I thought that part of the goal was to "start a conversation." Now it appears that "shut up" is the response to those with a view that is different than the views of those in support of "the movement."
I fail to see "shut up" in my response. I simply said that most people are tired of the same people repeatedly letting us know that they are not watching games. Do I like seeing politic involved with the game? No, not really. And that goes both ways. The politics of boycotting is just as irritating as the politics of protesting. Does it keep me from this forum to read and talk about my Saints and the NFL? No. Just as the other doesn't stop me from watching either, as well.

He clearly cares a LOT about whether or not people watch, otherwise he wouldn't feel the need to constantly nag people who don't. I'm soooo shocked that he contradicted himself.
How would you know? You claim to have blocked me ages ago so you have no clue of what I post ... unless you are full of crap and haven't blocked me. Well, which is it?

ONCE AGAIN, "DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO"

So ...

If you are totally committed to not watching the Saints, or any other NFL team, play in person or on any platform this 2020 season could you please simply state such in this thread.

Thank you for your cooperation in this attempt to learn more about our fellow Saints fans and their ongoing interest. I will do my best to keep up with the numbers.
This just shows how well you ascertained the purpose of that post. The whole thread I created some time back was to show the relatively small number of members planning on abstaining from watching the NFL. A few members claimed that the numbers of people refusing to watch the NFL would have a crippling affect on the NFL's revenue stream. Nowhere in that thread did I indicate I had any issue with those individuals choosing to not tune in. My stance has not changed as to that point. The only thing I have pointed out here is that there is nothing to be gained by repeatedly coming to a pro-Saints/NFL forum just to reiterate that you are not watching. And by "you" I am not referring to you because you are still watching the NFL, correct?


19-0 Baby!

Best ratings for FOX's week 1 "Game of the Week" since 2016.

Most-watched telecast since Super Bowl LIV.

FOX's most-streamed NFL regular-season Sunday ever.

New Orleans delivered a 45.6 rating and a 63 share.

Wow!

For those who haven't tried this yet, I recommend it. So peaceful. All that hot air just blows right past you.

Re: Saints vs. Buccaneers Game Day Thread

Just to put a bow on the Bucs game ..

Ceedy Deuce had 9 solo tackles, 1 assist and a deflected pass. 4th round selection on the books but 1st rd talent on Sundays. He's a dawg.

Keep grinding.

He is essentially playing a LB in those sub packages and we were in subs probably 90% of the game.

Love the guy!

I can appreciate the attempt at subtlety at the end of your post, but I'm a relatively smart guy so I notice the sarcasm and disapproval that oozes from it. You seem not to understand that I don't come here for your approval, your understanding, your sympathy or empathy. You're all just people who are kind of a part of my life now, so I come here and occasionally engage in conversations and share my opinion on any number of subjects. No different than anyone else here. I mean I've got a wife and 7 kids, with number 8 arriving in just a few weeks. Sometimes I just want a little interaction with other adults, even if it is just on the internet. Disagree with me all you like but don't pretend to sit in judgement of me from some imagined high ground. Now you have a good one, and like I said, enjoy your games if you can enjoy them.
There is no upturned nose brother. I am very pragmatic even to the point that its none of my business whether you visit B&G or why. I am glad that you do because without people coming here it would be extremely quiet. I don't have an issue with people not watching the NFL, again not my business.

None of the above is my business. Until it gets stuck in front of my face repeatedly and starts showing up in conversations that have nothing to do with that topic. At that point is it s distraction.

I view a person telling what they will do (without being asked) in two ways.. its a threat of action or virtue signaling. I am also cognizant that some people require validation which is a 'whole nother' discussion in it self.

When I pointed out that protesting a protest is effectively repeating unfavorable behavior some people got butt hurt and followed with more unfavorable behavior... none of it made my statement inaccurate just showed how much they were emotionally invested in laying next to a child in Walmart and screaming in chorus. The goal was that at least one person would read it and think '**** he is right, and watch the games'...


Here is a question to ponder. You have 8 children, send me birthday party invites to all of their birthdays. How many times do I have to show up and start exclaiming how much I hate birthday parties just before the candles are blown out before you look at me and ask "then why in the fk are you here"? If I did that it would look like I was just showing up to ruin someone else's day would it not?

Now lets talk about your definition of 'adult interaction' with an emphasis on adult LOL
