Jerry Angelo used to be the general manager of the Chicago Bears. He’s the guy who both traded for Cutty! and refused to give Cutty! an offensive line or any wide receivers worth a shit. He also did something much more egregious than that though.
He concealed domestic abuse.
Because — as we’ve always known — the Chicago Bears are a bunch of fucking wife beaters. Inexcusable, but not surprising from a despicable bunch like that.
Next to polluting Wisconsin and driving like an asshole, beating women is the favorite pastime of men from Chicago. So obviously, the Bears…
Seriously, Angelo openly admitted that he concealed hundreds of cases of domestic abuse during his years in the league. Listen to this shit. When he learned of an incident, Angelo said this would be his response.
“OK, is everybody OK? Yeah. How are they doing? Good. And then we’d just move on. We’d move on.”
And why would he move on?
“Our business is to win games,” Angelo said. “We’ve got to win games, and the commissioner’s job is to make sure the credibility of the National Football League is held in the highest esteem. But to start with that, you have to know who’s representing the shield.”
“We got our priorities a little out of order,” he said.
Now, of course the Bears released a statement denying any knowledge of this. Like, why would we know that our players are a bunch of shitheads? We’re not the Minnesota Vikings.
No. They didn’t really say that. They said this.
“We were surprised by Jerry’s comments and do not know what he is referring to.”
In other words… “Duh?”
So obviously the Bears are just going to plead ignorance here and not do anything about anything. Not even a, “Hey, we’ll look into that because this is something that we take seriously.”
Nope. Not the fucking Bears.
