We are at the point of 7 wolves and 3 sheep voting for what to have for dinner. Have you tried to buy a gun recently? Oh, the military will crush the militias. How has that worked in Iraq? South Vietnam?

I don't really value any celebrities opinions for that matter. They are just entertainers.
Agreed, i can't understand why people get so upset over someone who has a different opinion.

I love college football. I am an alum to both UCF and FSU. With that said there is something here that could actually pose a legs issue for colleges and universities. Black Lives Matter is for the most part a political action group supporting only one side. How is it legal for an athletic department or coach to support such an organization especially at a publicly funded state institution? How does this not set up a situation. where student athletes and even coaches who feel differently are not now in a hostile environment? How is it a state school can say we support BLM who contributes all of their donations to ACT Blue which then donates 100% of their money to just one party? I am no attorney but I can't imagine when you still down on this that it is as best anywhere ethical or it could even be illegal? If I was a conservative student athletes who had a spine I would bring this up. To me this a nefarious deed to get college teams to support BLM. That's my take .

yes,I never would have thought that he would openly support BLM. That's his choice,but as a head coach that represents a major university,he's walking on dangerous ground. I went to the other college down there and we think differently than that. I can see the alumni changing their generous contributions?
I will still watch college ball unless something drastic happens. I'm done with all pro sports except golf.

like this? I’m a HUGE Bama fan. I hate it for us, y’all, and everyone involved in college football. I haven’t made my mind up if I’m gonna watch this year or not. I’m ashamed of what it’s become, but I knew this was coming.

College football is about to get a dose of reality. The more groups denounce and put down anything and anyone who has a different opinion than them ,you will see the Bull Gators, Golden chiefs and any other big university booster tell these programs to pound sand. I already know some top tier boosters who have already said NO MAS. Texas laid off 45 people in their athletic departments. The media will tell you its a CV19 issue. Its also a number of big boosters have quietly withdrawn their financial support. You won't here much from these big boosters. They will quietly slip away and the all these programs will be left with their WOKE movement.

Waddell is right. These universities are walking down a slippery slope.
College football makes millions.
Wealthy alumni donate billions.
