For any of you who might not yet have developed a strong distaste for the Minnesota Vikings, this may help.
Less than a week ago, I shared what coach Mike Zimmer had to say about the vicious and dirty hit by Vikings’ linebacker Anthony Barr that broke Aaron Rodgers’ collarbone. Zimmer thought Barr’s hit was “above board,” that it wasn’t dirty, and “We’ll never be a dirty football team as long as I’m here.”
Zimmer’s promise was short-lived. On Monday the league suspended Vikings’ linebacker Andrew Sendejo for one game for an illegal hit on Sunday on Ravens veteran receiver Mike Wallace. Sendejo was given an unnecessary roughness penalty by the refs, who couldn’t help but see that Wallace’s helmet flew off during the hit. Xavier Rhodes, the first Viking to contact Wallace, already had both of Wallace’s arms pinned from behind and was pulling him to the ground when Sendejo smashed into a defenseless Wallace, helmet to helmet.
The league euphemistically called it a “violation of safety-related player rules.” Wallace missed the rest of the game and is in the concussion protocol.
The NFL’s letter sent to Sendejo read as follows: “The violation was flagrant and warrants a suspension because it could have been avoided, was violently directed at the head and neck area and unreasonably placed both you and an opposing player at risk of serious injury.”
According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, Sendejo is already planning to appeal the suspension. I’ve since heard, however, that Sendejo will not be flying to London for the Vikings’ next game.
Here’s the play.
Here’s how Zimmer saw it: “I think the receiver took five steps after he caught the ball and I think [Sendejo] hit him with a glancing blow.”
Remember when Zimmer had all those eye surgeries last year? It doesn’t seem to have improved his vision a bit.
The hit on Rodgers was not dirty. Jesus Chris. This one dirty play doesn’t make the Vikings a dirty team. Just a more hateable one
Yes it was dirty. It was legal, but dirty. Barr put all is weight down on Rodgers with the intent to knock him out permanently.
I really give no fuck about the vikings except for that grape trailer park stench that comes in here that we all like to laugh at. It’s hard for me to get worked up about a team that’s largely irrelevant. I don’t care about Moss’s moon act, or that Favre played there, i’m glad he did, watching his NFCCG pick, and his entire 2010 season was more satisfying than i can put into words.
As far as the two hits, apples and oranges. What’s done is done(for now). The best revenge is laughing at their failure’s and better yet, destroying them in games. With the way things are going in Circustown Wi. right now, what do we have to lose taking a nice, legal (or not) extremely brutal hit on a queen player in week 16. Nothing to lose, and i could use the entertainment value. I nominate Josh Jones as the missle.
I hear ya. I want any Packer defender to target that fag-boy Theilen, and lay that MFer out, stretcher style. BIG MOUTH PUNK.
“legal (or not) extremely brutal hit” — ah, the hyena has shown his stripes…..
Yes you have..with all your unproven PED accusations against Packer players. Your unproven gay comments about Rodgers, besides all the personal low bush league shot’s you take at Rodgers. Then you…actually try to show concern about Rodgers injury, trying to get a few sheep in here to “think” you’re a good guy.
I’m no sheep. You can go fuck yourself.
Piffle Piffle Piffle….
There is a lot of correlation in observations as per PED usage of various Packer players, primarily Clay-mation Matthews. A review of all the incidences and evidence would be painstaking and time-consuming. Suffice it to say, just look at Matthews history of hamstring issues, common among PED abusers, a PED peddler actually implicating him in a natural non-threat/non-motivation setting (wherein he implicates himself at the same time — and, yes, the actual implication was of prescription painkiller request/abuse but if Clay is willing to do that he is then willing to PED abuse as well — a cheater is a cheater is a cheater). Or just look at how his performance plummeted once attention was paid by the NFL to his likely PED usage — he is off the PEDs and now we see the real Clay. Somewhat real. He is a still ballooned up but rapidly melting.
Packers have more PED violations than any other team, including three in the last two years.
Rodgers also has plenty of circumstantial proof of his nature. The “personal assistant”, a clearly effeminate fellow named Kevin, who was ALSO Rodgers one and only roommate even while Rodgers was making millions, and who was the first person Rodgers hugged after the Super Bowl win. And consider this in contrast: Have you ever seen Rodgers actually hug, let alone kiss, Munn in all their time together? Of that I do not actually care. But trying to fool the public with the Olivia Munn parade in order to manipulate his image and get more money in endorsements… well, that is also cheating. And it is a big lie to all his fans and a very poor role model for the youth of America.
(By the way, why do you think Rodgers went form being the projected #1 or #2 pick all the way down to the Packers at #24? I will tell you why: NFL teams do very thorough background checks on players, especially top picks. They hire investigators, interview even casual acquaintances, and even follow the player. I’d bet they came across Rodgers’ sexual activities. In 2005, looking for a face of the franchise and a team leader respected in the locker room, that certainly would have led to a big drop in draft position. It is the most logical explanation. Now, whether the Packers did not conduct similar due diligence or just did not care about that, I don’t know. PS Even Brett Favre quickly identified Rodgers as homosexual and teased him about it (in a mean way) his first couple years.
But, cheating is the Packer way. As Jerry Glanville once wisely stated, “If you ain’t cheating, you ain’t trying” as per the Packers mentality. The Packers were practically founded on a cheating way of life. They were founded in 1919 and kicked out of the league just two (2) years later in 1921 for… (dramatic pause) … CHEATING. They bought their way back into the league. http://yourteamcheats.com/GB
Eventually they came up with the stockholder scam, one of the greatest stock flim-flam scams of all time, one still be perpetuated to this very day.
I really do wish Rodgers a full and complete recovery and wish he had not been hurt. I would not change the Barr hit at all — totally legal excellent football. If I could re-write history I would keep Rodgers from sticking out his arm to cushion his fall, make him follow his basic coaching.
holy shit you packer fans are a bunch of fucking losers.
awe……it’s a “new” username…lol
Let it all out lonely boy.
You noticed, FuckdaPack? Me too.
There are a few exceptions to the rule, such as MMTTDCSUCK, but, yeah, a lot of bad people.
