Kobe Beef


Since the sports establishment can't stop praising Kobe Bryant as a hungry, strong-willed great champion (or whatever the fuck the adulation-du-jour may be) I thought I should remind people that it is highly likely that Kobe is a goddamn rapist who got away with his crime because he could assemble a multi-million dollar 'defense' (a.k.a. character assault and intimidation) team. It helped, I suppose, that the NBA was struggling in those years and it was in the financial interest of a whole lot of people to sweep this under the rug as fast as possible, cos, you know, it's all about 'protecting your assets' and 'managing your brand' and shit like that.

The intimidation and character-assasination that Kobe's team indulged in was despicable. But then again, Kobe is despicable, so what else would you expect? Besides, the victim's lifestyle or habits, whatever they may have been, does not give anyone a license to sexually assault her. The Kobe line of defense was basically the same old "She was asking for it" mentality that only rapists can favor.

For those who may not be familiar, or for those who may have forgotten, go read the Wiki summary of the case and Kobe's admission of guilt in exchange for his freedom.

Congrats LAkers and NBA and all the rest of you fawning sports 'journalist' parasites---looks like your star 'product' is the worst kind of stinking despicable criminal who bought his way out of punishment!

Thank you.

I was thinking exactly the same thing as I watched him whiz by on my TV the other night.


For hire!

Thanks again for the memory.

Right on, Stache, money talks and criminal walks. And he was also rewarded for this heinous act (God I hate this phrase) "Street Cred!"

Vick served his time. If he rehabs his image and ascends to sports stardom again, there is a HUGE difference. It's not like Vick perverted the system with money to escape completely free. Besides I happen to believe, from what I have seen, that Vick is actually contrite and may have learned better.
Kobe, on the other hand, is a supremely arrogant bastard who knows that he got away with rape. There is a reason why nobody likes him (amongst his peers, I mean)---most of his peers hate the fucker. A lot of total whackjobs in sports still have the admiration and respect (and even friendship) of many of their peers---but rape is different even in the privileged ranks of the multimillionaire athletes. I think a LOT of his peers know that he is a damned rapist and they want no part of that image by buddying up with him. And good on them, BTW, for that.
