    My interest in pro sport started waning when the players were younger than my kids. I watched the last Superbowl only because my son threw a party for it. Other than that I was done when number 7 took a knee.

    I can understand that, which is why I personally “chose” to not watch until after kickoff.


    Where's the "puke" emoji?

    Until they shut the F up and play I'm not watching.

    Being a life long Chiefs fan, I celebrated their first Super Bowl Victory in 1969. And was able to experience last years Super Bowl Win in Miami with my son. It's difficult for me to completely walk away from 'our' Team.

    But, I can certainly relate to the disgust and distain for the Political movement that has taken priority over the game itself. Like most, I look at Sports as entertainment and an escape from the daily chaos.

    A curious thing about pro sports, people have "their team" typically it's the team playing in or near their hometown. You only get the team that the owner pays for funded by the fans. Some people act as if "their teams" players would be there otherwise. As loyal a fan as you may be these athletes have no loyalty to you. I prefer to go to a local high school game, at least they are from your community. But they are jerks too nowadays.

    I see football fans that were once passionate about the game and their teams who are done with the BS. Where is the irony in that?

    Food for game time? -50.00 times 16 games equals $800.00
    Beer and drink? -50.00 times 16 games equals $800.00
    NFL Sunday ticket? -300.00
    Not wearing the jersey of a guy that supports a communist organization that wants to kill cops, disrespect our nation, and calls me a racist because I support law and order???

    Priceless, and I get to save $1900.00 bucks on top of it!

    How would you feel?"

    “Imagine there is a man who, for the last five years, has assaulted you, on average, two times a year. He has raped you in the past. Then, he shows up at your house at 4:00 in the morning. You wake up to find him standing above you, you have your child in bed with you. He has his 'junk' out and then he sexually assaults you. He leaves the room, you quiet your child and go into the living room. He is gone. You look out the window and your car is gone. You check your purse, your keys and ATM card are gone.

    You call the cops. Cops show up. As you cry, you describe the sexual assault. The cops tell you this man has withdrawn money from your bank account twice in the last several minutes. Okay, are you 'imagining' all that?

    Well, then imagine this. The guy who sexually assaulted you has received over TWO MILLION from a 'GoFundMe' account. NFL players, such as Drew Brees, have your rapist's name on his helmet. MLB baseball players walk off the field to support your rapist. EVERY THING I JUST TYPED IS FACT! It comes from the police report on the Jacob Blake incident. Today, we have professional sports figures celebrating a friggin' rapist!

    Now imagine they built statues, raised monuments, named streets, schools and forts after him.

    Rooftop, This is The Clubhouse with a thread called "Are You Ready for Football ?"

    Some have answered "No" with an explanation and quite a bit of restraint.

    I can't explain my "No" without a scorched earth diatribe.

    For those who are "enjoying" the NFL games (among others) I would suggest that you get caught up on current events.

    Da Bears second half come back was a sight to see!
    I had to go to the big screen at the bar to watch game as it was not on up here.
    Drank too many tap beers and was frustrated at the 23-3 score.
    Rode my bicycle home and took a nappy.
    Woke up and watched the highlights of the game and it was awesome!
    Love yours. D
