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.

Respect BO's move but please move it to bottom of list below gaming. Baseball is (rightly) first on the list.

This section is destined to become the ass end Blowout. As such, it should be moved to the very bottom of the Community section.

And congrats to the media. They got what they wanted. Ruining the last remaining, unifying venue where people could go to get away from this stuff: sports

Do we get a warning that there is no warning if we misbehave?

Won't take that long. This section will embolden people and they will go crazy and get banned.

You and your political and/or sports views suck! Is that too insulting for you?

They suspend you. That's a warning for the next guy.

Why not just set it to no "person to person" insults? I mean why does it matter if we insults someone's team or politician, etc etc. I think it would work better if it was person to person.

I will be doing jumping jacks during the anthem going forward to protest all the bad things in the world. I hope I make a difference, and that people look up to me, and that they use me as a moral compass to give more thought about human nature and the dichotomy of good vs bad. I want to do my part, and if that means shaking things up by drawing attention to myself during what is meant to be a moment of respect for your fellow countrymen and the sacrifices that have allowed you to make millions of dollars in a free country, then let me be that person.

I think this is a good idea. Wouldn't mind going into the baseball/football section and not having to read everyone's political views

This is why there won't be common ground. Players are kneeling because they feel stories like the one linked above are an injustice. Mentally ill? Unarmed? Innocent man?

Give me a break. These nice men getting gunned down are criminals, often in the act or being pursued for said crime, armed etc.

Again above a famous person with a voice spreading lies to make this seem an innocent man was murdered. What's crazy is that millions are following this craze since it's "the new cause".

That's no good. The President just might be a member here.

AWESOME!!!!!

Love nothing more than when Sports and Politics combine!!!!

It sucked when sports use to be an escape from politics and troubles, i use to watch Jordan and the bulls but my mind just kept wondering what Horace Grant's political stance was

I'm sure this will bring us all together.
