Oh just shut the hell up Bert favor.....(Brett Favre).......

Former Packers quarterback Brett Favre made his viewpoint on transgender athletes clear in his podcast Tuesday, saying it’s not fair for trans women to compete against other women.

According to a report from The Hill, Favre said allowing trans women to compete with other women is allowing men into the field.

“It’s not fair for a man, even if this person wants to be a woman or feels compelled — if you want to become the opposite sex, that’s fine. I got no problem with it. But you can’t compete against — males cannot compete against females,” Favre said on his podcast.

The question arose shortly after trans New Zealand weightlifter Laurel Hubbard qualified for the Tokyo Olympics June 21. Hubbard has long met testosterone requirements for competing as a woman, having last competed as a man in 2001.

Favre made a distinction between Hubbard and “true females” in his comments, saying he would be “beside himself” if he was a woman and lost to Hubbard.

Students athletes gonna be getting paid.......

A unanimous Supreme Court said on Monday that student athletes could receive education-related payments, in a case that could reshape college sports by allowing more money from a billion-dollar industry to go to the players.

Justice Neil Gorsuch delivered the opinion of the court.
College sports raise billions of dollars from ticket sales, television contracts and merchandise, and supporters of the students say the players are being exploited and barred from the opportunity to monetize their talents. In 2016, for example, the NCAA negotiated an eight-year extension of its broadcasting rights to March Madness, worth $1.1 billion annually.

In a concurring opinion, Justice Brett Kavanaugh said the NCAA is essentially acting "above the law" in how it treats athletes.

Nowhere else in America can businesses get away with agreeing not to pay their workers a fair market rate on the theory that their product is defined by not paying their workers a fair market rate," Kavanaugh wrote. "And under ordinary principles of antitrust law, it is not evident why college sports should be any different. The NCAA is not above the law."
The NCAA did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Herschel Walker is running for U S Senate.......

Herschel Walker is set to resume running, Mike Rosenstein of NJ Advance Media reports.

The ex-NFL star has been encouraged by former President Donald Trump to run for the U.S. Senate in Georgia.

In a video tweeted Friday with the message “Georgia on my mind,” Walker indicated he’s about to throw his hat into the ring: “I’m getting ready. And we can run with the dogs.”

The video ends with a shot of a Georgia license plate on Walker’s car, indicating he might be establishing residency so he can run for office in the The Peach State. Walker, you may recall, played his college ball at Georgia and won the Heisman Trophy in 1982 with the Bulldogs.

Walker’s career as a pro football player began in 1983 when he signed with the New Jersey Generals in the USFL. In 1984, Trump bought the Generals. Walker played two seasons with Trump as his boss before heading to the Dallas Cowboys, who owned his NFL draft rights. The USFL folded in 1986 following its failed antitrust lawsuit vs. the NFL.

Did I miss this discussion today?? Conservatives applaud Jon Stewart???

Conservatives applauded Jon Stewart’s for embracing the coronavirus lab leak theory on The Late Show’s first post-pandemic episode.

The former Daily Show host was Stephen Colbert’s guest on Monday night for the show’s first full-audience production at the Ed Sullivan Theater since the pandemic began. Stewart and Colbert butted heads after Stewart voiced support for the theory that Covid came from a Chinese laboratory.

“And how long have you worked for Senator Ron Johnson?” Colbert asked during the exchange. This was clearly a jab at the Wisconsin senator — a longtime believer in the lab leak theory. But Stewart stood by his argument that “this is not a conspiracy.”

Between the coronavirus’ origins from Wuhan, China’s lack of transparency, and the politicization of the pandemic, the public discourse over the lab leak theory has been colored by battles of partisanship. Conservatives and hard-liners against China have been arguing in favor of the theory for months, whereas others have viewed it as an anti-Chinese conspiracy theory, or at least, an idea that requires more investigation, facts and hard evidence before it can be proven true.
