    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?

    I don't care what they do, I will still watch the Chiefs.

    The NFL is pretty greedy, but you have to love your team!

    That's a shame. I like my team too, but I won't let the NFL force me and my nation into this bi-lingual nonsense. Especially when anyone watching CBS, FOX, NBC or ESPN already speaks and understands english. To me it's a slap in the face and racist.

    Hey guy I'm not racist.

    Would it hurt you to learn a new language?

    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?

    it is headed towards the end of the USA as it once was, and is turning more into a socialist state every day. Keep on giving up your freedoms people. Nah, im not talking about wire tapping. Big deal. Im talking about government regulations, accomidating your lives for global warming nonsense, paying for your neighbors health care, being taxed for "emmisions" you are putting into the air. some crazy stuff.

    Well that is a pretty biased opinion about the USA.

    We used to be about people loving us because of our freedoms. They are disappearing at an alarming rate in my opinion.

    Seriously what is the deal with Spanish?

    It's not that hard to learn.

    Have an open mind.

    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.

    The 49ers own my heart, but the Chiefs will always hold a better than neutral spot for giving my favorite player a place to leave with grace...

    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.

    Just my opinion, you live here, you work here, you receive benefits here, Then learn to speak English. I am tired of this in our nation. We need to declare that if you want to live here and want citizenship, you must first learn basic English.
