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

Why do Chicago fans always jump to death threats?

Published

on

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.

Thuggish Michael Bennett Screams at NFL Camera Man for Doing His Job

Just add this to the pile of problems that the NFL has had to deal with in the last several years.

Eagles thug Michael Bennett was captured on video, Sunday, berating an NFL cameraman just for doing his job.

As he walked off the field Sunday, the defensive end began screaming at a cameraman who was just doing his job getting footage of the player during the Eagles’ loss to the New Orleans Saints.

With attitudes like this, the Eagles deserved to be knocked out of the hunt for Super Bowl gold.

In the video posted to Twitter, Bennett is seen heading off the field while a cameraman from CBS Philadelphia follows him. It is common for cameramen to follow players on the field if for no more than to get B roll images for later use.

But it appears that Bennett was unhappy with the cameraman for doing his job. Bennett can be seen angrily confronting the cameraman and yelling at him. Eventually, Bennett gets nearly in the cameraman’s face causing the media man to put his free hand up in the air to ward off the player. Bennett points the cameraman away and they part with the player continuing to berate the man.

Bennet, a long-time national anthem protester, has been given all sorts of passes by the media. This thug has a long record of being a distempered fool, but the media refuses to touch him. He was even given a pass for the slander he perpetrated against the Las Vegas Police Department when he claimed they abused him in 2017.

Bennett was in Vegas for the Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor fight in August of 2017 when he had a confrontation with the police there. He went national with accusations that the police racially profiled him, abused him, and illegally detained him. Eventually, the LVPD released police body cam video that refuted Bennett’s accusations. After heavily covering the accusations, the media quickly moved away from the story when the allegations were put in serious doubt. Bennett was never held to account for the claims.

Not only did the media move on from the Vegas police story, but the NFL also refused to investigate Bennett’s false accusations.

Bennett has had other troubles of late. The Super Bowl XLVIII player was cited for unnecessary roughness for his actions in the previous week’s game against the Bears. The league assessed him a $10,026 fine on the Eagles player.

Also, Bennett sparked a brief brawl during a game against Jacksonville in December. And he is reportedly penning a book he has titled, “How to Make White People Uncomfortable.”

Rapper Travis Scott Thumbs Nose at Calls to Quit Super Bowl, Claims NFL Donating to Social Justice

Travis Scott took the NFL’s halftime-show problem and used it to extort them into giving to charity.

Rapper Travis Scott has thumbed his nose at a growing number of black performers who have advised him to cancel his performance at the Super Bowl to show support for anti-American protester and former NFL player Colin Kaepernick.

Instead, Scott is pointing to his agreement with the league that he says will bring a large donation to social justice issues.

Rapper Travis Scott says the NFL has made a commitment to him to spend even more money on social justice causes as part of his deal to appear.

The Sicko Mode rapper says that he only signed on to appear with main stage stars Maroon 5 after the NFL agreed to donate a thus far undisclosed amount to an equally undisclosed organization advocating for social justice, according to Billboard.

Scott is now confirmed for an appearance during Super Bowl LIII to be held Sunday, Feb. 3, at Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium despite the mounting pressure from a number of black performers who have been working to get Travis to cancel his appearance.

A growing list of black performers has reportedly refused to join the Super Bowl half time show because of what they feel is the shoddy treatment the league has perpetrated against former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The former San Francisco 49ers player has gone unsigned by any team since the end of the 2016 season during which he created the national anthem protest.

Artists including Rihanna, Jay-Z, Cardi B, and Meek Mill, have all spoken out against the NFL and in support of Kaepernick.

Some reports maintain that Rappers Jay-Z and Meek Mill personally contacted Scott to warn him against performing at this year’s Super Bowl.

Pop superstar Rihanna also jumped in to attack the NFL over its treatment of Kaepernick and has reportedly put her foot down against any Super Bowl appearances to show support for Kaepernick.

Rapper Cardi B has repeatedly slammed the NFL saying she will not support the NFL because of its treatment of Kaepernick.
