    The purpose of this thread is to discuss the sports media, especially as it relates to white athletes. It is also to discuss anti-white racism in the sports media.

    There is a site called Pro Football Focus. They have depth charts in which they rate the players.

    I noticed they had Pro Bowler Paul Posluszny, who had 162 tackles last year, as a below average starter.

    Chad Greenway, who had 134 tackles last year, was rated as a poor starter.

    These ratings are ridiculous. Tackles aren't the only factor in evaluating a linebacker but they should be one of the main ones.

    Posluszny and Greenway are good starters. I would guess that race had a part in their bad ratings.

    obiously they must look at other things, not everything is without bias and things can be manipulated although they act like they are the one site that doesnt. I saw the preview for the jags and they say Poz is "limited" and although he led the league in tackles and was their 3rd best run defender , "there were times where he was slow over the top of a run" or "failed to get off blocks" if that were true then he wouldnt have had so many tackles. His coverage has been bashed but he is pretty good in coverage for a linebacker. He got bashed for one play years ago where Fred Jackson beat him one on one for a 30 yard gain, and it was a mental mistake on his part after he had to defend himself ,after a change to a new system, the poor guy was pretty beaten up and asked around and realized "wait pretty much every linebacker will lose sometimes in one on one situations". Its just guys like him are crucified for mistakes like that.

    Sports Illustrated has had a hard on for Johnny Manziel since he started breaking records his freshman year. In their newest issue, the NFL scouting reports, SI rips Manziel for about 75% of their Cleveland Browns report. Truly pathetic.

    Also, SI has had a mancrush on Braxton Miller for 2 or 3 years now. It must be killing them that they keep predicting he will win the Heisman Trophy and he can't even stay on the field.

    Two factors (I perceive) really messing up contemporary sports media..

    - 24 hour sports news cycle.. which calls for tabloid off-the-field 'news' & useless, overanalyzed minutiae to fill up dead time between games & seasons.
    - The infiltration of traditional media Liberals into sports media.. prompting cultural Marxist perspectives & proselytizing into sports news.

    Imo., the Ray Rice & Peterson stories have personified this combination. Yesterday, both Fox network pre-games I watched led with tabloid Rice/Peterson off-the-field stories (instead of game day analysis). And another network was bothering female Raven fans @ the Thursday night game who were wearing Rice jerseys. Indignantly asking 'How could any woman now wear a Rice jersey ?' But the truth is, the she-WFs probably didn't wanna lose the 100 bucks they spent on it after they bought it over the summer.. Who cares, it's not newsworthy.

    I've noticed that every 2 weeks or so, they release another "sports" story, like Michael Sam, Donald Sterling, Ray Rice, Adrian Peterson...events which happened months before or could have been released at any time. Then, all the "sports" media beats the story to death for a couple weeks.

    Good call.., I remember when Nelson Mandela passed away, ESPN spent days celebrating & eulogizing his life... Right now I'm listening to Mike Golic deliver a lecture on 'sports' radio about child abuse.
    The so-called sports & mainstream medias have basically mated into a single, full-time stream of cultural Marxist commentary.

    Even as recent as 20-25 years ago, it would've seemed strange & inappropriate for Madden & Summerall to spend half their call glorifying South African Marxism, or preaching on child rearing instead of talking X's & O's.. but here we are now.
    I hope that a dude with resources will eventually start his own sports media outlet, and create a professional paradigm there w/no political commentary :noidea:

    Right on both points. There's too much time to fill so they grab a hot topic and beat it to death. I swear it makes me ill to switch to one of the local sports stations and they are still going on about Rice and Peterson.

    As for an "infiltration" by leftists into sports, that has been going on a long time. I noticed just recently two popular commenters picked up on it.

    Steve Sailer:
    Why Are the Dumber Sportswriters So Liberal?
    The mass of not very bright sportswriters has been true believers in liberal dogmas for maybe four decades. I can recall the sports media’s crusade to get George Allen (father of the future Republican Senator) fired as coach of the Washington Redskins in the mid-1970s, which was very much a self-conscious junior varsity repeat of Woodward-Bernstein’s crusade to overthrow Richard Nixon: If the Washington Post news section could take down the President, then the Washington Post sports section should take down the Redskins’ coach, who reminded them of Nixon for complicated 1970s reasons.

    and Rush Limbaugh:
    CALLER: Thank you, Rush. I was looking at the failure of left-wing talk radio and the failure of left-wing media, which includes MSNBC, CNN, and the New York Times. And what I've discovered here is that left-wing media has taken over sports talk and sports talk radio.


    RUSH: Yeah, that's exactly right. I think you are on to something profound there.

    CALLER: And, unfortunately, the people that listen to it are kind of unaware.


    RUSH: Oh, they don't think it's politics. It's sports. You're exactly right. That's it in a nutshell. They don't think it's possible. It's like low-information don't think Democrats are in politics. The Republicans are politics. They're the bad guys. They're the ones standing in the way of progress.


    RUSH: Folks, he may be exaggerating a bit there to make a point, but Scott is on to the way this is playing out. See, the secret in this is that the sports talk audience thinks that they are, "I don't like talk radio. I don't like politics." And they are hip deep in left-wing politics. And it's not just sports talk radio anymore. It's television. It's television sports. I've been trying to tell people as long as I've been aware of it that the sports Drive-Bys, if it's possible, are more liberal than their news Drive-By brothers and sisters. It is a stunning reality when you run up against some of them, when they're guests on CNN or when they're guests on MSNBC, it's stunning.

    The Associated Press polled 94 editors to determine 2014's top 'sports' stories..

    The winner was the NFL's domestic abuse scandals. Runner-up was Donald Sterling's private argument.
    This poll, in my mind, is an open admission from the sports media that they are consumed with social issues, and their opportunities for subsequent cultural Marxist commentary and propaganda, over impartial sports reporting.

    It's completely dishonest @ this point, to dismiss critics & accusers of a Liberal media as paranoid.

    Yes, it's leftist social issues first and the leftist distortion of sports second.

    Unfortunately, this is the idiocy that passes as halftime analysis..

    [video=youtube;9xb1YaW-SOk]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9xb1YaW-SOk[/video]

    Networks shouldn't even bother with the pretense of suits and ties anymore.. In an honest acknowledgement that this is free money, they should let their expert analysts just come to work in wife beaters, and football jerseys, etc.

    Beyond the awful NYP website with its woke communist advertising for mega corp goodness that was a bit informative that at least one 'mainstream" gimp has issues with our brave new world of sports and the media PR clowns. This week we went to get some wings at Hooters and the only thing I could see was NBA basketball, all I can say is that the author you link to should be glad he does not have to cover that. I thought most NFL games were crap this year, but OMG that is a horrible product.

    My money is on pretty much a fail, they are two years too late. As I wrote on another thread blacks are as popular as head lice with white and jewish progs, never mind the other coloreds. If the progs can't use them to skim off them or use them electorally blacks are at best useless drags. Point being the leftist coalition comes together to hate White men other than that they hate one another so this Black Supremacy Sports venture is DOA, no audience and half the blacks that might comprise its audience will be going to click bait sports sites with the usual busty white chicks as the bait. And none of the masked up twinks that troll twitter will even spend a second on a sports site.
