Maybe not question his IQ but certainly his "woke" status. More than willing to call things like he seems them in the US but the rest of the woke crew like Steve Kerr are conveniently silent when it comes to an actual awful country/regime in China. That's called being a fraud.
LOL. Speaking of people that aren't terribly bright...
1. Require putting a basketball through a hoop
2. Have nothing to do with intelligence.
But yea it's great he values his financial interests over the general idea of freedom of speech.Originally Posted by Lebron James
Athletes (in general) should stick to sports & not get dragged in without full education. If one still feels strongly about an issue, run for office or support the cause offline / some other way. If you are going to be open about it; be aware that on sensitive issues you are bound to offend one side or another.
Far as Propaganda .. it runs in all media in all countries, (including ours).
Let’s not kid ourselves.
Let's ask Jeff Bezos or the Walton heirs.
He - and the others I listed earlier - chooses to lecture us on the issues he sees with things in the US, and how we supposedly fall short of our lofty ideals. Yet, when he's actually given an opportunity to truly make a huge impact in the name of freedom where that baseline value is truly under siege … well, nope, not going to wade in, but yeah, I'll kick the guy on our side who dares to give a token of support to that cause, right in the nuts. On top of that, then he accuses THAT guy of being "uneducated".
For those keeping score out there, here's what courage and principle look like:
Muhammad Ali - conscientious objector, nearly jailed, lost untold millions and peak years of his career. 100
Lebron James - more "woke" than you, 'til China threatens his further enrichment, bows in submission. -100
I used to be a big Popovich fan, but now he's another pretender. Kerr is mini-Pop, no surprise there.
Sworn Enemy of the Perpetually Offended
Montreal Expos Forever ...
PC seems to have learned from what Quinnipiac used to when they got most of their home games on NESN back in the day. Another marketing coup would involved GETTING PEOPLE TO SHOW UP SO THE COFFIN ISN'T MOSTLY EMPTY but that's a different rant.
Let's continue before China bans all references to Winny the Pooh in Hockey East.
"I have come up with a plan so cunning you could stick a tail on it and call it a weasel. ."
"I'm shocked, shocked to find that gambling is going on in here. "
"They could maybe hire another officer to catch the illegal immigrant drug dealers breast feeding at Dunkin' Donuts or whatever it is! Thank you!"
I have no problem with becoming a retail customer in the usual sense but I'm not inclined to be forced into becoming a member of anything. I don't need any more robocalls, spam, and junk mail than I already get. Looks like I'm relegated to following games via live stats.
"Through the years, we ever will acclaim........"
I will not be out cheered in my own building.
Sacred Heart is building a 4,000 seat on campus rink. Add them as a potential candidate for Hockey East at some point.
Bobby Valentine getting stuff done!
@jimmyconnelly: Have learned some ADs in @hockey_east favor moving away from single-sport league and having all-sport conference administrate hockey. Could be @AmericaEast or another and is far from final, but could also spell the end of Hockey East as we know it. Full story on @USCHO tomorrow.
How ****ing dumb would they have to be to do this
I just looked at the Hockey East twitter page which has very minimal original content. They basically slice up the players of the week video they get from the schools, make a video and post it. Everything else is retweets of conference teams.
America East on the other hand has interviews which they are taping on their own, podcasts, etc.
Why is Hockey East not doing the same thing?
Yes I am the former member known as Zlax45
I will still call it Hockey East
Honestly, we probably wouldn't even notice a big difference if this were to happen. But what would America East gain in doing this?
