Guys, relax

If you care about the Clemson PROGRAM, then it is obvious which decision Dabo had to make in the interest of HIS "organization."

If you don't think the #1 team in college football was going to get absolutely dogged by the national for not participating, then you are foolish. Our recruiting would suffer. Our perception would suffer.

As someone who truly supports CLEMSON, this was the obvious move.

ND had nothing on theirs but rally. What does that even mean?

The #1 team and most discussed throughout the entire country.

Trust me, the media was salivating at the idea of us not wearing a sticker. Does Dabo care about his players? Does Dabo care about black people? The stories would have haunted the entire season.

Dabo was between the proverbial rock and hard place. The downside was just too great to simply ignore.

I don’t think he was between a rock and a hard place. If he is as good a Christian as I think he is, then he was ALL IN with the decision.

Isn't there something in there about showing love over judgment?

It isn't our job to judge Dabo and his players, it's our job to support them when they need support.

There’s nothing Christian about Black Lives Matter.

There is also nothing Christian about lying, adulterous, money grubbing, divisive, racist Donald Trump. Yet you support him. Why not Black Lives Matter. Just a hunch! Its the "black" part right?

in the real world, and every time it's been tried has killed tens of millions of people. Ideally a stateless society with little or no private ownership. Inherently contradictory and incompatible with basic human nature.

Once the failure of marxism became obvious, the marxists, instead of admitting their error, simply rebranded it. Hence the heinous (and again contradictory) postmodernist neo-marxism you see vying for power today.

Dabo was being pressured to stop the Christian talk and he didn’t bat an eye.

Dabo has also held our uniforms at a higher standard than this.

There were other options if he felt like anything needed to be done. Even a unity sticker as opposed to BLM.

2021 orange level memberbadge-donor-10yr.jpg

Posted: Sep 12, 2020, 7:12 PM
 

The team voted on this decision, right?

You guys are putting Dabo in an awful difficult position. You want him to recruit and win, but want him to make unilateral decisions that will directly limit his ability to do just that.

As a Trump supporter, please, for the love of Clemson, just let this one go. It's not worth the fight. The sticker is so small you can't even see on TV (or in person), so I'm OK with it.


Re: You do realize


Posted: Sep 12, 2020, 7:18 PM
 

Do you hear yourself?


If this team voted to run a wishbone this year- would that fly? Or voted to have chrome helmets?
This team can’t even vote to wear purple uni’s when they want.

Dabo is the leader and is expected to make decisions for the team.

To football issues.

It is important not to conflate these two. That is my main point.

When a stand on a social issue will most likely directly result in football issues, then logic must prevail for the sake of the organization.

Sadly it means more than Clemson. Again i state i believe 100 that black lives matter but the organization black lives matter is not about that. Read please the history. Its more about communism LBTQTXYZ and destroying the nuclear family. I can never send a .10 of 1 cent to that. If IPTAY or any other entity I give money to sends money to that i am out. 25 years down the drain.

It’s not about the sticker it’s the evil it represents.
I’m sure there are a few Republicans on the team and if they decide to wear a sticker that said keep America great .
Well they would be ruined and that’s the reason this organization is so bad .

Team and program, my assumption is that you were never really a TRUE fan to begin with.

Clemson has had racist awful players and coaches, and faculty of ALL races, but i will still stand by them.

That's what support means. Believing in something or someone despite the difficulties associated with said party.

Black lives matter is a movement and a slogan. There is also an organization called black lives matter. You can say black lives matter and support the slogan without supporting the organization called black lives matter. Of course many protest do both but our players saying/wearing BLM doesn't mean they support the organization. They may though I do not know.
