NFL Favorability Crashes

Tyler Durden's picture

According to a new POLITICO/Morning Consult poll, the National Football League is seen as more unfavorable than ever before

"The NFL's net favorability has dropped from 30% on September 21 to 17% on September 28," the poll shows.

Do you have a favorable or unfavorable impression of the following - National Football League?

Among Trump supporters, as would be expected, the collapse is remarkable...

Source: Morning Consult Intelligence

On September 21, 25% of Trump supporters said they had a very favorable view of the NFL and 11% had a very unfavorable view.

As of Sept 28, those numbers have dramatically changed with 33% of Trump supporters say they have a very unfavorable view of the NFL and 16% report having a very favorable view.

Simply put, change or Trump will be proved correct...

 

Notably, as Townhall reports, during Thursday night's NFL games, players stood and locked arms during the Anthem rather than kneeling as more than 200 players did over the weekend.

On a side note, The Daily Sheeple's Alex Thomas brought this shocking story to our attention...

A new report from The Armstrong and Getty Radio Show has sent shockwaves throughout the sports world after it was claimed that members of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders may have purposefully allowed their star quarterback to get sacked multiple times after he refused to kneel during the National Anthem.

If true, this would essentially mean that an NFL football game was illegally thrown over anger that one of the teams star white players did not believe that kneeling during the nation’s anthem was the correct way to protest supposed racial injustice in America.

In other words, an epic level scandal.

During the anthem, virtually the entire team was seen kneeling other than the teams coaches and star quarterback Derek Carr. Unfortunately, this may have not set well with the team’s offensive line as they were apparently the players who spearheaded the entire idea to kneel as a team in the first.

“This is one hell of a scandal with the NFL, could ruin the whole league,” claimed the show before detailing the fact that Carr was sacked two times in a row on the teams second drive and that the team’s usually dependable center snapped the ball at the wrong time in three different instances. Extremely capable receivers also made multiple “weird” drops of passes thrown by Carr that T.V. announcers even noted at the time.

The radio show then revealed bombshell “insider information” from an “extremely reliable” source who claimed that members of the Oakland Raiders did indeed throw the game as a sort of punishment for Carr choosing to not use the countries anthem to make a political statement.

“He wants to stand alone, he can stand alone on the field,” one of the teams offensive lineman said, according to the shows source. Keep in mind, the offensive line are literally the guys whose job it is to protect the quarterback, in this case the star player who didn’t kneel.

Amazingly, the circumstantial (and possible direct) proof didn’t end there as the show then claimed that this same source also revealed that a local team reporter got wind of the story and asked a team official for comment. What he was apparently told in response has all the hallmarks of a team trying to cover up a major scandal.

“If you report on this, you will be blackballed, you will not get access to the Raiders period,” the reporter was supposedly told. “Your career covering the team will be over”.

While there are obviously major legal and ethical issues if this is true, it also paints a sad picture of a football league divided by a political and media establishment all too happy to cause as much racial divide in the country as possible. For as long as Americans focus on differences between each other, the global elites power remains completely unthreatened.

FULL REPORT:

Authors Note: Its also important to consider that there is almost no chance that any member of the Raiders organization, whether coaches, the front office, or players (especially Carr himself) will publicly admit that this happened if it is indeed true. The sheer amount of mayhem it would cause is enough to keep almost anyone quiet. Anonymous player quotes and sources may be all we will ever have to go on.

"...members of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders may have purposefully allowed their star quarterback to get sacked multiple times after he refused to kneel during the National Anthem..."

So because the white QB refused to protest violence and racism, the black linemen conspired to have him violently assaulted?

 

Please explain to me what, exactly, these, "professional," athletes are protesting, if not violence and racism?

Dumb white American males enable these Trayvon NFL, NBA and NCAA thugs.   The only thing worse than these Trayvons are the whites who support them especially dumb white southerners who love their college ball Trayvon. 

Also retard Texans who will still love the Cowboys after they took a knee to support the Soros-BLM'er who assasinated 5 Dallas cops.   4 dead white cops and 1 white hispanic.  This is what white Cowboy fans stand for - for cop killers.  Scum.

Many whotes are really stupid especially ball team fan boys.  Retards.

Watching this beats watching the NFL games any day.... Let them reap the harvest of what they have sown. Low IQ's just can't get it that their virtue signaling and shallow whining is a losing proposition. Pops used to say, if you're not bringing a solution to the table stfu, symbolic whining about problems is a problem in and of itself.

it's not just the kneeling.  the black power fists are thrust in fans faces throughout the games

These football players are oppossed to anyone else's right to free speech excepting their own.

 

Hope the NFL goes bankrupt and dissolves.

Time for it to end and people to move on to more pleasant entertainment that is more pro-American.

skip the NFL and go watch a good high school football game this weekend.  Though from California, I love Tx High School Football.

oh, and while we're boycotting things...I urge all Houston teams to completely boycott all Katy High Tiger games...to protest their massive recruiting program.   I urge all players to let Katy High score 100 points.  who cares.  qbs throw the ball out of bounds, etc...don't let the Katy High All Star team players get any highlight footage for college recruiters.  spread the word.

Most of us born in a state south of the Mason-Dixon line can't really relate to ice hockey.  I've tried to get into it, but I just don't give a fuck. Also, I hate the idea of a game ending in a tie.

kermudgen's picture

I now live South of the M/D line and still enoy my hockey.  The next time you watch a game try these "game experience enhancement" techniques.

 

1.  Choose the appropriate Bruins jersey.

     - Is it a home or away game?

     - Are they playing an Original Six team?

     - Can we win with a Cam Neeley jersey or do we go Bobby Orr?

2.  Say a small prayer. asking the Lord to let our boys play their best tonight and the Canadiens lose.  (Even if they're not playing the Canadiens.)

     - Take a shot of CC.  

     - Grab a beer from the fridge.  

3.  Chase all non B's fans from room and turn on very large HDTV.

     - Enjoy!

Oh for crying out loud you know what got this started. It was Kappernick who started taking a knee last year and among his beefs were cops beating up or killing blacks. You know that. 

You and just about everybody else makes fun of this but I think it was also last week in St. Louis a cop (white if we must) was found not guilty of anything after an altercation with a black guy. What might of pissed some people off was the cop saying he was going to shoot the guy on his dashcam. Moments later he shoots the guy. Moments after that the cop is in the back seat of dead guy's car finding the gun he felt threatened by. The threatening gun was not found to have the dead guy's dna on it, only the cops.

Would you be happy if that happened to your kid?

Last week when the maverick outsider started browbeating this issue there were about ten guys doing this. Trump clearly has found a safe space full of right wing snowflakes to troll with this compulsory national anthem fluff, because he must sense his "base" is drifting on him for flopping on so much of his campaign rhetoric. It's silly.

Thursday Night Football ratings won’t be easy to spin this week

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2017/09/29/thursday-night-football-...

CBS and NFL Network combined for a 9.9 overnight rating. That makes the game the most-watched TV program in America last night, and it’s an increase over the 8.6 rating that CBS and NFL Network got from last year’s Bears-Packers Thursday night game, which was in Week Seven. It’s also a big increase over the 4.8 rating that last year’s Thursday night Week Four game received, although that game was only on NFL Network, not on CBS.

Well chunga, for fuckin sure. Lets just ALL take a damned knee. Lets take a knee every time we see new statistics showing black on white crime statistically well above white on black....a continuing and escalating CRISIS. Lets all take a fuckin knee because we see black government representatives making outrageous RACIST lies on the floor of our congress before God and the TV cameras. Let's take a fuckin knee because a black man shot five cops dead in Dallas and BLM praised it, and NOBODY said SHIT. And Blacks have shot plenty of cops....and we wonder why they shoot first and ask questions later.

Lets just take a fuckin knee dude, for ALL of this shit. I mean, if we're going to be SNOWFLAKES, why the fuck not, right? We aren't supposed to do any complaining are we? We are supposed to be "better" than them. Take the high road, turn the other cheek, look the other way, FUCKING KNEEL BEFORE THEM, RIGHT. That's what we've been doing, while apologizing and backing up the whole way. WHERE has the white race taken a stand, said enough! or even tried to slow it down?

TAKE A FUCKIN KNEE.....YOU BET. Go grab an arm and show them some solidarity, you'll feel right as rain.

I bet you the ones that are locking arms now are largely doing so against Trump's grandstanding about compulsory national anthems and his saying he's fire sons of bitches for alleged respect for the military. Well I got news for you, it was not these 10 football player that extended the "mission" in Afghanistan, like he said he would, it was Trump.

There's my issue with this grandstanding right there. Neither he, NOR YOU, nor anybody else has legitimately explained what on earth US troops are doing in Afghanistan. Chest beating about other's obligations of patriotism while ignoring or brushing that off is not patriotic to me one fucking bit. It's thoughtless symbolism and stupid. This is like the Huffpo crowd adoring Barkey over one of his insincere gestures, so knock yourself out.

That is just ONE of the flops by POTUS TRUMP that CANDIDATE TRUMP said wasn't going to happen. 

//edit to add, a lot of you are indeed racists, go ahead and do a word count on "nigger", "chimp", HH likes to actually paste in photos of apes//

//edit again you are also probably a racist because you didn't say one damn word about the cop's dashcam and the threatening gun, but whipped out a bunch of statistics that surely you'd do if that was your kid//

Oldwood's picture

Come on. YOU know this is about Trump, pretty much always has been. They constantly create provocations and then wait for him to respond.

This one was an easy one, and while I understand your issues with American policies AND Trump, why are we forced to defend both to defend our country? Is it not OUR right? Is it only the progressives and Blacks who can legitimately speak out when they FEEL aggrieved? The statistics are in OUR favor when it comes to racial issues, but we refuse to push back because of things exactly like this,,,we don't want to be called names.

So a black guy gets murdered by a white cop. How many cops have been murdered? How many WHITES have been murdered by blacks and got off? So Trump has LIED or failed to live up to his promises (depends on you political tolerance). What of it? Blacks were enslaved in America 150 years ago. SO what? We can never say shit ever again? Fuck That.

Call me a fucking snowflake if you wish, but as I said in previous post, this is more progressive bullshit. WE KNOW how progressive snowflakes got their moniker. By running for safe spaces and lashing out violently against anyone who would THREATEN their delicate sensibilities. Have you seen ANY of that here? I don't give a fuck about names, but it does piss me off that we allow progressives to turn every world back against us. Conservatives are now Alt-right, or simply Nazis, fascists, racists, whatever fits the bill. By the far left naming their cult AntiFa, they have basically labeled their opposition as fascists....and we all just take it. At least blacks, for all their hypocrisy, will not stand for be called niggers. And I don't think they would stand for us calling ourselves AntiNig. We're too stupid to know that is exactly the equivalent of what they are calling US.

//edit: if racists on this site (or any other) disqualify ALL opinions, then whats the point?

//edit: if black America feels justified in dissing white America and our anthem and flag, what else qualifies? can white America disparage BLACK awards programs or MLK for ignorant shit that Jesse Jackson, Spike Lee or Sharpton spill out of their mouths? Is THAT okay by you? How about the NHL taking a knee in response to Obama talking about "police doing stupid things", or how about something simple like five cops shot in Dallas?

BULLSHIT

We re all free to say what we please, but not without consequence, and like it or not, this has consequence. Sorry if you think it is wrong. I think YOU are wrong.

chunga's picture

One last thing then I'm done for today. If Trump were not just pot-stirring here he blew *another* perfect opportunity after Charlottesville to REALLY go after bad gov actors, progressives, whatever they're called. Not just lip-service.

Both the mayor and the governor were publically at odds over what happened. OAN has a thing about that on youtube, did they fan the flames over there? Did they order the cops to not prevent what happened. Were they ordered to let the driver go?

We don't know because Trump's man Sessions immediately grandstanded that thing and said he was looking into charging the driver with civil rights violations and hate crimes.

Kappernick started taking his knees back when Barkey was presidont btw, so I don't know how he was making that about Trump.

They are not and I don't care. I do not like what Trump said because he is staking a moral high gound and it's him that's continuing to send troops to Afghanistan to kill and be killed without explaining why.  That is not patriotic at all as far as I'm concerned.

I'm not happy about that either.

The black NFL pussies are just like their BLM bros. They highlight the whitey is out to get us meme and ignore the rampant black on black crime. The odds of a black kid getting killed by cops is a drop in the bucket compared to that kid ending up dead at the hands of another black. Go look at the stats, a quick google search will show you. When these spoiled black players and their BLM pals take a knee and march in high crime black areas get back to me and it won't be anytime soon. Instead they do their thing in safe WHITE areas. In the end it's all about money and freedom. The black power structure is in a panic as more blacks get educated and move out of the hood and out from under black control and can vote for whoever they like. Al Sharpton and his ilk have been playing the race card for years and stealing their people blind and blaming it on whitey to get reelected to the gravy train. The whites stopped enslaving blacks long ago but black slavery in the US is alive and well and their black leadership heards them into government projects that the blacks turn into crime ridden ghettos as they destroy what was given to them. To continue the black enslavement and boost their bank accounts through corruption the blacks are pushing the whitey out to get you meme to the hilt and it's working. It's all about money and power and they could care less how many blacks kill each other as long as it profits them.

As far as the St Louis cop getting off blame the judge. The killer cop waived the right to a jury trial and the verdict was in the hands of a judge. One guy set this killer free and yet idiots like to blame a whole race.
