WND Exclusive – Will NFL be Sanitized Out of Existence?

from Brent Smith for World Net Daily:

If you are a regular reader, you know I am a huge NFL fan and a diehard New England Patriots fan. And to all the haters out there, I was a fan before the start of the dynasty years – although it’s difficult to remember that far back!

I’m not here to gloat – but rather to lament the problem in the NFL – and that is safety, or more precisely, trying to regulate the violence out a violent game.

Now, politically speaking – I’m disappointed, but not surprised. A lot of NFL team owners are left-leaning as are many at the league office and players. They also have a tendency to be spineless and therefore bow to every “we have to do something” mantra. So wanting to regulate human behavior isn’t really that foreign to them. read more

Video Podcast – Enough with NFL Social Justice Already

by: Brent Smith at the Common Constitutionalist

So I found a couple of articles from the Sun Sentinel in Miami Florida about the ongoing ridiculousness of this social justice movement crap and the NFL.

It’s about one head coach, Brian Flores, of the Miami Dolphins who threw in with the social justice crowd by claiming that his own story was one of social justice.

I discuss this being a problem on several levels, but mostly, the coach missed a golden opportunity to tell his real life story of working hard in America, to achieve your goal. read more

Kaepernick is Ready for The NFL – Are they Ready for Him?

After the Superbowl, I usually go into a period of dormancy. Don’t care for basketball, baseball is boring and I can watch enoughImage result for take a chance on Kaepernick hockey to stay interested. So when I see a headline regarding anything football, I glom on, no matter trivial.

So Kaepernick is “ready” for the NFL again, eh. Question is, is the NFL ready for him, and will any team take a chance on quarterback who may no longer have it. Also will any team risk any potential antics on his part.

from the Blaze:

Colin Kaepernick looking to get back in NFL after settling grievance—and a QB vacancy just opened

Former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick is reportedly ready to get back in the NFL now that he has settled his grievance against the league that claimed he had been blackballed for protesting the national anthem.

Kaepernick has not played professional football since 2016, but a source close to the former quarterback said he’s ready to go if called upon. The Miami Dolphins traded their starting quarterback Friday, creating a vacancy Kaepernick could potentially fill. read more

NFL Fines Running Back Over a Donation

I am certainly not a fan of the Dallas Cowboys. You might even say I’m an anti-fan of the so-called “America’s Team.” And early onImage result for Ezekiel Elliott fined I had my mind made up about their star running back Ezekiel Elliot. Frankly I thought he appeared to be an arrogant chump.

Well, evidently looks can be deceiving. I have new-found respect for Elliot, although I will never become a Cowboys fan.

from The Daily Caller:

STAR COWBOYS RUNNING BACK CALLS THE NFL ‘RIDICULOUS’ AFTER BEING HIT WITH RIDICULOUS FINE

Cowboys star Ezekiel Elliot isn’t holding back his criticism of the NFL anymore.

The star running back, 23, was hit with a $13,369 fine this week for “unsportsmanlike conduct,” which seems pretty reasonable, except he only received the fine because he dropped a $21 donation into a giant red Salvation Army pot after to celebrate a touchdown. read more

Trump, the Lunch Pail Billionaire, has Driven the Left Mad

It was August 1, 1988. Remember the date? Maybe not, unless you’re a common sense, right thinking conservative. It was the first day of Rush Limbaugh’s nationally syndicated radio talk show. And it was the beginning of the new conservative movement. One that the everyman, like you and me, could be part of.

The show took off like a rocket. No one had ever heard such things, particularly from the boring, deadpan, AM dial.

And why did it become an instant an enduring success? First was the shock factor. People, me included, couldn’t believe what we were hearing. “Can you believe what that Limbaugh guy said on the radio,” was a common refrain.

And second, and more importantly, Rush gave voice to what we were thinking. It’s just that simple. Finally there was a guy in the media who actually thought like us – believed what we did, and was not shy about expressing it. In a sea of liberalism from the left and measured politispeak from the right, Limbaugh was breath of fresh air. read more

Less People Watching Because Hollywood is too Political

from Constitution.com:

Liberalism Killed the Radio Star… and the TV star… and the Movie and Sports Stars, Too

Liberalism is fast destroying the entirety of the entertainment sector in the U.S. today, from movies and TV, to sports, to publishing. But the amazing thing is that these media sectors don’t care even a tiny bit that their popularity and finances are eroding faster than a sand castle at high tide.

A new poll by McLaughlin & Associates and the Media Research Center reveals a shocking statistic:  Fully 44 percent of Americans are less likely to watch sports and entertainment shows “because they have become too political.” read more

Next Round of Cuts Coming for ESPN

from Constitution.com:

In the world of sports reporting, there is no longer any doubt that politics are bad for business, yet ESPN can’t seem to divorce themselves from the democrats.

The “worldwide leader in sports” has long been playing politics on their network, joining the massive, futile “resistance” to President Trump that has been spearheaded by a number of liberal lunatics.

Beginning with their unethical firing of baseball legend Curt Schilling over his personal political beliefs, the network has turned into a harbinger of media malfeasance to come. [Actually – Rush Limbaugh was the first to get the ax.] read more

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
