#1 Being a white NBA fan is so Jack Nicholson yesterday now. For lib whites, mouthing BLM pieties is the coin of the realm now. It's easy, cheap and takes less time. For now...

#2 Tow their line? That's their right. And its mine to put them on the shelf. Goodby NBA, and sadly, MLB.

#3 Interesting that only Breitbart is reporting this so far. The rest of the media want to give them time hoping people come back? or just didn't realize those games were on?

#4 I sh*tcanned the NFL after foolishness with kneeling started. Never watched the joke that is the NBA and am now dumping MLB. Hope the NHL keeps its standards and can’t help noticing the absence of the fractious people in the other leagues. Might be a hint there. Playing the race card with me now just pisses many people like me off and eventually advertising rate decline with awaken the profit motive in businesses that employ troublesome workers that do that to us.

#5 NHL had one person take a knee. A Filipino/German fellow born in Canada playing for an American team.

Not sure where I saw it, but came across a story about the Florida Marlins cancelling their next 2 weeks of game or something, because players have the WuFlu or meflu.

Sorry, Miami Marlins, whatever.

#9 Sports are entertainment. People want to relax and enjoy themselves and be entertained in their off-hours especially if they are paying The high prices of cable. The last thing they want is a bunch self-rigtheous "woke" assholes pontificating and raising their consiousness. Good-bye ESPN, NFL, NBA, MLB, NASCAR and SJW jerks.

#10 Great, now let's hope the ratings go to ZERO. And the same for the National Felons League.

I enjoyed the hockey feast over the weekend...possibly the most pathetic out of the pro sports was English football/soccer. Even the refs took a knee and they had BLM patches (spelled out) on their jerseys.

#11 Decades ago, I was a rabid sports dog. Die hard support for the local teams. I finally went to aversion therapy, like for smoking, that make so sick of it you can't bear to hear about. Haven't watched any of it in about 25 of so years, and don't miss it.
The aversion therapy group I went to was the Houston Oilers. If they couldn't break ya, you couldn't be broke.

#12  the Florida Marlins cancelling their next 2 weeks of game or something, because players have the WuFlu or meflu.

Mr. Wife says it is indeed Florida Marlins, and he thinks 13 players were diagnosed with the thing plus another half dozen or so team personnel. (He does come in handy, even lying prostrate on the couch after spending a few too many hours today continuing to cut up the mature black locust that fell unheard in our little woods. Hopefully tomorrow will see the thing complete.)

#13 Can't leave those things (the locusts) lying around long or you're liable to be overrun by the giant ants.
