Anyone wonder why interest in sports continues to slide?

Sports interest in Millennial, and Gen Z was waning prior to the whole full on 'woke' thing came onto the scene.

However, I think this woke faggotry is ruining it for older sports fans.

They are STILL kneeling before soccer matches in Europe. They will probably always kneel, why? Cause some knee grow porn star, criminal died.

The NBA, NFL, and MLB are still actively engaged, and also promote full on queer.

It's a plan to destroy culture, that is all it is. Socialism 101.
From kindergarten through college Mils and Gen Xers have been taught by Marxist teachers that any form of competition, either on a team or individually is wrong.
The poor little babies are given 'participation trophies just for showing up for class.
The boy babies grow up afraid to compete in physical sports.
The girl babies are taught that it's somehow too 'hard' and somehow smells of misogyny to compete in any sport. Better to spend their time 'marching' wearing pink pussy hats (oh the fucking irony!!!!!!!) protesting whatever some fucking thug rapper tells them is important on a given day. (The rapper's family members are busy selling the pussy hats BTW) LOL!

Politiics never influences. 1) friends I choose. 2). Sports I watch. 3) movies I want to see 4). Places I want to visit or live. Politics is way down the importance list although it is above all else entertaining and let's me ridicule the nations political events.

Why doesn't racist China ever have a negro compete? What, no negroes are citizens of China? What's up with that anyway?

Think about that for a moment.

They may actually be able to compete in track and field.

As it is, and as we all know, they are great at swimming stuff, and gymnastics stuff. I mean naturally negroes wouldn't compete in the swimming stuff. I mean naturally, right?


RIGHT!?!!

Uhhhhh, there are no negroes that live in China?

Is America the actual dream of what the world supposedly wants? Every race and creed competing FOR the country?

Huh

Things that make you hmmmm.

Most don't watch TV and younger generation has no patience to sit and watch a sporting event. At best they'll just watch thr highlights on YouTube.

That nails my excuse. I was never into spending a Saturday watching television so I've never been much into college football. Was a big fan of the NFL but went to my last game in way back in 2020. The money I paid for a ticket wasn't worth waiting through all the commercial breaks. Since then it has gotten a lot worse and I've cut down on watching the game on TV by limiting my viewing to the local team. Sometimes I can even make it through a whole game without drifting off into a nap during a commerical.

Slade3200 no- biggie---you will be wallowing in a shithole because of it .....the whiners are the idiots protesting---they don't even know what they are protesting ..they are stupid...IF they graduate, they only do so because they get a pass for their sport and cheating
I’m not worried about it. You’re being a drama Queen. If you enjoy watching a sport then go watch the sport. Don’t be so sensitive about what a bunch of kids want to protest

It's not due to politics, although politics has contributed.

My 18-year-old son has no interest in sports, despite my being a fanatical Ohio State Football fan. He just doesn't care. He has many more entertainment options than I did when I was his age.
i think that is a valid option and another reason for the decline. each generation tends to want to define their own way and this among all generations has been the most volatile change i've seen this country go through.

politics is sure playing into it for many. but as you point out, not all. growing up on sunday it was sit in front of the TV and watch in the 35" sony greatness you had that was the best around in 1985. it was either that or lord who knows what.

could be WHY the push into china and other markets means so much to these franchises to simply maintain revenue, if not grow.

For me its the advertising and sponsorship that's killing sport.
Sponsors ridiculous return on investment contracts are making tickets too expensive for the average Joe and players looking like fools at post match interviews being forced to display (and/or consume) their sponsors products.

Then there is the advertising - The shoe horning of adverts into almost all sports now makes the whole thing unwatchable. I want to watch the instant replays of great moments in a game, not watch Toyota adverts of their latest hybrid.

Progs are following Communist doctrines. Sports is one of the gods in a godless society.

Sports have been gods since the days of the gods. Doesn’t have anything to do with Progs or Cons

I agree above tech has removed some interest, I'm guilty of that too. End of the day it's lost it's appeal because of politics. Fuck even their commercials are politics. Professional I mean, I never was a college fan though watch games on occasion, they don't seem near as corrupt as pro.

I was a big NFL fan, and still watch on occasion. Politics beginning to end however, if they're not kneeling, National Anthem becomes politics. The announcers have to remain sensitive to PROG view, the commercials sell racism and fabrications, I still remember when just the acting was fake. Then if you ask me officials often lend themselves out for politics on another end.

Incidentally: Peyton>Brady>Montana=Marino=Graham :yes_text12: Brady gets second spot strictly because he's played so long. Had some luck and now winning is in his blood. Really he's the GOAT, he's just not the best to ever play, for instance, Peyton, Marino & Montana were better. End of the day Peyton was the best of all, nobody comes close to the consistency and quality of play on game day. Guy was first team all-pro seven times, and was second-third spot every year but his first and last seasons. Yeah I like the QB position.

Again I’ll say. Only whiney little drama queens are effected by this. Who gives a shit if a player is taking a knee before the game or wearing purple shoes to support a cause. If you like football then watch football. Little daisys who get butthurt about what kids are protesting don’t really matter. Y’all are kooky enough as it is, the sports will do just fine without you watching

I wonder how many people watched the National Anthem before all the kneeling started? I didn't. I still don't. I usually have the volume on by then, but it is not why I have the TV on.

again - if you're going to support the right to protest, then you support the right to protest REGARDLESS Of what they are protesting.

bitching about people doing something you fight for under another viewpoint is the core of why we're all so divided today.

These douches get more worked up over players who kneel to raise awareness for racial equality than they do when players beat their wives. It’s pathetic and political
