Star Running Back Threatens To Quit After
Oklahoma State Coach Spotted In OAN Shirt

Original Article

Oklahoma State Cowboys football coach Mike Gundy was recently spotted wearing an OAN shirt while on a fishing trip. Cue the crybullies. Specifically, one of his own players, star running back Chuba Hubbard. [Tweet] That’s right, big tough football player guy is melting down because his coach is wearing a shirt that he evidently doesn’t like. ESPN glamorizes Hubbard by reporting: Chuba Hubbard, the nation’s leading rusher last season, tweeted Monday that he “will not be doing anything with Oklahoma State until things CHANGE,” in response to a photo of coach Mike Gundy wearing an OAN T-shirt. “I will not stand for this,”

Who does this punk think he is, colon kaepernick?? And what is this crap about "not standing for it??" Sounds like someone needs an hour of wind sprints up and down the stadium steps to readjust his attitude!!

Since the new public culture is to kiss black a*ss*s over every perceived grievance or hint of conservatism I would expect a tearful apology and public burning of the t-shirt by tomorrow. In the meantime football is losing fans by the thousands and those huge salaries will soon be extinct. Karma sucks.

Fine by me. If I never watch another football game ever, I'd be okay with that. Sports and it's advertisers are dominated by forces hostile to me, my family, and my faith. I will not give aid and comfort to the enemy. My husband gave up on sports a couple years ago. He hasn't missed it. More family and free time.

Take him up on his threat!!!! I hope the coach wears his OAN shirt, and a MAGA cap, as he informs him that he has lost his scholarship, is not on the team anymore, and is expelled from the university!!! This is an important lesson for these punks to learn about life. If you make threats, you had better have something to back them up!!!

He doesn't need to quit. That coach should immediately cut him. This guy is clearly a cancer just like Kaepernick and should never be allowed in that locker room again.

Gundy should try to keep him on the team, but don’t let him ever touch the ball. Just let him block for other runners. Enough of that and he’ll get the message.

The Coach has no right to free speech? But the disgruntled football player does have free speech. Laws or threats against free speech and thought will never force anyone with true freedom to give up their true freedom of speech and thought. Other wise you are living under Communist political tyranny.

That Boy needs a Wop up side his head. It amazes me that these young people really think they are in charge. So far many in the NFL are giving in to every demand these little Crybabies have. I would tell him to go sit in the corner and don't come out until you are ready to apologize! The coaches need to let the Players know who is BOSS! They should have it written into the Player's contracts that any show of disrespect will void their contract!

26, it's Oklahoma. Gundy was a star QB there and the large donors are oil and gas folks. They will never lure a coach as good as him if the get rid of him. He has already stood up to the press a few times before and won. IF they do manage to run him off they will reap what they sow. You cannot allow players to run the team. Just look at Mizzou to see what can happen.

A statue of Jesus Christ has been decapitated at a Florida church, as a wave of vandalism and arson at churches continues across the nation. Archbishop Thomas Wenski is requesting that the vandalism be investigated as a hate crime. The statue at Good Shepherd Catholic Church in Southwest Miami-Dade was found vandalized and knocked from its pedestal on July 15. “This incident has saddened the parish community,” Good Shepherd said in a statement. “It is too soon to arrive to any conclusion, but we have seen other churches vandalized around the country. We totally ‘condemn’ this action. We invite our community to pray for peace.”

Georgia’s Republican Governor Brian Kemp suspended all local mask mandates in an executive order on Wednesday. Kemp overruled all local governments that issued an unconstitutional, mandatory mask ‘law.’ “State, county, or municipal law, order, ordinance, rule, or regulation that requires persons to wear face coverings, masks, face shields, or any other Personal Protective Equipment while in places of public accommodation or on public property are suspended to the extent that they are more restrictive than this Executive Order.” Last week Kemp blasted Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms’ executive order mandating face masks in public. Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms is a Marxist and marched with Black Lives Matter militants last month.

Without fail, the media seems intent on making America out to be the lone failure in the world in the battle against the coronavirus. Many media outlets have described the United States as “losing the war” against the coronavirus because of the number of cases keeps going up. Axios, for example created a chart show that if all coronavirus patients (confirmed cases) were a city, it would be the third-largest city in the country. The recent trend of the media to focus on the total number of cases seems to be a result of the recent spike cases that failed to produce a similar spike in deaths.

We have been told repeatedly by health experts to demonstrate the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine and the other meds prescribed with it we need strict clinical trials. These are studies where some patients receive medication, and some do not. For many healthcare providers, this is a noxious thought if there is evidence to believe a treatment may work. How do you ethically deny a potential treatment to an eligible patient to conduct a study? So-called double-blind studies described above are the preferred method advocated by Dr. Fauci. These double-blind studies allow people to die in the name of “science” if a drug is effective. They are in the “control group.”

The National Football League celebrated its 100th anniversary last year. This should be a time of self-congratulation for the brutal sport, which has no similar counterpart outside the United States. The NFL's megaprofits dwarf those of other professional sports in the U.S. The Super Bowl, not the World Series, is America's national sports event. The league has survived all sorts of crises in the past. It was one of the first professional sports to integrate its teams, doing so in the 1920s. But the integration unfortunately ceased, and the NFL didn't reintegrate until the mid-'40s, becoming one of the last sports leagues to embrace fully a racially-blind meritocracy.

Berkeley, California has approved a plan that prohibits police officers from conducting traffics stops. The plan, proposed by the mayor and approved in a virtual city council meeting early Wednesday morning, is just one part of a major "defund the police" overhaul planned by the city, Fox News reported. The move to separate traffic enforcement from police work is believed to be the first of its kind in the U.S, according to the report. Instead of having trained officers conducting traffic stops, the new policy will send in unarmed civilian city workers to deal with traffic offenders.

Jared Polis, the Democratic governor of Colorado, thinks those of us who oppose scientifically dubious, constitutionally suspect and dangerously overbroad face mask mandates are “selfish bastards.” I think Polis is a pandering pandemic control freak endangering public health, safety, and sanity. There. Now that the name-calling is out of the way, let’s talk facts. Contracting COVID can be fatal or debilitating for the elderly, immune-compromised and physically challenged. But there is no catastrophic public health emergency justifying sweeping government orders and ordinances that would force healthy citizens to wear masks in an increasingly oppressive climate of manufactured fear — completely untethered from pragmatic realities and risk assessments.

Trump also called out Biden’s decades-long history of appeasing communist China. President Trump made the remarks during a press conference in the White House Rose Garden to announce an executive order rescinding Hong Kong’s special economic status after communist China seized control of the once-democratic city. At the event, Trump condemned the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) for oppressing the people of Hong Kong,

Nizar Zakka, a Lebanese national who was detained in Iran from 2015 to 2019 on charges he spied for the United States, lashed out on Tuesday at Biden after the former vice president accused President Donald Trump of treating Egyptian president Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi as his "favorite dictator."
