Seems like we're having two different conversations. You can let it be whatever you want it to be. Sit, stand, I don't personally care. I was offering a general consensus for those who are confused by a very basic idea.
i don't get the general idea. What sacrifice are we respecting with our display of fealty to a flag and a song?

What is the point?

It's a hypothetical roll call. Would you stand up and fight if the greatest power on earth was knocking on your doorstep? Or would you stick a finger in your ass and capitulate?

LOL @ the argument for WNBA players to make the same as NBA players. They are lucky they have a league at all. Boys High School basketball games get more attendance than their shitty league. It's embarrassing. And most of the tickets are free from corporate sponsors. Nobody is paying to see that garbage so why should they make what the men do? I can't believe she makes over $200k a year. That's insane.

Women have a beef with other sports on making as much as the men - soccer, volleyball, porn,, etc... But not basketball. GTFO.
Not to mention the league is subsidized by the NBA.

100%. Reports are it loses $10 million a year. It's probably way worse. They just need to end it. It's a huge waste of money.
Indiana Fever's average attendance this season is 1,780 people. LMFAO.

But some people legit think they should be paid the same as the men.

Maybe those people should go to the games. Pack the stadiums. Watch it on TV. Buy merch.
If enough people did that, it would be a valuable commodity and the women's salaries would be on par with the men.
But it isn't. So it's not.

I got in a discussion with a granola-eater who truly believed it was bullshit they didn't get equal pay. I shut her down with a quickness.

In his new special, Bill Burr makes note that if women really think they deserve equal pay, they should attend WNBA games... but nobody gives a shit.

This particular gender pay gap, as with any related to sports, is about butts in seats. Money.
Who's paying to see it.

It's the reason Conor is rich. It's the reason the WNBA is propped up by the NBA.

Hard to believe it's been on life support for so long now

oh- so it's a question of whether or not I'll blindly follow people because we were both born near each other.
patriotism and nationalism are vestigial emotions that are used to manipulate people in to acting against their own best interest and in the interest of the powerful few.



When they took the real roll call, I picked up a rifle and stood my watch.

Ya'll can have your cosplay, your national Prayer of the Pharisee, whatever it is.

Being an American means holding true to the Rule of Law and Limited Gov't, neither of which are represented by prostrating yourself before a symbol of power.

We're definitely having two different conversations. How would the lyrics to your anthem go? lol

no worries, I thought this was about Britney and her not respecting the flag/national anthem

" Griner said Monday that she believed “we should not play the national anthem during our season,” ... Like Colin Kaepernick and others in sports, she is clear that her message does not concern the military or the flag. It’s about police brutality and social injustice."

Wild @Wild gave her the Full-Sera on being locked in a Ruskie prison for 9 years over a vape cartridge based on her stance regarding the flag/anthem.

why should i support or stand up for her? why would i support a person that kneels for the causes she does but would happily ruin my life over words she finds offensive?
