Loss of protest unity, will team suffer



  • I think Michael Bennett has the right to sit, stand, stand on his head, do backflips, whatever, during the Anthem. Some hate it, some don't care, etc... while my mind thinks he should do what his heart says, my heart occasionally wahts to kick him in the nuts... that's the emotional me.

    I was impressed with the Hawks unity, both in locking arms and in sitting in the locker room during anthem time - those were examples of team unity. The unity was gone today. Bennett was sitting, Sherm was standing with folded arms, Wilson and Richard were standing hand over heart... all without their unity.

    Once they lost their unity, I believe that the team will suffer in some way due to what's happening. It's impossible for the unity to fall without effecting the focus in the game. To be sure it's a physical game, but it's a mental game as well. I fear we're losing the mental game.

    I'm glad it's not my decision, but you can't throw a professional team season for social issues... or can you?



  • I would say they aren't throwing anything for this season.

    You perceive it as "loss of unity" because your heart occasionally wants to kick them in the nuts.

    They looked good in this win and I do think players are capable of more than just playing the game.

    Nope.

    I believe I addressed my reasons for my suggestion of a lack of unity. 'Tis simple, they weren't united. Duh

    I didn't say they were, I simply posed a question. Duh



  • Lose the attitude. Sarcasm doesn't work as a go-to communication method.

    If you don't like my answer/opinion then just say as such. Be an adult and stop acting like it's your first time on a forum.

    Nine players sitting for the anthem; all DL starters. Didn't seem to affect them.



  • No I didn't see much of a divide tonight at all. Guys seemed to be pretty well on each other's sides.
