    Football

    Yes, I am angered by the millionaire thugs disrespecting my country but I still like football.
    I will say, I don't watch on TV so I deny the cuck-suckers eye's and money.

    I've been a decade and a half without television. Same with sports, though I did watch some of the NHL playoffs last season.
    The price 20 years ago for parking and tickets, let alone concessions ruined sports for me. Last year, we had the whole kneeling during the National Anthem Marxist-fest, now I am reading there will be male cheerleaders this year? I am glad that you are still able to watch though Grue. I cannot imagine what the upcoming NFL season is going to be like.

    Thought I would miss the Packers/Saints games, but as the manure piled up around the NFL it quickly became easy just to ignore them all together.
    Rogers and Patrick what a crap load. The man is going to have to learn the hard way.

    Re: Football

    Cheerleading used to be a male thing, IIRC. A dude down the front, getting the fans coordinated to do the the team battle-cry, the fight chant. Leading the cheer.

    The women turned it into a sexy sex thing (which they always do - it's all they have). Skimpy outfits and high kicks. The sad irony being that when them men come back in, they'll be doing the chick thing: a circus gymnastics display. With pom-poms.

    Sports-ball spectating...

    Investing with one's own personal time, energy, emotion, money, ego, and self worth into a game played by men running about with a ball...

    Pass.

    I see so many vehicles with huge stickers on them of their favorite team's logo. Why is it important to let strangers know what team you like? Or is this some type of virtue signaling for other members of your clique?

    It's about being a part of something 'successful'. I always had to laugh when I would hear people describe a game they had watched.

    Invariable, you will hear the following from many:

    "WE WON!" - as if the person had any relevance to the success or failure of the game which had been played.
    "I can't believe THEY lost!" - whereas the person above takes ownership of success, yet distances themselves from the failure.

    But even "We lost!", does not excuse the behavior really. The person still had no relevance to the success or failure of the team playing.

    If people didn't invest themselves and their time, and money, and feelings, into these manufactured sports distraction teams,

    Definition of Sport
    sported; sporting; sports intransitive verb

    1 a : to amuse oneself

    b : to engage in a sport

    2 a : to mock or ridicule something

    Leisure time activity to engage the masses and distract them. If so many are not distracted by sports, they'll be distracted by other things instead.

    In the end, these teams give no care toward the fans. It is about money. Always was. No matter how many Gumbles or Costas try to put some sentimental spin on it all, its about money.

    If the people are not distracted by bread and circuses (sports), the powers that be are going to get upset because more people might start paying attention to them.

    No use wondering why, it's what they do. Guess it makes them feel better. I'm not an exploited loser, I'm a whatever fan. Same for stick figures or baby on board signs.

    I suppose there's better things you could be doing than going nuts over some sport or team. But it don't hurt much either.

    Re: Football

    I don't pay attention to bullshit. There are guys I know that are obsessed with football but I think it's boring. Spending 4 hours just to watch maybe a half hour of actual playing time is nuts. Don't even get me started on those Patriots!

    The only stick figure signs that I have liked are the ones that show the stick figure family being chased by a chainsaw wielding stick figure "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" style.

    Check. Gymnastics, stunts and crowd leadership were the perveiw of male cheerleaders for almost 80 years. Eisenhower, FDR and Reagan were all cheerleaders and during this time it was considered a sport.

    As with most things in the U.S., the role for women as cheerleaders opened up during World War I. The men were unavailable to continue filling the role as they were off fighting in the war. While the mid-war discussion continued, the deployments necessitated by WWII ended the issue permanently.

    With the change of gender, there was a resultant change in how cheerleaders were viewed. No longer as valiant talented athletes but as a supportive role for the male athletes as they performed the dirty work on the field. Injuries were common on the field, but less so on the sidelines.





    Cheerleading is now an entertainment venue closely tied to the marketing campaigns of college and professional sports organizations. Who has not taken a second look at the University of Southern California




    or Dallas Cowboys cheer teams?




    Neither are the main reason that people go to the games, but then again, a successful marketing campaign is never limited to only one method to attract consumers.

    Re: Football

    I like the skill and determination the teams show, but the NFL is crooked as a dogs hind leg. Any sport that gets big is. Least any I know about. It's ironic that the TV industry who shows us these faraway sports, can't keep from "improving" them. They try to sweep their sins under the rug, but it only goes so far.

    Racing maybe a little better than football, but not enough to think their much better. Some drivers and teams always seem to be a little more equal than others.

    Re: Football

    I've been a fan of true football (not hand egg) for about 27 years now. Supporting FC Twente ever since I was 7 years old. Twente relegated to the second division last season, and that division's first kick off is in 5 days (Friday). Everyone laughed their asses off when Twente relegated, as it's the 4th overall club in the Eredivisie, but due to piss-poor management, lying, cheating and buying the absolute WORST players we gotta look up now, for atleast one season. Ah well. Interesting times lie ahead.

    Forza Twente!

    Re: Football

    Iím a long term Rams fan so Iím not vetted to any city, division or player.

    Los Angeleno, Anaheim, St Louis, Los Angelos again .... players are drafted and then traded to other teams for their all star moments.

    Rather watch bocce ball, curling or some other sport where the rules are unknown and my interest self capped.

    Make your gabillions of dollars, just not off me.
