NFL Just Made Huge Announcement About The League After Season Opener Disaster

Published

on

The season opener for the NFL came in the form of their lowest ratings of any season opener game in the past ten years. It no doubt is linked to the fact that anthem kneeling has once again shown its face. Something that has caused a lot of problems over the past few years.

Breitbart News reported,

“A new report claims that the NFL will not implement a new anthem policy during the 2018 season.

ESPN is reporting that league insiders have said that the NFL is unlikely to issue any rulings on the anthem issue regardless of whether talks with the players association continue or not, the Hill reported.

The report comes on the heels of an aborted rule that would have banned players from protesting during the nation’s song issued in May. But less than a month later the rule was abandoned when the National Football League Players Association filed a grievance against the rule mainly because the rule was instituted without their input in its creation.

The league then promised to sit down with the player’s association to hash out a permanent policy on dealing with protesting players. To date there has been no news at all on what has come of these promised meetings, nor has there been any reports that such meetings have yet been held.

The only official news about the proposed cooperative venture was a joint statement issued in June that claimed the two sides were preparing to work together on the issue.

No players took a knee during the anthem on Thursday’s opening day, and no players raised a fist. Eagles defender Michael Bennett sat down just before the song concluded, but it is unclear if that was a form of protest. Meanwhile a pair of polls came out that both find that majorities still oppose protests mounted during the national anthem.”

Fox News reported,

“Hours before the NFL season was set to kick off in full on Sunday, President Trump took a dig at the league’s declining viewership for its primetime opener last Thursday, when the Philadelphia Eagles took on the Atlanta Falcons.

Calling the viewership “the lowest in a decade,” Trump suggested that if players stood for “The Star-Spangled Banner” then the ratings would improve. “Wow, NFL first game ratings are way down over an already really bad last year comparison,” Trump tweeted Sunday morning. “Viewership declined 13%, the lowest in over a decade.” The tweet continued: “If the players stood proudly for our Flag and Anthem, and it is all shown on broadcast, maybe ratings could come back? Otherwise worse!”

According to NBC, which broadcast the game between the Eagles and Falcons, the primetime opener drew a 13.4 overnight rating, down 8 percent from last year’s NFL kickoff game between the Kansas City Chiefs and New England Patriots.

While a number of factors conspired to impact the viewership – a mediocre first half and a thunderstorm that delayed the start by an hour – Sports Media Watch noted that the game was still the lowest overnight rating for a season opener in 10 years, when the 2008 kickoff game was moved up so it ended prior to Sen. John McCain’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention.

The low ratings provided more fodder for Trump’s ongoing battle with the NFL over certain players kneeling or refusing to stand during the national anthem.

While players have asserted that the protest — which started two seasons ago when former San Francisco 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick took a knee — is about bringing attention to racial inequality, police brutality and other issues, Trump has called it disrespectful to the Armed Forces and continually correlated the protests with the NFL’s declining viewership.

Among the prized 18-45 demographic, Nielsen reported that the NFL’s viewership did decline 12 percent in the 2017 season. But this decline mirrors a trend across all broadcast television, which in total dipped 16 percent in 2017 thanks in large part to the rise in popularity of streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu.

Along with the ratings, Trump also slammed the NFL for running a controversial Nike commercial featuring Kaepernick. The commercial, which was released last Wednesday, highlights superstar athletes LeBron James, Serena Williams and others, and touches on the controversy of NFL players protesting.

Colin Kaepernick just recently renegotiated an agreement that goes over multiple years with Nike. It will make him one of the faces of Nike for their 30th anniversary. This is all based on information from an anonymous source who has not been revealed publically yet.

The endorsement deal between Colin Kaepernick and Nike is what has prompted a flood of controversial debate over the past week. Social media networks, media outlets, and Twitter have had articles trending on the matter. Some fans have urged that a boycott take place against Nike clothes and sneakers.

Some have even burned and cut out the signature swoosh mark on the sneakers of the gear. In response, President Trump tweeted on Wednesday that Nike would get killed over the endorsement deal. Furthermore, arguing that he would not be watching football any longer because of it.

Simone Biles Speaks Out After Interim USA Gymnastics President Blasts Nike and Kaepernick

Published

* By

Political correctness is a severe cancer in this world. I’m so tired of people apologize for something that needs no apology. If you are going to speak out about something…don’t apologize.

Don’t worry Simone Biles, it’s not like people are entitled to their opinion or that are shills for Big Corporations like dictating how everyone should think.

Dear Simone, stick to being a gymnast. Go on and keep making your money from a fascist company.

From Western Journal:

USA Gymnastics has found itself mired in perpetual controversy in recent years

The snowball began rolling in earnest when the horrific allegations of sexual abuse against team doctor Larry Nassar surfaced in 2015.

Obviously, Nassar’s actions are unforgivable and he deserves every last second of what is effectively a life sentence in prison.

After taking care of Nassar, the hounds of justice set their sights on USA Gymnastics itself. Any organization that could have been so unaware of the horrors taking place right under its nose deserve the accompanying scrutiny.

Former USA Gymnastics president Steve Penny was forced to resign by the USOC after his horrible mishandling of the Nassar scandal.

His replacement, Kerry Perry, also ended up being forced to resign after her leadership was questioned by USOC.

Now, Perry’s replacement, Mary Bono, has also found herself in controversy, though nothing as serious as the last two.

Bono, a former Republican congresswoman in California, was barely on the job when a month-old tweet of hers resurfaced.

“Playing in a charity golf tournament raising for our nation’s Special Forces operators and their families. Unfortunately, had these shoes in my bad. Luckily I had a marker in my bag too,” Bono said in a since-deleted tweet.

The accompanying picture showed her using a black marker to hide the Nike logo on a shoe.

Regardless of how you feel about Nike’s divisive ad featuring Colin Kaepernick, Bono is more than entitled to her opinion. Yes, she put Nike, and by extension Kaepernick, on blast for the latter’s rhetoric. But she’s hardly exclusive in her feelings. Bono is just one of many Americans who feel that Kaepernick’s anthem protests were disrespectful to the flag, the military and the police.

While Bono is obviously allowed to voice her opinion, she unfortunately also drew the ire of her organization’s premiere athlete, Olympic gold medalist Simone Biles.

“Don’t worry, it’s not like we needed a smarter usa gymnastics president or any sponsors or anything,” Biles wrote in a blistering response tweet prefaced by a “mouth drop.”

While USA Gymnastics hasn’t had a team sponsor since late 2017, Biles is personally sponsored by Nike, according to ESPN.

Perhaps realizing that Biles is the one gymnast she cannot afford to alienate, Bono promptly deleted the tweet and issued an apology.

“I regret the post and respect everyone’s views & fundamental right to express them. This doesn’t reflect how I will approach my position @USAGym I will do everything I can to help build, w/ the community, an open, safe & positive environment,” Bono said in her apology tweet.

It would be nice to think that this will be the final controversy USA Gymnastics will have to deal with for a while. But if recent history is any indication, that seems almost impossible.

Transgender Steamrolls Biological Women to Win World Cycling Championship

Dear Women, how do you like your world now? This is just another great thing brought to us from political correctness. Look at what the democrats have done to this world.

This is absolutely ridiculous and a affront to women and women’s sports.

From Louder With Crowder:

One of the up-and-coming trends on the left is trannies getting a stranglehold on sports. Gender-bending guys beating the bejeezus out of ladies in MMA. Transitioning girls on the juice competing against girls not on ‘roids. All in a days work for loopy lefties.

Now, there’s guys lapping the ladies in world championship bike races:

A biological male who identifies as a transgender woman won a women’s world championship cycling event on Sunday.

Rachel McKinnon, a professor at the College of Charleston, won the women’s 35-39 age bracket at the 2018 UCI Masters Track Cycling World Championships in Los Angeles.

McKinnon celebrated the victory on Twitter, writing: “First transgender woman world champion…ever.”

“We cannot have a woman legally recognized as a trans woman in society, and not be recognized that way in sports,” McKinnon told USA Today.

“Focusing on performance advantage is largely irrelevant because this is a rights issue. We shouldn’t be worried about trans people taking over the Olympics. We should be worried about their fairness and human rights instead.”

In other words, screw biology. Let’s make all our decisions based on feels instead.

There’s a reason why we have divisions and weight classes in sports. Otherwise, 250-pound ex-cons named Butch would be getting into the octagon with 5’4” soccer moms who “thought this would be fun.” Divisions and weight classes are there to make sure nobody has an unfair advantage. Like a guy in lady clothes steamrolling over biologically inferior females on a bicycle.

Yep, we have to completely ignore the bulge in “her” tights and herald her as the peak of female athleticism. Because “rights.” The real women who gave it their all and pedaled their keisters off will just have to deal with it. Pathetic.
