I’m done

Well baseball season is underway and so is the kneeling. Not that I cared all that much about following along but I used to root on the Pirates. Got tired of watching them loose so much. Thing is, even if I was interested in watching or listening to a game on occasion, I will not do it because of the disrespect for the flag and all it stands for. Football will probably start up one way or another and although I am a Steelers fan, if the same shenanigans start there, which I expect to happen, then I will no longer watch or listen to those games either. Maybe if enough people would tune out the owners might clamp down and refuse to let them do it. Have to let the owners take a financial hit. Might be the only way. Well that leaves hockey. At least for now. Go Pens!

    IF ENOUGH OF US DONT TUNE IN THE ADVERTISERS WILL OFFFER LESS MONEY AS WILL THE STATIONS CARRYING THE GAMES- 
     
    They bring it on themselves- also take a look at the slogans to appear on their game clothing.
     
    Ya wanna watch a game- not visually participate in their politics.

    I'm with you both I'm totally done with sports and its a combination of things that bother me.The kneeling for sure but even more so is their more important than everyone else like their a essential workers.They make millions and won't take a pay cut,they can resume their normal way of life during this pandemic and rest of the country gets shut down ,and millions lose their jobs.And why are they being tested every day when noone else can do that,there really are essential workers that need tested with a fast turn around time but not a ball player! I won't miss them at all

    Simple solution: don’t televise the protest gestures.

    Irish I agree. With empty stadiums, no better time to "grandstand". What's to lose?

    If ever there was a need for a "name change", professional sports should be changed to "commercialised sports".

    By the way, I saw Dr. Fauci throw out the first pitch at the start of some game. WOW !! What an arm.

    The Pirates will have him in the starting rotation by mid season.

    The poster formally known as Duncsdad

    Everything I say can be fully substantiated by my own opinion.

    The Succos could probably use him in the bullpen. The Yuccaneers haven't been a major league baseball team in many years. Tuned out along time ago.

    Baseball... hotdogs... apple pie....  and mud in your eye.   Baseball fans must sit at home as Dr Falsie grandstands, while with his wife and very good friend,  rehydrates as they watch the game,  sitting in stadium seats.
     
    Speaking of fans sitting at home, anyone know, if season ticket holders as well as pregame ticket purchases are being reimbursed?
     
    Dang... I'm wrong again.  I should have said 'a crock of mud' in your eye.
     
    As they say in the ole country....  PLAY BALL !!!!
     
     
    In other news.....  anyone know how the walleye stocking is going on the local lakes???

    Anyone aware of the changes being implemented for the upcoming NFL season? All I gotta say is , I’m surprised they are going so far in the name of social justice. I don’t plan on attending any games and don’t plan on watching any on TV. Thanks NFL for ruining it for so many fans that just wanted to sit back and enjoy a game and get away from all the craziness that is going on, 24/7, via the various news sources.

    I'd like to see all the owner's of these professional sports team, sell the teams to the players, and have them see if they can make a go of it doing this type of crap. I walked away years ago.

    Good for you. In my case, better late than never.
