Victor Davis Hanson, a Trump acolyte till death, wrote a piece that predicts that NFL fans will turn away in droves once the season gets started. He even mentions the disproportionate amount of blacks who play in the NFL and takes a similar dig at the NBA. He figures if management and ownership need to become more black he suggests the NFL should look into getting more Asians and Hispanics plus Whites into the NFL. But I sense he is acting a bit tongue in cheek here when mentioning that because he brings up the history of the "meritocracy" on display on NFL rosters. He also neglects to mention the Latin take over in baseball. See below his article which I file under yet another "just missed the point" piece that travels close to this website but doesn't really dig in. Like so many it appears he assumes Whites will never be able to play CB etc. https://www.nationalreview.com/2020/07/nfl-football-politics-risks-alienating-fans/ Hanson fails to point out that under the current COVID-19 conditions if the NFL was to return there are two, at least in the short term, obstacles that will interfere with measuring his theory of fan backlash. For starters fans are so hungry for sports I imagine the TV ratings will be sky high at least in the beginning. Plus if there are no fans or a limited amount of fans allowed at games there would be no way of knowing how bad attendance is being affected. I do agree though that once these short term issues are washed out I suspect the backlash will be greater than the original backlash when the anthem controversy was in full bloom. The two sports I anticipate will suffer the most will be the in your face NBA and the NFL. I don't think I am alone here but while I feel the backlash will have some sputtering strength I wonder if it will be strong enough to wake up the echoes to any significant degree. So at the end of the day the looming question circles back to how big will the White flight fan brigade end up? And if it is significant will it force teams to become more White friendly? Hard to imagine that but a person has to cling to something positive.
