The NFL Plans To Ramp Up The Woke In 2021

Are you jonesing for more woke out of the NFL? Your dream will soon come true. The league plans to add more social justice messaging to fields, helmets, and to its pregame activities, according to Front Office Sports, which reports it’s all part of a 10-year, $250 commitment to “combat systemic racism.” The site reports that the league will push social justice messaging via “on-field signage, decals on player helmets, and in-stadium PSAs.”

It gets better. The league also plans to make the black national anthem “a prominent part of all big league events.” In Sept. 2020, the NFL used a video of Alicia Keys singing “Lift Every Voice and Sing” at stadiums around the league. Then, at the Super Bowl, the league ran another video of Keys singing. Will singers perform the song on NFL fields in 2021? The NFL doesn’t seem to be indicating what the plan is.

It also sounds like the NFL will bring back its Instagram nonsense where the league highlights people like Althea Bernstein, the woman who claimed she was attacked with lighter fluid and set on fire June 24, 2020. By October, the NFL Instagram page profiled Bernstein as part of its ‘Inspire Change – Say Her Name’ program.

The only problem? The Department of Justice announced in early October that it couldn’t find evidence of Bernstein being attacked. There was no traffic camera evidence. No surveillance evidence. No Ring evidence. Nothing. Zero. The DOJ closed the case, and Bernstein’s legal team quietly went away without challenging the investigation results.


And yet the NFL went ahead and made the woman part of ‘Say Her Name.’

Now the league wants everyone to know it’s going further with the woke. We’re talking woke on PEDs. We’re talking an “Inspire Change” theme during Week 17-18, FOS reports. “End Racism” in the end zone will be back. “Inspire Change” isn’t going anywhere.

And then comes the huge moneyshot — the black anthem before the league’s official kickoff on Thursday September 9. The league will play “Lift Every Voice and Sing” as part of the night’s festivities.

Perhaps Roger Goodell and the NFL will hire Macy Gray so she and her newly designed American flag can walk out there to the middle of Raymond James Stadium to make things all better in this country.

  1. Inside the NFL meeting on the upcoming season:

    Owners: What are we going to do to bring more fans back into the fold. Most televised games ratings have gone down, what should we do?

    Goodell: I have a great idea let’s just go all in on woke. I know it’s the biggest thing driving fans away and costing you money but we’ll get invited to liberal party’s, they’ll talk good about us on ESPN, msnbc, and cnn. That’s what’s really important guys. Let’s not lose focus. We must go full woke.

    Owners: We’re not sure that’s a good idea but we don’t want to get called racist so go ahead go full woke.

    Fucking morons.

  2. I didn’t think they could be any more stupid….. I was wrong. I wonder if the dipshit will look at the ASG poor ratings and wonder why that was……..

    I won’t be watching very much of at all. Thank God there’s CFB, specifically SEC football.

    • Hockey is woke. They lost me when they shut down last season to protest George Floyd and the thug in Kenosha that got shot. The Blackhawks have made woke, announcements, players kneel, and Carolina is playing the idiotic pronoun game. Not as bad as the NBA or NFL, yet, but enough for me.

      • To do away with a lifelong passion (being a fan and following the sport) it’s going to have to take something more than a dumb season of ham fisted signaling.

        I will say though —> If it continues and becomes a permanent feature then 100% I’m out. Period.

        I’ve utterly ditched baseball basketball and (looks like) football. I’m tired of the bull****

  3. Last year I was on my way to do violence against some black folk down the street. But I saw “END RACISM” in an NFL end zone, and well, what could I do? I stopped, cried, and said “no more racism from me!”

    They either honestly think we are that stupid, or this is all a virtue signaling stunt. Likely the latter, but who knows?

  4. Honestly, I just want to watch football…that’s it, pure and simple. I could care less what gripes, issues, or beliefs these guys have, they’re modern day gladiators pretending to be activists / politicians…we have too many of those as it is

  5. Given the ratings declines in every thing that has gone woke (NBA, Oscars, Emmys, Grammys, MLB All Star Game), you would think that the NFL wouldn’t move in that direction. I guess we will see if the NFL really is immune to fans tuning out. I love sports, but I won’t be watching.
