Attendance numbers all around sports, especially college sports, have seen a rapid decline over recent years. Mizzou has sadly been no exception.
Even after a hefty upgrade to Memorial Stadium, which reduced overall seat capacity by roughly a couple thousand, Mizzou has been unable to fill the stadium and produce a profitable calendar year, and it’s starting to become a trend.
So, just like any other situation where you’re wanting to figure out the cause and solution, people have blindly applied blame to everything, from the cost of the games to the fact a team isn’t playing for a championship every season.
But none of these claims hold any merit and I can say that with confidence because there are no examples or data points that show anything to support it, no predeceasing case. Not across the board on this level.
You know, evidence.
However, looking at the central point of what’s caused the most societal degradation, liberalism has been at the forefront of every unnecessary uprising that’s happened in the 20th Century up to now.
From the Black Lives Matter (which cares nothing about black lives, only complicity with neo-Marxism) movement to these indoctrinating feminist groups and instructors that seem to be promoted on every college campus in America, liberalism is the obvious social mechanism being used by higher elites to install Communism, which is liberalism.
And that’s very hard to refute when you see who funds these groups corporately.
So then the question is, is it possible—because trust and believe no writer will even entertain this possibility—that the rise of liberalism in society has caused a dislike for sports and we’re simply seeing the product of that social mentality?
I’ve brought the subject idea up a few times to various writers, and it’s always met with an immediately defensive attitude. Expected, but they certainly can’t offer up a structured defense, because there isn’t one that exists.
Why? Well that’s the point of this article.
The feminist movement didn’t necessarily make sports less popular, in fact you could even argue its helped propel women’s sports at nearly every age level. The homosexual movement of the 90’s and 2000’s sought to view sports as an unfamiliar and unnecessary form of entertainment, but even that never had a sweeping overall negative impact on how most people viewed sports.
But rooted out of the combination of both of these neo-Marxist groups came an ideology, or more of a tagline, to represent their disdain for the Christian white male: “toxic masculinity.”
While a few definitions entail things that are utter common sense like, “domestic assault is toxic masculinity,” the outline for the cause reads like a pledge to feminism. Condemning anything feminine is described as toxic masculinity. So you know…can’t criticize it or you’re guilty. Sounds like another kind of policy.
But along with both groups embracing this social stance has come new evaluations. Sports is now viewed through the judgement of toxic masculinity as something barbaric. With C.T.E. cases gaining so much attention and understanding, it’s helping propel a stigma that sports is a violent showcase that’s enjoyed by a lot of non-leftists.
The interest is lost, because not only do these kids not relate to sports, but they refuse to support an industry they essentially see as being enjoyed by homophobes and Christians.
As this becomes more of a gripping movement, expect attendance numbers to keep tanking. Mizzou, or any other team struggling financially right now, is going to need to enjoy some success that equates to dollars, there’s no other way to put it. Winning is the only recipe that can undo this destructive trend.
You may not like Obnoxious Mizzou Fan, but he actually didn’t vote for Trump, so take that accusation to Twitter, where you can tell him all about it after you follow him.
