    President Trump is a genius !!!! By baiting the NFL, NBA, commissioners,coaches, players and media he is letting themselves “OUT” themselves as American flag hating, liberal, identity politicians – and by their own statements have done more damage to the NFL and NBA as having values 180 degrees in opposition to the center right county attitudes. Ha ha they just couldn’t keep quite and now they proven themselves to side with the radical left position – forgetting that by and large, sports fans are on the conservative side. Pete Carroll should have just S T F U and made a statement about how they are going to work hard to win the next game, but nooooooooooooooo….

  • SCgrad12

    Hey Pete, as the grandson of a United States Marine, I’m going to exercise my Constitutional rights by telling you to kiss my a** and call it love story.

    • CORTEZ THE KILLER

      As a father of a Navy sailor and Army Officer, I say F*** YOU PC !

      • Trojans 6942

        Absolutely. Apparently it’s divisive to stand up for our country and our flag. Yet while divisive and having personal and political views its love and quote justice. Bull-****

    • Ben Factor

      And you’re an army officer? Did you serve in the army at all? I see, so you’re resting on your grandfather’s laurels. How brave!

      • SCgrad12

        I never said I was an army officer. Did you fail basic reading comprehension genius?

        • marvgoux1

          That’s what libs do. That clown and Codependent George are insufferable.

          • Ben Factor

            What was odd to me, at first, was the almost unanimous political ignorance and naivety of the conservative commenters on this board.

            Some of the FB commentary was fun and insightful, but outside of that, nada. Good news, goux-ie, I’m busy again with things outside CFB, so you won’t be suffering my presence nearly so often. 🙂

        • Ben Factor

          You forgot the comma before “genius”.

          My father, too, served in the army, and during wartime. And all my uncles, and my aunt, as a nurse, and lots of others.

          Personally, I have never liked Colin K. as a QB. I suspect his troubled upbringlng is more responsible for his stance than his racial background. In addition, I agree with Jim Brown that these anthem protests provoke hostility rather than empathy. Nonetheless, there are plenty of unequal treatment issues to be addressed.

          The Donald is a neurologically impaired, long-term money launderer for the Russian oligarchs, who lapsed into conspiracy with Putin. Mueller advised Manafort that he could expect to be indicted, and Manafort continued regular contact with the Donald throughout the campaign.

          You can kid yourself for now, but Trump will ultimately resign or be impeached. He simply was caught in too many wiretaps conversing with others who were the subjects of FISA warrants or European intelligence services wiretaps. And Trump may still be indicted after that, and in any event, will finish his life as an outcast. His son-in-law is very likely to be indicted, and his sons.

    I could care less about politics tonight. I’d rather relish a Trojan win and a SUCLA loss by generously allowing the Tree to hang “58” points on the board!!! 58!!! LOL!!!

    • Pete

      I’m with you. 58 points. Unbelievable. It looks lik Stanford has found their QB. Lucky for us we played them when we did.

      • marvgoux1

        They have 3 quarterbacks that can beat f uucla like a drum.

          Could you believe how poor fuulca’s players are? It was shocking to watch them collapse after Theo Howard dropped that TD pass.

          • Michael Guarino

            Oh, yes —I could believe it, marv. In fact, I expected things to go that way when the going got tough. It’s the way Mora teams play….[although, I have to hand it to Rosen —-he kept getting up off the turf…again…and again]……

    Hey, Pete – send out a text defining “change” as you see it.

      Hey, it’s the professor here. Now I see you more clearly. You consider PC a leftist? Please… You think being a citizen is separate from being a coach? Maybe in Atlanta.

      • marvgoux1

        It’s the dunce BenGay.
        You don’t consider PC a leftist? Please… he went around telling us to vote for the socialist Barack Obama. You think we want to be lectured about Black Lives Matter by a football coach?

  • steveg

    Pete says he will STAND with his players. He didn’t say kneel. Why he said anything is beyond me. Trump simply expressed his opinion, it wasn’t a directive. Everyone has a right to an opinion.

    • Traveler

      Our current POTUS is unlike any other before him in that his opinions are uninformed, unintelligent and unpopular to 65% of all Americans. In short, he’s a 2-bit attention seeker. Nothing more. That alone disqualifies him as leader of the free world.

      • marvgoux1

        Yes those same polls that told us your heroine Hillary would be the current POTUS. Luckily she was once again disqualified to be leader of the free world.

      • gotroy22

        troller returns!

      • SCgrad12

        Why? Because he has the juevos to call people out on their hypocritical BS? If Pete was so concerned about this, why didn’t he sign Kaepernick to begin with? I’ve got news for you. It’s hard to feel sorry for a person who will make more in four hours of work than some AMERICANS will make in a year. It’s also hard to feel sorry for a person who will make more in one year than some AMERICANS will make in their entire lives. When viewership hits an all time low, which it is on it’s way to, then you’ll see Idiot Boy Goddell and the owners take a stand against this. Speaking of Goddell, why aren’t the players protesting him? Isn’t he trying to suspend one of their brethren six games based on flimsy evidence of domestic abuse? Again, a bunch of ill informed hypocrites.

        • Traveler

          He has very tiny juevos, for starters. There’s a big difference between being bold and being boneheaded. Trump has perfected the latter.

          When you come off your high horse, try to learn something about WHY the players are protesting. Then get back to us. As is, you seem clueless…

          • SCgrad12

            O.K. genius, why are these multi millionaires protesting? Aside from the fact that it’s the flavor of the month protest item. Is it the fact that police officers, who put their lives on the line every day, are doing their job? In the course of their job they are sometimes required to use deadly force. Again, what exactly is their grievance? You libs are really good about raising a fuss, but 95% of the time you cannot tell the rest of us exactly what your gripe is. Let me clue you in on something, you protest the American Flag in any way, shape,or form you are barking up the wrong tree.
            Here is another fact. As of today guess who has the highest selling jersey in the NFL? Alejandro Villanueva, a West Point graduate who served three tours of duty in Afghanistan, and a Pittsburgh Steeler offensive lineman, who showed real courage while his cowardly coaches and teammates stood in the locker room.

          • Traveler

            Bust a vein, Gomer. Reading your hysterical rants, it’s difficult to imagine how you ever got accepted at SC. Or do you work in the facilities department?

          • SCgrad12

            Exactly, you have no intelligent rebuttal so you so go to the liberal playbook and start calling me names. You forgot to mix in racist, homophobe, xenophobe, etc. Go back to elementary school, junior.

  • GT

    The world needs more people like Pete and less like the Donald!

    • Arturo

      Insulting people like 45 does no good. Everyone has a right to their opinion, but cursing and insulting groups of people- always minorities it seems- doesn’t seem presidential.

      • marvgoux1

        Disrespecting the country does no good. You liberals are destroying the fabric that holds the country together. If we can’t even agree to disagree and honor the flag at the national anthem then we can’t agree on anything.

      • Michael Guarino

        I wouldn’t ordinarily get into a conversation like this on the internet —but I like and respect you, Arturo —so let me suggest a possible explanation for the lack of, say, ‘appreciation’ for Pete’s statement that we’re witnessing on this site. While an extraordinary coach, Pete has proven countless times that he cares for only 2 things (1) Pete and (2) the bottom line (in that order). So when Pete writes a jacksy-offsky Manifesto and sends it out to the world, it arouses a certain amount of suspicion (in the sincerity department).

    I don’t know what any of this means. Nobody said you can’t stand with your players, actually that’s what Trump told them they should do when the National Anthem plays.

  • hoohoolianFUCLA

    Say it ain’t so Pete.

    Siding with the Dividers in the name of not being divisive?

    • Traveler

      Clearly, if one isn’t blinded by partisan politics or unable to reason because of low IQ, Pete Carroll is 100% correct… as are the 65% of Americans who don’t support the Divider In Chief. Clearly.

      • marvgoux1

        Clearly you are blinded by partisan politics and have a low IQ so you have to mock others. Obama divided this nation like no other. Keep on quoting your fake news polls in your DNC talking points you parrot.

        • hoohoolianFUCLA

          Incredible how the micro-minds assume politics in my post (where there is none — saying the kneelers are dividers is not political), state politics and then blame the infusion of politics.

        Partisan politics says Trayvon was murdered. Forensic evidence says the opposite. Aboma unlawfully tried to make a federal case out of it and THEY FOUND NOTHING to support any wrong doing.
        Trayvon is a major piece of the BS Kaperscmuck movement which is THE divisive, hate-filled call for dehumanizing police officers. Michael Brown as well.

  • jkstewart2

    Pete, I’m confused. You are wrapping yourself in the Constitution and claiming to be against divisiveness. However, aren’t the players making the their protest while 0n-the-job? It would seem that the NFL supports BLM and other progressive causes. We all know from numerous firings that a private company doesn’t have to allow employees speech on company time. In fact, it doesn’t have to allow employee speech on social media or private time. Doesn’t seem like a Constitutional issue to me. And, isn’t the substance of the protests about special right categories, inherently divisive? I guess I can’t remain silence….I encourage everyone to take the season or lifetime off and stop supporting organizations such as the NFL that loot taxpayers to pay for their palatial stadiums. We need to silence the wholesale use of steroids and growth hormones by sanctioning the players and the teams. We need to convict players who commit crimes. We need to convict bribe taking government officials that give payoffs to the NFL (can anyone say Oakland Traitors). Finally, their needs to be an investigation into the NFL to find out why they racially profile and why 75% of the players are black….not a single native American player….must be racism
