To get Niner fans pumped up for the Seahawks versus 49ers game – as if that was needed – San Francisco radio station 95.7 The Game released a parody song about Peter Carroll and his team. If you have not heard the song, it is a must for the 49ers Faithful because of how hilarious and true the lyrics are in the song. You can listen to the song at the bottom of this post.
Niner fans can thank Whitey Gleason for his parody song called Peter Carroll Whines that is a riff off of Neil Diamond’s classic, Sweet Caroline.
In case you don’t know, the Seahawks have had two players suspended this season – Walther Thurmond (four games) and Brandon Browner (full season) – for substance abuse violations. And don’t forget, Seattle’s defensive lineman Bruce Irvin was suspended for the first four games of the season because of testing positive for performance-enhancing drugs. Since Carroll joined the Seahawks, he has a running tally of six players being suspended for substance abuse violations. Richard Sherman was suspended last season, but won his appeal. Browner was also suspended last season, so technically Seattle has had eight instances of players get popped.
With all of the recent suspensions for substance abuse violations by the Seahawks, I wouldn’t be surprised if news came out that BALCO recently opened up a new business in the Seattle area. It seems as if Pete Carroll is oblivious when it comes to violations by his players or he just doesn’t care and lets his players do whatever they want. But come on, how can you have so many suspensions and not know that is going on in the locker-room? Carroll is known as a player’s coach with the Seahawks and when he coached in college at USC. But you have to have discipline for your players. All you can do is shake your head and wonder why…and this is coming from a Niners fan!
The parody song is interspersed with commentary and news reports on the history of Carroll and Harbaugh, and all of the recent suspensions by Seahawk players. Here are some of my favorite lines from Peter Carroll Whines:
Losing more players as the playoffs near/Who is it now?/Thurmond and Brandon Browner/That makes six pops in just three years/Hands, shaking hands, shouting out/What’s your deal? What’s your deal?…
The best line of the song is the chorus:
Pete Carroll Whines/Adderall makes his team good.
