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

Why do Chicago fans always jump to death threats?

Published

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.

De Blasio And Giuliani Get Into Online Tussle Over Anti-Semitic Attacks

Published

on

Rudy Giuliani and Bill de Blasio traded blows online over the weekend about the anti-Semitic attacks that took place over the weekend in New York City. On Saturday, a man ran into the home of a rabbi and attacked folks at a Hanukkah celebration. This marked the 13th incident to happen against Jews in the city over the last several weeks, which has sparked conversations about what actions need to be taken in order to stop the hate and bloodshed. And that’s where things got heated between Giuliani and de Blasio Here’s more from The Washington Examiner: Giuliani, 75, took the first swing after the attack and condemned de Blasio’s leadership in the wake of the continued attacks. He criticized the current mayor’s decision to part ways with the policies Giuliani implemented as mayor, including “broken windows theory,” which required strict enforcement of minor crimes in order to create bottom-up compliance to stop severe crimes like homicide. The policy has been criticized by some because it can lead to distrust of law enforcement for cracking down on less serious crimes. He tweeted, “Possibly the worst Mayor in NYC, de Blasio, has watched anti-semitism rapidly metastasize, like a cancer, & is too unconcerned or lazy to ‘nip it in the bud.’ Otherwise called Broken windows theory, which should be brought back. A COWARD in that he has yet to condemn anti-semities in his own party who support BDS & similar movements, who’s main objective is to destroy the Jewish Homeland.” https://twitter.com/RudyGiuliani/status/1211492937453850625 De Blasio, 58, launched a counter punch Monday morning and accused Giuliani of anti-Semitism for his remarks about Democratic donor George Soros. The president’s attorney claimed that he was “more of a Jew” than Soros, a Holocaust survivor. de Blasio wrote on Twitter, “Last night while New Yorkers came together…

Charles Barkley Responds To VP Pence’s Criticism Of NBA On China: ‘Shut The Hell Up’

Published

Legendary NBA player Charles Barkley was not at all pleased with the criticisms leveled against the professional basketball league by Vice President Mike Pence who slammed the NBA for how it handled the controversy with China. In fact, Barkley was so displeased he told pence to “shut the hell up.” Here’s more from TheBlaze: Pence called out the NBA on Thursday for not standing up for Hong Kong. “Some of the NBA’s biggest players and owners, who routinely exercise their freedom to criticize this country, lose their voices when it comes to the freedom and rights of other people,” Pence said. “In siding with the Chinese Communist Party and silencing free speech, the NBA is acting like a wholly owned subsidiary of the authoritarian regime.” Barkley took offense to Pence’s stance and accused the vice president of hypocrisy. “First of all, Vice President Pence needs to shut the hell up,” Barkley said Thursday during TNT’s pregame show. “All American companies are doing business in China. … I don’t understand why these holier-than-thou politicians, if they’re so worried about China, why don’t they stop all transactions with China?” https://twitter.com/wonderousATX/status/1187512456320606212 NBA Commissioner Adam Silver also responded to Pence’s criticism, though his comments were significantly less harsh than those issued by Barkley. “We’ve adhered to our core values from the first moment. To the extent that there was any doubt about that, we reinforced that those are our core values. And I’ll just say again, once again, we’re going to double down on engaging with the people of China and India and throughout Africa, around the world, regardless of their governments.” Many folks have noted that the same kind of criticism that Pence has issued toward the NBA could also be turned on President Trump. Pence himself has openly supported the protests in…
