    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?

    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?

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 The cops tell you this man has withdrawn money from your bank account twice in the last several minutes.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

    Ok so the indirect approach didn’t work. So let’s be blunt: cut it out boys, this is an AUDIO forum.

  • 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.
