When the NHL season started it looked promising…It looked like the NHL were not going to go “woke,” and would become the nation’s new national past time.
But sadly, that didn’t happen.
Like all other sports franchises, the NHL ‘got woke’ and now they’re going broke.

The owner of the Dallas Stars says that since they started supporting Marxist organization “Black Lives Matter,” they’re losing support and customers.
Season ticket holders are cutting ties.
Per CEO Brad Alberts, the Dallas Stars have lost both individual and company accounts over the team’s participation in these protests in the name of Black Lives Matter.
But Alberts plans to “stay woke.” He won’t change his views on BLM even though he’s losing business – he’s even doubling down on plans to keep pushing for societal equality and justice for the Black community.
We’ll see how that works out for him…
From Daily Wire
According to a report, the president and CEO of the NHL’s Dallas Stars said the team has lost a number of season ticket holders because of the team’s support of Black Lives Matter and protests dealing with race.
Brad Alberts stated, “But we/I stand by our organization’s commitment and support our players 100% to express their views,” as the Dallas News reported.
On Thursday, at a news conference the NHL held in Edmonton with members of the Stars, Colorado Avalanche, Vegas Golden Knights and Vancouver Canuck, Jason Dickinson of the Stars spoke for the team with his teammates behind him. He said, “We were able to start a good conversation among our team stemming from that moment. That’s exactly what we wanted. We wanted to get the conversation going, not only amongst ourselves, but amongst the country and the world.”
Stars interim coach Rick Bowness added, “We’re all against the social injustice and racial discrimination that’s going on around the world. If our players think that this is the best way that they can support that, then they have our full support and we are proud of the stance that they have taken.”
I’ll tell you what – the one good thing that’s come of all this BLM Marxist garbage, is that Americans are learning that they can have amazing lives without sports.
Because these sports teams have zero respect for their fans.
Sports was the one escape from politics, but now, it’s just as bad as watching CNN.
If you haven’t cut the cord, please consider doing so. If we don’t take a stand and stop supporting the people who hate us and treat us poorly, it’ll never end.
