Default Bama Football March Against Racial Injustice. Gonna Boycott?

Bama football and Saban marched against racial injustice today. So, all of you who bailed on the NFL, especially the Bama fans out there....no more football for you? https://www.si.com/college/alabama/b...iS7s1IS9KkQ9gk

ECU had a blm protest today also. It will probably be a while before i buy any more tickets. I saw something with coack k and duke a few days ago but didnt click it because i dont care to see it. All coaches and players have to go along with the mob or they will be singled out. Its basically democrat rallies. I had a job once where i was around college athletes a lot and i learned to never look up to them anymore because most are ignorant people. Watching Tucker right now for entertaining rational discussion of what this movement actually is.

A few coaches at my alma mater came out in support of BLM. I believe (not positive, just saw a snippet) that maybe our WBB official tweeter page said something to the effect of if you don't support BLM then you don't support the athletes on the court.

Fair enough. I don't support them in that case and can now throw away the forms to re-up my donations this year.

I will not watch sports until this nonsense is over.

Referees can blow a whistle and everyone stops. Police officers holler to stop and everyone runs. Go figure

Cops need whistles? lol

Personally, I'm over this boycott BS. I'll watch the NFL, however, I'm over the NBA, it's not a good enough product for me to listen to Lebron James.

My experience is that once you quit watching for a while, you'll wonder why you ever did. Giant waste of time.

This is my experience also. Definitely was not a die hard fan of any one sport, but enjoyed several. Gave them all up and could not care less if I ever see any of them again. I quit watching due to the political BS. There are so many other things I enjoy doing. I honestly hope they all suffer economically to a point the overpaid players have to take pay cuts or the system crashes!

I'm waiting for the day when all these sports teams lash out against their former fan base and call them racists for electing not to bow to their political agenda.

I watched maybe half a dozen NFL and one or two college games per year, so this won't be a big loss. It does kinda suck that Bama is on my daughter's short list of colleges to attend. If she attends I would have wanted to see a game there.

Their shrill bleating has worn me out. Call me racist all you want; hell call me a Nazi. Call me a white supremacist. Call me honky, call me cracker.

I do not give an airborne scrump. It's all just noise, like a four-year-old who won't stop talking. I don't have to listen.

I still treat everyone like I'd like to be treated, and generally receive it in return. If not, I figure it's their issue, not mine.

Oops, gotta go, gotta get the kids to Hitler Youth!

I enjoy football and will continue to watch. It doesn't run my Sundays but if there's a good game on, I'll watch it.

I also Continue to successfully drown out the noise. I don't value the athletes opinions on social matters, or any subject for that matter, I just enjoy watching the sport.

I don't really value any celebrities opinions for that matter. They are just entertainers.

No one has explained how these marches will stop cops from shooting black people. Or how it will make managers hire and promote more black people. Or make landlords want to rent to more black people. These same people clamor about wanting democracy. The US is 69% white, they are pissing off most white people. How is democracy going to work out for them?

And how do you think the passage of The Voting Rights Act of 1965 came to be? And 69% of the white people don't necessarily share your opinion. Last time I checked it was more like 31%.

Enough normal people watch football so it wont matter.
