With everything going on within the NFL regarding kneeling and such, I do wonder how many have reverted to watching College football? I do know that within my own household, College FB has become a bit of a new norm? We refuse to watch NFL and do boycott their games on the TV...and BTW? NASCAR is our homes sport of choice-LOL....but Football fills that winter gap ;-) I was honestly, just curious...I have become a bit of a Clemson fan myself LOL

I tried, but after seeing the college kids emulating the nfl stars, I gave up.

It's ice fishing season here anyway.

Honestly? I really don't know...I just happened to see Sunday's NFL evening game was cancelled, it created a convo in my home, and I just got curious about the College FB thing, as that is the direction our home went in within all the controversy

I've always enjoyed college football much more. I do the NFL pick 'em here, but I really don't know enough about the NFL to make a serious attempt at it.

These are the people you are mad at?


Philadelphia Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins’ philanthropic group and the Philadelphia Police Department held a holiday dinner surprise basket event Monday at the Strawberry Mansion Police Athletic League Center in Philadelphia.



NORTH PHILADELPHIA - On a December night in North Philadelphia a large semi-truck rolled down a narrow street as part of a major surprise.

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery was leading the holiday caravan. He went on a Christmas shopping spree and was ready to deliver joy to dozens of Philadelphia families.




PHILADELPHIA -- Chris Long is donating the rest of his year's salary to increase educational equality.

The Philadelphia Eagles defensive end already gave up his first six game checks to provide two scholarships for students in his hometown of Charlottesville, Virginia. Now, he's using the next 10 to launch the Pledge 10 for Tomorrow campaign.



Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz officially announced the launch of his new “Carson Wentz AO1 Foundation” on Tuesday. Wentz talked about his nonprofit in a video posted on his official Twitter account.


7/8th of the league are philanthropic community leaders and you boycott because politicians like to wag the dog.

Nice job.

I am a Pittsburgh Steeler fan. I even bought tickets to games and travel to Pittsburgh for a couple of games every year (from Georgia even)
Not this year. My 2 tickets were shelved , never to be used.
I didnt even know the Steelers were in the playoff until a friend told me last week.

I have always been a NCAAF 1-A fan. A very good alternative to the NFL which has became an over publicized pile of garbage.Turned into a 3 hr 12 minute game , with only 12 minutes game time with the NCAAF close behind

Now , I am slowly becoming a fan of REAL football - Rugby

You know there are vets in the NFL right?

You know players raise money for vets right?

And the protest had nothing to with with vets and literally a special forces vet worked with kap on his protest?

Didn't think so.

Ps who says I didn't wear the uniform? Get real bro.

NASCAR?

NASCAR is losing it's fan base in droves, bleachers at the tracks are largely empty, and

Brian France didn't kneel for anything.

Personally, it's an insult to the paying fan. Simple. Do good work in the community or donate? Applause. Kneel during the anthem? Middle finger.

Just in case you were confused rather than making silly talking points.....

So less than 1 percent of players kneel and it's a boycott situation?

Who is making silly talking points?

Better not use the interent it's full of morons...

People want sports, not politics.

Thanks to networks like ESPN and wonderful tards like Bob Kostas who seem to think we want their political opinions aired, people can't even get away from politics when they watch their favorite sports. Nope.

You will be made to care, and when they figure out where people have run to to get away from them and their lecturing and badgering after they've destroying sports, they'll follow us there too.

My "boycott" of the NFL started early last season and was very much a product of multiple issues. The kneeling Kapernick last season was ridiculous, moreso this year with multiple players doing it, I was sick and tired of the idiocy of their current commissioner, the rule changes suck, the fun has been sucked right out of the league with all of the emphasis being put on head injuries. I do still watch college ball and enjoy it, but many of the NFL's turd-like policies are starting to seep into the NCAA, too so...

Go sit in your emptying stands....unlike "talking points" the boycott is speaking for itself....let the NFL die a slow death....ACTIONS speak louder than words....and Sundays cancellation? Speaks VOLUMES.....Overpaid bunch of whiny a$$ children I say....and you go ahead and whine-ass with them....now, open the bunker head, and climb out of your Momma's basement.....a reply to: luthier

No sh*t!....You don't say!! ?? You obviously missed the point....putting a knee down to the anthem is an INSULT to our military....and duh, the knee situation resulted from police brutality situations...so how again is this affecting ANYONE in police uniform, when it SURELY disrespects our military AND the American People? and to call others Moron?? Hahahahahaha.....no REAL stance, so name-call and attack instead....you have your opinion and by the laws of The United States, I have MINE....now go drink your kool-aid and eat your dinner like a good Momma's boy....?a reply to: luthier
