I had to do it! I had to create a blog so you and I could gripe about all of "The Crap" that we encounter everyday in our lives. Believe me, there is plenty! You can now come to this blog to Gripe because you have the right to do so. Over time, we will Gripe about topics ranging from sports to politics to just about all of the garbage that happens around us. When you Gripe, you can add your name or not. It's your right! You can vent any way you want. Use foul language if you are angry enough to and if you are offended, just Gripe It! Hell, we have been banned from Facebook twice! You can Gripe about people, places and things. The only thing I ask is if you are going to Gripe about someone and you use their name, make sure you have the facts straight. Otherwise they will sue your and my ass off! It's your RIGHT TO GRIPE! You can respond to one of our Gripes or you can lay down your own Gripe. It's easy. To post your own Gripe just email it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will get it on. You can also become an official "Griper". All you need to do is "Sign Up" and create an account.

The NFL - What A Joke!
First off, let me say that I was soured by the NFL about 3 years ago. The reason for the bad taste in my mouth comes from regional coverage of games that they instituted some years ago. I hate the Eagles, I don't like the Giants and I can't stand the Steelers. They all make me want to puke my brains out. Of course, these are the teams we see the most here in NEPA. I am a Packer fan and in order to see their games, they have to be playing one of the shit teams listed above or be on Monday Night Football. Otherwise, I have to buy the NFL package which cost a small fortune. I flat out refuse to do it. My Sunday's are now spent doing yard work and small repairs in the house. Not my idea of a relaxing Sunday!
The shit taste in my mouth for the NFL has now grown even more with the lock out and insane negotiations that have took place since the end of the last season. These filthy, greedy bastards just can't seem to figure out what to do with the billions of dollars in revenue that the NFL makes every year off all its sucker fans. I'll tell you what to do with all of the money, SHOVE IT WHERE THE SUN DON'T SHINE! You scum bag bastards! You make me sick to my stomach. Yesterday, the owners voted to ratify the latest proposal with the lone dissension coming from guess who...YES Al Davis of THE R A I D E R S! Say it, The R A I D E R S! The proposal immediately went to the players who everyone thought would ratify it by 8:00 pm Friday night. Of course, they did not! Now it sits in limbo due to the legal issues of the desertification of the players union several months ago. Thus, the Hall Of Fame game has been cancelled which will cost the people of Canton, Ohio millions of dollars in lost revenues. Way to go you greedy pigs! By the way, I threw up all over my porch this morning when I saw the big picture of Dion Sanders on the front of the sports page of The Times Leader. Here is a guy that couldn't make a down field tackle if his life depended on it and he is going into the Football Hall Of Fame. WHAT!
There are two questions that most NFL fans or should I say lemmings have concerning this mess. Number one, which was brought up by one of our Gripers Bob W. is, how can there be a separate union if the players are contracted by the teams and the owners? Good question! My answer, who the hell knows. These guys are all contracted individuals and they need to live up to their commitments. The owners don't contract with the union, they contract with the players. I say dump the union and tell the players report to camp or you are OUT! Once their pocketbooks started running dry you would see a stampede to camps. Most of these guys have blown their millions anyway and would turn desperate rather quickly.
The second question is the one burning on the minds of NFL lemmings everywhere. When will this disgrace end? Personally, I hope the entire season is cancelled. Compared to the college game, the NFL is like watching grass grow. I would rather watch a college football game any day over the NFL. As for this season, I would expect that all of these jug heads will come to some agreement soon so they can get the season off and running. By the way, did you know that 1/3 of the current players in the NFL either have no contract, need an extension or want to renegotiate their current contracts. This amounts to about 500 players. All of this has to be done before the rosters are completed for the season. A monumental task to say the least. I would think that the good players will hold the owners over a barrel for astronomical amounts of money while the mediocre players will take it in the back pocket. Only time will tell. My solution to this mess is for all fans to boycott the game which would send the NFL and its greedy players and owners into bankruptcy. Fans everywhere need to get their attention by telling them that we "Are as mad as hell and we are not going to take it anymore".
As of today, I have eliminated The Sports Gripe. I just didn't have the time to Gripe on more than one blog. I will add my sports Gripes right here on the R2G.
I was driving past the Hotel Sterling this past week and noticed that someone paved the part of River Street right next to the hotel. This new black top is right where they have it blocked off to traffic. ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME! They pave the part of the road where no one can go! They need to pave W. Market St right by the Guard building. I hit that pot hole the other day and lost a nut.
CHECK THIS OUT!
Please make sure you click on The R2G ads below. Heck, I might be able to make a few cents on it.
WHAT THE HELL DO YOU THINK?
Every week we will post a poll question with a few answers to choose from. We want to know what the hell you think!

This one is a no brainer. Ariel Castro may actually be the schmuck of the century. If you don't know what he did then you should take the bridge.
WTF! I thought it was a hot blonde chick. NOT!
