Hey NFL,when I was,a,kid,boxing was a very big thing. Can any one name the current heavyweight champion of the world? You will become just as irrelevant

Tyson Fury what are you living under a rock?? :)

As for the NFL.. the league is considering putting names of victims of police brutality on helmet decals or jersey patches,...

I was so looking forward to this season.

There was almost NOTHING they could have done to lose me again.

They found the almost nothing.

I can’t even enjoy one of the two damn sports I like

The South WILL rise again with or without an “invisible empire” and it will not be pretty.

And I am north of the Mason-Dixon.

Screw the National Felons League. They lost me a long time ago. Now all I do is marvel at the continuing dumpster fire.

I am over and done with the NFL, period. Likewise with NASCAR, although the only interest it held was a good pileup.

If you even have a passing interest in motorsports go to a short track. 1/4 mile dirt and paved ovals are everywhere and have events all spring and summer.

The NFL is dead to me now. I’ll give college ball 100% as long as they respect our Country.

Inasmuch as the USA is only 13% Black, is the NFL trying to go broke??
(For those who don’t know, our LARGEST ethnic minority is NOT really too fond of Blacks.- I’ve worked with too many Latinos, especially Tejanos, to NOT know how a LOT of them feel when only Latinos are around OR they think that the “Gringos” speak NO Spanish..)

Disgusting. But will be one more unintended contribution to the Trump victory.

Instead of putting their hand over their heart, I believe they grab their crotch to glorify the prison culture.

Awww, that's so cute...and they'll have more than enough room to name such "victims".
