Many former NFL stars, after starring on the professional gridiron, have gone on to star in Hollywood films.
If one has been following this particular series of blog posts, one has learned the art of acting and the world of sports are indeed synonymous. In order to become rich and famous in America, one must either have the good fortune of being born into a prominent family bloodline, or be willing to bargain what is perhaps the most precious commodity a human being possesses-their soul.
The following, one hopes, shall serve as a cautionary tale-of sorts. More likely, it shall serve as testament to the utter decadence and moral bankruptcy of those rich and powerful the masses allow to rule over them.
One pointed out in the introduction, it is not uncommon for stars of the professional football gridiron to move on to Hollywood after retirement, nor is it rare to observe some move on to satisfy ambitions in the political arena.
For those regular visitors still attempting to come to grips with the fact the NFL offers entertainment spectacles rather than legitimate sporting contests, perhaps this reiterated fact will serve in helping to illuminate those still struggling to comes to terms with the stark reality. The NFL is a six billion dollar business, and its ultimate responsibility is not to the season ticket holders, but to the corporate stockholders, who insist on seeing a profit annually recorded in their portfolio statements.
Collective bargaining power
Since the NFL legally possesses collective bargaining power, that means its thirty-two franchises, rather than existing designated as individual entities, are in fact recognized as one entity under the corporate umbrella of the National football league. Each team shares in the overall annual revenues, which means the owners, and their mainstream television network partners, have every interest in seeing the most popular teams and star players receive maximum visibility during prime time television viewing hours. Which ultimately means, television ratings, advertising revenues, and other accompanying revenue streams, collectively drive overall league profits.
NFL fans don’t matter, but only as a revenue source
It must be reiterated, that by virtue of legal ruling, the only thing NFL season ticket holding fans are guaranteed is a seat to witness a publicly presented entertainment spectacle, and nothing more. They are not, contrary to popular perception, guaranteed to witness a legitimate sporting contest between opposing contestants leading to a legitimate outcome.
The NFL doesn’t care about the fans, or, for that matter, the welfare of the contracted talent, they only make a genuine effort in producing forth the superficial impression that they do.
In truth, the concerns of the average fan, only come into consideration from the stockholders, as long as they are purchasing merchandise, and sitting on their couches glued to the television set, increasing the likelihood they will buy whatever goods are peddled on behalf of the corporate sponsors, who’ve spent millions placing ads into prime time network television slots to increase the visibility of their products.
The most prominent star players marketed by the league and signed to lucrative contracts, become valuable corporate asset properties, to not only the league franchises, but to the same corporate partners regularly buying prime advertising slots from the mainstream television networks.
They are, for all intents and purposes, by virtue of legal contract, properties of the NFL.
However, it never occurs to many, some of the star players may be acting under pseudonyms. Like any Hollywood actor signed under contract to a major motion picture studio, the pseudonym designated to that legal property must be surrendered when the terms and conditions of the contract have been exhausted. The actor and his agent may choose to renegotiate the contract, but if the terms and the conditions of the contract are not renegotiated and legally surrendered, and the actor and his or her agent decide to seek better terms and conditions with another competing studio, they must also surrender the pseudonym, since the legal party that offered the contract, also owns the name.
A prime example, would be popular NFL quarterback, and later ESPN football analyst Joe Theismann. To anyone paying attention, ESPN has, for several years, retained an exclusive contract with the NFL to broadcast a share of its slate of regular season games. After Theismann’s retirement from a 12 year (there it is again folks, 12, or 21 reversed=777, the masonic joker code) NFL gridiron career with the Washington Redskins, he was employed as an ESPN analyst and broadcaster. This meant, by virtue of the fact ESPN had an exclusive contract with the NFL-an exclusive agreement the NFL and ESPN recently agreed to renegotiate and retain for the 2017 professional gridiron season-Theismann was still legally able to retain the pseudonym his host actor was operating under.
Notably, Theismann matriculated at Notre Dame, a Jesuit established institution. For those familiar with the material discovered here at Newsspellcom.org, the Jesuits are a key component in the triad of global governance, in tandem with the Crown Temple bank, and the principality of Washington’s District of Columbia. The Jesuits, going back to the historical period of the Enlightenment, have not only been been responsible for the establishment of the American and world public school educational system, but also for the ingenious development of publicly presented theatrical productions to advance certain social and political agendas.
It is also noteworthy, that many NFL owners are not only members in good standing with the masonic orders, but have also been initiated into the Knights of Malta.
The NFL, therefore, has served as not only a diversionary public spectacle, but as an historic social change agent. The NFL’s long established partnerships with the Jesuit established United Way, American armed forces, and most recently, Code Pink’s allegedly non-profit cancer awareness campaigns, are all examples of how the league has been able to transcend the parameters of the world of sport, and step into the social arena to influence public social behaviors.
This is an intriguing subject, related to the concept of the actor based reality, that shall be detailed with greater depth, in an installment coming soon in the near future.
Though this conclusion may be classified as pure speculation, it could have been that while matriculating at Notre Dame, Theismann was recruited by his Jesuit masters to serve as someone could be utilized as a life long corporate asset, thereby smoothing the way for the future NFL star’s longevity while standing in the spotlight of public notoriety.
Unknown to many, Theismann has most recently and covertly dipped his toe into the political arena, operating under the pseudonym Joe Manchin. While his host actor was disguised in post-production with CGI masking, Manchin made an appearance at the Sandy Hook massacre crisis event, regurgitating gun legislation propaganda.
However, what gives Manchin away, as he attempts to badly perform in his role as the anti-second amendment congressional representative, are the physical mannerisms on display that are immediately recognizable as common to his host actor.
Time and again, the personal mannerisms demonstrated by an unskilled host actor starring in Homeland Security crisis preparedness drills, sold to the public as actual events, have proven to be the Achilles heals and obvious undoing that modern post-production tools of CGI masking and voice synthesis, though sophisticated techniques, simply cannot hide for any duration.
No matter how hard the media sorcerers try, folks, bad acting simply cannot be masked from the public.
