Posted on 09/12/2011 5:31:44 PM PDT by Doc Savage
My first thought on seeing the no-talent, crystal meth addict Fergie butchering the National Anthem was here was a junkie whore who Roger Goodell had NO problem with becoming a limited partner of the Miami Dolphins, while Rush Limbaugh, a patriot and the number one radio personality of all-time, is denied a partnership in the St. Louis Rams.
Rock stars >perform< the National Anthem (and horribly so), real patriots >sing< the National Anthem.
That’s a good question, but don’t expect an answer.
He may have been trained by the Chicago school of political deceit,corruption and treason, but, he ain’t no Chicagoan. Never was, never will be. And I pray he doesn’t go back there to live out his useless days. Preferably Hawaii, if anywhere in the U.S., that is.
I wonder which of Fergie’s talents Roger likes, junkie or a whore? Do people with real talent not want to sing at football games?
So, you are referring to somebody other than Sarah Fergusen then??
That’s the only Fergie I know...
Did she at least manage to not piss her pants this time?
The Irsay family, which owns the Colts, did as much as anyone to prevent Rush from becoming part owner of the Rams.
I suddenly really really truly hate the Colts
I’m with you......totally lost.
Please don’t call what Fergie does “Rock Music”. I’m not sure what you’d call it, but you can’t rock to it!
Real patriots are finding it hard to say the words “land of the free” with any conviction these days.
I feel times-a-coming
Well, Laz would hit it... me too.
OMG did she ever torture my sense of aesthetics... honestly, I have no idea who she is or was, but please somebody, hide the microphones next time she shoes up... does no one have the courage to tell her?
Fergie is the stage name of a female singer in the Black Eyed Peas, a pop group that’s had several top 40 hits since 2003 (you may have heard one of their songs called “I Gotta Feeling”). She’s also had several hit songs as a solo artist.
If you wish, you can see an example of her live vocal talent in this video between 0:30 and 0:45 seconds. . . of course, it all gets fixed up electronically in the recording studio version.
RUSH: The caller has just said the NFL is racist because in Detroit they brought in the Rolling Stones rather than use a Motown group. Now, I wouldn’t look at it that way, but some people might. I don’t happen to look at things that way, but obviously some people did. Jack Cashill, American Thinker: “The NFL’s Diversity Problem.” He quotes the Colts owner Jim Irsay: “’I, myself, couldn’t even consider voting for him,’ said Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay of accused thought criminal Rush Limbaugh. ‘As a nation, and as a world, we’ve got to watch our words and our thoughts.’” How do we watch our thoughts, by the way? Have you ever seen one? Jim Irsay must see thoughts. Anyway, “’Divisive comments are not what the NFL is all about,’ agreed NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. ‘I would not want to see those kind of comments from people.’”
We can kill dogs; we can shoot ourselves in nightclubs; we can run over people while we’re drunk, but we don’t want to do anything divisive with some people who think a certain way. Now, Cashill writes, “Before these execs start doing their end zone dance about Limbaugh’s exclusion from the NFL ownership club, they might want to address a major diversity scandal brewing in their own house. I refer here not to the exclusion of women from the NFL, although I could.” After all, we put them in fire departments. But the NFL steadfastly refuses to allow women in the NFL. “The difference, of course, is that fire departments can adjust their assignments to keep women out of harm’s way ... Football teams have no such cover. Everyone is visible. What is difficult to justify, however, is the veritable exclusion of Asian-American and, even more incredibly, Mexican-American men from the NFL. An analysis of Irsay’s AFC South division reveals a shocking lack of genuine diversity.”
Well, I thought that guy Neo (sp?) did a pretty good job at the Giants/Redskins game. Sang the song straight and well.
Let me say it again: Good job, Neo!
Speaking of NFL, I consider it and baseball and basketball one of the biggest examples of corruption and crony capitalism. To my knowledge NASCAR and golf are not yet funded by taxpayers.
The team owners are experts at playing the game of crony capitalism. They put politicians in their pocket and the politicians put billions of taxpayer money in the owners pockets by replacing 30 year old stadiums with new stadiums. The owners can then afford to pay their “prima donna” players many millions while the values of their teams increase by hundreds of millions all thanks to taxpayers who get nothing. The owners get new plush suites for their political buds who funded the stadiums with our money. The team’s owner net worth goes up thanks to taxpayers. Average taxpayers get nothing except more debt and expensive tickets that make the promoters more money. The game is rigged and we pay for the corruption. Both Parties are guilty.
No fan of Fergie here but a popular entertainer performing a one time gig is a lot different from an owner. You’re comparing apples and oranges.
Just another justification why I don’t waste my time or dollars with Goodell’s POS NFL
Haven’t missed it one bit. See ya
