Well ladies and gentlemen, here we are again for a Whip It Out Wednesday at YouGabSports (a couple of hours early). Gotta be honest with you folks... I'm pretty pissed off right now. At college football, at the Detroit Lions, and at Ndamukong Suh. So, without any further delay, I'll get this rant out of my head and into your ear-holes. Enjoy...
First things first, the biggest bitch on everybody's list, our "National Championship Game" featuring a rematch of that 9-6 crapfest between LSU and Alabama. I can give you the usual, recycled message about how this is bullshit, how the NCAA and the BCS are nothing but a pathetic cash-grab... but honestly, anymore, I just do not care anymore. Does it piss me off... hell yes it does. I used to be a HUGE college football fan. Used to truly enjoy watching games, rooting for my favorite and against my least favorite teams... but honestly, any more, does any of it even matter?
Look at what we have this year. A rematch of what was, frankly, a God-awful football game for the national championship. A team that lost, at home, failed to even score a touchdown against the #1 team in the country is somehow #2... and somehow gets a shot at a national championship despite not even winning it's DIVISION... let alone its' conference championship. Alabama acutally BENEFITS from not playing in their conference championship game! A team that took care of its' business in rivalry games, especially against their chief rival in Oklahoma, sits at home and wonders what else it could have done to prove themselves worthy of the all-mighty SEC (aside from the obvious beat Iowa State thing). Honestly though, what does it say about the regular season, about a conference championship, when you hand a title shot to a team that did NOTHING to deserve that title shot while everybody who actually took care of their business gets a hearty pat on the back and a trip to a different bowl game? The whole thing is crap.
Honestly folks, I am DONE. I'm done worrying about it... I'm DONE giving a fuck about college football until something is done here. The BCS is a travesty, a mockery of what was a once great game. Fuck the NCAA, the BCS, and every coach in America who actually voted for Alabama over Oklahoma State. The only BCS bowl game I will actually watch this year will be Oklahoma State-Stanford... and as for the rest of these garbage bowl games, the only way I'll sit and watch them will be if I'm a guest at someone else's home and THEY happen to be watching said games. Bye bye college football... let me know when you get a fucking playoff and the sport is worth watching again.
Now, on to the "big boys"... in some cities at least. Here in Detroit, we've got a group of petulant fucking children disguised as grown men putting on our unis. I'm not exactly a fan of Dominic Raolia... the Lions' starting center for the past ten or so years... but I will agree 100% with his postgame statements after that embarrassing performance in New Orleans on national television Sunday night... GROW THE FUCK UP. Here are his sentiments after the game...
Quick side note... LOVE the last "GROW THE FUCK UP" he threw in there for good measure.
Could NOT agree more. Look, these are grown fucking men on the field. It's bad enough you had the black eye on Thanksgiving with Suh stomping a Packers lineman after grating his face into the fucking turf. Now you get a guy throwing a ball at an opponent, shoving an official, and all kinds of other classless, clueless behavior on the field. Honestly if I'm Jim Schwartz, I take a long, hard look at sending a LOUD message to the entire roster. If it's me, I give Stefan Logan the axe. That's right, his ass is CUT... Monday morning as soon as the waiver wires open. The guy isn't that great a player... we grabbed him off the shit heap and there's another guy just like him waiting out there on that very same shit heap who'll come in and return kicks. That's all the fucking guy does... cut his ass. Show your guys you're not going to tolerate this shit... and if someone else steps out of line... if Pettigrew shoves another ref... suspend his ass.
Plain and simple, this team is in a playoff race right now. Lucky for you, the Bears are a fucking MASH unit right now without their starting backfield, and the Cowboys are, well, the Cowboys, and even the Falcons took a dump this Sunday. You're right where you were last week. Still on the outside looking in, but with a very beatable Minnesota team coming in and a wounded Bears team in front of you. It's pretty easy, if you go 2-2 over your next four, you SHOULD back into the playoffs. The Bears might not win again this year with the problems they have on offense. But if you keep playing and acting like a bunch of fucking clowns on the field, you are not only NOT going to make the playoffs, you are going to be a joke in the NFL once again.
As for Ndamukong Suh... the car accident by its self is not a big deal. Sure, you were driving like an idiot... but what we have here is this guy establishing a history of being a fucking liar. He lied about the stomp instead of manning up, he put on his fancy suit and headed to New York city to figure out just why everybody thought he was a dirty player, and now he's lying to police about a car crash. This guy is nearing pathological liar status the way he's going. Two things Suh... #1, quit doing stupid shit. #2- quit lying about it when you get caught doing stupid shit! It's a pretty simple formula. Learn it, know it, love it, and live it.
That's all I've got for ya tonight Gabbers. Thanks as always for reading and for any comments you leave on the way out.
