Listen to what? Respond how? What's the clear message and demand? Kane said human rights more important than sports. A milquetoast statement unobjectionable on its own yet vapid in terms of diagnosing a problem or setting forth a course of action. So how to you "listen" to virtue signaling?

Again, at least the players aren't burning down the bubble....

That's pretty cynical there UW, to think that he took a knee figuring he would get a payday out of it.
I didn't say he kneeled figuring to get a payday. I said kneeling led to a payday that he wouldn't have otherwise received. I don't think he imagined that it would receive so much attention.
Ah okay, I read you wrong then.

Not a fan of postponement. I was hoping the NBA stupidity won't spread to NHL, alas we're not so lucky.

I don't want politics in my sports. These players (NBA, NHL, NFL, MLB, all of them) pulling stunts like this won't help solve the supposed issues they highlighted. It's all just cheap virtue signalling. What annoys me even more are the sports journalists writing all the crap about the NHL missing the boat on making a difference and being on the wrong side of history. No you morons, you're commenting on a highly politicized issues that no one has all the facts to yet. You're not trained for political commentary, so stick to what you know, sports (though I doubt a number of them are even competent enough for THAT).

You can connect any message to any not-naturally-connected act and have it mean something. So what? You could also just say what you mean.

Moreover, there a LOT of things that take priority over sports, but we don't stop participating in those lower value things, do we? My children take priority over sport, doesn't mean I don't tell them to stop bugging me while I'm watching the Canucks.

And what's Kane say about the NBA's relationship with China and what that says about the priorities of sport v. human rights....

Yup, Evander Kane is a moron.

Lol @ Kane up on his pulpit preaching about morality and "human rights".

This is you Evander, own it and shut the fuck up:
