Massive Layoff’s Just Hit NFL After Veterans Day Fiasco That Isn’t Over Yet And Its Bad

The whole National Football League is suffering because the players decided to kneel during the anthem.

They probably have reached their all-time low after the fans decided to boycott.

Recently, even ESPN also suffered.

According to M Political, Sports Illustrated’s reporters received several reports that indicated that ESPN is about to lay off over 100 of their staffers. They are targeting the business personnel, executives, producers, as well as technology and digitalized staffers.

Sports Illustrated reported: “In Oct. 2015 the company laid off roughly 300 employees, about 4-5% of its workforce—a particularly brutal act of gutting given the long tenures of many of those who were cut. Many of those employees helped build the foundation of ESPN and had given their professional life to the company.

In April this year, ESPN dismissed more than 100 journalists and on-air personalities. The firm said: “A necessary component of managing change involves constantly evaluating how we best utilize all of our resources, and that sometimes involves difficult decisions.” The households from 2011 have dropped from 100.13 million to an approximated 87.5 million households today.

They are planning to start their program at the end of  November or the start of December. The layoffs were firstly announced by Michael McCarthy of Sporting News a few months ago.

The Free Beacon reported: “The network has suffered from steep expenditures on broadcasting deals in tandem with a reduced subscriber base, even as it has made a series of public missteps.

One public relations challenge came when “SportsCenter” host Jemele Hill called President Donald Trump a white supremacist on Twitter and then called for a boycott of Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones’ advertisers. ESPN suspended her for twice violating company social media policy, and Trump publicly mocked the network for its ratings.

Executive decisions have also harmed the network’s image. Examples include the rapid canceling of a partnership with Barstool Sports and the controversial removal of an Asian-American announcer from a University of Virginia football game over his name’s similarity to Confederate Gen. Robert E. Lee. Rumors of layoffs surfaced in October, when Sporting News reported that 40 to 60 positions would be eliminated.

Ironically, the information came right after Veterans Day. The American people, especially the military veterans are tired to watch the disrespectful players. That’s why the league is suffering significantly.

    waiting to read the stories of owners cutting ties with players due to loss of income in their investments in a team trying to cut their losses as well. With that said, where will these overpaid players go? they might try to start their own league, but who’s going to watch a bunch of disrespectful idiots on the field? I’d rather watch a short script like those we used to receive in ROTC from VN back in the 60s. No disrespecting the country symbols there.

    It is the kneeling players that need to get the axe, not the support staff of sports channels. Get rid of those kneeling idiot traitors once and for all. Let’s play ball again.

    As a US Army veteran and American football fan, I am very disappointed by the stance that the NFL has taken – once again caving into their over-paid athletes who want to use the NFL and their TV viewership as a podium to espouse how Blacks are discriminated against by police officers. Total BS – 97% of all Blacks who are murdered are murdered by other Blacks. These NFL chumps should spend their millions on inner-city Black programs designed to prevent gangs and otherwise prevent the very violence that has caused so many Blacks to die (mostly at their own hands – less than 1% die at the hands of police officers, not all of whom by any stretch are White).
