Roger Goodell: Moron, Loser

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell takes $89 million away from breast cancer and military charities to pay off SJWs:

Yeah, that will help with the NFL’s unprecedented decline in popularity and ratings.

Problem: Drop in viewer popularity and support.

Solution, by Roger Goodell: Offend your base more.

LOL, what an idiot.

Last Post on the NFL Drama Queenery?

…at least, unless anything else noteworthy happens. This is a collection of miscellany pertaining to the recent drama queenery. What a pathetic spectacle: A bunch of 25-year-old men are acting like a bunch of spoiled, attention-whoring 13-year-old girls.

I’m going to take these in roughly sorta-kinda chronological order.

The biggest story of the weekend is from Canton, Ohio, where suddenly — spontaneously — for no apparent reason but plain patriotism, the Pro Football Hall of Fame sprouted 800 American flags.

Heh heh heh heh heh heh.

NFL now the least-liked sport:

Open thread for those still following. TNF down 12 percent, biggest decline to date the late double-header on CBS, which featured the Raiders vs Denver and was down 31 percent from last year.

Over just one month of player, coach, and owner protests of the flag and National Anthem, the National Football League has gone from America’s sport to the least liked of top professional and college sports, according to a new poll. From the end of August to the end of September, the favorable ratings for the NFL have dropped from 57 percent to 44 percent, and it has the highest unfavorable rating – 40 percent – of any big sport.

In a letter to NFL owners, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says:

We believe that everyone should stand for the National Anthem.

Ooooooooh! Saw the latest poll and ticket sales numbers, didya, Rog?

A commenter notes,

The NFL numbers must have been horrifically bad to force Goodell to so publicly bend the knee to Trump.

Cratering ticket sales:
http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/nfl-ticket-sales-plummet-179/article/2635955

The National Football League is feeling the impact of the “Trump Effect.”

Ticket sales since he called on team owners to fire players who take a knee to protest the National Anthem have cratered.

The online ticket reseller TickPick told Secrets that sales have dropped 17.9 percent, far more than the usual Week Three fall.

From TickPick:
17.9 percent decrease in NFL orders this week compared to the previous week.
Last year the drop was 10.8 percent in orders on Monday & Tuesday following Week Three games.

17.9/10.8 = 1.657. So in other words, the sales slump is 66% worse than usual.

That’s what happens when you humiliate yourself before black identity extremism.

http://www.espn.com/nfl/story/_/id/21056998/nfl-ratings-75-percent-week-6-2017-compared-2016
First they note that ratings are off by 7.5% compared to the first six weeks of 2016. Further down they note how bad it is compared to two seasons ago: “Compared with the first six weeks of the 2015 season, NFL ratings are off 18.7 percent…”

Oooooh! That’s gotta sting! Then:

In the past week, Credit Suisse lowered its price targets on both Fox and CBS stock, citing NFL ratings declines.

“If ratings don’t improve materially, we see a potential headwind to domestic advertising revenues,” the investment bank’s analyst Omar Sheikh wrote of Fox…

Of course, the NFL would never engage in spinning to deny the problem. Oh, wait:

Last year, the NFL attributed part of its viewership decline during the first nine weeks of the season to competition from presidential election coverage. Viewership was indeed better for the second half of the season, after the election, but it still finished down 8 percent, compared with 2015.

NFL: The Circus Continues

A few days ago I posted what I said would be my next-to-last post on the NFL spectacle, unless something else interesting happened. Well, guess what? Something else interesting happened! So this will be my next-to-last post, barring further idiocy. (Of course, that “barring further idiocy” could keep me posting on this for the next eon.)

More NFL goodness, a.k.a., the circus continues:

Hopeless idiot Colin Krapohead, or whatever his name is, is filing a grievance against the NFL because no one will hire him. Er, what’s the grievance? Who, exactly, is guilty of what? The word being used is “collusion,” as in, “Coaches are colluding against me!” The statement from Krapohead’s lawyer is “Trump sux! Legacy of slavery!” Yeah, seriously.

The “Trump sux” part: “athletes should not be denied employment based on partisan political provocation by the Executive Branch of our government.” Jesus. It really is unbelievable how brazen the left is.

First of all, Krapohead is not unemployed because of Trump; he’s unemployed because he’s a crappy quarterback – he went 1-10 in his most recent season, yikes! – who will be a PR nightmare for any team that hires him.

Secondly, he was unemployed months before Trump called out the NFL for coddling these privileged little drama queens. Latest SJW narrative: Trump has a time machine! Fuck, but these people are desperate.

Thirdly, to turn a football game into a political event, as Krapohead did when he protested the anthem, and then whine that the President is engaging in politics, is vomit-inducingly hypocritical. God, but SJWs are such sick, sub-human little fucks. No normal human being could manage that level of hypocrisy. It’s like the old joke about the guy who murders his parents, then begs the judge for leniency on the grounds that he’s an orphan. The sheer brazen assholery and hypocrisy of these people just defies belief.

But it gets worse: His lawyer actually said this: “If the NFL (as well as all professional sports leagues) is to remain a meritocracy, then…” FUCK! Krapohead’s the one who made it about politics, not on-field performance, asshole! Now he’s saying that it should be a meritocracy, that is, only about how well he plays! Fucking fuck!!! It practically overloads the mind’s ability to grasp this level of shamelessness! I’m gonna blow a circuit. The whole sentence, omitting an aside about the owners, is: “If the NFL (as well as all professional sports leagues) is to remain a meritocracy, then principled and peaceful political protest… should not be punished.” In other words, “It should be solely about performance, so you should let my client make it about something other than performance.” Un. Fucking. Believable.

Of course, it’s also deeply amusing that a guy with a record of 1-10 would dare to talk about meritocracy in the first place.

BONUS: Krapohead wasn’t cut loose from the SF 49ers. He walked away from his contract with them last year, LOL!

I suspect his lawyer, one Mark Geragos, is thinking, “Well, I’ll take this moron’s money if he wants.”

There’s a legal analysis by Michael McCann at msn.com in the last day or two. (No link, sorry. The Internet is your friend.) Summary: It is, of course, hopeless for the dickhead.

All this makes one think of H. L. Mencken, that man who loved the spectacle of morons being moronic in public. He should be around these days. He’d flense these fucking idiots until they screamed.

Postscriptum: Stats about the imbecile.

From Wikipedia (I’d link to Infogalactic but their stats on him aren’t up to date):

“In 2015, Kaepernick… finished the season with 1,615 yards passing, six passing touchdowns, five interceptions and 256 rushing yards with one rushing touchdown.”

Holy shizznit, seriously? Only one more passing touchdown than interception? Why the fuck is anyone even talking about this guy? Even if you count his rushing touchdown, the story is, “Hire Colin Kaepernick! He’ll get you 7 touchdowns and 5 interceptions!” LOL. Give up, you pathetic loser.

From the useful site https://www.pro-football-reference.com/players/K/KaepCo00.htm, his career regular-season record was 28-30, so he’s a proven NON-winner. But the career record masks the deterioration over time: In the 2014 season his record was 8-8. In the 2015 season, it was 2-6. In 2016… wait for it… 1-10.

Ugh. Untouchable. In his three most recent years, he’s 11-24. So his winning percentage is 11/(11+24) = 31.4%. He’s won less than a third of his games! And his most recent year, less than a tenth of them! Hire Colin Krapohead, and YOU can have the privilege of a quarterback who wins 1/11 = nine percent of his games. And he’s saying coaches don’t want to hire him because politics or racism or whatever. Unreal. The delusionality is strong in this one.

Bye, Krapohead. It was not nice knowing you.

NFL Players Stupidly Bring Up the Topic of Violence

Barring further idiocy, this will be my second-to-last post on the NFL’s recent idiocy.

So a bunch of black NFL players have been trying to turn the National Conversation to the topic of violence. Dear Lord, REALLY? Are you guys seriously that fucking stupid? I always thought the image of dumb jocks was just an invidious stereotype. Maybe there’s something to it.

OK, dickheads, wish granted.

What fraction of white cops have killed a black man?

Okay, now…

What fraction of NFL players have committed a violent crime?

If I support the NFL, I guess I’m supporting physical assault. I wouldn’t want to do that! Better not have anything to do with the NFL.

http://nflarrest.com/
This site was down due to “extreme traffic” on September 26, 2017. I’ll bet. All of a sudden, American fans have had their attention called to the fact that NFL players are claiming to be angels. Seriously, fuckwits?

Even the Huffington Post isn’t buying it, for fuck’s sake!
http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/nfl-violence-arrest-rate_us_55df5d9ee4b0e7117ba9336f

I don’t usually cite HuffPo, unless it’s for a laugh, but since NFL players are now claiming to be morally perfect little angels who are entitled to lecture everyone else:

Why Aren’t We Talking About What This Study Discovered About NFL Violence?
Researchers have found that NFL players get arrested for violent crimes more often than 20- and 30-something men.

HuffPo also notes that this understates things, because the study only counted arrests while the player was on an NFL roster, and the average NFL career is only 6 years. In contrast, the comparison group, men in their 20s and 30s, has no such limitation; it spans 20 years.

(So the disparity would go the other way if NFL players weren’t especially violent, by a factor of 20/6 = 3.33. I.e., NFL player are more than three times as likely to commit violent crimes as the general male population in that age group.)

Look, if even The Huffington Post can’t stomach the bullshit of your left-wing cause, it’s time to re-think.

At PJ Media https://pjmedia.com/trending/2017/10/01/now-wall-street-threatens-nfls-act/ we learn that

Contrary to the Black Lives Matter narrative, the police have much more to fear from black males than black males have to fear from the police. In 2015, a police officer was 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black male than an unarmed black male was to be killed by a police officer.

Black males have made up 42 percent of all cop-killers over the last decade, though they are only 6 percent of the population. That 18.5 ratio undoubtedly worsened in 2016, in light of the 53 percent increase in gun murders of officers — committed vastly and disproportionately by black males.

Maybe talking about disparities in murder rates by race isn’t the way to go here, assholes.

I’m Done with the NFL

Bye, drama queens.

You spit on my country, and then when the President taps you on the shoulder and says “That’s out of line,” you double down. So this is what you’ve revealed to me: You not only hate my country – which would be enough for me to tell you to fuck off – hating it is important enough to you to double down over it.

Fuck you.

Goodbye.
