    Just saw the musical entertainment for the Super Bowl. Going all Hispanic so far with Jennifer Lopez, Shakira and Demi Lovato.

    I suppose it could be worse ….

    Apparently, black troubadours are pressured to not accept invites as SB performers because of Kaepernik supposedly being out of the NFL due to his kneeling -- as opposed to being a terrible QB.

    Thank God for small mercies. If not for the black racial boycott we would get Lizzo wearing a thong and twerking while tooting her flute.

    "But it's Miami, Hispanic-land," will say the white liberals. Never mind that Miami is heavily Cuban while Lopez is Puerto Rican and Shakira (who is pretty much white) is Colombian. To liberals, all Hispanics are brown and all brown people are interchangeable and oppressed.

    Boobs and pelvic thrusting, that's about right.

    Larry Fitzgerald announced he's returning for his 17th NFL season in 2020, which is not good news when it comes to ending the absurd racial apprenticeship Andy Isabella is currently serving.

    It will also give Magical Midget Jr. a reliable underneath target which will inflate his completion percentage (yet still have a poor YPC which will be ignored by the media).

    He actually made around close to 2 million the last few years, which for a fullback has you in the cross hairs of the analytics dorks if your play slips at all. But by star players salaries is a pittance.

    I remember a story when he was a rookie with the Vikings his girlfriend got a job at the Mall of America as a store clerk at a national chain type store. His head is on right when it comes to saving money.....

    yea I was just generalising about our guys but as far as Line he was making 850k which is slightly above league minimum for a 6th and 7th year player, with his roster and signing bonus it was 1.1 million a year. Then they pay almost 40 percent to taxes. Nothing to scoff at still but probably had to play this long in order to get to exactly where he wanted to be in terms of financial security. Quite the contrast from many affletes who live for the moment and blow all of their money. I remember reading that Adrian Peterson is pretty much broke and he made way more money than most players see. That explains why he's still in the league even though it's obvious that he has declined. I wonder if that's the same reason Larry Fitzgerald is also coming back

    Like Hillis said after becoming rarely utilised, his heart was not in it . I'm sure the same was true of Line as well. Had he been used correctly I think he might have stuck around longer.

    You're right I assumed he was making something similar to Dimarco but he was making around the veteran minimum plus signing bonus.

    I seem to recall him signing a series of one year deals when he took over from Kuhn, which is probably a sign of him being viewed as adequate but not important to their offense.

    I do agree with other posters as he had more rushing ability than he was allowed to show as he could have been a decent handcuff, maybe a poor mans Alstott type.

    I was hoping ZLine’s brother Prescott would do well at SMU....
    He had his opportunities, just never developed...Reminds me of being psyched up about Sam Zenner going to SDSU....He vanished after his red shirt season, never to run the ball one time......

    But Zach was truly caste aside....
    How many opportunities did Asiata get with the Vikings to run the ball?
    His pedigree in college did not come close to Zach’s....Wrong paint job....
    Good for ZL to make a couple million dollars or so.....

    I think he could have been a consistent 1000 yard rusher. Not as powerful as Alstott but was definitely quick and elusive in college. I don't think anybody has topped his numbers so far in the same system at SMU. Xavier Jones put up 1000 rushing yards but was shut down against better defenses unlike Zach.

    Yep, Asiata was pretty much the same size and measurables coming out of Utah, which was in the MWC at the time, and he had a fraction of Zach's production. Even though they tested the same I would say Zach looked quicker running the ball

    So many kids don’t even get a chance to run the ball it sickens me....
    The kid Charlie Spegal is a perfect example.....How in all of hell can someone earn a scholarship? Spegal crushed in high school and can only garner a PWO?.....Shame on lots of local programs, including IU, that passed ......We here at Caste Football don’t want whites playing out of pity, or some type of GD Rooney Rule, affirmative action program...
    We want actual talent being recognized and given chances...Whites have given up on their own kind, it seems....Matt Gadek from Texas rushed for 600 yards in a game and has to go FCS....We need to look for AD’s, boosters and other higher up, university folks and ask these questions...
    In no way is it prejudice either, for the lurkers out there.....We are filled with Tyler Matekavich types that are perceived to be too slow, but can really play the game of football.
    At least he has a roster spot.....The masses have truly been brainwashed....The average db in the NFL isn’t good.....Apke could play corner and be ok, I could go on and on.....No more ranting....I must go out and work so liberals and snowflakes can stay home and whine about how shitty their privileged lives are......

    Yea the "too slow" thing kills me. In the last 20 years there have been 245 wide receivers, running backs, safeties and corners that ran 4.65 or slower and not only got D1 scholarships but were considered good enough to get an NFL combine invite. Most of these guys were black. There's roughly around 200 more that ran 4.6 to 4.64. I was surprised to see quite a few backs that ran 4.8 to 4.93. I'm not talking about big bruising types either, quite a few ranged from 5'6 to 5'9 and under 200 pounds. Yet there's only a couple of Whites starting at FBS programs each year and they definitely don't run that slow.

    Pointing out at the Wiki that they label Henry a standout track and field athlete, if solely for his 100 meter time that is of course a joke. Another point I would like to make, some of the smart guys here think that just pointing out times is going to be enough to destroy the Caste System, of course that is not evenly remotely true the people who spew the narrative of the CS must be discredited not reasoned with.

    It doesn't hurt to point out the double standard. Whites often time around the same if not better in many drills as their black counterparts. Their production is often discredited for one reason or another and people point to to the times of a few black outliers when comparing White prospects to back their argument. "See he didn't time as fast as one of the fastest black athletes in the NFL". When they do it's "well he just times fast , it doesn't translate to the field." That's when adjectives such as hip swivel and quick twitch get thrown about.

    For the longest time I had to argue with trolls whose main argument for the lack of white receivers and running backs was the fact that no White person had gone sub-10 in the hundred meter dash. Now we have a sub 10 rusher and most of the fastest black sprinters have been busted for banned substances.

    It shouldn't matter any way because there are rarely plays that long in the NFL. In the last 20 years there have been a whopping total of five 99 yard passing plays. Despite only a handful getting chances to play, White receivers were on the receiving end of 2 of those plays. Wes Welker and Marc Boerigter.

    I don't know much about Marc but Wes didn't time well and didn't have any of the adjectives people use to describe their precious affletes. He just proved people wrong at every level. The same with McCaffrey, although he had the measurables, he still had to prove himself over and over. I am sure both of these players are well aware of the caste system and that they HAD to go the extra mile in order to make it.

    Many of our guys don't realize the double standard and when they are looked over they just assume they weren't good enough. Some of these people who didn't make it are the biggest believers of the black athletic supremacy myth. I was talking to an ex big 10 RB who firmly believes in the "bigger, faster, stronger" thing. Pointing out the fact that there's a 5 7 180-lb half-back with 4.8 speed with a D1 scholarship putting up good numbers on supposedly good defenses... it just kind of makes his argument look silly

    If you are not out there trying to change people's opinions at least once in a while then what's the point? Although it feels like I'm preaching to the choir when posting on here, I figure it doesn't hurt to reiterate the same points I made elsewhere . I'm sure there's quite a few lurkers reading.

    Always a bit humiliating to go from head honcho to OC but to help their green head coach the Giants have hired ex Cowboys HC Jason Garrett. Which begs the question. Why didn't they just hire Jason as their head coach?

    Well at least he will be working with QB Daniel Jones who I think could end up as a superstar.

    Yes, "only" running 11.1 in I am assuming an electronically timed meet isn't that remarkable a time like that won't win the championship of any major city ie a city of 2million people and might not even win a rural district.

    I had two relatives that ran 11 flat times in high school and both could have played college ball but neither did because of the dangers of football, one guy lived in the country and came second his region and missed qualifying for the provincial finals and lost out to a guy built like the blogger. The other guy gained a ton of weight after that and his time went from about a hand timed 11 flat in gym class to about 11.9 but he had the build of a poor man's Red Skins version of John Riggins.

    I used to jibe him about him being forced to playing fullback or even the o line as he was above 200 pounds and he went to a technical school that had few White students and the football team for his school was largely Black but he did have wiggle and vision.

    In a shocking turn of event ((( Netflix))) makes an Aaron Hernandez peace where they show, wait for it......................... he was a flaming homosexual.

    Along with promoting pillow biting, they also promote drug use, saying the F-Word at random non-appropriate times and CTE. The CTE angle I dont get, maybe they suck the assets out of the few billionaire owners/investers like Jerrah Jones? Or they can explain away violent rapey low impulse control affletes?

    Theres not a dead man out there who they don't claim to have been a pole-smoker. Pretty interesting stuff, he 99% likely did it but (((Kraft))) comes across extra shady in this thing. Not intentionally from (((Netflix)))) but from people who know how there lying cons go. Entertaining nonetheless.

    There's a show starting now (8 pm EST) on Reelz, which is channel 238 on DirecTV, called "Aaron Hernandez's Killing Fields." It's a basic cable network, so it can get away with more than the prime time networks but not nearly what Netflix can. But it's three hours long, which is far longer than my interest level in watching it is (not to mention basic cable networks usually show close to 30 minutes of commercials during each hour of programming), so I won't be tuning in.

    I do think it hasn't been established yet just how many people Hernandez murdered. He may have been quite the serial killer.

    Agree 100% if its true what they show. He’s killing for almost no reason at all. There could be countless others going back all the way to childhood. He was probably a complete psychopath.

    His mom was a coalburner with his own cousins boyfriend immediately after the death of his dad. That couldn't have helped his development, and might explain his choice of wife and loser friends. It was really interesting, I don't get the channel which has the other documentary, but will be on the lookout for it online.

    I watched the Netflix piece last night. I found it to be pretty informative but wasn't at all surprised when they had to get the homo angle in there. I found it extra ridiculous that they had one of his HS Teammates claiming to have had relations with him during their High School days.. Seemed like the guy just wanted his couple of minutes of Fame..

    I remember Hernandez, he was a great tight end. Can you imagine him and Gronk destroying teams in the past three years? Yeah, he had a dark side criminal side and got caught. I think he gave into being gay in prison especially if he was the 'giver." I heard a lot of old-time gangsters did it. It does not make it right. But if there is a God, Aaron will have to answer for all of his misdeeds, including the homosexual deeds. I won't be wasting my time learning about his criminal exploits or gayness. Something better to watch or do, no doubt.

    If they're showing a serial killer as a homosexual I'm in favor of it. Frankly, it's a refreshing change from (((media))) portraying all homosexual males as witty, clean-cut, well-dressed upper-middle-class guys who raise property values and make great neighbors :rolleyes:.

    Hernandez was gay, not white, and a murderer - I don't have a problem with those three things being shown to go together.

    Great points. What is easy for me is not easy for others, I could discredit Jesus Christ to his face and amongst his followers, not that I would I just have that talent and most conservatives still have hope in reason and logic, but humans rarely use those qualities. I literally was raised by women till the day I shipped off to the USMC and all that logic, reason and intellectual stuff sounds just peachy to us men, women could care not a wit and our society is totally feminized to the bone.

    Scariest psychopath I ever met was a gay kid who hung out with a good friend's lesbo sisters gang of total sh*tbags. That gang of lesbos was literally Gay Jackass with the odd homo included, their antics were crazy.
