and it’s time for people to back away.”

In recent weeks Redskins owner Dan Snyder has seemed to warm up to the idea of changing the Redskins name. So the report that a wealthy neighbor of his applied for a patent to lock down the name Washington Bravehearts is more than a little spicy.
According to TMZ, Aris Mardirossian, “a wealthy patent investor” who lives “a few doors down” from Dan Snyder, registered the name “WASHINGTON BRAVEHEARTS” on Oct. 17.
CBSSports.com has also learned Mardirossian registered the domain WashingtonBravehearts.com on October 18.
The patent license, per TMZ, is for “entertainment in the nature of football games.”
TMZ also obtained the LLC filings (.PDF) for Washington Brave Hearts, LLC.

A high school football coach in Weston, Fla., has been suspended for slapping his quarterback’s helmet in an attempt to “get him to compete” after a disappointing play. The interaction was caught on camera during the nationally televised ESPN High School Football Kickoff over the weekend.
In the video below, Weston (Fla.) Cypress Bay High head coach Mark Guandolo can be seen giving quarterback Lucas Tellefsen a stern talking to after he overthrew a pass on the previous play — and then the coach follows up with a firm slap to the player’s helmet.

It was a close encounter of the hoops kind.
Former Knicks player Baron Davis says he was “actually abducted by aliens.”
The basket-case baller told the hosts of “The Champs Podcast” that he crossed into his own personal twilight zone while driving “like two weeks ago.”
“I was, um, on my way from Vegas here to L.A.,” he said on the episode that aired Thursday.
“I’m a little tired and s— and I see this light and I think it’s a big-a– truck.

The St. Louis Cardinals organization removed the Christian symbols, including a cross, from the pitching mound this week.
It was offensive, to those who behead people and rape young girls.

Despite being encouraged by the federal government to help promote President Barack Obama’s health care law, an NFL spokesman on Friday said the league has “no plans” to work with the White House regarding the implementation of “Obamacare.”
The Department of Health and Human Services has reportedly reached out to the NFL — as well as the NBA and MLB — to help pitch the health care overhaul to its audience, particularly younger Americans. Earlier this week, HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius said the NFL and a “variety of sports affiliates” had been “enthusiastically engaged” with the administration regarding the idea.
On Friday, Brian McCarthy, vice president of communications at the NFL, said in an email that the league has responded to letters from members of Congress.
“We currently have no plans to engage in this area and have had no substantive contact with the administration about (Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act’s) implementation,” McCarthy wrote.
Sens. Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and John Cornyn (R-Texas) recently warned the NFL that teaming up with the Obama administration to help promote Obamacare would “risk damaging” its nonpartisan reputation.
