Hundreds of activists attended an NBA game between the Toronto Raptors and the Brooklyn Nets wearing pro-Hong Kong shirts.

The protesters also wore black masks that resembled the masks that activists in Hong Kong wear during protests to protect themselves from tear gas used by police. Hong Kong politician and activist Nathan Law also attended the game. Law, 26, is a prominent pro-democracy advocate who was arrested and imprisoned ...
Does Corporate America Really Want to Hold a National Referendum on Whether Americans Value Their Own Freedoms or Corporate Freedom to Import Chinese Censorship More?
Post Date: 2019-10-10 18:04:28 by Tooconservative
Jay Cost writes on Twitter (sarcastically): Corporate America going soft on the Chinese is definitely a smart move. There is nothing that warms the cockles of the American heart more than insanely wealthy c-suites coddling a country that spits on the Bill of Rights. This is a path to bipartisan popularity for Wall Street. Americans also love to be lectured about the minutest of their personal, social, and political preferences while foreign oppressors get a total pass. You are not waking the bear. This will be fine. Don't think twice about the populist movements that have roiled American politics over the last decade. I'm sure they will never turn their attention to the various ...

For the cash: Ex-NFL player stages hate crime, trashes his businesses
Post Date: 2019-09-17 20:12:02 by Tooconservative
Jussie Smollett, the Sequel was stopped by police in Georgia last week before the plot ever reached the big screen. Former NFL player Edawn Coughman was arrested for staging a hate crime in a half-baked scheme that involved trashing his own restaurants for insurance money. It appears as though Edawn conjured a premeditated plan to damage his own property, attempt to make it appear as a hate crime, file a claim with his insurance company, and sell off the undamaged appliances and electronics, a Gwinnett County police statement said. Police were tipped off by a witness reporting a break-in and burglary-in-progress at Create and Bake Restaurant and Coughmans ...

New Jersey high school wrestler forced to cut locks or forfeit match
Post Date: 2018-12-27 12:47:06 by misterwhite
BUENA, New Jersey (WPVI) -- The New Jersey Division on Civil Rights is now investigating after a high school wrestler was forced to cut his hair before a match. The incident has sparked questions about why the teen was called out for his hair. Many say the only reason why there was a call to cut the hair was because of the color of the wrestler's skin. Buena Regional High School wrestler Andrew Johnson, a junior, had to have his hair cut or forfeit the match. In video taken of the incident, you can see his locks getting chopped off by a trainer. He would then go on to win his match. The order to cut the locks came from referee Alan Maloney. Back in 2016 Maloney reportedly called ...
The latest "boys beat girls in track event" story
Post Date: 2018-06-11 08:42:46 by Tooconservative
We have a high school sports story out of Connecticut from last week which is likely going to be of more interest than you might think. (Assuming youre not one of the parents who brought their child to the event, anyway.) On Monday, the Connecticut State Open track and field championships were held for high school students. Of particular interest were the girls 100 and 200 meter dash. Lets watch one of those record-setting events via a tweet from Game Time Connecticut.

Deflated: NFL popularity at new low, just 3 in 10 are 'favorable'
Post Date: 2018-06-02 15:25:53 by Tooconservative
The National Football League has done nothing to recover during the off season from its miserable popularity ratings that are now at the lowest ever. Rocked by the issues of players taking a knee during the playing of the National Anthem, overly long games, and scandalous players, just 35 percent say they have a favorable view of Americas sport. According to an Economist/YouGov poll taken May 27-29 another 47 percent have an unfavorable view of the NFL. What's more, only 15 percent called the NFL a "top interest," and 37 percent said that they are "Not at all interested" in the games. Many teams are already in early training camp ...
Report: Some NFL players may sit out the season unless Kaepernick -- and Eric Reid -- are signed [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2018-05-29 05:14:36 by Tooconservative
How many activists need to be signed before sufficient wokeness has been achieved to play ball? You can certainly trust hyper-progressive activist Shaun King to give you the straight dope on what star NFL players are and arent thinking: BREAKING: Several star @NFL players have told me they are considering sitting out the season until the de facto ban of Eric Reid and Colin Kaepernick is removed and both men are given spots back on rosters. They aim to get 25% of the players to sit out with them.

Redskins cheerleaders: The team practically "pimped us out" to rich dudes and corporate sponsors in Costa Rica in 2013
Post Date: 2018-05-03 00:52:39 by Tooconservative
Silver lining, I guess: The name Redskins is no longer the teams biggest political problem. There was no actual sex in this pimping out, the Timess sources say, just some of the traditional pre-coitus arrangements for an escort service. A group of attractive women all in the firms employ are told that a group of wealthy men wants to mingle with them privately, and saying no doesnt seem to be much of an option. Allegedly, when you sign up to cheer for the Skins youre also unwittingly signing up to be companions for rich fans in foreign countries after theyve watched you model topless. Oh, and after team management ...
Ratings for NBC's Olympics Continue to Stink on Ice

#GetWokeGoBroke. Actually it's a combination of things, though I'm sure the little political statements from Olympians who don't even get a medal aren't helping. As Donny Two Scoops might say, "Me?

Downhill dive: NBC's terrible Olympics get worse in week two as marquee names flee, ratings sink and anchors struggle to find anything good to cover in the wake of school massacre The 2018 Winter Olympics have produced few medal winners from Team USA and provided little must-see TV for broadcaster NBC On Monday, NBC learned that Mikaela Shiffrin was withdrawing from ...

PYEONGCHANG, South Korea The womens figure skating competition hasnt begun at these Olympic Games, yet we already know who is going to come in first and second, barring epic collapses on the ice, which could happen, but probably wont. An Olympic Athlete from Russia will win, and another Olympic Athlete from Russia will come in second in the competition that begins Wednesday with the short program and ends Friday with the long.

Comedy Skit Features Fans Who Want MORE Politics In Their Sports
Post Date: 2018-02-18 18:15:16 by Tooconservative
We The Internet, a "political and comedy news channel," uploaded a video recently, titled "The Fans Who Want More Politics In Sports." The video takes a look at a fictional group of sports fans who not only praise kneeling NFL players, but crave more political commentary from their sports. "And thats just football. What about hockey?" one fan asks. "Wouldnt it be amazing if right before the puck drops, we hear a debate about trans rights?" Another fan suggests: "How about this: after committing a penalty, instead of hockey players just sitting in the penalty box until their time is up, they should be required to write a think-piece ...
Super Bowl LII had fewest viewers since 2009, down 7 percent from last year
Post Date: 2018-02-06 03:34:10 by Tooconservative
The NFLs ratings slide continued through its final game of the season. According to Nielsen data released Monday, viewership for Super Bowl LII was measured at 103.4 million, the lowest figure for the game since 2009 and a 7 percent drop from last years game. The good news for the NFL is that its annual championship game still easily reigns supreme among all TV shows, and to a lesser extent, that the Super Bowl ratings drop from last year was lower than the leagues nearly 10 percent plunge for its regular season games. Ratings for most TV programming is down, as people increasingly cut the cord from cable and follow events on social media. To that end, NBC, which ...
Why Tom BradyÂ’s New England Patriots Are the Most Tainted Sports Dynasty Ever
Post Date: 2018-02-04 16:01:49 by Tooconservative
Thank God for the New England Patriots. Yes, the New England Patriots, the cheating-est, MAGA-est dynasty in sports. Why be grateful for the presence of this unholy, and seemingly unstoppable team in the Super Bowl yet again? Because its one of the few good and true reasons to tune into the game, if only for the miniscule possibility that Tom Brady, Bill Belichick, and owner Robert Kraft might be dealt a righteous and wholly justified loss. Aside from that, no amount of Puppy Bowls, celebrity halftime performances, and multimillion-dollar ad buys is worth it, because this may have been the year that finally broke football. For anyone still laboring under the delusion that there are ...

Here’s Why You Probably Won’t See Any Anthem Protests At The Super Bowl
Post Date: 2018-01-17 11:36:48 by Tooconservative
NBC announced early last week that they plan to televise players who kneel for the national anthem during the Super Bowl. However, ones small problem: No regular NFL kneeler is still playing in the postseason. According to a report by The Washington Times, none of the teams that had active national anthem protesters made it to the post season. According to the Times: By the end of the regular season, only five teams featured at least one player regularly sitting or kneeling on the sidelines for the anthem: the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders. None of those franchises made the playoffs, even though four of the ...
NFL Ratings Plunge Again For Divisional Playoff Round
Post Date: 2018-01-16 12:18:07 by Tooconservative
The NFL just can't buy a break. Although there were a few decent games over the past weekend including the crazy, last-second win by Minnesota ratings for America's football league dropped once again. Viewership has been down all year, due to both the player protests during the national anthem and a whole lot of boring games. But NFL owners were hoping the playoffs would end all that. No such luck. The Wild Card round two weekends ago saw ratings drop 13% over last year (and the games were pretty crummy). Then last weekend, for the divisional playoff games, ratings for all four games fell to their lowest point in almost a decade, according to NBC. The good news, if ...

NFL television ratings down 9.7 percent during 2017 regular season
Post Date: 2018-01-04 16:30:15 by Tooconservative
NFL television ratings fell 9.7 percent during the 2017 regular season, according to numbers registered by Nielsen. A typical game was watched by 1.6 million fewer people this season as compared to last season (14.9 million versus 16.5 million). The drop comes after the NFL had hoped to stem an 8 percent ratings slide from last season by experimenting with the format for television commercials and trying to speed up the game. Last year's slide was partly attributed to a lost audience due to the presidential election. This year, the NFL was challenged with fans upset at players protesting during the national anthem, an action that led to a league faceoff with President Donald Trump. ...
Ravens admit anthem protests tanked their ticket sales

The Baltimore Ravens are no longer in contention for the AFC North title, having fallen too far behind the Steelers, but they are currently tied with the Bills and the Titans for a wild card slot and theyve been showing a lot of potential. They play the Colts today in a home game that could prove to be a make or break match in terms of their chances at a post-season appearance. With that much on the line, youd expect the stadium to be buzzing, but in addition to the Colts, Baltimore is facing another battle. Theyre trying to fill up the seats at M&T Bank Stadium and avoid yet another embarrassing display of sparsely populated stands. The Ravens sold out every single ...

Both protesting players and those opposed to their tactics now seem locked-in on their respective stances on the righteousness of the protests. The same players who protested in previous weeks either stayed in the locker room, kneeled or sat, while many teams stood and locked arms in a compromise maneuver. On the other side, President ...
