Hip-hop culture hurting NFL - Page 7

post #91 of 134
Believe it or not there are many blacks who don't like hip hop. I think hip-hop is more for imbecilic teenage white boys anyway.

Let's just call a spade a spade. This isn't about "hip-hop" culture, it's about the blacks. The blacks are doing irreparable damage to the NFL.

This summer when I went home after school, I did get addicted to grand theft auto on my brother's play station but that's about it.

OK. Now we're getting somewhere. I think I see where you're coming from.

This is hilarious... being analyzed with someone who threatens to fight someone on the internet then wraps it in the veil of a joke with his "opponent" doesn't reciprocate the e-thug speak.

I'm afraid whatever categorization you're trying to put me into won't fit, especially a "gamer". Most nights in highschool I didnt get home till at least after 10, most nights midnight, so I'm afraid it's back to the drawing board for you.

(Sigh) Sorry kid, I can't help you if you're not going to take this seriously. But hey, I know it's all just "entertainment" to you.

Mike Tyson is living proof that there were emotional and intellectual cripples forged in the ghetto long before hip hops ascendancy. I think MC Hammer rocks!

Not me, but since you mention it I have a problem with the Manny Ramirez culture. Maybe we should just refer to that as the "Dip Shit" culture?

Most teams would kill for a "problem" like Romanowski. Let's see, most consecutive games played by a linebacker, 4 Super Bowl rings, and almost every player in the NFL was and probably still is, afraid of him. I'm a Lions fan, and we would have killed for a "problem" like that.

I was just saying that the NFL is not hurting at all. It is THE game that Americans are interested in, that's all.

Its a beautiful thing to see the clarity and force of reason deftly employed against the snarling hobgoblins of fear and ignorance.

Get him a place to stay
And I found out
He goin' 'round town
Tellin' ev'rybody that he
He got my wife

Then I gets mad
I goes to the cat
Like a good guy should
I said, 'Look man
'I'm gonna warn, you just one time'
Next time I warn you'
'I'm gonna use my gun'

'Cause I'm mad, I'm bad, like Jesse James

I'm so mad, I'm so mad.
I'm gonna ruin you this mornin'.
I've got three boys
Do my dirty work
Now, you don't see me
I'm the big boss
I do the payin' off
After they take care of you

In their on way
They may shoot you
They may cut you.
They may drown you
I just don't know
I don't care
Long as they take care of you

Than to be worried outta my mind

The Mayans "ruined" the sports predecessor, and in turn that violence was brought to England and "ruined" as football, giving us present day Calcio.

Also, who gives a shit what kind of personal lives professional athletes lead? These are people who get paid millions of dollars for kicking a piece of inflated leather around a patch of grass. If people consider them role models the problem is with those people, not the athletes themselves.

That right there is some razor-sharp satire. I think we have the next Vonnegut on our hands.

Also, as Violinist points out, I should've said blues rather than jazz regarding misogyny. As far as Wagner goes, biographers do debate the exact nature of his personal beliefs, but it's clear that a lot of his work is concerned with the creation/synthesis of a fairly supremacist mythology for the German people.
