Smallthoughts: Rants and Raves

Rants: Greg Hardy…After reading the Deadspin article of what happened with Grady Hardy and Nicole Holder and seeing no remorse from Greg Hardy, the question is why is he playing football, after seeing the bruises on Holder’s back and chin he should not be allowed to play football ever.No man has the right to put his hands on a woman in a violent manner. Ray Rice has not been on the football field since his violent act against his finance,now wife. He showed remorse, Greg Hardy showed no remorse yet he plays?? And to think Roger Goodell wasted valuable time suspending Tom Brady in deflate gate yet his energies could have been better spent fighting to have his 10 games suspension on Greg Hardy upheld or even extended to the rest of the season at the very least.

Rants: Jose Reyes …If I get on Greg Hardy then I have to get on Jose Reyes as well, fair is fair. There isn’t a lot opf details on this yet but we know this much Reyes allegedly grabbed and shoved his wife, Katherine Ramirez, during the argument.Reyes told police he grabbed Ramirez by the throat and shoved into a sliding glass balcony door. He was arrested after hotel security was called and police arrived.

Ramirez reportedly had injuries to her wrist, neck and thigh. Being stuck on a last place team like the Colorado Rockies are the least of Reyes problems. Putting his hands on his wife is the number one issue he is facing. baseball is said to have a domestic policy in place to deal with this, let’s see what punishment they deal Reyes, let’s hope they drop the ball like the NFL did on Greg Hardy.

Rants: Jerry Jones …his recent quote about the revelation of the pictures of the damage Hardy inflicted on Nicole Holder…”While we did not have access to the photos that became public today, we were and are aware of the serious nature of this incident. We as an organization take this very seriously. We do not condone domestic violence. We entered into the agreement with Greg fully understanding that there would be scrutiny and criticism. We have given Greg a second chance. He is a member of our team and someone who is grateful for the opportunity he has been given to move forward with his life and his career.” Does Jones really believe his own spin? Would he feel this way if this was his own daughter that was dragged by her hair and thrown into a bathroom and left with bruises on her chin and back?

Raves: Kristaps Porzingis … Remember when everyone booed him on draft night and every so called expert ripped Knicks president  Phil Jackson for drafting him? Well no one is booing now.In just under 25 minutes each game, Porzingis is averaging 11.6 points. He also has the second-most offensive rebounds in the league, and is averaging 9.0 total rebounds per game. Yes, he’s close to averaging a double-double while only playing 24 minutes.

Raves:Stephen Curry … The reigning MVP (2014-15) is looking to make this a repeat of winning the award early on this season. A lot of people believed  Lebron James should have been the MVP last season , well Stephen Curry is showing why he deserved it last season and that he is so far leading the charge to win it again for this season. in the game again the Minnesota Timberwolves …Curry exploded for 46 points in 129-116 win, Curry made 15 of his 25 shots from the field, including an 8-for-13 mark from 3-point range, to go with five rebounds, four assists, two steals and just three turnovers. The win propelled the Warriors to the best start in franchise history at 10-0.

Raves:UConn Huskies  Women… The quest to make history continues as the Huskies women look to make it 4 championships in a row, twice they have won 3 championships in a row. The women’s program under head coach Geno Auriemma has won 10 championship but never 4 in a row. Can they do it this time?

    1. The NFL Union used to mean something…Smith is a management stooge in disguise but even that said all of them did no favors to Nicole Holder by giving non repentant Greg Hardy his second chance to continue his career a career I might he has proven he doesn’t deserve to have

  1. The only meaning the NFLPA now has , is is , the comparison which can be made to fecal matter , because as a body meant to represent its members much less lead by example , they’re about as useful as a lump of $hit being dried in the sun. It is simply ridiculous , Roger Goodell seeking advice from NOW (National Organization of Women) as to how best to deal with the issues of domestic violence and spousal abuse.

    Is this sort of frigging idiocy one should come to expect of middle aged Caucasian much less an alleged well-educated African-American male ., DeMaurice Smith as the Executive Director of the NFLPA ?

    1. This has nothing to do with middle age Caucasians or well educated African Americans this has to do with people making bad decisions on other people in this who are employed under the umbrella of the NFL who made bad decisions to beat on the women in their lives in the first place.
