Fans booed the players in the Kansas City – Texas NFL game [a week or so back – Ed]. Players, announcers, coaches and owners insist the fans are wrong. No live anthem, anti-racism messages on the scoreboard, players kneeling instead of standing for the flag, banning fans from cheering with the tomahawk chop and war paint, NFL allowing “victim” names on helmets . . . it’s all justified and necessary and the fans should just get over it.
The NFL is already worried about losing billions of dollars if the fans can’t attend because of Covid. But what happens if the fans won’t attend because they’re insulted?
What’s that saying again? The customer is always . . . racist? The customer is always . . . wrong? The customer is always . . . it’ll come to me. It’s on the tip of my tongue. Gimme a minute.
The customer, whatever their politics, is always conservative – at least when it comes to spending their entertainment dollar.
Which the NFL is.
Well, used to be.
