Chicago Bears Place Kicker Still Getting Death Threats After Season-Ending Kick

Why do Chicago fans always jump to death threats?

Published

NFL

Chicago is the Windy City, we all know, but apparently some of that wind is coming out of the mouths of still furious Bears fans who are still sending death threats to Bears place kicker Cody Parkeyfor missing that one kick that could have won the game and sent the team to the next round of the playoffs.

Parkey and his family have been fielding death threats since his disastrous, game-losing, bungled field goal during last Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

As the game clock wound down, the Bears were down by only a single point, and kicker Parkey had that one shot to win the game with a last-second field goal attempt. But as Parkey, his teammates and fans were crushed when the ball bounced uselessly off the uprights and failed to earn the points needed. It was his seventh such failed kick for the season, but the most consequential. Later analysis noted that an Eagles player had managed to get a tip on the ball, just enough to cause it to miss.

The Eagles won 16-15 and the big W sent them to the next round of the playoffs.

Now the Bears will go into winter quarters, instead of the Super Bowl.

The 26-year-old Parkey did not try to shift the blame. After the game, he took full responsibility for the missed goal. “I feel terrible,” he told the media.

It was definitely a heartbreaker for Chicago. But while the Bears went into Winter vacation, some fans went into overdrive with threats against Parkey for the loss, according to FanBuzz.

Parkey’s kick was both the game-loser and the season-ender for the Bears, and, apparently, some fans are furious enough to let the player just how mad they are.

Now, be prepared. Many of these Tweets are very violent and filled with hate. Language warning:

But, in the end, after all the attacks the player withstood, it turns out that the play was re-classified as a block as game video shows that a member of the Eagles was able to get a hand on the ball causing it to veer off course and miss the goal.

Washington Redskins Officially Announce Name Change

Published

on

All weekend long rumors floated around the Internet that the Washington Redskins would be capitulating to the insanity of radical leftist social justice warriors and would change their name, as many in the liberal movement say it’s “offensive” to Native Americans. Never mind, of course, that the team was actually named by Native Americans, nor the fact that the logo was also designed by a Native American. Well, it turns out the rumors are true. The Redskins announced on Monday they would indeed be changing the team’s name. Sad times, folks. Sad times. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: The team, which has gone by the old name since the 1930s, announced on Monday that it will no longer use the term “Redskins” after critics have claimed it was racist and insensitive to Native Americans. In a statement team owner Dan Snyder and head coach Ron Rivera said they are “working closely to develop a new name and design,” which have not yet been revealed. The Washington Post reported that the team is unable to reveal the new name because there is an ongoing trademark dispute. Synder, who purchased the team in 1999, has repeatedly refused to change the team name and defended it in previous years, but calls for the team to change its name were renewed following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis police custody. Protests, which were mostly peaceful, have spread across the country, demanding an end to systemic racism and police brutality. Some cities are still having demonstrations six weeks after his death. You can almost guarantee that with the faltering of the Redskins to political correctness, pressure will be applied to other sports teams such as the Cleveland Indians, Kansas City Chiefs, and the Atlanta Braves. All of these teams use Native…

Nike Yanks Redskins Merch From Website As Team Sponsors Demand Name Change

The PC police are at it again, folks. With the racial tensions in America reaching new heights in light of the death of George Floyd at the hands of law enforcement officers, those who are obsessed with finding racism under every rock and around every corner have once again, for the umpteenth time, set their sights on the Washington Redskins professional football team. Nike, the world’s most popular shoe and sports merchandises brand, has pulled all products related to the Redskins team as sponsors for the Redskins demand that the team change its name to something a little less offensive. Good grief. Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Searches for Washington Redskins apparel on Nike’s website yielded no results Thursday night, the day after 87 investment firms sent letters to three Redskins sponsors, Nike, FedEx, and PepsiCo, urging them to end their relationships with the team if it did not change its name, according to Fox Business. “In light of the Black Lives Matter movement that has focused the world’s attention on centuries of systemic racism, we are witnessing a fresh outpouring of opposition to the team name,” the firms said to Nike in the letter. “Therefore, it is time for Nike to meet the magnitude of this moment, to make their opposition to the racist team name clear, and to take tangible and meaningful steps to exert pressure on the team to cease using it.” FedEx specifically holds the naming rights to the team’s home stadium, and the company CEO holds a minority ownership in the franchise. https://twitter.com/RyanFieldABC/status/1278872483605733377 Owner of the Redskins, Daniel Snyder, has been hit time and time again over his choice to keep the name of the team the same, as folks on the left claim it’s offensive to Native Americans. However, Snyder has refused to…
