Forget the NFL

PDT is an absolute genius when it comes to making Democrats and journalists (but I repeat myself) take hard stands on opinions that are the complete opposite of where mainstream American voters are. PDT at the UN verbally attacked a deranged dictator who tortures and starves his own people and is threatening the world with nuclear war; Democrats immediately defended the deranged dictator who tortures and starves his own people and is threatening the world with nuclear war. Then, PDT criticized bitchy NFL football players who disrespect the American Flag and National Anthem, and Democrats rushed to defend the flag-haters.

Well played, PDT. The same people who cheered when Obama and the Democrats went on the warpath about the name of the Washington Redskins now say it’s “Unpresidential” for the POTUS to comment on sports.

As for myself, I freakin’ love football. On any Saturday, I’ll typically follow four college games; and if I can score an invite to a high school game on a Friday night, I’m there. But the NFL… I lost interest in them way before they became another phalange of the social justice left.  No, I stopped following professional football because it became a celebration of Thug Culture. The league looked the other way while players beat up their wives and girlfriends, and elevated murderers and sociopaths to positions of acclaim.  (e.g. Michael Vick, Ray Lewis, Aaron Hernandez…)  And then there were the league’s demands for taxpayer subsidies for multibillion dollar stadia, from a league that was tax exempt until 2015.  And the ticket prices for a lot of these games put them out-of-reach of working class Americans.

One of the delights of watching college games streamed over the internet is that the commentary is minimal; just play-by-play. And every play isn’t replayed eight times from different angles while computer graphics explode across the screen while talking heads make noise exchange.

I anticipate that the NFL is going to try to make some ham-fisted “patriotic” gesture to recover from this PR debacle. I imagine something like a squadron of red-white-and-blue pickups (“Those patriotic hicks in flyover love pickups, don’t they?”) forming an American flag midfield while a squadron of F-16 flies overhead.

That’s pretty much what I got to say about that. After the jump, I just discovered this Japanese band, I find them amazing. And I like the way the lead singer just kind of casually saunters his way through the video in a Slavic tuxedo jacket.

  1. Not a fan of sports on TV. However, my husband’s family loves pro- football, from my 87year old father and mother in law down to my 7 yo great nephew. But, they are also Trump supporters. They are all boycotting watching the games. The NFL is making a huge mistake.

    This could be costly.

  2. While it’s a hoot watching DJT tweak the left, I wish someone would smash his iPhone and tie his hands every time he feels the urge to tweet. Maybe a shock collar would work. He’s got a job to do and he needs to get on with it.

    It’s rich, listening to lefties lecture us on the evils of connecting employment to one’s politics. It’s as if James Damore and Brendan Eich are still at Google and Mozilla. Or the guys that lost their job when some busybody woman was offended by a dongle joke. Or the woman who landed in South Africa only to learn that, while in the air, a lame (but not lewd or offensive to normal people) joke she made on twitter went viral.

    Speaking of busybody womyn, a white woman took it on herself to be offended on behalf on a black man who wasn’t offended and got someone fired in Oregon.

    The NFL is just another front in the asinine BLM charade. There have been problems in St Louis this weekend and the STL city council passed a resolution to remember the guy shot by the acquitted cop (his rap sheet wasn’t included in the proclamation). Couldn’t they find a black person to honor that, you know, is honorable? Or is this the not-so-soft bigotry of low expectations?

    Funny how whenever an innocent bystander (often black) is shot and killed by one of the bros, it’s dead silence.

    I’m really sick of all of it. To quote Kathy Shaidle, we really should have picked our own damn cotton.

  3. I have never been a fan of the NFL or any pro sports, to be honest. When a team can pack up and move in the middle of the night and abandon the city that was their host for decades because the city government mommies and daddies refused to get them a shiny new stadium for Christmas…

    Give me college sports. Especially football.

  5. I generally only care what professional athletes do from the moment of tip-off until the final buzzer. Their personal causes are unimportant to me.

    If you want to make a spectacle of yourself on TV be my guest. Don’t act all surprised and sanctimonious when you become a target of derision and boycotts.

  6. My goodness but you folks are weird.

    NFL players are protesting true state oppression. Few groups have felt the wrath of a heavy handed stage that ignores the bill of rights more than African Americans. So a handful protests in a public non violent format.

    So what do Conservatives do? They don’t support their just cause of removing statist oppression. Instead Conservatives demand that they worship state symbols or they should be fired.

    Weird.

  7. @6 you really think blacks are oppressed in the united states? blacks are the race that commits more crimes against every other race than any of those races commit crimes against. blacks commit more crimes against blacks then all the other races put together. you shouldn’t believe everything you read and hear in the democrat party media complex.

  9. mike- what oppression? Specifics, please.

    I’m certain I’m a lot older than you are. I remember MLK and couldn’t figure out why anyone would mistreat another based on skin color. It just didn’t compute.

    Well, here we are 50 effing years later and as far away from racial harmony as ever. In some way, it’s worse. There are lots of reasons but IMHO a big reason is that there are too many people, mostly on the left, that profit from continued racial strife.

    Oppression of blacks has zero benefit to me or any other normal people. There’s a lot of on the downside.

    Ask yourself. If racial strife and “racism” went away tomorrow, who has the most to lose?

    As things are, I don’t think there is a solution. It will come to blood. No winners.

  10. So, the left-wing fascists who think Christians should be punished for refusing to participate in gay weddings, that people should go to jail for addressing a tranny with the wrong pronoun, and men should lost their Constitutional due process rights when accused of sexual assault… are all of the sudden fretting about “state oppression?”

    They seem to be a bit selective about their concerns about “state oppression.” Just as they were selectively cheering when Brendan Eich and James Damore got fired for expressing their opinions. (How did lefties defend the firing of Brandan Eich. Oh, yeah, “He hurt the brand. Private companies have every right to fire people who ‘hurt the brand.)

    Besides which, the #BLM movement is based on a lie. Michael Brown was not a “gentle giant,” he was a thug who got what was coming to him. Racist cops do not go around shooting young black men with impunity. The White House is not run by “White Supremacists.” These are divisive myths being promoted by the far left in order to destroy the country.

    It’s horsecrap.

  14. A slight adjustment: ” “PDT at the UN verbally attacked a deranged dictator who tortures and starves his own people and is threatening the world with nuclear war” by threatening him back with the specter of nuclear war. This is a really puzzling thing to do with someone who controls nuclear bombs, has operational missiles, and is 35 miles away from the biggest city in South Korea, our nominal ally. Democrats immediately criticized this blatantly provocative approach as only likely to lead to the very things that PDT says he doesn’t want.”

  15. I have cut my cable as I am working toward not a penny of my $ going to Leftist bigots. This includes the NFL and most of Hollywood.

    I should really thank them as I am also saving $ by not shopping at Target and it is healthy to no longer have Kelloggs part tarts for Saturday breakfast as I run out the door for my weekend errands.

    I am simplifying my life, saving $, and every boo hoo hoo article I read about Leftist a-holes losing $ and crying about whatever is the problem or blaming it on the weather makes me happy.

    I hope one day Mr kneeler CP is in the poor house along with his racist gf.

  21. My goodness littlelettermikey is creepy.

    Random NFL millionaire players are blaming the actions of dysfunctional black on everybody but dysfunctional blacks. Few groups have felt the misery of continued failure due to ignoring civility, opportunity, responsibility, multiple welfare hands-up and hand-outs, affirmative action, special opportunities more than dysfunctional African Americans. So a handful of millionaire brothers pissing on America is about as useful and meaningful as maggots in your Cheerios.

    So what do Conservatives do? They don’t increase the lost cause by shoveling more good money after bad into the dysfunctional garbage pit which breeds such contempt for civility, personal responsibility and opportunity. Instead Conservatives demand that the millionaire phonies stop corrupting the atmosphere with their bullshit piety and stop pissing on the only system in the world were they could be such high paid assholes or be fired.

    Creepy.

  22. I say the best way to help “oppressed” Blacks is it put in a 75% income tax on Black sports players. This money can be used to foster education in Black communities. Isn’t that the true Progressive way to solve a social problem (perceived or not).

    Also, affirmative action needs to be in place for pro-sports. The diversity of the teams needs to match the diversity of the home city.

  25. This all started because kneeler #1 CP did not want to be let go for bad performance so he started up a SJW protest so that his team would be forced to keep him else the Left would go nuts and say it was because of his BLM protest.

    I think it was the idea of CP’s racist gf. Then others saw how much coverage CP was getting and of course they had to be faux virtue signalers too.

    Then CP got cocky and decided he could go free agent for more $ and perks as what team would not want all the extra coverage and the virtue signaling worshippers he was bringing in. Then reality hit.

    Now all the faux virtue signaling are taking a knee to show how woke they are. That is why you have a murderer of black men taking the knee against the killing of criminals (or people behaving in an unsafe way) by police. The Lefts madness and hypocrisy at its finest.

  27. littlelettermikey doesn’t have a clue about poverty.

    Being dirt poor is inconvenient, but it isn’t poverty. Poverty is when you just throw in the towel and wait for someone to come along and put food in your mouth. Abject poverty is when you demand they pre-chew the food they put in your mouth.

    Too many blacks coagulate in poverty traps. These are neighborhoods with underperforming schools, poor healthcare access, minimal job access and high crime rates.

    No, wait. That is not true. Poverty traps are neighborhoods where people are prone to commit crimes at a high rate. They need specialized healthcare due to their chronic disregard toward living in a healthy manner. And their pathologies make the concept of a solid public education into a mockery.

    The average middle-class kid arrives at kindergarten having heard about 45 million words spoken. The average welfare child has heard about 15 million words spoken. Poor children have double the short attention span problems of average children. They are three time more likely to speak in a way that in unintelligible to strangers. Five times as many will be in poor health. Very few display any signs of emerging literacy skills and the small motor skills necessary to begin writing, let alone coloring between the lines. Poor children lack so many basic skills that after only a few weeks in school they are singled out for special education and retention. They start behind and they, largely, stay behind. They have terrible problems breaking the spelling-to-sound code known as phonics. They become slow, plodding readers who struggle with word recognition and miss word meaning almost entirely. Their comprehension skills do not develop and they become used to failure and the frustration of failure. They give up.

    Once the reading skills have failed them, they slide easily into non achievement, sporadic attendance, social problems and dropping out. Teachers and classrooms can not be gauged by how the slowest learners catch on. Teachers must have to make compromising decisions in order to adequately serve the larger needs of the group. Top rate “remediation” concentration has about a 30% success rate.

    The sad truth is that these children come from “homes” where minds are malnourished by improper diet, neglect, and even stupidity. These kids are NOT blank slates. They are cast into the pot of attempting to make silk purses out of sow’s ears.

    We have reached the point in our dysfunctional neighborhoods of the survival of the fittest at the most primitive level.

    Yes poor families are resource poor. But if you backed up a book-mobile to the door, most of these families have no value system in place to even take a peek inside.

    Dangerous neighborhoods are not overflowing with high-quality child care, children’s programs and places for kids to explore. Infant mortality is high. Child mortality is high. Low birth weights are common. Single parents abound. Lots of teen moms. Moms have a high rate of alcohol, tobacco and drug use. There is constant moving. Child neglect and abuse are high. Day-care is spotty. Unemployment and low paying jobs are the norm. The parent is likely poorly educated. Health care is spotty and often ignored. Poor nutrition is the norm. Threats and even violence abound. People can’t pay by credit and cash is stolen.

    There is a pathology among the men in their twenties and thirties to introduce young teen girls to sex and the “good” life. Men with multiple children by multiple young females is a form of status.

    In the wild, this sort of societal breakdown would be quickly resolved by Darwinist theory. Michael Brown, the Gentle Giant, would be taken out by the lead bull in the herd long before he became a rogue threat. In our system, we pay him to breathe and we clean up his messes.

    So, when the millionaire jocks take a knee, they are blaming the wrong system. The flag didn’t impose the pathologies on the dysfunctional critters who end up getting shot by the cops before a rival gang gets them. The fault, dear black protestors, lies not in the government, but in the dysfunction of the herd that bred and raised you.

    But we DARE NOT address the issue openly and honestly.

    If we were to go into the Chicago slum and send the kids through a thorough Mayo Clinic analysis, we would be hard pressed to know what to do with the results. We grade meat. We inspect cars. We monitor pollutants.

    But we have never figured out how to rehabilitate criminals and make useful citizens of them. And, unfortunately, there is no way known to restructure the malnourished mind and child’s brain development. Ben Carson knows the truth in that.

    For the DemonizingRats, it is always and forever a problem solved by hiring bureaucrats to spend huge sums of money “addressing” the problem. And even the general public has settled for warehousing these people in their ghettos.

    littlelettermikey is clueless. He lives in a “Let’s Pretend” world where Glenda Goodwitch will tap munchkins on the head and turn them into happy “normal” folk who never fail to vote Democrat.

It is a physical re-wiring of the brain in the first 6 months of life. If a person is under 18, the diagnosis is RAD, over 18, sociopath.

  31. It’s unwise to expect that there’s wisdom in anything the NFL does or says. It’s never been a factor in their business model. It’s a game. Subsidiary economies, ESPN etc, take their cue from the big guys who don’t have to think.

    Everyone knows, even blacklivesmatter morons, that Kaepernick’s initial showboat protest, just as obnoxious as that idiot ex-player’s kneeling in prayer, who now plays baseball; is based on a false narrative of cops targeting black men. The facts & stats are very clear.

    The Donald communicates for those that voted for him. He’s only saying what most of America thinks. If you think otherwise, then you’re deluded.

    “This is a really puzzling thing to do” to a “deranged dictator who tortures and starves his own people and is threatening the world with the specter of nuclear war.”

    Why? What are the alternatives?

    7.5% of NoKo roads are paved. It has under 4,000 miles of railroad tracks. It has five deep water ports. There are 39 airports with paved runways. There are 43 grass strip airports. It has about 170 ocean going vessels. Its coal powered electric plants are few and highly vulnerable.

    North Korea has such a fragile infrastructure that it could be crippled easily within days. Of course, the threat of North Korea nuking Seoul, South Korea is a highly serious one.

    So, what course should a person smarter than Trump take?

    Right now, nuclear disarmament has been suggested anew. Should that be before or after NoKo nukes Seoul? Or should Trump stall for two terms and leave the next chump to deal with the North Koreans and Iran?

    Maybe a band of extra bright world socialists could set up meetings with Iran and North Korea and talk them into Utopia.

    Comment by CrayCrayPatriot — September 24, 2017 @ 10:15 pm – September 24, 2017

    It’s always funny watching CrayCray out himself as a white supremacist and racist here.

    You see, CrayCray’s surprise is that white people would think of things and act based on their skin color. According to CrayCray, white people are supposed to be more evolved than that; for example, it would be shameful for white people to riot when a white person is shot by police, or for white people to automatically defend criminal behavior by other white people. Indeed, there is a whole grievance industry of white people like CrayCray who insist over and over again how awful, evil and wicked white people are and how they should hate their skin color and the “privilege” it grants.

    But black people are different. CrayCray is merely reminding us that Democrats like him KNOW black people are inferior and tribal compared to whites. CrayCray and his fellow Democrats KNOW that black people make decisions based on skin color, that they must automatically riot if a black person is killed, and that they must defend a black criminal at all costs. There is a whole industry of people like Obama’s advisors Al Sharpton and pastor Jeremiah Wright who teach that black people are intellectually superior, invented everything before those “Greek homos”, and such. Indeed, a black person who dares criticize another black person or challenge black ghetto culture is stripped of their blackness; that’s why CrayCray and his fellow Democrats refer to non-Democrat black people like Condi Rice, Ben Carson, Clarence Thomas, Tim Scott, Thomas Sowell and others as “house n*ggers”, “Uncle Toms”, “oreos”, “acting white”, and more.

    This is the fundamental challenge. Conservatives treat people as people; liberals like CrayCray and his fellow Democrats treat them differently based on skin color. This is why conservatives want hiring and university admissions based on merit, while CrayCray and his fellow Democrats want them based on skin color and ethnicity.

    Yeah, it’s funny how rusty isn’t demanding that he be replaced by a black person, given that the NFL in theory turns out hundreds, if not THOUSANDS, of black people who are just as qualified as said “coach” is.

    That’s a good question, in fact. When is rusty giving up his job so a black person can have it? Certainly rusty knows the only reason he has his job is because of white male privilege.

    Now watch how rusty blabbers and runs away.

  44. Sorry V (#33), I’m a classical music type, Stephen Sondheim and Leonard Bernstein were potentially dangerous innovators for Broadway music.

    I note in my morning reading that no opposition to kneeling has been allowed. They leaned on the Steeler to apologize for doing the right thing, and the got the owner of the Cowboys to kneel before the anthem as well. (At least in the photo he looked in pain about it.) I’m glad I’ve never been an NFL fan so I don’t have to feel betrayed. Now if it extends to more than that one idiot on the Athletics in MLB, I’ll be pissed.
