black friday nike sale Last sports bastion of white
cheap Cyber Monday nike shoes By almost any measure TV ratings, the value of franchises, overall revenue, polls the National Football League is by far both the most popular and successful professional sports league in America. A veritable juggernaut. Nothing seems to damage that popularity not widely reported homophobia or the growing awareness of the dangers of head injuries or the accusations leveled in a lawsuit filed last week by 500 former players that they were pumped up with painkillers and sent back onto the field after being injured.Why does the NFL have such a tenacious hold on the national consciousness particularly that of white males, the primary fans of professional sports? It might be that the NFL, in both its high points and its low ones, encapsulates the prevailing white male conservative ethos of modern America better than any other league. The triumph of the NFL is a tribute to the triumph of American conservatism.The popularity of a sport is, to a large extent, a function of how well it expresses the zeitgeist at least the male zeitgeist. For more than a century, baseball was America's national pastime. It was pastoral born in the 19th century, played on expansive greenswards, with a leisurely pace and a deliberate strategy. All of which was a large part of its appeal in a rapidly modernizing society that surrendered those rural values grudgingly.Basketball was born in Springfield, Massachusetts in 1891 but the professional National Basketball Association arose in the postwar era as an urban game fluid, loose and improvisational like jazz, not to mention now predominantly black.Both baseball and basketball centralize the individual: baseball with the pitcher and batter squaring off mano a mano; basketball with the soloist departing from the ensemble to shoot or dunk. As a result, Major League Baseball and the National Basketball Association are both star leagues in which the players sometimes are as big as the game itself.Football is another thing entirely. It is America's corporate sport, rising in our industrial heartland. The basis of football is its machinery 11 individuals subjugating themselves to the greater good of the team. They are effectively cogs, and with their heads encased in helmets, they are faceless in a way that baseball players and basketball players are not. In the case of the linemen, they are not only faceless; they are pretty much nameless as well.There is a reason that the NFL began taking hold in the 1950s a period of conformity embodied by the term "organization man." Football players are the ultimate organization men, and their sport is the sport of the corporate age.Still, in a nation as mythically individualistic as ours likes to think it is, it took a while for football to wrest the "national pastime" mantle from baseball. That it finally succeeded is a testament to how much the United States changed in the last half of the 20th century and how much the NFL played into those changes.It isn't a coincidence that the rise of the National Football League mirrored the rise of American conservatism. In almost every way, the NFL was the league of the well off, conservative white male.A recent Experian Simmons study . Of people who identified themselves as part of the NFL fan base 83 percent were white, 64 percent were male, 51 percent were 45 years or older, only 32 percent made less than $60,000 a year, and, to finish the point, registered Republicans were 21 percent more likely to be NFL fans than registered Democrats. Another factoid: NFL fans were 59 percent more likely than the average American to have played golf in the last year. You think the NFL is a lunch bucket league? Not unless the lunch bucket is from Hermes.But football's appeal is more than demographics. The numbers reflect the values of white conservative males. No professional sport looks more overtly macho than the NFL, and none appears to take greater delight in violence not even the National Hockey League, which has gone to great lengths to curb fisticuffs. The Michael Sam draft story revealed that none may be more homophobic. Where the National Basketball Association enthusiastically embraced Jason Collins when he announced he was gay, former Vikings punter Chris Kluwe has claimed that that he was released for advocating gay marriage and that his position coach made homophobic slurs. Then are the numerous player tweets against gays, as well as Miami Dolphin lineman and team captain Richie Incognito's gay taunts against former teammate Jonathan Martin.But the league's appeal to entrenched conservative values goes deeper still to the heart of the relationship between labor and capital. No other professional league seems to exhibit the indifference, even contempt, to its own players that the NFL does to its athletes which is why the former players have filed their suit. The record of concussions and the use of painkillers demonstrate that to the NFL and many of its fans players are essentially expendable, interchangeable, to be used up and then discarded. The fact that football players have never established a powerful union, as baseball and basketball players have, only shows how much those players have drunk the league's Kool Aid. The career of the average NFL player lasts scarcely three years, yet it is the only professional league that doesn't have guaranteed contracts.Still, the game's soaring popularity may actually signal the potential waning of those values rather than their power. Just as baseball embedded itself into the national psyche because it captured a sense of the country and then hung on because it represented a pastoral oasis in a frightening new industrializing world, football embedded itself into the national psyche because it captured Ronald Reagan's America, and it may be thriving among its core fans because it is a last redoubt of white male values now being threatened by changing national demographics and a more tolerant mindset.It is hard to call a league as popular as the NFL an anachronism. But it just may be a place where rich old angry white men can enjoy their world on Sunday even if that world may be crumbling around them.PHOTO (TOP): New York Giants kicker Lawrence Tynes (C) kicks the opening kick off to start the first regular season game in the Giants new stadium against the Carolina Panthers in their NFL football game in East Rutherford, New Jersey, September 12, 2010.

The political breakdown is 41% Republican and 38% Democrat which is certainly within the margin of error. Posted by MikeyInHouston Report as abusiveI am not sure if Mr. Gabler has ever watched football, but his left wing rant shows a clear lack of understanding of why people watch football more than other sports.1) Football is actually the closest to socialism. Between revenue sharing, a collective television deal, the salary cap, and the NFL Draft, the league obsesses over competitive balance. On given Sunday, any team can win. Teams can go from worst to first and every year new teams make the playoffs. The gap between the haves and have nots is constantly being narrowed.Baseball is raw capitalism. Teams have their own regional television deals, and it is survival of the fittest. New York has a distinct advantage over Kansas City. A player on the Royals making one million can be paid $20 million by the Yankees. This is why the Yankees can win the World Series every year while small market clubs start the year knowing they have no chance. This causes many fans to tune out as the gap between haves and have nots widens.2) Football is only 16 games. Basketball and hockey are 82 games, baseball 162 games. To watch every game in the other sports means spending no time with family unless they watch as well. Football was only Sundays and Monday nights, with the addition of Thursday nights a source of controversy. Baseball is always. Many fans of baseball, hockey and basketball ignore the regular season and wait for the playoffs.3) Baseball is a turnstyle sport. It is meant to be enjoyed at the ballpark. On tv, it is incredibly boring to watch. Football is meant for tv. To stay home and watch tv is cheaper than going to a game, which helps blue collar families who can no longer afford the expensive price of tickets, parking, hot dogs and beverages.Gabler is as wrong as wrong can be. Since he is a leftist, he will just say his right, declare the matter settled, and move on to discussing the next topic he knows nothing about.Posted by blacktygrrrr Report as abusiveYour statement career of the average NFL player lasts scarcely three years, yet it is the only professional league that doesn't have guaranteed contracts seems out of place. Shouldn the point be more like the career of the average NFL player lasts scarcely 3 years, it is the only professional league that doesn have guaranteed contracts. Why would NFL teams want to pay players who are no longer able to contribute to active rosters? Of all the leagues, the NFL has by far the greatest motivation to avoid guaranteed contracts.Posted by HelenaEngineer Report as abusiveAs a old angry white man I don know many people who fancy crowding into any building with 100,000 other people, regardless of the sport. Today wealthy are increasingly seeking personalized experiences, exotic travel, and convenience; they don have time to follow the local sports team every week or fight big crowds. Personally I watch and participate in tennis, golf, skiing, Formula 1 (really only the Monte Carlo Grand Prix) and horses (the lattermost being a diversion for my wife and daughters). These involve luxury travel, have small crowds, allow me to get to know the players personally, and generally are better for conducting business in private.
The National Football League is giving up its tax exempt status, which Commissioner Roger Goodell called a "distraction." In a letter to team Men Chris Kelly Jersey owners, Goodell said that the league office and its management council will file tax returns as taxable entities for the 2015 fiscal year. Elite Gold Bobby Orr Jersey Goodell said the NFL has been tax Elite Black Reilly Smith Jersey exempt since 1942, though all 32 teams pay taxes on their income. Goodell's move is inherently a logical one, given the league garnered relatively little from an Elite White Bobby Orr Jersey issue that was proving costly in other ways, said Victor Matheson, an economics professor at the College of Authenitc Gold Dougie Hamilton Jersey Authenitc White Tuukka Rask Jersey Holy Cross. "There were getting less in benefits from the tax exemption than from one publicly financed stadium deal," Matheson told CBS MoneyWatch. "I'm generally highly critical of professional sports in general sucking money from taxpayers, but the tax exempt status of the NFL is the least of my worries." Goodell said the change will not alter the function or operation of the league, since all the teams already pay taxes. "As you know, the effects of the tax exempt status of the league office have Authenitc Black Chris Kelly Jersey been mischaracterized repeatedly in recent years," Goodell said in the letter, dated Tuesday. "The fact is that the business of the NFL has never been tax exempt." The NFL saved "millions rather than billions" from the tax exemption, but money Kid Jeremy Lauzon Jersey distributed by the league to its member teams were then taxed, making the issue a red herring of sorts, Matheson said. Major League Baseball gave up its 501(c)(6) tax exempt status in 2007, which eliminates the requirement for an annual filing of IRS Form 990, which is the publicly available tax return of a tax exempt organization and requires the listing of compensation for the highest paid employees.
