SJW corpocracy smells blood

They're going after the Washington Redskins again.
  • FedEx is requesting a name change for the team that plays at FedEx Field. A day after a group of investment firms asked FedEx and other companies to stop doing business with the team unless it changes the team name, FedEx released a statement to multiple media outlets saying it has requested a name change. “We have communicated to the team in Washington our request that they change the team name,” the statement said.
  • At Nike.com, there’s no sign of any merchandise bearing the name or logo of the Washington franchise. There’s more: The vertical drop-down menu on the left side of the site that comes up when searching for gear for any of the other NFL teams completely omits the Washington franchise. Last year, Nike omitted the team name from its annual Salute to Service collection. The more recent action sends a much stronger message.
If Snyder and the NFL are foolish enough to cave on this, it's only a matter of time before the New England PATRIOTS and the Kansas City CHIEFS are targeted. And no amount of exegesis concerning what is and what is not a racial slur is going to prevent it.

At some point in time, people are going to grasp that giving any ground at all to these demoniacs is simply an invitation to subsequent attacks. There is always one, and only one, answer to give to corporate threats to pull support in order to force your compliance in anything: "fine, go away now."

Any day now, I expect the NFL will replace the national anthem with 'Imagine.'

Blogger Carlos Carrasco July 03, 2020 7:27 AM  

Oh boy! I just found out it 'Lift ev'ry voice and Sing' instead of 'Imagine.' I don't know which is worse. I only know that I'm not watching.

Blogger Jim July 03, 2020 7:30 AM  

That would be incredibly stupid. What the hell is FedEx going to do if the Redskins tell them to sod off? I'm sure they'd love having the stadium empty and costing them money while the residents of Washington know exactly who to blame for their team playing on college fields. And Nike already took a big financial hit for their wokeness. If the NFL demanded they produce merchandise for all teams with equal prominence for all tiers of performance or lose all NFL licenses, they'd panic. It's not like the NFL couldn't find anyone else to pick that up.

The NFL holds all the cards, so it's only logical that they will fold.

In a proactive measure your books about SJW could be mentioned on normy comms platforms. At least in my case doing so is a hell of a lot better than doing the usual conservative's wail and whine while waiting for an intellectual/essayist to tell me what the Left has just done and how outraged I should be, you know the conservative cargo cult.

Blogger Canadian Warlord July 03, 2020 7:40 AM  

Does Schneider still own them? My NFL knowledge is a good 2 decades old so probably he's sold them or died.

If memory serves, was that one of the stadiums NOT built with public money? To the tune of $400M ? About the only chance the Redskins (or the Edmonton Eskimos) have - an owner who ignores the public.

"Dollar" Bill Wirtz almost ran the Chicago Blackhawks into the ground, but he's the kind of owner that would get them through this nonsense. I wonder how his son will handle it.

Blogger Damelon Brinn July 03, 2020 8:02 AM  

WaPo did a couple surveys of American Indians that backfired, showing that they were either neutral on the name or actually proud of it. Many Redskins fans thought that would be the end of it, but of course it wasn't. The anti-name crowd just went quiet and waited. The team needs permission to build a new stadium somewhere soon, so they knew that would be their chance to force the issue. As it turns out, woke corporatism is pushing it early.

A lot of sports news organizations and individual reporters were already calling them "the Washington team" and passive-aggressively leaving the name and logo out of products. When the NFL didn't push back on that, I took that to mean the converged league office didn't like the name either, but the owners don't like the idea of the league forcing an owner to do anything. So they're letting the sponsors do what they would have liked to do.

Good point about the Patriots. It doesn't have to be a "slur" to be offensive anymore. The fact that it's a positive term for a white group will be enough to attack it. Then all the sports teams can have faggy names like "The Fire".

Dear Mr. NFL man,

As a Brit i find the name and logo of the Oakland Raiders offensive. My ancestors wore eye-patches because of opthalmic issues, and the image of the man with the eye-patch brings back many buried feelings of prejudice against my people for their differently-abled bodies. Having them slurred as pirates is still very painful to see. Please change the name to the Oakland Readers, to show how people with differently-abled bodies are still capable human beings. Thank you. Do it now. Thanks. I mean it.

Bye.

Don't forget to stand for the "Black National Anthem" while you're at it.

Lift Ev'ry Voice And Sing," traditionally known as the Black national anthem, is expected to be performed live or played before every Week 1 NFL game, and the league is considering a variety of other measures during the upcoming season to recognize victims of police brutality, a source familiar with the league's discussions told The Undefeated on Thursday.

Does Schneider still own them?

Snyder. He's Jewish, but he probably doesn't deserve to be confused with the foot fetishist and likely diddler on Nickelodeon.

Yes, he still owns the team. He was young when he bought it, so he could own it for a few more decades. He could sell, of course, if he foresaw that the NFL was headed downward. He probably won't, though, because he's a jock-sniffer.

Standing firm on the name has been his one smart move (among a lot of bad ones) since buying the team. A lot of idiots think changing the name and logo would be profitable because it would sell a bunch of new merchandise. Snyder at least knows that you can't replace decades of brand attachment that easily. That doesn't mean they won't be able to twist his arm hard enough, though. I'd bet that the league office is working hard behind the scenes to encourage him to go along, offering to help with their stadium deal and promising a future Super Bowl and other considerations, without making it an official quid pro quo.

"Don't forget to stand for the "Black National Anthem" while you're at it."

Yes, and this won't stop after one week. It's a team effort using the corporations, including the NFL to suck up to the Black Slaves of the DNC, and the Black Slaves literally bending over both front and back for their owners. All Black Lives Matter donations go directly to DNC coffers -- as I suppose there may be one or two around that still don't know this.

This, of course, is a big double finger to all White fans who even mildly care about Western Civilization let alone the USA. You either show hate for the West and Christianity or you will be shown the door.

The NFL is alone among all the majors in breaking the union, 37 or so years ago. No guaranteed contracts. Some of that attitude may still permeate the backrooms and owners' boxes. They own the stadiums, the teams are easily replaceable. More easily than any other pro sport I'd say.

It's pretty cracked already. The Redskins are the only team that hasn't won more than 10 games in a season in the last 20 years (Snyder's reign), and it's showing in thousands of empty seats. Even the worst teams have had one or two special seasons where it seemed like they were going somewhere, to keep fans engaged. Now fans are trying to convince themselves, with varying levels of success, that another social-media-loving black QB chosen by the owner will be the answer. Some are already bracing for a name change, like an abused spouse bracing for the next swing, but it's going to hit them hard.

UND has a Native American scholarship program, and Native American studies program and supports Native Americans in other ways, and it just didn't matter. Interestingly enough, Florida State was allowed to keep the Seminole name under similar circumstances.

Not just Chiefs and Patriots, there are many other NFL team names that are highly problematic. Here is just a short, but in no way comprehensive, list:
Cowboys (racist white men), Buccaneers (white colonialists), Vikings (white colonialists), Giants (big racist white men), Packers (racist white men who worked in meat packing), Steelers (racist white men who worked in steel factories), Chargers (Charlottesville, hello?!), Texans (racist white men who are living on Mexican land), Cardinals (reminds me of Catholics, racist of course), Browns (you think it's ok for you as a white man to appropriate that color?), Ravens (again, you're not allowed to appropriate that color even if it's on a bird), Bills (it just sounds racist, I don't know why. It's in buffalo, and the white men killed all the buffalo's, so it's got to change), Panthers (again with a black animal? These don't belong to you, you racist!), Bengals (British imperialism in India? Hello? That's obviously racist!), Broncos (reminds me too much of racist cowboys), 49ers (racist white men), Saints (obviously), Titans (racist Greco-Roman heritage), Raiders (I have no idea what this is, but it's probably racist colonialists stuff, maybe we could change it to "looters" and it will get a pass), Colts (like a colt 45? The gun racist white men carry? Are you seriously gonna tell me that's not racist?), Bears (this would be ok, until Owen ruined it. Now it has too much association with racist, antisemitic moon-buggy denying anti-vaxxers).

60 - skins won 10 games in 2005 and 2012. / also - packers (and steelers) have JOBS! altho gays could appropriate packers for aaron… / they have already gone after a slew of mascots, unemploying folks of color, btw. / like the NFL, MLB has 15 or so teams that could expect the treatment. I mean... come on... the WHITE SOX? hoops and hockey have 10 or so each as well. this BS is like the gift that keeps giving. / looking like a lot more range time.

Akulkis, there are entire NHL rosters just making salary floor with zombie contracts featuring players who have retired and entered the hall of fame. The NFLPA is toothless compared to the NHLPA and the MLB equivalent, both of which have orchestrated lost seasons to strikes and lockouts. The NFL brought in entire replacement teams in 1987.

I know it's not 1987, things have slid far, but in the context of all major sports the NFL is one where the owners have it better. It may be the nature of rosters and the importance of coaching over raw talent.

In the NFL, generally, you have to be on the roster to get paid. That is not how the other sports roll. The NHL agents take 1-2 years before they have gamed the system and the second contract of an emerging star player is always a sword of democles hanging over ownership. Suddenly every contract is about how much they are projected to produce. NFL contracts are still partly based on how much you have already contributed. The agents don't have anywhere near the leverage.

The NFL is many things but not one of the franchises operates as a farm team to the league. The owners cooperate on things like revenue sharing, even on merchandising. It used to be, before it got the cancer, the gold standard for how bad it makes the other leagues look in comparison.

And the other leagues also have the cancer. Not that I support them anymore anyway...

If he really wanted to make a point. The Washington Bureaucrats or The Washington Swamprats.

Or.. The Washington Wastrels.

Like banks, which borrow from central banks and capital markets and outright conjure assets by making keyboard entry loans, listed cos. grow via financing connections and trillions in borrowings bought by broke income-seeking pension funds and insurance cos. that derive income from the continuing existence of estate taxes that would otherwise strip families of new long term assets. They continually trade the companies built by others while managers and lenders fleece value from shareholders who get either no dividends or paltry 2-3% manipulated yields. In this game, satisfied customers can be optional.

>> The NFL brought in entire replacement teams in 1987.

That's because the players foolishly went on strike.

>> The NFL is many things but not one of the franchises operates as a farm team to the league.

The NFL doesn't have a farm system, because, just like the NBA, they use the NCAA to develop talent. MLB and the NHL have wisely not soiled themselves with the NCAA.

>> The owners cooperate on things like revenue sharing, even on merchandising. It used to be, before it got the cancer, the gold standard for how bad it makes the other leagues look in comparison.

Long ago, the NFL decided that it's better for business if even small-market teams have a chance at obtaining and retaining top-tier players, instead of allowing what happened in MLB, when the NY Yankees dominated the American League baseball for decades.

Total roster salary caps are a good thing for the competitiveness of the league. The NFL's whole system is designed to amplify reversion to the mean (by worst record gets 1st draft pick and revenue sharing), making it very difficult for any team to dominate even it's own division for more than 3 years.

That being said, the NFL has certainly made all the wrong decisions for the last 10 years or so.

This is a classic cultural Marxist attack. Unnamed investment firms puppet FedEx to do their bidding, leaving them to take the blame when things backfire on them. Any pushback that doesn't involve finding out the investment firm's identities and holding them accountable isn't going far enough.

The only reason to look "weak" is to make yourself bait so that they all are encouraged to come out and attack you into a waiting trap where they are all taken down.

There is no other reason. Unless the object is to destroy them all. There is no reason to look weak.

@76 About a third black. I don't have to live in their neighborhoods. They aren't my biggest gripe. Governor Tate Reeves aka Cuck is my enemy. In the space of a week he went from "let the people vote" to "no point to my veto". No point?. I would have been more inclined to vote for him if he had given his veto. I moved here from Minnesota. I didn't see but a couple of black people the four years I lived there but the state is clearly insane. With that said, I'm thinking of moving back but this time way up on the border of Canada.
If the politics are against me wherever I go I'd rather be surrounded by white people.

I suggest northern Michigan. For one, you're won't be in the midst of the giant Mosquito nursery that is northern MN.

@96 Just last night on Zillow I saved several lake homes in the UP. Good to know about the mosquito's, I hate them. The crazy Gretchen lady in charge up there has given me pause. I'm very much interested to see if Trump wins Michigan again this year. In a non-cheating world, seems like he would especially after what she has put them through over Covid
