Only 50 Days until Election Day!! We NEED to step up our game!!
And speaking of games...the NFL resumed play this past weekend. Not to a roar, nor
even a whisper, but to the sounds of silence. Empty and near-empty stadiums will
have that effect. Even more profound was the loud booing heard as the traditional
playing of the National Anthem was accompanied by the playing of the so-called "black
The NFL previously rose to a position as a powerhouse in American culture. It was
rightly known as the league that wrested Sunday away from the churches. The league
carefully maintained its public image for decades, until 2016 happened. Colin Kaepernick
decided to sit, then kneel through the National Anthem in protest of police, judicial,
and correctional treatment of black criminals and racial injustice in general. NFL
owners perceived that Kaepernick's position was bad for business, and Kaepernick
swiftly found himself unemployed and unemployable due to his demand to utter speech
on his employer's time that would be inimical to his employer's message. While Kaepernick
was protesting, so were NFL patrons, and in-stadium attendance rapidly dropped,
as did television viewer ratings.
It seems that the NFL owners have forgotten the lessons of 2016, because in light
of the BLM- and Antifa-inspired rioting of the summer of 2020, the owners are now
not only allowing but encouraging the NFL players to carry out Kaepernick-like protests
during pre-game National Anthem ceremonies this season, which includes the institutionalizing
of the so-called "black national anthem." And the response of the fans is predictable.
Television viewership is down, in double-digit percentages. Even though very few
fans are allowed to attend games, and live attendance is allowed in only a very
few cities, those tickets are easier to come by than one would predict, and not
just because the ticket holders are virus-wary. The fans are protesting back, in
the only way they can. They are ignoring the NFL owners' product. As inconceivable
as it may seem to some, over 30 billionaires in the same business - presumed business
experts all - have uniformly completely misread their market, and will post record
losses in the name of political correctness. And at some point, they will figure
out that nobody cares....
