once you have paid him the Dane-geld You never get rid of the Dane.
Rudyard Kipling: Dane-geld
The most significant result from the dropping NFL ratings due to turning the NFL into a platform for SJW comes from Rush Limbaugh via Ace of Spades post on the NFL.
Limbaugh also notes the networks are going to have to pay advertisers a lot of money in free ads and give-backs due to not hitting the ratings goals they promised when they sold the add space.
One of the things that our SJW friends have going for them for a long time is the fact that for large business concerns is that the cost of paying them off, either in terms of ash or symbolic ceremonial actions that give them legitimacy is generally trivial.
A photo op and a check large enough to keep the SJW leaders in airfare, hotels, good restaurants and booze and you could count on your company getting a “get out of protests” free card avoiding the bad publicity aided and abetted by a press whose payoff to the SJW community consists of said coverage and publicity.
For this reason the same NFL that objected when the Dallas Cowboys honoring their murdered police has had no problem with the various protests that have spread since Colin Kaepernick first took a knee.
But the prospect of the NFL having to actually lay out cash to customers thanks to falling ratings and the resulting drop in revenue from future advertisings rates and network licensing might actually change the dynamic. It’s pretty much the same situation that A & E had when they discovered to their embarrassment that they were dependent on a customer base diametrically opposed to the agenda of he SJW’s they were trying to appease.
I suspect that if these ratings drops continue over the next few weeks and the price of these protests continue to rise the NFL will decide that the price of appeasing the Kaepernicks of the world is too high.
Closing thought, I suspect once the cost of these actions funnels down to the contracts of the NFL’s player/protesters the agents who negotiate these contracts will take note. That will be bad news for college players with NFL hopes who decided to join in on this nonsense.
