The past week has brought some very positive news for Caste Football’s all-time favorite franchise.

The rotund black LB, Brandon Spikes, was cut after a likely DUI hit-and-run. This helps the possibility of the squad’s white LB’s (Fletcher, Morris, and White) making the team and getting some defensive snaps. From NESN…

One more player to watch in minicamp and training camp: linebacker James Morris. He could be primed for a top reserve linebacker spot with Brandon Spikes out of the picture.

Black TE, Tim Wright, was recently cut. This coincides with news of TE Scott Chandler lighting up OTA’s, former DE Jake Bequette switching to TE, and the drafting of Arkansas TE, AJ Derby. Gronk and Chandler are the clear #1 and #2, so hopefully the remaining non-white TE’s (Fred Davis and Michael Hoomanawanui) are eventually cut in favor of Derby or Bequette. From NESN…

The Patriots releasedhttp://nesn.com/2015/06/report-patriots-release-tim-wright-thinning-ranks-at-tight-end/ third-year tight end Tim Wright, and they held onto Bequette, which has to be somewhat of a good sign for the converted pass rusher. Bequette has an uphill battle to make the Patriots’ roster on offense as he fights for snaps with Rob Gronkowski, Scott Chandler, Michael Hoomanawanui, Fred Davis and A.J. Derby, but beating out Wright shows the transition hasn’t been a total disaster.

CAPTION: Gronk/Chandler, Tallest TE Duo in NFL History, at OTA's

Eagles guard, Evan Mathis, is set to be released by Philly. New England was linked in trade talks with Mathis back in March and the team is allegedly showing some interest now that he’s a free agent. It would be nice and would certainly help to keep the OL an all-white unit (amidst an alarming plethora of reserve sumos) for 2015…

The 2015-2016 campaign should be the whitest team we’ve seen in the Bellichick/Brady era, or at least equal to the 2011 squad (Welker, Gronk, Edelman, and underutilized Woodhead) that saw two white pass-catchers (Welker and Gronk) eclipse 1,000 receiving yards, Edelman playing nickel CB and returning punts, Woodhead returning kicks, etc. I don’t believe that Brady’s suspension will hinder the team’s playoff chances.

The switching of Jake Bequette to TE is interesting.

Bequette came out in the 2012 draft as a DE. He was productive in college and tested out well athletically. I thought he was a good prospect but apparently he didn't do well as a DE in the pros. I would think that Belichick gave him a fair shot, especially since he was a third round pick.

Because of his athleticism it makes sense to try him at a different position rather than give up on him. He may do well at TE.

The Patriots signed quarterback Matt Flynn. Smart move by them. This gives them Garoppolo and Flynn while Brady is absent due to suspension.

For his part, Flynn may have signed with New England because he wants to play on a championship team.

Good signing by the Pats to get Flynn. I hope Jimmy starts all 4 games and lights the league up but having Flynn on the roster is a nice insurance policy. That's to bad they moved Bequette to Te. They never seemed to let him find his place on defense - I think he could of been a great hybrid de/olb but what do I know.

I am really hoping Morris makes an impact during training camp and solidifies a place on the roster. He was the best lb on all of those iowa teams but was totally disrepected when he was not drafted but the two black scrubs he played with at iowa were.

The Patriots are doing the equivalent of contrary investing, or mining penny stocks. I think that's what Kelly is doing in Philadelphia. But if too many teams did this the minor leagues ie college football will have to fundamentally change. Not enough teams are playing Whites in the positions that they are contrary investing in.

The releases of Brandon Spikes, Fred Davis and Wright are all good news for us. Think we could see James Morris and Dane Fletcher stick as well as AJ Darby maybe at Tight End if they carry four or feel Houmannaowui (whatever the spelling is) is dispensable. Think the Pats will be out clear favourites again here at caste football.

Yes, after another very black draft, the Patriots have indeed made some very nice moves this off-season, especially at the TE position. The only bad piece of news appears to be at the left guard position, where black rookie, Tre’ Jackson, is apparently already the starter in OTA’s...

http://www.endzonescore.com/new-eng...jackson-is-already-a-starter-after-otas/16564

Will the old free agent warhorse, Dan Connolly, return to New England? It’s not likely, as the Patriots already gave his #63 jersey number to Jackson…

477756480-new-england-patriot-rookies-spread-cheer-to-gettyimages.jpg


So the traditionally all-white Patriot OL will now be 4/5 white for the first time since the 2011 season in which Brian Waters started in place of an injured Dan Koppen and the 2013 season in which Marcus Cannon started in place of an injured Sebastian Vollmer.

From a Caste perspective, Jackson starting should be no net loss of white starters, which should remain around 8-9-10 with Brady, Edelman, Gronkowski, Solder, Stork, Wendell, Vollmer, and possibly Chandler, Amendola, and Develin depending upon the formation to open the game.

Defensively, as the poster “Woodyâ€￾ mentioned, Dane Fletcher could join Ninkovich as a starter early in the season filling in for Hightower. Nate Ebner, Joe Vellano, Chris White, and James Morris could all make the squad as reserves.

In other news, the Pats were awarded their SB rings last week. Hard to believe that Brady has played in 6 SB games and could have easily won all 6, had only his all-black defenses managed to hold at the end in 2007/2008 and 2011/2012…

Playing in 6 Super Bowls and winning 4 of them is quite an impressive record.

I wonder how many players have even played in 6 Super Bowls.

With starters Mayo and Hightower on the mend until September, white LB’s Dane Fletcher and James Morris are projected to be running with first unit in training camp at MLB and WLB, respectively. From Bleecher Report…

With Hightower and Mayo unlikely to go full speed for much, if not all, of camp, unheralded prospects like James Morris and Darius Fleming, as well as returning vet Dane Fletcher, could all get valuable reps with the first-stringers. In addition, a hybrid type like third-round rookie Geneo Grissom could have an opportunity to exhibit his versatility on both the edge and off the ball.

I’ve read that Hightower, in particular, could be placed on the PUP list following shoulder surgery and miss the first 6 games.

In other news, as per WEEI.com, our favorite pair of “White Wideouts†have been impressive this offseason, especially the permanently-maligned Amendola…

Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola (the latter of whom had another good outing) got work in as punt returners. It’s been a good spring for Amendola, who continues to make nice catches over the middle.

Also, the “Polish Powerhouse,†Gronk, was on the Family Feud TV show recently and exhibited his ultra-extroverted personality. His antics are very rare from a white athlete, 99% of whom are boy scouts who are “just happy to be here†and “will do anything to help the team.†After hoisting the SB Title, Gronk’s capers have increased exponentially…

[video=youtube;eybUWtvErG0]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eybUWtvErG0[/video]

The host, black comedian Steve Harvey, is usually an anti-white prick, but he said “You can flat out ball!†to Gronk, which I found interesting, as it's rare for a black male to priase a white man for any sort of physical prowess.

Brady's 4 game suspension was upheld by Goodell today, while Leveon Bell's black privilege resulted in his being reduced from 3 games to 2. Brady reportedly may file suit against the league. I hope he does; even if he was guilty, what he did was child's play compared to the on and off field conduct of so many of the league's "magical" players.

This "cellphone" story is beyond absurd. So he smashed his cellphone. Big deal. Nobody stores email messages in the phone! Everything is on cloud servers. Outlook, iPhone, any of the Yahoo, gmail, you name it, email services. Nothing is stored "in the phone". I haven't seen one news service story mention this. What, they're using all 16 gigabytes or whatever of memory on their phones storing emails? I don't think so.

Goodell deciding on appeal of his own decision is ridiculous. My take on it is that Goodell had to go tough on the honkey or face the wrath of BSPN and associates.

Also I imagine Brady was offered a reduction to not go to court where he has a good chance of winning and Brady decided to take it to trial, so the NFL stuck with 4 games. Now what is Brady's reason for not going to trial? He has nothing to lose.

Someone said if there is a trial, they can subpoena Brady's phone records and text messages. Hmmm. Does Brady want to take it that far? We shall see.

The risk of a court action is that if the suspension is again upheld, instead of missing the first four games of the season the suspension could take place much later in the season, possibly even continuing into the playoffs. And his getting rid of his cell phone will be used by the same media and DWF circles that are already convinced he's guilty, mostly because they're jealous of Brady's looks and success.

Goodell is the pits. He's the same clown who suspended Ben Roethlisberger even though he was never charged with a crime much less convicted of one.

The Patriots play the colts week five - Brady's first game back so you know the NFL and bspn are going to hype it up and make it as much of a soap opera as possible.

Brady did nothing wrong - several NFL vets have spoken out on how absurd it is. If anything it is the NFLs fault for not enforcing their own rules.

Don I totally agree with you on the absurdity of the whole thing, goodell is a clown who has his priorities out of whack but what else would you expect from that clown who participates in those moronic gestures with all of the future 1st round draft busts he welcomes into the league every year.

Who cares about his old cell phone? All of Brady’s text messages to the Patriot ball boys, equipment managers, and assistants were revealed many months ago, and even the texts between those employees (mainly Jim McNally and John Jastremski) were shared in the yawn-promoting “Wells Reportâ€â€¦

https://nfllabor.files.wordpress.co...s-re-footballs-used-during-afc-championsh.pdf

Yeah, they all joke around about air pressure via text, but why wouldn’t they? Managing football equipment is their livelihood. There’s nothing conclusive in that report, which is why nobody cared when it was released back in May and Brady is fighting this to the bitter end. As FootballDad mentioned, destroying his old cell phone is not “incriminating,†as every text message and email can easily be recovered by soliciting the service providers. Regardless, the Pats started 2-2 last season and looked dreadful before righting the ship. I think they can manage a win or two over the hapless Jags, the declining Steelers, or the EJ Manuel-led Bills.

Should be humorous to watch a hyper-motivated Brady return to steamroll the Colts’ coal-hued defense (as New England always does with the greatest of ease), then run roughshod over the league in 2015/2016...

It seems Brady's case will go to court on August 12th and 19th. Thankfully, the judge vows to make a decision before the opening game...

sports.yahoo.com/news/players-union-league-seek-quick-resolution-brady-case-184115998--nfl.html

Should the suspension be lessened or lifted all together, it would be a great win for CF's favorite franchise. Regardless of the outcome, it'll be fun to see a 4-time SB champion QB stocked with some extra motivation as he turns 38 in a few days and embarks on his 16th season.

Saw a segment on the Patriots' training camp today and the report said that two of the black rookie o-linemen they drafted this year are currently running with the first team.

Here is an excellent article by Frank Schwab, one of Yahoo's "Shutdown Corner" writers in defense of Tom Brady. http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/nfl-s...why-the-nfl-sold-out-tom-brady-140037384.html

Yeah good article. Fails to answer the question it asks. Why? Why does the league seek to destroy probably it's most famous and popular player? The writer is a sportscuckster. See what I did there? He's not a sports "caster" but a sports "cuckster", a white male that knows exactly whats going on, understands completely the racial implications, but doesn't have the balls to say it. Just like "cuckservative" is the new meme used to describe a ball-less white male conservative who is afraid to defend his race and people, so are sportscucksters afraid to address the racial aspects that are so obvious.

Saw a segment on the Patriots' training camp today and the report said that two of the black rookie o-linemen they drafted this year are currently running with the first team.

Rookie Sumo #1, Tre Jackson, is indeed slated to start at LG. However, last year's white starter, Ryan Wendell, is set to return soon from shoulder surgery and should start at RG, barring a setback. Thus, Rookie Sumo #2, a Shaq Mason, should be a backup.

The 2015 Patriot roster should have more sumos than ever before in the Belichick era (4). Typically, the Pats keep 9 OL, so projections for starters/reserves are highly disconcerting...

White Starters - Solder, Stork, Wendell, Vollmer

Black Starters - Jackson

White Reserves - Kline

Black Reserves - Mason, Cannon, Flemming

Hopefully, Jordan Devey can beat out one of the sumos for a roster spot, but I don't see it happening.

The addition of the gargantuan, dynamic TE, Scott Chandler (to pair with Gronk), helps to sooth the pain of losing the all-white OL.

Many here at CF were becoming concerned that the non-white reserves on the Patriot OL were becoming too plentiful. This recent move, which involved the Pats trading black LB, Matt Wells, to the Bears in exchange for white guard, Ryan Groy, could be proof that the team isn’t sold on their coal-black collection of OL backups…

http://nesn.com/2015/08/report-patriots-trade-with-bears-for-offensive-lineman-ryan-groy/

CAPTION: Groy Joins Pats

The trade has added benefits, as it’ll be one less black LB that’ll compete with Dane Fletcher, James Morris, and Chris White for a roster spot in NE.

The patriots traded Devey to the 49ers for some camp body black tight end. Was BB watching the same game I was last week when their backup sumo line collapsed so many times.
