    I sure hope the proverbial "they" who killed the NFL and is on path to kill all sports...aren't expecting me to shed a tear at any of the funerals.

Why don't we have special programs to help boys with communications and Language arts like we have to help girls with STEM. ? Kangaroo college courts ruining young men without evidence and sometimes leading to suicide.

    Will our society be anti racism and genderism? Or will it just pick a target like Hitler did? Are we falling into a a pervasive anti-male and possibly anti- white message? Or is this just the pendulum going a bit too far for a little while?
    Less men going to college should be a very big deal.
    Women have taken over the world so to speak and so men are no longer needed in this modern world. When science figures out how to clone sperm in the laboratory men will be gone and a women only world will exist. Why do you think men are trying to convert to being a woman they see the hand writing on the wall.

    Yep, also it went gangster preacher. There was a time I was happy for ghetto dribblers to get a free education. Now I could careless. Since Jim Brown there hasn’t been an educated black to come from the sports business. Now it is blm race hucksters that forgot to get educated in anything worthwhile.

    Professional sports in America are over. Sports was entertainment, and a distraction from the problems of the day. It was also a way to bond the country together.

    Now sports is all politics from the players to the ads to the managers to the uniforms to the protestors. Its not an escape, its just another means of cramming political propaganda down peoples throats.

    And sports was deliberately destroyed because it was a means of national bonding, and football and baseball were "American" sports. The socialists have to destroy all national identity and anything that brings people togethor.

    Women would have to learn how to do the tough physical jobs that men do ( Don't get me wrong they certainly do physical jobs to for example health aides and waitressing) but trucking, mechanics, the profession of heavy shit moving, building stuff, fire fighting, repairing , sanitation workers are dominated by men and they are first level necessary jobs.
    Not to mention the testosterone required to run an army

    Here comes the fun "The NFL and Player's Association" gareed that the salary cap will go no lower thn 175.0 million" a drop of over 23 million. However estimates are more like 180 or a bit higher. Still a decrease. That put KC paying about 25% of the cap to one player

    But it also looks from the "agreed that the cap will go no lower than" that the NFL was prepared to do a partial bailout. The cap fluctuates usually up baes upon revenue.

    Salary cap could be in the range of $180 million - ProFootballTalk.

    Reading that makes me think I should invest in Dildo manufacturing. (Who knows...maybe we can use the same plastics for some fake titties!)
