Over the past couple of days I have just sat by and watched twitter/Facebook explode with various opinions and thoughts so I decided I would start a new section called “Carbo’s Corner”. I don’t say much and not really the “face” of MIRS as my other two partners are but I figure it was time to get in the game more. This is my opinions ONLY, whether it’s homerish or not, and random thoughts. I would love feed back because, as you know, I’m always up for a debate, rant or whatever.
What is Make It Rain Sports?
First and foremost I can tell you that we are NOT a newspaper!!! Read that again… WE ARE NOT A NEWSPAPER! MIRS was created to entertain, make fun of, poke and prod at things other personalities wouldn’t dare touch. Yes there are times we present the news and have great guests on our show, but the ultimate thing is entertainment. If you want full time boring news there are plenty of those outlets.
NFL and new proposed penalties.
We all know that this is the big league with big boys playing big boy football. But we still kinda forget that these are mostly young men who don’t always think before they react. The NFL is a big money machine that spends a LOT of money on the talent. We as fans pay dearly for this in merchandise and even more in ticket sales. As anyone has noticed over the last few years ticket prices have gone through the roof.
With that said, there are some dumb things that go on with these players and they need to make better decisions in the heat of the moment. Stay with me here… These guys are paid MILLIONS of dollars to bring their talents, swag, etc., to the team in order to gain the ultimate prize, the Lombardi Trophy. However, what we see often during heated times is lack of discipline that hinders the whole team.
For example, say a wide out and corner are running down the field and the play results in a batted ball. The two of them should go their separate ways right? No, instead one starts running his mouth causing an altercation and receives a personal foul. This hurts the whole team, not just that player. My suggestion would be certain penalties should have monetary fines for that player. I know you’re think No-No, that is apart of the game… well yes it is, but these things happen a lot more than they should these days.
Think about this, not only are these guys players, they are also mentors, superheros to young kids, ambassadors for the NFL. Would you want someone that tries to fight the opposing team every time they are on the field? Do you want your kids to see that?
Monetary fines for blatant fouls or even multiple fouls in a single game by a single player for that matter. What do I mean about that? Well, if you follow the Saints you would know that our line is a little bit weak on one side and tends to have multiple false starts on the line. If this is done by one person, why not fine them. That would get their attention wouldn’t it?
Now as far as where the money goes, I say it stays in the franchise and NOT to the hands of Satan aka Goodell or maybe a local charity were the franchise is held?
Marshall Henderson/Rick Ray
Well well, my two counter parts have created such a sh*t storm with their articles I figured I would throw mine in the ring..
Marshall Henderson is a good player, I’ll give him that. He is an outside the box, 3 point shooting, parting/whitegirlwednesday player. Yes he can be good at times and you have to say, he can’t play well unless he can be Marshall.
Lets stop and think this through for a minute. In actuality, he is a kid. Kids do dumb things. Kids do odd things to get their game going. Kids do things differently. We have all been in that place before. It may have not been in the college sports, but we have all done dumb things and people let us be who we are. None of us figure things out till later in life. Let him be him and let it go. The truth is all Ole Miss fans want is the W.
The truth about the Ole Miss basketball team is they are just an average team without Marshall. It’s a young group that is still developing and honestly there would be a lot more “L’s” on the record if he wasn’t there.
Oh Rick, we know you are frustrated having to rebuild a team after Stansbury ran that thing into the ground. But please keep your composure during a game. You cannot let a 18 yrs kid get under your skin and pop off at the mouth. Yes I know AK is a drunkin lunatic but he hasn’t F bombed a kid.
Rick is a good coach and I personally believe he is doing a hell of job at MSU with what he has. Stay focused and he’ll have a winning program once again.
So let’s hear your thoughts/rants about my opinions. Come one come all.
