THE HERD
 
Mission Statement
Commissioner David Stern FoiledInspired by the words of Colin Cowherd on ESPN radio's "The Herd"  ... WE, a nation of tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorists have been called to action. We are the internet surfing uber-geeks who believe the moon landing was staged on a Hollywood back lot. We are the disciples of Al Gore who actually purchased a copy of his DVD. We subscribe to the theory that global warming looms and will kill us all, just like a meteor ended the dinosaurs. We believe that the pyramids were built by aliens, that UFO's regularly abduct red-blooded, tax-paying Americans, and that the government is actively engaged in a multi-national cover up to hide the existence of extra terrestrial life forms. We are a nation of believers that watched the X-Files and understand that, "The Truth is out there."

The Los Angeles Stadium Proposal Conspiracy
asterisk[AT]tinfoilonmyhead[DOT]com
 Commissioner Roger Goodell Tin Foiled


Sports Themed Wedding Invitations & Programs
  Minnesota Vikings Tin FoiledOn the heels of the impending lockout brought on by unsettled labor negotiations over the NFL's collective bargaining agreement, I find it interesting that two competing groups have emerged with proposals to build an NFL stadium in Los Angeles. How is it that a city with no NFL team has developed two seemingly unsolicited, competing proposals? With no indications from the league that it plans to expand or any concrete evidence that one of the existing thirty-two franchises might be marked for relocation, why is it that these two groups have come forward now? True, the City of Angels represents the largest television market in the nation without an NFL team, but LA had its chance. Twice actually, and both teams decided to leave their 90000 zip codes to give it a go in other cities. It just seems to be eerily convenient timing.

Amidst rumors of a potential move by the Minnesota Vikings to Los Angeles, we also have an announcement by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell that he intends to put an NFL franchise in London, England. Doesn't it seem like the wheels of a greater plot are slowly beginning to turn here? Collective bargaining agreement negotiations stall. The proposal for an eighteen game schedule, which will effectively add two more regular season, revenue generating games to the NFL schedule, is initiated. The threat of an owner lockout, intended to recoup some of the monies that are being issued to overpaid NFL players, is nearing the breaking point. How can the iniquity of these owners remain unchecked?

The Minnesota Vikings lease is set to expire after the 2011 season and Vikings Owner, Zygi Wilf, has not been shy about his demands for a new stadium in order for the team to remain in Twin Cities. On December 8, 2010, Wilf boarded his private jet bound for Los Angeles to meet with Magic Johnson, who has made no secret of his intentions to return pro football to Los Angeles. During his trip, Wilf and Johnson also met with Tim Leiweke of AEG, one of the architects of the aforementioned stadium proposals, which further fueled speculation that the team might be on the move. Wilf countered, stating that the visit with the LA group was simply for inspiration on a new building planned for Minnesota, but his manipulation of the press on this matter has been masterful. Four days later, the Metrodome roof auspiciously collapses, heightening Wilf's calls for a new facility. I sense something sinister here my friends, do I need to spell it out for you?

The city of Los Angeles has been without an NFL team for a decade and a half and this tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorist tends to believe that the NFL owners like it that way. Without an NFL team in the the largest remaining television market in the country, the threat of a move to Los Angeles is a key bargaining chip in strong armed negotiations between the team owner and his fans. These colossal NFL coliseums, like "Jerry World" in Dallas, are built to maximize home team revenue and increase profitability exponentially. State funded construction combines with unprecedented luxury level revenue (that's unshared) and mandatory personal seating licenses (for the privilege of purchasing season tickets in the new venue) and as fans we're supposed to feel bad for NFL owners. Give me a break! Angelinos, you guys are the key. You'll never get an NFL franchise because the just the threat of Los Angeles gives an NFL owner license to tighten the screws on his home fan base. They get state subsidized construction of a more favorable venue and tax incentives to stay in the area, so why would the good 'ol boys network give up that golden egg-laying goose. The city of Los Angeles is being played.  The NFL has no intention of granting another franchise to southern California, it's not going to happen.  Not in my lifetime.  Stay strong my friends ... the truth is out there. We are, The Asterisk ...

NFL Fan Tailgating Conspiracy
asterisk[AT]tinfoilonmyhead[DOT]com
 Commissioner Roger Goodell Tin Foiled



Printed Media is Dead ... Join us Online - FantasyFootballManifesto.com
  After years of restrictive regulations with designs on limiting every aspect of player behavior on and off the field, Roger Goodell and the No-Fun League have turned its "Evil Empire" gaze to it's fans. Player celebrations have been squashed, individuality in the NFL is routinely punished, and even the behavior of these prima donna athletes outside the game is restricted by the NFL's over arching Personal Conduct Policy. So with the game under control, our Dark Lord now looks to his underlings to impose a new set of restrictions, and it appears his focus has shifted to the American institution of Fan Tailgating. I smell a conspiracy my friends. Now I'll be the first to admit that NFL fan behavior can get out of line with that select few who are so hopped up on liquid courage that they become very juvenile and belligerent. The "accidental" spilling of beer on the guy in front of you, the tirade of drunken sailor cursing that flows from the main orifice, or the assertion of testosterone-infused physicality. Believe me it's getting old. Grow up fellas, you're spoiling it for the rest of us who know how to control ourselves.

The issue here goes directly to the heart of our right to freely assemble and consume game day foodstuffs and alcoholic beverages in a public environment, but therein lies the problem. Due to the fact some of the NFL's proletariat can't seem to hold their liquor, "for the betterment of the game", the NFL has decided to step in. The League is recommending that stadium lots open up a minimum of 3 1/12 hours prior to kickoff, thereby limiting fan consumption of alcoholic beverages before the game. The NFL's other recommendation is to restrict serving sizes in stadium concessions stands to no more than 20-ounces per beer. Both measures are deemed sufficient enough to curb excessive drinking and improve the fan experience inside the stadium. However, if the NFL is so concerned with excessive drinking, why do they continue to accept ten of millions of dollars in sponsorship deals from brewers like Budweiser and Coors? Why are beer company ads so prevalent throughout the NFL broadcasts on game day? Why are NFL players, Cheerleaders, and team logos so prominent in beer company displays, packaging, and promotions? I'll tell you exactly why, it's because the NFL is less concerned about the fan experience and more concerned about continuing to rake in record profits even in the midst of a global recession.

According to USAToday, "The league's overall attendance is off 2% through Nov. 16 compared to the same point last season. The average TV ratings and viewership for game telecasts were up 12% and 14% respectively through Nov. 9 compared to same period last year," so even with consumer spending down the NFL continues to remain healthy even as its fans lose their jobs and struggle to keep food on the table. If NFL fans are staying home and television viewership is up, why place restrictions on tailgating? Because there's more money to be made in the mark up of overpriced concessions and crappy beer to make up the 2% of lost revenue in ticket sales, that's why.

The NFL is fairly adept at recognizing another opportunity to squeeze their devotees for more money even in this economy. Limit serving sizes to 20 ounces? Okay, does that mean that concessioners will also be adjusting the price of this new smaller portion accordingly? Somehow my guess is no.  They'll rationalize maintaining the same price by suggesting that this price point will force fans to be more responsible with their alcohol purchases. Limit Fan tailgating to 3 1/2 hours? Is that so fans will be forced to pay for overpriced stadium concessions, thereby further lining the pockets of our tyrannical franchise overseers. What choice does the average fan have? This is the greatest game on the planet and we are in the midst of tough times. Sometimes a little familiarity, a little recreation is the order of the day and now the NFL wants to take that from us too. Can I offer up a couple pints of blood as well?

If the NFL is truly serious about improving the fan experience in each stadium, my suggestion, instead of cracking down on fan tailgating, would be to strike at the heart of the problem. The issue is not with the fans as a whole, the issue is with the drunk knucklehead who's directly affecting the game day experience of those around him. That guy is going to drink his share of choice alcoholic beverage prior to entering the stadium regardless of when the NFL decides he can begin tailgating. Our esteemed commissioner needs to stay the course and take greater measures to strengthen the Fan Code of conduct Policy. Instead of hiring these rent-a-cop stadium security guards that are more interested in watching a free football game than controlling the crowd, try renting some real cops. Most of the current crop of stadium staffer are more concerned about not getting in the way, that they rarely enforce "stadium policies".  Secondly, spent some money to educate fans on becoming more responsible for policing themselves. The text messaging system is a great start, but fans have to decide that unruly behavior is inappropriate.  When it is reported, stadium staffers need to do actually do something about it. Snatch back season tickets, throw the drunks out. Let's crack some skulls America.  We, are The Asterisk ...

Brian Cushing: Proof of an NFL Steroid Conspiracy??
asterisk[AT]tinfoilonmyhead[DOT]com
 Brian Cushing Tin Foiled



Sports Themed Wedding Invitations & Programs
  Brian Cushing Before and After SteroidsI'm not quite sure that we actually know the extent to which steroid use prevails within the National Football League and more importantly within the NCAA. The case of Houston Texans linebacker Brian Cushing, our reigning AP Defensive Rookie of the Year, is prime example. Prior to the 2009 NFL draft, rumors swirled that Cushing was using, but they were quickly dismissed as pure speculation.  I, for one, tend to believe that at the heart of most rumors there lies a cornel of truth waiting to be exposed.  Fast forward to the 2009 NFL regular season and we find that Brian Cushing failed a test in September for a performance enhancing drug on the NFL's banned substance list. At first details were scarce on the actual substance he tested positive for, as these test results are supposed to remain confidential, but eventually someone familiar with Brian Cushing's case, speaking under condition of anonymity, came forward to reveal that he had increased levels of HGC.  Not steroids, not HGH, but HGC.

"He had one low-level positive test for HCG in September, and then every test after that was negative," the person said. "He has said he has no idea where the positive test came from."

After the failed test, Cushing filed an appeal which the NFL allowed to drag on through the regular season and into the offseason. After exhausting the appeals process on the grounds that he tested positive for a non-steroidal banned substance, this month the NFL finally imposed a four game suspension on Brian Cushing effective for the start of the 2010 NFL regular season.

"I believe we presented compelling evidence during the appeal process to challenge the test results, and I disagree with and am disappointed by the suspension," Cushing said in the statement. "Bound by the decision of the league, I regret the situation it presents to the Texans' organization, my teammates, and our fans."

I'm certainly no medical expert, but the tin foil hat wearing conspiracist within me was compelled to take a quick visit to WebMD to lookup HGC. Very simply put, HGC is given to patients for one of two reasons. It's given to prepubescent boys who are not sexually developing properly to assist with the dropping of the testicles; and it's given as a fertility aid to women who are trying to conceive, because it can cause ovulation in combination with another drug. So why did this particular substance show up in Cushing's test? Well, it just so happens that HGC is also widely used by steroid abusers to help kick start the natural production of testosterone following their discontinued use of anabolic steroids. That's why HGC appears on the NFL's banned substance list, it's not a masking agent, it's a facilitator that can be used to restart natural testosterone production so a user can be more gradually weaned off of steroids. In my non-medical opinion, the "low level positive test" back in September and all subsequent negative tests thereafter make a lot of sense. Cushing was just dumb enough to get caught assuming that the HGC had been completely flushed from his system. So he was able to reap the training benefits of steroid use in the offseason and just before the start of the regular season he quits juicing. Considering that HGC is administered by injection, I also find it rather difficult to believe that athletes who test positive for it are unaware of how it shows up in a failed drug test.

The other interesting thing to note is that Brian Cushing is the third winner of the NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year Award to test positive for the use of performance enhancing drugs in the past ten seasons (Julius Peppers and Shawne Merriman fill out the triumvirate of exposed juicers). What this says to college athletes who are looking to make a run at a career in the NFL is deplorable. Use whatever advantage you can to get into the NFL, win a big contract, and then worry about the consequences later. And the photographic evidence is everywhere ... just Google "Brian Cushing before and after". Does this not sound familiar? Didn't we look at photos of Mark McGuire and Barry Bonds scratching our heads back in the 1990's? Why did it take almost a year for the NFL to suspend Brian Cushing? Why are we making excuses for the suspension on the grounds that the positive test was for a non-steroidal banned substance? Why are we ignoring the fact that steroid use and HGH are more prominent in professional sports than we're willing to admit?  We are The Asterisk ...

Conspiracy Revealed: IOC Strips Chinese of Olympic Bronze

Bronze Medal from China

Scandal of the Ages: Documents
Reveal Underage Chinese Gymnast

Records Say Chinese Gymnasts
May Be Under Age

NY Times.com
by: Jere Longman and Juliet Macur



 
  Dong Fangxiao of China Stripped of Bronze MedalChalk up another win for the basement dwelling shut-ins still living at home with mom and dad. Those tin foil hat wearing American patriots got another one right, as recently the International Olympic Committee ruled that the Chinese women's gymnastics team used an under aged athlete to win bronze during the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. The International Gymnastics Federation recently uncovered evidence that Dong Fangxiao of China was only 14 years old during the 2000 Games, a clear violation of IOC rules which state that gymnasts must turn 16 during the Olympic year in which the games are held to be eligible for competition. The 14 year old Dong was therefore disqualified and as a result China has been ordered to return their medals, which will now be awarded to the United States.

"We are pained over this incident. We will learn a lesson and further strengthen all kinds of administrative work on athletes and resolutely prevent a similar incident from happening again," the Chinese association said in a statement carried by the official Xinhua News Agency. "The attitude and stance of the Chinese Gymnastics Association is completely the same as that of the IOC."

Although China losing bronze over age falsification is a colossal embarrassment to a country that puts such a heavy emphasis on Olympic achievement, it was barely covered in the communist nation's state-run media, as no doubt the Chinese government will seek to quell any potential controversy within its own borders. We have little doubt that this IOC ruling will have much of an effect on the iniquitous practices of the Chinese Gymnastics Association. They will continue to deceive us, pushing their prepubecents into the limelight on the Olympic stage, but in the future they're certain to employ more compelling document falsification tactics. Maybe they print the new passports and birth certificates a few years in advance, rather than just a few months before the games begin, allowing for a more realistic, simulated document aging process. Perhaps they trot out their fourteen year old midgets with husbands or genetically enhanced with excessive body hair to further corroborate their claims. As far as I'm concerned, what we're seeing here the establishment of a pattern with the Chinese that can be backed up by hard evidence. The Chinese falsified documents for the 2000 Sydney Games and they did it again during the 2008 Beijing Games, rationalizing as host nation, that bolstering their own team's performance in the prestigious gymnastics competition must be part of the home team advantage. Based on this new incontrovertible evidence, I for one demand a more comprehensive investigation into the Chinese Gymnastics team from the 2008 Beijing Games. These mighty-mites, led by the markedly underaged He Kexin (she was actually photographed missing a baby tooth during the games), won six medals at the Olympic Games including a controversial team gold medal for the host nation over the heavily favored US Team. I'm certain if they dig deep enough, evidence of another cover-up (business as usual for the unscrupulous Chinese Gymnastics Association) will percolate to the top nullifying another Olympic Medal claim by the Chinese. I'll even help you guys out. Click through the links at the left for more information on how the age claims of the Chinese gymnasts from 2008 were contradicted by printed media in China posted on the Internet.  There's something sinister going on in the People's Republic of China, but we stand ready, we are The Asterisk.

  Tin Foil Hats for Kobe and LeBronFollow me on this one. Ever since Colin Cowherd, from ESPN Radio's The Herd, noted the parallelism between sports conspiracy guy and the tin foil hat wearing, alien hunter underworld, the powers that be have noticed the shift toward credibility that our movement is slowly gaining. Its exposure through the World Wide Web has brought to light multiple conspiracy theories that have been confirmed. The New England Patriots Spygate scandal has been exposed; Tim Donaghy and crooked NBA referees have been placed on notice; A-rod's use of performance enhancing drugs has been brought to light; and I'm still waiting for allegations of HGH running rampant through pro sports to surface. The theory that there's a consorted effort to manipulate the world of professional sports is finally assembling a legitimate case. For every Spygate that’s uncovered or PED scandal that surfaces, our efforts are legitimized. This coalition of parental basement dwellers from the world of sports and from the sci-fi community has expanded our current network, resulting in an exchange of ideas, yielding positive results. Colin Cowherd may just have serendipitously stumbled onto a real life Mel Gibson Conspiracy Theory, and by giving it airplay, caused concern among those hell bent on suppression of the truth. Before Colin started talking about these conspiracies, we were dismissed as wack-a-doos, but now we have a voice.

For those who seek to manipulate their cash cow in plain view of the American public, the solution is simple - this voice of dissent must be discredited at all costs; and how better to discredit conspiracy theorists than to purposely sabotage one of their theories.

When the NBA playoffs began, it didn't take a genius to figure out that Kobe Bryant’s LA Lakers and LeBron James's Cleveland Cavaliers were on a collision course to meet in the NBA finals. Both have been touted as the heir-apparent, the next Michael Jordan, and much like the Lakers-Celtics NBA Finals last year, this matchup was too good to be true. It was too obvious. This is precisely why LeBron and the best team in the NBA were derailed en route to the Finals, why he wouldn't shake Dwight Howard's hand at the end of the game. LeBron knows the fix is in. He knew it from the time the playoffs began and now it’s playing out on the greatest stage in the world in an attempt to destroy the credibility of those that seek to expose the man behind the curtain. Think about it, conventional conspiracy wisdom would dictate that the highly marketable Celtics and Mavericks franchises should advance - both were given their walking papers. Polarizing figures like Mark Cuban or popular players like Dwayne Wade should be part of extended playoff runs, but both were purposely quieted in an effort to discredit the conspiracy. It’s actually rather brilliant, combat conspiracy with anti-conspiracy. Make everyone aware of the fact that if the NBA Finals were being manipulated, wouldn’t it be LeBron and Kobe that met in the Championship round? Open your eyes, you don't see the blatant smut campaign that’s going on here?  We do.

Colin, keep doing what you’re doing. You have them running scared. As for our part, we stand ready … monitoring otherworldly transmissions, seeking out extra terrestrial life forms, and following the exploits of tyrannous operations and conspiracies in the world of professional sports. We are The Asterisk …

  General Roger Ramsey - Roswell Crash debrisIn July of 1947, an unidentified flying object crash landed at the Foster ranch near Roswell, New Mexico … this we know. The location of some strange debris was reported to the local sheriff by New Mexico rancher William “Mac” Brazel who was out checking on his sheep after as fierce thunderstorm the night before. The sheriff informed Roswell Army Air Field Major Jesse Marcel from the field’s 509th Bomb Group Intelligence Office to investigate the rancher’s claims. Major Marcel accompanied the rancher to the crash site and returned with some samples of the debris.

On July 8, 1947 a press release was issued by Lieutenant Walter G. Haut, the Public Information Officer at Roswell Army Air Base, stating that the wreckage of a flying disk was recovered near Roswell, New Mexico. Based on this press release, the Roswell Daily Record published a front page article about the incident. Hours later, the first press release was rescinded and a second release was issued stating that the 509th Bomb Group had mistakenly identified pieces of a high-altitude weather balloon as the crashed saucer. Pictures of General Roger Ramey, from the Eighth Air Force in Fort Worth, Texas posing with the “weather balloon” debris were circulated with the retraction. At the time, the issue was dropped, but many question the validity of the Army’s explanation …

Over 60 years later, Roswell, New Mexico remains a hotbed of UFO activity. The Roswell Incident, as it is known today, is cited as a prime example of the overarching government conspiracy specifically intended to conceal the truth; that Aliens are among us and have been visiting this planet since the beginning. Furthermore, that there is, and there still remains, a coordinated effort on the part of our government to suppress these visitations from public record. We’re all familiar with the alien autopsy descriptions of Roswell mortician Glenn Dennis, or the eye witness accounts of the craft appearing in the skies over Roswell in early July. We’ve heard about the Majestic 12 documents, intended to brief incoming President Dwight Eisenhower, and the Project MOGUL explanation, involving high altitude balloons that were meant to detect sound waves emitted by Soviet weaponry. I, for one, remain unconvinced that something otherworldly did not occur at Fosters ranch back in 1947, but who am I, just one lone voice of dissent?

Truth or urban legend, I find it interesting that these extraterrestrials had enough sense to visit our planet on a holiday weekend. Now almost 62 years later, it affords for a great opportunity to host an annual UFO Festival in the City of Roswell, New Mexico. As any great tin foil hat wearing conspiracy theorist will tell you, the UFO Festival in Roswell is actually real. This year it’s being held July 2-5, 2009 attracting Uber-Geeks and respected UFologists to this sleepy little community every year to take part in this event. Lectures by world-renowned experts and a multitude of photographic opportunities, including the parade down Main Street, an Alien Costume Contest, and fireworks display, await anxious Alien Hunters. Even the International UFO Museum and Research Center is an existing entity that stands in downtown Roswell as a resource dedicated to uncovering what happened in that field so many years ago. If you’re looking for the spot, government conspiracy guy, look no further, you’ve found it.

  Alex Rodriguez on the JuiceSports Illustrated was the first to uncover a Major League Baseball survey testing, which took place in 2003, that listed 104 players who had tested positive for performance enhancing drugs. This afternoon baseball's poster boy, Alex Rodriguez, who was on that list of players, has come forward in an interview with ESPN's Peter Gammons admitting the use of performance enhancing drugs from 2001 - 2003.

Remember when 50 home runs was a rarity in Major League Baseball? When the thought of multiple guys hitting 50 in the same year was damn near impossible? It was the 1980's, an entire decade during which not one major league ball player hit 50 home runs. In 1990, Cecil Fielder hit 51 and then it's wasn't until 1995, when Albert Belle blasted 50 homers, that we saw another player equal the feat (see the chart at the left). After the 1995 season, all of a sudden 50 home runs was eclipsed with regularity. Since 1995, 14 players hit 50 or more home runs twenty-three times ... remember Brady Anderson? Look at the number of 40+ home run hitters over the same time span and compare those numbers to players hitting 40+ in the early nineties. So what happened around that timeframe to bring about such a dramatic swing in home run production, you ask?

Well ... two strike shortened seasons caused frustrated fans to turn their backs on major league baseball for one. Owners were losing money as ballparks looked like ghost towns and the momentum of the baseball machine slowed to a crawl.  Strike-weary, embittered fans stayed home instead of heading to the ballpark as attention turned away from our national pasttime. Baseball needed something to bring its fans back to the game, to atone for the betrayal of a canceled World Series. Then all of a sudden, as if right on cue, there was surge in home run production. Baseballs were flying out of major league ballparks in unprecedented numbers. There were suspicions of a more tightly wound ball, corked bats, hitters that had finally caught up with pitchers, the purity of the game was at stake and we were making excuses! But the truth is coming to light. It’s becoming more and more evident that Major League Baseball apparently turned a blind eye to the steroid use that was running rampant throughout the league during our so-called "steroid era". Well the chickens are coming home to roost, my friends. A-Rod drops a bomb this week and there remain 103 other athletes on that list that have also tested positive for PED’s.  I'm waiting for allegations to surface that the MLB actually encouraged it's athletes to begin using for the betterment of the game. Whether steroid use was encouraged or not, one thing is clear ... MLB ballplayers got the message.

My issue with the entire situation is the purity of the game. Since the 1870’s professional baseball has been a mainstay in this country. The Pro Baseball Hall of Fame has stood as hallowed ground, honoring the best of our game and preserving the game’s integrity. It stands as a measuring stick to compare the accomplishments of athletes of the past to athletes of our current era. I agree that records are made to be broken. As guys get bigger and stronger, as training and nutrition methods improve, as medical technology prolongs careers, eventually these records will fall. But when chemicals that are designed for athletic performance improvement enter the equation, there is no purity. How can athletes of the steroid era seriously be considered to be on par with baseball’s icons? Ruth, Maris, Mantle, Aaron.

So as the steroid era draws to a close, considering the astonishing confession of Alex Rodriguez, should an asterisk be placed over the entire era? When will the Human Growth Hormone bombshell be dropped? How can you compare an era of cheaters and liars to an era when baseball was pure? How can records that have stood for decades fall at the hands of those that would dishonor the game by cheating? You tell me friends, was there a concerted effort on the part of Major League Baseball to introduce anabolic steroids to their players? Did Major League Baseball make a deal with the devil to bring back their once proud sport, our so-called "national pastime"?  You be the judge ...

  Tony Romo Jason Witten Conspire against TOThis week as NFL Pundits descended upon the hotbed of activity that is the NY Giants - Dallas Cowboys interdivisional rivalry, they were treated to some new bulletin board fodder as claims of yet another NFL conspiracy began bubbling to a rolling boil in the Dallas Cowboys locker room. With a wild week in sports that focused on the aftermath of the Plaxico Burress shooting (How does one actually shoot himself, anyway?), one cancerous divisive force made way for another, as the boil-infested goiter that's been growing on the neck of the Dallas Cowboys organization has resurfaced once again, like a massive white-headed zit. Terrell Owens, who's no stranger to conspiracy allegations, finds himself at the epicenter of this burgeoning Oliver Stone biopic as he sets to dismantle yet another playoff contender. According to Owens, as reported by Ed Werder of ESPN, Tight End Jason Witten and golden boy quarterback Tony Romo have been meeting in secret to develop their own special plays specifically designed to exclude Owens as an offensive option. As a result, the Cowboys offense has been sputtering as of late and Owens's numbers are down from last year. Owens infers that the close relationship among the two has resulted in some very curious play calling on the part of Tony Romo that can only be attributed to these secret meetings which are hell bent on conspiring against the highly talented, thirty-five year old receiver. He's even gone so far as to include wide receivers Patrick Crayton and Roy Williams to confront offensive coordinator Jason Garrett about the situation. The trio showed up at Garrett's office earlier in the week to complain about how Tony's not playing fairly with the other kids. Are you kidding me? Conspiracy theory? Tell me about the lights seen over Phoenix or the black helicopters circling overhead, but a secret meeting involving a quarterback and his tight end setup to devise special plays that purposely exclude their most potent offensive weapon? That's your great NFL conspiracy? That's priceless!

So let me get this straight, with Romo under center, I'm guessing he audibles to the secret playbook, scratched haphazardly on loose-leaf paper and bound in an old Trapper Keeper. The offense then immediately realigns, setting up complicated blocking schemes that are designed to free Witten, as T.O. is simply told to "Go Long!". did I get that right? I'm sure the tandem spends hours drawing up plays in the dirt and cackling maniacally as they plot to single-handedly destroy Owens's career. That's just diabolical! I see, so with Crayola markers and an old camping lantern, I'm envisioning Romo and Witten holed up in their rickety, little tree house and huddled around an old soap box table as they write the bylaws for their newly formed Anti-Owens club, S.M.O.O.P. - Systematic Manipulation Of the Original Playbook. Oh that's rich! I knew Terrell Owens might have a couple screws loose, but with wild unfounded allegations like that, I should have him write for my site. I don't know sports fans. Is there a secret society subversively working behind the scenes to sabotage the career of Terrell Owens? Have they been working all along to undermine his efforts in San Francisco or Philadelphia, meanwhile crafting an anti-Owens smut campaign that plays out in the media? Is the dynamic duo of Tony Romo and Jason Witten in cahoots with the likes of Jeff Garcia and Donovan McNabb? Is it the Illuminati, the New World Order, is it THE MAN? I don't know, but if I were Terrell Owens, I'd watch my back. It appears somebody's out to get you..

Chinese Gymnasts 14, Official Document
The Epoch Times
by: Jan Jekielek & Anna Yang
 

  Chinese Gymnast Conspiracy - Nastia LiukinWomen's Olympic gymnastics ... The Asterisk is not ashamed to acknowledge his appreciation for this slice of Americana on the world stage. Admit it, you're familiar with the names, Alicia "A-Sacks" Sacramone, the illegitimate offspring of a Soprano's mob boss, Nastia "Nasty Nas" Liukin, east coast hip hop embodied in the form of a Russian midget, or little Shawn "Shawn-John" Johnson, the eventual P-Diddy clothing line endorsement deal is imminent. But unlike you perverts, my admiration of women's gymnastics is purely a respect for the fluidity of form, for innovative artistry, for the pursuit of the Perfect 10 ... or seventeen ... or whatever convoluted system they've dreamed up for this year's games. It's a deep-seeded regard for the commitment of these young medal seekers in their quest to maintain America's traditional dominance over the summer games ... nothing more. I admit it's curious that I find myself parked in front of the TV with my girlfriend during the women's competition; while scarcely finding time for the men's gymnastic pursuits, but what can I say? I'm an American damn it, and the Olympics just brings out the tin foil hat wearing patriot in me.

This year's competition in Beijing has been ripe with controversy from the start. From the digitally enhanced fireworks during the opening ceremony and lip-syncing cherubic youngster (who apparently was easier on the eyes than the actual performer), to the inconsistent scoring system that seems hell bent on suppressing American point totals, but at the same time elevating the results of the tinkerbell prepubescents from China. Now I can admit that I have no formal training in the evaluation of women's gymnastics. I tend to rely heavily on Tim Daggett and Elfie Schlegel to let me know when I've just seen something exemplary, but the conspiracy theorist in me just can't let go of the fact that the Chinese Government has somehow convinced the International Olympic Committee not to thoroughly investigate the claims that their athletes are underage. The rule is clear; to compete in Olympic gymnastics an athlete must turn 16 years of age in the year the Olympic games are held. The reason is two-fold. A younger athlete, unaffected by puberty, has a marked genetic advantage. Underdeveloped hips spin quicker, allowing younger athletes to perform more complicated routines. The shorter stature and lower weight also allows for effortless movement across the balance beam and between the uneven bars. Younger athletes are also fearless due to inexperience, failing to grasp the pressures of competition. Clearly at least three of the six gymnasts from China are under the age of 16, as evidenced by numerous articles that appeared in China before the games, listing the ages of Jiang Yuyuan, He Kexin, and Yang Yilin and touting these younglings as China's next great hope for 2012 in London.  If these resources are correct, it would place them now at ages 14 or 15.  All recently uncovered articles and online sources have mysteriously disappeared (censored no doubt by the evil empire), and the People's Republic of China waves their freshly printed Chinese passports as evidence of the girl's claims (that's not suspicious at all). Nor is the fact that the Chinese athletes on average are 3.5 inches shorter and 30 pounds lighter than their American counterparts. I understand China has invested eight years of preparation into the games to break onto the world stage, and yes there is an inherent home team advantage with the athletes performing in Chinese venues, but rigging the games with falsified documentation and bringing a Girls Gymnastics squad to compete in the Olympic Women's gymnastics category is reprehensible ... and the botched attempt at a cover up leaves me insulted.

One last thought on the Nastia Luikin / He Kexin tie for gold on the uneven bars. Wouldn't we all favor a reasonable tie breaker to once and for all determine an Olympic Champion? Like an uneven bar showdown between the two or a fight to the death with spiked baseball bats in a pit of snakes? Something to make the games more interesting … all we're looking for is a little "closure" here. What do you think?

  Brett Favre Announces RetirementI know I'm not the only one who's incensed by the concentrated media coverage surrounding the Brett Favre "will he or won't he" saga as it plays out to millions of disinterested NFL fans. But not since "Ross and Rachel" or "Dawson and Joey", has a relationship between two star-crossed lovers garnered so much unnecessary attention. ESPN has done more than its part to force feed its viewers with every miniscule, speculative detail as it unfolds, and the thought of continued coverage over the next several days bores me to tears.  The issue of Favre's reentry into the NFL has been so beaten to death by the media, and more importantly, it's been completely mishandled by the Green Bay Packers organization, that I'm more than ready to disassociate myself from the entire debate and move on with the business of football. The bottom line is, if the Green Bay Packers  wanted to retain the services of Brett Favre, they could have handled the entire situation behind closed doors.  Instead, a huge production ensued and a three ring circus sprouted up surrounding rumors of his return. If the Green Bay Packers were so hell bent on moving on without him, they should have just let him go. Let him go to the Minnesota Vikings, let him go to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers or the New York Jets ... allow Brett Favre to go out on his own terms. Is one inter-division defector really going to grotesquely skew the outcome of two divisional matchups a year?  In a word ... no. 

What does intrigue me about this entire situation is the greater issue it may elude to in professional football. Many of us unwittingly assume that the steroid era which marred professional baseball couldn't possibly infiltrate our precious true national pastime (the sport of professional football).  Could it? The Green Bay Packer organization was so quick to dismiss a Brett Favre comeback; and after taking the Pack to the NFC title game the year before, wouldn't you think they'd be clicking their heels to have their adopted son back in uniform, donning the green and gold?  It begs the question ... what is the problem with Brett Favre? How did the cornerstone of the Green Bay Packer organization fall so far out of favor with his former employer? How is it that a 38 year old quarterback, seemingly impervious to injury, manages to stay injury free for nearly sixteen seasons?  And why is it that in the twilight of his career, Brett Favre appeared to improve, when the skills of similar quarterbacks were in decline?  Did a potential HGH conspiracy force Brett Favre into retirement?  I've seen the rumors on forums and blogs.  Pure speculation? Yes.  But plausible ... maybe.

Don't get me wrong, there is no accusation here, the words "alleged Human Growth Hormone use" are not being uttered in connection with any specific professional athlete, living or dead. This is simply topic on the table, submitted for your consideration. How many players in the National Football League are currently using HGH?  How many athletes in a game of inches, in a game where every hundredth of a second counts, wouldn't do whatever it takes to gain the slightest advantage over their competitors, either to set themselves up for their next big contract or to prolong a career?  Is HGH the fountain of youth for the new millennium? It's certainly no secret that celebrities have jumped on the Human Growth Hormone bandwagon.  So why not some of the greatest athletes in the world of sports, considering that currently there's no way to test for the illegal use of HGH?  If you were certain there was no way you would get caught, and millions of dollars are at stake, what would you do?

Dr. Edgar Mitchell (Apollo 14 astronaut) – Aliens and UFOs do exist!
CaliforniaC hronicle.com
by: Ian Brockwell

Listen to the Radio Interview
w/ Dr. Mitchell on Kerrang! Radio




 
  Dr. Edgar Mitchell - Aliens Amoung UsAlright Colin, you asked for it so here it is ...

Alien conspiracy theorists received a little vindication on Thursday, as Dr. Edgar Mitchell, a 77-year old, former NASA astronaut, broke rank during a radio interview to deliver the message that we are not alone in the universe. Aliens have been in contact with and have visited the planet earth on several occasions, and Mitchell lent credence to the fact that for the last 60 years there has been a concerted effort on the part of the government to cover up these visitations and hide them from the general public.

The Apollo 14 veteran, claimed that the Aliens were described as "little people who look strange to us," by NASA personnel who have had direct contact with the beings. He also warned that our technology is "not nearly as sophisticated," as theirs and, "had they been hostile ... we would be been gone by now".

"I happen to have been privileged enough to be in on the fact that we've been visited on this planet and the UFO phenomena is real," Dr Mitchell said.

"It's been well covered up by all our governments for the last 60 years or so, but slowly it's leaked out and some of us have been privileged to have been briefed on some of it."

"I've been in military and intelligence circles, who know that beneath the surface of what has been public knowledge, yes - we have been visited. Reading the papers recently, it's been happening quite a bit."

Dr Mitchell went on to divulge that the Roswell incident was in fact real and similar alien visits continue to be investigated.

"This is really starting to open up. I think we're headed for real disclosure and some serious organizations are moving in that direction," Dr. Mitchell told host Nick Margerrison of the English talkradio program The Night Before on Kerrang! Radio out of Birmingham, England.

In a statement to Kerrang! Radio, a NASA spokesperson had the following comment in response: "NASA does not track UFOs. NASA is not involved in any sort of cover up about alien life on this planet or anywhere in the universe. Dr Mitchell is a great American, but we do not share his opinion on this issue."

Digesting all of this information, as thrilling as it may be for the UFologist within me, I have to take issue with some of the statements made by Dr. Mitchell on the grounds that I still contend that the moon landing was staged on a Hollywood backlot ... I've seen the convincing photographic evidence! I also find it rather timely that Dr. Mitchell has decided to come forward with this new evidence just prior to the premiere of the new X-Files movie this weekend. But the "Truth is out There," our first dissident has made his way over to the dark side and more are sure to follow. So stay tuned America...

The WNBA's Cat Fight Conspiracy
Brawling Basketball Babes ... sounds like the headliner for a roller derby event, but unfortunately or fortunately for the decade-old, fledging WNBA, this was the scene earlier in the week that dominated newsreels and left sportsfans (who've probably never watched a WNBA game) scanning YouTube for video clips of the fight. On Tuesday night, July 22 at the Palace at Auburn Hills, the WNBA's Los Angeles Sparks and Detroit Shock squared off in a good 'ol fashioned cat fight with 4.6 seconds remaining in a game won by the Sparks. The entire incident, resulting in unparalleled exposure to a league that rarely  
generates national headlines, begs the question, was this simply a case of heated, physical play rising to a boil or a uniquely contrived publicity stunt perpetrated by WNBA insiders desperate to put their struggling league on the map. It's no secret that the WNBA has been reporting annual losses each year since its inception in 1997.  WNBA franchises practically beg fans to fill the seats in empty arenas throughout the country and as far as a lucrative television contract is concerned, WNBA matchups have a hard time posting better ratings than the syndicated sitcoms pitted against them in evening time slots. Commissioner David Stern's pet project has been largely financed by the NBA and after eleven years of annual losses you have to wonder if the pressure from NBA owners is starting to get to Stern. The WNBA has been forced fed to NBA fans for years in a feeble attempt to bring a cross-over fan base from its big brother league.

"We got next!", what a joke.
"Expect Great.", expect great what?

What the NBA brass is unwilling to admit is that men, who dominate the pro sports fan demographic, are just not interested in women in sports (unless its super-models in sports), and the women who watch professional sports are relatively uninterested as well. The only way to save the WNBA, which has been on life support since its formation, is to do something drastic, something that will bring universal attention to the game, something like the clutching and grabbing of a bunch of chicks going at it on national TV. Which is why I believe there is a concerted effort on the part of commissioner David Stern to resuscitate the WNBA at any cost. Let's look at the facts. The WNBA's fisticuffs played out at the Palace at Auburn Hills, the same venue that recently hosted another brawl between the Pistons and Pacers that garnered national attention and resulted in a multitude of player suspensions. It involved two of the better teams in the WNBA representing a large basketball fan demographic, and call me crazy, but am I the only one that sees the Patrick Ewing parallels in the L.A. Sparks draft day selection of Candace Parker?  The most recognizable female college athlete in the nation goes to the the largest basketball market in the country to team up with the league's most recognizable star, and nobody bats an eyelash?  It there a greater force at work here? A conspiracy to save women's basketball? Did the commissioner David Stern orchestrate what played out in millions of home on YouTube Tuesday night?  You bet he did.

The Tim Donaghy Chronicles



Free Tim Donaghy

Bart Simpson on TinFoilOnMyHead.com



MediaVault - Read These
for more Info on Donaghy
  Tim Donaghy FoiledFrom Spygate, to steroid abuse, to crooked NBA referees, the work of The Asterisk is not complete until all sports conspiracies are exposed. Tackling the accusations of former NBA referee Tim Donaghy, with regard to an unspoken policy of preferential treatment to fix the outcome of NBA playoff games, is next on our agenda. The NBA is a business, the NBA is sports entertainment, but is the NBA fixed? Assume for a moment that you favor a Polly Anna, rose-colored treatment of professional basketball, you believe that the game is pure, that athletes are not on performance enhancers, that NBA referees follow the letter of the law when it comes to calling fouls and exercise their authority consistently. Well we’d all be lying to ourselves wouldn’t we. It’s no secret that NBA officiating traditionally favors its stars (Jordan rules, anyone?). I’m sure what was said in recent weeks shocks very few fans of the NBA. For us realists, those grounded on a planet we call earth, there’s a lot more to the words of Tim Donaghy than the accusations of a desperate man latching onto his fifteen minutes of fame. Call me crazy, but based on what I’ve seen in a playoff series that delivered on the marquee Lakers vs. Celtic matchup, I’m not so sure these accusations are baseless. Maybe there is an Illumianti-led underground stronghold of powerful decision-makers guiding the balance of power among the 30 franchises of the NBA. I would call them the Almighty Dollar.

The fact of the matter is that no other professional sport is more at the mercy of the will of their officiating crew than the National Basketball Association. Ask yourself, in what other sport are penalties or fouls more devastating to the outcome of a game or the playing time of its star athletes than in professional basketball? In how many other sports can the outcome of the game be determined by a single player? After six fouls (all subjectively levied by the judgment call of an official), the player is done for the night. That’s a lot of power wielded by an individual that can call the foul as he sees it without challenge. How many times have you seen two quick fouls on a star player that send him to the bench, allowing the other team to build an insurmountable lead? How many times during this year’s playoffs did we see a seven game series? How many times were free throws wildly unbalanced in favor of the home team? How many times were 20 point leads whittled away to nothing? Is there a conspiracy headed by commissioner David Stern to skew playoffs results in favor of maximizing revenue, increasing profits, or globalizing the game to new levels of popularity? You tell me….

The Patriot Conspiracy


Arlen Specter for President
  After months of accusations and the possibility of a Senate Judiciary Committee being called in to investigate the the New England Patriots, we're now that Spygate is Over?This is completely unacceptable!  On his May 14, 2008 broadcast, Colin Cowherd on ESPN's "The Herd" challenged those conspiracy theorists who disagreed with the way the NFL is handling ... check that, concealing the New England Patriots SpyGate abomination, to set up a website entitled "TinFoilonMyHead.com" to voice our opinions.  That's precisely what this is. If you object to how the current administration is rolling over for the Mighty New England Patriots and their asterisk, asterisk, asterisk, multiple championships.  If you find it peculiar that the NFL has destroyed the Spygate tapes and levied penalties before seeing all of the evidence.  If you're of the opinion that bending or misinterpreting a set of rules that are followed by every other team in the National Football League is the definition of the word cheating, let your opinion be heard.  New England Patriots Spygate Conspiracy

Posting Policy:  We post the best of the best entries received each week, so bring your A-Game each time you write in.  One liners,
                          unless they're fairly clever will be largely ignored.  The best posts of the month will be carried over to the
                          following month and placed below in our Tin Foil Trophy Award Section , subject to user scrutiny.   Send us   
                          your conspiracy theories, government cover-ups, and subversive analytical jargon, we're not afraid ...
