..our National Anthem..
« on: September 24, 2017, 12:09:26 PM »
.
not a football fan here but I tuned in to the playing of our National Anthem at the New England/Houston game today - just to see what all the hubbub was about.....seems the luster of the The Star-Spangled Banner is being dimmed by a few p.o.s. black players (there may be white players doing this crap but I didn't see any doing so)

what is it these dolts are trying to get across - gotta say that whatever their "problem" is I, for one, am not sympathetic

DCD327,

Personally, I wanted to stand up & cheer when President Trump "called out" these ANTI-American MORONS. = Imo, they are a DISGRACE to the team uniform that they wear &  if I was an NFL owner, they would be GONE forever NO matter about how they "feel". = STUPID SOBs describes them, imo.

satx78247, as usual, you’ve hit the nail on the head!  The NFL Owners *could* end this disgrace in a minute IF they’d grow a pair.  Just like anywhere else in the business world, these guys need to understand, they can be replaced.  There’s plenty of young, talented players just chomping at the bit to sign mult-million dollar contracts (who know to keep their own political views out of the spot light). I won’t be watching the NFL this year.

To me  most all sports are a waste of time to watch when I could be doing something better with my time.
I really enjoyed watching TOP SHOT when it was on  and now the only show I watch on tv is The Last Ship
and that's about all I care about .
Now when the weather gets cooler I will be doing more range time.

I couldnt agree more.  :thumbsup1:

I hope these people totally destroy their career and find out what its like to live poor.
I dont even want to see it. My blood pressure goes up as it irritates me so bad.
If I was at a game I would be throwing everything I could get a hold of at them.
Ive seen this happen at races when officials are making unfair calls and showing favoratism. And boy does it get the point across to the powers that be.

These people are a total disgrace and should be charged with sedition, and throwed out the country IMO.
If you DONT want to be an American,, thats fine. Easy enough to fix too. 

GET THE HELL OUT of my country.   :scream3:

They are not only disrespecting the very country and flag who's freedoms they enjoy. They are disrespecting every soldier who ever served,  fought, and died, under that flag to protect those freedoms.

I was a very happy when they passed the  National Defense Authorization Act , that  made it law that   veterans were legally allowed , and recognized, to stand and salute the flag out of uniform. 

I always did it anyway. To my dying day, I ALWAYS WILL.

Tango,

One wonders how many MILLION DOLLARS that the owners are willing to lose to kow-tow to a few ANTI-AMERICAN MORONS??

Oh, it *can* happen; I mean there’s a way for it to happen.  But I agree it’s not likely to happen.
The Owners, and NFL in general, would have to feel the wrath of the fan$. 
Like most everything, it’s just a matter of money!  The fan base would have to stopping watching the NFL on TV (advertising revenue would have to plummet), fans would have to have their own “protest” by not buying tickets and populating the stadiums, taxpayers would have to put their foot down on local governments providing bond money for stadiums and/or providing tax breaks, folks would need to stop buying NFL jerseys, hats, shoes, whatever, etc., etc.   I can guarantee you, IF the money were to dry up, there’d be a change

Grown men playing a kids game, making million and thinking they are all that. Not so in my mind. Don't watch football anyway.

Tango; All,

My estimate is that JERRY JONES won't put up with this FOOLISHNESS. - IF I'm wrong, the COWBOYS can kiss me ADIOS, as I will neither FORGIVE nor FORGET.

Lot of truth here.....

Plus, people will not really boycott (games or sponsors).
They will make excuses as to why they still support "their" team.

LOL

J. J. Will allow druggies thuggies and players that crash cars and kill  fellow team mates after drinking and partying.

You seriously think HE will slap um down for kneeling.

Too funny. J J is all about the money.

I dont think we will see a full blown boycott.

But ENOUGH fans are speaking with their wallets that the nfl are feeling it.

Freedom of speech does not mean freedom from consequences.  The owners can discipline the players who kneel or otherwise disrespect the flag.

That said, the Flag Code is just that, a code not a law.  Same with the traditional standing for the anthem.

As a veteran, this stance by the NFL players pisses me off.  It was supposed to be about cops shooting unarmed black men.  I guess shooting unarmed white men and women of any color was fine with them.
A well balanced breakfast, being necessary to the health of the nation, the right of the people to keep an eat cereal shall not be infringed.  Now who gets the ceral, the breakfast or the people?
Sure I'll shoot your Glock.  Just hang it with the rest of the targets.

Steelers offensive lineman Alejandro Villanueva, a former Army Ranger, stood toward the front of the tunnel at Chicago’s Soldier Field with his right hand over his heart during the anthem while teammates were mostly out of view behind him.

Villanueva jersey sales have seen a spike over the past 24 hours, ....gee I wonder why

AKM-47,

Villanueva is 100% correct & the rest of these "protestors" & the MORONS who "kow-tow" to them are HATEFUL FOOLS & UNFIT to be associated with the NFL.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH doesn't include the right to play professional football.
