Default What should NFL do

NFL Ratings are declining quickly. I think its time for a team to stand up and make a drastic change.

The Setup: Tell all players they can stand, sit, kneel, lay down during the national anthem.

The Plan: After the anthem is over go back into the locker room, every wide receiver/corner/or safety that didn't stand gets to switch their 80's number for a 60's and play on the line. If the kicker/punter doesn't stand he gets to play QB behind them. Every lineman that stood gets their moment to shine and play where they choose.

yes the players have a contract, but I doubt that contract guarantees the position they will play.

After a few series of these guys getting pummeled by the D line and embarrassed they might choose to stand next anthem.

Also you know NFL ratings would soar if you could tune in and watch a guard catching a screen pass from a linebacker and running down the sideline with a nose guard as lead blocker.

NFL should fire the Commissioner, apologize for all the anti America crap and then write a large new list of rules that govern behavior on the field to include being fined or fired for being unpatriotic.

Maybe people stop going to the games, TV stops commercials, and why not, for the heck of it, all the beer suppliers stop bring beer to the stadiums. That would probably be the one that puts everybody over the top.

But even if they do apologize or whatever to get people back, I dont think people will go back(some will but not all). People are finding out that football is not the most entertaining relaxing thing to do on Sunday.

I wish they would swap college to sundays so I could actually catch a game or two.

I’ve noticed that the older I get, the less I care about watching football. I remember the same thing happening to my dad when he got into his late 40s. Now that he’s in his 70’s, I don’t think he’s watched a game in 20 years. If the NFL is not picking up younger fans, then they are losing fans by attrition. Granted, my observations only include two people...but I wonder if this is a small part of the equation?

I agree completely. The less I watch the less I care to watch. Whatever they do, they better do it quickly because people are realizing that life without football sunday is not as bad as once thought. I would say send all the kneeling football plyers to the middle east and let our military guys come here and play football, however I think that would put our country in danger if we had to rely on those guys to protect us.

The NFL is losing money. They gambled that the people who give them 100s of millions a year would forget and forgive, as if millions of Americans would follow the views they embraced. We didn't.
Now, they have to fix it. Or try to. If they had simply enforced the rules ALREADY in place, this would have ended with one or two players getting fined. Now, they will have to get a new commissioner, rewrite the rules to try to appease players, fans, idiot politicians and others that never gave a rats *** about football until it became a political platform. That's going to be a much bigger job than just benching a couple of "activists".

From the New York Post, not that facts matter to any liberal/NFL kneeler:

The FBI released its official crime tally for 2016 on Monday, and the data flies in the face of the rhetoric that professional athletes rehearsed in revived Black Lives Matter protests over the weekend.

Nearly 900 additional blacks were killed in 2016 compared with 2015, bringing the black homicide victim total to 7,881. Those 7,881 “black bodies,” in the parlance of Ta-Nehisi Coates, are 1,305 more than the number of white victims (which in this case includes most Hispanics) for the same period, though blacks are only 13 percent of the nation’s population.

The increase in black homicides last year comes on top of a previous 900-victim increase between 2014 and 2015.

Who is killing these black victims? Not whites, and not the police, but other blacks.

In 2016, the police fatally shot 233 blacks, the vast majority armed and dangerous, according to the Washington Post. The paper categorized only 16 black male victims of police shootings as “unarmed.” That classification masks assaults against officers and violent resistance to arrest.

Contrary to the Black Lives Matter narrative, the police have much more to fear from black males than black males have to fear from the police. In 2015, a police officer was 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male was to be killed by a police officer.

Black males have made up 42 percent of all cop-killers over the last decade, though they are only 6 percent of the population. That 18.5 ratio undoubtedly worsened in 2016, in light of the 53 percent increase in gun murders of officers — committed vastly and disproportionately by black males.

Among all homicide suspects whose race was known, white killers of blacks numbered only 243.

Violent crime has now risen by a significant amount for two consecutive years. The total number of violent crimes rose 4.1 percent in 2016, and estimated homicides rose 8.6 percent.

In 2015, violent crime rose by nearly 4 percent and estimated homicides by nearly 11 percent. The last time violence rose two years in a row was 2005-06.

The reason for the current increase is what I have called the Ferguson Effect. Cops are backing off of proactive policing in high-crime minority neighborhoods, and criminals are becoming emboldened.

Having been told incessantly by politicians, the media and Black Lives Matter activists that they are bigoted for getting out of their cars and questioning someone loitering on a known drug corner at 2 a.m., many officers are instead just driving by.

Such stops are discretionary; cops don’t have to make them. And when political elites demonize the police for just such proactive policing, we shouldn’t be surprised when cops get the message and do less of it.

Seventy-two percent of the nation’s officers say that they and their colleagues are now less willing to stop and question suspicious persons, according to a Pew Research poll released in January 2017. The reason is the persistent anti-cop climate.

Four studies came out in 2016 alone rebutting the charge that police shootings are racially biased. If there is a bias in police shootings, it works in favor of blacks and against whites. That truth has not stopped the ongoing demonization of the police — including, now, by many of the country’s ignorant professional athletes.

The toll will be felt, as always, in the inner city, by the thousands of law-abiding people there who desperately want more police protection.

Hold up there bud. You can't go using any of those facts and things for arguments. You need to rely on pure emotion with a little violence thrown in.



Kidding! I kid. Great post by the way.

God bless and happy hunting.

Damage is already done. I doubt the NFL will ever fully recover. Last Monday's NFL game had the worst rating ever posted by the NFL. The NFL paying 100 million in blackmail money to social justice organizations while charging the US Defense Department a 100 million to honor soldiers is not going to help their ratings, its going to hurt the rating even more. The NFL has just put themselves on the same level as the World Wrestling Entertainment, Inc. its a down hill slide from which the NFL will never recover.

Outside of them burying their noses in the political BS, it's still clown shoes. I think ratings would be falling without any of the recent controversy. Not as drastically, but still falling.

The really sad part of this whole deal is that Football has been on the list of Left for many years to destroy and the very clowns that have benefited the most form a truly awesome sport just put them over the finish line. I hate it because I was one of those guys that played the game for many years; live eat and breath the sport and quite honestly it kept me out of a lot trouble as a youth and taught me more about hard work, responsibility and team work than any other thing in life and it’s a truly american phenomenon that will die like other traditions.
Just a sad affair!

Read Pat Buchannon’s book “The Death of the West”. He explains the theory behind what’s going on. When the Communists realized at WW1 that poor men would fight and die for God and Country, only to return to a life of hard work and poverty- with no interest in their ideology- they realized the had to destroy all history and traditions the people held onto. First taking God out of the public forum, then erasing American history and greatness as white men having slaves and raping woman and the environment, and accepted social institutions that reinforced American greatness.

It’s all part of their bigger plan.

The Naked Communist

Jan 1963
From "The Naked Communist," by Cleon Skousen

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting ****ography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch."

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

38. Transfer some of the powers of arrest from the police to social agencies. Treat all behavioral problems as psychiatric disorders which no one but psychiatrists can understand [or treat].

39. Dominate the psychiatric profession and use mental health laws as a means of gaining coercive control over those who oppose Communist goals.

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use ["]united force["] to solve economic, political or social problems.

43. Overthrow all colonial governments before native populations are ready for self-government.

44. Internationalize the Panama Canal.

45. Repeal the Connally reservation so the United States cannot prevent the World Court from seizing jurisdiction [over domestic problems. Give the World Court jurisdiction] over nations and individuals alike.

The NFL can act more like employers and less like the employed.
And maybe hire more people with character

1. U.S. acceptance of coexistence as the only alternative to atomic war.

2. U.S. willingness to capitulate in preference to engaging in atomic war.

3. Develop the illusion that total disarmament [by] the United States would be a demonstration of moral strength.

4. Permit free trade between all nations regardless of Communist affiliation and regardless of whether or not items could be used for war.

5. Extension of long-term loans to Russia and Soviet satellites.

6. Provide American aid to all nations regardless of Communist domination.

7. Grant recognition of Red China. Admission of Red China to the U.N.

8. Set up East and West Germany as separate states in spite of Khrushchev's promise in 1955 to settle the German question by free elections under supervision of the U.N.

9. Prolong the conferences to ban atomic tests because the United States has agreed to suspend tests as long as negotiations are in progress.

10. Allow all Soviet satellites individual representation in the U.N.

11. Promote the U.N. as the only hope for mankind. If its charter is rewritten, demand that it be set up as a one-world government with its own independent armed forces. (Some Communist leaders believe the world can be taken over as easily by the U.N. as by Moscow. Sometimes these two centers compete with each other as they are now doing in the Congo.)

12. Resist any attempt to outlaw the Communist Party.

13. Do away with all loyalty oaths.

14. Continue giving Russia access to the U.S. Patent Office.

15. Capture one or both of the political parties in the United States.

16. Use technical decisions of the courts to weaken basic American institutions by claiming their activities violate civil rights.

17. Get control of the schools. Use them as transmission belts for socialism and current Communist propaganda. Soften the curriculum. Get control of teachers' associations. Put the party line in textbooks.

18. Gain control of all student newspapers.

19. Use student riots to foment public protests against programs or organizations which are under Communist attack.

20. Infiltrate the press. Get control of book-review assignments, editorial writing, policy-making positions.

21. Gain control of key positions in radio, TV, and motion pictures.

22. Continue discrediting American culture by degrading all forms of artistic expression. An American Communist cell was told to "eliminate all good sculpture from parks and buildings, substitute shapeless, awkward and meaningless forms."

23. Control art critics and directors of art museums. "Our plan is to promote ugliness, repulsive, meaningless art."

24. Eliminate all laws governing obscenity by calling them "censorship" and a violation of free speech and free press.

25. Break down cultural standards of morality by promoting ****ography and obscenity in books, magazines, motion pictures, radio, and TV.

26. Present homosexuality, degeneracy and promiscuity as "normal, natural, healthy."

27. Infiltrate the churches and replace revealed religion with "social" religion. Discredit the Bible and emphasize the need for intellectual maturity, which does not need a "religious crutch."

28. Eliminate prayer or any phase of religious expression in the schools on the ground that it violates the principle of "separation of church and state."

29. Discredit the American Constitution by calling it inadequate, old-fashioned, out of step with modern needs, a hindrance to cooperation between nations on a worldwide basis.

30. Discredit the American Founding Fathers. Present them as selfish aristocrats who had no concern for the "common man."

31. Belittle all forms of American culture and discourage the teaching of American history on the ground that it was only a minor part of the "big picture." Give more emphasis to Russian history since the Communists took over.

32. Support any socialist movement to give centralized control over any part of the culture--education, social agencies, welfare programs, mental health clinics, etc.

33. Eliminate all laws or procedures which interfere with the operation of the Communist apparatus.

34. Eliminate the House Committee on Un-American Activities.

35. Discredit and eventually dismantle the FBI.

36. Infiltrate and gain control of more unions.

37. Infiltrate and gain control of big business.

Where’s #1-38 and a reference to the source? Those are what’s going on.

FIFY

But, even with that, it won't help. I haven't watched it other than Thanksgiving/Christmas holidays (nothing better to do when at family functions) and the Super Bowl (mostly for the advertisements) since high school.

The NFL can go bankrupt and disappear for all I care, won't change my life for the better or worse if it did happen.

Actually, I'll take that back. It will make my life better. I won't have to listen to the hasbeen highschool hero's that never could have been relive the games of the day at work. It'll make meetings much more enjoyable. It's amazing that 90% of the people that LOVE football, can quote you any stats for any particular player in the NFL, but can't learn all the details of their assigned job/machine to be able to make a significant impact on the company they work for. Telling, isn't it?

The source is a book "The Naked Communist". Apparently it was even submitted to Congress in 1963.

Here's a good summation,

http://www.rense.com/general32/americ.htm

40-42 have been happening since the mid 60s as well

40. Discredit the family as an institution. Encourage promiscuity and easy divorce.

41. Emphasize the need to raise children away from the negative influence of parents. Attribute prejudices, mental blocks and retarding of children to suppressive influence of parents.

42. Create the impression that violence and insurrection are legitimate aspects of the American tradition; that students and special-interest groups should rise up and use "united force" to solve economic, political or social problems.

I apologize for just now seeing your post. So, I'm a troll?!? That is comical. You are embarrassing yourself. Do you even know what it means to "troll"? Doubtful so, let me spell out the situation for you slooooowly; you made an absurd assertion. To illustrate absurdity, I too was absurd.

You have a distinguished record on here of making inflamatory and idiotic comments. Coming from you, I will wear the "troll" label as a badge of honor. From now on, try stringing together a cogent thought and this sort of humiliation will happen to you less and less.
