RE: The NFL is dying
A group of NFL players sent a letter to the league asking for an entire month dedicated to "social activism":

http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/20772...d-activism

Quote:A group of four players sent the NFL a memo in August requesting league support and asking for a month to be dedicated to social activism, not long after commissioner Roger Goodell reportedly had talked to several players regarding their game-day activism efforts.

According to Yahoo! Sports, defensive end Michael Bennett of the Seattle Seahawks, Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins and receiver Torrey Smith, and former Arizona Cardinals wideout Anquan Boldin co-authored the 2,740-word document intended to push the NFL into efforts "similarly to what the league already implements for breast cancer awareness, honoring military, etc."

Yes, how about all NFL players donate a month's salary to social activism.

I can get behind that.

RE: The NFL is dying
A football team of 8-year-olds knelt for the anthem in response to St. Louis protests
via CBS Sports

Quote:There is a group of kids in In Cahokia, Illinois who are following the lead of Colin Kaepernick. A team of 8-year-old football players have decided to take a knee during the national anthem, copying Kaepernick's form of protest that he started in 2016

Like every other part of the liberal SJW cancer, it eventually trickles down to our children.

Quote:The team decided to take a stand after a conversation with their coach, Orlando Gooden. According to Gooden, the team came up with the idea on their own, and the Belleville News-Democrat reports that their parents supported the decision.

Yes, I'm sure these 8 year olds came up with this entirely on their own. It's not like liberals like to use kids as political props to push their SJW garbage.

Quote:I felt it was a teaching opportunity. As a coach and adult, it's your role to protect those that are weaker and to enlighten them when you can."

Thank God we have liberals here to "enlighten" our children.

All that needs to be done is to stop WATCHING this garbage.

You don't need to be " red pill " to see that NFL is social engineering.

Just go outside with some neighbors and kids and pick up a football, or pick a new sport to watch IN PERSON that isn't perverted yet.

Debating the intentionally created "controversy" won't do shit, but not watching will eventually starve the beast.

The Chinese love of basketball always makes me curious. Do they play with much lower nets? Whats the average height of their top level teams?

I've been to Beijing and Shanghai and there was almost nobody over 6ft0 there. Yao Ming aside, I can't imagine they've many reasonably sized players to choose from.

Like most acts of commercial social justice, this cancer is easy to counter.

All you have to do is not give them your time and money. It worked for Ghostbusters and it will work here. Joe Sixpack is sick of this garbage too and will eventually switch to other sports. NFL heads will either see the winds changing and purge this crap or they will go the way of the dodo.

RE: The NFL is dying
Today there was an Amazon Washington Post story on Kaepernick.

Basically, the sportswriter laments that the media and SJW campaign to bully and shame the NFL into employing Kaepernick this season hasn't worked. WaPo is usually very aggressive at shadow-banning commentators who don't toe the party line, so I was surprised by the tone of the most up-voted comments. Here are some of the best:

Quote:The perfect solution is for Kaepernick to play in Canada, they don't play the Star-Spangled Banner there.

Quote:"Kaepernick’s past performance has proven he’s good enough to be in the league"....WRONG!!! His past performance proves he WAS good enough to be in the league! He was benched for LACK OF TALENT long before he started his lunatic protest! And you sniveling snowflake "writers'' are desperate for another black supremacist to carry your torch for you. Also it looks like the Michael Bennett story fell completely apart rather quickly once you found out there are dozens of cameras that show Bennett acting in a way that "baited" the LVPD into detaining him : (

Quote:"fans will start to realize Kaepernick is not returning and have to grapple with what his sustained absence means."

Seriously? LOL

Quote:Generally, people who love sports and football also love our country and are tired to over paid thugs whining about everything.
It's time the owners show some backbone and keep CK out of football. The owners should have conversations with the players on their teams who are also protesting.
Either they show respect for the flag and their country, or they are gone. Doesn't matter how good you are. This is a spectator sport and if the spectators are not happy, revenue goes down and there is trouble at the box-office window.
We should all keep in mind that football and all sports are little more than a diversion from the things in life that get us down. We don't need whining, ungrateful thugs bringing the game down. Kick them out.
Finally, I'm tired of the sport writers who won't give this up.
Get a life boys and girls!

Quote:It's only ill educated SJW sports writers who are upset this jerk QB is out of the league. 90% of fans are very satisfied. NFL owners aren't spineless, just attuned to their fans who pay the bills.

I smile every day I read he can't get an NFL job.

Quote:It’s starting to look like Colin Kaepernick won’t play in the NFL again. What happens next?

What happens next? You ridiculous social justice warriors will cry moan and howl... haven't you been paying attention?

Take your phony indignation and shove it!

Quote:Most NFL clubs and their fans have moved on past Colin Kaepernick, yet the journalist-led martyrdom cult continues...don't be surprised if Sports Illustrated names him their 'Sportsman of the Year'.

Quote:""""The hive-minded cowardice of NFL ownership and management has kept Kaepernick a free agent for this long."""

The hive of liberal reporters celebrates players who insult white fans, disrespect the American flag and anthem, wear hateful Pig Socks, and praise the evil dictator Castro in front of a Miami crowd.

Quote:Let's see, are NFL owners going to care more that:

(a) Revenues went from 8 to 13 billion in the last 6 years under Goodell; or

(b) A Sociology professor at Cal disagrees with Goodell.

Oooo, what a toughie!

Quote:Think of the billions of dollars that the NFL spent marketing the message that watching football is patriotic. They make a sustained effort to support the military and veterans groups to create the image that NFL is heroic supporter of America. All of that goodwill was undone by a moron who didn't have the brainpower to understand the damage that he would do to his employer. Kaepernick is an embarrassment to the NFL and they will want this scandal to fade from memory as quickly as possible. It is likely that he will never work for the NFL again.

RE: The NFL is dying
Pro athletes live in a bigger bubble than even most SJWs their whole lives due to the status they've enjoyed since middle school - high school - college due to everyone treating them like gods for their sportsball ability.

Teachers treated them different, parents treated them different, girls treat them different and that's all they know. That's why they crash so hard when their career is over, they can't imagine the world any differently than everyone kissing their ass. They never had to think deeply about anything.

And unlike other SJW's they actually did earn their status, so they really feel they're authorities in society.

RE: The NFL is dying
Axios has a very interesting story on how televised sports is facing a huge correction.

https://www.axios.com/sports-are-becomin...13761.html

"The cost of distribution rights for every major televised sport in the United States is more than the ad revenue TV channels get from airing those sports, according to Magna's latest Media Sports Report.

Why it matters: We are quickly approaching a tipping point in which traditional TV providers will no longer be able to justify the cost of carrying sports."

As I said, I really believe the MLB will get dropped nationally by espn come 2021 and they'll look to go OTT. However as lee hendry recently said, going OTT is going to mean you have to fully earn your dollars and can't be subsidized by non-watchers through the cable bundle.

I like baseball but they need to find a way to speed it up drastically. These 4-8 hour games I don't have time for, I've watched a few (5 maybe) with my dad this year just because we enjoy watching games but you would have to pay me to watch 162 4-6 hour games.

Also as a Patriots fan I've hated Goodell for years but if he cucks to these 4 egos on "social justice month" he will look like a complete schmuck and I believe the owners will fire him.

Nah, screw that. Do away with the video review, and force batters to stay in the box. No more dancing around after every pitch.

And every White Sox fan will tell you about how fast games were when Mark Buehrle was on the bump. Need to force pitchers to stop pussy footing around too.

That’ll shave an hour or so off each game

Not a bad idea, make it a riff off the old breast cancer awareness campaign. Have these brave voluteers wear full pink uniforms (not just that ribbon stuff) with notice that they'll have the whole team do it if it catches on. They might also draw a pink bullseye on their backs...but that probably won't be necessary Smile

Have them run out on the field in skirts and high heels to show their support for trans-issues...the possibilities are endless.

It’s Shocking How Empty The Stadium Was For Thursday Night Football




Quote:This is not a great look for the NFL. TV ratings are already on the decline, and now people aren’t even going to the games.

The NFL is the crown jewel of American sports. It can’t be overstated how awful the optics of an empty stadium for a primetime game is.

NFL management needs to isolate the problem and fix it before things continue to spiral downward.

A low turnout in San Francisco - bastion of left-wing lunacy - is a bad sign for the NFL. Perhaps if they brought Colin Kaepercuck back and he moonwalked atop an American flag, the fans would fill the seats.

Quote:Ratings: NFLN pulled a 6.1 overnight rating for Rams-49ers. There's no easy comp, but it is up 20% over NFLN's total average last season.

Colin Cowherd's take:



I don't agree with Cowherd on everything but he's right on this. Put an exciting team (high scoring passing offence) on the field and people will watch. Nobody wants to go to a game to watch their team get blown out or struggle to score 10 points. The obvious difference with TV is that a viewer might tune in to the game halfway through if they check the score and see it's an exciting one like last nights game.

The attendance issue is being overstated because posters are cherry picking from the 3 bottom franchises: the two LA teams and the 49ers.

The 49ers stadium cost as much as the Cowboys. How is that possible?

Levi stadium looks like it was designed in the 1940s - no retractable roof, no massive replay boards - but they do teach a class on "environmental sustainability".

On some of the games I watched this weekend, they cut the anthem and filled it with talking heads in the studio and only went back to the field when all of the SJW crap was over.

Probably because of the costs of land in California vs. Texas.

RE: The NFL is dying
The moves aren't working out so well...

Quote:Could the NFL really send the Chargers back to San Diego? It's something being discussed, according to longtime NFL reporter Don Banks.

The Chargers failed to sell out their temporary home, the 27,000-seat StubHub Center, in their home opener last Sunday. Banks wrote at The Athletic the NFL is shocked by how quickly things have gone south for the Chargers in L.A. As the Rams struggle to draw fans to the L.A. Coliseum, Banks said the NFL does not want the bad "optics" of empty stadiums for three years before the Rams and Chargers are scheduled to move into a new Inglewood stadium in 2020.

It's not just a lack of interest in football - USC has no problem selling out.
