Default NFL with just white players

Would the NFL still be successful with just white players? Obviously the NBA wouldn't. However, the NFL is 30% white and many of the elite QBs are white. The NFL is a QB driven League so IMO Rodgers, Brady, Manning, Brees, and Luck would still make the NFL a successful business.

It would not be successful whatsoever.

Barely any non-whites would watch it anymore.

Would there be any good running backs?

Any good receivers? (besides welker)

I think ratings would only decrease by 40%. So still successful. Slow white Wrs would be covered by slow white CBs so it would be a good match up. The passing game would heavily depend on precise route running. RBs would be used for short yardage. Guys like Tebow and Peyton Hillis would be RBs. There are many quality white o-lineman, d-lineman, LBs, and TEs so those positions wouldn't suffer as much.

I feel you.

But even white people don't want to watch slow wide receivers run routes against slow dbs.

We want speed and athleticism.... we want black people.lol

The NFL would still function, and be somewhat entertaining, but it would not be as popular, ratings would plummet, exciting "top 10 worthy" plays would be non-existent. it would be RIP to the NFL

I don't know how successful it would be compared to now but it'd still do pretty well .. they already have white receivers who burn 'fast' dbs(jordy nelson) .. just recruit more of them .. the best qbs are white .. some of the best linemen are white .. same with linebackers .. the nfl would do just fine

It would probably still work, but everyone would see elite (black) athletes in sports like Basketball and would question the quality of the product on the field.


I'm not sure exactly when Football was created, but major League Baseball was successful for decades before integration.

the game would be slower and more physical with lesser athletes, injuries would skyrocket.

Injuries would fall because slower = less force. Speed X mass = force. back in the old days dudes played without helmets and with leather helmets. If they used the same equipment while running slower, injuries would plummet.

People would overwhelmingly and rightly question the level of play, if you excluded every non-white.

Non- hispanic White people are still 63.7% of the american population and hispanic whites are still 72.4% of the population. It would be nowhere as successful, but it would still be profitable. White people statistically speaking on average have more disposable income than non-whites (excluding asians, who are only like 4.7% of the population) which would be useful for generating advertising revenues, jersey and other apparel sales, season ticket sales, etc.

The demographics of who is watching what is important to advertisers. The care about demos as well as ratings. Golf, NASCAR (not really a sport), cycling, figure skating, hockey, etc. are sports that exist off of primarily white viewership.

Baseball existed for 50+ years as whites only.

There wouldn't be as many suspensions and off field issues such as women beating and gun incidents.

That seems logical, but most white players currently in the NFL are chippy and rough, not finesse players, so it stands to reason that the league would fill its ranks with these physical type players and the game would be much more of a donnybrook.

Football watching is about as close to a religion as I get. And that's even being primarily a hoops guy. But the actually act of watching football on Sunday has been cultivated by my closest friends and I for a long time.

And one of the things we do every year is try to put together an all white team. Truth is it's not very difficult except for three spots. Corner, WR, and Running Back.
Every year you can find a WRs. Sure they're usually slot guys. But the outside speed guy in the Don Bebe/Jordy Nelson mold exist every year. Not enough to fill the league, but they're doable.
And every year there's a running back or two as well. But again, never enough to canvas an entire league with.

But CB? Man! I think last year we were wondering if Jason Seahorn could come out of retirement. By far the hardest position to find. We've even considered just having to use some lightskinned brothers just to fill it out.
Safety could be a problem if you really want to split up Strong and Free, there's always a handfull of white Strongs out there. Frees less so. And if we do find a real Free, we'd probably be wondering if we could use him at Corner anyway.
