In a move unlike anything seen from a major American sports league, the league will offer the money in hopes that it will end the ratings-killing protest movement begun by Colin Kaepernick in the preseason of 2016.
According to ESPN:
The NFL’s multifaceted offer earmarks at least $89 million over a seven-year period for both national and local projects, according to documents reviewed by ESPN. On the national level, owners this year will allocate $5 million, with their commitment growing annually and maxing out at $12 million per year from 2021 through 2023. At the local level, owners will put up $250,000 annually and expect players to match that amount, totaling $500,000 for each team. Players and owners can exceed that amount if they choose, with no matching requirement. In addition, there would be other fundraising opportunities, including telethons and auctions of jerseys worn in games.
If the players approve their end of the deal, a vote on the appropriation of the money could come as early as March. Commissioner Roger Goodell is believed to have the support of the owners to proceed with the deal.
As far as how the money would be distributed, ESPN reports:
National funding would be allocated accordingly: 25 percent to the United Negro College Fund, 25 percent to Dream Corps and 50 percent to the Players Coalition, which has filed 501(c)(3) and 501(c)(4) paperwork for nonprofit status as a fiscally sponsored project. This week, the coalition hired the Hopewell Fund to oversee and advise the group, which hopes to work with grassroots and nonprofit organizations in its areas of focus.
Under the proposal, money at both the national and local level would provide grants for nonprofit organizations focused on law enforcement and community relations, criminal justice reform and education reform.
A working group of five players, five owners (or owners’ representatives) and two NFL staff members would help identify future initiatives to pursue.
There are major concerns with several of these groups that are earmarked to receive NFL dollars. The Dream Corps website reads like a Van Jones personal publicity site. The once-avowed communist and current CNN commentator appears on a couple different pages of the site, including a page which promotes Jones’s new book.
The group also supports an initiative called Green For All, which has the goal to, “build an inclusive green economy strong enough to lift people out of poverty.
“Our goal is to make sure people of color have a place and a voice in the climate movement. That our neighborhoods are strong, resilient, and healthy. That as the clean energy economy grows, it brings jobs and opportunities to our communities. ”
The other gigantic concern here is the 50 percent of funds earmarked for the Players Coalition. The money spent by this group will probably, at least in some significant measure, mirror the spending pattern of the NFL Players Association and how they’ve spent their money, which should serve as a source of great concern for all.
Back in October, tax documents revealed by conservative watchdog group 2ndVote showed how the NFLPA liberally (figuratively and literally) distributed funds to groups associated with George Soros.
From that report, we learned, “In 2013 and 2015, the NFLPA also contributed to the AFL-CIO’s community affiliate, Working America. This group, according to Open Secrets, contributed $1 million to defeat President Trump during the 2016 election. However, the group’s anti-Trump activities were not limited to the election. According to the Washington Times, ‘“Working America has since mobilized against the Republican tax-cut framework, denouncing it as the ‘Trump tax scam.’”
In addition we learned that, “In tax documents recently released by 2ndVote, a conservative watchdog group, we learn that the NFL Players Association (NFLPA) made a donation of $5,000 in 2015 to the Center for Community Change Action, a George Soros funded and adamantly anti-Trump organization.”
It’s important to note that these instances barely scratched the surface of all the left-wing activist groups that had received funds from the NFLPA. Why would any of that change with considerably larger amounts of money given to activist players who are essentially ransoming the national anthem?
The NFL’s surrender on the national anthem protests is turning out to be a very costly venture, both in terms of money and our country.

The owners could just simply fire any players that are protesting on company time, and do some heavy recruiting to get new players that know better than to cause your business to lose money.
They could, but they won’t.
They fear the media backlash much more then they fear offending the people who pay for the tickets and watch on TV.
The thing I don’t understand is why even worry about media backlash if you’re giving your customers what they want?
Because most of these guys have other businesses that can be boycotted. And also, as “gorf” stated, most of them are SJWs themselves.
How would you feel about firing a bunch of big, black dudes on steroids who beat their wives and run pit-bull rings for fun?
The owners are SJW leftists themselves, mate. They won’t fire shit.
The elderly ones like George Bush are usually members of some piece-of-shit secret society, like the Freemasons.
Understand something my friend anyone who does not support any SJW movement specially if your a famous athlete or star will be crucified by the media and other athletes or stars ruining their careers,business and anything they accomplished, there you have Kaepernick a unemployed SJW who was not even a good QB is the “citizen of the year”
They could indeed, but it would be bad for business. I could easily see all the players turning on said owner and league if necessary. And then a Nationwide Boycott by people of color would definitely ensue. These guys (owners) are Billionaires and not fools for good reason.
Society doesn’t need sports and if the owners gave a rats ass, they should sell out of their holding, and disband their companies, and put all these useless SJW crybabies on the streets where they will promptly kill each other off. Now that WOULD be REAL entertainment value. none of these “athletes” have the business acumen to save their earnings now to make it through retirement and death. they will be broke in 5 years or less, likely dead as they get bored and get involved in more crimes that will get them capped. Good riddance too. Society can do without the tedious expensive waste of time non bloodletting bread and circus acts in the modern day coliseums. Bring back real blood sport, that’s where the money is, and if the athletes are worth a sh*t, they will jump on board and do the dance for survival to cheering crowds, and be glad they really AREN’T slaves. Is not like the National Felons League and the other criminal game cartels are going to magically change their nature. It will be win win win for all citizens and non citizens alike.
The owners are to blame, not the monkeys. Monkeys only dance to the music.
Passive aggressive anti-white message. The message is clear: white people suck.
You would have to be extremely naive to think throwing money at the problem will satisfy these idiots. Terrorists are never satisfied, they’re insatiable and they will not be satisfied until they have white slaves. That’s fine, I will continue to laugh in their face.
Boycott til bankrupt.
“Terrorists are never satisfied, they’re insatiable and they will not be satisfied until they have white slaves.”
I’m afraid it’s far worse than that. When the last white person dies, they (these terrorists) will find their pain doesn’t die. It will continue growing. They will turn on each other killing each other until they’ve killed themselves off.
I would say well played to the elite, but I suspect their guards will turn on them.
Have you not read any of these ROF articles? The White Man has dominion over the entire world. Most of its wealth and weaponry. Slaves? Seriously
BOYCOTT UNTO BANKRUPTCY!!!!
I stopped watching this crap at least 15 years ago…
I agree with you. Regardless of these protests, a man shouldn’t waste time on watching sport events.
The “real” Mr Kersey? From England?
I thought that guy had morphed into Mohandas Ghandi these days…
Look, Slim, I have no problem with you.
I may disagree with you on a couple of things. However, unlike many commenters you are quiet honest about yourself and you are not hostile.
@ Mr. Kersey
Got it. Understood and appreciate that.
But some of those guys are pretty decent, IMO. Seems to me they were are just joking around. But again, that is IMO. I am not lecturing you here. Just offering my opinion. Take care. Peace.
And people still watch that shit. What a bunch of ass-clown punks. Fuck the NFL. Fuck every one of those “playas” on da field.
I do love how stupid and short-sighted these black NFL fuckers are. They’re killing their future earnings, fame, glory and all that to become a meme. They stand (or kneel) for nothing except being disrespectful of the country their immigrant ancestors came to.
I would seriously love it if Muslim illegal immigrants started kneeling as well. That would be the icing on the cake of this whole charade.
Or wait, better yet, women who got on their knees for Harvey Weinsein to further their careers start kneeling in protest of getting on their knees for Harvey Weinstein.
The Flag means different things to different people period! When Police officers have grievence, they Boycott in front of the station. When Teachers have grievence, they Boycott in front of the school. It’s the American way.
Those “Black fuckers” would not be on that field, on the TV, earning above average pay if those who came before them simply wimped out like you suggest.
Your reply makes little to no sense. ‘Those “niggers” would not be on that field… if those who came before them simply wimped out.’
Who are the, “those who came before them?” If you mean their ancestors, then did those ancestors start and/or end the Civil War? Or were you talking further back than that? Were you talking about them oaring across the ocean from Africa? Or were you meaning more recently than that, MLK times? Where they started trying to sound intellectual by speaking like preachers, or putting on nerd glasses to look like Malcom X clones? Or what? I’m genuinely curious what you’re on about.
The 3-4 hours it takes to zombie through an NFL game is what you could spend doing building or working on your side gig.
Just watch a highlight reel of the damn game you sort of wanted to see. It will compress everything interesting that happened down to 5 minutes or less.
4 hours of masturbating does less damage than 4 hours watching the National Felons League stupidity. more fun too given you can drink and smoke as you wish at home….
NFL = “NO FANS LEFT” Keep Boycotting them.
Translation: The NFL despises YOU, its former fans.
NFL Screwing Military, Breast Cancer Charities To Pay Off Social Justice Movement
Haven’t watched the NFL since I was 15…too damn boring, you can feel life’s meaningful hours just draining away. Join me in a life spent completely ignoring all of this useless commercialized sports-ball crap, fellows!
This is a good reminder to not fall into complacence.
Thank you for a great article.
I completely agree!
Any time a sporting body focuses on anything but the actual playing and management of the season, it will suffer greatly. I don’t know how it works in the States, but if its like Australia, its started to include board members that don’t have any background in playing or managing sport. Instead they have been told to become more “diverse”, womens issues, ethnics, gays, whatever. The focus on the actual sport turns to shit.
Same principles are in action in western military bureaucracy, turning once mighty and effective forces into inefficient, limp wristed, faggot enablers, paying for sex changes of tranny soldiers, and maternity leave for females. Way to win a war, I think not.
Stop enabling these NFL turds, sack the trouble makers for breech of contract. Hire someone who is grateful.
$100 million to SJW causes? That’ll go over like a lead balloon among the average NFL ticket-buyer. If they were TRYING to kill the NFL, they couldn’t be doing a better job.
But considering how SJWs always double down, it’s only to be expected.
Voting with their feet ??? Do American, are becoming St Paul & see the light ??
It’s bloody time !
Motherfuck the NFL, forever.
Fuck college football, too.
Fuck all sports dominated by black racists.
SJW’s DON’T WATCH football. They go to the opera or a European art film.
The receivers will spend it on cocaine and coke-whores and a house or two.
I used to watch a ball sport of another kind religiously (soccer). I came to realize that I spent hundreds if not thousands of hours doing nothing good for myself while watching millionaires pass the ball around the pitch. Nowadays I only watch the must see clashes and often regret not doing something else with my precious time.
I watch the boxing matches but I don’t care about the social issues. Who gives a shit?
Mostly sports athletes make money for bookies and to some extent the mob.
We live in a world of fanboys and stans whose meaningless life is all wrapped up around some mediocre person who got lucky because he did one particularly thing well that society could be made to pay for whether that was Al Pacino playing gangsters or Rodman shooting threes or Jim Carrey making faces.
This is admirable that people from poor backgrounds can become millionaires but since they are not going to share it with you…who gives a shit.
The reality of people who live through other people who will never meet them and don’t give a shit about them and actually sneer at the public that bothers them is that these type of people have a miserable life.
If you are actually enjoying your life you do not give a shit about some Milwaukee Mulatto or whether he takes it up the ass before every game.
If we can blame Jews for anything, or admire them, it has been their capacity to create useless diversions that only Anglo-Saxon people and blacks are interested in. Asian-Americans and Indians whether in the US or UK only care about what benefits them and knowing people who will do something for them personally.
Same goes for Jews. You don’t see many Jews at a Football game unless they are bookies.
It is the Anglo who mindlessly follows the consumer patterns dictated by his owners-he is told to buy stale beer and sit on a bleacher, he does. He is told to buy the poster for some stupid movie that will be laughed at in 10 years like Men in Black and he does. He is told to care about this issue or that issue-he does.
This is why I worry when I read comments that suggest there is a real ‘cultural war’ going on in America.
It looks to me like the war is long over, they won.
This cash is to ‘appease’ a tiny number of players?
That’s so unintelligent it stopped me reading any more.
Just WHAT would the angry players do against all the owners?
This is not about appeasing a couple of dozen black players, it’s simply a part of the culture America has now become.
I hate it too.
Are there still any white cucks watching ni**erball? Wow they really are losers. So they spend money on watching ni**erball so NFL could give money to various SJW who hate White people. Oh and “players” also hate them. Modern sport is just a sedative for white man so he can direct his competitive warrior spirit into supporting “his” team. LOL
The NFL receives billions in tax dollars: http://dailysignal.com/2017/09/26/heres-much-money-nfl-rakes-taxpayers/
Defund those fuckers. 90% of the NFL teams play in stadiums paid for by the city! Fuck them.
Apparently they thought they needed more nails in the coffin.
The NFL should have kept its $100.000,000. I would have bought the league a $50 shovel to dig its own grave. RIP, cucks.
The dumb American cucks who watch the watered-down version of rugby called “football” somehow cannot connect that the (((TEMPLAR OWNERS)))- meaning 100% every single team in the USA is owned by them- are now draining HUNDREDS of MILLIONS of taxpayer and charitable dollars from the NFL before they pull the United States altogether. The Hopewell $100 million dollars mentioned in this article is pocket change when you add in all the No More, Head Injury, Breast Cancer and other FAKE Left Wing “social” campaigns. = “Advisors” like Arabella, the NVF Fund, League of Conservation Voters, The Gates, Clinton-Obama, Hewlett and Soros foundations drain taxpayer monies from the NFL by promoting fraudulent SJW causes and call you a racist if you dare to notice the rip-off. Overpaid negroes take a knee for FAKE martyr drug dealers even as they wear gay pink socks for charitable contributions that never arrive! – This NFL shit is NOT just societal de-masculinization via weak virtue-signaled hucksterism.. its a COMPLETE, systematic, and controlled divesting of American sports. You are being financially raped at the state level, not just the box office, and nobody even cares!
This is great news!
The nfl boycotters are developing new habits that dont include sportsball and they WONT be back, so this 100 mil wasted will NEVER be remade.
Boycott unto BANKRUPTCY!!!
Single black mamas have little negros out of wedlock that you the taxpayer support completely age 0 through 18. The little negro then gets a football scholarship to go play sports at a college, tax payer supported. (the dirty trick NCAA colleges use is that they really don’t give scholarship money to blacks. Since their negro athlete came from a single mama home and is a negro, they will get the negro free financial aid rather than waste scholarship money). So the negro goes to the NFL where all the simps and beta cucks pay his million dollar salary to play in a tax payer supported stadium all the while the negro marries a white woman and kneels at your national anthem disrespecting you, your fathers that died in wars, your military service, and your tax dollars. They get “free dis” and “free dat” all the way through life while you work your ass off for peanuts and pay for it all.
