I support you in spirit, but not quite all the way in practice. Here's why I'm willing to go to the trouble to heckle those jerks while putting up with them at the same time.anygunanywhere wrote:I don't consider insulting millions of loyal patriots both dead and living as a right. Denigrating the word right by defining what these losers are doing as such is the same as saying someone has the right to steal or murder.
Respect is not earned at gunpoint. It is far better for the mass bulk of the country to not want to disrespect America than it is to force respect, because whatever you get by force will be a mix of acquiescence and rebellion, not respect.
High-mindedness aside, I can't believe as much as airtime costs during an NFL football game that owners are content to allow their investment to be used as an employee's bullhorn. It doesn't make sense, particularly when they protest the system that not only lets them use their posteriors for ear muffs, it protects their right to be disgusting - assuming the players are either on their own time or act in accordance with employment expectations.
They are building up a debt they owe the country.
I'm not a big football fan, anyway. Give me a good ol' race, anything where each competitor's greatest challenge is his own limits, and I'm entertained and inspired. Gun matches are like that. Skills brought to bear on weaknesses with finesse, grace besting challenge.
Unless it came up in conversation, I probably wouldn't even notice for a few seasons if football games ceased to be.
