Trump Instigates NFL Labor Dispute
September 28, 2017
Yesterday, I predicted the NFL would suffer a season-shortening labor dispute this season or next. The reason: President Trump’s pressure on owners to crack down on anthem haters will stir up a fight between NFL Players Association and the owners. As if on cue: [caption id=“attachment_24766” align=“alignnone” width=“1285”]Fox News[/caption] President Trump, in an exclusive interview with “Fox & Friends,” said that NFL owners are “afraid” to act against their players protesting the national anthem at games across the country.
Jack Kemp Stood for Civil Rights . . . And America
September 26, 2017
Jack Kemp is on the top of my wall of heroes. Literally. An autographed Kemp card sits on top of my bookshelf housing the works and images of my heroes. As the NFL self-destructs, it’s worth reading about Jack Kemp’s work for civil rights. And for the Republican Party. And for conservatism. Jack Kemp’s Activism Kemp did it all.

Coming to a head. President Trump seems pathologically opposed to festering problems. When he sees a festering problem, he pops it like a zit.

September 23, 2017
You can see the battle brewing. It’s coming to a head. And no one is telling you the real reason the NFL is dying before your eyes. Everyone sees the symptoms of football’s death spiral: empty stadiums. Crashed ratings. low quality. Criminals on the field. Some people call it “the National Felony League.” Frustrated fans look for better entertainment. Ticket sales remain high for one reason: stupid corporate executives. Stupid executives think it’s still a status symbol to control lots of NFL tickets.
Stan Kroenke's Long Con Has Just Started
January 5, 2017
You thought Stan Kroenke wanted a team in Los Angeles? I don’t think so. I think Stan is playing a long con. And I think it’s a brilliant strategy. Los Angeles is a terrible market for football teams, but it’s a fantastic market for the NFL. It would be a perfect place to build a permanent home for the Super Bowl. Los Angeles has fantastic weather, great attractions, and a huge pool of football fans, fans of every team in the NFL.
