So, another incident where cops shoot a black guy in the back and the Detroit Lions refuse to practice.
The only video I've seen the news is the one from across the street. There's a second video of this. Someone holding a phone on the same side of the street. It shows him and the cops wresting around on the ground for a bit before he goes around and starts to go in the car. Has anyone else seen it besides me? If not, I'll find a link. I've only seen it in one YouTube video.
That one came out shortly after the first one. Most folks are ignoring it because it doesn't fit their agenda. Also look for the scanner recording audio... they knew this guy could be trouble before they got to the address.

This was a publicity stunt staged by the Lions. They literally called the local media so that cameras and photographers would show up.

Do I think the Kenosha cops acted with excessive force? Most likely. Why were the cops attempting to detain the man in the first place? That question was not answered. The fact he has a past criminal record is not an acceptable answer. The Kenosha police chief acted like TOTAL PUSSY and dodged the public and the media for days. What a coward!

That said, this goofy publicity stunt by the Lions accomplishes nothing. Maybe it gives the front office and players a warm fuzzy feeling. I don't know. If they are truly worried about excessive police violence, they should contribute some of the millions upon millions in profits to organizations whose mission it is to bring litigation against corrupt police officers and corrupt police organizations.
They're making a political statement and have become a political organization, not a sports franchise.
They've been such an abysmal failure as a sports franchise; maybe they'll be more successful as a political lobbying group? :)

I would be 100% CONTENT if they took the entire upcoming season off!!! Hell, take the next five years off.

Are you kidding me? He had a current charge of felony sexual assault and a restraining order against going to that house!!

What should the cops do when a suspect FIGHTS with three officers then heads towards a vehicale and refuses many orders to stop??? Just let him walk away???

But I totally agree with the rest of your post regarding the Lions actions!!

It was bliss not knowing what pro athletes opinions were. Now everyone of them put in their two cents... that said, it kinda affects my opinions of them.

Part of me believes postponement of contests would not be tolerated by the NBA or MLB if we weren't in the middle of a pandemic and fans were allowed to fill arenas & stadiums as usual.

I'm sure you'd be right. I wonder if the players are still getting their normal pay while they're off?

Bear in mind contests were only postponed (i.e. rescheduled), not canceled outright. In baseball's case, not too different from a rain-out. Moreover, the leagues endorsed the actions. So, no dock in pay.

But the grocery stores would have plummeting sales on Pepto Bismol in Detroit. Think of the economy, MW!

Oh good, more white men complaining about things they refuse to understand. You don't deserve the Lions (as shitty as they are).

Most of the comments I'm seeing elsewhere is everyone is abandoning professional sports in droves. Frankly most kind of held there nose on the players personal lives, but now they have been awakened.

Very few guys will abandon college and pro football when it comes back. Just watch. There were all those tough guys when players were taking a knee, but they still watching.

Truer words were never spoken! :)

The mere existence of the Detroit Lions is cruel & unusual punishment for humankind.

My attitude of pro sports has changed a lot. Seems the protests and controversies overshadow the actual sport itself. I feel that if the players have an opinion they wanna share, it should be done on their own time. People attend or watch sports to see the game and have a good time and escape reality for a few hours. Who in the hell wants to see protests and whatnot? Can a person watch a sport w/o having a political statement shoved down their throats?
