Black Lives Matter Messaging at "The Stadium"

What I’ve noticed with people is everything they disagree with is somehow political, but the things they agree on is apolitical.

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. 

This is really disappointing. As a fan of 50 years, I thought that I had seen it all; WIDE RIGHT,  HOMERUN THROWUP, THE DROP as well as all of the losing seasons and playoff defeats (many of which were heartbreaking). BLM is an organization that is anti-family and anti-white. I cannot express my feelings tany better than what Marcellus Wiley said about his lack of support for BLM on his show a couple of weeks ago. I really hoped that the BILLS would have not supported this organization and can only hope that they make better decisions about this in the future...

There was a time in this country when religion and politics were not talked about openly

 

And we weren't at each other's throats. There is no reason for politics to be water cooler talk. There's way too much complication and passion involved

What, pray tell, does "anti-family" mean?

Ummm BLM still matters... I am fairly sure (without the benefit of DNA analysis) both Nicole Brown (ignore the color of the surname) and Ronald Goldman (again ignore the color embedded in the surname) were white.

Everyone was making fun of OJ. We kept his name up. That should count for something.

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.

 

 

 

My 1st reaction to this post was WTH?! Smoked a bowl thinking it would help me understand your post. Read it again and...WTH?!

BLM Stadium does have a nice ring to it...

And if things start to go bad for the Bills this season, they can pull the 'L' off of it ......

Tushy might also chip in to help cover the costs!

Like I said above:

Since we've already touched on CHAZ, which do you want to talk about next? Charlottesville? The Wisconsin Sikh Temple Shooting? The October 2018 Mail-bomb attempts? The Pittsburgh Synagogue shooting?

If you're truly concerned about terrorism on American soil, I suggest you write your local congressperson about the rise of extreme right-wing domestic terrorism in the United States over the past decade.

Yet more whataboutism. Shocking.


You ever tried to boogaloo to James Browns third album ?

Right now I believe it is named simply “The Stadium.”  Donating the name for a year (Be it to BLM, Roswell Park, Veterans, First Responders, etc) is an interesting idea. 

It will always be Ralph Wilson Stadium... Even when New Era tried I still called it the Ralph.

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

 

The whole movement is way beyond the 2-3 people who started it and have full control of the website. They are no longer leaders of the movement and it's been that way since almost right after it started. They simply came up with a slogan that was widely adopted and took on a life of it's own with the more simple message. Let's be intelligent...actually do real research and not find reasons a nit pick here.

Like a lot of people have said in this thread. I think there's a huge difference between supporting black people.. and supporting blm

 

You can only go about what that website says for the actual BLM movement

 

I think you could support black people without supporting that movement

 

I 100% support black people. I have never been told or taught that their lives don't matter and they absolutely deserve respect and the equality

So to you a woman that wants to raise a child without a man is anti-family? Why do you get to decide what a family is?

The fact that a national anthem exists at all is massively political. That explains why it does so many people a sad when someone kneels during it. No one is harmed, yet the rage and threats ensue.
