. . . NFL will allow social justice phrases on helmets this season . . .
I see they'll only allow some social justice phrases - the ones that are politically pre-approved. 

MAGA is not among them.

Nor is my preferred phrase - EFF THE NFL
Trump won in 2016. Democrats haven't been so offended since Republicans came along and freed their slaves.

Wish I could boycott them again... but they lost me some time ago. Might be the are trying to make a play for a more loyalty from the half the country they decided they don't hate and wish to be dead.
I wish the Ring had never come to me. I wish none of this had happened.

So do all who live to see such times. But that is not for them to decide. All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us. There are other forces at work in this world, Frodo, besides the will of evil. Bilbo was meant to find the Ring. In which case, you also were meant to have it. And that is an encouraging thought

"NFL" ?? ??

Nautical Fishing League?

Nebish Fraternity Losers?

Nicely Finished Lasagna?

What is this "NFL" of which you speak? Is game?

I stopped paying attention to the NFL a year or two ago almost completely.  This is probably the first year that I never had any temptation at all to watch.  There was a time when I was younger that I could name the 3-deep line up for my team.  I liked watching the backups play in the 2nd half of pre-season games.  No more.

I figure if I didn't go back to football last year with all the Bucs excitement, I've kicked it for good.  For a while after I decided to not support them, stories of their idiocy would still annoy me, but now I'm genuinely ambivalent.

Useless people doing useless things.  I'd rather go to the range.

That range of yours is a way better, and much more fun, use of your time. Similarly, it is a major reason why I have never been into watching all these millionaires on the TV. There is so much more fun stuff, including sports related (and defensive training can certainly be a "sport") stuff I can be doing. I'd much rather go to the range, or go fishing, or take a cool hike. Or heck, just spend the couple of hours one of these matches run and do a good workout. Better for both body and mind.

I have always preferred to do a sport rather than watch someone else doing a sport.
