Mike Evans Speaks: “I Know I Hurt A Lot Of People”

November 16th, 2016

MikeEvans2Mike Evans was swarmed by media at his locker today. You can guess the topic.

Evans apologized to those he hurt with his decision to sit during the national anthem last Sunday as a protest of Donald Trump winning the presidency.

Evans also said he would start reaching out to minorities, who he defined as “the people that are in fear of Donald Trump and his presidency.”

He also clarified that he tried to vote in his home state of Texas, presumably with a mail ballot, but was too late.

Enjoy Evans’ full audio below, via WDAE-AM 620.

    Good football player, but not the sharpest knife in the drawer.

  2. SOEbuc Says:

    Uuuuuuggghhh can we please get over this. People burned his jersey, he said he’s sorry, they love him again. End of story.

  3. Chris Says:

    I was upset about it. But I think most buc fans are relieved it’s over, and willing to forgive. We understand his intentions were not as disrespectful as his actions seemed. It took a lot of courage to admit he made a mistake. Me, like most fans are going to put this behind us. I hope Mike does continue to stand up for what he believes in, but is also mindful of the fact that his position in this community comes with certain responsibilities.

  4. 813bucboi Says:

    BS….I lost a lot of respect for you mike….you gave “them” exactly what “they” wanted….a black man to shut up and stay in his place….be a man, stand up for what you believe in…screw those who are against you because you have/had supporters that would ride with you…..glad to see KAP staying strong….DIRK=JIM TOMSULA…GO KAP…GO BUCS!!!!

    aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand here we go again

  6. OnlyGodnoles Says:

    I wonder what the reaction would be if a white athlete decides to protest the obama presidency?

    If Trump planned a coup or instigated a revolution using weapons then I can understand ME’s stance but this was a democratic election. Everyone had a vote, for crying out loud even he admitted he posted his vote late so really he has no excuse to start whinging right now. I can’t support him on this issue he is dead wrong and am African American.

  7. Dave Says:

    Just play football
    The NFL would be well served to just require their employees to stand. Let them whine and cry about an election (and actually have some legitimate protests about an injustice) on their own time.

  8. The Buc Realist Says:

    I, like many Buc fans are already moving on!!! ME13 made amends and now it is about “The Team”!!!!!! And I would not be surprised if Head Coach Koetter but a ban on all political talk in the locker room!!!!! ( Joe should think about the same thing!) But we all watched a boy become a MAN when he apologized for the lack of consideration that his action had that day, and what that day was about!!!!! All is forgiven in this ledger!!!!! Now Back to FOOTBALL!!!!!

    Go America!!!!!!

    And Go Bucs!!!!!!!!!

  9. Jacko101 Says:

    Dave it is his time. Just as they can stand they can sit, kneel, or do jumping jacks. They aren’t puppets, reporters can ask whatever they want and the players can say what they want. When he practices and plays in the game that’s what ur paying to see. Anything else is his right. Worry about yourself and not his choices or rights.

  10. 813bucboi Says:

    @onlygodnoles….tom brady refused to go to the white house to visit president Obama….other white athletes have done the same thing after winning a championship….no one said a word….DIRK=JIM TOMSULA…GO KAP…GO BUCS!!!!

  11. tripblood Says:

    You’re pathetically SOFT if you were enraged or hurt or whatever overreaction you had to Mike Evans messup. I don’t care about your political position, but when a man THIS divisive wins the presidency it is going to legitimately be an issue.

    Mike Evans handled this like a knucklehead. But you know what? He manned up the next day and admitted he was being one. His hearts in the right place.(kid grew up with a white mom in texas, people should be empahetic to those who have been subjected to any racial BS because the guy who just got elected is a anti-progressive nationalist)

    So to that I’m proud to have Evans on this team and all the hics that burned his jersey go root for the Dolphins because I don’t want to hear your mouths open 🙂

  12. LakeLandBuc Says:

    It looks like, the only jersey I will be wearing is my Colin Kaepernick Jersey. Too bad Mike, apologizing for ( your freedom to protest).

  13. OnlyGodnoles Says:

    @813bucboi I support Kap he is protesting the treatment of African Americans by the police, last time I checked shooting of unarmed black men is not a democratic process. The election is a democratic process we don’t live in a banana republic where the likes of Mugabe and Chavez rule the roost this is America jack home of the brave where we have elections and people respect the elections and we have peaceful transfer of power. If ME doesn’t like that then let him vote on time like everybody else or move to Zimbabwe where the leader is black if that is his prerequisite for any elected office.

  14. 813bucboi Says:

    @only….we cant he protest here?…why does everyone that is against Kap or was against mike say they should leave?….why is it when a black man protest, the people against him say move back to Africa?…..we should let the native American decide who should stay and who should go…I mean it is their country that was stolen from them…..

    I lost respect for mike because he gave “them” what they wanted….a black man to shut up and stay in his place…..stand up for what you believe….DIRK=JIM TOMSULA…GO KAP…GO BUCS!!!!

  15. The Buc Realist Says:


    he can protest all he wants!!! But when he is at work, where his work place has strong ties to armed forces, that play the games on the armed forces network across the world!!! and when it is a salute the services on Veterans weekend. There are a hundreds of ways to protest without turning your back to the armed forces of this Great Nation!!!!!!!!

    Maybe if the anthem is so intolerable, maybe they should stay in the locker room until it is over!!!!!!!

    And If ME13 wants to protest and march against the President I am all for it!!!! I might even march with him if he comes to St Pete!!!!!!

    Go America!!!!!!!!!!

    And Go Bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  16. LakeLandBuc Says:

    813bucboi, In a few years the people that voted for Trump will be protesting him. I guarantee it, Babylon is falling.

  17. jerseybuc Says:

    It was a dumb idea in the first place. It is an election where half the country voted for Trump. You don’t always get the person you want. This is a democracy, electing to sit during the National Anthem accomplishes nothing to change that fact. If he was so involved in the political process I would think he would have at least voted. He didn’t. He got bad advice. His agent probably sat him down and showed him that alienating half his fan base is not good business decision. Let’s move on and talk about football. Go Bucs!

  18. softastissueMcCoy93 Says:

    Why no one ever talks about the original anthem that talked about killing runaway slaves?

    “Their blood has washed out their foul footsteps’ pollution.
    No refuge could save the hireling and slave
    From the terror of flight, or the gloom of the grave”

  19. lightningbuc Says:


    Donald said we are gonna win so much we will get tired of winning. He’s wrong. I’m not tired of winning yet. Watching you and your ilk get your granny panties all wadded up is a beautiful thing!

  20. Larry Says:

    I stated that I thought he should be cut BUT I accept his apology.

  21. LakeLandBuc Says:

    While Mr Trump has asserted it was “ultimately” the luck of a high draft lottery number that kept him out of the war, his Selective Service records “suggest otherwise”, The New York Times reported.

    “Mr Trump had been medically exempted for more than a year when the draft lottery began in December 1969, well before he received what he has described as his ‘phenomenal’ draft number,” the newspaper claimed in an article published on Monday.

    The American newspaper also said Mr Trump could not recall exactly when he was no longer bothered by the spurs, protrusions caused by calcium built up on the heel bone, but that he had not had an operation for the problem.

    “Over a period of time, it healed up,” the newspaper quoted him saying. It also pointed out that Mr Trump played squash, football and tennis during high school and picked up golf while at Wharton.
    It went on to note how his longtime personal physician, Dr Harold Bornstein, announced in January that Mr Trump had “no significant medical problems” over four decades and that, if elected, he “will be the healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency”.

    A Draft Dodger is President and people are complaining about Mike Evans disrespecting the Veterans and the Country. Oh well, that’s Babylon for you

  22. KY Buc Fan Says:

    What you said softastissueMcCoy93!! That song was chosen and edited for a reason, 1 they hide behind instead of telling us how they really feel!

  23. BigHogHaynes Says:

    183bucboi: I like the way you think! Nice post! Only___noles: NOT MY PRESIDENT…and I voted but I ain’t going to Afrrica or no other place because I don’t know anybody there even though that is my Mother Land but I do know a racist, bigot when o see one, when I hear his words of divisiveness + I know too many Jack/Asses here to want to leave…..it’s entertaining…..TRUMP what a colossal F*CK UP!! This too shall pass! GO COLIN BIG MIKE U DISAPPOINT BUT WE UNDERSTAND STEP/UP AMERICA!!

  24. Rrsrq Says:

    He didn’t sit down for the Armed Services Medley, because those are the songs that represent each branch of the military. The National Anthem is a song of the country and it hasn’t represented all Americans, never mind, back to football, play ball Mike, my kids still gonna wear your jersey and never thought about taking it off

  25. salish_seamonster Says:

    He should not have apologized. I understand why he apologized, but I think his protest was righteous.

  26. 813bucboi Says:

    @realist….if he protested in st. pete it wouldn’t get the national attention it deserves as it would if he did it at a stadium full of people on national/local tv….it brings more awareness to the situation…..what would you and people that were against mike say if he sat in the locker room?…it would be the same thing….people would be saying how they don’t like him any more for his peaceful protest that they didn’t even witness…..he said it wasn’t meant to disrespect those who serve our country….he gave his reason for his protest….

    @Lakeland….I would say that but I know people will blame the future struggles of this country on the previous president…..its falling indeed….

    again why do people always say go back to Africa when a black man demonstrates protest?….this country belongs to the native americans….DIRK=JIM TOMSULA…GO KAP…GO BUCS!!!!

  27. The dom is gone Says:

    Idiot has been here 2 years and didn’t take the time to register in his district and get out of bed to go vote! Why don’t everyone that is protesting Trump winning be equally as mad at Mike for not voting the other way because he was simply to lazy.

  28. BigHogHaynes Says:

    The BUC REALIST: this is a simple thing, stop thinking you and people like you can tell another free-man what and when and how to exercise their rights! His way is never going to be your way! For when you try to impose your way on another…….Slavery is over! That goes out to all yall with a problem with this man living his life in the pursuit of happiness!!! STEP UP AMERICA!!

  29. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    Everybody makes mistakes…..but it’s how you handle them that determine that final outcome. In this case, ironically, Mike Evans may end up better off than he would be if he never made the mistake in the first place…..truly turning chicken $hit into chicken salad.
    And for those who think it wasn’t a mistake…..Mike apologized so he felt it was.

  30. Axmickl Micklos Says:

    No Mike, you didn’t hurt a lot of people with your pitiful act on the field. But ,you did hurt yourself.We will not be quite as proud to see you on the field in the future. not because you disrespected our flag which many ot us fought for but because you put up a great big racial wall between us. A wall we are tired of trying to climb over.

  31. martinii Says:

    Move on from Mike, he will be fine. On a purely football related note looks like we picked up a veteran defensive lineman today Sealver Siliga, recently waived by Seahawks. 345 lbs, waived Chandler. Should help with DL depth.

  32. martinii Says:

    Sorry Channing Ward, Hey I’m old.

  33. Matt Cavallo Says:

    Ahhmerrruhiuhcuhhh….. Ahhmerrruhiuhcuhhhhhhhh………. Americaaaaaa, @$!# yeaaah! We’re gonna save the motha@$!/’n day yeaauhhh. Americaaaaaa, @$!# yeaaah! Freedom is the only way yeaauhhh….. terrorists your time is through, cause now you’ll have to answerrrr tooooo…. AMERRRICAAAAA, @$!# YEAH!

  34. The Buc Realist Says:

    Maybe when the Seahawks come to town 2 weeks from now That the whole stadium will sing together!!!!!!!

    I’m proud to be an American where at least I know I’m free!!!
    And I won’t forget the men who died, who gave that right to me!!!!
    And I’d gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today!!!!!
    ‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land God bless the U.S.A!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  35. mike n Says:

    is this still a story? Have to love the media. He didn’t vote and then looked like an idiot by protesting. #13 is a good guy, and like a man explained an apologized.

  36. Dave Says:


    No it is not his time. He is at work. The employer can shut it down. Can you go to work and protest?

  37. LakeLandBuc Says:

    And where is that band who so vauntingly swore,
    That the havoc of war and the battle’s confusion
    A home and a Country should leave us no more?
    Their blood has wash’d out their foul footstep’s pollution.
    No refuge could save the hireling and slave
    From the terror of flight or the gloom of the grave,
    And the star-spangled banner in triumph doth wave
    O’er the land of the free and the home of the brave.
    The mere mention of “slave” is not entirely remarkable; slavery was alive and well in the United States in 1814. Key himself owned slaves, was an anti-abolitionist and once called his African brethren “a distinct and inferior race of people.”
    i would piss on the National Anthem and the Flag

  38. Hawaiian Buc Says:

    Moving along.

  39. LakeLandBuc Says:

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ The Original National Anthem^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

  40. tripblood Says:

    Again, fools please speak for yourself.

    Mike Evans will continue to get a crap ton of support from 95% of the fan base who 1. Never even will hear about this. 2. Acknowledge that he apologized 3. Realize he isn’t so crazy when Trump is impeached (already tapped head of Breitbart as a key member of his cabinet…it doesn’t get more disgusting than that)

  41. Ocala Says:

    I appreciate the fact that he apologized but if he would have continued his actions I would not have taken my family to another Bucs game this year.

    It may be small potatoes but his apology will allow the Bucs to sell five more tickets to at least one more home game.

  42. Dewey Selmon Says:

    It’s ok Mike, let’s move on.

  43. tripblood Says:


    To the question about going to work and protesting. If I was an asset to the company providing for half it’s production (Evans) the reality is I can do whatever the heck I want to. As long as Evans keeps producing he can start doing the Macarena during the national anthem.

  44. tripblood Says:


    You assertion that Mike sitting out the anthem had an impact on you going to further games is either a flat out exaggeration or you are very soft and setting a bad example for your family as a man.

  45. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    #TrumpSucks #ShouldHaveBeenJohnKasiach

  46. softastissueMcCoy93 Says:

    Also, the original flag was not created by Betsy Ross, the flag was created by an unnamed slave that the Ross family own.

  47. softastissueMcCoy93 Says:


  48. LakeLandBuc Says:

    You STOLE New Mexico, Texas, Arizona and California ( From the Mexicans). And now you call them Illegals. We are dealing with Pure Evil here. I know you all are out in forces, buying Turkeys, Hams, Dressing, Pies etc. To celebrate the Genocide of the Natives. Happy National Genocide ( Thanksgiving ) Day.

  49. Ocala Says:

    I guess you insulting me on a sports website and my decision on going to a football game is how you define my manhood or what kind of father I am to my three children

    I’m not going to get into me and my family and our military background on a sports website but with the majority of my closest friends still in the Air Force I would feel I was sending the wrong message to them and my children if we went to a game and our team did not show respect of our national anthem.

  50. Seminole Bill Says:

    Mike Evans made a terrible mistake; not because he didn’t have the right to protest – he does – but because he put himself above his team. Sports should be the one place we can go to enjoy watching athletes do things the rest of us can only dream about and, get a nice respite from politics. Now, his teammates have to answer the question whether they support him or not, when they should be thinking about how they can beat those evil KC Chiefs. Play football, Mike, and keep making those awesome catches on 3rd and long. Leave politics for the off-season.

  51. The Buc Realist Says:

    Others will say that we saved New Mexico, Texas, Arizona and California!!!! Manifest Destiny!!!!!!

    And the Genocide of Turkeys will commence!!!!! I know mine will be fried and delicious!!!!! Bon Appetit Everyone!!!!!!

  52. SB with Jameis Says:

    Just for $hits and giggles the other day I asked my 9 year old to tell me what the American Flag stands for. He said ” It stands for all the soldiers that fought for our country and freedom” …………
    Glad you finally came around Mikey.

    It looks like, the only jersey I will be wearing is my Colin Kaepernick Jersey. Too bad Mike, apologizing for ( your freedom to protest).
    Do you STILL not get it??? He has ALL the freedom in the world to protest!!! His method was Wrong not his Stance! I fought for his right to protest. Sitting out the National Anthem has ZERO to do with Trump. ESPECIALLY when you didn’t vote Against Trump. Too late my bahonkus. Luckily someone explained the difference in HOW to protest.

  54. cmurda Says:

    This has been beaten to death and I don’t knw if this comment has already been posted because I’m too lazy to read them all…. but if M.E.’s home state is Texas then the vote wouldn’t have made an impact.

  55. Dreambig Says:

    Lakelandbuc – If you hate this country so bad, really why do you live here? You are a free man. Why live in a place you hate so bad, with history and white people that you obviously completely despise. Why not find a place that will make you happy?

  56. cmurda Says:

    You taught your boy well SB with Jameis.

  57. The Buc Realist Says:


    I know you are Angry right now!!! But here is an idea, If the National Anthem offends you so much, Why not try to change it!!!! Start a grass roots movement, a simple facebook page and educate people on why it is offensive to you and needs to be changed!!!! try to get Kanye West or someone in his Posse to write a new Anthem!!!! ( though as a back up have that nice girl Taylor Swift to write one just in case!!) You can use the Framework of this country to enact change!!!! Think about that, someone who is downtrodden, can rise up and change something very significant in this country!!!! And the framework allows it to happen!!!!!

  58. cmurda Says:


    I’m a little surprised. You’ve been on JBF for a while and I never took you for a racist person. When you say “you” in your recent posts, it seems you are talking about us terrible white people. How dare we pay taxes to help out the less fortunate. Said system has set the less fortunate back 100 years. I’m all about helping folks that are struggling to find work. Instead of welfare, we should now design a system that hires these folks to help build and maintain infrastructure. Now, these folks would feel a sense of worth as they are contributing to society. The worst thing that has ever happened was welfare or whatever the correct terminology is. Food stamps were really designed to make sure children were taken care of but, like most social systems, has been poorly managed which is why virtually anything can be bought with them such as cigarettes etc which do nothing for children. That’s us white people’s fault also. Here I go talking politics again. Darn it. Look, as I’ve said before if I were black, I very well might see this all differently but that’s my 2c. One question I do have though is why do I hear Mike Evans and many of those protesting say “minorities”? Why don’t you grow a pair and just say black people. I haven’t heard Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans etc complaining at all. In fact, if anyone has a right to complain, it would be any of those three groups.

  59. orlbucfan Says:

    We have got a heavy duty challenge ahead of us on Sunday, 11/20 at 1PM EST. WHY ARE WE STILL DEALING WITH THIS???

  60. BuccaneEric75 Says:

    President Obama had 8 years to lobby congress to change the national anthem. If he thought it was offensive, I would imagine he would have tried.

  61. orlbucfan Says:

    I am a lifelong political Futurist. I’m a 64 y.o. educated female Bucs fan. Why are we still dwelling on this crap? We have got this game coming up against the Chiefs at Arrowhead at 1PM on Sunday. Get off the politics Joe!!

  62. cmurda Says:


    In a one word answer, I would say the “media”.

    I have to defend Joe. This involves a Bucs player and is relevant right now.

    Also, the opinions we all give should be healthy conversation. That’s what is supposed to happen right? Isn’t that what Colin was looking for? I think it can lead to positive outcomes if we can all act like adults even if we see things differently. At the end of the day I might be a white dude (Italian American) but I’d gladly sit in the foxhole next to Boi Dog Haynes, Realist, Lakelandbuc, SB with Jameis just to name a few. I know we are all on the same team when we watch the Bucs every Sunday.

  63. cmurda Says:

    Big Hog Haynes…

  64. The Buc Realist Says:


    You know it brother!!!!!!!!!

  65. Trey Newton Says:

    Having been blessed to live in this country, I have also been blessed to travel outside of this country. We need to all figure out ways to be way less decisive. Things like the national anthem at a sporting event should draw the collective together. Having gone to Brazil for the confederations cup, inexperienced true need for protest. People were kicked out of there homes, relocated to make room for stadiums. Hospitals, schools streets in disrepair. Corruption within the government was plain to see, but play the national anthem in a stadium, bar or restaurant or just in a room with a bunch of Brazilians and you stood up, period. There are problems within our country and the faster both sides quit yelling and make concessions to work together, the quicker REAL progress gets made. The more we fight each other, the more the WRONG people are empowered

  66. DB55 Says:


    You my man and all but real quick, you can’t buy cigs with food stamps. Second, dems pay taxes too. Furthermore, dems will pay more taxes as trump plans to get rid of the “head of household” credit which should disproportionately affect single mothers. Finally, Obama has been lobbying to rebuild our infrastructure for years but repubs wouldn’t have it but now that Trump wants to do the same it’s a brilliant idea.

  67. orlbucfan Says:

    Hey fellow Bucs People (back in the Stone Age that how Beatles fans addressed each other:-)): I am all for talking politics especially now. This last election was super bad news. I worked the Sanders campaign in east central FL. That said, I get on my Bucs blogs so I don’t freak out when these results come in. I have two beloved hobbies: politics/current history, and NFL/Bucs football. I know how the tRump manipulated the corporate media. Mike Evans did not cast a ballot. So, he’s just hot air period. He’s a great WR talent. I rest my case. Now, can we get back to the fact that we face the Chiefs in Arrowhead Sunday? Go Bucs!!

  68. Tb501 Says:

    Go Mike go Bucs win on Sunday stand uo,sit or whatever you like.Know this I’m rooting for you to have a big day.

    @DB55. I respect your points. Hey, I’m not exactly in love with Trump. I thought they both were horrible candidates. Whoever won the election would get my support. So, before we jump off bridges, let’s see how it goes first. We’ll impeach him if he’s as bad as some of you think he is. Either way, I roll with whatever happens. I’m not moving to Europe even if the Bucs do.

  76. DB55 Says:

    I thought they both were horrible candidates.
    Agreed! Should have been kasich v sanders with kasich winning. Imo

    What’s Trump going to do to minorities?
    Hiring Bannon as a chrif advisor is worrisome to say the least. A few things off top, it’s completely realistic to think roe v wade, gay marriage, affirmative action, and this might be extreme but again not completely out of the realm of possibility encampments for Muslims ala Japanese in WWII.

    Consider this, the pain and frustration that repubs feel over the economy and jobs is how minorities have ALWAYS felt. Hence the civil rights act 1964 and affirmative action. You get the fact that we couldn’t get jobs simply bc of the color of our skin. He’ll trump went to court bc he wouldn’t rent to “colored” people. Come on bro!!!help me help you, 1 nation under God with liberty and justice for all!!!!!!

  77. SB with Jameis Says:

    I didn’t vote because one candidate wore a douche and the other candidate Is a douche. I couldn’t live with supporting either one. As a “German Irish” american who fought for this country and voted for Obama, I think that is saying something.

  78. SB with Jameis Says:

    I think you can’t say douche

  79. DB55 Says:

    I thought they both were horrible candidates.
    Agreed! Should have been kasich v sanders with kasich winning. Imo

  80. BigHogHaynes Says:

    I’m all in @cmurda!! GO BUCS!

  81. cmurda Says:

    @DB55. Funny thing is I sort of liked Bernie. Yes, Kasich would have also been better. I like the idea of free education though. It’s a novel concept when you think about it. One that could help us all out in the end. It would be worthwhile spending.

  82. KingBuc17 Says:

    Great job Mike, realizing you made a mistake and used the wrong forum. Total distasteful for an All Pro to “protest” our national anthem. This country has its problems but it is still the greatest country on earth, and should be honored.

    I live in Dubai, you want inequality, come live here for a little while.

    Plus nobody cares about the American hater, backup QB sitting, he won’t be on a roster next year. So he can go find another forum with the boatload of money he stole from the league. Hope he moves to another country so he can see what inequality is like.


  83. tripblood Says:


    Yeah because I find that overreaction is an indictment on your character. Your example for your family is “we aren’t going to enjoy something we otherwise love doing on Sunday because of my PERSONAL distaste for what a player does before the game even begins”…it’s silly and does show a lack of skin.

    You probably are a very nice guy honestly.. and a good dad. But I question your reaction here. It’s extremely childish and your setting a negative example.

    Shut up, leave your politics at home, and enjoy the game with your kids buddy!

    I think the term you’re looking for is “Hitler-arious” Ha!
    As for your question. Trump has been on record saying he would work to reconstitute Stop and Frisk, a tactic that has been deemed Unconstitutional by our Courts for one.
    He seems to gather and rely on (false)statistics originating from White Supremacists relating to Back crime. Who know what policies he’ll dream up motivated by people in his admin armed with false #s looking for… If not the FINAL solution, something more recognizable to modern America.

  86. Buc1987 Says:

    DB…that’s silly talk.

    Affirmative action ended a long time ago. Realistically as you say. America elected it’s first black president was the cherry on top of that.

    Chan…are you worried about being stopped and frisked cause you’re black?

  88. Buc1987 Says:


    No problem overturning roe v wade from me. Realistically… in 2012, 41 percent of respondents stated they consider themselves pro-choice, meaning they would leave the decision to abort a pregnancy up to the pregnant woman. Pro-life supporters, which made up 50 percent of the respondents in 2012, on the other hand, oppose abortion altogether.

    This is not a Democracy, it’s a Constitutional Republic.
    I’m okay with Evans apology, sincere or not. He had to do it. I’m sure the Bucs told him how many Season ticket holders were bailing on the team because of his antics. It would have cost the Glazers huge money and fan support. The NFL is not the forum for political statements by these overpaid children. But I’m accepting of it and moving on. Yes we all make mistakes and he did the right thing to correct his.

    Sorry I have to find the filters before I go to bed. If I’m going to ask a question and people retort to nonsense. I have to respond Joe. DB I’m splitting up my original post. I’ll help you through this off JBF through email if you like.

    I’m with those 50% people who oppose abortion. You can be who you want to be. This is Merica!

    “encampments for Muslims ala Japanese in WWII”

    Not extreme. Silly talk. This is Merica!

    Have a chill pill. I know it’s tough rooting for the other side and losing. I lived it too. Trust me. I’m a true blue conservative, which through the years the meaning has been distorted. That’s why I’m registered an Independent, but will always lean for the far right. Trump’s not that person. I left the top of the ballot blank for that reason. I want THE WALL…but don’t really think he’ll build it. I want the wall for numerous reasons none of which has anything to do with race. If someone like me wants the wall done more than pretty much anything in this country & does not vote for Trump and tells you to take a chill over this guy, it’s good advice.

    Trump is going to BE a jobs president like no other that’s what I believe. Other than that, I don’t see major changes in the country. If you like having a job and actually working for a living (not protesting)then he’s your guy. Go to college, get a degree and actually unlike Obama, FIND a job when you get that degree. Not move back in with your mom and dad.

    Peeps need to chill.

    He vanquished many heavyweights in the GOP. Some of the most skilled attacks ads were thrown at Trump pretty much labeling him as everything in the book. They aired all over the country sometimes 50 times a day in some states. Left wing media trashed him at every turn. Yet he disposed of The Clinton Machine and won the presidency. He won. Obama won and I was pissed for a week. Did I take to the streets? Did I protest? Did I cry like many of these celebrities are doing out there? NO.

    Sorry guys but my comment got knocked out because I spelled duoche correctly.

  92. Buc1987 Says:

    The end.

    Good night, Go Evans, Go America, and Go Bucs!

  93. SB with Jameis Says:

    I didn’t vote because one candidate wore a duoche and the other candidate Is a duoche. I couldn’t live with supporting either one. As a “German Irish” american who fought for this country and voted for Obama, I think that is saying something.

  94. SB with Jameis Says:

    Gnight 87. All will be good my friend

  95. Buc1987 Says:

    SB with Jameis …very proud of you for not voting. I was going to do the same but realized the state wide shyte mattered to me. So I did vote like I said.

    I should have just clicked off. You need to bundle up cowboy it’s getting cold up in them there mountains.

    Okay goodnight.

  101. LakeLandBuc Says:

    Who fear a COWARD like Donald Trump? I’m only stating facts. I have no problem with the outcome of the election. Everything that I have posted here is the truth, but people have a problem accepting the truth. The results of this election will not affect me. I’m going to get mine’s regardless, no man will ever dictate my life. I’m not a sheep, waiting to be prodded by his Shepherd. I’m a Lion in this Asphalt Jungle,I have no place for Weaklings.

    Chan…are you worried about being stopped and frisked cause you’re black?

    No, because I don’t live in a Stop and Frisk city(yet). I’m worried that a Pres-Elect Champions racists policies that have already been stricken down as Unconstitutional by the Courts of our nation. And, it is even more worrying that people tell people like me to not believe their lying eyes when it’s pretty clear Trump is not a friend of minorities. Period, point blank. That said, I STILL WISH HIM ALL THE BEST, because if Trump succeeds WE ALL succeed.

    Fair enough 13. Apology accepted. Now leave politics at home and start balling. See you in Kansas City…..
