Goodell Makes Bogus Concessions On Blackouts

Posted in Detroit Lions, Fire 'Em, Hollers with tags , , , , on September 11, 2009 by bigoranged

I still can’t believe the tone Goodell is taking when he talks about making concessions for the fans.  I was just reading this NBC sports article about some new blackout concessions the NFL is making for the fans.

All blacked out games will be available in the local markets on a tape delayed basis through NFL.com .  They’ll also be available on tape delay on The Red Zone Channel on DirecTV.  For more details read the article above.

The article goes on to say…

“Though some will still claim that the NFL should remove the blackout rule entirely, the significance of this concession should not be underestimated. The league zealously guards its game footage; the fact that the NFL is willing to re-broadcast the blacked-out games via NFL.com at no charge represents an unprecedented gesture.”

The fat cats just don’t get it!  The significance of this concession should not be underestimated?  The fact that the NFL is willing to rebroadcast  games…at no charge represents an unprecedented gesture?  Seriously!

What, by making these ‘gestures’ they’re all the sudden on the verge of total economic collapse?  By making these “gestures” they’re hanging off the cliff of economic security that will plummet them to a bottomless abyss of no cash on hand?  Really!

These gestures aren’t symbolic of caring about the fans. These gestures are more like a symbolic middle-finger that is insensitive to the love and sacrifice fans put in to the NFL product.

This is like Bernie Madoff offering his victims a $10 gift certificate to Wal-mart for all the trouble he caused them.

Listen, as a Detroit Lions fan who won’t ever have a blackout game, this issue really doesn’t influence me. Yet it really gets my blood boiling when I see the rich fat-cats, snubbing their loyal fans and making paper thing concessions under the guise of really being sincere and caring about the fans.

Fien’dish

Casey Fien dished up a nice loss for our Detroit Tigers against the Indians last night. The guy didn’t even technically throw a third of an inning and he gets a loss!  Send him back to college so he can learn to at least get one batter out.

And what was up with Edwin Jackson?  Four innings? Eight hits?  Is he drinking the Dontrelle Willis sauce now?

Send Armando To The Showers

Curtis Granderson continued to ride his one way ticket to the Hall Of Fame for our Detroit Tigers last night with is lead off home run.  The rest  of the team, needs to be sent to the showers.

Brand Inge is the prototypical one half wonder who’s knees make him another injured philly that needs to be put down.  Armando is trash once again.  Reminds me much of Gary Knotts.  He’ll have a nice string of wins then totally blow the rest of the year.

The season is clearly over.  These bums can only torture us for two more months.

Baseball Team Or Nursing Home?

Posted in Detroit Tigers, Fire 'Em, Hollers with tags , , , , on July 27, 2009 by bigoranged

Are the Detroit Tigers a baseball team or a nursing home?  Between Magglio Ordonez, Carlos Guillen, Dontrelle Willis and Joel Zumaya, I’m starting to wonder.

Maybe this team should cancel batting practice in favor of evening sessions of bingo and arts n crafts time?

It’s time to clean house and get rid of the old injured horses.  The longer we hold on to them, the longer we’ll lose their value and fail to regroup as a team.

Green Jello and bingo time is nice, but that’s for the nursing home, not the dugout.

Fire Pocello Send Him Down

Dave Dombrowski needs to be released from this organization. Our Detroit Tigers lost today 5-1 to the Chicago White Sox.  What ever idiot thought Porcello was ready for the majors is fulla of garbage.
There are no roots or hire ’em calls for today’s game. These bums couldn’t hit or pitch.  Release the whole squad and start rebuilding for next year.  Fire Inge, fire Cabrera, get a new bullpen and release Porcello. This team is crap.

Rodney Fingers

Great job by our all star calibre reliever Fernando Rodney tonight.  He came in, got the win and defeated those shmucks.

Our Detroit Tigers continue to dominate everything they face this year. Our line-up full of heroes and all stars came out tonight and dominated once again. Good job boys. Keep it up.  Those bats are unstoppable this year.
