As Sports Media Cheers On Athlete
Boycotts, Fans Will Walk Away

Original Article

It is sometimes underappreciated how new professional sports is as a dominant cultural phenomenon. For the vast majority of human history, sports has been overwhelmingly played by amateurs. And even in America, it is only in the past fifty years that this professionalized version of sport became a route to wealth. Baseball, which has the longest professional sports history in the United States, illustrates this: the average MLB salary is up an inflation-adjusted 3,000 percent since the late 1960s. Professional sports only became big money in the era of television, as a form of mass entertainment

We all ready have and there is nothing you can do to get us to come back. You have killed the goose who laid the golden eggs. We are walking away, we are not looking back and frankly you will not be missed.

Wonder if the car/truck advertisers will want a refund. Don't think the beer companies are real happy with the shut down either.

Professional athletes in "team" sports have become mercenaries since the advent of free agency and it is just getting worse. Why would a player in a small market city where the atmosphere in the club house is great and the fans are fantastic and loyal leave that team for $13mm per year v.s. the $12mm per year offered on their renewal. When is enough enough for playing a game? There is no loyalty to those who cheered for you and wore your jersey. It's all about money and to hell with the fans that pay for it all. I am done. As much of a baseball fan as I am, I have not watched more than a couple innings this year and do not have any plans to come back. I no longer have a desire to spend my time watching over paid spoiled brats play a game. And Lebron can stick it where the sun don't shine!

I'm 69. When I was about 5, my baseball loving grandfather introduced me to the sport. I fell in love with it and followed it devotedly. I still love baseball. There's nothing better than to sit in the stands with some nachos and big glass of lemonade and cheer for the team. But now, I will transfer my love to the local minor league team. The major leagues have finally lost me. They lost my baseball loving brother in 1994 with the strike, but not me. This is the final straw. I will not be told I am a racist. I will not be lectured to by a bunch of millionaires. I. Have. Had. It.

With the loss of revenue from COVID 19 lockdowns, NHL SJW's picked a time to turn their backs on fans when the league will be struggling to recover. Having to win back fans for the next season will only make this more difficult. Living in NC, there have been a few heinous black on white murders in the last week or so, but the hockey team and NHL have said nothing about these. Is BLM the hill you want to make your final stand on? I watched the NHL playoffs up until now. I can no longer support them because they have become a political movement, not a professional sports league. Buh-bye!

They are truly a bunch of spoiled brats who don't have a backup plan and all they can do is throw a ball at a hoop. Now they are ruining what tiny mystique they had—— too bad you guys didn't bother to learn to read. They are thugs with a bunch of babies and baby mamas. I don't think my opinion could be much lower, but you all go ahead and see if you can make your fans think less of you.

At issue is the over use of force. Gun violence and deaths in Chicago each weekend evidently don't matter. So now it is about anyone who disagrees with what LeBron James or Kapernick says or YOU don't matter. There has been an awakening. Have you felt it?

I would like all professional sports to take the year off. Don't tell me about how you feel "used" by the fans. Don't tell me about how you feel for the little people so troubled by the real world. Above all, don't tell me that you don't like what this country stands for, since you, of all people, can live anywhere else in the world you please.

FTA: And what this pandemic has taught us is that in a world of vast amounts of entertainment, if the entertainment isn’t there, humanity will go elsewhere. It's been said that the OJ trial lead the to the demise of daytime Soaps. Soaps were pre-empted for months and fans fell out of the habit of watching. Same could be said for professional sports, after months without NBA, NHL, MLB, many fans realized there was more to life than sitting in front of the TV for hours. Once the games began again, the leagues needed to entice their fans back, instead they chose in-your-face BLM antics.

All pro athletes have been pampered and babied since they were 5 years old. They have always been spoiled brats with grown ups hanging on to them hoping to ride on their shirt tails to fame and fortune. The love of money has ruined all pro sports. Money gave them even more power and thus they began to only think of only themselves and not the fans. No more pretending they liked us peons. For me, it was first the NBA. They went from Jerry West and Oscar Robertson to the freaks that play now. Yes, these people are FREAKS. Then the NFL fell on it's knees and now can't get back up. Just a bunch of bullies. Now my beloved baseball has jumped the shark. They are a bunch of disgusting whiny little brats. All of them have tons of money in their twenties, and yet never seem to have enough brains to get thru one day without wanting more. Money is great but the love of money will ruin a person, a sport, and a Nation. This will all continue as long as fans keep watching. Sad but true.

Watched a lovely game of Japanese baseball on FTF network webcast to my Samsung TV. What a delightful event. The Buffaloes versus the Marines. Utterly humble and respectful players. Good natured fans. And the game moved right along. Highly recommended.

Yesterday, a TV was set to ESPN in a restaurant. There was no sound, but 2 young women were being interviewed, one bLACK and one white. Bold print on their black shirts said 'Arrest The Police'. There were smaller letters under that but covered by the ESPN banner. When schools are forbidding slogans on students' shirts, pro-sports mashes our faces in it.

The number of blacks killed by other blacks far exceeds the number killed by police. More whites are killed by police every year than blacks, and when you adjust for the population, there is no significant statistical difference. Whites, however, are disproportionately killed by blacks-- a very lopsided disproportion. In other words, despite all the clenched fists and kneeling through the national anthem-- there is no real issue of police murdering blacks. And the actual facts are not surprising when you consider that almost every big city mayor is black, has a black chief of police, and a majority minority police force. It has all gotten so bizarrely irrational that now when a black man shoots himself-- puts a gun to his head and shoots himself publicly-- blacks go on a looting riot.

If this were really about the over-use of force by police on primarily black people, then there could be a conversation and plan, but it's NOT. It's about all of us electing one exceptional man to be our president, and the subsequent (temporary?) derailment of the communist progression in grooming, tearing down, and destroying Americans and America. That is it. Don't be fooled by the disguise of race issue. If they cared about race they wouldn't have murdered David Dorn. They wouldn't be burning black-owned businesses and so on. It's not about race.

FTA: "ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman are already calling the NFL to boycott. To what end? " I am eager to hear the expert commentary by Stephen and Max as they report on the intricacies of chess, checkers and Pokemon. Should give them something to do, or they can take woke classes online originating from their community college.

I have to agree with Seinfeld you're cheering for laundry. Gotta love it. I stopped viewing the NFL going on five seasons I couldn't tell you who the champion of the Super Bowl is. The NBA I quit over three decades ago too much blackness and showboating for me and they have their mouthy white hating African warlord Lebron James. Now my beloved MLB just stepped over the line with their BLM cop hating, cop killing mantra while hating the American flag and anthem after being as American as apple pie. I'm over 70 and I never thought I would see my favorite sport die in my lifetime. I'm just walking away.

The irony of this is riveting. Their only job as sports players is to play sports so people can watch. But what do they do? They REFUSE to do the very thing that attracts fans and generates money, and this refusal is based on asinine opinions that will make most fans NEVER want to watch them again. So not only are they not "winning" today (by boycotting their games), but they're also killing their profession and, of course, any hope of a future in that profession, too. Perhaps this is the kind of logic you get when you believe your own hype and think that people can't live without you.

Is there nothing in their contracts about actually having to work to get paid? Also, is their no conduct clause in their contracts? If what they are doing is materially harming the team and the sport, can they not be penalized? Who holds the purse strings? I am guessing a bunch of terrified rich white men who don't wanna be called racists. If just one owner had a spine and would stop these entitled puppets' paychecks, fine them heavily, how fast these high rollers get back to dribbling balls and swinging bats? But in the end, for many of us, the damage is done. You could not pay me enough to watch pro or really even college sports of any kind now. They are almost all overhyped, overcompensated dunderheads.

Imagine any large business or corporation openly doing everything to drive their customers away. That's what MLB is doing. The NBA is doing it too, but to be truthful, the audience for that sport is mostly black anyway, and I don't give a damn about that sport. I'm sure the NFL is just waiting until the season starts to throw their two cents in as well. Now imagine how the person that pays your salary at your ordinary company would react if you said, "I'm not working today because someone I didn't know was killed by a cop." Your either fired, on PTO, or unpaid time off. I love watching baseball. Go to spring training, and several games a year, but I'll be damned if a bunch of grossly overpaid kids are going to change my mind about an obvious lawful police shooting. Take your tantrums back to your mansions, and sulk.

So true. Baseball is already on life support with no fans, canceled games resulting in double headers no one has time to watch and a drastically shortened season. When will sports executives and players, businesses and even politicians learn that the media does not speak for the majority of Americans. People watch sports to get away from politics. It used to be something everyone could enjoy. Now it is only for the "woke."

I for one am done watching or supporting any professional sports franchise that openly supports the radical Black Lives Matter movement. They like so many others has chosen to castigate and label all police officers as racists that purposely target black men to gun down. Nothing could be further from the truth. If black lives really mattered to these gullible fools don't you think they'd being doing something about the black lives being lost in Chicago every day? There is no doubt there is an infinitesimal number of those wearing the badge that shouldn't be in the profession and need to be drummed out of their agencies. However, the same can be said for professional sports teams that condone or turn a blind eye to misconduct by their athletes. How many wife beating thugs are harbored by the NFL? How many sign stealing cheaters are among MLB clubs, and how many illegal drugs users found a home in the NBA? I choose to support the THIN BLUE LINE, not a bunch of overpaid jocks.

All the athletes walking out on games, kneeling for the National Anthem and other protest efforts should be ashamed of themselves. They had the money and talents to help the inner city kids instead of making empty gestures about 'systemic racism' that doesn't exist. The athletes could have helped with the problem, but they chose to refuse to play in a sport, make insincere statements. Who cares if they don't play with exorbitant pay that lower income people will never see live and they sportsmen don't care.

Paris climate treaty

Here we are in the midst of a once-in-a-half-century pandemic, with the economy flattened, millions of people unemployed, and unrest on the streets of our cities. And President-elect Joe Biden says that one of his highest priorities as president will be to reenter the Paris climate accord. President Trump kept his "put America first" promise and pulled the United States out of this Obama-era treaty. Biden wants us back in. Why? Paris is an unmitigated failure. You don't have to take my word for it. National Geographic, a supporter of climate change action, recently ran the numbers and admitted in its recent headline: "Most countries aren't hitting 2030 climate goals."

A set of demands from teachers unions in July, which addressed how to safely reopen schools amid a pandemic, was criticized by The Wall Street Journal editorial board as “political extortion.” The board argued that unions were taking advantage of a health crisis to advance their own ideological agendas and to eliminate competition from charter schools.

Why do we do this to ourselves every four years? We talk incessantly about the latest poll in Florida and Michigan and Pennsylvania and Arizona until we are blue in the face. Then they turn out to be wildly wrong. When will we ever learn? It reminds me of that old saying which I think was from Einstein, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.” Polling, at least the old-school style, is over. Done. I don’t need to go through a long list of reasons why nobody should take pollsters seriously anymore, but a few data points are instructive.
Implications of the Flynn Pardon 11 replies

President Trump granted a pardon to Michael Flynn, his former national-security adviser, today. Flynn had pled guilty to lying to FBI agents about conversations, during the 2016 transition, with the Russian ambassador about sanctions. Flynn’s pardon should bring to an end one gross violation of the Constitution’s separation of powers, even as it gives rise to groundless accusations of another. Although Flynn had pled guilty, the circumstances of the case had raised serious concerns about whether the government had proceeded properly. The FBI, for example, questioned Flynn even though it did not appear he had violated any law. In May, Attorney General William Barr ordered the case dropped.

The first Thanksgiving in the New World was celebrated in 1621, nearly a year after the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth. In 1789, George Washington became the first of many US presidents to formally proclaim a day of “public thanksgiving and prayer”: I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the beneficent author of all the good that was, that is, or that will be; that we may then all unite in rendering unto Him

Minnesota is one of a number of states that are living under what amounts to martial law. Our proto-fascist dictator Tim Walz, in his latest edict, purports to ban traditional Thanksgiving get-togethers: Saturday, Nov. 21 through Friday, Dec. 18, Executive Order 20-99 requires all Minnesotans to: * Limit social gatherings to one household. * Not gather outside of your household. * Postpone all celebrations, events, receptions, and parties, including any social gatherings for weddings and funerals. So it is “illegal” for me to invite any of my four kids to Thanksgiving dinner.

Former President Barack Obama in an appearance on "The Breakfast Club" radio show on Wednesday said that attacks by Georgia Sen. Kelly Loeffler against her runoff opponent Raphael Warnock over his connection with Rev. Jeremiah Wright are "crazy stuff" as he defended Wright as a "supremely gifted preacher." Obama appeared on the popular radio show and podcast to promote his book "A Promised Land," which details much of his presidency, including his 2008 presidential campaign during which his connection to Wright became an issue. Wright has a history of controversial comments, including a sermon in which he said "God damn America" when referencing racial injustice.

The U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday night blocked New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo from reimposing strict attendance caps at worship services in areas hit hard by the novel coronavirus. The court ruled 5-4 to bar Cuomo from enforcing his Oct. 6 “Cluster Initiative” against houses of worship that sued to challenge the restrictions. The order was also the first in which Justice Amy Coney Barrett played a decisive role. Barrett, who was President Trump's third Supreme Court nominee, joined the court Oct. 27, after winning Senate confirmation following the Sept. 18 death of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

Kurt Contracts COVID And Antics Ensue I’m fine. Irina’s fine, though she had it worse than me. How would I describe it? Well, like a middling head cold. I felt sniffley and was coughing one day, so I called a doctor client and got a 30-minute test.

Are furbished product is seldom as desirable as a brand-new one. Joe Biden must be assuming Americans can’t tell the difference. Even as President Trump battles uphill to overturn the results of the recent presidential election, faces familiar during the earlier Age of Obama are reappearing in President-elect-apparent Biden’s pantheon of power. The looming Biden era promises to be Obama 3.0 — Hillary Clinton in 2016 was to be Obama 2.0, but new models don’t always live up to the original (see Windows Vista). Jen Psaki, communications director for the Obama White House and now filling a similar role during the nomination process, describes the emerging Biden brand:

As we reported two days ago, Joe Biden completely made no sense when he was trying to explain the Wuhan coronavirus relief bill. It was really bad and it explains why they’re afraid to have him deliver an address to Congress or do any kind of a real solo press conference, because at this point they have to be afraid this is all going to fall apart if he does anything live and this all becomes too obvious to the American people. But there’s only so long that they can hold this off. And it’s getting worse, as video today revealed. Biden was holding an event to announce the nomination

Democrat Senator Joe Manchin (WV) appears to have started to shift his views on the filibuster with remarks that he made on two news shows on Sunday morning.The shift from Manchin comes after he has repeatedly stated that he would not vote to end the filibuster, despite pressure from the far-Left. During the interviews on Sunday, Manchin repeatedly claimed that he was not open to ending the filibuster because he did not want to strip the minority party of their power in the Senate, but signaled that he was open to changing it.Fox News host Chris Wallace asked Manchin if he would consider “reforming the filibuster” if “Republicans

In an open letter released Sunday, Pro-Life Evangelicals for Biden urged him to “honor his commitment” and include the Hyde Amendment in Democrats’ $1.9 trillion COVID-19 spending package, writing “we feel used and betrayed.” The letter states: We are very disappointed about the COVID-19 relief package’s exclusion of the Hyde Amendment, a longstanding bipartisan policy that prevents taxpayer funding for abortion.

If you had any doubts that Meghan Markle is a manipulative piece of work, her bombshell Oprah interview Sunday night dumping on the British monarchy would set you straight. Prince Harry’s American wife accused his family of hateful racism against her baby, claimed they refused to protect her and drove her to the point of suicide.She made the incendiary and implausible charge that when she was pregnant with Archie, the royal family decreed that her unborn son would be denied the title of “prince” because her mixed race meant he might have dark skin.

Nancy Pelosi’s top priority is to turn America into a one-party nation ruled by Democrats. Her bill HR 1 trashes the U.S. Constitution in an attempt to rig the system and make it virtually impossible to elect a Republican president or Congress again. It’s a power grab. The bill eviscerates state voting laws and forces all the states to conform to a set of rules that includes automatic voter registration. Anyone who goes to a DMV or applies for food stamps, Medicaid or other social services, or attends a public college will be automatically enrolled to vote. Noncitizens are obligated to identify themselves and opt out,

President Biden on Monday seemed to forget Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin’s name at a White House event—calling the Pentagon chief “the guy who runs that outfit over there.” Biden was announcing the nomination of two female generals to lead US military combatant commands. “And I want to thank the sec—the, the, ah former general. I keep calling him general, but my, my—the guy who runs that outfit over there,” Biden said.(Snip) Earlier at the event, Biden mentioned the Defense Department leader by his name, “Secretary Austin,” while appearing to read from a teleprompter.

The Royal Family was left reeling this morning after Meghan Markle tearfully revealed that the stress of royal life made her suicidal when she was five months pregnant, claimed Archie was denied the title of prince because he is mixed-race and said Kate Middleton made her cry before she married Harry in a bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey.The couple also chose to reveal that they are having a baby girl to the tens of millions of people watching the CBS show broadcast in the US before accusing the Royal Family of racism and revealing the deep rift 'Megxit' has caused with Prince Charles and Prince William.

I’m probably second to none in my dislike for Meghan Markle. There’s something unattractive about a mature woman marrying into the British Royal family with one of the world’s most expensive weddings, hanging out with the Queen, living in insane luxury…and then whining non-stop about the horror of her life. There’s something even less appealing when that woman accuses the Royal family of race hatred. And the problem is that, when it comes to that left-wing diva, Meghan Markle, it’s hard to believe most of what she says. After weeks of hype, CBS finally televised Meghan Markle and Prince Harry’s interview with Oprah.

Without question, the vast majority of Americans who support former President Donald Trump were angry and frustrated throughout 2020 passed with barely a mention of then-U.S. Attorney John Durham’s criminal investigation into the FBI’s fraudulent “Russiagate” counterterrorism operation directed at his 2016 campaign.In the weeks before the November election, word got out that then-Attorney General William Barr wasn’t going to announce any indictments or even a report on Durham’s investigation because he did not want to influence the outcome.So far, in fact, the only indictment to come out of the Durham probe is that of former FBI lawyer Kevin Clinesmith, who essentially got a slap on the wrist

Rep. Steve Cohen vowed to renew the push to remove former FBI Director J. Edgar Hoover’s name from the bureau’s downtown Washington headquarters, according to an interview released Monday. Appearing on Yahoo! News’ Skullduggery podcast, the Tennessee Democrat said the effort is getting a fresh look after the release of a new movie highlighting the FBI’s secret program to discredit civil rights activists. The Washington Times in 2019 first reported Democrats’ bid to strip the longtime FBI director’s name from the bureau’s headquarters. Mr. Cohen said the impetus to revive the bid is the new movie, “Judas and the Black Messiah.” The movie details

“There must have been a moment, at the beginning, when we could have said –-no. But somehow we missed it.” Tom Stoppard The millions of Americans who were paying attention throughout the 2020 election campaign all became painfully aware of the fact that Joe Biden’s cognitive abilities were slipping and slipping fast. His wife, as the person closest to him, should have been the one to call the campaign quits in order to reduce stress on the man. Instead, apparently so anxious to become the First Lady by any means necessary, Mrs. Biden continued to push her failing husband’s campaign forward as if he were mentally qualified.
