Default Re: Rashard Mendenhall Loses Endorsement Deal

Several Points:

1. retard mendenhall now realizes that Free speech can be costly.
2. Anyone who is upset at Champion for dropping this POS has no idea about how the business world works.
Champion made a business decision not a moral statement
3. I've got some ideas for Retard to pursue other corporate endorsement:

Ivory soap - ads with him washing his mouth out will be a big hit
Cole Haan shoes - picture him contorted with his foot in his mouth but sporting nice leather shoe
Summers Eve douche - because he's a big douche bag

why is it neccessary to call him retard?

that in itself is offensive, and if you were a spokesmen for any of these brands, or if your job heard you saying these things you would be canned in a second

Questioning the official story of nine 0ne 1 is the "touching of the 3rd rail."
What's that mean?

Quote:
1. An additional rail usually found in subway systems, running parallel to the existing tracks, and sometimes slightly elevated. The third rail carries a live electric current which is used to power the subway trains.
"No Trespassing - DANGER THIRD RAIL"
by Mr. X-106 Aug 29, 2004 share this

2. third rail 70 up, 5 down

A dangerous area of discussion, a point at which the mere mention of a subject result is disaster. Commonly used in politics.
"Social security is the third rail of politics. Step on it and you're dead."
-The West Wing
http://www.urbandictionary.com/defin...m=third%20rail

You can say a lot of things, but you question that story and "the
establishment" is coming after you, big time. If you look at anyone
in the public eye that has questioned it, they have been ruined one
way or the other, and, if their career isn't destroyed all the way, you
will note they never mention it again, as RM is now finding out. Don't
expect him to mention it ever again. If he continues, he will be out
of the NFL quickly. Now, say what you will about Charlie Sheen (i.e.
he is whacked out, power coked up, etc.) but once he started to
ask about WTC etc. he was framed by that young porn star, etc.

Scott Ritter, who had always said there were no WMDs in Iraq, as
he was a former weapons inspector and he would know, eventually
got nabbed by a federal agent - allegedly - posing as an underage
girl on line, and he got locked up.

You mess with the establishment, they will react. Like Danzel's character
said in the movie "Training Day"...."It's not what you know it's what you can
prove." Anyone who brings up that day and questions the official story
is quickly vilified.
something to that effect.

You are right. Calling that POS a learning-disabled individual is an insult to LD people everywhere. I apologize.

BTW, I like Champion's products. They don't have the sexy ad campaigns
or the big name athletes endorsing them, but they do have fine products at
a good price. I like their shorts and sleeveless Tees. UnderArmor now owns
the whole world, but that doesn't mean they offer the best value. But I do
like the story about the guy who launched that company. Did it all on running
up max credit card debt. That's how he got started. That took balls.
