LOL.
Ha. They are such role models for our young men, especially those in the inner city.
A poster boy for the BLM kneelers arrested for domestic violence, illegal firearm, and drugs- classic.

That has zero to do with the government, and thus isn't a First Amendment issue.  No one ever said the government should step in and put a stop to it, but people did express their opinions that the teams and league should.

I guess what a lot of people don't get is people have a right to express their own opinions about what other protesters say and do.

Dilly, Dilly!

Huh...

Elissa Ennis, the ex-girlfriend of San Francisco 49ers linebacker Reuben Foster, was in court Thursday testifying that her initial accusations against him were lies.

Her testimony is quite eye-opening. Here are some of the highlights.

The next morning, Ennis said she was cooking breakfast for Foster and his live-in friend, DeAndre Austin. That’s when Foster said he wanted to break up with her. “I can’t do this anymore,” Foster said, according to Ennis, who cried remembering this on the stand…

She also told the court that Foster did not hit her once, and that she actually hit him with a clothes hanger.

Reuben Foster’s accuser just gave extensive testimony, says he did not hit her once and actually she struck him with hanger.
“I was threatening Reuben. … that I was going to f*** up his career”
Called 911 3x because “I wanted to be extra. I wanted him to go down. I was pissed”

— Cam Inman (@CamInman) May 17, 2018

She went on to say, “I told him I’m going to f*** your s*** up and make sure you don’t have a job tomorrow,” per Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group.

Is football still a thing?  Short of High School football, haven't watched or attended a game since 2016.

The statements made on our earnings call were describing the factors that impact our business and we sincerely apologize to anyone that thought they were divisive. That definitely was not our intention. (1/3) We believe in the right to protest inequality and support the players’ movement to create a new platform for change.  We also believe together, as Americans, we should honor our anthem. There is a way to do both. (2/3) We will work with the players and league to find a positive way forward. Open to ideas from all. Except neo-Nazi (middle finger emoticon) those guys. (3/3)

It's called going sideways...

Here's an article from 2013 about players not going to these photo ops. Including that thug Larry Bird.

http://theweek.com/articles/460872/18-athletes-who-refused-visit-white-house

"Bird and others from the 1984 Celtics turned down the chance to visit President Reagan for unspecified reasons, with Bird later quipping, "If the president wants to see me, he knows where to find me."

No wonder he was known as "the big hick from French Lick"...

In a statement accompanying the announcement, Goodell said the league wanted to eliminate criticism that suggested the protests were unpatriotic.

"It was unfortunate that on-field protests created a false perception among many that thousands of NFL players were unpatriotic," Goodell said. "This is not and was never the case."


                               BULLSHIT!

That twat Goodell is a well paid owner's whore and his perception of what constitutes "patriotism" at any given time can be instantly revised with his latest bloated paycheck.

The "Not For Long" ain't getting my money for their "Sunday Ticket" scam or any other incidental swag.

Yes, where would anyone get the idea that disrespecting the flag or anthem is unpatriotic?  Only the Libs, forever demanding to know if we are questioning their patriotism when they are shown to be undermining the country, would be unclear on this. 

I suggest it's unpatriotic to watch or attend NFL games until Roger (who names a kid Roger anyway?) Goodell and the kneeling players are no longer associated with the league.

Amen.

Odd isn't it that guys who play a team sport have no idea what it means to be part of the team known as America!

One of the smarter ones let the cat out of the bag:  Eagle's Chris Long tweeted that the owner's move isn't about patriotism, it's about ''fear of a diminishing bottom line''.  In other words the players should be able to drive away customers at no cost to themselves.  This was confirmed today when other players are said to be scheming on ways to get around the new rules just to stick it to the owners.

It amazes me these players insist on telling us how patriotic they are, and it isn't about the flag or the anthem.  This is the same Alinsky tactic the Left uses when they insist all their riots are ''peaceful''. 

Of course that makes sense when we find out Kaperpumpernickel's girlfriend is an unrepentant outspoken BLM thug.  He certainly trashed the country when he was still in the league and asked about why he was doing it. 

I'm glad the NFL players are continuing this.  I've long since stopped watching sports on TV and going to games, and would love to see the NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL collapse.

I don't follow the story about the NFL kneelers, but I understand that professional sports players are doing it in response to perceived police brutality, mainly against black Americans. Now, Trump has called them unpatriotic and the NFL Corporation has banned the behavior.

As someone who couldn't care less and who sincerely hopes both teams business franchises lose whenever there is a game, I have a couple of observations. First, isn't protest what America was about? Protest is democratic, right? It lets the voice of the common man be heard. So, why the backlash?

Second, AFIK, the NFL is a privately owned business, a private enterprise. The owners can make up whatever rules they want. If the owners don't like kneelers, it is within their rights to fine them or fire them and blacklist them.

I can't stand to watch it. I'd rather be outside playing my own sports and having fun.

You are way behind. All of the actual protests took place almost a year ago. You do realize the NFL is substantially funded by local, state and federal governments. The NFL is tax-exempt because of its non-profit status. The military pays them to support and showcase veterans at the events and buys advertising during the games not counting things like the color guard and aircraft flyovers.

The initial protest was supposedly about police violence and that included one protester. Colin Kaperknick. He opted out of his contract with the 49ers and was not picked up by any other team in spite of his feelings that he was a superstar that everyone should pay 75-100 millions for. The protests last fall were in support of him. The guy that could have had a $28 million contract but refused to sign his option. He still hasn’t been signed and the NFL lost a LOT of money last year because the fans got sick and tired of the prima donnas pulling their shit while beating their wives and girlfriends, assaulting police officers when they are caught driving drunk and even committing homicide.
