The Jay Graves Report

T.O. & Chad Johnson sounded like two butt naked maniacs on ESPN today! “Duck Tape”


Cristiano Ronaldo, Portuguese soccer player, once said, “Why lie? I’m not going to be a hypocrite and say the opposite of what I think, like some others do.” Tennessee Williams, the famous playwright,  gave it to us like this, “The only thing worse than a liar is a liar that’s also a hypocrite!” William Hazlitt, the English writer, broke it down like a player at a pimp convention when he spit, “The only vice that cannot be forgiven is hypocrisy. The repentance of a hypocrite is itself hypocrisy.” 

Well playas…the hypocrisy shows up every time I turn on the radio or television these days and hear some former NFL player talkin’ crazy about concussions. This mornin’ both T.O. and Chad Johnson were on Mike & Mike talkin’ like they were somewhere butt naked foamin’ at the mouth about darn near everything they asked them. For starters Chad tried to tell a boy that he probably could have beatin’ Michael Phelps swimmin’ if he had continued as a kid because he was the city champ! What!!!? Phelps is the best Oylimpian of all-time bruh! He’s won 22 medals!!! You were the city champ! Not the state champ or national champ! He’s the WORLD champ!!! Stop it! Then T.O.’s ole hatin’ butt went at Cris Carter sayin’ that the dun begged his way into the Hall of Fame. This is the foolishness that I’m talkin’ about bruh! And then they asked cats like this real questions about concussions and the all of the marbles just fall off of the table. 

These fairly young but retired cats that still have some bread are tellin’ boyz that no way would they check themselves out of a game if they even suspected they were concussed. And then the old cats are tryin’ to sue the league because they’ve got early onset dementia Etc. 

“Yeah, I said it!”

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! You can’t have it both ways bruh! To a freakin’  man EVERY young cat you talk to will say that you would have to drag them off of the field. It doesn’t matter how bad of a hit it was they were gonna keep playin’. Their mind set is, “We don’t have guaranteed contracts! So this is my livelihood. No way I’m I goin’ to sit down and let another cat take my job! So I’m playin’ through the concussion if I can lie to a boy and stay out there.” 

That’s cool playa, but I don’t wanna hear from you in twenty years hollerin’ about you can’t remember what you put your shoes on for or why you even left the house in the first place once you’re broke. Don’t be on TV tellin’ boyz that you wish you wouldn’t have played football like Antwann Randle El said or sayin’ how the league didn’t warn you of the foolishness to come. Why? Because if they had opened your freakin’ brain up and showed you the CTE crawlin’ around on it’s knees you would have told those duns to close that joint back up with some duck tape because yo contract ain’t guaranteed. 

You can’t have your cake and eat it too! Either you’re cool with makin’ a king’s ransom and havin’ health problems in your later years or you’re cool with quittin’ the game early because of injuries and livin’ without the health problems. But you can’t do both playa. 

Lil’ Ms. Johnson and Mr. Willie down the street worked at the steel mill for 35 years inhalin’ every chemical you could think of and old man Joe across the street cut his darn hand off in the physical plant 20 years ago. They went to work every day to provide for their families and they’ve got all kinds of health issues and problems that they’ll have for the rest of their lives but they aren’t blamin’ anybody for it. It’s called the hazard of the freakin’ job pimpin’! So stop tryin’ to get folks to feel sorry for you because you’ve got some health problems but you made more bread than most people could EVER fathom. You sound like a fool tryin’ to and stop me when I start lyin’!
