The Death of Sportsball

Down at the Hater’s Ball, we were joking around at the banquet about the things you stop enjoying when you become race aware. Pop culture is an obvious one, given the absurd levels of anti-white vitriol we see on TV and in movies. I mentioned that sports stop being fun, as you spend all your time noticing the propaganda and lose track of the games. I’m not the first guy to notice this. At Mencken last year, I was hanging out with a couple of people who despised sportsball because of the endless racial agitation in it.

Back in Lagos, I’m enjoying my free evenings by watching some television and catching up on some movies. I happened to catch about five minutes of a basketball game. It was Cleveland versus Toronto. The announcers were carrying on like LeBron James had just cured cancer, whenever he put the ball in the hoop. Some famous black guy was on the sidelines doing back flips for some reason. It was like watching a bizarre African circus, but the stands were packed with whites. I lasted about five minutes and turned it off.

The NBA has always been an odd business. The people who own the teams are the types who do business from card tables and folding chairs. They keep a bug-out bag ready and leave their car idling in the parking lot, just in case. The owners are all Jewish. The players are all black. The fans are all white. The NBA is pretty much a long running advertisement for upside down world, where blacks are the elite and whites are at the bottom. It is, in many respects, a metaphor for where we are as a society in the current age.

Anyway, it got me wondering how these sportsball leagues remain in business, despite their hostility toward their customers. Going to sporting events is a civic nationalist sort of thing, if you think about it. It is the last place we have where people from the community can meet in public and enjoy something together. The downtown shopping area is dead. Malls are dying off. The movie theater has been replaced by the home theater system. A sportsball game is one of the last public gathering places we have now.

As with so much of our society, the sportsball model assumes the sorts of social arrangements that come with an 80% white society, where people trust one another and take pride in their place. You have an emotional attachment to the local teams, because they represent local pride, even if the players are mercenaries. In a world where all relationships are transactional and one place is as good as another, what’s the point of following the local team? That seems to be showing up in surveys like this about the NBA.

Another tell that sportsball is headed for a bad time is what is happening with college sports. There, fan loyalty has the added hook of attendance. Alabama football not only plays on state loyalty, they have tens of thousands of graduates who can show their pride by supporting the football team. That means donations. Talk to the people who fund raise for athletic departments and they will tell you that the younger graduates are far less willing to give than previous generations. The “culture of giving” is not there with millennials.

It’s not just the changing demographics of America, it is the berserk impulse by the people running the sportsball leagues to destroy what makes sports appealing. Here’s a story about how NASCAR is trying to grovel at the alter of multiculturalism. I can guarantee you that not a single racing fan in the South has said to his buddy, “You know what would make NASCAR perfect? More blacks.” Sports used to be an escape and a celebration. Today, even NASCAR is a sermon and warning. How is that sustainable?

The funny thing is the sportsball leagues appear to understand that their model depends on fooling whitey about their intentions. I went to opening day for the Lagos baseball team and the pre-game ceremonies would have made Leni Riefenstahl blush. I enjoy some flag waving still, but I was offended by the volume and intensity of it. There were calls to hero worship the military, the cops, some civic group they trotted out. I went to see a baseball game and instead I got a Orwellian rally to celebrate the great leader and his works.

The reason they lay it on so thick is they feel they have to. They say flag waving is the last refuge of a scoundrel, so a sport worried about its appeal will resort to claiming it is your patriotic duty to love baseball. Looking around at the crowd that day, I saw very few non-white faces. It was all white families and white business people skipping out from work. Baltimore is a 70% black city that has to import its sports fans. When America is 70% non-white, from where will they import their fans then? Will it matter?

Given what’s happened with the NFL ratings the last few years and the drop in live attendance for all sports, sportsball is in for a rough time. Professional sportsball is not the same business as selling cheap junk from China. For sportsball to work, there has to be an emotional bond between customer and team. That means the fan has to trust the owners of the team are on their side. In our deracinated, low-trust society, that can’t happen. Therefore, it is hard to see how the sportsball model holds up much longer.

Where I live, sportsball takes a back seat to a more wholesome (and white) organized activity, namely Rodeo. It’s not a bad mix of competition, individual skill, teamwork, risk, and sportsmanship. It even involves harmless exploitation of farm animals. What’s not to like?

I wonder if hockey is different. I know that it does not have the national popularity of the other sports, and the in-game environment is as awful as the others, including the over-the top patriotic rituals, etc. (that’s a post for another day); but, the occasional PK Subban and JT Brown notwithstanding, the sport is overwhelmingly white. Even the few black players act pretty white.

That’s because hockey is a shockingly expensive sport. There aren’t too many parents in the hood paying for ice time plus a new set of skates, pads, and a stick every year or two.

Honestly, the flag-waving stuff is pretty minimal in the NHL. I don’t follow it too closely these days, but I really can’t remember ever having seen anything at all like the jingoistic nonsense the NFL subjects its fans to. I assume the league knows that stuff doesn’t sit right with the fans in Canuckistan.

There is no more exciting team sport on earth than NHL hockey – and there is no championship tournament which compares with the Stanley Cup playoffs for skill, excitement, drama, and all of the other qualities which make team sport compelling. NHL hockey is perhaps the ultimate team game, and thus the kind of showboating, look-at-me nonsense which seems to infect so many other sports is largely absent in hockey, even at the NHL level. The players, for the most part, strike a nice balance between professionalism and being approachable and friendly, between reserve and emotion, between seriousness and humor… Read more »

If an NBA , NFL or MLB player brought the house next door to you you’d be well advised to put yours on the market. If an NHL guy lived next door he’d come over and help you shovel out your driveway. I don’t think it’s money per se that keeps blacks out of hockey- maybe today it does, but historically a lot of high level players came from places like Charlestown , MA, Hibbing, MN, and Smooth Butt Falls, ONT. Gretzky’s hometown of Branford, ONT strikes me as being pretty blue collar. My entirely self serving theory is that… Read more »

The followers of football (soccer) in England – and perhaps much of Europe – are an odd lot. For example, Tottenham Hotspur are a club from North London. Many of their supporters are Jewish. So the supporters sometimes refer to themselves collectively as “yids”, in a spirit of cheerful exaggeration.

I suppose you might say that British Jews have a British sense of humour; as far as I know they join in the joke.

The NBA essentially operates like a variant of the WWE. It’s definitely scripted for certain outcomes, which is why a player like Lebron James can stiff arm when going to the basket on every drive. In general it’s stars get preferential treatment to further the illusion that they are all the next coming of Jordan. We know it’s an illusion when these stars play in international competition with international rules and generally look very human. The league has also basically eliminated hard nosed defense against these chosen ones to further the illusion. The playoffs are a bit different in that… Read more »

I attended an NHL game last night. I think there was one black player on the ice and virtually no blacks in the stands. What kind of music did they blare at concert levels every moment the puck was not in play? Rap, hip hop and other shit that can best be described as jungle music. You just can’t escape it.

When I recently attended a Chicago Bulls game, I was annoyed at that same music played during timeouts.

It’s also why you see less and less Africans in baseball. Baseball fields are time and labor intensive to keep in playable shape. And with the destructiveness of ”da hood” much more so. Keeping the facilities clear of debris (don’t want an outfielder stepping on a discarded needle for example) and in good repair (look at Baltimore, Africans can be quite destructive) can be difficult and expensive.
In comparison, outdoor basketball courts require much less maintenance (and require less space).

In the four major sports, white fans generally do not hate the owners. They may despise their decisions not to bring back a certain player, or for several losing seasons. The social arrangement through professional sports is derived by a society who values hard work and competition, which are human qualities. Millennials in particular are invested in their college and pro teams, so the notion that they are unwilling to tap into their savings to support their alma mater or their local franchise is other than accurate. http://www.sportsbusinessdaily.com/Journal/Issues/2017/09/18/Opinion/Singer.aspx White people are not going to give up their sports.

NFL players are mostly black, and prior NFL experiences with striking players and replacement squads showed that the strike scenario totally destroys the long-term profit skimming operation of the ownership cartel, which is the value of the broadcasting rights. That’s why Rozelle gets his contract renewed and Jerry Jones takes a knee with his players. The players have the owners between a rock and a hard place.

Am I a lifelong Eagles fan? Yes. Did I watch the Super Bowl? Yes. Was I happy for Eagles fans? Yes. But I watched JUST TWO regular season games last year, and only one for the entire game. I watched only one playoff game…the aforementioned SB. Football on Sunday around here used to be like church. Now we go to church, and spend our afternoon out and about. I don’t… Read more »

Bread & circuses isn’t all bad. It’s better that the regular person be drawn to sports-as-entertainment, than politics-as-entertainment. Single women took to following politics, because they had so few competing interests (or distractions). With that in mind, we should think twice about wanting men give up their fandom.

Also male bonding over sports reinforces conservative, masculine thinking.

Btw, the most fun I ever had at a game was when a buddy of mine got us courtside seats for a Nuggets game maybe 20 years ago. I have to say that was pretty cool. Anyway, we’re sitting there during a timeout or something, and all the cheerleaders run out to do some sort of dance routine. One of them stayed behind, and she had a knee brace. Total hottie. Two guys behind me made a lewd comment, were joking about getting her name, and my buddy said something about wanting to ask her out. So, I got up,… Read more »

Off topic: In some local news, crabs are rotting in the pots. Maryland doesn’t seem to have any unskilled labor sitting around.

http://www.baltimoresun.com/business/bs-md-crab-visas-approval-20180503-story.html

“Federal immigration officials have agreed to approve 15,000 new guest worker visas for seasonal work, including in a Maryland crab industry grappling with a significant labor shortage, U.S. Rep. Andy Harris said Thursday.”

Harris is your typical businesscuck.

As with all labor “shortages” Maryland doesn’t have any unskilled labor around at the price the crabbers want to pay

younger graduates are far less willing to give than previous generations. The “culture of giving” is not there with millennials.

Well, yeah. Every time I turn around on campus I’m reminded that while the university is happy to take my money, they’d prefer if I stayed home.

As far as I can tell, my tuition pays for a football team, legal support for DACA students, gender transition surgeries, and scientific research, in that order.

When I start getting letters from my university looking for donations, I’ll be sure to wipe my ass with them before sending them back.

Most people know by now that pro athletes are physically dependent on heavy steroid abuse and their genitals often stop working in their 40’s. What is less known is that many of them abuse hard drugs to help them have gay sex with the officials for more favorable judging and refereeing. They ruin their health and they eventually need organ transplants from political prisoners in Cuba, Palestine, North Korea, etc. Sports are a moral cesspool. Boomer cucks were naive about what they were watching, but there’s no excuse for young people to look up to athletes. Ultimately, exposure to nasty… Read more »

One quibble: The reason the “culture of giving” is dying at universities has little to do with the whims of younger grads and more to do with their bank accounts. This is another way the student loan racket is eating the schools’ own seed corn. Graduates stuck in low-paying jobs, paying off ruinous debt for years and years, aren’t going to be writing a whole lot of checks to support the old alma mater. It’s funny when you think of it. Schools are repeating the same dumb mistakes as their students. The students take out ruinous debt in the expectation… Read more »

In my big, brown country the biggest game in town is run by cucked bugmen. They are trying to work out how to balance the old boys club they smooched so much arse to inherit with the screeching corporations they sold the game out to. Now the clubs are getting very worried as their game and the players are being sacrificed on the alter of transexualism, homosexualism and multiculturalism.

I’m not sure if many people know this or not but NASCAR is run out of NYC by Jews.

Take a Friday evening and head out to the local high school football game. Or an evening and go to the baseball game. Sit in the baseball stands with about 10 rows. Sit by the band. Go to the concession stand and buy something and support the band (ticket sales go to the team). Go to Dairy Queen after the game. Go have some real fun!
