Sports Mediocrity is most desirable for the ruling class

If you will remember the original Rollerball movie, starring James Caan, you will recall how the ruling elite would only permit the existence of one professional sport, Rollerball.
The sport was so dangerous that few players ever made it through an entire season without either being killed in action or suffering a serious career ending injury.

The sport was intentionally designed to be so brutal as a form of social engineering.
The ruling elites wanted to eliminate the possibility of any individual achieving superstar status due to the possible political ramifications involved. They wanted the masses to think in terms of being part of a group that does as they are told. Individuality was discouraged and to be perceived as selfish. Superstardom was to be perceived as a condition that always results in injury or death!

Once an individual achieved the status of superstar, the ruling elites feared the potential of this superstar developing a political following which may threaten the control of the ruling elite. Therefore, by only allowing a sport to exist which frustrated both individuality and stardom, people would be programmed to be more content with mediocrity and a socialistic form of existence.

This is not simply fantasy. Regarding professional sports in America, this form of mediocrity and/or parity is the most desirable situation and condition among the ruling elite as well. Generally speaking, the owners of professional sports teams in America are either multi-millionaires or even low level billionaires. However, the ruling elites, like the Rockefellers and the Rothschilds are trillionaires and have an enormous amount of control over every billionaire in America. The wealthy all know this too.

Therefore, for example, Major League Baseball (MLB) team owners, though extremely wealthy and powerful people by any standard measure, are but small potatoes to the truly wealthy ruling elites. You must never challenge a Rockefeller, a Rothschild, or any of their trillionaire friends.

MLB team owners all understand that mediocrity and parity make these super powerful and well connected trillionaires feel most secure. Therefore, for example, in MLB you see some of the most uneducated and unsophisticated coaches and players one can possibly imagine. While many of the players are fantastic athletes, they are not well educated, properly trained, or allowed to maximize their potential.

While extraordinary neuro-physical technology exists, along with highly advanced coaching expertise necessary to routinely produce .400 batting averages, even the .500 batting average, the ruling elites would have someone’s head for such blasphemy. MLB team owners all know this too. Mediocrity and parity must remain the norm.

Can you imagine a handsome white man with the name of Kelly or Murphy playing centerfield for the Boston Red Sox hitting .450 with 125 Home Runs?
Whatever this man might say would be regarded as gospel by millions of Americans.
This man could run for any office and win by a landslide, right? Of course! That’s why
You will never see such fantastic levels of performance. Not because it can’t be done, but because it is not allowed by the ruling elites. If you doubt this, you are naïve in the extreme.

With the backing of a courageous owner, along with and the necessary authority to hire and fire both players and management who may choose to interfere with my management and coaching style, I could easily produce a team of .400 hitters, even a few.500 hitters.

Beginning at the Class A rookie league level, within three years I would have everyone in the entire organization hitting.400 or better. Of course, there is no owner with the courage to permit such greatness. That owner knows his head would roll.

Should any MLB owner decide to man up and challenge the trillionaire elites, all they need to do is send me an e-mail at bwinwright@hotmail.com. My name is Bruce Winship Wright and I can do what I claim. Courage is the only requirement needed to find out.

I'm sorry, but coaching isnt going to make a hitter bat .500. no hitter will EVER bat .500. Anyone who knows anything about baseball knows this as a fact. It is next to impossible. Not to mention that with the advancements of hitting coaching, so has pitching advanced.

Sports is a distraction. It would be in the best interest of TPTB to have MORE sports, not less. That way less attention would be on the real issues.

ETA: Have you ever played baseball competitively?

My sister is dating a professional AFL player here in Australia.

While he is dumb as # I dont think theres any conspiracy involved.
To even get to the top of your game and play professionally you need to invest a huge amount of time and effort in getting your body and mind right. Basically if your training 8 hrs a day 6 days a week it doesnt leave aliot of time for much else.
That said AFL teams over here are very big on making sure players have something to fall back on when their careers finish and get them all sorts of training and academic help if they need or want it.

I personally think the pro sports of today are like the old glsadiators, bread and circuses to keep us distracted.
I doubt they care about what these athletes say.

i think pro sports are much more of a successful distraction than you give them credit for. they have long been another part of the divide & conquer that Uncle Sam counts on that keeps people from talking to their spouses, children, neighbors and friends about things that really matter.

considering how many people are clueless as to how screwed we all are, many living in pissed-off ignorant bliss in the USA have precious little time to themselves for any activity whatsoever. fill in that blank with the pro sports of your choosing and you've got a lot of folks who will not give up 5 minutes of their precious free time to hear some important truths.

sports distractions are terribly important to control of the masses. generation after generation of blinders-on clueless wageslaves raising each other as they were raised. its a vicious massive cycle.

look at the importance placed upon school vs school competition even at High School level across America. anyone showing a bit of ability in a sport is treated like a Prince in public and private schools. Johnny Quarterback & Suzy Creamcheese CheerLeader are placed on thrones, propped up for all to see, pointed to as examples of good clean Amerikan living. the stereotype is disgusting and pathetically hilarious. there is no money for teaching music, a chess club or art supplies but damn right there is everything the sports teams need or want, year after year, no matter what.

its all a bunch of BS, just like most of the control that governments use to keep the masses crosseyed & painless.

People can blame whoever they want, but looking in the mirror will result in a more accurate picture of who is really to blame.

I personally feel the same as a previous poster, that sports is nothing but a worthless distraction to keep the masses busy and preoccupied with completely irrelevant activities.

I have nothing against sports, they are fun. People should stay active, and involving ones self in sporting activities gives you the ability to work together for a single goal, develop strategy, etc. In my opinion, sports are meant to be played, not watched and worshiped like so many people do.

Go around any city and ask people about history, astronomy, economics, politics, and most people will show how extremely ignorant they are of things that actually effect their lives. Go around and ask them about football, baseball, basketball, and you will see why. Because they fill their heads with all this useless information, and waste their time and money watching trained monkeys in a circus.

Same thing with TV and movies. I love a good movie as much as the next guy, but this ridiculous obsession people have with movie and TV stars is borderline scary. Why on earth do you want to know the life story of a frickn ACTOR? How about learning the life story of major historical figures? Or the "life story" of people in politics that effect YOUR life?

People often blame the government for trying to subdue, control, and dumb down the population. Well, this is true, but they can't do it without the cooperation of the people. And sadly people are far too willing to give a huge amount of their time, energy, and money to support and follow sports figures and actors. They let these people TELL them what is "cool" They let people TELL them what to eat, wear, watch, think, talk about, etc.

Hollywood and organized sports are the true opiate of the masses. People always say it's religion, maybe that used to be true, but look around today and it's obvious people care much more about what their favorite actor likes to eat for dinner, or what kind of shoes their favorite basketball player wears, than anything that's actually "real" and effects their lives.

Look at the recent riots in Canada because of a HOCKEY GAME. Things like this aren't even new. A hockey game is not important. It means nothing. Yet people are willing to destroy property, harm people, and behave like animals because of it? Shows what's really important to these people, huh? Makes me ashamed to be part of the collective known as "citizens"

Willie Mays once stated that one of the most difficult things he had to do was hit a baseball thrown by an MLB pitcher. With the exception of Rod Carew, George Brett, Tony Gwynn and a couple of others, nobody has even come close to hitting .400 since Ted Williams hit .406 a whopping 70 years ago!

As the previous poster mentioned, when you have pitchers who can pinpoint a fastball at over 100 MPH and then follow it with a breaking ball which drops off the table at 89 MPH, you will not get too many .400 hitters anytime soon. As for your claim of hitting .500 being possible, this has to be one of the most unrealistic things I have ever read in regards to pro sports.

Now, if you want an MLB conspiracy, how about looking into steroid usage by players and livening up the baseball after the 1994-95 strike to increase run production and win back a disillusioned fan base. Of course, this backfired, and did little for the integrity, nor the enjoyment of the game. When scrawny shortstops who only had 10 career home runs were hitting 35 homers in a season, you knew something was up.

Look at that sorry excuse of a stadium which was built in Denver for the expansion Colorado Rockies, where shallow fly balls would end up out of the park. When did the stadium open up? April 26, 1995. These aren't coincidences, these are intentional lousy decisions made by an incompetent commissioner who caved into greed and went for a quick fix to baseball's major PR problems after the strike.

In all fairness, MLB learned their lesson from the Steroid Era and has gone back to more traditional baseball, when effective pitching, solid defense, on field strategy and real grass stadiums were an integral part of the game.

Contrary to your claims, the ruling class is a lot more interested in mediocre political leaders (which can be easily "swayed") than mediocre sports figures. Just because a guy can win the Triple Crown in baseball, it does not mean that he can win election to the so-called highest office in the land. One has absolutely nothing to do with the other.

There are some good topics on ATS these days, and then there is some mindless drivel. This post falls into the latter.

TPTB couldn't care less about Professional Sports. Sports are a form of distraction, to keep the masses entertained while they do their deeds, good or bad.

And no one, NO ONE is ever going to bat .500...ever. If I get to see someone bat .400 in my lifetime, I will consider myself incredibly blessed. It's why the Hall of Fame in Cooperstown is filled with a bunch of buys with lifetime averages of .315. If you had some secret knowledge that would make this happen, you'd be in a dugout in one of the 32 Major League cities, spitting Copenhagen and yelling "Atta babe!"

Batting .500, hahahaha. Good attempt at a new, interesting topic, but once you claimed superior hitting coach skills that 130 years of professional, amatuer and little league coaches never had, your topic became silly.

Good day.

All fantastic points.

ATS posters: Step up your game.

By the way, if any NBA organizations are willing to hire me, and give me the rights to fire any player, assistant, or staffer, I can guarantee that within 3 years, I will have every single person in the organization (even hot dog vendors) shooting 70% from three-point land, 85% from the field, and 98% from the stripe. It's easy. Get at me.

I am gonna go out on a limb here and guess that the OP has never tried to hit a 90mph cut fastball...

And sports are certainly a successful distraction. Even for someone like me who knows that they are a distraction, when I am not on ATS in my free time I am following sports. Of course, being from Boston it is hard not to become engrossed (Congrats Bruins! Go Sox!)...But sports are a welcome distraction from the madness of this world, even when you know you are being distracted.

After playing professional baseball I played fast pitch softball and had the opportunity to bat against the best pitcher in the world on many occasions, Ty Stofflet from Reading, PA. Simply Google his name and read about him. He was clocked at 104 MPH from only 46 feet, which equates to 136.78 MPH from 60 feet-6 inches.

Using Rogers Hornsby's secret in a unique fashion in preparation against Ty, I ended up discovering how to enhance my space-time perception, thereby making the action slow down. This was truly an incredible discovery for me because I hit 4 line shots in 6 at-bats in this particular tournament against Ty.

Since this discovery in 1974, I have refined my methods and now have the ability to teach this to anyone. Of course, nothing can substitute for hard work. However, by working hard enough at what I teach, the .500 batting average is certainly a possibility. During one 30 day stretch in 1924 Hornsby hit .509. During a 60 day stretch in 1924, Hornsby hit .489. It can be done. I know how. I realize it's tough for most folks to believe.

When Marconi's friends asked him why they hadn't seen him for a long time, he told them he had been busy in his laboratory, that he was close to being able to send voices and sounds from one place to another, at a great distance, using only the ether in the air as the conducting medium. They had him straight-jacketed and questioned by a team of psychiatrists. Of course, history is full of such examples.

My hitting technology is just one more example of something extraordinary, new and vastly improved over what is currently being taught in Major League Baseball.
