(Source – A bronze statue of Joe Paterno seated on a bench is planned for installation outside the Tavern Restaurant in November 2015. The statue, designed by sculptor Zenos Frudakis, is in response to Rodney Erickson’s decision to remove Joe Paterno’s statue from Porter Road in July 2012. “There’s been some level of frustration among Penn Staters with what happened with the statue at the stadium,” Ted Sebastianelli, one of the organizers of the project, said. “We wanted to come up with a way to honor Joe for all that he did for the State College community. It wasn’t just the university he impacted — it was the whole town.”)
This is sad that people still are in support of this man. The facts, as proven in court, are that Joe Paterno simply alerted the PSU Athletic Director of the atrocious actions Jerry Sandusky was doing, and that was it. He played dumb even though he was such an outstanding humanitarian and generous benefactor to Happy Valley and Penn State. How dumb do you have to be that to think this guy didn’t put football over the lives of children who were raped on his watch? Fuck Joe Paterno and fuck this idiot restaurant who is asking for MONEY on their Facebook page to build this stupid ass statue. Think I’m heated about this? Check out Boomer and Carton (mostly Carton) absolutely eviscerate a girl who represented the Penn State sports radio department a couple years ago while this was all going on.
(Source – Mike Holmgren acknowledged in a recent interview that he should have coached the Cleveland Browns during his brief stint as the team’s president. Holmgren, who guided his teams to three Super Bowl appearances during his 17-year coaching career with the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks, failed to build a winner during his two-plus years in Cleveland. The 65-year-old Holmgren recently told TheMMQB.com that he should have coached the Browns but that former team owner Randy Lerner was against it. “I really just should have coached the team, but [Lerner] didn’t want me to,” Holmgren told the website. Holmgren, who was hired by the Browns in December 2009, retained coach Eric Mangini for the 2010 season, when Cleveland went 5-11 for the second straight year. Holmgren replaced Mangini with Pat Shurmur, who went 9-23 in two years before being fired following the 2012 season.”At that particular time, I wasn’t ready to do it again,” Holmgren told the website. “I thought I’d be shortchanging the organization.”)
First of all, I’d just like to make it clear that I hate Mike Holmgren’s guts and wish he never came to Cleveland. At the time, I thought it was great he was coming on (I think I even compared it to Pat Riley and the Heat, but whatever) and thought this is what the Browns needed — someone who would be active in the day-to-day football ops department that knew what he was doing with a proven track record. 4 years later and lots of nothing later, the Browns are about as turbulent as ever having the team been sold in the past year to a guy who is being investigated by the Feds and is essentially (allegedly) broke. $1.2 billion franchise? I bet Jerry Jones or Mark Cuban wouldn’t pay what they do in the upkeep of their pet homes for the Browns. This is the most non-news ridiculous story to ever hit MMQB and ESPN. The headline should read “Holmgren Can See Into The Past With Excellent Hindsight, Miss Cleo Inquiring for Services” or something like that. What a shitty story and shitty guy. No kidding the Browns would have been better off with you coaching, Mike. No shit the the Browns probably would have won more than 2 games a year if someone other than Eric Mangini or Pat (FUCKING) Shurmur was the head coach. Really doesn’t take rocket science or psychic powers to see that. But no, you just rode your golf cart around Berea, sat back, and watched the Browns dwindle into nothingness–again. Kick rocks, Holmgren, I thought you were “retired.”
So the Cavs season ended yesterday with a meaningless win against a Brooklyn Nets team who was resting their starters in anticipation of the playoffs (PLAYOFFS?!) beginning in the next few days. To sum up the 33-49 debacle that was the Cavs season this year, here’s a pertinent video:
Anyway, this year was an enormous step in the wrong direction for the franchise and the owner that “promised,” (a la comic sans) that there would be some championships in the near future. The best moves the team made this year was firing Chris Grant and acquiring Spencer Hawes, but besides that it was a complete dud year.
-Luol Deng was a decent pick up considering they got him for nothing (Bynum) but he proved to be disinterested and wasn’t a significant contributor at all.
-Tristan Thompson is growing into a nice double-double-average kind of guy, he’s still a long way away from becoming a dominant 4-man.
-The Dion Waiters project is slowly coming to form. Dion was probably the brightest spot of the Cavs otherwise dreary season. He averaged 15.9, 3, and 2 for the year in 70 games. So, people claim he was hurt for a good chunk of the year but in reality he wasn’t, and needs to have a breakout year next year if the Cavs are planning on enticing any free agents or winning in general.
-Kyrie was Kyrie. I mean, what else can the kid do? He’s a 21 year old blossoming superstar with crazy talent and an expiring contract after next year. If Gilbert had any brains inside that slicked up greasy head of his, he’d offer the max deal and get Kyrie to stay here for a long time. No matter what Brian (fucking) Windhorst says, no superstar, Lebron included, will be coming to Cleveland if Kyrie isn’t here. That’s a fact. Did you guys see how well Kyrie and Lebron played together during the All Star game this year? It was poetic. It was beautiful. That’s a multiple-championship winning combo right there.
-And then we come to Mike Brown. The prodigal son who Dan Gilbert put so much faith in and got such little return on his investment. What a flop this guy is. Trust me, he’s a good guy and all, but for God’s sake this guy cannot be a head coach in the NBA. Plain and simple. His game plan is incredibly predictable and he might be one of the worst on-the-fly coaches when it comes to late-in-game play calling. His out of bounds success rate must have been the worst in the league within one minute in a close game. Absolutely pitiful. Granted, he didn’t have much talent on this team, Kyrie and Dion were both hurt, blah blah blah. Bottom line is, WINS = you keep your job, LOSSES = you lose your job. Sorry Mike, ya fired.
This is shaping up to be one of, if not THE most important off seasons for the Cavaliers. I think Dan either needs to fire Brown or get George Karl or Jerry Sloan in here to be a VP of Basketball Ops. Look at the Heat/Knicks, both teams who got significantly better when there was a great basketball mind at the helm. The Knicks didn’t make the playoffs this year but ended the season strong with Phil Jackson pulling the reigns. And the Heat, well, are the fucking Heat but Pat Riley orchestrated that whole “Big Three” thing and look at where it’s gotten them. Hopefully Gilbert’s son brings a little more of that luck to the lottery this year and our ping pong balls get pulled close to last. Wiggins would look DAMN GOOD in wine and gold…
