    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 The cops tell you this man has withdrawn money from your bank account twice in the last several minutes.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

    Ravens played great, as expected.

    Does anyone else see the irony in this thread?
    So thick I could cut it with a Sawzall.
  • No, not ready this year.

    I think the silly crap, has simply gone too far. I will miss the fun of watching, but feel morally they lost me as a fan.

    I admit, I'm addicted. I can't give it up. I did skip all pregame crap and only tuned in once the games started. Quickly muted if any "political" crap was raised. I watch sports to escape and relax. The only thing I want to argue about on Sunday is if that was pass interference or not.

    I must admit it was fun watching the highlight reel of Tom Brady getting his azz handed to him on a silver platter...

    I knew you couldn't stay away... kneeling or no kneeling... :*

    highlights on the evening news hardly qualifies as watching...

    SAD. We can ask how did we get here, but I'm more concerned on how far will this go. Looks like no one really cares and the snow ball is getting bigger.

    Would be nice to see the salaries come down as a result of this and watch all the cryin’ and boo hoo-ing
    But I’m sure that would be like worse than systemic fascism (Sub r for the f)
