    I guess if you bank your life on peaking with high school sports, gotta make your stand somewhere.

    Weird, this thread is about college athletics.

    Does college have a four year degree in becoming a lifeguard?

    What’s that mean? You were talking about high school athletics. This thread is about college athletics.

    As per usual, your made back to back posts that make no sense.

    OK, I'm not the only one that couldn't figure it out. Thought I might have missed a post.

    I'm saying it's sports. Maybe they should focus on getting a career that makes a living. Being fit is great and all, but being a professional swimmer doesn't exactly pay as well as other sports (where most people fail to become a pro either).

    Again, no idea what you’re talking about. Who said these people aren’t pursuing jobs because they’re pissed that some dude who declares himself a woman beats them in a race while they’re in college?

    Anyone catching this truly pathetic little controversy with Dawn Staley.

    Every b-list celebrity and failed right-leaning “journalist” trying really hard to make it a thing lol. The best was some broad I never heard of on Fox saying Dawn Staley is a part of some cult.

    Which is ironic considering there’s a cult of hatred trying to make this a thing when it really isn’t

    My understanding was she was asked if she supported transwomen playing women's sports, she didn't offer her opinion. She was pressed, so she pressed back. She didn't initiate an agenda.

    I don't agree with her stance at all, but she is an amazing basketball coach and those GIRLS deserved to win. Social media et al tried to ice the kicker, and it didn't work. 38-0, unlike the Cheats. That's impressive no matter how you slice it.

    Just to reclarify something in particular for perhaps the third time since this thread started. I do not agree with biological males participating in biological female sports. What I don't appreciate is the inference that you're some kind of a transphobic bigot just because you don't toe the company line on it every which way but loose.

    It has nothing to do with discrimination or hatred of any kind, and I am so sick of that implication. Getting lumped in with a faction of wacko religionists in politics who attach all the other shit to it that I DON'T agree with is an annoying and unwelcome facet of having a factual scientific basis to my opinion on the matter.

    I will always stand up for what's right when it comes to bullying, discrimination, fear mongering and hatred. Biological males have a physical advantage in women's sports. That does not qualify, sorry not sorry.

    What’s the problem? It’s not like Staley’s been quiet about her feelings on polarizing issues in the past or politics.

    She was asked something that’s very relevant in women’s athletics today which is related to men participating in women’s sports.

    That's my point, there is no problem. She was asked a question and gave her opinion . I'm not sure why "Outkick the Coverage" and "Fox & Friends" has been parading people up all week to cry about it. Let alone a US Senator from Alabama

    Well they obviously have a different opinion. You can use hyperbole and call it crying all you want but that’s what political talk shows do - they talk about political issues.

    They should stick to that (silly politics) and stay out of sports talk then IMO.
