I have Sal from Ten Park here with me, Here we go.....
How long have you been playing football?
Wow its been a long time ,started playing when i was 14 now am 43
What team did you start out playing with?
I started with a team called Franchise.Played with Keith and won a Chip .
What leagues have you played in?
Just about every league in Queens. Just to name a few YMCA, Asphalt Green, Bricktown,128 st ,Juniper, Kissena , Skillman ,Mckrave , NTFB , Tillary ,Highland 126 LEAGUE , 151 League, Lindin and NFFL FLAG FOOTBALL we won every league at least once. I think we won Kissena 24x A division of course.
How long do you think you will keep playing?
As long as I am having fun and I am healthy
How many championships do you have?
Andy saids i have 40 mabe 50, to many to count lol
In your opinion who is or was a better QB Dodo or Jrod?
Jrod is the better QB, he has one of the best arms in triboro football today,Dodo didnt have the skill like Jrod . DODO was more of a roll out qb .Dodo also played defensive and was very smart,but Jrod is a beast.
You have played with a lot of good qbs can you rank them? (top 5)
1]Jrod ,2]Joe B Upback 3]DODO 4]LJ UPback and Jason from Red Heat I think i have a chip with all these QB'S
Your Ten Park team played in 128th league about 2 years ago, left and hasn't returned, why?
Its been more than 2 years we played for 4 years won 3 out of 4 , Guys were getting older and players werent able to commitment anymore .If your not having fun then you move on.
How would you rate the competition in Kissina compared to 128th?
The same , 128 st fell off I rember playing with all these great teams from every boro i think Angelo had like 50 teams ,Queens teams dominated Asphalt green.Upback had won 5 out of the 7 years they played there.
Why didn't Ten Park ever join a contact league?
There was no contact leagues back in the day, we played Flag Football played at RFK ,Giant Stadium,and also played in Miami , mabe one day we will join a contact league or mabe we wont.
A lot of talk about Ten Park/Carver on the blog, what makes them the same and what makes them different?
I can tell you what makes them the same is they win,and have been around for 20+ years
I have to ask you, if Ten Park played Carver one game right now (non contact rules), who wins and why?
Great question I hope i would say we would win, but after waching Carver play Underrated Carver looks real good.
Jrod has played on other teams, Hustlers,Gmen,Underated in City Island, why do you think he hasn't had the success with those other teams? Jrod has had success with Hustlers taking them to a final 4 at 128 and losing the following year to BTB defending champions in the playoffs,with the Gmen he had some arm issues so he decided to not play on Saturdays and Underated i think he played 2 games with them ,which one was a playoff game. I think you need to gel with a team ,players need to know how to run a play or route,alot players cant run a play or Route. Its like me asking you Chuck what happened when you played with the LongHorns
My Longhorn team was young n wasn't as talented as my Carver team, do you think JRod didn't have enough talent with those teams?
I Think if Jrod woiuld have played a couple of more years with any of those teams he would have won a chip . it takes time to gel with new teams he had the talent ,but just because you have the talent you dodnt always win.
Who is the best QB that you played Against?
Jayson from Red Heat., I have to say all the years i have been paying this game Red Heat was the best football team i have seen .They would be no match for teams today.
Do you think the teams that play now are stacked with talent so there are less teams?
No i feel the game is not as popular like it was when we were growing up.
The QB pool, to me, isn't as good as when I was coming up, what do you think?
I feel the game isnt as good as it was back in the day ,Players and QB .
How has these football leagues changed over the years?
I hate to say this but Touch Football is dying nobody plays it anymore i rember like 15 leagues in Queens I think there is like 3 good leagues left look at 128 ST ,we were playing there when there was like 50 teams today there is like 20 teams left . Angelo and Jimmy are gone . Todays teenagers are playing Madden as we were in the park playing football . Thanks to guys like Skip and yourself who are trying to keep this game around.
I would like to say Thank you to Sal for doing the interview and thanks for keeping it real. I appreciate that.
April 17, 2013
I'm here with the "Great24" let's do this......
How long have you been playing football?
I been playing football for 30 years.. I'm 42yrs Old
What team did you start out for in Tri boro football?
I started playing with the REAL SH back in 1996
How do you know Tone(SH Founder)?
I know Tone from my Block 141st & B-Way
When did you start playing with Carver?
I started playing with Carver Back in 97' and Coach Pamz was on the Real SH also. He saw how I played and asked me to play in the 112 league. We (SH) were only playing at RiverBank at the time.
How did it feel to Run The City?
WOW, IT FEELS GREAT MAN TO GO OUT THE WAY WE DID. I'M STILL ON CLOUD 9..HAHAHA Not for long gotta get ready for September. CM, Can continue to make HISTORY by just WINNING MORE CHIPS. I said it on the field, All CHUCK Needs is a little Defense and it's a % 99.999999999 that CM Would Win and Boy are WE GIVING HIM A WHOLE LOT OF DEFENSE............Can't Wait!!!!!
Why do you think Pamz is a good coach?
Man Pamz is just like me, he Brings high Energy to the game and I Love that because it gets me going and I get the Team going. This game is ALL about Energy and if you don't have that chances are you're going to lose alot of games. You can put this in the books, Pamz is the GREATEST Coach of all Times.. To win 5 Chips go Away for 2yrs come home and win 5 Chips again? C'mon whose done that? Pamz it's the Best Coach Hands Down!!! Love my coach....
We all know your a stat guy, how many interceptions do you have?
I have 162 into's and counting.... I started recording them back in 1996. Like we talking about Stat, let me give you my whole Stat. I know alot of people don't know my History...
1- SPANISH HARLEM
1- MAIN EVENT
1- YOUNG GUNZ
ALL-STAR GAME 96'(RiverBank) Two Picks in that game
CHAMPIONSHIP GAME 98' (112ST CM vs RAW) Two Picks against Reggie
Your phrase is "offense wins games, defense wins championships", why do you think that?
I made up the Phrase "offense wins games, DEFENSE Wins Championships back in 1996 when SH Won it's first Chip undefeated. Before I played with SH, I played with a Team from around my way called "Primetime." We would beat everybody in the regular season and always lost in the playoffs. Once, I started playing with SH and we won the Chip. I realized you have to have Defense. So, it just came to me, Offense wins games and Defense wins Chips and ever since then I been using it. Now ESPN uses it haha... But It's the Truth!!!
What made you decide to stop playing for SH n play for Carver only?
Well, since 97' I was playing with both Carver and SH on different leagues...but never in the same league and I'm not sure but back in 2007-08 season I stopped playing with CM because I was asked by the guy running SH at the time to stop. Me, being a loyal guy to the team I said ok. I ALWAYS had mad respect for Chuck & Pamz. I won 8 Championships with CM before stopping. Then in 2010 SH GM wanted to go another route and let me go. I contacted Chuck to get a Spot on Carver again and it felt like I never left. We Won 5 more Chips since then and I'm 3-0 against SH in the Chip...so to answer your question 2010 lol.
FYI, in the end the lack of loyalty from SH's GM led me to continue winning Championships with the Team that was Always loyal To Me...#CM4L
What's the difference between the great SH defenses and Carver defense during this run of the city?
Wow, look I played on alot of GREAT Defense teams in my career with SH hands down BUT I would have to say the Difference is I'm playing with A lot of Young Guys (Naz, Jay,Danny, Mijo and Ike) that are making it look easy out there. Now, when you have a Young Great Defense with a lil of old School in myself and Joe it can be Scary for offenses out there. This run just showed people how deadly this Defense can be. We were on a MISSION....Sky's the limit with this Defense. FYI, I'm blessed to say I played on ALOT of GREAT Defense teams on both SH and CM, not alot of people could say that!!!! Shout out to my Defense, we're the Best!!
Your baby girl Ella passed in December, did you ever think of just retiring? Why or why not?
You want to know something, there's two things that I love most and that's my Family(wife, son, daughter, mom) and Football. My baby girl was a fan of her Daddy, she loved watching football with me. Every, Sunday when I would get home from playing she'd be waiting for me with the remote, she knew it was football time. I know my baby would want me to keep playing. I'm being totally honest here. This has been the toughest thing I been through but the support my wife and I are getting from family and friends helps a whole lot. The one thing that touched us the most was when My family CM put her name and Angle wings on our Jerseys and dedicated the season to her in all Three leagues and We Won Them ALL! That showed me that I wasn't alone in this and I'm Thankful for that.
How has Carver n this football season helped you deal with your loss?
It helped me a WHOLE lot to have been around my teammates. She touched alot of people in her short life and it showed. CM Became a FAMILY, real talk. It hurts me so much that she's no longer with us but I know she's here with us all the time, she lives in all of our Hearts 4EVER... I think of her all the time, even when I was on the field playing. Every play I made was for her and will continue to be for her. Ella Daddy loves you too Much... I LOVE MY TEAM(Drake Voice) lol.. My family and I wanted to Thank them from the bottom of our hearts for keeping my Baby Girl "Ella" Alive.....1,2,3 DEFENSE 4,5,6 ELLAAAAAAAAA
You played all over the city, which league do you feel is the hardest to play defense in?
I would have to say Co-op because it's 4 and out , but 112st was tough. Also it was a Real football field, 100 yards. FYI, I'm one of a few Players who Won a MVP Award in a Chip Game in 112st, of course with CM.
What changes do you think Tone will make for SH going into September?
Knowing Tone the way I know him there's DEFINITELY going to be Changes. Tone and myself are from the Same Block 141st and we were ALWAYS WINNERS....As You all know since Day One when Tone Assembled SH, it was Made of All ALL-STARS from the First SH Team-Tank RIP, Sam, Bo, Pamz, Roc House,Kev, Chase,June, Eddie,Eccey, Tito, Papo to guys Like Wes, Rome, Joe, Rocky, Ralph,Young Star Bert, Roc,Nel, Gotti, Mark,Chuck, Reggie,Lou,Ed. I was Blessed to have Played with so many GREAT Players. We Made GREAT HISTORY TOGETHER and I know Tone would want to have that same Format. The SH Team now is Not even close to how he left it. I wish him the best, this up coming season. BUT IT'S THE CARVER MOBB WAY RIGHT NOW!!! 32 CHIPS(Most of All Times) and Counting.... SH Has 10 Chips in Co-op and CM has 6 Chips..4 more and we'll tie and 5 to Break it. So come Watch HISTORY in the Making!!!!
I (Chuck) played on SH for a season and I must say we won in CI easily, How many chips do you think we would of won if I stayed?
WOW we would have NEVER LOST...The number of chips would have been in the high double digits..it wouldn't had been fair....
Like I asked Wes #88, you played with many great Qbs, rank your top 3?
This is easy I'm give you Top 5.. 1) CHUCK 2) KEV 3)REGGIE 4) EDDIE(White Boy) 5) LOU
Name your top 5 defenders of All-time?
Wow top 5? I'm going to give you seven because that's how many players play at one time.
1) "KEV10" 2) "PITO42" 3) "PUMPKIN21" 4) "GABY36" 5) "TG24" 6) "PAPO26" 7) "ROME2"
Now let me say that you CAN'T WIN A CHAMPIONSHIP WITHOUT DEFENSE and Playing along side these Guys we had a Winning Streak of Over 30 games. Also out of my 29 Chips 9 of them were UNDEFEATED Season(6 with SH and 3 with CM)
I gotta shout out other GREAT Defenders "ROCKY47" RALPH33" "DANNY27" "JOE1" "ED23" "GEORGE16"
Top 5 defenders right now?
Now with this one people are going to say I'm bias but I have to keep it real here, The BEST DEFENDERS right now are My Carver MoBB Defenses. "NAS7" Can Become one of the Greatest of All Time when it's all Done. "JAY7" This guy just keep getting better every year, it's Scary! Nas & Jay are on Pace to become the GREATEST DUAL playing Safety.. "IKE7" Playing Great D and has the potential to Become GREAT.. "DANNY27" Playing over 15yrs and still Playing on a High Level..."JOE1" is one of the GREATEST Defenders of all Time..(Enough Said)... "MIJO22" By the time he stops playing he will be considered the GREATEST Giver of All Times and Myself "TG24" The GREATEST Corner of All- Times Hands Down. I Pick them because we're Playing on a high level..We Avg 42pt(Co-op) 45pt(BQFL) 48pt(AFL) on Offense and 21pt(co-op) 21pt(BQFL) 18pt(AFL) on Defense.. You do the Math... We the Top DEFENDERS right now... There's a handful of players that are playing Good too and that's "Swiss" "Akon" "Pito"" Kendu" "Red" "Angel" and "Mimi"
How much longer do you think you will keep playing?
I'm taking it one year at a time right now. I Still Enjoy playing this game and when I stop there's no going back. I don't know how Johnny V does it haha..and I'm still Hungry for more Chips and when you're Playing with The GREATEST QB of all Time makes it that much Better to Keep Playing...
Shout out to None for Giving me my Props...Real Recognize Real!!!
Thank You Chuck.....Peace&Love.. See Ya in September...
There you have it people, raw n un-cut realness. You can hate em or you can love him but you gotta respect him. My brother, see you soon!
Danny #27's Interview
April 16, 2013
I Have Danny #27 who plays defense for Carver here........
How long have you been playing football?
I've been playing football since I was about 16yrs old
How did you get down with Carver?
I started playing tackle football and some of the guys on carver saw me play and told coach pamz and coach Loe to give me a shot so I gotta say thanks to cmobb greats hall aka pumpkin and Lou 47
How did Carver Run the City again this season?
We were all focused on one goal which was win everything and we also had a little angel on our side sip our little Ella and we trusted each other to do what was needed to run the city
Who is the one defender Carver can't afford to lose besides urself?
We couldn't lose anyone of us bc we gel so well but if I had to pick I would have to say naz bc he knows the game and he's always talking on the field
If you were to leave Carver(we know ur not lol) what team do you see yourself fitting into?
I would have to say underrated bc they have that same family type of team
We at Carver know you are important to our team, why do you think you are?
Because I feel I'm a student of the game I like to watch film shout out to skip capture lol and I pay attention to players tendencies
What offenses do you feel Carver's defense has to be ready for?
Underrated is an offense I always see us having to step our game up and also lately deep cover because of Keith he can get the ball anywhere on the field
What is the difference between playing for Pamz or playing for Will?
They both have different style of coaching will is more laid back when it comes to player interaction and pamz is more in ur face get u hype u wanna run thru a brick wall bc he thinks u can do it lol but they r both great coaches
What did playing with Wes do to help your career?
Playing against and along side Wes has been the best experience as a defender he helped me learn how to defend we routes and on offence he helped me find opening in defenses and how to run a crisper route
You are not a high profile player for Carver like the Booboo's,Joe,Naz how do you feel about that?
That has always been fine by me I don't need the spotlight to do what I do I like being a silent killer lol
Your an underrated player so name a few underrated players in TFL?
Mestre underrated like me he does the little things to win snizz from bomb squad that guy gets open all the time and there r others but there not coming to mind right now lol
Who are the toughest Wrs to guard for you?
Swiss is one of the toughest bc he can stop and speed up in any direction! Pito is another and before they became my brothers angel 77 and the great Wes 88
Who is the toughest Qb to get an interception off of?
U in practice lmao no but I would have to say the toughest qb would b Kev Clark from sugar hill/ underrated besides u he always makes the right decision
Which league is the toughest for you?
I would say city island bc the four and out rule and the wide field and then I would say 128 bc of the speed of the game and it's non-contact so u really can't get away with grabbing lol
Give me your top 5 Wrs of TFL?
Wow that's kinda tuff I've played with and against a lot of great wr so here's my list 1.wes 2.swiss 3.booboo 4.naz 5.pito honorable mentions angel77,Matt (bk),Paul wall (cm/dynasty) I know my list looks kinda bias bc there's a lot of my cmobb brothas but all those wr put in that work everywhere they go! Lol
You play defense but played a lot of offense during your career, which would you rather play?
Well when I started my football career I was on defense I love catching touchdowns but if u ask me nothing is better than making a stop on defense to end a game so defense!
Coach Pam'z Interview
April 13, 2013
I'm here with Coach Pamz of Carver Mobb, let's get to it....
When did you start playing football?
We started playing on the block way B4 we joined leagues so I'm gonna say like 25 years. Yeah I'm a O.G
What teams did you play for?
Carver Mobb first n foremost but I was 1 of the originals on Sugar Hill in 96.
How did Carver Mobb become a team?
We always was a team started with baseball then basketball, then we just decided to play in 112 on concrete n we just stuck with our block name.
How did you become the coach?
Well I was always a player coach, but since a teen my voice was respected so it just happen. Now I feel I'm the best Coach Motivator in the City. Real shit.
How many Championships does Carver have?
Real talk I stop counting after 30, it doesn't even matter no more cause no team is coming close to those numbers.
Carver Ran the city before you got locked up, had some success (with Will) but then Ran it again when you came home, why do the players respond to you?
Like I said it's my energy they way I motivate players they just respond to me, I coach with a passion, I'm on those sidelines with so much energy u would think I'm playing n the players love seeing that shit. But Coach Will did a hell of a job, I left him in charge for a reason n he held my MOBB together for the 2- in half years I was gone. Shout out to coach Will 4 holding a nigga down for real.
Speaking of that how does it feel to win all three major leagues?
Listen that feeling is like no other, n to do it twice. Looking back no other team did that n to do it b4 I went in then 2 do it when I come out, come on Shout out to my motherfucking Mobb.
What did it take to accomplish that?
Losing that Championship to Underated, N the Nones n Barista saying my motherfucking brother Chuck was washed up. Thank you Nones n Barista keep doing your job. Also those good players to gel n play as 1, once that happened we became unstoppable. By the way we averaged 42pts a game during that run. Just some coach shit.
We know our brother/teammate Moya's daughter passed in December(RIP Ella), how did that effect the team?
When that happened it brought us together as a family n put all our bullshit, personal shit to the side n play for her. That shit hit home n we all felt it. That's our Angel SIP ELLA! That would be on our Jerseys 4-ever.
Does it ever get tiring?(Winning)
Hell no, cause this shit ain't 4-ever so we gonna keep doing what we do 2 we can't no more.
Some people say playing TFL style of football is recreation, what do you think?
Really that's to people who don't love the game the way we do. It's rec. but it's also Business nuff said!!!!
Carver's defense played well in that run but a lot of teams/players shit on Carver's defense, why do you think they do?
Well I guess numbers don't lie, every game at least 2-3 stops, in this TFL shit that's great D especially when u putting 50 plus pts. a game. Shout out 2 Joe blow, Jay, Ike, Naz, Moya, Danny, Mijo n Red.
How do you know Tone (creator of SH)?
Me n tone go back 30 years when we was Lil niggas playing basketball for Coach Tone ( Mustangs). That's my motherfucking nigga B4 this football shit. Welcome Home my G!
How do you think Tone being home will effect SH?
U gonna c a lot of changes, more players. They lacking depth n he knows how to assemble a team. N on some real shit loyalty is everything, u can't B a dickhead cause niggas respect honesty n real ness. That's just how I c it.
So when did the SH n Carver rivalry start?
In 97 when they came 2 112st league n it been war ever since, but really we all grew up with each other so it's deeper than that. Way 2 much history 2 get into 2.
Which league would you say was the hardest to win?
Honestly City Island hands down that's the Mecca of this football shit, no diss to other leagues but it is what it is. Look at the road we had 2 take 2 win the chip. 1st round the U, next round G-MEN then Sugar Hill. Come on u name 3 other teams in other leagues we had to face week after week to win the chip. I'm just stating facts.
Picking up Mimi was key, why did you feel he could help Carver?
That motherfucker brings so much fucking energy n toughness, he plays the game 150%. When we lost the chip I went right over to him in the back of the end zone n he said that wasn't Carver Mobb football then I said well u need to get down n bring that shit n the rest is history. Now the worst thing is that motherfucker still hungry.
Who do you feel make up the top5 players in TFL?
I really don't want 2 answer cause I'm gonna B bias, but everybody needs to wake up now cause my man Naz #7 is a straight killer on that field. Now give him the props he deserves.
What team do you feel you can coach and have a good chance of winning a chip?
I just had a talk with Alvaro, but put me on that sideline with a couple of pick ups they can get over that hump (Bomb Squad). But honestly u can check the record I took a couple of other teams to the promise land also.
Do you get asked a lot of coaching questions?
Hell yeah, not on no cocky shit but I gave a lot of dudes words of wisdom 4 there team. Since last year my phone has been ringing off the hook, dudes wanna know what I do to get the respect from everybody on the team. Bottom line I told em shit don't happen overnight, you gotta be consistent with it.
What teams or team do you feel are legitimate competition against Carver year in and year out for those chips?
Not to sound fucked up The U is the only comp in CI, just look at the last years who won the chip its either Us or them. But everywhere else nobody fuckin with my MOBB they just donations. We Run this City.
Do you miss playing?
Hell yeah, especially now that I'm in shape but my greatest asset to my MOBB is on the sidelines. That's just what I do, if I played I couldn't b in the game mentally. So 2 answer that I'm good as long as we winning n running the city. Coach Pamz I'm off this, shout out 2 my brother/QB the greatest ever Chuck aka Childs play.
I wanna thank you my brother for taking time out to do this interview n remind everybody that "We Run The City"!
Wes #88's Interview
April 13, 2013
Long overdue Interview with the great one, let's get to it.....
How long have you been playing football?I been playing since I am 10..What team did you start with?Seven precinct Road Runners Tackle team when I was 16.
About how many Championships you have?
I have way too many to count.
How did you end up playing for Carver?
There is a handful of guys I really wanted to Team up with and Chuck is one of them.
How much do you think you have left in the tank?
I go year by year and leave it at that.
Why do you think you was able to last playing this long?
I am truly a blessed man..I take care of myself the best I can and appreciate every day of my life.. No secrets just healthy living.
How did it feel to "Run the City" with Carver?
It is a great feeling to be a part of this great Team. Pamzie is a great Coach and motivator.
Why didn't you show for the SH playoff games vs F.O.E?
I know people want it to be a juicy reason but the fact of the matter was I tore my god damn contact, with no extras, and couldn't see shit! So yea I am human..I wear contacts and without them I am blind. Lol!
Why are you no longer a SH player?
The SH in which I started with was history and I needed to move on.
How did you end up playing for Carver this season in every league?
Carver has always made me feel like a part of there team without any politics. I wanted to just play ball.
When you saw Tone (SH Founder) what did he say to you?
It was a friendly conversation between 2 Men who havent talked for a while.
Now that Tone is home do you think you will go back to SH?
I have all the respect for Tone and wish SH the best of luck, but I am happy where I am.
What is the difference between the great SH teams you played on and the great Carver teams you played on?
The great SH teams which consisted of Kevin, June, Papo, Ralph, Moya, Joe Blow, Chase, Rocky, Gotti, Romi, etc...and I point this out because they are all gone, was an amazing Team when at its best was unified.. The great Carver teams have always had an amazing unity amongst its players which makes for a Great successful team. I will give a slight edge to Carver because of Chuck's knowledge of the game and consistency as Carver's QB..
How did it feel to play against SH after being a part of that team for so long?
I never really played against the real SH, Playing against the present SH team was a bit awkward but I give every game, NO MATTER WHAT TEAM I AM ON OR WHO I AM PLAYING AGAINST....MY BEST..
How did it feel to "Run the City" with Carver?
It is a great feeling to be a part of this great Team. Pamzie is a great Coach and motivator.
What defender or defenders do you feel guard you the best?
Nobody.. (Lol) I would have to say Swiss, Akon,Pito, Joe Blow and Rell.
You have played with a lot of Championship Qbs, who is your top 3?
1. Chuck 2. Al from LES Express 3. Kevin and I have to add Reggie and Lou. Oh wait and JR.
If you only had one game to win and you can pick any Qb to throw for you, who would it be?
What league do you feel is the toughest?
Coop but Brooklyn is creeping up though.
What do you think makes BQFL different from the other leagues?
BQFL is different because there is more of a variety of talent to compete with and the level of intensity is much higher...Alot more trash talk LOL
Since your arguably the best receiver that ever played, do you think a Qb makes a receiver better or the receiver makes the Qb look better?
I think that it is necessary for a Qb and a Receiver to understand and trust one anothers game. GAME KNOWS GAME. A Qb and Receiver need each other as well as the Team around them..
There you have it folks, I want to thank the great Wes for doing the interview (n for giving me props lol) n like Dj Khaled said "We The Best"
November 15, 2012
When did you start playing football?ive been ballin since i was 15 im 30 now . i started with dc ima die with dc. ive played on a few other teams but who cares dc is my home 4life.
How did DC come about?dc been around for almost 25 yrs. it started in woodside pjs in queens. cozy corner baby ! lol . its a family thas had many generations of great teams . my ogs have made sure that regardless of who playin our core group of guys will always give us a winnin team
Now that you play in All the top leagues, which is the most comp?ci by far ! no disrespect darrin but ci has the best comp the best style of play n most importantly pay out the most lol. just knowin every game is tough is enuff to rank it the best. but bqfl is 2nd. but lets not shit on kissena either !! lolol jk ci also has the food truck the merengue n bachata bumpin at 9am. lol
What was your biggest adjustment for CI?honestly i think dc success has come from goin into leagues n not changin anythin we kno what we gotta do once its money time but to answer your ? we havent changed anything. our defense gotta step up come playoff time bcuz d wins chips . as far as offense as long as my fearless leader do wat he do then well b aight !
Do you wish you started playing in these leagues sooner?in order to travel like we wanted to travel you gotta add pieces to the puzzle n that takes time. so i think we jumped into the best leagues when we knew we had a deep squad
How do you think your team is doing so far this season as a whole?when u playin so many games a day n a weekend its hard to not look past certain opponents. n when u play against those so called bad teams u gotta b ready bcuz a win against carver, unda or dc can make u look rly bad n also u made the other tesms season ! let down games r the hardest to avoid
How did you end with Jwil in CI n especially Bk?jwill been playin with dc just not in the spotlight leagues . he n will r fam n jwill n pep told ceo will that they were goin wherever he went n we all kno will is a DC veteran .
I was speaking to Keith but I'll ask u, how does it feel to have 4-5 games a wkend?it sux it rly does ! gas tolls wear n tear on the body late weekends all that shit adds up! we def wont b doin that again !! but when u tryin to be the best team in the city there are certain sacrifices you gotta make !!
Where did DC get that sound y'all make? (Yerrrr) lol
yerrrrrr !! its a hood thing !! niggas love to hate the war cry !! woodside projects reppin !
Do you or did you think u had the advantage playing some of the teams that didn't know DC?with certain teams yes its def an advantage bcuz they dont kno our offense but thx to skip teams r gameplannin against us from wat they see on tape ! (love ya skip)
Is it easy to coach n play?hell no! i have no ego n i kno im no star therefo my team trusts me to call plays that best fit wat they do . but dont get it twisted i think im the best at what i do ! sry pamz lolol
Why do you think people hate on DC?i think its the confidence that we carry. we kno we good n we kno if we play to our abilities can no team fuck wit that Purple Reign. but we also have outspoken dudes that like to let other teams kno that they just as elite as the so called great players !!
So do you feel you have the right pieces to win in every league?keepin it 100 i feel we got 3 of the 5 best players in the city . swizz n childs play of course on that list ! just my opinion . keith ralph n kaz gives dc a great chance in any league . add jwill n the rest of the cast all we gotta do is d up n catch the ball.
If there was one player you can have on your team who would it be? (not saying you need him)i kno niggas gon say im dr or wtva but my nigga ralph is all dc need ! the man is a problem . but that boy swizz is by far thd biggest game changer out there . ive seen the nigga takeova games dolo. shits crazy ! big ups homie ! he holds his squad down n i respect that ! but on the low we scoutin the players noone knows about .. that kid gil ya got is good might have to call ceowill to make a move! lol
Do u wish Kaz never said who is Swiss in the interview b4 the chip in LES? LOLno i encourage my teammates to b themselves as we all kno kaz is a free spirit so i would never not want him to b himself. !! but we all found out ! lol smh
What defenses are the hardest to gameplan for?unda they so fast n play man cant make no mistakes against them . carver of course, gmen, cobras r the hardest hittin team in the city, suga in bk with kendu .great teammate thas my brother we won afl together .hes a beast
Since you played against all the top teams, what player or players surprised you with how good or how bad they are?that tall kid from flatliners is a problem ! rell ez is a beast ! cello u already kno !! lolol i dont wanna shit on noone all ima say is that its not about wat u did 10 yrs ago or 5 yrs ago its about wat u doin now ! live off ur game now. ! shouts out to the niggas that do hooks all game !! the dirty work !! we set the table for the stars ! shouts to my special team niggas when u kno ur role n all u wanna do is help the team win !! to the gfs who go to the games !! lol n lastly shouts to my nigga pops 50 from dc !! the voice of dc !! n my nigga G he bill belichick of dc 31 !! yerrrr
i just wanna take this time to shout out ups for gettin the cave poppin a big yerrr to skip for puttin us on his videos n to all of the triboro squads reppin this tfl shit.

November 13, 2012
When did u start playing football?around 7 or 8 but ive been playing in these types of leagues since 2001
How did u join Gmen?back when the blog was live mostly dudes from kissena use too write on it. i wrote that i wanted too see what the A division was about because prior too that i the teams i played with played in the lower divisions and papui answered me saying he would like me too rock with gmen
How many chips do u have n what leagues?i have 3 chips in kissena that i won with family and friends im proud of all three nobody could take that from us the feeling is greater when your win with dudes from your block too me 2 in linden with the gmen and 1 in the afl spring also with the gmen i may have miss one but who cares im not counting but 6ish ill say i have lol
Which league do u feel has the most comp n why?
honestly speaking i think afl (128th) has the most comp because its right in the middle of the city and it not hard for most too travel there non-contact contact its all the same football is football if you ask me
Most people would say city island has the most comp, why u don't think so?to me ci is second not far behind i say that because there are weak teams that go there year after year that are kinda look stuck there i like ci there is a lot of comp there i just think that afl has a lil more comp
Who do u see as the team to beat in co-op?well if you looking for me too toot your horn then ok Carver is the team too beat lmfao... but not by a long shot, any team can lose on any given day. in any league they go in they (Carver) have a great system that hardly fails them even tho sugar is kinda stacked n bk and also there is a great qb in keith that CAN make it happen as well
How do u think Landy is doing so far with ur team? is doing good he put up 30 every game since hes been here now our defense has too hold the other team too under 30 and we'll be alright lol
If you wasn't playing with Gmen what team do u see urself fitting into n whyhonestly if its not gmen its r.e.p on ya head!! (the replacemnts) and i think i could fit on any team
What do you think ur Replacements team needs to be a very good team?right now our team is very good we have a qb in my bro J.Hood that can make it happen but in my opinion we lack the man power and a lot of us talk and there is really no need too i guess you could say we could go about the game in a more classy way if we focused on the game on all ends we would be a lot better but we want too worry about the other team calling us bums and shit like that...
Since u usually guard the best player on the other team name ur 3 best players? 1. K.K. he can play both side of ball 2. he is run away slave fast 3. he is smart he can tell who fucked up and how they fuck up and what you should do next time. Kindu 1. plays both ways 2. very smart player he puts people in good position too make plays 3. he is fast you cant teach speed you can only out smart it... and most recently swiss made me a believer 1. a lil touchy on defense but he can play both ways pause 4 the homos. 2.he runs great routes you cant really tell what hes gonna do 3. the way his team gets behind him its like they feed off of him im not afraid too say that i admire the leadership role he holds for his team
What happened to KK? He doesn't show anymore?
well KK has been busy with family and shit he gotta handle, you know how them brooklyn niggas are lol na we really missing him but we not crying we believe we could win with whoever shows up like when Jay went out last year somebody had too step up and fill that spot no difference here
Why do u think people think Kindu is a bad defender??? is there another Kindu around in the TFL that i dont know about?? they say that because he gets beat by the pump n go... but i have a question for all those people that think hes a bad defender how many people have you seen recover n make the tag after getting hit with the pump n go... i got hit by a pump n go a couple weeks ago by ralph lol he was gone!!! i was eating turf as i was chasing him too the endzone lmao
Why don't u think ur peers add u in the conversations of the top 5 in the city?top five in the city. well people always included me by excluding me if that makes any sense lol thats a big statement i mean 5 outta how how many? being excluded from that convo is good enough for me lol. people talk a lot about chips and what chips have you won and i dont have chips in "relevant" leagues whatever that means... its hard too win a chip in any league it takes a lot and if you say its not then win them all... but too answer your question people dont put me in there top 5 because i havent won a chip in quote best leagues
What team do u love to beat? Why?all the great teams too be the best you gotta beat the best and im sure it was the same for you coming up. i never been the type too bow down too a man because he is better
are usually in the final four each season, what do u think yall need to get over the hump n win a chip?(leagues u haven't won in)execution execution and execution if we execute we win thats how i feel its not about being better its about being better on that particular day! any given sunday anybody could get beat thats why the game is played.
Do u speak to Danny?(ur former qb)
no i dont hate that man but no
How do u feel him getting cut went down?D getting cut was a team decision believe it or not... well the final decision came down too Jon and Papui but they did asked us all individually
Since we know Danny n Kindu approached u to play with Sugar Hill, was there money thrown ur way to play?
something was said along the lines of put an offer on the table, but i never heard a number too keep it a 100. females see money get happy and straight dancing a real man will not let a dollar amount blur their vision thats how i feel about that really how much money you offering? im not getting rich off this shit be serious
With or without getting paid would u ever play for SH?no loyalty is royalty
Why do u think Gmen are hated on so much? is hated because we are a threat if we werent nobody would care what we do and where we go those are all distractions but we are focused we know what it takes and we are gonna work hard too get where we want too go
Do u ever watch Skip's videos n say to urself, what was I doing on that play? lol
all the time lol i love skip's videos i often watch them when im at work im still waiting on that packers game from last winter playoffs but you know shit happens... i was a lil tight because for a while all i saw was jon getting hurt and the scuffle we had with sh in the final four instead of gmen games had me thinking he was the barista lmao its all good shout out too that man Skip because if it wasnt for him we wouldnt see shit so im thankful for that
Who is the best qb u ever faced and the best u ever played for?
best qb i ever played against is that dude from carver mobb wtf i hate that fucking guy i think his name is Chuck lol and the best qb i ever played with is Tio Lou we called him Tio Lou because he showed everybody love we put up 70+ one game last fall ask anybody on the gmen i think most will say Tio Lou without question
Since u guard the other teams best player who will you guard on sunday vs Carver Mobb? lolwe all will have our hands full this weekend but we are always up for a challenge and i think your gonna have too wait until sunday too see that lol tell skip too bring his camera lmao
i just wanna say thanks for giving me a chance for speaking my mind chuck see you out there. HGH niggas is getting strong off that hate!!!
Where did you get the name Fish?
MY LAST NAME IS FISCHER.........
How long have you been a qb?
I STARTED TO QB WHEN I WAS 17
What team did you start throwing for?
A TEAM CALLED THE CHARGERS IN THE SATURDAY BFL...YOUNGER KIDS...WE WERE THE BEST TEAM EVER ON SATURDAYS....
How many chips do you have and what leagues?
CHARGERS 1[BFL] BROWNS 1[BFL] ODESSEY 1 [BFL]......RENEGADES  IN FRESH MEADOWS....UNHOLY  4 IN FRESH MEADOWS AND 1 IN HIGHLAND......PHANTOMS ETS.....FLAMES ETS.....HURRICANES 1[BQFL]....AND BROWNS BQFL.......THATS 17....AND IVE WON A CHIP ON EVERYTEAM IVE EVER PLAYED FOR....17-7 IN CHIPS.....11-6 AS A QB 6-1 AS A WR/DB
You recently retired, why?
I LOST THE LOVE FOR THE GAME .....THE LAST YEAR BECAME WORK INSTEAD OF HAVING FUN....I WAS READY TO RETIRE AFTER THE GATER GAME IN LINDSEY BUT COULDNT LEAVE AFTER A GAME LIKE THAT..PLUS ALL THE GUYS IVE BEEN PLAYING WITH AND GREW UP WITH ALL DONT PLAY ANYMORE....AND AS LONG AS MATT HAD A GOOD TEAM TO PLAY WITH I COULD WALK AWAY AND BE HAPPY WITH MY SELF
How do you think you did as a ref?
I MADE SOME MISTAKES...BIG AND SMALL.FROM WHAT PEOPLE TELL ME IVE BEEN GOOD SO FAR....IM FAIR WITH ALL TEAMS....I GUESS WHY THAT CLOWN JUNE SAID IM TERRIBLE CAUSE I GUESS HE FIGURED ID GIVE BK ALL THE CALLS.....
Do you feel differently about refs now that are one?
NO....I ONLY GAVE KIMMY A HARD TIME....I KNEW IT WAS A HARD JOB DEALING WITH ALL U ASSHOLES EVERY WEEK...
What made you decide to start throwing again?
DARREN NEEDED A A DIVISON TEAM.....MATT MADE A TEAM AND TOLD ME STOP BEING A BITCH AND I SAID OK...
Do you think taking a year off a qb can lose that much of his skills to be worse?
ONLY TIME WILL TELL....IVE PUT ON WEIGHT....HAVENT THROWN MUCH...BUT ITS OK....WE WILL SEE...QB IS LIKE RIDING A BIKE,......U NEVER FORGET HOW TO DO IT....
Your brother Matt throws for a B team, do you think he can become a good qb?
HE IS ALEADY A GOOD QB....HE IS BETTER THAN 90% OF QB IN THE LEAGUE AND CAN ONLY GET BETTER.....
If you could pick a team for Matt to play on besides Evo what team would you pick for him?
IVE TOLD HIM ALREADY HE SHOULD PLAY WITH CARVER..NEITHER ONE OF US OWE ANY TEAM FROM BK ANYTHING..
You have gotten to see alot of games as a ref, what qbs do you feel are the good ones out there?
THERE AINT MANY.....YOU,PHREE, ARI FROM UNDERATED AND REGGIE ARE THE BEST IVE SEEN THIS YEAR....
Which qbs' do you feel...let's say needs some work?
JUNE(Evo)...HE HAS THE CAPABILITY TO BE A TOP QB...JUST HAS A FEW MENTAL BLOCKS....AND GUP, SAME THING AS JUNE....
If you could mix n match qbs to certain teams to help them have a better chance of winning who would you switch? n Why?
IF DAVE(Spartans) HAD PLAYERS WHO PLAYED A WHOLE GAME AND DIDNT QUIT SO MUCH HE WOULD BE ABLE TO WIN.....I THINK IF UNDERATED OR COBRAS OR RAYS HAD A TOP QB THEY WOULD DO ALOT OF WINNING...
Who do you think fits the Cobras style of play as a qb to help them win? HONESTLY I DO...THEY PLAY LIKE THEY JUST GOT OUT OF THE NUT HOUSE.... I LIKE THAT STYLE OF PLAY...
What player do you think doesn't get the credit he deserves?
REGGIE FROM GO GETTAS .....ALL I HEAR IS HE WONT WIN AND HE HASNT YET ....BUT THE PLAYOFF GAME IVE SEEN HE HAS DONE HIS JOB IN ALL OF THEM......
I gotta put you on the spot, Name your top 5 qbs that you have seen that are still playing?
Tmvp has said that now your a 2g qb in a 5g world, what do you think?
I THOUGHT ABOUT THIS QUESTION FOR TWO DAYS AND HAD TWO WAYS TO ANSWER IT....OLD FISH WHO IS A ASSHOLE OR THE CALMER NICER FISH.... I HAVE A GREAT DEAL OF RESPECT FOR PHREE AND THE TITANS IVE PLAYED WITH ALMOST ALL OF THEM .....BUT IF JUNE WANTS TO TAKE A SHOT AT ME THEN FUCK HIM.....I USUALLY WOULDNT TALK SHIT TO A ROLE PLAYER......IN CASE HE FORGOT WE WERE TEAMATES FOR 1 SEASON...WE LOST, HE POINTED FINGER AT ME ...I CUT HIM AND WE WON CHIP NEXT SEASON...AND IN CASE HE FORGOT THE ONLY REASON THE TITANS HAVE A TEAM IS CAUSE I RETIRED....IF I WAS PLAYING HE WOULD HAVE NO TEAM TO PLAY WITH....SINCE IVE RETIRED ATLEST 10 TEAMS HAVE ASKED ME TO PLAY WITH THEM....HOW MANY U THINK WOULD ASK HIM ....THE SAME AMOUNT OF TEAMS HE PLAYED WITH WITHOUT THE TITANS.......ZERO!!!!AND HE SAYS HE WAS QB....IN CASE HE FORGOT I PUT HIM OUT OF BUSSINESS IN HIGHLAND....MIKE KNEW HE WOULD NEVER WIN WITH JUNE SO GOT FRANKIE TO QB...HE IS A SIDE SHOW...PEOPLE COME TO THE PARK TO WATCH ME PLAY....PEOPLE COME TO THE PARK TO LAUGH AT HIM.....BUT HE DID HIS THING IN THE PLAYOFFS THIS WINTER AND NOONE CAN EVER TAKE THAT AWAY FROM HIM...
Its easy to say what players are good but what players do you think are overrated?
JESUS U TRYING TO GET ME IN TROUBLE..HAPPY FEET BY FAR AND AWAY, IS THE MOST OVER RATED PLAYER IVE EVER SEEN....WHO ELSE....RED...GJONES......SPEEDY...RELLY..
I heard you have shown up to chip games drunk, did you care if you won or loss?
THERE ARE RUMORS THAT I WAS DRUNK IN THE GAME VS THE GATERS....THATS NOT TRUE ....THEY PLAYED A BETTER GAME THEN US AND BEAT US ON THE FIELD...END OF STORY...
If a team from BK asked you to throw in City Island and you thought you had a good shot to win, would you?
NO........BK TEAMS DONT TRAVEL WELL....I WOULD BE BETTER OF JUST PLAYING WITH A TEAM THAT PLAYS UP THERE THAT NEEDS A QB...
What do you think is the difference between the bk teams and the uptown teams as far as approaching games and executing?
HONESTLY IVE NEVER SEEN A TRUE UPTOWN TEAM..MOST OF THEM COME IN AS MIXED UP TEAMS....
Well Carver is not mixed up so you can use us to judge against the other BK teams?
I AINT THE TYPE TO JUDGE BK VS UPTOWN AND ALL THAT.... THAT TALK HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR YEARS AND IS DUMB....EVEN THOUGH I HAVENT WON A CHIP VS UPTOWN TEAMS I LIKED IT WHEN U ALL U TEAMS CAME TO BK...ITS BORING BEATING THE SAME TEAMS EVERY WEEK...
If there was an Uptown All-star team vs a BK All-star team who would win n why?
ALL IM GOING TO SAY IS THAT OUR FLAMES TEAMS WOULDNT HAVE LOST TO ANY TEAM FROM ANY WHERE,,,,,,BUT RIGHT NOW....I THINK WITH THE WAY PHREE HAS PLAYED THIS YEAR ID SAY BK WOULD WIN HANDS DOWN....
Why do you think your Flame team wouldn't lose?
BECAUSE WE HAD THE BEST TEAM EVER PUT TOGETHER...EVEN THE BROWNS TEAM WE WON IT WITH LAST YEAR WOULDNT LOSE MUCH EITHER...NOT THE LES TEAM THE BQFL TEAM....THE BROWNS BQFL TEAM WAS PRETTY MUCH THE SAME TEAM
WOW! I don't agree but there you have it people. Thanks again Fish for the interview n of course keeping it 100!
Kaz Interview a.k.a. The Avatar
March 22, 2012
Thanks again for the interview, let's get to it.
WHEN DID U START PLAYING FOOTBALL?I’ve been playing football since the age of 6.
WHAT LEAGUES HAVE U PLAYED IN?I played in so many leagues over the years it ain’t even funny mostly flag leagues in Brooklyn, I’m a BK dude born and raised, but I played in Marine Park, Canarsie, Strike Force, Flushing, Seaview Park league, Queens flag leagues, 2 leagues in Las Vegas where I won a few chips when I lived out there … but most recently Kissena, LES, BQFL, 128th, Nassua County Touch Football League (NCTFL).
HOW DID YOU END UP PLAYING IN KISSENA?I started playing in Kissena a few years ago with a team called Organized Choas, which majority of them were co-workers from the hospital we work at. They were a C division team and nobody cared or knew about them until we started winning. The QB was trash and I was having really good games. Then I became known as the tem with the only black guy on it…they were white guys.
HOW DID U END UP PLAYING WITH DC/BULLDOGS?Since playing with Organized Choas Keith knew I was good. Then when Organized Choas got kicked out for a team fight, Frankie, QB from the Playmakers came up to me and asked me to join his team, Deep Cover had a buy that week. Ketih came back the next week and wanted me to tell Frankie I wasn’t playing with him and was going to play with DC, but I told him I already gave Frankie my word and I’m a man of my word. If Frankie would have never asked I would have been with DC 3 years ago. But Keith asked me to join DC in another league outside of Kissena so I said cool. With his talent and my skills we were both eager to see what would happen if he was to have me on his offense. He lucked up with finding out how good I am on D! LOL. We had built a mutual respect for one another beforehand because I always respected his skills and he always respected mine though I played with another team.
WHAT LEAGUE HAS THE BEST COMPETITION OVERALL?I haven’t played in C.I. but from what I see and know, I still think 128th has the best competition. All the relevant teams and players are made up of 128th street players basically. So add in a few LES players, wah-lah, you got City Island. But add in LES players, Kissena players and C.I. players, you got 128th… if that makes any sense.
WHY DID IT TAKE YOU SO LONG TO VENTURE OUT OF KISSENA TO PLAY?It was just a matter of finding the right fit. I’m not a team hopper or a ball whore. I only play if the situation is right and if I feel we got a legit chance at winning. I could have came up to 128th and just asked dudes if they needed a player, but I would have been a giver and not playing D or O because no one knew me. I have nothing against givers, I did it for my team Organize Choas until they realized I can actually play, I’m a team player so I do what’s best for the team and where my team needs me. But it wasn’t until last year I knew about the 128th league.
SO IS IT SAFE TO SAY U R A DC/BULLDOG AWAY FROM KISSENA?Yes I’m a DC/Bulldog away from Kissena and if DC/Bulldog isn’t playing in a league, I’m a free agent.
ARE YOU JOINING THE TEAM IN ALL THE LEAGUES THEY ENTER COME SEPT?From the way it looks yes. I’m taking off the spring and summer, no softball or football. I want to focus on my business PiKasso Renovations, www.pikassorenovation.com … and to work out. I haven’t worked out in over a year. It’s killing me, I maintain a healthy lifestyle and I feel great physically but I need the gym. When I come back for the fall I will be stronger, faster and better. But Hugo is trying to convince me to play the spring and just make 5 games to qualify and come for the playoffs, I’m 75% decided on not playing but nothing is set in stone.
WHERE DID U GET UR TD CELEBRATION FROM? (WIPING UR FEET)I’m a fan of originality and being yourself, so I hate when dudes copy shit like the Aaron Rodgers belt discount double check shit, etc. Be yourself and be unique, get ya own ya own ya heard! Lol I feel like the endzone is my home on the field. I been taking TD’s to the house after the catch and straight son’n dudes for years when the ball goes up. My momma always told me to wipe your feet off before you walk in the house, so I got that from just thinking outside the box. After I score go I go back out the end zone and wipe my feet because apparently I didn’t have time to do so on the way in, momma raised me right! LOL
PEOPLE THINK UR COCKY AND ARROGANT, WHY DO U THINK THAT?Whats the problem with having a certain swag about yourself? I can’t be anyone other than myself. However I think and know that I’m far from cocky and arrogant. Those who don’t know me off the field or never been a teammate of mine wouldn’t have a clue because they are on the outside looking in and take what I say on the blog as me being arrogant or cocky. I call a spade a spade. If something happened in the game like catching 3 TD’s, a XP and a INT to seal the win and I came on the blog and spoke about it, how is that arrogant or cocky, it’s the facts of what happened! I’m a very humble and well rounded dude, but again those who don’t know me, just don’t know me. If you asked any teammate of mine they will tell you I’m one of the coolest and most supportive teammates you can have. When someone fucks up, drops a easy pass or blows an assignment on D and gets scored on, I don’t get down on them I try to help them by telling them what they should do next time around, and I pick them up.
DO U THINK UR A TOP 5 PLAYER CITY-WIDE? WHY?I have no doubt or question in my mind that I am top 3! But I’m a team player by nature and heart. I was raised family orientated so I don’t alienate myself over my teammates. I lead them, just as I lead my family through whatever situation may arise in life. It’s a we thing not a “I” thing. But my play speaks for itself and I’m just now getting to 128th so a lot of dudes never seen me much but will quickly learn. Those who been in Kissena knows that when you play the Playmakers, Kaz is going do him and there’s no stopping it. Again sounding arrogant but everyone knows this and it’s the sheer truth. I feel and believe I can’t be stopped 1 on 1 by anybody. And if you play a zone I’m gonna find the wholes. Put a big guy on me I’m gonna out run him, I’m faster than what a lot of people think… put a little guy on me I’m gonna out jump him or physically debo him, and if you put a guy on me with my spee, my talent, I’m gonna out think him. Gonna exploit whatever mismatch I can to get the advantage. But to answer your question, I am because I play O and D and I’m efficient, effective and talented on both sides of the ball. On Special teams I can clean a muthaafuka’s clock blocking and I can punt too. LOL No bullshit, I can punt real talk, but don’t get to show it because the leagues are throw off. I think C.I. punts on 4th down so maybe I’ll show my skills there in the future if given the chance.
IF U KEEP GETTING EXPOSURE DO U FEEL U WILL GET THE RESPECT OF UR PEERS THAT DON'T KNOW U?I will no doubt get their respect but will always get hate on the blog because I come across arrogant, cocky etc. But I’m not worried about that. Game recognize game. True ballers I will have their respect as they would have mine. I respect anyone who respects me and if they don’t I don’t respect them. I have a mirror personality. Give me respect and love I give you the same. Show me hate and I’ll show you the devil! But respect from “none’s” on the blog, they blog and none because they cant be who they want to be. I don’t address “none’s” comments. I ignore them like the flies on an starving African child who got bigger problems to deal with like eating! J
YOU HAVE HEARD ABOUT PLAYERS BEING PAID, WHAT DO U THINK ABOUT THAT?If the money aint coming out of my pocket how can I care. My money goes towards my family and my business. If a dude is getting paid by someone who is willing to pay him because they feel they want/need him that bad on there team and his services /talent warrants him to get paid, that’s all on the dude paying it. If it ain’t coming out of my budget, why should I care? I can’t knock the man or the man getting paid, they both are getting something out of the situation, one is getting money and the other is getting talent that he wants on his team, end of story. But only bitches worry about bitch shit! Watch TV, not other dudes and their actions! I think it comes down to jealousy because aint no player in the world gonna turn down money to play a game they he would ordinarily play for free, so dudes need to stop frontin like they wouldn’t take money if it was offered to them, they probably more mad that it ain’t them and envy him.
WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT PLAYERS SWITCHING TEAMS EVERY SEASON OR FROM LEAGUE TO LEAGUE?I think every player should have a home base. Now if he wants to play in another league on another team cool, but if he’s for a different team every year, that’s some ball whore shit. But hey, some dudes just want to play so whatever floats their boat.
WHAT LEAGUE HAS THE BEST COMPETITION OVERALL?I haven’t played in C.I. but from what I see and know, I still think 128th has the best competition. All the relevant teams and players are made up of 128th street players basically. So add in a few LES players, wah-lah, you got City Island. But add in LES players, Kissena players and C.I. players, you got 128th… if that makes any sense.
U WERE REALLY CONFIDENT IN THE 128TH CHIP VS MY MOBB, U EVEN BET $1,000, WHY?I’m an avid Chess player and critical thinker. Football is Chess not Checkers. I looked at our teams, the style of play, the match ups on both sides of the ball and I spoke with Keith and told him if we did this, that and this on O and this, that and this on D, we cannot lose and he agreed and was on the same page. Sports is all about mismatches, mistakes and sometimes luck! Lol If you can exploit mismatches, play mistake free ball and capitalize on the other teams mistakes, you win plain and simple. I also consulted with my Kissena QB Frankie who as I said is the smartest QB I ever played with and is a gambler by profession. I mean he lives off gambling in casinos and poker for a living on some real life World Series of Poker shit! Lol. But we had the exact same view and game plan on how the game should be played, and if we did, we would win. He actually wanted to bet $5,000!!! Real talk! I told him I know dudes just got their income taxes but nobody was going to take that bet. LOL
HOW DID IT FEEL TO WIN IN A BLOWOUT N NOT A CLOSE GAME?This may sound humble as hell and like some bullshit, but I didn’t even know the score until the 2 minute warning in the second half. I was so focused and locked in on D I thought the game was closer. I was only concerned with scoring more points and causing more stops on D. At the 2 minute warning Hugo came up to me and said “Yeah my nigga we got this shit”, and I told him to chill it ain’t over, then I asked what was score and when he told me I was like damn, is it really? LOL I was more concerned with our team D and not letting up. I didn’t want them to fall back because of the score. I’m a play 100% til the clock is on “0:00” type of player. So I kept telling Jose and Kindu to Stay discipline on their side in their zone, told Akon to continue to give you the dump off and we will close in for the tag as soon as he catch it rather than playing the dump off and you going over his head for 20 yards down the sideline because you was sending Wes deep and Ralph had to take him. And told Ralph, don’t get beat deep which I knew wouldn’t happen but had to say it just to reinforce it. But it felt great that I was right on all my assumptions on how the game would play out. I don’t know if you remember this, but I put on the blog we would win by 8 on Tuesday but like Friday after I got done analyzing everything I put “this game might be a bigger spread than you think, for BD”. I forgot to write my name in but that was me mistakenly as a none. BTW I hate nones Chuck. The blog would be much better if dudes manned up and said their peace.!
U GAVE BOOBOO UR # DURING THE SUMMER N U WERE SUPPOSE TO PLAY ON CARVER, THATS TRUE?Definitely TRUE! BooBoo is my homie and I have tremendous respect for him and the whole Carver Mobb Organization. I heard of y’all while playing in Kissena and during the summer I met Boo Boo because he joined his uncle on the softball team we played for in Queens and when he told me he played with Carver, I remember seeing Skips videos from the previous winter season and was like that QB is SMART ! LOL So when he asked me to play, I was like hell yeah! Then as the season came closer he said due to politics there was no room for me, something like dudes didn’t want a new dude they didn’t know and yall were already establish and set up which I understood. But for future reference for any team, always welcome a new player, he can become your best player, but you gotta give him a chance but if he aint good you can always cut him! LMAO But if he is good, joins another team and is a difference maker, which I am and this is not being arrogant, it can change the whole dynamic of the way your season turns out. But I would still welcome the invitation by Carver in any league that Bulldogs aren’t playing. J
WHAT WOULD OF BEEN THE OUTCOME IF U WERE ON CARVER FOR THAT CHIP GAME?SEE THIS IS WHY PEOPLE THINK I’M ARROGANT! LOL Because I can only say and believe that Carver would have won if I played for yall. The Bulldogs are a great team with some great players, flat out. But there is a way to break down and exploit any team and any player, at least that’s how I feel and my feelings haven’t failed me yet. I know how to stop the Bulldogs but I would never tell because I play for them. But if I was on Carver we would have won by a TD on the last play over Jose! LOL
WHY IS UR NICKNAME "THE AVATAR"? LOLThat name was given to me by my DC/BD teammates, actually during our Championship game. My teammates see me play every weekend so they see the things I do like last weekend against the Cobras, giver tried to bump me off the line, I put him on his ass… POW!!! And even the week before playing y’all I blocked a throw off on 4th down…dudes never seen shit like that done, so they called me the “Avatar” saying I move around and play like a Created Player on Madden, then someone yelled out Kaz is the Avatar! And it stuck, next thing I know my teammates are callin gme Avatar... and I like it. I’m ready to play this weekend, 2 chips, 1 on Saturday vs. Underrated and 1 on Sunday against my old flag teammate KK in the Titans. I think I just caught another grand Chuck, I heard someone wants to take my bet! :D
WHAT PLAYERS DO U FEEL R SOME OF THE BEST IN THE CITY?As for the QB position Keith of course, you and Danny who I don’t know but heard a lot about, also J-Rod arm is really good as well. I must give an Honorable mention to my Playmakers QB because he knows how to manage the game on offense and he is probably the smartest QB I have ever played with. Keith is smart and getting smarter game by game, but If I could combine Keith’s talent with Frankie’s mind, a unstoppable QB Wizard is what you would get. As for straight talent, Ralph, KK, Akon, Swiss, Shannon, Wes, Pito, J Will, Kindu and Rell Ez! I may be forgetting dudes I don’t know but then again I don’t know them, so I’m not hating on nobody, I can only go off of what I know, so next question.
THERE WERE SOME THINGS THAT WERE SAID BY URSELF REGARDING SWISS OF THE "U", U SAID HE WASN'T THAT IMPRESSIVE THE COUPLE OF TIMES U PLAYED AGAINST HIM, WHY?I wasn’t trying to knock him at all. Just was calling it like it was. When we played he didn’t have much of an offensive presence and on D he was guarding me and it was Keith’s 6th game of the weekend so he told us before the game his arm was hurting. So I had Swiss beat a few times and got bad throws from Keith. Swiss started talking shit, which I always welcome because it makes things more exciting and is apart of the game. I made a few catches but did drop a pass and Swiss got at me for it calling me a bum and every other name in the book! LOL. Then I got a 50 yard bomb on him and they said he tagged me as I went in the endzone, so I had to pop my shit! LOL So we scored and then I recovered the onside and we scored to get the win. Was a really good game and Saturday should be one too. He is a really tough and competitive player, I respect him. I just don’t know him or haven’t seen him enough to call him the “Best” as dudes did on the blog, just like no one has seen me enough to call me the best if the question was asked. Not taking nothing away from him and I’m sure this will hype him up for Saturday but I’m always down for good comp.
YOU GET TO FACE HIM ON SAT FOR THE LES CHAMPIONSHIP, DO YOU THINK YOU WILL GET HIS BEST THAT DAY?I’m sure he will read this or be told about this and do everything he can to make certain I don’t have the type of game I want to have. And I’m going to make certain that I come to play harder than ever and have the game I want to have, so we shall see how it plays out. I don’t think I’m holding him on D though. Though I’m bigger, I usually get the task of holding Shannon fast ass because no one else can. So I get sent in as the neutralizer and hope for the best.
I have a question for you though Chuck, though you may have not had any part in the decision, do you regret not having me on Carver and do “YOU” think me on Carver would have changed that game???
I can honestly say yes I regret it because you r def a very good player and YES it would of changed the outcome because you wouldn't of caught the passes that killed us LOL
There you have it people. You might not like him, you might even hate him but he definitely kept it 100 so you gotta respect him.
Jon from Gmen Interview
March 14, 2012
I am here with Jon, coach/manager of Gmen. Let's Go!
How long have you been around tri-boro football?I HAVE BEEN AROUND LEAGUE FOOTBALL SINCE I WAS 16 AND I'M 30 NOW. SO ABOUT 14-15 YEARS.
When was Gmen created?G-MEN WAS CREATED IN 1994. AT THAT TIME THERE WAS A LEAGUE IN 161ST RAN BY GUY NAME TONY THAT WAS IN A WHEELCHAIR. WE HAD TWO TEAMS. ONE TEAM WAS UNLIMITED AND THE OTHER UNDER 16. THE TEAM NAME WAS WESTSIDE. THE OLDER TEAM WAS NOT VERY GOOD. THEY ONLY WON 2 GAMES IN 161 AND 2 GAMES IN CO-OP. I WAS THE QB FOR THE 16 AND UNDER TEAM. I LOST MY FIRST CHAMPIONSHIP BECAUSE JAMES (128 REF) THREW A BULLSHIT FLAG. DON'T GET MAD AT HIM FELLAS HES BEEN A BAD REF FOR A WHILE NOW. LMAO. CHUCK, YOU REMEMBER WESTSIDE, RIGHT? OUR NICEST PLAYER WAS BRIAN AKA B-DIESEL. YOU GUYS (CARVER) SIGNED HIM AND THE REST WAS HISTORY. EVENTUALLY THE 16 UNDER TEAM GOT OLDER AND CAME INTO ITS OWN IDENTITY AND DECIDED TO RENAME THE ORGANIZATION. BEING THAT MOST OF US WERE GIANTS FANS IT SEEMED NATURAL TO GO WITH G-MEN.
Who is original Gmen?ORIGINAL G-MEN THAT ARE STILL ACTIVE ARE ME, PAPUI, MIKEY, PAVEL, DANNY, AND UVI. WE ALSO HAVE SENIOR MEMBERS THAT HAVE BEEN PART OF G-MEN FOR OVER 5 YEARS LIKE IZ AND RELL. THERE ARE A COUPLE OF MORE THAT DON'T PLAY WITH US ANYMORE FOR EXAMPLE, KINDU WAS PART OF THE ORIGINAL G-MEN TEAM.
How many chips do Gmen have?KISSENA A DIVISION X 2
B DIVISION X 1
C DIVISION X 2
LINDEN A DIVISION X 2 WHICH WERE BACK TO BACK
LINDEN B DIVISION X1
128TH SPRING X 1
THAT'S A TOTAL OF 9 CHAMPIONSHIPS WITH MULTIPLE PLAYOFF AND CHAMPIONSHIP APPEARANCES.
You and No.50(Papui) run the team, how did yall meet?PAPUI AND I HAVE BEEN FRIENDS FOR OVER 25 YEARS. WE MET WHEN WE WERE STILL IN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL THROUGH MUTUAL FRIENDS AND FAMILY.
Why don't you play anymore?I HAD 2 ACL RECONSTRUCTION ON BOTH MY KNEES. RIGHT KNEE WAS HURT IN HIGH SCHOOL. MY LEFT KNEE WAS INJURED BY A HIT BY MY OWN RELL-EZ. LOL. HE WAS TIGHT BECAUSE I CAUGHT AN EXTRA POINT ON HIM. IT WAS ACCIDENT AND IT'S ALL LOVE. I JUST LIKE BUSTING HIS CHOPS. BESIDES THAT I REALLY CAN'T AFFORD TO GET HURT MY FAMILY DEPENDS ON ME AS ITS PROVIDER.
Why do you think people dislike you so much?THE REASON PEOPLE HATE ME THE MOST IS BECAUSE I TALK MASSIVE AMOUNTS OF SHIT. MY OBJECTIVE IS TO GET INSIDE THEIR HEAD AND DISRUPT THEIR FOCUS AND CAUSE THEM TO VEER FROM THEIR GAME PLAN.I AM VERY GOOD AT WHAT I DO. BUT PEOPLE COULD ONLY HATE OR DISLIKE ME IN THAT ASPECT ONLY BECAUSE BEFORE AND AFTER THE GAME I'M AS COOL AND REAL AS THEY COME.
How did you go about getting talent?WE GO ABOUT LOOKING FOR TALENT BY IDENTIFYING ATHLETIC SUPERIORITY FIRST. AFTER THAT PAPUI AND I WILL TALK TO THE INDIVIDUAL AND FIND OUT WHAT TYPE OF PERSON HE IS AND IF HIS PRIORITIES ARE STRAIGHT. IF HE IS WILLING TO COMPLY WITH OUR PHILOSOPHY OF TEAM FIRST AND EGOS LAST THEN HE COULD PLAY FOR G-MEN. WE WILL ALWAYS LOOK FOR THE NEXT BIG STAR BUT EVERY ROLE PLAYER IS JUST AS BIG FOR OUR TEAMS SUCCESS.
What happened to your team in Linden? You loss the A n won the B?
I HATE THINKING AND TALKING ABOUT LINDEN. THE A DIVISION CHAMPIONSHIP WAS A FIASCO. NO DISRESPECT TO THE DP BUT IT WAS SUCH A SOAP OPERA. THE TRUTH IS THIS. RICKY THE COMMISH FROM LINDEN HAD STAKE IN DP. MEANING HE SPONSORED THE TEAM BY COVERING THEIR LEAGUE FEE. SO IN ORDER TO MAKE SURE HE WON HIS MONEY BACK, RICKY THE COMMISH DECIDED IN THE BEST INTEREST OF HIS MONEY TO REF THE A DIVISION CHIP. THERE WERE MANY UNETHICAL AND UNJUST CALLS. WE FACED THE IDENTICAL TEAM IN THE B DIVISION WITHOUT RICKY THE COMMISH BEING A REF AND WE WON BY 3 TOUCHDOWNS. I HOPE FOR THE DOWNFALL OF THAT LEAGUE. I WISH ANY TEAM THAT STILL PARTICIPATES IN LINDEN TO LEAVE AND JOIN KISSENA. VINNY MAYBE CHEAP BUT HIS LEAGUE IS FAIR.
How did Danny become the Gmen qb?DANNY BECAME THE G-MEN QB BECAUSE HE WAS BETTER THAN ME. LOL. I KNOW DANNY SINCE HIGH SCHOOL. PAPUI AND I PLAYED FOR THE SCHOOL TEAM AND DURING OUR SENIOR YEAR DANNY CAME IN AS A FRESHMAN AND TOOK THE SCHOOL BY STORM. AFTER THAT WE BUILT A FRIENDSHIP BECAUSE WE PLAYED TOGETHER AND WHEN HIGH SCHOOL WAS OVER WE ASKED DANNY TO GET DOWN WITH G-MEN AND HE DID. JUST FOR KICKS, ANYONE WHO THINK DANNY IS SUB PAR, CHECK HIS HIGH SCHOOL STATS AND DECIDE FOR YOURSELF.
Did you ever think about pulling Danny from that playoff game at 128th vs Bulldogs?NO, I NEVER THOUGHT ABOUT TAKING DANNY OUT THE GAME. GAMES LIKE THAT WIN, LOSE, OR DRAW BUILD CHARACTER FOR THE QB AND THE TEAM. I HAVE THE UP MOST CONFIDENCE IN MY QB IN ANY SITUATION. IN MY EYES "LOYALTY IS ROYALTY"
What do you think about the merge of DC/Bulldogs?I THINK THAT MERGER WAS A GREAT MOVE ON BOTH PARTS BUT IT WAS BOUND TO HAPPEN BECAUSE THEY NEEDED EACH OTHER TO SUCCEED. WHAT I MEAN IS THAT BULLDOGS PROVIDE THE STAR POWER FOR DC TO COMPETE IN ANY OF THE TOP 3 LEAGUES AND DC PROVIDED THE QB AND THE CHEMISTRY THEY NEEDED TO GO TO THE NEXT LEVEL AND HAVE SUCCESS ON A STEADY BASIS. THE ONLY PROBLEM I SEE IS THAT FROM THIS POINT ON THAT MERGER WILL NEVER HAVE ITS OWN IDENTITY. ITS NOT A PROBLEM NOW BECAUSE THEY ARE WINNING BUT WHEN THE WINNING STOPS AND THE LOSING STARTS, THE TRUE CHARACTER OF A TEAM WILL SHOW.
Do have any animosity towards Will or the Bulldogs?
I DON'T HAVE ANY ANIMOSITY TOWARDS THE BULLDOGS. ACTUALLY THE RIVALRY BETWEEN G-MEN/BD STARTED IN 2004. WHEN MIKE WAS THE QB AND WILL PLAYED WR. WHEN NICK AND CEASAR WERE NICE, JOKING FELLAS. THAT WAS WHEN FOOTBALL WAS FOOTBALL. IF YOU WEREN'T ON MY TEAM WE WOULDN'T EVEN TALK TO EACH OTHER. THE GOOD OLD DAYS. I DO HAVE ILL FEELING TOWARDS WILL THOUGH. I DON'T KNOW HIM AS A PERSON BUT THE WAY HE MOVED WHEN HE FIRST BECAME A GM WAS GRIMEY. HE TRIED AND SUCCEEDED IN DISMANTLING MY TEAM. EVERYTHING THAT PAPUI AND I WORKED SO HARD AND LONG TO PUT TOGETHER ALMOST VANISHED INTO THIN AIR. WITHIN TWO WEEKS THE BULLDOGS BECAME BABY G-MEN. I CANT BLAME WILL FOR PEOPLE CHOOSING TO COMMIT TO HIS TEAM BUT HE WAS GIVING OFFERS THAN NOBODY COULD REFUSE NOR DENY.
What were the circumstances of Danny leaving Gmen to play with Bulldogs?THERE WERE A COUPLE IN MY OPINION.
1. PAPUI AND I WAS NOT GOING TO PAY HIM
2. THE BULLDOGS WERE AND DID PAY HIM.
3. DANNY FELT G-MEN AS AN ORGANIZATION WAS NOT GROWING FAST ENOUGH FOR HIM
4. DANNY THOUGH THAT THE GRASS GREENER ON THE OTHER SIDE.
We all heard that Danny was cut from Bulldogs, do u know why?I'M NOT PART OF THE DC/BD CAMP AND DON'T KNOW THAT ANSWER FOR SURE. RUMOR HAS IT THAT DANNY LOST ABOUT 6 GAMES IN A ROW AND SOME OF THE BD PLAYERS MANDATED A CHANGE. I GUESS DANNY FELT THE WAY THE BD MGMT HANDLED THE SITUATION WAS SNEAKY AND DISHONEST.
How n Why did Danny become part of the Gmen again?DANNY WAS UNHAPPY WITH HIS SITUATION AT THE BULLDOG CAMP. DANNY REACHED OUT TO PAPUI N TOLD HIM HE WANTED TO BECOME A GMAN AGAIN. AFTER MUCH DEBATE BETWEEN PAPUI N I WE DECIDED THAT DANNY WAS A GREAT FOOTBALL PLAYER BUT A BETTER FRIEND TO US. EVERYONE MAKES MISTAKES BUT ITS HOW YOU HANDLE YOURSELF AFTER THE MISTAKES THAT MAKE YOU A MAN. ME, PAPUI, AND THE TEAM WAS EXCITED TO GET OUR QB,OUR FRIEND, OUR BROTHER BACK
To your knowledge was Danny ever paid to throw for Bulldogs?YES, DANNY WAS PAID TO PLAY FOR THE BULLDOGS. ANYBODY WHO SAYS DIFFERENT IS A LIAR.
How many players do u think get paid on the Bulldogs?AT ONE TIME I THOUGHT EVERYONE WAS GETTING A SLICE OF THE PIE. I REALLY DON'T KNOW. IF I WAS A BETTING MAN I WOULD SAY KINDU AND AKON GET "RACKS ON RACKS ON RACKS" LMAO. LET'S GET THIS STRAIGHT, I DON'T CARE WHO HE PAYS ITS HIS POCKET.
I asked Danny to do an interview, do u know why he declined it?I THINK DANNY DIDN'T WANT TO DO THE INTERVIEW FOR MANY REASONS. I THINK THE MAIN REASON IS THAT DANNY STILL HAS A GOOD RELATIONSHIP WITH WILL THE BD GM. SOME OF THE QUESTIONS WOULD ASK DANNY MIGHT THROW WILL UNDER THE BUS. DANNY IS A GOOD DUDE AND DOESN'T WANT ANY NEGATIVE ATTENTION TOWARDS HIM OR THE GMEN ORGANIZATION SO NOT DOING THE INTERVIEW HE KEPT THINGS POLITICALLY CORRECT.
Did you ever pay a player to play on Gmen?JON AND PAPUI HAVE NEVER PAID A PLAYER TO PLAY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE ME, WHY DO YOU THINK WE LOST HALF OUR TEAM TO THE BULLDOGS THAT FIRST YEAR.
Kindu played with Gmen before, why did he leave?BEFORE I ANSWER THAT QUESTION, YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND THAT ARE 2 KINDU'S. KINDU THE FRIEND IS LOYAL, TRUSTWORTHY, A LEADER, AND WILLING TO HELP YOU. KINDU THE FOOTBALL PLAYER IS A MERCENARY, A FOLLOWER, GOING INTO EVERY FOOTBALL SITUATION THAT BENEFITS HIM THE MOST. PLUS, THE BULLDOGS PAID HIM. LOL
Congrats on making the final four in CI, you guys have Sugarhill this week, whats your chances?THANKS CHUCK. 7-2 REG SEASON RECORD WITH A FINAL FOUR APPEARANCE. NOT TO SHABBY FOR A TEAM THAT COULDN'T HANDLE CONTACT OR NO ONE THOUGHT WE WOULD MAKE IT OUT OF REGULAR SEASON.OUR CHANCES VERSUS SUGAR HILL ARE 50/50 BECAUSE OF THE ANY GIVEN SUNDAY CONCEPT. FOR ALL THE PEOPLE WHO WANT SOMETHING TO BLOG ABOUT, I SAY G-MEN BY A TOUCHDOWN. LOL
Now that you have joined City Island what do you think is different about it compared to the other leagues besides the four downs n kicking?THE 4 DOWNS WE WERE USE TO BECAUSE OF OUR LINDEN EXPERIENCE. THE KICKING WE WERE USE TO BECAUSE OF OUR KISSENA EXPERIENCE. THE BIGGEST TRANSITION WAS THE BLOCKING ASPECT. I THINK WE STRUGGLED EARLY WITH BLOCKING ESPECIALLY ON SPECIAL TEAMS BUT WE ARE GETTING THE HANG OF IT NOW.
Looking at your team right now, do u think your missing something to put u in that elite team group?WHAT DO YOU MEAN, G-MEN ISN'T ELITE?? LMAO. I THINK WE LACK THE ABILITY TO PUT A TEAM AWAY. WE PLAY WITH SO MUCH EMOTIONS THAT SOMETIMES WE MAKE SIMPLE MISTAKES THAT REALLY KILLS US DOWN THE STRETCH OF GAMES.
Lol Not saying that just compared to the teams we all expect to b in the chip or final four.
Rumor has it that the Gmen will enter Bqfl? Why or why not?G-MEN FUTURE AT BQFL SUNDAY IS UNCERTAIN. RIGHT NOW THE LEAGUES WE PARTICIPATE IN TREAT US RIGHT AND THE POT SIZES, ESPECIALLY AT CITY ISLAND IS ENOUGH TO KEEP ANYONE THERE.
RellEZ is a very good player, why do u think he doesn't get as much consideration as one of the top players out here?RELL-EZ IS A TRUE FUCKING VENOM IN MY BOOK. I THINK PEOPLE DON'T RECOGNIZE HIM BECAUSE HE'S BLESSED WITH THE CURSE OF BEING A G-MEN. RELL ALWAYS PLAYS DEFENSE OF THE OPPOSING TEAMS ALL-STAR AND PRODUCES WITH INTERCEPTIONS AND BIG HITS. THEN HE GOES ON OFFENSE AND CATCHES PASSES AND TOUCHDOWN IN CLUTCH SITUATIONS. MAYBE NOW THAT HE IS GETTING AIR TIME WITH SKIP AND PEOPLE ARE WATCHING HIM IN CITY ISLAND HE CAN GET THE PROPS AND RECOGNITION THAT HE ALWAYS DESERVED.
Who on your team is a player who you can always count on but doesn't get as much credit as he should?I CAN COUNT ON ANY OF MY G-MEN TO SHOW UP AND PLAY THERE HEART OUT FOR ME BUT THERE ARE SOME THAT HAVE BEEN AROUND AWHILE AND ARE KEY COMPONENTS TO G-MEN PASS AND PRESENT SUCCESS.
CHUCK, I KNOW YOU ASKED FOR ONE BUT ITS A TEAM GAME.. COULDN'T JUST GIVE YOU ONE. MY GRATITUDE GOES OUT TO ALL THESE PLAYERS AND FRIENDS.
What players would you like to have as a Gmen for a season?I WOULD LIKE TO HAVE A SEASON WITH PITO BTB/RAWNESS, MARCOS BUCS/PACKERS, RALPH DC/BD, AND #5 FROM THE BROWNS. DONT KNOW HIS NAME, SORRY 5. LOL
How do you feel about players that switch teams every season?I HATE IT. IT TAKES AWAY FROM THE COMPETITIVE SPIRIT OF THE GAME. IF YOU AS A GM CANT FIELD YOUR TEAM WHEN YOU WANT, WITH YOUR TRUE ROSTER, THEN YOU DONT HAVE A REAL TEAM. FOR EXAMPLE, IF I WANTED MY TEAM TO PLAY A GAME RIGHT NOW AT 4AM I COULD SCHEDULE IT AND HAVE MY COMPLETE ROSTER, CAN YOU?
Well Carver can but I know what you mean LOL, Thanks for the interview n for keeping it 100. Good luck to your team this wkend.
THANKS CHUCK FOR GIVING MY WORD A CHANCE TO BE HEARD. I KNOW YOU GONNA GET A LOT OF HATE AND CRITICISM FOR CHOOSING ME AS AN INTERVIEW. I ANSWERED THE QUESTIONS TRUTHFULLY AND TO BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE.
Child's Play Interview by Kev Clark
March 9, 2012
OK Kev the hall of famer/1st Sugarhill pick let's do this lol
How long have you been a QB?
WOW! Since about 1993-94
Is carver the first team you started with?
No. I started playin with Longhorns n Bearcats. I was a WR n played a lil defense now n then.
So how many chips have you won?
Honestly not sure but maybe 30 something lol
So what does you coach Pamz bring to the table that you don’t have?
That b accountable for your own actions mentality, if u play bad he's gonna let u know. Also niggas won't miss games just cuz. He also makes good in game decisions. He's a motivator.
And what do you think he will change when he comes home?
Our mentality 1st, if. We think we the best then he wants perfection. Niggas wanna play well n win when Pamz is on that sideline.
Why do you think dave hates carver?
idk, use to think it was just football but it goes beyond that n idk y. Maybe cuz he thinks we r not as good as we think or we get too much props.
Who is 1 player on defense that you have to account for?
Pito n Swiss. They both have u thinkin they are in one area of the field n as ur throwing the ball they are pickin it off lol I usually make defenders think but they make me think.
Are you ever nervous before a chip game? And give a reason one way or another
Hell Yea. Lol I don't sleep much the night b4, n until that 1st completion that helps u calm down I am a wreck. But u will never see it lol
Toughest team you had to face in you r carrier? And why?
Sugarhill for sure because yall had so much talent n all our games were so close but now Undarated is that team. They have athletic defenders n they get away wit holding lol
And why haven’t you found a backup to give you break?
Trust me we have been searchin lol the pretty good qbs don't wanna b backups n the guys we did have the team wasn't confident wit them throwing. I kinda spoiled them lol
You are slow as hell. How is that its hard to tag you?
Lmao, damn I am? I think I am quick. My reaction time is quick. Usually a fast hiker will rush u n I developed that signature move that seems to always work lol I saw u use it a couple of times
Give me your top 6 defenders and 6 offensive players? Any league
Swiss,Pito,Nas,Joe,Akon,Shakes from Bk, that's Defense. Offense Swiss,Nas,Pito,BooBoo,Wes, last Joe n prob Akon
Do you think playing in 112th street made you tougher? Those games were crazy?
I think starting there def helped make me tough. Every week there were dirty hits, fights n all that. But there were very good ball players out there.
And I need your 5 best QBS?
Me 1st lol You,Lou Sh,Reggie, n the. Last is tricky but I'll say Pablo
And if you wasn’t playing who would you come outside to see play?
Good question, u for sure, Swiss, Nas, Shannon n teams Undarated, Dynasty, Bulldogs.
So if you had to choose would you want a strong arm with no running ability or a average arm and escapablility?
I would take average arm wit escapability because since I'm not dumb I can make up for not having a strong arm. Been doin that for years lol
Why does everyone like you? what is your secret? You are a con artist. Remember vangundy called Jordan that cause he was so nice before the game but during the game he would kill you. are you like that?
Lol I think I'm like that. I'm kool n get along wit my peers. I even find myself helping other qbs in games I'm watching. I just hate to see bad qb play. I also keep it 100 wit people, If we r kool then we will always b kool no matter what happens in the game.
How do you feel about this wkends games?
Got alot on my plate this wkend. We got Evo in BK who always plays us tough, the Packers in CI who r dangerous but they r not playin well right now so hope that continues lol N the chip game vs a talented Bulldogs/DC team. So not much sleep lol
Bulldogs do have alot of talent and speed, why do you think your gonna win?
Honestly we have no choice. We loss back to back chips vs Btb we should of won n now that we bumped Btb we have to win it all. We just have to play smart n mistake free football.
Do you think the hikers will play a major role in who wins the chip?
Maybe but I think Keith will throw the ball by 5 n so I will I, now if the defenses are playing well then I think I have a better chance of extending the play cuz our hiker (Mijo) is very good.
When you retire what do you want your peers to say about you?
That I was cold as ice in pressure situations, that I was the smartest qb not the most talented. I put in alot of work to get where I'm at n to not lose that edge n fire I say to myself, "Another season I have to prove myself and win a chip" So far so good.
Kev Clark Interview
March 5, 2012
Here wit the Hall of Famer Kev Clark, let's goooo!
How long have u been playing football? 25yrs
What was your first team you played for? The Dolphins. With the ref choochie
What do u think a qb needs to have first, talent or smarts? Need both but you got to have a brain. There are some QBs that can throw the ball 100yrd but they cant score from the 1 on 4th down. So you need both
What people don't know is your team DEK ran 128th back in the days when it was on 90th n York, how many chips did yall win? A lot I don't have a number but a lot. That's why I get upset when people say I only win because of Swiss.
How did you end up playing for SH? Well Tone the founder of SH asked if I would play with him so basically Tone Papo and myself put that together. Lol tell everyone THAT!!!
Tone (original Sugarhill creator) will b home soon, what do you think will happen with the current SH? He will continue to keep his name going but he better have a person who can spot talent.
How did Dave end up taking the SH team? Well he became cool with Tone and then when Tone got locked up Dave took over. And he did a good job
Why do so many people hate Dave? Idk.see I have known Dave for over
30yrs so I know him. he comes off as a Dick but he is a loyal friend and a good guy. And he expects loyalty back
Why do u think Dave hates Carver so much? I guess cause you guys are the so call rival.if it wasn't for carver mob I would have 50 chips instead of 45.lol
Why did Sugar Hill fall apart after so much success? Well you are part of the blame.lol what it is is that if you play with sugar you cant be friends with guys like you and that aint cool. Your daughter and my daughter hang out. You ex and my wife knew each other before me and you knew each other so again the loyality thing and I didn't think it was right so I quit. And most guys will follow the QB.LOL LOL
Your SH team back then was stacked, y do u think you didn't win more chips? Cause dudes didn't know there rolls. See when you winning dudes that don't normally play offense now want to start playing offense. You have to have a team where guys know there rolls. And because of you. standing in our way.lol
Do u think Tone or Dave was a better GM for SH? Tone was a better talent finder. Dave is more of a organizer. Both was good for sugarhill but you still needed cats from SPANISH HARLEM TO PUT IT TOGETHER.LOL LOL
If SH only plays in 2 leagues why do u think he would think there isn't loyalty if a player plays with another team in another league?his thinking is that if I play on a team with you and when its time for me to play against you I wont go all out. I told him one time I only know how to play 1 way and that's all out. Ilike you guys but if I get a chance to kill yall I will then after the game we can get high and drunk together. You see he cant do that.like Gotti Marquis and Julio them dudes se me on the field and wont say anything cause Dave got them programmed to hate everybody. I just won chips with Gotti whats the problem!!!!
If I'm not mistaken Tone was one of the first to pay players, do you think its a good idea? Hell no. at the end of the year you can bless whomever you want but up front money is wack. Never played for pay but at the end if you want to bless a star on your team then I don't see the problem with that
Did u get paid by Tone? If so how much? Never I never took money. I play for hood love. When cats see me in the summer they be like damn that nigga Kev is nice. That shit is priceless!!!!
Who out of the current SH team in CI is a core member? Well core is LOU WES AND ED AND DAVE. THAT'S IT. REMEMBER EVERYONE I AM SUGARHILL NUMBER 1 PICK!!!!!!!!!!!!
How did you end up being the Qb for Undarated? Well it was a mutual thing. Akon asked if I would throw in dyckman for them and sense Sugarhill had broken up I was looking for a team.
I know u got hurt in CI n haven't played since, do you still have urge to play? Hell yea but I need to move around. I aint a pocket QB like you. so if I cant roll then I cant be effective. Secret don't tell anybody
You have been the Qb for Sugarhill and Undarated, which team did you feel better throwing for? Sugarhill had more weapons but unda has that 1 game changer on both sides of the ball, not that blow wes or ed wasn't but Swiss remindes me of myself. I still better than everybody at 44 and I will die thinking that!!!!
You have gotten to see Pito (Raw) n Swiss up close as a teammate, which would u take in there Prime? Talent they are even but Swiss has a little more killer in him than Pito does. So I would say Swiss. But they both need QBS to win. That's where we come in. lol lol
You have been Playing for many years, name your top 5 qbs of all-time? (Urself included) well me 1ST.LOL.CHUCK,PAPO,LOU FROM SH,SNUFF I LIKE SNUFF,
Who do you think is the up and coming Qbs today? Well I like Danny he just needs to learn.Akon if he contines to play the position. But it aint easy. You know that
Without you Undarated a different team, besides them who do u see in the chip in CI? I GUESS YOU ARE THE FAVORITE. YOU ARE THE ONLY ONE I WORRY ABOUT.I GET A LITTLE NERVOUS WHEN I AM ABOUT TO PLAY YOU. DON'T TELL ANYONE OR I WILL FIND YOU AND HARM YOU.LMFAOOOOOOOOO
You played against Snuf n the Packers a lot recently, why can't he get over the hump and win a chip in City Island? Lol my thinking is. The more chips you lose the more nervous you are at the chip game. Like you and I we can lose 2 chips in a row and still be considered the baddest QBs ever. I haven't been nervous in a while that's because im used to winning the same for you. so snuff is probably alittle nervous during the game
Do you think the OGs' in the game should create a Hall of Fame of Triboro football? Lol hell yea. Maybe 35 and older against 35 younger too. that would be cool.
When ur done playing for sure, what Do u want niggas to say about u when they speak to the younger generations? I want them to say that in the big games Kev came through!!
There you have it folks, Uncut,100%real, from the man himself. No.1 Sugarhill draft pick lol
March 1, 2012
Im here with Will from the Bulldogs, let's get to it.
How long have you been playing football?
What up Chuck. I've been playing football since I was like 18, and I'm
How do you know Keith?
I met Keith playing football in Kissina.
How/When did you meet Danny (qb G-men)?
I also met Danny in Kissina about 6-7 years ago.
How long has Bulldogs been an organization?
I think its been around for about 10 years.
What made you decide putting together the Bulldog organization?
I was a player on the Bulldogs and they only played in Kissina. I ventured into other leagues with Rob from the Hustlers, (the year we won the chip in 128 was my first time ) I like to be my own boss so I decided to put the Bulldogs in ETS, thats the year we lost to u
(Carver) in the chip.
As a GM what league do you think is the best right now and why?
Right now the most competitive league, I would say, City Island, then
BQFL and in a close third, 128th.
The Bulldogs were suppose to join city island, what went wrong?
Since Keith was the only quarterback I had at this point, we were only
going to play in BQFL or City Island, and Keith thought that it would
be easier to play in BQFL rather than City Island because BKYLN is
closer to Kissina.
If Kissina isn't in the top 3 leagues then why does DC still play there?
Well DC aways played in Kissina so its like home. When we win the chip this year it will be our last there.
Whats gonna happen when Keith's team DC joins leagues you want your
Bulldogs to join?
That wont ever happen because what ever leagues DC play in, Bulldogs
wont play in and vise versa.
Who was your first Bulldog qb?
My first QB was Keith because when my boy Mike threw, I was not calling the shots so technically Keith was.
How did you go about finding talent for the Bulldogs?
Well, we had the core then I got Jose, Kindu and Keith. I had brought
them to play on the Hustlers so they came with me when I left to do my
Is there anything going on with J.will n Kindu not gettin along?
Who said that they always got along, cant believe everthing u hear.
Why did you replace Keith with Danny?
I just wanted a change of pace, I didn't want to replace Danny with
Keith. I just wanted to try something different maybe it would of lit a
fire in him. I am still learning how to do the GM thing this is my 3rd
year doing this.
I think you read the ? If Keith was your Qb why did you replace him wit
I didn't, Danny came up to me and Keith in LES and asked if he could
play with us in BK. Since we were playing in many leagues and Danny
being a good QB we made it happen.
Why do you think its ok to pay a player to play on your team?
I don't think its cool to pay players to play, its touch football not
What did you offer Danny to qb for your team?
Nothing, I take care of all the teams expenses, I take the team out to
eat or drink and i take care of the bill. It's nothing, I use this
football league to network for my shop. Steven's Auto Collision 1607
Stillwell Ave Bx NY 10461 just in case any 1 needs it! lol, also I have
6 tow trucks 24/7 if anyone needs.
Close sources have said that they know of players you have paid, are
No one could say I paid no one to play. Maybe drank and party good with
me, maybe gave some one a little gas money, but to say I gave some one
$ to play it's crazy. I am business man so if it's not making me money
I am not investing in it!!
N if you were to ever pay a player what 3 players would you pay?
If I was to pay 3 players it would be Derell Revis, Tom Brady, and
Calvin Johnson (megatron)
Lol Not Nfl, what 3 from the leagues we play in would you pay?
Is that a trick question i dont pay players to play,No matter what u hear.Let me make it clear if its not making me money iam not paying money.iam buisness man.To whom it my concern i fix crashed cars STEVENS AUTO COLLISION 1607 STILLWELL AVE BX NY 10461,
Ok for arguements sake lets say u were going to pay 3 players to help u win in any league what players would you pay?
ok cool for arguments sake i would pay Marcelo(the cleat and gloves dude) Pops from DC and Hugo from DC.
Your Bulldogs recently pulled out a close one to Danny and the Gmen,
why do you think your team was able to hold them to 6 pts?
Danny is a great QB, I think the wind was a huge factor in that game.
Other than that the over and under in that game would have been 80.
Do you think u have a rivalry with Gmen? N Why?
There has always been a rivalry with Gmen, since back in the Kissina
days, and now with the whole Danny situation things will get more
How/Why is Danny no longer the qb for Bulldogs?
Me being an inexperienced GM, went about certain decisions the wrong
If you can go back what would you do different?
Outside of football Danny became a good friend. He even send alot of work to my shop. So if i can go back i would of spoke to Danny first before i made certain moves. This is 3rd year doing this, so iam still learning.
What players out there now do you think fit into what the Bulldogs are
trying to do?
Right now we are good with the whole BD and DC movement, but come
September we are going to need a kicker to join City Island.
What teams do. U feel is in the way of you winning Championships every year?
First is Carver, u guys beat us my first year in ETS when we had our undefeated season, then knocked us out the playoffs in another undefeated season in 128 last year.So we owe u Chuck. Then its Dynasty they beat us in the chip last year in bqfl and knocked us out in the final 4 this past season. Those are the 2 that has keeped us from winning chips, but its all going to change we taking everything in every league we play!! lol
All the critics think it will b fairly easy sunday against Evo on 128th, what do you think?
This text is greenWell i go into everygame thinking iam win, but to think it will be easy vs Evo is crazy. Evo is a good team and is in the final 4 for a reason , but with that being said Evo wont be playing the chip in 128 this year!! Bulldogs vs ??? in the chip.
February 22, 2012
I'm here wit QB Keith of Bulldogs/Deep Cover, let's get to it!
HOW LONG HAVE U BEEN A QUARTERBACK?
First i want to say thanks for having me and and allowing me the spotlight for a few minutes! I have been a quarterback for as long as i can remember going back to playing in 14 and 16 & under in queens so to answer its been a minute....lol But i think in all my years im having the most fun now.
HOW MANY CHIPS DO U HAVE N WHAT LEAGUES?
I have alot but basicly the one everybody seems to care about is in 128 in my first year with the Hustlers! Nobody knew me i knew nobody so it was fun not playing to the names on the back of the jerseys instead i was just playing and having fun. It actually open my eyes to playing more outside of Kissena. I also have a chip in Kissena A, 4 or 5 B chips in Kissena, 2 in LES, 2 in BQFL on Saturday and we DC won our first chip in 128 spring B league which was our (lets see if we can play out of Kissena) and we did well. We also have 1 Long Island Flag Football chip a few years back. there use to be a league in Queens called YMCA which we won a few times as well. So winning chips is not knew to us.
WHAT TEAM DO U REPRESENT 1ST? WHY?
I'm Deep Cover 100% over any team, these are guys i grew up with and would never turn my back on them for any other team.
WHO CREATED DEEP COVER N HOW LONG HAVE U BEEN THROWING FOR THEM?
Well Deep Cover has been around a long time and basicly played only in Kissena for about 10 years. We all grew up together and had different names from public enemy, Gamblers, then Deep Cover and With Deep Cover we had 3 generations from older to rookies and eventually we all kinda blended to 1 team.. So my generation created the name and we been playing ever since under Deep Cover and all the main guys have left doing there own thing except me. We all have say but im the General and Hugo #88 runs it with me, we make decisions as a team but i had a vision on where we wanted to go and here we are playing it out, not sure how far we can go but we trying!
WHY DO YOU THINK DEEP COVER DOESN'T GET THE RESPECT THEY DESERVE?
Well i will say 1 because we come from Queens 2 because nobody knows us 3 because they have not played us lol 4 because the leagues we won didnt have Carver Ten Park Underrated in them. As i said earlier the plan was start playing in leagues to see if we can compete and we did and we won and its disrectfull to the teams we played which i thought where very good we played 7 seasons as we are currently put together and won 6 of them only lost was in the spring vs GMEN in the final 4 in a great game that was lost at the end of the game. We never say where the best team we just gotta be the best team and play better that game and taking what we already had and adding Ralph, Kaz, Alejandro, Upshaw, Matrix and playing as 1 unit and leave the ego at the door has worked out really nice and people playing there role and stepping up when called on. We played Carver Underated Packers Bomb Squad and won and if we lost it was by 1 or 2 points and if thats not enough to say we belong or enough to get respect then keep hating and keep motivating us, we know we belong and we set our sights to proving it.
WHO IN KISSENA GIVES U THE MOST PROBLEMS IN YOUR RUN TO WINNING THIS YEARS CHIP?
Any team that stand across from us and our goals. This football shit is funny because if you dont come with your A game you can lose and be home watching the next round. We havent played well in Kissena but its playoff time and we ready to defend that chip!!! We gonna refocus, so the answer would be the Titans (from Linden) are the first problem that needs to be solved
WHO IN KISSENA YOU FEEL CAN VENTURE OUT AS DEEP COVER IS GOIN TO AND HAVE SOME SUCCESS?
In Kissena the Canes which is basically Evo, the Outlaws which have a really good qb, a beast in Jav and alot of talent, TP which has been in most non-contact leagues and had success. But I will say those teams would have to recruit a few players to win consistently as DC did.
WHAT LEAGUE DO U FEEL HAS THE MOST COMPETITION? WHY?
Without question BQFL on sundays. The atmosphere is great and i think the talent is great, when its playoffs everybody is there to watch so dont mess up lol the field is condusive to my strenghts and its not taking away from City Island which i havent played in with my team. BQFL has teams from Queens, Brooklyn, LES, and Uptown and playing Cobras Titans Carver Underated Dynasty Evo Spartans Panthers Go Getters is fun and competitive. maybe that will change when we go to City Island next season.
SO DEEP COVER IS DEF GOIN INTO CITY ISLAND, WHAT LEAGUE WILL YOU NOT ENTER TO MAKE ROOM?
Kissena, I want and my team wants to play in the best leagues vs the best comp and if I had to pick a league to eliminate on sundays it would be Kissena.
WHAT WENT WRONG WIT DEEP COVER IN NON-CONTACT?
Basicly we where 6-2 playing with a skeleton crew. We werent getting the people to commit and be there, Ralph and Al where on Bull dogs upshaw was on the hustlers some guys had to work so it made it frustrating so it was better to shut it down and wait till the next season with all the pieces.
WHAT TEAM DO U FEEL U HAVE A BETTER CHANCE AT WINNING A CHIP, BULLDOGS OR DEEP COVER? WHY?
This is a tough question becuase if you remove all DC players and keep the Bull Dogs Jwill Kendu Ralph etc... with me throwing, first i would say the talent on the Bull dogs is second to none but chemistry is the biggest problem on Deep Cover we have chemisty and people know there roles and thats what wins Chips, if im not comfy it wont work!!! I'm def more comfy with Deep Cover players!! Sooo i would say Deep Cover but where a united front now so its BDDC lol
DO U THINK THERE IS SOMEWHERE IN YOUR GAME U NEED TO IMPROVE?
Yes everything lol Honestly i think once we think we got it all figured out is when you become complacent, as a fellow QB you know your only as good as your last game and with the addition of the blog, Skip Capture (great job bro!) it has become our NFL and people gonna let you know if you stinking it up, but im always thinking of ways to make myself better. For instance i tend to think i can fit balls (no homo) in tight windows but as we know its not the case sometimes or i get lazy on some passes but i def want to cut down on turnovers.
SOME OF YOUR TEAMMATES SAY YOU ARE THE BEST QB IN THE GAME RIGHT NOW, DO U THINK SO? Y OR Y NOT?
I dont sit hear and ever give myself props for being the best that is something your peers have to see but im no slouch and i do feel im the best fit for Deep Cover and one of the top 3 QBs playing and will make any team im on better but it all depends on what the criteria is for being the best?? is it chips that determine that?? I feel like i'm going to win every game i play and my confidence soaring. But i will say i have to win a few chips for props for myself and Deep Cover and we are all aboard heading in that direction be it this year ot next we winning some chips.
IF YOU FEEL YOUR TOP 3 WHO ARE THE OTHER 2 QBs?
Top Qbs are you (chuck),Jrod, danny, kev clark,lou, reggie, ari, myself... with the game on the line I feel I can get it done.
GOOD LIST BUT YOU SAID YOUR IN THE TOP 3, WHO'S THE OTHER 2 OFF THAT LIST? LOL
Ok top 2 U n me, lol Keep it 100.... You got the hardware
THERE IS A POLL ON THIS BLOG OF A FRANCHISE PLAYER YOU WOULD START YOUR TEAM WITH, WHO DID U CHOOSE N WHY?
Without hesitation its Ralph and for so many reasons. The guy can play defense and offense and is very good on both sides of the ball, has been a trememdous teammate and leader. I hear people say he drops passes lol everybody drops passes but i look at the big plays he makes for me and Deep Cover! We started to make noise as soon as he stepped on the field and started to played with us and we havent looked back so basicly he took us over the top for sure, for DC the guy is a difference maker. Also, that list is loaded with great players and i played with many of them so i had a chance to see them in action week in and week out so it no disresepect for anybody else i mean swiss akon paul wall pito Moe shannon arod and the rest are all amazing but would they fit what im doing and gel with me?? I dont know.
HOW LONG HAVE U BEEN THE QB FOR BULLDOGS?
I been the QB for The Bulldogs for about 3 seasons my first season we went underfeated and lost to you guys (Carver) in the chip...grr which still i have no regrets because losing to you guys is nothing to hang your head to. The next season we lost to Dynasty in the final four again nothing to hang your head about, and this past season we lost to Dynasty again. this year we are currently underfeated in BQFL and playing well as a team and in 128 we play GMEN to get to the final 4 so 2 leagues yet to be determined.
DO YOU GET PAID OR GET ANY COMPENSATION FOR THROWING FOR BULLDOGS?
Dammmm lol Not 1 cent and nor would i, Wil is my boy outside of football and i just wouldnt feel comfy asking or taking anything thing from him. I do this for the love and i dont knock people that get paid nor do i know of any players that get paid on the Bull Dogs. Will is a giving dude and if paying for jerseys, ref fees, fixing peoples cars and saving people bread, paying for lunch is a compensation then im guilty he bought me subway once..... lol Nobody gets rich off this shit
HOW DID THE MERGER WIT BULLDOGS COME ABOUT?
Well it wasnt a merge in the beginning being that Deep Cover dropped out so it was a dead issue to me and Danny was throwing for the Bull Dogs so i was just doing me and Deep Cover. Got a call from will asking me to throw in 128 and i said ok but didnt think it was possible being that we played and dropped out, he told me it was all good and i said aight and i played the first 2 games and i think it was Bomb Squad and Steel Force and we lost and i wasnt feeling comfy with the routes and didnt feel like i was on the same page with the receivers, so i called will and needed to inset players around me that will keep me settled and relaxed and so far it has worked out pretty good.
YOU SAID YOU NEED TO BE COMFY WHEN THROWING SO IF U THREW FOR SAY CARVER YOU DON'T THINK YOU WOULD DO WELL?
When i say comfy I mean run my plays right n stay on your routes. If any team does that I will have success so to answer your ? I think i will do well with any team that runs the offense right.
WHAT WERE THE CIRCUMSTANCES FOR U TAKIN OVER THE QB ROLE FOR BULLDOGS MIDWAY THROUGH THE SEASON?
As i said before Wil called me and asked if i wanted to play because Danny wasnt the QB anymore and at the time i was booked up and couldnt do it so he asked Ari to throw in Linden and Reggie to throw in 128 which he did for a game or so and being that Deep Cover wasnt in Sunday BQFL i agreeed to play there and then i think Reggie didnt come so with Wil being my boy i took it on.
WITH THE BULLDOGS ROSTER BEING STACKED IN RECENT YEARS WHY DO YOU THINK YOU HAVEN'T WON YET?
yes the Bulldogs are stacked with talent all over the place but with talent there are egos with no role players. Who runs the hooks? who runs down on special teams? and there are alot of egos which some may seem as good but the chemistry isn't there at certain points of the game and I'm not sure why it hasn't clicked in the past. For whateva reason it hasn't but they did win 1 chip with danny throwing so it wasnt all all bad. So I went to Will with a solution to fix some issues n so far it has worked out, not saying we will win it all but it gives me a better chance to succeed on the offensive end.
WHY IS KENDU PLAYING AND JWIL ISN'T?
Kendu is enjoying what we are doing!! As far as i know Jwil took the winter off and if not he would be playing with us.
SO THERE IS NO TRUTH TO THE CONTRAVERSY ABOUT THEM?
Not that i know of, i never knew that there was a problem!
DO U HAVE ANY BEEF WIT DANNY FROM GMEN?
I have no beef with Danny i wasnt even on the team when all that stuff was going on. I didnt get involved with the logistics of why Danny wasnt throwing no more, i never called Wil and asked him to cut Danny for me to throw why would i do that im in too many leagues as it was. Matter of fact i asked Danny to come play so i could focus on Deep Cover so why would i want him to go so from my side im good, so maybe you have to interview him to get his side.
YOUR BULLDOGS PLAY GMEN THIS WKEND IN A PLAYOFF GAME, WHAT TYPE OF ATMOSPHERE DO U THINK WILL B OUT THERE?
It will be a great atmosphere and what a storyline Danny coming back to get revenge and try to send his former team home cant ask for more then that lol but if you played the GMEN you know what your gonna get, there are no secrects to how they play and its about executing and see what happens.
WHAT WILL B THE DECIDING FACTOR TO WHO WINS THAT GAME?
Executing and limiting mistakes and playing error free. If the receivers run there routes and catch the ball we should be ok and from my perspective just dont turn the ball over. We ususally play low scoring games so any mistakes could be costly.
DO YOU FEEL DANNY WAS GIVEN A FAIR SHOT AT BEING THE BULLDOGS QB?
I think anytime as a quarterback you are not given a chance to complete the season you started i personally wouldnt feel like i was given a fair chance.
WHY DO YOU FEEL BULLDOGS GOT RID OF DANNY?
That may not b a question for me to answer, I Plead the 5th!
WOW! Well there you have it, Keith (Dc-BD) uncensored! Let's see who's up next at The Playground!

Alot that boys will to win is incredible and he causes match up problems offensively and can lock up defensively.
HOW DO U FEEL ABOUT TEAMS PAYING PLAYER AND PLAYERS SWITCHING TEAMS EVERY SEASON?
Well the paying players if u can do it and the players is worth it then u have to run it like a business U can't waste more than what u can win And as for the players switching teams , I guess they try to find the easiest way to win... I like teams that it's more like family oriented.
IF YOU WERE GOIN TO START A TEAM WHICH PLAYER WOULD YOU PICK 1ST?
SPEAKING OF SWISS AND UNDARATED, HOW DID IT FEEL HAVING HIM N AKON ON YOUR TEAM OPPOSE TO PLAYIN AGAINST THEM?
well before undarated they played on bomb squad at dyckman and won 2 chips with them, then they formed a monster crew which we upset in the chip when my team was all youngins.. Playing against them showed me why they made it easy for me when we played together
WHAT TEAMS HAVE GIVEN YOU THE MOST TROUBLE AS FAR AS SCORING N WINNING AGAINST?
As far as scoring I think undarated makes it tough to score .. Gmen makes it hard to score as well and carver it's always a hard time, sometimes hard to score and when we're scoring, u scoring more lol
YOU HAVE PLAYED IN MANY LEAGUES, WHICH ONE WOULD U SAY IS THE BEST? N WHY?
I'm gonna have to say city island is the best league it fell off last season but this season is back.. For The fact that every week it's a must win game
WHAT TEAM OR TEAMS DO U LOVE TO WIN AGAINST? N WHY?
I always enjoy Beating gmen just cause they don't respect us.. Cause we don't have all stars or players everybody knows.. And I like to win vs carver and undarated cause it makes us more confident

BESIDES BOMBSQUAD WHAT TEAMS DO YOU THINK WILL B IN THE CHIP IN CITY ISLAND AND 128TH?
In city island its tough to say now Sugarhill has a good team carver and undarated packers as well can't call it .. 128st I think it will be carver u always find a way to get there.
WHY DO U THINK PEOPLE DON'T GIVE U THE RESPECT FOR BEING A GOOD QUARTERBACK?
I wouldn't even know , but as long as my team continues to believe in me thats all I care about.
DO YOU THINK WINNING A CHIP IN CITY ISLAND OR 128TH WOULD QUIET THE CRITICS?
No way, u got about a million chips and I'm sure u got critics as well so that won't shut them up.
