Jack Dorsey Is The Most Powerful Man In Football

Total258 Twitter is the head coach of your favorite college football team.  Yes, even at Alabama. Nick Saban is no longer in charge. He answers to Twitter. The 68-year-old winner of six national championships is one disgruntled-player tweet from disavowing all that he believes and running his team in accordance with Twitter bylaws. That’s the ...

  1. It is weird to see how all forms of adversity have been rejected by “young people”. They simply cannot handle it. My wife and I experienced struggles through the process of conceiving a child. Nothing makes you feel quite as powerless as struggles with something that is so far out of our control. This didn’t stop us however and in fact now with a baby on the way we understand the hardship and mental and emotional toll we paid to have this kid and how much more we appreciate this future child.

    Furthermore, marriage itself is a great lesson in adversity. You’re in a constant state of compromising with another individual. It’s in no way easy even though the two people love and like each other.

    I personally struggle with the idea of fair. I want things to be fair. God however, never promised fair or a pain free life. Pain, suffering, and adversity are always going to be present in life and people would save a lot of personal heartache and even societal heartache if they just accepted this fact and worked hard to handle adversity and look to grow from it.

    You’re on a roll with these articles! OUTKICK is making moves!

  2. Hey Jason,
    I always enjoy hearing about things that helped shape your life and your outlook on life!!! You’re way too young for memoirs lol, but any book you would write would be a best seller!
    I have to smile when you mention Nick Saban, the ultimate control freak, and how his world has been rocked. He used to be the closer when signing prospective athletes, now he’ll need a social media coach/closer to get the blue-chipper. And to your point, how long before we have a “Twit Bowl”?
    Best wishes,
    Rick

  3. I’m the same age as Jason and I can attest to how things have changed drastically. My son played high school football at my old high school.

    It was like a different sport entirely. Soft doesn’t quite say it. And my son confirmed how soft it was.

    After graduation in 2017, he complained about how hard the coaches were on him. I used to attend practice and his games and I don’t recall ever hearing a cuss word. WTF!?

    Needless to say, every hard lesson I learned from my coaches in the early to mid 80’s, he did not. I learned that discomfort is the only way to grow as a man.

    My son was ‘Uncomfortable’ about being coaches with toughness, and seemed to think that was a bad thing. His mother (my ex) of course coddled him. Made him softer. Divorced Moms in my home town, want kids to be surrounded by pillows. And must never feel uncomfortable.

    My football coaches helped create the Man I am today. It likely would not have happened without those football years.

    My son’s coaches did what they could without upsetting him or his mom.

    Great work Jason. You are a column machine!!!

  4. As usual 100% spot on Jason. Struggle is part of life. “To live is to suffer. But to survive well that’s to find meaning in the suffering” DMX. These young athletes don’t want challenges they just want to coast with no resistance. Tough coaches no matter the level teach us about ourselves.

  5. Well said, Jason!

    I am a teacher. One of my students, a girl, who recently graduated wrote me a great goodbye message. The first sentence of the message stated: “Thank you for teaching me how to man up!”

    This should be the duty of all people who are in charge of raising youth in America, regardless if they teach Kindergarteners or 22-year-old student-athletes about to enter the real world.

  6. When I saw that you (Jason) left FS1 and moved to Outkick I was so excited to follow you and I really love your honest commentary about the mind numb babies in sports. The miseducation of these fools by government run schools is staggering yet predictable, I have seen it coming for years now. I really love sports but will no longer support or watch any of them as they let people like Mr. Dorsey determine their thoughtless and non independent thinking process. By the way I constantly read comment sections of news and sports sites but have never once written my own response till this one, that’s how depressed by the fact that sports that I love has been ruined by these fools, keep up the good work you do and God Bless You for your unwavering honesty in the face of such scrutiny!

  7. this country better wake up fast or the Chinese, who do not tolerate anything will sucker these moron so called woke whites and money hunger blacks who are clueless of what communist will do to all of them.
