I am starting a discussion today on what might be the biggest social change that I have witnessed in my lifetime. The US, but indeed all modern societies, have in my opinion been totally brainwashed to fixate on what is basically little different than a few kids playing in their back yard. It is actually a hysteria similar in many aspects to Tulipmania or The Salem Witch Trials. The absurd nature of all three can only be recognized by the general population after it has passed.
I reckon this fixation began in the 60s and has been growing more intense ever since. Once sports was a pastime and for a modest sum you could take the kids out to a game and get them a soda and a hotdog. Practically everybody could afford to do so.
Then something changed. It was actually a fantastic mass brainwashing whereby all of a sudden people became convinced that they actually owned a part of the team and the teams success or failure had an impact on their lives.

Dwell on that for a moment. People here will spend a fortune on say painting their truck in the Patriots logo. In his mind that fellow has "skin in the game". He believes that he is in fact a shareholder of the company and he and Robert Kraft(owner) are partners. He is part of "Patriot Nation", he sees himself as part of a tribe. He will spend money and leave the family in need of food to actually be part of the tribe.

Now however there is a conflict. Being part of this tribe is in conflict with being part of the bigger more mental tribe that could be described as the USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA USA Tribe.


They are hit with a mental obstacle and there is no way about it as they are mutually exclusive. There is great anger. Many now have been forced out of what basically is a cult. They are like a woman scorned.

The result of this may well be the total demise of the sport tribe, should it continue. The amount of money needed to feed this tribe is absolutely mind boggling.

The Commissioner, Cowdell? is paid I heard 40 million a year for example. That needs a lot of suckers. Going to a Patriots game can cost $400 when all is added up. You wake up the next day with a hangover, an empty wallet, maybe frostbite and a nasty thing called a wife(soon to be an alimony payment)

so let's kick off the game and see how this plays out, it is more indepth of course but I don't want the post to last as long as these drawnout games.

I caught fleeting glances of news stories related to this and some Trump tweets and others moaning about said tweets but haven't really looked into it.

Can you give us a quick rundown of the chain of events and why Trump got involved, Dan?

It all sounds very interesting.

Bookies are big money, so major sports stars being connected to organized crime isn't outside the realms of possibility.

Besides Soros and nihilistic spoilt brats I suspect that the major force behind "Black Lives Matter" is organized crime.
Some believe that sports was deliberatly elevated in importance as a distraction to things that actually impact a person's life. Like war, education, health etc etc etc

Looks to me as another sign of the break up of the USA. If you have brown skin there's no reason you should give any loyalty to the US régime - or a Constitution written by slave owners and which has never been put to a democratic vote. I'm pretty sure there will never be a white US president again after the Dotard.

It is an offshoot of the blacklivesmatter protest. They are protesting the blacks getting shot by cops. These black players are as dense as boulders of course so it is easy to really sucker them. The only one that you can be sure of to have a brain on the football field is the QB, with a few exceptions the rest will be dragged through collage just to play ball. These fools could end up no longer earning big money if the golden goose actually wises up. Up to now of course, the goose was even more brainless than the players. He was not stupid, he was brainwashed so the brain has been completely switched off. However now the brain has received an unexpected outside shock and low and behold, it is functioning somewhat normally. On seeing these clowns now disrespecting The Flag is a great shock to the system.

They are not reacting very well to this shock, which of course I would expect because it is normal, and being normal is a new experience to these guys of a Sunday during football season

This is worldwide really.
Consider Ireland. For months we had people in Mayo in a complete trance about their superbowl. God alone knows how far into financial desperation some went to support their team. They actually believed it had a bearing on their life whatsoever. Hopefully none were so addled that they killed themselves after it as someone told me they lost with some lad choking a kick or something.

Observe the effects of the brainwashing as I assume it is like here.
Here you will see a family with kids and even the children will hall a Brady shirt or whoever. These cost about $125 here and it would not surprise me that the Mayo version would cost 20 euro.
The bigger problem is the kid from his earliest memory will be focused on something that means absolutely nothing. He will be totally lobotomized to anything at all that is actually important.

Is this not a form of child abuse

Then something changed. ...
Televison changed it, its similar to the radio. Families used to sing and play together and be a lot more music orientated, as it was a form of cheap entertainment.
But then everyone got a radio. So instead of listening to you brothers off key music, you could listen to "professionals", and all kinds of different types of music, and people, in general, lost the motivation/will to sing or play themselves and as a family.

Same thing happened with television. Why watch the local amateur squad when you can watch the best of the best, competing for bigger and bigger prize pools. All of which is fueled by you as you are the one who is funding it, buying all there crap.

The jersey itself is the primary piece that needs purchasing, the uniform. Which is why burning it is a big statement.

....
Now however there is a conflict. ....
When you say tribe in general your talking about your ethnic group or national identity, i think everything else is just piggy backing on top that.
The jersey being used in a way like a flag. National anthem played at the games. The sport is not in conflict with the primary US identity, or should not be if they want to attract people.
But if it is somehow at odds with their identity, then you will see what your are seeing now, conflict.

What I would be asking is why are these NFL teams allowing it ?

Men in general can be content with their thing, whatever it is. They have a routine, sports night and a few bears watching the games.
The system/government loves this. Man drives to work, drives home to suburbia, turns on the tv, watchs the game. Repeats. But you fuck with their routine you will get a reaction.
So why mess with it ? These nfl owners are not stupid, they know this will cost money.

This looks like divide and conquer to me. Some tribe somewhere is pushing buttons to get the other tribes attacking each other.
I think its the same as the blm scum or identity politics, all pushing a divide and conquer agenda.

No, TV has not the change, we had TV in the 40s.
What changed was the fact that players were paid huge money before the gates got large. thereby creating THE STORY. Then people rushed to see the story and then the gates could be increased. It was extremely clever psychology, in essence putting the cart before the horse.

Jason Whitlock, who's a top quality sports journalist in America imo, offered another angle to this in an interview I saw with him a few months back, and it's probably a more telling one, because I really do see it as one big leftist folly. It's also quite a sad angle too in ways.

According to him, Kaepernick, who kicked it all off, never bonded with any of his black teammates because he wasn't seen as properly black by them- he was raised by a white family who adopted him after his black father left his mother, and she put him up for adoption.

He thinks it was initially driven by some deep rooted issue in Kaepernick to prove his blackness, and he immediately got huge black cred for it, and obviously teased out his hair into a giant Afro at the time too. Whitlock is obviously black so could get away with saying all this stuff, and he's not prone to talking shite either, so it all seemed very reasonable.

I find it kind of funny that all this could quite possibly have been created out of some poor kid's insecurities about himself.

Sorry but tv only kicked off in in a meaningful way in the 50/60's in america. Im not disputing what your saying, it has merit.

if this is to be believed, i was looking for ownership per decade, television in the 1950's and transformation of american entertainment - Home

Television Comes to America, 1947-57
"The number of homes with TVs increased from 0.4 percent in 1948 to 55.7 percent in 1954 and to 83.2 percent four years later."
