He’s got money and marketing savvy. While the NFL gives fans the finger, will this guy ‘Make Football Great Again’?
Fans still LOVE football.
But they hate being crapped on by pouty millionaire players who want the cash and respect, without actually respecting the fans that made them ‘stars’ in the first place.
Fans have been given the finger by the league who will still fine a player for wearing Christmas-themed cleats, but goes out of its way to bend over backward honoring Mr. Pig-socks Kaepernick and his America sucks protests.
Too bad there isn’t another option, right?
Don’t be so sure.
This is America, where the Free Market is a powerful force for good.
Where there is a need, people with wealth will be motivated to meet it… by profit.
Everybody wins. Investors get profit. Customers get the product or service they were wanting, and the enconomy grows in the process.
Word is, Vince McMahon is getting ready to give fans what they really want. A football league that isn’t a poorly-disguised delivery system for Anti-American rhetoric.
Reports that Vince McMahon has sold $100 million of stock in WWE, the publicly traded company he has run since 1982, apparently for the purpose of relaunching the XFL, is welcome news indeed to football fans across the country who have abandoned the social justice warrior political operation formerly known as the National Football League.
The wrestling impresario will reportedly provide no details on his potential new venture until January 25, 2018 at the earliest. While it is not clear if he plans to compete directly with the NFL in the fall, such direct competition–offering a celebration of American exceptionalism through the sport of professional football–would be welcomed by those football fans and voters who chose to Make America Great Again by electing Donald Trump President of the United States in November 2016.
Is this just the rumor mill? Not according to Business Insider:
Talk of an XFL revival started recently when Brad Shepard reported that McMahon was considering a revival of the league and was aiming to make an announcement in late January. A WWE spokesperson told Deadspin’s David Bixenspan that McMahon “has established and is personally funding a separate entity from WWE, Alpha Entertainment, to explore investment opportunities across the sports and entertainment landscape, including professional football.”
It didn’t sound like a denial.
Bixenspan also found a number of trademarks that seemed to suggest McMahon’s interest in bringing the league back — Alpha Entertainment registered both “URFL” and “UrFL” back in September, and VKM Ventures LLC, a company bearing McMahon’s initials, filed to trademark “For the Love of Football” and “United Football League” at a similar time.
On Thursday, ESPN’s Darren Rovell reported that McMahon had sold $100 million worth of WWE stock, and that the filing noted that the sale was “primarily to fund a separate entity from the Company, Alpha Entertainment LLC.”

It could be that he goes with the MAGA angle. There’s a good reason he should, too:
McMahon appears intent on resurrecting the XFL brand for the league he launched for one interesting but unsuccessful season in 2001, in partnership with NBC, but MAGAFL is a branding that is likely to resonate even more powerfully with his target market–traditional Americans who love football but are sick and tired of the social justice warriors who play in, own, and run the NFL
… A recent poll conducted by the American Faith & Culture Institute spells big trouble for the NFL when it comes to fan perceptions of the league’s patriotism: Only 18 percent of the poll’s respondents considered the NFL to be a very patriotic organization.
Views of the NFL are politically polarized. Only 10 percent of conservatives consider the NFL very patriotic, while 30 percent of liberals consider it very patriotic.
We’re being offered a chance to watch football AND stick it to Goodell and Company for crapping all over America?
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.
Ladies, tell everyone that you don’t like the emasculated, metro-sexual ‘feminists’ — you’d rather have a President with balls:
And gents, let everyone know that you want your President to be just as much of a man as you are:
Donald J. Trump is our 45th President. Why? Because Americans from all races and classes are sick of whining Republicans and corrupt Democrats. Finally, we have a President who isn’t afraid to say what he thinks even if it is not popular with the press. Trump is not a typical politician. Trump can’t be bought. He will back up what he says with action, no matter the cost. Finally. A president with balls!
Get yours today and trigger the leftists and the RINO NeverTrumpers.
