Tony Allen receives death threats from Chicago fans yet Joakim Noah doesn’t…strange

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on April 27, 2009

In case you haven’t heard yet Boston Celtics guard Tony Allen has angered some Chicago Bulls fans to the point of actually threatening to kill him. During the past two games in Chicago Allen has had more security around him than Michael Jackson ever had during one of his trials that involved the words kids and Neverland ranch.

The Celtics assigned a security detail behind the bench in case some Chicago Bulls fan was to attempt to shoot, stab, tiddy twist or wet willy Allen during the game. When asked about the situation by Boston Globe reporter Marc Spear, Allen become irritable:

“Is that what you’re going to write about? Is that what you’re going to write about?” said Allen, before walking away after being asked about the threats.”

Umm yeah asshole…sheesh no wonder people want to take some shots at you.

Apparently these threats against Allen have been going on for some time now. Chicago is Allen’s hometown. He also received threats when the Celtic traveled to Chicago on 03/17/09 however Allen missed that game due to a thumb injury. Rumors and theories are abound as to who is actually making the threats. It might have something to do with a bar fight Allen had in 2005 which resulted in one person getting shot in the arm.

Allen was in the fight that resulted in a guy getting shot and going to the hospital now his friends vowed to send Allen to the morgue. That’s the Chicago way.

If they are going to shoot every NBA player that’s been in a bar brawl/gun incident/late night happening, the whole league will have no players.

If you think people in Chicago are pissed now, wait until he reveals he wants to change his name to “Clean Elections”.

Broken Plays the Halloween edition

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on October 31, 2008

Happy Halloween

Broken plays are a collection of stories and links I wanted to write about it but could not find the time to do so.

Check out what the guys over at the 3rd Saturday in Blogtober are doing on All Hallow’s Eve SEC Style.

Scot Pollard posing with a fan showing off his Boston Celtic championship ring. God knows what would have the Celtics done if it wasn’t for the three whole minutes that Pollard played in the series against the Lakers. He reminds me of a balding Latino version of Morrissey.

Speaking of the Celtics, apparently ESPN doesn’t like Bill Walker. Here is a screen grab of Bill Walker’s profile page on ESPN’s site. Unfortunately for them it has that comment about him being a dick under local news in bold letters for all to see. It’s since been corrected.

Mike Hartline is a little upset about being benched as the starting QB for Kentucky.

“I’m disappointed. It stinks …You don’t ever expect to win the starting job and then lose it because the guys around you aren’t performing the way they should … The worst part about it, to me, is there was nothing that I could have done to get better on the practice field to change that decision. We’re not productive at other places. We’ve got to do something.”

College athletes need to learn two words: no comment. How hard is that? It’s not like they’re going to get fined for not talking to the media.

Let’s all take a moment to admire Colt McCoy’s girlfriend. She is the one on the left.

John Daly gets picked up at Hooters around 2:17 AM…gee I wonder why. Long John is straight thuggin’ with the popped collar orange jump suit. Then again he looks the same as he does when he steps up to the 1st Tee.

Here is yet another hilarious video Texas A&M video via the Aggie Report.

Glen “Big Baby” Davis is Either Mentally Challenged or Extremely Drunk

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on June 23, 2008

Somehow I think he’s partying and enjoying a NBA title way more than the core players. I hope Mickey Mouse rapes his ass for going shirtless in the parade and making little kids sick.

I Rooted for the Celtics so That Makes Me Evil

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on June 18, 2008

First off congratulations go to the Celtics for winning their first title in something like 20 something years. I’ll admit I was rooting for them. I’m not a Celtic fan but I was hoping they would win so players like KG, Pierce and Allen would get a ring. I also tired of hearing how the West Coast division was so much better than the East Coast. With that being said I’m evil in Jemele Hill’s eyes. 🙂 She is a fellow Detroit fan like me.

In her original column railing against the Celtics, Jemele Hill wrote, “Rooting for the Celtics is like saying Hitler was a victim. It’s like hoping Gorbachev would get to the blinking red button before Reagan.”

That’s not cool only the Yankees and Alabama should compared to Hitler. (I’m just joking Bama fans) Let’s all go to her website, this woman says stupid things and send her a nice message. What a tool this woman is. For punishment she should have to cover the WNBA for the rest of her life.

Hill’s piece was posted on late Saturday, and a spokesman for the sports powerhouse Ohio State and New York Yankees biased cable channel said yesterday that the crude comparison was edited out within hours.

The newly edited version of the piece, “Deserving or not, I still hate the Celtics,” is still online.

ESPN has released a statement that said:

“The column, as originally posted, made some absolutely unacceptable comparisons. We’ve spoken with Jemele, and she understands that she exercised poor judgment.”

“Both Jemele and apologize. Within hours of its posting on Saturday evening, the inappropriate references were removed from the site, and we are thoroughly reviewing the entire situation.”

When asked how Hill’s remarks made it onto ESPN’s Web site, ESPN spokesman Paul Melvin said there was a “breakdown in the system of editorial checks and balances.”

“We’re normally quite proud of the editorial judgment exercised here, but this was clearly an exception to that,” Melvin said.

Along with the statement, Hill was suspended yesterday as well.

I have watched Hill fill on for Jim Rome…her head moving around like a bobble head! Could not stand watching I really don’t like her.

Maybe I’m showing my age, but I remember when people who wrote about sports focused on the events and the athletes instead of focusing on how much more outrageous than their colleagues they could be.

Yesterday, Hill amplified on her earlier apology:

“In expressing my passion for the NBA and my hometown of Detroit I showed very poor judgment in the words I used,”

The funny thing is that in an April 2007 piece, Hill called for radio host Don Imus to get canned after his controversial 2007 “nappy-headed hos” slur.

“He is routinely offensive to people of color and women,” Hill wrote, “and if he needs to lose his job to understand that there is no place for that, so be it.”

Can we say hypocrite?

The devil’s advocate side of me says:

Granted, it was a dumb statement. But all she did was use a metaphor. She didn’t compare the Celtics to Hitler. She said that as a Pistons fan, it was as impossible for her to root for them as it was to believe something totally false, using her her Hitler statement as an example of that. Doesn’t compare with Imus, who used his statement as an actual description of the people who was talking about.

At the same time, this choice of metaphor in an attempt at humor is nonetheless extremely offensive. It trivializes the whole WWII experience and belittles the terrible suffering of millions. But Hollywood & the press have been doing that for years. In fact we had a comedy show (“Hogan’s Heros”) based on a POW camp that taught a whole generation to partake in this trivialization.

Yo Ma! Sit Your Ass Down!

Posted by Thomas the Terrible on May 14, 2008

Did anyone catch the last game between the Cavs and the Celtics? If so then you would have seen the “wrap-around” foul Paul Pierce committed on LeBron James. I was surprised it wasn’t called a flagrant foul however LeBron James’ mommy was even more surprised. Notice in the video as the two go into the court side area under the basket, LeBrons’ mommy comes to the rescue only to be told “Sit your ass down!” by LeBron. What a post mothers day present!
