    The Trump Effect. Did Anyone See This Coming?: New Poll Finds NFL Favorability Rating Sliced in Half in one week.

      It couldn’t happen to a “finer” league.

      The players are perhaps beginning to figure this out. It’s going to take more than a week or two to bring fans back.

      There a lot of disgust about a lot of unresolved issues that the NFL simply won’t tackle.

    • ck says:

      Think it’s about time and hope it continues until they are all FIRED! Need a new league anyway…one for the anti and one for the pro USA! Bet we know which one will lead and the one that will end in FAILURE! Thank God the fans finally awakened and did the right thing to send a message that won’t soon forget, hopefully! Thanks, David and Danny, agree w/u both.

  2. Danny says:

    Cam Newton raises his fist after he scores a touchdown. Marshawn Lynch hides behind a number of staff during the National Anthem. Accusations of the entire Raiders offense line failing to block for Derek Carr, who has stood for the Anthem each week.

    Just another day in the NFL.

    I’m so happy that Tim isn’t in the middle of that cesspool.

    • Danny says:

      Marshawn Lynch was sitting down at the bench during the Anthem and a number of staff were surrounding him to conceal what he was doing.

      Apologies for not making that clear.

    • brandi says:

      Tim committed the colossal sin of being more popular than the NFL. What has happened to the league with these Player Protests is why he was treated the way he was by NFL GMs. The league is going crazy trying to figure out what to do now because the worst thing, in their minds, that can possibly happen has.

      The Fans have found that Will of Their Own.

      The NFL thought it would be cute and dance around the Protest issue last Season because it played to a strategy they first brought out in the Beyonce Super Bowl Halftime Show. Forbes SportsMoney pointed out the Strategy, saying the NFL was so determined to appeal to Millennial Males it didn’t care if it drove away average Fans.

      But now it knows what happens when you drive away average Fans and it doesn’t know what to do because even though the league might not care if it drives Fans away, the Sponsors, Advertisers and TV Networks do.

      Welcome to the Majors, Roger Goodell and NFL Owners. This is what Sports is like when everything isn’t just handed to you on a platter and you have to actually earn it with the Fans.

    • ck says:

      Danny, you are so right about that regarding Tebow and what a “cesspool” it has become!:/

    • David says:

      The player’s association seems to be a big part of the problem. I often wondered why the union didn’t stand up and say something when Tebow was blackballed. He was obviously a better QB than the ones playing. In the video, they discuss the cultural Marxism that has taken over the NFL.
      https://www.infowars.com/nfl-players-union-teamed-up-with-soros-to-fund-leftist-advocacy-groups/

      • David says:

        The original article at Washington Times.
        “Clearly, ‘social activism’ by NFL players includes aligning with George Soros and other liberal organizations like Planned Parenthood in support of the left’s agenda,” said 2ndVote, a conservative watchdog group.
        Tim Tebow was disrupting their agenda. While he played, he was the face of the NFL.
        http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2017/oct/5/nfl-players-union-teamed-george-soros-fund-leftist/

      • Danny says:

        When I saw this it really dovetailed into the treatment that Tebow received in the NFL. There was absolutely no rational reason why Tim wasn’t playing somewhere.

        Knowing this now, there was absolutely no chance that Tim would ever set foot on a NFL field again. The “Agenda” wouldn’t allow it.

        Most NFL fans were asleep while this was building up.

        Now the masses have awakened and its been a downhill slide ever since.

        But you know, it’s like a train wreck, you know it’s going to happen but you just can’t look away.

  3. ck says:

    What an unimaginable occurrence in the news! Lots of heroes that is for sure!

    • Danny says:

      Such a tragedy, and so much we don’t know about what really happened.

    • David says:

      There is an independent journalist on twitter that is breaking a lot of info given to her by Mandalay Bay hotel employees about Paddock, one of the shooters. So far, I count 4 shooters, 1 in another hotel, 2 in Mandalay Bay on the 32nd and 4th floors, and another on the ground behind the stage. At least 3 had automatic weapons. She has exposed that Paddock checked into the hotel on the 25th, not the 28th as the police said.
      https://twitter.com/LauraLoomer
      She also reported this,

      .@MGMResortsIntl CEO James Murren sold 294,150 shares of (NYSE:MGM) stock in a transaction on Friday, September 8th.

      That’s over 10 million dollars worth and about 85% of his personal holdings in MGM. What did he know? Infowars is reporting on Laura Loomers findings.
      A former Trump campaign official is saying that Paddock made an ISIS tape and that law enforcement is hiding it from the public according to Infowars

      • Sage says:

        Murren is a lefty sponsor.

        It’s likely to be organized “antifa.” Those people are ready for war. Or so they think. They’re the kind of people who need to sucker punch.

        • David says:

          Yes, and he was matching donations by his employees to CAIR, which has been caught aiding Isalamic terrorrism.
          To add more confusion to the situation, this video claims the shooter Paddock was seen alive last night in a casino in NJ. False Flag?
          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1P8aCCYuXgE

          • Sage says:

            Authorities seem to love the “one dead shooter” theory.

            In Orlando, the girlfriend who drove the shooter to the nightclub was allowed to leave town, and the FBI even lost track of her. Pretty much the same with Vegas.

            Cops work harder to find accomplices in your basic gas station robbery.

  4. brandi says:

    Well Folks, it’s official. The NFL is now America’s LEAST favorite Sports League. But that’s not even the story. The NFL went from First to Worst faster than any Major Sports Organization in History.

  5. Sage says:

    Trubisky is likely a good athlete and QB, but I’m betting he isn’t good enough to cover up for John Fox’s inadequacy, as Tebow was.

    Take away Tebow and Manning, and Fox’s record in the last 7 or 8 years has got to be pretty weak.

    Gase showing himself to be a genius, Not. McCoy offense in Denver starting to sputter.

  6. Sage says:

    Trubisky time was a buck short.

        Yea, and now we “Know the rest of the story” as Paul Harvey would say! Just got back…had a great time in the mountains!;D
        A lot of people are posting that it is “too little too late”…agreed. Now, read where Elrot wants football to not be so political…LA! And the fans had the means all along, but great that President Trump is on board along w/Pence who walked out of the Colt’s game due to disrespecting the flag by players taking a knee—FINALLY, THE MESSAGE IS GETTING THROUGH BY THE MAJORITY WHO PAY THE BILLS!!! TEBOW IS VINDICATED IMO–THANK GOD!!!

        • Danny says:

          You are so right ck.

          Elway and all the other willing accomplices in NFL ownership and the league itself allowed all this to happen and now the genie is out of the bottle and it’s out of control.

          The professional game is getting destroyed in front of their eyes.

          And who’s to blame? Elway has certainly earned his share.

    • ck says:

      That pretty much sums it up and thanks, David, for the link! Tebow vs Anti-American “RACIST” Thugs who are overpaid w/o the necessary character and then disrespecting the very fans that pay for this game to actually happen–HOPE THEY LEARN A NEVER TO BE FORGOTTEN LESSON ALL THE WAY BACK TO THEIR TAXPAYER SUPPORTED, YET AGAIN, PROJECTS/HUD HOUSING, ETC.!!!

  8. Danny says:

    Brandi:

    Enjoyed your blog about Disney and RBC Capital about their assessment of ESPN.

    Another take on this is that there are many institutions that are holding Disney that want out because of the ESPN baggage. Selling their massive holdings now can drive the stock down.

    A common practice over the years is to get a friendly analyst to do a positive writeup to attempt to push the stock higher as the institutions sell into the strength. Then when they get out the individual investors who bought into the story got left holding the bag when the institutions sold their stock.

    Then when the stock is driven down to its lows, the institutions start quietly buying and then all at once issue a strong buy rating.

    Goldman Sachs has been notorious over the years for pushing this very thing.

    As the old adage goes, follow the money….

    • brandi says:

      Thank You Danny. That’s very kind of you, Sir. 🙂

      I’ve been pretty heavy in the Investor Forums the last couple years and it would scare, anger, frustrate alot of People to realize just how little the folks “investing” their Retirement money actually know about these Companies.

      Like you said, they play their money games. But when it comes to doing the really hard work of, oh Investment Analysts actually analyzing these Industries and Companies? Well, that would be way too much like working for a living.

    • brandi says:

      Well, as I said in that article, the way the Analysts friendly to Disney were acting, it usually meant bad news coming soon. And here it is, as Disney will be laying off another 200 people from its TV Networks.

    • Danny says:

      Figures, not too surprising.

      Recently, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) filed civil fraud charges against 27 different companies and individuals. The reason? These folks posted news articles featuring “stock-promotion schemes.”

      Essentially, these third-party writers received money from companies and then wrote articles promoting their stocks. The features ran on popular sites like Seeking Alpha and Wall Street Cheat Sheet.

      It illustrates what a company will do to promote its stock. Also, the stock message boards are full of pumpers and dumpers.

      So like you said, all the analyst happy talk to pump up the price was just to allow some institutional selling before the bad news came out.

      The fundamental side of Disney is bleak considering that they are carrying ESPN and all the negative goodwill on their books.

      Disney may now be regretting the day they signed their name as owners of ESPN.

      • David says:

        Fake financial news certainly is fraud just like when the MSM issues false polls on election day or ignores the fact that the stock market has gone up 25% in value since Trump became president. Trump is thinking about what they are doing and suggesting solutions.
        The players in the NFL are saying that they will hold take-a-knee demonstrations before the game, so the NFL’s problems will become a hot button political issue in the 2018 elections. Politicians may be forced to remove all government assistance from football or risk the wrath of the voters. This won’t be good for the stocks involved.

        President Trump is defining the issues for 2018 and painting his opponents into a corner by using their propaganda tools against them. Who would have believed that he could use the NFL to bludgeon his opponents politically?

          All told, God works in mysterious ways and “confounds the wise” (so called, anyway; i.e., demos who think they should tell everyone how to live and just look at Harvey Weinstein mess!!!).

  9. David says:

    A 2013 article about “‘How the NFL Fleeces Taxpayers” offers a very good solution.
    https://www.theatlantic.com/magazine/archive/2013/10/how-the-nfl-fleeces-taxpayers/309448/
    “The NFL’s nonprofit status should be revoked. And lawmakers—ideally in Congress, to level the national playing field, as it were—should require that television images created in publicly funded sports facilities cannot be privatized. The devil would be in the details of any such action. But Congress regulates health care, airspace, and other far-more-complex aspects of contemporary life; it can crack the whip on the NFL.

    If football images created in places funded by taxpayers became public domain, the league would respond by paying the true cost of future stadiums—while negotiating to repay construction subsidies already received. To do otherwise would mean the loss of billions in television-rights fees. Pro football would remain just as exciting and popular, but would no longer take advantage of average people.”

  10. TheMascotArmy says:

    I just watched 20 seconds of Tebow live on Facebook. That was kindof cool.

  11. Sage says:

    Anyone see Tebow’s Nissan / Halloween commercial? I hate it.

    Tim knows more about getting on in this world than I do, but I disapprove of him playing sweet with those who scorn him.

    The following link is not the Nissan commercial. Rathet, it’s an essay about modern anti-white male discrimination. The Nissan commercial seems like a choice specimen.

    http://thedeclination.com/pop-culture-commercials-and-white-guys/

    • Danny says:

      Are you talking about the Nissan Heisman House commercial?

      If so, I would agree with you.

      I just don’t like the optics that the commercial presented. I could think of 100 different ways that commercial could have ended in a positive note.

      Tim is pretty media savvy, I’m a little surprised he would allow this.

      I know in the case of Rush Limbaugh, he will not do taped media interviews unless he gets to preview the segment that will air. Its in a contract that he signs with the media company. Too much stuff can get edited making the person interviewed look bad.

      Case in point, Katie Couric got into a lot of hot water when she taped an interview with an NRA official. She purposely looped a bunch of pause time after she asked a question, making it look like the person she asked the question to was speechless. In reality he answered the question right away. He ended up taking Couric to court over it over misrepresentation.

    • ck says:

      Well, I thought it was kinda positive, but now I am having second thoughts since reading the link. Have grandsons and don’t approve of how the media sets them up to think less than so, have to agree on this one too, Sage. Not only that, but have been thinking for some time that the PC’s are on a mission to subjugate our values that elevated this country to a higher level instead of the low level they are promoting…DON’T BELIEVE IT WILL HAPPEN IN THIS LIFETIME THANK GOD B/C THE MAJORITY WILL NO LONGER SETTLE FOR BEING SILENT!!! TRUMP/PENCE–USA!

      • Sage says:

        Things will be alright. It’s not white males I’m worried about, but rather people being taught to nurture grievances and to have misguided views.

        Ha. I’ve certainly nurtured a grievance against the nfl over Tebow, but that’s different. 😉

        • ck says:

          True. Tebow is on a higher level than the NFL and they could use a lesson in humility, etc. Now the NFL (Roger G.) is caving again to the miscreants instead of the fans who are on the side of what is right…can’t be helping their bottom line–go figure?!

  12. Sage says:

    Back to some Tebow happy talk!

    Ken Griffey Jr. heaps praise on Tim Tebow

    https://247sports.com/Bolt/Ken-Griffey-Jr-heaps-praise-on-Tim-Tebow-Florida-Gators-108801125

    “The baseball Hall of Famer segued into the Tebow talk by talking about what it takes to build a winning team, saying that he’d rather have 15 Tim Tebows than 15 great players that can’t play together…..”

  14. ck says:

    On another note, read someone quote something that fits: “There are none so blind as those who refuse to see.”
    Read that Goodell is getting a massive amount of money for whatever he does–$53,000,000.00 (not hard to believe…HMMMM); plus, he’s sponsoring a “Social Justice Bootcamp” in February so they can get their message across better…apparently, they didn’t get the memo and WHAT A JOKE! Someone stated it is time for them to form the BFL and see who will come to their games w/all the above going on–can only imagine how long that would last w/o subsidies!

    • brandi says:

      The NFL’s strategy for a continued stream of Players is poor, mostly minority, families who are desperate for any way out. Even a Scholarship to play a Sports, families with middle incomes and above overwhelmingly now say they won’t let their Kids play.

      On the other thing, the Players had a legitimate issue. Nobody should live in fear of getting shot for reaching for a cellphone or their ID. Police Forces are now equipped with Military Equipment and many think like they’re in war zones. There’s NOTHING America about any of that.

      BUT, beginning with Colin Kaepernick’s not having prepared a good, smart, effective statement for that 1st time he was sitting on the bench as to why, and instead ranting about how much he hates America, no Supporters or Defenders of these protests has taken any of this as seriously as the issue they claim to want addressed. The Kaep dons his pig socks, displaying yet again he’s not nearly as serious about his “cause” as he is just whining.

      But all of this was simply the lead-up to the Post-Election shift to making it all about Trump. Everyone from the Players to the Media who unconditionally supported them dumped their cause in two seconds flat in exchange for complaining about Donald Trump and his Supporters. Next the protests continued to be hijacked. this time by anyone with any axe to grind who would say “We Love You NFL Players”.

      Now they’re all saying their “message” has gotten lost. No it hasn’t. They threw it away so quickly, easily and decisively, they showed they have neither a cause they actually care deeply about. Nor a message for that cause.

      These are not serious people seriously dragging the Country into further division for no good reason who yet expect to be taken seriously. They irreparably damaged their cause and any hope of it ever being addressed the instant they showed how trivial, petty and easily distracted they are.

      • David says:

        Now Kaepernick is filing a lawsuit against the NFL for collusion. The only problem with that lawsuit is that he asked to be released from his contract with the 49ers so he could become a free agent. He wasn’t denied a job, he quit.

        • ck says:

          Think he is seeing the handwriting on the wall and is so desperate that he has to sue which is a form of intimidation that they are adept at using; i.e., Al Sharpton, etc. Well, David, it is getting to be “theatre of the absurd” imo too!

      • ck says:

        After reading that, you know there is something more serious than just taking a knee for a nonexistent “manufactured” fake cause…looks like Soros is adding more funds (to the tune of $18 “B” as in BILLIONS) to the foundation that supports all this anarchy against this country!!!

        Anyway, Danny, this guy wrote in the comment section and I quote: “The NFL is sinking faster than Teddy Kennedy’s Oldsmobile”-T. Hughes.

        Just maybe, the “PATRIOTS” in this country need to take action by calling about having “MAJOR” concerns relayed to elected reps. about the taxes going to an NFL def. being used as a “conduit” for so-called “progressive wingnuts” attempting to impose their radical “minority” agenda w/false narratives onto what happens to be no longer a complacent “MAJORITY”–NOT HAPPENING!!!;(

    Just when it seems the NFL couldn’t possibly be any more arrogant, Shad Khan goes & says the reason Trump’s going after them is cause he’s jealous that he’s not an NFL Owner.

    • ck says:

      What a NUT! They should just sell that team as they are about as talented as the DOLPHINS…Thanks for the info., Brandi.

  16. Bubbaelvis says:

    Shad Khan knows Trump isn’t jealous that he isn’t an NFL owner. He knows Trump would have been smart enough to build a team around Tim Tebow if he was an owner. I seem to recall that at one time President Trump was looking at buying a team (I want to say the Bills). If I remember right he stated that he would like to have Tebow as his QB and had high praise for Tim. I haven’t researched this so I may be wrong but either way President Trump would have been so much smarter and more successful then Khan.
    Has anyone seen or heard anything about Tim working out for next baseball season. I have the feeling his growth will be tremendous. He will look like a different player and surprise everyone with how far he has come.

    • Sage says:

      Back in the ’80s I enjoyed summer football with the USFL, and was a fan of the Denver Gold. Nothing wrong with football in the summer. It was a good idea, and a great way to discover talent.

      It’s quite true that the nfl is a trust and anti-competitive. A lot of players with good talent never get discovered and never get to prove themselves. That’s a minor tragedy. Tebow’s is just one such story.

      While I’m a Trump supporter and believe he would be smart enough to back Tim Tebow, there is no denying Trump destroyed the USFL. He owned the New Jersey Generals and went all-in to get Herschel Walker. Whereas the USFL had been built on a consensus not to over-spend in an effort to compete with the nfl, that’s exactly what Trump did. The USFL buckled pretty quickly.

    • ck says:

      Agreed Bubbaelvis and well said.

    • ck says:

      Know that he is on every Saturday w/SEC Nation from 10-12…Here’s looking at the Majors!

  17. Sage says:

    https://twitter.com/69WithTheAfrow

    His page is gone, which I regret. I had wanted to capture all of his Tebow tweets, many of which were cogent and featured interesting stats. I got some, but in totality they would have made the content for an e-book.

    Does anyone know who he is? It appears he was a PAC 10 QB, perhaps a backup, in the early or mid-’90s.

    • Sage says:

      And it’s back.

      I’d better gather the stuff while I can.

      • ck says:

        Glad you found it, Sage, and like your idea for an E-Book. Plus, didn’t know that about the USFL…maybe they could make a go of it now since the NFL is on its way out! Wouldn’t that be a novel idea!;D

      • Danny says:

        ck: I read something last year that some people were attempting to reboot the USFL. Thanks for reminding me about it:

        http://theusfl.com/about.html

        I’m pretty sure they wouldn’t be able to use the name USFL (copyright infringement) if some of the principals weren’t involved in some way.

        Anyway, there are some names like Paul Warfield that are involved in this endeavor.

        The name itself is a valuable brand. It would be interesting to see where this goes.

        • brandi says:

          It’s an effort that has been underway for many years. You’re right about the naming rights. There’s been all sorts of fights over them. The Team Names and League Name ended up in different hands. Half the problems getting res-tarted have been over infighting over naming rights. They also had a past CEO who embezzled a $Million from Investors.

          The whole thing has been a mess. They still have a few Fans who have hung up despite all the ups and downs. But they were trying to get Cities to make investments as Community Development Projects. All in all they’ve been saying for at least the last 5 or 6 years they’ll re-start when they have enough money together. (But I haven’t looked into their current status for a little while)
