You fellas in the NFL had better all stand with your hands over your hearts next Sunday, or your sport is doomed. It is pretty obvious that you don't believe this, but watch what happens next. You are forcing fans to choose between loyalty to lawless, disrespectful, bigoted black players mostly who feel they can do whatever they want whenever they want and the country governed by rules of law and requirements of patriotic loyalty to survive.
This is almost literally a choice between a collapsing path to severe division and civil war, or unity in honoring our country and flag a de-escalation of conflict. This is the dividing line in our history going forward. Either you are for this country, or, you are against it as it stands. You can NOT have it both ways. You are trying to FORCE us to accept your rebellion and get rid of Trump and all we voted for, or else.
Choose you this day whom you will serve moment for all of us. It actually is a choice between good and evil this time.
As far as I am concerned, it is already over.
These spoiled rotten, coddled-to millionaires playing a kids’ game have shit in their messkit. Now they can eat it.
I really hope the NFL goes under. There are so many better things Fathers can do with their kids on the weekends.
Kneeling for the National Anthem in London and standing for God Save the Queen was the last straw. Disrespecting our country on foreign soil goes beyond freedom of speech.
The NFL thinks they’re going to win this. The same way Hillary thought she was going to win...
I don’t see this a race issue. There were plenty of white players sitting also.
These are people that listen to cnn and msnbc.
They won’t get the message until they play a game with less than 10,000 fans in the stadium.
Which could happen at some stadiums next Sunday.
shit in their messkit
haven’t heard that in a longggg time,always liked it, gets the point across
They’ve been dead to me for years.
The fat lady is about to sing
PLAYERS have now become no more than PAWNS of the ESTABLISHMENT.
It’s been heard that dogs *even cute, friendly dogs* snack on pawns. A very high price to pay for the owners to restock their shelves - err- fields.
idiots sticking with the “bros” F them too
American football sucks anyway. Takes 3-4 hours to play 4 15 minute quarters. My husband and I watch soccer. The REAL football where 90 minutes of playing takes 90 minutes! None of those steroid enhanced American throwball players could run and keep up with any of those soccer men on the pitch. They’d fall dead of a heart attack before the half time.
If the sanctimonious NFL cares so much about free speech, why dont they stand for Milo and his free speech rights being squashed in Berkeley?
Hmmmm, it must just be about them losing control of their players. I smell a rat with the NFL and the NFL Player’s Union. Trump knows something and he must be setting them up. The NFL is as corrupt as Congress. Ask Jessica Savitch...oh, you can’t, they found her dead in a ditch.
Economically, the NFL will tell you their 32 franchise teams are valued at around 32-billion dollars. That was fake economics. You can look at the system built and pronounce that without the fan base....it’s probably worth one single billion alone. You are looking at a massive economic ‘bridge-burning’ episode underway. The NBA is in the same bucket. These $131 Chicago Bears tickets (for a 2016 team) with a 3-13 record....paid into a bucket and says the Bears are worth $1.1 billion. Well...with that record and the whole knee thing...the real value is now a joke. It’s a simple pyramid scheme.
I agree bro. Its ALREADY over for me. Never going back.
Unfortunately this crisis cannot be settled anytime soon. It can’t be resolved because there no longer exists a reasonable social consensus in this country that is based on commonly held cherished values. A significant minority of citizens has a palpable hatred for traditional values and have embraced a nep pagan epicurean, hedonistic lifestyle that mocks other Americans. The NFL , along with the Networks and advertisers are crass. foolish and care only on maintaining revenue streams. Hence they have chosen wrongly. They have ridiculed Tebow for kneeling in prayer and celebrated Kaepernick for disrespecting America. They honor a team like Pittsburg that except for a real man like Villanueva, sheepishly insults America. Given the addiction of American men to watch football, the NFL sadly will survive and keep making money. Simply underscores how divided and warped the country has become.
It does seem to be mostly a race issue if you read comments on other web articles. Started as BLM type thing, remember during the hands up don’t shoot Ferguson thing and the one footballer started it, theen carried over to a sort of anti-Trump stance too because they think he’s racist.
The point is that not very smart football jocks support the erroneous narrative made up by Black Lives Matter (BLM). BLM is a racist terrorist organization that promotes the killing of innocent police officers!
There is also NO facts that support BLM’s issue. Facts don’t support it! All based on a political narrative and misplaced emotionalism!
NFL is stupid to support baseless political issue of a racist terrorist organization like BLM!
Dumb jocks don’t realize they are killing the gravey train for the next generation of players!
