NFL Taps Jay-Z for Social-Justice Issues—and Entertainment Offerings

Posted by M. C. on August 14, 2019

and expand the NFL’s entertainment offerings, including the Super Bowl halftime show and other creative projects

Is the real concern social justice or the bottom line?

Hello social justice warriors-I am from the NFL and I am here to help. I predict an NFL image malfunction.

Regarding Jay-Z-He may be a help or a hindrance, I know nothing about him.

The NFL has struck a broad alliance with Jay-Z in which the rapper will both help the league with one of its thorniest problems—smoothing out continuing tensions with players over social-justice issues—and expand the NFL’s entertainment offerings, including the Super Bowl halftime show and other creative projects.

The NFL and Roc Nation, the entertainment company founded by Jay-Z, have launched a partnership in which Jay Z will take a prominent role in a social-justice program the league launched last year at a time when it was still roiled by controversy over player protests during the national anthem started by Colin Kaepernick.

The parties said Roc Nation will also expand and play an integral role in the NFL’s entertainment operations—not just the halftime show, but also the production and distribution of other new football-related content together on streaming services. That could include original music, in addition to podcasts for players to voice their opinions on social and cultural issues that are important to them. Front Office Sport first reported an NFL-Roc Nation partnership.

The deal effectively positions Jay-Z—who once rapped “I said no to the Super Bowl, you need me, I don’t need you”—as the face of the NFL’s social-justice program, Inspire Change, which was launched earlier in the year after years of unrest among its players. But the topic has been a prickly one for the NFL, as Kaepernick has gone unsigned for two years since inspiring the movement while some players continued to demonstrate through last year…

Inspire Change’s stated goals are promoting education and economic advancement, improving police and community relations, and enacting criminal-justice reform. The initiative was started in partnership with the Players Coalition, which was founded by a group of players seeking to enact social reform, and has supported charities and causes across the country. Patriots owner Robert Kraft was among the key figures in bringing the partnership with Roc Nation together.

Jay-Z said in an interview that he felt comfortable becoming a leading voice for the Inspire Change because of the league’s ability to reach so many different people. He is getting involved even though he may not agree with the politics of some of his new business partners—NFL team owners.

“I’m black. That’s my world,” Jay-Z said at his offices in Manhattan. If he didn’t do business with wealthy business interests who he may disagree with politically, he added, “then I couldn’t have any TV shows. I couldn’t put my platform on TV because I’m sure someone who owns the broadcast network has supported someone who I don’t believe should be in office.”

“I can’t control, no one can control the world that we live in currently and people’s choice to vote self interests,” the hip-hop icon added, referring to “very, very rich people.”

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell championed Jay-Z’s ability to connect with younger fans that the league needs to both secure its future audience and make a broader cultural impact…

Dave Hodges Defines the NFL’s Role as Collaborator with DHS Gestapo in Destroying American Constitutional Rights (And How to Stop Them) Dec. 8, 2013

Every NFL Stadium Is a FEMA Camp Hiding In Plain Sight

On September 23, 2011, children, without warning, were abducted from their Denver schools by FEMA and taken to the Colorado Sports Authority football stadium. At my son’s middle school, we cannot even have my son’s aunt pick him unless she is registered with the school and shows identification. Yet, FEMA can literally abduct children from their schools without parental permission or notification…

I am a typical NFL fan. This is outrageous. Someone should do something. Tell me again when do pre-season games start?

Whatever happened to just playing football? When I used to watch an NFL game on television, I only wanted to watch the game. I never appreciated listening to their liberal political agenda often being spewed out by their talking heads such as Bob Costas.

The NFL Is An Extension of the TSA

The NFL pat downs.

Invasive  NFL security. What’s the difference?

 The NFL has decided it is not enough for Americans to be abused by the TSA at the airport, the NFL has become the newest version of the TSA.

After Censoring Super Bowl Ad from Veteran Group Aimed at Respecting the Anthem, NFL Establishes Owner-Player Committee on Social Justice

Posted by M. C. on January 24, 2018

This makes the NFL and the owners look even more pathetic. Is brain trauma contagious?

One of the commentators may have a point. The people who care about SJ and kneeling don’t watch. The people who watch don’t care.

What do the NFL  and owners care about?

The NFL has established a player-owner committee focusing on social and racial justice initiatives.

If true, Soros has friends everywhere from the NFL to NSA

Intel gathered was sent to facility owned by George Soros.

Maguire, reportedly revealed during a fund raising meeting for an intelligence gathering operation in Afghanistan, that National Security Advisor H.R.

Steelers-Bengals brutality a reminder life-altering violence is at NFL’s core

Posted by M. C. on December 6, 2017

More on the National Soros Football League

The debate is not complete until Costas blames NFL violence on guns.

https://www.theguardian.com/sport/blog/2017/dec/05/steelers-bengals-game-violence-ryan-shazier-nfl

The body count included a pair of young men carted off on stretchers and still more knocked out with serious injuries. Some were a result of routine plays that embody football’s existential risks, others were the offspring of more sinister intentions. Who can say, as the medics rush the field before a hushed stadium or from the antiseptic fluorescent buzz of a hospital room, which brand of violence is more concerning? Does it even matter?

NFL Joins Forces With Anti-US, One World UN Government George Soros -And You Are Still Watching The NFL Because…

NFL’s Anthem Surrender Deal Would Send Millions to Soros-Backed Social-Justice Groups

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. Read the rest of this entry »

Organized Sports and the Total State – LewRockwell

Posted by M. C. on November 24, 2017

The government gets what it paid for in those color guards and flyovers. The same thing the pledge of allegiance was invented for-blind obedience.

https://www.lewrockwell.com/2017/11/gc-dilsaver/total-state-total-sports/

The POTUS chastised the NFL for disrespecting the flag and the NFL Commish chastised the POTUS for a “lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities.” Thus, the jingoistic USA in demanding that we respect the sacred flag and nationalism gets crossed up with the narcissistic NFL in its demand that we respect the sacred sport of football and athleticism. Spectator sport indeed! as one roots for an increase in internecine fighting within the totalitarian powers that be. For both sports and nationalism go hand-in-hand. Read the rest of this entry »

Roger Goodell tells NFL owners ‘everyone should stand for the national anthem’

Posted by M. C. on October 11, 2017

To little to late.  I detect the smell of fear and bad ratings.

Speaking of Jerry Jones, you would think Jones owned the Steelers. He can’t decide whether to kneel or stand from one week to the next.

Integrity thy name is NOT Jones nor Goodell.

The Real Problem: The Militarization of the NFL | The American Conservative

Posted by M. C. on September 27, 2017

Shocker! It’s about the money. Paying for “patriotism”.

It’s time for sports teams and dumb shit players to quit being the pentagons’s whore.

http://www.theamericanconservative.com/articles/the-real-problem-the-militarization-of-the-nfl/

 Before 2009, Colin Kaepernick would have had to find some other way to protest racism against African Americans.  That’s because until the height of the Iraq War, NFL football players weren’t even required to leave the locker room for the national anthem, much less stand for it.
