NFL Misses Field Goal on Mexico

NFL Disses Mexico for England

NFL hires former English soccer exec to help with international growth. Opps!

Mexico City NFL Game-10-02-05

NFL Game in Mexico City 2005

To help grow the American brand of football beyond American borders, the NFL is turning to an expert in the other kind of football. Brian Mawhinney, who served for seven years as chair of the Football League, will serve as a special advisor to NFL International. The Football League consists of the 72 teams below the Premier League in England.

A former member of Parliament (not the musical group), Mawhinney could help lay the foundation for an expanded presence of the league in England, possibly culminating in the full-time arrival of the London Shaguars.

For now, Mawhinney says that American football is “developing impressively in this country and I look forward to aiding that process.”

Clearly and for reasons unknown, the NFL has decided that England is the market they want and Mexico is NOT. Why? This makes no cents.

Mexico hold’s the 2nd highest regular season game attendence in history when the Arizona Cardinals played the San Francisco 49ers in 2005, at the time a record, at Aztec Stadium in Mexico City.  (# 1 was Cowboy Home Game in 2009).  And this game was with not so competitive showcase of two teams at the bottom of the league.  If I remembers correctly, I think they were actuall the 2 worst teams in the league that season.  So it was NOT exactly a blockbuster matchup.  I can’t imagine the attendance if it was a competive relevant game.  It could have been 150,000 people! It did NOT matter, It was the best of American modern culture and they were finally part of it!  Mexicans were so pumped they were doing the wave 40 minutes before kick0ff.  I know, I was there!  It was amazing.

Now considering the above and with over 110 million people in Mexico, the size of the market just make economic cents.  After all, Mexico is by far the USA’s largest neighbor. 

Furthermore, add in the long history of supporting the NFL since the days of the 70s Steelers when they won the hearts of Mexican sports fans and subsequent hysteria for the Dallas Cowboys in the 90s, why would the NFL bypass Mexico for England…. a cold far off land accross an ocean and non-friendly TV time zones? 

It’s weird.  I mean Monterrey, is just 2 hours by car from Texas?  How does this NOT make cents?   Not to mention, Mexico has a well developed College Football League system that plays on the level of Division II football.  I mean, it’s ripe for the NFL to get in there and develop. Does England have a built in farm system?  No!  What up people!  Get with it!

What’s Wrong with this Picture?

I really don’t know but my first guess is some sort of weird odd cultural “I don’t understand Mexico” thing.  Maybe the leaders of the NFL more understand the Anglo culture of their ancestual homeland?  I don’t think it’s racism but maybe it has more to do with a culture more understand in a language they recognize and know.

Yeah, I know, it’s old skool thinking but really, the market in the USA is changing fast and the hispanic population is exploding.  We must pay attention if we are going to compete right? 

Moreover, Mexico is fast becoming more like the USA with it’s younger growing population making noise in the world as most think tanks rate Mexico along with Brazil as one of the up and coming nation stars of the 21st Century.   In fact, English is the fastest growing 2nd language in Mexico with what seems to be half the friggin population speaking some form of English.  We need to get to know Mexico before its’ too late.  I mean, the young Mexicans are rolling in folks and they are North Americans, not Zimbaweeans!  They are directly our neighbors; our brothers. 

England, on the other hand, is getting an older population fast and it’s not a natural for growth.   It’s a hard place to travel across an ocean in a non-market friendly time zone. Its’ a bad demographic.  It makes limited cents.

So what is going on here?  Why is the NFL messing up on its marketing and demography?  Are they following the current xenophobic trend in the USA that has a weird incorrect stereotypical mis-conception of Mexico?  Who’s advising them? 

For one of sports greatest marketing machine mindsets, the NFL’s decision to go side ways instead of forwards is truly odd.

Support #altnews & keep Dark Politricks alive

Remember I told you over 5 years ago that they would be trying to shut down sites and YouTube channels that are not promoting the "Official" view. Well it's all happening now big time. Peoples Channels get no money from YouTube any more and Google is being fishy with their AdSense giving money for some clicks but not others. The time is here, it's not "Obama's Internet Cut Off Switch" it's "Trumps Sell Everyones Internet Dirty Laundry Garage Sale". This site must be on some list at GCHQ/NSA as my AdSense revenue which I rely on has gone down by a third. Either people are not helping out by visiting sponsors sanymore or I am being blackballed like many YouTube sites.

It's not just Google/YouTube defunding altenative chanels (mine was shut), but Facebook is also removing content, shutting pages, profiles and groups and removing funds from #altnews that way as well. I was recently kicked off FB and had a page "unpublished" with no reason given. If you don't know already all Facebooks Private Messages and Secret Groups are still analysed and checked for words related to drugs, sex, war etc against their own TOS. Personally I know there are undercover Irish police moving from group to group cloning peoples accounts and getting people booted. Worse than that I know some people in prison now for the content they had on their "secret private group". Use Telegrams secret chat mode to chat on, or if you prefer Wickr. If you really need to, buy a dumb phone with nothing for the NSA/GCHQ to hack into. Ensure it has no GPS tracking on it and that the battery can be removed. These are usually built for old people to get used to technology storing only a set of numbers to call. However they have no games, applications to install or other ways people can exploit the computer tracking device you carry round with you most of the day - your smart phone. If you are paranoid ensure that you can remove the battery when travelling around and do so to prevent GPS tracking or phone mast triangulation. Even with your phone in Flight mode or turned off, it can be turned on remotely and any features like front or back cameras, microphones and keylogging software can be installed to trace you.

So if your not supporting this site already which brings you news from the Left to the Right (really the same war mongering rubbish) then I could REALLY do with some..

Even if it's just £5 or tick the monthly subscription box and throw a few pound my way each month, it will be much appreciated. Read on to find out why.


Any support to keep this site would be appreciated. You could set up a monthly subscription for £2 like some people do or you could pay a one off donation as a gift.
I am not asking you to pay me for other people's articles, this is a clearing house as well as place to put my own views out into the world. I am asking for help to write more articles like my recent false flag gas attack to get WWIII started in Syria, and Trump away from Putin. Hopefully a few missiles won't mean a WikiLeaks release of that infamous video Trump apparently made in a Russian bedroom with Prostitutes. Also please note that this article was written just an hour after the papers came out, and I always come back and update them.

If you want to read JUST my own articles then use the top menu I have written hundreds of articles for this site and I host numerous amounts of material that has seen me the victim of hacks, DOS plus I have been kicked off multiple hosting companies, free blogging sites, and I have even had threats to cease and desist from the US armed forces. Therefore I have to pay for my own server which is NOT cheap. The more people who read these article on this site the more it costs me so some support would be much appreciated.

I have backups of removed reports shown, then taken down after pressure, that show collusion between nations and the media. I have the full redacted 28/29 pages from the 9.11 commission on the site which seems to have been forgotten about as we help Saudi Arabia bomb Yemeni kids hiding in the rubble with white phosphorus, an illegal weaapon. One that the Israeli's even used when they bombed the UN compound in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead. We complain about Syrian troops (US Controlled ISIS) using chemical weapons to kill "beautiful babies". I suppose all those babies we kill in Iraq, Yemen, Somalia and Syria are just not beautiful enough for Trumps beautiful baby ratio. Plus we kill about 100 times as many as ISIS or the Syrian army have managed by a factor of about 1000 to 1.

I also have a backup of the FOX News series that looked into Israeli connections to 9.11. Obviously FOX removed that as soon as AIPAC, ADL and the rest of the Hasbra brigade protested.

I also have a copy of the the original Liberal Democrats Freedom Bill which was quickly and quietly removed from their site once they enacted and replaced with some watered down rubbish instead once they got into power. No change to police tactics, protesting or our unfair extradition treaty with the USA but we did get a stop to being clamped on private land instead of the mny great ideas in the original.

So ANY support to keep this site running would be much appreciated! I don't have much money after leaving my job and it is a choice between shutting the server or selling the domain or paying a lot of money just so I can show this material.

Material like the FSB Bombings that put Putin in power or the Google no 1 spot when you search for protecting yourself from UK Police with "how to give a no comment interview". If you see any adverts that interest you then please visit them as it helps me without you even needing to give me any money. A few clicks per visit is all it takes to help keep the servers running and tag any tweets with alternative news from the mainstream with the #altnews hashtag I created to keep it alive!

However if you don't want to use the very obvious and cost free ways (to you) to help the site and keep me writing for it then please consider making a small donation. Especially if you have a few quid sitting in your PayPal account doing nothing useful. Why not do a monthly subscription for less money instead. Will you really notice £5 a month?
