on the name change, i don't care. I think on the surface, redskin seems pretty duragatory. sure there are reservation schools that call themselves the redskins, but its kind of like that N word thing.
The target market of the NBA isn't a bunch of old and middle-aged white guys who worship Trump and think the black lives matter movement is terrorism.
My biggest beef is the over politicization of sports. nba courts and being able to put invidiual social messages on jerseys is going to end badly for these leagues. I think people have had 4 months of sports being taken away from them and they survived. I think the leagues think we need them waaay more than we actually do and my guess is people will tune out. The leagues will just chalk it up to the weirdness of the season (shortened, modified rules, etc etc) but they'll be mistaken. It will come back eventualy but initially it will be a bloodletting.
oh yes it is. look up in the stands. its middle aged white people en mass. viewership skews minority but old middle aged white guys are still a good chunk of their fan base. They aren't heavily targeted for sure but outside of communist china who'll they'll bend over backwards for, its a very important demographic of wealth they need.
For football its a very heavy demographic targeted.
If these leagues factor that into to revenues and realize they are going to lose money on the deal and are ok with that have at it. thats what makes the US great. eventually you have to pay the piper and my guess they won't be ok with it.
