    So we should boycott the NFL draft because one out of the hundreds of players who will be drafted was accused, but never convicted (nor even charged), of sexual assault?

    I just realized I have been boycotting Olbermann.

    Keith can be the only one sitting out for both, since pretty much all he does is his show and nothing else on the WWL.

    A good number of sports fans are not stupid. They know about Mayweather's deal and the troubles of the NFL, and yet they're going to be parked on their couches next weekend and watching every minute of the draft and the boxing match.

    Consider me one of them.

    Unless Olbermann wants us to boycott it because of Rice, Hardy, et al as well. If that's the case, then I would be interested to know the percentage of current and soon-to-be drafted players who have been charged for domestic assault. And then compare that to the percentage of those in the U.S. in general within the regular population.

    Olbermann is an ambulance chaser.

    I wish people would boycott the fight, but I know it's not realistic. I hate the fact that the POS Mayweather is so damn rich. He'll fuck it up eventually though.

    I am boycotting the draft because watching it is an enormous waste my of time.
    SFIND and MTM like this.

    The fact that Mayweather is a woman-beater is exactly why I want to watch, to hopefully experience him get his ass beat.

    I don't think it'll happen, but I can hope.

    I'm surprised that people are surprised that I am rooting for Pacquiao.

    People are surprised by that? I don't know a single person rooting for Mayweather.
