Sports & Politics This section is for all political sports talk. Regrettably we feel that in some instances there is no way to eliminate politics from football, basketball, and baseball hobbytalk. Do you pretend nothing is happening with the Warriors, Steelers, A's, etc? This section is for all political sports discussion. However, it is for civil discussion only. No insults aimed at members, political parties, or politicians will be tolerated. There is no warning. If you cannot be civil, you will lose your posting privileges on this site.

More likely he met an irresistible SJW at a New Year's Eve party, sparks flew, and they eloped. Upon his return, he'll be back on the side of the good guys, like he used to be.

Would be great if some company made a patriotic Super Bowl commercial, portraying the kneelers in a bad light. Sales would go thru the roof.

They would gain a customer for life from me. I don't care if they are selling used toothbrushes.

Oh, did they already put out a commercial, portraying the kneelers in a bad light? And that is why their profits went down? Bummer.

Sad that saying please stand could be considered a political stance.

It's a touchy subject. Try and just don't mention it.

Please remember to phrase your answer in the form of a question, but that's good for one thousand. The board is yours. Where to next?

Sad that we would even need to tell people what to do during the National Anthem.

It's neither our job nor our right to tell others to stand or not stand OR to kneel or not kneel. No company that sells its product to a wide segment of society is going to touch this.

We don't have the right to tell people they should stand for the national anthem? I believe it is our job to teach good values, morals, and what the right thing to do is.

Those are relative things. Your values aren't necessarily mine, and I know for sure that I'm a patriot who loves America. Does that mean that you aren't one and that you don't?

I wouldn't say so, but then, I'm not like those who would impose their will on others, given the chance.

I'm not saying everyone should pray 3 times a day (insert whatever moral tangent you're implying), I'm saying we should stand and show respect to our flag, our country and its history when it's the proper time to do so. You're making a deflective argument. I can't believe you just posted you don't impose your will onto others. Take a few days and read all of your posts on here.
