NHL Anthem Watch: Everyone Stands
So far through exhibitions, it appears everyone is standing.

Some liberals on twitter are having massive meltdowns over it.

Real games start tomorrow, so we'll see how this develops.

yessssss

Hockey's considered a white supremacist sport, so agreed, will be interesting to see how it develops.

RE: NHL Anthem Watch: Everyone Stands
What's going on right now is a social experiment by pro sports leagues. The NBA is going full Woke because they think half the people that spend money on their product are all for BLM and the other half will tolerate anything to just have a sport to watch.

NFL and MLB are somewhat more tepidly following the same path to keep the radical progressive left (who mostly aren't sports fans to begin with) from "protesting" outside games, but they are curious to see if their slightly more conservative fan base will tolerate the BS or stop paying for the **** show. They are currently betting on the former.

NHL on the other hand is mostly a northern sport in the US that appeals to mostly people from that region. They know that at least 90% of their fan base is white and blue collar. They'll hold off for now to see what happens with MLB and NFL before committing to social justice.

Funny, most NHL games I watch, the ads are for a more affluent viewer. They're not as high-end as tennis, but they're definitely nicer products than you'll see pitched in the other three major sports. Hockey's more white collar now. It broke from being blue collar in the 2000s.

The games I watched had some pandering in them. Not as much as the NBA, but it was still there. Canadians and affluent northeasterners are pretty liberal, after all.
