#114296 NFL TV Ratings are Down.

Posted by Spen on 19 October 2017 - 08:41 PM

Yeah. The kneeling has nothing to do with it.

I agree man. The kneeling only bothers bigots and people uncomfortable with minority athletes standing up against systematic oppression.
Fuck bigots.

#113732 Just put my PSL's up for sale

Posted by Spen on 29 September 2017 - 07:55 AM

This is becoming a "Last Straw" for me too.
If they protest Sunday then I'm throwing my jersey on the field.
 
I don't care what they are protesting.
 
I have a high stress job, I work massive hours and I am raising 3 kids on my own.
Football is the one non serious thing I have. It's a hobby. An escape. I need a break and I'm willing to pay for it.  Football has always been fun and enjoyable for me but now I can't listen to the radio or read about football without wading through mountains of material on this player's protest issue....which has become so muddy that nobody knows what it's about now.
 
 
This world is loaded with serious issues. There is a ton of hate, injustice, ....massive harmfull unconscious human behavior. If football was 7 days a week, we wouldn't run out of things to protest.
 
Football brings us together. Remember this?

We came together as a community.
It felt wonderful. Togetherness always feels wonderful.
 
Now this has us all divided and isolated.
 
All the fans should stay downstairs for the anthem.
Let the millionaires kneel to an empty stadium.
 
I hope they come out and simply stand like they have for years.
That will mean they are done with this.
That would be good and wise.


I'm sorry you don't care what they are protesting. I'm sorry having millionaires standing is seemingly more important to you than someone protesting what they feel is oppression and cultural racism.

At worst, as long as it's peaceful and non disruptive I could care less what the players or guy next to me does during the anthem. But I respect what Colin did and what the players did Sunday. And I respect their right.

Even if I didn't, there is no way a peaceful protest is anywhere near as serious as a violent crime. Not even close. So shame on anyone who happily cheered for criminals but this is the last straw. Maybe if during the anthem Suggs would have threatened to pour bleach on his baby instead of kneeling none of this would have happened.

#113731 Just put my PSL's up for sale

I actually have many reasons for this, especially my health issues. But, this disrespect for our national anthem, flag, and military was the last straw.
I still don't even understand why they are doing this. Just play freak'in football. You're paid millions to do just that.
 
BTW, I AM ex-military and I love my country. It's not perfect but we are a beacon for freedom and hope. Just ask the millions who have emigrated here from elsewhere.


Nothing more American then dissent. I'm sorry you don't truly respect the first amendment and I'm sorry you don't understand why they did it. I'm sorry players have personalities and opinions and don't just play freak'in football.

#109416 Week 16 at Pittsburgh Steelers

Posted by Spen on 26 December 2016 - 12:50 AM

Good game I think we all can agree the NFL needs to fix the officiating. It's all around bad.


I'm just glad you're allowed to post here again.

#103612 This is really cool

Posted by Spen on 15 March 2016 - 10:24 PM

Remember Warrick Dunn? Anyone?

If you do, you remember for some stent where he was one of the more dominant running backs in the National Football League for the better part of a decade, but then did something far more important than any single thing he did on the field during his career after it ended; with little to nobody taking notice.

The former Tampa Bay Buccaneer and Atlanta Falcon started his very own charity, the Warrick Dunn Foundation, which to this date has bought 145 homes to single-parent families since 1997.

Well off to create a thread about the Ravens having a 4000 yard receiver.

#101610 LOL - HARBs says he's not going to Philly

Posted by Spen on 02 January 2016 - 04:10 AM

I guess we just have different visions of both acceptable performance and a coach's blame... Not sure how Harbs cost us that NE game.


Winning is so hard in the NFL (and other leagues). Its amazing how often people pull out 'shoulda wons' or 'woulda wons' when bringing up games we lost. Plus if we had won the game in NE years ago of course the team woulda won the super bowl and won again the next year. The only things that change are what we want to have changed, miraculously everything else stays the same.

#98681 Any The Walking Dead Fans?

Posted by Spen on 19 October 2015 - 11:38 AM

The main problem I had with FTWD besides the title was that we knew so much more than them that it was hard for them but to look stupid.

#98331 Any The Walking Dead Fans?

Posted by Spen on 12 October 2015 - 03:43 PM

I liked Fear The Walking Dead. I know some people thought it was slow but I don't think it was much slower than long portions of the TWD were. Herschel's farm and the prison both had weeks where nothing happened.

And don't forget Carl eating pudding for 35 minutes last year.

#97967 I like Obamas suggestion on violence

Posted by Spen on 03 October 2015 - 02:51 PM

PS ... I think it's easier than you think to have someone involutely committed for a short period.

 

I think that is what he meant, that since its relatively easy to get someone committed for a short period then perhaps that should not be used in determining whether someone should be allowed to own a gun or not.

#97686 YOU SUCK!

Posted by Spen on 01 October 2015 - 08:33 PM

If the Ravens lose tonight I can't come here because my family doesn't want me to.

Just kidding I'm not a fairweather fan.
