KATHRYN SMITH. WILL THE COACH REALLY COACH OR JUST BE ANOTHER CHEERLEADER?
The sheeple are going ape over the hiring of a female coach in the National Football League. The sheeple, as usual, are half asleep.
Let’s start with my strong suspicion that the NFL games are rigged, much like “professional” wrestling. Not every game goes according to plan, but enough of them do so that the overall outcomes are predetermined.
Big money betters aren’t going to gamble on scores and victories. They’re going to buy those scores and those wins.
Second, the NFL has become increasingly politicized in recent years. The league promotes all sort of politically correct causes, including “breast cancer awareness,” whatever the hell that is.
Kowtowing to an increasingly hostile federal government by hiring a woman coach on each team is a small price to pay to keep the feds off your back: The Bills are first. Others will follow.
Smith is well-known to Bills head coach Rex Ryan: she began her career with the New York Jets as a game day and college scouting intern, then became a player personnel assistant in 2007, a position she held for several years; Ryan was hired as head coach in 2009. In 2014, Smith changed positions and became assistant to the head coach.
When Ryan was fired by the Jets and hired a short time later by Buffalo, Smith followed him to Western New York, as administrative assistant to the head coach.
In a statement, Ryan said Smith is ready for the job change, and that he’d spoken to Cardinals’ coach Bruce Arians about having a female on staff.
“Kathryn Smith has done an outstanding job in the seven years that she has worked with our staff. She certainly deserves this promotion based on her knowledge and strong commitment, just to name a couple of her outstanding qualities, and I just know she’s going to do a great job serving in the role of Quality Control-Special Teams,” Ryan said.
“Kathryn has been working in a football administrative role and assisted the assistant coaches for years. She has proven that she’s ready for the next step, so I’m excited and proud for her with this opportunity. She will work with [special teams coordinator] Danny Crossman and [special teams assistant] Eric Smith involving a number of responsibilities.
Holy moly. The Bill’s head coach, Rex Ryan, can’t even name her responsibilities precisely. Wanna bet she’s a deadhead coach, paid to do almost nothing.
One more thing. You may remember that Rex Ryan was outed in the press a few years ago as a foot fetishist. I wonder how cute Smith’s feet are.
