Deestroying calls out Antonio Brown after receiver threatens to sue YouTube star

first_imgAs for his beef with Brown, this all stems from some videos on Deestroying’s channel. In October, Brown and Deestroying collaborated on a video where the former NFL star invited the YouTube personality to his house. In December, the two collaborated again as Deestroying and Brown did some football drills.This all set up a more recent video where Deestroying issued genuine concern for Brown following the receiver’s arrest in January. Brown was charged with burglary with battery, burglary of an unoccupied conveyance and criminal mischief. He’s currently awaiting trial on these charges.”I know I’m gonna get hate for this video but I don’t care,” he wrote under the video. “I really don’t [give a f—.” Antonio Brown is my friend and I want to see him be better.”Not too long after this video was uploaded, Brown went on Instagram Live and threatened to sue Deestroying in a bizarre rant. On Tuesday, Deestroying uploaded a video where he went through all of Brown’s points and reacted to them individually.Warning: video contains explicit language The part regarding Brown starts at around 3:35.Brown repeatedly says he’s going to sue Deestroying for “infragment” (he likely means infringement). It’s not completely clear what Brown is getting at in his video, but he seems to be upset that Deestroying is using Brown’s name in videos. But he’s only made three videos of Brown and two were videos that Brown was featured in. And it’s not illegal for him to make a video about Brown where he simply just talks about his friendship.It’s also not clear if Brown is being completely serious with his video and does plan to sue Deestroying or whether he’s just trying to get more attention to expand his YouTube brand. Also, Deestroying’s YouTube video says he’s being sued, but it doesn’t appear as if Brown actually moved forward with a lawsuit. Probably because there’s nothing he can really sue for that would make sense. Antonio Brown went on an Instagram Live rant recently in which he claimed he was going to sue YouTube star Deestroying.Deestroying’s real name is Donald De La Haye, and you may remember him from a few years ago. He made headlines in 2017 when the NCAA told him to delete or demonetize his YouTube channel if he wanted to stay on the UCF football team as a kicker/punter. He chose his YouTube channel, giving up his scholarship and NCAA eligibility. He’s had plenty of success in that decision — he’s now at over two million subscribers on the platform.last_img read more

Foul Tip…Opening Slayed

first_imgDick Groat, Barry Bonds and Andrew McCutchen at PNC Park. (Photo by Julio Torres)It remains slightly cool and breezy on the PNC Park playing field and I have just returned from the Pirates initial batting practice for the 2014 season. Pittsburgh appears not to be staggering out of the gate unsure of anything in 2014 but swaggering into the season.If attitude is an accurate barometer of success then this team will not back their way into the 2014 playoffs as they did in 2014. The Pirates will be crackin heads and taking names. Whoever the competition may be whether it is the St. Louis “Cards” or the Cincinnati “Redlegs,” Pittsburgh’s divisional NL Central rivals, or any other ballclub, the battling Buccos seem to be coming out of the gate ready to take care of business.During the opening pregame ceremonies, 2013 National League MVP Pirates centerfielder Andrew McCutchen received his MVP plaque from former Pirate great Barry Bonds,(who won 7 NL MVP awards himself) and Dick Groat. Former Pirates and Detroit Tigers manager Jim Leyland presented the MLB manager of the year award to Pirates skipper Clint Hurdle. I was appalled and disappointed at what happened next.Although I along with everyone else expected it, when it happened it didn’t lessen the shock. The Pittsburgh fans booed former Pittsburgh Pirate and San Francisco Giant outfielder Barry Bonds when he was introduced as if he was their mortal enemy. There have been many players that have left Pittsburgh who were cheered heartily when they returned playing for the opposition. Jaromir Jagr and Chicago Blackhawks forward Marian Hossa immediately come to mind. There may have been a smattering of boos when Hossa took the ice recently in a Penguins 4-1 victory at the Consol Energy Center but nothing like the acid based and venomous boos showered upon Bonds.Bonds, with a ready smile, displayed no such feelings toward Pittsburgh or Pirate fans.At the pregame press conference someone asked Bonds whose idea was it for him to participate in the opening ceremonies? Did he approach the Pirates or did the Pirates approach him?He replied casually without a hint of hostility in his voice, “they [the Pirates] approached me?” When Bonds was asked why it was so important for him to be here he answered with both dignity and passion.“This was a wonderful city that I played for. I got to play for one of the best managers in all of baseball. I loved it here, Pittsburgh was a great town, a great city. I wanted to play with [Jim] Leyland for a whole career, but things change; it’s an honor to be back here.”It is sad and represents a black eye for Pittsburgh that love is short and hate lives forever.Courier Sports Columnist Aubrey Bruce interviewing Al Martin in 1995.Back in 1995 when outfielder Al Martin was patrolling the banks of the Monongahela for the Pirates there was a period when Martin was booed for no obvious reason. I asked him what it was like to be booed “just because.”He said: “I try not to let it bother me, but we’re all human and there are times that I become frustrated especially when people walk up to me and say; “you’re a bum you don’t deserve all of that money.” But in the end you have to consider the source.”As far as the game goes we are now in the top of the ninth, starter Francisco Liriano has long exited the mound and Pirates strongest closer, NL All-Star Jason Grill is now throwing “smoke” for the Buc’s.The Chicago Cubs are not expected to do much in the NL Central division this season and that makes them a very unpredictable team now and in the future. The game has remained scoreless through nine innings and Chicago has demonstrated to the Pirates along with their starting pitcher right hander Jeff Samardzija that they are a scrappy bunch.The bottom of the 10th has rolled around and “goose eggs” still occupy the scoreboard. Both teams have managed to eke out 5 hits and all of a sudden, wham! Neil Walker sends one out of the yard and presto, the Pirates win 1-0 and raise the “Jolly Roger” on opening day……great start to hopefully a prosperous and winning year for the Pittsburgh Pirates.Aubrey Bruce is the Senior Sports Columnist for the New Pittsburgh Courier and can be reached at: abruce@newpittsburghcourier.com or 412.583.6741last_img read more

Smoke begins to lift on future of Charlie Lake Fire Department

first_imgResidents from across the Charlie Lake area turned out, Wednesday, to provide input on the future of their local fire department and what they want or expect out of their fire protection services.Several residents questioned why the fire department’s governance model had to change and wondered what changes they might see to both their insurance and taxes. A few residents stated that they are in favour of paying slightly higher taxes to avoid paying double their home insurance rates if the area acquired unprotected status.- Advertisement -Dave Mitchell and Associates Ltd. is the consulting firm hired by the Peace River Regional District to look into various governance models for the Charlie Lake Fire Department. The consultants have been conducting interviews with everyone from the firefighters to residents and regional district officials.We wanted to wait to hear from all parties involved in the fire department before we made any specific recommendations to the District, says President Dave Mitchell.However, the consultants are on a deadline and must submit a draft report to the Regional District by the end of the month.Currently, the Peace River Regional District contracts out fire protection services in the area to the Charlie Lake/Grandhaven Fire Protection Society. However, the PRRD terminated its agreement with the Society, giving one year’s notice, until March 31, 2012, to continue running the department. After that time, the PRRD will be taking over the management of the fire department.Advertisement One of the main problems the fire department has faced recently is a shortage of daytime volunteers.Yet, Mitchell says the Charlie Lake Fire Department is not alone and its problems are similar to those that other volunteer departments are facing across the province.For many residents, the situation came down to cost and wanting to see cost comparisons for the various potential governance models before providing further input. Mitchell says those costs are dependent on the Regional District.PRRD Chair Karen Goodings says she expects the District will hold further meetings to review the potential governance models and obtain additional public input before any decisions are made.Advertisementlast_img read more

Senegal, Madagascar draw in tragic AFCON qualifier

first_img0Shares0000Sadio Mane, pictured here at the World Cup in Russia, played for Senegal in the match in Madagascar marred by tragedy © AFP / EMMANUEL DUNANDANTANANARIVO, Madagascar, Sep 9 – At least one person was killed and nearly 40 were injured in a stampede ahead of an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier Sunday in which Madagascar hit back twice to draw 2-2 with Senegal.The casualty figures were confirmed by the director of a hospital in the Malagasy capital Antananarivo, where the Group A match was staged in the 30,000-capacity Mahamasina Stadium. Witnesses told AFP there was a stampede at an entrance to the venue just before the 1130 GMT (2:30pm local time) kick-off.One person was killed and 37 injured, including two who were said to be in a serious condition with head and chest injuries.Fans had queued outside the stadium nine hours before the start of the eagerly-awaited match with Liverpool star Sadio Mane in the line-up of 2018 World Cup qualifiers Senegal.The result left Senegal and Madagascar — who lie 83 places below their opponents in the world rankings — as co-Group A leaders with four points each after two rounds.Senegal beat Equatorial Guinea 3-0 in the first round 15 months ago while consistently improving Madagascar triumphed 3-1 in Sudan.Moussa Konate volleyed the visitors into a 27th-minute lead in Antananarivo and Paulin Voavy levelled a minute before half-time by scoring in a goalmouth scramble.Keita Balde put Senegal ahead again on 62 minutes with a shot into the corner after a solo run only for Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly to concede an own-goal five minutes later.Mane, who scored his fourth goal of the season for Liverpool in a win at Leicester City last weekend, was well policed by the Malagasy defence.On Saturday, Equatorial Guinea edged Sudan 1-0 in Malabo through an Emilio Nsue goal in the other Group A match and are third with three points.Group winners and runners-up qualify for the 2019 Cup of Nations in Cameroon, which will be the first to feature 24 nations, up from 16 last year.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
