Collinsworth: Johnson's taunting worse than Suh

JohnsonPosted by Josh Katzowitz

On this week’s episode of Inside the NFL on Showtime, analysts Cris Collinsworth and Warren Sapp discuss the Stevie Johnson touchdown celebration that mocked Plaxico Burress and reenacted a plane crashing into the ground.

Some thought it was funny. Many thought it was ludicrous and over-the-top. And one person thought it was worse than Ndamukong Suh’s version of Stomp.

That one person? Cris Collinsworth.

So, um, say what, Cris?

“The Stevie Johnson thing was worse than Ndamukong Suh because it was premeditated,” Collinsworth said in comments released by the show. “Because he planned it out. And the reason they don’t let them do all this stuff, the NFL, is because it will always get away from them. It will always go too far.  And to plan on a celebration where you’re going to shoot somebody, shoot yourself in the leg to mock another player, but the other one was even worse.  To do the jet thing and fall down like a jet falling out of the sky.  To me it crossed so many boundaries. It makes you want to eliminate all celebrations together.”

OK, but how is that worse than Suh trying to maim another player?

“Ndamukong Suh, he got mad,” Collinsworth said.  “There was a fight and it’s happened to every one of us. Every one of us.  We’ve jumped over and slammed somebody down.”

Apparently, the NFL disagreed, because the league has suspended Suh for two games while it’s fined Johnson a paltry $10,000.

Collinsworth: Johnson's taunting worse than Suh

Hey buddy learn the tax system before you talk about funneling taxpayer money to the top 1%....the top 1% tax dollars are being funneled down to the lower middle, to lower class people that really need it. You screw with the top 1% and complain how much money they make (mostly though hard work, and sacrafice) then expect taxes to go up for the middle class
Wow. You know absolutely nothing about the American economic situation.

The tax rate on the top 1% has dropped for 30 years, not counting a minor jog during Clinton's run that was immediately done away with afterward. Those cuts were paid for by regressive taxation. Regressive taxation hits the poor only. In a five-year span, 2002-2007, the "income" of the top 1% doubled. Without producing anything more than what they were producing. That means they didn't create any wealth, good or service; they simply got more money. One of the ways they got more was through regressive taxation.

If you think even 25% of the top 1% made their money from hard work and sacrifice, you not only know nothing about the reality of the situation, you're perpetuating falsehoods that are the exact opposite. A minimum of 15% of that wealth was inherited. 60% of the income of the Forbes 400 is made by manipulating wealth. That is, they don't create anything, employ amybody, or offer any services. They just fiddle with the numbers. That's not "hard work" or "sacrifice". It's vampirism. Pure take, no give, contributing nothing to the economy or society and reaping unrivaled fortunes.

This is why people are angry. No one is pissed at a rich company that employs lots of people, produces valuable goods/services, and pays their taxes. That's actually what people want, not what they're fighting against. They're angry at the vampires who suck wealth from the 99% and contribute nothing in return.

Collinsworth: Johnson's taunting worse than Suh

Now your comments about "entitlement ways" and "whining crybabies" are spot on, one has to look no further than the Occupy Wall St movement to see it demonstrated.
Okay, this is just f***ing stupid. Pig-ignorant and stupid. Every right and privilege you enjoy as an American came about as a result of popular struggle. Every single one. Occupy Wall Street, the Tea Party Movement, and their ilk are doing the only thing that has ever worked, in terms of forcing Congress to address the needs of the people: Going into the streets and demanding change.

Explain how people who are sick of 30 straight years of funneling taxpayer money to the top 1% taking to the streets has anything to do with "entitlement ways" and "whining crybabies". I'd really like to hear what misinformed, twisted "logic" brought you to the conclusion that the government should continue to take our tax dollars and hand them over to the people who couldn't need it less during a time when using those dollars effectively is more important than ever. I would especially like to hear the rationalization for Adelphia, Enron, Worldcom, etc's blatant thievery at the expense of the taxpayers, and why that makes the people who oppose such criminality "whining crybabies". Do explain; I can't wait.

Hey Collinsworth, your high.  How about what you did to former Bill Shane Conlin?  YOU were a cheap shot pussy!
