Anthem Kneelers and Wife Beaters

FPM: Last year, 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster kneeled in disrespect to the national anthem. This year, he was arrested twice on domestic violence charges.

The anthem kneeler was arrested for the second time on Saturday, Nov 24, at the Grand Hyatt hotel in Tampa, Florida. He was charged with one count of first-degree misdemeanor domestic violence after allegedly slapping the phone out of his girlfriend’s hand, pushing her and then slapping her across the face.

Foster had been previously arrested for domestic violence against the same woman, earlier that year, in California. This time around, after multiple brushes with the law, the 49ers finally decided that they might be better off without him. And so the Redskins quickly swooped in to claim him.

Doug Williams, a former player and currently Redskin executive, dismissed Foster’s arrest as “small potatoes” before later being forced to apologize because of the outcry.

Williams had previously participated in an anthem protest last year.

Foster’s domestic violence crisis occurred only a few days before a video showed Chiefs running back Kareem Hunt kicking and shoving a woman in his Cleveland apartment building. Another man claims to have been violently assaulted by Hunt in a Kansas City nightclub back in January.

TMZ described the video as showing Hunt attacking the woman. “As more people came into the hallway, Hunt had to be restrained several times as he made advances toward the woman and other people. At one point, he appeared to knock two people over with a shove, including the woman he initially shoved. At the end of the video, Hunt kicks the woman as she’s crouched on the ground.”

“It was just a long night,” Hunt told ESPN. “I could have took responsibility and made the right decision to find a way to de-escalate the situation.”

Even though the actual assault had happened back in February, the NFL had mostly ignored it.

Hunt, like Foster, had disrespected the anthem, by kneeling, explaining, “It’s kind of a bad situation going on right now. I really don’t like to talk about it much.”

Media hot takes quickly tried to contrast the players with Colin Kaepernick, Nike’s anti-American celeb, but Foster and Hunt were also anthem protesters. No team wants Kaepernick because of his mediocrity  attitude toward any team that would have him. Defaming America is never the problem at the NFL.

NFL players joining in anti-police protest is natural because of the high rate of crime in the NFL.

Foster and Hunt are only 2 of 33 players who were arrested this year on charges ranging from drug smuggling to drunk driving to assaulting the elderly to sexual assault. While Foster got the NFL’s War on Women started back in February, King Dunlap was also arrested that same month for violating a protective order put in place by his girlfriend of 12 years and the mother of his two children.   MORE

  1. My father told me “don’t you EVER strike a woman…EVER”.

    He, my grandfather, or the ranch foreman would have knocked the shit out of me.

    I guess this POS didn’t have that type of mentoring.

  2. “Doug Williams, a former player and currently Redskin executive, dismissed Foster’s arrest as “small potatoes”……”

    In relation to the violent activity of the rest of the league, yes, he has a point.

  3. The left sought to kill footall (and feminizem men to render then sheep), and they did it by exploiting the degeneracy and stupidity and egos of some of the players.

    The league can be rebuilt, but not by the wimps running it now. They need a guy as tough and empowered as the guy who turned pro baseball around in the early 20th century.

  4. Once upon a time, a long time ago, this kind of behavior was a quick ticket out of the league. But that was because we are a racist nation. Now we are much more “enlightened”.

  5. We often see stories about lottery winners doing stupid stuff because of their sudden and extreme wealth. Pro athletes are similar, but usually much younger than lottery winners, typically in their early to mid-20’s when they sign that first big contract. Less life experience, some of them coddled since high school because of their “talent”. People like Tim Tebow are the exception, because they were raised right.

  6. I just love the people who rationalize watching pro football comprised of these dregs of society, these criminals, these people a rational father would air out with a Colt 1911 if they showed up at their house to date their daughter.

    Keep sniffing those jocks you idiots. Mmmmm, sweaty man balls in lycra spandex tossing, kicking, catching and running with a ball. Worship at the house of football, one of the only outlets society gives you for your murderous impulses. Lethal conflict is embedded in male geneography. And you’ve found an outlet that is, so far, approved by society. You can buy a jersey that has the colors and patterns of your choice of warriors. WooHoo! You can jump up and down, shout with excitement, then sit back down on your couch during the commercials that follow the struggle on the field.

    That thing in you, that football thing gets all worked up when YOUR team is up against their arch rival.

    That thing pales when you go downtown Baltimore with a pistol on your hip, strolling along where the streetlights been shot out, hoping somebody comes along wants to take your wallet. And hoping they try.

  7. Rather than hit the ladies, it’s much better to outsmart them. But that’s difficult for many of us guys to do.

  8. What we’re seeing is urban street culture moving up-town. When they did the same thing back on the block, nobody cared and nobody snitched. The Hoes knew their place in the pecking order. Those players get new money but keep their old friends and habits.
