Drew Brees isn’t mad. Douchebags are hygienic products; he takes that as a compliment. [via @ChrisWarcraft]
I guess Brady has evolved beyond being a douchebag
Doesn’t having “Warcraft” in one’s Twitter handle disqualify one from calling others “douchebags”?
Uh, Oh, someones gonna get kicked in the nuts a lot this year.
What an awesome reference. +1
@K-Mart: No, Brady has not evolved beyond douchedom (I am a Pats fan). I will never forgive him for what he has done since marrying the professional scarecrow, but in this instance he doesn’t seem to be feeding from the trough quite as much as the others. He’s still a douche, though. But I still hope he throws 50 TD’s this year.
That might be difficult without one of the greatest deep threats in football history in his prime to throw to.
//I eagerly await for the Dolphins to finish in third in the AFC East for the third consecutive season
A “It Will All Be Over Soon” tag? Someone just opened a warehouse full of apricots. Thanks UM, not all of us are Redskins fans dreading the start of the season.
I believe this is last minute negotiating douchiness which is different than general douchiness. All this shot will be resolved by the end of the week.
I am safe to assume “that guy” is in reference to that time Brees, Manning, Mankins, and Jackson got really hammered at Kluwe’s wedding and upstaged the best man, right?
“In exchange for NOT having my signature on the settlement of the case, I would like:”
“a 1978 AMC Pacer, 10 Snuggies® w/ #67 embroidered on them and a meet & greet w/ Jon Cryer of Two and a Half Men.”
Chris Kluwe Remains Concious Despite Position
Gotta hand it to the kid, he can really take a donkey punch.
Direct quote from Brady: “LOL U MAD?”
Drew Brees would never upstage the best man. Instead, he would give him the bestest toast for the bride and groom in the world!
Kluwe is awesome. Best Twitter account in the NFL, plays in a band, demolishes stupid Peter King arguments, all while getting paid decent money for one of the most maligned positions in the game.
/maybe slight homerism
//but other people agree with me
If Sean Taylor were still alive, Kluwe would be dead man walking. So who’s gonna take the challenge to knock a shit talking kicker the fuck out?
WHO I SAY?!?!?!
I don’t blame Kluwe. He has a great shot at breaking the NFL record for most punts in a season this year.
I see someone gladly taking the 15 yards in exchange for having a clean shot at Kluwe this year. Lord knows the Vikings will have be making plenty of meaningless punts in the 4th quarter of blowouts this season.
Also, I’m kind of stymied at how the NFLPA can preach unity and togetherness for four months, and then they let four players tank discussions. What the shit is that?
I really do just love the fact that Brady and Manning are at the forefront of preventing us football.
Thanks a lot douchebags a&b, and the rest of the 8 dicks(you too Breesus)
At least Manning, Mankins & Brady’s douchiness gives us plenty of excuses to hate Pats and Colts fans again. It’s like the lockout never happened!
Really? You guys see people wanting to take shots at Kluwe? To defend Pey Pey? Really?
It’s pretty refreshing to see that at least one athlete (okay, punter) was dreaming of becoming a rich NFL player just so he could afford to buy all of the expensive Warhammer miniatures and sculptures of his World of Warcraft character he always wanted.
All you people lumping Brady in realize he wasn’t mentioned in Kluwe’s tweet right? Because although he’s one of the named plaintiffs, he actually has a contract and so has no reason to bitch about the franchise tag? And so is NOT one of the players holding up the negotiations.
//Mankins is still being a megadouche.
Agreed. +1 on the reference UM.
/but no really, what did the bags o’ douche do to upset the punter?
My team has the coolest punter ever.
His twitter feed is actually pretty decent. He’s either fully baked or he’s prepping for a Governor of Minnesota run. I’m thinking both.
/Yes, I know the Vikings are going 3-13 this year.
Apparently the punter is also expressing his thoughts via youtube:
Someone on the Vikings calling other’s douches’? (even though I agree)-
All easily come to mind not to mention your coaches…
And lastly-whoever the FUCK decided Hershel Walker was worth 3 Cowboys Super Bowl rings!!! Most fucked up trade ever (voted by me), that G.M. must be in the federal witness relocation program. We don’t hear shit about him unless Whitey Bulger is spilling his guts to the Fed’s now. I doubt it though as I am guessing he is holding out for a six pack of Pete’s Wicked Ale (Summer brew or some fruity shit now that he moved south).
/ Is my placement of parenthesis and periods correct?
//Hate to piss off all you award winning bloggers.
Call Drew Brees a douchebag all you want, but he has cast a Level 5 charm spell on me
@Tim’sTebowtie – these players are using their leverage in the CBA negotiations to get benefits for themselves. In Brees’ and Manning’s cases, they’re trying to work it so they can never be given the franchise tag. Not sure exactly what’s going on with the other guys–something something free agency.
You go, girl. Brad and Brees are fucking employees, not negotiators. Gene Upshaw is spinning. “Fucktards” mioght have been a more accurate term. I’m thinking 6-10 and a pro bowl berth for Chrissie…… .
How the fuck does Brady’s name come up when four players NOT named Tom Brady are the bitches holding this shit up? That’s a monumental achievement in trolling. Also, fuck Mankins. I’m a huge Pats fan (hinted at by the close proximity of my tongue to Brady’s ballsack), but that guy is being such a douchebag. EMERGE, Marcus Cannon, EMERGE.
We snark, yes…but Brady is still better than football head.
//marry a model joke
///insert snark here
Drew Brees will win the dispute, and give all the money to cancer kids. But he understands Chris Kluwe’s sentiments, and will buy him a steak dinner and introduce him to his long-lost sister in a tearful reunion when the lockout ends. Then, as they hug and share stories of their many years apart, Drew will quietly back away, and then make his exit, a slight smile on his face as he walks off into the sunset.
Who is Chris Kluwe?
It’s named plantiff negotiating. Not a big deal. Kluwe is a dick. Moving on.
so, you are a plaintiff in a massive case and billions of dollars rely on you (one of four people) agreeing to a settlement, right? If your legal counsel does NOT advise you to get what you can out of it then he likely 1) sucks and 2) could have a colourable legal malpractice case against you (while remote, it’s a dereliction of duty to NOT tell him to work his position). How rare is it to be so needed? Why would you not try to set yourself up for life? Who is the douchebag? It’s Kluwe. He’s just wrong here.
The issues for the individual plaintiffs that brought the case are player issues; the case was brought about as a tool to get these issues resolved by putting additional pressure on the owners. See the case involving Reggie White vs. NFL that brought about free agency in its current form.
Whether these particular plaintiffs were involved or not is irrelevant to the players’ issues involved. The NFLPA wanted several big name players involved in this legal action for obvious reasons. The items involved in the suit are the last being negotiated, those items are holding up closure, not the suit itself.
Kluwe is a SCAB. I hope he got bitch beatdown insurance.
Thanks Chest Rockwell!
/where’s the “one finger for one union” stuff now?
“bitch beatdown insurance”: I wonder if I can bundle that with my “stupid klutz on a ladder” insurance.
Hey, you are missed at Deadspin by the silent lurking crowd! Hope you return soon, your comments are missed.
