    Default Footbal In Spanish.. Will You Watch?


    0 Not allowed!
    To celebrate "Hispanic Heritage Month" The NFL is forcing their affiliates to play spanish language ads, have spanish language singers and refer to Football as "Futbol Americano"

    The network doesn't seem to care that 100% of their audience speaks and understands english and instead is trying to push their own website www.nflatino.com without giving care to the rest of their audience.

    I for one will quit watching football for the next month. What will you do?

    Timsat...please don't misunderstand my comment about Fox News last week as an argument to your positions...I suspect we agree on more things than not, I just find most TV news sources to be biased and low on information, in one form or another. I tend to spend more time researching for news info on a few blog sites and a couple of radio programs that I prefer.

    I would say new thread for "illegals & racists". I have lots to say there, but it's not related to the CHIEFS and that's all I care about today!

    Let's focus on the football / NFL here....

    just my opinion....




    And realistically, I doubt too many on the board on game day after the first win care to hear about racists theories...

    ok sorry, i am big into politics...ill try and settle down and keep it football.

    I think all political discussions between open-minded people are good. Just not today.

    You can only have one favorite team. There are no "second favorites".

    I won't quit watching the Chiefs but I do do think it's crap that I have to listen to Spansih when I live in the USA. Where is American Heritage month at?

    Almost every other nation teaches english to their students.

    We could use a little more relations with our international brethren.

    I don't think we all need to learn spanish but it's not the end of the USA, is it?
    Who cares what other countries do? There are multiple reasons why this is wrong:

    1. Foreign language tv and radio stations would never broadcast anything in English, yet we english speakers must be forced to learn a new language to accomodate one group of people?

    2. The USA is a nation built by Chinese, Africans, Arabics, Indians (native and East), Japanese, French, German, Polish, Hispanic, Irish, Russian, Jewish etc..... And yet corporate America has sliced us into two groups. English speaking vs. Spanish.

    3. Hispanic Heritage month celebrates leaders like those who fought at the Alamo and Cesar Chavez. They all fought to break away from Spain / Mexico and all spoke English. We do a dis service to their memories by forcing Spanish upon an English speaking nation.

    4. There are millions of Hispanics who do not speak Spanish at all. I work closely with 8 hispanics and only one of them knows any spanish at all.

    5. I see nothing wrong with people learning a new language, but being forced to learn that language so you can watch TV programming just so the NFL and GE/NBC can pander to "the fastest growing demographic" is a crock of crap and I will not stand for it.

    6. NBC owns Telemundo, they could easily have simulcast on the two stations. Spanish on Telemundo and English on NBC. People watching NBC ALREADY KNOW ENGLISH. This is a clear cut racist act to build programming for only one race on a National network.
