Gene Upshaw’s Leash Don’t Dare Touch Gumbel For Telling The Truth
Last Updated On 08/22/06 GENE UPSHAW’S LEASH DON’T DARE TOUCH GUMBEL FOR TELLING THE TRUTH
UPSHAW WITH NFL COLLAR & LEASH
What Perfect Timing
just as the Coronation
of the New NFL Commissioner
is about to Begin
Out of the Blue sportscaster Bryant Gumbel pins the NFL and Upshaw Sunday night on his HBO show ” REAL Sports with Bryant Gumbel.”
Here is what Gumbel said …
“‘Before he cleans out his office,” Gumbel said. ” Have Paul Tagliabue show you ( Roger Goodell ) where he keeps Gene Upshaw’s leash. By making the docile head of the players union his personal pet, your predecessor has kept the peace without giving players the kind of guarantees other pros take for granted.
Try to make sure no one competent ever replaces Upshaw on your watch.”
NOW IT ‘S TIME TO CRUCIFY
BRYANT GUMBEL FOR
TELLING THE TRUTH
Who doesn’t know Gene Upshaw is a POOR excuse for a REAL Leader for the NFL players, most of all its Black players. And the selection of a new Commissioner is a PERFECT example. All Upshaw did was keep his mouth SHUT and then PRAISE the new Commissioner after the WHITE owners made their Choice. Not even a Whimper from Mr. Upshaw about any SERIOUS consider of an African American NFL Commissioner.
Now it’s to time to
PUNISH Gumbel on the NFL Plantation
for criticizing the NFL’s House Negro
How. The story planted on the Wires today is that Gumbel will not be allowed to assume his duties as the play-by-play guy on the NFL House Network for the 8 late season games it will be broadcasting.
Of course they will leave open the possibility IF Gumbel grovels, gets down and BEGS forgiveness from the New White Commissioner, apologies to Upshaw maybe just maybe the Benevolent Masters of the NFL Plantation will forgive him.
BRYANT TELL THEM
TO KISS YOUR
It isn’t worth working in the Big House if you have to humiliate yourself, play the Fool, tell lies or treat Gene Upshaw as someone who deserves anything but Contempt. Now for some Comedy ……
Here is what Tagliabue said about Gumbel’s comments ….
“I think things that Bryant Gumbel said about Gene Upshaw and the owners are about as uninformed as anything I’ve read or heard in a long, long time, and quite inexcusable because they are subjects about which you can and should be better informed,: Tagliabue said.
Then about Gumbel keeping his NFL job …..
‘”Having looked at how other people have had buyer’s remorse when they took positions, I guess they suggest to me that maybe he’s having buyer’s remorse and they call into question his desire to do the job and to do it in a way that we in the NFL would expect it to be done,” the commissioner said.
GUMBEL TELL TAGLIABUE
TO KISS YOUR BLACK ASS
Of course this story has Wings. It will be written about again and again and again in the coming weeks. Expect the Sport Media 98% White in America to lambaste Gumbel. One more good chance to kick around an African American and score points with the White Sports Bosses and their own White Editors.
What does Upshaw say about all this
Nothing of course
he’ll keep his mouth shut until
Tagliabue & Goodell
the guys who own his Leash
tell him what to say
