‘If Only 1 Side is Posting Things to Social Media, Let’s Remember There Could Be Another Side’

A recent discussion about Kobe Bryant on Twitter sparked an interesting debate. Some people think it is important to always be on the same side as a subject, while others believe that if you have different opinions from someone who has been in their industry for so long, they may know something more than your average person with little experience.

The debate over the NFL’s decision to allow players to protest during the national anthem has been ongoing since President Trump made his comments. Many people have spoken out against what they view as a regressive step, and there was even an online petition with nearly 1 million signatures urging for change. However, discussions of this issue often overlook how it will affect those who support Mr. Trump and his policies on social media or simply don’t care about the protests themselves.,The NFL is not the only league that has seen a major controversy this year. The NBA, MLB, and even FIFA have all had their fair share of controversies in 2018.

“Hey, mary kay” is a phrase that is commonly used on social media. The saying means “if only one side is posting things to social media, let’s remember there could be another side.”.

Last week, Odell Beckham Jr., the soon-to-be-former Cleveland Browns wide receiver, mounted a scorched-earth campaign in an attempt to get out of Ohio. While the play was successful, it insulted a number of individuals, most notably Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield.

The fourth-year quarterback wasn’t going down without a fight. After it was suggested that Mayfield wasn’t a good enough quarterback to hit Beckham when he was wide open, the former Oklahoma Sooners’ camp responded with a blistering article from NFL Network reporter Aditi Kinkhabwala. 

Beckham was out in Cleveland a few hours later. 

Odell Beckham Jr.’s saga began with a video released by his father, Odell Beckham Sr. 

Odell Beckham Jr. was having a hard time in Cleveland, catching only 17 passes on 34 targets for 232 yards and zero touchdowns after six games in 2021. 

On the field, Week 8 seemed to have been the last straw. Beckham got one six-yard grab on one target. The last straw came when Odell Beckham Sr., Beckham’s father, tweeted an 11-minute video of Cleveland Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield missing his wide-open son. 

The video, which was placed to a loop of R.E.M’s Everybody Hurts, sparked a nationwide discussion over whether the former great wideout’s lack of productivity was due to his own fault or his quarterback’s failure. 

It was humiliating for both the corporation and the franchisee. The situation with Beckham Jr. was clearly untenable. The Browns were widely anticipated to move the pass-catcher before the trade deadline. 

But November 2nd came and went, and Beckham Jr. remained a Brown. 

The squad “excused” him from practice for the following several days while they figured out what to do with the clearly disgruntled athlete. Meanwhile, Browns players, including Mayfield, seemed to be impartial or even supportive of OBJ in public. However, in the shape of a story from NFL Network reporter Aditi Kinkhabwala, an aggressive shot from the quarterback’s camp was ultimately fired. 

Aditi Kinkhabwala of NFL Network provided a comment from Baker Mayfield.

Aditi Kinkhabwala provided a damning report on November 4 that she said came from “several persons” in the Browns’ building. No sources were mentioned by the reporter. Her information, on the other hand, was plainly pro-Baker Mayfield. 

Kinkhabwala began by remarking, “It’s not that difficult.” Odell Beckham Jr. would pick up the phone and contact his quarterback if he really wanted to be here.”

She further claims that if Beckham was genuine about remaining in Cleveland, he would have requested his father to remove the video and urge NBA superstar LeBron James to “back off and let him fight his own battle” when James tweeted support for the dissatisfied athlete. 

Kinkhabwala concluded her report with several specific criticisms of Beckham:

This I can guarantee you of. There’s no way of knowing if this is a Team Baker or a Team Odell situation. There isn’t a single person I’ve spoken to who questions Baker Mayfield’s ability to lead this team. This may be a great time for the squad to rally and circle the wagons. And there’s one more thing I’d like to mention. The Browns’ offense is based on time and rhythm. Baker Mayfield throws at a certain area at a specific moment, according to this definition. Just because a receiver seems to be wide open on the field doesn’t mean that’s where he’s intended to be at the moment he’s supposed to be there. There are always two sides to every issue, and if just one side is using social media, keep in mind that there might be another.

We’ll never know whether Mayfield sent these damaging communications himself or via a member of “Team Baker.” In any case, it’s clear that it was the shot across Mayfield’s bow that a pro-Mayfield individual or persons intended to fire. 

As of next week, Beckham will no longer be a Cleveland Brown.

Odell Beckham Jr. was placed on waivers by the Browns less than 24 hours after the story aired on Thursday afternoon. This would signal the start of his dismissal from the team. 

Beckham Jr. and the organization worked out a deal that keeps him in Cleveland while saving the team money. The pact stipulates that the Browns would place Beckham Jr. on waivers on Monday, according to a series of tweets from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport on Saturday. 

If a club claims the pass-catcher, they will be liable for the balance of his $7.25 million contract for 2021. Normally, if a player is released and no club claims him on waivers, the releasing team pays his salary. 

The two sides agreed to pay just $4.25 million if Beckham Jr. clears waivers, which he is expected to do at that amount. The Browns will save $3 million as a result of this, and Beckham will be able to play football again this season. 

This is as close to a win-win scenario as Beckham Jr. and the Browns could hope for in this circumstance, and you have to believe Baker Mayfield is pleased with the outcome as well. 

Keep an eye on where Beckham Jr. ends up next and whether or not he faces Mayfield and the Browns in 2021.
