    Pac-12 player group threatens to opt out, makes list of demands on injustice, safety

    https://www.espn.com/college-football/story/_/id/29578950/pac-12-player-group-threatens-opt-makes-list-demands-injustice-safety

    So they want to exercise their Athlete Privilege when they're getting a free $200,000 education and lots of perks and publicity? POUND SAND!

    Yank their scholarship and kick them out of school. Maybe the NFL will give them a tryout. Or they can pay their way through trade school?

    I'm tired of player "demands." Shut up and play. Or don't play. But either way, shut up. Millions don't care about your views on any subject. We pay to watch you play, not for your expertise on any subject.

    I agree, but the system will cave and give special treatment based on the color of their skin.

    Like it or not...the entire farce of all the people and groups proclaiming their demands for special treatment is nothing more that a different take on an old subject; "Discrimination against any person or group who does not conform to your ideology"

    Some call it censorship, some call it victim playing, some call it anarchism, some call it the result of educational socialist indoctrinatio0n but, none of these terms seem to suffice for the cause of hate and division that is the goal of the radical left. So the next best option is to rekindle all the division and hatred that is associated with trigger words like racism, systemic racism, white privilege, white supremacy, enslavement and any other manufactured hate and race baiting issue they manage to find or conjure up.

    Unity as in "E Pluribus Unum" means out of many...one.
    "A house divided against itself cannot stand" is a quote from Abraham Lincoln's house divided speech.
    "United we stand, divided we fall" had its first recorded us back in the time of Aesop.
    "The whole is greater than the sum of its parts" is a phrase attributed to Aristotle.

    There are many historical quotes and words of wisdom that have been around for over 2300 years, and yet, the new generations that we are experiencing have abandoned the idea of, "Those who don't know history are destined to repeat it." (an Edmund Burke (1729-1797) statement). Burke was a British Statesman and Philosopher who is generally viewed as the philosophical founder of modern political conservatism.

    There is truth and unity in the newly coined "wwg1wga" mantra that can restore the United States to its founding U.S. Constitution principles of equal justice and equal rights under the rule of law instead of riots, insanity and chaos under the rule of the anarchist Marxist Radical movement falsely using American citizens of color (primarily B.L.M. members) as their expendable fodder for terror.

    “We’re not your entertainment, we’re human beings.” This is what you guys don't seem to grasp.

    If they make good on their threat to opt out, then ship 'em out, yank their scholarships and give them to kids who want to play.

    What these athletes seem to fail to grasp is that they only are afforded the opportunities that they have because of the freedom our country enshrined and the fans who make the enterprise of major sports viable in the first place. Eliminate half or more of the fans and they no longer have the opportunity they once had. Simple as that.

    Also if they want to open up a can of worms by specifically naming racial injustice as a grievance to be addressed, they better be prepared to make room for far fewer black athletes to be replaced by Asian, Hispanic and white players to be in line with the demographics of the country which we live in.

    Hmm, maybe the racial justice idea wasn't so good after all...

    My wife said there is always the possibility of a pro "Bingo League" they could participate in.

    1. College athletes play for the love of the sport and, usually, for the pride of their school. I've always considered USC's athletes to be part of the Trojan family. Are they just entertainers to you? They aren't being paid to entertain. The school and the NCAA are profiting off of them.

    2. Even if they were being paid for the entertainment, the point is they aren't merely entertainers. To tell them to shuddup and play is the equivalent of telling a woman to shuddup and make you a sandwich. It is like objectifying a woman as a "piece of @ss." It doesn't surprise me that Trumpers are totally cool with reducing human beings to objects for their own enjoyment that can be discarded at any time.

    Yup, don't give her the attention she clearly craves. Just look, the first thing she did when she got back from vacation was to stick her baited hook in the forum, trolling for kicks.

    Apparently they don’t realize we, the supporters, viewers, donors can “opt out” as well.

    I hate to see politicking creeping into college sports. It spoils it all for me. College athletes already have all the benefits of medical care, training table, free tutoring, cost free tuition and books and same security protection and protections against discrimination as all students have. What gives them the right to more protection than any ordinary student. Why are they entitled to special rights? What right have they to insist the college take on outside social justice issues as a condition for their participation? Their demands are the height of arrogance. I'm through with them.

    PacXII group's list of woke-ness demands that will ruin college sports sounds a lot like the fable about killing a goose that laid the golden eggs to me.
