Cromartie Believes Colts Cut Him for Kneeling

I wasn’t aware 2nd string QBs had major endorsement contracts.

 

The dude was on a downswing. He was gonna have a hard time getting picked up by another team. Decides to kneel to draw attention to himself and be able to lament those racist NFL owners as keeping him down.

 

All the while you have places like Nike just eager to show how woke they are to get money from people who think that by wearing Nike they support all these causes but Nike ends up just making a profit while marginally donating to some causes.

 

This argument is boring.
 

Cromartie is a joke.

 

He signed a 7 year $140 million contract with the Niners prior to being benched. Yes he was on a downswing, but he still had most of his endorsements from becoming a starting QB and making the Super Bowl and all that stuff.

 

Of course Nike did it to make money. But that's not what this is about.

 

For the record, I don't really care about Cromartie or that he was cut because that was a long time ago anyways

And he would’ve not received that money besides what he was owed because he was barely capable of being a backup. 
 

You know what, I know better. You’ll start going down some rabbit hole talking about logic arguments and I really don’t think people want to see that. So let’s skip it and we’ll all agree you’re the smartest person on an internet message board, yea? Good.

What bothers me most about Antonio Cromartie's case is this: 

 

You can't just show up to work, defy your boss's wishes, & go you know what? My head coach told me not to kneel during the NATL. Anthem. Ah screw him, I'm gonna exercise my freedom of choice, embarrass my organization, & then wonder they now refuse to pay me. 

 

Your job Antonio was to play football & intercept passes. You can protest whatever injustice you want on the weekend or your day off. You can't just go over your boss's head, refuse to follow their firmly worded suggestion, & not expect repercussions man. SMH. 

 

And another thing--If you make the decision to create 14 children, you better plan ahead & be in a position to provide for them sir. Use protection perhaps or inquire about a vasectomy in order to put a lid on future defendants. Eventually, you knew you'd have to pay the piper man. Get real dude. 

 

Being responsible for that many children is a massive undertaking. It might have been fun bringing them into the world, but at the end of the day, you need to grow up, be a man, & figure this out already. The time for deflection & excuses is over sir.

    Most of us HATE injustice. We saw it with the OJ situation: part of the country wanted justice for all of the times police overstepped their boundaries and innocent people got arrested or convicted. The other part of our population wanted a murderer convicted for killing two people. Both sides wanted justice. 
       Same is true for police brutality and social injustice. To me, these are individual acts done by individuals and protests against the flag are misguided. It’s saying this country stands for injustice and inequality and nothing can be further from the truth.

         We live in a country that provides the opportunity for all people to do well: Athletes, Doctors, Businessmen, Pastors, Actors and Musicians have reaped the benefits of living in this great country.

        I have no problem with anyone protesting individual acts of racism or injustice. But to protest the flag is misguided.

    • Well.. we have a fairly young team starting our 4th QB in 4 years.   Our division shouldn't be that tough, but we have titans twice. We play the NFC west.. best division in football.  AFC east. Bills dolphins patriots perhaps we can beat them for the first time since I was in high school (I'm 30) Ravens accidentally placed 2nd place last year. Raiders. And our random just happens to be the champs and Tom Brady. Who again.. we haven't beaten since I was in high school.   Fairly good assumption for the season. I have absolutely no expectations. Just always happy to see the boys play. But I won't be smashing any remotes this year and losing my cool. We'll probably be about 10-7      
    • Huh? So now his stats are inflated? lol. Saying he wasn't impactful in 2018 is just plain silly. He had the 4th most yards from scrimmage, and the 4th most TDs, in 2018. That's absolutely impactful. And it's crazy good for a rook APB.   And talking about what the next guy can do...... We didn't have a guy who could do what he did in 2018. At least in 2020 Taylor showed he could not only run, but also catch the ball at a high level. So arguably his need was bigger in 2018.  He was harder to replace in 2018 as we had no other true APB to replace his targets. Taylor was obviously a guy that could do both last year, and even had a higher AVG catching. I'm not saying Hines is not valuable to us. But his value did decline after Taylor showed he could be dangerous in both phases.
    • The biggest shocker, Rizzo was traded to the Yankees!
    • I agree.  The fact that he openly admits his struggles speaks volumes of his confidence and willingness to get better!
