Desean Jaccson’s Reality Show Is Positively RIDICULOUS

Voila_Capture 2015-07-01_12-23-48_PM

So I watched the abomination that is the obviously scripted and staged DeSean Jaccson: Home Team, which debuted on BET today last night. Here’s a brief recap:

Things started off with news footage from when DeSean was released by the Eagles. The setup is obvious: Once on top, not on top, working to be on top again, but will face obstacles that can only be overcome by the guiding hand of his fame-seeking mother, Gayle.

We haven’t seen this formula before.

The framing is clearly built atop a deep hurt resulting from DeSean’s release from the Eagles. These are just some of the things he had to say with regard to that matter:

“It was a smear campaign.”

“They call me Giant killer, Cowboy killer. Now I’m an Eagle killer, too”

“I felt they definitely tried to paint a picture that wasn’t true.”

“It’s like, bro, the Eagles, they tried to blow me up– that’s how cold they did me.”

So one would assume that the following 20 minutes would consist of video evidence that DeSean is not the character he’s perceived to be, and that he’s doing all the right things to reverse the existing perception. That seems like an obvious conclusion given the early appearance of his longtime publicist, Denise, whom DeSean says is doing a “great job.”* But nope. Denise’s client is now the star of a show which features consecutive segments about his rap aspirations, partying habits, and the conundrum he faces after knocking up his girlfriend of “five or six months.” There’s no mention in the first episode of the OTAs he skipped for the second year in a row.

*This despite the fact that her client has been publicly cast as a gangster who’s not a team player and cares more about his rap career and fame than football, something that is not at all being helped by his new reality show. Yeah, she’s doing yeoman’s work.

I mean, what, on Earth, was DeSean’s camp thinking here? The questionable character traits apparent in just the span of a few minutes are staggering. They have nothing to do with him being a gangster and everything to do with him being a selfish jerk. Evidence: Continue reading

Jason Kelce Slams Dumb Punter for Opening Dumb Punter Mouth

kelce

This weekend, loudmouth punter Steve Weatherford compared the Eagles’ quarterbacks to cars. Here’s what he said on the “Boomer and Carton Show”:

“I’m gonna give you a Ferrari [Bradford] that maybe won’t be running all the time, or I’m giving you a nice Cadillac sedan [Sanchez]. It’s not the fastest but you know what you’re going to get out of it. Bradford can go from 0 to 60 in three seconds, but you don’t know if he’s gonna start up some days.”

“Chip Kelly will get himself in serious trouble if they get an extension for [Bradford]”

He later tried to walk back his (kind of accurate) comments, but none of that matters because Jason Kelce has recorded a fatality. #everyman

Chip Kelly’s Punch-Out!!

CKPO
Crosswalk

This post is part of The Crosswalk, Crossing Broad’s reader submitted section. While checked for basic quality and readability, it is not edited by Crossing Broad, and all opinions expressed are those of the author, for better or worse. If you’re interested in having your work appear on Crossing Broad, fill out the short sign up form here.

The most compelling story in the dumpster fire that is the Philadelphia sports scene is Chip Kelly and his need to borrow a shit to give one about what people think about how the fans, the media and his former players feel about how he wields his newfound autonomy as general manager.

Chip has become the most endorsable sports figure in Philly but let’s be real, the Tostitos thing went stale quickly. Evan Mathis was the latest to see his time with the Eagles KO’d by Chip (even if it was by request). We haven’t seen this type of carnage since Mike Tyson in his prime. The video game industry has picked up on the trend and found the perfect game to tie the “could he be a racist or is he just a megalomaniac?” head coach/general manager to: The “could it be racist or is it just one big chain of lazy stereotypes?” Punch-Out!! Series.

Welcome, Chip Kelly’s Punch-Out!!

Remember: Don’t waste your knockout punch on Tra Full of Bull if he’s not stunned.

Today In “Marcus Vick Is Insanely Stupid”

Remember when Michael Vick plead guilty to “Conspiracy to Travel in Interstate Commerce in Aid of Unlawful Activities and to Sponsor a Dog in an Animal Fighting Venture” a.k.a. dog fighting and torture? The Vick camp would like to forget that ever happened. Unfortunately (mostly for the dogs), it did, and people remember. One of those people, Philadelphia Magazine’s Victor Fiorillo, being dickish here in a way that maybe wasn’t entirely necessary, decided to remind the Vicks of this in a response to a press invite to “Mike Vick Weekend.”

Fiorillo responded with a highly sarcastic “But will there be dog fights? I’m only coming if there are dog fights.” Once again, maybe not super timely, but the people behind those email invites – especially when they go out to discerning press members – should probably expect a response or two like that. They did not.

Archileen “Carmena” Ayo-Davies, the president and CEO of local public relations firm 3BG Marketing Solutions, responded to Fiorillo by “threatening to expose [him] to ‘media friends’ … called [him] a ‘racist’ … picked up the phone and called [him], screaming the r-word at [him] over and over again, and also accused [him] of being a dog killer.”

Fiorillo continued: “I pointed out that my two-line email was obviously sarcasm, and she said, “I don’t know what that is.” [Click]”

Of course, from here, it went exactly where you figured it would go: Marcus Vick.

It turns out that neither Ayo-Davies nor the lesser Vick quite get sarcasm:

Man, the Vick camp really picks its spots over when to be mad about dog fighting.

There’s more here, including Vick’s request to “black eye” Fiorillo. The line forms behind John Bolaris.

#CULTURE!!!!!

Voila_Capture 2015-06-17_10-41-55_AM

From ImgurAt this year’s NFLPA rookie premiere, rookies wrote their #1 goal for the season under a polaroid of themselves. Most wrote that they wanted to be in the Super Bowl or Pro Bowl, but look what Nelson Agholor wrote. I love this kid.

I imagine if this were LeSean McCoy, he would’ve written: Lead the league in rushing and use endorsement money to buy a Bentley. You feel me?! Out!
