Press hype is dead wrong on Sports. Many people have said that sports is equally to society as part of population and trends. Wrong. wrong. wrong. First, look at stats, 15% of America is black. Yet, the stats on sports are overwhelmingly not 15% black - blacks have majority in pro sports ranks. I think 65% of NBA, 60% of NFL, etc. Why? BeEcause naturally African-Americans are superior in athtletics like African-Americans are superior in music, film, all other avenues when given equal opportunity - now, that's a natual fact - just like at comedy for example. Case closed. Popular culture. case closed. Equal opportunity is given - we see the dominance. and don't even talk about music. as much as the Beatles are all that - we know the greatest music of all is derivative from black culture. period even macca would agree.
The same dumb logic of Sports being a mirror image of the population is a fallacy. True, it is said that 5-7% of population may be bi-sexual or gay. Yeah, but, it isn't true across professional avenues. Fashion industry is probably 90% gay males, hair-dressers are probably 95% gay males. Ok, i'm exagerrating and drawing huge generalizations here. But, my point is the same way that blacks and whites are not equal to the population in its make-up of the NFL and other sports. I agree the same point on the NFL side. I find it hard to believe that the league that gave us men like Lombardi, Halas, Butkus, MEan Joe Greene, is gonna give us a 10% portion of gay males, etc. It's a myth that left wing liberals would love to slam down our throats in an attempt to promote some kind of agenda- but, it itsn't true.
I'm totally on board with whatever lifestyle people want to live in. And i'm cool that people like Freddie Mercury, Eleanor Roosevelt, Elton John, Carl Lewis, and Tom Cruise have done a lot to promote alternative lifestyles and that people can do whatever they want to make themselves happy. Just to go and try to force your lifestyle or way of life in my face - it's cool to be true to yourself but don't go and say that 10% of all NFL and MLB players are gay cause there's no way it's true. It's a tiny portion and if there is some big celeb in the NFL there's no evidence of it. at all. Probably because it ain't there.
British rock stars on the other hand. Well, what can we? I would say that there are too many to list. Personally, i am glad MAcca didn't pull a Jagger, Elton John, Rod Stewart, David Bowie and experiment in alternative lifestyle. As much as i dig those cats, i lost respect for their 70's alternative lifestyle and i think it promoted an agenda that led to excess, lack of morality, even untimely death. Say, man, if you can't be true to your woman like Mick and Bowie weren't, u ain't true to yourself.
