This guy lost his job, and I don't know that what he said was any worse than what Butker said. Maybe a little cruder, but not really worse.

Well, I don't really think Butker should be fired, exactly. Other players have done crappy stuff and I've sometimes argued that football players don't usually claim to be saints and that some degree of rowdiness comes along with the personality type. I do hope enough people make his life miserable enough that his Handmaiden wife gets tired of it, tells him he's an idiot for ruining their life and dumps him. I suspect the "idiot" part may have already been accomplished.

Wife Of Kansas City ... Owner Says Viral Harrison Butker Speech 'Is Not Bigoted'
Tavia Hunt quoted the Bible while defending Butker's speech at a commencement, where he called diversity initiatives a "tyranny" and urged women to stay home.


:roll: She needs remedial vocabulary for the word 'Bigoted'.

His misogyny and anti-LGBTQ remarks have been widely reported. This not so much:
Comments about the Jewish people

n his 2024 commencement address at Benedictine College, he cited his belief that many first-century Jews were responsible for the death of Jesus by criticizing a bill condemning antisemitism. Yvette Walker of the Kansas City Star criticized Butker's speech: "The church long has held that Jews could not be held collectively accountable, since the Second Vatican Council in the 1960s. In 2011, Pope Benedict XVI affirmed this...and wrote there is no basis in Scripture for blaming Jews." Rolling Stone labeled Butker's comments as antisemitic, writing, "[He] promoted an insidious piece of antisemitic misinformation... Historically, claims that Jews were ultimately responsible for the death of Jesus have been wielded as an antisemitic trope against Jewish populations."
:obscene-birdiered: Pig.

Petition:
Demand the Kansas City ... to Dismiss Harrison Butker for Discriminatory Remarks
200,218 Signatures

I signed as an easy way to express my displeasure, but I also don't know whether Butker should be canceled. If KC retains him it won't ruin my day. It'll just make hating the team even easier.

Is this guy getting ready to be Aaron Rodgers v2.0?

"He said the post appeared to violate the Missouri Human Rights Act, which prohibits actions taken based on someone's religious belief."

These people never seem to understand the difference in "belief" and "behaviour/actions". No doubt the guy can believe what he wants but when he goes public, the public is entitled to respond. He might could have gotten away with the "mother/homemaker" part. A lot of very accomplished women might very well say they're most proud of their kids and raising the family. But when he starts with Biden-bashing and then calls gay people degenerates or whatever, it's clear he's on a political direction and starts raising that lightning rod a bit higher.

Nuns at Benedictine College respond to Harrison Butker’s controversial speech
The sisters of Mount St. Scholastica weren’t fond of the Kansas City Chiefs player's comments about women's role in the home.


... The sisters of Mount St. Scholastica, who describe their group as a founding institution and sponsor of Benedictine College, just shared a statement about the professional football player's speech, saying his comments don't “represent the Catholic, Benedictine, liberal arts college that our founders envisioned and in which we have been so invested."...

Video: 'UNREAL' Interception At NFL Practice On Wednesday

The NFL season doesn't start for another three months, but Quan Martin already made a submission for Catch of the Year.

During Wednesday's practice, the Washington Commanders defensive back made an absurd play that fans must see to believe.

Running across the field to break up a pass from Marcus Mariota, Martin leaped to tip the ball. He then reached both arms behind his back to secure the interception, all while still running.

Here's a look at the phenomenal play, courtesy of the Commanders:



It will be hard for Martin—or any NFL defensive back—to top that this season....

That's weird.

You can usually search the partial urls that I posted to find the original article or reprints. In this case:
jason-kelce-s-made-it-clear-where-he-stands-politically
patrick-mahomes-makes-it-clear-where-he-stands-politically
No need to remove the hyphens.

Anyhow:
Jason Kelce Made It Clear Which Way He Leans Politically
Patrick Mahomes Makes It Clear Where He Stands Politically (not "Clear")

Kansas City Chiefs' $40,000 Super Bowl rings appear to have typo

I read elsewhere that 400 rings were made. Idk why.
400 x $40,000 = $16,000,000

Opps.

Who Steve Young thinks could be ‘the greatest that ever played’

Tom Brady often gets called the GOAT of the NFL. But Steve Young thinks a different AFC quarterback — not named Patrick Mahomes — is capable of dethroning Brady.

On the “This Is Football” podcast, Young said that Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson could be “the greatest that ever played.”...

Both for Jackson's performance and the possibility that some dark horse will arise.

At 27 years old Tom Brady was already 3× Super Bowl champion and 2× Super Bowl MVP.
