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.”

Petty New Paperback Aims to Expose Trump as Cheater…in Golf

Given the current state of our nation, the President’s golf habits seems like an entirely silly thing to write a book about.

Donald Trump Golf

As 2019 grinds forward, preparing to make way for yet another tumultuous election season, it seems that anything is fair game in the realm of mudslinging against our President. This shouldn’t be seen as a wholly new phenomenon, however, as Donald Trump has been in the crosshairs of a number of schemes and scams aimed at detracting from his presidency, or calling the legitimacy of it into question.  RussiaGate was merely the most obtuse and most widely reported bit of “resistance” schtick out there, but a whole myriad of other attempts to delegitimize and embarrass the President have been ongoing for some time. The latest, and maybe the pettiest of these attacks is now upon us in the form of an entire book about the ways in which the President cheats at golf. From pulling a fast one on Tiger Woods to exaggerating his handicap, Donald Trump’s alleged misdeeds on and around the golf course are the subject of a new book by former Sports Illustrated columnist Rick Reilly, “Commander in Cheat: How Golf Explains Trump.” Reilly documents dozens of examples of underhanded golf behavior by the president, transgressions talked about by pro golfers and duffers alike. “In golf, he’s definitely not exonerated,” Reilly told The Associated Press. “There’s been dozens and dozens of people that can declare him guilty of cheating.” What can someone expect from such a misguided missive? One infamous instance came in a 2017 round with Tiger Woods and Dustin Johnson, who is the current No. 1 player in the world. The president’s playing partner, Fox Sports golf analyst Brad Faxon, reported that Trump’s offenses included putting down a score that didn’t account for two balls he hit into the water on one hole. “You’ve heard so much about it, it’s almost like you want to witness…

LeBron James Discovers that Michael Jordan is STILL the GOAT in the Public’s Eyes

…And it wasn’t even CLOSE.

LeBron James may be the media’s favorite liberal athlete, but in the public’s eye, Michael Jordan still takes GOAT status, and it isn’t even close. James has been racking up more achievements every season and for the last few years debate has raged over whether James has finally taken GOAT status (greatest of all time) away from Michael Jordon. But while sports reporters and NBA statisticians may bicker over the particulars, it appears that the public still considers LeBron James a pretender to the GOAT. As Business Insider noted: Supporters of Jordan pointed to Jordan’s six championships, his undefeated record in the NBA Finals, and his overall influence in taking the NBA’s popularity to a new level as reasons why he’s the best. Fans of James point to his longevity, his eight consecutive NBA Finals appearances, of which he won three, and his overall brilliance on the floor beyond scoring. James is also still at his peak and passing Jordan in several statistical achievements. But a new INSIDER poll finds that James is a big loser in this barnyard battle. The poll of 1,082 Americans found former Bulls star Michael Jordan earned 66 percent of the GOAT vote while James only saw 10.4 percent support for top status. Others who found small numbers of supporters included Larry Bird, Wilt Chamberlain, Shaquille O’Neal, Kobe Bryant, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Stephen Curry. Jordan picked up support across all ages, not dipping below 54 percent in any age range. Granted respondents between the ages of 18-29 were more enthusiastic about James, then again many of those respondents weren’t around for Michael Jordan’s great career.
