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.
Ok, here is the video of #Eagles DT Michael Bennett walking off the field after #SaintsEagles playoff game confronting cameraman from CBS Philadelphia.

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.”

Hockey Coach Who’s Speech About National Anthem Went Viral Doubles Down On Remarks
The sports world needs more coaches like this guy.
John Krupinsky, a hockey coach who recently went viral after he demanded his players respect the National Anthem, isn’t backing down from his remarks, stating the reason he’s passionate about this issue is that he’s seen too much death and disrespect. In the video in question, Krupinsky — who also serves as a police sergeant, says, “If there’s anybody here who is going to be disrespectful to either the American or the Canadian national anthem, grab your gear and get the f*** out now because you’ll never see the ice in this arena. We don’t have that problem in hockey. We’re better than that, but there was no sense in wasting anybody’s time if that s*** was going to happen.” Here’s more from TheBlaze: The assistant coach for the Danbury Hat Tricks of the Federal Hockey League discussed the video on “Fox & Friends.” “I take pride in my country,” Krupinksy said. “I’ve unfortunately seen it cover too many coffins. I think we can take a timeout to give two minutes’ worth of respect to our soldiers, to our firemen, to your policemen. I don’t think that’s asking too much. I’m not going to apologize for asking players to show a little bit of respect when it’s either the American or Canadian national anthem.” He added, “Some people said, ‘Oh you wouldn’t let your players protest.’ I wanna be clear: My players would be free to protest on their day off. If they had something they wanted to do.” When the national anthem is playing, however, it’s an entirely different story. “I don’t think it’s too much to ask your employees to show some respect for the flag and for the country,” he reasoned. The world of sports absolutely needs more men like Krupinsky to help balance out all the…
Good Guy Shaquille O’Neal Sees Single Mother’s Social Media Post, Leaps into Action
Shaquille O’Neal was know for being a fierce competitor in the NBA, but it’s his big heart that has been on display this week.
Shaquille O’Neal may be one of the biggest basketball stars of all time, literally and figuratively, but that doesn’t mean that he’s forgotten where he came from. This week, word of O’Neal’s goodwill was spreading rapidly via social media, after the former pro athlete took the plight of one single mother to heart. Zach Keith, a 13-year-old middle school student who plays basketball and football, already wears a size 18 shoe. As the American average male shoe size is a 10.5, his mother, Brittany, finds it difficult not only to find a pair of shoes that will fit her son, but also a pair that she’s able to afford. Brittany, who is a single mom, posted a plea for help for her 6’2″-tall son on Instagram, writing, “if you can do anything to help I will be so appreciative.” Shaq then sprung into action. Upon learning of the family’s situation, CNN affiliate WGCL in Atlanta reached out to Shaquille O’Neal, who was more than happy to have the opportunity to pay it forward. “I reminisced back how that used to be me, my mom and my dad,” O’Neal told WGCL of Zach’s story. When O’Neal was trying to find size 18 penny loafers for his prom ensemble, his father eventually found Friedman’s Shoes in Atlanta. The owner of the shoe store, Bruce Teilhaber, gave Shaq a pair of shoes for free and ever since O’Neal, now a size 22, has frequented his business. “Bruce did it for me, and I just want to return the favor,” O’Neal said. O’Neal surprised Zach and his family at Friedman’s. There, Shaq generously bought the teenager ten pairs of shoes. The gesture overwhelmed young Zach, who was both surprised and extremely thankful for the help.
