RIP NFL: August 20th 1920 – October 18th 2017

When a business entity forms the largest and most important decision they make is who will lead the organization.  That decision, beyond all other decisions, has the potential to destroy the business and long-term brand image of the entity.

The National Football League has destroyed itself.  In a free-market system customers have the ability to turn away from any product or service against their interests.

Announced during a post-meeting press conference today, the N.F.L has decided not to enforce it’s own rules on player conduct.  Instead the league will continue to let players kneel or sit during the national anthem without a penalty, capitulating to demands by the athletes for free expression but potentially further alienating fans who object to the protests and feel those expressions are disrespectful to the flag and the military.

Conversely, after the meeting with union representatives and players, the social justice league promised to support causes targeted by the protesting players, including reform of the criminal justice system and continued disparagement toward law enforcement officers.

    The N.P. L., (National Political League) formerly the NFL, can continue as they please. We won’t be watching because we will be watching FOOTBALL being played by professional football teams in our NEW LEAGUE made up of players who want to play FOOTBALL.
    FOOTBALL Fun will return to America! Yay!

    I didn’t think it was possible but Goodell has beaten Bettman from NHL as the worse commissioner in sports. But when even the NBA has more brains than you on this and they have way more blacks than the NFL, you know you are brain dead. But having the most communist league based on how it is structured explains this

    In NJ, we had to pay for the Meadowlands stadium twice. Of course, they needed a better one. The 2 NFL teams called themselves the “New York” Giants and the “New York” Jets. The taxpayers of NJ support them and when they win the superbowl (Giants not Jets), their parade is in NYC. I got sick of being stupid and moved to Maine. At least our NFL team, which is in Boston, is called “New England.”

    The players are on work time. Before I retired, we were told we couldn’t do anything political on work time or there would be consequences. What is wrong with these owners? They deserve bad ratings and the possible demise of the NFL. I wonder how popular the Super bowl will be this year.

      For Sunday, November 12th, Veterans Day Weekend.

      You graduated high school in 2011. Your teenage years were a struggle. You grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. Your mother was the leader of the family and worked tirelessly to keep a roof over your head and food on your plate.

      Academics were a struggle for you and your grades were mediocre at best. The only thing that made you stand out is you weighed 225 lbs and could run 40 yards in 4.2 seconds while carrying a football.
      Your best friend was just like you, except he didn’t play football. Instead of going to football practice after school, he went to work at McDonalds for minimum wage.

      You were recruited by all the big colleges and spent every weekend of your senior year making visits to universities where coaches and boosters tried to convince you their school was best. They laid out the red carpet for you.

      Your best friend worked double shifts at Mickey D’s. College was not an option for him. On the day you signed with Big State University, your best friend signed paperwork with his Army recruiter. You went to summer workouts. He went to basic training.

      You spent the next four years living in the athletic dorm, eating at the training table. You spent your Saturdays on the football field, cheered on by adoring fans. Tutors attended to your every academic need. You attended class when you felt like it. Sure, you worked hard. You lifted weights, ran sprints, studied plays, and soon became one of the top football players in the country.

      Your best friend was assigned to the 101 st Airborne Division. While you were in college, he deployed to Iraq once and Afghanistan twice. He became a Sergeant and led a squad of 19 year old soldiers who grew up just like he did. He shed his blood in Afghanistan and watched young American’s give their lives, limbs, and innocence for the USA.

      You went to the NFL combine and scored off the charts. You hired an agent and waited for draft day. You were drafted in the first round and your agent immediately went to work, ensuring that you received the most money possible.. You signed for $16 million although you had never played a single down of professional football.

      Your best friend re-enlisted in the Army for four more years. As a combat tested sergeant, he will be paid $32,000 per year.

      You will drive a Ferrari on the streets of South Beach. He will ride in the back of a Blackhawk helicopter with 10 other combat loaded soldiers. You will sleep at the Ritz. He will dig a hole in the ground and try to sleep. You will “make it rain” in the club. He will pray for rain as the temperature reaches 120 degrees.

      On Sunday, you will run into a stadium as tens of thousands of fans cheer and yell your name..
      For your best friend, there is little difference between Sunday and any other day of the week. There are no adoring fans. There are only people trying to kill him and his soldiers. Every now and then, he and his soldiers leave the front lines and “go to the rear” to rest. He might be lucky enough to catch an NFL game on TV.

      When the National Anthem plays and you take a knee, he will jump to his feet and salute the television. While you protest the unfairness of life in the United States, he will give thanks to God that he has the honor of defending his great country.

      To the players of the NFL: We are the people who buy your tickets, watch you on TV, and wear your jerseys. We eagerly wait for Sundays so we can cheer for you and marvel at your athleticism. Although we love to watch you play, we care little about your opinions until you offend us.

      You have the absolute right to express yourselves, but we have the absolute right to boycott you. We have tolerated your drug use and DUIs, your domestic violence, and your vulgar displays of wealth. We should be ashamed for putting our admiration of your physical skills before what is morally right. But now you have gone too far. You have insulted our flag, our country, our soldiers, our police officers, and our veterans. You are living the American dream, yet you disparage our great country.

      I am done with NFL football and encourage all like minded Americans to boycott the NFL as well.
      National boycott of the NFL for Sunday November 12th, Veterans Day Weekend. Boycott all football telecast, all fans, all ticket holders, stay away from attending any games, let them play to empty stadiums. Pass this post along to all your friends and family. (If you haven’t already done so, please shut them off/out on that day.)

      Honor our military, some of whom come home with the American Flag draped over their coffin.

        I still don’t understand why Americans think these protests had anything to do with a smack down of our military. It is about black racism towards white people and a hate cop mentality because they consider an unfair number of blacks are ‘targeted’ by cops for criminal activity and wind up in prison. It is a smack down of whites who are the NFL’s largest fan base coupled with Marxist social justice CRAPOLA to cover their own anti-white bigotry. This narrative needs to be discussed in its real context not the spin that has been placed on it to cover the real agenda.

          “I still don’t understand why Americans think these protests had anything to do with a smack down of our military.”

          Yep, and while almost everyone is so busy setting up this straw man and knocking it down, no one is addressing the real problem. Which is, as you say, anti-white racism, and cop-hating. (Or as they say, police brutality, profiling, and racism.) It’s the same goal BLM has always had – to make black criminals immune from policing, immune from our laws, etc.

          The argument will never be solved by attacking straw men instead of the real argument.

          And it will continue because no one can even go a week without their precious football.

          No, they absolutely do not have any right to protest on the job unless their employers allow them to. You can’t protest the eating of meat with your vegan talking points while running the register at a McDonald’s.

          Their employers would put a stop to this kneeling real quick if they started going out of business because of it. But just keep on tuning in. If you’re not going to boycott, then quit complaining. You are getting what you paid for. Right now the employers are virtue signaling right along with the players. They’ll go whichever way they think means more money.

          I would join the boycott but I have never watched the crap anyhow. So I already boycott it by default.

    When you see these things, and see the MSM ranting against Trump and Russia’s Putin, you might wonder what the angst against Putin is about. Wonder no more – here’s what he says about the growing decadence of the West.

    “A further challenge for the Russian national identity is connected to the processes we observe outside of Russia. They include foreign policy, morals and other aspects. We see that many Euro-Atlantic States have taken the path of denying or rejecting their Christian roots which form the basis of Western civilisation. In these countries the basis of morals and of any traditional identity is being denied – national, religious, cultural and even gender identities are being denied or relativized. There, politics treat a family with many children as juridically equal to a homosexual partnership – faith in God is equal to faith in Satan. The excesses and exaggerations of “political correctness” in these countries lead to serious consideration for the legitimising of political parties that promote propaganda for paedophilia.

    The people in European States are actually ashamed of their religious affiliations and are even frightened to speak about them. Christian holidays and celebrations are abolished or given neutral names, as if one were ashamed of those Christian holidays. By this means the deeper moral value of these celebrations is hidden from view. And these countries try to force this model onto other countries. I am deeply convinced that to live this way will lead directly to culture being degraded and returned to a primitive condition. And this makes the demographic and moral crisis of the West still deeper. Today nearly all countries of the West cannot survive reproductively, not even with the inflow of population by immigration. What clearer proof of the moral crisis in the West could there be than this inability to reproduce itself?

    Without the moral values that are rooted in Christianity and other world religions, without rules and moral values that have been formed and developed over thousands of years, people inevitably lose their human dignity. As for ourselves we think it is right and natural to defend these moral values coming from Christianity. We must respect the right to self-determination of every minority, but by the same token there cannot and must not be any doubt about the rights of the majority.

    At the same time as we observe this decadence at the national level in the West, on the international level we observe the attempt to unify the world in accordance with a unipolar model, to relativize and remove institutions of international law and national sovereignty. In such a unipolar unified world there is no place for sovereign States, because such a world requires only vassals. From a historical perspective such a unipolar world would mean the surrender of one’s own identity and God-created diversity.”

    • well, Putin is very capable of making these observations. He’s ex-KGB and what we are suffering from in the West is a KGB operation. It’s called subversion, rotting the pillars of the society from within. He knows how to reverse the process too, because once a country is fully subverted and falls in the lap of the subverter, the useful idiots will have to be cleared out and the country re-stabilized into the new normal. Just look up Yuri Bezmenov lectures and interviews on YouTube to know what I’m talking about.

        Not knowing exactly what Putin thinks, I can only guess, and like my previous post, it’s about matters of principle rather than matters of fact. My understanding is that Western religion (Christian, Jewish, ….) spells out the principles, such as the 10 commandments, or even the Laws of Moses, that people should adhere to to keep their society healthy. I believe that what Putin is getting at is that Socialism and Atheism go hand in hand, and they destroy healthy societies.

    “Sometimes It’s A Bitch”

    Well, I’ve run through rainbows
    And castles of candy
    I’ve cried a river of tears
    From the pain

    I try to dance with
    What life has to hand me
    My partner’s been pleasure
    My partner’s been pain

    There are days
    When I swear I could
    Fly like an eagle
    And dark desperate hours
    That nobody sees

    My arms stretched triumphant
    On top of the mountain
    My head in my hands
    Down on my knees

    Sometimes it’s a bitch
    Sometimes it’s a breeze
    Sometimes love’s blind
    And sometimes it sees
    Sometimes it’s roses
    And sometimes it’s weeds
    Sometimes it’s a bitch
    Sometimes it’s a breeze

    I’ve reached in darkness
    And come out with treasure
    I’ve laid down with love
    And I woke up with lies

    What’s it all worth
    Only the heart can measure
    It’s not what’s in the mirror
    But what’s left inside

    Sometimes it’s a bitch
    Sometimes it’s a breeze
    Sometimes love’s blind
    And sometimes it sees
    Sometimes it’s roses
    And sometimes it’s weeds
    Sometimes it’s a bitch
    Sometimes it’s a breeze

    You gotta take it as it comes
    Sometimes it don’t come easy

    I’ve run through rainbows
    And castles of candy
    And I’ve cried a river of tears
    From the pain

    I tried to dance with
    What life had to hand me
    And if I could
    I’d do it all over again

    Sometimes it’s a bitch
    Sometimes it’s a breeze
    Sometimes love’s blind
    And sometimes it sees
    Sometimes it’s roses
    And sometimes it’s weeds
    Sometimes it’s a bitch
    Sometimes it’s a breeze

    Sometimes the picture
    Just ain’t what it seems
    You get what you want
    But it’s not what you need
    Sometimes it’s a bitch
    Sometimes it’s a breeze

    Well it’s a breeze
    It’s a breeze, it’s a breeze

    I’m actually GLAD that (for the most part) they’re trying to deny that these “protests” are against the flag, the country as a whole, the military, etc. Because the more they do that, the more the question becomes, “Well then, what ARE you protesting for/against?” And if anything, the answer to that is far MORE troubling than if they were simply protesting the flag. Because what they’re doing is showing solidarity with the likes of Black Lives Matter, Antifa, and SJWs in general… while at the same time showing opposition to police, and the “criminal justice system”, both of which (they claim) are inherently RACIST.

    Anyway, the reason I’m GLAD they’re making it clear what the main focus of their “protests” are, is that that will SCARE people in this country… which in turn will mobilize opposition. Oh sure, protesting against the flag will anger a lot of people… but protesting FOR the thugs in the streets, well that’s the same as saying they APPROVE of what’s been going on. In other words, these scumbags are THREATENING the rest of us, with civil war, a race war, total anarchy, or any number of other horrible scenarios.

    So if you, NFL and Mr. Goodell, think you’ve smoothed any feathers, you are DEAD WRONG.

        (((These people))) in the USA all have dual-citizenship to a genetically enforced ethnostate.

        Ask yourselves, why a certain country is allowed to control its immigration based on the results of genetic testing, while at the same time, people who are citizens of that country agitate the most against the USA — they promote open borders and replacement of the population of heritage Americans, like me and you.

        Nobody questions their dual citizenship, the double standard for their other home, or why they are so vocally anti-American and anti-White.

        Even asking why gets one a terrible label.
        As Voltaire once said “to know who rules over you, look to those you are not allowed to criticize”. And in some European countries even asking a question about an supposed event can land you in prison. Just for doubting.

        Ask yourselves if you think the truth needs to be protected by laws that mandate prison time for anyone who questions it?
