The NFl, not content to simply lose their fans and their ratings, has decided to strongarm their owners into donating $100 million to player-endorsed charities.
They do know it is not charity if it’s forced, right?
The NFL’s sellout to their anthem-protesting players is starting to look a lot more like a buyout. According to ESPN, the league will offer nearly $100 million to causes designed to promote “social justice change.”
In a move unlike anything seen from a major American sports league, the league will offer the money in hopes that it will end the ratings-killing protest movement begun by Colin Kaepernick in the preseason of 2016.
According to ESPN: National funding would be allocated accordingly: 25 percent to the United Negro College Fund, 25 percent to Dream Corps and 50 percent to the Players Coalition, which has filed 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) paperwork for nonprofit status as a fiscally sponsored project. This week, the coalition hired the Hopewell Fund to oversee and advise the group, which hopes to work with grassroots and nonprofit organizations in its areas of focus.
There is no doubt in my mind the NFL will be funnelling some of this money to the Black Lives Matter terror group. It won’t be listed on the press release, but I’ll bet my house it’s on the list. F**k the NFL, and f**k their social justice warrioring.
