    While I'm for this nation, I think the lines are drawn and race war will come. There are always blacks who are good people but when everything falls apart and Pouncey must make his decision, he must side with his own kind or be immediately killed. It'll be the same with the Whites who support black people. Those who choose to stand with the blacks after the fighting starts will be killed.

    If I were a made man in the NFL as in my bank account was made well enough I would tape "Jesus Christ" over thug's name.

    It’s really no different than prison gangs then. While I appreciate your viewpoint, I don’t see an all-out race war but rather an ideological war. Line are being drawn: patriot/capitalist versus communist. Make no mistake communists have been salivating to take over this country for decades. Controlling education and entertainment, swaying minds. Now emboldened and out in the open they are ready for war.

    But anecdotally, in one of my jobs I work with a lot of blacks and many are not behind the BLM movement. They think it is wrong and hurting their people. Like you said, some good people.

    So, hoping against hope, it seems the Marxists might have overplayed their hand and people are waking up to their destructive intentions.

    That is the optimistic side of me.

    Either way, us white men had better be locked and loaded because it will be on us to stop Marxism. It is the fundamental reason why the campaign to psychologically beat down white men has been going in for decades. Marxists know it was white men that have stopped them across the globe and are the only ones with the capacity to do so in our soil now. We are natural leaders and men of action. And we are needed now more than ever.

    Great post. I do feel that blacks have been used by the leftists for the past 50+ years to sow the seeds of discontent and separation. The riots seem to be composed of a hodge lodge in terms of races - useful idiots of all colors who have been indoctrinated either through the re-education system in Amerika or based on up bringing. I do believe there are differences among the races the whole diversity/equality thing contradicts itself.

    The whole system is run from the top down and made to keep everyone divided so the ones that want power can get it and maintain it - divide and conquer. There seems to be a bit of an awakening in the black community and they are realizing they have been played. I am tolerant of blacks and wish they would collectively address the issues in their culture and realize who has destroyed their nuclear family structure and the cities in which they live. It’s now being played out on white people since the leftists already destroyed the black culture in this country.

    This sucks, hopefully George can play in Week 3:

    49ers TE George Kittle (knee) is out for Week 2 against the Jets.
    Kittle didn't practice all week after barely avoiding a serious knee injury in Week 1 against Arizona. Head coach Kyle Shanahan insinuated Kittle's injury might be worse than the public knew, even though the tight end didn't suffer any setbacks this week. “If it was a normal person, we probably would have ruled him out earlier in the week," Shanahan said. Jordan Reed, after drawing praise from coaches and beat writers throughout August, will likely step into the starting role this week against the Jets.

    Great post, agree completely. One of my recent part-time jobs entailed me going all over the place and interacting with all kinds of people. As Shadowlight mentioned in a recent post, I don't see the supposed racial tensions that the media claims exist and are always trying to stoke. It really is an ideological war between those who love America with all its warts and flaws, and those who are trying to violently overthrow it (and likely engage in mass murder if they succeed). The Republican conservatives have been hopelessly cowardly and ineffective in identifying and standing up to the internal communist enemy, but the plandemic and the BLM/antifa terror campaign is really opening up some (formerly sleepy) eyes.

    Robert Woods is a good receiver but does anyone in their right mind think he's better than Cooper Kupp? They're all millionaires but there's no question White NFL players are underpaid compared to their black counterparts, whether by design or, more likely, because they settle for less knowing they're a minority in the league in more ways than one:

    Rams WR Robert Woods signed a four-year extension worth $65 million.
    ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Woods' deal is worth a maximum of $68 million. Woods in 2019 was 12th in receptions and and 16th in receiving yardage in Sean McVay's offense. His new deal is larger than Cooper Kupp's three-year, $48 million contract. Woods and Kupp should be centerpieces of the Rams offense for years to come.

    How is it that all of a sudden the NFL is handing out massive salaries?

    This is an interesting question. And let me preface things by saying the contracts are not just for black players. CM, Kittle, Kelce and Joey Bosa cleaned up like nobody's business in the off season.

    But with the current fan deprivation going on one would think the owners would start getting stingy. Heck I thought they would start showing that face during the draft but nothing doing. In contrast MLB owners tried to find a way not to pay the players anything.

    The Rams are especially a baffling case. My understanding is they are carrying the load for the new ultra expensive shiny new stadium which they share with the Chargers. But the Chargers are mainly slumming so most of the financial risk falls on the Rams yet here they are handing out big bucks.

    Makes you wonder what the hell is really going on?

    The salary cap keeps going up by leaps and bounds. Not this year, but the owners and players agreed to "spread the pain" of this season's revenue hit over a prolonged period of time.

    The NFL is extremely profitable and that shows in the way contracts have really taken off in recent years as the players are entitled to their chunk of the shared revenue, which was $9.5 billion last year, or just under $300 million per team. The top QBs are now making the kind of money the top players in MLB make.

    Packers NT Kenny Clark will be out. The backup Montravious had a stubbed toe so he was out last weekend so now it falls on Kingsley to take over. LOL media and Packers DWFs probably besides themselves that Lancaster and Lowry are allowed to keep their spots at DE.

    Packers signed 31yr old Billy Winn for depth. Another journeyman DL.

    Solak is a pencil necked jock sniffing dweeb. If checked out thedraftnetwork over the past few years so he’s a typical caste cuck. It’s funny they write articles like this but fail to write articles about how a fast 40 time is not an indicator of success in the nfl.

    Godwin is officially out, should mean a big game for Miller and/or Watson. I'm starting Miller on two of my fantasy teams:

    Chris Godwin (concussion) has been ruled out for Week 2 against the Panthers.
    Godwin recorded 79 yards on seven targets in Week 1 and then showed concussion-like symptoms on Wednesday. This opens the door for high ceiling games for Mike Evans and Scotty Miller, as the Panthers deploy one of the worst secondaries in the NFL. Miller's output could be very similar to last week, five receptions for 73 yards, but expect Evans to receive much more opportunity after seeing just four targets against the Saints. Both are comfortable starts for Week 2, with Evans being the priority.

    A good article on big salaries and fan support in the current atmosphere is at unz.com

    Will Woke Jocks Kill the Goose That Lays the Golden Eggs?

    Do millionaire woke athletes believe that watching the NBA or NFL is so genetically hard-wired that the American public is terminally hooked?

    Jobs and livelihoods destroyed thanks to the response to COVID-1984 combined with ever-increasing salaries of BLM-whining affletes will not a strong and happy fanbase make. The powers that be will keep this "no fans in the stadium" policy for as long as they can to cover up the extent of fan disgruntlement, but if Biden wins they'll be in a pickle because the agenda needs Uncle Joe to be the Savior from Corona who Brought Us back to Normal.

    I just read that... hopefully it is only three weeks - I imagine him to be a fast healer.

    still hoping he can eke out 1,000 yard season.

    on the flip side, Teddy is absolute garbage. No defense respects him and it shows in how defenses are all-in in stopping McCaffrey

    I try to look at the bright side, less wear and tear his body will take this year which will mostly likely be a losing season. I would like to see him on a team with a good qb. Teddy looked awful and CMAC was giving it everything he had out there

    I am in total agreement with you there. Let Bridgewater show what he really is and always has been. He stepped into a perfect situation with the Saints last year - great scheme and players around him. In Minnesota he was very average yet the DWFs all clamored for him. Ideally he struggles enough to force Rhule to put in Grier at some point and then also end up drafting a QB. The Panthers look like one of the worst teams in the league this year along with the Lions.

    Bosa's ACL tear confirmed. Just going over the FA list - DE Ryan Bee, DE Mitchell Loewen, LB Clay Matthews and LB Brooks Reed are all available. Perhaps they will sign Joey Alfieri who was on the roster in the preseason.

    So now Bridgewater doesn't have the only guy he's actually, at times, capable of throwing/shoving the ball to? Well, isn't that going to be interesting.

    unfortunately I can sense that they are going to argue that he needs time to acclimate with the new offense, the same luxury not afforded to most White qbs. I can see him pulling together a few wins against bottom dwelling defenses and coaches and dwfs alike will point to that as evidence. I doubt it will happen in the next few weeks being Christian is out but it just takes a few "good" games for a quotaback and then he's crowned. Can you imagine if the situation was reversed? if any White back showed any sort of capability at running the ball then he gets unlimited opportunities to prove himself. That's essentially what has happened at the qb position for blacks the last few decades

    What I fear is that since Christian is now injured he will be labeled injury-prone or there will be calls to make him more gadget player. Maybe less usage like Kamara gets in NO. Still effective but not best back in league numbers.

    To me, it is very important Christian puts up 6+ 1,000 yard seasons. I want him in the HOF. He needs to be a bell-cow back but he doesn’t need a ton of meaningless snaps. He needs a viable back-up to take a handful of carries and passes a game, plus some decoy plays.

    And Carolina needs their offensive line to perform better- they really are not a good line.
