Hey NFL: Instead of pandering to the lowlife “social justice” thugs, give it to the Wounded Warrior Project and disabled American veterans.
In a move unlike anything seen from a major American sports league, the league will offer the money in hopes that it will end the ratings-killing protest movement begun by Colin Kaepernick in the preseason of 2016.
According to ESPN:
“The NFL’s multifaceted offer earmarks at least $89 million over a seven-year period for both national and local projects, according to documents reviewed by ESPN. On the national level, owners this year will allocate $5 million, with their commitment growing annually and maxing out at $12 million per year from 2021 through 2023. At the local level, owners will put up $250,000 annually and expect players to match that amount, totaling $500,000 for each team. Players and owners can exceed that amount if they choose, with no matching requirement. In addition, there would be other fundraising opportunities, including telethons and auctions of jerseys worn in games.”
If the players approve their end of the deal, a vote on the appropriation of the money could come as early as March. Commissioner Roger Goodell is believed to have the support of the owners to proceed with the deal.
As far as how the money would be distributed, ESPN reports:
“National funding would be allocated accordingly: 25 percent to the United Negro College Fund, 25 percent to Dream Corps and 50 percent to the Players Coalition, which has filed 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) paperwork for nonprofit status as a fiscally sponsored project. This week, the coalition hired the Hopewell Fund to oversee and advise the group, which hopes to work with grassroots and nonprofit organizations in its areas of focus.
Under the proposal, money at both the national and local level would provide grants for nonprofit organizations focused on law enforcement and community relations, criminal justice reform and education reform.
A working group of five players, five owners (or owners’ representatives) and two NFL staff members would help identify future initiatives to pursue.”
……The other gigantic concern here is the 50 percent of funds earmarked for the Players Coalition. The money spent by this group will probably, at least in some significant measure, mirror the spending pattern of the NFL Players Association and how they’ve spent their money. Which, should serve as a source of great concern for all.
Back in October, tax documents revealed by conservative watchdog group 2ndVote, showed how the NFLPA liberally (figuratively and literally) distributed funds to groups associated with George Soros.
From that report, we learned that “In 2013 and 2015, the NFLPA also contributed to the AFL-CIO’s community affiliate, Working America. This group, according to Open Secrets, contributed $1 million to defeat President Trump during the 2016 election. However, the group’s anti-Trump activities were not limited to the election. According to the Washington Times, ‘“Working America has since mobilized against the Republican tax-cut framework, denouncing it as the “Trump tax scam.”’
In addition we learned that, “In tax documents recently released by 2ndVote, a conservative watchdog group, we learn that the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) made a donation of $5,000 in 2015 to the Center for Community Change Action, a George Soros funded and adamantly anti-Trump organization.”
It’s important to note, that these instances barely scratched the surface of all the left-wing activist groups that had received funds from the NFLPA. Why would any of that change with considerably larger amounts of money given to activist players who are essentially ransoming the national anthem?
Background on Soros:
He’s wealthy because his hedge funds operate offshore in the Netherlands Antilles away from scrutiny of the Securities and Exchange Commission.
He funds rent-a-mob thugs like antifa, he backed the Berkeley riots, pro Hillary disruptions, the ‘black lives matter’ rampage in Ferguson, and more than 50 radical groups in the ‘women’s march’. Basically, he finances thugs and radicals as puppets to push his agenda.
He facilitates various organizations, foundations, and financial sources as tools for an empire designed to mold the world to his own warped vision. His accomplishments include trying to silence media opponents, funding ACORN, financing his vision of a post-America New World Order, and spreading his malignant Fabian socialist ideology throughout economic and political infrastructures.
The NFL is not only donating money to Soros, but its trying to bribe overpaid infantile thugletes into showing proper behavior.
Yeah, that’s it. If we just throw some money to the ‘black lives matter’ miscreants, that will make everything better. In the meantime, ticket sales plummet, seats are empty, and fans refuse to watch your shit on T.V.
Good luck with that bribery.
Update: Guess where the money is being diverted from to pay bribery to the ‘social causes’:
At the time of the announcement, however, details about where the money would come from were unclear. The NFL said only that owners would be allowed to allocate funds into “projects dealing with criminal justice reform, law enforcement/community relations and education.” But, Reid says, the money spent on these projects isn’t new — it’s simply being reallocated from existing charitable giving projects.
“In the discussion that we had, Malcolm [Jenkins] conveyed to us — based on discussions that he had with the NFL — that the money would come from funds that are already allocated to breast cancer awareness and Salute to Service,” Reid told Slate. “So it would really be no skin off the owners’ backs: They would just move the money from those programs to this one.”
Taking funds from cancer research and salutes to the military. Fits right in with their ‘take a knee’ douchebaggery.
