    I was glad to see that. I was prepared to turn off the game. And what a game it was!

    LOL! The NFL ratings have dropped significantly since the kneeling idiocy. Money talks.

    Trump is leading and he is making the nation better.

    But I don't think it was he that kept players off their knees.

    I think it was NFL paying off radical racist hate groups like BLM and likely even some players themselves.

    Losing about 30% of your overall revenue makes for some to start acting like adults.

    I still did not watch the Super Bowl. The NFL needs to stop being political and just play the damn game. Folks get enough of the politics and need an escape from that lunacy.

    I did not watch either. Their past history of knelling BS prevented it.

    This was worth making a thread about?

    I watched it, and was going to watch it either way. Yeah, I don't like kneeling, but it doesn't change the fact that it is still football and it was the superbowl.

    If you didn't watch it, you missed a great game.

    Yep, what it shows is that when Trump bellows, his lemmings follow in lockstep and turn off the TV. Then, the NFL is forced to impede free speech because money talks and they don't want to lose revenue.

    As to the NFL: unfortunately, my son likes and plays football. Me, I am not so fond of a sport that has grown men running into each other head first, later in their 50s to 60s ending either as depressed vegetables, or suicidal or homicidal maniacs due to the hundreds of micro-concussions sustained early in life.

    Only illiberals look for ways to shut down free speech. So says Kirsten Powers the Clinton Democrat that wrote a book on it and the illiberals methods.

    Again, illiberals best methods come from mocking what they don't like with the criticism that something isn't worth talking about. Got to find a way to shut it down, Right?

    *shrugs* Not to you, but it might to others. It doesn't appear to violate any PF rules. I mean, there was a thread a page back about Trump not giving an interview regarding the Super Bowl, and I didn't see the big deal over that either - but clearly other people did, so I stayed out. It isn't for me to tell people what they should and should not care about, any more than it is for anyone else.

    Come on, you don't wanna end up like AJ who spends his entire existence trolling threads with nothing but "Who cares?"

    He doesn't really need to. All you need to know is evidently some do care.
