I'd largely agree with that. They think they are helping.... that they know best.

I drove through the parking lot of one, during the summer, on the way to another store. That's as close as I expect to ever get to shopping there, until the going out of business sale.

GOP = Dicks sporting goods

I don't know, you're a Republican that voted for Trump, aren't you?

I guess kudos to 'em :-)
Its one of the most ignorant things I've ever heard

Worst business model ever...

you mean the libs that never worked out or did any type of sport related activities in their lives didn't flock to the store to support Dicks for their virtue signaling? What a shame, probably hard to afford anything there on their barista wages.

When Dick's first came onto the scene in KC I stopped in to check it out and the hunting and fishing camping area that I had any interested in looked like a glorified Walmart with inflated prices. I lit outta there drove to Liberty Mo and went to my favorite place Rodgers Sporting Goods and havn't looked back.

Yea, it's right up there with trying to sell ice to Eskimo's.

Me and a buddy several years ago were drinking beer and shooting the shit about how to invent something and become rich. Different nonsense idea's were thrown around.

He suggested disposable pots (like cooking pots) made of cardboard. Use once, and you don't even need to throw away!! Saving the Earth and stuff.

If memory serves, my best idea was 55 gallon barrels of dehydrated water. During an emergency, you could have 55 gallon of water in an instant by just adding water!! It was BRILLIANT I say!! :-)

Another idea that came out of this brain session was that during NASCAR races, they should randomly release deer. Make racing more challenging. Anybody can draft at 190 MPH, BUT, can they do it with Bambi running around the track :-)

Humor aside, any of these ideas are as just about as good as kicking your target audience in the nuts and asking them to please come again :-)

I like the idea of Cops chasing racers around the track handing out speeding tickets or swatting them.

I haven't stepped foot in a Dicks for the last 15-18 years. Damned sure will never step foot in one, either.
