The cops may be taking a knee but some BLM protesters think it’s a PR stunt. In another PR stunt, or act of solidarity, take your pick, NFL commissioner Roger Goodell wants somebody to hire Colin Kaepernick. But nobody seems to know when or if teams will take the field.

 

New Year’s Coach Drop

It’s that magical time of year when Cleveland Browns fans count down the dropping of the ball on the head of their football coach. So, out with Head Coach Freddie Kitchens and in with the new.

Here’s what Jason Gay had to say in this morning’s WSJ:

Consider the freshly dismissed Freddie Kitchens. Just a few hours ago, Freddie had to spend a lot of time worrying about the Cleveland Browns. Now he doesn’t have to worry about the Cleveland Browns ever again. Right there, that’s a life upgrade.

And he added:

In addition to Kitchens in Cleveland, the Giants parted ways with Pat Shurmur after two seasons.

The Browns parted ways with Shurmur in 2012.

Oops, the big ball just dropped on GM John Dorsey too. He’s the guy who hired Freddie as head coach.

Head Smash Remorse From Myles Garrett

Sunday was a bad day for Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph. He threw four interceptions and his team lost to the Cleveland Browns 21 to 7. But things could get worse. And they did. Browns defensive end Myles Garrett bludgeoned Rudolph in the head medieval mace style with his own helmet.

Remorse

So the No Fun League suspended Garrett indefinitely. But he’s appealing the suspension on Wednesday. And Commissioner Roger Goodell says the key for Myles is remorse.

“We’ll make a judgment on does he have remorse, does he understand why it’s not acceptable, do we understand what he’s going to do to make sure it doesn’t happen again. Those are the things that are going to be very important for us…If they get it and they understand that they make a mistake, and say, ‘I’m committed to changing,’ you’re usually on a good path.”

Maximum Security Instant Replay Interference

instant replay, kentucky Derby, Maximum Security

Maximum Security doesn’t know he finished 17th in the Kentucky Derby. He still thinks he won. But, after reviewing the instant replay for 22 minutes, track officials ruled interference and disqualified the winner for the first time in the 145 year  history of the Run for the Roses.

The instant replay showed Mad Max drifted out of his lane and hip checked War of Will. That caused a chain reaction slowing other horses. Thus the 17th place finish for Maximum Security. He also kicked mud on the horses behind him. Country House, a 65-1 shot, was named the winner.

Trump Maximum Security Tweet

President Trump tweeted that the ruling was “politically incorrect.”

Owner Gary West appealed but was denied. Now he says he’ll sue. But Max doesn’t know anything about that either.
