Arlington’s MLK parade canceled after funding pulled amid protest threat

After Gov. Greg Abbott was announced he would serve as honorary grand marshal, that's when the protests started.

Local NAACP officials say they support canceling the parade because Abbott’s participation would have forced them to protest an event meant to honor King.

14 turnovers by guys that are no longer here. Is this a correct stat ? The defense didn’t lose but a couple guys.

Love what he said about the helmet and understanding what it means. It’s time for people to not look forward to playing us. Kyle Field needs to get back to being a tough place to play, it hasn’t been for some time now.

Guns Up!🤠

Can't see spending the money to watch another losing season

We’ll be there! Guns Up!

We support them no matter what the outcome... A true Red Raider fan.

We have our season tickets, but, if we have a losing season, I’m not sure we’ll be able to justify them again, next year, and then we’ll return to just buying individual tickets to attend select games.

We will be there! Season ticket holders for 25 years. Wouldn’t miss it! Love my Red Raiders!
