Missouri football players sitting out games until President resigns
Mizzouri's football players ( at least many of them ) and coaches have said they're going to sit out, effectively strike, all games going forward until the university president resigns due to some alleged unresolved incidents on campus regarding racial slurs.

Well, the team, a recent addition to the SEC hasn't been doing so good this year anyway.

RE: Missouri football players sitting out games until President resigns
Of the team’s 84 scholarship football players, 58 are African-American.

Contract between BYU and Mizzouri for saturday's game:


Quote:“The parties agree that if one party cancels, forfeits, unilaterally delays or postpones, or fails to appear at, any game (there and similar actions hereafter referred to as “cancel”), actual damages — including those relating to public relations, radio and television broadcasts, lost profits, and other consequential damages — would be difficult or impossible to calculate. The parties further agree that processes, including litigation, to determine damages would be both unnecessarily expensive and time-consuming. Therefore, the parties agree that if one party cancels (hereafter, the “defaulting party”) any game or games, the defaulting party shall pay as liquidated damages to the other party One Million Dollars ($1,000,000) for each cancelled game, to be paid no later than thirty (30) days following the scheduled game.”

I also feel the media is stretching this a bit, if 58 of the black kids sit the game out, I'll be shocked.If they have to fortfiet the game, a 1 million payment is going to be bad news for the university.

RE: Missouri football players sitting out games until President resigns
I can't really take anything a college student says these days seriously. They are so desperate to be the star of their own "struggle against all odds" movie they don't see how they really get fucked: student loans, "career" advisers peddling dipshit degrees and an economy increasingly stacked against the average person.

I have no doubt that racism exists on campus -- are the examples cited in the article really all they have? -- but safe, feel-good protests like these allow the system they claim to hate so much rumble on, completely undisturbed.

Yeah I don't know the specifics either.

But from the article:
Quote:"The athletes of color on the University of Missouri football team truly believe "Injustice Anywhere is a threat to Justice Everywhere," read the tweet.

Sounds like par-for-the-course SJW outrage.

Also:
Quote:"Racism does exist at our university, and it is unacceptable," he said.

African-American students said the gestures were insufficient and issued a set of demands calling for school officials to implement broader cultural sensitivity training, increase minority staffing and take other steps.

So despite the fact the campus president made an admission and by all appearances wants to work on the issue, the horde demands sensitivity training.

I'd rather live in a country where if a white guy aggressively calls a black guy a nigger to his face, he gets his ass beat. I think that's a healthier scenario than these dipshits complaining about "microaggressions" and calling for sensitivity training of all things. College sports are now turning into boardroom politics.

No you don't. First it will be anyone who utters the word "nigger" getting their ass beat.

But if you allow that, anyone who feels slighted (racially or otherwise) will have the right to inflict violence, provided he has the larger posse.

Eventually, it will amount to nothing more than a right for anyone who has a bigger gang to inflict violence on anyone who he wishes to.

I can assure you that violent actions committed by members of the mafia were actions that those individuals felt entirely right in taking.

The best society is one there is no justification for violence beyond self-defence.

RE: Missouri football players sitting out games until President resigns
I read that someone put up a swastika made of human shit. It's well known that anytime one of these outrageous things happens and gets blown up in the media, it was a SJW that did it to attract attention.

As for this college president, he already made the mistake of apologizing as a response to this faked outrage. I guess there is some student that is doing a hunger strike over this. The president ought to go on TV eating a delicious, juicy, hamburger, loaded with all the trimmings on a premium bun.

As for the striking football students, he ought to ignore them long enough for them to miss a couple of games, and do irreparable damage to all of their careers. Then, after he's fucked all of the people who started this, he ought to start some kind of committees of recrimination, and then call nearly everybody on campus into a witch hunt, then resign and live a good life.

This university is finished. All current students will be reluctant to even have a degree from this place on their resumes.

Compare and contrast the bolded words. We are talking about different scenarios.

I'm not talking about legality here. I'm talking about reality. If you talk shit in life, be prepared to fight. That's all, and that's a reasonable expectation in any society on Earth.

This is a new thing?

I thought East Asian American football and basketball players have been sitting out for decades to protest racial preferences in college admissions?

Huh

RE: Missouri football players sitting out games until President resigns
If we live in a world where people can get violently beaten for saying some stupid slur regardless of intent, then I better be allowed to own a weapon in case some idiot tries to escalate.

Do you think most people would care if they're called wops, krauts, and kikes?

Words are words. It's time they stop meaning anything:

Boondocks called this out a long time ago




Their endowment is $832 million as well. If the trustees and president want to send a clear message they could forfeit the entire season and "release" the players costing nothing more than a drop in the bucket for the amount of money they have. A year and a freshly trained and recruited team later no one will remember this strike.

There's going to be a day when there won't be white people in power to roll over when such weak offenses occur.

My own alma mater is going through tough times as well. Some RAs were offended that a cop insinuated that active shooters are people of color or muslim. Eventually student government voted for no confidence against the president. When asked, most students couldn't care less and were busy studying, partying, and doing what college kids do best.

No, we aren't. You give anyone the power to be judge, jury and executioner and it will be entirely up to them to decide what qualifies as aggressive. Cooler heads won't prevail.

Good luck being the individual who gets to sort things out later when the victim of a brutal attack claims that there was nothing aggressive about his use of the n-word.

You're not being realistic at all. Legality has an unquestionable involvement here. Sooner or later, you're going to have some who just wants to beat someone up who will use this as justification to attack someone who never used the n-word in his life.

Your idealized world where people can resolve the differences without involving authority figures is one that would only work if everyone had the same definition of "aggressive" and where everyone was well-intentioned and never lied.

In your imagined world, shit-talkers wouldn't be forced to shut-up. Instead, the more violent members of society would be free to talk shit all they wanted, whereas anyone without a gang membership would be unable to open his mouth at all, because even a perceived slight would result in an underserved ass beating.

Violence doesn't solve anything. It just forces people to separate into factions prepared to war with each other.

And now they can take their 4-5 record and go back to being irrelevant. They most likely just wanted some attention whoring and this was the only way they could think of to get it

Glad you brought this up. This is the same university and football program that produced that fag Michael Sam. Once he faded into obscurity they pulled this shit to get another 15 minutes.

Good for them. I wouldnt work under those conditions either.

Football players should be striking to get paid as well though. Still don't get how the Universities get away with it.

Let me clarify here: the option to walk away is always there.

I'll simplify things a bit. Let's take the racial element out of this.

Someone aggressively verbally accosts you. You:

1) Walk away
2) Escalate physically with threats of violence (or outright pre-emptively attack)
3) Complain to the powers-that-be about microaggressions and the need for safe spaces and sensitivity training

Number 3 on that list should not be an option.

Glad you brought this up. This is the same university and football program that produced that fag Michael Sam. Once he faded into obscurity they pulled this shit to get another 15 minutes.

It's more than that though. Let's be honest, these football players probably aren't the brightest bunch. On top of that, they're too busy with football and school to pay attention to everything that's going on. Therefore the reason they're all protesting is because they've been brow-beaten into adopting the outrageous group-think on this subject.

Can you imagine if one out of the dozens of black football players said 'Guys, this is really stupid. Let's just play football.' He'd be ostracized. This event is just a microcosm of the larger cultural Marxist trend.

Also, I think it's inevitable that more of these situations are to come. SJW's just have too much power. Think about the President in this situation. You have students protesting, going on hunger strikes. Your football team going on strike. How are you supposed to deal with that without capitulating? Any action that doesn't give favor to the SJW's will be deemed 'racist' and would inevitably lead to his ouster.

College is starting to become more and more irrelevant, and this is coming from someone who is 'pro-college.'

RE: Missouri football players sitting out games until President resigns
Just saw a clip on ESPN of a pack of "students" dancing and flailing about wildly in a celebration of their triumphant victory ousting their evil white President, thereby ending racism forever. Totally ruined my lunch break. What the hell is going on in this world today? College used to be the place to be rebellious, exchange new ideas and speak freely, now the college kids are worse than the jack-booted thugs in dystopian novels. Have the "community organizers" and the paid agitators from Ferguson just been re-stationed in Mizzou, because this definitely seems like an organized BLM type of protest. Very disturbing and sad on many levels, i'm scared for these younger generations and the future they are creating for the world.

The get away with it because they give poor minority kids a free education, food and housing, while also providing a chance for the kids to remove themselves from the ghetto. Simutionusly while everyone else takes out student loans and busts tables at chili's.

Not much else they deserve in my opinion.

If they got paid for their labour, they wouldnt need freebies.I'm sure they are bringing in more than they cost.

The whole vibe I'm getting from commenters on this situation - In this thread and elsewhere , is that these guys should be good negros entertain the fans, make millions for their college without rocking the boat.

Fuck that.

Football players should be striking to get paid as well though. Still don't get how the Universities get away with it.

The get away with it because they give poor minority kids a free education, food and housing, while also providing a chance for the kids to remove themselves from the ghetto. Simutionusly while everyone else takes out student loans and busts tables at chili's.

Not much else they deserve in my opinion.

If they got paid for their labour, they wouldnt need freebies.I'm sure they are bringing in more than they cost.

The whole vibe I'm getting from commenters on this situation - In this thread and elsewhere , is that these guys should be good negros entertain the fans, make millions for their college without rocking the boat.

Fuck that.

Also important to note that 'opportunity' can be snatched away at a moment's notice should a player be injured. Schools can choose to not renew your scholarship for bad play/injuries or just not fitting into a coach's system. Thanks to this little "loophole" created by the collegiate powers-that-be, a kid's family can be left holding the bag for unpaid medical bills & tuition.

The promising kid is only useful for as long as he can sink that 20 footer or tackle a ball carrier behind the line of scrimmage. Basically you are disposable and replaceable, and the NCAA will not let you forget it.
