    ...not if it's under the thumb of the 'Social Justice Warriors.'

    Even sports commentators have to toe the Leftist line.

    Remember when Limbaugh was fired by ESPN for opining that a black quarterback wasn't as good as the ESPNers wanted to claim, in their need to move the agenda forward?


    "The comments referenced by Limbaugh came during Sunday's pregame show when the conservative talk show host offered the opinion that McNabb wasn't as good as the media perceived him to be.

    "I think what we've had here is a little social concern in the NFL. The media has been very desirous that a black quarterback do well,'' Limbaugh said. "There is a little hope invested in McNabb, and he got a lot of credit for the performance of this team that he didn't deserve. The defense carried this team."
    ESPN.com: GEN - Limbaugh resigns from ESPN


    Last night's fiasco, when they put a sideline guy, who was Hispanic, but not up to the job, blubbered about 'diversity' as the reason for a coach's success....





    "It's really not Sergio Dipp's fault. He was put in a horrible position by the suits at ES(JW)PN who view diversity as far more important than preparation, familiarity with the sport, or command of the English language. Sergio Dipp was introduced to the world last night late in the second quarter. By the time he was done with his first report, Dipp was exposed as being just a bit over his skis on the big stage when the lights went on. Now, all of social media is comparing him to the Boom Goes The Dynamite Guy."

    well the NFL for sure is not the NFL anymore.no question on that the way the cheatriots get away with scandal after scandal that other teams get punished for if they commit the same offense and always have the home town refs in their pockets come playoff time.

    People here want to believe that NFL ratings are down at an all time low wanting to blame the elections on it last year and now kapernick not saluting the flag and blah blah blah in denial mode that the REAL reason NFL viewership is down at an all time low now is because the patriots have created the biggest scandal in sports history since the black sox scandal desperately trying to fool themselves it is now they are so much in denial a game near and dear to them has been tainted.:D

    The proof is in the pudding on that in the fact that every NFL fan in the stadium booed Shady Brady at the superbowl in santa clara two years ago.:up:

    Plus if that is not enough,viewership was down at an all time low for the NFL opener of the Chiefs and Patriots game thursday night? :D

    This against the team that won the SUPERBOWL last year?:lmao:

    Ratings also started dropping badly each year six years ago WAY before kapernick and others stopped saluting our corrupt governments flag.so much for the theory that Kapernick is to blame for the decline.



    Also now with teams able to move their team at the drop of time anytime they want for a shiny brand new stadium putting that first ahead of tradition and history,sure is not the NFL it used to be either.


    people need to come to terms with the real world and accept it that these two men below are the REAL reason NFL ratings are down and WHY the NFL is not the NFL anymore.:rolleyes::cuckoo:

    along with my point of teams moving at the drop of a dime now as well of course.there really are THOUSANDS of fans across the country angry as hell about the raiders even thinking about leaving oakland.the raiders are just not the Raiders if they dont play in Oakland same as the cowboys are not the cowboys if they dont play in dallas or your yankees the yankees if they dont play in new york.:rolleyes: same thing.

    No.

    He gave his considered opinion about the ability of McNabb, and attributed the overrating to the Liberal paradigm.

    I don't follow football, 'cause I'm a NYGiant fan.

    Sports haven't been sports in a long long time.

    The sport is incidental to profit. Simple decency is a thing of the past.

    eg -- blackball a guy for kneeling, worship a guy for dropping to his knee to thank god for a td, totally and completely and utterly ignore and even reward players for outright criminal behavior.

    Remember Michael Vick? He has given up nothing and neither has any other criminal. If they bring in the bucks, that's all that matters.

    Its shameful and so are the fans.

    "....ESPN’s liberal agenda and collapsing business model.

    .... it is bleeding subscribers, in part, because it has become, in his words, a social justice warrior network with disproportionate coverage of, for example, Caitlyn Jenner, Michael Sam, and Colin Kaepernick. Last December, ESPN’s public editor acknowledgedhis network’s leftward movement.


    On Monday, Jemele Hill, the co-host of the ratings-challenged 6 p.m. Eastern time SportsCenter (SC6) took to Twitter to accuse President Trump of being a white supremacist and that he only won the presidency because of his skin color. ESPN subsequently issued a tweet that Hill’s comments didn’t reflect the position of ESPN and that the network had addressed the matter of her inappropriate actions with her. Hill reportedly earns a seven-figure salary from ESPN.


    ....ESPN allegedly suspended Linda Cohn, a 25-year ESPN employee, for comments she made on a New York City radio station last spring. Remarking about the April layoffs at the media company, Cohn explained to “Bernie and Sid” on WABC that overpaying the sports leagues for broadcast rights was one challenge. She added that the coverage of social or political issues was responsible for a percentage of the audience erosion, the New York Post reported at the time.

    Although it wasn’t publicly known until now, Cohn was benched..."
