I don't sports, but I am sitting here in a waiting room being force fed ESPN, and the are fellating Obama on air.

Now I have always assumed sports was red blooded, beer drinking, blue collar America. I mean professional sports are a meritocracy where the best conquers all. Also it is pure capitalism with billions being paid for frivolity.

So why are the talking heads on a network dedicated to money and concussions sucking lib ballsack on air?

It's not the sports, it's who owns the networks they are aired on.

Pro sports are dominated by black athletes

to prove you're down with the struggle of the black man, you have to out liberal the other (white) guy.

those who are in sports media and have never played sports are there because they crave black dicks

ESPN probably due to being filled with journalists.

NFL is probably trying to appeal to young people who vote D overwhelmingly, and stadiums are all in left wing big cities, so they need the Ds in their pocket for favorable tax treatment and taxpayer dollars to build the things.

NO IT MOST CERTAINLY IS NOT.

These stadiums are most of the time paid by taxes, so then the government gets a vested interest and can push their agenda to a wide audience.

This is why I quit watching NASCAR, they pander to hipsters and women plus NASCAR itself caters to the Sponsors (dat $$$) who aren't in touch with the fanbase. I miss the technical parts of it enough to quit watching and cancel my paid subscriptions, plus I got tired of little Billy's politics and the Trailer Trash Wallaces. I just want to see racing, I couldn't give a fuck about the drama and forced "diversity".

yes.

This is the 'figure skating model'. Figure skating announcers used to be all about the technical aspects, and ratings were always low. Then in one olympics in IIRC the 90s they invested money to figure out how to make it more popular. They did this whole 'tell as story about the people and the adversity they overcame'.

It was much more successful than expected, ratings were through the roof. Gradually other sports started to adopt the same model.

I get your point, but I think you are grossly over-stating the stats.

There isn't a single county in all of California where the median household income is even half of that.
The overall college attainment rate for California is still below 40%.
The obesity rate for the state is just under 25%.

Hard to believe that 90% of the "sports fanbase" would be so out of line with the rest of the population.
