Falcons Sent BOLD Message To Vets On The Back Of Their Helmets – Pissed Fan Responds With His Own

This is how it’s done!

Published

on

With the National Football League’s National Anthem protest showing no signs of stopping anytime soon, Americans are getting restless and even more angry with the level of respect that is being denied our men and women in uniform. The boycott of the NFL has been incredibly productive, however, for some reason most of the players haven’t gotten the message.

There does seem to be a glimmer of hope among a few of the players though. After much brooding, begging and the general population demanding their jobs, at least a few of the Atlanta Falcons came around, and the team made a statement for Veterans Day.

Independent Journal Review reported that the entire team would be adding a decal to their helmets, signifying that they were aware the world didn’t revolve around them. The team decided that in honor of veterans day, they would be paying tribute to fallen heroes and their families:

In a video on Twitter, the Falcons announced their helmets would sport special decals featuring the initials of different fallen veterans because ‘it’s bigger than us.’

‘It’s our way to honor fallen heroes for families that we want to show and demonstrate our respect to,’ head coach Dan Quinn said on camera. ‘On that day we wanted to let their families know that we’re playing for their fallen hero.’

Ahead of the game, punter Matt Bosher posted a photo of his helmet to Instagram and wrote that he was ‘proud’ to play for veteran William ‘Billy’ Koprince Jr. and his ‘amazing mother and father.’

‘Thank you for everything your family has given to our beautiful nation,’ his caption said. ‘Here is to keeping his amazing memory and ultimate sacrifice alive!’

Quarterback Matt Ryan will bear the initials of 29-year-old Capt. Joshua Byers, who was killed in Iraq on his mom’s 50th birthday.

‘He was known for making his soldiers laugh and providing morale boosts despite the chaos of war around them,’ Ryan said in a video posted to Instagram.

It would be safe to say that this is somewhere around the least they could do. After months of disrespect to the anthem, the flag and everyone who has served under it, it’s about time they start to make amends.

Maybe it was because of their own guilt, maybe it was the loss of fans, but either way, the job got done and our veterans can now feel at least some respect from the players whose livelihoods they made possible.

“As the players walked out of the tunnel and onto the field, 64 white circle stickers with black initials shined from the back of their helmets:

According to Atlanta NBC affiliate 11 Alive, the Falcons and AT&T will present the Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors, which supports grieving military families, with a $100,000 donation.”

At least one NFL employee wasn’t appeased by their tribute. The Falcons made this tribute in honor of Veterans’ Day, and that’s a great day to turn from your wicked ways. The players have had two months of making whatever statement they thought would be good for their cause, and the league has gone along with it.

No matter what the people said, they are still willing to let the players, most of whom wouldn’t know true sacrifice from a hole in the ground, act like they know about respect. Now, suddenly, they seem to be asking for a prize for doing something that they should have been doing all along, and showing common courtesy.

This was too little too late in the eyes of many, who are still avoiding football games like the plague. But for some, it’s their livelihood, and they decided they needed to stay. I’m not talking about the guys carrying the football, I’m talking about somebody you probably don’t notice very much. He might not be as interesting as a quarterback, or as well known as a wide receiver, but he’s still important.

I’m talking about the guy, that holds the monitor, for the refs to review the plays. Nobody really thinks about that guy, but we do see the back of his head.

“Now the guy holding the replay monitor is making political statements too???”

While most of us would prefer that football never got political, it has, and so what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. If the players can make a statement, so can monitor holding red hat guy. 

“There was a guy with the words ‘I will always stand’ on the back of his hat during that replay and CBS moves the camera off of him just enough to cut the message out of the shot. Gotta love the silencing of messages they don’t agree with.

He stands, not just on Veterans’ Day, but every day that the anthem is played and the flag is unfurled. Not because his job is in jeopardy, or because it’s a political statement, but because it’s the right thing to do.

So today, we salute you, red hat monitor holding guy. Here’s to you, and your sign that made all of us think about what we can do to help foster respect.

BREAKING! Prince Harry Can’t Marry Her! The SECRET IS OUT!!!

IS MARKLE GETTING THE BOOT?

Published

on

Prince Harry and Meghan Markle have a considerable problem on their hands. This could be the end of their engagement and soon to be married. If they don’t figure this out, then there’s going to be an absolute failure going on, and it’s sure to upset the Queen of England. Royal weddings are usually something pleasant to look forward to, but this could be different if things don’t pan out very well for Harry and Meghan.

Weddings often consist of a million different things that need to be planned. Everything from chairs, invitation, food, guest list, where people will sit, dealing with future in-laws, and all kinds of things you don’t even imagine until it’s time to get married. Then you realize how much is involved and the last thing you need is an extra problem added to the list of tasks you’re already dealing with.

That’s what Harry’s dealing with right now. He found out that his little Miss Markle was previously married, divorced, and that’s a significant setback for royal weddings. The Church of England frowns upon royalty wedding divorcees. They unofficially forbid people to marry someone who was previously married. It’s not set in stone or law, but they frown upon it so hard that people simply don’t do it. If they do, it’s very rare. At some point, people have to accept that not every marriage works out to be the wonderful storybook fairytale everyone woman desired. There have been times where royalty has married divorced people but is very, very rare. If Prince Harry goes through with this wedding to Markle, then this would be one of those sporadic incidents.

Think this situation can get any more interesting? There’s another catch. We’re not sure what Markle’s religion is. This is a kink in the chain of royal weddings because there could be restrictions on who royalty can marry when it comes to religion.

People reported:
“For centuries, divorce was frowned upon by the Church of England and members of the British royal family were forbidden — or at the very least, strongly discouraged — from marrying someone who was divorced.

The history-shaking controversy surrounding Edward’s abdication, as fans of The Crown will attest, has never been forgotten by Queen Elizabeth, who was just 10 when her uncle stepped aside — paving the way for her ascension to the throne. Edward married Simpson in 1937 in exile in France.

But times have changed.

In 2002, the General Synod – the governing body of the Church of England – voted to recognize “that some marriages regrettably do fail.” They added, “there are exceptional circumstances in which a divorced person may be married in church during the lifetime of a former spouse.” Any decision “as to whether or not to solemnize such a marriage in church after divorce rests with the minister.”

Times have changed and people realized that not every wedding blossoms into the most beautiful work of art. That’s one hurdle cleared for Prince Harry to put the ring on Markle’s finger. But what about her religion? Religion can be another roadblock for Prince Harry and Markle.

People talks about that too:

“In order to remain in the line of succession, members of the royal family cannot be Catholic. The vast majority are members of the Church of England, with the Queen serving as the head of the church. And until 2013, laws forbade members of the family from marrying someone who is Catholic. It was a restriction couples could work around: Peter Phillips’s wife, Autumn, converted from Catholicism before their May 2008 wedding. If she hadn’t, Phillips — the Queen’s eldest grandchild, who is 13th in line to the throne — would have lost his place in the line of succession.

However, in 2013, Britain modernized their laws. Now, those in the immediate line of succession can marry anyone they like, regardless of religion (provided they have permission from the monarch if they’re one of the first six in line to the throne). The rules regarding gender were also changed so that a first-born daughter would inherit the throne, irrespective of whether a boy followed. Under the previous primogeniture rule, any boy would take priority over an older sister.”

We haven’t been able to confirm Markle’s religion, so we’re not entirely sure if their wedding will be delayed, stopped, or go through due to religious reasons.

She’s either Jewish or Catholic, but people can’t pinpoint it just yet.

BREAKING NEWS!! Kathy Griffin SHOOTING!!

HER LIFE IS OVER!

Published

on

It’s all over for Kathy Griffin. Her career in America is officially over. We thought it was over before, but now it’s hitting the big time and what just happened to her has cemented her career six feet under like a fresh corpse in a Chicago shooting. Let’s backtrack a bit, and then I’ll tell you more about what happened that solidified Trump fans with the cheerful notion that Kathy Griffin is over and she buried her career!

Kathy Griffin was on tour overseas because she couldn’t find work in America. After she displayed a picture of herself holding a beheaded Trump head, the world lit her on fire via social media outbursts. It was demonic, and even some of her supporters were disgusted by her vile demonstration of free speech. Sure, speech is free to use, but when misused it has immense backlash upon the speaker. In this case, Kathy Griffin dumped her career down a toilet the moment she thought she was funny and provocative. There wasn’t much amusing or provocative about her beheaded Trump photo, but it was fouler than anything, and she certainly paid the price. Her downfall was so sad that even Squatty Potty flushed her.

After her rotten picture wrecked her career, she posted a shaved head sulking video that was virtually begging for a second chance. There’s one thing I know about comedians, and it’s this: some have it, some don’t, and she doesn’t. Her video was unfortunate and people could sniff the fakery in it as she begged for her career to come back, but she didn’t have much of a job to begin with. A one night gig for New Year’s Eve and Squatty Potty aren’t much to write home about. Here’s her video.

Now here we are talking about Kathy Griffin and the word “shooting,” and there are two sides to what happened. The first bit about her shooting is that she won’t be shooting any new material in America. The second piece of that Griffin puzzle is the reason why she won’t be shooting new stuff.

Kathy Griffin has told people that she’s scared to work in America because she’s afraid that someone will shoot her.  She said it. Straight from her mouth. Direct from the source herself. While she might be scared to work in America, the other thing is this – I don’t think anyone wants her to work for them anyway!

Via The Hill:

“Comedian Kathy Griffin says that she has been welcomed abroad, but wishes she could go on a tour in the U.S. “without getting shot.”

“They were thrilled to have someone come over and make fun of Trump,” said Griffin, who recently finished up a 15-country world tour, during an interview with Politico published Wednesday.

“I wish I could tour in the U.S. without getting shot — I know I can’t. I was in the middle of a 50-city tour when the tweet happened. It was canceled in 24 hours.”

 

Americans listened to Kathy’s fake apology, watched her leave America and travel across seas where she desperately found someone to let her work, and now she’s telling people she’s afraid to get shot? I don’t think there’s a legal gun owner who would be stupid enough ever to discharge their weapon at Griffin. People wouldn’t throw their own life away to make a point to a fledgling comedian who can’t write a joke.  If Griffin walked the streets of America, she would either be ignored or asked for a selfie in which someone might post on social media as a joke.

Her comments about getting shot in America is a stab at Americans. Does she think people care about her enough that they would shoot her and risk a life in prison?

Let’s be real with Kathy Griffin and remind her that the only thing getting shot will be her taking another selfie, but that’s about it.

She won’t be shooting any new material in America unless someone is desperate to hire someone.

She won’t get shot by any American who knows who she is because they won’t be stupid enough to wreck their own lives as badly as she ruined her career.

Maybe she’ll get lucky and shoot some content in a third world country if someone there doesn’t shoot her with a blow dart first.

BREAKING NEWS: Hollywood Star Just Found With Something Of Hillary’s On His Body – This Is SICK!

Published

on

Hollywood can use all the help it can get right now. Celebrities have been caught and accused in so many sexual assault scandals that most people can’t keep up with all of them anymore. For a while, it seemed like there was a new accusation every day where a well-known celebrity allegedly misbehaved in a possibly sexual nature many years ago. While some crimes happened more recently, the ones that occurred years ago went unnoticed because the alleged victim often cared more about their career, which makes us wonder who the real criminal is.

It’s no shock that another Hollywood celebrity was just caught doing something incredibly bizarre. What he did doesn’t fall in line with sexual assault, rape, or inappropriate touching, but it sure is strange, and it has many people shaking their heads. The Hollywood star showed social media how he put something of Hillary Clinton on his body and I laughed so hard when I saw it.

Pete Davidson, a ‘star’ on Saturday Night Live, got a tattoo of Hillary Clinton on himself. This wasn’t just any old Hillary Clinton. This was his “hero” and “badass,” Hillary Clinton. That’s right folks! The 24-year old Davidson now wears Hillary Clinton on his body.

It’s hard to make that kind of thing up, so here’s evidence and a post from Davidson’s Instagram account. We took a screenshot in case Davidson deletes the post and gets the tattoo removed.

 

I would be very mad with Jon Mesa because that’s relatively low skilled tattoo. You would think with all the money that Davidson earns on Saturday Night Live that he may have found a talented tattoo artist instead of getting something that looks like it was etched in a marble notebook by a fifth grader who is a future social justice warrior who spends his days drawing pictures of Hillary Clinton. This is not much different than the pictures Seth was drawing as a young boy in the movie Superbad. You can YouTube that if you’re unfamiliar.

Breitbart confirmed that the tattoo was real, and not a joke by Davidson, which sadly would’ve been his funniest.

“The tattoo artist, Jon Mesa of No Idols Tattoo in New York, confirmed that the tattoo was both real and permanent.

“Yes, its real,” he told Us Weekly on Friday. “Just did it last night at my shop No Idols Tattoo on Bowery and Grand! It’s a small one on his right leg.”

It gets better. Hillary Clinton responded and chimed in with a joke of her own, except her joke came off a little strange. She claimed to have a Pete Davidson tattoo for years. I know that’s just friendly banter, but could you imagine if she did and posted a picture of her tattoo?

“Thanks, @petedavidson, This makes it significantly less awkward that I’ve had a Pete Davidson tattoo for years,” she wrote. “But seriously, I’m honored. Merry Christmas my friend.”

Hollywood certainly pulls through in the clutch when it’s referred to as Hollyweird. For a male comedian on Saturday Night Live to get a tattoo of Hillary Clinton is just beyond bizarre. I’m curious what it is about her that makes her his hero. Of course, this could all be a long-winded bit.

This could be Davidson losing a bet.

This could be Davidson saying “hold my drink” as he attempts to go viral. And he almost went viral. While many websites are talking about it with their snooty noses up in the air and their laughter buttons being pushed, the guy racked in almost 50,000 ‘likes’ on Instagram. That’s pretty good for most people. However, that’s not much at all for a celebrity on one of the most well-known television shows in recent history. The fact that he’s on Saturday Night Live and only got almost 50,000 “likes” (as of now, the time this was written), is rather low and gives us some information to think about.

If he can’t muster 100,000 “likes” on a picture of him expressing his admiration for his hero, Hillary Clinton, then one of a few things is true.

  1. His fans don’t like Hillary Clinton. Davidson has 458k followers and could only manage almost 50k on tattoo post.
  2. His fans could be fake.
  3. His fans don’t like him, they just followed him in hopes to get a refollow.

I wonder what’s next for Pete Davidson. Will he get a tattoo of Bernie Sanders and a socialist America with 300 million poor people knocking on his vacation home door?
