San Fransisco Giants Disrespect 2010 World Series MVP Edgar Renteria With A Low-Ball Contract Offer

December 17, 2010 Leave a comment

FanNation – Edgar Renteria doesn’t sound like a guy who wants to return to San Francisco, not after an offer from the Giants that is

Edgar Renteria would rather stay home than play for $1 million dollars.

roughly a third of the average MLB player’s salary. [Renteria] understands the best part of his major league career is over and baseball is a business, but he still hoped for better treatment from the San Francisco Giants after helping the team to the World Series in October. San Francisco offered a one year, $1 million contract to the 2010 World Series MVP. “That offer from the Giants was a lack of respect. A total disrespect,” Renteria told ESPNdeportes.com Thursday from Colombia. “To play for a million dollars, I’d rather stay with my private business and share more time with my family,” he said.

The San Fransisco Giants have offered Edgar Renteria, the 2010 World Series MVP, a $1 million dollar contract to stay with the team for 1 more year.

The Colombian free agent had a $9.5 million dollar option to play next season but the Giants declined to pick it up.

To go from $9.5 million to $1 million is crazy, the Giants should have just told him to find another team to play for.

Because thats basically what that offer is saying. I know were in a recession but the Giants just won the 2010 World Series.

Where is the respect these days??

Bob Marley’s Daughter Gets Probation For Growing Marijuana

October 27, 2010 Leave a comment

HipHopWired – Bob Marley’s youngest child will serve 7 years probation for growing marijuana in her Philadelphia area home.

According to The Associated Press, a Chester County judge offered 29-year-old Makeda Jahnesta Marley a choice: a shorter prison term or a long stint on probation. She chose probation but could be forced to serve the prison term if she violates her probation. Continue Reading… 

Makeda Jahnesta Marley, Bob Marley’s daughter, has been placed on probation for 7 years for growing marijuana today.

Would Bob Marley Be Proud?

Marley was arrested in 2008 when she attempted to remove marijuana plants from her home after police had arrived on a domestic-dispute call.

If she’s the one who called the police for the domestic-dispute I would have to call her the dumbest smoker with the last name Marley.

Is it me? Or is America’s issue with marijuana all coming to a head now that were a week away from voting on Proposition 19 that would legalize marijuana??

I can’t vote because I don’t live in California.

But im going to light a fat blunt over here on the East Coast in honor of my Cali brethren.

Legalize it!!

Movies like Last Action Hero are Protected Under Free Speech

Arnold Schwarzenegger vs EMA, also known as California vs Electronic Merchants Association is a supreme court case involving video games set for Nov. 2, 2010. This case involves California Assembly Bills 1792 & 1793, signed by the Governator into law on Oct. 7, 2005. 

The bills were voted down by an appellate court at the Federal level in 2009 finding no evidence that establishes that games are any more harmful than violent television, movies, internet sites or other speech related exposures. 

The 2 bills, if approved, will place ultra-violent video games under the “harmful matter” of the penal code and  force retailers to display signage detailing the ESRB rating and separate the M-Rated games from all others. 

Games like Grand Theft Auto are Protected by Free Speech

California’s penal code “harmful matter” section allows anyone who sells, rents, distributes or exhibits “ultra-violent” video games to be fined up to $2,000 and imprisoned by up to a year. 

The hypocrisy of Schwarzenegger should be obvious here. It could take someone 2 years of playing GTA every day to rack up as many dead bodies as Schwarzenegger did on the big screen with all of his blockbuster flicks. And there’s a difference, video games place cartoon characters in imaginary situations while he stars in action films as a hero in exaggerated real life situations. 

Anyone who wants to make sure the Supreme Court makes the right decision should sign this online petition.
