This article talks about how what NFL end zones will look like for the future. It says “The end zones at NFL stadiums will be stenciled with a pair of messages calling for an end to systemic racism throughout the 2020 season, Commissioner Roger Goodell revealed during a Tuesday conference call. The phrases ‘End racism’ and ‘It takes all of us’ will be seen in the 10-yard scoring areas at either end of the field, Goodell said.”

When it comes to PR stupidity, you can’t much worse than the NFL. The NFL, you’ll remember, is the pro sports league that thought that suspending Ray Rice for 2 games was sufficient after he assaulted his then-fiance coming out of an Atlantic City casino elevator. This year, the spineless ‘leaders’ of the NFL folded like a cheap suit when the players decided that they’d support the BLM organization. Had the NFL had a spine, they would’ve told the players they wouldn’t support terrorists like BLM. If you have a problem with the word terrorists, watch these videos, then tell me that word doesn’t fit:


BLM’s co-founders are admitted “trained Marxists.” Further, BLM stands for the destruction of the nuclear family. Why would the NFL want to connect with BLM? People are figuring out who BLM is and what they represent. This isn’t a winning situation for the NFL. If the NFL had someone smart running their PR operations, that person would’ve told them that it’s most important to not alienate anyone. When people tune out, which will happen this fall, revenues drop. The PR person should’ve asked the players what’s most important — to keep the fat paychecks coming or to establish a relationship with a radical activist organization?

The NFL and society would be farther better off if the players focused on fixing problems rather than starting a conversation. Anyone can start a conversation. Thus far, only President Trump has fixed any problems. When someone says that they’d like to start a conversation about race, it sounds like President Obama prepping for a beer summit. The Beer Summit didn’t do any harm but it didn’t fix anything, either.

  • Chad Q says:

    I have given up on any sport that panders to BLM which pretty much leaves me with nothing to watch but I have better things to do with my weekends. If NHL hockey goes full on BLM like the rest have done, I’ll be giving up my Wild season tickets. I don’t watch sports to watch a bunch of overpaid, undereducated, spoiled athletes tell me how I should act and bow o BLM. Shut the hell up, throw the ball, catch the ball, hit the ball, that’s all I ask.
