NCAA ISSUES RULES RE SOCIAL JUSTICE MESSAGES

Postby jhart » Fri Jul 31, 2020 5:05 pm

College sports teams may wear a patch on the front and a message where name is normally placed but these are anything but normal times.
Each conference and individual schools must approve.
No student athlete I understand will be compelled to participate but what is the definition of the word "uniform"!
More information should be forthcoming shortly.
I for one like college sports for solace and a break from the real world for two to three hours not to have to see political statements.

If you allow social justice issues you have to allow them for all sides. This will open a can of worms when someone's justice message is denied while others are allowed. The lawsuits will be flying. A bad decision. Let sports be free from this as jhart said.

Well said Jhart. The media is full of political news as is FB and we all need a respite. We didn't need politics brought into the arenas any more than it was before this year. Having slogans on unies for me would be like pop-ups blocking the screen I'm trying to see. I didn't ask for them and paid to see something I do want to see. And if it's allowed, who is the arbiter to determine approved from denied and are they ready to be sued? What a mess!
