Businesses To Super Bowl: “Drop Dead”

For those of you, like me, who despise the NFL, this may be welcome news to you. Many big-name businesses are deciding against purchasing Super Bowl ads this year; instead, they’re dumping their money into… Chinese Wuhan Virus awareness?

Oh well, anything that hastens the demise of the NFL is fine by me.

Budweiser is the latest corporation to back out of advertising during this year’s broadcast, choosing instead to join a public awareness campaign for the COVID-19 vaccine. For the first time in 37 years, the company won’t air its game-stealing commercials, Anheuser-Busch, which owns Budweiser, announced Monday.

Other Super Bowl commercial giants such as Pepsi, Coke and Hyundai will also take a step back from this year’s game, reallocating their funds in light of the pandemic. Pepsi, for instance, will focus primarily on its halftime show.

Don’t let Big Business fool you; this has little to do with Chinese Wuhan Virus messaging, and everything to do with the Woke Twitter Addicts. None of these businesses want to be canceled, so they’re all backing off.

“There is trepidation around Super Bowl advertising this year,” Bill Oberlander, co-founder and executive creative of ad agency Oberlander recently told The Post. “For the Super Bowl, you generally go big or go home. I think brands are going home rather than spending tens of millions of dollars and not getting it right. They’re saying, ‘Let’s wait until this sh*t storm clears.’”

Gillette lost $8 billion in ad revenue after they produced that awful “Toxic Masculinity” ad, and ensured I would never buy any of their products again. These CEOs are scared to death of the Woke Twitter Mobs, so many are saying it’s not worth the rick. They’re right, and I applaud them for shunning the NFL.

Just Another Day In The NFL

Two fine, upstanding NFL players have been arrested for allegedly conducting an armed robbery during a Florida house party. DeAndre Baker of the New York Giants and Seattle Seahawks cornerback Quinton Dunbar turned themselves in Saturday.

NFL player DeAndre Baker turned himself in to authorities on Saturday on charges of armed robbery, according to jail records and his attorney.

Baker, a New York Giants cornerback, and Seattle Seahawks player Quinton Dunbar were accused of robbing guests at gunpoint at a house party near Miami on Wednesday, according to arrest warrants issued on Thursday by police in Miramar, Florida.

Online records showed Baker, 22, was booked into the Broward County Jail on four counts of armed robbery using a firearm and four counts of aggravated assault with a firearm. (H/T – RedneckGeezer)

While there are despicable thugs in every line of work, the NFL seems to have more than its fair share. If the evidence supports the victims’ story, I hope these two spend the rest of their lives in prison.

Thank You China!

ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit has stated he believes the NFL and college football will cancel their 2020 seasons due to the Wuhan Virus. Oh Lord, please let this be true!

ESPN analyst Kirk Herbstreit says that he would be “shocked” if the NFL or college football, plays a single game in 2020.

“I’ll be shocked if we have NFL football this fall, if we have college football. I’ll be so surprised if that happens,” the College Gameday host said, according to TMZ.

“Just because from what I understand, people that I listen to, you’re 12 to 18 months from a [coronavirus] vaccine. I don’t know how you let these guys go into locker rooms and let stadiums be filled up and how you can play ball. I just don’t know how you can do it with the optics of it,” Herbstreit continued.

Herbstreit reminded his audience that it takes time to gear up and plan for a season of games. “You don’t all of the sudden come up with something in July or August,” he said, noting that it takes many months in advance to plan a season.

Look, I’ve already effectively lost the NHL, and Kyle and Erik lost their lacrosse seasons, so the least I could get is seeing the NFL skip a season, too.

Embargo On!

This will, hopefully, be the only NFL post I make all year. Don’t get me wrong, I am still heavily invested in never watching another second of the NFL, but this story had to be addressed.

There are very few occupations more useless than sports reporting. Grown, usually old men getting excited about sports is kind of a pathetic endeavor. Since their lives have no meaning, they find acceptance by bashing people with whom they disagree. To wit…

NBC Sports Pro Football Talk turned into a venue for bashing Donald Trump and conservatives when Mike Florio and Chris Simms said they had to expose “hypocritical sports fans” and media personalities.

At issue was the friction between the NFL Players Coalition and Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross, who hosted a fundraiser for the Republican president. Players Coalition members pressured Ross to step down from a social justice working group due to his fundraising efforts.

Almost every owner in the NFL is a rabid leftist who pours tons of money into Democrat coffers, yet these empty talking heads only speak up when a conservative holds a fundraiser. Funny how that works.

“I would love to stick to sports. Some times politics gets yanked onto sports,” Mr. Florio said. “We hear all the time, players and reporters, stick to sports. Well, is it fair, Chris, to turn it around on the owners and tell them to stick to sports? Stephen Ross isn’t sticking to sports when he decided to host a $100,000, up to $250,000 per person fundraiser for the president. That’s not sticking to sports. But nobody ever says that he should stick to sports.”

“He’s rich and he’s white,” Mr. Simms said of Ross.

So are you, Simms, you douchebag. You’re rich, and you’re the whitest thing I have ever seen. Powder looks like Billy Dee Williams standing next to you.

Look, I understand millionaire leftists hate themselves for their white privilege, but it’s ridiculously hypocritical to call out someone who is in your own tax bracket. The difference between Florio, Simms and most of the 2020 Democratic candidates is some people actually care what the candidates think.

Bail To The Redskins

Meet Montae Nicholson of the NFL’s Washington Redskins.

Like many NFL players, Montae is a thug who hates the po-po. Of course, the question remains; if you hate cops so much, why do you spend so much time around them?

Safety Montae M. Nicholson, 23, of Ashburn, was charged with assault and battery and drunk in public following the incident. Another suspect, Sydney A. Maggiore, 24, of Vienna, was reportedly with Nicholson at the scene. She has been charged with malicious wounding and assault and battery.

According to the Loudoun County Sheriff’s Office, deputies responded to the 20400 block of Exchange Street shortly before 2 a.m. for a report of a fight.

The reported victims, an adult male and adult female, were located at the scene. They were allegedly assaulted by Nicholson and Maggiore. An investigation determined Nicholson assaulted the male victim, while Maggiore assaulted both the male and female victims. Maggiore is believed to have struck the female victim with a bottle.

Such a waste. I heard Montae was just turning his life around.

Guaranteed To Make You Smile

The NFL’s ratings have risen a bit this season, but not nearly enough to save the league’s plummeting revenue stream. Hopefully, this trend will continue and the NFL will cease to exist in five years.

For the TV industry, this National Football League season has brought good news and bad news.

The good: Ratings for professional football – the most valuable type of TV programming – are up 5 percent compared with last year. NFL broadcasts are averaging 15.8 million viewers this season, boosted by record-high scoring and more competitive games.

The problem is, advertisers typically buy commercial time before the season starts and negotiate ad prices based on ratings from the previous year, and last year’s ratings were down 10 percent from 2016-17. As a result, ad revenue for NFL broadcasters like CBS Corp., Comcast Corp.’s NBC, Walt Disney Co.’s ESPN and 21st Century Fox Inc. fell 19 percent in the first two months of the season.

While I cannot explain the rise in the NFL’s ratings – seriously, who voluntarily watches athletes who hate America? – the depleted revenue is probably the more important indicator. People are tired of Hollywood, tired of the media, and tired of political athletes.

Bye, Eagles, Bye

The National Football League’s 2018 season opened Thursday night, and thankfully, millions of fans decided to ignore the game. The plummeting ratings were befitting the Philadelphia Eagles; a team full of racists and cop-hating social justice warriors.

With a 13.4/5 in the metered markets, the post-midnight ending game is down 8% from last year’s kickoff of September 7, 2017. In one of the lowest season openers ratingswise and facing portions of a cable news-covered rally by a very NFL critical President Donald Trump, last night’s game is not only down from last year, but 2016, 2015 and 2014 – all of which saw successive declines.

To add more injury to that, the 2017 8:42 PM ET-starting season opener between the victorious Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots ended up with a weak 7.7/29 rating among adults 18-49 and 21.8 million viewers. That was a double digit decline from 2016 and the worst total audience an opening game had since 2009.(H/TAOSHQ)

From a ratings standpoint, Thursday night’s event was the least watched game since 2009. I’m sure the league’s inaction regarding the anthem protests and Nike’s endorsement deal with Colon Kaepernick played a significant role. The NFL is dying – although a little too slowly for my tastes – and I will be more than happy to shovel dirt on its grave.

A Collusion Case We Can All Support

While the leftist media continues to drool over the alleged Trump-Russia collusion nothingburger, another collusion case is being fought between cop-hating, sub-par quarterback Colin Kaepernick and the National Football League.

The case, if some pundits are correct, could spell the beginning of the end of the NFL; a league which is already hemorrhaging fans and viewers.

In a landmark ruling that substantially alters the complexion of the collusion grievance brought by Colin Kaepernick, arbitrator Stephen Burbank has denied the NFL’s request for summary judgment. Burbank’s ruling means that, absent a negotiated settlement between Kaepernick and the NFL, Kaepernick’s grievance will proceed to a trial-like hearing before Burbank later this year. Burbank’s ruling also indicates that all 32 teams remain parties in the grievance. This is a subtle but potentially groundbreaking point since if Burbank finds that 14 or more teams engaged in collusion, the NFLPA could acquire the option of terminating the collective bargaining agreement.

Wow, I think I just had my first real orgasm.

The “genuine issue” is whether Kaepernick has been victimized by collusion, which in this context refers to two or more teams, or the league and at least one team, conspiring to deprive Kaepernick of his collectively bargained right to sign with a team. Kaepernick, who earlier in his career led the 49ers to a division championship and a Super Bowl appearance, contends that teams have conspired to keep him out of the NFL. They have allegedly done so on account of the controversy surrounding his kneeling during the playing of the national anthem.

Kaepernick’s claim is ridiculous. The Denver Broncos offered Kaepernick a contract after he was released by San Francisco, and he declined, claiming the $7 million contract was not enough. Additionally, there are many NFL players who continue to take a knee during the National Anthem, while others raise Black Power fists. These players are still gainfully employed.

A key element of Kaepernick’s argument is that owners are fearful about the capacity and the willingness of President Donald Trump—an ardent critic of Kaepernick and of other players who kneel during the anthem—to damage the league’s business and legal interests.

Oh, I get it; the cops-as-pigs socks, the kneeling, and the Black Power fists are all Donald Trump’s fault. The fact of the matter is the NFL’s wounds have all been self-inflicted, and it is my sincere hope Colin Kaepernick’s collusion case forces the National Football League to bleed out.

Failing Sports League Bans Kneeling

The NFL, a league which lost my support, money, and viewership two years ago, has officially banned kneeling during the National Anthem. The owners approved the measure in a desperate attempt to regain relevance.

NFL owners have unanimously approved a new national anthem policy that requires players to stand if they are on the field during the performance but gives them the option to remain in the locker room if they prefer, it was announced Wednesday.

The policy subjects teams to a fine if a player or any other team personnel do not show respect for the anthem. That includes any attempt to sit or kneel, as dozens of players have done during the past two seasons to protest racial inequality and police brutality. Those teams also will have the option to fine any team personnel, including players, for the infraction.

I guess last year’s severe ratings drop hit a little too close to home.

For me, this is too little, too late, especially since the NFL gives the players an out by having them stay in the locker room. So instead of kneeling, the networks will make a big deal of who stayed in the locker room. F**k them and everyone who look like them.

NFL To Veterans: Drop Dead

AMVETS, a national veterans organization, spent $30,000 on an advertisement which was to be placed into the Super Bowl LII program. The NFL, “which wholeheartedly supports our troops,” refused to accept the ad.

AMVETS officials are decrying “corporate censorship” from the National Football League for their decision not to run an ad in their Super Bowl program which responds to league players’ decision to kneel for the national anthem in protest of national equality issues.

The ad features the tag “#PleaseStand” with a picture of service members saluting the American flag and information on how to donate to the organization. Group leaders said NFL officials refused to include the ad in their Super Bowl publication, but did not issue a reason why.

Maybe because the NFL is chock full of anti-American, anti-military, anti-police leftists?

In a statement, NFL Vice President of Communications Brian McCarthy said the Super Bowl game program “is designed for fans to commemorate and celebrate the game, players, teams and the Super Bowl. It’s never been a place for advertising that could be considered by some as a political statement.”

Yes, the NFL has a strict policy against political statements… unless they include kneeling during the National Anthem or raising the Black Power fist.

I realize this will fall on deaf ears, but the majority of NFL owners, administrators, and players hate this country, hate the military, and hate the police. The NFL does not deserve your support on Super Bowl Sunday, or any other day of the year.
