I really hate seeing football being used to further agendas

In any way. Political or otherwise. I just want to see football. When i see players kneeling or stickers all over their helmets or whatever, i turn off the tv and go find something else to do. It doesnt teach me or show me anything. The only thing it communicates to me is how much i need to do around the house.

And lebron James is a great player but i dont give two cents about his political views or whatever. Same goes for most of Hollywood.

Sigh....


Less football but a tidier garage and much trimmer hedges.

They’ll show up and burn your garage and hedges down.

You don’t deserve to have those nice things anyway.

Likely a bad idea to show up at my house with ill intentions as I am too old to fight with my fists. I would be glad to have friendly conversation over a cold beverage

If things keep going the way they are going,you won't have to worry about football being used to further agenda's.
In fact you won't have to worry about football at all.Fewer people will be able to afford to attend games,television viewer ship will dry up, seasons reduced to as many as 10 games,or less,smaller colleges,and even some small universities will have to scale back roster sizes,scholarships allowed,the # of players who can travel to games,and so on.
Some may even have to shut down their program altogether.
But don't blame the agenda,blame the persons behind it;namely the Left.
And you want to know what Lebron and Hollywood have in common.there agenda is fueled by the Left.

Hey leftie,

I am a leftie and I go to all of the secret meetings. Lots of us love football, too. We all agree that the people can enjoy a more fair and just society AND sports.


So you didn't watch our game on Saturday?

That's too bad, we have a really good team and it looks like you'll miss the entire season.

Influential public figures of the sport will publically support the agenda by parroting the messages(talking points) or be gaslit by the media-

Awareness? Or honor the troops?

So really what you're saying is, you hate when they further agendas you don't like? Maybe you should change your username to "Snowflakes"

Let me ask you something. When is a right time to elevate awareness? Protest are not meant to be convenient ..it is meant to create uncomfortableness. And since the majority of the athletes in the NBA , NFL and MLB are minorities they are using a platform that is very visible to the Majority to make their message heard.

Another thing...this is not a political issue this is a natural human rights issue. Everyone should be equal under the law and respected as a man equally. Just 3 years ago there was a video of Clemson fans calling Deshaun Watson a Ni$$Er. And I am sure there are more...and these other people are Policemen, politicians , teachers..u name it. So instead of complaining..get on the pavement and stomp it out. If you know family members or friends who are prejudice...stop them . Do not remain silent because silence is advocation.

I want to congratulate you. Your thesis is that "everyone should be equal under the law and respected as a man equally." My thumbs up got you up to 40% here! That tells you an enormous amount about the level of trash that works its way through this message board.

BLM is the new KKK. If equal, then a player can put the latter on their helmet. No harm done right?
Both are EQUALLY offensive and should not be found on a Clemson Tiger uniform.

Please explain. I mean maybe we missed the time when BLM bombed a church killing 4 little girls or lynched black men or dragged a black man behind a pickup truck or any other violent act done by the KKK. Your attempt to compare the two exposes the need for people to think before speaking and stop believing everything that is given to you. Try researching topics through multiple sources prior to posting some as dumb as this.

In unrelated news, I remember when I was a kid we had a kid in the neighborhood named Stevie that would run in the house and go to his mommy every time somebody said something mean to him. And for the avoidance of doubt, I am not saying that this is analogous to turning your TV off when you see something you don’t like.

If a lot of you don't like to have a group of student/athletes who are socially active and aware in service of a just cause, then don't go to the #### games, don't watch them on TV and shut up and do your yard work or whatever it is that you do on Saturday. I plan to to continue to follow Clemson with a sense of pride that our guys are thinking people whose lives are more than football. If a good percentage of people give up following Clemson football for the reason I see listed on here, we're a darn sight better off without them. Maybe a good house cleaning will serve us well and I assure you, that those people who fall away will not be missed in the slightest.

Totally agree I came to watch a football game not a political rally. I got better things to do on Saturday. It opens your eyes up to what you should and should not accept. People who want to watch FOOTBALL should not accept this anymore!

a 3 and a half hour game of football because of 5 minutes of political stuff that makes you squirm.

Skin so thin that even an eyelash could cause a prick. Which, if you think about it, is fitting.

“When i see players kneeling or stickers all over their helmets or whatever, i turn off the tv ......”

Wow, duck and run. All u guys turning off the TV are a bunch of pansies. Toughen up a little cornflake. I hope u don’t run into corn pop. That might not turn out well. In the meantime, it might be safer for you to stay in your basement. And when u hear / see something on TV that you don’t like, just change the channel, or better yet turn the TV off, that will really get ‘em. In the meantime, I gonna watch every second of every Clemson Football game this year as they roll to another national championship. In fact, I’ll probably rewatch most every game more than once.
