My iPhone gave me a discover a couple of days again. The approaching 5th anniversary my attending Tremendous Bowl LI on February 5th, 2017. Not likely attending, I used to be supervising the VIP entrance. I received to fulfill Girl Gaga, say howdy to Sir Elton John, noticed in passing Vice President Mike Pence, and shook palms with Terry Bradshaw. What an unbelievable week, and day.
I bought my home in 1999, and the very first thing I purchased for it was a DirectTV receiver. I needed their NFL package deal, having the ability to watch any recreation I needed (I’m a Saints fan since I used to be in diapers). I defined to folks, “If it wasn’t for that, I might have solely fundamental cable.” However since then, with the league changing into an anti-police, and customarily anti-American type of propaganda, I’ve stopped watching the video games. Two years in the past, I cancelled by service with DirectTV, saving if the NFL need’s to help home terrorist like BLM, I cannot give them any of my cash.
In a heated dialogue with a member of the family a couple of years again, we mentioned gamers kneeling in the course of the nationwide anthem. My member of the family was saying they’ll’t be compelled to face, and I used to be adamant that if I’m the proprietor and signing their paychecks, sure they’ll. But it surely was a continued degradation of what was as soon as an amazing piece of American society, skilled sports activities
Seeing multi-millionaires protesting “oppression” when they’re supplied a life unimaginable to 99.999999% of America’s inhabitants. The league minimal wage is 660K a yr. And they’re guarded by these identical cops they name murderers. I recall a workforce coming onto the sector shaking their arms up within the Mike Brown lie, “Arms up! Don’t shot!” My response was, “All cops on the market, refuse to work for these boastful sacks of s^&%! And after they get robbed, shot, or murdered, nice, inform them to name BLM!”
Not be outdone, league commissioner Roger Goodell is getting decrease and decrease. In the previous couple of years the NFL has used the halftime present to insult their viewers, and police particularly, one time after one other. In 2016, we had Beyonce and her anti-cop track Formation. In 2020, we received to see an open political message in Jennifer Lopez and Shakira exhibiting Hispanic youngsters in “cages.” These two girls appear to overlook one thing. The “cages” have been began underneath the Obama administration, not Trump.
And let’s not overlook Gillette company placing out a Tremendous Bowl advert on “poisonous masculinity,” sexual harassment and objectivation of girls. Bear in mind, “boys shall be boys…” From an organization that put out this image of girls in a earlier advert:
However to each, bear in mind this. We glance, or ought to I noticed regarded to the Tremendous Bowl (Or World Sequence, and so on.) as a diversion from life. We wish a while to only to get pleasure from ourselves, and it is a type of amusement. However Goodell strikes once more. The “leisure” for this yr’s Tremendous Bowl speaks for himself:
Keepin’ it actual. Let’s do it collectively.
Final Saturday, throughout CBS’s telecast of the Titans-Bengals playoff recreation, a business for Corona beer aired, starring Snoop Dogg, who, regardless of numerous arrests for weapons and medicines, has turn out to be essential to endorse merchandise.
So what if he luridly degrades ladies as certainly one of his shares in commerce if he can promote beer?
…And as I watched that Corona advert, I received to fascinated with Snoop Dogg’s violently anti-police, pro-crime vile and vulgar “artistry,” conscious that Roger Goodell appointed and anointed Snoop Dogg the headliner at this yr’s Tremendous Bowl halftime.
Maybe Goodell, additionally within the curiosity of maintaining it actual, wish to rap together with a “track” by Snoop and J5 Slap entitled, “Police.” Prepared, Roger? It reads thusly:
“All you n—as on the market,
Take your weapons that you just utilizing to shoot one another
And begin taking pictures these b—h-ass
That’ll impress a mother-f–king n—a like me…”
…5 NYPD officers have been shot within the first 20 days of this yr. And the man chosen by the NFL and accredited by Goodell to star on this yr’s halftime produces, data, sells and income from “artistry” advocating streets stuffed with the blood of cops and threats towards those that would assist clear up the shootings of cops and civilians…
And Goodell, the shameless $63 million per pandering phony, slaps “Cease Hate” and “Finish Racism” alongside the backs of finish zones and gamers’ helmets, then invitations Snoop Dogg to be the star of the Tremendous Bowl.
Possibly Snoop shall be granted a police escort to the stadium. For his security, in fact…
He doesn’t want an escort. Los Angeles, it’s completely secure. I imply, you mainly can’t get a gun on the market, proper?
I used to look at 4 video games per week, and even when I couldn’t stand the groups within the championship, I might watch the Tremendous Bowl. One of many greaest reminiscences I’ve from my yr in Korea was “Breakfast and the Tremendous Bowl.” It was an eighth Military half vacation (no formation earlier than midday) and we received the sport at 700am. We watched an amazing recreation (Tremendous Bowl XXIII, San Francisco pulling I out with 34 seconds lef) within the Officer Membership. Or once I was in Kuwait, we additionally received a half vacation, and have been allowed two beers (booze eventually!) when the NFL knew they have been right here to entertain the American folks. Not lecture us.
So subsequent Sunday, I believe I’ll be studying as a substitute of being glued to the TV. Goodbye NFL. It was good whereas it lasted.
