Jerry Angelo has been the manager of Chicago bears since 2001. Already 10 years he became general manager of the Chicago bears in 2011. There is the horrendous news that he has been fired. Facts are still coming out, but numerous reports are confirming that Jerry Angelo is fired as the General Manager of the Chicago Bears
Team said that ”President and CEO Ted Phillips informed Jerry Angelo this morning he will not return as the team’s general manager.”
According to the team’s official site ”No other changes will be made. That includes Lovie Smith, who will remain Bears head coach.”
Angelo, among many Bears fans was an unpopular figure, and regardless of the team being reasonably successful, has drawn ire for his mistake to draft adequately at the offensive line and skill positions. Angelo has made several free agent purchases and trades, such as the Cutler trade and signing Julius Peppers, but has not been as successful at drafting key parts. When Cutler got the injury, the lack of a backup and the problems that Cutler was shielding were exposed. He has also taken a hard stance with Matt Forte, the other star player on the Bears offense.
NY Jets star Santonio Holmes, A player once known as “Tone Time, is getting many critics for quitting on the team. His teammate said that “Holmes was benched for the final minutes of the Jets’ season-ending loss at Miami after arguing with teammates in the huddle.” Other teammates acknowledged the problem publicly but didn’t want to go into detail. “It’s been disturbing for a while,” guard Brandon Moore said.
Via Jets.com, the veteran running back LaDainian Tomlinson gave opinion aboutthe issue in his postgame remarks. Tomlinson said that:
“Let me just say there were some guys in the huddle that were unhappy with Tone ‘s demeanor. When you have a group of guys that’s fighting their butts off, and one guy, for whatever reason, their demeanor’s not with them, you’re going to get some guys to say something to him and tell them how they feel. That’s what you got today.”
“I’ll tell you what, it’s tough for guys to follow a captain that kind of behaves in that manner. You’re a captain, guys looking at you. You’ve got to lead by example. You’ve got to play your tail off until the last play. And when that doesn’t happen, you will have guys look at you in the way that captains shouldn’t be looked at. You should always put yourself out there as a leader.
You know what, that’s something you’re going to have to talk to Tone about. He didn’t say anything. I think, once again, it’s demeanor. Body language tells players everything. I think that’s what it was.”
My advice to him, I’m going to talk to him. We’re going to keep it between us, the advice I’m going to give him. I don’t want to put it out in the media, the stuff I will tell Tone. But we will have a conversation.
PASADENA, Calif. — the 2012 Tournament of Roses spread human flowers to a worldwide in bright Monday. This parade fulfilled hundreds of anti-Wall Street protesters. The 123rd annual New Year’s Day event, with the theme “Just Imagine,” flowed along downtown Pasadena to the cheers of hundreds of thousands of sidewalk spectators. More than 40 million people were estimated viewing this year’s march of 44 floats. There are 116 marching bands and 22 riding troupes on U.S. television. The two-hour parade came several thousand anti-Wall Street protesters in a pre-arranged demonstration. The thunder of the retreating marching bands blended in the air with chants of “Banks got bailed out, we got sold out” as the Occupy the Rose Parade demonstrators retraced about 1.5 miles of the 5.5-mile parade route before veering off for a rally near City Hall.
They brought a 250-foot-long banner that said “We the People” to represent the U.S. Constitution. Some also held a 70-foot-long octopus made from recycle plastic bags that represented the tentacles of perceived corporate greed. As the protesters marched by, some Rose Parade spectators yelled “get a job” while others snapped photos and cheered.
Three truckloads of Los Angeles County sheriff’s deputies gave guarding to this parade, and the protest was noisy but peaceful. Police, parade and city officials held some meetings with the protest organizers to ensure that they did not disrupt the parade.
“Everything went very, very well. We’re very pleased,” police Lt. Phlunte Riddle said.
