The Deion Sanders Agenda

I often times find myself wondering how someone like Deion Sanders has a job talking in-front of a camera.  These types of jobs should be relegated to people or former players that take pride in what they do.  I watch quite a bit of NFL Network but if Deion or Warren Sapp are playing a big role on set then I change the channel.  Life is too short to waste any time listening to the kind of rubbish that comes out of clowns like them.

I however don’t think that Deion is just an annoying analyst.  I think that he is a bad human being who lives his life for no other reason than to make money.  He claims to be this great mentor, meanwhile he never has anything good to say about anybody (except the equally annoying and messed up Ray Lewis).

A couple of years ago, a few weeks into the season, he claimed Rex Grossman to be the best QB in the NFC East.  The Redskins had the best record at the time but are you kidding me?  Grosssman was benched the following week.  In that same conversation Michael Irvin proclaimed that he would take any other QB in that Division over Grossman.  He made Deion look stupid. Because Deion is stupid.

So let’s get to the Dez Bryant situation.  Deion apparently mentors people and gives them advice.  I have never ever heard of a mentor or a role model ditching out on someone when they are at their lowest point.  Yet here was Deion “cutting his umbilical cord” from Dez when he needed him the most.  I thought to myself, first of all, be thankful Dez, but secondly I thought, why?

Then it came to me.  I heard a report that Bryant backed out of a deal Deion had set-up with Under Armour because Bryant thought the shoes were uncomfortable.  This is when Sanders became up-set with Bryant.  Seems he had something to lose when Dez backed out.

Later Deion was saying things like “I’m not losing any sleep” (over Bryant).  Doesn’t sound like much of a mentor to me.It appears that Sanders will only stick by you if you don’t actually need him, not that he can provide much of anything.  His life is in shambles (much like Sapp’s), and all he is good for is contradicting himself.

Very recently the NFL concussion lawsuit came to a close, with a settlement being reached.  Sanders went on record saying “the game is safe, I don’t buy all these guys coming back with concussions. I’m not buying all that.  Half of these guys are trying to make money off of that deal”.  Lo and behold last week Sanders filed a claim against the NFL stating that he is 86% disabled.  Wow it never ends, what a joke.

So the next time he looks into the camera with a stupid comment, followed by the words “did I stutter?”  Maybe he should stutter, it might help his lawsuit gain some momentum.  I for one won’t be watching because I will have changed the channel long ago already.

    Jake Wall is an Idiot! Enough said.

      Right on! Another internet tough guy… Get picked on much?

      • Richard Storm

        yeah, but he does have a point on him ditching out on Dez during Dez’s lowest point in life…What kind of roll model does that?? I personally don’t like Sanders, because he never has anything nice to say about the Cowboys…That’s okay, though…I don’t consider him a real Cowboys…He was just there for the ride and a easy Super Bowl ring…

    Those who doubt the truth in this article need to do their homework and take a closer look. Deion has always been self serving and anybody who believes otherwise has had their head in the sand. The only reason I listen to him is to get a good laugh.

    “He made Deion look stupid. Because Deion is stupid.”

    Jake, you really need to find yourself an English mentor. This article was almost not worth reading, but I’ll have to respond. First off, do you have the stats on the number of kids/young adults Deion has mentored? If not, check it out before you slam him about “He claims to be this great mentor, meanwhile he never has anything good to say about anybody” unless you are only talk about pro athletes. Also, Deion’s “self serving” nature (that discus mentioned) has been working for decades in front of the camera. So messing with a successful formula is a receipe for disaster.

    • TheJaikster

      I get that he helps kids and all that jazz. You guys are missing the point. Good job folks, thanks to people like you I get to see him on t.v.!

      • JoeDaBeast

        Then what IS the point? If it was “missed” maybe it was not made. Message!!!

        • TheJaikster

          Relax, the point I was making is that he is a hypocritic, fool who gives absolutly no insight. If you are not good at your job then you should not have one. I appreciate you taking the time to read the article!

            You’re welcome.

    Jake is 100 percent correct. Deion is a douche. As a mentor, you have a responsibilty to help these so called trouble young men and women. But with nothing in it for Slime time, he moves on to his next money making venture. Glad to see Dez move on with the proper mentorship in Jordan. Deion needs to go make sure his kids are taken care of before anything else.

  • DezJimmar

    Jake, you have described this fraudster to a tee. Everything that Deion does serves a narcissistic, self-serving purpose. His school, Prime Prep Academy does not even belong to him. His name is nowhere on any documents nor is he on the board of the school or the sponsoring agency. He has not donated one penny to the school, yet he draws a salary from it. Deion mentors kids? Yeah right! His “TRUTH” organization is another money-making cash cow for him. Those kids and their parents pay for everything, including uniforms and travel. The volunteers pay for their own freight, even down to the coaches shirts that they wear. I think the IRS needs to look into all of the money-making scandals he has created This so-called “man of God” is nothing more than a two-bit con man who loves money more than anything else.

    This guy knows the real Deion Sanders. He is so self-center and will throw his mama under the bus to save his loony brand. He constantly talk about God on his twitter. What a joke. Just recently, his former Cowboy’s teammates did not rejoin his Prime Prep Academy football team this year. The word is they had enough of this clown. Deion is always in the news for the wrong reason and everyone need to read all the article on the Dallas Observer website that’s been written about his scam school. As a matter of fact, please google other articles about Prime Prep Academy shamble. He hangs out with a crook as a business partner. Why Roger Goodell has this man as a analyst is beyond me. This man is a wife beater and if he didn’t have that Collin County Judge in his pocket, he would never have his kids. How parents allow this irresponsible dude around their kids is really strange. Its just a matter of time he’ll be in the news with financial (foreclosure) issue. People despise this dude.
