From nearly 1,000 miles away, several Redskins players used the Monday Night Football stage to draw attention to the situation that has been unfolding in Ferguson, Missouri by running onto FedExField with their hands up in the air.

Another reason where it’s getting to the point that I could care less about the National Felons League.

So now the NFL has decided we need to take the liberal side in the Brown case?

I think someone in the NBA took the liberal side of the Trayvon Martin case, wearing hoodies in support, etc.

Why are sports leagues being liberal, why do they take sides in anything of this nature?????

LOL! This has to be satire. Even NFL football players can’t be that stupid.

I’m not sure where you would get the idea that football players are not stupid.

Following Washington’s win against Cleveland, WNEW learned the idea for the gesture came from safety Brandon Meriweather and cornerback DeAngelo Hall.
“We just want to show our supporters what’s going on in St. Louis,” Meriweather said. “We just wanted to show support.”

“That could have been any one of us,” said free safety Ryan Clark. “That could have been any one of our brothers, our cousins… When you get an opportunity to make a statement, and be more than a football player, it’s good.”

Maybe they were trying to say that if Brown HAD put his hands up, he and that Ferguson mob would all be home watching the game right now.

They are practicing for the regular season with their hands raised in surrender. I hope they don’t win another game. Change their name to the “looters”. They seem to like what is going on in MO.

Redskins Name Problem SOLVED...

The Washington Looters! nothing RACESS about that.!

you and I know this as well as most of us on here but there is people , a few on here even who pushed the lefts , Holder, Sharpton, CNN, MSNBC, etc garbage.

Those who pushed the lefts garbage the other day on here have suddenly gone back into hiding waiting for the next time something happens.

The reason I state this is because it is stunning how many jump on the lefts media bandwagon with out thinking. The same happened over Zimmermann , the Cambridge cop ,and the Atlanta bombing

Way to go, Media whoring Dead Skins! It is one way to get attention, since you aren’t going to get it by having a winning season..

Of all these guys, Ryan Clark should be smarter than this. He’s a sharp dude and I thought pretty level headed. Oh well...another set of brainwashed fools.

“Even NFL football players can’t be that stupid.”

Indeed, it is quite difficult to become as corrupt, crime ridden, and idiotic as the NBA, but it would appear that the NFL is coming along quite nicely.

If it weren't for (ridiculously) high paying jobs as athletes a lot of these "people" would probably be selling crack or boasting convenience stores.

The NFL used to be the hallmark for respect, self-sacrifice and Christian behavior.

Now, from ownership to the least player, they become a hedonistic bunch of prima-donna thugs.

There is nothing decent about pro football anymore.

Many NFL players are familiar with having their hands in the air.
Maybe someone yelled FREEZE as they were running out.

I agree. That’s why I don’t waste my time watching any of that showboating crap anymore. Back in the 70s, I LIVED to watch the NFL. It was a sport in those days. Now it’s just a bunch of showboating entertainers.

the nfl has has jumped the shark, as they say. it now resembles professional wrestling more than an actual sport; more spectacle than anything else.

and unless they are stopped, they plan on doing the same thing to college football.

This causes me possibly reconsider my support for them retaining their team name.

Actors and sports people need to keep politics out of their acting and sports.

It is difficult enough to watch the NFL players run around in pink football shoes.

We are at such a dangerous tipping point. At every turn Reality is trumped by Leftist Media-Driven Fiction, in order to support an anti white, anti christian, anti heterosexual, anti Liberty offensive.

Facts and evidence are no longer needed to support and promote arguments of the left.

The Left is determined to seize the moment and keep the momentum. They will not be deterred by facts. We are witnessing the beginning of the “Purge.”

Conservative Traditional Values Americans appear as capable of mounting a counter offensive as do the Kurdish Villagers against ISIS.
