A college football team should have the name of the college......


and the player name is optional. I get an additional number or patch to honor a deceased player or coach but this political movement thing on the football field needs to be nipped in the bud. I would guess at least half the people want to watch a football game not get in a political argument in the stands.

Whatever happened to using their time to make a point and send their message? Community service and advocacy groups used to be the way to make a difference. If people can't turn on a TV or walk into a stadium to get away from politics and the "real world" for a few hours what will they turn to? I think more people will be golfing, fishing and painting their homes. After a hard week of work it will be tough for many to digest having politics crammed down their throat. This, coupled with the covid 19 may end some athletic depts and possibly some colleges. Once the bridge is crossed it will be hard to walk it back. Hopefully ECU makes some sound management decisions and offers avenues for people to express their opinions without turning DF Stadium into the GTL.
