It seems that American football is becoming less and less relevant.

#15 I wonder if Snyder has done a cost benefit analysis on how much revenue he salvages in his retention of some woke corporate sponsors and the massive decline in viewership by those like me who were lifelong fans turned off by the kneeling and now, disgusted by cowardly kowtowing to the cultural revolution destroying our nation.

#22 They need to get ahead of the SJW curve and create a name that can't be offensive (or if it is the NFL is doomed). Something exciting like the

#23 Your nativist naming provokes us!
It's time for systemic refocus
Where urban meets ermine.
Invertebrate vermin,
I give you the Washington Wokusts.

#24 The Wokust wuvs natuwal gwass
And breaks all available glass,
Sets fire to the stands,
Then at halftime demands
That the fans kiss his red and black ass.

#27 ^ Half a point per hundred years? Funny, Mussolini don't sound jooish. Stingy bugger.

New rivalry: Cheer as the Ants
Take knees in their trans-friendly pants!
Now the Ants go to work
While the Hoppas, uh, twerk,
And their hundreds of fans look askance.

#28 Martinus of Tours was a bloke
Who donated half of his cloak,
So they made him a saint.
His colonial taint
Would prevent that today. So not woke.
"And he only gave half?" "What a joke."
