Will the NFL’s Latest obnoxious decision be enough to make you skip the Superbowl this year?
The empty seats and plummeting ratings haven’t gotten their attention YET? Really? What in the HELL is it going to take? Or are they just that hell-bent on their own destruction?
The fans have been telling NFL management to ‘pick a side’. It’s safe to say this is NOT what they meant.
As it turns out, not only did the NFL choose their protesting players over their fans, they chose Soros over their fans.
The NFL recently agreed to spend nearly $90 million dollars over the next seven years, to various organizations connected with social justice causes. Several of those groups, have deep connections to billionaire liberal activist George Soros.
The NFL agreement with the players, which includes no requirement that the player protests end, will send cash to Soros-connected groups such as Dream Corps, Center for American Progress, and Campaign for Fair Sentencing.
Alright. That leads us to the obvious question: WTF is a ‘Dream Corps’?
Under an agreement with the Players Coalition, NFL owners plan to funnel tens of millions of dollars to the Dream Corps, a leftist advocacy group led by former Obama adviser Van Jones and linked to Mr. Soros, which has called for saving the Clean Power Plan, cutting the prison population by half and providing “sanctuary for all.”
The $89 million, seven-year deal also carves out millions of dollars for the Players Coalition, according to ESPN, which has been advised by Soros-funded groups such as the Campaign for Fair Sentencing of Youth and the Center for American Progress, a leader of the anti-Trump “resistance.”
As if we didn’t already have enough reasons to dislike Van Jones, now he’s helping destroy football, too.
This is a shameless attempt at weaponizing profits from ticket sales into their Leftist ‘Fundamentally Transforming America’ projects.
Don’t worry, they tell us. There’s been no ‘final decision yet’ where the money will wind up going.
Riiiiight. They’re SURE to come around. Maybe they’ll support a fallen police officers’ children’s fund or something, right?
No, and Hell no. But we’ll get back to that shortly.
Of course, just like Obama’s deal with Iran, the hostages (in this case, the owners, not the American taxpayer) pay the money up front, with no meaningful or enforceable commitment from the other side.
In fact, some players, who have called this extortion ‘not enough’ already plan to continue with their ‘protests’. No word yet though as to who these same players expect will pay their salaries once ticket sales and ratings evaporate completely.
It gets worse, though.
Where will that money be diverted from?
It will be siphoned off from other initiatives the league HAD been supporting.
“In the discussion that we had, Malcolm [Jenkins] conveyed to us—based on discussions that he had with the NFL—that the money would come from funds that are already allocated to breast cancer awareness and Salute to Service,” San Francisco 49ers safety Eric Reid told Slate. “So it would really be no skin off the owners’ backs: They would just move the money from those programs to this one.”
Well how do you like that? If you thought the ‘Deplorables’ had shown contempt to the League BEFORE…
Just WAIT until they learn that the same league that forbade any token memorial of 9/11 or public mourning of those murdered Dallas Cops will be siphoning money away from ‘Salute To Service’ to fund Soros initiatives.
If they go through with this?
Stick a fork in it. The league (at least, as we had known it) is done. Probably for good.
A shirt that aptly describes the NFL — No Fans Left.
NFL’s TV ratings are plummeting as more players refuse to stand for the national anthem. It’s
hard to believe that a nation that has given these players the opportunity to achieve so much is
so easily disrespected. Even worse, consider the men and women who have laid down their
lives so that these athletes could live in a relatively safe country and enjoy their fame and
Hard-working, patriotic Americans don’t want to watch a bunch of whiners play football. They
want to watch winners.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-
Made t-shirt press!

Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
