Go Canes!

Go Malik and Go Canes!!!

Keoki

F'the Turds!
GO CANES!!!

Go Canes!

Malik's Duke game vs Kaays's career averages:

Give me that and a better job avoiding the rush and I'll take it:

Malik's start vs Duke: 20-29 for 272 with 2 TDs and 1 INT
Kaaya's career avg: 19-31 for 262 with 1.9 TDs and .6 INTs

Soup I love you but I am dissappointed.

What really matters to real men is living free and safe in my own country.

When I walk out my front door the color of my skin makes me a target.

I try not to think about it but its there.

I have been threatened with a gun FOUR TIMES by overzealous police officers. Everytime, they prevented me from getting to work on time.

I dont act suspiciously, violently or steal, but the cops still draw down on me.

I have been choked and tased for NOT RESISTING.

The thing is, people like you dont care, because it hasnt happened to YOU YET!

You were taught to worship this country no matter what and experiences like mine ruin the image you had of yourself and nation.

Theplayers are kneeling before their king, the United States, showing they are powerless in the face of tyranny, yet people are mad? Kneeling has always been about submission.

What makes people mad is the cause itself. Noone cares about dead negros. Never have, never will. They dont want to be reminded about it before their football game.

Go Canes!

No matter what your position is on this, a very well thought out and expressed viewpoint that should be respected.

Well done TruCane.

So now the NFL has taken it a step further by not allowing an Asian by the name of Robert Lee to call a college football game because they feel it will hurt some of the viewers feelings......This country is going the pussy route very quickly....

UMike

Very disappointed in this blog. It is his right to peacefully protest however he chooses to. Him taking a knee to silently stand up against police brutality all of a sudden makes a beloved Cane a POS overnight? Not happy when there are riots or violence, which I agree with, but now people can't even silently and peaceful protest neither. I guess people of color should just STFU and play the card they were dealt...kinda like the Jim Crow days.

We come to this blog to avoid this type of divisive shyt, and come together as one as a cane family. Come on SOUP, don't make this place just another place for us all to pick a side and splinter us more.

TJL

Great article soup! there are countless ways to protest but in my opinion not respecting your flag it out of bounds. #8 and the other protesters should do some traveling around the world and maybe they will really appreciate what we have here

This coming from a guy who calls our QB's (minus NP) garbage?

UMike

Many of us here, especially us "administrators", have gone to great lengths to keep this type of stuff off the blog because of the passion, anger and division it brings. In a country growing further apart each day, this is a place we come together... We should keep it that way. As always, thank you for this place. I will check back in when this passes... Later spacers.

Raize... Calling a while who's spring time stats show he isn't good is a tad bit different lol... We are talking about a current player in the mix for our QB spot and giving an opinion...much different than a whole blog post about a difficult and divisive topic..on a sports blog.

Raize you know you're my boy, and Tom is a friend, I respect all you guys and your opinions..just don't think this should be here on the space...

Football is more than football.

We are all adults. We can handle the ffringe issues.

Just give the respect you wish t9 recieve.

We all fall short.

But we cant hide from these issues.

Vets fought for Duke to have the right to do this but now we wanna take his rights away?

I can't really speak for all races but being black... my race is behind Duke. Why is it a color divide over this should be a question? This should tell you we have a big problem in this country.

I respect ALL VETERANS but for us this is NOT about them

thirstybuzzardcane

If your going to protest, don't disrespect people doing it! There are many other avenues these players can go to show their concerns!!!

Who's really being disrespected??? National Anthem written by a slave owner that is not intended for your people yet you're being FORCED to stand up when it's played???

Where was this outrage before they started playing the anthem before games?

A football game is no place for the anthem... they have NOTHING to do with each other. Do they play the anthem at your job before you work each morning???

TruCane81

What bothers me is there seems to be a divide and conquer agenda.

Because the main stream media only covers police brutality against blacks.

Go online and you see horrible acts of violence committed against ALL americans.

Yes blacks take a lion's share of the abuse, but we are not the only ones being violated!

By making it a racial issue (it is but NOT TOTALLY) people shut down and police power goes unchecked, which was the goal all along.

There has always been an elite class, an over seer class, and a servant class.

The elite class maintains power by using the overseer class to dominate the servants.

Technology requires fewer overseers to control the land, wealth, and power. This is the realreason the middle class is shrinking. The elites dont need them anymore. At least not in the numbers of the past.

Blacks were the biggest threat to the power structure. We have been defeated and controlling us is a simple task.

They are coming for the white middle class now because too many white people are waking up.

Dont let the rape culture nonsense (we do have a rape problem) fool you. Its the same tactic used to demonize black men back in the day being put in play against the new threat.......

THE COURAGEOUS, FREE THINKING WHITE MAN!

Your lives are worsening and they trick too many of you into believing that its the blacks, or mexicans, or muslims, or gays, or liberals, or conservatives. Its not.

Its the elite class that turns the earth's abundance into scarcity so the powerful can control that wh8ch really is scarce.

These are dark times.

Do not be afraid do not be played.

Your neighbor, black or white is your best shot at survival.

Act like it!

UMike

Rosier at least gives us a run option in the offensive scheme. Defenses didn't have to worry about that last year.

Go Canes!

It sickens me to see what's happening in African American communities and the direct role our government has failed them for decades.

Let them protest any damn way they want as long as its peacefully.

The saddest part is how people refuse to look into why they do it, instead looking at how it affects ratings and the image of the NFL cash cow.

400 murders in Chicago year to date and all the media can do is talk about how Nestles Crunch bars or Budweiser is upset cause tv numbers are down for football.

And all the media does is follow around 300 redneck imbeciles and pedal absurd Russia stories all day, instead of doing all they can to save the 600 or more mostly African American young men who'll die on the streets of just one city of our nation by year's end.

It's hard for people to check their egos and question the ideas and institutions they were taught to accept.

YOU/ME are ALWAYS at least 50% of the problem.

We are all responsible, we are ALL to blame.

Let us all fix things together and accept responsibility for change, EVEN WHEN YOU KNOW IT AINT YOUR FAULT!

The MOST respect you can show to a veteran is actually doing something for them or thanking them to their FACE... far as I know the anthem and flag are NOT human beings! This country doesn't even treat it's veterans right when they come home from fighting but yet we should?

raizecane

I respect everyone's point of view....and one thing I know is that there is no way one can change another's mind......so we can agree to disagree on some topics but we can all agree that we are Canes fans.....

I feel you Thirsty. Nothing would be better than to have the EXPERIENCE of america to be able to feel that way about our military, customs, etc.

However, having stared down the business end of a cop's gun while on my way to work on multiple occasions, I get a different kind of chill.

I was taught that those songs about America are NOT for me.

I have to make my own way against an old foe who feigns friendship and peace, while meddling with my people the whole time then pretending it does not.

We have to respect EACH OTHERS experience and find the middle ground that connects us as people.

All prosperity has been attained through such cooperation.

Are we up to the task?

Oh and my condolences for your father's passing Soup.

I buried my father in June and it was the hardest thing I ever did.

Be strong.

Go Canes!

The whole statue thing is yet another embarrassing deflection from the issues that plague our nation.

Worry about young men and women being massacred in the streets, a rampant opiod epedemic, special interests stopping us from having access to affordable healthcare and the rampant lies coming from the media and the White House.

We've let the fringes define and control us. The other 300 million people in the country feel abandoned and without a voice.

Well written article soup. It is amazing to me how patriotism is dead. People have grown to hate the one country in the world where any person of any color can make a decent life for their family. America is the country that is ground breaking on race. We are getting taught differently. If we tear into the infrastructure of this nation it will be a scary end.

Canedolfan386

Thank God for patriots like your Dad. Thank God for the last great generation. What will this next ground breaking generation be called? What selfless acts will they be honored for? God please have mercy on America. Thank you for standing in this forum and time. It is hard to just be an American. Everyone demands that you pick a side. Because of all the propaganda we are getting fes.

After 9/11 you had every pro athlete wearing police and fire fighter hats during games. Patriotism was amazing then and now look how far we have fallen today. What happened between then and now? Who should we blame? Its a shame a terrorist attack is the only reason people unite together.

Talking about the Rosier news on Twitter yesterday and a CANES fan got pissed at me and told me I drive a forklift and I'm waiting on my welfare check to come.

This is the type of $hit we're TIRED of!!! Not once did I call him out of his name or say anything negative about him.

Sorry... I'll get back to Canes talk now... just needed to get that off my chest

I have great respect for those who have died in battle and greatly appreciate your perspective and especially with the recent events I understand your feelings. That being said...

I very much disagree with one main statement "We will no longer respect you, cheer for you or attend your meaningless..."! In writing this article on this blog you should only be commenting on your personal feelings and not speaking for others. Your use of pronouns are incorrect for this type of commentary as it is personal feelings. Some on this site will agree and, as you have seen, some will disagree.

I am still very sorry for your loss and know personally how difficult it is to lose a parent. I sent my condolences when you posted in the feeder the news and did not say anything when an entire blog posting was added for something outside the realm of content here because I know what you were feeling. I personally believe that you should take a step back from posting any more editiorial while you focus on the process of grieving. The editorial and comments are very dividing and are bring strife to a website and blog you have created to bring together a family.

I have never been one to submit articles for blogs, although I have a journalism degree, but myself along with others on here I am sure are willing to take on some responsibility to continue this as you handle these incredibly personal matters.

We respect you Tom as a man, a son, creator of this domain and simply a human being!!!

Additionally, would someone contact me about where I should submit blog posts or anyone who is also a moderator and has articles on the agenda?

I posted about that after CR and agree. The only thing I'd say is the opioid crisis is a relatively new epidemic while the exploitation and systematic failures of so many in helping African Americans rise reach the heights they should be at has gone on for generations.

All while our government wastes trillions on special interests, unnecessary wars and government bloat, all to remain in power.

I never thought I would see a heroin epidemic in Polk county.

BOY WAS I WRONG.

Same gameplan as when heroin and cocaine flooded in during the 1970s, except they used mds instead of street pushers to get the populace hooked.

They cut the supply of presriptions and now people are going to the street version.

It is the SAME pattern implemented for the same purpose.

Its just Johnny and Suzy from the suburbs are the new threat to be pacified, not Leroy and Meeka from the hood.

thirstybuzzardcane

The running back position is the least of my worries!!! We are fine there, probably better than last year.

UMike and others...I have been on this blog for ten years. Yet in 2007 we were not having political conversations, even though there was intense debate about the Iraq surge at the time and about the financial collapse in 2008. What had changed in the last three years that everything is now right or left, that everything is politized? I lack the answer, but it is troubling to see it so impassioned. Canespace is not an anomaly, it's a microcosm of the larger issue.

Its the media discourse, Tony.

The proliferation of talking head news has turned every subject into a childish debate of insult over facts.

Our news and entertainment have grown ever more adversarial and combative.

We went from the Cleavers to the Bundy's in just 30 years and the vitriol has seeped into every aspect of our culture.

The goal was to make us see ourselves as individuals, rahter than as a people. It has worked phenomenally well.

We used to agree on common solutions for common problems. Now 0eople vote against their own personal welfare to toe extremist ideas on all sides.

The truth is usually in the middle. Nobody is "wrong" in their opinioins generally speaking. The pr9blem is we cling to the truth TOO NARROWLY.

Truth is simple. But the nuances by which truth is applied to life,thats more complicated than breaking down the genome.

Let control our emotions and state what we feel without insults or inferiority.

This may help us f8nd a truth that can enrich us all w8th the prosperity we desire and deserve.

Good observation. It's called GTFY... Google, Facebook, Twitter, YouTube. Everyone is now using AI to figure out who we are and to get more clicks, feed us the info that is aligned with our views.

If you watch a lot of survival videos, more survival videos will be suggested to you. Unfortunately, if you tend to click liberal media news, more liberal media news appears. If you tend to click conservative media news, more conservative media news.

So there is a tendency for people who do not take any additional effort to look over the fence to think that theirs is the only legitimate view.

An offshoot example was PizzaGate, where the Russians manipulate the whole eco-system to manipulate the election.

Shout out to everyone it's been a long timeeeee, but i heard the CANES are coming really soon.

Don't know how to feel about Rozier starting, but i trust Richt and i def trust this DEF to keep us in the games and to win games for us.

Hope yall are doing well my brothers and sisters.

Shoutout to everyone whether you kneel or stand for the anthem, whether your black, white, orange, green, blue etc. lets not let people divide us lets not let hate set us back. Equal treatment for everyone lets love and live in peace.

UMike

It's a self segregation of the mind Calgary..like you said people educate themselves on social media or whichever news station pushes the ideas they like. I know this place is full of different opinions, political views, religious beliefs etc, but I know at the end of the day the vast majority of you would have my back if needed, and I would yours. Sadly the rest of the country does not act like this. People will dislike you because you are one one "side" before they even get to know you. For me, I would do anything to help any of you MF's...even Lurker (like if I really really had to) not matter your views as long as those views aren't hateful. Love all your sick bastards...

That being said I want to focus on Canes with my time here

Correct on my above post*****

Well said UMike and Calgary.

Once you let the fringes of society become the voice in your head of any "side" you're doomed.

Very few republicans are bible banging racist and just as few democrats are socialist snowflakes.

The overwhelming majority believe in slightly more or less government involvement and/or responsibility in our daily lives. And most don't agree with all their party stands for.

Sadly those two parties are long, long gone and as I said before, the loudest lunatics have become the faces and voices of both today, destroying what was once a great checks and balance.

In my adult life my political party never mattered. Today it seems to be all that matters.
