Everyone’s been buzzing about this video from a Fitchburg State-Nichols College basketball game, where FSU’s star player Kewan Platt straight up knocks Nichols guard Nate Tanaglia out after Tanaglia released a three point dagger to ice the game for Nichols.
Oh yea, he’ll fit right in in Fitchburg.
Just to review, Kewan’s team was down 10 when he jacked up a 3 pointer. After air-balling it because he shot it off balanced he immediately turned to the ref to start whining about the lack of a foul call.
But as you can see, Tanaglia clearly was playing tenacious small white guy defense, did not touch his body, and may have gotten a piece of the ball, causing the shot to be off.
I’ve been there before. The small white guy with way too much energy is the last guy you want guarding you. Everyone else eases up at some point, but we don’t. Our meal ticket is our energy. We can’t rebound and if we drive to the hoop we’re getting our shit swatted. If we don’t play tenacious defense every second we are on the floor then we are useless. He had no choice.
While Kewan was bitching to the refs Tanaglia ran down the court (despite being up 10, because small white guys in basketball never stop running) while Kewan jogged back, leaving Tanaglia wide open in the corner for an easy 3.
The worst part about that attack was that it was premeditated. Kewan specifically looks at the ref to see if he’s looking at Tenaglia.
When he realizes he’s not looking he then walks over to him while Tanaglia is off balanced.
Gives him a vicious right elbow to the face while lowering his shoulder into him.
And follows through.
That’s not a foul, it’s a crime. And I don’t understand how he hasn’t been arrested yet. Wearing a basketball uniform doesn’t mean the law ceases to exist. That was not part of the game or something that happened in the heat of the moment. He knew he was going to do the entire way down the court. He hated the fact that he thought Tenaglia got away with a foul, which was compounded by being down 10, followed by an airball, followed by a wide open 3 from a player who would not stop giving Fitchburg State standup doggy.
Fitchburg State to their credit has not only condemned and suspended him from the team, they’ve kicked him out of the school completely.
They’ve already gotten rid of his name from their 2018-19 roster online.
Some people are saying it should be a hate crime, but that’s just dumb. The only thing Kewan Platt hates is effort and defense. But as stated before, we have no choice but to play like this in order to survive in a sport that clearly was not made for our kind.
Kewon Platt is a 2016 graduate of Charlestown High School, and recently transferred to the Burg State. You’ll never guess what his major is…..
Criminal justice. That would be like Greg Bates majoring in Honesty.
Platt is 6’4″ and is actually wicked nasty.
He’s FSU’s leading scorer and put up 33 points against Lasell the game before. For that he was named conference player of the week.
And because he’s such an impulsive dooshnozzle he’ll likely never play organized basketball again.
Tenaglia is from Tewksbury and scored over 1,000 points for Tewskbury High before transferring to a prep school (which sadly is the thing to do these days, as most college caliber players no longer stay in public schools).
That face right there just screams “Dudley.” It was his destiny to end up at Nichols. Just like Kewan Platt’s behavior just screams “Fitchburg,” so too was he destined to end up at FSU.
Turtleboy believes is kind, fair, just, and merciful. We believe in redemption, but we also believe in justice. Expelling Kewan Platt from school and charging him criminally with battery is warranted, but down the line he should get a chance to prove that this one moment in time does not define him. If he shows contrition he should get a chance to enroll at another college, because the alternative is he goes back to Charlestown, starts selling rock, and becomes a statistic. He just can’t ever play organized basketball again.
P.S. Laughed out loud at this one.
Anyone got a rope?
I can’t believe nobody ran out and kicked his ass….that deserved an immediate beatdown. Blatant arrogant asshole lays a hit like that needs an attitude adjustment served up soon. Sometime you just have to stand up for yourselves and give him the beating he deserves. That was one of the dirtiest hits ever…looking over at the ref to make sure he isn’t watching, dumbass forgot every tom, dick an harry has a cell phone these days. I hope he gets what he deserves, he’s now Turtleboy and barstool sports famous.
Don’t worry, our office is imminently looking into this as we speak. And we will refuse to bring up charges against him, and tell my State Police buddies to edit the narratives to make Kewan sound like a good human being who made a mistake, and didnt du nuffin.
Fitchburg State is 13th grade for retards. Who the hell cares what those dimwits do? Enterprise Rent a Car will always need assistant managers.
Seriously, it’s like high school with ashtrays. I just love how in his roster profile the school spelled his hometown Jamaica PLANE. Do you even need to graduate high school to be accepted there?
I’m so utterly shocked you made this racial.
Yeah, they didn’t have to make it racial. Blacks will find a way to make something racial themselves, and they prove every day that they’re perfectly capable of fucking up their own lives without any assistance from white people. Realistically, they’re only around to be ticks on the ballsack of white people in general, and that’s why we send them to jail. Apparently they don’t learn from it, because all they do are things that will make them end up in jail. At least they’re shooting each other at a competitive rate so the jails aren’t ever over capacity.
This was not inadvertent contact. This wasn’t even a foul. This was a viscious assault. There clearly was malice aforethought and an intent to injure. Charge him criminally. Just because it happens at a sporting event doesn’t negate criminal responsibility.
Calm the fuck down, Kee-wan. Nobody from FSU ends up playing for the NBA. It’s not like this little basketball game was going to pave the way for some multi-million dollar career. At best you will work paycheck to paycheck like the rest of us.
I agree though….if it were a hockey game, the crowd would have been cheering him on. Why?
He will not be charged. He will become a police officer in Boston for the Transit Police where the Chief wants to get rid of civil service because he has to hire too many white disabled veterans. Check out his comments which are posted on the meetings of the MBTA’s financial control board. He also commented on a pirate radio show in Roxbury that he wants to darken the department.
That is bullshit. Intentional head contact at a hockey game (at any level) is not applauded by spectators.
There’s a big difference between clean hard checks and assault in hockey.
Marty McSorley is the ultimate example. Convicted of assaulting Brashear on the ice, Marty never played another NHL game.
Classy kid. If he isn’t charged criminally he will take a civil service exam and be hired because of his race. Then he will be showing up at your house when you call 911. Then when he beats someone to death they will blame the white cops for making him act that way.
And the award for reinforcing negative stereotypes goes to
If you thought that was criminal have you seen a hockey game lately?
Black on white assault and it gets barely a passing sentence on the news. If it was the other way around the Basic Whites would be out in force! Such bullshit
