The fabulously rich often develop appetites for foods whose cost far exceeds what ordinary folk can possibly imagine–$295 hamburgers and $1782 slices of pie.

Many of today’s professional athletes, particularly in football and basketball (slightly less in baseball) likewise possess an extravagant appetite. This super-expensive gourmet item is the Goose whose golden eggs enrich these jocks. Now, thanks to their seemingly irrepressible hostility to American values and traditions, they are determined to kill and eat the Goose, perhaps by taking a knee on its neck. Ironically, these rich athletes seem unaware that those they denounce for a litany of race-related sins fund their extraordinary incomes. Do millionaire woke athletes believe that watching the NBA or NFL is so genetically hard-wired that the American public is terminally hooked?

Following the NBA or NFL is not an addiction. Eating the Goose may soon be replaced by jobs at Walmart and dining at McDonalds.

Prior to World War II professional basketball and football barely existed as spectator sports. Americans flocked to boxing and horse racing, not the Decatur Staleys, the forerunner of the NFL Chicago Bears. Public attention is fickle, and today’s Super Bowl mania may eventually be forgotten like when 120,557 fans packed Sesquicentennial Stadium in Philadelphia to watch the 1926 Dempsey-Tunney heavy-weight championship fight.

To understand today’s extraordinary salaries and why this affluence is hardly eternal, consider sports prior to TV. In a nutshell, it is TV revenue, directly and indirectly, that has generated these salaries and allows Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors to earn $40,281,758 while even mediocre player earn $10 million. Correctly understood, Curry is a TV star who just happens to play basketball,

David Halberstam’s Breaks of the Game recounts how TV revenue creates this enormous wealth. Basically, prior to TV, teams depended entirely on “the gate”–tickets, hotdogs and beer, souvenirs, and the like and player salaries were totally constrained by gate revenues. A star demanding a huge bonus would be turned down by the owner with “there’s no money” since there were only so many seats to be sold. The ticket or beer price might be boosted slightly to cover a star’s wage demands, but market forces constrained salaries and so players were paid poorly (many, fact, had off-season jobs).

Broadcast revenue changed everything for player income. You might be able to sell 4000 tickets on a good night, but the radio and TV audience could exceed a hundred times that number, so the trick, then, was converting a growing media audience into cash, a portion which would go to players. Player salaries were now freed from arena revenue.

Changes in technology were critical but moved slowly. AM radio hardly helped while early black and white TV was better but lacked modern pizzazz to attract millions (and TV ownership was still limited). Local professional basketball also had to compete with other local sports programing, As a youngster in the New York City area during the mid-1950s I occasionally watched the New York Knickerbockers professional basketball on a 16” TV but slow-moving Knick games vied with telecasts of roller derby, college basketball, boxing, horse racing and staged wrestling. Professional football did not exist on TV even in America’s largest city.

Technological advances changed everything, and the NBA and NFL now offer enormous razzle-dazzle entertainment, sophisticated world-wide merchandizing, and the fan base is in the tens of millions. Technology also created a national audience for sports so even those without professional teams in their cities can become avid NFL or NBA fans—millions more eyeballs. Today’s NFL generates some $14 billion in revenue (more than 182 million people watched an NFL game during 2019). The Goose has grown obese and the eggs huge so even a tiny sliver of this action generates Stephen Curry’s $40 million paycheck.

Alas, a healthy Goose need not be forever. I once owned a small retail business and personally bought professional basketball and football spots. I thus received closely guarded proprietary audience profiles showing that not all eyeballs are equally valuable, and if you want poorly educated women viewers, they come dirt cheap. Upscale middle-aged males, however, are the great prize since they only selectively watch TV, particularly sports, and enjoy ample discretionary incomes. Critically, to reach them, you buy expensive NFL and NBA commercials. Ever wonder why you see boring, low-rated golf on TV but not the more popular bowling? Golf fans buy Cadillacs; bowlers favor cheap beer, and car companies will pay dearly for the hard-to-reach former.

NBA, NFL, and MLB executives know this truth and realize TV revenue will drop if this relatively small audience departed. It exaggerates only slightly to say that these affluent males (and many women, too) are turned off by games marked by brawls and trash talk. No wonder that league executives are cracking down on both on and off-field behavior that gives the game a “bad imagine” and for many fans, the current mania of BLM everywhere, game boycotts, and outlandish (and inaccurate) accusations about American racism will have consequences, It hardly helps when LeBron James tweets says that he’s terrified of living in America (James’ 2019-20 salary is $37,436,858). Even more troublesome is how the quest for social justice is becoming a celebration of convicted felons as “heroes.” If TV ratings drop, huge salaries will likewise decline.

ORDER IT NOW

This audience decline is now happening. A 2020 Harris poll reported in Forbes found that 39% of NBA fans reported that they were watching fewer games due to “politics” Recent viewership of the NBA play-offs is down about 20% compared to last year’s numbers, and for the first time in sixteen years, a play-off game was not broadcast on TV. The particularly “woke” LA Lakers have seen especially large drops in viewership. Sports Illustrated has speculated that the NBA’s $24 billion TV contract will be trimmed when it is up for renewal in 2025. Tellingly, the “white” NASCAR out-drew a play-off game featuring super-star LeBron James. In 2019 NFL TV ratings fell when players refused to stand for the national anthem and the TV ratings of the NFL’s season opener were down 12.3% compared to the past year. Tellingly, that game was played on a field lined with the words “end racism” and the fans booed when the players from both teams joined hands in a show of solidarity against social injustice.

There may also be a “Plan B” to resolve the current “image problems” —avoid troublemakers ostensibly for reasons other than their anti-white views. The NBA now has some 108 players born overseas, a group probably disinclined to mix sports and radical racial politics. The NFL, of course, lacks this option but it has recently stepped up its policy of expelling players with legal problems (especially domestic violence) and it is conceivable that punishments will disproportionately target those outspoken on race. In any case, professional athletes generally have short careers, and today’s vocal protestors will soon be gone without anybody having to push them out the door for their views.

Most importantly, the Goose is protected by a Pretorian Guard–team owners, league and TV executives and hundreds more whose rich livelihood spends on high TV ratings—and these nonplayers decide who makes the team and who goes home to Walmart. That this guard currently acquiesces with the calls for social justice, painting BLM on arena floors and all the rest is not a sign of their deep ideological commitment. These owners and executives (nearly all of whom are white) know firsthand that these athletes have short attention spans and are easily seduced by trendy slogans. Better to ride out the crisis that attempt to reason with these multi-millionaires.

Moreover, obvious super-stars aside, who gets to be a rich jock depends on countless murky qualities besides raw talent: intelligence, self-discipline, attitude and willingness to take orders (“coachable”). Conceivably, highly vocal activists will fail on some of these standards and there is no recourse for those who fail to make the team. Even those who initially survive the cut are with scant exception, expendable and the Pretorian Guard will not coddle troublemakers who needlessly alienate fans. Today’s outspoken racial justice jocks are “the help” and do not hire themselves let alone create rival leagues. If players keep up the protests and boycotts, TV revenue will fall and rest assured, dozens of other talented but less vocal athletes are standing by to replace them. Smarter professional athletes will soon discover that its best to leave the Goose alone.

A postscript. When trying to grasp the social justice mania among professional athletes, especially black jocks, recall that for decades the common complaint was that schools exploited them, earning millions off their skills while paying them (at least officially) zero. Particularly galling in this exploitation was the shoddy education they received: “A’s for no-show courses, altered transcripts to ensure eligibility, paying tutors to write their papers and similar chicanery. The upshot were often semi-literate “graduates” overwhelmed by complicated issues. Hundreds of future professional athletes never even came close to earning a degree—One and Done.

These educationally deficient youngsters are now being taken seriously when pontificating on race-related tribulations that befuddle real experts. More than a few cannot even offer cogent arguments let alone explain terms like “systemic racism” and, to compound this folly, nobody dare challenges these millionaires as a college teacher might demand in a writing assignment. The intellectual diplomatic immunity that protected them in college has, apparently, been extended and, no doubt, this absence of intellectual challenge is hardly even noticed by recipients since it has existed for decades. The principle, “I speak therefore I know” is now sacred.

Who would ever have believed that America would now be educated on race relations by athletes who could not write a coherent essay on the topic even if their lives depended on it? A whole new meaning to the dumbing down of American education.

  1. So have American sports fans come to accept that from now on all players in the NFL and NBA will be kneeling for the anthem?

    An interesting post with many good points.

    I would like to point out, however, that the elite institutions of this country are deeply intertwined, and increasingly are insulated from the demands of the market place. So if a bank makes bad investments, it gets bailed out. A company goes on a debt-driven stock buyback spree during good times, then doesn’t have the cash to survive a downturn – of course it gets bailed out.

    BLM etc. is to a great extent useful for the rich, to play divide and conquer with the proles. If pro sports loses a little revenue in support of this propaganda ploy, so what? Those losses can be covered by other revenue streams in other industries, or if that fails, by more taxpayer-funded bailouts.

    I mean, most ‘news’ organizations are only small parts of much larger conglomerates, and if the ‘news’ organizations lose a few pennies spouting the party line for the other industries in the conglomerate, that’s just a cost of business.

    Sportsball voyeurism is for queers; true sportsmen inhabit the woods. As Thomas Jefferson stated, “A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercise, I advise the gun. While this gives a moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprize, and independance to the mind. Games played with the ball and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be the constant companion of your walks.” Even a simple cane fishing pole beats Biden’ your time with naggers.

    The entire pro-sports world is run by Jews. It goes beyond Jew team owners and Jew run TV networks. Practically all the agents are Jews. Many athletes have been swindled out of their millions by their Jewish accountants. Pro sports are the easy way out for unemployable blacks. These millionaire dumb jocks are a gold mine for Jews.

    It does beg the question though how long this racket will last. TV and cable networks are no longer drawing the eyeballs they once did. Sports are the only shows they make money on anymore that’s why they’re willing to shell out the big bucks, but they are increasingly losing ad revenue to the internet so they are now trying to squeeze money out of cable providers like Comcast. But then cord cutting is gaining pace so Comcast is worried about their survival too. Tickets are getting so expensive they are increasingly relying on corporations to buy tickets for their employees and clients.

    Most young people now spend more time playing video games, watching YouTube clips or on social media than watching pro sports. Most moms do not want their sons playing football or even basketball these days due to concussions. Many are just playing to get into college, esp. soccer. If it weren’t for holistic admissions, sports participation will go way down.

    I eagerly await the day when this whole racket comes crumbling down, so our kids can just go back to playing sports for fun.

    America is sick. Don’t tell me that you don’t know white males who despise this “taking a knee” routine and the BLM narrative, and yet, they still watch the black gladiators and love “muh Eagles”.
    Russia and Iran have it right. Wrestling is the sport of men. Have you ever seen Iranian wrestling fans? They are amazing. They also appreciate stars from other countries. Jordan Burroughs, perhaps the most accomplished black American wrestler of this age, had a huge following of Iranian fans. Watching Russian Nationals in freestyle wrestling is as good as watching international competitions. America still has a strong tradition of wrestling, mostly white deplorables with traditional Christian values. There is hope. The US would be a powerhouse if we started wrestling freestyle and Greco-Roman as kids. As it is, we focus on folkstyle for so long it’s hard for the elite NCAA D1 elite to transition to freestyle.

    Apr 22, 2017 – Pro Gaming May Soon Eclipse Pro Sports

    “Playing computer games is more than a pastime for some younger people. It’s a career. A study by Unibet sheds new light on the phenomenon of eSports, as competitive gaming is called. Did you know that the League of Legends (multiplayer online battle arena/MOBA) final drew in more viewers than the last game of the 2016 NBA Finals (36 million vs 31 million)? Or that the total eSports prize pool exceeds $93 million?”

    I agree with this article based on my children’s interests. https://www.marketwatch.com/story/pro-gaming-may-soon-eclipse-sports-including-basketball-and-baseball-2017-04-22

    How can watching millionaires run about on a TV screen be of interest, compared to something one can actually play at home. Anyone can become a pro gamer, even in a wheelchair, whereas 99.99% of Americans are too small or slow by age six to have any hope at professional sports.

    Americans will sacrifice nothing at all, to stop the bloodshed. They will not be inconvenienced one iota to fight for their civil liberties, jobs, social fabric, absolutely nothing and it’s sickening!
    I was done with sportsball the the minute the Kapernick taking a knee bullshit started, and even before that, the increasing presence of ghetto culture and the breast cancer awareness pounding non stop for a month. I am not going to waste my time and money, to be lectured to about anything political. Part of the reason people enjoy sports is as an escape from all of that and the grind of daily living.

    Sports is truly the refuge of the terminally stupid. Whites paying to watch a bunch of low I.Q. monkeys throw a ball around is one of the biggest cons of our age. It’s almost up there with religion as a refuge for the mentally challenged. None of these Jig ball players would give their fans the sweat off their balls. If you are a White fan the most you can expect from them would be for them to fuck your daughter if she is young and cute.

    How many contributors or responders to UNZ are NOT white? Very few I guess hence the commenting is normally skewed against the reactions of not-white people for the many stupid and outlandish things they do, react to provocations they face or the openly amoral behaviour.
    My country, South Africa, is a basket case but for a few years into our democracy, wonders happened.
    When the ANC took over, our national debt (BoP, etc., etc. ) was horrendous and a BLACK government, after the first five years, had a surplus, positive BoP, etc. It implies that black governments can govern for the benefit of all.
    Let’s look at why not-whites, whether in South Africa or the USA, do not seem to have the same ‘achievements’ our white counterparts have.
    One of most important foundations of life, the family unit, was destroyed. Conditions in the bantustans were conducive to the destruction of that family unit. Fathers, young men were forced to seek employment (or starve) on the gold mines. Education for the masses was non-existent as for every $10 spent on a white child, $4 was spent on a ‘coloured’/Asian child and $1 spent on a black child. Fathers living in hostels have to sent some of their meagre earnings to sustain their family ‘back home’ and invariably found himself another girlfriend/wife to support. Illegitimate children resulted.
    The hopeless humiliation a black father must have felt when a 19-year old white policeman humiliates him in front of his family; the utter disgust the black son must have felt towards his father for not being ‘a man’?
    Whites, through the barrel of a gun, acquired vast tracts of land (in RSA and USA). The monies lie with those who have real estate and other manifestations of wealth. Slavery was abolished some 70 years ago in USA; Apartheid was abolished 26 years ago in RSA but the power still resides in those who have had centuries of exploitation to consolidate their material positions.
    How do people who have been exposed to centuries of deprivation, humiliation, gutter education, family breakages, etc. expect to conform to norms and behaviours set out by the masters?
    These jocks are a tiny sliver of wealthy sportsmen and it will not last long but even some wealthy sportsmen’s concerns are raised when they see systemic deprivations and injustices being doled out to people ‘like them’?
    What non-violent alternative is open to show their empathy and solidarity? Do condemn violence, proliferation of social ills, amorality etc., like we all certainly do but do we ever condemn in equal measure the purveyors, the progenitors which resulted in the effect, with the same vehemence? Not.

  25. Any white person watching this shite needs to have a good hard look in the mirror.

    Each time they kneel or wear clothing with the name of some low-life emblazoned on it, they should be encouraged to donate their weeks’ earnings to a good cause. Failing that, drop them off at Liberia. About 20 miles offshore.

    I am not a big fan of spectators sports. I get its appeal, but not the excessive passion that it creates in some people, some ready to kill or beat others for “their team” – as if “their team” cared in any way about them or saw them as anything else than an idiot to fleece.

    In particular, I never liked and never understood the popularity of “football” (which should be called something else, perhaps “American rugby”, to differentiate it from real British football). Even football, i.e. soccer, which I used to watch every now and then years ago, lost most of its appeal when it started to be Africanized.

    But perhaps the elite miscalculates. Boxing lost its attraction for most (white) people when there were no more white people fighting. Who wants to watch only blacks, indistinguishable from one another, pummelling each other? You need someone you can identify with. The same for soccer in Europe, who wants to cheer for a “French” African team, the game is losing its appeal among middle-class whites as it africanizes, it becomes only a very low-class thing.

    Cycling, figure skating and most winter sports are still mostly white (and Asian), so there’s that.

    There will be no coming back from this for the pro sports leagues. By the time the owners realize what a grave mistake they’ve made, it’ll be too late.

    Against my better judgment, knowing full well that the Jew-owned bread and circuses distracted white men and harnessed their tribal instincts into something Jew-approved, I continued to watch all four major sports for years. That ended permanently after the Fentanyl Floyd fiasco and the absolutely ruthless anti-white rhetoric that has followed in its wake. I am finished, for good, and I am watching their ratings crash and burn with joy.

  35. I think that this BLM/taking a knee(grow) posturing is just a minor intersectional fad with what is being pushed into people’s minds outside of sports. By what logic the owners allowed this to happen is mysterious. Do they think that Antifa is their fan base?

    Regardless, the real demise of sports will come with the snowflake revolution, cohorts that are alien to physical pursuits, discipline (training), having the ‘t’ levels required for healthy competition with a added dollop of not being able to quit staring at small screens.

    Add in a diet of junk food, mommies that push ‘specialness’ but don’t want their precious spawn getting hurt or even being competitive which would be a symptom of toxic masculinity (whatever that is) and an emasculated father (in intact homes) who is too beat up by life to toss a ball around with someone who even then wouldn’t put his device down.

    This cohort will kill professional sports in two ways, eventually not provide the next generations of athletes as well as not watch the product in any whichever way it is presented on outmoded media. We don’t even have to consider going to a live game at this point because as the author points out the advertising revenue is the lifeline.

    That sports team owners couldn’t see this even pre-Covid is astounding. I think that even NFL franchises would be worth less by at least a billion dollars on average now assuming that one could even find a greater fool.

    In my immediate area there are several major golf courses that would have been conceived and built about 20 years ago. They have been near empty and offering ridiculous inducements for at least 15 years. The owners may be forgiven for not reading the generational tea leaves in this instance but the demise of golf is surely a canary in the sports coalmine. Too much money required, too much outdoors, too little excitement. Pure anachronism.

    I suppose that professional sports, like empires emerge, grow, peak, degenerate and then die out. Different ones at different rates.

    Good riddance to all of it. You’re not going to replace us, rub it in our faces, and then on top of it all expect me to pay for it.

  37. Black professional athletes need some serious redlining for their own good. Restrict what they can buy, invest most of their net salaries in trusts to support them after their sports careers, and pay them enough of an allowance for basic living expenses but nothing else. Like what happened with the original practice of redlining, you have to force blacks to live frugally.

    On a local level sports doesn’t seem to exist anymore. I realized at one point that I’d spent the entire summer driving through my city and surrounding suburbs, past any number of neighborhood baseball fields, basketball courts and tennis courts, and they were always completely empty. Even more bizarre, my summer flew by without seeing one single kid outside riding a bicycle! I suspect kids have all been taken over by their computer screens. Invasion of the Body Snatchers indeed.

    I think everyone is profoundly tired of being talked down to by celebutards, illiterate athletes, bubble-headed actresses and the never-ending line of odiously smug Jews (Streisand, Reiner, Midler, etc).

    Simpiwe takes us out behind the woodshed, and inadvertently reveals black logic along the way.

    My country, South Africa, is a basket case but for a few years into our democracy, wonders happened.

    See? Blacks pulled it off for four or five years, ergo they’re qualified to govern. Even though it all falls apart in devastating fashion shortly thereafter.

    When the ANC took over, our national debt (BoP, etc., etc. ) was horrendous and a BLACK government, after the first five years, had a surplus, positive BoP, etc. It implies that black governments can govern for the benefit of all.

    So while I’m assuming control of the government, I’m also going to stop fixing the roads, inspecting the meat, investigating corruption. Voila, surplus! Which is also why it all falls apart in devastating fashion shortly thereafter.

    Let’s look at why not-whites, whether in South Africa or the USA, do not seem to have the same ‘achievements’ our white counterparts have.

    Here’s why:
    1) Racism in employment
    2) Racism in education
    3) Mistresses are expensive (no really, read it for yourself)
    4) Racism in very young (19) cops
    5) Racism in real estate “through the barrel of a gun”

    Slavery was abolished some 70 years ago in USA

    So, 1950 then?

    but the power still resides in those who have had centuries of exploitation to consolidate their material positions.

    6) Historical racism. Y’all were mean to us in 1592, so where’s my reparations?

    How do people who have been exposed to centuries of deprivation, humiliation, gutter education, family breakages, etc. expect to conform to norms and behaviours set out by the masters?

    I dunno, let’s ask Thomas Sowell or Larry Elder or Jason Whitlock or Clarence Thomas.

    What non-violent alternative is open to show their empathy and solidarity? Do condemn violence, proliferation of social ills, amorality etc., like we all certainly do but do we ever condemn in equal measure the purveyors, the progenitors which resulted in the effect, with the same vehemence? Not.

    Seems like Simpiwe is losing control of his narrative a l’il bit by this point (a 15-minute attention span is a tough cross to bear), but I think he’s saying George Floyd hasn’t been sufficiently sanctified yet.

    Okay, here’s a counter-question: courtesy of website heyjackass.com, can you give me even ONE name of the 512 murdered, or the 2491 wounded, just this year, and just in Chicago? Almost all of them black. The 4000 black victims in 2020 make a farce of the NINE blacks killed by the police in 2019 (seven of whom were violently resisting arrest).

    Wake me when black people get their shit together. I’m lookin’ at you, Simpiwe.

    Recent viewership of the NBA play-offs is down about 20% compared to last year’s numbers,

    I cannot understand how any self-respecting white person would turn on the television station to be lectured at by black athletes celebrating BLM. The number of white people watching the NBA or the NFL at this time should be rapidly approaching ZERO.

    Black criminality is the problem, not white racism directed at the peaceful black people who everyone knows are model citizens wherever they live. How can one stomach such hypocrisy from the very group of people committing all the crime?

    Whites are by and large fools, hence easily manipulated and controlled and incapable of standing on principle.

    They get insulted and insulted and humiliated and keep coming back for more. It does not require a profile in courage to turn off the damn television set and strike your own blow for integrity.

    How any white person at this point in time could watch an NFL football game or NBA basketball game is beyond my powers of comprehension. If baseball is supporting this bullshit then it should be boycotted as well.

    BLM is an abomination and any organization supporting it should be boycotted, even if it means finding something more meaningful to do on the weekend than watching endless football and basketball games.

    Your final paragraph makes it seem that you’re being sarcastic, but the tone throughout the rest of your post is one of seriousness. The content of your post is hugely inaccurate, and it’s clear that you know little about NCAA D1 wrestling. Not all of the universities in the US push the woke narrative to the extent that the Ivy League and EIWA (Cornell’s conference) schools do. In addition, Ivy League schools are not near the top in NCAA D1 wrestling. Cornell has had some impressive squads, but they aren’t knocking on the door of the top 10, nor are Princeton or UPenn, the only other decent Ivy League teams.

    “Some of the schools in the MidWest might have Wrestlers who have traditional values” This quote, are you serious? What are the top D1 NCAA teams? Do you even know? Penn State, Iowa, the Ohio State, Nebraska, Missouri, Michigan, Arizona State, NC State, Wisconsin, North Carolina, Lehigh, Pitt. This is deplorable land. Additionally, the values of wrestling ARE traditional values: work hard, train hard, sportsmanship, loyalty, teamwork, meritocracy. Have you heard the top guys speak? Some of the biggest names in the past five years: Kyle Snyder, Bo Nickal, Jason Nolf, all Christians who give it all for God. And the coaches: yes, Tom Brands has traditional values, as do Cael Sanderson, Tom Ryan, John Smith, and nearly ALL the top head coaches. Again, without traditional values, you don’t succeed at this sport. Now let’s mention the fact that these guys devote their lives to a sport that doesn’t get them rich. The top guys go on to coach, like Sanderson at PSU, and he probably makes a good salary, but only a tiny fraction of what pro ball players make. And they don’t miss it. That’s what makes them who and what they are.

    . . . the NBA and NFL now offer enormous razzle-dazzle entertainment . . . What?

    According to a study by the Wall Street Journal, confirmed by others, the average NFL game has a little over 11 minutes of live action during the 1-hour game and 3-hour telecast. The rest is the 20 commercial breaks with 10 commercials each, endless sideline shots of coaches grimacing, replays, and yet more advertising coming from the millionaire good ol’ boys providing the jackass, crackerbarrel commentary–and all to watch white-hating negroes in Spandex run around for 11 minutes.

    The brainwashing of America’s white men is so great they view watching this crap as a measure of their manhood. The typical fan cannot process the fact that he sits in front of a giant-screen TV for 3 hours, maybe twice on Sundays, to jump up and down over barely 11 minutes of the nearly robot-like moves necessary for the blacks on the field to execute like trained apes. Let’s also add the grinning mockery of the (mainly) Jewish owners who pay white cheerleaders along the sidelines to simulate orgasm whenever some black runs away or catches others on the field. Hooray for white women ritualistically choosing black athletes with an IQ of 85 over the white men in their lives who’re so boring they think manliness is all about duty, honor, and loyalty to their women.

    The NBA might be worse with a 3-hour telecast for a 48-minute game. I used to watch but decades ago began noticing that blacks were given a free pass to palm the ball, turn it over, take any number of steps per bounce, do traveling jump stops, set moving blocks or barge under the boards so long as the one on the receiving end was white, and take up to 3-1/2 steps on a layup, which, in the latter case, the metropolitan soy boys in the stands get on their feet to cheer since they have no concept of sport other than choosing soccer to conceal their unmanly inadequacy on the playing field.

    Some here have criticized the suggestion of others to get the hell outdoors and do something with your family and friends and skip slurping beer like it was a baby bottle and you were an infantilized function of Jewish manipulation. Those who object are obviously the ones wearing a LeBron jersey to bed at night and need to go slurp a Lite beer while they’re getting off watching white-hating blacks. The disgracefully homoerotic submission to black male agressiveness such that white men praise rather than chase white-hating, malignant blacks out of town is sadly reflected in the homoerotic submission we see on the part of metrosexual cops when black rioters back them down like the soy boys so many have become from watching “professional sports” in their free time. No amount of materialism can overcome or conceal this level of spiritual rot among America’s white men.

    Team owners, like media owners, are nearly all Jewish

    You seem to think that “team owners and executives” are passive onlookers to the ‘social justice’ movement and not the driving force of team images and player’s behavior.

    You write:

    “These owners and executives (nearly all of whom are white) know firsthand that these athletes have short attention spans and are easily seduced by trendy slogans. Better to ride out the crisis that attempt to reason with these multi-millionaires.”

    “Owners and executive” are “riding out the crisis”. They are passive on lookers?

    But you ignore the fact that owners and executives are part of the same socio-economic class as the news media owners and executives that are driving the mass protest with virtual 24/7 coverage and sensational one-sided reporting, and corporate owners who support the mass protest.

    In short, it is the mega Billionaire owners not the Millionaire players who create the sports image. And, it is reasonable to conclude that the Billionaire team owners and the Billionaire media owners and Billionaire corporate owners all have a common social agenda.

    You note: “Owners and executives are nearly all white.”

    But, you omit that they are also nearly all Jewish.

    And, has been amply documented in these Unz pages, the Jewish Billionaire owners of sport teams and mass media and other corporations all have a common social agenda that they are more than willing to spend enormous income or forgone revenue to support the Jewish social agenda.

    The broader sociological question about the current cultural upheaval being experience in America: why are mega-billionars (sports, media, corporations, etc) so hell bent on changing American culture.

    What we are experiencing is not about the mass media reporting ‘social justice’. Rather it is a top to bottom change in current and historical culture.

    In short, America is Not, as you write, “being educated on race relations by athletes who could not write a coherent essay on the topic even if their lives depended on it?”

    America is being educated by the very rich and literate people who measure their income in three figure billions; many of whom have dual citizenship (de facto if not de jure).

  66. There is nothing threatening about kneeling. Kneeling is generally a sign of respect. Colin Kaepernick famously invested kneeling with a somber meaning, a reminder of how far we still have to go to realize the high ideal of equal protection under the law.

    Science tells us our amygdalae activate as soon as our brains spot deviations from routine, social norms, and in-group tendencies. We want to know what’s happening and why. Our initial reaction is a strong need to know if the deviation poses a threat to us or our group. Behavioral experiments have found that high-power people (say, the president or members of the numerical majority) are more likely to misinterpret nonverbal behavior by people they perceive as being below them in the social hierarchy. The experience of having power makes people less accurate in reading suffering on the faces of strangers. This empathy deficit has been found in many clinical studies.

    Thus, we should not be surprised that many white people misread the meaning of “taking the knee” and fail to see the respect, concern, and even vulnerability inherent in kneeling. Unfortunately it is also the case that some white people may want to see black people terrorized by police and politically disenfranchised. Any effort by blacks, no matter how deferential, to raise these issues will incite anger from those who benefit—emotionally or materially—from America’s racial hierarchy.

    There may also be a “Plan B” to resolve the current “image problems” —avoid troublemakers ostensibly for reasons other than their anti-white views. The NBA now has some 108 players born overseas, a group probably disinclined to mix sports and radical racial politics. The NFL, of course, lacks this option but it has recently stepped up its policy of expelling players with legal problems (especially domestic violence) and it is conceivable that punishments will disproportionately target those outspoken on race. In any case, professional athletes generally have short careers, and today’s vocal protestors will soon be gone without anybody having to push them out the door for their views.

    Most importantly, the Goose is protected by a Pretorian Guard–team owners, league and TV executives and hundreds more whose rich livelihood spends on high TV ratings—and these nonplayers decide who makes the team and who goes home to Walmart. That this guard currently acquiesces with the calls for social justice, painting BLM on arena floors and all the rest is not a sign of their deep ideological commitment. These owners and executives (nearly all of whom are white) know firsthand that these athletes have short attention spans and are easily seduced by trendy slogans. Better to ride out the crisis that attempt to reason with these multi-millionaires.

    So the “white” Jews and the oligarchs will see to it that uppity Black millionaires with “short attention spans” stay in their place or their Judeo massa is going to send them back to Walmart?

    You megalomaniac Jews really do believe that your insider access to the Fed makes you God, don’t you Weissberg? But the Fed’s success and attendant dollar hegemony are only a function of the health of the American economy, and a dysfunctional, Jewish-infected America means a dysfunctional, Jewish-infected Fed, which means dollar hegemony is increasingly a thing of the past.

    In other words, smug Jews already killed the golden goose, and dumb, arrogant, Golem American Blacks are simply acting in the image of their maker.

    And the weak, greedy and corrupt of post WW2 America that allowed Jewish bankers and the Zionist conspiracy to infiltrate what was a relatively healthy country were accessories to the crime.

    Have you had kids who try to play a sport in the last decade or two? Everything is so well organized, often by over invested adults. Even kindergarteners have to sell coffee mugs and other things to help support their little sports leagues. By third grade the advanced kids are playing select soccer/baseball which takes them out of state to compete. Parents are spending big bucks to send their kids to sports camps in the summer to improve their skills. I know of parents who do nothing but chauffeur their kids from competition to competition all summer. More kids are now having career ending injuries before they even start high school.

    I agree that it’s far better for kids to play sports than to sit on the couch web surfing. But the way kids’ sports are organized these days and the intense pressure that comes with it due to college admissions/pro sports potential are counterproductive. By third grade those who are not “gifted” in sports are already feeling the heat and ready to drop out. Kids’ sports are now a mostly upper middle class endeavour with far too much adult involvement. Schools should open their grounds for sports as after school activities, let the kids organize themselves, run around and play for fun.

    The elites are the ones who are the problem. Without them, blacks and whites in this country would generally do fine. Elites, however, made a big mistake when they took over back in the 1960s. They made it clear that they wouldn’t tolerate racism, which was good, but they also made it clear that they weren’t going to criticize blacks for anything they did. And that was bad because you want to be able to criticize people when they are self-destructive. Our elites have glorified black criminality – Black Lives Matter should really be called Black Criminality Matters – while saying nothing against the “acting white” syndrome that forces blacks to refrain from trying to do well in school. Some tough love is needed here, but our elites won’t use it. And so when they see that blacks don’t usually get high-status jobs, they insist that there is some hidden racism at work, when anyone can see that it’s simply because they don’t value working hard in school. If elites weren’t around, this is what ordinary people would tell any blacks who complained. End of discussion. Likewise, if elites weren’t around, ordinary people would tell any blacks worried about the killing of George Floyd that he was a criminal and that they shouldn’t care. End of discussion. As for sports, the athletes who complain about how racist America is are living proof that it isn’t racist. Plus, there are plenty of foreign blacks who want to come here, so if elites weren’t around, those blacks who complained about racism in America would be reminded of these facts. End of discussion. Instead our elites butt in and give their crazy explanations about “systemic racism.” And since they control the Megaphone, through their dominance of the media and our schools, that is what both blacks and whites hear. Ordinary people have different and more sensible opinions, but they don’t have access to the Megaphone, and so stupidity reigns.

    Boycotts aren’t always possible. I went to pay my power bill last week and near the top of the page it said “Black Lives Matter”

    Being a public utility, obviously I cannot boycott them, especially living in suburban Michigan. I called up the customer service and let the company have it. The guy said I was not the first person to complain and that he hadn’t thought about the public utility aspect. This isn’t like McDonald’s taking the knee, annoying as that is.

    Very well said, but the Jewish agenda isn’t merely changing America’s culture. As E. Michael Jones and Kevin MacDonald recently argue with facts, organized Jewry is engaged in a war of extermination against the white race. The evidence includes, not least, 600 Jewish organizations issuing a public manifesto in support of BLM and Antifa’s riots, arson, looting, insurrection, and stomping whites into puddles of blood in the streets. And some say all whites need is a wake-up call?

  88. Sigh. Amerika is verloren. The long march started quite awhile ago with the distractions of sports and other entertainments. There are still way too many Sheeple, Normies, and Cucks in my A/O and throughout this corrupt, syphilitic country who idolize these tatted-up, ignorant, Watusi rapists and thugs. I find it absolutely disgusting.
    Over thirty years ago, Sports Illustrated ran an article about the number of sports stars who had bastard children around the country, due to hook-ups they made while playing road games. Larry Bird was one of the players mentioned-a white man. No telling how many of the resulting pregnancies from these trysts were ended by the murder of the unborn, innocent child.
    H.L. Mencken once wrote: “No one ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people.” And remember, that was written close to 100 years ago. So the long march continues on to the ultimate path of perdition. All an old man like me can do at this point is keep prepping for the inevitable and brace for impact. This country deserves a huge Divine Chastisement for so many valid reasons. Bleib ubrig.

    If things keep going as they have been for the past 6 months then eventually whites will “take the gloves off” as the saying goes and these players and the many Jewish owners of the teams will take it in their wallets. These athletes will learn that the only reason they are wealthy is because they live in a wealthy white country (now perhaps only nominally) and their athletic talents would leave them dirt poor in their native Africa. They are extremely privileged in ways most whites (including cops) can only dream of. If it gets to that point, and it could happen, then the US will have much bigger problems to worry about, like a full blown race war. I am not saying this will happen but there are constant attacks against whites that are never reported in the national media outlets and 90% of the people never hear about them, but people see what is happening in their own geographical areas.

    In Louisville, Kentucky recently 2 militias, one white, the other black, both heavily armed and only miles apart marched. The commentary is biased against whites and in favor of blacks but if you listen to what the blacks say and the whites say, the white militiamen are reserved and the blacks (and their white supporters) say they are here to fight and people will die. Eventually the biased white hating media will be ignored by whites and they will organize to defend themselves and then we could have a race war. Right now blacks kill whites like it’s nothing and the lying Jewish media has the blacks convinced they are the victims. It is reminiscent of the media that drove the world into WW II.

    It’s hard to believe that anyone could object to the Burn Loot Murder position that peaceful, innocent, hardworking, intelligent blacks have only other people and voodoo-like outside forces to blame for their multigenerational total failure as a people.

    As Burn Loot Murder terrorists deferentially execute police, shoot white mothers to death in cold blood and meekly smash through Michigan Avenue storefronts with multi-ton SUVs to loot Air Jordans, its tough to see how anyone could question the narrative of white America paving its road to ill-gotten prosperity over the top of angelic black bodies.

  132. The fact that Obama came out and suppressed this strike is encouraging for those of us who intend to profit from worsening economic conditions.

    It would indicate that both wings of the phony US political system are going to favor capital over labor and that the lien buying and executing members of the public have nothing to fear from either of them. Strikes, which are the use of labor power to gain concessions, are now considered “bad” by both major parties.

    The number of Judeo-crackers who observe the adage of “neither borrower nor lender be” is blessedly small is certainly no larger than those who believe in “avoiding foreign entanglements” or in the error of trading liberty for security. Another effect of conformist tendencies among the cracker is “keeping up with the Joneses”, so tthe response to declining salaries was to BORROW to close the gap and maintain a semblance of a white middle class, rather than strikes and other forms of labor action.

    This year’s election is clearly a contest between two right-wing candidates; each is right wing in the way that actually matters – economics. Both parties will continue to collude against the working man. The Republicans will rely on ideology here while the Democrats will continue to substitute wokeness for labor values and race war for class war.

    For those noble warriors who busy themselves by looking for and implementing techniques that weaken the Judeo-cracker system , the next few years should provide ample opportunities for small-scale operators to assail the Judeo-cracker supporters of the usury system by feeding them their own medicine. That would be the key opportunity in this crisis.

    Furthermore, entering the usury space puts you in competition with Uncle Chaim; it’s analogous to approaching him from behind, tapping him on one shoulder, and reaching over the other to steal a few morsels from his plate.

    Finally, key constituencies such as security professionals will be compromised by financial stress. Extant programs that were long ago created to deal with this may not be up to the present task.

    To the people who never watched sports and don’t have friends who watched sports, it seems odd that even with these players openly stating their hate for America and their fans… that there would still be people who watch. However, for someone who’s never tried heroine or had friends/family addicted to it, such a strong addiction probably seems like an oddity as well.

    Sports to a great many in this country is an opioid, and religion has been replaced by sports for these people. It’s like asking a radical Islamist to denounce their faith… ain’t gonna happen.

Sometimes I got to laugh at it with joke commentary like that, But most of the time it bothers me to no end, I wish we could go back to love of God and Country and a colorblind meritocracy, It may be too pessimistic, but I see the USA disintegrating into a 3rd World Country, I just turned 57 and it is unbelievable how much the USA has declined in my lifetime, Heck Politicians and CEO’s now regularly cave to a group that list’s on the front page of it’s Website on its Mission Statement DESTRUCTION OF FAMILY and Defund/abolish the police and is clearly Communist in it’s goals (Which has Never worked) The most Powerful Moment of the RNC for me was when the Man who was an Immigrant from Cuba said what the Left is saying sounds FAMILIAR to me, and he is about the age to know all about when Fidel Castro made CUBA Communist in 1959, I fear especially among our young people, many are stupid enough to vote this country into Communism, My Previous post was an attempt at Humor, But Seriously What the Hell Happened? Why is the Far Left Nonsense not just dismissed as Insane?

    Lomachenko won two gold medals at the Olympics. White boxers are dominating these days, and many of them are from former Soviet block countries. They have amazing fundamental skills, honed by large numbers of amateur matches. They are a joy to watch: Lomachenko, Beterbiev, Gennady Golovkin. I would even put Naoya Inoue in this group, not as a former Soviet nation, but as a boxer with many amateur fights and incredible fundamental skills. The COVID disappearance of wrestling made me turn my eye to boxing, and I was pleased to see these boxers and their excellence. The power of Beterbiev is incredible. GGG, now perhaps past his prime, has fantastic power as well. Inoue is a super exciting fighter, and if you want to see the fight of the year, watch the entire fight between Inoue and Donaire from 2019. You are correct to say that many of these fighters stay amateur for a long time, but after they go pro they dominate and are able to make a lot of money in a short time. I didn’t even mention Tyson Fury, another excellent white fighter.

Early in 1968, some black track and field athletes received death threats regarding competing in the white man’s track meets. We don’t know what kind of peer pressure is going on right now but it must be overwhelming.

    Spoken like a true Pennsylvania man, just like me! I know, it’s difficult to come around to freestyle when you have been steeped in the Pa. tradition of folkstyle wrestling. Pennsylvania has the best folkstyle wrestling in the world, and when you’re a part of it from the little guys through junior and high school wrestling, and understand what “the Big Dance” at Hershey means, and then Cael and his ongoing dynasty at PSU, it’s difficult to transition to freestyle. I know, and my nephew was a PIAA AAA State medalist. I did make the transition, though, and I appreciate freestyle wrestling as an even purer form than folkstyle.

    I’m sure glad that the Magicman was also able to transition, as was Zain, Nolf, and Bo. The Nittany Lion Wrestling Club has a big stable of potential international medalists, including Kyle Snyder, once an enemy of the PSU program.

    At least a ball player is based on talent so it is something earned. A black male model is part of the social engineering whereby people are indoctrinated to accept black men as handsome. I’m not saying some are not but before 1968 there were virtually no blacks on TV and most of the population did not consider black men handsome, nor black women beautiful. There are also beautiful black women but most people would not have said that before 1970. These changes then naturally led to promoting miscegenation between blacks and whites to the point it became annoying to many people to constantly see mixed race couples on television. Also, in many movies and on TV the black guy is often presented as masculine, intelligent and attractive to white women, and the white guy as uncool or a loser.

    I constantly see experts on here (with at the very least a high school diploma, I’m sure) informing readers that there are no conspiracies and no Jews involved in these non-existing conspiracies. For an education on Jews heavy involvement in conspiracies and what I mention above start reading http://www.theoccidentalobserver,net. You can really learn something. Many of the writers are PHD’s and experts in their fields. Most use pseudonyms because Jews have made their opinions worthy of what was done to “witches” a few centuries ago, so it’s almost impossible for a PHD with an incorrect outlook to get hired by a university.

  195. Prior to World War II professional basketball and football barely existed as spectator sports. Americans flocked to boxing and horse racing, not the Decatur Staleys, the forerunner of the NFL Chicago Bears.

An employee at a company involved in wrestling gear posted on the company facebook page. He posted accurate info about BLM. This heresy was so egregious that the man had to leave the company. Even worse, a bunch of college wrestling stars posted on social media – horror at the truth about BLM and even disassociation from the company in some cases.

    So the brainwashing is that deep.
