The people and entities listed below are not satisfied with expressing their own opinion.  They have called for a boycott of the NRA in general and also threatened other entities if they won’t agree to boycott also.  Twitter hashtag for the boycott is #BoycottNRA

They have a right to their opinion.  I have a right to decide I don’t want to fund their anti-American political agenda.

They don’t want a public debate.  They are calling for the NRA to be silenced.  Multiple calls for Amazon, Google Play, Roku, etc. to remove NRATV from their platforms.

Chicago Boyz blogged about boycotting the boycotters on February 23.

It’s odd that so many climate alarmists shut down discussion unless their opinions are accepted without reservation.  Paul Driessen writes about it.

Question or challenge climate crisis orthodoxy, however, and you will be vilified and face RICO prosecutions, bogus slander and SLAPP lawsuitscensure or expulsion from your university, attacks for sponsoring museum exhibits, or even “four hots and a cot” in a jail or a faraway gulag.

We need more discussion so folks on all sides of issues can have their ideas heard.

Bill Belichick Was Right In l’Affaire Butler

Multiple reports are appearing that Butler was not on the team plane from New England to the Super Bowl in Minneapolis because of an illness.  Showing up a day late also meant he missed a day of practice.  Then he also had a “rough” week of practice once he did get on the field and was late for several meetings.  And he apparently missed curfew at least once, and had a meltdown with a member of the coaching staff.



According to the Providence Journal:

Butler stayed back in Massachusetts when the team arrived earlier this week. After having flu-like symptoms, he visited a local area hospital multiple times before getting clearance to join his teammates out north.



All of this resulted in Coach Bill Belichick deciding to sit him for the biggest game of the year.  Was BB correct in sticking by the team rules?  By all accounts he has very few team rules:

  1. Be where you are when you are supposed to be there
  2. Pay attention
  3. Put the team first

Butler broke all of these rules.

If he was sick and showed up a day late in Minnesota how was he able to be out at night?  Shouldn’t he have been resting?  As a professional athlete he makes a lot of money and has a lot of off season time.  He can go out when he wants during the off season.  But the Super bowl is a business trip.  Deciding to party rather than rest was putting himself above the team.

Why dress him if he wasn’t going to play? With multiple injuries and a shortage of bodies he was an emergency only player.  If Rowe or Bademosi got knocked out of the game Butler probably would have played more.

I can’t remember if it was Rowe, Harmon or Bademosi who commented after the game that they had gotten more reps in practice along side Gilmore.  But there was an answer from one of them talking about this.  So it wasn’t a complete surprise that Butler’s playing time would be limited.

Belichick is looking at the long view.  The reason they win so much and get to the Super Bowl is because they have discipline.  The players buy-in or they are gone.  Breaking the few rules they have results in consequences.  Belichick is willing to stand by the rules even in the biggest game of the year.

He has consistently leaned on his “dependable” players.  Not necessarily superstars but guys who will be there.  It doesn’t mean they will be perfect but often others will support them and together the team will prevail.  This is how Butler got into the SB v Seattle and made the game winning interception.  He had proved to the coaches through practice time that he could be depended on.

Imagine if that game had turned out different, that the Seahhawks had handed off to Lynch and ultimately won the game.  Many would have likely questioned why Butler was in the game.

Belichick’s view of the big picture, along with his attention to details, almost always pays off.  He knows it will pay dividends in the long run.  If he gave in he would eventually have no rules and chaos would reign (See Steelers).  In the end this was not about Belichick’s ego or pride.  It was about a team concept of supporting each other and enforcing the rules.

The fact that Belichick was willing to stand by the team rules in the biggest game of the year only proves to strengthen his credibility.
