Wonder why you did not have a similar response in this thread.

I never really watched pro sports anyway, but I am not giving up college football. Especially this year! I was excited about watching South/USM play Thursday night but my son's high school plays Thursday.

I will watch less but never formally "boycott" many things. Most of us couldn't survive if we boycotted everything we disagree with.

I will, however, quit using a product when it no longer provides value. I love football and always watched NFL games, when convenient. Several years ago i noticed 60% of the announcers speaking had nothing to do with football, so I started watching muted. Then I started noticing the camera would follow the player about whom they were speaking (like Capernick or Newton) instead of focusing on the game. I got tired of it and quit tuning in simply from fatigue, not protest. After a week, I felt like I had an additional day in my week to play or get stuff done. So it has been easy to stay away.

I usually watch Auburn on Saturday and most often one other game at a different time, but after all of the whining this year, I may just check the scores.

It has become increasingly hard to follow an event on which my very existence has no affect.

Everyone knows you like sports no matter what. Good for you. Why don't want to hang out with all the other cool kids and talk about them in the sports forum.

This is not about sports, but I do not expect you to see or understand that.

Why? Because they marched down a street for something they believe vs burning down cities and attacking the PoPo? I for one think this is a great idea and a good example of how to express concern for their issues vs what we are currently experiencing across this nation. It's called a team for a reason. My .02

Nope

Will watch it no matter what

Like it or not they are entitled to their opinions just like I am, just like pro athletes

I do not listen to any advice any athlete has to say on politics , man enough and smart enough to make up my own mind

I'll be right there with you. Last week for the first time in my long life watched Austin Peay vs Central Arkansas. Never would have before now
