You're right to say it. It shouldn't take an act of bravery for you to

write what I'm sure most fans absolutely believe but are too gun-shy to say for fear of being blasted on this board. We're all UVA fans & no one should be pummeled for expressing their sincere opinion, especially one like yours which has so much to commend it. I've already said it, that despite my close to 40 years of intensely loyal support for UVA sports, I would walk away if the school allowed political statements to be displayed on jerseys or painted on the basketball court or pitchers mounds or in any way let the athletic department become part of a political movement. All players should be encouraged to speak out & say whatever they want when they're out of uniform----they should march, shout through bullhorns & take a knee to their heart's content. But not in uniform at ball games. I do think that that could kill college sports way more than a virus ever will. That's only one person's opinion here.
