Description

Redspin Sports looks at the connections between the U.S. sports industry & the political, social & economic forces that sustain U.S. imperialism, both at home and abroad.

We examine the history of activist athletes and this generation's reemergence of athlete activism, the history of American football through a critical class struggle lens, and the politics & labor dynamics that characterize the modern pro sports leagues. Highlighting the connections between billionaire team owners, the permanent war state, real estate gentrifiers and slum lords, private prisons, education privatization, police militarization & much more; all of which are critical to fully understanding the social and political forces that define our time.

Part II picks up where we leave off at the end of Part I; discussing the roots of the ahistorical connection so many white Southerners make in believing that the (Catholic NOT Protestant) Scottish Highlanders, who were defeated at Culloden in 1745, were somehow the antecedent of antebellum proto-Confederate culture & society.https://youtu.be/pV4NmstF0CICredit (above link): Trailer of Al Davis & Pete Rozelle ESPN 30 for 30 film (2021).John recounts his memories of the December 23rd, 1972 AFC Divisional Round playoff game between the Oakland Raiders and Pittsburgh Steelers from Three Rivers Stadium in Pittsburgh; this is the game either famously or infamously -depending on your allegiance- known as "the Immaculate Reception."
