    I am sorry the moment they step out of their undies into their Jocks they are on the job. If Dez decided he did not want to dress out for warm ups my guess he is he wont play. The players may be "dual" employed first being a representative for their respective teams and being a representative of the NFL on game day.

    only to minorities? no of course not. more frequently to minorities, absolutely. I've seen it. I've been apart of it. As far as the nfl and anthem goes, Kaep chose to use his platform as a way to protest against it. Would i have done it? nope but i don't see a problem with it, nor do i feel its as big an issue as people make it seem to be.

    What I saw is exactly what he said, and no it didn't say anything about cutting anyone.

    Why does it happen more frequently to minorities? Isn't it meant to be a big issue? Isn't that the point of disrespecting the national anthem while on national tv?

    I honor your freedom to say that but face to face, I'd kick your but then buy you a beer or two and still not hold a grudge.

    Point one I would not doubt it, it would mean stopping the war on drugs, which in itself is probably a good idea.
    Point 2 would not make a difference because black cops that enforce the law are demeaned and called names.
    Point 3 they would love that.

    why does it happen? your guess is as good as mine. not proper training. possibly racism, or not the right personnel in the job. If we knew why, we could fix it. but we don't so it continues to occur. and yes it is a big issue. for me, my family, my friends, my race. It doesn't bother many of us because we understand the problem and agree it needs attention

    No but I know how that would make me feel it did. Hence why I can see where the players are coming from and what protests mean to them. We are all entitled an opinion via the first amendment.

    This is called empathy.

    I don't complain, I just tell it like it is. My guy won the election so what's to be upset about? You mad? I don't give what you are saying a second thought, it's the drivel of weak mind so why bother.

    Do you think it is possible that minority communities experience more incidents with police for reasons other than improper training, possible racism or not having the right personnel? Could there be another explanation for it?

    I wish this crap would come to an end. It spoils the game and has no place in the sports entertainment business.
