if someone is going to NOT take a stand because they might be fined, then they probably don't care as much as Kevin did. I don't think the fine is a big deal. it almost makes it more meaningful. I mean if you go on strike from work, you don't get your paycheck. I'm not saying I support racism or the decision to fine, just that people with enough heart to stand up to something like this won't be swayed by a few dollars. especially athletes with cushy salaries. this way there is a consequence,...

I'm not saying I support racism or the decision to fine, just that people with enough heart to stand up to something like this won't be swayed by a few dollars. especially athletes with cushy salaries. this way there is a consequence, just like in real life, and it becomes more meaningful. people that speak out for justice almost always suffer for it, that's why it's noble. everyone would do the right thing if it were easy. not saying it's a good or bad decision, just that it's the way things usually work. see what happens if I stand up for what I believe at work. no job, no rent money, out on the street. these guys prob don't have to worry about that.

Racism! What an absolutely stupid concept. We all sweat the same, bleed the same and cry the same. We all want peace in our lives and a better world for our children. If the team owners can't understand such a simple concept, then we clearly have to boycott them until they learn to feel the love.

Racism is stupid, hurtful, demeaning and always, always wrong! There is no excuse - ever! I support the players leaving the field, The message needs to be loud and clear - Racism will not be tolerated! Those in authority should support the player's actions, otherwise they're siding with the ugly racists - they should be removed from the ground/s! Always!
