The NFL decided recently to move millions in donations to veterans groups and breast cancer reserach in order to fund social justice issues. Colin Kaepernick’s kneeling-for-the-anthem protest has had a lasting effect whether America likes it or not. Now, because of all the nonsense on the field (which has stretched into Week 14 of this season) ticket prices have plummeted. They’re almost free!
From Daily Wire:
It turns out, if you can still stomach a professional football game, you can now get tickets for about the same price as a couple of Starbucks lattes.
According to Vivid Seats, an NFL ticket reselling site, seat prices at most NFL stadiums have bottomed out, leaving fans able to snag a lower level seat for a Buffalo Bills game for an astounding three dollars. Tickets at center field, right on the fifty-yard line (typically hard to find), will run you around $30.
More on the NFL, per Breitbart:
The anthem protests begun by Colin Kaepernick last year, presented the NFL with a critical decision: Choose the side of the anthem protesters. Or choose the fans and customers of their game, who don’t want the sport polluted by politics.
As it turns out, not only did the NFL choose their protesting players over their fans, they George Soros over their fans.
The NFL recently agreed to spend nearly $90 million dollars over the next seven years, to various organizations connected with social justice causes. Several of those groups, have deep connections to billionaire liberal activist George Soros.
The NFL agreement with the players, which includes no requirement that the player protests end, will send cash to Soros-connected groups such as Dream Corps, Center for American Progress, and Campaign for Fair Sentencing.
According to the Washington Examiner, Dream Corps is “…a leftist advocacy group led by former 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 Examiner also reports, “The $89 million, seven-year deal also carves out millions of dollars 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.’”
When will team owners say enough is enough: our players will stand!?
How much money will they lose before then?
Oh, well. They’re asking for it by refusing to do what’s right.
