We’re seeing school districts across the country reopen only to shut back down after rashes of Covid-19 tests come back positive. Yet, at the same time, the NFL is in full swing with only a single positive test last week, throughout the entire league.
Well Daniel Horowitz explains that evidently, keeping the NFL playing is more important than keeping little Johnny and Janey in school. And it all comes down to false positives due to hyper-sensitivity of the coronavirus swap test and laboratory contamination. I did a Podcast on this very topic at the beginning of this month. You may view it here.

NFL rejects COVID testing regimen that picks up low viral loads. When can we do the same?

Colin Kaepernick has been duped. He exited college holding a golden ticket, being drafted in 2011 by the San Francisco 49ers as a high second round pick – 36th overall. And he made the most of it. He took his team to one Superbowl and just missed another.
By all accounts, he was good kid and teammate.
Then he met his girlfriend Nessa Diab, a leftist Black Lives Matter type radical, who, in my opinion, poisoned his mind. He went from good player, good person and good teammate to an angry, put upon, radical activist – just like his girlfriend. But I’m sure his transformation was purely coincidental.
By his own actions, he was let go, not to play another down in the NFL. And since then, none of the 32 NFL teams have come-a-calling. Nobody wants him. Not because he doesn’t still have talent. No one wants him because he’s a vocal pain in the butt, and too much of a disruptive distraction for any team – for any locker room.
Just a few days ago the NFL did something extraordinary. Something they’ve never done before. They arranged a private workout for Kaepernick in Atlanta and invited all 32 teams to attend. read more
from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:
If you are a regular reader, you know I am a huge NFL fan and a diehard New England Patriots fan. And to all the haters out there, I was a fan before the start of the dynasty years – although it’s difficult to remember that far back!
I’m not here to gloat – but rather to lament the problem in the NFL – and that is safety, or more precisely, trying to regulate the violence out a violent game.
Now, politically speaking – I’m disappointed, but not surprised. A lot of NFL team owners are left-leaning as are many at the league office and players. They also have a tendency to be spineless and therefore bow to every “we have to do something” mantra. So wanting to regulate human behavior isn’t really that foreign to them. read more

So I found a couple of articles from the Sun Sentinel in Miami Florida about the ongoing ridiculousness of this social justice movement crap and the NFL.
It’s about one head coach, Brian Flores, of the Miami Dolphins who threw in with the social justice crowd by claiming that his own story was one of social justice.
I discuss this being a problem on several levels, but mostly, the coach missed a golden opportunity to tell his real life story of working hard in America, to achieve your goal. read more
After the Superbowl, I usually go into a period of dormancy. Don’t care for basketball, baseball is boring and I can watch enough hockey to stay interested. So when I see a headline regarding anything football, I glom on, no matter trivial.
So Kaepernick is “ready” for the NFL again, eh. Question is, is the NFL ready for him, and will any team take a chance on quarterback who may no longer have it. Also will any team risk any potential antics on his part.
from the Blaze:
Colin Kaepernick looking to get back in NFL after settling grievance—and a QB vacancy just opened
Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is reportedly ready to get back in the NFL now that he has settled his grievance against the league that claimed he had been blackballed for protesting the national anthem.
Kaepernick has not played professional football since 2016, but a source close to the former quarterback said he’s ready to go if called upon. The Miami Dolphins traded their starting quarterback Friday, creating a vacancy Kaepernick could potentially fill. read more
I am certainly not a fan of the Dallas Cowboys. You might even say I’m an anti-fan of the so-called “America’s Team.” And early on I had my mind made up about their star running back Ezekiel Elliot. Frankly I thought he appeared to be an arrogant chump.
Well, evidently looks can be deceiving. I have new-found respect for Elliot, although I will never become a Cowboys fan.
from The Daily Caller:
STAR COWBOYS RUNNING BACK CALLS THE NFL ‘RIDICULOUS’ AFTER BEING HIT WITH RIDICULOUS FINE
Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliot isn’t holding back his criticism of the NFL anymore.
The star running back, 23, was hit with a $13,369 fine this week for “unsportsmanlike conduct,” which seems pretty reasonable, except he only received the fine because he dropped a $21 donation into a giant red Salvation Army pot after to celebrate a touchdown. read more

It was August 1, 1988. Remember the date? Maybe not, unless you’re a common sense, right thinking conservative. It was the first day of Rush Limbaugh’s nationally syndicated radio talk show. And it was the beginning of the new conservative movement. One that the everyman, like you and me, could be part of.
The show took off like a rocket. No one had ever heard such things, particularly from the boring, deadpan, AM dial.
And why did it become an instant an enduring success? First was the shock factor. People, me included, couldn’t believe what we were hearing. “Can you believe what that Limbaugh guy said on the radio,” was a common refrain.
And second, and more importantly, Rush gave voice to what we were thinking. It’s just that simple. Finally there was a guy in the media who actually thought like us – believed what we did, and was not shy about expressing it. In a sea of liberalism from the left and measured politispeak from the right, Limbaugh was breath of fresh air. read more
Liberalism Killed the Radio Star… and the TV star… and the Movie and Sports Stars, Too
Liberalism is fast destroying the entirety of the entertainment sector in the U.S. today, from movies and TV, to sports, to publishing. But the amazing thing is that these media sectors don’t care even a tiny bit that their popularity and finances are eroding faster than a sand castle at high tide.
A new poll by McLaughlin & Associates and the Media Research Center reveals a shocking statistic: Fully 44 percent of Americans are less likely to watch sports and entertainment shows “because they have become too political.” read more
In the world of sports reporting, there is no longer any doubt that politics are bad for business, yet ESPN can’t seem to divorce themselves from the democrats.
The “worldwide leader in sports” has long been playing politics on their network, joining the massive, futile “resistance” to President Trump that has been spearheaded by a number of liberal lunatics.
Beginning with their unethical firing of baseball legend Curt Schilling over his personal political beliefs, the network has turned into a harbinger of media malfeasance to come. [Actually – Rush Limbaugh was the first to get the ax.] read more

Recall that President Trump said, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners,” wondered the president, “when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b**** off the field right now, out. He’s fired. He’s fired!’”
I said that no owner would have the stones to stand up to political correctness like that. I thought they’d be too cowardly to do it, even though at least a few are probably thinking it.
Well, I was wrong and Trump was right. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones came out and said practically that. He said earlier this week if a player disrespects the flag and national anthem by not standing, then the player will not play.
And sure enough, fans loved it. Even I, a Jerry Jones hater, loved it. But the players and the Players Union were not quite as fond of the Cowboys owner’s exhortation.
“Local 100 of the United Labor Unions filed a complaint against the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday, alleging owner and general manager Jerry Jones has violated the National Labor Relations Act by threatening players if they choose not to stand for the national anthem,” writes ESPN. read more
