I'm going to try to not be combative here but c'mon. Address any point I made? You quoted 70% and I assumed we were okay with rounding since we were okay misrepresenting the very question the poll asked. if that's the best you have just let it drop.
No one said he was MLK, stop misrepresenting what I said. My point was that when people have time to calm down, they sometimes change their mind. Like they did with MLK. And Ali. My experience talking with people who don't like CK is that they don't really know what CK is saying - they're projecting their own beliefs about those who oppose them onto CK. You don't strike me as different in that regard. He doesn't hate America, he doesn't want the troops to die - he's just using his first amendment right to free speech. We should all be proud of that, even if we disagree. Jon Kitna led prayer circles after every game. I'm not a big fan of organized religion but I'm glad that he has the right to gather and worship as he chooses.
Likewise, I think Favre is a perfect comparison. Favre was actually hated, not disagreed with. I have never known an opposing player that MN sports fans have ever hated more. Then he became a Viking and people raced out to buy his jersey and crow at their Packer fan friends with every win. People dropped that hate in a second because sports has a "my guy" aspect that is hard to resist. If a player makes your team better you like him. We all originally liked AJ if you need another example. And as to your last point, I never met a single person who didn't think that my stance was stupid and never met anyone else who was done with the Vikings for the Favre era. That's anecdotal but I think it's telling.
Do you have an actual response? NItpicking and misrepresenting don't count.
If the Favre comparison is perfect then Kaepernick must have been loved in San Fran, he was "their guy" right? Oh but he was drummed out of town there, some love... Do you have a valid comparison involving a player who was reviled nationwide for his politics and judgement on displaying those views suddenly becoming loved in a new city?
