- NFL ticket sales plummet 17.9% - eat it traitors.
- I’m A Black Football Fan, And I’m Done With The NFL
The guy who stood up for the flag backed down or was told to back down. Lame.
I'm confused, locked arms is good and is kneeling bad, or are both bad. And again, the #1 killers of black people are black people.
Now all the sports teams are boycotting the national anthem. It's sickening. I hope they all lose viewers. One even stood up for the UK song and keeled for ours.
Remember when all the sports teams were doing all this stuff for the soldiers and now how is this any different?
President Donald Trump’s criticism of players who kneel during the national anthem sparked a mass increase in such protests around the National Football League Sunday, as about 150 players sat, knelt or raised their fists in defiance during early games.
A week ago, just six players protested.

|who gives a fuck to be honest. i don't understand how national anthem even got associated with sports, what does one have to do with the other.|
i'm much more concerned that we have a president who spends his day tweeting about sports players rather than worrying about a country that just went through two huge national disasters and has a crazy person threatening us with nukes.

|It's a shame that President Trump weighed in, because it lends this kneeling movement legitimacy. Now, anywhere from 40-60% of the country supports this nonsense as a big F U to the president. |
What is lost in all this is the original reason for the kneeling--Colin Kaepernick's false narrative of unequal treatment of minorities by police. Now you've got entire teams of useful idiots bending the knee because of this malarkey. We were better off when the former policy of benign neglect was still in place.
On the bright side, my Sundays in the fall and winter (including this one) just opened up.
EDIT: I was probably too mild when I characterized Kaepernick's protest as "unequal treatment of minorities by police".
Here is what Kaepernick said when asked why he kneeled during the anthem back in Aug of 2016:
"I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color," Kaepernick told NFL Media in an exclusive interview after the game. "To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."
This guy needs to take a Xanax or something. The biggest threat to black men is other black men, not police. It's not a close margin. Were it not for proactive policing and improved trauma care, the bodies in the streets would be stacked even higher.

|I think the whole kneeling or refusing to cover their heart is disrespectful, but let them do it. There are WAY more disrespectful libs out there than that. BUT supervillain is totally right, no tax money should be going to sports teams.|

|I don't waste my time watching other people play sports, but golf is nice in the background.|
If race keeps defining these people, maybe they can split up the teams by something more interesting than cities which don't have anything to do with the players, so we can egoically get behind them. Or kneelers vs standers. "Kneelers" sounds like an actual football team name already.

|Tell you what... I am #boycottNFL all the way. Not because I am upset about the kneeling. I think all organized sports are dumb.|
It is really entertainment after all. It is a bit like a TV show that has been renewed for far too long and should have been cancelled a long time ago. I know people that will tell me show X (say Rick and Morty or Firefly) is stupid but yet they have to catch their footballs every week (every day if they could). At the end of the day, it is just entertainment, and the fact that you cheered them on from your couch has nothing to do with them winning or losing, it just helps put more money in their pockets.
