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.

See above.  He was done by the time he was on the Colts.  Had he been prime cromartie, no chance he would’ve been cut.

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.

    • Yes this is just getting even more sad.. going to Gianna's game 
    • So here’s the timeline of the Love to Colts rumors: -So it was reported (by the guy from the locker on Colts podcast) that someone had asked Ballard before the season started what QBs he liked in the upcoming draft and he specifically said Herbert and Love -He was mocked to us by Draft Network as soon as Luck retired -Ballard was supposed to go to the Utah State and Boise State game (originally it was reported that he was there and this caused a big stir). Accredited but didn’t actually attend -Colts had scouts at other Utah State games -Latest report from Colts media person was that we had scouts at 5-6 Utah State games this past season    So it’s not really leaks, it’s just connecting dots. All pro QB retires and is replaced by a QB who is backup quality at best and only gets a 2 year “prove it” deal. You add in the Scouting rumors and it’s not hard to see how this got out.
    • Your just repeating what I said. I said if it is the right guy.
    • Very sad. His daughter Gianna was on the plane too.
    • It depends on the player.  It depends on what type of value Ballard has placed on him.  If Ballard saw Love as a late 1st, early 2nd, I don't see him then entering into the exact type of QB frenzy he said you need to stay out of.     I'm just telling you what I think Ballard will do.  Myself, I'm not as high on Love, but I would trade up for Herbert.  I'm not sure Ballard would, however.
