My Thoughts For Week 3

First, I’d like to talk about a statement that was posed to me on social media.  A Raiders fan had said,

We just need to win

OK, I’m going to respond to that here.  There are some major problems going on in Oakland.  Winning is just a symptom not the actual problem.  Let’s look at the most major of the problems:

1. The head coach hasn’t been released even though his performance has been substandard for many seasons.
2. The coaching staff under the head coach doesn’t seem to be getting the job done either.
3. The owner hasn’t stepped up to  remedy the situation (Mebbe he wants to help Peyton Manning get another ring?).
4. There doesn’t seem like there’s many talented players on the team (although it just may be the really bad coaching).
5. Maybe they’re trying for first round draft pick?

As a Kansas City Chiefs fan, I’d love to see the old rivalry between the Chiefs and the Raiders spark again, it made things rather interesting.  The Raiders need to make a clean sweep and start with a clean slate so to speak.

Now on to other thoughts about this week.  The Chiefs finally won thier first game of the season against the Dolphins.  It wasn’t televised here in Hawaii, so I didn’t get to see the game.  It must’ve been tough with  many of thier key players gone. I hope that they keep the winning streak up so we can catch the Donkeys. I hope that Alex Smith proves me right and shows that he’s worth that contract that he just signed.  After a poor start, the Chiefs need to keep this winning streak up.  They also need all of our key players back on the active roster.  They need Charles back too.

As I write this post, the Donkeys and the SeaChickens are tied and in overtime.  I don’t want to see the SeaChickens win, I don’t like them.  Heh, the weird thing is that I like the Donkeys more than them, and I don’t like the Donkeys. The fans are too cocky (over one good season that was a fluke in my opinion).

Now on to other events.  Many of the fans are calling for the Commishioner of the NFL to step down.  My feelings on this subject is that everyone should wait for the investagation to complete first.  America was founded on the principle of innocient till proven guilty.  Something doesn’t feel right, but it doesn’t mean it was the Commisioner, or it just was the Commisioner acting alone.  Something tells me that there are more guilty parties in this case than meets the eye.  It’s not a clear cut case of one person being wrong and bearing responsibility for the whole situation.

On a similar note, Ray Rice is fighting the suspension that he’s on.  Why?  He’s guilty for breaking the rules of the NFL (and the reputation of the NFL and the Baltimore Ravens), the law, and making everyone look bad.  Not to mention that there’s indesputible evidence that he’s guilty.  If he needs to go to flipping burgers, he should.  Why waste money on a legal battle?  Nevermind, rhetorical question  (bleh).

Anyhow, those are my thoughts on week 3.  Can’t wait for week 4.  Go Chiefs!

Serial Bank Robbers & Their Families

A couple of days ago, the Honolulu Police Department (HPD), apprehended the suspects they say are responsible for the string of bank robberies that took place on the island. While that’s good news in my opinion, the more disturbing news is that thier family members are being are in the process of being evicted from state subsidized housing in Halawa. Is punishing their families for what they did is correct? Only one of the suspects were listed on the lease, and while I can understand he’s living there and suspected of crimes, he hasn’t been convicted yet.

So, that leaves the question of the ethics of the evictions. I do understand the housing is tax payer funded and there is strict rules, why punish the entire family for what one person has done? As I write this, there are 3 families that have their futures up in the air and uncertain. The other 2 suspects were being hid there by their families, while I can understand that’s illegal, and stupid, the ethics of eviction is still in question.

After giving this a lot of thought, I take the side of the authorities. I feel that the families knew that the suspects were wanted for commuting crimes, but allowed them to stay with them. But the one that lived there? I have the feeling that his father knew. Should they be evicted? Yes.

Many will feel differently for many different reasons, but if you think about it logically, most parents will protect thier child no matter how old they are, or what they did. Its maternal instinct, and very common. That and when one is young, scared, and don’t know what to do, where do they run? They run to thier parents/families for help. So, did they know yes, more than likely. And even if they didn’t, they were allowed to stay there. If the authorities allow them to stay, in the future, this will happen again. And we’d be funding public housing for criminals, funding the prison system is enough. The law abiding citizens shouldn’t be forced to help house criminals on the outside.

In any case, those are my thoughts on this subject. Thanks for reading. 🙂
