catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the Confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the Confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.

will smithNew Orleans recently witnessed two very violent and tragic “Road-Rage” incidents. Two men were killed.   
 
In the first instance legendary New Orleans Saints Defensive lineman, Will Smith, was murdered by Cardell Hayes after a brief altercation on an uptown street.   It appears the incident grew out of a dispute over a minor fender bender, but soon escalated into a very violent affair where Mr. Smith was shot seven times in the back and his wife twice in the legs by Hayes.

 Last night, Brandon Marshall, linebacker for the Denver Broncos, protested during the singing of the anthem by taking a knee. He said that it was a sign of solidarity for Kaepernick, his former college teammate.

I am very familiar with questions of retirement, having made the decision to ride off gracefully into the sunset several years ago. For the youngsters out there, before you reach such a monumental decision, have a plan for what you are going to do. Watching FoxNews or CNN until the cocktail hour is not a plan. Which brings us to Peyton Manning, who wisely took the advice of this column and its multitude of readers and decided to retire from the NFL. So now the question is: “What’s he going to do?”

I saw Saints GM Mickey Loomis at the driving range the day before he headed to Indianapolis for the NFL Combine. The league's annual exercise in poking, prodding, digging and jabbing the latest crop of surefire, can’t miss pheee-noms ideally will turn every moribund franchise into winners. Loomis presides over the local chapter of moribundity, a team that has missed the playoffs three of the past four years.

beyonceThe Super Bowl last Sunday once again drew a massive television audience, although slightly lower than record set for last year’s game. For many non-football fans, the highlight of the telecast is the halftime show. After the controversy of Janet Jackson’s “wardrobe malfunction” in 2004, the NFL started booking legendary rock performers like Paul McCartney to perform at halftime.

NFL teams are filled with stories, most of them about good and bad coaches, good and bad players, and general managers whose reputations are determined by how many of each they hire. But one guy whose head is usually just beneath the line of fire is the public relations director, or “PR” man.

no-ball-compressedThe sports media has been in a tizzy covering the scandal known as “deflate gate.” After it was discovered that 11 of the 12 footballs used by the New England Patriots in their playoff game against the Colts were deflated, the media speculation has been intense about whether the Patriots purposely altered the footballs in an attempt to gain an advantage. Their coach, Bill Belichick, and the team's quarterback, Tom Brady, have been peppered with questions. While they both have denied responsibility, the NFL and media investigation is continuing.

Jonathan-Vilma-restaurant-no-Roger-GoodellIt should not have taken a new elevator video for the NFL to indefinitely suspend running back Ray Rice. It should have happened after the first video was released of Rice dragging his unconscious girlfriend, Janay Palmer, from a casino elevator. At that time, it should have been apparent to everyone that Rice punched his girlfriend since she walked into the elevator, but was dragged out.
