Jalen Ramsey Finally Discusses the AJ Green Fight, Doesn’t Disappoint

There’s no interview in sports quite like a Jalen Ramsey interview. He’s sassy AF, only drops truth bombs and doesn’t back down… he continued to keep it real this afternoon when finally discussing his melee with AJ Green.

Now what in the world did Jalen say to get AJ to go full-WWE on him? Honestly, not much. Jalen told media that he called AJ “weak” and “soft” after every play, which eventually led to the reserved wide receiver blowing up and putting the guy in a chokehold. He added that he didn’t even touch on anything personal with AJ.

Here’s the video you’ve been waiting three long days for:

Neither player was suspended by the NFL for fighting, though AJ is reportedly looking at a fine to go along with his bruised ego.

Now seems like a good time for Jalen on Steve Smith Sr.:

How A Parking Garage In Anaheim Led To The Great Disney/Film Critic Fight Of 2017

Alyssa Rosenberg, critic-at-large with The Washington Post, announced yesterday that she will no longer be attending advance screenings for any Disney film, including those from Lucasfilm or Marvel. Outlets such as The A.V. Club and Flavorwire are also refusing to attend press screenings for Disney movies. Today, in a joint press release, four major critics associations (Los Angeles Film Critics Association, the New York Film Critics Circle, the Boston Society of Film Critics, and the National Society of Film Critics) formally denounced Disney and have voted to disqualify their films from year-end awards consideration.

These boycotts won’t be lifted until Disney ceases the media blackout it has placed against the Los Angeles Times, which includes barring their film critics from attending advance press screenings of Disney films.

Yup, you heard me — The Mouse House has directed their corporate Death Star at the Rebels (er, media), who are banding together to fight back!

But how did we get to this ridiculous, insider-y Hollywood standoff? It all started on September 24th, 2017, when the L.A. Times published an investigative article regarding The Happiest Place on Earth.

As you can imagine, Disney has extensive business ties with the city of Anaheim, CA — home to Disneyland. In addition to the tourism boost, Disney’s theme parks are also a major source of employment for locals. But the question being increasingly asked is whether the area residents are receiving enough benefits from their corporate overlords to justify the subsidies and other financial considerations received by Disney from the city.

To illustrate this, the Times piece opens with the story of the massive 10,241-space parking garage outside of the theme park:

The cash pours in too: Each vehicle pays $ 20 to park at the Mickey & Friends facility, $ 35 for a preferred space close to the escalators and elevators.

Even if the parking garage fills just half its spaces, it would still generate more than $ 35 million in annual revenue and easily hundreds of millions of dollars over the life of the structure.

That money all goes to Walt Disney Co. The city of Anaheim, which owns the garage and spent $ 108.2 million to build it, charges the company just $ 1 a year for the lease.

More than 20 years after Anaheim agreed to pay for the parking facility as part of Disneyland Resort’s expansion, it has become a symbol of the city’s complicated and increasingly tense relationship with its biggest and most powerful corporate citizen.

The whole two-part investigation is fascinating, and it doesn’t stop in Anaheim: The hundreds of millions of dollars in incentives that Disney receives for its various ventures around the world outpace those received by other media conglomerates. Without a doubt the Mouse House is a savvy dealmaker. And to be fair, the relationship between Disney and Anaheim is a complex one, built in layers over many decades. There is no easy answer, but the piece pulls no punches when it comes to questioning whether Disney is getting more than it’s giving. Naturally, Disney didn’t like that — so they decided to retaliate against the L.A. Times, starting with the press screenings for Thor: Ragnarok.

In a note to readers on November 3rd, the L.A. Times explained that Disney films wouldn’t be a part of their annual Holiday Movie Sneaks section:

This year, Walt Disney Co. studios declined to offer The Times advance screenings, citing what it called unfair coverage of its business ties with Anaheim. The Times will continue to review and cover Disney movies and programs when they are available to the public.

Disney explained their stance in a statement, picked up by The Hollywood Reporter:

We regularly work with news organizations around the world that we don’t always agree with, but in this instance the L.A. Times showed a complete disregard for basic journalistic standards. Despite our sharing numerous indisputable facts with the reporter, several editors, and the publisher over many months, the Times moved forward with a biased and inaccurate series, wholly driven by a political agenda — so much so that the Orange County Register referred to the report as ‘a hit piece’ with a ‘seemingly predetermined narrative.’ We’ve had a long relationship with the L.A. Times, and we hope they will adhere to balanced reporting in the future.

It should be noted, however, that if there were inaccuracies in the investigative piece, Disney doesn’t seem to have asked the Times to correct them.

So — Disney retaliates against the L.A. Times for unfavorable news coverage by barring them from free, advance press screenings of films? Why should anyone give a shit about this? Look — around here, we have a soft spot for Overlords of any kind, but we have an even bigger soft spot for the freedom of the press. Rather than engaging in public dialogue with the Times to explain their disagreement, Disney chose to punish them. And yes, losing access to advance screenings IS, in fact, a punishment. If other outlets have an advantage and can get their reviews up sooner, they will reap all those hot, sexy page views, while the L.A. Times will have to wait to review the film until their critics can attend screenings on opening night, just like the rest of us. And to add insult to injury, the critic will have to PAY for a ticket, i.e. give Disney cash to see the film.

Could they just throw in the towel and refuse the review ANY film from Disney? Perhaps. But again, journalistic integrity matters (even in entertainment), and not reviewing Disney movies will cut a large portion of the box office landscape out of their reporting. This year Disney still has Pixar’s Coco and Lucasfilm’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi to release. And next year?

filmsched.jpg

That’s without taking into consideration any of Disney’s television offerings or other businesses. This is why the recent moves by critics at other outlets to stand in solidarity with the L.A. Times matters. No corporation, or politician for that matter, should be able to suppress stories or interfere with a free press. And while this may seem like small potatoes in the grand scheme of things, the fact that Disney controls SO GODDAMN MUCH and is bothering to play this dirty, about fucking press screenings, should be a huge red flag.

Here at Pajiba, we mostly write our reviews after paying for opening night tickets. Sure, some of our writers live in cities where press screenings are a thing. I, on the other hand, live up a fucking mountain and frequently review films in an empty theater at 1pm on Friday. Instead, we’re going to take a different kind of stand. Today, we’re announcing the disqualification of ANY actor who performs in a Disney property from making it into the finals of next year’s Pajiba 10. That’s right — kiss your Evans and Hemsworths goodbye! Hell, even Lin-Manuel Miranda will be on the chopping block, because he just HAD to join that Mary Poppins reboot. So if you love smart sexiness, you’d better hope Disney ceases its blackout against the L.A. Times. Otherwise the Pajiba 10 will be the Pajiba 2: Ruth Negga and John Cho.

Wait a minute… maybe we should rethink this…

Dolphins Fans Fight Lone Raiders Fan at Hard Rock

Hard Rock Stadium had all the action this past weekend. We saw a tanked Miami fan get KO’d by a Miami-Dade cop on Saturday, and Dolphins and Raiders fans made sure to keep the momentum going on Sunday with a little skirmish in the stands.

We’re not sure what sparked this brouhaha, but it appears Derek Carr fan was trying to walk away from the confrontation when a Phins supporter suddenly ran up the stairs to shove him in the back. Another dude then gets in on the action after the shove which leaves Carr fan no choice but to throw hands:

Best part about that video? Easily Carr’s girl putting her hands on her hips and yelling, “You’re not going anywhere!”

Warriors Fan Gets In The Mix, Gives Bradley Beal The Finger After His Fight With Draymond Green

Surely by now, you’re waking up hungover and seeing the fight last night between Draymond Green and Bradley Beal. Shocking, I know, that Draymond was involved in some sort of altercation. It was looking like we were getting dangerously close to a Malice In The Palace situation when it spilled into the first row behind the goal, but it got cleared up and everybody moved on.

I don’t want to focus on the actual fight, though, but a few minutes after. How about this Warriors fan mixing it up with Bradley Beal in the tunnel? This is liquid courage at its finest.

Middle finger right to the face followed by a nice “f*ck you” as they walk by each other. Some balls on that guy. He’s lucky Beal laughed it off because he could’ve very easily gone full Artest on him there.

They say Warriors fans are fairweather and most are, so I just want to shout out this guy who was ready to throw down for his squad in October.

Tyrese Gibson Is Bringing Maximum Levels Of Messiness To His Child Support Fight

tyrese

Earlier this week, Tyrese Gibson maybe broke a temporary restraining order by flying a banner over his 10-year-old daughter’s school that read “NO MATTER WHAT, DADDY LOVES YOU SHAYLA.” He also bombarded her school with deliveries of flowers, balloons and a fruit arrangement. Much like the movie series he appears in, you could say that Tyrese’s method for his latest set of stunts is fast and furious. Fast, because he shows no signs of slowing down all this drama. And furious, because it’s almost like there’s a tiny army furiously working overtime to think of ways to make this mess even messier.

Tyrese and his ex-wife Norma Gibson appeared in court three times this week to discuss the custody agreement in place for their daughter Shayla. Norma wants full legal and physical custody of Shayla while Tyrese learns to be a better parent in therapy. TMZ says that on Tuesday, Tyrese showed up to court in head-to-toe white. When asked why, he said it was because he wasn’t treating their court meeting like a funeral. On Wednesday, he wore gray.

On Thursday, both Tyrese and his wife Samantha Lee were dressed completely in black. When asked again why, Tyrese responded that it was because this time he was going to a funeral. Norma reportedly testified in court yesterday about all the allegedly fucked-up things Tyrese is guilty of. Tyrese believes that’s the last anyone is going to hear about that. I wonder if they served those little triangle funeral sandwiches after?

“It was a funeral because it was the death of a dialogue. There’s been a dialogue of accusations of abuse that’s been following me for eight years. And it all died today. No one will ever walk up to me, assuming and thinking, that I did any of the things I was accused of.”

RIP to the abusive parent dialogue. Which would be true, except that Tyrese barely waited for the corpse to get cold before he pulled Dr. Frankenstein and brought it back to life. TMZ says that Tyrese filed documents accusing someone of coaching their daughter to tell phony abuse tales in order to get a temporary restraining order. He also implies Norma is just bitter because he has a new wife.

Tyrese’s weird pretend funeral celebrations were short-lived. Sources tell TMZ that Tyrese checked himself into a Los Angeles hospital last night after complaining of chest pains and feeling dehydrated. TMZ caught up with Tyrese as he left the hospital last night. According to Tyrese, he was in the hospital due to anxiety and dehydration, which was brought on by spending all day in court with no water or food.

I call bullshit on that no water excuse. Every courtroom on TV and movies has a pitcher of water and a tray of glasses. The only thing people seem to do more in court than dramatically yell “I object!” is pour water from plastic water thermoses. Even Judge Judy has water, and those trials are barely 12 minutes long!

Tyrese Just Made His Fight Over His Daughter Even Messier

Los Angeles premiere of 'Can't Stop, Won't Stop: The Bad Boy Story'

Tyrese’s relationship with his 10-year-old daughter Shayla is currently in a very bad state. Earlier this month, it was reported that Tyrese was being investigated by Los Angeles County Child and Family Services for claims made by his ex-wife Norma Gibson. Norma alleged he spanked their daughter so hard she couldn’t sit down. Norma also was looking for full legal and physical custody because she was afraid Tyrese would try to take Shayla out of the country. Some parents might step back and think, huh, this is a real mess, I should probably put aside some money for my lawyers and lay low for the next little while. Tyrese didn’t do that.

According to The Blast, what Tyrese did was blow a bunch of money on an embarrassing public stunt in the sky above Shayla’s school yesterday. A plane flew over Shayla’s school in Van Nuy and it was pulling a banner that read: “NO MATTER WHAT, DADDY LOVES YOU SHAYLA.” Shayla is set to testify against Tyrese in court today. Sources tell The Blast that the message was meant as an attempt to influence Shayla’s testimony.

Unsurprisingly, the message was not well received. Shayla reportedly burst into tears and spent a good chunk of time in the principal’s office. The rest of the school children were brought inside while the plane flew overhead.

I’m guessing Tyrese took a page from some kind of creep’s guide to establishing contact, because not only did he fly a plane with a message to Shayla yesterday, he also reportedly had the following items delivered to her school: a card, balloons, flowers, a teddy bear, and a fruit arrangement. You know you went overboard when you make the actions of an obsessed stalker look restrained. Shayla didn’t even get all the gifts; sources say that eventually the deliveries got to be too upsetting and they just stopped telling her she was getting stuff.

Norma’s lawyer believes that both the banner and the deliveries were Tyrese’s way of circumventing his current temporary restraining order barring him from making direct or indirect contact with Norma and Shayla. Her lawyer also believes that it showed Tyrese’s “erratic state of mind.” Norma spoke to The Blast and said that she doesn’t want to take Shayla away from Tyrese, just that she wants him to go to therapy to help him be a good dad. TMZ says that Norma filed a police report, because she believes that Tyrese’s plane stunt was a violation of the restraining order.

Tyrese hasn’t responded to this, but he did post a video of himself slow-dancing with his dog and a cryptic, somewhat confusing message to Shayla.

A post shared by TYRESE (@tyrese) on

10-year-olds are mortified by their parents on a daily basis. But to take it to a humiliating new level by sending weird gifts and airplanes to their school all day? His dog is right to bite at his face like that. I hope that dog is around to aggressively snap at Tyrese’s ankles the next time he thinks about picking up the phone to order flowers from FTD.

Steelers Fans Fight Each Other, Polamalu Fan Gets Busted Open

The Steelers handled the Bengals with ease on Sunday, but the joy of pummeling a hated rival apparently wasn’t enough to stop a couple of Steelers fans from throwing down in the stands. And this wasn’t some BS shoving match either — punches flew and blood was spilled.

We’re not quite sure what caused the beef between Antonio Brown fan and Troy Polamalu fan, but No. 43 probably regrets dragging down his foe, because the guy was a bloody mess after this close quarters exchange:

Sidenote: I could have lived without the five-second shot of that dude’s butt crack.

Florida State Fan Wipes Ass With Miami Fan’s Hat After Short Fight

The NFL fan scene was underwhelming yet again today, but it’s not a total loss as we’ve got video of a Florida State fan and Miami fan throwing hands after Saturday’s wild rivalry game.

As you can see below, FSU fan appeared to be on his way to getting knocked out, but he smartly bailed on the fight and turned the tables by stealing the guy’s hat instead. He then gets tailed for a bit before wiping his ass with the Miami merch — this incident is really as petty as it gets:

Honestly Miami fan should probably just toss the desecrated Miami visor and treat himself to a replica Turnover Chain.
