    Giving the business

    IT’S ORIGINS ARE FROM THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE.

    THE TERM WAS USED BY PLAYERS AND COACHES TO DESCRIBE WHAT GOES ON DURING A PILE UP OF PLAYERS ATTEMPTING TO RECOVER A FUMBLE OR A LOOSE BALL ON THE FIELD.

    PLAYERS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PILE WOULD OFTEN RESORT TO DIRTY, CLASSLESS TACTICS

    Who knew? Another Chapter in the Book of Revelations by Pearl Revere

    Giving the business

    THIS PHRASE WAS FIRST STARTED SOMETIME IN THE 1940’S.

    IT’S ORIGINS ARE FROM THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE.

     It’s exact origins are unknown BUT THE TERM WAS USED BY PLAYERS AND COACHES TO DESCRIBE WHAT GOES ON DURING A PILE UP OF PLAYERS ATTEMPTING TO RECOVER A FUMBLE OR A LOOSE BALL ON THE FIELD.

    PLAYERS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PILE WOULD OFTEN RESORT TO DIRTY, CLASSLESS TACTICS in an attempt to recover the ball from another player while the referees were attempting to clear the pile to discover who had recovered the ball.

    OFTEN TIMES, PLAYERS WOULD RESORT TO PUNCHING, KICKING, SCRATCHING, GRABBING AN OPPOSING PLAYERS BALL SAC AND SQUEEZING, ETC….

    In the hopes that the player with the ball would give up the ball to try and stop the other player from “GIVING HIM THE BUSINESS”.

    THE PHRASE BECAME KNOWN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC IN 1986, DURING AN NFL GAME BETWEEN THE BUFFALO BILLS AND THE NEW YORK JETS WHEN REFEREE BEN DREITH CALLED A PERSONAL FOUL PENALTY ON THE JETS’ MARTY LYONS AFTER HE TACKLED BILLS QUARTERBACK JIM KELLY TO THE GROUND AND STARTED TO REPEATEDLY PUNCH HIM IN THE HEAD.

    Dreith announced to the crowd: “We have a personal foul on number 99 of the defense — after he tackled the quarterback, HE’S GIVING HIM THE BUSINESS down there, that’s a 15-yard penalty.”

    Player 1: “Who recovered the fumble? Did they make a call yet?”

    Player 2: “Dunno. There still in the pile GIVING THE BUSINESS.” … punching someone in crotch. the referee called a 15 yard penalty FOR GIVING THE BUSINESS.

    Thank you Roger Goodell and the NFL

    Enjoy

    Vanity ^ | 9/25/17 | pgyanke

    I’ve seen so much hate thrown at Goodell and the NFL

    that I thought I would give them a personal shout-out of gratitude!

     

    Thank you for giving me back my Sunday afternoons and

    Monday & Thursday evenings.

     

    Thank you for giving me more time with my family.

     

    Thank you for giving me more clarity on my own beliefs.

    What you disrespect, I hold sacred.

     

    Thank you for putting more money in my wallet as I finally

    cancel cable. ESPN was about the only reason I had it anymore.

     

    Thank you for showing your true colors in disrespecting the

    colors I hold true.

     

    Thank you for showing your true contempt for America before

    we wasted even more time and treasure on you.

     

    Thank you for showing that your outreach to veterans and our

    servicemen and women was only a cynical business calculation.

    We can now devote our efforts to those who truly care about them.

     

    Thank you for giving me an excellent example of what not to do

    as a business owner.

     IT’S YOUR CALL, YOU DECIDE.


  • NFL Kneeling on the Football Field?

    KNEELING TO PRAY ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD OR FOR NFL PLAYERS DISRESPECTFUL PROTESTS?

    A  HIGH SCHOOL FOOTBALL COACH WAS FIRED FOR KNEELING TO PRAY WITH HIS TEAM. KNEELING ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD TO PRAY WAS NOT PROTECTED BY CONSTITUTIONAL RIGHTS.

    SO, A SMALL TOWN COACH KNEELING TO PRAY ON A FOOTBALL FIELD WAS FIRED FROM HIS JOB AND LOST HIS LIFE LONG CAREER AS A FOOTBALL COACH.

    THE FORMER ARKANSAS GOVERNOR MIKE HUCKABEE SAID ON FOX NEWS, “I WISH THAT SOME OF THESE PLAYERS WHO GET ON ONE KNEE WOULD GET ON BOTH KNEES AND THANK GOD THEY LIVE IN THE UNITED STATES.”

    “MOST FOOTBALL PLAYERS ARE TEMPERAMENTAL. THAT’S 90 PERCENT TEMPER AND 10 PERCENT MENTAL.” DOUG PLANK

    ————————————————————-

    SO, NFL PLAYERS, INSPIRED BY THE RACIALLY MOTIVATED PROTESTS OF KAEPERNICK AT  NFL FOOTBALL GAMES,  MORE NFL PLAYERS STARTED KNEELING (IN AN APPARENT HANDCUFF ME POSITION?)  TO PROTEST, SHOW ANGRY CONTEMPT AND DISGUSTING DISRESPECT FOR AMERICA’S NATIONAL ANTHEM, THE AMERICAN FLAG AND LAW ENFORCEMENT..

    AND THEY GOT A LOT MEDIA  PRESS…

    INDEED, THE NFL CLUB OWNERS, NFL LEADERS, COACHES  AND THE LIBERAL PRESS SUPPORTED AND ENCOURAGED THE GROSSLY UNAMERICAN AND  INAPPROPRIATE POLITICAL AND RACIALLY MOTIVATED PROTESTS, BY NFL FOOTBALL PLAYERS,  PROVIDING A FIELD DAY OPPORTUNITY FOR EVEN MORE DIVISIVE DISRESPECT OF COPS AND FIRST RESPONDERS. ON THE FOOTBALL FIELD.

    Many fans at FedEx Field could be heard booing the players while they sat.

    President Trump  said they should be fired

    It is not about race or injustices, it about respect and appreciation for the freedoms and liberties we do enjoy

    Hooray for Alejandro!

    At least there is one principled football player who dared to go against his coach/team wishes and for good reason – he served as an Army Officer and wore the Ranger Tab. He took an oath, served honorably, and that actually means something to him and many across the country.

    —————————————————————————————–

    ACCORDING TO NFL LEAGUE RULES, ALL TEAMS ARE REQUIRED TO BE ON THE SIDELINE DURING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM, THOUGH THEY DO NOT SPECIFY WHETHER PLAYERS MUST STAND.

     ———————————————————————–

    AND, THE MIGHTY MAD SEATTLE SEAHAWKS WERE NOT ON THE SIDELINES, THEY WERE HUDDLED DOWN IN THE LOCKER ROOM, OUT OF THE SIGHT OF THEIR 12TH MAN FANS AND STAYED HIDDEN  UNTIL  AMERICA’S NATIONAL ANTHEM WAS OVER.

    The Los Angeles Sparks stayed in their locker room during the national anthem

    AND, THE NFL ASSURED THE LOCKER ROOM HUDDLER’S THAT THEY WILL NOT BE FINED.

    —————————————————————————

    A QUOTE FROM KEN GRIFFEY JR.

    “I CAN’T PLAY BEING MAD.

    I GO OUT THERE AND HAVE FUN.

    IT’S A GAME, AND THAT’S HOW I AM GOING TO TREAT IT.”

    LEADERSHIP MUST BE LIKEABLE, AFFABLE, CORDIAL, AND ABOVE ALL EMOTIONAL. THE FASHION OF AUTHORITARIAN LEADERSHIP IS GONE.

    FOOTBALL IS ABOUT LIFE.

    YOU CAN’T BE ANGRY ALL DAY.

    ———————————————————-

    WELL, let’s see how things work out for NFL LEADERS  – CLUB OWNERS AND COACHES

    President Trump  said they should be fired, and later tweeted Sports fans should never condone players that do not stand proud for their National Anthem or their Country. NFL should change policy!

    —————————————————————————

    NFL LEADERSHIP? My responsibility is leadership, and the minute I get NEGATIVE….  that is going to have an influence on my team.

    ——————————————————————

    A cautionary message to the NFL et al.?

    Owners of the Jacksonville Jaguars,  Bills, Lions, Dolphins, Falcons, Rams and Giants were among those who issued statements opposing the president’s comments. But many prominent owners, including Jerry Jones of the Cowboys and Woody Johnson of the Jets, were silent.

    —————————————————————————–

    Trump “If NFL fans refuse to go to games until players stop disrespecting our Flag & Country, you will see change take place fast. Fire or suspend!”

    A Quote from Babe Ruth…..

    “The way a team plays as a whole determines its success. You may have the greatest bunch of individual stars in the world, but if they don’t play together,

    THE CLUB WON’T BE WORTH A DIME.”

    “Some people believe football is a matter of life and death. I’m very disappointed with that attitude. I can assure you it is much, much more important than that.”

    YES INDEED, TO THE NFL, IT’S ABOUT A LOT OF $$$

    ————————————————————————————

    LET’S TAKE WA STATE SEAHAWKS FOR EXAMPLE….

    We Learned From Pete Carroll’s Week 4 Monday Press Conference

    KIRO News, Over an 8% drop in TV viewers on the SEA HAWKS Game.

    AND LET’S SEE HOW THE NFL PLAYERS  PLAYED WHILE BEING MAD? AND ANGRY ALL DAY?

      Media React To Seahawks 33-27 Loss To Titans

    PETE CARROLL SAID

     “WE’VE GOT TO STOP HURTING OURSELVES IN THE AREAS THAT CAUSE PROBLEMS,” Carroll said of how his team can find the type of consistency it desires. “We had trouble at the line of scrimmage on defense, we had trouble with the snap on offense.

    THOSE ARE TOTALLY WITHIN OUR CONTROL AND WE’VE GOT TO TAKE CARE OF BUSINESS.”

    ——————————————————————————–

    SPECIFICALLY THE NFL WA STATE SEAHAWKS

    YOU HAD THE GREATEST BUNCH OF 12TH MAN FANS IN THE WORLD

    The Beast Quake was an American football play that took place during a 2011 NFL Wild Card playoff game between the Seattle Seahawks and the visiting New Orleans Saints, then the defending Super Bowl champions. The play occurred in the fourth quarter, when Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch broke nine tackles during the course of a 67-yard touchdown run that ultimately provided the winning margin. The play’s name comes from Lynch’s nickname, “Beast Mode”, and the fact that, during and after the play, movement from Seattle fans jumping in celebration was so intense that it registered on a nearby seismograph.

     FOR THE LOVE OF THE GAME,

    THEY PAINTED THEIR FACES AND DRESSED UP LIKE CRAZY,

    THEY WAITED AND  STOOD IN LONG LINES TO BUY TICKETS, THEY BOUGHT SEASON TICKETS, PAID BIG MONEY, EVEN TRAVELING ALL OVER THE UNITED STATES, TO  GO TO FOOTBALL GAMES TO HAVE ROUSING, THRILLING  FUN.THE PATRIOTIC  ROWDY FANS WERE SEATED, LAUGHING, TALKING, DRINKING BEER, EATING HOT DOGS AND WAITING FOR THEIR TEAM OF PLAYER TO COME OUT ON THE FIELD.

    BUT NOT ANYMORE….

    THINGS WENT DISGUSTINGLY AMOK WITH THE NFL FOOT BALL LEAGUE AND THEIR PLAYERS.

    TO HELL WITH THE FOOTBALL FANS, AMERICAN TRADITION, THE AMERICAN FLAG, THE NATIONAL ANTHEM AND FIRST RESPONDERS

    NOT LONG AGO….

    AS WAS TRADITIONAL AT FOOTBALL GAMES  IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,  THE STADIUM IS SILENT, THE AMERICAN FLAG IS PROUDLY DISPLAYED THE FANS STAND AT ATTENTION, PUT THEIR HANDS OVER THEIR HEART, AND LISTEN, REMEMBER AND SING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM.

    THE FANS WERE READY TO WATCH AND CHEER AND JUMP UP AND DOWN AND THE FOOTBALL GAME.

    BUT NOT ANYMORE….

    THE SEATTLE SEAHAWKS FOOTBALL PLAYERS  STAYED HUDDLED IN THE LOCKER ROOM, OUT OF THE SIGHT OF THEIR 12TH MAN ADORING FANS AND STAYED HIDDEN  UNTIL  AMERICA’S NATIONAL ANTHEM WAS OVER.

    ——————————————————————————-

    SMALL TOWN FOOTBALL GAMES,  KNEELING ON THE FIELD AND PRAYING, MEDIA ATTENTION? NOT MUCH!

    THE FORMER ARKANSAS GOVERNOR MIKE HUCKABEE SAID ON FOX NEWS,

    TO HELL WITH THE NFL. period
