The Middle Class Pays Again!

1,456Views

I am quite sick and tired of these millionaire crybabies interrupting my entertainment and relaxation (FOOTBALL) with their somewhat invalid and poorly orchestrated political protest.

If they had used their position of popularity, adulation, and financial status, to help their communities, perhaps there would not be so much crime, so many unwanted pregnancies, and so many run-away “fathers” in the inner cities today.

Their communities would earn, and have the respect, of many other cultures, including the Police, the Military, the sports fans, and the youngsters they should be showing a good role model. This is  not a “race” thing. This is a Social situation; The Billionaire owners are concerned with their profits; the spoiled-brat players are using discontent to further a cause (?); they don’t seem to be on the same page. Depending on who is speaking, the protest involves different reasons. Many are using the current political climate to further this cause (?). Now the Politicians are getting involved just to further their cause (?).

And you and I are stuck in the middle! Middle America is paying again. ENOUGH!

The spoiling and pampering of these highly paid athletes began with High School. Or maybe with the Pop Warner League. Either way, it has escalated to the  College and Professional level. So much that I hesitate to refer to them as “Professionals”.

This was started by a young man that was raised by a middle class family, spoiled and popular. He did not live in the ghetto like many of his ‘brothers’ and ‘sisters’. He is now using their vulnerabilities for his personal gain.

This “protest” action is poorly organized. The purpose also seems to have changed with the daily headlines. And those looking for their own “fifteen minutes of fame” have jumped on the bandwagon.

STAND STRONG FOLKS! DON’T LET YOUR ENTERTAINMENT BECOME A PAWN. WE CAN HIT THEM IN THEIR WALLET BY NOT PAYING TO WATCH. THERE IS ENOUGH GOOD COLLEGE GAMES AND STILL SOME PRO’S ON TV. SO WE GIVE UP A LITTLE FOR THIS YEAR;

IT IS TIME THESE ARROGANT, SPOILED MILLIONAIRES (INCLUDING THE OWNERS) GET OUR MESSAGE. YOUR POCKETS ARE EMPTY WITHOUT US.  WE CANNOT LET THEM WIN AT OUR EXPENSE ANYMORE.
