    Not to hijack, but why again was the politics section removed?

    :rolleyes: This guy on the comments section of that article sums it up perfectly: "Sports and politics don’t mix. Sports are supposed to be fun and politics are a buzz kill. It’s like bring your mother in law along for your honeymoon."

    It's very simple start your own political party, the protests are a waste of time, if you want change don't rely on others

    If a tree falls in the forest and no one hears it, does it make a sound??

    If there was no attention to this type of thing, would anyone care??

    You can't, the debates commission is run by the two major parties and will never let another in.

    I still don't 100% buy what Long gave for his reasons for leaving. Not liking how he was used is a good reason but for that to be the sole reason doesn't make sense to me

    I seem to recall McCourty raising a fist last year and he's still on the team.

    Maybe The Star Spangled Banner shouldn't be played before professional sports events. Or maybe just played on special days, like Memorial Day, 4th of July, etc

    To me it didn't make much sense to take time to honor my country before watching a game. Especially when I was about to spend the next few hours yelling, cursing and spewing evilness towards fellow Americans like Bill Laimbeer, Ray Lewis, and Roger Clemens when he was with The Yankees
