        Are individual schools allowed to have their own rule? Kind of like how states make their own rules and ignore federal laws? If so, I hope UF nixes this idea and doesn't allow it. Too much opportunity for personal grand standing imo. Sports is supposed to be about us, not me.

            To your question earlier, unfortunately, this is why. The powers that be won't allow the two aspects of life to be separated. We're commingling everything now, whether fans have any desire to see it/discuss it/even think about it, or not.

            It's become complete garbage. Regular fans like us want nothing to do with this, but simply can't escape it.

                That’s my only issue...sports was an escape where we could come together no matter the views or opinions of each individual to support our team...the gators have long been my only solace other than fishing and this is something I could always share with my kids at home...I’m lost in the weeds like most of you now wanting to go back home to normalcy

                    If angry Eagles fan going to explain things to depressed Dolphins fan.. we need context. What could a dophins fan who hasn't seen any true success since the Cowboys won their Super Bowls on VHS tape (maybe early onset of DVD) have said to Eagles fan who ran off their Super Bowl MVP winning because he wasn't a red head injury prone jerk off, to get in his crawl.

                      Sadly, J and I both have an affinity for the dolphins. I went my own way when I was 7 and inexplicably chose the Eagles. I'll still kind of pull for them on the AFC side due to family.

                      But no, he didn't say anything wrong to me, and I didn't intend to come across that way. I was just referencing his question in another thread about the constant infusion of politics into sports. Regardless of world views, most of us don't want anything to do with this recent marriage. It's spoiling something that has been great for so long, and is doing so almost intentionally as I haven't seen anyone requesting this type of new rule. It's being crammed down the throat of everyone.

                            This will last only as long as it takes for someone to put the “wrong” political opinion on his jersey. Schools are going to find that if they allow one player to express their support for BLM, they are also going to have to allow another player to write “MAGA.”

                                  I have never seen a truly happy well adjusted liberal, they don't exist. Their best attempt at being happy is to make everyone else miserable too.

                                          Our community sprung up when the Gatorsports message board was shut down in the summer of 2014. We pride ourselves on offering Gator-biased, yet critical discussion among people of all different backgrounds. We are working every day to make sure our community is the best Gator message board you will find.
