NBC Says Anthem Protesters Will Get Camera Time at the Super Bowl

Proving that network television executives have learned absolutely nothing from the NFL ratings decline of this season, NBC Sports EP Fred Gaudelli confirmed that they would keep their cameras focused on the protesting players during the Super Bowl. At a Television Critics Association event on Tuesday, Gaudelli said that it was a matter of basic sports coverage.

“When you are covering a live event, you are covering what’s happening,” he said. “If there are players who choose to kneel, they will be shown live.”

Pop star Pink will be performing the Star-Spangled Banner at the big game, and more than a hundred million viewers are expected to tune in and see the biggest annual night in all of sports, broadcasting live from Minneapolis. While the Super Bowl is usually free from any serious controversies, this year may hearken back to the halftime show two years ago, when Beyoncé took the field for what many viewers saw as a political performance meant to demean American police officers. This year, with so many eyes watching, the NFL could watch a handful of players put one final black mark on a once-untouchable brand name.

The NFL has gone to great lengths to downplay their ratings decline and/or blame it on anything and everything other than the anthem controversy. Despite having ample opportunity and leverage to force the players to stop disrespecting the flag, league management sat idly by in the name of some misguided concept of free speech. Meanwhile, not only are the ratings for the season a bad omen for things to come but a new survey proves that the flag protests are one of the biggest reasons for the deteriorating numbers.

In a survey that asked NFL fans if they “purposely” stopped watching NFL games over the past season, SurveyMonkey found that 33% of football fans said yes. A plurality of those boycotting the league said they did so “in support of Donald Trump.” What’s interesting, though, is that many fans stopped watching in “solidarity” with the kneeling players and/or Colin Kaepernick. So this survey shows that the NFL is getting it from all sides. The league isn’t just losing viewers who are disgusted with the protests but also viewers who BELIEVE in the protests! Talk about a bad situation.

The Super Bowl would have been the league’s perfect opportunity to take control of said situation and prove to millions of on-the-fence fans that this kind of unpatriotic nonsense is coming to an end. Instead, they appear poised to give these protesters the biggest spotlight of their careers…and possibly bring to an end any chance they ever had of winning back a dwindling audience.

  • Peter Smith

    Haven’t watched an NFL game all year, I won’t start now. I also do not watch NBC, I won’t miss a thing. How many TV’s will switch off the moment a player kneels……? ALL of them I hope and pray ……
    RIP NFL, LOL at the over-priced, under educated losers.

    • Bogart1950

      I won`t see them Kneel, Cause I will not be WATCHING THE SUPERBOWL..2nd year in a row.. This Vet says you better wise up NFL.. The Vets will start to protest your games next year by standing out front of your gates on game day.. Holding signs, ” NFL Disrepects VETS” see how that works..

      • Peter Smith

        I’m not a Vet, but I respect all those who are. I’ll stand with you because these idiots disrespect us all. Stand for the Flag, kneel for the Cross!

        • Geri Levine

          And many Vets are proud of those who take a knee!

          • Robert Baird

            How many would that be, GL? 2 or 3?

          • Peter Smith

            None that I know, and I know many. I think you’re trying to convince yourself of your own “fake news”. Nice try but I know you’re lying ……

          • JSIVO

            I LOST A BROTHER WHEN HE WAS ONLY 21 AND MANY POOR WHITE AND BLACK BOYS DIED TOO………..I GUESS THE FLAG THAT DRAPED THEIR COFFIN DIDN’T MATTER TO YOU OR ANY RICH PLAYER

          • Peter Smith

            ???????? JSIVO, not sure of your intent and you damn sure know nothing about of me. I am sorry to hear about your brother. But for you to say that I don’t think it matters? To catagorize me with the disrespectful morons of the NFL? Brother, you’d better check your circuits because you’re F-ed up and dead ass wrong. Or are you just too stupid to understand my response to “Geri Levine”?

          • JSIVO

            IF I DID I THOUGHT I WAS WAS RESPONDING TO GERI LEVINE… PLEASE ACCEPT MY SINCERE APOLOGY…I KNOW YOU ARE ALWAYS RIGHT ON

          • Peter Smith

            I was hoping it was just a mistake. I support all US military, current and retired. They DESERVE our respect and our thanks. MAGA! “Stand for the Flag and kneel for the Cross.”

          • markypolo

            Geri levine: Stop smoking pot, and try getting a JOB. Lazy ass pile of fecal. You have no idea what you are talking about.

          • Ntimeman

            Oh, thats right, you must mean the trannies.

          • Dave McFarland

            Geri, those who support the obvious and premeditated attack of our veterans and all decent people in this country deserve to be shunned. If you support these bastards, then you must not support the United States. Supporting direct disrespect of our country in tantamount to treason.

          • phil62

            Do WHAT? How damned stupid are you? NO veteran is proud of these assholes

          • Bogart1950

            Some one said we we`re Proud? yup ass holes..

          • Todd Nelson

            I can only speak for myself, but I have seen too many flags draped over my buddies caskets to not despise those who would disrespect that same flag. GL you are going to need to find those 3 or 4 vets who are stupid enough to believe you, the rest of us say you are full of excrement.

            i

          • Ron Dapo

            You shouldn’t lie, or are you talking about animal doctors?

          • The Hawk

            Bullsh_t!

          • turkeychoker

            Indeed ? I`d cause them to loose their balance while on their knee. Stupid Communists.

          • Mic

            Are the VET’s you refer to from U.S. armed service or from other countries? Or are te animal doctors.

        • Jesusprotectus

          Amen

        • JGS

          Best said. Stand for the Flag and kneel for the Cross. Had to repeat that. Great line!
          I won’t see them either since I won’t be watching. I will not start watching again until the NFL publicly denounces these traitors and shuts it down. The NFL has no business in politics or else I have no business with them.
          I’m sticking to my boycott until they publicly change their ways. We cannot let these fools off the hook so easy. This nonsense has been made formally public so the NFL needs to grow a pair and make formal public changes to end this BS. Until then, they are off and their advertisers don’t get my support.

          • Peter Smith

            Yes! It’s time for the NFL to be on knees begging “We the People” to come back.

          • william couch

            I sold my season tickets (box seats) last sept a year ago to the first person to showup to purchase them.. Come to find out he was an undercover agent looking for scalpers.. I ask for what I spent for them.. Here in the phoenix area,, they get free tickets to all game played @ the stadium.. He got an upgrade. And on TV I turn the channel

          • Dee

            Totally agree with you ! Haven’t missed the games one bit .. I continue to get others to Join the Boycott !

        • Tony Winters

          Patriotism and Religion in the same reply, you are not going to be on the Left’s Christmas card, sorry I mean Holiday card list this year.

          • Peter Smith

            LOL! That’s okay with me, I receive plenty of Christmas cards from others …… 😊

      • Jeannie

        That is a wonderful idea…Get the Harley riders there to help, protect, and defend you

        • taliesin319

          That works every time.

          • lrr1

            I believe you are right. If they find out the harley’s are going to be there, they will be putting the cameras on them, and they will be respectful. The kneelers will not be shown. Well, NBC may show them. I won’t be watching anyway.

          • SNUFFER

            I HAVE WATCHED NBC – SINCE I WAS A BOY- WHEN IT FIRST CAME ON IN SAN ANTONIO TEXAS UNDER THE NAME OF WOAI-4 IN 1953- IT CAME ON IN THE EVENING AT ABOUT 6PM AND WAS OFF BY 10PM. BUT WE WERE ALL AROUND THE TINY TUBE IN THE BIG CABINET AND IT WAS IN BLACK AND WHITE. HAD TO CONSTANTLY KEEP MOVING THE RABBIT EARS SO THE PICTURE WOULD CLEAR UP. THEN WE PUT UP AN ANTENNA ON THE HOUSE AND BINGO IT WAS CLEAR AND IT ALSO ADDED 2 MORE CHANNELS. THEN THE REST IS HISTORY! ANY STATION THAT DOES NOT RESPECT OUR SERVICEMEN AND WOMEN AND THE FLAG HAS LOST MY FAMILY FOR GOOD. SO, FOX IS PRETTY MUCH FOR US WHAT IS LEFT OF THE PATRIOTIC STATIONS THAT HAS THE GOOD PEOPLE INTEREST AT HEART.

        • Bogart1950

          Well, Guys, I AM A Biker.. Been one since the 70`s and yup, I`ll have friend there with me ..opening game next year either AZ or Denver.. not sure which one yet! But holding a sign I will be..

          • phil62

            TY Boggie, I wish I could be there with you.

      • Alan404

        The results of such a display, if it actually happens could be most interesting to view.

        • SNUFFER

          THEN EVERYONE WILL KNOW WHO THE REAL ASSHOLES ARE AND SHOULD BOYCOTT THEIR TEAM AND THEIR BS THEY HAWK. AND THE CHANNEL THAT SHOWS THIS DISRESPECT FOR AMERICA.

        • Bogart1950

          I Live in AZ and I think that is what I will do on Opening day next September ..protest NFL

        • Bogart1950

          Did what “actually” happens? You would watch with interest? what is it that you wanted to see.. Me getting hit by tomato or me not responding with by beating some kids asses? I did what I thought was right at the time.. Walked away, YES, with all the shit on me.. Interesting Huh? want the DATE Jerk? Jan 21 1971. Seattle airport, I remember that morning like it was yesterday… Something tells me, you would have been one that laughs at that.. Or Stare at me on the Plane .. But you would not have thrown anything… That would have taken a MAN with Balls… and I don`t believe you own a pair.. Kiss your Mommy for me.. GOD BLESS THE USA

          • Alan404

            Your childish insults or attempts only reduce you, if reduction is possible. That said, why don’t you try reading, that is reading the comment that I replied to. Note, I made reference to replying to another’s comment, a far different thing than the temper tantrum you displayed. By the way, the post I responded to appeared to be from a military service veteran, who as I recall went on to call for a counter display by other veterans. I suggest that you read BEFORE running your foul mouth, like the proverbial motorboat.

          • Bogart1950

            And you sir: Never we`re ever near a war zone, so don`t tell me a word.. you didn`t like my happening on that day? Good, You Have NEVER had that happen to you .. I`m sure of that.. But if ever does , Please feel free to write about it so I can call you out on it.. Then again, you would have had to be a GI and some how snowflake, I don`t see you as more than a 7-11 clerk..Have a great day.. Oh and if you think that I believe that you we`re addressing another person? yet my name is on the heading? And insulting you would take no efford, what so ever, on my part.. Any Vet can see though you and your lack of Service to our country.. If your going to LIE.. Need to get better at it.. Snowflake wimp..

          • Alan404

            Probably a waste of time, however what I referenced was the veterans counter demonstration that was mentioned in one post. Does that get through? Additionally, regarding your endless inferences to your military service, EXACT DETAILS PLEASE, or would you prefer to rave and rant.

      • Diane Edenfield Luke

        Great! I support our veterans 100%!!

        • Geri Levine

          And many support taking a knee. That’s what they fought for. Our Constitution and Liberty and justice for ALL.

          • Robert Baird

            You’re so full of sh**, GL….You would make a Christmas turkey look like skin and bones! You sure throw that word ‘many’ around alot……kind of like Clinton trying to find out what the meaning of ‘is’ is! I know a LOT of Vets and I am one, but not a single one of those I know support this disrespectful crap. If you think the Constitution supports this garbage you need to put in some serious study time on that sacred document because you’ve got it all wrong!!!

          • READY2SCRAP

            This guy is a leftist troll
            seen him on other sites, GL. loves to take a knee as well, a wee-knee that is..

          • Robert Baird

            That’s how I would have pegged him too, ‘Ready’………..No doubt in my mind you’re right about him taking a ‘wee-knee! I would bet the clown is a musician……probably plays 1st chair meat whistle with some gay caballero band.

          • READY2SCRAP

            OLE!

          • Geri Levine

            Thank you for your service. Seriously.

          • phil62

            FU DUDE We don’t want your lying ass thanks!

          • Bogart1950

            Not really dear.. I know they have their right too do what they want too. But Most Vets love our flag, And Taking a knee while the Anthem is playing is NOT only disrespecting Flag, But the men who died to keep it free.. I`m a Vietnam Vet, and was treated very bad in 1971, upon my return home.. and I was not the only one, we all we`re treated like Dogs, from Americans. This is why we, VETS, will not allow these kids to be disrespected now.. And KNEE taken is just that.. DISREPECTING ! GOD BLESS THE USA..

          • Geri Levine

            Thank you for your service. I had many friends come back and some came back not like they left. How you were received when you came home was atrocious. If times were different, I think you would have been treated with much more respect and embraced as the heros you are. Our flag is something many died for, lost limb and mind for. But what it IS is the symbol of what America embraces. Freedom! For all! And when one of us is treated differently, with a different set of rules, then the flag, the Constitution is disrespected. Wether you stand or kneel is a choice. One that each and every one of us is entitled to make. It’s just a different way of saying the same thing. Again, thank you for putting yourself in harms way so that we weren’t.

          • phil62

            Not only are you an asshole but you are STUPID along with it.

          • Geri Levine

            With Liberty and justice for ALL! ALL! ALL!

          • phil62

            “LIBERTY AND JUSTICE FOR ALL” does not say a damn thing about racism – nothing. Damn you are stupid.

          • JSIVO

            ASK LIBTARDS TO READ SOME FACTS….DEMOCRATS KKK, WANTED SLAVERY, NOW THEY NEED POOR PEOPLE’S VOTES. WHY ARE ALL THE WELFARE STATES IN THE HOLE

          • dorcus

            Are you that uninformed? IF you are a TRUE AMERICAN, then YOU DO NOT DISRESPECT THE FLAG ANTHEM, OR CONSTITUTION! I don’t care what your cause is! And, your “it’s just a different way of saying the same thing”, NO, it certainly is NOT the same thing. Kneeling is disrespecting those things held in honor of our veterans. It isn’t about what the kneelers or you want! Why is it this generation think the world is all about themselves! It’s time for you to grow up! For over two hundred years the United States got along just fine without all of this me, me, me, generation!

          • Richard

            AMEN!!!

          • JSIVO

            ILLEGALS ARE TREATED BETTER THAN OUR MILITARY. WITH OBUMA…..NOT ANYMORE THANKS TO TRUMP

          • Dave McFarland

            Geri, apparently, you do not know why they are kneeling. They believe The United States is a bigoted, racist, and anti-world country. It is you who have no respect for me, my friends, Christians, blacks, whites, etc. You are one selfish piece of manure.

          • JSIVO

            THEN GO PLAY IN THE CANADIAN FOOTBALL LEAQUE

          • READY2SCRAP

            listen here Peter pan
            Majority rules in America…
            Go to another country, a place where you people can ride your little rainbow ponies and unicorns
            in socialist style, it’s not going to happen here buddy, you people are way overly domestacated, mentally declawed, balless overly Homogenized and pathetic, get off the site, you are a disgrace to real men who know how to provide protect and live in peace…

          • phil62

            I am a 23 year veteran of 2 wars. I speak for ALL Veterans: Levine STFU you POS. If you are so certain of that then why don’t you give me your name and address so we can talk it over face-to-face you puke.

          • Geri Levine

            No, you don’t speak for ALL veterans.

          • JSIVO

            YES HE DOES……99.9%

          • Bogart1950

            I`m thinking he does!..

          • phil62

            Yes puke, I speak for all Veteran’s as a whole. You don’t even know what it means to be a veteran you cowardly puke. Why don’t you take me up on my offer? To much old fashioned chicken shit running in your families blood line?

          • Cheryl Detar

            I keep a copy of the Constitution on my desk, just for comments, like yours. There is NOTHING in there that says to disrespecting our flag, military and law enforcement is acceptable.

          • Geri Levine

            And there is NOTHING that says you MUST see and. Only the military must stand.

          • JSIVO

            DO IT AT ANOTHER WORKPLACE DURING WORKING HOURS AND YOU WOULD BE FIRED…..TELL ME WHY THAT’S NEVER HAPPENING IN AMERICA???????????? WELL IN MOST WELFARE HOODS THEY DON’T BELIEVE IN WORK LOL. REMEMBER THE DAY WOMEN WERE GOING TO STOP WORKING FOR ONE DAY….LOL LOL LOOK HOW MANY SAID NOOOOOO CAN’T DO THAT I’LL BE FIRED

          • turkeychoker

            doom on you……………google it

      • Robert Baird

        This Vet stands with you Bogart…..I haven’t watched a game this season and the super bowl will not be an exception. I do not and will not watch the NFL ever again!!

        • Shirley H. Greer

          The halftime shows are so vulgar and hysterical that young athletes will think that these actions are normal. Leftist agitators lie to fool young Americans. NBC is just doing what they do every day with their toxic agenda. This is just their anti-American nonsense!! We must see that they don’t succeed.

          • Robert Baird

            Amen to that one, Shirley

          • Dave McFarland

            It appears to the progressive liberal Marxist hypocrite democrats that they only way they will be happy is to see President Trump and the United States fail. The next time a liberal opens up his or her mouth, I will demonstrate just how real patriots act. It won’t be pretty.

      • Charles Doss

        Same here. I have been (notice past tense) a huge fan of “America’s Team” since about 1962, but I have not watched a game this season. NOT A ONE. I even change channels when the sports reporters start to talk about EnEfEl games. I am not a vet, but ever since the bridge at Concord, our fighting men (and these days women) have made unbelievable sacrifices for our one of a kind country, and to show any sign of disrespect for our anthem, Flag, or the vets who served under that banner, is an absolute disgrace. And now the EnEfEl says they will give something like $100M to so called charities that help black causes. Boy, talk about a shakedown!! La Cosa Nostra could maybe learn how to get rich(er) from the kneelers. But, this could be their last Hurrah. No tears here, if it is.

      • RC

        My sentiments exactly. I haven’t watched an NFL game this year and have no intention of watching a bunch of anti-American trash show their “respect” by not honoring our country by standing like men for the National Anthem instead of carrying on like a bunch of petulant little boys.

      • JSIVO

        GO FOR IT ILL BE IN NEW ENGLAND STANDING WITH YOU

    • Jeannie

      LOL I won’t, because the game will not be on mine

      • Peter Smith

        The TV audience market share for this years play-offs and Super Bowl may just set records. The lowest in the history of the NFL that is. I’ll be laughing while I watch something else, anything else really. But no liberal MSM is ever allowed in my home.

        • SNUFFER

          THATS A WORTHLESS BUNCH OF SCUMBAGS ON THAT CHANNEL.

      • Bogart1950

        LOL, Your right, won`t see it cause I will be watching movies..

    • lrr1

      I’m with you Peter. I have not watched all year and really have not missed it. I will not watch the super bowl as well.

    • 28H2O48

      I wont see the game this year also, if there is a pooll about this issue, you can add mine now.

    • patriotds1

      Could not agree more or have said it better.

    • Cheryl Detar

      There is hope. Vince McMahon (of WWE) just sold 100 million of his stock, intending to start up a new league.

      • Peter Smith

        To be honest Cheryl, I’m very content watching High School and College football. The NFL is done, stick a fork in it!
        How would a hybrid of professional wrestling and professional football look? It would be dull. That and the fact that $100 million would be chump change trying to start a new league, I have my doubts.

    • Krow361

      Only thing worth watching are the commercials.And even those are losing their luster.

      • Peter Smith

        The ads are aired because there is a large TV audience. These companies paid millions for a 30 second slot. The anthem protests caused “We the People” to change the channel or turn the TV off. Corporate America won’t pay millions to a network nobody is watching …… without this added revenue, the NFL will fade out and die. Good riddance……

    • Widget

      I agree with Peter Smith. I’ve decided to go out for dinner and a movie. This will be the first ever Superbowl that I’ve missed since they begin playing the Superbowl!! I will not compromise my patriotism!!

    • Mic

      I might turn to NBC just to see if the players are still so stupid tp try to continue killing the pro sport. If any of tem knell at the start I will continue to watch to see if the coach benches them. If he plays them, I change channels!

      • Peter Smith

        You’ll making a much larger attempt than I will. Working out of town, i’m Not even sure which channel is NBC. I don’t think I’ll even try to make that determination.

  • Redbonejohn1

    I suggest covering the football field with America’s finest, Combat veterans that can’t stand that are in wheelchairs. Maybe this will wake up those overpaid pricks that think that they are helping their stupid protest

  • Diana Hughes Clayton

    they are over paid jerks. Refuse to watch them.

    • lrr1

      A whole lot overpaid.

  • Jmanjo

    NBC is the problem. They instigate a lot of the news issues to screw up America. They should be fined or worse for their efforts to hurt our nation. Someone please wipe the smirk off Chuck Todd’s puss!

    • fidel

      Yea sounds good, need to post his address, work address and schedule, and all info related to this anti American pedo. He’s a c ck sucker.

    • Susan Short

      I wish that someone would bash Chucky’s ugly face in!

    • Arthur L. Overbey

      HIT THEN IN THEIR POCKET BOOK AS MONEY IS THE ONLY THING THEY UNDERSTAND.

  • Ken Mayton

    This is why they all can go to Hell with gasoline underwear ! RIP NFL… You all suck ass !

  • rivahmitch

    Mox Nix! No Americans will be watching their little charade anyway. Must be a good book to read or a movie to watch.

  • pappy450

    Nothing new, for the NBC, “nobody but clinton network”. Don’t watch it, never watched “sports” just a waste of time, and takes up channels on my TV I don’t need or watch, (but am FORCED to pay for in my “package”)

  • fidel

    Lets just say NBC and the NFL are trailer trash. Stupid unpatriotic assholes. Pat Tillman walked away from the game to protect are country and paid the ultimate price. His life. Yet these ghetto knee grows would hide in a closet verses pay respect to the flag and national anthem. # Las Vegas

    • Bogart1950

      With the lineman, from the Steelers, the only one on that team to stand (and caught hell from team mates, BUT, He is in reserves, MUST stand for flag) I bet their are no NFL players , who ever came close to combat, no less join up..

  • SFENGR

    As Forrest said, “Stupid is as stupid does,” what a bunch of NBC dumbarses! Any residual fan base that the NFL may have left will soon be gone, along with the networks that promote these protests!

    • SNUFFER

      I’M GLAD MY SON AND I SOLD ALL THAT BS WE HAD BOUGHT ON LINE- AFTER THE FIRST KNEEL – HE WAS ON THE PHONE CALLING ME AND ASKING DID YOU SEE THOSE SORRY BLM BASTARDS KNEELING DURING OUR COUNTRY’S ANTHEM- HE SAID HE WAS GOING TO TAKE ALL THE JERSEY AND BURN THEM IN THE FIRE PIT IN HIS BACK YARD. I TOLD HIM NOT TO DO THAT AND I’D PUT ALL THE SHIT ON EBAY AND SELL IT TO THE HIGHEST BIDDER. WE GOT RID OF THAT SHIT JERSEYS AND MADE 70 % OF OUR MONEY BACK AND THE DONATED IT TO A CHILDREN’S HOSPITAL FOR CHILDHOOD CANCER. WE KEPT ENOUGH FOR A STEAK AT OUTBACK STEAKHOUSE AND THEN WE WERE DONE WITH THE NNFL OR THE BNFL FOR LIFE. YOU SEE HE IS A M/SGT. IN THE MILITARY AND THAT JUST RUBBED HIS AND MY ASSES THE WRONG WAY. WE LEARNED A BIG LESSON WHEN IT COMES TO THE BLM ASSHOLES OF THE NNFL OR BNFL. I HAVE NO USE FOR THEM- AS FAR AS WE ARE CONCERNED THEY CAN ALL JUST HOPE RIGHT ON THE FIRST WHOLLY FREIGHTER AND HEAD BACK TO KENYA WITH GOOD OLE MONKEY EARS HIMSELF.THAT WAY WE CAN GET RID OF 2 BIG PILES OF SHIT IN ONE EASY WAY!! THEN MAYBE IT WILL SINK ABOUT HALF WAY THERE. PROBLEM SOLVED- ITS FEEDING TIME FOR THE GREAT WHITES.

      • Clair

          • SNUFFER

            SUE CAN YOU SHOW ME AN OFFICIAL DOCUMENT WHERE IT IS DEFINED IN A FORUMS RULES AND THAT YOU ARE NOT JUST PACKING TALES FROM SOME SQUIRREL THAT WANED TO BE A BIG SHIT ON HERE BY MAKING PEOPLE FOLLOW HIM . THIS IS A CHILDISH STATEMENT TO SAY THAT CAPS ARE SCREAMING. THAT STATEMENT IS PLUM SILLY TO SAY THE LEAST ABOUT CAPS. LET’S DO THIS- YOU TYPE THE WAY YOU WANT AND I WILL DO THE SAME. IF YOU DON’T LIKE THEM THEN DON’T GIVE MY POST A SECOND GLANCE. YOU ARE DOING NOTHING BUT MAKING THE IDIOT WHO STARTED THE SILLY IDEA IN THE FIRST PLACE THINK HE IS THE GURU OF THE INTERNET FORUMS.

          • SNUFFER

            IF I WANTED TO HAVE YOU TEACH ME SOMETHING I WOULD OF ASK FOR IT BEFORE YOU GAVE YOU VALUABLE ADVICE TO ME. SINCE IT NOT LEGALLY WRITTEN AND IS PART OF A DOCUMENT MAKING IT AN OFFENSE ON THIS FORUM – THEN IT DOES NOT EXIST. THIS IS JUST A FIGMENT OF YOU IMAGINATION – THAT YOU WANT TO ORDER FOLKS AROUND- DOES THIS MAKE YOU FEEL IMPORTANT LIKE THE FOOL THAT STARTED IT IN THE FIRST PLACE- HE/SHE WANTED TO SEE HOW MANY FOLLOWERS HE COULD GET BY MAKING HIS OWN SET OF SILLY RULES .

          • Sue

            guess I know who to blow by

          • SNUFFER

IF IT OK FOR THE US GOVERNMENT TO TEACH IN SENSITIVE CHANNELS- ITS GOOD ENOUGH FOR ME.. THERE IS O OFFICIAL DOCUMENT THAT SAYS THAT CAPS ARE NOT TO BE USED SOLELY IN A POST- ITS A PERSON PREROGATIVE. AND I CHOOSE TO USE THEM AND WHAT EVER POSTS CHILDISH PEOPLE WANT TO PROVIDE JUST GO IN ONE EAR AND OUT THE OTHER!!

    Who watches NBC(NothingButCrap) or the NFL(NotForLong) anyways. Haven’t watched a game yet this year and I won’t watch the STUPID BOWL either. Don’t need it and do not miss it all.

    • MyRoseHasTHORNS

      I might check out all their commercials online afterward just to see which products to avoid or boycott for their ridiculous lack of fiscal responsibility in paying those advertising prices.

      • Widget

        Excellent idea!! I won’t allow Budweiser in the house anymore. That was the start for me.

        • Arthur L. Overbey

          I understand they pulled back theor advertising for the game. If so 5 stars *****

      • Arthur L. Overbey

        WHAT A GOOD IDEA i UNDERSTAND EVEN ANHEISER BUSH [sp] dropped their advertising for the game.

  • ray2hill

    Of course they will get camera time. It is news to stand up to a racist president especially old lard ass.

    • SNUFFER

      10-4 ON THAT!! I HAVE TO CLEAN UP THE LAND MINES FROM THE NEIGHBORS WILD OFF LEASH DOGS IN MY FRONT YARD THAT DAY. THEN THE LUG NUTS ON MY TRUCK NEED TO BE WASHED AND POLISHED AND REINSTALLED THEN THE LICENSE LIGHT NEEDS TO HAVE THE BULB CLEANED AND REINSTALLED- AND THE MUFFLER UNDER THE DIESEL NEEDS TO BE WASHED OFF AND SANITIZED WITH A SOLUTION OF 50/50 BLEACH AND WATER. I CAN DO WORTHLESS SHIT LIKE THAT TO KEEP ME AWAY FROM A CHANNEL LIKE THAT DOES SUPPORT SUCH TREASON AGAINST A COUNTRY THAT HAS MADE THESE BLM ASSHOLES RICH BEYOND OUR WILDEST DREAMS. BUT IT OVER FOR ME I HAVE NO USE FOR THEM ON THE TUBE OR IN REAL LIFE- SPECIALLY TOMORROW ON MARTIN LUTHER KING COMMIES BIRTHDAY. I WOULD NEVER SUPPORT ANYONE THAT TOOK COMMUNIST MONEYS BACK IN THE CIVIL RIGHTS DAYS TO OVERTHROW THE US GOVERNMENT- IT CAME FROM RUSSIA. HE’S OUT OF HERE- AND TO FRIGGIN BAD!!!

      • Sue

        I can’t wait until their ridiculous salaries fall below MINIMUM WAGE! !

        • SNUFFER

          YOU KNOW WE MADE THEM WEALTHY BEYOND WHAT WE COULD EVER DO FOR OUR SELVES. BY BUY THEIR TICKETS AND THE JERSEYS LIKE WE DID- BUT I REALLY GOT HOT WHEN THEY STARTED DEFENDING THESE BLM AND THE BURNING AND LOOTING THEY DID IN THE EYES OF PROTEST. THEN WE JUMP THROUGH OUR ASSES TO TAKE DOWN HISTORICAL MONUMENTS OF A STRUGGLE THAT LET THEM STAY AND BECOME FREE AND AMERICANS. THATS 12% OF THIS COUNTRY’S POPULATION CAUSING ALL THIS CRAP – I HAVE NO USE FOR THEIR CULTURE OR RACE OR THEIR DOMINATED GAME. I KEEP AS FAR AWAY FROM THEM AS WE POSSIBLY CAN- I NEED NOTHING FROM THEM SHAPE FORM OR FASHION.. WE ARE PERFECTLY HAPPY KNOWING THEY ARE 40+ MILES AWAY FROM OUR HOME AND COMMUNITY.
          WE HAVE NO BOOM BOXES SITTING ON CURBS DISTURBING 6 BLOCKS IN ALL DIRECTIONS- NO ESCALADES SELLING DRUGS OUT OF THE WINDOWS- NO BASKETBALL COURTS IN THE STREET OR BLOCKING THE SIDEWALKS- NO GANGS OF BLACK THUGS LOOKING FOR CRAP- THEN WHEN THEY GET SOME CRAP THEY CAN’T JUST WASH OF – THEN ITS GOOD OLE “WHITIES” FAULT THEY HAVE ALL THE PROBLEMS IN THE WORLD. WHITIE IS FEEDING THE THRONGS OF THESE WORTHLESS BLM AND SUPPORTING THEIR ESCALADE HABITS AS WELL AS SUPPLYING THE BANK ROLL FOR THEIR STREET CORNER DRUG AND PROSTITUTE BUSINESS. OUT HERE WE DON’T HAVE THAT PROBLEM- AND IF IT DOES COME TO OUR AREA – I’LL JUST SELL IT OUT AND MOVE TO WHERE WE CAN BE AWAY FROM THEIR LIFESTYLES.

          • Sue

            I don’t support anything they have to sell. I can say I didn’t make them rich

          • Sue

            Happy trails to you.

          • SNUFFER

            NOW YOUR GETTING SILLY- I’LL BET A BURGER YOU DON’T KNOW WHERE YOUR STATEMENT CAME FROM?

  • Jeannie

    Sure!! Give the A$$E$ their 15 minutes of fame. I have not watched the super bowl since beyonce and will never watch another. nbc is just another thorn in the side of patriotism. These illiterates slap the face of every patriotic American.

  • Jiggs D

What a disgrace and they have no right to be in this country – they take up air and space and add nothing of value to them.

  • Dennis

    That camera time does not matter to me since I will never watch an NFL game no matter what. It has become a mockery of American values and could care less if it fails because of no viewer support or advertisers. You have shot yourself in the foot for the last time with this vet!

    This is the time to get back at mainstream media. We need to pull together as true Americans and boycott the NFL. We need to stop them and all the thugs playing football. They don’t deserve our taxpayers dollars. Pass this’s on on twitter and face book. They blocked my account there.

    I don’t watch the SuperBowl. But if the Steelers are in it I may tune in. I generally don’t watch the national anthem anyway nor the commericals nor halftime.

  • Saml31

    I live in the Tampabay area, so not watching our losing Buccaneers makes not watching any of the better teams easier as well. My dear departed friend and classmate Johnny Unitas would have kicked some a– for these disrespectful morons. I agree with all who invite Veterans to protest outside the gates on Super Bowl Sunday.

  • Alan404

    Surprising though it might be, the possibility of a much reduced number of viewers looms large, which might cause NFL executives among others to loose some sleep, who knows. There might even be a limit to the amount of crap that the American public will put up with in the name of pro football.

    • Shirley H. Greer

      We turned the game off! How can colleges pay a coach( Nick Saban) $11.125 million + $4 million signing bonus + $400,00 thousand completion bonus this year? This does not include all his several other coaches! The trustees approved a three year extension through 2024. The figures just don’t add up because the trustees said he would get $65 million over the next eight years. Add the figures of $11.125 million, $4 million and $400,00= over $92 million plus $400,00 thousand. Colleges may teach football but for this kind of state money they could add patriotism!

  • dan

    No problem. I won’t watch the game.

  • Bob Nettles

    I guess the NFL did not learn anything from this last year, personally if they keep this up I may never watch another football game again.

  • taliesin319

    If they sang like Barnabus and preached like Saint Paul my determination to rid my life of anything those gutter thugs do is the same. God, Country, Anthem, Pledge, the Military, Police, Firefighters and all Medical first Responders are infinitely more important than a pack of anti American Felons and their spineless Owners, and Coaches. As for NBC covering every aspect of their live performance, they have bent over forewards to prevent any non attenders from seeing all those empty seats. Hope those who attend film the stadium seats and upload the films not to Facebook but to conservative sites where the truth can get around. Conservative articles are being suppressed by both google and Facebook.

    • Elly

      taliesin319 – I read somewhere that they would be paying actors to fill the seats. Sad – I won’t be watching and I will be boycotting any sponsor who would spend millions to get their ads on the Super Bowl fiasco.

  • Diane Pope

    They get camera time for showing hate for American and NBC gets none of my time!

    • SNUFFER

      ABSOLUTELY ME TOO!!!

  • Widget

    I have been a Patriots fan since Bledsoe’s injury gave Tom Brady his amazing start as quarterback. I have not watched any NFL game since there Kaepernick incident. I truly miss football, but I refuse to support the NFL in any way until the players stop disrespecting our country and all the service men and women that risk their lives to protect our country. I will miss this year’s Superbowl as well. Maybe I’ll go shopping…😢

  • Jim Colon

    NBC can give them all the air time they want, but there will be a lot of us who will never see it. The NFL (No Fans Left) is slowly but surely digging their own grave. The owners and management are nothing but a bunch of gutless morons and those players taking a knee are just thankless idiots. What a bunch of losers.

  • Roger Beck

    I haven’t watched professional sports since the baseball strike of 1994. Premadonna (sp?) as*s*holes. From what I remember, the players were complaining, for one thing, that the team owners weren’t putting enough money into their pension accounts. Then I found out that the average salary for a ball player at that time was $1.3M! LET ME PLAY A GAME FOR A YEAR AND I WON’T NEED A PENSION ACCOUNT!!! There was also the fact that they were charging as much as $25 for an autograph and people like that idiot dennis rodman in basketball that totally ruined it all for me. Watch the “superbowl”? I’d rather have a root canal without pain medication!

  • Peter

    This season I have continues to watch some NFL games but not anywhere near as many as previously. Because I don’t see any reason to punish myself for the unpatriotic acts of some overpaid, spoiled, know nothing jocks. I prefer to notify the sponsors of the event that I will not purchase their products as long as they sponsor NFL. This Super Bowl game, because of it’s importance to the league and advertisers, deserves a massive boycott from attendees and viewers. If you have paid for an overpriced seat you should at the very least give a loud BOOO after the National Anthem to let the players and NFL know what you think of them. This game would be a great opportunity for the fans to show the world that we love the USA. I would love to see the NFL fall on such hard times that they were not able to pay the spoiled brats their outrageous salaries. maybe then the remaining players and NFL owners would tell them to get off their knees, demonstrate on their own time, and have respect for our Flag. As far as watching the game, everyone should let the sponsors know that the millions in advertising dollars would be better spent helping vets.

  • MichaelZZ

    NFL & PATRIOTISM, what’s it all about?

    Before a preseason game in 2016, NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat down, as opposed to the tradition of standing, during the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner”.

    During a post-game interview, he explained his position stating, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”

    In the 49ers’ final 2016 preseason game on September 1, 2016, Kaepernick opted to kneel during the U.S. national anthem rather than sit as he did in their previous games.

    The above represents the provenance of our current situation which appears to be the cause as to why some appear to reflect disrespect for our flag and the singing of our national anthem.
    The reason, as expressed by Mr. Kaepernick, is based upon what he characterizes as the oppression of people of color.

    His perception appears to have its roots embedded in the shootings of some black men by police officers. He doesn’t appear to include in his “thinking” that white men have been shot, as well.
    Some of these shootings may have been justified and some may not have been justified.
    The adjudications of these shootings may or may not have been correct.
    There are approximately 330 million people inhabiting our nation.
    Through September 25, 2017, 730 Americans have been shot and killed.
    That reflects 2.2 incidents per one million. Whereas any unjustified shooting is an abomination, one might think about the fact that there will, always, be anomalies. Of the 2.2, some were justified, some were not. The shootings include all races and ethnicities.

    Anyone who believes this or any nation is an example of perfection is incredibly confused.
    Mr. Kaepernick’s extrapolation from these shootings to conclude that the United States of America oppresses people of color could be characterized as illogical and convoluted, at best.

    Mr. Kaepernick was not and is not the real cause of our current situation. The problem appears to be due to the irresponsibility of the general manager of the San Francisco 49ers.

    A football stadium is a place of work for football players and staff. As such, management establishes rules and protocols.

    When Mr. Kaepernick first sat, the general manager should have established that all will show respect for the flag and the national anthem.
    The 1st Amendment does not apply to the workplace.

    The blame, for this ridiculousness, stupidity, and divisiveness, must be shared by the ownership of the 49ers and by Mr. Roger Goodell, the Commissioner of the NFL.

    The media, especially CNN, with MSNBC a close second, has exacerbated this insanity by promoting racism as the major factor. Don Lemon of CNN said that “taking a knee is constitutionally protected”. The producers and the legal department should have known that is an incorrect statement and apparently meant to inflame this phenomenon.

    An extremely serious question should be asked; why did CNN’s legal department allow that statement?

    The media is demonstrating that yellow journalism is an ugly tool that they will not hesitate to use.

    Fair minded people of all ilks must be demonstrably outraged.

    A rational solution to mitigate the damage done would be that Mr. Goodell and the ownership of the 49ers issue a joint statement apologizing to the nation for massively mishandling this matter.

    This mishandling by the 49ers and the NFL leadership appears to be caused by a combination of ignorance and stupidity which can be reversed by a sincere mea culpa, whereas certain media cannot utilize that path due to their apparent agenda, bias, and vicious premeditated intentions.

    One should be empathetic and understand why some have expressed their disdain for our flag. They have suffered from a confluence of factors, including the media massively misleading them.

    Next time, I will offer greater clarity, i.e., what I really think.

    The FCC should be admonished to review this matter with great urgency, diligence, and sincerity.

  • Donald Johnston

    Have not watched a NFL game in 2 years since Kaeperdick starting this ridiculous protest. Did watch last years Super Bowl. This year will mark the first Super Bowl I will miss. Up until now I had seen them all. I refuse to support a bunch of NFL thugs making millions while disrespecting our Flag And Anthem claiming oppression. Also, I don’t buy any NFL Sponsors products. The NFL giving Goodell a 5 years extension on his contract for $200 million and giving the protesters $87 million that was slated for Veterans showed where their loyalty lies. Goodbye and good riddance.

  • Bret Campos

    We all know that the people who side with the protests will watch, they have no respect for themselves or their country. REAL AMERICA !!!!! LET’S BOYCOTT THIS UNAMERICAN EVENT AND MAKE THIS THE FINAL YEAR FOR THE NFL

  • Bill

    No super bowl for me this year! Have not watched a nfl game this year or playoff and surely will not watch a bunch of piss ants perform their disgusting anti American disrespect for our country!

  • Shirley Hughes

    Not her reason we won’t be watching the game at all.

  • Ted Duke

    Thanks for the heads up. It confirms my decision not to watch NFL.

  • Donald Johnston

    The price for TV advertising during the Super Bowl is astronomical. Lack of attendance and viewing will help to drive down next year’s Sponsorships and advertising fees. Fans have the last say, not a bunch of ignorant NFL Felons. Football is a luxury, not a necessity but they don’t get it. When the NFL can’t pay their million dollar contracts where will they get a job?

    Haven’t watched the NFL this year and don’t intend to watch the alleged ?super bowl? The fake major tv networks are clearly under the control of idiotic liberal nuts.

  • Tony Winters

    Thes people seem to forget that WE the People actually control what we watch on TV and which sponsors we purchase our products from. It might take a little while for them to get the message but all We the People need to do is turn off or at least switch channels. Even better would be to write to the station, the sponsors and even the local markets that we will not be buying their products as long as they promote this Un-American activity. If the NFL disbanded today and there never was another football game played or shown on TV it wouldn’t hurt my feelings in the least. I haven’t paid much attention to football since Tommy McDonald played for the Philadelphia Eagles (1957-1968)

  • AV8TR

    My Father and myself will one day have our coffins draped with the American flag. The folded flag will be presented to my wife and children. I will not allow immature fools to desecrate the cherished symbol of our service by watching a “game.” NFL needs to reach down and grab ahold of itself and remember it was once rooted in patriotism.

  • Hunter

    I’m going to make it a range day and really enjoy my day. I don’t watch any football college or pro.

    • marshmil1789

      I’m not a sports fan myself so I can be considered “neutral”. So here’s my take. This “kneeling” crap was invented by a member of the Black race. Several other Black football players fell in line in lock step. Nothing they are doing is glorifying the greatest Nation on the planet. They are a small faction of Black racists following in line with the “BLM” minority, the “Black Panthers” minority, the NAACP minority and all other minority organizations embarrassing the educated, civilized Black people. Ignore that little faction of Black racists who show their butts on football fields. They are not worth the time of day in general or their paychecks in particular. They are racist upstarts. And you companies that advertise during their pseudo-ballgames are fools for spending your money on their events. People pay to see and enjoy a great American past time, not a minority of whiney overgrown brats.

  • Earl Spencer

    The NFL and the protesting players could stop this whole thing. IF ALL THE PLAYER WOULD SING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM AND CARRYOUT THEIR PROTEST IN SOME OTHER WAY. After all they would not be getting their very high salaries ad benefits if it were not for their freedom that were earned by the VETRANS that fought and died.

    • marshmil1789

      Amen Earl. But they don’t care. All they want is their high paychecks for chasing a ball. Dogs doing that are far more entertaining. How many of the kneelers are Veterans? Draft dodgers? If they can play football they cannot claim “IV-F” Classification. by the Draft Board.

  • SNUFFER

    I WOULD NOT PASS UP THE CHANCE TO SHOVEL THE NEIGHBORHOOD WILD DOGS SHIT OFF MY FRONT LAWN DURING THE PLAYING OF THE SUPERBOWL PROTESTORS CAMERA TIME. THEN WHEN I’M THROUGH WITH DUMPING THE DUNG FROM MY FRONT LAWN AND DEPOSITING IT VERY GENTLY IN THE YARDS WHERE THE BASTARDS CAME FROM- I WILL TRIM MY CITRUS TREES AND FERTILIZE FOR THE UP COMING GARDEN PLANTING ABOUT FEB 27TH. TOMATO SEEDLING ARE ALREADY ABOUT 6 INCHES TALL IN THE INCUBATOR- ALL CONTAINERS ARE PREPPED AND READY FOR THE SEEDLINGS – BY PLANTING IN CONTAINERS I CAN CONTROL HOW MUCH TEXAS SUNSHINE THEY GET AND LAST UNTIL THE FIRST FREEZE- WE PLANT ALL INDETERMINATE – SO WE WILL HAVE TOMATOES UNTIL FIRST FREEZE.
    SO, THERE ARE THINGS TO DO INSTEAD OF WATCHING A BUNCH OF UNGRATEFUL BLM PROTEST THE NATIONAL ANTHEM AND THE SUPPORT OF OUR FLAG AND SERVICEMEN AND WOMEN AROUND THIS WOULD MAKING IT POSSIBLE FOR THESE BLACK POS’S TO BECOME WEALTHY WAY MORE THAN THEY ARE WORTH. IF THEY WERE PAID $100 PER GAME – I THINK THAT WOULD BE WAY MORE THAN THEY LOOK TO ME.
    WHEN THEY STARTED THEIR MOVEMENT – THEY KILLED THE GAME OF PROFESSIONAL FOOTBALL FOR MILLION AND MILLIONS OF PATRIOTS IN THIS COUNTRY
    IF I WAS GIVEN FREE TICKET TO GO AND PISS IN EACH AND EVERYONE OF THEIR NO GOOD ASS FACES I’D TURN THEM DOWN. I WOULD NOT EVER AGAIN WASTE ANY OF MY VALUABLE TIME WATCHING THESE WORTHLESS BLM ASSHOLE PISS ME OFF ANYMORE. MY SON AND I SOLD EVERY JERSEY AND OTHER POS THEY EVER OFFERED AND GAVE THE PROFITS TO THE A CHILDRENS HOSPITAL FOR SOME GOOD FOR THE KIDS. I HAVE NO USE FOR A SINGLE ONE OF THEIR WASTE OF HUMANITY ASSES.

The coaches and owners will make it clear to the players that that can not happen on a national stage like that, and any players who do it may be getting cut or traded next season! As for pathetic NBC, why would we even care?!

    • Franie

      Why would you say that? There will, in all probability, be anthem protests for sure. These no brain, all brawn, nimwits are a scourge on society. Satan has them by the toe…or should I say, knee.

  • Robert Cuillerier

    NBC is not better than the kneelers; I have not watched football since this all started, I, therefore, returned my tickers to the SF 49winers and would you believe I got my money back. Now that the football season is almost over, I did a bit of calculation. Thank you to the kneelers, you just save me over $10,000.00. So I say, do the math, and you will start to watch high school sports. They are a lot classier players.

  • James Brown

    Why give up a wonderful show, guys beating up each other chasing a ball around. the face of the leader twisted funny looking when the kicker missed the pole. Don’t need to buy any clothes, food, etc. can laugh at either player and boo any time.. Don’t forget clean bathroom. Think of the games as entertainment.That players are overpaid children, that need a little adjustment in the military , USMC comes to mind……..

  • DianePenn

    It seems to me the best way to fight these unpatriotic players is to cut off much of the funding and not buy any of the items being advertised during that particular game. Without the money from advertisers how long would it be before everyone in the game would realize the kneelers are causing loss of funds through advertising.

  • Carolann Enkhaus

    Not watching…have no desire to see a bunch of buffoons trying to act like they mean something

  • Jim Strong

    Boycott the NFL, NBC, and all advertisers with adds on NBC.

  • TwoElks

    I expected no less from NBC, they have no real investigative journalists anymore. They would never air the truth even if they found it. NBC is part of the new and improved, “fundamentally transformed” America.
    As far as the NFL, they are dead they just don’t realize it yet. They committed national suicide over America’s song. The players, team mangers and owners have shown their true color and they are not red, white and blue. No one I know watches the NFL anymore. NFL= No Fans Left.

    Quite happy that I, for one, will not be watching. Whoever the sponsors are, I will not be buying. Play a full 4 hours of protesters if you like before and after the game. I am not the only one.

  • MacZ

    It’s NBC. Enough said! They think it embarrasses Trump and will help to bring him down.

    Good I hope everyone will see what these spoiled brats and those that support their actions are all about and it is no love of country. I wish they could all be forced to live without their money for at least a year in Africia’s poorest of poor countries. Maybe they will appreciated this county and all that they have been offered including their overblown salaries.

    NBC = Nothing But Crap, which is this stupid idea they are implementing during the Stupid Bowl.

    NBC – No Body Cares- losers focused on losers.

  • Gammi2Anna

    I imagine the powers that be who want to try the only thing they have left to get their fans back have now stooped to an all time low. Either they are just totally blinded to the impact of what they, the NFL Owners, Leaders, Players, Advertisers and Media Networks have done to destroy their organization or they are trying to use a political tactic that liberals use frequently. I can just hear them conniving this plan to treat the American people as if we are going to believe their opening statement in which they claim that over 100 million people will be watching the Super Bowl on Sunday.

  • jesusknight

    If people would just NOT BUY from their advertisers, they might suddenly see the light… what a bunch of idiots!

  • David Gearhart

    Why do they pick someone that is ultra liberal and will insult us all by making it a political statement instead of just entertainment? Showing the player showing off their racism and hate for America and whites is stupid for all. The player, the NFL , the media and the fans.

    I think NBC will be surprised to find out that the Super Bowl TV attendance will drastically be down. I do not plan to watch the Super Bowl just because of this announcement. If NBC is going to give the players who kneel special coverage I plan to greatly reduce my viewing of all NBC shows. Maybe this will get their attention!

  • READY2SCRAP

    How bout camara time for these puppets at the toilet bowl instead…

  • BT

    I have not watched a down of pro football this season, and am not planning to watch the Super Bowl or anything next season. The SB halftime show has been a disgrace for a few years now and I tuned it out some years ago. I will not watch pro football because they have left all of their patriotic viewing audience behind. Fine – situations change and we all have to adapt. I vote with my feet and the on/off button.

    Btw, supporting Trump has nothing to do with this situation. He just called them out for their shameful conduct; then more and more players doubled down on their insolence. That’s what I find intolerable, and I will not tune in to see them do it. Don’t need to do that – no need to aggravate the lack of peace in that arena. I find that my happiness level increases the less I have to experience it.

  • Dale P Patterson

    Be prepared for the worst ratings drop for the Super Bowl ever. I won’t be watching.

  • Thomas Ewing

    I’m a retired Army Vet and a VFW member. We stopped watching FOOTBALL when those IDIOTS stopped respected our FLAG and NATIONAL ANTHEM. Whats worse is the IDIOT in charge of the NFL letting those players get away with acting like children. We use to watch FOOTBALL because we liked the game, not to see a political statement. When they again show respect for our FLAG and NATIONAL ANTHEM, we’ll start going back to and/or watching the game again.

  • Todd Nelson

    The NFL and NBC deserve each other. There are a lot of fans who will be joining me in not watching what used to be a great sport. If they want to disrespect our flag and our country, don’t expect me to watch. It is time to start boycotting the sponsors as well.

    i

  • Spencer Craig

    I have stopped watching the NFL because of the anti-American disrespect for our flag and National Anthem. What if Americans took a knee and the NFL WAS INDUCTED and sent overseas to fight. This great country has provided the opportunity for the players to make millions. Not only in salaries but in endorsements. This article proves once again that those at the top lead the way in trying to disrupt our country. So I too will not be watching the Super Bowl this year nor will I support the sponsors who spend millions for a 30 second ad.

  • Robert Wayne

    I haven’t watched a game all year. Don’t miss it in the least. Who cares about a bunch of stupid showoff hood rats anyway?

  • McFerguson

    Fine. I think the more exposure these useful idiots of the left are given, the sooner the NFL will be brought to its knees. It’s about money and when the majority of the team owners realize this nonsense is strangling their profits, as fans boycott the games and TV money shrinks, while millionaire football players kneel and give the “finger” to the Flag and the National Anthem, the nonsense will cease.

  • Cheryl Detar

    A hundred million viewers? I doubt it. I have not watched a game, since beyonce’ did her 1/2 time BLM show. Go ahead and spotlight the “kneelers.” Many more will “turn you off.”

  • There will be millions upon millions of people who won’t be watching the Super Bowl. The NFL has become insignificant in the minds of the general population. Nobody wants to watch a bunch of infantile millionaires bump into each other for 3 hours. We all have better things to do.

  • Joseph

    Y’all are going to freek at my saying this but I consider taking a knee to actually be quite respectful and patriotic. Protest is a core American Value that began our Nation. I do not see this as disrespecting the flag and our country at all – just the opposite. I know I’m in the vast minority expressing this on this site and expect to be barraged with hateful responses and name calling. Fine. I just wanted to express the view I and many, many others share. Is there any way you who are so vitriolically opposed to “taking a knee” can see this other view point?
