I find the fact that you and others will straight up not watch one of your favorite sports teams for something they did for 90 seconds before a game that a lot of other teams and players were doing, hilarious. Even if you dont agree with it ( I personally dont care either way) They are the team of the city where an event the sparked the largest social movement of the last 50 years happened. You had to have known they were going to be doing it. Think a little.

Lol, when did they ever really start showing the anthem and another thing do you take your hat off at home when the rare times you do see the anthem? Who cares.

Out of curiosity, do you stand in your living room?

Too bad you didn't post this earlier. The Twins could've added you to their In Memoriam video.

Therein lies the hypocrisy.

Good to know.

I also purposely framed my statement to see who would automatically assume it meant I wouldn't watch if they were kneeling. Which was almost everyone.

Also good to know.

Yeah, because it's not as if this is a common refrain and oft-used as a reason to no longer watch baseball. I've seen it used well over a dozen times in the past 16 hours alone.

 

What's even the point of this thread? To trick other users?

 

Be better. This thread is locked for somehow becoming even more pointless than I originally thought it was.
