The NFL has been on the decline for years now as more Americans are turned off by its embrace of Black Lives Matter.
But their decline could get a whole lot worse after this.
And what Brett Favre just claimed could be the end of the NFL as we know it.
On any given Sunday in the fall, cities and towns used to come to a standstill with NFL games airing on television screens in nearly every home.
Football in the ‘70s, ‘80s, and ‘90s was unlike anything else.
#NFL blast from the 70s past. I think every hit in this promo video would be a flag in today’s NFL 💥 @sigg20 @Ol_TimeFootball @VintageBrowns @NFL_Journal

The fans were insane.
The players were characters as large as anyone at the time.
And the games in the NFL were actually fun to watch.
But that all changed when the NFL decided to embrace the Black Lives Matter narrative.
Many fans had enough of the woke politics being shoved down their throats by the NFL and decided to change the channel.
And as a result the NFL has been hitting all-time lows in viewership.
But what Brett Favre said could be the final nail in the coffin for the NFL.
The nineteen-year NFL veteran and fan favorite made a PSA video trying to convince parents to not let their kids play tackle football until they are in high school.
It’s a PSA you have to see to believe:
In an interview with TODAY, Favre previously stated that, “If they [his grandchildren] choose to play, I will support them, but I’m not going to encourage them in any way to play. That surprises a lot of people, but I’m just fearful of what concussions can do,” Favre explained. “And it only takes one. Maybe I have had a thousand . . . It’s just too risky. I’m not going to encourage them to play until there’s a treatment.”
The NFL already suffers from pansy-style play.
Anyone who actually delivers a good hit these days is flagged or even thrown out of the game.
If parents listen to Favre, the NFL might not exist as players will be even more of wimps then they already are and even fewer people will tune in to watch the games.
