Just Let the NLRB Run the NFL

Recall that President Trump said, “Wouldn’t you love to see one of these NFL owners,” wondered the president, “when somebody disrespects our flag, to say, ‘Get that son of a b**** off the field right now, out. He’s fired. He’s fired!’”

I said that no owner would have the stones to stand up to political correctness like that. I thought they’d be too cowardly to do it, even though at least a few are probably thinking it.

Well, I was wrong and Trump was right. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones came out and said practically that. He said earlier this week if a player disrespects the flag and national anthem by not standing, then the player will not play.

And sure enough, fans loved it. Even I, a Jerry Jones hater, loved it. But the players and the Players Union were not quite as fond of the Cowboys owner’s exhortation.

“Local 100 of the United Labor Unions filed a complaint against the Dallas Cowboys on Tuesday, alleging owner and general manager Jerry Jones has violated the National Labor Relations Act by threatening players if they choose not to stand for the national anthem,” writes ESPN. read more

Video Podcast – Enough with NFL Social Justice

by: the Common Constitutionalist

At this point, NFL players, coaches, owners and executives deserve to be bashed by fans – including the President. You brought this on yourselves with your phony virtue signaling and hand-wringing.

America is the greatest country on Earth and this country and all your fans have afforded you the opportunity to play a GAME for a very good living. Now you want to bite off the hands that feed you and call it unity.

Well, we’re not buying what you’re selling. And it’s evident from the ratings and stock prices of the networks which broadcast your games. None of us go to games, or watch football to be preached at by the likes of you. Protest on your own time. When you hit the field, just shut up and play. read more

The NFL has Allowed a Lawless Precedent to be Set

The NFL social justice protest crap is completely phony. It’s the same virtue signaling we see from leftists all over the world. And at this point, the silly grade school stunt is solely being driven by peer-pressure.

If you’re black and don’t protest, you’re an Uncle Tom. You’re not down with the struggle. If you’re white and don’t participate, or at least sympathize with those who do – you’re a racist Trump supporter. These are the only two boxes available to be checked.

So what are these geniuses protesting anyway? Colin Kaepernick, the NFL originator, began kneeling to protest police brutality. Standing up to police brutality has been adopted and included in the list of demands of the 10 page extortion memo drafted by four players to the league.

May I ask where these players have been? Is police brutality a new thing ushered in over the last few years? No it is not. It’s no bigger a problem than it ever was.

And how do I know this? I know this because if it were, leftist news sites like CNN would be falling all over themselves to report it. read more

WND Exclusive – HAVE PAMPERED PLAYERS RUINED AMERICA’S PASTIME?

The spineless NFL has been party to its own demise for a while now. Professional football has been the pre-eminent sport in America for years, far outpacing the MLB, NHL and the NBA. It’s grown at such a pace as to cause many to believe it too big and certainly too popular to fail.

Well, it may be too big to fail completely, but popularity is a fickle mistress.

Viewership is down for a variety of reasons. Fans, particularly the younger set, are simply not watching traditional network TV.

“Americans under the age of 30 now watch almost 50 percent fewer hours of traditional TV than they did in 2010,” reports the Atlantic.

There is a dearth of heroes taking the field – many less stand-out superstars than in years gone by. They’ve been replaced with overcompensated mediocrity. read more

NFL Quarterback has no one to Blame but Himself

Once again, football season is upon us. Hooray! I can take off my blacking armband, signifying my mourning of the end of last

season, as we all gear up for the next.

My New England Patriots reported in yesterday to begin 2017 training camp, as did many other teams, and the Hall of Fame game is now only a week away.

This is time of year when all teams are equal – although some are a lot more equal than others. Every team is undefeated – all the big name free agents have been snapped up, and fans are excited to see what their teams’ new acquisitions are capable of.

However, there is a once-marquee player who is still unemployed. That is of course the former star quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers, Colin Kaepernick. The once stud signal-caller who guided his team to the playoffs, and a Superbowl just a few years (okay – it was five), has now become pro football’s number one outcast. read more

Podcast – WikiLeaks Proves that the Press is Working for Hillary – Reasons Why the NFL is Losing Audience

Thanks to WikiLeaks, we no longer need to wonder whether the press and the dirty democrats have been in collusion. We now have several smoking guns. By all rights, these findings should disqualify them and Hillary. Of course it won’t. Will these revelations make a different in a couple of weeks? Who knows.

The NFL is losing viewers. Even their marquee games of Sunday and Monday night are way down. Many are wondering why America’s game has taken such a hit this year. I posit a few theories. read more

The NFL Nixes Another Good Deed

The National Football League has made the headlines recently. Unfortunately, not for the right reasons.

This weekend was the kickoff of the 2016 NFL season. Being that it long-ago supplanted baseball as America’s pastime, one would expect it to be in the news – that and fantasy football has become a nationwide obsession.

Yet it is the ridiculous antics of a few players which have stolen the headlines. It’s well known what the San Francisco quarterback did during the preseason. By sitting or taking a knee during the pregame national anthem, he has injected politics into the NFL. Since then, a few others have followed suit, claiming they too are taking a stand (or a seat, or a knee) against racism and oppression in America – the pet cause of charlatans and race-hustlers.

And for the antics that detract from the game we love, the NFL does nothing and says little – no fines, no game suspensions – nothing. We all know these fools have every right to protest and support their phony cause – and to that I am in full agreement. read more

Podcast – 49ers Quarterback’s Really Bad Day – Reuters and USNI News See Things Differently Regarding Dustup Between U.S. and Iran

Colin Kapernick, Quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, was caught sitting during the pregame National Anthem. He wasn’t in deep meditation, concentrating on the game. He didn’t merely neglect to stand. No – he was making a statement regarding the oppression of black people in America.

Two differing reports on the very same event happened recently. The lefty news reporting agency Reuters, shall we say, sugar-coated the incident off the coast of Iran between an American Destroyer and Iranian patrol boats, whereas USNI News gave us a full and correct accounting of events as they really occurred. read more

Podcast – Taxman’s Coming for Your Gold Medal – NFL Tells Cowboys They Can’t Honor the Cops – Hillary’s Tax Return is a Sham

Who knew Gold medals were taxed. Well, we should have – everything else is. Yes – American athletes return triumphantly from Rio proudly adorned with the hardware they worked their whole lives to win – only to be greeted at the gate by the taxman.

Black Lives Matter strikes again – and this time without saying a word. The NFL has denied a request by the Dallas Cowboys to place a sticker on their helmets honoring the Dallas Police Department – and all cops. Somehow it would stir up controversy and make a political statement.

Hillary has released one year, 2015, of her and Bill’s tax returns and charitable giving – but just one year. I discuss what a set-up this is and what a shame the return actually is.

I also quickly touch on the DNC staffer who was recently murdered and the LGBT Olympics. read more

Podcast – NFL Bribed Rams to Draft Homosexual Player – Dirty Bombs and Nuclear Plant Attacks are Next for ISIS

Today I discuss the NFL and it’s desire to be all inclusive. And such it is with the LGBT community as it is revealed the NFL bribed the then St Louis Rams into drafting the league’s first openly homosexual player, Michael Sam.

I also discuss ISIS and their evident want to attack Europe’s nuclear facilities, either with explosives or more likely a cyber-attack. Experts are also increasingly warning of dirty bomb attacks in Europe. How long will it be before reports leak that ISIS plans to do the same in America? read more
