I want my sports BACK!

I swear.  These leftists will politicize ANYTHING.

Gone are the days where you had Michael Jordan abstaining from politics because “Republicans buy tennis shoes too.”

It’s not enough that Roy Williams dreamed up a “scheduling conflict” to snub Donald Trump.  Never mind that it’s costing his players the chance of a lifetime — to visit the president at The White House.  (I’ve been in The Oval Office while the president was in the room.  Twice.  Once while there was a Democrat, and once while there was a Republican. Those are experiences I’ll never forget.)

Denying those kids a great opportunity like that just to earn some kudos from the faculty lounge in Chapel Hill is nothing short of disgusting.  I’d be willing to bet there are more than a few Trump fans / Republicans buying those season tickets in the Dean Dome and filling the coffers of the Rams Club.  It’s just like those arrogant pricks in Hollywood and the driveby media — spitting in the face AND bitting the hand of the people who feed you. 

Let’s not forget the prima donnas who get paid millions a year to play a kid’s game.  We’ve got major league baseball players taking a knee during the national anthem.  We’ve got NBA players calling the president names and boycotting The White House.  Of course, there was an avalanche of anthem protests during today’s NFL games.  (What kind of low-lifes do you have to be to disrespect your own country while on foreign soil?) 

Again, it’s HARD to have sympathy for anyone making millions a year for playing a kid’s game.  There are not a lot of other countries where that could happen.  Nosirree.  Not in Africa.  Not in Central or South America.

THIS is what lowering admission standards in college and steering said “student athletes” toward African-American Studies and other victimhood indoctrination curriculum has earned us.

If these people truly hate this country, they are more than welcome to move to Africa and bask in the warmth of war, famine, poverty and disease.  (Maybe Sally Struthers will come along and shoo the flies away from their faces.) 

If they are going to thumb their noses at the greatest country on Earth, I plan to thumb my nose right back at them. ESPN will not darken my TV screen again.  Not one Clifton dime will go toward athletic tickets of any kind — college or pro.  NFL on Fox?  I think not.

Hollywood is experiencing nightmarish box office numbers after years of spitting in the faces of mainstream America — who they depend on to view their movies and provide an income stream. Insult your customers and you lose business.  That’s capitalism.  That’s life.

Maybe we need to teach that lesson to the imbeciles in the American sports world.

  1. The leftists plot to rid us of football, thereby the last display a public patriotism, is moving along right on schedule.

  2. I am not only done with the NFL, but also the ACC. Their engaging in corporate bullying against NC on HB2 is something I will never forget nor forgive. They can get stuffed.

  3. You will quickly find out how easy it is to not watch sports. I used to be a huge NASCAR fan but I no longer watch the sport. Not because of politics but more the gimmicks and the overall wussification of the sport. Last year, I pretty much stopped watching the Panthers because they were so bad and now the NFL has made be cement my position to not watch any more. There are plenty of other sports out there to watch other than the NBA and NFL. I have tended to watch other motor sports as they just race the cars and do not talk politics. If these players want to insult us, lets just hit them in their pocketbook….my bet is when it costs the league some hard cash then this idiocy will stop.

  4. How many of the protesting pros say that they “hate this country”???
    Your own link regarding UNC Basketball states that “the university and White House tried “eight or nine” dates but none worked.” Where do you get that Roy Williams was against such a trip???

  5. #LowEducationSports while Americas kids are distracted by sports, kids in Asian countries are becoming engineers #RemoveSportsFromSchools

    1. Spending money on cleats and helmets just ain’t cutting it; money is better spent on books.

      The pros just need to shut up and play– before they have no audience watching their performance.

  6. According to a new poll, most Americans agree with you, Brant. 80% say they do not want politics with their sports.

    http://remingtonresearchgroup.com/surveys/NFL_9-25-17.pdf

    64% say that players should stand and be respectful for the national anthem, and that number does not change when President Trump’s name is added to the poll question.

    50% say they are less likely to watch an NFL game due to the players taking a knee and 51% say they already watch less NFL, mostly for that reason.
