I never watched it much before but I refuse to watch it now. We have guys dying for what our flag represents, right now a Navy EOD Tech is in Houston being treated for injuries sustained while clearing IEDs in a hospital in Syria (Trump mentioned him in his SOTU speech). His life and his families lives are changed forever and we have these knuckleheads that have no clue kneeling. Being former EOD I keep up with the EOD community. https://www.earlybirdpaper.com/presiden ... tory-sotu/

Very good arrangement of priorities!

I blew off the NFL years ago over Rush Limbaugh’s treatment and Hank Williams Jr. treatment when he voiced his thoughts on Soetero.

The NFL could dry up and blow away, wouldn’t affect me in the least.

I've never been a sports guy. And I don't understand the appeal of watching someone else play a game. as a (video)gamer I'd rather play the game. Still

I echo Jeff B's summary sentiment. I pray that it does in fact blow away. Cause then maybe...

...Maybe this nation will put all that Football money back into things that benefit everyone besides the sports fans. Things like roads, bridges, un-leaded water pipes, In and After School Music Programs. Science , Technology, Engineering, and Math...

It’s interesting enough as a game. Plus my wife is from NE and went to games at Foxboro as a kid. And I am enough of a Cowboys fan to hate the Eagles.

So, any good movies on TV tonight?

Edit: never mind - I found Battle For Sevastopol, the story of Lyudmila Pavlichenko, the Russian woman sniper in WW2.

I went out to pilot point with my new sub 2000 and a few pistols. Put a big hole, and some smaller holes in a chunk of plywood.

Not watching either. Sitting watching movies with the family. The millionaires will still make their money without me and mine.

Philadelphia won, fans responded by riots and destroying businesses. Why would any city want to win a major league sports championship?


In fairness Houston and Dallas have won some championships and left the city intact. Some cities have real pride, others are crapholes.

It's not that simple, Greenbay, Minnesota, Even Boston and New York are better behaved than Places like Baltimore, St Louis, Memphis, or New Orleans. Certain cities are crap holes and its not just about Lattitude.

From press reports no kneeling.

Game audience was down 7% from year before, however 6th highest rated game. Have to go back to 2010 for a lower game.

Hard to not see glimpses. Went to dinner out, restaurant was almost empty. They had tons of TV's turned to the game. My wife and son watched the end after we got back. I worked in the basement.
