    I love sports because it's normally a diversion, a place to get away from all the BS going on. I'm not canceling my season tickets over this. But the constant politicizing of everything is getting real, real old.

    Dude needs to worry about kneeling 3 times in a row at the end of every game.

    This is a complicated topic to weigh in on. I don't want to appear to be racist, but I consider myself to be patriotic, having grownup in the '60's, saying the Pledge of Allegiance every morning in school, then vacationing in South east Asia for 12 months after high school...courtesy of Uncle Sam. Every 4th of July, at 1 p.m. I have a tradition of cranking up the volume on the Jimi Hendrix version of the National Anthem, probably to the dismay of my neighbors. I respect all veterans for their service, and will never kneel during the National Anthem. I'm not a member of the KKK, but I'm also not one to applaud looters who use a cause like BLM as an excuse to get a new big screen tv, or destroy communities. Baker Mayfield has every right to kneel during the National Anthem...as does Colin Kapernick, or anyone else, white or black. I won't be forced to participate, though, by being told I'm unaware of the message being sent. The message to me is loud and clear. I translate it as being...." I hate your country....the one your ancestors died defending.....the one that rolls out the red carpet for immigrants, so they can achieve goals beyond their dreams." I've known many black people throughout my life. Some I consider my brothers, and would do anything for. Others....not so much. Exactly like the relationships I've had with white people...some good...some bad. But...the numerous occurrences of unarmed black men being killed by these stupid ass cops, who think they are Dirty Harry, makes me want to puke. If the local government officials are too dumb to hire responsible people as public servants, to PROTECT our citizens, then changes are needed. We all talk about the racial tension with the riots in the '60's. It was bad, but not like today. Things have not improved over the years. They're much worse now than ever.

    If you only want to hear people opinions that agree with you use the PM function why post in an open public forum?

    I don't get the hostility. He just had his own opinion. That isn't allowed? Offending people because kneelers have a legit grip about racism - alienates the folks they want to get the message out to. Which tells me, that the ulterior motive is getting attention for getting attention's sake. Media hype and fame. Not the cause. And it doesn't solve anything - it's counter-productive. Just how I see it. I agree with the sentiment, not the taking away from the reason fans go to the games - to see the GAME.

    I’m a cop. I have an above average IQ. I work with a lot of people who are as equally or more intelligent than I am. I don’t hate anyone. We live in dark times. Not sure what else to say.

    He's awesome. And he hit a Steeler QB over the head with his own helmet. Let me repeat that ... He hit a Steeler QB over the head with his own helmet. Should never pay for a beer in Cleveland again. Z

    What is so hard to understand?? A person can be both against and for abortion (I am) A person can be both for tight boarder security and for legal immigration (I am) A person can be both for the police and against the bad cops (I am) A person can be against racism while not supporting the BLM organization (I am) A person can be both for the right to bear arms yet wants tougher gun ownership regulations (I am) A person can believe in a higher power (God) yet believe we are not alone in the universe (I do) A person can be a Browns fan and still pick them to go 6-10 and win the preseason prognostication pole most years (I do) ^ This message was sponsored by neither a republican or a democrat and shows what a registered Independent thinker actually looks like.

    Glad to help. Baker may as well be kneeling before black people asking forgiveness for his "white privilege", and perhaps that is what he's really doing.. Isn't that what we're all supposed to be doing now? Fuck all you ignorant liberal (redundant, I know) form of white trash who have been nurturing this false narrative. The facts don't matter, only your feelings do. Hail to your Moses, Colin Kaperdick chosen by god to deliver his people.

    Left's playbook 1. Accuse Racism ( Racist, bot, Alt ) 2. Deny your right to speak ( close forum ) 3. Using the mob mentality ( I left for a short time until others with opinions different from that ) 4. Play the victim ( those mean Trump supporters posts things hurt our feelings ) 5. Appeal to authority fallacy ( CNN, MSNBC, New York Times, MSN, Yahoo )

    My opinion is I don't like it, I just want to watch the game. I don't want anybodys agenda during a game. I am all for people peacefully protesting about anything they want and driving policy changes. Its your God given right. I am not for this mob mentality that is coercing people to think a certain way. The NFL changed its position because the mob forced them too. My feeling is NFL players can be a force for change, they have a big microphone to do so and can work in their communities and advocate for change and put money behind these ideas. Kneeling at a ball game never has and never will cause change. I like what someone said earlier, just keep the players in the locker room or tunnel during the anthem and then let them come out and play ball. I think we all agree that everyone should received equal treatment and justice under the law. And we should work to make change anywhere we need to, to ensure that happens. But that doesn't mean I am going to support this war on the police, or the violence, outing of everyone who may have said something 10 years ago that you don't like. Lets make it so that those in power are held accountable and are good stewards of that power and that we all just love and respect each other and on game day lets just play ball.

    Yes, there can be consequences....in the meantime we have Fox News running 24/7 in the schools brain washing our young. We're going to cowtow to QAnon, White Supremacist and all the other right wing organization hate groups who want turn people into Nazi loving, murdering right wing terrorists. LOL.... You people, the ignorant, the racist, the hateful, the greedy, the indecent....you with your cult admiration of a fascist dictator wannabe ? NOT in America. (now would be a good time to move this)

    Forget all the hoopla. Play the anthem, then have the players run on to the field. Forget all the introductions and fireworks. On gameday, it is a team of 48 or whatever it is. The team hits the field and that is that. Don't give them the stage. The stage is the game.

    Thanks Bill. As we discussed, "perception" can be an awful thing & mine was wrong. I DO appreciate your call(s) & there has been no damage to our friendship. To others...Cal IS a great guy & good friend. I don't discuss politics with anyone, but (IMO) this political forum could go "bye-bye". Mike

    Mike and I had a very excellent conversation for about an hour and as I thought there had been a miscommunication (mostly on my part) that Mike took differently than I ever intended. I apologized for what I said since I then understood how he took it at that time. Mike very graciously accepted my apology and when he is next down this way we will be getting together. The issue itself is not important, but talking it out as friends certainly is. Thanks cal for bringing it to my attention. Otherwise I would have been oblivious to the fact something I said here was being heard differently than what was meant by me. Mike's a great guy and he assures me that you are too. That goes a long way in my book. I respect his opinions greatly.

    I'm not so much in the defending it as much as wondering what is this old guy doing there to begin with? Shouldn't he be worrying about coronavirus? Here's a tip: when you have a militarized police force marching down the street: if you have no intention of fighting them get the fuck out of the way.

    The board June 2020 So here’s what I think. First and foremost if you don’t like it here this absolutely no reason for you to log on and read the opinions of people you disagree with. If it frustrates you or angers you why do it? If you don’t care about politics why bother? I hate basketball so I never log on to the Cavs board. But if I did like basketball and I was a Pistons fan how stupid would it be for me to keep demanding that they take down the Cavs board? Or the high school football board? That’s kind of a waste of time because everybody here went to a different High School. I don’t care about the Mentor st. Ignatius game. I care about the Carrollton Minerva game, or the Norton Wadsworth game . Nobody else does. So should I demand the board be taken down? Here’s another example. If you don’t like liver, don’t order it when you go to the restaurant. If you do order it and then bitch about every bite you take and demand it be taken off the menu, you’re an idiot. This is politics there are some people that like politician Smith and some people who like politician Jones and for that reason they hate the other one. The Browns board it’s not comprised of both Steelers and Browns fans. If it was it would be just as rancorous is this place. Worse I would imagine. Mr. T was a terrible moderator even though I probably agreed with him on most subjects politically. He was constantly deleting posts from the left and giving them warning points or booting them off. I don’t do that. I expect everybody to be man enough to deal with the people that don’t agree with them. But even though I have my own political opinions it’s not my job to punish the people you disagree with no matter who you are. I don’t love Trump and I don’t hate Obama. And I know that bothers some people. On the board and in Society it seems to me that it’s usually the left who wants the opposition shut down. It’s usually the left who shout down speakers that don’t agree with them on college campuses attitude really people on the left who demand that people on the right be kicked off this board or the board shut down. That being said there are things on this board that annoy me, some of the guys just post too much shit for anybody to read or care about. Some guy think it’s funny to troll everyone a dozen times a day. Some guys get just too damn nasty with each other. Some guys spend too much time crying that some other guys are picking on them. I checked the Browns store and I couldn’t find any of these but I think it would be a proper item of clothing for a lot of people. Maybe we should contract a sports attire company to make some brown and orange big boy pants. WSS

    Anyone who kneels and disrespects the flag should never be acknowledged as "American(s)" ever again..... They don't deserve it!
