  1. Who's boycotting the Super Bowl?

    You’re quite an unpleasant little fellow aren’t you? I’m done trying to have a civil discussion with you. Go in peace my friend.
  2. Happy for Charlie. That kid deserves it.
  3. Who's boycotting the Super Bowl?

    So now I’m a snowflake in addition to being a moron? That’s rich. I’m reluctant to give your I’ll-mannered discourse further attention, but I’ll go ahead and attempt to briefly support my stance. My dad served in the Army during WWII and fought in Europe under miserable conditions to secure freedoms many of us take for granted. My father-in-law served in the Navy, also during WWII. He was torpedoed off his ship in the North Atlantic and floated alone for almost a day wondering if he would ever be rescued. My brother served as a Marine fighter pilot during the Vietnam war era. Each of these men taught me to honor our flag and our anthem and the values they represent. I honor the flag to honor them and the men and women like them who protect and serve our country. I also have a nephew, three cousins and numerous friends who serve as law enforcement officers. They put their lives on the line every day when they go to work (unlike most of us desk jockeys). The horrible things they have to deal with on daily basis are unimaginable to most of us. It’s a thankless job but they do it because they want to make a difference. Of course there are bad actors who do horrendous things while wearing a badge. However, they are the exception, rather than the rule. Kaepernick wearing pig socks to paint my family and friends with one broad brush is unacceptable to me. So yes, I don’t spend my time or hard earned money to line the pockets of millionaires who disrespect the symbols that I honor. Instead of being weak-minded, I’d like to think instead I’m being patriotic. In today’s world, that seems to be a dirty word. I really have not enjoyed boycotting pro football. I have been a die-hard fan my whole life and played football myself through college. However, just as I respect the right of the protestors to make their protests, I hope others can respect my right to counter protest without name calling and disrespectful rhetoric.
  4. Who's boycotting the Super Bowl?

    I’m boycotting. I love football but I don’t appreciate our flag and anthem being disrespected. I’m curious why, in your opinion, this makes me a “complete moron.”

    Epic ballgame. Two tourney teams.

    Thank you! Much appreciated!

    I don’t have ESPNU. Anyone have a link?
  8. Question for BYU fans

    Not a BYU fan, but I don’t see them ever returning to the MWC. Too much pride to come crawling back. My guess is they will soon join the AAC and try to convince two of our better programs to join them.
