Good for them. Nice to remind players that they are lucky to be a part of this private company and there are plenty of guys who would replace them in a heartbeat.

I can’t stand the NFLPA backing these clowns, they need to do a better job of picking their battles.

The NFLPA will fight this, Goodell will say something stupid, sportscasters will wank about it, and TV ratings will drop again.

Can I ask why kneeling is considered disrespectful? People kneel to show respect for their god(s), monarch, etc. Turning your back to the flag is disrespectful. I don't think kneeling while facing the flag is. This has been blown out of proportion by yahoos itching for something to bitch & fight about.

The most offensive part of the whole story is people who thought, even when the story was still breaking, that Kaepernick was still a starting-caliber NFL quarterback.

Near-genius move on his part, that ultimately didn’t work out. Start race-baiting the league to give you an appeasement contract after your better days are behind you. Oh well. Kudos on the ploy, even though it didn’t work out.

I agree. I don't see kneeling as disrespectful.

Also - the message has been distorted. The players are kneeling during the National Anthem to protest the treatment of blacks (I don't quite understand that logic but that's it.) They are NOT protesting the national anthem or the flag. It's not a matter of patriotism.

Besides - you'd think this would be something that the right would love. Look at these people exercising their 1A right to peacefully protest. It's a great lesson.

Hey, 88, you’re getting mighty feisty for a centrist! :lol: :shocker:

Exactly. Blown out of proportion by an asshole who dodged the draft, disrespects the military, doesn't even know the words to the National Anthem, and tweets congrats to this Charming, Unique, Needy Twatwaffle:

If, in your two half a mind combined, the Donald “disrespects the military”, please, pray tell, describe what OBAMA’S opinion of the military was? Because Donald looks like George Fucking Washington compared to the douchebag that preceded him (from a military perspective)...Never in my lifetime have I seen a president have such disdain for the military as Obama proudly displayed at virtually every opportunity.

They're both egomaniacs who could give 2 shits about the military or anyone else besides themselves?

You’re right, but you’ve become a rather grumpy old man. Worse than I am. Worse than Houndy. Worse than 89. :ohno:

So announcing to the world that you know more than U.S. Generals in the Middle East
is somehow "respecting" the military

and

IMO, it was the media that blew it out of proportion. The media took a human rights issue and turned it into an anthem and flag issue. Trump only chimed in when he ran out of other things to tweet about. The NFL is only worried about the money.

COWBOYS UPDATE #1

Great timing, fellas. 2018 is surely the year to buy penis-shaped water guns, then take them to the club, exposed barrel-up, and get yourself photographed with a bunch of young white girls. Goodell is thrilled, I'm sure. :lol:

In his defense, a bar full of young women is the only place you can walk around with a plastic cock sticking out of your waistband and not be a homogaypussyfaggot

He had better hope none of those gals are woke though

BTW I've lost track on the SJW intersectionality hierarchy... who outranks whom... black man or white woman?

No you wouldn’t, because there is no 1st Amendment right to protest in this instance. When you’re an employee at work, in uniform, representing your employer, you have no 1st Amendment right to protest. ZERO. It doesn’t matter if it’s the NFL or (insert your job/career field here). That is the lesson which a lot of people can’t grasp when they claim the players are exercising 1st amendment rights.
