We’ll be able to look back on 9/24/2017 as the day the NFL died.
It’s been coming for some time, particularly with the publication of Dr. Ann McKee’s research in to chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or C.T.E., results that should stop every parent right in their tracks.
After examining the brains of 111 dead NFL players, she and her colleagues found CTE in 110 of them. That’s pretty much 100%. Play football and you’re assured of serious brain damage.
What parent would let their child play after learning of these findings? Apparently, the numbers of football players are dwindling rapidly, and within the next few years, there will be a serious effort to end football at all levels below the NFL. Even now, high school teams are disappearing at a rapid pace, with parent’s reluctance to let their children get destroyed for a relatively stupid game.
That’s part one.
The other part, when combined with the lack of players, is the lack of fans, and it will put the nail in the coffin for the NFL.
The politicization of football is clearly alienating lifelong fans, who are getting very sick and tired of watching extremely wealthy athletes resort to grandstanding about issues that don’t even exist.
Their obvious disrespect for a nation that has allowed them to gain such tremendous wealth, and a nation that affords them more opportunity and freedom than anywhere else on Earth, has raised the ire of all patriotic Americans, particularly the educated ones and not the virtue signalers who simply jump on any bandwagon that comes along, as long as it’s Anti-America, that is.
On 9/24/2017, after some eyebrow raising tweets from President Trump, the snowflakes went apoplectic, as they always do these days. Emboldened and enraged by their latest shared hallucination, they have encouraged all players and anyone else to take a knee to the USA.
The irony is that this is all being led by a player who simply doesn’t have the talent to play at this level and is quite angry about it. So, he decided to get the spotlight back on him by taking a knee during the anthem, and to try to paint his unemployment as some sort of blackballing campaign. Real fans know the truth. He simply sucks, and with his latest act, he’s toxic to any team.
The fact that people are responding to a rich, silver-spoon-fed brat who looks like a MS13 gang banger, is proof of the declining intelligence of Americans, as they can no longer discern truth from fiction. Americans are simply unable to tell the difference anymore.
Even the vaunted Pittsburg Steelers, a favorite of patriotic America, took the insult to a whole new level by refusing to come out on to the field for the National Anthem. That little stunt certainly didn’t go unnoticed.
Over in England, during the ridiculous, annual game of NFL imperialism, the Jaguars refused to stand for the National Anthem, yet they rose for the UK anthem of “God Save the Queen.”
Let that one sink in, folks.
Personally, I’m sick of the incessant whining of these dimwitted athletes. I’m tired of the proselytizing from left wing sports broadcasters, and the constant politics that have taken over what used to be a relaxing getaway from the drudgery of our daily grind.
Like most will be doing, I am saying goodbye to the NFL. I know that I’ll enjoy the new found free time.
