The pool of hypocrisy in America’s left runs deep. Very deep. Like Marianas Trench, bottom of the ocean deep.
Professional baseball player turned national anthem kneeling ingrate and Oakland A’s catcher Bruce Maxwell found himself on the business end of a police encounter, TMZ Sports reports.
It seems Mr Maxwell doesn’t know how to properly handle guns, and was arrested for aggravated assault with a deadly weapon.
Scottsdale police say the incident happened when Maxwell pointed a gun at a female food delivery driver.
The fiasco unfurled at Maxwell’s home in Scottsdale, Arizona, and police are not yet clear on what led up to the incident and subsequent arrest.
SPD says Maxwell was booked on charges of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and disorderly conduct.
Cops say he is in custody and awaiting his initial appearance in front of a judge.
Earlier this week, Maxwell — the only MLB player to kneel for the anthem — told us he was recently denied service at an Alabama restaurant by a waiter who disagreed with the protest.
Most of America is clearly fed up with these hypocritical, America-hating, national anthem-kneeling ingrates, and team owners seem petrified of the consequences if they put a stop to the entire affair.
Since it all started in the NFL, let’s concentrated on what they need to do…
what does the NFL need to do to redeem themselves?
This is the short list, and I’m certain you’ll think of other things that could be added to the list, but this is what I believe are the basics they need to do in order to regain fan trust and loyalty.
1: Fire Roger Goodell immediately. Fans hate him, and they hate what he’s done to the NFL. He’s turned a rough and tumble sport that reveled in its necessary violence into a politically-correct, pansy shadow of its former self. Goodell has to go, and the sooner the better. Someone like Mike Ditka would be much better, but whomever it may be is going to have to be a hard-nosed son of a bitch that won’t bend to snowflake’s demands.
2: The new NFL Commissioner needs to issue a sincere apology to the fans for the protests. That is a must. We the fans deserve it for being abused by the league with this protest nonsense. We are the customer, and the customer is always right.
3: All players will stand for the national anthem, and any non-football related behavior on the field can result in banishment from the league.
4: Institute a zero-tolerance policy for felonious criminal behavior by players. Literally ZERO tolerance. Get a felony, kiss your career goodbye upon conviction.
Here’s how that could work. Any player currently in the league, just to be fair, can be grandfathered in until their contract is up. Upon completion of the contract, they are banned from playing in the league. Put clauses in the rules, and in player contracts that are very clear. ANY felonious criminal behavior, or actions that are detrimental to the league will result in voluntary termination of the player’s contract and banishment for life from the league. Any guaranteed money will be pro-rated to the point of when the felony was committed.
I believe that if these policies are strictly enforced, the NFL stands a reasonable chance, with time, to regain their fan base, and as an added bonus, no one will be calling the league the National Felons League.
Everyone wins. Fans get to watch the game they love, players are held accountable, and America doesn’t get disrespected.
