  1. I got a bold prediction for ya. The NFL goes bankrupt in less than 2 years. Go play in China ya communist racist America hating trash. 
     

    I told you people, I freaking warned y’all straight up. The first season those racist little babies took a knee, I quit. I quit right then and never came back. I begged y’all to stop this. I begged y’all to boycott, but many of you didn’t see the storm brewing.
     

    .....and here we are. Your sick, twisted little butt kissing sport is dead.  #boycottnfl

    How much would you pay to be able to walk without terrible pain for the last 50+ years of your life? At what point is it morally repugnant to make such a decision about one's only life?

     

    In my late 40's now, I wrecked my back moving a couch a year ago and I now understand it will always pain me. I would give just about anything to make it stop. Relatively speaking, it's a very minor thing. Luck's injury cache looks like the aftermath of a series of car accidents. 

     

    We're talking about a business that routinely turns its back (and loyalties) on players of even the most stalwart variety. Due to injury, performance issues, smoking pot.... these franchises oblige no one player their loyalties. An exception may be Tom Brady and his unique player/franchise relationship with the Patriots. 

     

    Luck would've likely spent most of the season on his rear practically engorging himself like a bloated salary cap tick. 

     

    Try dealing with his sudden retirement during week 4 when the overstock of talented free agents has depleted to a bargain area of ragamuffins.

     

    The old school forum vets will vouch, I was here, every day, for the 2011 and 2012 season. It broke my heart. It broke my heart and my spirit when my favorite player and the franchises backbone suddenly departed. 

     

    It wasn't the player who decided that. It was the team. The Colts. Broke my spirit for the game. 

     

     I hope Luck moves on and enjoys his life to its fullest. A big beautiful house with a bunch of kids he loves. Years of being a dad and chasing the little boogers around the yard...…. ya know, because he can ****ing walk still?

     

    Remember that game when Luck and Wayne railed the Packers in an unforgettable win for Chuck? That was fun to watch, as a fan. I ain't gonna sit here and say a single bad thing about one of the fellas that made that memory. Good times!

    Bah LOL.

     

    I'm a young guy, regularly go 10 mph over the limit...last time I had a ticket was over 7 years ago.

     

    Then online, we see all these narratives about the police being bad, it's hard not to call it nonsense. Encountering the police is a rare occurrance, even for traffic much less criminal investigations.

    Very few would say all (most) cops are "bad". The issue herein is a woeful lack of accountability when such an officer emerges. 

     

    We cannot change the way police treat blacks without changing the way they treat everybody. Do that and everything should fall into place. I know a cop's job is dangerous. According to statistics, however, being an attendant at a convenience store/gas station is far more dangerous. Neither police nor gas station clerks should be whipping out guns at the first sign of possible trouble. 

     

    Cops get away with it, clerks do not. We should at least hold cops to the same standard as a 3rd shift attendant at a gas station.

    What facts are those? I honestly remember a he said she said with no video and conflicting statements. And given the other instances which provided video evidence that the police are capable of this behavior, I definitely wouldn't just rule it out as a possibility.

     

    Idc what YOU think of Michael Brown, it doesn't mean he deserved to die. That's a really cold position to take. He is irrelevant to the overall issue, which not too many people don't agree is a real problem.

     

    These players are kneeling in protest of police brutality. But for some reason people want to make it about race and the military instead of just coming together and actually supporting each other for a change. Is this really worth all this uproar?

     

    I don't blame the players for holding strong and taking the heat on this. 

    I want to go on record saying; I think police have WAY too much power and discretion for the application of violence. I just happen to believe that they abuse all people, not just blacks. Blacks just perceive it that way due to Americas obvious history of racial abuse. 

     

    Something has to change, but nothing will if we keep up this false racial narrative. If you or anyone else wishes to indulge, there are some stunning statistics out there that show police abuse toward whites being well in proportion with said behavior toward blacks.

    I love you @PrincetonTiger  but I think me and @ruksak got a thing goin here.

     

    I think ruksak might be funny.  Like @BOTT level funny, maybe.

     

    I don't know, ya gotta ha a lil arsehol in ya to keep up in these threads sometimes, and I haen't seen anyting unforgivable yet.

    I know some people may think my comments are racist, and that grades on me. Maybe it's my clumsy words....dunno. What I do know is that my daughter has a black boyfriend and, despite him not appreciating my homemade beef stroganoff, he's a good dude and I have no quandary.

     

    I just wanted to watch football for the first time in two years. Boy....did I pick a bad day to do that. I hate celebrities whom make political statements. Let's call it a pet peeve. 

     

    Catch a TD, act in a film, but keep your opinions to yourself, celebrities.

    It always has i.e. Jackie Robinson

    Being stuck in the past will literally get you nowhere. 

     

    That was a different time. Countless thousands of white kids walk around town with $100 jerseys that have a black mans name on the back of it, and their parents bought it for them for Christmas. Little white girls have posters of hulking black men on their walls and their parents think nothing of it, nor should they. 

     

    These heroes from another age are ghosts.

    Everyone the Colts won today and we should be celebrating this and stop the bickering because no one is Changing their views and The is what is great about being in America

    I bet I couldn't name 6 Colts players on the team. 

     

    I never thought I would say that. Which is at the heart of this thread; Why are so many people tuning out?

     

    Racism, real or perceived, has no merit for discussion within the realm of sport. I just wanted to watch football. I don't care about their personal political beliefs....at all.

    In many cases the celebrities are the common man just with great talents

    Rosie O'Donnell is a great example of the hypocracy I wish to highlight. 

     

    She is ardent anti-gun rights . Yet, she has armed body guards. I can't afford such an entourage. I can afford a Glock, however. 

  9. Just now, PrincetonTiger said:

    Most if not all were the common man until they were discovered

    That's highly dubious. 

     

    Somehow Madonna and Johnny Depp now sound British when they talk. They may have lost connection with what really matters, would be my point. Years of being praised like gods has an affect on a persons perceptions.

    Brave?  Haha, your words, not mine...

     

    Maybe I shouldn't have called it the "front line".

     

    I can see how that would be really disrespectful to people that have served on the actual front-lines.

    Ya know...celebrities with countless millions of dollars and charmed lives probably aren't the best people to speak for the common man. To them, the most important issues aren't jobs, the economy, taxes etc. To them, the most important issues facing everyday people are issues like transgender bathroom rights and black criminals being shot while running from the cops afte the commission of a crime.

    No I think they just are speaking about the ones murdered by the police, on video.

     

    That's a pretty good excuse for not being successful, no matter what color you are.

    I just showed you a vid of a white kid being murdered and nobody gave a damn. 

     

    But we care about Mike Brown, a violent assialant? Why? Because he was black? 

     

    We are all judged on appearances. 

     

    Maybe the real problem is the gangsta culture which has our youth emmulating thugs by wearing their pants down to their knees? Present yourself as such an be judged accordingly.

    They didn't fail.

     

    You say they are more rich and successful, then claim their protest is an excuse for failure.

     

    You don't make sense.

     

    Systematic racism isn't about money. You have been misinformed.

    I'm not sure you're intelligent enough for my time. That being said...... They make excuses for the failures of black men in America. That is how you should have comprehended my statements above.

    If you feel you have experienced racism as a white man in todays society, I get it.

     

    But to try to equate your experience with racism with that of black people in this country over the last 200 years is incredibly ignorant.

     

    I try not to use that term.  Ignorant is thrown around very loosely these days.  But seriously, if you think that you, as a white man in America, have experienced anything close to the depths of racism....

     

    Here's your sign.

    I didn't say I experienced "racism". 

     

    What happened 200 years ago is moot. 

     

    This started over the Micheal Brown shooting. A violent thug who committed numerous felonies leading up to his death. The nation reeled, fires burned, cops were attacked. 

     

    Kapernick took a knee.

     

    One week befiore Micheal Brown was shoot, another young man was blown away by a cop. This kid did nothing wrong. 

     

     

    Cop was black. Victim was white. Not sexy. You didn't hear a word about this, did you? The colors were all wrong. No racism here, no story. 

     

    Take that hook out of your mouth before they reel you in.

    If Dillon Taylor was Black, then it's a racist shooting. Right?

    I could see where you're coming from, but let's be honest here.  I'm white, so I've never had a police officer treat me with unwarranted suspicion and definitely never any outright disrespect. 

    I'm white as well. Yet I've been profiled and treated harshly. Sporting long hair for most my life (buzzed it years ago), Iknow what it's like to have people judge me for appearnce. 

     

    When I struggled from week to week as a young man, I was indeed under the scope of suspicion. I was poor. 

     

    Police don't (typically) racially profile. They profile poor people. 

     

    There's a cop sitting at a red light. He/She decides to run a registration check on a vehicle in front of them. There are 2 to choose from. One, a well dressed black man in a 2017 Toyota and the other a grundgy white man driving a rusted out 1996 Buick Skylark. 

     

    The cop will choose to run the plate of the Buick 100 times out of 100. Poor people are much more likely to have warrants, drugs, be intoxicated or have a suspened drivers license. 

     

    The issue is the financial disperity between blacks and whites, not simpley the colors involved.

    The players do get up and do their job after the National Anthem, so what's your point?

    After they impose subjection to the viewers. We are subjected to political statements as the new kick-off. 

     

    You have no right to freely express yourself at work. Let me get this straight; Players get fined for dancing but not for insulting America? 

     

    If I didn't have to see this abhorant disdain they seem to harbour for America I wouldn't complain, nor would we be having this conversation. It was allowed a few years back and myself and others warned of the consequence of inaction. 

     

    ...and here we are......

    This is exactly what I'm talking about.  This is what privilege sounds like.

     

    "We should be able to enjoy our entertainment without having to think about the injustices that many of the people I am currently watching play a sport have had to deal with in their life because I don't want to think about that right now, I just want to be entertained."

     

    You sound like fans that wouldn't have liked Jackie Robinson injecting his politics into the game.

    Injustice finds us all. No priveledge was extended to me. Of course, I had no ready excuse for my failures, such as racism, for example. 

     

    I listen to millionaire black men tell me that life isn't fair for them becuase they can't get ahead in America due to systematic racism. Yet they have more wealth than 99% of all human beings whom ever existed on this Earth. 

     

    Lies hidding behind skin color. Their lives are no more difficult or unfair as my own. People like to be victims, it's a great excuse for failure.

    Entertainers are usually on the front lines of social issues anyway, so it's naive to think it should be kept away from your awareness when you tune into entertainment programs.

     

    There's a certain amount of rebellious attitude that is a consequence of someone telling you to just "do your job and keep your mouth shut". 

    "Job". Exactly. They're at work, where your rights to free expressions are wholly limited. How would you feel if the lady at the post office or the mechanic fixing your car decided to sit down and disrespect America instead of doing thier job? Ya know.... cuz life isn't fair or whatever. 

     

    They would be fired on the spot. 

     

     

  18. I watched a team get away with cheating during a national championship game.

     

    I watched as the rules changed and softened the violence of football to a state of quasi-flag football because "we" want to pretend that we didn't understand that getting whacked in the head causes brain damage. 

     

    I saw the working mans staple, Monday Night Football, get ripped from the free airwaves by frickin' Disney. Mickey Mouse had the money to take that from the underclass masses. 

     

    I see uniforms changing every year, every game, and this is purely driven by jersey sales. Marketing this product too aggressively has changed the game and the experience for fans, as this is no longer a game. This NFL is merely a product on the shelf next to HD TV's and laptops. 

     

    I listened to Rashaad Mendenhal and Adrian Peterson compare playing in the NFL to .....slavery.

     

    Now I see these piece of garbage BLACK millionaires promoting the idea that black people cannot get ahead in America while contemplating whether or not to buy a Ferrari or a Lambo.

     

    Listen up, America. You are NOT a victim. You are responsible for your own life and the choices made therein. You may find comparable societies across the world, but you will find no society more fair than that of America. 

     

    Collin Kaepernick was raised well and he went to college, he made good choices. The people Kaepernick wants to paint as victims were raised by trash to act like trash and live like trash..... and Collin wants to sit out the anthem as a means of spotlighting how these trashy people are somehow victims of a nefarious systematic racist construct? 

     

    If you want to sit out a song in protest, take a damn knee when you hear someone playing Kanye West or Lil Wayne. Rubes. Y'all deserve the festering ghettos you murder each other in. Promote your peoples shortcomings to a funky beat. Nice. Victims. Right........

     

     

    If there's too many cops in your neighborhood for your liking, that means there's a LOT of crime in your neighborhood. Move. It's America. Move. 

     

    I hear stories from the Depression era of how men walked hundreds of miles to the next state, leaving their families behind so they could find work, and these helpless "victims" can't move to a better location? Pick up your free Obama-phone and find a job, any job, somewhere else. 

     

    If a cop pulls you over, don't run. Don't smart off. Do your duty as a citizen and allow the officer to do his job. It's not his/her fault you live in a crime-ridden filth pit.
