There’s No Going Back: The NFL Made a Huge Mistake

We can’t imagine that anyone with a financial stake in the future of the NFL thought that shameful display on Sunday would be anything but disastrous, but we can believe that at least some of the owners and players thought they could escape unscathed. Unfortunately, they may be wrong about that. Social media has been alive with anger towards the protests and the league, and a new survey from the Remington Research Group indicates that the NFL may have bitten off more than they care to chew.

“Last week, Donald Trump said NFL players should stand and be respectful during the national anthem. Do you think NFL players should stand and be respectful during the national anthem?” the survey asked Americans across the country.

64% of respondents said they agreed with the sentiment. Only a quarter said no.

“On Sunday, a number of NFL players knelt during the national anthem in protest of Donald Trump’s statements, including players from your favorite team,” continued the survey. “Does this make you more likely or less likely to watch your favorite team’s games in the future?”

50% of respondents said the demonstrations on Sunday made them LESS LIKELY to watch their favorite team’s games. Another 50% split between “more likely” and “no difference,” but you have to take into account that many of those respondents may not have been regular football fans to begin with.

Most sources inside the NFL have indicated that Sunday’s defiance was a one-time thing – a league wide “EFF YOU” to President Donald Trump that isn’t likely to be repeated. And while we are sure that’s the case, there will still be a number of players taking a knee for the national anthem in the coming weeks, and that’s sure to keep this culture war going. Unfortunately for the NFL, the war is between players and the fans. And that’s not a fight the players are going to win.

This whole thing is actually a crying shame. Football fans do not want to think about politics while they watch their Sunday games. Football is a time to get AWAY from all of that crap. A time to just celebrate the glory that is football. But no, the left has to ruin everything that is great about this country, including the NFL. There are simply too many Americans who cannot bring themselves to support a league that sides with anti-patriotic protests, no matter how much they love the game itself. Even those who aren’t outraged enough to boycott may just feel their love for the game – at least, the game as played on the professional level – slowly seep away as more and more liberal nonsense invades the NFL.

Maybe we’re wrong and all of this will blow over. But we have a feeling something has been set in motion that can’t easily be stopped.

    The NFL is now 70% black. We have seen the results of this, rapes, murders, problems everywhere. At the University of Florida in Gainesville, there has always been problems with the Gators and also with the Jaguars in Jacksonville, Florida and high schools all over this country, in fact yesterday, 9 of the Gators were up on Felony charges for a ploy for making money they cooked up and a high school also up on charges for laundering money. This NFL kerfuffle has opened the flood gates for people to begin to let rip on the not so pretty, doings of these thugs.

    As to the NFL everyone must remember that the people they are taking a knee for, those that brought about the formation of the BLM, were ALL every single one of them thugs with long records. They are NOT standing for good and wholesome, productive blacks they are kneeling for thugs. Personally I never watched the NFL or the NBA and certainly won’t now.

    The sickest thing I saw was when the Patriot player, number 78 was the only one standing then retracted his good act and apologized for it. A veteran of wars. How can he face himself in the mirror from now on? How do you sell out your countrymen/women and keep your honor? Disgusting, I am an Army Combat Support nurse since 1988 and served in two wars. To number 78 I saw go to Hell.

      Screw them all.

      • Tiger

        I see where restaurants across America are boycotting the games, not showing them in the bars, the coaches now making lame excuses saying it has nothing to do with the flag or anthem etc, they are like the husband caught cheating whose wife divorces him, he finds himself raked over the coals for money and strapped so badly he can barely afford to feed himself.

        Soon he wonders if the floozy was worth it.

        • Cheryl Detar

          In addition, some sponsors of the Super Bowl are already pulling their ads. Bud is also considering pulling their ads. IMO, the NFL will NEVER recover from this tragedy that THEY created. Wonder how they’ll do in the “private sector?”

          • Tiger

            Amen how will they do in the “Private Sector”, I suppose we could ask the original kneeler, Kappie baby how it feels and how life is now. Can’t get a decent job on what they do, unless they want to join ISIS, possible that with the hate for Whitey they have. They, for the most part put through school and even grade school up to play the game. Scandals erupting now concerning that across this country, playing into the selling of sports names like Nike and others, big trouble and when this is over, who knows maybe we will get real athletes again who play for love of the sport and are decent people. Wouldn’t that be something?

          • gingergirl

            I read recently that “Kappie Baby” is being radicalized by his muslim wife. Kinda fits his narrative of hating America!

            What else are you sheep going to let
            Trump rob you of? He’s the one who hates America, why can’t you see that?

          • Kathryn Jordan

            Trump will always hate America. He is slow to help those in need after a hurricane destroys everything they own; he forgets that Puerto Rico is a territory of America. He will never unite this country. As George Washington said: “United we stand, divided we fall.” That is what is happening under Trump: we are divided so we will fall.

          • Mario Ruffino

            Take your head out of your butt,. Trump has done more for victims of a hurricane than any other President in History and in the quickest amount of time. He started to organize help BEFORE the hurricane even hit full force..You must be a Democrat that believes all the BS your party put out without questioning its authenticity.

          • Kathryn Jordan

            Of course I am a Democrat. Trump hasn’t done shit for the victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma, Jose, Maria. You believe in all the BS that “fake news” Trump puts out on his tweets which are not true. Trump will always hate America. He prefers to forgive his favorite groups: white supremacists, neo-nazi, KKK, and all the other hate groups.

          • backtofront

            Sorry to burst your bubble, but President Trump has been hailed, even by those on the left, for his outstanding response to victims of the hurricanes, INCLUDING residents of Puerto Rico. You will never learn the truth if you don’t look for it.

          • undunder

            Ah Kathy say it aint so. Might want to check your facts. I believe that even the NYT gives the Trump administration high marks for dealing these disasters. Of course they try hard to avoid that so they bury it by mentioning only the agencies that are following his orders.

          • Mary C. Blood

            Sorry. That division came to full bloom under the last president. He is why we have President Trump. Thank God and MAGA!

          • Kathryn Jordan

            Our last president tried to BRING this country together. Dotard never denounced the White Supremacists and the Neo Nazi for what they did in Charlottesville, VA. Never said a word to the mother who lost her daughter when a car ran through that crowd. Dotard HAS NOT UNIFIED this country; he has kept it divided. Unless he is impeached or defeated in 2020, this country will remain divided.

          • Mary C. Blood

            I disagree with you. If you can hear, then you know that Trump did denounce what you call the white supremacists and neo-Nazis. However, it takes two to tango, and your protesters should never have shown up. Your protesters came to make trouble. And they did. I believe your protesters are called Antifa, and I believe your Antifa has been delineated as domestic terrorists. Trump was correct in condemning both sides, but the tragedy would never have occurred if that woman had not shown up to protest. She took her life in her own hands when she jumped on that band wagon. As for President Trump offering her mother an apology, you should expect that immediately after Hillary apologizes for Benghazi, Haiti, thousands of government emails on a private server, selling our uranium to Russia and benefiting personally from it, as well as the long trail of bodies that seem to fall in her path. As for Obama trying to unite the United States, please name one thing he did to bring the races and political parties together. Oh! I know! He told illegal immigrants they could vote in the 2016 election with no fear of prosecution.

          • Kathryn Jordan

            I did not say that Dotard “offering the mother of the woman who was killed and apology”. You miss understood my words. I said he should have offered his condolences for the death of that woman who was run over by a Neo-Nazi. Was that woman there to protest? None of can know for sure. Dotard did a sing song on his statements of what happened in Charlottesville, VA. You cannot know for sure if that woman was there to protest. Who showed up in armor? It sure was not the protesters that were in armor; it were the Neo-Nazi and White Supremacists that were armored. I can hear perfectly clear; i hear a Dotard tell lies every day. And Mary, get your head out of the sand.

          • Mary C. Blood

            Not only are you choosing not to hear what the president really said, but you can’t seem to recall what you said even when your own words are on the page in front of you.
            Here are your two comments. “Never said a word to the mother who lost her daughter when a car ran through that crowd.”
            Then you said I misunderstood your words. You said, “I said he should have offered his condolences for the death of that woman who was run over by a Neo-Nazi.”
            Your two statements are in conflict with each other. Besides that the president tried to contact the mother several times. And, yes, the mother said her daughter was there to protest.
            No, Trump did not sing-song in his statement about Charlottesville. He said what he meant the first time. Fault was on both sides. I will say again that no violence would have occurred if your communist Antifa had not been there pushing through the barriers to cause violence and try to shut down a group’s right to peaceable assembly. Your group did not go there for peaceable assembly or even for a peaceable protest. They came to fight and cause harm. They came there to disrespect the laws of our land. They accomplished their goal.
            My head is not in the sand. I am stating facts. Yours seems to be pumped full of propaganda and lies. I urge you to flush it all out by taking a few minutes to read our Constitution and Bill of Rights, our nation’s founding documents.

          • Kathryn Jordan

            Thanks for the compliment. I can be a bitch. I would have liked to have served my country; I have a medical condition that prevents me from doing that. I contribute to my party. I contribute to those who are victims of disasters like the recent hurricanes. I don’t have the money to move as I live on my social security disability. so do me a favor and go to hell. I am sure that Satan will welcome you.

          • Kathryn Jordan

            If I did not have medical condition that kept me for “serving my country”, I would have served my country. And I am not “one dumb bitch” though I thank you for the name. I do use common sense. I don’t need to move anywhere. Maybe you need to move somewhere else.

          • Suzanne Marienau

            Right. He donated 1 million dollars, visited the disaster areas several times, declared the areas disaster zones so that federal funds could be distributed. What did the libbers do? Criticized. Never donated anything, never went to help.
            What did YOU do? Nothing. Right. You talk big but contribute absolutely nothing.

          • Vote for Truth

            Donald Trump not only gave $1,000,000 spread out to many agencies that provide help to TX and LA, he also gave a huge donation to Franklin Graham’s organization that helps these people when they suffer terrible hurricanes. I wouldn’t be surprised if he didn’t also give money to the agencies in Fl. He could not visit Puerto Rico before next week because he probably could not even land on that island. He is visiting there next week on Tuesday and he is also visiting the Virgin Islands.

          • Kathryn Jordan

            What DID I DO? As a liberal Democrat, I sent $200 out of my Social Security Disability; I split it so $100 went to the the victims of Hurricane Harvey and then $100 went to the victims of Hurricane Irma. The people of Central Ohio came to the aid of both victims of Hurricanes Irma and Harvey. That was both liberal Democrats and Republicans. So your response is absolutely nuts.

          • Kathryn Jordan

            So where is that 1 million dollars? It hasn’t gotten to those areas. As a liberal, I DONATED $200.00 OUT of my Social Security monthly check. $100.00 went to the victims of Hurricane Harvey and the other $100.00 went to the victims of Hurricane Irma. Both Democrats and Republicans, here in Central Ohio, sent trucks full of stuff that victims of both hurricanes needed. What did you do? Sit on your a$$ and do nothing? Or did you send money to help those victims? Did you volunteer to help those victims in the shelters? find their belongings at their homes? Probably not.

          • Firewagon

          • Vote for Truth

            YOU obviously don’t have a clue what Trump is doing for Puerto Rico. He has stopped doing what the Jones Law said to do which would have taken longer to get supplies into that country. Donald Trump did an excellent job in Texas, Louisiana and Florida. Because Puerto Rico is an island that has roads blocked from the trees that fell, they had to do the clearing of those roads. I watched the Secretary in charge of FEMA when he was on standing and telling all the reporters just what we are doing to help Puerto Rico.

            YOU must be talking about Obama who couldn’t even leave his vacation to help the people in LA last year. He was the President who hates America and showed it in everything he did and said.

          • gingergirl

            They most certainly are showing their hatred of America by “giving the finger” to the flag, the anthem, our veterans and their fans. If they have a beef with the police, there are other ways to address those problems. How much have these rich, spoiled players given back to their communities? Mentoring young people, creating places for children to go to (clubs, gyms, rec rooms, etc.) after school to get them off the streets. My guess is, not much, if anything. They’d rather take their millions and party. Pathetic.

            I am going to say something that many will pounce on me for. I am an Army Combat Support nurse since 1988, I served in two wars. During over a year each time, I can count on one hand and not use all the fingers of blacks or women I saw in our RR or ICU. During this war I served in Landstuhl, Germany, we had all , I mean ALL from downrange come to us, I saw one black woman beginning of the war, she was standing behind a tank and gave the wrong signal and got run over, that is it, and only one other woman. I won’t name her. I saw no black soldiers.

            The black women officers, major and above as much use to us as a tit on a nun, vulgarity forgive me, they were nothing but sucking off of the military. They actually laughed and said to me, you don’t see no black men in there do you? They got more sense, no they got no nothing but what they are, hating whitey.

            Not to say all but look to the casualty lists and tell me how many blacks you see or women. Sick of it, sick to my guts of the whole thing. Sick of Muslims, sick of blacks and sick of the U.S. being fools.

      Maybe, Coach Tomlin threatened to bench/fire him. That coach was pretty angry at #78. The guy did the right thing on Sunday, but on Monday, he still has a family to provide for. There are several ways Coach Tomlin could “get even” with #78. It appears to me that all these protesting/anarchist groups got started on the foundation of “Hands up don’t shoot” that was proven in the local court and in the very biased DOJ, to have been a lie. Not to be discouraged by the truth, BLM, antifa and others chose to hold America hostage and for what? Providing opportunities to people of all races and ethnicities to earn a better life for themselves and their families, the opportunities to earn millions depending on your skill sets and work ethic. Do all people have the same gifts? NOPE. But that harsh truth doesn’t change regardless of what type of economy, government, or club membership is in vogue. These folks bankrolling these movements know that. Those with the deep pockets have already grabbed their piece of the pie. Most by riding the capitalism ship. No, a subversive destructive movement is crawling along the underbelly of America. A dangerous progressive underbelly. I defy any of these protesters to find a country where they would have a better life especially those who sup at the government troughs. There were people who hated America long before Michael Brown. I for the life of my don’t understand that hatred. Progressives started decades ago to take control of America. They insinuated themselves into our education system and now they control it. Look at the results. They’ve taken control of our language. Just look at the PC police. And now they’ve taken control of our healthcare. A lot of stuff is swirling around the anti-American movement. God help us.

      I still am pleased that #78 stood up. Yes, he sat back down, but on Sunday he stood.

      • Tiger

        Understood all you say, family or not, nothing is more valuable than your honor and when you lose that you are a shell of a human being. My father a Marine taught me that, if you believe it or not I have stood against all odds, lost jobs and stood in front of CEO to keep that honor and my word.

        He is nothing to me now and I have no respect for him, he has made more than enough in his career to have enough money to change fields or to make the field he is in change. Greater men have lost life and fortune to keep this Republic.

        • YOLADANE

          Tiger you are soooo right about honor. We found out just who in this country has that quality didn’t we? We found out that almost nobody in the NFL has honor. Owners and coaches who we thought were great people took the side of these anti-American IDIOTS or they were to afraid to stand up for the country because they did not want to piss off their players. The Commissioner of the NFL in my opinion was the most sickening of them all. He said that the President disrespected the NFL. SO, it’s OK to disrespect the country who gave us the NFL but God forbid we disrespect the NFL. I have NEVER heard such ARROGANCE in my life. These bastards in the NFL are interested in one thing and one thing only. THE BOTTOM LINE. Even if it means selling out their country. That attitude was on FULL DISPLAY last Sunday. By the way, Mike Tomlin, the coach of the Steelers is a COWARD for doing what he did. It is SICK to watch the COMMUNIST LEFT in this country to continue to ruin our traditions and denigrate our history. WE HAVE TO STOP THEM !!!

            THE BLACKS DID IT TO THEMSELVES – THINKING THAT 12% OF THE TOTAL POPULATION OF AMERICA COULD BULLY THE REST OF THE COUNTRY INTO DISRESPECTING THE FLAG. IF THE BLACK POPULATION WOULD RESPECT THE RULES AND LAW AND ORDER- LIKE THE REST OF THE POPULATION – THEY WOULD HAVE NOT A LEG TO DISRESPECT ANYTHING ON. THEY WANT THE RULES AND LAW AND ODER TO NOT APPLY TO THEM. LOOK AT THEIR BEHAVIOR ALL OVER THE COUNTRY- THE BURNING – THE LOOTING- THE DISRESPECT OF LAW AND ORDER. THEY WANT THEIR DRUGS AND DRUG TRADE TO BE OFF LIMITS TO LAW ENFORCEMENT.
            I’M DONE WITH THE NFL AND ALL IT STANDS FOR. I THINK THE NFL STAND FOR N—–S FOR LIFE. I WOULD NOT WASHING MY MONEY ON THEM FOR PARKING AT A METER ON THE STREET CURB!! I WISHED I HAD SEEN THIS COMING YEARS BACK – I’D OF SPENT OUR HOUSEHOLD MONEY ON YARD FERTILIZER OR SHITZ FIRST!!!!

            Rich, immature, ungrateful, & uneducated college grads. I just watched Mysteries at the Museum. A black scientists at John Hopkins invented a surgical tool that was used by heart surgeons to reroute blood vessels to provide more oxygen to the heart. This saved the lives on countless babies from the blue baby syndrome. It was a death sentence up to this time. This Black American should be celebrated, not a sports a figure. No such thing as a sports hero.

            YES SIR AND I THINK 75% OF AMERICANS HAVE HAD JUST ABOUT ENOUGH OF THESE AHOLES. I HAVE A REAL PROBLEM WITH SOMEONE THAT WENT THROUGH PUBLIC SCHOOL AND SUPPOSEDLY COLLEGE AND CAN’T SAY THE WORD “ASKED” INSTEAD OF AXXED. IF IT WAS MY WHITE AZZ SAYING AXXED FOR THE PROPER WORD ASKED I WOULD OF FAILED EVERY GRADE I WENT TO. BUT THEY WERE LET GO TO TRASH THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE BECAUSE THEY THOUGHT IT WAS SMART TO SOUND LIKE IDIOTS AND WANT TO BE IN THEIR OWN LITTLE AXXED WORLD. NOW THEIR LITTLE AXXED SOUNDING WORLD IS CLOSING IN AROUND THEIR IGNORANT ASSEZ. HOW CAN THERE BE BLACK EQUALITY IN THE JOB M,ARKET- WHEN THEIR EDUCATION LEVEL IS SO LOW THEY CAN’T MAKE CHANGE FOR A DOLLAR. WOULD YOU HIRE SOMEONE LIKE THAT TO WORK IN YOUR BUSINESS? NOT ME- I WANT SOMEONE I CAN TRUST AND SOMEONE I DON’T HAVE TO PUT UNDER SURVEILLANCE CAMERA ON A DAILY BASIS TO KEEP MY BUSINESS FROM BEING STOLEN RIGHT UNDER MY NOSE. I WANT SOMEONE WITH A GOOD WORKING KNOWLEDGE OF ENGLISH AND WILL HAVE MY BUSINESS IN MIND EVERY TIME WE ARE OPEN FOR BUSINESS. MY CUSTOMERS WANT TO BE SPOKEN TO IN AN ENGLISH LANGUAGE- NOT SOME OFF THE WALL BLACK CRAP THEY WANT TO SPEAK. IF THEY WANT EQUALITY IN THE JOB MARKET THEN LET THEM BECOME EDUCATED IN HOW TO CONVERSE PROPERLY WITH ENGLISH SPECKING PEOPLE THAT DON’T LIKE TO HEAR AXXED. OR WIFF OR SOME STUPID BLACK CRAP DIALECT. I AM LUCKY TO HAVE GOOD PEOPLE WORKING FOR MY BUSINESS WHILE I’M AWAY- PEOPLE I CAN TRUST IF I’M GONE 2 YEARS. THEY DO THE RIGHT THING AND CAN BE TRUSTED. BLACKS BRING ALL THE CRAP ON THEMSELVES- NO ONE WOULD EVEN KNOW THERE AROUND EXCEPT FOR THE DRUG DEALERS AND THE PIMPS AND THE CAR BURGLARS AND THE SHOP LIFTERS AND THE HOME INVADERS ETC ETC AND ON AND ON. AND THE BURNERS AND THE LOOTERS AND THE RIOTERS AND THE SHOOTER OF POLICE AND SHOOTERS OF THEIR OWN BREED- MAYBE NOT A BAD THING THERE!!! I’M JUST REAL TIRED OF ALL THE BS THEY HAVE GOT GOING ON A DAILY BASIS. GO TO WORK AND GO BY THE RULES AND THE LAW AND YOU HAVE NO PROBLEMS. JUST PLAIN ENGLISH!!!

            I completely agree in theory. I do wonder, though, what #78 was up against. Some powers that be are powerful and can bring down mighty men. Doesn’t men those mighty men aren’t honorable. Just means they are not the most powerful. I was disappointed that #78 recanted, but I am willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. I continue to be glad he stood up on Sunday when pretty much no one else around the league did.

            I remember going into my bank an seeing a tent dweller sitting with a guy, I went to the cop, I had known for years and said hey the sign says no hats or sunglasses she could have a midget terrorist under that tent. He said I know but we can’t touch them.

            President Trump did NOT rob anybody. The Leftist who don’t want to salute our flag or hear the National Anthem are the ones who want all Americans to do what they do. These players have a right to protest, but NOT DURING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM or before the flag because it represents all of America, and all the military who have died to have that flag honored. It is an honor for America to stand up for our flag. Have you ever watched the Olympics where every country stands when their flag is raised. Don’t you think all Americans can still do that because we live in the greatest country in the world.

            Yes there should be more discussion about cops and blacks who break the law and then expect the cops to just ignore that. If the Blacks would just listen to the cops when they say, “stop”, then those blacks would not be shot at. That is what every American needs to do when the cops tell us to “stop”. This would happen to Whites if they ignore the commands of the cops too.

            You must be kidding. Try 3 million, not 300 million. We don’t even have 300 million eligible voters in the USA. Most of the 3 million votes were through voter fraud. That is why our founding fathers established the electoral college so that all of the smaller, less populated states would have a fighting chance to win. If not, just the voters and California and New York would cause the popular-vote win every time.

            President Trump is speaking for ALL of America when he says it is wrong to kneel during the National Anthem or before the flag. There were 2 polls since that happened on Sunday and over 68% of the American people agree with the President. Blacks have a right to want Americans to understand their grievances against some cops, but NOT DURING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM or BEFORE THE FLAG. Too many people have died for that flag to be respected and should not be part of their protests.

          • Robert Uda

            The only time I would ever kneel during the National Anthem is if we were under attack by an enemy. I would then kneel to pray to Heavenly Father–the same way General George Washington did at Valley Forge during the Revolutionary War.

    • McFerguson

      Sorry,Tiger, but that player you’re talking about was a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers, not the Patriots. But, that aside, the issue the players are kneeling about is a phony one – the alleged killing of blacks by police officers and dissing the Flag and the National anthem because of it. Crime is a huge problem in the black communities and black-on-black crime is a stunning rebuke of the culture in those communities. Better that the pampered athletes from those communities use their money and free time to go back home and teach the young people in those communities that crime and violence is no path to a successful like. Moreover, each of them need to be taught to respect the police and to follow their instructions and not to confront them. Right now the NFL is in a losing proposition. The fan base will not support a sporting event where the participants make more in one game they many of the fans do in a year, yet still show disdain for the Flag and country that gave them the wherewithal to be successful if that sport. It’s a downhill spiral if the NFL fails to recognize that.

      • Tiger

        Yes I was told about that and changed it. I believe they and the BLM along with other black Supremacist groups across America, realize that Americans, for the most part are alive and well and fully engaged in our country and won’t stand for much more from them.

        If they managed their fortunes correctly, didn’t squander it, they should do nicely in a little average home, and a little average job.

          • WatchDoggy

            This doesn’t make it right. This is why Whites should also be standing with the protest. Look up Tamir Rice and tell me what he deserved. The protest is not against veterans or America like Trump told you, it’s against the injustice that should be addressed.

          • Robert Uda

            @WatchDoggy: Then, they should pick another venue to express their grievances of injustice, not during the playing of the national anthem. How about doing it during halftime activities? Stay away from agitating the great group of Armed Forces, retirees, and veterans. The NFL and ABA will go the route of the dying Oscars and Emmys if they insist on insulting a huge, powerful group of loyal, patriotic Americans.

          • Tiger

            Wrong and it is in the NFL rules to stand. Bullshit and more bullshit. These guys are kneeling for thugs, whose deaths were spotlighted during the thug Obama’s reign of terror, when BLM began and they stood for those thugs that were killed, why for running from the cops, not doing what they were told, etc. So NO NOBODY should be kneeling for any of them.

            Trump called them SOB and he was right.

        • McFerguson

          Nonsense! For the most part those blacks you mention are armed with a knife or hand gun and are engaged in criminal activity when confronted by a policeman. They’re not sitting in Micky D’s munching a Big Mac and attacked by a cop. Wake up!

          • WatchDoggy

            That’s just a stereotype with no truth to it. The protest is against the killing of unarmed individuals and ones shot in the back and two children even. Look up Tamir Rice and you’ll see more of what I’m referring to.

          • McFerguson

            No, you look up Michael Brown, Ferguson, MO, 3 years ago, from which sprang the lie of “Hands up, don’t shoot.” A colossal lie that gave rise to the Black Lives Matter crowd, you know, “pigs in a blanket, fry’em like bacon.” Understand that, bask in it, study the crime statistics for blacks, then we’ll have a real discussion.

        • The Redhawk

          and WHY was there a confrontation with the POLICE??? What were those “innocent’ THUGS doing??? LOOTING?? STEALING??? Throwing Rocks at the Police?? Or bottles full of urine?? IDIOT! and where did this LAW and Order Incident take place???????

    • Jan Kolacy

      He did not appogise to us for standing. He apologized to his coach and team for not backing them. If you read what the coach said about him, was horrible, he was thrown to the wolves for not staying in the tunnel. Just imagine how much pressure or what was involved with the statement he made. I personally believe in him as a good person. He came out of the tunnel. End of story.

      • Tiger

        He apologized I read it. He made excuses for his team mates. He did the right thing, the people of this country, millions backed him, the pressure would have been on his coach and all the team, cowards that they all are, he lost out.

        End of story.

      If 70% of the NFL players are black, and since NFL players are vastly overpaid; vastly overpaid; vastly overpaid, how pray tell can they claim that they are kneeling for “social justice” unless of course “social justice” means that NFL players are demanding that they be paid vastly less; vastly less; vastly less!!!

            Outstanding! Evil ALWAYS thrives on appeasement! Christianity and Cowardice are oxymoronic and imperfect together. Playing nice with evil is evil. Evil needs to learn how to fear good because God is all good and FEAR OF THE LORD is vital to peace on earth and good will toward all men. Love means leading or driving the loved one out of or away from evil not making them easy and comfortable in evil. Evil never sleeps while good often snoozes. Evil is like Cancer. It kills. Who in their right mind would welcome cancer cells into their bodies under the imbecilic notion that keeping cancer cells out of human bodies is discrimination against cancer cells when discrimination against cancer cells is ALWAYS an act of love? Without discrimination there wouldn’t be a civilization. Discrimination is a vital and value added societal good when it squeezes out and suffocates evil. We are in a world that does the opposite as part of the ceaseless cosmic civil war. That’s why CLARITY and CERTITUDE are the ultimate CHARITIES.

        The inequality is right there on their team. QB making $135 million & tackle .making $2.4 million. Why are not all making the same. Like $500/game. There is no reason for the vast disparity in wages. 11 players required to play. Take one player out its 10, you lose. No one player is better than the other. QB can’t win without players in front. The inequality is on their job. So protest that.

        • Knowledge Transfer

          All talents; skills ; ambitions; and values are NOT created equal any more than all teams are created equal etc. Otherwise, each year in every team sport all team sports would ALWAYS have equal numbers of wins; loses; and ties and the word championship would become extinct. Ant lineman who believes they can plat quarter back should prove that he has the skills to play quarterback thus equal rights must always be linked with equal responsibilities. Any right that isn’t married to a commensurate responsibility isn’t a right. It’s a wrong. The disparities in earnings are justified while the amount of the disparities can be questioned.

        Facts bear it out. I used to watch baseball with my father along with some football, athletes back then were basically good men, they were real people I could look up to and others who played sports, but today it just gets dirtier and dirtier. Now the FBI exploding a college Basketball scandal that will blow heads off.

        Clark Hunt, CEO and Owner of the Kansas City Chiefs

        Mr. Hunt called a meeting with all of his Coaches, Players and field staff and firmly told them,
        “You are all simply paid performers on a stage and that field is my stage!
        You will stand, with your hand over your heart and with respect, when our Country’s National Anthem is being played or
        you will no longer be a Kansas City Chief, a Coach for the Kansas City Chiefs or have any association with the Chiefs Organization!
        I will immediately fire you, no matter who you are!”
        You can make your political statements off the field, but when you’re employed by me and I’m signing your check,
        I demand that you make our fans proud and not embarrass them.”

            @Tiger, Please do your research and proper vetting. Do not believe everything you read or receive in emails. I first was highly impressed and wrote an article praising Clark Hunt. However, after seeing what the Kansas City Chiefs did during the beginning portion of their last football game, all of those nice words about him came crashing down before me. Sorry for the disappointment. I was sorely disappointed to see what they did in video.

          Tiger: This country is all about keeping OUR personal choices & what you choose to think is YOUR personal choice! I’m proud of Alejandro because he acted out of HIS heart, NOT his teams swamper heart!! He said his action was NOT to ” throw his team under the bus”, but they threw HIM under the bus, didn’t they???

          • Tiger

            Not my personal opinion Irene, but facts and you don’t like it then don’t. Now here are the rules. He acted out of fear of losing his job after an ass chewing by a coach. His apology said it all.

            The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the NFL League Rulebook. It states:

            ‘The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all
            players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem. During the
            National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at
            attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain
            from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in
            good condition … It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we
            continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the
            flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the
            National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions,
            and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above,
            including first offenses.’

          • Tiger

            Thank the Almighty good black men across this country and black athletes letting these thugs, who are protesting for the thugs that were brought into the limelight by the thug Obama, who then allowed the thugs BLM to be formed and to continue to stand up for those thugs who ran from the police, wouldn’t stop when told to and committing crimes.

      Really? So all NFL players because they are black rape and murder and get away with it. Whether you watch professional sports or not is immaterial. The NFL protested nonviolently. So the hell what. During the Viet Nam Era people burned flags. My question to you is after you judge people and tell them to go to hell, how do you look at yourself in the mirror everyday? You are a hypocrite as well as a bigot.

      • Tiger

        Really?????????? Has there been a change in the NFL? Is it not 70% black? Right they protested against what Rebecca??????? And for what? For thugs that were killed because they were doing something against the law and what the Hell Rebecca does our anthem or our flag have to do with that?????

        You make me sick, Nam just like today stupid people, stupid college kids, I will tell it like it is and I will tell them to go to Hell, I served in two wars as an Army Combat Support nurse since 1988 I look at myself in the mirror and see a soldier who was true to her country, her flag and her anthem, what the Hell do you see you filthy bitch? Bigot because I call it as I see it?

        Fluck you and all your kin.

          What I see is an angry bitch who doesn’t think people are allowed to protest anything. Sounds to me like you have PTSD and need serious help. You have absolutely NO idea what I have experienced in my life and considering your anger I don’t feel inclined to share. YES! ou do come across as a bigot. You show ABSOLUTELY no compassion or understanding. Regardless of what the NFL players were protesting, they ABSOLUTELY have the right to protest. Just like you have the right to be a BITCH. Shame on you.

          • Tiger

            Right bitch people are not allowed to protest when they are paid millions to entertain. Nor are they allowed to protest when they are protesting thugs.

            PTSD oh how nice of you filthy scumbag to accuse a soldier who served with some kind of affliction you don’t even understand. Oh yeah right the things you have experienced can compare with combat right???????????

            NO they don’t have a right to protest on the field and you best take it down the road you total piece of shit shame on me????????????????????????? You don’t know the meaning of shame you obnoxious, loud mouthed whore.

            Where do you get off when did you serve??????????????????? What do you know about anything? You are stupid and beyond disgusting and I spit on you.

          • rebecca

            Well since you don’t know whether I served or not you have ABSOLUTELY no right to judge. you can be as pissed off as you choose to be but that doesn’t make you RIGHT. As for PTSD, I do know what I am talking about. Perhaps you should seek psychiatric help. People have the right to protest; even the NFL players, whatever they choose. You don’t have to like it. Spit all you want. Curse all you want. It just shows a lack of respect and your ignorance. You have no idea what I have experienced but you just keep pretending combat that you’ve experienced is worse than what anyone else can experience. If that is what keeps you happy, have at it. I would say I feel sorry for you but I DON’T. Maybe if you weren’t such a know it all and a bitch.

          • Tiger

            If you served, after reading so many obnoxious posts by you, you most likely got a dishonorable discharge and as undisciplined as you are I can’t imagine you ever served anything but toilet paper when someone out in the outhouse.

            Are you aware that it is in the NFL Rules to stand for the anthem and honor it? See you don’t know squat. They are paying now big time. They have lost millions of fans, season tickets down, they have shit in their helmets and if you were military you know what that means.

            You came at me with fangs glaring and your mouth running non stop, you get it back between your beady eyes and you squeal and start acting like you are something that is special not me, I know who I am, you are full of shit and I don’t like the smell of shit, so fluck off.

            You are about as impressive as a dung beetle and they do more for the good than you do.

    I think there may be some changes soon on this. If the NFL has kneeling players this week, they are doomed to close up shop. They get paid so much money to play any kind of ball. I love college ball and follow some favorites on the NFL but I will not support NFL any longer. If I see college ball do it I am out of there too! I look forward all year to watch a good game, not to bring politics into it. They would have been better off taking their issues to the streets where they came from and helping communities see there is a better life than protest the flag which has nothing to do with their issues!

    We know a few things from this whole thing. There is a portion of the populace who hate this country and take the trouble to express that hate with every breath they draw. They are way too cowardly to pick up stakes and leave. The NFL would not have done this, but were so politically correct that they kowtowed. to a group of people who were dumb enough to think that they were liked even loved enough to matter more to decent people than the American Anthum and Old Glory, symbol of We The People, and those who have fought for her since our beginning.The NFL should have terminated every single player who did this and any coach who condoned it on company time. Want a forum for your discontent ?Hire a hall and sell tickets. The far left are now and have always been liars and spoilers of even the simplest things that majority of people enjoy.

    Where the extensive generic NFL will be most hurt, is in the pocketbook. People will more likely only watch their home team rather than other games. Networks, advertisers, and the teams themselves are already feeling it. Goodell should have come down hard on Kaepernick in the first place. Remember, Goodell is the man who fines players for failing to have their socks pulled up.

From Occupy Wall Street, DACA, BLM, ANTIFA, Hands Up- Don’t shoot, removing flags, tearing down statues and kneeling during the National Anthem are all False Narratives to distract hard working American Citizens who take pride in their work and their sovereign nation. NFL = No Fans Left

          Tasine, thank your hubby for his service and thank you as well! Being a Marine wife is said to be the toughest job in the Corps. Remember though, “Once a Marine, Always a Marine”.

          • Tasine

            Thank you, Dave. Hubby knows you appreciate him. I lost him in 2006 after 42 years of marriage. He was a great husband…….we had a rule: never, ever go to sleep in anger. And we never did. He was my hero. Following his Marine experience, he went into law enforcement and it suited him perfectly. He was a truly wonderful person. I see every one of you Marines in his light.

          • Dave

            Not only is he a hero Marine, but a hero protecting and serving. Now he’s part of God’s Corps, guarding Heaven until we all get there.

        • Ken McDaniel

          I was in the army during Vietnam and my dad was in the navy during the Korean conflict. It makes my blood boil to see such disrespect shown to the symbol of our country and our national anthem!

          • Tasine

            How about that?! I was in the Army Nurse Corps in the early ’60’s. Never was stationed outside the US however. I saw many a man off to war, and to this day don’t know how many of them made it back…..it still bothers me. My partner is a Vietnam “graduate”. My deceased hubby was a Marine. I love my military people dearly.

        • David Estes

          I am a veteran & I stand with ur veteran husband for all the sacrifices the men & women have given to keep this country free. The bad part is that the 1st Amendment also gives these stupid, childish, spoiled, sniveling, disturbed & unpatriotic sub-humanoids the right to be stupid. God bless America & all Patriotic Americans.

          • Tasine

            Thank you for being you and serving our nation. Military people are hard to beat.

            When I read these responses from all the ex-NFL lovers it’s going to make all the NFL lose their nerves week to week this year. Imagine 121 people at a big game in the stadium and the hotels EMPTY! Beer, car
            vacation commercials all down the tubes! that was the short list- add more of your own what will drop!

          • Tasine

            I hope those ex-NFL people stand firm. For those who truly love the game somehow, I’m sure some are having second thoughts. It is what it is and who knows if the NFL will continue being dissed. I hope they lose their sponsors, their advertisers, their donors, their attendees, etc I hope another NFL stadium is never financed again with taxpayer money. I nearly popped my top when I first heard that tax dollars are what provide most stadiums ……..I cannot fathom why that ever got started….except that certain cities are determined to have them in their city……and that’ll work as long as they continue getting the money out of the fans. It’s interesting…..and disgusting that ONE lousy football player created this much dissention within the entire nation.

          • ARTPSYCH

            Sure those stadiums ARE PAID by all of us! I’ve never been a big fan of Corporate football..yet they used my taxes to make a stadium filled with NFL players who have an 8th-grade aptitude and can’t see beyond their own blackness and be patriotic! RIP NFL!

          • Tasine

            I’ve been saying for some years now that our “government” is totally broken and more dangerous than useful to Americans.

            So true, this NWO gang with Evil Clinton’s, Evil Obama and gang, Soros all want to over throw our Country, President to put in their Evil Agenda, Fascist Military Control!! All doing this in secrecy and recruiting more Evil Dems on their side! I call this Treason! Yes, they are all committing Treason!! Law really needs to arrest these Evil people, before they successed in their Evil Plan!

          • Sylvia Avila

            So true, still boycotting them all season, these rich NFL players don’t seem to care about America, or President? Time to STOP! donating to them.

          • songstress350

            I so agree with you all.

            My husband and I now watch college games. I’m just grateful that my favorite team is a college team, but my husband misses his NFL. Sure, it’s a sacrifice.

            But how about the Real sacrifices, like what our men and women in the armed forces, law enforcement and first responders have endured to protect us by jeopardizing their safety, the absences from their families, and their lives. I Truly believe that, beating All odds, President Trump won, in the end, through prayer, and not just because so many of us were sick and tired of business as usual. I believe that, if he lives through it without being assassinated, he, with us as his cemented supporters, could actually bring these evil forces to their knees. I am eternally grateful that our current military and law enforcement personnel Finally have a president who is supporting them. Not to mention the border guards.

            I think the most pitiful thing of all is that the NFL players, owners, coaches, commissioner, and anyone else involved in the franchises are Being Played by Soros, Obama, Clinton, and everyone else who rides on their shirttails. Heck, antifa doesn’t even get it. They foolishly believe that they are making a statement against the “establishment”, “fascism”, “bigotry”, the “homophobics”, the “racists”, and on and on and on. The Reality is, they are being manipulated and controlled Exactly the way it was intended. They spout about “freedoms” without even grasping the Fact that All Of Their Freedoms will be taken away if they remain cohorts in altering our great nation into a Communistic State. Soros, Russia, and the rest of the cohorts in crime are paying protesters to riot while they line the pockets of people who will do Anything for a buck, yet, in the end, all that money won’t mean Squat. They will get slapped in their faces with the realization that they have been Played…the NFL, antifa, BLM, etc., while the elite rule over them. They are Chumps, believing they are righteous, entitled, and victimized, yet strong. They feel powerful and right. They try to oppress us, when, in the end, They shall join the ranks of All who are oppressed. And they can’t even see that they are fighting against a pretty good thing in order to end up wondering where their next meal is coming from, being degraded by the elite class, and everything else that comes with Communism. They are Fools…..and acting Exactly the way Soros wants them to behave. Misguided Fools.

            I thank God Everyday for All men and women who have served in Any capacity to protect our great country and All their families who have sacrificed for the Cause. And I mean Everyone, in Any capacity.

        • Pannos-Miceli Alice

          The second-largest U.S. automaker’s ties to the NFL include the naming rights to Ford Field, the home stadium for the Detroit Lions. The team is owned by Martha Firestone Ford, a member of the company’s founding family, who called Trump’s comments “negative and disrespectful” in a statement Sunday. The F-Series pickup line is the official truck of the NFL. Boycott FORD………

            Make sure you let the Ford dealer know why your not buying there product. Unless of course they give you a fantastic deal. 🙂

          • George2

            I do not understand all these “comments” I read, nor do I understand WHAT these NFL’s are protesting. From the FIRST, I thought they were protesting “slavery” thoughts, and how THEIR generation is denied “opportunities”. And then I looked at THEIR personal INCOMES….and realized it is nothing but baiting for racism. They want to keep people hot under the collar with racism.The don’t want PEACE in America, but promote hate. SHAME ON THEM.

          • Pannos-Miceli Alice

            George, you are exactly correct, they want to promote racism, why, I don’t know. I believe Obama, Hillary and Soros are all involved with race relations. But the more intuitive you are, you don’t believe all their crap. The Network executives are all hiding something from the feds, and this is one of the things that Trump should concentrate on.

      • SNUFFER

        WE IN THE SANDBOX THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT OF THE FIGHTING MEN AND WOMEN OF THE ARMED FORCES OF AMERICA.

        • Richard S.

          I am a retired military veteran with 26 years of service. Do not take me wrong, our men and women of the armed services are our front line of defense, but most americans are serving their country also in the support they give and in times of war the sacrifices they also make. I was 5 years old when the USA got involved in WW2. I remember food rationing, and we were issued stamps governing how much food product and even gasoline that could be purchased. I remember my brothers and other neighbor hood children would pull our little red wagons around our neighborhood and surrounding area collecting scrap metal and other resources to contribute to the war effort. Can you believe even the foil from gum wrappers was collected. So you see the National Anthem means alot to all Americans whether you served in the military or did your part as a civilian. And most people, at least in the small town I grew up in, had Victory gardens whereas we grew alot of our own food and shared with others. And I also remember, but I don’t recall it being mentioned today about our past, but households who had a family member that was in the military serving our country during a time of war, would display a rectangular red, white and blue cloth with a blue star on the center white background. A single star represented one family member serving, two blue stars represented two members serving and so on. I remember some of those banners with five stars. So you see when I see these ungrateful, overpaid individuals taking a knee during the tribute to our country and flag I become blind with rage. You are so dishonorable and don’t deserve the freedoms you enjoy.

            I remember all our mothers going to comfort other mothers who were given the Gold Star flag. It was the focal point of the window facing the street. Before the Sullivan Act it was not strange to see two or three Gold Stars. All those little princesses sitting on the fat arses should find another country. Take the other snoflakes with them. they are totally useless. They are the lowest among us as can be expected of a group in which more than half have criminal records.

          • Richard S.

            Gee Larry I thought I was pretty clear on that, I was not referring to you individually, I was referring to the football players who knelt or interlocked arms during the National Anthem. I’ve been around for 81 years so my perspective probably differs from your point of view. If they aren’t happy at how they are treated, there are planes leaving this country every day for other world destinations and with the millions they are making I’m sure they could or should be able to find someplace else that suits there needs, maybe a small island and they could create a police force that would function to their liking. I think the key thing you probably don’t understand or don’t want to understand, it’s not about Race, it’s about Respect.

          • Larry

            Sorry Richard but your last line sort of befuddled me as I was not clear who the comment was for. Thanks for getting me straight.And Sir thank you for your service to this great nation.

            Trump’s the one at fault here misinterpreting the real reason for the protest. It had nothing to do with disrespecting anything or anyone, it had to do with bringing attention to a blight on our society that needs to be addressed. if we love our country. If he was any kind of a decent human being or a good president, he would have stood with them instead of adding insult to injury like he did. He should apologize then resign.

          • Shelba Herring

            Another Trump hater – no matter what the reason for the protest when he knelt during the playing of the national Anthem he showed disrespect for the flag and the men who served and the men who died, I resented his disrespect because I had three brothers who served in the Army

I would rather have Hillary any day over Dotard. At least she would not be having “fighting words” with North Korea and bringing us to the brink of WWIII”??

            Don’t give me that crappola. President Trump was 100% right about these worthless traitorous thugs. As far as I’m concerned the whole NFL can move to North Korea. They’d be much more comfortable around Kim Jong Un since nearly all of them are communist criminal trash.

            Doggy get your head out of your groin. You have no Idea on what your talking about unless your a Muslim then you don’t even know any slave owners, Cops don’t get up thinking who’s life they plan to ruin and their are no classes on hating anyone at any police academy. Jut maybe if you had a job or education your time would be better managed but to quote the lies you get from TV then spread them like you have any real thoughts of your own, You Sir are just another A Hole Racist and a White Hater go over to MSNBC or CNN and you may find another loser like yourself to share lies with.

            Actually, it started before Trump, idiot. Obozo started this crap or a least allowed it to continue! And Trump will make America great, as he already is.

          • Kathryn Jordan

            BS. Trump will not make America great again. He has broken his promises that he made on the campaign trail. Trump is keeping this country divided and won’t stop. He relies on this base: the white supremacists and neo-natzi. Trump is turning into a dictator.

          • Chauncey

            Hey Kathryn- you are by all counts one of THE dumbest bimbos out there, you no doubt stand tall for the demo-c-RATS and it is nice to know a name on who is the problem here! What scar’s all of us is- you have the right to vote!

You have a racist Dotard of a president who will keep this country divided. HE WILL NEVER UNITE THIS COUNTRY AS LONG AS HE IS PRESIDENT.

            Kathryn, what “promises” that President Trump made on the campaign trail has he broken, especially since he has been president for only 9 months?

          • Kathryn Jordan

            He said he WOULD NOT TOUCH MEDICARE, MEDICAID, OR SOCIAL SECURITY. Woops. He WANTS to SLASH every one of these. I LIVE on my social security disability (I PAID into Social Security while I was working) and I have Medicare. I don’t want Dotard doing anything that will slash that.

            He hasn’t made America great and won’t make America great. He has broken every campaign promise which makes me so angry. I am so sure that Lincoln would be embarrassed about how his Party have become; it is NO LONGER the Lincoln Party.

          • gingergirl

            Oh, stop, WatchDoggy – these players are most certainly disrespecting the flag, our anthem, our country, our veterans and their fans! How else could you take it? Trump, like so many others, LOVES this country, and when we see someone “spitting” on our flag, well then, yeah, we will take offense! There has been a lot of sacrifice in the name of that flag! That flag represents our freedom, defended by so many. Those players probably don’t even know WHY they are kneeling – just thought it would be cool to do, so like a sheep, they followed. Pampered, rich, spoiled, ungrateful, un-American idiots – every one of them who “takes a knee”. Bet they wouldn’t “take a knee” for God! Just remember. . . Karma. What goes around, comes around.

          • gingergirl

            “. . .he would have stood with them instead of adding insult to injury like he did. He should apologize then resign.” YOU obviously have never served in the military and have no understanding of what this country (our flag) represents. So until YOU have something invested in this country, STFU – you don’t know what you are talking about. Those players are the ones that need to get on their knees – they have enough practice with that – and apologize to every patriotic American. If you can’t understand that, I feel sorry for you. You sound like an empty, lost soul. You just don’t get it, and probably never will.

          • Mario Ruffino

            Watch Doggy, How can Hillary beat Trump with over 300 Million votes when there are only 350 Million people in the USA. Votes from dead people and illegals are not valid and do not count.

          • Firewagon

            Me thimks he was a mite cornfused over the number and added zeroes not required? Gotta love the claim of ‘winning the popular vote’ by three (3) million votes. The ‘Criminal’ won CA alone by that many, and NY by close to or more than another million! All that means is, THANK GOD FOR THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE, or we could all just let CA and NY vote! In other words, the “criminal” LOST every where else in America!

            What planet do you live on? The utter disrespect displayed by these spoiled NFL brats got what they deserved and the President bless his heart stood tall for our flag, our military and our soldiers who gave their all for Old Glory! Blight in our society, how would they know with their opulent lifestyles and multi-million dollar contracts! As a Viet Nam veteran I salute the flag whenever it’s displayed respecting all my brothers who paid the ultimate price for their service! You should be ashamed of yourself, the insult and the injury was in full display to millions of Americans who are now abandoning the NFL. My NAVY SEAL son in law and his team are livid over the total disrespect displayed by these overpaid unappreciated spoiled morons! This display is nothing but an overt act of treason disrespecting the millions who left it all on the battlefield! You sir, are a disgrace and you should resign from the human race! Your not a decent human being, you exemplify insult to injury with your disrespect for our duly elected President who is making America great again! Oh, one other thing, our military across the board has great respect for President Trump and the efforts he has put forth lifting them up and thanking them every chance he gets for their sacrifice!

          • Richard S.

            Larry after re-reading my post, I can understand why you may have thought my comments were referring to you since my comment was in “reply ” on your post. I apoligize for that and sorry I may have upset you. I liked your post and just thought that I was affirming that with my comments. Thank you for pointing that out to me as I have learned a lesson in being more careful with my thoughts. Have a good day Larry.

          • NC

            Well said, I applaud you, and thank you for your service, sir!! We stand for my flag and anthem, hand over heart! Both my parents and many relatives served. We proudly stand as Old Glory passes by, and tears of pride still fill my eyes at the sight of the Stars and Stripes flying high!

          • Janelle

            Bless your heart, Richard, for your service to our country and the sentiments you expressed in this post!

          • bytheway4

            Richard, I was in school at the time and I remember seeing gold stars in the window of a lot of homes. Boys leaving school to join the service, we had blackouts also. We saluted the flag everyday before we started classes. they sold war bonds at the schools, so much more

          • Kathryn Jordan

            I don’t remember when I stopped saying the pledge in school. I know I said the pledge from first grade to fifth grade (until December 1977 when I moved out to Bangkok, Thailand). When I returned to California 38 years ago, we never said the pledge from seventh grade to my senior year in high school. I feel bad that that schools do not say the pledge now. Our children need to know the pledge. Due to vertigo, I have to sit when the national anthem is being played; I at least put my hand across my heart.

          • Turn9

            You saluted the flag? You probably recited the Pledge also. Gee, that must have scarred you to have to go through all of that??!! (Ha!) You know, people do precious little to thank the USA for all the privilege we receive for having been born here. People cross borders illegally and raft across shark infested oceans just to get here and all we ask is that everyone stand and place a hand over your heart when the national anthem is being played. That little sentiment doesn’t cost anyone anything, but it seems to be more than some can do so they can express some unknown problem. IMO they should go to Mexico or Panama or Costa Rica and try to make a living, raise a family, and protest their govt and also live their life if they cannot do something so little as to stand and salute when the National Anthem is being played. We certainly don’t need you here. Real Americans show respect for that which men have bled and died defending.

          • Carl Small th

            Thank you for your service and sacrifices for country and freedom. My father, who just past away in Jan, served in the Pacific and Atlantic during WWII. He seldom talked about the war, but instilled in me a profound love of country, appreciation for life and thankfulness for our good fortunes, whatever they may be.

            What he did comment often about in recent years, was the ignorance facing our culture and society today. The ignorance of history, our history, and absence of unfettered unbiased leadership to drive our country and world into the future. He often said “I haven’t been more worried for our future since the war.

            He was a very kind and generous man who rarely spoke an unkind word, and who thought nothing of befriending total strangers. The world is a poorer place without him, as it is without all of our absent and brave Patriots who were so full of life, but sacrificed everything for the freedoms we share.

          • pudge1

            This is the fault of our ed. system. These documentaries on Vietnam and the two World Wars, plus Korea must be taught but does not fit liberal agendas,

          • Turn9

            IMO that lack of historical knowledge comes from the liberal dominance in the teachers, the teachers union and in those who write the books. They have changed our history to be that which they want it to be. One popular US History book was written by a anti-American Marxist (look up Howard Zinn). I doubt the author went out of his way to talk about the contributions of Washington or Jefferson! Many things kids studied in extreme detail years ago are glossed over or ignored completely in recent history books. But we don’t hear about it because of the liberal dominance in the media industry. They only share what they want us to know. I agree with your father about the important the knowledge of history is!

            Amen, brother! I emulate your statement, “I become blind with rage.” This 75-year-old World War II baby also am blind with rage at all of those stupid, traitorous, un-American, anti-American fartball players who cannot do anything but chase a stupid ball around the field and beat up on each other. What a wasted sport. Abolish fartball and force these spoiled brats to go get real jobs. Idiots!

            Additionally, I am incensed that those idiots on the Pitsbug Stealers (Robbers) made a mockery of one of our Veteran brothers, i.e., Alejandro Villanueva. That lousy coach got on Villanueva for doing the right thing. If the rest of the idiotic Pitsbug Stealers had come out of the tunnel to stand next to Villanueva, the Pittsburgh Steelers would be heroes today. Instead, they are nothing but a bunch of fools. The rest of the team and stupid coach are all bigots and racists for picking on a National Hero Alejandro Villanueva who is the only good one of the bunch. I hope the Pitsbug Stealers have a losing season this year!

            I believe the Democrat party stole both elections that got the usurper into office through massive voter fraud!

I call that the self-entitlement program on her part. she still melts down when she just has to poke her fat as into all that goes on. The silencer opinion was just another misguided liberal yakking point that made no sense! There are no present or possibly conceived new laws that could ‘ve prevented the Las Vegas shooting spree.

The current condition of our country reminds me of Ronald Reagan’s warning about “freedom is only one generation from extinction.” The few remaining members of “The Greatest Generation” must be wondering what the hell happened to the country I fought for ? If showing contempt for the Flag becomes socially acceptable the where will the patriots be to protect it ?

          • William Glass

            Indeed. They are truly “The Greatest Generation”. I remember when I was a kid and we would ask our fathers what they did in the war. Almost to a man the response was “I did my job.” What was that job? ……. Saving this nation ! For them (and all who have served and made the ultimate sacrifice) I will always stand and place my hand over my heart and remember that my freedom was paid for by someone better than me whom I don’t even know.

          • Kathryn Jordan

            My grandfather, on my father’s side, was in WWII. He commanded submarine tenders so his offices were not damaged at Pearl Harbor when it bombed. I learned quite a lot from him (always teased him telling my grandfather he should have taught history at Ohio State University after his last tour of duty). Through out my school years, I was taught to respect the flag and remember my freedoms that people paid with their lives when they went to war; people I didn’t know. When the United States was fighting Desert Storm, I wrote to our troops in Iraq.

          • NRApatriot

            Thank you for your service Richard! Us true patriots appreciate what our service members do for our nation! During WW2 my grandfather was such a well respected man in our county that he was put in charge of the rationing program here. He had five sons that fought in that war and thankfully they all made it home. My father, the youngest of his sons was a decorated combat veteran of the Korean war. That war and the battle of the Chosin Reservoir in particular made him into a raging alcoholic and the only times he ever talked about it was when he was drinking. His descriptions of that battle and how the communist Chinese just kept coming at them in waves would make the hair on your neck stand up! His description of them getting so close they had to resort to hand to hand combat and trying to pull his bayonet out of a Chinese soldiers sternum as bullets whizzed past his head gave me nightmares! It enrages me to see anyone disrespect our nations flag let alone a bunch of overpaid pu$$ies who live better than most thanks to those who served, fought and paid the ultimate sacrifice and made a way for them to do so!!!

        What the hell does that have to do with watching a game? It was a nonviolent protest. That’s all it was. Get over it. It’s only political if you allow it to be. Are you really that ignorant?

          People are entitled to their views – but, NOT WHILE ON THE JOB. Yes, they are “at work”; and earning more than most of us will in a lifetime. Where I worked, politics were out, “do it” on your own time.

          • rebecca

            Really? I don’t have to shut up. I did not vote for Hillary Clinton either. WHY do you have to make football political? Because Trump says so? As old as you are I would hope that you have learned something worthwhile in your lifetime. Mainly that if we don’t learn from it. HISTORY repeats itself. I suppose that’s too much to hope for with people like you. That’s just really sad.

    • SNUFFER

      i really did like my football – being in a part of the world where we either slept alot or had some football to watch waiting for the next mission. we enjoyed having a couple of bruskies and having some down time to calm down and regroup. it was good therapy for the adrenaline level we keep on a constant everyday level. it was a good time from home! but it has reached to the other side of the globe- with the football players acting like aholes. we are here giving them the right to do this stupid shitz. we are allowing them to make millions and we are making 40,000 a year getting our asses shot at and off. when i return i will find another pass time for my family weekends. NO MORE NFL OR ANY SPORT THAT DISRESPECTS OUR FLAG AND ANTHEM. WE WERE AN NFL FAMILY- WITH THE JERSEYS AND JACKETS FLAGS ETC. I HAVE TOLD MY WIFE TO SELL OUT ALL THE NFL TEAM ARTICLES AND TO CALL DIRECTV AND HAVE THEM REFUND OUR SEASON SATELLITE PROGRAMMING . I CAN USE THE $300 BUCKS TO GET INTO ANOTHER SPORT FOR THE FAMILY THAT RESPECTS THE COUNTRY FLAG AND NATIONAL ANTHEM. I WAS ON THE FENCE SINCE ABOUT 83% OF THE NFL IS BLACK- I WAS WAITING FOR SOMETHING LIKE THIS TO HAPPEN BECAUSE OF ALL THE OTHER BS THE BLACKS ARE DOING AGAINST MY COUNTRY. THE BLACK GUYS IN MY PLATOON ARE TOTALLY ASHAMED OF THEIR 2.5 MILLION DOLLAR BROTHERS. AND WE ARE GETTING $0,000 IF WE ARE LUCKY. GIVE ME A CHANCE TO PLAY A GAME AND LET ME MAKE 2.5 MILLION A YEAR AND YOU CAN BET YOUR SWEET ASS I WILL STAND FOR THE FLAG AND ANTHEM EVEN IF I WERE PLAYING FOR FREE. FOR ME, THERE ARE NOTHING BUT A BUNCH OF POMPOUS ASSHOLEZ THAT THINK THE COUNTRY OWES THEM SOMETHING! I HAD NO USE FOR THEIR NFL OR THE OVER PAID ASSEZ FROM NOW FORWARD. I’M GOING OVER TO NASCAR WHICH STOOD UP FOR THE FLAG AND ANTHEM.
      IF THE NFL REDONE THEIR THINKING OF THE ISSUE- I WOULD NOT RESUME WATCHING OF THEIR SORRY ASS NFL GAMES. IF I WATCH ANY FOOTBALL AGAIN- IT WILL BE COLLEGE BALL. NO MORE NFL FOR ME- I’M DONE- AND I KNOW 59 MORE PATRIOTS SITTING HERE THAT ARE TOO!!

        Right. Blame it on the black players. The last time I checked Jerry Jones, the Cowboy’s owner was on his knees. And the last time I looked he was lily-white. But of course, like through all of history it is the fault of the black race. By the way, that’s sarcasm, if you’re too stupid to figure it out. Another little tidbit, I am white.

      • nocbsfan

        Oh I am always in the wrong place, BTW I like your football team

        • Tasine

          Good morning, nocbsfan. I didn’t see you all day yesterday. Hope nothing was wrong. Hope you and family were well and not sick.

          • nocbsfan

            If I could stay away from Doctors I would be just fine, How is your guy, did you get his PSA down. I don’t know why we didn’t cross I was replying a lot yesterday. Hope you are okay so good to see a smile on your face again.

          • Tasine

            LOL. I know what you mean, but unfortunately, many of us spend time in doctors’ offices so that we can live here on earth longer with loved ones (and unfortunately with the dregs of society and civilization).

            My guy thinks he is doing pretty well. His PSA had risen 3 points from 6 months ago,but the doctor does not seem too concerned. I suspect that at Ron’s age and that since most prostate cancers (if that is the problem) are slow growing cancers, the doctor figures Ron will eventually die, but not of cancer. I’ve heard that many men who die and are biopsied, are found to have prostate cancer they never knew they had, but died of other causes. He has dropped some weight, but so have I, and I figure our eating is the cause. We are not “dieting”, but when I had shingles, I lost my appetite, and I’ve not truly regained it – nor do I want to regain it!. Ron has never been a big eater. We shall see what we see. In the meantime life goes on.

            I’m having a ball, playing piano for the church. I LOVE doing it, and I am already finding my niche and am voicing my opinions re issues that arise, and am being as polite and professional as i know how to be. One of the women is planning to do a special song this coming Sunday and she and I went over it yesterday and she asked my opinion on a lot of things re HOW this and that re the song should be done. I merely told her it is HER solo, not mine, that SHE sings and I merely accompany, to do it as SHE sees fit. I did give a suggestion or two, but certainly refrained from using the terms “you should”, or “I suggest”. I see great things happening there that excite me. It is a small church that I honestly believe shows more sincerety than most churches I have been a part of. Amazing.

            This is not a letter writing site, so will shut up. Have a grand day, nocbsfan!

            😌😌🌼🌸

          • nocbsfan

            Well my little lady, I am proud of you, and some Sunday I am going to sneak up on you and watch all this. Your little soloist has a lot of respect for your playing and values your input. I think you did the right thing. As far as I know you are a sweet and kind person, one of the reasons I have always thought so much of you, and will continue to do so. LOL I guess we sometimes take up a lot of space on these boards. Be happy !

          • Tasine

            YOU be happy, too, nocbsfan, because you are a super nice person that all people should value.

    • rebecca

      What the fuck are you talking about? It was a nonviolent protest. That’s it. Get a grip. There are more important issues to be concerned about in America than whether or not someone kneels during the national anthem. Like how the fuck did this great country get stuck with someone like Trump for a president? The national anthem is a symbol. Respect it or don’t. I happen to respect it but I am NOT GOING to make it more important than it is when there are so many other more important issues to worry about.

      • Janelle

        You approve of their behavior and how/where they exhibited their protest?

        Because we had 8 years of your destructive Muslim, gay Barry.Would you like a fact about your country killer Barry, and his wife, the tranny?
        Here’s one. We have the final nail in the coffin of President Obama’s economic reign. Not only is the average annual growth rate of just 1.48% during Obama’s business cycle theweakest of any expansion since at least 1949, he has just become the only President to have not had even one year of 3% GDP growth.

        An average annual GDP growth of 1.48% during Obama’s two terms…
        Here was the debt when your Muslim started- $10,626,877,048,913.08
        The debt the day he left-$18,722,746,583,118.03
        What makes that interesting is, there was absolutely nothing to show for it!

        To help you understand how the f**k this great country got stuck with Trump, it’s called votes. You to can exercise your right to change that in 2020 providing you meet all the requirements for voting in the USA. I hope this brief explanation helps you understand how the process works. Also are you implying by your statement that if they were violent they would achieve more positive results?

      • usmc12

        your language skills are lacking for a woman

      • Pannos-Miceli Alice

        60 million people voted for Trump. We can all agree to disagree, without the foul language.

        • rebecca

          We could. But why would we? Trump is an ass. He refuses to focus on the important issues that effect our country. I could say please Mr. President, just do your job; but how effective do you think that would be? He is vulgar, disrespectful, and a bigot. He, thus far, is the worst president ever in my lifetime. So we can disagree? Absolutely.

          • Pannos-Miceli Alice

            Why is Trump an ass, and what important issues isn’t he focusing on? He has only been is office for 9 months, and all the major networks are not telling the truth, it is because they are afraid the feds will investigate all the top executives who are involved in pizzagate. Why do you say he is a bigot? You are just throwing words around without any proof or backup. I think he is the best President we have ever had, so far.

          • rebecca

            Are you serious or just hiding your head in the sand? He’s disrespectful to women. He does not know what he is doing with foreign policy. he has no military experience and keeps firing everyone. With respect to Korea. he draws a line in the sand and dares that insane dictator to cross it. Then he draws another line in the sand and says betcha won’t cross this one. He is going to incite a war. If Trump is truly a worthy leader, then he should do what he says and stop playing games. Now, let’s go to building a border wall and AFTA. What? Like the Berlin Wall? Who does he think he is? America is the land of the free. Trump doesn’t get to choose who is worthy to be an American. Those are just a few of the reasons he is an ass and the worst president in my lifetime.

      Here are the NFL’s rules governing the National Anthem, found on pages A62-63 of the NFL Game Operations Manual :

      “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem.

      During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.”

    • SILENTHAMMER

      And we MUST teach our CHILDREN about this. They are vulnerable, and we CAN NOT leave them without the TRUTH.

    • Kathryn Jordan

      In case you forgot your “history”, it was the 13 Colonies who FOUGHT the England to GAIN their freedom. The National Anthem was written during the War of 1812. You sure don’t know your history. Did you fight in President Washington’s army during the Revolutionary War? No you didn’t. Did you fight during the War of 1812? No you didn’t. Each new star for a new state is added on July 4th on a certain year. I am glad you take pride in your work for the United States. When I was working, I took pride in working for a retail company. I am unable to work for medical reasons. You don’t understand the reasons why a particular NFL player takes to the knee during the National Anthem just like I don’t know. All I know it is there Constitutional right of free speech. If you don’t like, move.

    • Kathryn Jordan

      Hey lamebrain, do you know your history? It was the 13 colonies that fought the British so we could gain our freedom. The National Anthem was written during the war of 1812. These players have their Constitutional right to free speech. If you don’t like the fact that is a movement called “Black Lives Matter” you should move. It really should be “All lives matter”. Occupy Wall Street was both black and white alike. I am so sorry that you feel that way.

      What did you say – ‘Social media has been alive with anger towards the protests and the league? I believe the far right social media are the ones that have been angry with NFL and the players. But these right wing people are hypocrites. Remember the following social media were daily attacking President Obama and his polices: Patriot News Daily.com.; Right Wing Voice; Fix The Nation, Patriot Viral News; American Liberty Report; TEA Party; Front Page Report; Conservative Free Press; Restore American Glory; From Right; Conservative Zone; Right-Wise. These were cursing and lashing expletives why Blacks were renting the WH-and for 8 years. Thank God, these fake right-wing media are now dying a happy death. I have dug a hole in my back yard to burry them. They cannot attack Trump. They are afraid he will call them names or fakes.

    • Drberlat

      I couldn’t agree more, our flag is the symbol of American greatness that so many of us, being veterans like myself salute every chance we get! We lost so many brave young men in combat, heroes the lot of them who have my undying respect for their sacrifice and to my memory of those brothers I served with in NAM who gave the ultimate sacrifice, I will never forget them and never disrespect them by not standing tall and saluting our great flag! These so called football players are a disgrace to our nation and all we hold dear to the gifts America has given us, blessed to live in this one nation under GOD! My family served during WW2, Korea and Viet Nam answering the call to duty! We put up with an utter fraud in chief who called the muslim afternoon call to prayer the most beautiful sound in the world……….WHAT! To real Americans it is the Star Spangled Banner, thank you! I will never again support the NFL and will not even eat at a restaurant who broadcasts their game on TV! To show how despicable these spoiled losers are, there was a picture of a lemming kneeling next to the tomb of the Unknown Soldier! My family has served our nation in every military unit from Army, to Marines, to Air Force, to Navy including Navy Seals! My service was in the Army drafted in 1965 honorably discharged in 1971 and would serve again if called! America doesn’t owe these spoiled cupcakes who dishonor our flag anything and above all else our respect! Freedom of speech is one thing, using that freedom to disrespect our flag and thus our nation violates a sacred code of honor! If I sound angry I am, as I lost brothers in arms including those before my time when 10,000 Marines made the ultimate sacrifice to plant Old Glory on a mountain top on IWO JIMA, day I celebrate every year for personal reasons!

    NO MORE FOOTBALL. The National Anthem has nothing to do with politics, they should remember those who gave their lives so they could play football, so they could stand freely and even listen to the National Anthem. when they do not stand they are shitting right down the shirt collars of every American Soldier that has ever fought for freedom, not to mention those that paid the ultimate price for freedom. SO SCREW THE NFL and any other organization that takes this approach to protesting a President. Childish Stupidity is what the NFL is Showing

    WE THE PEOPLE WILL NOT STAND FOR ANYONE DISRESPECTING OUR COUNTRY, FLAG OR NATIONAL ANTHEM. We will join forces to make the NFL, ALL players and their owners rue the day they started this protest. Although we lost sons, fathers and husbands to protect their right to protest. CONSEQUENCES WILL FOLLOW. We will hit these greedy players, their coaches and owners of teams that allow such DISRESPECTFUL BEHAVIOR NO MATTER HOW ENTITLED. WE WILL HIT THEM WERE IT WILL DO THE MOST GOOD. IN THEIR GREEDY POCKETS. We will unite, we will NOT buy products that advertise on their programs. Advertisers will feel the crunch and withdraw their ads and their will be NO MONDAY NIGHTS AND NO SUPPER BOWLXXXXXXXXXXWHATEVER. YOU WILL REGRET YOU EVER STARTED THIS DEMONSTRATION.

    i am a huge fan of NFL but this bullshit has caused for me to turn and watch other show not football

  • Robert Uda

    Like the initial piece that I had seen by Jerry Jones (owner, president, general manager of the Dallas Cowboys), I was highly impressed with what Clark Hunt (CEO and owner of the Kansas City Chiefs) had said. I thought that it was about time someone had the guts to take a stand on this respect for the flag matter. I further thought, “Wow, I may have a new favorite NFL team! How is that for leadership? Here’s is what Clark Hunt said until I found out that it was also fake news.
    ______________________________________________________

    Mr. Hunt called a meeting with all of his coaches, players, and field staff and firmly told them:

    “You are all simply paid performers on a stage and that field is my stage! You will stand with your hand over your heart and with respect when our Country’s National Anthem is being played, or you will no longer be a Kansas City Chief, a coach for the Kansas City Chiefs, or have any association with the Chiefs organization! I will immediately fire you no matter who you are! You can make your political statements off the field, but when you’re employed by me, and I’m signing your check, I demand that you make our fans proud and not embarrass them.”
    _____________________________________________________

    Then, I saw the photos about the Kansas City Chiefs and was disappointed and depressed as I was over the antics of the pseudo-America’s Football Team—the Dallas Cowboys. They all make me sick to my stomach!

    Now, for shame, I am totally upset with Clark Hunt, who I thought was a real patriot and man of conviction. No more! He is just like Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys. When are these rich owners and leaders going to show a bit more patriotic behavior? This issue is not about freedom of speech, and it is not about racism. It is about displaying respect for the flag, respect for our country, and respect for the national anthem when someone sings it at football games. It is about honoring and respecting our warfighters, our veterans, our fallen soldiers, and our military heroes who have come home with missing limbs.

    These rich, spoiled football brats are disrespectful of our nation and everything for which it stands. They play their stupid game and do not realize that they can do that and make big bucks only because of the sacrifices (some ultimate) by our military men and women who protect our liberty, freedoms, safety, and security. Hence, I say, professional sports figures should either shape up or ship out. The fans will do it for you by boycotting your silly games.

    I was so impressed with Jerry Jones (Owner, President, and General Manager of the Dallas Cowboys) when I saw the below piece. However, then, I found it was fake news. When I saw Jerry Jones on television kneeling with linked arms with his bratty, high-paid kids, I knew for sure that it was fake news. However, it sounded good. To wit,
    _____________________________________________________

    Jerry Jones went into the locker room before the Cowboys Giants game Sunday. He looked around at all the young men and addressed them as a group. “Regardless of your personal opinions, this is a sacred day that we recognize the sacrifice and pain that so many have endured. When the National Anthem is played by a lone trumpet player in a few minutes you WILL stand and you WILL put your hand over your hearts.”

    Jerry waited a second and made eye contact with several players to make sure his words had sunk in. He knew he had their undivided attention and proceeded. “You gentlemen are world class athletes, but you are also actors. You perform on a stage that is 100 yards long.

    Today, you play the role of a patriotic super hero. You will play this role well because you know that millions of children will be watching and looking at your example.” Then his inner fire started to shine through as he said quietly “but most of all I want you to remember, you are the actors, but this is MY stage and you will play the role I tell you to.”
    _____________________________________________________

    When I first read that, I was so impressed with Jerry Jones. However, now that I found out that Jerry is just another rich football team owner, I am disgusted with him. I hope he has a losing season and go broke for disrespecting all of our fallen warfighters and those who came home with missing limbs. They also disrespected the American Flag, the National Anthem, and our Nation. He and all his people should apologize for not acting like the above fake piece. He needs to restore our faith in him and the Dallas Cowboys. From a fellow Texan who is very disappointed in the supposed “America’s Football Team.”

    The latest report is that President Trump called Jerry Jones to find out why his good friend pulled the stunt that he and his team did. Jerry told Trump that they had done the kneeling prior to the national anthem and stood holding arms during the national anthem. What a cop out! President Trump bought the excuse, and so they are in good with each other. However, I do not buy it. They must do much more than that for me to regain my trust in the Dallas Cowboys. It goes that way in the Big City. Hey, Jerry, how about donating $50 million to the Wounded Warrior Foundation to make your amends? You disgraced yourself!

    Professional Football is a Joke

    I would like to see the NFL abolished or unfunded so they go bankrupt. The federal government subsidizes building all of those huge, expensive football stadiums and coliseums. Two senators are introducing a bill in Congress to withdraw all funding of building new stadiums. That is a good move to make the NFL go broke.

    Commissioner Roger Goodell is much overpaid making $50 million a year. What a rip-off! He is not worth $1 million a year! Goodell is incompetent; thus, the owners’ committee should fire him for inciting his spoiled, rich football brats to inject politics into sporting games. What a bunch of losers!

    Pro-sportsmen are a poor example for our children and grandchildren. I say boycott all of the professional sports! I do not watch any sports any longer. I stopped watching and going to games three decades ago. I hope more people will wise up and stop the terrible sportsman examples they are to our posterity.

    Get rid of football. It is a stupid sport where they run around with this stupid ball and beat up on each other. That is like terrorism. Kill the sport. Too many quarterbacks and running backs sustain brain injuries because of the constant pounding to their heads.

    You must be stupid to do that just for a few million bucks per year and end up the rest of your life like Muhammad Ali, OJ Simpson, and all of those young professional wrestlers dying from injuries, killing others, or committing suicide at a young age. It is not worth it. Congress should outlaw football and basketball!

    If those idiots keep it up, you are beginning to see the death of professional football and basketball. Get rid of the NFL and NBA unless they learn how to act right and fly straight like those in NASCAR (with the exception of dolt Dale Earnhardt, Jr.), AL/NL, PGA, NHL, WRA, et al. We have nothing but riffraff in the NFL and NBA. Get rid of those sports and force those spoiled brats to go get real jobs that require an education to think on their own instead of being dumb jocks who receive too much compensation for doing stupid things.

    The sad thing about all this is that the rest of the Pittsburgh Steelers team and their lousy coach got on Alejandro Villanueva and made him feel so bad that he apologized on national TV for doing what he did. He said he made all the others look bad. I believe that they turned things around and have it backwards. The coach and rest of the team should apologize to Villanueva, who was the only patriotic, loyal one to the flag, the national anthem, and to the nation.

    The rest of them were cowards. They are trying to make the good person as the bad person. That’s what happens when you deal with a team and coaches of losers. If they all would have come out and did the same as Villanueva, the entire team and coaching staff would be heroes today, smelling like a rose, and praised by the media. It is very sad what they did to poor Villanueva. They are all a bunch of real cowards and losers. They will have a losing season for their awfulness.

  • Jim Hays

    I just found out how exciting NASCAR is Their boss told them if they disrespected the flag, they would be going home in a greyhound.

  • Jr1776

    Take a knee, turn off TV

  • If the NFL soured me a fan since I was 7 yrs old, you did a heeluva job getting me to this point.
    I’ve been watching NFL for 53 yrs and now it’s over.
    I watch rich black athletes disrespect my country and the sacrifices many have made including me so they can have their freedom and wealth.
    They keep beating this drum that they are not going to win.
    This oppression dispute is a farce and more on the individuals itself and not society.
    Families in black America ate broken because of irresponsibility on themselves.
    White America didn’t put a machine gun in their hands to do damage that will land them in jail, they did it to themselves.
    Tell these rich black athletes to just shut their faces about oppression and go into these neighborhoods and educate them on responsibility.
    Again….you don t change 87% of America so 13% can get it right.
    If you don’t get real and call it like it is this will never change.
    No more NFL and NBA for me and many others in the states.
    Apologize black America for the constant blame game and disrespecting our flag and our country.
    I won’t hold my breath and neither should they for me to watch another game.
    Your loss!!

  • EJB

    I have been upset with the NFL, ever since that they insisted that the mentally disturbed transvestites should be allowed in the bathroom of their choice. Men should not be allowed in with little girls.

    • Robert Uda

      What about when female reporters insisted that they be allowed into the locker room after the game? They didn’t like it too much when the nude players coming out of the shower displayed to them their jewels.

  • CBUJAN

    I hope the NFL feels the strain of empty pockets.

  • James Farnsworth

    I was to young for World War Two but enlisted to serve in the Korean War in the USAF with an eight year commitment . I served wit men that survived the Bataan death march they like I am would,and am appalled at these so called deadhead hero’s of the NFL players and owners ! They don’t even begin to know heroism , go put on a back pack that has everything you own , pack a rifle March across the desert in the Middle East where the sun beats down at 120 degrees in day time at night you get cold , yes I’ve been there I know the feeling shut your mouth act like a true American !

  • Dale P Patterson

    The NFL is letting the players kill it. Unless the owners put the brakes on these protests soon the players will succeed.

  • rk

    They try to play the racist card as so many do. Why aren’t they trying to stop all the black on black murders ? Instead cops are pigs and they blame cops.When kaepneck started this he also told the world his fiance is a muslim. Could this be the real reason he got this started ? I won’t watch NFL play and I think every American to protest the fact the government spends millions and billions of dollars of tax payers money on the stadiums. I believe they are way over paid in the firs place. This should have been Obama’s problem not President Trumps/ Why didn’t they pull this crap while Obama was president. Hmmm ! are they tied in with the Liberals ? Is this just another trick of the Democrats against President Trump ?

    • Robert Uda

      Yes it is to your last question.

  • Kathryn Jordan

    NO one should be denied their CONSTITUTIONAL right to free speech. This is a form of FREE SPEECH. When the taking the knee to the anthem began, it was to bring to the attention the treatment of people of color by white police officers. I respect these people taking the knee during the anthem. Politics should not have been injected into this by the President; he forgets about the 1st Amendment. The Pittsburgh Steelers have decided to remain in the locker room during the anthem. It will be interesting to see what the other NFL teams will do. What is the President going to do to disabled fans, who go to these games, and cannot stand for the anthem? Is he going to call them out?

    • Robert Uda

      President Trump never, ever said anything about the First Amendment and Freedom of Speech. He neither said anything about racism. The only thing he talked about was showing respect for the American flag, the National Anthem, our nation, and our warfighters. He said nothing about free speech or race. It is the dishonest media/press and the Lib-Dems who are trying to put another narrative into President Trump’s mouth. So, I would greatly appreciate it if you don’t keep parroting talking points of the dishonest media/press and corrupt Lib-Dems. Your accusation that Trump brought politics into this issue is distorting the facts. You are way out-of-line, lady. Your talk about disabled fans are rather disgusting. Are you a Lib-Dem?

      • Kathryn Jordan

        This was an issue that he did not have to focus on as though it were of importance. He seems to forget that the people of Puerto Rico should have been at the utmost importance rather than NFL player taking to the knee during the national anthem. I am sure that those who do take to the knee, do remember our military. I will say what comes into my mind. Sorry you found my remark about disabled fans disgusting. Yes, I am a Democrat. I am not way out-of-line. so sorry if you can’t deal with a difference of opinion. This is what keeps this nation divided; people won’t accept a difference of opinion without saying ” okay, I understand that is how you feel, but I don’t agree with you” in a polite way. There is no discussion of why we don’t agree or disagree on certain things.

        • Robert Uda

          Okay, I understand that is how you feel, but I don’t agree with you” as wrong as you may be.

    The military should withdraw from participating at the games. They should also demand a refund on the 5/6 million they paid the NFL to “advertise”. In addition the NFL should be removed from TAX EXEMPT status. They are a for profit organization and should pay Taxes.

  • Deplorable Irredeemable Susan

    If they cannot even stand for OUR national anthem/flag salute, they should be too
    “weak kneed” to play a strenuous sport. Better sit these games out permanently!!
    Until you all regain your “national” strength, quit playing. Remove the name too.
    Join the Antifa league, or the Anarchist league. You do NOT deserve the name
    of the “National” football league. Also quit broadcasting Nationally! Get your own
    puny tv station and broadcast locally only. Your silly games do not deserve
    “National” coverage, since you do not want to be a part of the USA. United
    States is not part of your belief system. WE THE PEOPLE should burn the
    BLM/ANTIFA banners/flags and see how fast they condemn US!!

    Professional Sports Disrespect the Flag
    By Dr. Bob Uda

    [Photos go here]

    Let us put this issue in perspective. When I were on active duty in the United States Air Force (USAF), if I were to pull such a stunt on the job as these athletes do, I would probably be slapped with an Article 15 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). Sitting or kneeling when they play the National Anthem and the American flag goes by, I must salute it. I want to salute it. If I willfully disobey and show disrespect for the American flag, I would suffer the consequences. Additionally, when I worked in the Aerospace and Defense Industries, if I were to pull stunts that were disrespectful to the American flag, the management would probably reprimand and punish me in some way.

    Now, these athletes are on the job to perform before large audiences. Why do they have a different standard than most other Americans? When I go to a sporting event and they play the National Anthem, I stand and place my right hand over my heart. It is just showing simple respect for the flag and for our nation. Additionally, it is simply showing respect for all the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice or lost limbs during wars while protecting our rights, liberty, and freedom.

    What it all boils down to is that when the leaders, e.g., National Football League (NFL) Commissioner Roger Goodell, team owners, and coaches support such display of disrespect, it is no wonder the players will keep doing it! Now, even little league football players (little kids) sit down during the playing of the National Anthem and raising of the American flag. What a disgusting bunch of spoiled brats and irresponsible parents, coaches, and owners. This is why our society is so screwy these days. I just hope people will stop attending these jokes of sporting events—sort of like the Oscars, Emmys, etc. Everything has gone political and downhill.

    [Photos go here]

    Naperville, Wisconsin, Central High School football team praying before a game.

    Professional athletes provide a poor example for our children and grandchildren. I say boycott all professional sports! I do not watch any sports any longer. I stopped watching and going to games three decades ago. I hope more people will wise up and stop the terrible sportsman examples they are to our posterity. Is it not ironic that when pro footballers kneel during the National Anthem, the liberal media praise them? However, when high school football players kneel to pray during a game to ask God to minimize injuries, the liberal media chastise them, and the school administration fires the coach. Do you remember when pro-Quarterback Tim Tibow went to his knee to pray and the blast he received from the dishonest press? Something is very wrong in America.

    [Photos go here]

    Bremerton (Washington) High School football coach, Joe Kennedy, was fired for praying after the game. Pro-Quarterback Tim Tibow was denigrated by the dishonest press for praying

    Good! I say cancel all teams coming to the White House. It is just a waste of time, energy, and money anyway. The president of the United States (POTUS) has more important things to do than to deal with some of the losers who think they are champions. They are just a bunch of overpaid idiots.

    Cancel them all, President Trump. The NFL, National Basketball Association (NBA), team owners, coaches, teams, and players are un-American and anti-American. Cancel all White House visits. It is an honor and privilege to visit the White House. Do not let those ingrates come to the White House and tarnish that sacred place. They all disrespect our American flag, disrespect the White House, disrespect our military warfighters, disrespect our nation, and disrespect our POTUS. Screw them all! Invite only groups that show respect instead of just being a bunch of overpaid spoiled brats. The owners association should fire Roger Goodell for inflaming all of this disrespect! Keep out the scumbags!

    I call all good, honest, patriotic Americans to boycott all NFL and NBA games and anything related to putting our dollars into the pockets of all of those spoiled brats and anti-Americans. Do not buy tickets. Do not purchase any sporting wear, goods, or services. Do not watch their games on television. I have stopped watching all sports, everything that Holly-weirdos put forth, and all of these mentally deranged, evil people. Stop watching ESPN. Screw them all! I support President Donald J. Trump—the greatest POTUS in U.S. history!

    Ever since the Liberal-Democrats (Lib-Dems) injected politics into Hollywood, Holly-weird has gone off the deep end. Do not watch the Oscars, Emmys, etc. Ever since the Lib-Dems injected their politics into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), we have the greatest hoax of the century in Global Warming. Ever since the Lib-Dems took over our mainstream media (MSM) and press, we now have the lame-stream media (LSM) and errant press disseminating fake news and propaganda.

    Ever since the Lib-Dems took over our colleges and universities, we have student protests and vandalism that have destroyed our education system and generate dumb-down students. Ever since the Lib-Dems have taken over our professional sports, we have idiotic players disrespecting the flag and the military. Ever since the Lib-Dems have taken over our courts, judges make political decisions and legislate from the bench. We have suffered through a corrupt Department of Injustice (DOI) over the eight miserable years from 2009-2017.

    America and Americans, the Lib-Dems are destroying our society by injecting politics into everything good and decent and are infecting everyone. We have nothing but political correctness (PC) garbage, Black Lives Matter (BLM), police assassinations, Anti-fascist (Antifa), illegal aliens bankrupting our cities and states, increasing Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) attacks, and a destructive Democrat Party causing the Deep State to work at destroying our country.

    Wake up, fellow Americans, and fight back. Our country is at risk from these enemies within taking over control. We must not allow the Lib-Dems to destroy everything President Trump is doing to Make America Great Again (MAGA). These disloyal, un-Americans are working 24/7 to destroy our beloved country. Let us not allow that to happen!

    If you display disrespect to our U.S. Flag and our country’s Anthem…..you are disrespecting our country…period!… and as the President said…it is wrong & there can be no wiggle room
    on this… in most all our American U.S. sports, there has always been about 1 minute set aside to honor our country, it’s heroes and all the unique opportunities afforded to our citizens (to include the million dollar opportunities these players have). This time is not a time to display distaste for “personal” and “political” platforms…. there are other forums for that.. & the majority of people in our country get it…… NFL players can talk all they want about what they may
    think about certain things they feel are unfair on their own time and on their own dime…. they have plenty of money to pay for their own political platforms and to right some wrongs! Our U.S. majority & NFL consumers are speaking as a unified people who are most definitely discontent with the NFL & its players…. our disagreement & discontent will translate in the form of much, much less $ to the NFL and their business…. it’s unfortunate … but being disrespectful comes with a price….

      Even after this is “settled”…bad taste in my mouth…won’t be watching!

  • Wayne Kessler

    I am done with the NFL; I never had any use for Baseball or basketball. I was a die hard Packers fan, also loved the Broncos. Between my dad, me and my son we have 28 years active military with each of us serving in wars. So to the un-greatful bastards that play a kids game for big bucks..adios

  • george briar

    unfortunately the morons taking a knee have no spokesperson that is explaining their protest and some of the idiots taking a knee aren’t sure why they are. Trump is the spokes person for the people and country and stands along side the flag they disrespect for what ever reason. some of the players say it’s about racial inequality but considering most of them black clowns make over 1 million a year while no one in the stands comes close to that and others say it’s about the way the police are disrespecting the blacks, but the people only see those black braking the laws and disrespecting the police. So yes the NFL should have stopped this crap right in the beginning before these idiots start burning the flag but in the mean time I am done with the stupid NFL not just because this is disrespectful to my country but it just isn’t that entertaining any more for me to watch. certainly won’t pay to see it.

    • Robert Uda

      That spokesperson is NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell. However, he is such a weak-kneed coward that he is now speechless. He is such a wimp. He should come on national television and defend his stupid kids for their idiotic antics. Now, even the little league football players and high school bands are sitting/kneeling to emulate the pathetic Professional Football players. What a joke!

  • Jon Smith

    IF YOU ARE AN AMERICAN,STAND TALL AND BE PROUD OF YOU COUNTRY, MOST OF US HAVE TAKEN THE OATH OF ALLEGIANCE AND HAVE INTELLIGENCE. BUT THESE IGNORANT MORONS WHO DONT EVEN RESPECT ONE ANOTHER, WHO LOOK FOR ALL THEY CAN TAKE WITHOUT RESPONSIBILITY FOR ANYTHING…….WHAT DO YOU EXPECT….THEY ARE AMERICA’S BURDEN….OF COURSE THE MORONS SHOULD RESPECT THE FLAG, THE ANTHEM, AND ABOVE ALL THE PRIVALEDGE OF BEING ABLE TO LIVE IN OUR GREAT COUNTRY…..OTHERWISE. GET THE HE’LL OUT>>>>>>>> NOW

  • Robert Uda

    I will never watch or attend any future Superbowl games. I also will never work on another Superbowl as a volunteer. My wife and I worked as volunteers on Superbowl XXXII in 1998 in San Diego, California, for the game between the Green Bay Packers and the Denver Broncos. The Broncos beat Green Bay 31 to 24. Roger Goodell can kiss his pathetic NFL goodbye because we won’t be putting a single cent into his grubby coffers. Roger, you can take your pathetic NFL and stuff it where it hurts!

  • Max Thor

    Long time NFL fan and I go back to Superbowl 3 between the jets and the colts. The players are being a disgrace to the USA. If these players did not have the NFL they would HAVE NOTHING!!! Yesterday I cancelled my NFL package with DIRECT TV and was told that they have been doing that since since Sunday. I will not tune out the NFL and start doing other things on Sunday. This is a game played by millionaires for Billionaires in TAXPAYER funded stadiums…When people stop watching and spending money on these asswipes the players will get what they deserve…

  • Sol_of_Texas

    The NFL has ruined many generations of American football to come. There is no fixing stupid.

    Anyone paying attention for the past 10 years will notice Roger Goodell has been slowly and surely destroying the game during his tenure. I no longer recognize the game. I am amazed the owners have been so oblivious. Fat, dumb, and happy I suppose.

    So damn the NFL. They created this path and now they will suffer the consequences.

  • Phillip Lake

    BOYCOTT THE NFL until they drop the political bullshit and go back to being a sports show. The travesty throughout all of this is the simple fact that the American Flag and the National Anthem have absolutely NOTHING to do with the riff between Blacks and the trigger happy cops in this nation. The Flag and the Anthem are not political in any way, shape or form. If this crap does not cease before Veteran’s Day in November then the entire NFL, and the liberal jerks in this country, are going to see the wrath of their decisions. I gave 23 years of my life for this Country and that included ALL people regardless of their race. The Flag and Anthem represents that love for this country and it’s people and not for the politics and abuses by certain factions within the country. Either get the damned politics out of the football game or WE will get out of the football game entirely.

  • emag

    I just saw in the Colorado news, that this Sunday Owners and Players will stand together. I hope that means FOR the National Anthem.

  • Margie

    This should have been nipped in the bud! The day Kapernick took a knee, and wore the cops are pigs socks, he should have been escorted off the field and suspended. BUT…the NFL and coaches were afraid because he is (partly) black.. for heavens sake, then they would be called racist!! But, that would have been the right thing to do. I’m out as far as the NFL is concerned! Better things to do with my life and time than to watch the low lifes!

    • nocbsfan

      Kapernick isn’t working, nobody will hire him.

  • Cheh Low

    Boycott the NFL for good. I am no longer want to watch these bunch of phony on the field.

  • nokabosh

    Many fans will be giving the NFL a bye. If they do watch they will note those who disrespect the country and not buy their products. Loss of income is the only thing these ingrates get.

  • PBHayes

    Ironic that President Trump is working for free around the clock to repair the massive damage done by his predecessors and these idiot athletes are poking him in the eye. The Clinton’s, Bush’s and then the Obama’s did irreparable harm to America and its allies and the left aka Democrat Socialists are afraid Trump might have success in turning our nation back towards the path of freedom and liberty. I stopped watching the NFL before Kaepernick because rule changes and zero leadership had made the sport boring and very predictable. Kaepernick was the final straw for me and everyone I know. LeBron James and his lemming followers have now stepped up their classless moronic chattering so I added the NBA to my list and now boycott them. I live in San Diego so I haven’t had a major league team in close to 10 years because I have the Padres. If one of those players chooses to take a knew I will never attend another game. Being stupid is one think but being ignorant is a whole other situation. The truth about black America is there for anyone to discover if they take a few moments. The statistics don’t lie and their failures have zero to do with the color of their skin or our nation’s history.

  • Brad Fisher

    Great!! It’s about time. Overpaid and no appreciation for country!!!

  • cg

    Yes. The left has to ruin everything that is good and great about this country, including the NFL. They are always the victims and facts just don’t compute with them. They facts say they are killing each other in the hood and they are trying to say all cops are bad. Not so…check the facts.

  • rayhause

    Finally these “do no wrong” athletes will get their dues. We have far too many men and women that has died for the right for them to even play the game. We pay out of the ass to supports these e fatkat owners with building stadiums just to mention. It is a guarantee that these owners will start changing positions when they have to start reaching into their pockets, because of loss revenues, to pay the salaries of these jerks, things will start changing.

  • 1775concord

    The football players who knelt before this past weekend are nonpatriotic and ignorant. Now…all President Trump did was point that out, and state what he, as a loyal American, would have done to them. So then the players think they are protesting Trump for pointing out their disrespect for the flag and disrespect for America.

    • Margie

      I think they are protesting President Trump calling them SOB’s….. Too bad. I am done totally with the NFL as is my family.

  • Brooklyn Girl

    The nfl, owners, players and coaches will be sorry that they messed with WE THE PEOPLE’S FLAG and NATIONAL ANTHEM. We will start with not watching games, BOYCOTT Monday night, BOYCOTT SUPER BOWL XXXXXXXXXXwhatever. If advertisers insist on paying good money to sponor such rubbish they will find out just how far WE THE PEOPLE will go to get their point across. NO PRODUCTS that are advertised on any of these games will be purchased, see how long they will continue to purchase time on these games for their products. WE THE PEOPLE have only just begun.

    The 49ers are my team and I haven’t watched them play a game since dumb dumb Colin Kaepernick took a knee! I haven’t watched any other team either!

  • Wesley Cory

    If I wanted to listen to a bunch of political rhetoric, I’d tune into Fox, CNN or some other news organization. I DON’T want it thrown in my face at a sports venue, so as far as I care, the NFL can eat Crow and go broke.

  • onederer

    You don’t need much common sense, when you’re a jock built like a tank. They don’t get paid for their brainiac capabilities. And when they are through with the game and time to retire, more than likely, so will their scrambled brains will already have been pre-scrambled.

    They are acting more in a monkey-see-monkey-do fashion. If the leader does it, so will they. Needless of self respect or national pride.

  • RockyMtn1776

    This year ends my 60+ years of supporting the NFL. I will not spend another dime of mine on these disrespectful, ignorant, immature, steroid monsters. They are compensated millions to play a game, and falsely claim they’re oppressed. My response to them is to take their team footballs and stick them where the sun doesn’t shine. Also, be honest and change the name of your union to the National Football League Traitors Union. It fits you much better.

    Maybe we should institute “Affirmative Action” to professional sports where players are selected by ethnic demographics and not talent thereby being fair to everyone. Using that formula 53% have to identify as white while 14% would be Black, 8% Latino, 4% Asian etc. Just a thought.

    • nocbsfan

      Funny !

      • Janelle

        Yes, and very true!!!

        • nocbsfan

          Glad to see you in good form tonight.

        • nocbsfan

          Thought you would be watching football tonight ?

          • Janelle

            Why would I start now???

          • nocbsfan

            Cause I don’t know what you do on football nights ?

          • Janelle

            Nothing involving football……….open to other activities, though!

          • nocbsfan

            Sounds like you enjoy fun times. Most women don’t care for football nights, it takes their guys away and all you do is pour chips and pick up Bud bottles. Haven’t had much to do with foot ball since I got out of Hi School. Went to college , went out for football and saw all these three hundred pounders and all I could say was, forget it. That wouldn’t be a game it would be suicide

          • Janelle

            I think you are right. But went to girl’s schools, so never ran into that.

          • nocbsfan

            Well I tried to get into girls school but they just laughed. (Not as a transgender)

          • Janelle

            Very persnickety about that, back from in the day!

          • nocbsfan

            Yeah that is what they told me, what the heck it was worth a try, so I just went to a coed next door.

          • Janelle

            Smiling……..two girls schools, four boys schools and three universities in the same area……..we were like catnip! Still makes me grin.

          • nocbsfan

            Wow sounds like my kind of place. There were plenty of girls to go around. You did have to take some time out for study. LOL 🙂

          • Janelle

            You are very right……very tough academically, had a part time job, student counsel and busy social life. Tight schedule!

            Sent from my iPad

          • nocbsfan

            Yeah that busy social life was a rough subject, took a lot of study time. So here I sit with all these degrees and retired.

          • Janelle

            I didn’t have a curfew……I made my own. 12:30 on Friday nights, 12::00 on Saturdays……..I wasn’t kidding about scheduling! Spare minutes were few and far between – no joke.

          • nocbsfan

            I believe you, to be truthful on my part, I just didn’t even try to keep track. I always took care of my studies and what ever time I had, I like to think I made good use of it. My Father would argue with that.

          • Janelle

            My parents didn’t disagree……..I didn’t even have time to argue with them! Actually a good thing in hindsight.

          • nocbsfan

            If you were serious about school it wasn’t easy. For people who it was easy didn’t seem to be learning anything. For me it was hard and I still wasn’t learning anything.But I got through. and I am not sorry, by that I mean it wasn’t a waste of time.
            LOL here you are listening to me prattle.

          • Janelle

            It was very challenging academically. Excellent, actually.

          • nocbsfan

            I gave them seven years, taking all I could handle Three different schools. Have to wrap this up. I had eye surgery, been a while now but still when I use them for a long time they start burning and all I can is shut them Hope maybe I can find you on here somewhere tomorrow, I have enjoyed our little chat.

          • Janelle

            Please take care of your eyes………sweet dreams. Laters.

            Thank you I will try. Dreaming is something I never remember, so don’t know whether I do or not. But sure thank you for the suggestion. You too.

          • Janelle

            Eyes better today?

          • nocbsfan

            Nice to see you up and at em today, How are you? My eyes just start burning (stinging) when I stare at the computer screen for to long.Then they tear up and can’t focus on anything, so I just give it up and close them for a while (like all night). Next morning everything is fine, but thank you for your inquiry .

          • Janelle

            What was the surgery for? I know it’s none of my business, so if you prefer not to answer, just say so, fan.

          • nocbsfan

            LOLOL 🙂 Cataracts, I will answer most questions some I wont answer on Disqus, for the whole to know. Most things aren’t that personal. Some question I wont answer that would identify me in my area, because then I couldn’t tell them they are wrong about everything. I would be just teasing but they would still get mad at me, so that is the reason I use a screen name.

          • Janelle

            So, are you now far-sighted?

          • nocbsfan

            Not anymore with lens implants I see as normal, as most people can with glasses So I can see you up close or way over there. Before surgery I couldn’t drive at night because headlights from splattered out so bad. And then had to use carbon arc light just to see what I was looking at. Now all that has changed, don’t use glasses except sometimes to read, depends on how tired my eyes are. So hows your sights?

          • Janelle

            Left eye is good, right is not! But did hear that I have the beginnings of cataracts. Am scheduled for another exam in three years. So be it.

          • nocbsfan

            Practically painless, they put you only slightly under and takes 10 to 15 minutes to complete. I felt no pain at all the whole time. You have to wear a guard over your eye for a couple of days, put drops in your eyes for a few days, to guard off infection, you can see right away. Its pretty good you can see colors much prettier , girls are much prettier. Helps your moral in many ways. If I would change this computer monitor I would probably get rid of this eyewatering, stinging sensation. When the time comes give it a try.

          • Janelle

            I already change the light settings on my devices! Excellent tool!

          • nocbsfan

            OhhhI guess I could lower the light level on this monitor, just never think about until it becomes necessary, then it is to late at night. I don’t carry all these different devices, just a cell phone which is never turned on until I need to use it. What would we do with out all these devices ??????

          • Janelle

            Are you thinking about it now? Good……go into settings and adjust it to your liking, guy!!!!

            Play football………are you serious………I can barely watch it. Hockey fan!

          • nocbsfan

            No, not really serious. Hockey is one game I know absolutely nothing about. Never live d around a place that had ice, so no opportunity to know anything about the game, Sorry, maybe I can teach you to bowl.

          • Janelle

            I know how! Have my own ball, drilled for my left hand. I am your worst nightmare in league play!

            Really, well i know several women who were pretty good. So you are a lefty huh, Is this something you do or have done. My worst nightmare. Jannie I like competition, so you wouldn’t be a night mare, maybe a sweetdream

          • Janelle

            I was really irritating………..high handicap and then I would hit a 200+.
            In other words, I was really annoying.

          • nocbsfan

            Yes that can be devastating , especially in a mixed league. Well I have to know my avg. was 192, now yours

          • Janelle

            Low was 110, high was 194. Total nightmare in league play! But I had fun.

          • nocbsfan

            I am looking for your average. that is your low and high game c’mon now spill the beans

          • Janelle

            Probably around 115. Am not sure, really.

          • nocbsfan

            Well thats not bad goes along with your (irritable game syndrom you were giving your opponents) If you have a 115 and then bowl 190 your a killer.. Very good, girl

          • Janelle

            It was really awful……..at least to the ones who took it seriously! I did not.

          • nocbsfan

            I thought you liked the game. Its a fun game and there is no use trying to take it seriously. I know many do, but we are all amateurs, we don’t do it for a living, just fun. If I took you bowling you would be laughing most of the time. Now c’mon let me see a smile. 😉

          • Janelle

            I loved the game and enjoyed the people way more!!!! Hmmm. Would we get to the alley every time?

          • nocbsfan

            LOLOL 🙂 You never know but I’m not much of a fortune teller. We could run the balls through the car wash

            WE made it thru the day, So how are you.Don’t think bowling worked all that good, do you like camping, in the rough with lions and tigers and bears. Oh my!

          • Janelle

            I love camping……..if it involves a cabin!

          • nocbsfan

            That’s not camping thats what you call a vacation. Camping is where you watch me fix breakfast

          • Janelle

            That is fine! Am all in for that!

          • nocbsfan

            If you like my cooking you might grow up. You told me you were five feet tall and under a hundred and ten pounds thats pretty small. Is that natural or you just don’t like to eat.

          • Janelle

            I worked for a lot of years……never really had scheduled meal times and eating quickly never worked well for me. So it is normal. I like food, but limit the intake or I get ill.

          • nocbsfan

            I can relate to that. LOL we can play that one by ear.

          • Janelle

            I generally order from the appetizer menu for an entree. Plenty.

          • nocbsfan

            Oh would you ever be easy to cook for. Just make tasty little things. Now what kind of things, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Mexican, one of each. Hmmmmmm

          • Janelle

            No asparagus, okra, clams, snails, squid or snake. Am good with most everything else! And you???

          • nocbsfan

            I like Asparagus, about all on this list. There is a dish I make with Clams but you really don’t taste clams that much. But that is not a must. Fish Beef, Pork, Chicken. Don’t care for wild meats. I was trying to see what kind of flavors you liked. Most veggies are good., But lovely lady I attend early church on sundays so I am going to turn in early on you this time.Hope I can find you tomorrow a little earlier. Love talking to you.

          • Janelle

            You can have my share of asparagus!
            Go rest and close your eyes, fan. Sweet dreams, guy. Love talking to you, also.

    If you told me the night Whitney Houston sang the National Anthem not long after 9-11-01, and brought the house down, that we would be having this conversation in 16 years, I’d have told you to seek intensive therapy. Useful idiots have always been manipulated by the left, and I’m afraid there are far too many of them playing in the NFL. Sadly, the left hates everything football and the NFL stands for, so the useful idiots will have done their bidding for them, and in the process destroyed their own golden goose. Oh well…at least I’ve found an extra 10 hours of free time per week.

    All they have to do is go to the NFL HANDBOOK. There are rules the NFL drew up themselves. All that needs to be done is open the book read it and digest it.
    It says: THE NFL PLAYERS WILL, NOT MAYBE, BUT WILL STAND FOR THE NATIONAL ANTHEM, PLACE THEIR HAND OVER THEIR HEART, AND REMAIN STANDING UNTIL THE ANTHEM IS FINISHED.
    I know that is not verbatim, but it is very close as is the meaning!
    I suggest the news media specifically reiterate what the verbiage is, and eat some well deserved CROW! They certainly need it.

    I became an NFL fan with the Oakland Raiders in 1965- and I was but a young 15 year old that went nuts for football! I have been over the last 6 decades a dedicated fan of the NFL! But when I see this kind of complete and TOTAL disrespect for the UNITED STATES of AMERICA I have to fall to my knees as cry in total and complete disbelief! I have ALWAYS BEEN A very CONCERNED CITIZEN FOR THE BLACK AMERICANS AND WAS always ON THEIR SIDE when I would see such hatred towards these people because they were with the color Black! But now that I am watching these same black men loaded with such complete and total hate towards America- and making MILLIONS every year- I say kick then out of the NFL AND SEND THEM THE HELL BACK TO THE COUNTRY THEY CLAIM IS theirs! If these black football players think they have the right to disrespect MY country, they have NO rights being IN IT! Nor do they have the right to earn millions of dollars for being such nasty UN-AMERICANS! I WILL NEVER WATCH ANOTHER FOOTBALL GAME AND I WILL ALSO SPREAD MY BELIEFS SO EVERYONE UNDERSTANDS WHAT THESE B;LACK PROTESTERS ARE SAYING! I HAVE HEARD THEM LOAD AND CLEAR- GET THEM OUT OF MY COUNTRY AND NEVER ALLOW THEM TO EARN ANOTHER AMERICAN DOLLAR! PERIOD!

  • Carl Pyzowski

    There is no way that an NFL game will be played on my T.V. I have been a loyal Redskins fan for over forty yeas.Their franchise started In Pottsville called the Pottsville maroons. They won the first Super Bowl, still not recognized by the NFL, but they did. I have football shoes and helmets from that team. I have an original picture of the Pottsville Maroons. Since they kneeled In protest to trump or whatever in opposition to the NATIONAL ANTHEM, they can all go to hell. And any sponsor that remains in their camp will be boycotted by me and my extended family. There are many other soda and beer and telephone companies, etc. out there to choose from. This is America. My father fought in WW-2, my grandfather in WW-1. I am not going to defame their name because a bunch of uneducated idiots support a black man for shooting a policeman in the face or killing innocent citizens in a drive by shooting because they think they are deprived.You millionaires are there by the grace of the taxpaying public should concern yourself with playing the game and no getting involved in politics. You are disgusting. Where do you get off criticizing the President of the United States? You are a bunch of assholes!

    Far to many of the people in the NFL are spoiled, immature ingrates that have never had to face the realities of life that most of us have. The have a chip on their shoulder and anytime they are not treated as “special” they blow a fuse. I was harassed by police departments for several years when I was younger. I have had the experience of having an officer approach my car with gun drawn, demanding that I “keep my hands in sight”, yet today, some of my best friends are active or retired police officers. Yes, there are a few bad apples in any group but for the most part, you get the same respect you display.

  • Barbara Johnson

    To all NFL football players you have been played by the left who have fanned the flames of hatred over many things that are not in reality true. In Chicago you have way more blacks being shot by other black men then the amount of blacks shot by white policemen. If it is clearly shown that a white officer of the law has broken that law then they should be punished for that crime. But ignoring what is right in front of you is denial of reality it self.

  • Paulus

    I gave up on the NFL years ago. I neither miss the on-field mayhem nor the non-stop ads on TV. I would also hate to help pay for their stadia through more and more taxation (laws passed without sentient representation). But now, I despise the people who have politicized the game or any game (NBA), by publicly failing to respect our Nation, our flag and our anthem. They are all despicable people. We should ignore them and their products, supporting media, BLM-loving political clowns, ESPN and greedy TV advertisers.

    • Helga miller

      Paulus, you are correct with everything you said. These highly paid players think they should be social commentators. We would include the primadonna basketball players as well. Baseball players seem to be a different breed but the game seems a little boring.

        It is boring as it is not a full contact sport like football is where you have the players pumped up on adrenaline and steroids bashing into each other. Baseball is much more refined with no body contact.

    Let’s get one thing STRAIGHT! Most of the disrespectful, arrogant ‘Kneelers” are BLACK. They are of the asinine mentality that slavery was a curse to which they were victim and repeatedly demand compensation. They may as well face FACTS, slavery set them FREE because this republic very quickly realized that the age old practice of the rich and powerful to enslave others less fortunate was inhumane. The code of Hammurabi, Circa 1754 BC, one of the most ancient legal records in existence, recognized Slavery as a normal practice. This nation prospered during its slavery years as did the surviving members of slaves. Yet today these very surviving relics of slavery are the worst criminals in Chicago, Detroit, and most other major cities. These latter day blacks insist that whites owe them reparations for past injustices. HOGWASH! In spite of the fact that decent, law-abiding blacks constitute the majority of Blacks, the rest are either lazy, shiftless, thugs, love ’em and leave ’em gangbangers, drug dealers or God given recipients of those athletic skills required to be a Pro athlete. Then, of course, we were blessed to have a /George Washington Carver, /a Colin Powell, A Condoleezza Rice and a Paul Robeson. So you damned sissy Crybabies quit Pro ball, get a job flipping burgers and earn your way to respect. as the situation stands now, you are despised even hated and may have a pile of cash to drug your way to oblivion OR, you can emulate some of your more decent and respectful and respectable peers Like the Shaq who has an earned MBA and the respect of the American public. GROW UP!

    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.

  • Robert Uda

    If NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has any brains left, he should warn all of the players, coaches, and owners that they are playing with fire. They had better shut up and stop trying to convince people that it isn’t an American Flag and National Anthem issue. It is a flag and anthem issue! It is not, as they try to say, it is a race and free speech issue. Bull crap!

    Even Colon Kaeperdick said in a video that it was a flag and anthem issue. You all are going to lose BIG TIME if you keep up what you are trying to do. If the football players were poor folks like we are, that would be one thing. However, these spoiled brats are millionaires and some many times over. They are not deprived. They are elitists trying to hoodwink the American public into believing that they are “poor is me” folks.

    Please shut up and pipe down, now, and start playing football. Do not ever bring politics back into sports. Politics have screwed up so many segments of our society and professions that it is beyond sickening. Please cease and desist or kiss the NFL goodbye. You all are a worthless, useless bunch of spoiled rich people. Get out of our lives! This post is from a Texas USAF Veteran who has washed the NFL out of our lives forever. Football is a frapping joke!

    The only time I would ever think of taking a knee is if I would do what George Washington and Tim Tibow have done and was chastised for it. I will pray to God our Heavenly Father to save our nation that the NFL folks want to destroy. Instead, you all will be destroyed for your stupidity.

  • Bob Zimmerman

    Most comments are losing sight of what the original, very limited protest was about. It was not about disrespect for the our country, our flag, our anthem, or our veterans. It was to draw attention to the appalling imbalance between how whites are treated by many local police forces compared to minorities. It only became a big deal after Donald Trump decided he had to tell NFL owners how to respond to the few players who choose to exercise their first amendment right.

    • Libs R Loons

      If that’s your real photo, you’re too old to be that idiotic.

          Bob originally Kaepernick took a knee because he said that the US was a bunch of racist and he wouldn’t stand for our anthem. It had nothing to do with white cops killing supposed unarmed black man. By the way if you believe he was unarmed and had his hands up saying don’t shoot then you have not done your homework and believe the lie of the left media.

They say it is about social injustice.That’s a bunch of crap and we know it and should never forget it. This BS of them locking arms is a continuation of their disrespect whether they kneel or stand. They are not addressing the flag or anthem, but saying let’s all get along while the anthem is playing far in the back round and many of them have not a care about it or those who died for our freedom. Now kids are kneeling before the flag and national anthem so the NFL has started something disgusting and they can go to hell when they start going after my children. I started making calls to sponsors and let them know I do not any longer need their products since they agree with the NFL by continuing to sponsor them.

  • bob

    Here’s what I don’t understand . Colin Kaepernick’s original beef was with the way police were treating people of color. Police are hired either by the state ( state police ) or cities & towns which are LOCAL authorities. The flag is a national symbol as is the NATIONAL ANTHEM. It’s NOT a state anthem & last I knew ,each state has it’s own flag. So why has this now become a NATIONAL issue. I’m sure there are many states or cities that the relationship between the police & it’s citizens ( black, white, yellow or brown ) are good & they have no problems or if they do, it’s solved on a local level & you never hear about it.
    So why now is this a national issue?

    Here is something I’ll bet all who are favoring the players, those owners & anybody who also favors this type of behavior,may not know.
    In the Official Players Rules on page 23 article 8 regarding “personal messages it states,
    ” throughout the period on game day that a player is visible to the stadium & TV audience ( including pre-game warmups , in the bench area, & during postgame interviews in the locker room or on the field,) they are PROHIBITED from wearing or OTHERWISE CONVEYING PERSONAL MESSAGES, either in writing OR ILLUSTRATION unless such is approved in advance by the league office .”
    It also states ” the league will NOT grant permission for any club or player to wear, display or otherwise CONVEY messages through helmet decals, arm bands, jersey patches or other items affixed to game uniforms or equipment which RELATES TO POLITICAL ACTIVITIES or CAUSES, other NON-football events, causes or campaigns or charitable causes.”
    So the ” conveying of PERSONAL messages related to POLITICAL activities or causes ” are in direct violation to the Official Players Rules.
    Roger Goodell enforced them when the Dallas Cowboys wanted to ” HONOR “the 5 slain Dallas police with a decal, but will NOT enforce the rules in that Players Rules book.
    What abut when Kaepernick wore the socks depicting police as pigs? Goodell is a HYPOCRITE & a total failure as a league President.
    He’s letting the in-mates run the asylum

  • Courtney Schumacher

    64% agreed with the statement ONLY because of the way it was worded. They weren’t given any other options. They probably don’t know that America has only supported standing for the flag since WWII. Most other countries and religions want you to kneel to show respect.

    • Janelle

      That seems to pull religion into the mix, perhaps?

      • Courtney Schumacher

        How so? I’m only using it as a comparison to who else used kneeling to show respect. That just HAPENS to be many religions. So what? One would kneel before the King when being knighted, in the old days. There are MANY examples.

        • Janelle

          What makes this so interesting is that Tim Tebow would drop to a knee after a touchdown to thank God and he was dropped for doing so. There may have been other factors that I am not aware of though. But he has moved on to baseball.

  • Deborah G

    Why is it so hard for the NFL to be respectful? Just stand you don’t have to sing and no one it saying they don’t have a right to feel any stupid way they want to. A national pity party for overpaid athletes. They didn’t create the Salk vaccine or stop world hunger. They throw a ball and get beat up. Modern day gladiators. Thhe NBA made a stand and will most likely get a boost in ticket sales. Have to respect them for that. OFF the field these guys can seek solutions for the issues they feel are real.

  • Floyd Sloan

    TO NFL: Go to Washington D.C. and kneel in front of each military memorial and finish by kneeling in front of THE WALL and focus on the 58,000+ names who gave their lives for our country and the incredible opportunities in America for upward mobility and playing a game in which you’re paid millions of dollars. Since our revolution some 650,000 Americans have died in wars to protect our rights as well as those of the free world!

    • Turn9

      I hope they realize a lot of the guys on that wall would have preferred to stay home and play games, maybe making the big time, but instead they went where their country asked them to.

  • cathylovesyou

    Good ! The players deserve whatever bad come of this attempt to take over our Country. Management is weak. They gave in to morons, who build nothing and are over paid. Feel sorry for the ones that were weak and gave in. Thought one of the Steelers was doing the right thing but he gave in to Communist pressure.
    Just like the Mayor of Puerto Rico. One day she slipped and told the truth then she was corrected by the communist Democratic Party and reneged so forcing Trump the tell the real truth. When people won’t fend for themselves and take pay off, when the chips are down they are not used to helping themselves consequently wait for others to do the work at hand. Drive a Truck or a Bus ? Come one girlymen. ,

  • Robert D

    Anyone remember that after 9-11 the NFL wouldn’t allow any kind of patriotic displays? What happened here? The NFL should have stopped this IMMEDIATELY, but they chose not tooo. This league has lost sight of what is right and wrong. Yes, this is America, and people have the right to say and do what they want-ON THEIR OWN TIME. Not with a captive audience that has no choice to watch their hate. Yes, hate. Kneeling and raising their fists in a black power salute propagates hate. Doing it after the president said they shouldn’t, in greater numbers, shows what they really think about our country. They are entitled idiots. Where else, but this great nation, can they PLAY A GAME for millions of dollars a year?

  • Mary

    First of all, the FLAG OF THE UNITED STATES should have nothing to do with discrimination to start with, The idiots who protest should not use the National Anthem to protest anything. I for one will never watch another football game, And I am proud of the sponsors who pulled out as well.. GOD BLESS AMERICA AND OUR MILITARY. Thank you Donald Trump for taking a stand for what America is all about.

  • MichaelZZ

    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.

  • Gay Phillips

    The most serious problem in all of this is I don’t think the players even know what the symbols of the flag and anthem mean. I think they are shocked at the blowback. They are yelling about their rights. Nobody is questioning their rights. People are questioning their lack of respect for their country, their lack of patriotism, their lack of understanding of the sacrifices that gave them their rights, there lack of appreciation for the rights they have, their stupidity in thinking they control the national discourse, their egotism, their laziness in knowing or understanding American history, their lack of concern about other people’s principles or feelings,…well finish the list yourself.

  • Herb1949

    What the nfl and the players don’t seem to realize is that they are entertainers, and we only watch them to be entertained. It is a form of escapism. I have been getting ticked at the nfl for allowing tv commentators to make snide political comments during a game broadcast, now I have just given up on sports. I went and got a library card.

    If I want political statements/comments I will turn on any one of 20 different tv stations that will have political news on.

  • louisewhiteford

    I do not need to know what President Trump said about honoring the flag and the Star Spangled Banner. I wish his family would hide his password to Twitter, but it is an affront to me to use this tradition for a political scheme. We are a Constitutional republic and there are tried and true methods that have been used historically to make changes and improvements. It would be so easy for the multimillionaire players to fund a legal group to provide protection for abused blacks just as Judicial Watch does for many miscarriages of justice. The childish behavior is not what we do. Perhaps the NFL can take a Hillsdale College course in the Constitution and learn what great measures this country has to protect its citizens. I find the “kneeing” of a serious tradition honoring our country childish. Who put these players up to this? It is not mature to be “unified” unless their is a really good reason for it. A necessity. Often those who stand alone are the only ones thinking intelligently. Being popular and unified does not mean being wise. Remember Galileo! These players may know how to kick, throw, run, catch and block but they seemed to have missed out on some fundamentals of our republic.

  • jesusknight

    Considering their own by-laws state that they are to stand for the Anthem, and they knew that when they signed on, they should all be fired for not doing so. It’s not like they didn’t know, right?

    Also, these guys make millions of dollars EACH.. why, oh WHY haven’t they used those funds for what they are protesting about in the FIRST PLACE?! They need to get off their lazy a** and just do it if they really believe that stuff. I am betting they do not, or they already would have.

    If they want to stand (or kneel) for something, why haven’t they put their money where their mouths (and knees) are?!

    Because they are nothing but disrupters and haters.. talk about HYPOCRITES! As always, follow the $$…

  • Allen

    President Trump said exactly what I would have said. If I did this at work, I would be fired. They deserve it also. And, the feigned outrage at the use of SOB. When Snopp Dogg, Dr. Dre, Ice T and other POS rappers say it, people like Martha Stewart get wet crotches.

DYNAMITE AND GRENADES ALSO HAVE TO HAVE A HUMAN TO CREATE ITS KILLING.. ITS THESE LIBERAL COCK SUCKERZ THAT ARE BRINGING THE NUTS OUT OF THE TREES AND INTO REALITY. LOSERS WANT TO BE REMEMBERED FOR WHAT THEY COULD NOT ATTAIN IN REAL LIFE. SO THEY RESORT TO ACTIONS LIKE THIS. BUT WHAT MAKES ME THINK ITS WAS MORE THAN A GUY WHO FLIPPED OUT- HE WAS A MULTI MILLIONAIRE . I THINK I COULD TURN OF CNN AND MSNBC AND CBS AND GET ME AN ISLAND SOMEWHERE WITH MY MILLIONS AND LIVE LIKE A KING. HAVE MYSELF 10 BITCHESZ ON CALL AND EAT THE BEST OF FOOD ETC. FISH – FISH AND FISH MORE. THEN GO INSIDE AND MAKE THE CALL FOR THE STRING OF BITCHEZ TO GET READY FOR WORK!!
    ALL FUNNIES ASIDE – THERE ARE HURTING FAMILY’S ALL OVER THIS COUNTRY AND CANADA THAT HAS HAD A LOVED ONE EITHER KILLED OR INJURED YESTERDAY- I THINK A MOMENT OF SILENCE FOR THESE HUMAN BEINGS ENJOYING LIFE BE REMEMBERED. GO OUT AND HUG YOUR FELLOW REPUBLICAN AND BECOME EVEN STRONGER AND DON’T LET THE FOOLS OF THE HILLARY CAMP INFECT OUR LIVES..

  • Nina Ferguson

    The players have a right to register their opinions. However, the fans also have a right to stop watching. No one wants to turn on the game on Sunday and see a bunch of millionaire players protesting the anthem and the flag. What does the old song say, “Never on a Sunday”. They watch the game to relax and enjoy, they do not want to watch a bunch of protesters. GOOD LUCK NFL. (you are going to need it)

  • Jjb54

    I’m beginning to wonder if this was staged and set on purpose and NOT by the Players or the Owners. I cannot help if they literally got caught with no idea right now “WTF just happened?”

    Point to ponder:
    Sure they have $$ and lots of it.
    But how in their right mind would Shoot the “Cash Cow”, by offending the very people that keep this Cash Cow going? Who would, on purpose create this PR NIGHTMARE, on purpose?

    I have a theory:
    His initials are G.S. and he has money to give away, to people who will take it, to do his bidding. I have a gut feeling, G.S. is behind this and it’s just another way he is attacking America and trying to “Bring It Down”.
    Any plot to take down America would involve the following:
    .. Attack Core Beliefs.
    .. Attack Icons that people enjoy.
    .. Attack the Documents: Constitution & Bill of Right & Declaration of Independence.
    .. Traditional Family values.
    .. Traditional Religious Beliefs.
    .. Create an Issue, for which there is none and AVOID at all cost the real issues.
    .. Make being “American” a thing to be ashamed of.

    WE THE PEOPLE … need to stand up and fight this and expose it and resist it at all cost.

We are tired of the political ‘corruption’ that is so deep it is killing us and we are tired of all the leaches of society that WE have to support…here and a broad. Wonder WHY stuff like Las Vegas happens? It doesn’t take to much thought about the frustrations of many many people that are just about to the breaking point. Since most of the ‘politicians’ that cause this are surrounded by body guards etc…its then taken out on innocent people. The NFL, NBA etc. have long been overdue for an overhaul. We the tax payers should have never given these ‘entitled’ overpaid thugs (not all) the leverage that they have had in these past years. We need to get down to business and live…now we are in this never ending cycle of upheaval from people who THINK they are important and then there are all those that want to see their name on TV or anywhere they can for attention like spoil ‘friggin’ brats!! Start at the local levels and clean house…start teaching your kids the meaning of REAL life and what we are all here for…God Country Family!!!

    I agree, I have ceased to watch anymore professional football games. How does the symbol of American greatness, symbolizing freedom and equality, a National Anthem that rejoices and proclaims the willingness of the people to rise up against ternary and establish a Nation Under God, where all of mankind are created equal. So when less than 3% of our Police force may be considered corrupt, multimillionaire football players disrespect the country and it’s symbols to bring awareness on a national stage that they didn’t pay for? Put your money where your mouth is, buy air time and explain your position with respect and dignity to your fellow Americans, make sure your not disrespecting the very symbol of your rights that have been paid with the blood of others, so you can voice your opinion on a platform that you have purchased, not hijacked.

  • cp123

    I’m really grateful to the NFL because their disrespect has taught me an extremely valuable lesson in life. My wife and I decided to tune out and spend that time playing football with our kids, go camping with them and the response brought us to tears. The time we wasted when we could have them was a huge mistake and we vowed to never watch losers but make our kids winners instead. Thanks NFL.

    I was mildly annoyed when that “fuzz headed football player used to be” was trying to protest last season. But this season I was Thunderstruck when an entire gang of these idiot football players and their owners jumped on the band wagon and even tried to morph the protest reason into a different form. They went too far and I’m afraid they crapped on their own dinner plate. The fans are pulling back and will not come back until the last football player behaves themselves. It looks like the NFL may do some serious damage to themselves before they can correct this situation. Since I have stopped watching any games myself, I could care less if they continue to be a real business or not!

    • ARTPSYCH

      Kaepernick is the fuzzy headed half white and black Mulatto NFL player. He looks half white to me.He i think is a product of post modernist group think and he stepped into some liberal-progressive B.S. into his thinking and decided he would be ‘different’ due to the racial police climate of deaths.The thing that screws me up is why the so called intelligentsia news media never talks about black on black crime of murder! hmmm? why it’s mainly men who die in gun deaths one on one and why women such as in Las Vegas women die plenty in this instance..but that’s the case mass murder is random if your there and in the way. Men are aggressive so Black on black death seems obvious to me..just thinking out loud here.Culturally i think Rap music is part of the issue of B&B death!

  • MrLogic

    If you NFL players want to protest something – do it on your own time. The football field is NOT the place for politics!!! If you continue to force politics into the game of football, you will find yourself playing for free! The average football fan will not support ANY player that wants to corrupt the game! Take warning football team owners!!! Take charge of your team – or go broke!!! The rules are already in place!!

      ///////////so as a man thinks so is he~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  • Shane Carroll

    There is a law, currently on the books, that defines what correct behavior is, while the Anthem is playing. To perform in a manner contrary to the description in the law, is unlawful behavior. Enforce the law. Simple. Put the offending players in jail, and cause them to lose a game check. That should solve the problem. If it doesn’t, fine the owners game checks for every player on the roster and end the game. Empty the stadium and send the players who participate to jail, and everyone else home. End of story. If you’d like to help me to work the sponsors, a complete list may be found on my page on Facebook called Shane’s Shout outs.

    • ARTPSYCH

      Seriously if there is such a law, in a post modernist society this is an out dated and useless law to enforce- if they even tried it, just think of this- we already have a police state now we don’t need this done to actually prove that point! The horrors of it would be way too extreme.

    Most sources inside the NFL have indicated that Sunday’s defiance was a one-time thing – a league wide “EFF YOU” to President Donald Trump that isn’t likely to be repeated.

    So if Hillary was in office it should be an EFF-YOU to her! Her Democratic leftist party was all about lynching-slavery segregation,kkk,jim crow under the past history of her party! Obviously even the Wash. SLIME’s Don’t talk about this nor the black on black murder rate which exceeds anything police do ..then again with low IQ’s of most players- it’s reasonable to assume their defiance is misplaced!

    Police shootings of whites exceeds blacks due to a recent data poll.
