Black Lives Matter Messaging at "The Stadium"

Recommended Posts

It hasn't hit the news yet, but as of this morning the Bills converted the video boards around the exterior of the stadium from their usual purpose of playing highlights (24/7, even in the dead of night in the dead of winter) to tools to convey the message that "Black Lives Matter" (in white text over a black background).  It's good messaging to employees reporting to work for the first time this season, and it's an interesting approach given McDermott's ambiguity with respect to kneeling for the national anthem and the Red Sox messaging of last week.  

 

It also caused me to wonder whether the Pegulas will donate the name of the stadium for the season to a charitable cause in the absence of a naming rights sponsor.  I'm not sure Black Lives Matter Stadium would apply to a particular charity, but it might be something the NFL would like.  To the extent the Bills identify a worthy charitable recipient, I wonder if the value of the forgone naming rights deal might help a bit with respect to taxes. 

 

In any event, good on the Bills for putting those video boards to good use.

he wasn’t ambiguous as much he was simply avoiding controversy by saying he will always support the players. It’s actually refreshing to see the maturity of acknowledging there is a conversation around the topic of kneeling during the anthem as opposed to the childish thought process that one must pick a side and the opposing side is wrong/evil/stupid/racist/unpatriotic etc.

I'm DONE with this team. With The Stadium. With the NFL. How dare they post messaging that says black lives matter. What about the other entitled races who hate anything they dont feel included in? Its boils my blood anytime I hear the phrase "Black Lives Matter" HOW DARE THEY LEAVE US OUT 😡

Your going to get blasted for that remark on this board.

 

But i here what you are saying 

Setting that is sponsored by the democrats goes against everything the NFL stands for.  I do not qualify for the 1200 check or unemployment. A lot of people have and some of them have not even had a job for 2 years but they still get the 600 a week. I was in the military and was shot at albit from drug rulers but I do know what it sounds like when small arms hit your helicopter. I also apply every year for grants to 5 different cities to work on my rental properties I never get any money 20 years friends always do.

Granted since college my best friends are 

 

Muslims (turkish)

Porta ricons

And 5 what I call my brothers and they are the fun ones always there for me and each other since I have no family.

He's really totally not wrong. Go to their website and it's full of marxist ideologies

 

Of course black people's lives matter. but their website is full of anti-family and Marxist ideas. one sentence on their website says their goal is to disrupt the Western nuclear family
