Sports are the way the ignorant masses stay out of politics, keeps us busy on minutia.


I swear TRump is inadvertently going down Machiavelli's list and doing the fucking opposite.


And these athletes aren't pissing on the flag, they are protesting racial inequality inherent in the system.

ffs the electoral college was set up to serve white landowners back in the day, and hasn't fucking changed.

Wait! There is a 3rd stanza?

It celebrates slave fighting and dying for freedom?

Isn't it racist that we never sing that stanza?

There is a difference between Chair and owner. If you're the chair you run it, but the owner who owns the club can sack you.

So the LeBron and Durant comments are making waves. And apparently ESPN execs have told show hosts not to talk about the subject since they bashed the president. LeBetard and S.A. Smith are ignoring that though.

Here are what LeBron and KD said:

Did they have the NFL dead-to-rights, I wonder? Some sources saying they settled for something like $60 million.
