Thomas Jones appeared on ESPN’s ‘First Take’ to discuss his recent comments about Brett Favre hurting the team with his string of interceptions late in the season. In the video you’ll hear Dana Jacobson repeatedly ask Jones “would you like Brett Favre back on the team”, and Jones continually replies with “it’s not my decision”…. which basically means NO.
At this point, Brett Favre is going to retire or request a release from the team….. hopefully he’ll just retire.
The NY Giants & NY Jets will be moving into a fancy new stadium for the 2011 season and are currently in the process of selling naming rights to the venue. The Jewish community are in an uproar because a company called Allianz that contributed funds to the holocaust will possibly secure the bid.
“The company insured the Auschwitz death camp and had a chief executive serving in Hitler’s cabinet. The company is on the short list of those vying to slap their name on the Meadowlands stadium in New Jersey via a lucrative sponsorship deal.”
Now… the NFL is an outrageously image conscious organization these days. They don’t allow their players to endorse alcoholic products. They don’t allow their players to celebrate in the endzone. They have a strict personal conduct policy for employees. They have a strict dress code (players can be fined 10,000 for wearing the wrong color shoes).
It’s a crime for Terrell Owens to dance after scoring a touchdown, but the NY Giants are allowed to take money from a jew hating collective? What part of the game is that?
Where are your priorities Roger Goodell?
Update: The Giants have ended talks with Allianz.
“Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports that talks regarding the possible sale of the naming rights for the new Giants Stadium to Allianz have ended.
“The New Meadowlands Stadium, LLC is no longer in discussions with Allianz for a naming rights partnership,” said the president of New Meadowlands Stadium, LCC, in a statement. “We are continuing discussions with other potential partners for the new stadium and look forward to the summer 2010 opening of this new icon for our region.”
