Folks..i know i'm old & out of the modern loop But too many of our Sports Stars have taken over

the dialogue of what is right & wrong, in their opinion, politically or socially or religion-wise..and they are able to do this since we adore & almost worship them..over-playing them in too many instances with millions per year..and make them heros when they are simply highly talented humans playing a Sport.

We fans at Clemson & at the majority of colleges with a highly successful & winning sports program are guilty too of idolizing very average individuals who are gifted in a sports way..

and as such they are not more OR less qualified to make judgements on what is right or wrong..and thus I have the right to join, protest or ignore their stiff-arming or overpowering stances on their personal dialogue concerning non-sports issues when i cut on the tube to simply see a sports game..a sport which they should play and leave the personal issues for the proper forum to complain or spout off about.

Keep it up & I will tune out 110%!

To All CLEMSON TiGERS..Sending you Bright Light from the Carolina Coast and hoping you get to witness a huge Orange sunset tonight. Go Tigers!


What worries me is what is bad for the NFL is

Bad for Clemson, kids don't come here to play to get an education, not really good ones anyway, they come to go into the NFL. It's bad news all the way around and I hope it goes away and fast.


Deshaun Watson and many other Tigers in the pros got their degree..

I am the opposite of you. I hope Deshaun Watson makes a couple hundred million and plays for 15 years. I hope all of our Clemson players make a fortune in the NFL and have great lives. I bet 10's of thousands of people have jobs because of the NFL

We elected a silver-spoon reality-TV star to the office of President, but professional athletes can't express political opinions?


I Get it BUT protesting b/4 or during a game isn't their role!

Nor is your president's role to engage in Twitter wars when there are bigger, more pressing issues to be dealt with.

Funny how many on the right say that whenever somebody trashes Bush or Trump but had no problem trashing Clinton or Obama. And how many on the left took offense when people talked trash about Obama or Clinton, but think it's okay to go after Bush and Trump. I guess that rule only applies when it's YOUR guy in office.


So you are trying to equate protesting on...

Twitter to protesting during the National Anthem???... REALLY????

No wonder we have so many that don't comprehend respect, allegiance, and servitude to the one thing we ALL share - male, female, 'trans', gay, black, white, yellow, purple, etc.

I understand that you don't like the president's habit of using twitter. But your assumption that he is not addressing the pressing matters of our country because of it would be incorrect. Just look at what he has been doing whether you agree with it or not. Health care - it's broken and he is trying to fix it through Congress. Not a easy thing to do. Immigration - Congress has kicked the can down the road for 30 years. He is enforcing the laws as written and trying to protect our borders. He is also trying to get Congress to pass immigration reform. Good Luck. The economy - he is addressing trade agreements that are terrible for our country and reducing regulation to enable businesses to function. Energy - He enabled the Keystone pipeline to be completed which will provide affordable energy and reduce the price of foreign oil. Military - He has enabled the military to be the military. No longer does the pentagon have to get permission from the President to plant a missile on a terrorist. Taxes - He is trying to pass tax reform that will allow small businesses to not be taxed at individual rates which are much higher that corporate taxes. He is also trying to simplify the tax code. And he has done this and more in just 8 months. You may not agree with what he has done. You might not like his personality. But he has been tending to the nation's business.


The NFL is pissing off its base, and will regret it, Billy***

Bill, pretty much everyone has their own opinions on these topics, the only difference is they have better access to the media.

I tuned out to politics a while ago. It's circus that I do not have room for in my life. I might suggest that anyone who has room in their life for such tripe probably has too much unproductive time on their hands.

If I'm hanging out on the P&R bored, it's because I'm board.
