Cue the TigerNet Outrage Machine

Posted: Jul 30, 2020 12:57 PM

"The NCAA Playing Rules Oversight Panel approved rules to allow student-athletes in all sports to wear patches on their uniforms for commemorative and memorial purposes, as well as to support social justice issues."

I'll hang up and listen now.

Or the other extreme and dont watch college. I'm not into politics. Sports though has become less and less of an escape than it once was. You at least had college sports but with this measure and the payment for use of likeness coming college becomes just a another league. I can see the interest of some folks falling off as a result.


I will have to say that the black lives matter patches on

the soccer uniforms has not bothered me one bit! Nor has the 20-second group kneel/moment of silence. Not sure why the pro football players feel they need to do it during the national anthem. It could be done sans-anthem as a moment of silence before the game and they could not possibly be offending folks for the various reasons doing it during the anthem is inappropriate.

The sole mission of kneeling during the anthem is to offend,

if there is no anthem being played, they wouldn't be offensive and that is counter productive to their actual goal...It's quite simple really

I must admit I do not like this and I hope it happens on a limited basis.

I have lost all interest in pro sports. Sports IMO is supposed to be a way to get away from life's daily struggles. Pro sports have been ruined by the infiltration of politics. I do not want to hear a pro athlete or Hollywood actor complain about things.

It is said that if you do not like it you do not have to watch it. So I choose not to watch.

I have absolutely nothing against people voicing their opinion on matters. I do however, have a problem when my opinion no longer matters and I am viewed as insensitive on some matters because I do not agree with someone.

I will always be a Tiger and proud of it. I will never stop watching the Tigers because Clemson being a part of my life means more than any stupid pro team because Clemson helped make me who I am today at 49 years of age. I love Clemson!

I do hope politics stay out of college athletics, but I know it will not as this is not the world we live in today.

Sweet. Football players will look like nascar drivers
