This kind of thing is rampant in American sports. These people had the chance of a lifetime and instead of buckling down and flying right, they prove that they are simply thugs. This is quickly becoming the norm. The lucky ones move on to the Pro's and make millions of dollars a year. The Pro's are a non-profit organization that makes billions of dollars a year, pay themselves tens of millions a year. They in no way deserve non profit status. Especially since the entire scheme we call the Big Leagues is rife with thugs like these that simply didn't get caught. Instead of giving excess money that they bring in yearly, they simply pay themselves more. Family friendly games that used to be about bonding with family have now become nearly impossible to afford to attend. A weeks pay and more just to attend a game is unreachable for a typical family. Meanwhile the leaders and players of these leagues pay cash for 10 million dollar homes, 200k cars which they own 5 of. I am really sick of seeing these people being idolized. They are nothing but gougers and thugs and by no stretch of the imagination do they deserve non-profit status. Sure, there are a few that give back to the community, they are however far and few between. If the NFL makes 9 billion dollars a year and gives 200 million a year to charity, that does not equate to non-profit status. If a players career is only 8 years long it does not mean that he needs 10 million a year because of it. We see a huge number of them going broke. The average American does not make 2 million dollars in their lifetime. There is no excuse for going broke when you make 10 million a year. They simply blow it, smoke it, sniff it, drink it, or buy crap they don't need while there are people literally living on the streets.
Yes, I know these are college players. They are essentially the same people in the pro's.

I care so much because billions of dollars are wasted on them. They do not deserve to be a non-profit. They make huge profits and pay no tax. The players pay tax, the league does not. They just keep raising the price of a ticket to the point that families can not afford to go to a game. It used to be an American passtime. Now it is simply a money grabbing scheme that gives nearly nothing back to the community. Non-profit my ass!.

As i said in the post. I know these are college players. That is where the pro's get their players. The entire system is rife with thugs who once they get rich give nothing but profits to their local bentley dealer and hot spot clubs.

The National Football League is an unincorporated nonprofit 501(c)(6) association, meaning its league office is not subject to income tax because it does not make a profit. In contrast, each individual team makes a is subject to tax because they make a profit.[19] The NFL considers itself a trade association made up of and financed by its 32 member teams
wow this kind of blew me away so the NFL is a non profit??!!?!?? but the teams them selves are not......how did they get this status and why?

Remember back in the 1990's when the WWF changed their name to the NWO?

Ever wonder WHY?


There is yet another conspiracy going on right under the sheeps nose. I'm talking about the professional sports conspiracy. Let me be blunt: Every professional sports team is rigged and controlled to determine a set outcome. Professional sports and wraslin have EVERYTHING in common. NFL, NASCAR, NHL, NBA, etc... are ALL RIGGED.

And every person that watches professional sports is a god forsaken SHEEP of the 34 th degree. What's even scarier is how the sheeple get EMOTIONAL over these BALL-GAMES. They know all the stats of their teams dating back to the 2800's... they dress up in their team colors... they argue about who is the best... and they watch these games OBSESSIVELY on the one-eyes jew.

But that's not the worst part. The most sickening example of the weakness of the feeble mind of the sheep is simply how they bee-lie-ve professional sports are REAL.

They actually believe these ball games are REAL! So you think it is a coincidence that the SAME few teams (NY, NEW ENGLAND etc...) always WIN year after year? But the sheep exclaim 'they have the best players'. Right? Wrong. They have the best money. And money will naturally determine who will perform best. To deny this would be to deny the great power of the benevolency.

www.youtube.com...



The sad illusion among the sheeple is that life is 'FAIR'. In other words, The sad hope hope that a weak team can defeat a strong team. This is exactly what keeps the masses glued to the TV during every ball game. The viewer fan waiting for his 'fair share' of the pie to finally come his way. So how do you explain 'rich teams' that get all the money and thus the best players?

While many believe that some teams just happen to have more money that others, the fact is that EVERY team budget is controlled at the top by one omnipotent and unseen force. But the point remains that there always must be a handful of 'boggie man bad-guy' teams that the sheep fans of other teams will then hope to be defeated.

Collegiate sports is no longer a set of games between unpaid, amateur athletes,.

The sports networks/media... ESPN being the most invasive, have basically become owners of the college football bowl system and they (along with all those who control media rankings) have fought tooth and nail against losing that power.

The schools have responded in kind, by making sports more and more like professional grade selection.

Eliminate the media ranking system, install a playoff structure that intertwines with the classic bowl concept... it it might be saved.

But... I won't be holding my breath.

American past time? Come on... All it ever was and will be is a manipulation tool to control the masses.
Adults did not care about sports before the TV, they wear to busy. They wear kids games.


I dont understand why people watch sports. You chose a team, (most likly the one closest to you) you dont even know the people on the team. People get emotional when their team loses. If people focused those emotions towards the Govt something might get done.

I saw something about soccer games being rigged for the last 20 years or so too. That is in Europe. They say America is not effected. I seriously doubt that. In effect, proffessional sports is just a money grabbing scheme. People idolize the players/coach's and owners, I have boycotted them for the last 20 years.

Not so. It used to be a family passtime. Going to the games was a fun, bonding experience that gave lifetime memories for many families.

No. Mainly because that never happened. The NWO was a stable in WCW in the late 90s. WWF changed their name to WWE after a legal battle with the World Wildlife Fund.

But I'm just a toothless, uneducated hillbilly. What do I know?

Oh my god. Seriously??
It is an issue of supply and demand, people. Jesus! It is a sport that has been played over 100 years! Sports are a natural extension of our evolutionary desire to compete. Why? Because they hone skills that can be used in battle if need be.
A tool to control the masses??? HAHA

This enraged energy would be much better put to use focusing on energy corporations, for starters.
Wanna know why athletes are paid so much? Because we buy their damn jerseys. That's why. Stop complaining.

See my signature.
GO HOGS!!!

ETA: GOOD! Alabama SUCKS!

Just a couple of things ..

1st. Echo3Foxtrot is 100% correct about WCW, NWO and WWE/F..

2nd. Good for 'bama! One of the proudest of another human being I've been recently is of a football coach. Where I hunt the closest is a tiny (one stoplight) little town in GA. Yet, they have been state champs in highschool football a couple of times. To say highschool football is big there would be a gross understatement. Anyway, I was talking to the coach there last year. He confided in me they would not be state champs this year. He'd just cut 3 of his star players due to their off-field behavior.

I have no problem with sports. I played nearly every sport in my youth. The pro's then were not paid millions. We could take the entire family to a game without saving for 3 months to do so. It has turned into a money grabbing monster that in no way deserves non-profit status.

Oh, I agree on the point about NPO status. But the story in question here is about the University of Alabama and Nick Satan.
To that point, I think this story is hilarious. It shows the type of personality "Saint Nick" recruits. ... thugs. I am still waiting for Bama to be investigated for running a bounty program and the use of illegal growth hormones.

Awful lot of smoke around that program lately...
