The NBA Just Learned The Hard Way … Do NOT Spit In America’s Face & Tell Them It’s Ratings As Ratings Drop Over 20%
 
Lawrence David
 

The first rule of business is to respect your customers.  The social justice warriors of the NBA could use a lesson in the first rule.

Viewership on ABC is down 23 percent and the numbers are down 20 percent overall compared to the 2019 playoffs, according to Sports Illustrated.   We believe in large part due to the disrespect the NBA players have shown to hard working and patriotic Americans.

That translates to less money in the league’s kitty… and in the long run, less money for the players.

Your life is up to you.  Spirit provides the canvas, you do the painting.  There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen; those who watch what happens;, and, those who wonder what happened.  Take charge of your life--or someone else will.

Haven't watched the Steelers since all but one stayed in the locker room for the National Anthem one game last season.  Steelers are on Monday Night Football tonight.  My set is dark.  These overpaid, underworked bums can go to hell.  I'm not going to watch a bunch of wealthy guys , black or white, preaching to me about my so-called white privilege and how I'm racist only because I'm white.    PFFT!

The wife became a huge Packer fan (actually Aaron Rodgers fan) a few years ago. Since then, we haven't missed many Packer games.
Until now that is. We didn't watch a minute of the game Sunday. It appears the team has become fully "woke."
They can float out into Lake Michigan for all we care now.

I don't know friends, to this day, what it was that they was a doin' down there,....but I have studied about it.
I think it was that it's some kindly of a contest where they see which bunchful of them men can take the most knees and protest some sort of injustice better than the other pumkin heads.

If the HS doesn't go all woke ninnyisms on us...If they do, then I won't even be there.

Steelers offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva wears name of military veteran on helmet instead of Antwon Rose

Quote
Pittsburgh Steelers offensive tackle Alejandro Villanueva wore the name "Alwyn Cashe" on his helmet Monday night, while the rest of the team had "Antwon Rose Jr." on their helmets.

Rose was shot and killed by an East Pittsburgh police officer who was later acquitted.
...
Cashe was awarded a Silver Star.

A vehicle he was in was struck by an improvised explosive device. While the car was on fire, Cashe helped remove nine soldiers from the car. Those close to him say Cashe was on fire as he was removing people from the car. Three of those people survived, according to Pittsburgh's Action News 4 sister station WESH.

BTW:  Alejandro Villanueva was the lone Steeler to come out of the locker room for the National Anthem last year.  And he caught hell for doing so.

I would bet everything I own that my beloved UW-Madison Badgers will go fully woke for their football and basketball teams.
A few years ago they allowed one  of their bb players, Nigel Hayes. to make some sort of black power salute during the NA. The coach, Greg Gard,  said he was perfectly alright with it.
I have no doubt that this year he'll allow all the black players to make their little statements and coerce the white players into doing stuff as well.
I hope I would be wrong, but I sincerely doubt it.
