Every Defiant Network Still Airing NFL Games Blindsided By Devastating News – Should’ve Listened To Trump

It’s working!

Published

on

It’s been a long accepted fact that you shouldn’t bite the hand that feeds you because if you do, they might not want to come back. In other words, if someone is funneling you resources, you should treat them nicely. This is apparently a concept that’s easy to forget if you play for the National Football League since they are doing just that.

The former fans of the NFL have completely severed ties this year because of the controversial National Anthem protest that the players are insistent on being involved in. Even though the league had the chance to stop it by just enforcing the laws that they already had on the books, they decided not to, and they’re paying the price.

Reports are now reflecting a decline in viewers to the tune of over 1 million viewers just from the 2016 season until now. This has put the NFL’s television partners in a big money bind. The most recent estimates state that the league’s anthem stunt is losing broadcasters about 500 million dollars. According to the Conservative Tribune, they might be looking for a solution that the NFL won’t like:

“Declining NFL ratings are set to cost the league’s broadcast partner’s half a billion dollars this year alone, a new report reveals.

Outkick the Coverage, a website run by controversial sports radio host Clay Travis, notes that the NFL’s broadcasters — CBS, ESPN, Fox, and NBC — have already lost “several hundred million” this year in ad revenue alone.

The report says the decline ‘has the league’s top executives and television partners scrambling to figure out what went wrong. How did a league that was setting ratings records in 2015 suddenly see its audience fall by nearly 20 percent just two years later?

‘While much of the attention has focused on the protests, according to ongoing conversations with several people close to the league and its television partners over the past couple of months, the ratings decline that will cost the TV partners up to $500 million can actually be attributed to four primary factors,’ the report reads.”

Of course, everyone is desperate to blame anything and everything other than the anthem protest for the decline in viewership, including the timing of the games, and the fact that LA added extra teams. While factors like those might make a little bit of difference, they’re obviously a patsy.

If you know many football fans, you know that in the past, they rearrange their entire lives just to catch a game. And I’ve never seen anyone starting bonfires with their jerseys because new teams were added to the league. We all know exactly what is causing the problems, but the NFL bigwigs just don’t want to admit that American is that patriotic.

“Only one of those factors — and the last one in the article — are the national anthem protests. The others are (seriatim) the ‘decimation of the one Eastern kickoff window on Sundays,’ ‘bad football,’ and the two new teams in Los Angeles.

While the Rams are first in the NFC West, it’s not like they’re the most exciting team in the world. And then there’s the Chargers, who are only in playoff contention because of the horrible AFC and the plummeting leader of the Chargers’ division, the Kansas City Chiefs.

However, the protests still play a part in the decline.

‘While the protest has received the majority of the media attention and the league and TV partners definitely believe it’s an issue, they don’t believe the protest is the reason for the substantial drop in ratings by itself,’ the report reads.

However, “(t)here is agreement that the NFL needs to find a resolution to the protests,” the report reads.

The Outkick the Coverage piece comes one week after it was reported that the NFL had suffered a worse-than-usual ratings slump, going from 5.6-5.7 percent declines in the three weeks prior to a 6.3 percent year-over-year decline in week 11.

According to the New York Post, that took the NFL from 15.9 million viewers per game a year ago to 14.9 million this year, a decline of one million viewers.”

The new information about possible losses to the networks comes almost 3 months into an abysmal season, and the top topic of conversation among anyone still talking about the NFL are things like Marshawn Lynch’s refusal to stand for the National Anthem but standing for the Mexican anthem. At a time when we should be asking ourselves who we’re going to play in our fantasy lineup, we’re left fantasizing that Jerry Jones will be successful in dethroning Commissioner Goodell.

Football has always been successful because it gave people an escape from issues that weigh us down. Now that the players have made the executive decision to let their own political opinions tank their careers, and it’s no longer a carefree experience. This was obviously their decision to make, but since it’s now costing the league and broadcasters hundreds of millions of dollars, the protest will likely end one way or another, and it might take the entire industry with it.

NFL Legend John Elway Just ENDED ALL The Racist Player Protests Just Before Super Bowl

Published

on

As the current executive vice president of football operations and general manager of the Denver Broncos of the National Football League, John Elway knows a thing or two about football, sportsmanship, and respect.

He’s watched the sport he retired from in 1998 devolve into a national mockery, thanks to the sideline antics of ignorant athletes who intentionally disrespect the country before each game. This isn’t the league that Elway once played for and didn’t become the winningest quarterback in National Football League history, after 16 seasons and two Super Bowl championships because he was focused on protesting.

Protesting wasn’t popular in football when Elway was on the field. Players played the game, respected the country, the sport, franchise, and fans and went out to win for their team every game.

Now, working with the NFL in an executive capacity with the Denver Broncos, Elway has seen enough in this preseason and is putting an end to it. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell picked his side and told fans to be the tolerant ones, not the protesting athletes, but Elway has a different approach to the problem.

It’s been about a week since the debauchery began with players kneeling or sitting out the National Anthem. A Denver Bronco player wasn’t among those who disrespected our country, but the Colorado team’s linebacker, Brandon Marshall, did kneel last year for several games.

Elway has finally broken his silence on the matter and pointed out the one big problem with these protests which nobody has before.

247 Sports reports:

Asked Thursday about sitting or kneeling during the National Anthem — a trend started by Colin Kaepernick in 2016 and continuing this preseason — the Broncos’ general manager gave a strong, well-thought-out response.

The gist? He respects players’ beliefs and supports their rights, with the caveat being that it doesn’t hurt the team.

“We have not had a conversation with them and I think that my stance—I think everybody has the right to do what they wish to do and their beliefs are their beliefs. That’s why we live in this country and they have the right to display whatever they wish to display,” Elway said.

“I think one thing that where we stand and I can stand with the Broncos is that you know what, that’s OK, we’ll respect that and whatever you want to do is fine with us. But the bottom line is, that can’t get in the way of our main goal and that is to compete for World Championships. I just don’t want that pulling away from our team. Sometimes that can pull away because obviously it gets a lot of attention.”

Players’ protests are selfish since they hurt the team, franchise, and NFL which is something they should recognize considering that football is more than a game, it’s a business. However, this is a team sport and they are part something bigger than themselves and their cause.

The entire team wants to win what they were hired to play the sport to do, and one bad apple can derail everyone from what should be the common goal of a championship – not a political cause.

“The only thing I would say to our players is make sure it’s not hurting your teammates, right? Because if the questions and everything the tenor changes of what’s going on in these interviews and now you’re not talking about our next opponent but talking about what’s going on out in the world,” Elway explained in his interview.

“That’s not the best thing for our football team. My only advice—we tell our players, I respect where you stand, just when you’re doing anything just understand what it’s doing to the football team because I want all of these guys to understand that we’re football first and we want to win football games.”

Elway reiterated the fact that he completely respects people’s differences of opinions — we all do. All fans of the sport don’t care what a player’s personal politics are, or if they agree with them on 100% of the same issues. Fans just want to watch and enjoy the sport without it being politicized.

There’s a time, place, and respectable way to express your opinions and it’s often not on the job or in an arena like this. These players are part of a team first and if they protest and compromise the goal of the group in doing so, they should be punished for that.

BREAKING! After The NFL Trashed Veterans 2 Executives were Just FIRED For SICKENING Thing!!!

ROT IN PRISON!

Published

on

The National Football League is on a crash course for disaster that began at the start of the season. They’ve done everything they can disrespect America and our heroes and made it clear that they don’t plan to change that anytime soon. They were even given the chance to make it right and chose to trash veterans instead. Now, two top executives have just been fired for the absolutely sickening thing they did that they tried to hide.

It costs a lot of money to get a coveted advertisement spot for the most watched event of the year – the Super Bowl. Although rates are probably a little better for commercial spots this year, they still come at quite a price. The American Veterans group was willing and want to put up the cash for a short Super Bowl ad to send a message that is very important to them that would certainly be appreciated by every red-blooded American, even if they weren’t watching. It’s the remaining fans that needed to see what they had to say the most, but won’t for one disgusting reason.

Fox News reports:

The National Football League has rejected a Super Bowl advertisement from American Veterans urging people to stand for the national anthem.

The nation’s largest veterans service organization had been invited by the NFL to place an ad in the Super Bowl LII program. AMVET’s advertisement included a two-word message – “#PleaseStand.”

“It’s a simple, polite request that represents the sentiment of our membership, particularly those whose missing or paralyzed limbs preclude standing,” wrote National Commander Marion Polk in a letter to NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

American Veterans accused the NFL of outright censorship by rejecting the advertisement.

The NFL had their chance to prove they aren’t divisive and anti-American by allowing this simple yet profound commercial run. They even would have been paid to put it up but instead, it was more important for them to stick it to veterans and purposely disrespect our flag. While this is expected since they did that all season long and never tried to stop players from kneeling despite losing droves of fans, they should have made it right the best they could in the end.

“NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy defended the league’s decision to ban the American Veterans’ advertisement noting that the game day program ‘is designed for fans to commemorate and celebrate the game, players, teams and the Super Bowl,'” Fox News added.

“It’s never been a place for advertising that could be considered by some as a political statement,” McCarthy told Army Times.

Basically, the NFL is saying that to simply and kindly ask people to stand for the Star-Spangled Banner is the same as making a divisive political statement.

Hours after this came out it was learned what else the NFL was hiding, specifically two top execs at the NFL Network.

According to Breitbart:

Executive Producer of Original Content Michael Mandt and Coordinating Producer of Features Dan Dieffenbach have been ousted at the NFL Network, both having been allegedly caught up in sexual harassment investigations, according to reports.
NFL Network spokesman Alex Riethmiller reportedly informed Deadspin that the network had severed ties with the pair but did not offer further comment.

Deadspin also reported that the two had been on administrative leave since December. Both were let go as of January 19.

Mandt previously worked at ESPN and SyFy Channel, as well as AOL. Dieffenbach previously worked with Mandt in his Original Content Group.

The separations are part of a growing list of accusations of sexual harassment lodged against other network employees.

Awful Announcing reports:

This adds to the turnover at NFL Network. David Eaton, the VP of NFL Media, resigned last month after Deadspin pointed out his history of interacting with porn actresses and escorts on Twitter, while Heath Evans, Marshall Faulk, and Ike Taylor are all still suspended pending that sexual harassment investigation. The lawsuit from former NFLN stylist Jami Cantor that led to those analysts’ suspensions also implicated Donovan McNabb and Eric Davis, who had since moved on to ESPN (that network parted ways with them earlier this month), and former NFL Network executive Eric Weinberger, an executive producer at the network who oversaw their studio programming before he left to run the Bill Simmons Media Group and The Ringer in November 2015 (he’s since been suspended from his role there).

Just when you thought the NFL couldn’t get any worse, they outdo themselves. The need to get rid of a lot more executives than just these two, if there’s ever a chance of the league regaining fans – starting with the commissioner Roger Goodell who allowed these problems to persist unchecked all season long which destroyed the industry.

BREAKING! NFL Just Enraged Every Veteran In America With Super Bowl Ad – How Could They Do This?!

THEY WON’T RECOVER FROM THIS HUGE ‘F YOU’

Published

on

The worst season that the National Football League has ever seen is finally coming to an end. Rather than slipping into obscurity after having lost the majority of their fan base, they decided to stick it veterans, having saved their most disrespectful anti-American action to the bitter end. Their fate for the future of professional football had already been determined, but this just officially seals the deal that the league is done.

The National Football League has become a national disgrace starting at the top with who calls the shots and has perpetually refused to stop players from disrespecting our flag and country. The league got what they had coming to them when they didn’t get ahead of the issue and got behind it instead. The National Anthem protest that started last season with former 49ers player, Colin Kaepernick that many hoped would just fade away, did not. In fact, it spread like a virus, infecting every single team in the NFL. That “cancer” has now killed America’s former favorite sport and now they just doubled down on their disrespect with what the league just told a massive veterans’ group.

It costs a lot of money to get a coveted advertisement spot for the most watched event of the year – the Super Bowl. Although rates are probably a little better for commercial spots this year, they still come at quite a price. The American Veterans group was willing and want to put up the cash for a short Super Bowl ad to send a message that is very important to them that would certainly be appreciated by every red-blooded American, even if they weren’t watching.

Basically, the NFL is saying that to simply and kindly ask people to stand for the Star-Spangled Banner is the same as making a divisive political statement.

According to Army Times:

AMVETS National Commander Marion Polk said the issue is one of fairness and respect.

“Freedom of speech works both ways,” he said. “We respect the rights of those who choose to protest, as these rights are precisely what our members have fought — and in many cases died — for.

“But imposing corporate censorship to deny that same right to those veterans who have secured it for us all is reprehensible and totally beyond the pale.”

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.”

They noted that the program will include a similar ad from the Veterans of Foreign Wars that states simply “We Stand for Veterans.” McCarthy said AMVETS was asked to consider changing their ad to read “Please Stand for Our Veterans” but did not reply in time for production deadlines.

Although it wasn’t likely that too many freedom-loving Americans were going to watch the Super Bowl anyway, this pretty much seals the deal that those who may have, probably won’t now or ever again. The league can’t say that they are politically neutral and then decline an ad that simply asks people to stand, while there’s a really good chance there will be some anti-Trump undertones in their commercials and at their halftime show.
