Re: Survey: Are you going to watch the Saints this season?
 
Sure. The flag thing doesnít bother me as much as the dog and pony show narratives, twitter wars, etc. centered around each matchup. I donít care about peopleís stories or media build up before the game. Itís like WWE. I support the idea of BLM but not what itís become politically so if it turns into a political campaign I wonít watch. Kneeling for the anthem doesnít bother me but I donít want to listen to hours of debate from those calling the game.
If we have a season at all it may happen with some players sitting out to prevent being exposed to COVID. Both Jenkins have expressed concern over it.

If the Saints play, I will be watching. If the Tide plays, I will be watching. This will be the case until my time on earth is done. I love the Saints. I am a lifelong Tide fan. I love sports. I love and play golf. I always watch the majors and others depending on the field. I have watched all of it recently. I'm a casual NASCAR fan. I've watched a lot of it since it's been basically the only sports entertainment on. I will watch the NBA if the Jazz or Pelicans are involved. I will watch the Braves. I will watch March Madness. I will flip by Wrestling and see if something catches my eye. I will watch hockey if I have a wager on it. I will give the Olympics a drive by. I have watched World Cup soccer when the US was involved but it's still like pulling teeth. I will not watch horse racing. I LOL at Corn Hole being televised by ESPN and can't help but think of Beavis and Butthead.

If you think for one second that the ill-fated actions and comments from people dead set on obstruction and destruction will prevent me from my one remaining solace... Trying to make me to cut off my nose to spite my face, you are foolish.

I have sat and enjoyed chocolate chip cookies from home while B52s carpet bombed close enough to shake my cot... I have survived direct fire from 25mm M242 Bushmaster chain guns coming from Bradley fighting vehicles...

It isn't that I am racist, its that kneeling and beating on trash cans just doesn't register with me. Showings of force will be ignored until the time comes to respond with appreciable force. I will not let any race of man stand between me and my happiness, if you are trying to do so to another race then you aren't much better than they are are you?

You will gain my compassion and attention much quicker by just telling me you want to talk. I am pretty damn easy to talk to and always willing to help those that need help. :bng:

Ill be watching

As for watching, Iíll likely pirate stream the games as Iíll be out of market anyway and will not buy Sunday ticket. Even with that, I am not sure Iíll pay much attention or even care to watch.

I also run 3 Fantasy leagues (friends/work/church) and out of 30 people that normally participate only 8 are interested this year. I am not one of those 8 lol... so Iíll likely cancel all of them or let one of the other guys pick it up.

I have also noticed I only visit this site 2 or 3 times a week, used to be 2-3 times a day.

Frankly, I am tired of everything being politically charged. I donít think my little amount of money will matter to the NFL, but honestly I am finding other hobbies to sink time into.

I'm in a 48 team legacy league (three conferences of 16 teams which each conference have access to all the players - 29 keepers) and only one of the 48 owners needed replaced and that one wasn't boycott related.

I think the intensity of fanhood for fans has been tempered a bit with all the shenanigans. It's a shame this question/survey is even asked, if you think about it. It's a testament to current times, an unthinkable thought just not long ago.

The question is only being asked because a couple of members swore to me that the number of people that are going top be boycotting the NFL this year will have a major affect on the league financially. I was informed that MANY members here are planning on boycotting and not watching the NFL this coming season. I'm just wanting to know who might be either over or underestimating the numbers of those planning to boycott.

Current count still stands at only one member of B&G that has been able to honestly say that they will definitely watch no NFL this coming season.

We tend to rationalize an outcome based on what we are exposed to. if 2 million people gathered in each state to protest that's 100 million, in the 2016 Presidential election 129 million people voted... Neither comes close to 1/2 the population of 329 million people in the United States, yet everyone wants to claim an "overwhelming majority"... The reality is that the overwhelming majority of this country are silent and do not want to bother with things outside of their immediate lives, they just don't have the time or excess energy.

Iíll do what I usually do

Go out and enjoy my sunday
Stay aways from sports news
Then watch a condensed game (hiding the score) that evening

If I am home
I will watch the game in full

But not start watching it till after the National Anthem is over.

Re: Survey: Are you going to watch the Saints this season?
 
I will watch my Saints play and I will watch the teams we play against to get a feel for their game. Besides that The NFL has ruined football for me.

However, I still buy Saints NFL gear so that I can represent with pride. Other than that I have no interest in pro football anymore. Screw you Roger Godhell!!! :argue:
