What the NBA and NFL do not understand. I see this political crap on a daily basis. Has always been this way. The reason I watched was because it was a distraction from all the bulls!t this world and life throws at you on a constant basis.

I do not want to be bombarded with more of the same while watching them.

If they didn't like Black people (and tsk tsk, you're supposed to capitalize the B now...surprised you missed that...you must not like Black people), then how come they had no problems watching for decades prior?

I personally have never been much of a football fan, so none of this concerns me all that much anyway.

Lol guess I should have said "we get it, you don't like black people with opinions? who talk? who ask for equal treatment?"

I'm gonna guess you're firmly in the "it's disrespectful to the military!" camp. Or the "all lives matter" camp.

I canít speak for anyone else but what does not watching sports anyone have to with ď not liking black peopleĒ.
The NHL is almost entirely white MLB is mostly White And Hispanic. I stopped watching the NBA when it became a 3 pt shooting contest. And if you breathe on a guy itís a foul. The NFL is mostly Black as is my favorite all time players Lawrence Taylor and Jerry Rice. What I donít like is a guy making a million bucks a year bitching when 20 million people are out of work. Whether its Bryce Harper saying 300 million is not enough or Darelle Reevis holding out every year.
Eff them all

Lots of boo birds during pre game. I'm with Jay on this. Sports has always been a diversion from all the stress, politics and other B.S. going on in the world. Now I don't have that. If racing goes down that road I'll seriously reconsider my interest.

At times I feel like I woke up after 20 years and am trying to figure out what the hell happened to professional sports. Damn, I am sounding like an old man.

PS: I try not to mix sports with politics and social (in)justice. Wish the athletes did not as well.
Jim, I hear what you saying about pro sports today and I'm feeling like an old man too.

But I want to say this. I gave up on the NBA a long time ago for the reasons you gave. But the other night I saw most of the 4th quarter of the Celtic-Raptor game and both overtimes. Both teams were playing as hard as John Havlichek in his prime. There were great passes and total sell out by the players to win that game.

People may say I'm over-selling it but you can find out for yourself. Game 7 of the series starts in about 40 minutes on TNT.

And Stuball, hang in there. It doesn't get better - but it does get more tolerable.

Wrong.
We don't like people that think America is a racist country.
The U.S.A. has bigots of all kinds, every country in the world does.
But the U.S.A. in no longer systemically racist.
Those guys taking a knee are proof.
