Posted on 11/06/2017 8:10:11 PM PST by GuavaCheesePuff
I have a couple of serious questions about the future of American football and the National Football League:
What can save the NFL?
How long does the NFL have in terms of popularity and support?
How did social activism creep into the NFL so aggressively? I don't have a problem with it, I am just perplexed how it is damaging the League?
You should call Rush’s show and ask him these questions. He’s been thinking about this for a long time.
These pampered, infantile thinking snots overstepped their importance and proceeded to insult the very core of American existence.
Americans can forgive a lot of things, but not this.
It needs to go the way of the Dodo.
You dont have a problem with multimillionaire SJWs politicizing the NFL, and disrespecting our nation?
Why are you here?
The NFL hates America.
Not a damn thing. The only question is what is the next thing we are going to flex our collective muscles and kill?
Nothing will save the NFL
Why not? It is a direct attack on US society, not a clamor for actual justice or a petition (to) the government for a redress of grievances as the First Amendment renders it. You should indeed have a problem with it, given what it stands for and calls for.
How did social activism creep into the NFL so aggressively? I don't have a problem with it
Infiltrate and gain control of big business.More broadly, it also involves the other goals of infiltrating education and government, not to mention religious institutions. The goal is to indoctrinate people into desiring the abolition of family, religion, private property and national borders, and whatever else the left wants.

Answered my own question, thanks.
I believe the NFL has damaged themselves in the same way. If they recover it will take years.
1) Asking what can save the NFL is like asking what can save JC Penny’s? Maybe its simply an idea who had a good run, but now times have changed. Their own destruction was due to management whose ideas were frozen in amber.
2) It will limp on for a while yet while it comes to grips with the idea that is royally screwed up.
3) Parasites seem to eventually infect every large social enterprise. Unions sucked off General Motors until it killed them (and were resurrected by government money), and they couldn’t change their thinking either, taking their host down with them.
I do, but they could speak, they should have done it at their own pleasure.
On a TV show or something. I don’t know why Goodell allowed this to go out of control.
It’s too late for me. I already know how they feel and how they act at this point doesn’t change that.
Not even Brady, Brees or Rodgers? Wow.
I am disappointed in the NFL, but I don’t know if they could last long. We’ll see.
I actually cut my cable three years ago but I used to look forward to going to Buffalo Wild Wings (or some other sports bar) to see a game on Sundays. Usually I'd try to see the New England Patriots or New York Jets (they remind me of how the Patriots used to be). Now I don't even bother doing that.
It does seem strange that the disrespect of the national anthem would cause me to not even want to see the actual game but that is what happened. I am not alone. I believe the NFL made a very grave error not clamping down on this from the very beginning. I was in the Marine Corps and I cannot tolerate anybody disrespecting the country or flag.
Also, another force is at work here. Younger people tend not to be football fans. NFL football is a sport for the older people. My own kids had absolutely no interest in football whatsoever even though I always had it on in my house when they were growing up. They were more into their chat rooms and other internet related activities. This was back in the 1990s and early 2000s. Now they are grown up and they probably couldn't name more than three NFL teams.
So I think the NFL has had their glory days and they will be slowly fading away. The disrespect of the anthem is only accelerating that decline.
I think the upcoming Super Bowl could be the final Super Bowl.
1. Read the book SJWs Always Lie. Talked about how SJWs takenover organizations. Being located in NYC is a big problem. Liberal infested.
2. Rush made a great point. He said the introduction of breast cancer as a cause, however noble, got the NFl into causes. Then the question becomes which causes.
3. I have made the point on these boards that the Missouri football team two years ago showed leftists how they can kill football. Leftists have always hated football. Manly, patriotic fly overs, winners and losers, cheerleaders. Leftists are mostly fat losers who couldnt get fates in high school. They hate football and have tried to kill it for years.
Mizzou showed the weak link - the players!
In that situation the head of the university was fired when the BLM and other SJW types told them not to be Uncle toms. They threatened to strike and the university caved. Fired the university head and then money dried up. Seven dorms have closed as parents sent their kids elsewhere. Doesnt matter. SJWs dont care if they kill the host. Once they infect an organization its impossible to excise them.
Now the NFL. Leftists and their controlled MSM praises the kneel era as a modern day MLK. Kaepernick was widely praised and others followed. NFL didnt want to be called racist. You have a 75% black sport with white owners and mostly white fans in the stands.
So the NFL did nothing and hoped itd go away.
Trump - a political genius - knew it ticked off his white working class voters and overpaid athletes were easy targets. NFL players stupidly doubled down and Trump has won. Empty stands. Lower ratings. NFL is on the way to being a niche sport like hockey.
Look for another university strike to begin the rot of college football.
Owned should have looked to the 1980s players strike. Scab» players were brought in and the players caved. They have no leverage and are easily replaced.
NFL is hoping the players wake up and see theyre killing the goose laying the golden eggs (white fans). It wont happen.
The his will take the owners saying stand or dont play and the League ignoring the SJW those who hate football anyway.
