Cleveland Browns join 2008 Detroit
Lions as NFL´s only 0-16 teams

Detroit Free Press, by Carols Monarrez

Original Article

Posted By:NorthernDog, 1/1/2018 12:50:06 PM

PITTSBURGH — Move over, 2008 Detroit Lions. You have company. The Cleveland Browns have finished the season 0-16 and have equaled you in futility. With a 28-24 loss Sunday to the Pittsburgh Steelers before 50,704 at Heinz Field, the Browns joined the 2008 Lions as the only NFL teams to finish a season 0-16. And I have to say it feels good. Like a weight has been lifted from Detroit’s back. Like an ugly mole has been removed. Maybe it’s true that misery loves company. In a Twitter poll I posted before the game, 67 percent of more than 500

Comments:
And last year they were 1-15. Soul-crushing bad.

I found myself in a business yesterday that was playing a station with a NFL game on the TV. In the past I was interested / ambivalent about the game / players.

Imagine my surprise when I looked at the game and felt revulsion for the thugs on the field and the owners that allow and encourage their anti-social and unpatriotic behavior.

Am I the only one that has undergone a wholesale metamorphosis of attitude about the NFL and football?

Mostly, #1. The players are a problem, to be sure....they are the most visible example of the millennial generation raised on diet of SJW idiocy including pro-gay and pro-thug propaganda.

But the attitude towards the owners is shifting also. They are no longer regarded as pillars of the community or even sportsmen who ´just want to win.´ Instead, they are becoming known as venal, greedy, and insecure. TV money has made at least half the league content to cash a check and to heck with the game results.

The Browns lost to the Nittany Lions yesterday... Pittsburgh didn´t even play their starters!
Here´s what is truly amazing about all this - they insist, INSIST that they will be keeping this 31-1 coach! Not only that, but the coach stated that nobody in the NFL could have done his job any better! A guy who didn´t even win ONE game this season has the audacity to say this!! He should be fired on that statement alone!
I am truly living in a world I no longer understand!

Members of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity rallied at a Starbucks in Philadelphia on Sunday after their fraternity brother, Rashon Nelson, was arrested there earlier this month in an incident the city’s mayor called an example of racial profiling. More than 100 fraternity members and supporters attended the “Rally Against Racial Injustice” on Sunday afternoon, held near the downtown Philadelphia Starbucks where Nelson and his friend, Donte Robinson, were arrested on April 12 after the store’s manager asked them to leave because they hadn’t purchased anything.

BERKELEY - A coffee shop in Berkeley, the Elmwood Cafe, has closed overnight without warning. The abrupt closure comes after a famous comedian alleged that a racist incident happened to him at the cafe similar to the recent arrest of two black men in a Philadelphia Starbucks. On Monday, famous East Bay comedian W. Kamau Bell recalled on CNN how he says he experienced racism there. “In 2015, I was kicked out of the Elmwood Cafe because they thought I was harassing my wife and my 13-week old baby,” Bell said.

Jerusalem - German Chancellor Angela Merkel denounced the emergence of "another form of anti-Semitism" from refugees of Arab origin in Germany, in an interview with Israeli television broadcast on Sunday. "We have a new phenomenon, as we have many refugees among whom there are, for example, people of Arab origin who bring another form of anti-Semitism into the country," Merkel told the private Channel 10 network. Her remarks come after an alleged anti-Semitic attack Tuesday in Berlin caused a stir in Germany.

Fake Starbucks coupons have begun circulating on social media in the wake of protests over the arrests of two black men who had asked to use a Starbucks restroom. The coupons, which feature images of Starbucks beverages, the brand´s iconic color green and bar codes, appear to offer "people of color" or "African-American heritage" free drinks. "This is completely false and in no way associated with Starbucks," a Starbucks spokeswoman told CNBC.

Starbucks is closing thousands of stores across the U.S. on the afternoon of May 29 to conduct "racial-bias education geared toward preventing discrimination in our stores," the company said in a statement. The coffee shop chain has been criticized and protested against after two black men were arrested last week at a Starbucks in Philadelphia, where they were quietly waiting to meet someone. Starbucks employees called 911 after one of the men, who had not yet purchased anything, asked to use the bathroom and then remained at the shop.

SAN DIEGO - Fayaz Nawabi has never met President Donald Trump. But he credits the president with convincing him to run for office. Nawabi, a 31-year-old candidate for San Diego City Council, supports almost everything that Trump opposes: He is pro-affordable housing, pro-environment, pro-immigrant and pro-refugee. That makes him part of the blue wave of new liberal candidates spurred to run by Trump´s election and policies. But Nawabi is also part of a notable subset: the blue Muslim wave. More than 90 American Muslims, nearly all of them Democrats, are running for public office across the country this year. Many

Curse him, mostly. They may be card-carrying members of “the Resistance,” who oppose everything that the president stands for, but Mrs. Clinton’s former aides and advisers are still too angry at Mr. Comey, the former F.B.I. director, to see past what they view as his egregious actions that handed the White House to Mr. Trump. In interviews, Twitter posts, television appearances and private grumblings, Team Hillary is using Mr.

It's from election night, when Chozick writes in Chasing Hillary: Ten Years, Two Presidential Campaigns, and One Intact Glass Ceiling that it finally became clear somebody had to break the news to Clinton that she was going to lose to Donald Trump. The task fell to "Robby Mook, the drained and deflated campaign manager," per an excerpt in the Times. And when he finally did so, Clinton "didn't seem all that surprised," writes Chozick.

The president who delights in bigness — of his buildings, his crowd sizes, his hands — is opting for a slimmed-down affair when he hosts French President Emmanuel Macron for his first state dinner on Tuesday. Gone are the President Barack Obama-era days of outside event-planning firms and tents set up on the South Lawn to accommodate guest lists of more than 350. Like President George W. Bush, Trump will host the event in the State Dining Room, with a guest list close to 150. But unlike his predecessors, Trump hasn’t
