Between the concussions/CTE, political correctness, and plain ineptitude by Roger Goodell, the National Football League is going to die.
It won’t happen tomorrow, and its death throes will be violent and tumultuous. Like a monarch who has reigned too long without the fear of man or God, the NFL doesn’t believe it can die. It will deny and fight the truth until the bitter end. But its end nevertheless will come.
Let’s look at the facts.
1. The league is run by an idiot. Roger Goodell took the league that Pete Rozelle and Paul Tagliabue built into America’s pastime and turned it into a Pharisaic corporation that denies obvious truths, such as its black players’ insistence on beating their women, believes in singling out its top white performers (the Saints coaching staff in 2012‘s Bountygate and Tom Brady in 2015’s Deflategate), denies and dissembles the linkage between football and brain damage, and doubles down on the disgusting worship of black thugs at the expense of most Americans.
This money-driven, politically-correct incompetence has cost Goodell and the NFL dearly in the past decade. Perhaps a better commissioner could find his way out of this situation, but Goodell hasn’t. And then there’s…
2. The mounting evidence that repeated blows to the head causes debilitating mental, emotional, and physical problems later in life. This is the nail in the coffin of football as it has existed to this day. There is simply no way around the fact that football is a hard-hitting sport. No measure of protective equipment can stop that. And if they did add more equipment, or restrict hitting more than they already have, the NFL would lose much of its fan appeal. The league prided itself on big hits for decades. It’s what made the NFL (and football in general) the modern-day gladiator’s sport.
But no more. What white soccer mom is going to put her sons in an activity which she knows will result in them suffering memory loss, depression, impaired walking and tremors, emotional instability, or worse? It was one thing for football parents to fear that their child would be the one-in-a-million victim of paralysis or death. All football players must sign a waiver forgoing litigation in such an event before they can sign up to play in a league. That’s scary stuff for a parent to think about, but such injuries rarely happen.
However, chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE) is not a one-in-a-million injury. Research shows that 21% of high school, 91% of college, and 99% of pro football players will suffer from the condition. Pop Warner football — yeah, that’s the league for little kids — has already settled a $2 million lawsuit with the mother of a 25-year old former player who killed himself. The Chicago Tribune recently reported that where there used to be 12 teams, there are now four, and that some Chicagoland districts can’t attract enough players to compose a single team. It’s not just the moms who are worried. It’s the dads too.
“It certainly doesn’t help that concussion is on a lot of moms’ minds,” said Adam Campbell, who runs Chicago’s Canaryville Lions program. “And I’m hearing it from dads who are saying, ‘I played but I don’t want my kids to play.'”
Not surprising when even NFL Hall of Famers like Brett Favre won’t encourage their grandsons to play contact football until they’re at least teenagers, if at all.
Despite settling a nearly $1 billion class action lawsuit with former players just a few years ago, the NFL is again in the legal crosshairs of the family of a deceased player due to its role in facilitating the CTE-inducing activity of bashing his head in on a daily basis. It’s just a matter of math and economics. The NFL, and contact football, will simply be driven to the point where Big Tobacco is today, or worse. Bankrupt.
3. If ineptitude and massive numbers of safety-minded parents weren’t enough to deprive football’s biggest league of a financially viable future, the alienation of one third or more of its audience will.
For years the league has coddled the black hooligans who fill a disproportionate amount of the NFL’s team rosters. For years it has forced the teams to interview and hire coaches based on their status as melanin-enhanced, non-white homo sapiens. For years it has turned a blind eye to the criminal behavior of these affletes and “coaches.” But during our current era of 1960s-like civil unrest, pitting black criminals against mostly-white police forces, the NFL chose to coddle one incredibly ungrateful black adoptee from an evangelical, white family: Colin Kaepernick. Instead of cracking down on his self-righteous protest of white men who protect all the members of their communities from violent black criminals, the NFL chose to bless him and enable his black liberation rhetoric to spread like a contagion across black members of the league, trickling all the way down to teams of black 8-year olds.
It’s one thing to dumb down the game, populate it with thugs, or make it into a purely commercial venture. Most people don’t like that, but will continue to watch the games, buy the gear, and pay for tickets and TV packages. But for all their ability to take abuse and heap guilt upon themselves, all but the most hardened cuckservative and normie liberals still have limits beyond which they cannot go. For better or worse, cuckservatives and liberals alike have long shared a respect for civic nationalism’s symbols: the Constitution, the Bill of Rights, and the U.S. flag. True anti-white, anti-Christian leftists have been working overtime for years to erode public faith in these symbols as well as other symbols such as the Pledge of Allegiance. Today’s anti-white, anti-historical hysteria is largely based on this left-wing agenda. But the masses have not been uniformly moved over to this belief. They may in time regard the U.S. flag as the symbol of evil that they think the Confederate battle flag was and is. But that has not happened yet.
For that reason, the NFL’s coddling of Kaepernick and his cause — which takes the form of kneeling or otherwise disrespecting the U.S. flag during the playing of the national anthem before each NFL game — is an incredibly bad public relations move. As the 2017 season got underway recently, the protests spread.
When on Sept. 23 President Donald Trump called on NFL team owners to fire or suspend players who did not stand for the national anthem, the NFL responded uniformly with the most egotistical statement possible: that the leader of the free world was not showing adequate respect for…football players.
Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities.
The league continued to double down the following Sunday, when its Sept. 24 games were headlined by whole teams kneeling, standing arm in arm, or staying in their locker rooms as a show of unity and solidarity with the protesting blacks, and against Trump. Even the Dallas Cowboys and big man Jerry Jones cucked on Monday Night Football Sept. 25. So much for not messing with Texas.
This mistake by the NFL was even bigger than the one before it. Baby Boomer and Gen X fans were ticked about Kaepernick, but he was just one guy. They could ignore him and watch the game. Whole teams, on the other hand, are impossible to ignore. The team owners, NFL Network, all other sports news networks, and NFL commissioner are impossible to ignore. Whereas Goodell and his anti-white buddies in the league and press think that their strategy will somehow teach Trump a lesson, they are playing right into Trump’s hands.
Respect the NFL? How about the NFL respect the flag and nation, he argued. You can’t top that. It’s like “I’m With Her” versus “Make America Great Again,” all over again. The group wins out over the individual in most cases. In this case, the individuals in question make more money in one year than most of us make in our entire working lives. These individuals have more power, money, fame, access, and influence than any of us ever will. These individuals are members of two of the most privileged and protected groups within our borders: blacks, and professional athletes. That’s precisely why they think they can take on the president of the United States.
As usual, Trump is acting as our proxy. That’s why he’s the anti-white team’s punching bag. They are punching him because they’re angry at us, the racially-conscious white middle Americans whom they perceive to be their real enemy. As black musician Pharrell Williams put it at recently,
They keep talking about a wall, but the enemy is this divisive mentality. It’s on this side of the wall guys and girl, it’s already here, okay? The white nationalists are walking towards your future. What you gonna do?
The tone-deaf NFL commissioner and his ilk will only continue to double down on their protest of Trump, and their coddling of the black players will only further incite blacks in every industry to protest Trump, the U.S. flag, the Confederacy, and the white masses of America. This will further polarize the nation, and force previously-drunken white fans to take their own side, or hand over their remotes and couches to their wives’ black bulls. I expect millions to do the former.
Since the NFL’s argument is predicated on the black players’ right to free speech, it would be reasonable to expect some white NFL players to stand up for the flag and for the nation as their own form of free speech. However, they are too cucked and beholden to the black athletes to be any good.
Even white Hispanic Alejandro Villanueva, who graduated from West Point and served three tours of duty in Afghanistan, winning a Bronze Star for valor, has cucked on his inadvertent display of pro-American, pro-Trump behavior Sept. 24. While the cuckservative world rejoiced to see the veteran standing respectfully for the white man’s national anthem when the rest of his team remained in the locker room, apparently his act of patriotism was all a misunderstanding.
In a news conference on Monday, Villanueva said it was never part of the plan to be out on the field alone and that he accidentally ran too far, according to CBS Pittsburgh….“Unfortunately I threw my teammates under the bus, unintentionally,” Villanueva said. “Every single time I see that picture of me standing by myself I feel embarrassed.”
“People that are taking a knee are not saying anything negative about the military, they’re not saying anything negative about the flag, they’re just trying to protest that there are some injustices in America,” Villanueva said.
Uh, correction Alejandro. They’re saying that all white cops are evil and don’t deserve to protect themselves when dealing with suspicious black men. The fact is that black men are disproportionately violent and cops deserve to take extra level of precaution when dealing with them.
It’s so disgusting to see white multimillionaires like Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Jerry Jones, Ben Roethlisberger, and Villanueva take the side of their black thug teammates and the criminals for whom they advocate, rather than the country and people who make their incredibly privileged lives possible.
The white masses will walk away from this game, and this league. The league may continue, but it will be a shell of itself. It will be the home of brain-damaged athletes, Afrocentric black power narratives, and out-of-touch millionaires hiding behind their lawyers.
The NFL is stuck in the late twentieth century, when it stood astride the entertainment world thinking it was an immortal colossus. It was just the right product for the right market at the right time. The market has changed. The times have changed. Now the NFL will die, and we will move on into the twenty-first century without its yoke on our necks.
