I was wondering if professional sports stars got the message that they have a right to protest their complaints with our nation on their own time but I guess Tampa Bay Lightning right winger J T Brown did not get the message. Brown who is one of the few Black ice hockey players decided to raise his fist during the playing of the Star Spangled Banner on Saturday night before the start of an ice hockey game. Now J T is crying the Chagres River (it is a river in Panama) that he has received hate mail and death threats for playing the role of a social activist. I just wonder if he will start a storm of controversy from ice hockey fans around North America for taking a stance against injustice against minorities in America? Have fun J T Brown taking your stand about politics in an ice hockey arena, maybe ice hockey fans will start to boycott this sport too like they did to the National Football League.

I doubt the boycott has hurt the NFL though.

A little bit in the NFL. In my case I have better things to do than to watch The Three Stooges brand of football in the NFL this year.

@JohnRoberts But the ratings were dropping before anyone took a knee or raised a fist this season.

@JamesHxstatic That is true since football today is more like a soap opera than a real football game.
