Certain mythologies—whether derived from the Greek, Roman, Mayan, African or “Martian” cultures where oftentimes somewhere lurking in the background or standing blatantly in the foreground; chronicles of encounters with mutated dragons, serpents and many other “imaginary” or “substance induced” creatures—are often passed on from generation to generation. These monsters seem to have tormented the comfort of man for at least a millennium or two. By today’s standards we would simply define them as “lizards on steroids.” Take the case of NFL Hall-of-Fame and Western Pennsylvania running back Tony Dorsett. Dorsett has surpassed legendary status since he roamed the sidelines of Hopewell High School and the University of Pittsburgh gridiron as the “biggest little man” on campus. Dorsett was All-American “scatback” in high school. He was all world in college; and when he strapped on the pads to play for pay, he was all-universe as an NFL running back.In August of 1985, Tony Dorsett was faced with and forced to dodge a two multi fire breathing dragon; the Internal Revenue Service, a.k.a. the IRS, the Dallas Cowboys and Joe Q. Public. Dorsett was not forced to avoid and sidestep bloodthirsty. headhunting defensive safeties, linebackers or defensive linemen. His opposition were economic “piranhas” intending to devour all of the awards that Dorsett had sacrificed his body and mind for from peewee to pro football. This was the same Tony Dorsett that according to wikipedia.com, “was drafted by the Dallas Cowboys with the second pick of the first round of the 1977 NFL Draft.” The Cowboys traded the 24th pick in the draft and three second-round choices to the Seattle Seahawks to move up to take Dorsett. Dorsett’s agent was Michael Trope, known as Mike during his days as an NFL agent. Dorsett signed a five-year contract for a reported $1.1 million.”As soon as Dorsett began to experience trouble with “dough” then his familiarity with the loyalty of the coach and the team that had coveted him badly was no longer the rule than the exception. In a Sports Illustrated article written by Douglas S. Looney in August of 1985 titled, “Thrown For Some Big Losses” Dorsett was covertly and overtly mocked and ridiculed. Why? Well it seems to me it was just because he wanted to get paid. Hey folks before we continue let’s explore how and why economic “terrorism” has existed and continues to exist in the world of sports especially when it comes to compensating minorities for their services.

Powered by Firework Portuguese megastar Cristiano Ronaldo has called for greater protection of the Amazon rainforests after several wildfires in recent months destroyed huge areas of the forest, mainly in Brazil. The largest rainforest on the planet, is home to more than three million species of animals and plants and approximately one million indigenous people. While the wildfires have surged an alarming 83 per cent this year, it has left a devastating effect on an area that plays a vital role in Earth’s ecosystem.Advertisement Brazil is facing growing international criticism over its handling of the Amazon, 60% of which lies in the country and the Juventus forward, has called for immediate action and took to Twitter saying : “The Amazon Rainforest produces more than 20% of the world’s oxygen and it’s been burning for the past 3 weeks.”Advertisement Many Brazilians are blaming their President Jair Bolsonaro for pledging to develop areas that rely heavily on mining and farming when he came into power at the beginning of the year, despite conservationists warning it would doom the rainforest. And earlier this month, Norway and Germany suspended funding for projects to curb deforestation in Brazil after becoming aware of the changes to the way projects were selected under Bolsonaro. But the Brazilian President who initially denied help from international donors is now claiming that the Brazilian government lacks the resources to fight a record number of wildfires burning in the Amazon rainforest.
