I am so glad to see stuff like this happening.

I am hoping to go and do some business with Dick’s. They deserve it.

Keep it up … BOTH Dick’s and US, the public.

I am glad that the market rewarded them for their bold move. That is good and shows that there are a lot of people, like I, who applaud their courage and civic duty.

But, we all know that there will be a backlash. I have already seen people reacting very negatively. Yes, there will be boycotts. I hope that there are no demonstrations or pickets. I would hate to see any employees getting harrassed.

Interesting times. I haven’t checked what the reaction has been to Walmart deciding to follow in Dick’s footsteps.

This is frigging disturbing and creepy. What is wrong with these people.

This comes across as another Moonie cult. Some of these people. Talk about penile envy.

I just don’t know. I despair.

This on the same day that “Dick’s Sporting Goods” showed that you always have the option of doing the right thing.

Just wanted to make sure that YOU saw this in case, unlike I, you do NOT read the U.K. “Daily Mail” (online) a FEW times a day.

I APPLAUD “Dick’s Sporting Goods” For Their Courageous BUT Right Decision. Way To Go! Lead The Way.

I am SO happy that “Dick’s Sporting Goods” took these courageous stand. Way to go.

Yes, it will lose them some customers BUT it has earned them a boat load of goodwill and publicity beyond what a 3-minute slot on the Super Bowl could have got them. It is so good to see U.S. companies doing the RIGHT THING. Bravo. Kudos.

I have a “Dick’s Sporting Goods” reward card though I haven’t shopped there in a while — mainly because I don’t buy that many sporting goods anymore. The basic stuff I need, like cheap running shoes, I pick up at Walmart. But, NOW I am going to make an effort to shop there! So, see it PAYS.

During the Summers of 2010 & 2011 we frequented them often. We needed a kayak and ended up getting a kayak and a Standup Paddle Board — then going back for a second Paddle Board. They were excellent to deal with. They always made the experience rewarding. Very helpful. Very nice. So, I am very happy about this.

Bravo. Way to go.
