I am watching NASCAR.
The Bronco game is coming on and I tuned in early to see if there were any kneelers.
They did not show any of the National Anthem part, just the game.
Is that still going on or have they come to their senses and realized that people don't want to watch a bunch of ingrates that do not respect their country out to play a game for lots of $$$.
Back to NASCAR now.
I don't want to watch the NFL anymore and have sold my season tickets.
I hope they wake up some day and realize that without that Flag and all it represents, that they would not be out there to entertain us.
Go get a job in the ghetto that pays as good as what you have in the NFL.
I don't understand their thinking or what they are protesting.

    So what has Colin accomplished?

    Cost himself a great paying job.

    Cost the NFL at least 20% of its fan base.

    Further divided the nation.

    Nice fucking work, Kaperdink, now go take a hot bath and open yor veins. Maybe youll get some sympathy.

    The last I had heard, the networks had said they would no longer show the anthem. Their way to put a bandaid on a gushing artery...

    Football sucked anyway. I was bored by the fifth inning in most games.

    Lost interest in NASCAR when they made all cars identical so that there was no racing... just a drive soap opera.

    So I'll just keep watching old documentaries and restoring cannons and working in my shop weekends. But I still won't buy a $#@ing thing that they advertise on NFL.

    Unless someone starts advertising Goex and Hornady on NFL.... and even then... if they advertise on NFL, I'll switch to DuPont or set up my own powder mill.

    Cheers,

    Sirhr

    NASCAR needs to bring back "rubbing is racing". Too many of the newer drivers would shit having to go up against someone old school like Earnhardt SR. Either move or be moved.

    It's also funny how fans complained the points system was too difficult to follow. So they change it for a few years and now back to some crazy ass algebra, Trig, mojo system with a bracket system to try and push a bracket system like College basketball.

    If you have to try THAT hard to get and keep fans interested, you're doing something wrong.

    That's why I don't watch NASCAR any more.

    Group B rallying hell yes ! New WRC cars are very well behaved
    and easy to drive in comparison . Some form of motorsport with
    modern safety equipment , big HP and precious little grip would
    get my attention . Not drifting though ( it’s really powersliding ) ,
    watched a local event event recently , I was bored pretty quickly .

    I have completely stopped supporting the NFL over this crap.

    It’s really annoying that the snowflakes have to get involved in everything.

    Some are still kneeling, and most if not all networks are not showing the anthem, in an attempt to hide the problem.
    Last week NBC didn't air the prayer and anthem at the NASCAR race, in an obvious attempt to appear consistent in not airing the NFL anthems. I think it backfired, and NASCAR fans gave them Hell about it it.
    At first, I said I'd watch a team if they didn't kneel, but after the league itself has failed to deal with the problem properly, I say fuck them all.
    I sincerely hope that they continue to lose revenues to the point that they'll beg forgiveness.

    Even if every single player, coach, manager, executive, official & commissioner all threw themselves on the ground & begged for forgiveness I’’d still not watch another NFL game. I’ll not forgive their disrespect to my / our flag.

    The NFL is dead to me. I have not watched any of it and sold my Bronco's season tickets.
    I did enjoy watching NBCSN this summer as they had the National Motorcycle Flat Track series on.
    Being an OLD flatracker myself I thought it sure is not like the days when I rode.
    The tracks are really prepped and no one out on the edge in a full lock slide in the dirt and weeds.
    Still better than watching the Kneeling Gars who don't even know what they are protesting about.
    They are a bunch of overpaid snowflakes as far as I am concerned. I think they just follow along with whatever the one next to them does. Go get a job in the ghetto that pays as well and report back to me as to how that worked out for you.
    I wish TV would show them during the Anthem instead of just sweeping it under the rug.
    No matter, I have seen all I need to know to form my opinion. FUKM. FM

    As soon as the World Series is over I'll be anxiously awaiting for the next season of MLB. Football sucks, basketball sucks, and I can only watch hockey if I'm at a game.

    Correct answer: Not only do I not know who that is, I also don't give a fuck

    So one guy kneels twice and lies about service at a restaurant, and you swear off the entire league? You're a special kind of stupid aren't you. At least the problem isn't systemic in baseball.

    I'm stupid? I'm not the one who cares about grown men playing ball games.

    I don't like watching baseball very much. Kind of like watching grass grow or paint dry to me. Not enough action for me to sit there and watch it.
    I understand those that do like it and when I was young I loved to play but that was Little League and many years ago.
    I would hope that the other players on the Kneeler's team would jerk him aside and explain to him that they did not want to go down the road that the NFL has paved. Something to the affect,"We are going to lose fan base and in turn, money in our pockets. Grow up fool."
    It is hurting them all and if they don't realize that then they are a special kind of stupid. Nip this shit in the bud.
    Jerk him to his feet and escort him off of the field to the locker room and let the next guy up in that position take his place. He is nothing special, only a fool in my opinion.
    Regards, FM

    Threadcutter, I agree. They make flat track look tame.
    Next thing you know they will be putting in restricter plates on the bikes to slow them down.
    I hope that does not happen. FM
