Forget about Deflategate...

Post by Nyarlathotep » Wed Dec 02, 2015 1:43 am

Turns out God himself fixed the 2014 Superbowl (though i think Joyner, the site and God all made a mistake and meant the 2015 Superbowl.)

Rick Joyner: The New England Patriots 2014 Super Bowl Championship Was A Message From God
"He showed me that early in the season," Joyner continued, "and then He told me not to give up on our Panthers either. Does the Lord care about football? Yeah. I promise you, He does. He does because we do. If we didn't, He wouldn't care about it, but because His people do, He does care. I don't believe He picks winners unfairly, unless He does like He did last year to give us a message. And that message was, He said, 'The Patriots are going to win and it is going to be a message that patriotism is going to win.' I believe you're going to see patriotism becoming really popular again."
So there you go, God fixes football games according to what messages he wants to send. So if the Packers win the next one...

I think I blathered on the previous Sorry to Make You Cry that Russell "I'm More Christian Than Teboe!" Wilson ran to the sideline after The Call®

This One

and asked Pete Carroll "what happened" and Pete responded, "he undercut the route."

Weeks pass.

Now Wilson claims Big Daddy IMMEDIATELY spoke to him on the field after The Call® to tell him this was all some sort of test that would make him such a wonderful example to everyone else on this miserable planet. Apparently, given Seattle's year, he failed this test. Anyways, having been told how fucking awesome he is that The Creator and Maintainer of The Universe

Probably

singles him out for testing and education so he will be a fucking awesome example, Russell runs to his coach for a different answer.

On his most recent "Prophetic Perspective on Current Events" program, Rick Joyner once again claimed that God personally told him that the New England Patriots would win the Super Bowl last year and that it was going to be a supernatural sign that patriotism would "become really popular again."

Joyner was discussing the Republican primary race and explaining that while he currently supports Donald Trump, that could change "if the Lord really speaks to me," which He does quite regularly, like when God told Joyner at the start of the 2014 NFL season that the Patriots would win the Super Bowl.

"Way in the beginning of last football season, the Lord showed me the New England Patriots were going to win the Super Bowl," Joyner said. "He showed me why and I didn't like his reasons ... I wanted the Carolina Panthers to win the Super Bowl, but the Lord said, 'No, the New England Patriots are going to win again this year.'"
Did he mention to anyone else that the Patriots were going to win the Super Bowl before the Patriots won the Super Bowl?

The guy claims to be a "Prophet" after all. Has he made any prophecies before they happened? Like maybe he could share with us who's going to win this year.

Forget about Deflategate?!

Forget??!

NEVER. It is like the Alamo, the Maine, and the invasion of Poland all rolled into one!

We shall never surrender. We will fight them in courtrooms, and on the sports news channels, and in the comments sections of questionable news sites everywhere.


And wherever we go, we will know in our hearts, the TRVTH: The Colts were blown out by like 3 million points and short of placing roughly 26 pounds of lead shot into the New England footballs, they were going to be blown out, stomped on, and run over. Then mulched.

. . . I seem to have strayed from my point.

Very pointy. Possibly the pointiest point in the history of points. Which goes back as far a geometry, which itself was invented well before 1960, the year the New England Patriots were founded (though they were then the Boston Patriots).

Brady's "body coach":

http://www.bostonglobe.com/sports/2015/ ... story.html
The Patriots, in an unusual departure from National Football League practice, have created a revenue stream for a private business owned by their franchise quarterback, Tom Brady, and a partner who faced federal sanctions after falsely presenting himself as a medical doctor and deceptively promoting nutritional supplements.

One notable product that Brady’s partner, Alejandro “Alex” Guerrero, promoted — and the quarterback enthusiastically endorsed — was marketed as helping to prevent and heal concussions, a grave health issue for NFL players and a challenge to the sport’s image. The Federal Trade Commission effectively shut down sales of Guerrero’s “neuroprotective’’ drink, Neurosafe, in 2014, repudiating his “extraordinary claims.’’

Nine years earlier, the FTC sanctioned Guerrero, who doubles as a fitness specialist, for marketing a beverage made largely of organic greens that he falsely claimed could help prevent or cure cancer, heart disease, arthritis, and diabetes.

Guerrero’s past has not dissuaded the Patriots from forging a business relationship with the company he owns with Brady, the TB12 Sports Therapy Center, at the Patriots Place complex adjacent to Gillette Stadium. Since the center opened in 2013, the team has paid the company for Guerrero and his staff to provide treatment services and nutritional advice to multiple Patriots players.

This has been going on for some time. "Players swear by him" and that is all that staff cares about. Player happy? Player think he can play? Fine.

Ethical? Justified? No.

Promotes stupidity? Yup.

Wilson--the guy throwing the ball to Malcolm Butler up there--was promoting a "concussion protector/preventer . . . preventor . . . prophylaxis" snake oil until the Feds told him to cool it. Just as Jenny's tits do not make her an immunologist, Brady's passer rating does not either.

Not even with Gisele's tits.

Ah the old rope-a-dope...

http://bleacherreport.com/articles/2602 ... per-report

Peyton Manning Among Athletes Allegedly Connected to Doping Ring, per Report

There is some skepticism about the veracity of the claims.
According to Waldron and Grim, Manning's agent told Al Jazeera the documentary's assertions are "outrageous and wrong" but did not flatly deny the clinic sent HGH to the quarterback's wife: "The treatment he received at the Guyer Institute was provided on the advice of his physician and with the knowledge of team doctors and trainers."

The Peyton Protection Plan in regards to HGH accusations is a duplicitous farce

Jim Nantz stands by Peyton Manning. Not that we should be surprised.

The moment should have carried a healthy level of shaming, when the CBS NFL play-by-play man announced to a captive audience Sunday afternoon that Peyton Manning was the story heading into the 2015 NFL playoffs after Sunday’s emergence from the bench. But instead the pronouncement highlighted everything so duplicitous about any recent fawning over the Denver Broncos quarterback.

Manning was 5 of 9 after relieving Brock Osweiler in Sunday’s win over the San Diego Chargers, a victory that locked the Broncos in as the No. 1 seed in the AFC. He had an 80.3 passing rating, which, to be fair, was his fourth-highest of what will go down as the worst season of his Hall of Fame career.

That didn’t stop Nantz from his typical deification of Manning, likening the return to the resurrection of a career many presumed dead, and one that still might be.

As for that whole HGH business? The story Nantz and partner Phil Simms ignored for the entirety of the broadcast — as did every other football show to grace a TV screen Sunday afternoon? Nah.
“If we talk about it we would only continue to breathe life into a story that on all levels is a non-story,” Because he is a friend of the Quarterback . . . of . . . DESTinY Nantz said on WFAN Sunday morning. “Why add another layer to it?”

OK, Jim. Well here’s another layer for you instead. As the New York Daily News reported Tuesday, Manning and Nantz share more than a love for Sony TVs and Papa John’s pizza. Both men have appeared in commercials together. Turns out Nantz is represented by sports broadcasting agent Sandy Montag, who has represented Manning in some off-field deals over the past decade.

There’s more. “Montag also helped Ari Fleischer, hired by Manning a day after Al Jazeera’s “The Dark Side” became public, launch his White Plains sports communications firm in 2004 after the former White House flak left President George W. Bush’s administration. Sports Business Journal reported in 2014 that the Montag Group, the agent’s consulting firm, would team up with Ari Fleischer Sports Communications to offer joint services.”

“Non-story.” Right?

Not to single Nantz out for his refusal to besmirch Saint Peyton, because CBS colleagues Simms and Boomer Esiason (who expressed his distrust in Al Jazeera Monday morning on 98.5 The Sports Hub), as well as any other league partner from NBC, Fox, or ESPN, also avoided the topic over the weekend as if it were a tomato in Tom Brady’s kitchen. But Nantz has never been shy of his admiration for Manning, a glee that unmistakably drools from his chin straight through the television airwaves on any given Sunday.

Is this Manning/HGH situation only a “non-story” because business partner Nantz and the rest of his “Protect the Shield” cronies refuse it to make it one, whether that’s by directive of commissioner Roger Goodell or out of respect for the quarterback, who remains the face (and forehead) of the league despite his putrid performance this past season?

Only a few hours after Nantz’s much-ridiculed statement from WFAN made the rounds on Monday, CNN leaked news that there is, in fact, a second anonymous source that has confirmed the original documentary’s findings on Manning. Then, on Tuesday, the New York Times’ Michael Powell made a connection between Charles Sly and the athletes named in the report. “With the help of my New York Times colleagues Ken Belson and Doris Burke,” Powell writes, “I scrutinized the list of names, and it soon appeared less random than at first blush. Nearly all of the athletes he named are clients of Jason Riley, a fitness trainer based in Sarasota, Fla. Here is where the story of Charles Sly becomes more intriguing. Sly is a business partner of Riley’s. When Sly applied for a pharmacist license in Florida, he used Riley’s home address.”

But. No story. Peyton got mad and everything.

This isn’t anything new, folks, and it all has just as much to do with protecting the Manning myth as it does making sure the Broncos QB doesn’t have his name embroiled in scandal. The way you heard Nantz tell the story on Sunday, Manning’s emergence in the game was some heroic effort, even though he only passed for 69 yards. Shiloh Keo picked off Philip Rivers and Ronnie Hillman ran for a 23-yard touchdown to help the Broncos clinch home-field advantage. The Biblical version, i.e., the King James (Nantz) Edition, had Manning leading the Herculean charge.

Again. Five-of-nine passing.

Manning of course, has been one-and-done in the playoffs nine times in his 14-year NFL career.

Sports Illustrated’s Peter King likened it to paranoia last week when discussing how New Englanders were treating the Manning news while their own quarterback, Tom Brady, is still on the doorstep to more Deflategate insanity coming up in March. King, like Manning family friend Chris Mortensen of ESPN, essentially threw his arms up in the air with the excuse of “no way,” one that seems to be good enough for most in the NFL. “Oh, Manning said he didn’t do it? Nothing to see here then.” Now, when in the whole, wide, world of performance-enhancing drugs accusations have we heard denials like Manning’s before? Right. Every single damned time.

But instead of casting a curious eye, these bastions of NFL journalism instead protect their man for the good of his legacy, not to mention, in the case of Nantz, the nature of representation.

Ponder this; Can you even envision Goodell going up against Manning in a court of law fighting for the truth like he did last summer with Brady? Hell, the scenario in which the commissioner suspends Manning four games for using HGH isn’t even a remote possibility. Manning, despite his lone Super Bowl victory to go along with a string of January gaffes, is still football royalty. Brady, despite his quartet of Lombardis, doesn’t have the pedigree that Manning does, an outsider of sorts in a league that can tend to be incestuous.

Manning sells football food. Pizza, man. Brady hawks fancy watches and slippers. Which one do you think would be better served as the face of the league for the common fan? You take down Manning, you take down Papa John, who has a significant advertising presence locked up in the NFL. Uggs? Who gives a damn?

As with most cases in this NFL, Manning’s protection comes down to cash as much as it does legacy, which means the league will eschew the embarrassment of sweeping it under the rug in exchange for making its advertisers happy.

Why do you think it took an unaffiliated outfit like Al Jazeera to do the report in the first place?

Let's not forget the sexual assault case against Peyton Manning in college that everyone conveniently leaves out when talking about his legacy.

ETA: Left out the word "case" so it made it sound like Manning was sexually assaulted, instead of him being the perpetrator.
