So are all protests cool or does the issue behind the protest matter.
I'm thinking about putting mine up for sale altogether. Make money, don't watch, and have more time on Sunday. Doesn't sound half bad.
I will file that in the cut off your nose to spite your face file
I guess "4Ever" ain't what it used to be.
I've got my finger on the button. I'm already bored with the NFL, this will be the catalyst for getting me out for good.
What is your definition of infringing?
bet you wont
Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences. Unless and until players are fined/jailed for speaking out, this is not a free speech issue.
no you won't, that is silly
that's a terrible thing to post, crosses the line and should be removed/deleted by Mods
America's Team will respect America's anthem and flag. Or Jerry will do exactly as the president said... " you are fired you SOB.
You obviously don't know me.
At this point, the protesting is just backlash against our President, who treaded where he shouldn't have.
Or stop requiring players to come out for anthem
I wouldn't protest myself but respect the rights of others to do so
Simple solution is those who don't want to stand for anthem can stay in locker room
This thread has a limited shelf live. Name calling already.
There are MANY things more important than football. There's simply too many idiots in the world.
didn't bringing the military into the anthem a few years back pretty much put politics in sport?
We'll see when that salary cap shrinks due to lost revenue and a smaller TV deal. Let's watch Dak Prescott get a fourth what he would have gotten, and that rookie salary drops below $100K.
Owners are probably already looking for back doors to shut the league down before the concussion lawsuits start. The league will soon be dead.
Then what's the next Marshawn Lynch and Ezekiel Elliott going to do for a living?
Pretty much the way I see it, Scipio. Once he went after the players and told fans to leave the stadium, the owners got involved. Billionaires like to be left to their own laurels, and hate their money being messed with.
at least they wont be unique, every team is doing it. Id rather this then the 5 upcoming weekends of Pepto Bismol pink we have to watch yet again this season. it should be one freakin weekend, and whoever had a bye that weekend do it next weekend. But no it has to be a whole month every year
