Between concussions, male cheerleaders, and political grandstanding, the NFL has no chance of existing 20 years from now.

Good riddance. The NFL just treats their players like circus freaks anyway—I don’t care how well they get paid. I personally know a few and a good chunk of them are brainwashed into believing they can’t use their new wealth and platform to speak out about racial injustice. I don’t want to sound preachy (too late?), but the majority of the players are Black and I’ll be damned if I ignore that and the fact that Kap has been mostly alone with the exception of a few vocal NFL-affiliated supporters. So fuck the NFL and fuck the NBA while we’re at it. I grew up looking up to the stars of both leagues, too, but my entertainment is way less important than eradicating the perpetuation systemic mistreatment if Blacks in this country. These sports leagues exploit the shit out of these folks and pacify them with a few million. Kiss my ass. I know this thread was a joke, but the overarching issues here are absolutely no joke.
