Keoki

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.

Once again people are missing the point!!!

Good for Duke. Do what you feel is right my dude. Exercise your first amendment right, it the American way.

SAY DAT PASTOR!!! ūüíĮ

UMike

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...


TruCane81

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.

WWIN

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!!!

There is a time and place for this and the national anthem isn't one of them.

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.

thirstybuzzardcane

Good point, Go!

Go Canes!

600 more /\/\/\

Now this... we AGREE on!!! ūüĎćūüĎć

TruCane81

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.

ALWAYS.

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!

You don't get the chills when you hear the words of the anthem and those jets fly over? To me, that's probably the most respect that can be shown to the people of our country who fought for our freedom!

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?

*****************************

The same can be said about statues but you see what is happening with that.....just saying.

TruCane81

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.

That is pretty interesting..I'm hoping to make it to that LSU game

TruCane81

The last dynasty ended with a beat down to LSU.

Can we start the new one by returning the favor?

raizecane

Anybody paying to watch the Mayweather / McGregor fight? If I hit the Powerball I will purchase the fight and all of you are welcomed.... :-)

TruCane81

No but got an invite.

I love pay per view.

Just gotta get more cash.

Company has business in Dallas now, will be planning to attend the LSU game at Jerry's World.

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.
