I'm a little annoyed because I've had three cable customers in the last two days that I'm aware of contact us to have either NFL removed from their cable package and in one customer's case, all sports channels, because they're protesting against the protest.
The latter customer's husband served in the military and they felt it was disrespectful, which while I kind of get where they're coming from, I think they're also missing the point of why it's being done.
Not that it matters because we can't just strip away individual channels from their package anyway, so we end up not doing anything for them, and they walk away angry and with a grudge against us for "siding" with the protesters.
It's a very uncomfortable position to be in.
Me, personally? I feel like the teams have every right to protest how they want if it's not actively disturbing anyone as a result. Everything else is just noise.
I was thinking to myself "psh, y'all are being over dramatic about this 'Fade In/Fade Out' song; Nothing More is good and all, but they're not on the level of bands that make me cry or call my parents"
*starts crying harder than I have in years by the time of the first chorus*
*calls Dad at end of song with voice shaking to tell him I love him and appreciate everything he's done for me*
Super pumped for some new Red. These guys always rock it out and I agree with the OBAR comments (variation). I like that they announced it only a bit over a month from release to not feel like we're waiting forever.
