This Fist-Raising-“Statement” NFL Team Just Lost For 30th Time In 32 Games (And Benched Black Quarterback)

Swamp Drain

If there were a central authority responsible for licensing the right to make black power salutes as statements against racism, injustice, President Trump, mean police officers or whatever, they probably would be revoking that right from the Cleveland Browns right about now?

(Can we just call them the “Cleveland Clowns”? Or is that unfair to clowns? “Cleveland Something Brown and Organic”? You get the point…)

A week ago, members of the Cleveland Browns gave a black power salute during the playing of the National Anthem during their home game against the previously winless Cincinnati Bengals … which the Browns ended up losing, 31-7.

As the New York Times reported:

[A]t least nine [Browns] players raised their fists during the playing of the song. The players with raised fists were Christian Kirksey, Jason McCourty, Randall Telfer, Isaiah Crowell, Briean Boddy-Calhoun, Larry Ogunjobi, Kenny Britt, Dominique Alexander and Ibraheim Campbell.

It should be noted that Crowell made the news last year for posting, on Instagram, a graphic image of a black man slitting the throat of a white police officer, ISIS-style.

Anyhow, that brings us to Sunday’s BLM-NFL matchup. The Browns had a decent chance of winning, playing a home game against the New York Jets, who were considered at the beginning of the season to be, along with the Browns, one of the NFL’s worst teams but who had managed to get off to a 2-2 start.

Whaddya know? The Browns managed to lose this one, 17-14, to fall to 0-5. Combined with their 1-15 performance last year and their 1-10 finish to the 2015 season, they are now 2-30 over their last 32 games, basically the equivalent of two consecutive 1-15 seasons.

Oh, and by the way, the Browns sent their black rookie quarterback, DeShone Kizer, to the bench after his horrendous performance in the first half of Sunday’s game.

Kizer, by the way, has semi-participated in National Anthem “protests”/”statements.” (See below – #7.)

  1. More Karma to the athletes who bring attention to themselves only because they are black. Black power pissed me off in 1968 Mexico city and it brings the same emotion now. They can demonstrate all the black power they want but the real power is in the fans and owners who are, by the way mostly white. So much for the power. Respect your President and your flag.

  2. These player are stupid, they don’t even know what they are protesting .Dumbasses just protest that they are overpaid thugs that think people idolize them. I don’t understand people that still go to the games and watch this scum on TV, there are a lot of good Football players out there that would love to stand for the flag and what it represents.
