Re: So No NFL; What About College?


I can't stand Alabama and my buddy was coached by Dabo.

Hoping Clemson brings it to them, friggin SEC and their arrogant asses.

I broke my 2 year NFL ban too. I got 2 free tickets for the last Bucs game and my son has been begging me to go since the beginning of the year. It was well worth it. I could have continued to make a statement about the NFL but I'd rather make a memory with my boy.

F*** Bama. LOL.

If Colt hadn't gotten hurt on the first drive y'all would have less one ring

That being said I'm rooting for Alabama, I like their quarterback. I like open Christians who are not chicken**** to show it

You ****ed me, Rob!

I gave up tonight's game for Dallas in my ban. Good seats. F*** the NFL and Rodger Goodell. Enforce rules, puss.

I think it would be more interesting if the playoffs were 8 teams, the 5 power conference champs and 3 at large. Baka and Clemson are great teams but itís getting to repetitive.

I never watched a lot of football and don't have cable, but it comes on Amazon Prime at no additional charge.
Haven't watched even a part of a game since the kneeling.

I caved last Super Bowl. I have a 75-inch TV in my living room, in a 55 on my back porch. My dad really wanted to have it in my house. His team is the Patriots and they were playing. I will not tell him no.

Only NFL that has been played here since the kneeling.

I could have been in Cowboys Stadium tonight when they won the playoff game. Really wish I had been there

I have played football since I was six years old until I was 18. I love the game, have always been a fan.

The only reason I have not turned it on is when my daughter asked why I do not have my friends over on Sunday to watch football, I told her because the man in charge of the games do not have integrity.

My daughter's understand integrity. More than I can say for the NFL commissioner in the owners who allow this s***. I do not blame the players

Other than that want to be Kaepernick, most of them are from a bad neighborhood, uneducated and been pushed through their whole lives. They have also been taught they are put upon. I don't blame it on them. Only someone who doesn't understand the situation would

Not to get real political, but...I don't buy that. I understand what you are saying...I just don't buy it.

If that were the case, we'd be blaming someone else for the violence that goes on off the field.

Politicians, entertainers and others cheered them on. They didn't grow up in bad neighborhoods.

We are on the same page. I'm not talking about violent s*** here. I'm talking about uneducated people thinking they are making a difference taking a knee.

Trying to explain to someone who has a third grade education why they are disrespecting everything did the country they live in stands for by taking that knee, does no good. And that is the fault of ourselves for allowing certain people to be in charge of our education system. Which is why I spend the equivalent of a mortgage on a nice house on private education where they teach fundamental values instilled by our founding fathers.

Greed....on everyone's part...anyone that has anything to do with any professional sport....greed.

Pure and simple.

And yes, before some idiot comes in and says the founding fathers fundamental values say you can take that knee. I understand that. So does my nine-year-old daughter.

Doesn't mean you should

Not true. I did a remodel for a quarterback of a two-time Super Bowl championship team. That guy understands the value of this country and what it means. He is not greedy, and he was not well paid in my opinion for what he did.

He did it because he loved it.

Greed on the agents part...greed on the owners part...greed on MOST players part...greed on the networks part...greed on the parking lot owners part.

You know what I mean.

The whole thing has become way overpriced...at every level.

Well that QB said his GM ****ed him.

So I guess so

My issue with your statement is when you say professional sports, it's no different than any other business. Some retard on my plumbers crew could say that I am greedy. I am not. I am offering a job to them for money. What I make and what they make for the same house makes no difference.

Well...I think the overall sport is suffering, and not just because of the kneeling.

Things have gotten out of hand and people see it.

I don't even know...what's it cost to take a family of 4 to a decent game and buy some dogs, some beverages and park the car...$500?

People are seeing just what A LOT of the players are made of and it's not real impressive.

The whole package has gotten out of hand on many fronts.

If you're gonna compare plumbing to the NFL...I can compare kneeling to off-field violence....
