Post by Purple Power » Fri Sep 04, 2020 9:09 am

Ok its six days til the new season kicks off, and i'm ready for some action. Let's hope this Viking team gets through the season with explosive plays and high scoring. Purple People Eaters are hungry and ready to chew up the season. I got my purple jersey, hat, and pride ready for the Vikings season . GO VIKINGS.

Given how it appears the NFL is going to politicize itself, does the moratorium on political conversations still stand when discussing the nfl. Can sports and politics be separated at this point in America?

Yes, we will continue to adhere to the board rules of no politics.

This is obviously a very unique year with some extraordinary circumstances so I'm sure certain things will surface but try and use your discretion.

There are so many other places to discuss politics, and frankly, it never gets anywhere anyhow. Most of the other boards I roam have plenty of I am not going to/I am going to ... watch/not watch ... or otherwise participate in ... because of this/that/the other. Then it just becomes a pissing match. So I am glad to have some respite, despite having may own strong feelings on this/that/the other.

Just looking forward to some football, which has barely been on my radar due to this/that/the other. It will be a respite, and I hope it is something that as fans, brings us together.
