F Them! I hope professional sports implodes.
Theres that Giant sucking sound.
Prayer signaling. End of my interest in Giants.
Eff the NFL.
It’s already imploded.. anti-Americans kneeling, fake hate crimes, jersey slogans, team name changes.
I don’t know who’s worse the cancel movement or those caving in response.
It’s the pussification of America.
These rats can all kiss my ass.
Interesting. They don’t care about me, I’m an old white male, not exactly the key demographic. So, they’ll pander, while I watch golf and ignore their silly games. The loss of fans like me won’t hurt them over the short term. However, I won’t be encouraging my grandsons to watch the Cleveland Generic Non-offensives with me. Doesn’t seem like a good plan to keep a fan base?
What do I know? I don’t own a team. I will enjoy watching it all crash down though.
“I dont know whos worse the cancel movement or those caving in response.
Its the pussification of America.”
It would be better if they were caving in response. I think many in ownership embrace all this leftist nonsense.
The very rich understand that as a country moves left, the wealthy are relatively safe, and in many cases in a better position. Competition goes away. Just play ball with the party elite, and you’ll be just fine.
One would think that, sooner or later, you would run out of feet to shoot yourself in....
Pakistani American is SF Giants President of Baseball Operations
November 9, 2018
The SF Giants are not in the NFL. Not even a football team.
He’s representing the vast majority’s feelings in New York.
They're quite sick because they're perpetuating a lie against individuals and groups of people for money.
How bigoted of them...after all Jackie Robinson worked for.
I just phoned the Reds and asked them if I should expect this racist kneeling at Reds games. Up to each individual player was the response. POS leftists have to ruin everything. Fifty year love affair with MLB will end this week. Theres always non racist Japanese baseball.
If many other teams do this they better get used to playing games without fans in the stands.
The clown manager lives in one the most vile, leftist cities in America by choice. Should we be surprised?
“This latest virtue skidding is just an attempt to stem the decline.”
Precisely and it will have the absolute opposite effect. The average baseball fan demographics are moderately conservative beer drinking 30, 40, and 50 year old’s who our pro 2nd ammendment, lean libertarian but have an abiding respect for the traditional and despise the mixing of politics with their beloved sport.
It will start with pay to watch premium packages, then season ticket sales and trickle down to overall stadium attendance. They’re cutting their own throat.
Another bunch of adults who make a living playing a kid’s game that I will not be watching this summer.
Another bunch of disrespectful ingrates...
