I am hopeful that the American people see through the current political strategy of those seeking to label others, who happen to disagree, as they strive to gain favor while employing identity politics.

One might ask, just why would ESPN even consider the mix of sports and politics??? Without knowing, my best guess would be that since political parties and campaigns are awash with dollars and ESPN is a for profit entity, both see a potential opportunity to gain...... but, there is a risk where both would lose.


ESPN is owned by ABC and Disney. This isn't the same Disney we grew up with it is something different.

I agree. Too many companies are wading into the political arena. And sadly I think it has a lot to do with the leadership who feel that social justice will win them customers.....It won't.

Delta is EXTREMELY guilty of this, and I have considered moving to another airline. But alas I live in Atlanta and multi-stop trips don't suit me in my job.

There are very few social problems that get resolved by politics. Generally, political solutions to social issues make the issue worse. More often than not in today's world, if you define the anti-christ as someone or something that creates a problem, then solves the problem they created, the masses rally around that entity, singing the omnipotent attributes of the "anti-christ" and they then dump every issue imaginable on that entity to solve the problem; governments fit that definition.

I believe in a strong government limited to defined areas of responsibility. The Constitution is a good place to start. Common Sense* fills in areas that were not anticipated years ago.

The constitution is absolutely a good place to start. I'm not sure that some people believe the constitution extends past the first amendment and I'm not sure they understand what that means either.

It's divisiveness that is tearing the country apart, and I would argue is 'intentional'.

You lose the importance of the Strong Independent Individual to the Identity of a Special Interest Group, who really does not care about any of the Individuals within it.


Very true. The folks are just used to advance an agenda, and discarded if needed.


See espn's promotion of Boise State, and any other non-BCS conference undefeated team, from pre-playoff era to the current model.

They used the political approach of class politics to drive the viewer perspective. Now, they champion the elite money class programs.

Equal opportunity does not mean equal outcomes...

It is not ESPN's fault that the .west coast isn't as football crazy as the midwest, east and south. And has had relatively poor products of late.

It is not ESPN's fault that some flyover states are not densely populated and have fewer eyeballs watching sports.

A company makes account of customers....maybe less salt water fishing tackle advertised in Utah or Kansas and more in Florida.

Why...just why...would ESPN go out of their way to promote Boise State? They don't go out of their way to promote FSU or Georgia or Wisconsin.

It really is an extension of the "they hate us" disease prevalent in football fans.

Oh why..why..doesn't ESPN promote North Carolina's Women's Soccer....holder of 22 national championships? Why do they seem to promote UConn Women's basketball far more?

The answer my friends ain't blowin' in the wind....they hate us.

Too bad a lot of our country doesn't understand this, because it is absolutely true. No matter how many laws the government makes I'm not out running Deon Sanders, I'm not out hitting Pete Rose, I won't have Steph Curry's jump shot. Some people are better at some things than other people. It is true in almost everything. All men may be created equal, but that doesn't mean that all men are equally talented at everything. I wish we would except that and focus on helping the individual excel at make the most of his/her individual talents. Making the focus on groups is an exercise in futility.

And they finally get it:

As much as I hat Yahoo!'s anti-conservative tabloid coverage of all things relevant; I do appreciate reading this on their website.

Now, if people would take aim at the fascist news commentary from Yahoo! we might get some push back, and these lunatics may finally have to temper their insanity.
