The Woke Is Strong in This One: Billsí Punter Claims Inequality Is Real, White People Need to See It
Breitbart ^ | September 22, 2017 | Dylan Gwinn

Posted on 09/22/2017 8:04:14 AM PDT by C19fan

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.

Attendence may be up, but the much-more-important TV RATINGS are far, far down.

It’s always the case with liberals. Their only solution is to drag everyone down to the same level. They can’t stand the concept of personal responsibility and allowing individuals to rise to whatever level they can achieve - it just can’t be FAIR!

Just like socialism/communism, make everyone EQUALLY miserable and you have equality. The only way to have higher standards is to accept that some will try harder, achieve more, and be rewarded for it. Liberals wish to take that opportunity away from everyone.

Your stats are interesting, except there was no NFL team in Los Angeles in 2015. According to ESPN, the Rams had the second highest attendance in the NFL for 2016 at 84,457 per game. Another source puts them in seventh place at 74,131 per game. Perhaps that's the difference between tickets sold and actual butts in the seats.

Where did you get your numbers that the Rams are the worst draw in the NFL?

Yes TV ratings are down.

16.5 million vs 17.9 in 2015

But the previous poster mentioned how he saw empty seats in LA, for attendance.
And that is what I addressed.

Also, ESPN which televises 17 games, their viewership dropped 12% (we know ESPN is hemorrhaging viewers)
NBC, televises 19 games, they dropped 10%

Meanwhile Fox and SeeBS both televise 27 games. They dropped 6% and 7%.

What nobody takes into account, is that online viewing is skyrocketing.

If you're so inclined to find out about non traditional tv viewership

We'd like to think that the NFL is struggling. That people aren't showing up or tuning in. But if we actually look at the big picture, and not our bias, we'll see that nothing is really changing.

“Behavioral inequality is the root cause of most other inequality.”

And IQ has a lot to do with how one behaves.

Wait until next year, when all the loyals who now regret buying 2017 tickets packages have told the NFL where to head in, and there is an UNSOLD TICKET for each and every empty seat. The real pain has not yet arrived, because many empty seats right now had a sold ticket anyhow. Those days will come to a screeching halt. Especially with the disgruntled agitators now doubling down on their idiocy.

And you didn’t notice anything odd about those stats?

First of all it shows two teams in Los Angeles, and none in San Diego. The Chargers were not in LA in 2016. It’s obvious that the worst draw in the league was San Diego, not LA. Second, it lists the Rams as having played one home game last year. You don’t find both those details a little strange?

It's going to take more than 1 year.

For all those seats that were already sold, there were others waiting to buy them.

The people who bought them this year might ditch them next year, but the others who've been waiting will scoop them up.

It's like those who lump the top 1% into all the same people. The 1% changes all the time. Some entering, some leaving.

While some "conservative" might not return next year, SOMEBODY "liberal" will gladly take their spot.

Puzzled. “Hauschka spoke with the Buffalo News about ways of advancing the cause of racial inequality....” If he’s against racial discrimination, why would he want to promote racial inequality?

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


Me either. As long as it’s done society wide. Why is it ok for the NFL etc to be merit based and not, for instance, Civil Service jobs?

Go to the bottom of the list every year that I mentioned.

The poster I responded to mentioned LA.

I looked at ESPNs list for 3 years, and near the bottom of the list for all 3 years, LA is listed.

The previous poster was trying to make a point about terrible attendance of LA. So I looked at the bottom of the list for 3 years. Why would I concern myself with who did what in the middle?

The point is, league wise attendance is rising. To focus on one team out of 32 to try and prove a point is ludicrous.

Right. I just hope the net effect is that the NFL and the linguini spine owners take a signigicant $$$$ hit. It would be very satisfying to see players given an ultimatum; shut up and play football, or get your sensitive @$$ outta here!

Now how is that virtue signaling working as a business strategy? Insulting half of your market?
