Many years ago in Texas, there was a law on the books stating it was illegal to carry pliers in your glovebox. It was a holdover from cattle rustling days, but it stayed on the books for decades after that was no longer a problem. If a policeman murders someone, he should be punished. If a person regardless of color murders a policeman, he should get the same punishment. All he had to do was condemn racist Nazis. TexasCoyote1 There is a lot of evidence that has been reported on alternative news sites that indicates Charlottesville was a staged event and the participants were paid actors. An eyewitness report of a woman having lunch in a restaurant reported that 6 charcoal gray buses pulled up and all of these people got off.

Proponents still need to win over the governor, the Legislature and three-quarters of NFL owners to make the project a reality, but it’s a significant milestone for a city that’s never had a professional football team and has been hammering out the particulars of the Raiders deal for months.
We’re going to have people wearing Raiders jerseys and high-fiving each other That’s not something you can put a number on. Officials with the Las Vegas Sands, Adelson’s company, said they don’t want to return any profits to the public because they’d be making little or no money on the stadium. They’re also committing to fund construction cost overruns and infrastructure improvements at the yet-undetermined site.
Well, that’s certainly a better headline that what I was going to go with ”Chargers Fumble, Bumble, and Stumble Way to Loss”. It was a rather hot day in San Diego with temperatures in .
By Jack Maxwell With the NFL season fast approaching, most American males are racking their brains trying to decide who they are going to take in the first round of their fantasy draft. I’m just looking forward to seeing the beautiful sights on the sidelines again. As we inch closer to kickoff, take a look at the Top 9 Cheerleaders Turned Celebrities. Apparently, the Office co-star once had what it took to be a St.
President George Bush also invited her to speak at the White House in But be honest, you know her from her work in FHM and Playboy. But one thing’s for certain: She did an amazing job turning her mini-celebrity as a Rams cheerleader into some bank when she hooked up with Prince. Coincidentally, she then co-starred in Purple Rain, and became the lead singer of Apollonia 6. Or if you’re a teenager, you know her from her run as American Idol contestant-turned-fired cohost.
Or if you’re like the rest of us, you simply appreciate the sight of her. This former Raiders cheerleader will house you. You hear that, Tom Cable? With that on your resume, do really need to do anything else?

If an athlete chooses to use his or her spotlight to voice or display a social or political opinion sports journalists, sports owners, and sports executives will often voice their disapproval. One of the most famous examples of this is Tommy Smith and John Carlos. The two African American athletes at the Olympic Games were stripped of their medals for their famous Black Power raised fist salute, wearing black-gloves in civil rights solidarity.
More recently, at the summer Olympics in London, Damien Hooper, an aboriginal boxer from Australia, was threatened with expulsion by the Australian Olympic Committee for wearing a black T-shirt with a picture of an Aboriginal flag, while warming up in the ring before a fight.

This experience has changed me in a way I will never be able to explain. The bond that you create so quickly with 25 other women is something that I will hold close to my heart forever. I will say that I was a little bitter coming into the week as we had just lost to the Eagles horribly the day before my flight left, which knocked us out of the home hosted Super Bowl.
My heart was so heavy. Throughout the week we had many planned and unplanned rehearsals to accommodate for our long halftime performance, appearances and the game, of course. We performed choreography from Wildabeast for halftime along with Jordan Fisher. I will forever be grateful and humbled by this once in a lifetime experience — words could never do it justice. I am so thankful for all that I have been given in my 7 seasons with the MN Vikings. I could never have imagined this is where I would be standing today.
The week was full of a lot of events that were family-fun and surrounded in Disney charm! It truly made the week that much more magical. I thought was the perfect way to think about my life after the Pro Bowl, as well. I had an incredible time meeting and falling in love with my PBC teammates. That was something I will always remember and cherish.

Instead, stress is put on speed, smarts and flawless tackling. All positions in this defense place a premium on speed, and often the result is that they are all undersized by league standards. The defensive linemen in this scheme have to be quick and agile enough to create pressure on the quarterback without the aid of a blitz from either the linebackers or the secondary, with the defensive tackle in the nose position having above-average tackling skills to help stop runs. Warren Sapp is often cited as the primary example of a defensive lineman who flourished in this scheme; indeed, he is now reckoned as the prototype three-technique defensive tackle.
The outside linebackers’ general zone is between the cornerbacks, covering the area of the field from the line of scrimmage to 10 yards back. The middle linebacker must have better-than-average speed, and additional skills to be able to read the play and either maintain his central position to help the outside linebackers cover short passes, drop behind the linebackers in coverage and protect the zone of the field behind the outside linebackers from yards out, or run up to the line of scrimmage to help assist in stopping the runs.
According to Prisco, they “don’t have to be great man-to-man cover players, but they have to be guys who can tackle.

There isn’t “a” side; that is the only side. The only side that is honest, anyway. From all of the John Hughes-type movies where the captain of the football team dates the captain of the cheerleading squad, to the popularity of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders calendar, we all know sex and high profile sports are not two concepts that are foreign to each other.

The rules say that Sea Gals must arrive at games four hours before kickoff, even if they’re not performing.
They must keep their uniforms clean at all times — by contrast, operations staff clean the football players’ uniforms. Cheerleaders must also maintain their weight, skin condition and muscle tone or risk being suspended or fired. Members of the squad cannot date or “fraternize” with Seahawks players or any Seahawks employee.
Sea Gals are paid minimum wage, receive overtime and get two tickets for games at which they perform.

Reprinted with permission from AlterNet. But let’s also pay attention to the millions of people trying to make ends meet on—believe it or not—America’s sub-minimum wage. Some of our country’s richest corporations have turned national wage laws into Swiss cheese, riddling them with special loopholes that let them escape paying even today’s miserly minimum wage.
This amounts to wholesale daylight robbery of restaurant workers, farm workers, domestic workers, pro-football cheerleaders, taxi drivers, and … wait a minute … back up … cheerleaders? Give me an N! The monster moneymaking machine known as the National Football League is continuing to run an off-field power play against its valuable and highly marketable female team players.

NFL Cheerleaders – scam???
The Carolina Panthers came to town with their star receiver, Steve Smith, serving a two game suspension for punching out fellow teammate Ken Lucas. Oh well, thems the breaks, ones that the Chargers were sure to exploit…or did they? In what was a supposed to be an easy win, the Chargers shocked the Panthers by playing lethargic on offense and uncharacteristically soft on defense.
Giving up a game winning touchdown pass on the last play of the game, the Chargers snatched defeat from the jaws of victory, 26 – Yes, it was that ugly.
NFL players aren’t boys; they’re men (albeit some with gun and stripper problems). They’re professional athletes who, in order not to be benched or suspended, have to exhibit self-control every time they take the field, and it’s not just about refraining from clothes-lining each other.
She told them that she and Middlebrooks had fought earlier that night, and he was still angry when he came home. She was treated for injuries at a local hospital; he would later plead guilty to a misdemeanor assault charge. The Broncos traded Middlebrooks to the San Francisco 49ers later that summer. According to the police report, Hopkins became angry and choked her because she refused to stop talking to an insurance agent about adding a car to their coverage.
