Bills kicker Steven Hauschka has spoken out about racial inequality. He says that it exists, and though most white people don’t understand it, they need to act. Responding to the petition sent to the NFL by several players, calling for the league to adopt and promote an, “Activism Awareness. Month.” Hauschka spoke with the Buffalo News, about ways of advancing the cause of racial inequality, which, some activist players believe is happening.

Blacks are what % of the NFL? Blacks are what % of the population?

We need more bald, slow white guys in the NFL and NBA for racial equality.

Too many black people are making millions of dollars in the NFL, NBA and MLB while the rest of us live paycheck to paycheck. And those millions get spent on booze, drugs and women, which we can’t.

Now THAT is racism.

At least in the NFL , traumatic brain injury is a form of IQ leveling

I guess outside of the NFL we’ll have to let public education, eradication of traditional marriage and Rap culture work its magic on dumbing down and de- privileging the kids

The SJWs can go pound sand: they are the flotsam of a vile and polluted ideology.

Rampant? Systematic? Pervasive?

I thought the courts were where justice was sought. Everyone is sue happy, so if your rights to equal housing or filling a job are violated, why aren’t they being litigated? Are the courts stacked too? Is this some huge conspiracy to keep it all quiet.

Police interact on the front lines and fringes of society and we can go days or weeks without an incident BUT WHEN the media can triumphantly hold up the torch and shine it’s wondrous light on the inequity of police treatment for certain minorities, they will jump all over it. Are you suggesting that the media is in-fact doing the opposite and concealing all ways that white’s stranglehold on power and affluence is keeping only certain minorities down?

Houschka, stop talking generic conspiracy. Enlighten people. Show the way. Show the people the systematic injusticies.

We have been “acting” since the 60s,even electing a black president.

These activists DO NOT want to be treated
equally,they want to be treated better than the rest of us.

Yes...I just saw the half empty stadiums in Los Angeles and San Francisco.

Attendance announced as “sold out”...based on ticket sales. However, the stadiums are empty based on people not showing up...who wants to be lectured.

Get real.

I know the stupidity is in college too. But I think there’s a great opportunity for the SEC and other conferences to start a pro league (some SEC teams must be there any others are optional).
Get rid of the NCAA rules.
Have a minor league playing on Saturday but requires players to get an education (very like today’s college football except require graduation and eliminate other stupid “student” rules - they are pros who also go to school, not students who also play a game).
A major league that plays on Sunday, and instead of a draft, players are on the team the GRADUATED school from for 2 years.

Maybe that’s stupid. Maybe a start but needs a lot of changes. Maybe the XFL should come back. In any case, there’s a big opportunity.

And there’s so much money that you only need part of the NFL profits to be a success and so many media distribution options that the startup expenses are not huge, and the big networks with NFL contracts can’t easily shut it down. And, lets face it, there are 30+ teams associated with colleges that are professional in every way except paying the players. They are the perfect group to take advantage of the opportunity the NFL has provided.

I have no problem with a merit based society. No one is prohibiting you from competing for those spots.

Further, I would suggest that everyday people take the opportunity to start lecturing EVERY SINGLE Leftist Politician, entertainer, reporter and pro athlete you run across......And remember kiddos, you don’t have to be an expert to lecture someone, you just have to have a strong opinion.

Steven Hauschka is not a punter, he’s a place kicker. He’s also an idiot, it seems.

Get real.

Let's look at FACTS.

You mention Los Angeles...

REALLY???

32 teams in the league and you post LA as your proof.

In 2014, LA was #30 for attendance with 57,018 avg attendance.
Meanwhile Dallas was 90,069

In 2015, LA was #32, with 52,402 avg.
Dallas was 91,459

2016, LA was #31, with 57,024 avg.
Dallas was 92,539

Two teams, 2 extremes in attendance.
I doubt it has anything to do with product or market interest.

So while you're touting LA, one of the worst attended teams in the NFL, I'll post the entire NFL stats.

NFL Attendance
2010: 17.01 Million
2011: 17.12
2012: 17.18
2013: 17.30
2014: 17.36
2015: 17.26
2016: 17.79

Maybe we should demand that the NFL more closely “represents America” — 80+ percent lily-white.

Well there is no attendance for LA Charger games. 22,000 filed into a soccer stadium to yawn at the Chargers last Sunday. Fortunately they play er attend a game in KC this Sunday.
The LA Charger problem is so bad that the NFL is trying to get the money leeches, the Spanos’s, to move back to San Diego. We don’t want them back. Pollute LA. Thank you Spanos’s.

This will DEFINITELY turn the NFL ratings slide around.
