Kiz, thank you for having the courage to call the NFL, the White House bully and the bickering property of Broncos. I appreciate the fairness and fairness of Broncos safety Kareem Jackson, which faces discrimination when not on the field, regardless of his contract. As a somewhat casual reader of your column, I was surprised that you spoke for me and transcended the ordinary sports world.

Kiz: This is an opportunity for America to make a meaningful change. Kudos to John Elway for showing the courage to decide that he cannot be sidelined in the fight against racism and police brutality after making this sincere confession on Twitter: “I always thought that since “Growing up in a locker room, I knew everything there was to know about understanding teammates with different backgrounds and walks of life. I couldn’t have been more wrong.”
It would be a tragedy if fans can’t see Major League baseball this year. It would clearly send a message that neither franchisees nor players attach any value to the fan base. Both parties take fans for granted.
– B.O.3, says: play ball!
Kiz: Crazy optimists that we are here at Kickin ‘It Headquarters, I choose to believe that there will be baseball in 2020 because players and franchise owners cannot possibly be so greedy, stupid and shortsighted not to reach a financial deal to play . Can they?
I disagree with the politics on the sports pages. By the time I get to Denver Post every morning, I’ve already been on the Internet and read dozens of stories about politics. It’s time for a pleasant reprieve. We all need a break from elections, the coronavirus and other evils of the world. Come on, Kiz. Don’t take that from us.
– Tom, colors within the lines
Kiz: If Nuggets guard Jamal Murray has major social issues in his head after the last buzzer, can he raise his voice? By the way, as I warned you almost three months ago, it is more difficult to engage in sports if you don’t exercise.
But sports and my haircut are probably the most important things in the world right now.
– Nate, everything in perspective
Kiz: Hello sir. I’m doing the sarcasm here, and it hurts my feelings if you do better than me.
Liberal idiots like you really want to make me puke. You are not an American, you are a frightening fool from the left. Why are they “African” Americans? What about only black Americans or Americans? What does Africa have to do with it other than the bad behavior they have shown forever in America?
– Terry, Denver
Kiz: So it is reasonable to assume that you are standing in front of the ‘Star-Spangled Banner’, but you only sing ‘Kumbaya’ with Americans you consider appropriate?
And saying goodbye today is a much appreciated word of thanks, and as a reminder the two most effective words in coaching are: well done.
Kiz, you may not want to play the part of the conscience of top-class sports in Denver, but you’re the most articulate. Please stay.
– Bob, Boulder
