Why Hasn’t Ray McDonald Been Suspended Yet?

Posted in Uncategorized by Flavor on September 2, 2014

Niner Thread because I’ve been disturbed by this since I found out about it over the weekend……

Jim Harbaugh was on KNBR this morning proclaiming how he’ll never tolerate domestic violence from any player on his team. It was a cute speech. Forgive me if I gag. Why is Ray McDonald still practicing with the team? Why hasn’t he been suspended pending this investigation? Pay him, I don’t give a shit. That’s what they do with cops and other people who get suspended during an investigation. 

There is no time to wait for this to work itself out in court. That could take a while and besides, the NFL isn’t bound by the legal system when it comes to suspending players. Ray Rice didn’t get convicted of shit. So, regardless of what you think of his absurd 2 game suspension, waiting around for the legal system to sort this out and THEN react is idiotic. And unnecessary. 

The Niners have a terrible track record with addressing their out of control players off field behavior. Example: Aldon Smith left a drunk tank at 11am and then practiced THAT DAY. And he played every snap of the game that week. Despicable. He was asleep at the wheel at 6am on a residential street doing a 16 inch burner in some dudes lawn for 3 minutes. And a point of interest: Ray McDonald lives on this street…..

They fucked up then and they are fucking up now. Suspend McDonald immediately. There is ample evidence to do so. His pregnant girlfriend has bruises all over her face and neck. How did they get there? I don’t know but that is enough evidence to suspend him. Suspend him while you are doing due diligence. And it should have happened immediately upon his arrest and the pics of his pregnant girlfriend. The New England Patriots cut Aaron Hernandez THE DAY he got arrested…..

The Niners need to act right now, not spout off bullshit about how “domestic violence will never be tolerated.” Please. Who the fuck DOES tolerate domestic violence (or support it)? Words mean nothing. Act now or the easy going Niner fan base is going to react with a severe backlash. Mark my words, this will affect them at the gate and elsewhere if the team allows this dipshit to play this weekend……

A question I’d love to hear Harbs answer: If Ray Rice was on your team, would you let him play? Or would you release him since you have no tolerance for domestic violence? And yeah, it was your own bro who fucked that one up.

Jim Harbaugh is at a critical point in his career right now. This will affect his legacy and everything he does going forward. This has nothing to do with the legal system and/or Ray McDonald’s rights. The NFL isn’t bound by that system or his rights anyway.

The Niners have the ball right now. And so far, they are engaging in a long, slow fumble……

    How many times have the Nats tried to hand this one to LA?…

    Six ex- giants have appeared in this game

    If this doesn’t do it . . .

    That is some game in L.A., eh?

    • pawliekokonuts said, on September 3, 2014 at 5:46 pm

      one more out to go…then again, better yet if the Dodgers tie it and then lose in the 39th inning

      • pawliekokonuts said, on September 3, 2014 at 5:46 pm

        Dodgers lose. Dodgers lose.

    It’s probably been said, but I do not underestimate the contributions of Gregor Blanco in this recent resurgence.

    • James said, on September 3, 2014 at 7:09 pm

      Nope it hasn’t, and you shouldn’t.

  6. Macdog said, on September 3, 2014 at 5:46 pm

    Sheesh, better late than never. Still 2 back.

      Actually, in line with what Pawlie alluded to – I am glad this game went 14. Too bad it couldn’t go another 4-5 innings with them losing. Bottom line is that they still have the easiest schedule of all the potential playoff contenders (which I outlined about a week ago). Any advantage we can get is going to help.

      • Macdog said, on September 3, 2014 at 6:16 pm

        Yeah, unfortunately Giants didn’t quite take advantage of an easy stretch this week by splitting 4 (or was it 3.5) with the lousy Rox. But 2 games isn’t much to make up, and Dodgers seem vulnerable any time Kershaw isn’t pitching.

    Dreaming about a Giant-Dodger NLCS…

    • snarkk said, on September 3, 2014 at 9:03 pm

      That would be a bona fide sizzling situation…

  8. salty said, on September 3, 2014 at 6:50 pm

    With expanded rosters, going 14 innings shouldn’t be much of a factor. They are off tomorrow and resume at home against the woeful dbacks. The question is the strength of their pen in general. Very questionable.

  9. salty said, on September 3, 2014 at 6:56 pm

    Would love to see Cordier Law and Strickland all in the pen next year avg 97-8 on the gun.

    • DJLoo said, on September 3, 2014 at 7:30 pm

      I think Affeldt, Lopez, Casilla and Romo have been together longer than the Beatles…

    • snarkk said, on September 3, 2014 at 9:05 pm

      Strickland looks promising. Cordier looks like he fires the ball in and hopes it lands somewhere near the plate. Law, I haven’t seen — and ya never know what the TJ does to your game…

    new thread. Only look if your have a strong stomach.
