There is more Cloak Room in Daily Texan than there is in Cloak Room.

Oooooh, challenge accepted!
It’s Iike bad-teammate has no concept of the notion that I have money to make, I have to mold little Beepers into alpha male athlete leaders of men and captains of industry, there are bitches to bang and there is golf to play. I should probably, though, challenge myself and jerk off with him. 

Come play with me at Lakewood. But you’ll have to leave your dip cup at home.

I stay out of the football threads for the most part; the avoidance has zero to do with anything political, it's that football is bad for my blood pressure.

Anyhoo, we've been down this road with football in a different sense just not a contagious one. No one used to care about Spencer's or Brayon's concussion and whether that might make him deteriorate mentally down the road but people sat up and took notice when the parents started pulling their babies out of the sport, enough that it got people paying attention that run the numbers and look at fan support and all the other things I don't know about.

Sure there was resistance, sure there were folks that said, "I played and I'm okay," sure there were coaches that said, "rub some dirt on your head and get back out there," but overall, people at a personal level tend to care about other people with whom they have a relationship. Parents to children. Coaches to players. Players to coaches. Teammates. Fans. The retired teacher that takes the tickets on Friday night that remembers your spectacular playground catch in fifth grade. The further away from that relationship, the tougher it gets. It takes a real leader because the numbers of EVERYTHING including the money get very complicated and large.

But, even with concussions (CTE debate) pushback from those reluctant to change, protocols started happening, safety designs and rules began to change. People may still discuss at length about some of these changes, whether they go too far or not far enough or if they help at all, but in the long history of football they are relatively recent if you think about it. Do you ever think about going back to the 1970s when one could block below the waist? They changed that rule but I don't even think about it anymore. It just is and we've moved on.

So now we have something that is contagious and we are still learning about it and the reactions and debate are ongoing. The health impacts, the economic impacts, the effect of not being able to play. Is it political? Undoubtedly, very much so because with public health there is a policy component in our country that should and has frequently been apolitical but not always. But politics does not have to be concretely interwoven into the "should we have football" question to have the discussion each and every time IMO because you can compartmentalize it if necessary.

My two cents.

Anyone who does not think high school football is not in any way shape or form a political animal is not quite being honest with themselves. Just ask the dads I see who park at the practices.

Go start a thread in CR about it. I may join because my 4th grade son dominates tackle football and I have these same concerns.

Well great news, the local one is having a store closing sale, 40% off lowest ticketed price.  There’s a post office a few doors down.  Rumor has it post office wants to move into the larger Steinmart space as kind of a fuck you to Trump.  The owner-manager of the strip center is inclined to do it with as much TI help as they can give since it beats a decade long vacant 20,000 ft+ end cap.  Turn most of into an expanded sorting center.   Or the school district could take it over.  What the hell are we gonna do with all this empty CRE?   Meantime, imma buy a new pair of cheap khaki shorts.

We’ve had 3 straight good to great recruiting classes. They seemed much improved in the 15 or so games they played last spring. God damn dude. The world is ending and I’m just hoping we can compete for the conference. Let me and the other 5 die hard Texas baseball posters have this. My head is about to explode from the current political climate

1) Our talent level is nowhere near ‘00-‘10. 

2) Pierce sucks. 

3) The world is not ending. 

4) If you can’t ignore the political climate enough to get through the day without your head exploding and thinking the world is ending, I suggest you NOT be a diehard Texas baseball posters.

I’ll continue to follow Texas baseball. Thanks though. What do you do all day? Stare at a fucking wall? Seen all the homeless people in downtown Austin? How about the thousand or so people a day dying from a pandemic? At least there aren’t protests happening across the country. Weird. Almost like if shit were normal, we would’ve had a college baseball season and you and I could either bitch about DP or he pulls a 2018 and gets an extension

Ha my bad dude. Been a hell of a month. Well, really a hell of a year. But fuck it. See ya on the baseball board if we have fall scrimmages. Or you can just hop on the bandwagon after we take 2 of 3 from tech, tcu and okie state. Sweep ou. Kansas state will probably take 2 of 3 cause they’ve been doing that for like 15 years now. God damn I wish we had Elder and Ellis back, but with the arms we’ve recruited, our infield is similar to the 2014 one. Same with our outfield. Let’s see what happens. Do or die David

I will say i did truly appreciate the politics free Football thread for the Texans-Chiefs game last night.

No bullshit.  Nobody even hinted at the political undertones that were absolutely in the telecast.

 

See.  We can behave when it's important.

That’s because everyone in the Football thread is a safe space pussy.

The board Nazis on DT are doing an excellent job. I posted an article about an actress from Jaws that died from covid and it had a subtle anti-Trump hashtag at the end I didn’t notice.  They rang my shit up with the quickness for that. Let the record show I apologized and removed the post like an adult.

Or we know not to tune in until 10 minute after the listed kickoff time. Avoiding all the drama.

Just as long as nobody considers it political to discuss how many bags of dicks the Sooners go through in a season, we should be good.  As far as I know, they don't discriminate based on the size or color of the dicks.

@Poe It Up @GRHorn @Hate

The perfect place to talk about the various foibles and calumnies of/about the CR is here.

I've gotten too many negs in DT to take seriously DTenizens whining about negs in CR. Negs happen, either you care or you don't (I don't, I get negged constantly in both). You can get crowdsourced on sports boards, too. There is no increased resiliency and toughness in DT, you guys are just as whiny and bitchy as anyone else.

Regarding Fozzz's crowdsource, that works completely against anything you are arguing because he (rightly) hates Democrats/liberals and the entire centrist Democrat establishment. His initial sin was a great joke about that stupid fucking wedding being a potential cause of RGB's death. CR is haunted by center-right decorum Dems (many of whom will stop being Dems the moment their income tax raises 2%) so such unseriousness in the wake of NATIONAL TRAGEDY was unacceptable.

I can see that the level of anti-Cheeto hysteria in CR right now can make it appear to be a den of Communist vipers, but really they're just mad that the social-fascist right has control instead of the corporate-fascist center-right. If it really were a den of Communist vipers they wouldn't be so mad at Republicans. And the social-fascists in DT are too insular and/or stupid to know the difference between a furious pro-corporate/pro-prison Democrat and an actual socialist/Communist because they can't understand anything outside the framework of Democrats/Republicans.

There's a reason my profile pic is Clinton at Stone Mountain. Fuck these parties to death.

This is the Cloak Room

 

Mostly left leaning posters. Some of them very far left. You know who you are. Others are actually pretty well informed and if you don’t have your head up your arse and actually reviewed the facts and sources they sometimes provide, you will find yourself changing your view point on an issue.

 

Of course hardly anyone ever changes their view on anything so it always just turns into poo flinging.

 

The right leaning posters that do wade in there get destroyed with negs and people ganging up on them. However, a lot of these right posters have it coming. Their views are either wildly simplistic or just dumb. It is quickly obvious they are very uniformed. Most of these posters have no self awareness. And that adds to the left cabal sensing vulnerability and they go for the jugular with these posters.

 

The remaining right leaning posters that wade in and out are not bad but most get frustrated by the leftist clan and their lack of self awareness of the fact that a lot of the left progressive policies don’t adequately address personal responsibility for one’s own actions, a crucial tenant of American a Democracy. As a result, more poo flinging ensues.

 

The horrific behavior of Trump and the GOP has made the CR even more violent. Every day rinse and repeat.
