As a Pats fan, I'll be rooting for Patriots South!And I respect that. You, at least, are honest about what you feel and what you are willing to do about it. The hypocrisy of trying to sound so offended, and then coming back to be a "dedicated" fan when they win is ridiculous.I hated the kneeling and still do. I think it is disrespectful of the men and women that sacrificed all serving our nation.It tells me that you have strong beliefs, until your team goes to the big game. Then those beliefs take a backseat to being a fan. Why does winning make kneeling during the anthem ok or forgivable?Am I allowed to change my mind ? Just for a month ? And just because I respect the accomplishments of the Bucs players and coaches, doesn't mean I no longer despise jellyfish Roger Goodell and the goofball NFL.Odd that the Super Bowl means anything to you.
Just 6 months ago you were posting:
"I have been a staunch Tampa Bay Bucs fan since 1976. I have attended Bucs games over 400 Bucs games, and spent hundreds of $$$ on Bucs paraphenalia. I am quitting being a Bucs fan, I will have nothing to do with the Bucs or the NFL. I am sending to you all my Bucs clothing and items.
Your so-called social justice policies and those of the NFL are preposterous."
"When the NFL gets out of the process of injecting politics (and lousy politics at that), I will come back."
"Right. No more TV or anything to do with it.
If you have any NFL stuff (shirts, hats, beverage cups, etc), pack them in a box and send them to your local team, along with a letter similar to what I wrote here. You can copy it word for word if you like (except for the team name)."
"Odd" that my posts "means anything to you."
The Bucs players accomplished what they did WHILE kneeling during the anthem. Oh, and Roger Goodell and the NFL administration never knelt during an anthem. Admit it, you are still as much a fan as you ever were. You just wanted to sound like you were so offended that you were giving up on Tampa Bay.
Having said that I said my piece when it first started and I had to decide which was more important to me. My "feelings" about someone else's right to be disrespectful or hanging on to one of the last few forms of entertainment that bring me joy.
Go TB12! Go Gronk!
