National Football League
- See also: Unplug the NFL
The National Football League (NFL) is a politically correct sports league that is subsidized by taxpayers to the tune of $1 billion per year, and is so heavily influenced by the liberal media that Christian players are typically not even allowed to express their faith. The league relies heavily on emotional gambling and monetary gambling, as well as violence, for its popularity among television viewers. Due to its dependence on the pro-gay media, the NFL typically promotes the homosexual agenda. While fining its players for doing various acts of self-expression, including patriotic and pro-police acts, the NFL does not fine players for dishonoring the United States, our flag, and our anthem.
Poor cities are routinely looted by NFL owners under threat of moving the team to another location, which leaves the cities with huge bills to pay on empty stadiums. Minneapolis taxpayers had to pony up $500 million in 2012 to prevent the Vikings from moving to L.A., and $350 million in taxpayer funding was not enough for St. Louis to keep the Rams. Detroit has had to sue to seek repairs of safety and zoning violations at the abandoned Pontiac Stadium, which hosted the Super Bowl in 1982.
|NFL-related activity||Amount in Revenue|
|Fantasy football (gambling)||$11 billion per year|
|Televised games and team sales||$10 billion per year|
|Taxpayer subsidies||$1 billion per year|
No other sports league bilks the taxpayers as much as the NFL does, and 29 out of 31 current stadiums were built using millions of dollars in taxpayer funding. "Taxpayers have spent nearly $3 billion on the 16 stadiums that" hosted the NFL games that opened the 2015 season. "Field of Schemes" is a website that exposes many of these ripoffs of the public by the NFL, such as how the Democrat governor of Missouri is "proposing to hand $400 million to [the] Rams owner," including $100 million to pay off the debt on the last stadium that was built for the team.
As an NFL game ends and fans begin leaving the stadium, it is best to avoid the nearby roads. One study showed that the average fan at many NFL games has a blood-alcohol level higher than safe level for driving as recommended by the NTSB.
The league is composed of 32 professional football teams from the United States, divided into two conferences (the American and the National), each of which have four, four-team divisions. Teams play sixteen regular season games over seventeen weeks (each team receives a "bye" week in which it doesn't play), comprised of six games in a home-and-home against the other three teams in its division, six games against other conference opponents (two from each of the other conference divisions, over a six-year period every team will play every other conference opponent home-and-home), and four teams against all the opponents of a division from the other conference (over an eight-year period, every team will play every other team in the other conference home-and-home).
Twelve teams qualify for the playoffs (the winners of each division and four "wild-card" teams, the two teams in each conference with the best record among non-division winners). The playoff consists of four rounds:
- The first round features the two wild card teams from each conference against the two division winners with the poorer records (the division winners with the best records are given a bye).
- The second round features the winners from the first round, who will go up against the two division winners that had the first-round bye.
- The third round is the "conference championship", featuring each second round winner.
- The playoffs culminate in the NFL's championship game, the Super Bowl, featuring the winners from each conference.
The origins of the NFL go back to a single game of soccer played between Rutgers and Princeton on November 6, 1869. The game used modified London Football Association rules that began the distinction between (American) soccer and rugby. The NFL was originally formed in 1920 as the American Professional Football Association but in 1922 it officially adopted the name of the National Football League as it is today. George Halas, of Chicago is credited with being the father of the league and is compared to George Washington by many enthusiasts of the game. Most of the original teams in 1922 no longer exist, but some like the Giants are still around. In 1960, Kansas City businessman Lamar Hunt founded the American Football League (AFL) to be a competitor to the NFL. By 1970, the two leagues merged with most of the original NFL teams becoming the National Football Conference and the AFL teams plus the Baltimore Colts, Pittsburgh and Cleveland becoming the American Football Conference. During the 1970s, the league had many electrifying quarterbacks like Johnny Unitas, Roger Staubach and Fran Tarkenton. In the 1980s, one dynasty emerged as predominant- the 49ers led by Joe Montana, although the 1985 Bears went 15-1 and won the Super Bowl with a top 3 all-time defense. Dallas Cowboys, with running back Emmitt Smith, were a dynasty that won 3 Super Bowls in the 1990s. The 2000s had more parity, while the 2010's saw the rise of the New England Patriot dynasty.
