Unpatriotic Kneel Down/Fist Up

Normally, I try to keep my blogs biased free, but this next article is like something you’d find in the Opinion section of a newspaper. Again, this is my opinion, and you don’t necessarily have to agree with it, though I’m sure it’s going to make some people mad. On to the juicy stuff now. Collin Kaepernick, in my opinion, has acted really low as of late. Yeah, you have a right to protest, but during the National Anthem? That’s pure outrageous and plain disrespectful to everyone who has ever fought to defend our freedom and country. Now not only Kaepernick is protesting during the National Anthem, but players from other NFL teams (Rams, Dolphins, and  Broncos) are showing protest as well…Niner’s DB Eric Reid and Broncos’ LB Brandon Marshall, and Dolphins’ RB Arian Foster are just to name a few. Now, some players aren’t just kneeling, but putting their fists in the air instead of their hand over their heart.  In my other opinion, if these players don’t like standing during the Anthem, then they can move to Canada and play for the CFL. Or let’s get these players together and let former and current military veterans beat the crap out of them for showing so much disrespect to not only them but the country we live in, and which they fought for. From now on, these players should just shut their mouths and put their hands over their hearts, and get along with life. I also have 2 shoutouts; my first shoutout is to former Alabama DL Quinton Dial. Dial helped military members hold the flag during last night’s National Anthem…while Eric Reid and Kaepernick kneeled. I also give a shout out to everyone of the Dallas Cowboys sideline the other night as none of their players showed any signs of protest. In conclusion, yeah, you might have a first amendment right to protest; however, it should not be done during an important moment such as the National Anthem. Thank you for the read, and remember this is my opinion only; you may agree to disagree. I, however, will always stand by my opinion.

Breaking News: Bears Release Fmr 49ers DE AfterArrested for Domestic Violence/Childhood Endangerment Charges

Just out of NFL Network, the Chicago Bears have officially released former 49ers DE Ray McDonald following an arrest on misdemeanor domestic violence/Childhood endangerment chargers. As the story on NFL.com states, “According to the police report, officers were dispatched at 3:48 a.m. to a disturbance at McDonald’s Santa Clara residence where they learned McDonald ‘physically assaulted the victim while she was holding a baby.’ McDonald left the residence before police arrived. He was later located and arrested in San Jose.” This isn’t his first run in with the law, however, in August (2014) McDonald was arrested for felony domestic violence, but was not charged and played in the entire season last year, and he also  was arrested for suspicion of DUI in 2010. McDonald was released in December by the 49ers after he was an alleged suspect in a sexual assault investigation. The Bears signed McDonald to a $1.5 million non-guaranteed contract on March 24. Chicago GM Ryan Pace issued a statement earlier on the release of McDonald: “We believe in second chances, but when we signed Ray we were very clear what our expectations were if he was to remain a Bear. He was not able to meet the standard and the decision was made to release him.” In his 4 seasons in the NFL, McDonald had 112 tackles with 14.5 sacks.

Jim Harbaugh and Staff Face 4 NCAA Recruiting Violations

Before Jim Harbaugh can coach a game at his alma mater, he faces 4 minor recruiting violations. It is reported that of the 4 violations, Harbaugh is reported of receiving 2 of them. The violations are classified as secondary/level III which means that the NCAA doesn’t normally take part in dealing with them; instead, the University of Michigan will handle it through the school’s compliance department and educate the coach and his staff. In one of the violations, Harboaugh and 2 of his staff let a recruit sit with them in premium seating at a hockey game. Next, Harbaugh donated a signed jersey and helmet to a school auction without it being reviewed. In another violation, a coach spoke publicly about an incoming transfer. And the last violation involved sending impermissible recruiting materials to a recruit electronically. After a disappointing season with the 49ers, Harbaugh signed a 7yr, up to $38.1 Million contract with Michigan.
