    I much prefer kneeling during the anthem to blocking traffic. It's high visibility and forces people to confront an actual problem we have in this country. I'm not mad at any player.

    Look at how the media is preaching it and come back again. Reverend Sharpton is on the march.

    140+ posts in under an hour.....

    ....hate this crap...stand up, you are getting paid in THIS country...Kapaernick was taking his shots at the police....can't stand him...I assume that the next time that clown needs some support, that all of the leftwingers can come crying to his house as it burns down or when he gets a flat tire, they can all come flying to his aid...no one with a uniform, past or present, will come to help him...and it should be the same way for anyone who kneels during the anthem

    Do you have a problem with Muhammad Ali and what he stood for politically during the height of his fame?

    Don't be on the wrong side of history. This is bigger than Kaepernick now, unfortunately. These guys aren't doing anything evil or sinister, they don't hate the country or the flag... they just want equality.

    It's a noble cause to protest for, even if you think it's the wrong forum.

    Lol at infringing upon your "NFL fan rights".

    Even if you hypothetically had said rights, the players are still executing their contracts, in full, and youre getting the football product you tune in to see.

    Yep! I read an article today that said only 3 players knelt last week and after President Trump’s comments there were 300 or so.

    With this whole politically charged railroading of Elliott in progress, and now with the politics of all this going on, not sure how much more I can stomach. I feel you, man. Wish they would remove the politics from our game.

    Yeah, and that something that I've NEVER done. Yet people like you seem to throw that term around pretty freely. I can also say this. Most of the time, the people constantly calling people racists tend to actually be the real racists. I treat people the way they treat me. I don't care what color you are, what religion you practice, etc. I expect the same.

    Sure. They're supporting their colleagues against someone who called them SOBs and said they should be fired.

    No, it isn't. These are football players, most of which are dumber than a bag of hammers. They need to play football.

    We're three hours from kickoff, and all we're discussing is this made-up issue that is based on complete lies and fabrications.

    They go out and beat the Cardinals by three scores they can whip it out during the anthem for all I care.

    Well, now it sounds like you're accusing me of being a racist. What was "people like you" supposed to mean?

    This would be a great come compromise: The Cowboys respect the anthem and flag. Then Sir Jerry convenes a 4-hour Saturday morning seminar about injustices and how to correct all of society's wrongs (including why some go hungry and homeless and some are paid millions) and let's see what the players' turnout is. See how many roll out of bed, on their time, to discuss injustices. :muttley:
