The New Woke V’PAC responds:
Mr. M …what makes you think that the NFL cares if you or I watch (or attend in person) their games?
In 2020, the NFL, its team owners and players, decided that it was both a very, very virtuous thing, and a smart business decision, to join with the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement, the all-in anti-America “Antifa” thing, and the Democratic Party, as “social justice warriors”.
And they (the NFL) went “all-in” themselves, supporting the “end police brutality toward Blacks”, “re-imagine” and “defund”police departments movement , and, above all, not-too-subtly, told their fans to ‘get on board’, or, ’take a hike’.
And the League didn’t want to be misunderstood. They tossed out their “strict rules on uniforms” (which, as noted, prohibited “decals’ of any kind, especially those which might honor police officers killed in the line of duty!).
Players, both Black and really virtuous White, eagerly slapped stickers on their helmets to pay honor to Black ‘victims’ of “murderous, racist” police officers!
They approved, and encouraged “social justice slogans” to be painted in the end zones of all the League’s teams.
The league proclaimed that season openers at the various venues would feature the playing of the “Black National Anthem” (for which players stood respectfully)…while players were not required to show any respect for “America’s National Anthem:”
The long-running effort to make the “Washington Football Team” drop its “Redskins” name finally was achieved…to the thundering applause of…WHO??
Face it, Mr. M, if you don’t think this is a great and wonderful thing the National Football League is doing…and now taking on those evil people who support anti-LGBTQ groups…you are a RACIST, and a “Homophobe”, and, possibly, a “sexist”.
So, be a good sport, and check your favorite player’s “preferred pronoun”! (Maybe the players will put their pronouns on the back of their jerseys.) dlh
