Athletes Forcing Change
« on: June 27, 2020, 05:13:25 PM »
Since there is now a coordinated movement by our athletes should probably post something here. Note that this will be the only post on the football (or any other sports) board for politics and solely for discussing this. If you want to be dicks go to the pit to do so. If you want to be racist pieces of crap go to any other KSU message board.

Happy the kids are taking a stand and fully support them crushing our sports programs if the school can't figure its crap out in a way that the kids agree is sufficient.

K-State Sports is doing this the right way.  This will be an interesting next few months for the administration. So far I'm not impressed after the wimpy but expected statement that was released by Richard Myers this morning. This school needs to enact a policy of some sort that punishes hate speech and racism because frankly this is rough ridin' ridiculous.

Pretty great to see the balance of power shifting a bit to the players.

Yes it is. You are on the national stage, use your platform. It is so heart-warming to know the staff is behind them 100%

K-State has a very real opportunity to show, at a national level, that they aren't a bunch of hicks. They are almost guaranteed to eff that up, so the kids forcing their hand is absolutely needed.

Love these kids, good for them. The Bama BLM video was great too and honestly is the kind of thing that drives change.

College athletes are like the only students we hold to high standards so it’s nice to see them returning the favor.

What the athletes want is punishing a person for constitutionally protected speech.

This isn't going to end well.

You have a right to say nearly whatever you want and not be legally punished by a governmental body. However, it does not permit non-criminal repercussions from a private institution, or in this case, specific policy by a public institution. For instance, you can be removed and banned from a public library for vulgar or even loud discussion. That said, I dont think the university is likely to enact such a policy without major legal challenges, and it very well may lose that battle. If it went that far, they could claim social media creates a hostile environment due to sharing and spreading of that message. Ultimately, I think the outcry by the student body will be too much for this lad to bear....I doubt he will continue to attend K-State when classes resume in person.

Uh, what?

The first amendment prevents the government from dictating what folks can say outside a few exceptions - eg threats to others, yelling fire in filled room.

Hate speech, specifically, is protected.

Government policies that preclude free speech are unconstitutional.

This is such an obvious situation and it went completely over the student-athletes' heads.

Pretty rough ridin' stupid.  They want a policy put in place to be able to dismiss a person from the university for being disrespectful. What a clown show.

Just go beat up this individual piece of crap person who attends the university and said stuff on Twitter and move on.

easy for you to dismiss this guy as just being "disrespectful".

oddly enough, beating up this guy would CLEARLY be grounds for dismissal

No, I’m talking specifically about the statement from the athletes. “We are demanding that Kansas State University put a policy in place that allows a student to be dismissed for displaying racist, threatening or disrespectful actions toward a student or groups of students.”
