Ron Rivera NFL football coach of the Carolina Panthers who formerly played college football at the University of California in Berkeley and was recognized as an All-American linebacker.
Apparently, this particular football coach decided to bench NFL baller Cam Newton and the fans, along with social media went cuckoo for coco puffs. I’m assuming he was benched due to his collared shirts and neck ties. I am not a football fan but when I ran across this story, I had to write about it.
Ron Rivera decided to bench the star quarterback for one series for a “dress code violation.” So many issues going on in the world and Cam Newton gets benched due to clothes? Can you say confused? Again, I am not a football fan but with the star quarterback being benched, it hurt the team. Its not like Cam was naked, or smoking weed or abusing a woman, he wore clothes that he is comfortable in, how did that impact the team?
Unfortunately, this decision hurt the team, Cam missing a the game definitely impacted the team as a whole. As the league MVP, him missing time hurts the entire Panthers organization along with his team mates.
What I’m understanding, coach Rivera feels like Cam Newton does what he wants and his message to the team was to penalize Cam, letting them all know he runs the team, not Cam. However, Cam is the driving force for ticket and merchandise sales. Coach Rivera treating the star quarterback as if he means nothing, lets the other players understand that no player operates outside team rules.
This coach is playing with fire, he can cause dysfunction between the players, Cam is the team and instead of benching him, have a conversation with him but the dress code issue was so petty. He really can’t afford to have a divided locker room, and he needs to be careful in his communications with his players because this situation could backfire on the coach.
Sounds like Coach Rivera may have a hard on for the nice looking black star quarterback. Cam is a professional athlete, so far, he seems to be cookie cutter clean and we have never heard anything negative about him. He is out on the field to play his game, professional football and I for one love the way he carries himself and the way he dresses.
Colin Kaepernick Graces The Cover Of GQ Magazine
Former NFL athlete Colin Kaepernick graces the cover of GQ Magazine and he looks good as HELL!! His Afro is everything, it makes him stand out and its important that he continues to follow his path, if you stand for nothing, you will fall for anything.
The former NFL player has a lot of support from his fans and even from quite a few celebrities. Ava Duvernay, who wrote the book “Queen Sugar,” which also a drama series on the network OWN produced by her, she was quoted by saying, “I’m just really honored to know him. He’s sitting there and I’m sitting there and I’m like, “Look at this brother—he’s doing better than any of us would’ve done.” A lot better. With a lot more elegance.”
Rapper J. Cole is always one to speak his mind and stand for issues, he is also quoted by saying, “And he wasn’t backing down. And he wasn’t afraid. He was just being honest. And it didn’t seem like he was looking for attention. It caught me off guard because, you know, nothing personally against him, I just didn’t know when I met him that the person with the biggest balls in sports would be him.”
And lets not forget the former baller’s beautiful girlfriend, Nessa who is a host and radio personality, she is quoted by saying, “I’m very fortunate that I have Colin next to me. It’s everything. We love each other, we care for each other, and we have to remind each other that, hey, we’re doing our part, we’re trying to make a difference.
I’m not much of a football fan but Colin Kaepernick is really making a difference, he won’t be silenced and the NFL needs to wake up, he has no plans of stopping his fight and with all of the people backing him up, the NFL may be in trouble. Wake up and the smell the coffee, its already burning. I respect him as a man, not just a black or white man, just a man who will not be silenced.
This what the baller posted on his Instagram: “Kaepernick@will not be silenced”
NFL’S Antonio Cromartie’s Reality Show
NFL Antonio Cromartie is currently a free agent, he has played for 11 years and now he’s on a break waiting to see if he would get picked up. In the meantime, the professional baller has 14 kids and 1 on the way with his current wife Terricka. Did ya’ll hear me? 14 damn kids, that’s a whole lotta kids, can he even take care of 14 kids and a wife?
I guess he can afford 14 kids and a wife, his net worth is 12.5 million dollars, talk about making coins, oh he’s good. He allowed the cameras in his home because he wanted to show the world that he isn’t just a professional athlete but he’s a husband and a father as well. He wants us to believe that his family is normal, but with 14 kids, how normal could that be?
“We’re just a large family that has a lot of fun with each other. We’re a very loving family,” Terricka tells PEOPLE. “Although my husband played in the NFL for such a long time, he’s a very present dad. We just want the world to be able to see him in his prime, doing daddy duties and having fun with his kids.”
Antonio’s wife Terricka is pregnant and ready to pop, they are excited about this sixth child, they are having too many kids and they already have their hands full with five bad a$$ kids they have now, including a twin toddlers. These kids would drive me to drank, especially that Jagger, he is just too extra.
Behind every successful man is a smart woman, with all of the kids they have as a blended family, wife Terricka put her thinking cap on and came up with the idea for the show, but Antonio, was a little apprehensive about allowing the world and the cameras into his home and his personal space. But, something or someone obviously changed his mind because they now have a reality show.
“I was hesitant just for the simple fact of bringing the kids on TV — exposing our family,” say Antonio. This is something my wife explained to me that she wanted, to show our family dynamic and how relatable we are. Once she explained it to me I was fully on board and it’s been a great experience.”
“The kids love it! Everything went as planned and went smoothly as possible. They had really big personalities to begin with. But now it’s a matter of them trying to outdo each other … I think it’s kinds just built their personalities up,” Terricka says.
“It was just a great experience for them and I think the world will be surprised by just how big of a personality they all have but also how different they are.”
The family actually filmed over the summer for eight weeks, and with Antonio on a break from football, he really learned how to be a hands on father which was difficult for him at first but he got it together. It wasn’t easy but he did the best he could with his children while his wife was expecting their 6th child together, so that means he has 8 other children out there? Damn, his wife is a good one, 14 kids is way too many kids for any woman to handle.
