Minnesota Gopher football gets raw deal

The Gopher football players are getting screwed.

Aside from having no charges filed against them because there was a lack of evidence, there's this:

During an 8-second clip, the woman “appears lucid, alert, somewhat playful and fully conscious; she does not appear to be objecting to anything at this time,” Wente wrote in his report. After viewing two additional videos, he wrote “the sexual contact appears entirely consensual.”

In no way am I a proponent of sexual abuse, but this girl was a whore for a night, and then couldn't take the shit-talking that came her way for being one, and tried to ruin these young men. Sad.

And on top of that, the players are facing the current suspension, and possible expulsion from the University of Minnesota because the school has a separate Ethics and Codes committee that apparently supercedes our own judicial system.

In the words of the late, great, Hall of Famer, Vince Lombardi, "What the hell is going on out there!"

NFL hates these 8

Another game? Another game! 

It's like Chris Rock screaming, "Another kid!" in his Never Scared stand-up when talking about Michael Jackson.

But that's how it feels with the NFL adding another London game. Another game? 

Why?

It's obvious enough, with the insistence of the Thursday Night games, that the NFL truly believes that you will watch anything (and that they are as greedy as The Scrooge).

But adding another game to the London slate just proves the NFL is all about the money grab (duh), they don't care about the players (because nobody wants to go to London), and are stubborn as hell in trying to get the rest of the world to like a sport they could give a shit about.

And 4 teams (Jaguars, Browns, Rams, and Dolphins) get screwed out of a home game on top of it. The other 4 (Ravens, Cardinals, Saints, and Vikings), just have to London, which sucks in itself, because it's not like going to Honolulu for the Pro Bowl (Orlando now). London weather sucks, and again, nobody wants to go there. 

And take a look at the teams going to London. How obvious is it that the NFL sends the bottom-feeders, knowing full well it doesn't matter who plays over there, because the game will be a sellout either way?

If the NFL really wanted to build its product globally, wouldn't you think the Cowboys or the Patriots would be sent packing to London? But we all know Bill Belichek would never agree to that, so the NFL sends the teams it knows won't put up a stink, even if the teams internally aren't thrilled about it.

Like I said on my radio show Sunday, nobody in London cares about American football. Neither does the rest of the world, for that fact, but we'll stick to London here.

Londoners go to the game because it's a fun thing to do on that day. They pack Wembley Stadium, get hammered, and watch a product they don't fully understand. They don't go because they love football. 

The Vikings [this year] continually try to run the football up the middle on 3rd or 4th & 1, and always get stopped. Yet they still try the same method, over and over.

The NFL wants to get to 400 million viewers, and they try and try by continually showing games in the UK, Mexico City, etc. 

I'm not sure how to get to the 400 million, but I do know that nobody outside of North America gives a shit about football, and that's ok. So, like the Vikings, the NFL should just stop trying.
