    Default So who boycotted the NFL on opening day?

    I know I did. Wasn't easy as a huge fan, and other sports non-existent or sucks. But not until they change back.

    The Steelers played the NY Giants last evening. Apparently I'm reading that some on the Giants defense were kneeling for the anthem. No one from the Steelers were kneeling and all stood, but were holding a banner:



    So not fond of Giants kneeling, and while Steelers all stood up, I don't want to see massive messages during a game. Still better than kneeling during the anthem.

    They also earlier had another anthem now pegged as the black national anthem. The Steelers remained in the locker room and the Giants players all stood in the end zone.

    That's about all I know from the below article. Then I went and looked at statistics and highlights on a Steelers private forum I visit. I hope it comes back as it was as I truly love watching football. But leave it at a game and about sports.

    5 teams remained in the locker room during the anthem. Seattle showed out on the field on the 1st play, the kickoff. No one moved an inch after the kick, and then both teams dropped to their knee. Around the NFL many locked arms, raised fists, armbands.

    Steelers Stand For Anthem, Hold Banner That Reads 'Steelers Against Racism'

    PITTSBURGH (93.7 The Fan) - The Steelers made a statement during the National Anthem right before the beginning of their Monday night opener against the New York Giants.

    The team lined up, all standing, holding a banner that read "Steelers Against Racism."

    There were questions whether or not players would kneel during the anthem, but all of the players stood while unveiling the sign.

    The black and white banner and all of the Steelers players names on either side of it.

    Ben Roethlisberger, Cam Heyward and T.J. Watt were among the players in the middle of the line.

    No fans are in attendance at Metlife Stadium and the phrase, "End Racism" was painted in the back of one of the end zones.

    The Steelers also have the name of police shooting victim Antwon Rose Jr. on the back of their helmets.

    I watched off and on, as usual, in between installing new gutters.

    By that display they are saying that they support the BLM MOVEMENT--thus support the violence that it so happily uses.
    In other words, they cower, they plead, they beg to be allies with criminal,subversive elements(BLM) that are engaged in the wanton destruction of -ALL- police-- ALL white law. Thus -ALL- established rule of law-- and thereby all justice..
    One can sum that up with-- the blacks demand that they get to -RULE-- NOW! That is -RULE over whites...
    BLM is a terrorist entity that actively and criminally attacks innocent whites, and seeks to destroy the nation as it was founded.
    BLM, should and must be held accountable, they all should be arrested-and as well arrest their ffing allies.
    Why of how so few see this reality this truth totally confounds me.
    I thank God that I was educated before the public school system went into the liberal/socialist crapper......
    This was timed to be during the presidential election cycle because they knew Trump would be doomed if he uses troops, and doomed in a way if he lets it just go on...
    And both are correct. They blame Trump- and millions ignorantly agree with that lie.
    But if he sends in military- they get to ramp it up- start a war- and claim that Trump is a dictator attempting to seize the government, destroy the nation.
    Every word of this post is true.
    The dem party, the media , the globalists are all in on doing this.. A fact.. -Tyr

    Us. Didn’t even think about it.
    Happy to say that Russ told me his office Fantasy league wasn’t popular this year either.

    The ratings all the way around in sports and the leagues doing this same thing, all their ratings are taking a hit. I think it's clear, whether folks agree with messages or not, they don't want to tune into it when watching sports.

    Dunno about others but sports is kind of an escape for many.
