If you go to the About Page on Dubsism, you are going to see right up front that I would love to stick to sports. That’s why when I want to go all realpolitik, I am a contributor at TurtleBoy Sports. The following block-quote sums up what I’m really all about.
Face it, political discussion all too often becomes simply an exercise in name-calling, and people have been known to start wars over religion. It’s not that Dubsism shys away from these topics; quite the opposite in fact. When necessary to the overall picture, references on this blog may point to those two topics. However, since this is really more about an outlet for assorted sporting rantification and less about starting a crusade, the author promises that all
frontal nudityreferences to non-sporting topics will be germaine to the point at hand.
Unless you live under a rock at the bottom of a cave on the dark side of the moon that only gets service from Comcast, you know on Friday night President Trump went into full “shots fired” mode on the spate of recent “protests” in the NFL. Now, let’s be clear as to what this is about. I’ve already debunked Colin Kaepernick’s alleged First Amendment “rights,” exposed what Kaepernick’s real motive was for starting all this non-sense, and I’ve already elucidated five non-Kaepernick related reasons why I’m pulling plug on the NFL. In other words, the fans that Trump is exhorting to walk out of football stadiums simply will be following me.
Obviously, this makes one time in which I couldn’t agree with President Trump more than I do. From a sheer sports fan perspective, the NFL is a bullshit product, and if the league doesn’t want to address a handful of hypocritical ass-wipes who want to continue to blame everybody else under the sun for largely non-existent problems they don’t seem willing to assemble their own resources to combat, then screw the NFL.
If I hadn’t already been solidly on “Team Screw The NFL,” Kommisssar Roger Goodell’s response to President Trump’s comments would have put me on the express train heading that way. That’s why Goodell’s bilge-water is getting a patented Dubsism breakdown.
“The NFL and our players are at our best when we help create a sense of unity in our country and our culture.”
That “sense of unity” line is priceless. Does Goodell really expect me to buy that garbage after he sat on his hands when the poster-child for this bullshit showed up in Miami wearing a Fidel Castro t-shirt? Like most “progressive” hypocrites, “unity” only applies to to a “preferred” class, which in the eyes of Kommissar Goodell does not apply to a city full of Cubans and their descendants who suffered at the hands of one of the greatest murderers of the 20th century.
“Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities.”
I almost don’t even know where to start with this one…almost. Let’s just start with the first word…”divisive.” We’ve already touched on “Captain Unity’s” gigantic “Up Yours” to the Cuban community, but let’s not forget about the scorch-job he’s laid on the due process of NFL players accused of various forms of wrong-doing. Anecdotal as it may be, it says a lot about Goodell’s level of inconsistent tyranny that Ezekiel Elliot is still in the midst of a Tom Brady-esque “witch hunt” in which there was precious little evidence to support that a crime was actually committed, meanwhile he white-washed clear video evidence of Michael Bennett’s potential crime and certain slander of two minority police officers. Make note of the “anti-police” angle on this; it’s going to be important in a minute.
Then there’s “lack of respect for the NFL, our great game, and all of our players.” We’ve already established the NFL is putting a crap product on the field, which in and of itself means it deserves no respect. But the real “red meat” in that statement is in “ALL of our players.” There’s a really good reason not to respect ALL your players, Kommissar. So many of them are criminals one could make the argument “NFL” is really an acronym for “National Felon League.”
If you doubt that, head over to a website called NFLArrest.com. Comb through the numbers; they are really astounding. But what can’t get missed in all the number-crunching is that this so-called protest is this all got started with “Hands Up, Don’t Shoot” in St. Louis over a situation in which the anti-police narrative being sold was shown to be blatantly false.
Ask yourself a question. What is the #1 group of people who don’t like cops? Raise your hand if you said “criminals.” In other words, this whole movement has nothing to do with “social injustice.” It’s more about bad people who do bad things who don’t like the people whose job it is to protect the Americans who pay for this league from bad people who do bad things.
Not only is that completely unworthy of respect, Kommissar Goodell…it is complete bullshit.

Don’t be a Goodell. Support TurtleBoy’s sponsors. They’re the ones who make this all possible.
Please view this You Tube video. A Marines letter to the NFL
I love it J-dub put a Jewish flag behind Goodell proves the point like a Jew the u.s flag is cheap like them,it flys in Jew wars for lol your freedom lol.thanks for showing TB.
If the NFL wants POTUS to stay out the Political part of the NFL tell the teams to stop building stadiums with PUBLIC MONEY.
I am a life-long, 30-years-married-man-with-two-sons, 100% heterosexual he-male who finds the prospect of homosexual trysts utterly revolting, but J-Dub’s analysis on this subject is so spot-on that I almost find him attractive.
I’ll send you a picture of me without a shirt. That will solve any problems you may have.
I’m over the NFL. So many better things to spend your thoughts, time and money on. Especially if you have a family. To think of all the $$$ I’ve spent over a lifetime on NFL related bullshit makes me sick, literally a small fortune
Reclaimed our Sunday. No Fun League no more. Might be harder in November we will manage.
Enough BS TB! Plain and simple, Trump went over the line here. Bitch and moan about 1st amendment rights, and lack thereof. The right to protest Is a fundamental right, Not something the POTUS should be tweeting about. Sad!
Trump is starting trouble. He is making everyone disrespect the flag and the country. He caused race riots, kneeling and genuine Anti-american bull shit. I am appalled.
Oohh wait that was all me
After what Obama did to divide. Any surprise here?
I read that the Steelers will remain in the locker room during the National Anthem. Not only is it disrespectful, but it is an insult to the fans who spent a lot of money to go and see them. If people were to stop attending games, prices and salaries will come down, and if people stop watching the games on TV, advertising costs will drop dramatically. The consumer controls all the cards in this game.
wish som active servicmen walked into the lcoker room and started shooting
What a juvenile comment. Troll.
The left is out to destroy. Religion Marriage Boyscouts Football Morality and Values. They won. No need for civil war. The states should just part ways. a country without common values is not a country. never has been never will.
Time to take a nap from the nappy headed hos that have lame uniforms that resemble lot of Spice Girl costumes.
I’ve long thought is should be renamed the “negro felon league “
They jewed the flag like the Jews did in Russia perfect picture,kikes ruin country’s.
These clowns continued their disrespect today in a foreign country. They are an embarrassment. The kneelers should be identified and have their passports revoked. Let them apply for asylum to some other country.
Screw them and the NFL!
NO NFL for me today.
