I apologize up front, but I am an old dude who long ago after military service renounced what is called " racism ". I can not help but feel it is being perpetuated but those that profit by doing so. White activists, black activists and particularly " the media ". That's were the money goes. Let's just take a look around and acknowledge our society is a lot different then it was in the 1950s. There are an awful lot of people being enriched by constantly stirring things up. They deserve to get their " pink notices ".

And by kneeling they show disrespect to those who gave.

On the other hand they deserve to have free speech just like everyone else.

I don't support what they do and believe they should find a different venue and time to express their views.

There is a time and place for everything. Protesting as they do is the wrong time and the wrong place.


The new policy is all about money and nothing else. The owners are alarmed at declining revenues, period.

You don't watch the NFL for the anthem, so if you don't like the kneeling, ignore it like you do racism and police brutality.

Excellent idea. Especially since before the protests started, the networks never showed the national anthem before football games. They sold that time to advertising. Makes you wonder what their motivation was.

I used to enjoy football.
Then, I stopped caring.
Now, I hope that the NFL goes out of business.
College football is also no good.
Thank you Joe Paterno for showing us what a lovely bunch the NCAA can be. Football ueber alles!

"The quarterback of the Pittsburgh Steelers is questioning whether he should continue to play football and a Baltimore Ravens lineman has already quit after the publication of a new study that showed brain damage in 110 out of 111 deceased NFL players.

The study, published July 25 in the Journal of the American Medical Association, has been construed by some analysts as the death rattle of football. "Could football ever end?" a columnist in The Wall Street Journal asked, while Forbes headlined an article on the research "The CTE study that could kill football."

110 out of 111

The policy stinks. When players knelt for the anthem, they were revealing themselves as being unpatriotic. Now, there is no way to tell who is patriotic and who is not, because you are forcing people to act patriotic even if they are not. It's kind of like when you force someone to apoligize for something. The apology is worthless because you never know if it is genuine.
