NFL’s Hail Mary: Deal would dole out millions to Soros-linked social-justice groups

Plagued with sagging ratings, player protests and fan outrage, the NFL has thrown a political Hail Mary by reportedly agreeing to dole out millions to social-justice groups connected to Democratic billionaire George Soros.

Under an agreement with the Players Coalition, NFL owners plan to funnel tens of millions to the Dream Corps, a leftist advocacy group led by ex-Obama adviser Van Jones and linked to Mr. Soros, which has called for saving the Clean Power Plan, cutting the prison population by half, and providing “sanctuary for all.”

The $89 million, seven-year deal also carves out millions for the Players Coalition, according to ESPN, which has been advised by Soros-funded groups such as the Campaign for Fair Sentencing of Youth and the Center for American Progress, a leader of the anti-Trump resistance.

    These axxholes have way too much money. The boycott has obviously not been tightened enough.

    Because that’s what red-blooded NFL fans want — to support commie agitators, international banksters, gaia cultists and identity politics.

    The agreement distributes funding for both local and national efforts. On the national side, the owners agree to pay $73 million over seven years, with 25 percent earmarked for the United Negro College Fund and 25 percent to the Dream Corps.

    Am I the only one noticing the uninterrupted screeching to rename institutions, including sportsball teams, with even vaguely un-PC names while the “United Negro College Fund” skates?

    And really.. SOROS NEEDS MONEY? SOROS? What’s next.. little league donations to Goldman Sachs?

    This a group of people and players who hate Americans and unfortunately the only way to protest these idiots is to boycott the whole game.

    I would suggest that is the wrong move to bring the fans back.

    I can’t boycott the Patriots.

      If the Patriots’ management is going along with this, then they are part of the problem. Consider a boycott as “tough love”; as an “intervention”; a means of bringing a well-loved but wayward friend to see the light.

    If you really want to make them squeal you have to get to their advertisers.

    In other news, the biggest draw in the summer Olympics is little girls in unitards running and jumping – often into the arms of their middle aged male coaches. Let the No Fun League be what it wants to be.

  • Thinking From First Principles

    No intelligent customer wants to hear a business virtue signalling by giving away money that was paid by the customer (directly or indirectly through advertisers). Lower the price you are charging the customer and cut the baloney!

    The NFL still doesn’t get it. The sensitive social justice people are presumably not attracted to a gladiatorial sport.
