As the season opens let me utter words of praise for a man I usually mock, Dan Snyder.
 
Yes, I write here to PRAISE The Dan Man, the Danster, the Man from Danstinia, the tiny nocturnal lumberjack, the Midget Megalomaniac.
 

 
The story of how a$$ kissing, jock sniffing little Danny, a young P.R. guy (i.e., B.S. Artist), slithered first into control, then ownership of the Redskins is a true inspiration to all young con artists, street hustlers, and shysters.  But that is a story for another day, for today I come to praise him.
 
Why?  Because the Washington Redskins are still the Washington Redskins!
 
In these days when lawless mobs of mindless iconoclasts roam the country ripping down statues and rioting for name changes, the Redskins are still the Redskins.
 
This is remarkable especially in that the combined forces of political correctness have been marshalled in a relentless campaign against little Danny and his trademark for more than a decade.  Yes, every pander-bot politico, every"civil rights" organization joined legions of columnists, editorial writers, and talking heads across nearly all media to rain down withering condemnation and calumny on Little Danny. 
 
But, against this onslaught, he and his phalanx of attorneys stood as strong and determined as the Spartans at Thermopylae.  Until, finally, the President of the United States of America and his Patent and Trademark Office stepped in and voided Danny's exclusive trademark rights, dealing a literal death blow in the form of an unassailable  bureaucratic edict.
 
Bloody but unbowed, little Danny bravely appealed to the Federal Court.  But it was a bad day in Danstinia as the bureaucratic edict was upheld in the Eastern District of Virginia - conveniently, and literally, right next door to the Patent and Trademark Office in Alexandria, VA.
 
So there Danny was, lying on the courtroom floor with sucking chest wounds and surrounded by hordes of politically correct hyenas signaling their virtue with yelps and high-fives ... but WAIT ! 
 
The movie doesn't end there!
 
Earlier, it seems that an Asian boy band out of Portland had wanted to trade as "The Slants" and were denied that right by the same bureaucrats that had, for much the same reason, scalped the Midget Megalomaniac and his Deadskins. 
 
The Asian lads felt that their First Amendment Rights had been trifled with by some lowly bureaucrats and took them to court.  (I can only guess that all the way out in Portland they couldn't see that these bureaucrats in Alexandria, VA were, in fact, God-like). 
 
Of course, the lads lost in the virtual signaling District and Appellate Courts of the Left Coast; undaunted, they appealed to the Supreme Court where even RBG, Kagan, and the Wise Latina sided with the lads!  The bureaucrats lost 8-0 with Gorsuch abstaining as he had not sat for the arguments.
 
This precedent-setting decision healed Danny's sucking wounds much like Sean Connery's were healed  by water poured from the Holy Grail in Indiana Jones & The Last Crusade!  They really should make a movie of this!
 
The story is not quite over, but the P.C. hyenas are chastened and silent. 
After all, precedent is precedent. 
God Bless the United States of America!
 
And, Hail to the Redskins

I miss the wacko Jack Kent Cooke...and RFK Stadium that would literately shake.
Opening year 1961 as District of Columbia Stadium.

And the Patriots' perfect season is off and rolling!
 
In the above photo I see a Ford wagon, a '59 Chevy, a '59-60 Buick, a '60 Chevy, a '61 Chevy wagon, a '58-60 T-Bird, and a '61 Pontiac...

I'd take any car in that lot...especially the wagons.

Me, too!
 
I lived in the D.C. media market from 1969 to 2005 and Redskins games in that stadium were unbelievable. - the ultimate home field advantage that makes by comparison today's K.C. and Seattle seem like Quaker Meetings!
 
Oh, and Jack Kent Cooke, 'the Squire' - what a piece of work he was!  His megalomania set a new standard, even in a city full of such.  And what a joy it was to follow the outrageously indiscreet indiscretions of his penultimate trophy wife, Marlene.
 

 
And let's not forget that his quirky will screwed his son, JKC, Jr. and let that scheming little scamp slither his way into control, then ownership of the Redskins.
 
Karma was served when the Danster's first act was to sell the naming rights to Jack Kent Cooke Stadium.  I can't blame him, though; the loan sharks were circling.

One of the funniest things I ever heard in high school was uttered by a farm boy.  When the math teacher chasened him for not knowing an answer he said, "At least I know that you don't step on a cow pie even if the top is dry."  Of course 'you had to be there'.  (BTW: today, Mike owns a chain of J. I. Case dealerships).
 
Even though it was 55 years ago Mike's comment came to mind in thinking about this Ezekiel Elliott mess.
 
It seems that Mr. Elliott, then a "scholar-athlete" in the employ of gaining his higher education at THEE Ohio State University, and his pure-as-the-driven-snow girlfriend had an energetic exchange - about Scripture, no less: Genesis 19 - that got a little kinetic when she sided with Yahweh.  The result was a little light bruising that resulted from the young innocent being restrained, but no blows were struck.
 

 
The matter was investigated by the proper authorities; as no complaint was made and no blows were struck, no charges were brought.  Afterwards, Mr. Elliott's employer coach did not discipline the young scholar in any way. 
 
The lovebirds remained as a couple and were in fact together when the Dallas Cowboys made him their #1 selection in the 2016 NFL Draft.  Mr. Elliott went on to have a highly successful season and, despite a few 'boyz will be boyZ' "incidents" had a fairly smooth (by Cowboy standards) integration into his new community.
 
The cow pie looked dry.  Urban Meyer and the Columbus police had set up fans to aid the drying process.  The 'Ol Parole Officer put it under the exhaust of his G-5! 

 
But Roger Goodell, the $40,000,000.00 man, just had to step on it.  Hell, he was practically forced to by the incessant chatter of the virtue-signaling politically correct that shared his bubble, voices as far away as Bristol, CT!  So the clueless empty suit launched a full-blown investigation of a matter that had been closed and nearly forgotten.  Then, despite the fact that the investigation's result was somewhat indeterminate, didn't do the rational thing - to assess a two or three game suspension that most likely would have been served grudgingly, but with little complaint.  No, Goodell had to go full Judge Roy Bean and slap the miscreant with six.  Those in the bubble (mostly Giants & Jets fans) nodded and clapped in approval. 
 
Well, this raised the ire of both Hall-of-Fame owner Jerry Jones and the NFLPA.  So now that cow pie, instead of baking in the withering Texas sun, is literally being slung and smeared into a "Federal Case" and ...
 

 
Now, "it" all spills out - the "it" being Ezekiel Elliot's drug and alcohol-soaked high-end life-style rife with sodomy whilst in the employ of matriculating at THEE Ohio State University and (evidently) masquerading as a financially struggling "scholar-athlete" - or, perhaps, a "trust fund baby"
 
Ouch!
Oops! 
 
Urban Meyer, the Columbus Police, and recent Canton-inductee Jerry Jones are unavailable for further comment:
 
 
To be fair to OSU, I don't think it's any worse (or better) there than at any other "big-time" school, but I am damn sure that it horrifies them to see this pervasive "sub-culture" exposed. 
 
And you know that HoF'er Jones knew precisely what he was getting; I'll bet Elliott was introduced to his new "body man" on draft day.
 
The Dallas Morning News has published the court documents in this whole sordid mess.  
https://sportsday.dallasnews.com/dallas-cowboys/cowboys/2017/09/01/read-ezekiel-elliotts-lawsuit-including-full-interview-accuser-nfl-report 
 
It turns out that HBO's documentary on the NFL is not "Hard Knocks", it's "Ballers".  In any case, Elliott will be playing every game this year and the rank hypocrisy of both the NFL and NCAA Division 1 has been exposed - all thanks to Goodell stepping on the cow pie.
 
Maybe they should stop playing the National Anthem at NFL and NCAA football games.
 
EDIT:  It's time the NFL fires that fatuous jackass and hires Condoleezza Rice. 
They'd better act fast, before Yahweh steps in!

Well, I listened to about half an hour of the Steelers on their internet "station"; .
 
And, I watched a few minutes of the Cowboys gasping for air in Denver.  When will teams start getting to Denver as far in advance of the game as is possible?  Soccer teams do this before playing in Mexico City, Quito, or La Paz.  Are NFL trainers brain dead?
 
And, I hear that the "protests" have now moved from the sideline to the field of play.  When will Roger Goodell grasp the significance of Michael Jordan's comment that 'white people and republicans buy sneakers, too'?  In the meantime, I can only .

Being a STEELERs fan living in Dallas, I really have to laugh at the local sports stations and columnists utter and write such stinging, bitter recrimination over the COWGIRLS losing to Denver in Denver.
 
Altitude aside, they had a bad game that was poorly coached.  But none of that is noted.  Instead, there are frenzied attempts to assign blame, with the assigner-in-chief being the Head Coach and Princeton graduate, Jason Garrett - Jerry's Boy who is easily exasperated by Jerry's Boyz.
 
He runs Elliott nine times for eight yards, gives up, and calls an aerial circus from a non-aerial circus QB.  Then he blames Zeke "Feed me!" Elliott for the loss!  And while the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals is contemplating his future, the future Huntsville resident is behaving badly.  Yikes!   
 
Bill Cowher is laughing his a$$ off!  I wonder how much Jones would have to pay him to clean up this poisonous culture.

Unless he invested all his savings in pager stocks and Myspace, there's not enough money in existence to get Cowher to do that.  The next coach will most likely be someone who needs a job because no one needs that job.

Whatever happened to...Rashard Mendenhall?
 
He gave up football for Hollywood, that's what.
