    I don’t watch sports to get involved with social issues.

    Plus BLM “the organization “ is a socialist political activist group.

    They don’t give a rats about black lives.

    I don’t care for kneeling for the national anthem either.

    Too bad, I am a huge soccer fan.

    Politics aside the best reason to turn it off is because the only thing they were going to do is play soccer.

    Pro sports have been ruined short term. I’m not watching a groveling political activist sports game with no fans.

    It’s a shame your hatred for black people supersedes your love of soccer, but good on you for your dedication to the cause

    Joey Votto and other Reds players kneeled before their game today as well. You can expect displays of support for BLM at many sporting events for the foreseeable future. Glad to hear you and the other snowflakes will no longer be watching sports.

    I won't be watching any sports where the players kneel for the National Anthem. It is their right to do it and it is my right to not watch. What they fail to realize is they are hurting themselves by doing so. My mother, brother, and uncle are all huge baseball fans. They get the MLB package every year so they have access to every game. All of them will be cancelling it if they see players kneeling. I will not be watching so that is 4 households lost in just one family. Multiply this across America and the attendance, sponsorships and advertisement money will begin to decline and when that happens, player's contracts will as well. Sports is a business and they fail to realize that.

    I haven't had NFL Sunday ticket since Kapernick kneeled and I don't have to watch baseball or basketball either.

    I saw no hate in his post. I didn’t even get “hate” from any negative connotations his post elicited.

    You came back with such hyperbole as if he slept on white bedsheets.

    Why do we play the national anthem at sporting events anyway? Seems more appropriate to play it at military and political events. Just play your hype video and then play ball.

    Hey Bozo

    There are 4 listed Marist-Socialist countries in Wikipedia.

    They are Cuba, Laos, Vietnam and China.

    Which one do you believe we should become?

    Get your head out of your ass and stand up for America!

    Stop getting worked up over the fact that other people believe differently than you. You do you and they do them. Depriving yourself of a sport you enjoy over peripheral crap only punishes you. They're getting paid either way.

    He’s an inflexible goon in over his head. The style of play AUFC exhibited was far and away the most offensive thing.

    That moment when you hit the back button and think the Bunker has gotten weird only to realize it’s Dear Diary land. Grape job, OP.

    Absolutely, that's the only reason they're doing this...to bring Marxism to the US.

    You're amazingly prescient.

    I posted a pic of RICHARD Marx, not your boy Karl. While I realize humor is not allowed in the America you are trying to create, my post was a joke. Even @Jay G. Tate , who aligns with politically, could see that because he still has a sense of humor...
