Thug Life, Bruh.


What? This?? No, not a gang sign.  I saw Justin Bieber do it once and thought it looked sweet."



So as we all have heard by now DeSean Jackson has been cut by the Philadelphia Fighting Aces because he's a Crip or Blood or whatever gang he's apparently associated with.  Let me start by saying that I have hated this loud mouth hunk of turd nugget since the day he entered the league.  Being a fan of a team that isn't even in the same conference of the Eagles you would think I wouldn't give a rat's ass one way or another about this shitfaced cockmaster.  Not true.  Jackson has rubbed myself, and others, the wrong way from day one and is probably in the top 10 of my most hated NFL players currently.  What comes next will probably surprise you.

I have DeSean's back on this one.  What a fuckbag move by the Eagles.  If you want to part ways with DJax for whatever reason then go right ahead.  You have the right to do that since he's been a Grade A shithead from almost day one.  But don't just make up whatever the hell you please and paint him to be a worse person than he really is by filling everyone's head with blatant lies.  The guy is already going to have a more difficult time than most finding a new team than most free agents since his reputation around the league follows him around like that dust cloud on the gross dirty kid from Charlie Brown.  Just a haze of filth.  The Eagles don't need to assist in any hesitation other teams may have.

To be fair, in the official release statement, the Eagles mentioned nothing about the alleged gang affiliation.  But they didn't need to.  If the Eagles were truly just unhappy with Jackson's services, they could have released him weeks ago or traded him for some sort of compensation.  Instead they opted to get absolutely nothing and release him on the heels of a report stating the team was "concerned" about his gang ties.  It doesn't take a genius to connect the dots.  I know that everyone is still in self protection mode with everything that's been happening with the Aaron Hernandez case and that's fine.  But when the LA police department publicly says Jackson has never been a suspect in any gang related crime his name had been mentioned in, then you should probably listen.

And YOU were the ones who decided you were all done and cut him.  So shut the fuck up and let the man move on.  Don't roadblock that process and be a free agency cock block.  If the gang shit were true, I have to believe that there wouldn't have been six teams immediately interested in Jackson.  The truth is that DeSean Jackson was on his best behavior this past season and put up the best year of his career.  He wanted to be an Eagle long term and was vocal about that.  The reality is that he probably clashed with the Chipper or didn't fit into what The Visor envisioned long term for that offense.  That meant they needed to find a way to cut ties with Jackson and quick.  So they decided to all of a sudden pretend to be concerned about Jackson's off the field behavior and be gigantic douche bags about the entire thing.  That approach doesn't work when a guy came into the league with red flags, assholes.  I wouldn't say that I feel sorry for DJax but I can certainly see where he's coming from.

I never thought I would hear these words come out of my mouth, but DeSean Jackson has been way more professional throughout this process than the Eagles have.  I'm sure Jackson had someone on major damage control to formulate the Tweet he put out about how thankful he was for the opportunity to play in Philly and how the gang rumors were untrue.  But the fact that we haven't heard anything else out of him other than that Tweet is pretty remarkable, in all honesty.  It's actually bordering on impressive.  Anyway.  I hope DeSean finds a new team and a new PR director to give gray pubic hairs to and I hope that every time from this point on he absolutely eviscerates the Eagles whenever he plays them.  Dude got hosed hard.

I spent most of yesterday away from home and too occupied to check the interwebs until late evening. Imagine my surprise to find that in the middle of yesterday’s comments I briefly became part of the topic.

Seal, your comments directed at me seem to be more personal, more vitriolic, more attacking than the daily give and take usually found here. This, to me, is confirmed by Drew and G$ feeling the need to come to my defense. How you have managed to engender so much animosity toward someone you have never met and know very little about is beyond my understanding.

I had a work career than spanned 38 years and for all of those years I dealt with assholes on an almost daily basis. Bosses who were assholes; colleagues who were assholes; subordinates who were assholes; customers who were assholes. Now that I no longer work, I have the luxury of not having to deal with assholes. I choose not to deal with you.

So, I will continue to make The Money Shot my first stop every morning. I will continue to read the comments, because the juvenile name calling aside, there are some really good takes and debates. I just won’t read any of your comments. You may continue to attack and take your anger out on me, but I’ll never know it. You’ll just be another asshole pissing into the wind.

That might be Grumpy's longest comment ever!

Did the Indians lose last night? Trick question. No matter the outcome they're always losers.

Mr. Ace said...

Well...that was a whole lot of dumb. You obvs haven't read anything more than some PFT article IMO.

The Eagles tried to trade him for a month before dropping him.

The Eagles have NEVER mentioned gang affiliations publicly.

A New Jersey newspaper reported the gang affiliations. I'm sure the Eagles knew it was coming, but they didn't bring the issue public.

AND HE HAS 9 FUCKING TEAMS INTERESTED IN HIM. Dude is literally in the prime of his career. He isn't going to have problems finding a job unless he killed somebody.

All the Eagles did was cut him after they couldn't trade him. That's all.

And DJax is totes gang affiliated.

Mr. Ace said...

Grump, go cuss on Seal's Facebook page. You'll feel better.

Jeff said...

So a cop sighted that his record label is called "Jaccpot" instead of Jackpot since Crips don't put the letters "C" and "K" together because it means Crip Killer. If this is the case, wouldn't he have changed his last name? Must be part of his cover up since he does go by "D Jac" when he's spitting rhymes.

I only read on Tuesdays for the lulz. Horrible.

GMoney said...

I agree with Rando. This is such a pathetic smear campaign along the same lines of Boston leaking that Terry Francona was addicted to pain killers. OF COURSE they let this leak! They cut him because they didn't want to pay him 10 mill. That's all that they had to say. And they mos def could have gotten something for him.

It's just amusing to me that this god awful organization stands behind ACTUAL locker room cancer, Riley Cooper, and gives him a fat extension but dumps their best receiver because he's black.

Chip is a racist. OBVZ.

But DeSean would be more than welcome in DC. Come on down I-95 and beat this piss out of the Eagles twice a year, D-Jax. And if you act up, Ryan Clark or Brandon Meriweather will give you a concussion. Talk about a dirty secondary!

GMoney said...

But Seal and Grump HAVE MET! We can't end a great friendship over John Calipari's legacy, can we? Shake hands, call each other a fag, and get back to commenting on the reg.

Grumpy said...

I think the Eagles were pussies in this situation. This would be like G$ getting cut by his employer because he is a known associate of Ide, even though he had no part in Ide's misdeeds nor was he a witness to any of Ide's behavior.

Ace, you have to be pretty naive to think the Eagles didn't leak the gang affiliation concerns.

Randall Stevens said...

I don't remember the Eagles ever trying to trade Jackson. In fact what I remember is Jackson telling the Eagles if he's not in their long term plans to trade him or release him and the Eagles saying they were doing neither. Now, if that's wrong, please let me know. That's just what I remember hearing.

The Eagles stated poor work ethic and attitude as why they cut Jackson. Did that just pop up over night? And it's interesting how the Eagles cut Jackson only 2 hours after news broke the Eagles were concerned about his gang ties.

Grumpy, Show me where I personally attacked you and I will apologize.

Dont talk shit about a team, CONSTANTLY, if you cant take a fan of that team firing back.

I actually think this is a good post and I agree with you. I disagree Ace... you say ALL THEY DID was release him - where I obviously disagree. I think they played a part in ruining this guys (already not so good) rep. The funny part is too that they just extended a proven and known racist in Riley Cooper...

Jeff said...

But Riley Cooper has no known KKK ties

Mr. Ace said...

The Eagles were openly shopping him for two weeks before cutting him. There was a lot of talk about him getting traded to Carolina, as well as Jets, Pats and 49ers.

DJax was openly posting on instagram and twitter in support of a rapper on his label who killed a 14 year old execution style because he was from a rival gang. The Eagles didn't have to leak anything. He put it out there. And Grogsta already mentioned the police report about the label name. I see nothing wrong with the Eagles dropping him when it was picked up by a news outlet.

GMoney said...

This would be like G$ getting cut by his employer because he is a known associate of Ide, even though he had no part in Ide's misdeeds nor was he a witness to any of Ide's behavior.

Excellent analogy!

So, Ape, should the Steelers and Dolphins cut the Pouncey Bros because they very much support Aaron Hernanadez? Of course not because they aren't little pee pants bitches.

And it's a real cocksucker move to let him go NOW when most of the big free agent money has been spent (at least by the good teams...shitty teams always have money to spend).

I refuse to believe that the Eagles couldn't get a 4th or FIF round pick for a pro bowl receiver coming off his best season. BREAKING NEWS: ALL WIDE RECEIVERS ARE PRIMA DONNA ASSHOLES. This isn't new.

I don't know why we're complaining though. The Eagles just got MUCH worse. We should be throwing batteries at Ape in celebration.

"Grumpy, Show me where I personally attacked you and I will apologize."

How about you start by apologizing for being such a cunty little bitch.

Mr. Ace said...

I'm not happy about cutting him. But I understand the move. I would love for him to be a part of this offense. But I don't think Chip cared too much for him in the first place.

If the Eagles could have got value for him they would have.

Again, he has 9 fucking teams after him. He will be okay. I just read that he wants to play for the Redskins because he would be closer to the rapper Wale. Exactly what you want from your star player, right?

LOLZ at anon!!!! Hahaha love that someone that posts here doesnt have the balls to say who they are when they talk shit. Talk about the biggest pussy ever.

People talk shit and degrade one another here on a daily basis regarding sports. Name calling, crude jokes, etc... I do it once to someone that constantly puts down my favorite sports team and I get shit on. This is hilarious.

#TeamGrumpyFoLife ...I just may get that tattooed in Old English font across the top of my back.....or a picture of his face as a tramp stamp.

No doubt that the Eagles worked with the newspaper on that smear campaign. They had to go all out because of how their fans were going to take the news.

GMoney said...

Since I have no idea who Wale is, I assume that he is an upstanding member of the community.

DeSean may be a basketcase and his contract with whoever it is will be heavily guarded, but he would make the Skins offense incredible.

I have decided to rule on the matter of Grumpy v. Seal...

Grump: DEAL WITH IT. This is a place where we give and take TAEKS. You can't just one day decide to give and not take.

Seal: Relax. You've got a kid coming. You don't need to have an internet heart attack just because Jimmy Haslam is the worst owner in football, the Indians are a joke, and John Calipari is trash.

Grump did call some mistakes (READ: black youths) his loyal subjects yesterday. He is A-OK in my book.

Oh and fuck fantasy baseball royally this year. I have 7 (SEVEN) people on the DL that was either announced on the 30th (draft day) or yesterday.

Ide

GMoney said...

Reading rumors that D-Jax to the Skins is a "done deal". Oh man, I'll take that over a first round pick (not really but would still make us so much better).

An offense with an ELITE QB (we have two!), AlfMo, Roy Helu JUNIOR, D-Jax, Garcon, Andre Roberts in the slot, and Jordan Reed? Uh yeah, bring that shit!

Jeff said...

Ide, luckily for you, G$ is delaying the season an extra week. This is some shit Dut would do. It's not a good look, brah.

GMoney said...

I don't know what the fuck happened. I changed NOTHING from last season. Everyone will agree that I am the ELITE of the ELITE when it comes to fantasy commissionermanship...this is my first fuck-up ever. Dut's fault probably. His beard is getting too thick. Not groomed enough for Yahoo.

Grumpy said...

I will not accept your ruling. I stand by my comment. Go back and read his comments from yesterday. They are over the top, mean spirited and not in jest; he even made it clear his Miami fan comments were directed only at me and not G$. I'm through discussing this subject.

Drew is the best. He always has my back.

Ryan Clark=Redskins Super Bowl.

Having said that...Angry Seal is my favorite Seal. Always pushing the envelope. But next time instead of attacking the one guy that shows more devotion to his sports teams than anyone here, focus that anger towards the gutless turds who post anonymous. That's really where your anger should be directed, Bruce Banner.

The thin skinned pussy bro duo of Randy and Seal getting owned by anons LOL

^^^ELITE!

By the way, I've to get something out in the open. For years, you pussies whined about me not being on Twitter. I lose a bet to Drool and have to join. You said it was the greatest thing ever. O RLY?

No one told me how GOD FUCKING AWFUL Cakes is live-Tweeting Indians games. WTF is wrong with you? No one replies to any of these tweets, they are pointless ("wow" does not need to be Tweeted), and only serve to clog up everyone's feed.

Knock it the fuck off or I will be leading a rebellion to unfollow Cakes.

GMoney said...

Marquette hires Wojo! LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL!!!

Hearing that the Browns are making a push for D-Jax but Skins still the favorite. Interesting...

Seal, why don't you change your name to Boggs since all Randall Stevens seems to do anymore is SUCK YOUR DICK

G$...Nice HOT TAKE on Cakes Tribe tweets. Last night was THE WORST. You are completely correct in that "Wow" does not need tweeted.

--Drew

Grumpy said...

Oh yeah, Cakes live tweets Indian games. I just assumed he watches the games alone and it's his way of conversing as if a fellow fan was in the room with him.

GMoney said...

I'm dead serious about a group unfollowing if he keeps that up. This time it counts...GIVE IT A REST.

Here's a rule: you are only allowed five tweets per game (unless they are Walt Behrman related).

I also didn't enjoy "of course". THE FUCK DOES THAT EVEN MEAN!!!

Cakes called into Bruce Drennan's show and offered up a great question... http://youtu.be/mq2nCmk5XF8 LOLZ @ how stupid Indians fans are.

Prime99 said...

"No one told you" how bad it was?! It has been a topic of conversation multiple times here! I guess you didn't take us seriously?

GMoney said...

I never realized how serious it could be. You spend your whole life assuming that Cakes is pointless and harmless and then--BAM--400 irrelevant Tweets that no one understands.
