Will you boycott the NFL? With many players kneeling during the National Anthem ceremony, many have called for a total boycott of America’s favorite sport pastime. What say you?
Ban the NFL from TV
December 4, 2017,4:46 pm
Sorry but I stand with our Military MEN and WOMEN that have fought so hard for this Country and get spit on so you people can get on a knee and not honor and really have no idea how hard they fought for this Country so you would have the freedom to disrespect the freedom they fought for ??.
October 21, 2017,6:50 am
Yes since Kaepernick first dishonored our flag, nation, and Americans who died to give him freedom. He just never should have picked wrong route! Now, they are dead to many millions!!
October 18, 2017,5:50 pm
hell yeah who wants to watch over paid assholes disrespect our flag and country.boycott them and their sponsors and then the discovery channel show the abandoned stadiums on tv
October 18, 2017,4:01 pm
I will boycott All NFL and NBA exhibitions until the government forecloses on the facilities that was bought and paid for with taxpayer money or tax exempt bonds and then changes the NFL and NBA rent for the periods they use the facilities
October 18, 2017,3:45 pm
It saddens me to say I just buried my father whose coffin was covered with an American Flag who faught in the The Vietnam war who contracted cancer fighting for your freedom of speech and my husband and family served in the Gulf war as well . We no longer support NFL .
The solution to the problem is to keep the players in the locker till after the National Athem which is how it was done years ago. I would like to know what these rich people do when they get off their knee . I’m not allowed to protest at work so why are they allowed . There are many ways to protest and when you protest in front of the flag ; you make it about the flag and it seems to me that people confuse the difference between disrespect and freedom of speech . Go to North Korea and experience Freedom there and come back home and disrespect the flag .

Addionally, I hope congress acts quickly to take away their government funding and have them paying taxes! Those billions should go towards people who actually need it. The NFL just wastes that money on themselves. They don’t really care. Each team could have support centers or after school programs that help people become better in their communities. They could build rehab / counseling centers with their billions. They could work with local police and local leaders to try and make differences. They got a bunch of kids kneeling. How about the get a bunch of kids being better in school, out of trouble and being better role models.
October 17, 2017,1:50 am
Hollywood Weinstein and the NFL. They both get paid by the people while supporting millionaires to sexually harass, assault, rape, drugs, violence, dui/dwi, and more. They are protected overpaid, unprofessional, non caring celebrities. At least Hollywood is cracking down. The NFL can’t have zero tolerance because they pamper and are scared of their players who they know want to be criminals. Those millionaires could do more for causes, organizations and communities. They don’t. Oh, they took a knee. Clap, clap! How about actually doing, spending money and time towards something. They do a little just to promote the NFL and live off the very few players that make real differences. I’m done until they have zero tolerance punishments, actually make differences and have some patriotism for this wonderful country.
October 17, 2017,1:43 am
Thomas Ruwan you need to edit what you are talking about. Evidently you don’t know what you’re talking about because our our military personnel who are in the in NFL (national Felons league.).
October 12, 2017,10:50 pm
Yes, I love Football, however I H A T E the F.F.L!!!
October 11, 2017,10:15 am
Kitty and Keith how far up your butts does YOUR heads go? You both have to be Lind and I can assure you that if Pence had been a Dem not a word would have been said. Dems look at a couple of hundred thousand dollars is pocket change for Dems. Pull your heads out and join the Disfunctional Republican Party. People like you need a safe heaven!
October 10, 2017,8:43 pm
I think the NFL should lose their tax exempt status and the owners should pay their taxes and lose their ability to have taxpayers foot the bill on their stadiums. NFL and owners should pay taxes on ALL their income producing items, shirts, refreshment stands, etc.
October 10, 2017,7:36 pm
Yes nothing but rich black men who think they are entitled to more than the average American and blame whites for slavery. Slavery was worldwide at the time and abolished here first at the expense of almost destroying this country. Thousands of mostly white men gave their lives to end slavery. It is time to say thank you instead of you owe me. Can’t hold it against generations that were not even alive at the time. GET ON WITH YOU LIFE AND MAKE SOMETHING OF YOURSELF!
October 10, 2017,5:35 pm
Shame on them for not being grateful for what this country has blessed them with .If they hate this country so much why don’t they just leave to another and see if they will be better off. I doubt it. It’s the fans that makes it for them and without the fans nothing.
October 10, 2017,5:29 pm
I will continue my boycott; they need me more than I need them and it appears I am not alone.
October 10, 2017,5:02 pm
No subsidizing rich little boys & their papas. They should pay to play.
October 10, 2017,4:58 pm
I am done with the NFL how dare they do this more evidence that my generation had finally flipped their shit
October 10, 2017,2:41 pm
Saturdays are now my football days. Have completely turned off the NFL and I do not miss it one bit. Goodell is weak. He could have nipped this in the bud a long time ago just by enforcing their own rule. NO respect. I stand with the military and the police.
October 10, 2017,9:50 am
John: I 100% agree with England & Doug.
October 10, 2017,9:10 am
I stand for the American way and salute our flag and stand if you can cause some who have fought for your rights CANT why would you protest the vary thing that give you rights as a Marine this is a slap in my face therefore I’m out of the game of football
October 10, 2017,9:07 am
I would like to thank the NFL players for “Taking A Knee”. Initially I was upset like THE MAJORITY OF AMERICANS. After some thought I realized I’ve been brainwashed by the NFL my entire life. When we were children we idolized these players and as adults we spend our Sundays watching them. Now the curtain has fallen and we have been forced to survey our feelings. Can’t help but think how many hours I’ve wasted watching this charade. NO MORE!! Sundays are no longer football days in this house.
Now for the good news, I’m enjoying Sundays with my family doing whatever we feel like doing. Once again, THANK YOU FOR TEACHING THIS OLD MAN THAT I DON’T NEED YOU!!!
October 10, 2017,1:43 am
Thomas Ruwan is totally correct! I am boycotting NFL but mainly their sponsors!!! Thanks Jimmy Jones….cowboys should have done this on their own. Now I no longer respect them either. Been faithful fan all my life…74 now and no longer will care! Burned all my memorabilia because you are done NFL. You disrespected the very people who make sure your freedom is secure…..why? Because you think you must keep racism alive and kicking, well you are being kicked to the curb by millions of us whose family members fought and died for our flag and what it stands for. So get ready for payback!
October 10, 2017,1:17 am
Pence wasted thousands of dollars of taxpayer money for his little stunt. A pathetic man, just like his POTUS.
Conservatives like fiscal responsibility. Or so they claimed.
October 10, 2017,1:15 am
The National Football Losers are idiots.
October 10, 2017,12:40 am
I never liked football anyway. Now I will also boycott anyone and anything that supports the NFL, which now stands for, “NoFansLeft”.
October 10, 2017,12:07 am
I will boycott all adventures that.advertise on NFL games
Never to buy NFL junk again the players that disgrace our flag and country should.be banned from every game and Deported
October 9, 2017,11:44 pm
NFL rules state they will stand for the National Anthem, place their right hand over their heart and hold their helmet in their left hand. Maybe Goodell can’t read. He’s only paid $20M a year to run the NFL show. What a waste of flesh he is.
October 9, 2017,11:27 pm
Why are we paying them to disrespect us !
October 9, 2017,10:43 pm
Respect our country and use another time
October 9, 2017,10:00 pm
Will someone please explain to me how these people are oppressed.? Their entertainers making very good wages in a country who just had eight years of a black president.. .
I’m a 100% disabled veteran making below the poverty level because that’s all the VA pays me…
Stop freaking whining and be respectful.. and grateful and thankful
October 9, 2017,9:49 pm
50 years of watching the Cincinnati Bengals. Missed my first 2 games. I hope the NFL goes bankrupt. The multi-millionaire illiterate ingrates are disrespecting our country, our flag, our military, our police forces, all those who put themselves in harms ways for us, and those who gave their lives for us. All those people sitting in the stands and all those watching on television should know that these ingrates have never served our country. They are disrespecting your family members who have served and gave their lives for us. These ingrates are spitting in your face and taking your money. BOYCOTT UNTIL BANKRUPT
October 9, 2017,9:46 pm
The democrats must be stopped, their insidious agenda is permeating and destroying every crevice of America. They still did not get the message, we did understand their message, we just totally rejected their agenda! I guess we will send them another message in 2018… losing over a thousand elections was not enough to permeate that thick head!!!
October 9, 2017,9:43 pm
Ken, I’m with you. What gives her the qualifications to determine who is a Christian. The Bible says that we have to repent of our old life style, believe that Jesus was raised from the dead and have a personal relationship with the Holy Spirit of God. And there is a place to voice your opinion, and there is a time to stay quite. Only Fox gives both sides of the story, all of the others are liberal and one sided. Any group that is always fighting, burning stores and cars, protesting because they got their feelings hurt are not Christian. When we sell out to Jesus, we are not our own anymore, it is no longer about us, but what is right. It is not right to disgrace our flag, anthem or military. That’s all I gotta say about that. Good job Ken
October 9, 2017,9:22 pm
They are a disgrace to kneel. Fire them. End of story
October 9, 2017,8:06 pm
Roger… I’m in agreement with you that taking a knee is disrespectful, but pence reaction or order by Trump is not a solution… but it is for those that like to spend OPM… Other People’s Money.
October 9, 2017,7:51 pm
It seems some inconsiderate individuals forgot how we got our freedoms and who gave them to us with their lives. A lack of education is responsible by those parties choosing actions as such.
October 9, 2017,7:45 pm
Ken…I believe qualifications for being a Christian are to not judge others and accept others as we would like to be accepted. I still think this was a waste of money for Pence to make a big show and leave immediately. Don’t pidgeon hole me by saying I got my info from MSNBC or CNN… I watch a bit of all the channels but refuse to only watch FOX… I think it’s good to hear what everyone has to say… keeping me well rounded on info… you may want to try it. . When it affects my wallet, I take note, whether it be a Dem or Republican or Independant.
October 9, 2017,7:36 pm
Disconnected from a game I enjoyed all my life because athletes cannot briefly respect our nation in a simple opening ceremony. This leaves me with no other option, so I will no longer watch their disrespect and therefore will not watch their game. My game has been preempted by these posturing players.
October 9, 2017,7:31 pm
i’m glad that vp pence walked out of that game. that bunch of ingrate players need to be dealt with. like be fired or a cut in pay. they have no respect for this country or what the flag represents. they should have to do a tour of duty and maybe these over paid idiots would feel different. they think they are owed something because of the color of their skin. they need to get over it. the football field is their work place and should not be a political field. if they had a job and worked in another line of work they would be fired. which they should be fired anyway but there is no consequences to their actions. but the owners will be feeling the crunch as more americans boycott these nfl games.
October 9, 2017,7:30 pm
Traitors to kneel downfor our National Anthem. GoPence.We love you.
October 9, 2017,7:30 pm
Fake Indignation! Wasted hundreds of thousands of OUR dollars to put on a pre-arranged show.
October 9, 2017,7:02 pm
If these clowns were really serious they would take a knee during the game. They won’t do that because it will disrespect the game.
October 9, 2017,6:49 pm
Miss Kitty, I assume that you are going to cite CNN or MSNBC as sources for you statement that his actions were preplanned! As a retired submariner, I have to go with the others who take particular offense to the actions by some of the NFL players. Many years ago I had to explain to a young sailor that while he did have 1st Amendment rights, under the circumstances – being employed by the U.S. Navy, he left some of his rights behind as a provision of employment. In other words, he couldn’t just pipe up when he wanted to do so. If the NFL didn’t have rules in place that required their players to stand during the National Anthem, it might be a little different. One problem I have with the reasoning that folks like you seem to want to use is this – if the players are “just exercising their first amendment rights” & we boycott, we are bigots. Remember the first amendment doesn’t mean folks don’t have a right to make fools of themselves. It also means that we have a perfect right not to listen to them because listening isn’t required. I have been an NFL fan ever since our son was playing peewee football at 10 years of age. He is now 55. We started watching the NFL games so that he could learn techniques of the interior linemen. Now, Miss Kitty, I have not used personal name calling, just merely pointed out traits. Also curious. Who put you in charge of determining the qualifications to be called a Christian???
October 9, 2017,6:14 pm
This peaceful protest has nothing to do with disrespecting our flag of our country!
October 9, 2017,6:07 pm
I well stand for my country, flag an the President!!!!!!!!!!!!
October 9, 2017,5:55 pm
Kitty, those disrespectful, hateful, Un-American punks are AT WORK! Disrespecting million of paying customers! You, at your job, disrespect half your paying customers. Take your rule handbook and BREAK every rule you don’t feel like following! You have a right to be that stupid, but how long would YOUR employer put up with YOU? That is what they are doing! Why is that so hard for you to understand? All the left does is split, divide, and sew fear where none should exist. Without all the B.S. They have no reason to exist. That worthless Al Sharpton-prime example. Patriotism, love of country, Unity is NOT bigotry!!!! It is what all REAL Americans have.
October 9, 2017,5:30 pm
I STAND WITH THE UNITED STATES. LET THOSE PLAYERS WHO KNEEL GO TO IRAN OR IRAQ AND SEE HOW THE ARE TREATED.
October 9, 2017,5:25 pm
No more NFL till they do the right thing and STAND..to the SS Banner….
October 9, 2017,5:18 pm
I’ve been a Steelers fan since 1979. I haven’t watched an NFL game since the Steelers decided to stay in their locker room in Chicago during the National anthem. Enough is enough.
October 9, 2017,5:12 pm
And shame on bigoted people posting here. And I’m sure you think you’re good Christians…NOT!
October 9, 2017,5:06 pm
Agree with Pence boycotting by leaving the game right after the Pledge of Allegience? While this was preplanned by our president? What is this… reality tv? At a cost of hundreds of thousands of dollars to fly from Vegas to Indiana.. then back to the West Coast just to make a point? What happened to the real conservatives of the Republican Party?? Have you all forgotten what conservative means? It’s a dumb way to make a point by kneeling but even more stupid to follow Trump’s advice and leave early. Pence has shown he too is now a puppet as are others. Republican Party is going to fall apart. What would Lincoln/ Reagan do?? Not this. Shame on Pence. Dare to post.
October 9, 2017,5:03 pm

October 9, 2017,5:03 pm
I do not watch the NFL or pro Baseball any longer , any team that wants to take a knee can no longer be viewed as an American patriotic team in my eyes, when you disrespect our flag and our National Anthem you disrespect the men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice and that sacrifice is what allows us to live the quality of life we have in this great country and if these disrespectful retards can not stand then they can go broke for all I care…
October 9, 2017,4:56 pm
Every individual signed to play for an NFL franchise should be fired if they fail to render proper respect for OUR Flag ad OUR National Anthem. idiots like Colin Kaepernick set such a horrible example for our young citizens. Draft the cowardly bastard into the military and send him into Afghanistan, beard , big hair and all.
Dr. Thomas E. Davis, Colonel, USA (ret)
October 9, 2017,4:53 pm
GOD gave us brains to think with, not just fill a space in our skulls. These people (NFL) would not be as well off in any Country nor would the so-called mistreated Americans they complain for. What do they have to offer anyone anywhere except the physical attributes that GOD gave them? Ditch diggers, pole riggers, circus performers etc. maybe.
October 9, 2017,4:51 pm
Our American service men protected America during conflicts.
It’s time we, the people stand up for freedom and supporting
the beliefs of all true Americans against the nasty ball players.
October 9, 2017,4:44 pm
Absolutely! Such disrespect for our country and flag that allows these thugs to make millions of dollars and then slap your fans in the face! Boycott NFL and sponsors who are supporting this! Protest on your own time is you feel so oppressed why don’t you trade saleries with the vets! They are out there dodging bullets they are the real heroes!
October 9, 2017,4:39 pm
Keep fighting the pussys and Flamers.👍😀
October 9, 2017,4:36 pm
IT’S A SMALL PRICE TO PAY … TO STAND UP AMERICA….. Footballers want to protest…they are free to do so. Not on my time and not on my dime. I buy a ticket to watch them play./…/… not protest their own political views or opinions. dang them!
October 9, 2017,4:11 pm
these footballers obviously have NO CLUE or EDUCATION in history and how they got their FREEDOM to run-a-round on a big lawn and throw a Dead-Pig around 4money!!! TAKES ALL THE FUN OUT OF IT !!!

October 3, 2017,8:07 pm
It’s Monday night and here I am enjoying a good football game. Love the NFL!
October 2, 2017,9:08 pm
Yes we should all Boycott NFL
We should also. Make quota s for players 10 whites one minority get some humans playing
October 2, 2017,4:46 pm
I saw this posted on another site:
“Dear NFL Player:
“You graduated high school in 2011. Your teenage years were a struggle. You grew up on the wrong side of the tracks. Your mother was the leader of the family and worked tirelessly to keep a roof over your head and food on your plate.
Academics were a struggle for you and your grades were mediocre at best. The only thing that made you stand out is you weighed 225 lbs and could run 40 yards in 4.2 seconds while carrying a football. Your best friend was just like you, except he didn’t play football. Instead of going to football practice after school, he went to work at McDonalds for minimum wage.
“You were recruited by all the big colleges and spent every weekend of your senior year making visits to universities where coaches and boosters tried to convince you their school was best. They laid out the red carpet for you. Your best friend worked double shifts at Mickey D’s. College was not an option for him. On the day you signed with Big State University, your best friend signed paperwork with his Army recruiter. You went to summer workouts. He went to basic training.
“You spent the next four years living in the athletic dorm, eating at the training table. You spent your Saturdays on the football field, cheered on by adoring fans. Tutors attended to your every academic need. You attended class when you felt like it. Sure, you worked hard. You lifted weights, ran sprints, studied plays, and soon became one of the top football players in the country.
“Your best friend was assigned to the 101st Airborne Division. While you were in college, he deployed to Iraq once and Afghanistan twice. He became a Sergeant and led a squad of 19 year old soldiers who grew up just like he did. He shed his blood in Afghanistan and watched young American men give their lives, limbs, and innocence for the USA.
“You went to the NFL combine and scored off the charts. Your hired an agent and waited for draft day. You were drafted in the first round and your agent immediately went to work, ensuring that you received the most money possible. You signed for $16 million although you had never played a single down of professional football. Your best friend re-enlisted in the Army for four more years. As a combat tested sergeant, he will be paid $32,000 per year.
“You will drive a Ferrari on the streets of South Beach. He will ride in the back of a Blackhawk helicopter with 10 other combat loaded soldiers. You will sleep at the Ritz. He will dig a hole in the ground and try to sleep. You will “make it rain” in the club. He will pray for rain as the temperature reaches 120 degrees.
“On Sunday, you will run into a stadium as tens of thousands of fans cheer and yell your name. For your best friend, there is little difference between Sunday and any other day of the week. There are no adoring fans. There are only people trying to kill him and his soldiers. Every now and then, he and his soldiers leave the front lines and “go to the rear” to rest. He might be lucky enough to catch an NFL game on TV. When the National Anthem plays and you take a knee, he will jump to his feet and salute the television. While you protest the unfairness of life in the United States, he will give thanks to God that he has the honor of defending his great country.
“To the players of the NFL: We are the people who buy your tickets, watch you on TV, and wear your jerseys. We anxiously wait for Sundays so we can cheer for you and marvel at your athleticism.
“Although we love to watch you play, we care little about your opinions until you offend us. You have the absolute right to express yourselves, but we have the absolute right to boycott you. We have tolerated your drug use and DUIs, your domestic violence, and your vulgar displays of wealth. We should be ashamed for putting our admiration of your physical skills before what is morally right.
“But now you have gone too far. You have insulted our flag, our country, our soldiers, our police officers, and our veterans. You are living the American dream, yet you disparage our great country. I am done with NFL football and encourage all likeminded Americans to boycott the NFL.”
October 2, 2017,4:33 pm
I have commented on this issue before which follows: I grew tired of the NFL years ago with the constant player Jungle Boogie Antics on the field of play after every hit, catch, score, etc…… Even if they’re losing by 40 points they act like Animals. You can keep the NFL and their Sponsors…..
October 2, 2017,11:47 am
I’ve finally had it with the NFL, they’ve taken the fun out of the game and dishonoring the true meaning what America stands for. Besides, being overpaid compared to the men and women risking their lives fighting for our country.
October 1, 2017,6:01 pm
My Kind of American? NOT!
Like the initial piece that I had seen by Jerry Jones (owner, president, general manager of the Dallas Cowboys), I was highly impressed with what Clark Hunt (CEO and owner of the Kansas City Chiefs) had said. I thought that it was about time someone had the guts to take a stand on this respect for the flag matter. I further thought, “Wow, I may have a new favorite NFL team! How is that for leadership? Here’s is what Clark Hunt said until I found out that it was also fake news.
Mr. Hunt called a meeting with all of his coaches, players, and field staff and firmly told them:
“You are all simply paid performers on a stage and that field is my stage! You will stand with your hand over your heart and with respect when our Country’s National Anthem is being played, or you will no longer be a Kansas City Chief, a coach for the Kansas City Chiefs, or have any association with the Chiefs organization! I will immediately fire you no matter who you are! You can make your political statements off the field, but when you’re employed by me, and I’m signing your check, I demand that you make our fans proud and not embarrass them.”
Then, I saw the photos about the Kansas City Chiefs and was disappointed and depressed as I was over the antics of the pseudo-America’s Football Team—the Dallas Cowboys. They all make me sick to my stomach!
Now, for shame, I am totally upset with Clark Hunt, who I thought was a real patriot and man of conviction. No more! He is just like Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys. When are these rich owners and leaders going to show a bit more patriotic behavior? This issue is not about freedom of speech, and it is not about racism. It is about displaying respect for the flag, respect for our country, and respect for the national anthem when someone sings it at football games. It is about honoring and respecting our warfighters, our veterans, our fallen soldiers, and our military heroes who have come home with missing limbs.
These rich, spoiled football brats are disrespectful of our nation and everything for which it stands. They play their stupid game and do not realize that they can do that and make big bucks only because of the sacrifices (some ultimate) by our military men and women who protect our liberty, freedoms, safety, and security. Hence, I say, professional sports figures should either shape up or ship out. The fans will do it for you by boycotting your silly games.
October 1, 2017,3:29 am
Football is a Dying Sport
If National Football League (NFL) Commissioner Roger Goodell has any brains left, he should warn all of the players, coaches, and owners that they are playing with fire. They had better shut up and stop trying to convince people that it is not an American Flag and National Anthem issue. It is a respect for the flag and anthem issue! It is not, as they try to say, a race and free speech issue. Baloney!
Even Colin Kaepernick said in a video that it was a flag and anthem issue. You all are going to lose BIG TIME if you keep up what you are trying to do. If the football players were poor folks as we are, that would be one thing. However, these spoiled brats are millionaires and some many times over multimillionaires. They are not deprived. They are privileged elitists trying to hoodwink the American public into believing that they are “poor is me” folks.
Please shut up and pipe down, now, and start playing football. Do not ever bring politics back into sports. Politics have screwed up so many segments of our society and professions that it is beyond sickening. Please cease and desist or kiss the NFL goodbye. You all are a worthless, useless bunch of spoiled rich people. Get out of our lives! This post is from a Texas United States Air Force (USAF) veteran who has washed the NFL and Dallas Cowboys out of our lives forever. Football is a frapping joke!
The only time I would ever think of taking a knee is if I would do what George Washington and Tim Tibow have done, which is pray. However, the dishonest media/press soundly chastised him for simply praying to God. I pray to God our Heavenly Father to save our nation from the NFL folks who want to destroy it. Instead, we shall destroy all of you for your stupidity.
This 75-year-old World War II baby is blind with rage at all of those stupid, traitorous, un-American, anti-American football players who cannot do anything but chase a stupid ball around the field and beat up on each other. What a wasted sport. Abolish football and force these spoiled brats to go get real jobs. Idiots!
Additionally, I am incensed that those idiots on the Pittsburgh Steelers made a mockery of one of our Veteran brothers, i.e., Alejandro Villanueva. That lousy coach Mike Tomlin got on Villanueva for doing the right thing. If the rest of the idiotic Pittsburgh Steelers had come out of the tunnel to stand next to Villanueva, the Pittsburgh Steelers would be heroes today. Instead, they are nothing but a bunch of fools. The rest of the team and stupid coach Tomlin are all bigots and racists for picking on a National Hero, Alejandro Villanueva, who is the only good one of the bunch. I hope the Pittsburgh Steelers have a losing season this year!
October 1, 2017,3:17 am
I am a Vietnam Veteran and I am a Patriot. I support our Constitution and Honor our Flag. These NFL dudes have no concept of our Constitution nor respect for those of us who served and they won’t even stand to Honor our Flag. I have no use for them or their team and feel they should be fired for their lack of support of our Country.
September 30, 2017,7:14 pm
tell them to get off their knees and do something to help.. like be a role model, that shows something other then an overpaid footballer.. participate in these kids lives..
coach their sports .. show them what an American stands for .. LIFE LIBERTY AND THE PURSUIT of HAPPINESS and that we all have equal rights to do so !
September 30, 2017,6:30 pm

rebecca Did you know, Colin Kaepernick Donated $25,000 to Group Honoring a Convicted Cop Killer? Did you know the first slave owner in America was a black man? Did you know after reading your rants, you sound just like Anthony Johnson (the first slave owner and first black man to sell slaves in America). I take it you are black, well I am too, but I have done my homework and you skipped class that day. You know as well as I do, that the NFL protesting of the anthem and flag is not about the police brutality or a race thing. It is about disrespecting America and all of the heroes that have given their lives so you could jump up and down and scream. I welcome you to leave the country if you don’t like it here. Your just like all of the actors and others that promised if Trump won the presidency, they were going to leave. Funny, absolutely none have gone. Still here with the same old crap coming out their mouth. I am glad to finally have a president that calls it the way he sees it and not afraid to stand up to people like little rocket man, unlike Obama, who was scared of anyone who come against him. Remember his favorite saying was “I will lead from behind” Cowards hide behind. Finally, A president that will lead from the front. Another thing that I bet you don’t know, because the media makes it sound opposite, but There are a lot more of us African-Americans that support President Trump than they let on we do. I am for the flag, the national anthem, president Trump and I am for “BLACKS AGAINST OBAMA”

AMERICA FIRST! My family will BOYCOTT everything from NFL not even watching on TV. Our Nat. Anthan, Flag, Veterans come first. All this idiot had too many BUMP in the Head with HATES. AMERICA FIRST/GOD BLESS…
September 30, 2017,2:06 pm
I was just thinking…..Maybe the players should take a knee and protest men and women using different bathrooms. Unfair to Transgender Fans and other fans that aren’t sure if they’re a male today or a female.
September 30, 2017,1:46 pm
I will not be watching NFL Football this year IF any player takes a knee!! If NO PLAYERS TAKE A KNEE….. I may reconsider watching on a case-by-case basis,
September 30, 2017,1:40 pm
Every citizen has the right to protest, but, if how you protest gets more attention than what your protesting your doing it wrong!!!
September 30, 2017,1:07 pm
Obama divided our country and the libtard mainstream media MSNBC CNN and local news are keeping it alive. As for cry baby snowflake Kap, He sucked as a QB anyway, but the second he started this crap and he didn’t get slammed for it yet Tim Tebow took a knee to say a prayer and because he’s a Christian They Crucified him. Huge Distortion of morals and values that these libtard morons have, is truly disgusting. They are there to do a job and yes freedom of speech but you don’t bring politics into football just ruins it for everybody and if they don’t like it here they don’t want to respect our flag then get the heck out you can find somewhere else for your able to make the money that you’re making, won’t happen. I’m surprised they’re not saying that Russia is behind all of it. Lmao oh and Rebecca you don’t know what you’re talking about. The minute that those owners feel it in their wallet they will put a stop to it and the second I see any other teams while I could care less about basketball I love baseball football and hockey and they start that crap they’re all gunna feel it eventually trust me on that one Money Talks baby girl.

bodaki Not only am I done with the Patriots,(been a fan since the early 60’s) I sent Bob Kraft my old Pats hat with a note. You want to make a statement? Do the same for your team. You can find the owners address on google. Oh yes, almost forgot, he also got a dollar bill taped to a stick. On the note it said,”your new flag”.
September 29, 2017,11:35 am
Seriously. You people are stupid. The NFL is not going away. Boycotting the sponsors is beyond idiotic. All that does is hurt the economy. You are pissed off because you think the NFL was disrespectful of our national anthem. They engaged in a nonviolent protest. The national anthem is a symbol. Some people respect it. Some don’t. You cannot force someone to show respect. Being done with football makes you idiots. You always blame the black race for everything. That is history. It goes back to the days of slavery. White people just think they are better. But look who you voted in as president. An idiot. Just so you have no illusions, I am white. I have 2 college degrees. I worked until I retired. And I can spot an idiot when I see or hear one. For what it’s worth, you people are ridiculous. Grow up!
September 28, 2017,6:41 pm
Been on team facebooks trying to talk sense into the diehard sports fans, that we have to boycott in order to save American Football from sliding into a failed pit. Conclusion is folks, that plenty of people only stand during the anthem in order to get a better lview at the entertaining spectacle. it has nothing to do with flag & country. So the new Left Football League may have enough left League fans to keep it afloat long enough to think they can do away with the American fans and survive. About like the Democrat party…
September 28, 2017,6:40 pm
The players who “take the knee” during the national anthem are losing fans for their teams, thus they are LOSERS!
September 28, 2017,5:34 pm
I’m done with football. The protest will solve nothing. Our law enforcement will always legally shoot black men if they break the law. And sometimes they will have to kill black men in self defense. It will take more than dropping to your knees to change that. Why doesn’t Kapernik protest the poverty of black people under the Democrat Party. Dems need blacks to stay poor to get votes. Oabama, our first black president put millions on welfare. Oabama never said a job was better than public assistance-not one time!!!!! He hurt his own culture. Well, half of his culture. Obama is half white just like Colin Kapernik. 85% of black children still live in poverty. It was 70% under George W. Bush. Obama committed the ultimate black on black crime. And you’ll only here about it from Conservatives.
September 28, 2017,1:57 pm
I just got off the phone with Gatorade Pepsi Nike Frito-Lay I called all the corporate offices and let them know I’d be boycotting their products as long as they’re advertising on the NFL I recommended other folks do that too
September 28, 2017,1:08 pm
I am already boycotting the NFL. Now I am boycotting their sponsors. Yesterday I did not buy any Frito-Lay products when I went shopping. Other people I know on social media are not only boycotting but are calling sponsors to voice their view and that they will not be buying their products. We split up the sponsors and I took Marriott. I am platinum with Marriott including 2 weeks of time shares. I will call them and let them know that on my next trip in 2 weeks I will not be staying at any Marriott properties. One other thing you can do is when in a sports bar, have them set aside 2 or more tvs and have them show other sports besides the NFL.
September 28, 2017,12:31 pm
Disrespect for the national antheam can’t be tolerated. These so-called nfl “heroes” are without any sense of civility, decency & national honor. BOYCOTT THE NFL!
September 28, 2017,5:01 am
Thier arrogance disrespects our true American heroes. It cannot be tolerated. They have done nothing for thier people but teach them rebellion and separation. They must be taught a lesson. If NFL can’t American citizens will. Boycott everything NFL. This includes continued sponsors. Funny thing I always associated kneeling as a symbol of surrender and submission. That confirms my thought about these players. They are lowlife little B*t***s
September 28, 2017,3:20 am
Give them hell baby. I sincerely hope the NFL crashes and burns.
September 27, 2017,11:21 pm
they have the money to protest any place other than the field. BOYCOTT AND NO MORE MONEY FOR NFL FOR THEIR STADIUMS.
September 27, 2017,10:35 pm
Stopped watching. No Fan League. Military. If they can’t stand for the flag, national anthem, country and all my friends, battle buddies and comrades in arms who have died and come back maimed don’t deserve my loyalty, my patronage or my money. Losers, whiners, and complainers. Perhaps they ought to put their money where their money is and step-out and mentor and support a black young man and steer him in the right direction. But first these players need to set the example in their own behavior.
September 27, 2017,8:54 pm
I called the nfl office and gave them an ear full. I love football but hate these self indulging players !!
September 27, 2017,8:48 pm
BOYCOTT ALL NFL TEAMS AND THEIR SPONSORS. DO NOT BUY ANY MEMORABILIA OR ANYTHING ASSOCIATED WITH THESE MORON HYPOCRITE NON-AMERICAN NFL KNEELERS.
September 27, 2017,7:45 pm
@Terry it’s Saul Alinsky and you are right .
September 27, 2017,7:21 pm
Kaepernick is taking his play call from the Machiavelian play book & Solinski “Rules for Radicals”!
Read up and follow the path they are taking.
Very tragic, indeed…
September 27, 2017,7:14 pm
I believe that Sports is a way to get away from politics religion black and white. If they want to protest they have the right. Just like I have a right to hand in my season tickets which I have done.4 tours in Vietnam and I’m losing my legs. If they want to protest go ahead but not at the expense of the flag that I bought for and the national anthem that every Soldier has fought to Preserve.
September 27, 2017,5:41 pm
Cancelled my NFL subscription and haven’t watched a single game. So over these crybabies
September 27, 2017,5:39 pm
So proud of the fans burning their jerseys and posting on YouTube

September 27, 2017,3:16 pm
BY the way when these plays signed the contract, It sates that prior to the game every player should stand at attention with right hand over the heart and helmet in the left hand by their side when the national anthem is sang .if not a fine will be charged or suspension.
September 27, 2017,1:32 pm
The comments on this “news piece” seem even nastier than usual for the CBC.
Could that be because the majority of the NFL players are African Americans? Or because the point of the protest was the justice system failing to convict police who shoot first, then fabricate an excuse, especially when a person of color is the deceased?
Couldn’t be that CBC stands for Conservative Bigots Clan, could it?
Nah. No racial bigotry showing in this comments section. Nah.

September 27, 2017,10:44 am
Fk the NFL! We don’t need overpaid ENTERTAINERS who no longer entertained us when we have H.S. football. Last Friday I watched St.Rita’s crush Mt. Carmel….I am attending High School games now and I am not even a parent… it’s all about the thrill of the game. I will stick with the kids who honor and respect our flag and National Anthem. Adios NFL!

September 26, 2017,10:59 pm
I will never again watch the NFL. As far as I am concerned they are traitors and enemies of the state. I’m totally ashamed and shame on the NFL!!!!! I hope they go bankrupt and forever be erased from Americas history.
September 26, 2017,10:47 pm
Cut off ALL Government tax dollars to the NFL, then we’ll see if they kneel or not for the Anthem
September 26, 2017,10:44 pm
Unaccetable lack of respect to this country’s values and its symbols. These acts should be punished by law. And don’t give me that freedom of speech crap cause is a value you liberals have no respect for.

NFL & PATRIOTISM, what’s it all about?
Before a preseason game in 2016, NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick sat down, as opposed to the tradition of standing, during the playing of “The Star-Spangled Banner”.
During a post-game interview, he explained his position stating, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.”
In the 49ers’ final 2016 preseason game on September 1, 2016, Kaepernick opted to kneel during the U.S. national anthem rather than sit as he did in their previous games.
The above represents the provenance of our current situation which appears to be the cause as to why some appear to reflect disrespect for our flag and the singing of our national anthem.
The reason, as expressed by Mr. Kaepernick, is based upon what he characterizes as the oppression of people of color.
His perception appears to have its roots embedded in the shootings of some black men by police officers. He doesn’t appear to include in his “thinking” that white men have been shot, as well.
Some of these shootings may have been justified and some may not have been justified.
The adjudications of these shootings may or may not have been correct.
There are approximately 330 million people inhabiting our nation.
Through September 25, 2017, 730 Americans have been shot and killed.
That reflects 2.2 incidents per one million. Whereas any unjustified shooting is an abomination, one might think about the fact that there will, always, be anomalies. Of the 2.2, some were justified, some were not. The shootings include all races and ethnicities.
Anyone who believes this or any nation is an example of perfection is incredibly confused.
Mr. Kaepernick’s extrapolation from these shootings to conclude that the United States of America oppresses people of color could be characterized as illogical and convoluted, at best.
Mr. Kaepernick was not and is not the real cause of our current situation. The problem appears to be due to the irresponsibility of the general manager of the San Francisco 49ers.
A football stadium is a place of work for football players and staff. As such, management establishes rules and protocols.
When Mr. Kaepernick first sat, the general manager should have established that all will show respect for the flag and the national anthem.
The 1st Amendment does not apply to the workplace.
The blame, for this ridiculousness, stupidity, and divisiveness, must be shared by the ownership of the 49ers and by Mr. Roger Goodell, the Commissioner of the NFL,
The media, especially CNN, with MSNBC a close second, has exacerbated this insanity by promoting racism as the major factor. Don Lemon of CNN said that “taking a knee is constitutionally protected”. The producers and the legal department should have known that is an incorrect statement and apparently meant to inflame this phenomenon.
An extremely serious question should be asked; why did CNN’s legal department allow that statement?
The media is demonstrating that yellow journalism is an ugly tool that they will not hesitate to use.
Fair minded people of all ilks must be demonstrably outraged.
A rational solution to mitigate the damage done would be that Mr. Goodell and the ownership of the 49ers issue a joint statement apologizing to the nation for massively mishandling this matter.
This mishandling by the 49ers and the NFL leadership appears to be caused by a combination of ignorance and stupidity which can be reversed by a sincere mea culpa, whereas certain media cannot utilize that path due to their apparent agenda, bias, and vicious premeditated intentions.
Next time, I will offer greater clarity, i.e., what I really think.
The FCC should be admonished to review this matter with great urgency, diligence, and sincerity.

September 26, 2017,9:54 pm
I’m a veteran and when anyone takes a knee instead of standing during the playing of the Nat’l Anthem every person who has worn the uniform is being disrespected.
September 26, 2017,9:51 pm
By all means!
September 26, 2017,9:48 pm
And of course I won’t boycott the NFL as I enjoy watching football. Do not enjoy watching/reading all this political garbage.
September 26, 2017,9:39 pm
Why don’t you do a poll asking about who had donated to hurricane relief? Who cares about a bunch of athletes standing or kneeling….certainly not the people in Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, Houston or the keys!!!
September 26, 2017,9:31 pm
Loving college football even more.
September 26, 2017,8:59 pm
They can SAY what they think they are protesting about, BUYT HOW IT IS preceived is WHAT IS IMPORTANT, and we see it as DISRESPECTING the FLAG AND OUR COUNTRY!!
September 26, 2017,8:42 pm
Bob Uda is 100% right on this . The communist party has infiltrated everything in our country for decades and why we cannot get an iota of justice , it needs to be called out upon and why there is no longer good vs bad or right vs wrong. The Chinese & the Russians COMMIE ways needs to be stopped. The AFL-CIO & federal DOL signed up with the lib dems, disenfranchising real Americans and our ways in lieu of illegals & all downhill since. The NFL being the latest in caving in to Anti-American propaganda.
September 26, 2017,8:12 pm
they put the last nail into their coffin it will be along time before they see good ratings again, it will have to stop and they will have to make apologies, if not nfl and any other sport who makes their protest during the anthom will be doneas ive said before they need us we dont need a bunch of over paid cryabies trying o ake a point while disrespectingour men in the military and in blue
September 26, 2017,7:57 pm
Professional Sports Disrespect the Flag
Let us put this issue in perspective. When I were on active duty in the United States Air Force (USAF), if I were to pull such a stunt on the job as these athletes do, I would probably be slapped with an Article 15 of the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ). Sitting or kneeling when they play the National Anthem and the American flag goes by, I must salute it. I want to salute it. If I willfully disobey and show disrespect for the American flag, I would suffer the consequences. Additionally, when I worked in the Aerospace and Defense Industries, if I were to pull stunts that were disrespectful to the American flag, the management would probably reprimand and punish me in some way.
Now, these athletes are on the job to perform before large audiences. Why do they have a different standard than most other Americans? When I go to a sporting event and they play the National Anthem, I stand and place my right hand over my heart. It is just showing simple respect for the flag and for our nation. Additionally, it is simply showing respect for all the men and women who made the ultimate sacrifice or lost limbs during wars while protecting our rights, liberty, and freedom.
What it all boils down to is that when the leaders, e.g., National Football League (NFL) Commissioner Roger Goodell, team owners, and coaches support such display of disrespect, it is no wonder the players will keep doing it! Now, even little league football players (little kids) sit down during the playing of the National Anthem and raising of the American flag. What a disgusting bunch of spoiled brats and irresponsible parents, coaches, and owners. This is why our society is so screwy these days. I just hope people will stop attending these jokes of sporting events—sort of like the Oscars, Emmys, etc. Everything has gone political and downhill.
Professional athletes provide a poor example for our children and grandchildren. I say boycott all professional sports! I do not watch any sports any longer. I stopped watching and going to games three decades ago. I hope more people will wise up and stop the terrible sportsman examples they are to our posterity. Is it not ironic that when pro footballers kneel during the National Anthem, the liberal media praise them? However, when high school football players kneel to pray during a game to ask God to minimize injuries, the liberal media chastise them, and the school administration fires the coach. Something is very wrong in America.
Good! I say cancel all teams coming to the White House. It is just a waste of time, energy, and money anyway. The president of the United States (POTUS) has more important things to do than to deal with some of the losers who think they are champions. They are just a bunch of overpaid idiots.
Cancel them all, President Trump. The NFL, National Basketball Association (NBA), team owners, coaches, teams, and players are un-American and anti-American. Cancel all White House visits. It is an honor and privilege to visit the White House. Do not let those ingrates come to the White House and tarnish that sacred place. They all disrespect our American flag, disrespect the White House, disrespect our military warfighters, disrespect our nation, and disrespect our POTUS. Screw them all! Invite only groups that show respect instead of just being a bunch of overpaid spoiled brats. The owners association should fire Roger Goodell for inflaming all of this disrespect! Keep out the scumbags!
I call all good, honest, patriotic Americans to boycott all NFL and NBA games and anything related to putting our dollars into the pockets of all of those spoiled brats and anti-Americans. Do not buy tickets. Do not purchase any sporting wear, goods, or services. Do not watch their games on television. I have stopped watching all sports, everything that Holly-weirdos put forth, and all of these mentally deranged, evil people. Stop watching ESPN. Screw them all! I support President Donald J. Trump—the greatest POTUS in U.S. history!
Ever since the Liberal-Democrats (Lib-Dems) injected politics into Hollywood, Holly-weird has gone off the deep end. Do not watch the Oscars, Emmys, etc. Ever since the Lib-Dems injected their politics into science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM), we have the greatest hoax of the century in Global Warming. Ever since the Lib-Dems took over our mainstream media (MSM) and press, we now have the lame-stream media (LSM) and errant press disseminating fake news and propaganda.
Ever since the Lib-Dems took over our colleges and universities, we have student protests and vandalism that have destroyed our education system and generate dumb-down students. Ever since the Lib-Dems have taken over our professional sports, we have idiotic players disrespecting the flag and the military. Ever since the Lib-Dems have taken over our courts, judges make political decisions and legislate from the bench. We have suffered through a corrupt Department of Injustice (DOI) over the eight miserable years from 2009-2017.
America and Americans, the Lib-Dems are destroying our society by injecting politics into everything good and decent and are infecting everyone. We have nothing but political correctness (PC) garbage, Black Lives Matter (BLM), police assassinations, Anti-fascist (Antifa), illegal aliens bankrupting our cities and states, increasing Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) attacks, and a destructive Democrat Party causing the Deep State to work at destroying our country.
Wake up, fellow Americans, and fight back. Our country is at risk from these enemies within taking over control. We must not allow the Lib-Dems to destroy everything President Trump is doing to Make America Great Again (MAGA). These disloyal, un-Americans are working 24/7 to destroy our beloved country. Let us not allow that to happen!
September 26, 2017,7:46 pm
I have done this for years!
September 26, 2017,7:45 pm
Here we go… People who are taking money from our pockets, a ridiculous amount of money, whining and crying about how horrible life is here and protest it by flipping the bird at those of us paying them… They lack the intelligence to realize that their “protest” hasn’t a thing to do with the reality of the situation. “the llaaaand of the freeeeee, and the home of the brave.” We must protest this, it’s racist and mean. Give me a break! But we get imbeciles like rebecca calling us “racist,” and comparing us to slave owners. Perhaps rebecca could enlighten us upon why the NFL players are “protesting.” Particularly why disgracing our national anthem constitutes a protest. I know, I know… I won’t hold my breath.
September 26, 2017,7:45 pm
Rebecca: When liberals don’t have an argument, they use terms like “racist”. Pathetic. As for college degrees, these people are not necessarily intelligent. Colleges make sure they graduate for notoriety purposes to lure promising high school athletes to their college. It’s all about the $$$. Don’t kid yourself. If the National Anthem or the American flag insults you, there are plenty of other countries in the world that may be a better fit for you. You are welcome to leave anytime.
September 26, 2017,7:44 pm
I have already started the boycott. I didn’t wait until now.
September 26, 2017,7:43 pm
Dallas Cowboys: America’s Football Team? NO!
I was so impressed with Jerry Jones (Owner, President, and General Manager of the Dallas Cowboys) when I saw the below piece. However, then, I found it was fake news. When I saw Jerry Jones on television kneeling with linked arms with his bratty, high-paid kids, I knew for sure that it was fake news. However, it sounded good. To wit,
Jerry Jones went into the locker room before the Cowboys Giants game Sunday. He looked around at all the young men and addressed them as a group. “Regardless of your personal opinions, this is a sacred day that we recognize the sacrifice and pain that so many have endured. When the National Anthem is played by a lone trumpet player in a few minutes you WILL stand and you WILL put your hand over your hearts.”
Jerry waited a second and made eye contact with several players to make sure his words had sunk in. He knew he had their undivided attention and proceeded. “You gentlemen are world class athletes, but you are also actors. You perform on a stage that is 100 yards long.
Today, you play the role of a patriotic super hero. You will play this role well because you know that millions of children will be watching and looking at your example.” Then his inner fire started to shine through as he said quietly “but most of all I want you to remember, you are the actors, but this is MY stage and you will play the role I tell you to.”
When I first read that, I was so impressed with Jerry Jones. However, now that I found out that Jerry is just another rich football team owner, I am disgusted with him. I hope he has a losing season and go broke for disrespecting all of our fallen warfighters and those who came home with missing limbs. They also disrespected the American Flag, the National Anthem, and our Nation. He and all his people should apologize for not acting like the above fake piece. He needs to restore our faith in him and the Dallas Cowboys. From a fellow Texan who is very disappointed in the supposed “America’s Football Team.”
September 26, 2017,7:36 pm
Rebecca, let me help educate you!! These snowflake players for the most part IQ is very low. The horrific reason is they were pushed thru our school and college system and treated with entitlements without a true education. The professors were told by the coaches to pass them no matter what. It’s called money !!!They are not ALL educated as you may think. Sounds like you aren’t either which shows how out of touch you really are little girl!! Do your research before you speak again, you sound very foolish!!
September 26, 2017,7:35 pm
Rebecca, your bad manners are showing!
September 26, 2017,7:35 pm
I would like to see the NFL abolished or unfunded so they go bankrupt. The federal government subsidizes building all of those huge, expensive football stadiums and coliseums. Two senators are introducing a bill in Congress to withdraw all funding of building new stadiums. That is a good move to make the NFL go broke.
Commissioner Roger Goodell is much overpaid making $50 million a year. What a rip-off! He is not worth $1 million a year! Goodell is incompetent; thus, the owners’ committee should fire him for inciting his spoiled, rich football brats to inject politics into sporting games. What a bunch of losers!
Get rid of football. It is a stupid sport where they run around with this stupid ball and beat up on each other. That is like terrorism. Kill the sport. Too many quarterbacks and running backs sustain brain injuries because of the constant pounding to their heads.
You must be stupid to do that just for a few million bucks per year and end up the rest of your life like Muhammad Ali, OJ Simpson, and all of those young professional wrestlers dying from injuries, killing others, or committing suicide at a young age. It is not worth it. Congress should outlaw football and basketball!
If those idiots keep it up, you are beginning to see the death of professional football and basketball. Get rid of the NFL and NBA unless they learn how to act right and fly straight like those in NASCAR, AL/NL, PGA, NHL, WRA, et al. We have nothing but riffraff in the NFL and NBA. Get rid of those sports and force those spoiled brats to go get real jobs that require an education to think on their own instead of being dumb jocks who receive too much compensation for doing stupid things.
The sad thing about all this is that the rest of the Pittsburgh Steelers team and their lousy coach got on Alejandro Villanueva and made him feel so bad that he apologized on national TV for doing what he did. He said he made all the others look bad. I believe that they turned things around and have it backwards. The coach and rest of the team should apologize to Villanueva, who was the only patriotic, loyal one to the flag, the national anthem, and to the nation.
The rest of them were cowards. They are trying to make the good person as the bad person. That’s what happens when you deal with a team and coaches of losers. If they all would have come out and did the same as Villanueva, the entire team and coaching staff would be heroes today, smelling like a rose, and praised by the media. It is very sad what they did to poor Villanueva. They are all a bunch of real cowards and losers. They will have a losing season for their awfulness.

Talk about racist. Each and everyone of you on this comment board come across as racist. You were fine when your teams were playing, winning and keeping their mouths shut. But let them have an opinion or take a stand and you are ready to lynch them. Sorry Billy Miller but most of these players have college degrees, are intelligent; which is more than I can say for you, and definitely deserve whatever monies their agents contract for. Just the threat of serious injuries alone make the money worth the risks. The national anthem is a symbol like many things in America. Some people respect it; some don’t. But just because Trump says “bravo” DOESN’T MAKE HIM right. Why isn’t Trump focused on the important things concerning our country? He is wasting time with a protest that has absolutely NOTHING to do with him or our country. You people who are commenting on this site sounds like fools. GROW UP. It’s really none of your business, especially since you don’t know the details of WHY the NFL players are protesting or even what has happened. You just jumped on the bandwagon. Like slave owners did long ago. Idiots!
September 26, 2017,7:24 pm
I have had it with these over paid snow flakes. None of them would have survived a year in Nam where I was in 68.
September 26, 2017,7:23 pm
I never did understand Season Tickets . Why fo to watch a game when you can’t see all of the plays ? Watching on TV is far better because the camera brings you right to the play and score ! But now I am having second thoughts of even watching any NFL games at all. Fact is I never did have a favorite team” to begin with. If you care to do a check you will find out that most of these players never attended a creditable college and many entered the NFL with criminal records and many were in trouble with the law AFTER they signed on with contracts in the millions . Check it out.

By-the-way folks what is this all doing for our children? They were born rebellious, (as the pro sports people are behaving, right?), and have to be taught. This is encouraging and enforcing their negative behaviors for a non-essential, entertainment. Besides the United States has not come to grips with the communist teachers union and the teachers who backed Jimmy Carter, (and got a Department of Education created for it), Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, and Hillary of course. They are brainwashing our children at this very time and that to extinguish righteousness and replace it with “politically correct” ideology. Children are not growing up looking for work to survive, they are growing up to rebel and overthrow, they are entitled to do that. The public schools here in this country have the highest paid teachers brainwashing thousands and thousands of illegal immigrants to overthrow this government and let the socialist-communist govern them, so then everybody will get free medical care, free education, etc., at the expense of those who work. Pray for our President to continue to stand against the rebellion. Pray for our leaders to be righteous, not politically correct and tolerant of evil. Pray God will have pity and mercy on these United States and open the eyes of the unregenerate. This is the Lord at work in our generation. All those who believe should be encouraged, the Lord is in control of all of this. “For it is written, ‘As I live, says the LORD, every knee shall bow to ME, and every tongue shall give praise to God.” We are at war in this country for the values and rights of all, not for a few who want it free and/or have lots of money. The media isn’t the majority view like they pose, it’s a minority (communism at work), and reflect and project those same communist views, overthrowing the government with propaganda and divisiveness. Look up folks, “straighten up and lift your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.” Especially, if you believe in the Lord Jesus Christ! PTL!
September 26, 2017,7:12 pm
I stand for the national anthem in respects to all those men that died keeping our country Free! I would gladly take arms and defend my country and even fight for those that neal and belittle our country because, I’m proud to be an American and I’m proud of our great country . Love it or leave it the choice is yours ! Stand Proud!!!!
September 26, 2017,7:11 pm
Have been for 3+ years
September 26, 2017,7:11 pm
Lol,,,I noticed that the owners are “sucking up ” to these un-American “kneelers”.
I guess that they are terrified that they will go out on strike and demand more of those unearned millions they already are collecting. BOYCOTT THE NFL……..!!!!
September 26, 2017,7:08 pm
Martin, your my new hero for the day. Those people who speak out of turn do not want to know the truth as you stated…they can’t handle the truth!!! Its far more cowardly to speak as they call us racist or speak foolishly about the world today. Cesar Mendoza sounds like a very foolish little boy….please someone hand him his popsicle back!!
September 26, 2017,6:53 pm
I WAS TOLD THE AVERAGE I Q OF THESE PLAYERS IS BELOW 70, THERE STUPID BABYS. NO MORE N F L.
September 26, 2017,6:53 pm
People –file a class action suit against the NFL -they does not care about anything but their MONEY -NFL hoards criminal players–where is the respect? The only thing the NFL will understand is LAWSUIT–sue them for the Taxpayers money being abused by the kneeling players–Refund our MONEY for the stadiums you created, destroyed, rebuild, etc…all on the taxpayer’s dime
September 26, 2017,6:47 pm
Cesar Mendoza– Just listen to how stupid your comments are. Fist of all you don’t know the difference between a person being killed and a person being murdered!, as for all the unarmed people shot and killed by a policeman or woman, who are they? Are you talking about criminals caught in the act and resisting arrest? They were killed by failing to follow the law, if they had a gun, knife or even a fake gun , they caused the shooting to happen, had they followed the law, stopped and obeyed the officer, they would not have been shot. Now the gang shootings in Chicago that kill unarmed civilians are murder. The sniper that killed five Dallas police officers ( protecting a BLM protest) that was murder.
And yes stuff like Michael Brown was fake news!
September 26, 2017,6:40 pm
The National Anthem
The lyrics come from “Defence of Fort M’Henry”, a poem written on September 14, 1814, by the 35-year-old lawyer and amateur poet Francis Scott Key after witnessing the bombardment of Fort McHenry by British ships of the Royal Navy in Baltimore Harbor during the Battle of Baltimore in the War of 1812.
So you trying to tell me that you cant take a knee to a poem?
The flag is an object!
There is still FREE SPEECH here in America!
You are making a big deal out of this why?
The NFL will go on without narrow minded Fidiots!-Foolish Idiots!
Now if they were trying to take away our Freedom then that’s another thing.
However the only folks trying to take away our freedom is is these dimwit nut-jobs!
September 26, 2017,6:30 pm
no more n f l, if that`s the kind of retards that play, the game I refuse to ever watch another game, fuck these baby boys. semper fi, fuck the, n f l.
September 26, 2017,6:30 pm
I’m gone from NFL. Amazing how much I got done this weekend and Monday while NOT watching football. I’m strictly college until they take a knee or disrupt a speaker.
September 26, 2017,6:30 pm
I do believe that is the same flag that flown when blacks was being lynched in the country in the south the same flag that flown over restaurants that blacks could not enter the same flag that black soldiers fought for in world war 2 only to come home and be treated like a animal yet German prisoners was treated better that flag is just a piece of material with no value or honor under that flag land was stole from the Indians as far as boycott go ahead if black peoples was to boycott just one week in this country and spend no money then you will see some power and another thing without black players there is no NFL or NBA or MLB how come no body get made at Mexicans, Chinese, Koreans, they don’t fly no American flag in business or homes they don’t honor flag but nothing is said
September 26, 2017,6:25 pm
I’m guessing that 95% of these players have absolutely no idea what this protest is all about. And if you ask the average guy or girl on the street I’ll bet that 99% of them don’t know what the protest is about. Last year Colin Kaepernick said “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people, and people of color.” I wonder if he was talking about all those multi-millionaires taking a knee at Sundays games. I still cannot figure out how having a bunch of rich football players disrespecting the flag of a country that has given them the opportunity to waste their money on custom Lamborghinis and Escalades helps their cause. Kaepernick was protesting police brutality. Okay, so how does anything these players are doing now going to change that. It doesn’t. Maybe these players can use some of the money they spend on fancy cars and jewelry to help the kids in the inner city. Since the NFL seems to agree with the protest they should put a portion of the billions of dollars they make to help these same kids. I don’t want to generalize because I see and read about a lot of players that are involved with their communities. But imagine what could be done if the NFL would take the lead and organize a plan to bring communities together with the police in their neighborhoods. I just have a hard time sympathizing with a bunch of millionaires and billionaires holding hands because they feel that the country that has offered them the opportunity to live a lifestyle beyond their wildest dreams. And who are they protesting in front of – Joe Lunchbucket who has to work his butt off to pay the hundreds of dollars it takes to go to a game. Then after the game the crowds pile into their old cars and drive home to their apartments and homes while the protestors get into their limousines or fancy sports cars to get back to their mansions. What a bunch or ignorant, selfish pieces of crap they are if they for one minute think I care about them. If they ever decide to actually do something that will make a difference you can count me in. Otherwise, just shut up and play football.
September 26, 2017,6:19 pm
Narcissistic, self grandizing, ungrateful brats! Disrespecting the National Anthem, our Military, and our flag! I dont think so! Fire them all, let them stand in line with Kaepernick. Ungratful piles of weasel poo!
September 26, 2017,6:12 pm
As I never really liked football to begin with, this is an easy one for me. As soon as that first jackass dropped, that was it for me.
September 26, 2017,6:07 pm
The American people need to come together and unit to boycott the NFL and break them down once in for all. And any other sport team. They are here because of your money.
September 26, 2017,6:05 pm
Haven’t tuned into an NFL game since last year’s players posturing became more newsworthy than the game.
September 26, 2017,5:59 pm
The only people who care what NFL players think about public policy are their equally dimwitted groupies. Besides, if the average NFL player’s I.Q. were one higher, he’d be a vegetable.
Partisan political commentary has no place in the workplace, and that includes the NFL. I’ll never watch another NFL game. NEVER. EVER. I’m done with these single-digit-I.Q. maggots who think they have a clue about anything, esp. public policy.
September 26, 2017,5:57 pm
I will not be watching any more sports unless they start acting like ADULTS & AMERICANS !! there is NO excuse for anyone disrespect
September 26, 2017,5:57 pm
Owners are at fault by not stopping this in the first place. Rules should be in place that employees shoul follow and if it’s not you are terminated. It seems like the employees are setting the rules and the employer must follow. Love the game but not watching anymore.
September 26, 2017,5:43 pm
Your survey is so defective. Ask the question Would you support the police murdering unarmed citizen? That would be more accurate than your present question. You criticize the news on paper or TV as being “fake news” and you are doing the same. This players all respectful of the flag and National Anthem are calling your attention at the problem with the police murdering too many unarmed citizens, don’t you think that you solving the problem instead of “faking newsing” it?
“fake news”‘ and you are guilty of the same with that question that does not present the problem.The police is murdering unarmed citizen! Shouldn’t we be solving the problem instead of misrepresenting the problem?
September 26, 2017,5:43 pm
I have no use for people that live in this great USA suck it dry for all they can get then turn there backs and say trash need to be deported to a poor country where they have no future
September 26, 2017,5:41 pm
My pleasure Gregory. I try my best not to get on this social media stuff. But, we have a bunch of socialist communism because of Obama and his corruption of demonic doings to our country!!! Insane leftist…they will be driven out if I had my way….GO TRUMP!!
September 26, 2017,5:39 pm
By the way Stuart Varney said that the NFL is being subsidized by $1.1 Billion in taxpayer money, Goggle it. It needs to stop. Pro sports are suppose to be entertaining.

September 26, 2017,5:33 pm
YES I AM ,WATCHING COLLAGE BALL INSTAD.
September 26, 2017,5:32 pm
Yes I will because they are disrespecting our flag and our country that the men and women faught for and are still fighting for!! That is not freedom of speech!! It makes me very ill when I see these idiots burning our flag and not standing up for our flag and claiming freedom of speech because that is not what freedom of speech means!!! If they don’t like the way things are going they need to go to another country and see how far that gets them
September 26, 2017,5:30 pm
Hey Jill, this country was torn apart by the last 8 yrs of Obama destroying this country. Her goes to the funeral of that kid who robbed a store tied to fight a cop then tried to take his gun and got shot. Sorry the kid died but if he’d of just done what the cop asked him to do he’d be alive. How many white people died and Obama went to there funeral, exactly zero. He tore this country apart and Trump is trying to give America back to Americans. Why is that so hard for you libtards to understand this? When Obama wafted to close the borders during his campaign or Hillary said she’d close the borders as of 2014 and that’s ok but Trump is doing it and now it’s not the American way? Screw the NFL or anyone who brings there own political views into what i pay to watch line sports. There’s a place and time for things and if you’re at work entertaining me we may have different beliefs but I’ll still support your profession as a player until you disrespect my country and flag that represents our country. I don’t have a platform to voice my opinions so I have to email, write and make phone calls. Why are these athletes any different? Through every thing Trump has tried to do all the libs have done has been to obstruct without coming to the table with any answers of there own. Why, because they failed during the last 8 yrs to accomplish anything and now they’re trying to blame Trump, jyst like it was Bush’s fault for everything Obama dealt with the 1st 6 yrs. Libs just take away our freedoms, tax the he’ll out of us and try and make us believe everything they want us to so they can live large and the rest of us have too work to pay for them to party and call it a meeting because someone said the word oil so it must be a right off not a party.
September 26, 2017,5:30 pm
I would like to put a knee on Trump’s neck and a flag pole up his ass. Maybe that would be violent enough for him.
September 26, 2017,5:29 pm
I have been a fan since Y.A. Tittle. I turned them out of my home last year and as long as these jerks disrespect America , I will not watch their games , buy any league products , buy goods from their sponsors and will let them know that they can keep any girlie boy antifa fans they have.
September 26, 2017,5:29 pm
I will boycott NFL and my family. In case Ms. IDIOT Jill might read up on rules and regulations of NFL. IN NFL REGULATIONS JILL THE IDIOT. It ststes they WILL STAND FOR OUR FLAG AND ANTHEM. This has nothing to do with blacks…its called respect for our Flag, Police and Military!!! More black men kill black men then police kill black men. And one more thing Idiot Jill!! Blacks commit more crimes then White people…do your homework or better YET move to IRAN YOU IDIOT!!
September 26, 2017,5:27 pm
The National Anthem is not the time or place for protests!!! If you want your voice heard, that is what press conferences and interviews are for!!! They have them after every game!!! I am a United States Air Force Veteran and so is my oldest Daughter and we come from a very long line of Veterans dating all the way back to the Revolutionary War including my Sister and her Daughter and my Brother!!! We are all very offended by what is going on because we proudly server our country so that you didn’t have to!!! You have all these rights because of millions of families just like mine!!! Just because you have the right to do something does not always mean it is the right thing to do!!!! Or the right time!!!
September 26, 2017,5:24 pm
Charles Sever: The American Flag, the Stars and Stripes is not a statue,it’s not a National Park it’s the blood of our patriot who gave their lives so we can be free in this world. When these liberals descrate it, they are not respecting our Patriots who gave their lives for us to live free. Could you imagin storming those beaches on the shores of France in WWII, but they did. I believe like President Trump the SCOTUSA needs to look at this again, so we the people can stop this maddness. We lay the Flag over the caskets of our deceased that are coming home after giving thier all. To me they are the ones who are being disrspected and we have got to stand up for them because they can not. Think it started out protesting police over blacks not complying when pull over or confronted, they either ran or pulled a gun.
September 26, 2017,5:24 pm
All you NFL black players have no respect towards a human being decency. You say you are kneeling down for a reason. But you are only trying to go against our president because he respects our veterans and the morals and values the flag stands for. You poor poor black people have it so bad to where you have no idea what it means to struggle in life because you Have money coming out of your ass but yet don’t have to worry about nothing in life the playing a fun game and getting paid over $19 million a year to stand on your knees. Our president has spoken and you all should be fired. I am done with the NFL and the Denver Broncos you have disgraced yourself and embarrassed yourself on the half of United States. You know I don’t really are showing how to be stupid but you are teaching young children how to be disrespectful rude and just stupid on the morals and values of our United States flag. You have no right treating the game like it’s nothing to worry about because I for one I am boycotting you so are my children because you have this honestly proven you are disrespecting the veterans that I’ve gave you this opportunity for your freedom of speech. Abraham Lincoln died for saving The black people from being slaves which the first owner of slavery is him what a black person so who is racist now. Y’all need to grow up because I think over half of United States are done with your bullshit. I am seriously thinking about burning all of the NFL bronco stuff I have just because I don’t want to see you no more you guys are so sad so pathetic go break knee so you can’t kneel on it.
September 26, 2017,5:24 pm
Jill to make a point or difference. Use their money and influence to change these communities. Do you see them giving back to their communities. Taking a knee does nothing but teach disrespect and more killing. All they have to do is stop and show respect to aurthority. These NFL players are committing murder of these young people(not the police) Disrespect is the problem
September 26, 2017,5:23 pm
,Maybe the National Football League can become the AAFL,the Anti American Football League.
September 26, 2017,5:19 pm
Jill, youre an idiot!! Freedom of speech is BECAUSE of the flag!! Without the men and women who died and fought for this country, there would be NO FREEDOM OF SPEECH!! GET IT!! Use the brain you were given!! The National Anthem is not the time for protest unless you’re protesting America and all it stands for and if that’s so, then you should leave the country!! Bye bye NFL.
September 26, 2017,5:19 pm
No I will not. The First Amendment is about being able to speak your mind they’re not hurting nobody by there’s quite protest disrespecting no they’re trying to get a point across and what better time to do it while everybody is watching. You have far too many police officers that have gotten gun happy and it needs to stop. You don’t hear about white folks being shot. Open your eyes people. Boycott NFL no way I hope they get there point across. Police brutality
September 26, 2017,5:17 pm
My post hasn’t shown up, am I being censored
September 26, 2017,5:17 pm
Isn’t it interesting how folks like our Trump hating,Anti American friend Jill wants others to shut up,but wants HER free speech to tell Bannon to shut up.
September 26, 2017,5:17 pm
Jill, you know not what you speak of.! It was a big deal last year before President Trump became president. There hasn’t been unity in this country since Obama was in office!! He was the worst! The NFL has the right to protest, and I hope they put their millions of dollars behind them and do something with it. But they should do it on your own time not when they are on the job!!
September 26, 2017,5:17 pm
Jill .. go jump in a lake in NoKo
September 26, 2017,5:07 pm
No I will not boycott the NFL because it’s called freedom of speech. And if our president would keep his nose where his nose belongs it would not have been such a big issue but our president did that so the media wouldn’t be on the White House clan. Divided we stand with the president that we have there is been no unity since he’s took office. And you trump fans know it. And Steve Bannon need to take a back row seat and shut up.
September 26, 2017,5:06 pm
September 26, 2017,5:06 pm
Next thing we’ll have a “Marxist”OR “Islam terrorist” running for President? We have gone way to far to the Left …and I want Patriotism and hot dogs Plus families at N.F.L games instead of what’s wrong with us? I don’t believe are police are abusive !!
September 26, 2017,5:04 pm
the NFL can go to HELL! and take ESPN with you.
September 26, 2017,5:03 pm
We will not watch any NFL game. or any TV station reporting on NFL games.
September 26, 2017,5:02 pm
The democrats insidious agenda is seeping into every aspect of our lives. Play the damn game and not political activism on our fields. And the democrats keep wondering why they lost over a thousand seats since 2012. I guess we will have to send them another message at the ballot box next year. Maybe we will get healthcare repeal in with over 60 republican senators!
September 26, 2017,5:01 pm
YES!!!The other sport are beginning to join in, even the ignorant women’s soccer team! They can all lose their jobs!! Any group that disrespects our flag & anthem are spitting on the graves & in the faces of every man &woman that has served to keep this nation free! For those that don’t like our flag, anthem & or our President that has been working undoing the destruction wreaked one this nation by the traitorous immediately past administration then leave! Join Madonna, hopefully Obama will end up being charged for some of the treasonous acts he committed like all the millions he gave to Iran. May he rot in some other nation!
September 26, 2017,5:01 pm
To those few posting nonsense about this involving a “right to protest”, please do re-read the First Amendment. If you want to use the “rights” argument, at least know what you’re talking about. Note that it speaks about what Congress can do to regulate speech, not what some non-governmental entity can do. The fact is that every organization, volunteer, private, even governmental, can regulate your speech. Don’t believe it, try jumping up and shouting inane slogans during a State of the Union Address. Try parading around your private workplace with placards. Try using coarse language while serving burgers at McDonalds. All of which is to say that these morons should be shut down by the NFL (and by the team management as well) for using a business event as a personal platform. Even if they didn’t show disrespect to the country, its citizens and its heritage, they would be wrong. But blatant lack of respect and thankfulness for the country that gives them their freedom and their right to make big money playing a game is childish. And that from athletes who supposedly have a college education.
September 26, 2017,4:59 pm
I am appalled at all pro sports persons for their arrogance & hatred for this nation, its government, elections, and codeenforcement. We love the games & teams we grew up with. And we respect the right of all persons to voice their concern with issues but these elite athletes have not only become arrogant and disrespectful but they show they are ungrateful. Some are calling themselves Christians but they are also ungodly & unregenerate and blind to the fact that God has designed all this to show He is the Master. We started boycotting when it all started with CK but now we have expanded to NBA & any others that might think we aren’t as good as they are, especially when they call us racist & fascist, etc. It’s the communist & socialist, who call themselves liberal and democratic, fooy, they are dividing this country so they can change our constitution and government. This includes the global, one world government thinkers also. This world belongs to the Almighty! He gets all the glory!
September 26, 2017,4:54 pm
The players that disrespect the country that allows them to play a game, get paid big bucks will not get my support by watching their games in person or on TV, so they can receive a zillion dollars for playing the game, buying NFL products or any other way they want my support financially.
My husband put his life on the line for twenty-one years for their freedoms in the U.S.Army and this is how his service is being honored. The men and women in uniform haven’t received the financial rewards for their service. They don’t get recognize or rewarded for their blood, sweat and tears.
September 26, 2017,4:53 pm
I have no sympathy for a group of over paid little bitches that feel there has been some kind of injustice done to them. Fact #1 I’m 60 now and as it stands,there is no one in my life time in this country that has been short sjerted except the white people . Fact ! If anyone had done there homework. The fact is that whites are shot and killed twice as often as any black , and thank you you simple minded little fucks . All lives do matter as a fact but until you can act like you are out of the jungle and partisapat as a normal group of Americans then guess what ? How many whit people did you see robbing stores in Louisiana and Florida? I have friends world wide sending me videos of the upstanding people here in America looting stores with a headline MIB hmmmm and you want respect?
September 26, 2017,4:52 pm
They haven’t a clue as to what they are protesting. Truth is per capital cops do not kill more blacks than whites.
The biggest killers of blacks are BLACKS!! BLM is a phony issue.
September 26, 2017,4:51 pm
I spent 3 years on and off a US carrier, they should be made to work the flight deck, then they would have some to crab about. I won’t watch a game, won’t goto
or buy any clothes with NFL on it.

September 26, 2017,4:48 pm
It’s amazing one man, a privileged man at that, who was raised my white parents, started this whole fiasco. Now he has all of these misguided sheep following and for what? Didn’t I read recently that he left our country and “went home” to Africa. Obviously he really didn’t believe in the cause but rather wanted 15 minutes of fame which seriously backfired on him. A word of wisdom to those misguided sheep…..before you follow the leader make sure are not lost because you might find yourself at the end of a dead end street. MAGA!!!!!! Yes I will be boycotting any sport AND sponsor that follows misguided sheep.
September 26, 2017,4:45 pm
Hell no. stop whining like pansy liberals snowflakes.

You are now being boycotted for your sponsorship of the NFL and there kneeling disrespecting America.
September 26, 2017,4:44 pm
YES!! BOYCOTT!! to bad these millionaire NFLers feel so entitled
September 26, 2017,4:43 pm
Wake up NFL and show some respect to the vets that have fought for this great country I will not watch football any more baseball is starting to look real good you’re pay is about to end are you happy now or better yet the bad ideas you’re teaching our children smarten the he’ll up before you’re out of a job
September 26, 2017,4:41 pm
I will boycott any NFL team whose owner supports the idiot Trump.
I will boycott the NFL because I do not enjoy seeing people literally damaging their brains for entertainment.
I will not boycott when they knell during the national anthem to protest the outrageous rate of police killings of unarmed people of color.
Those of you who find the protest offensive might want to relocate – to Russia or North Korea, perhaps. There compelled “patriotism” is the norm.

Hell I turned them off last year! These whinny black millionaires want to really help blacks, why don’t they invest in their hoods with a company to give them jobs and put money into the schools? Or is it because you want white folks to give them sh!t for free? Or is it you know they’ll steal your company blind, cause most don’t want a job? Yes I know there are really good people in there that work their ass off and be greatfull for the chance, but it’s the others that like being on the slave farm the demonrats have them on? Piss on the NFL and their sponsors for allowing this false narrative to go this far! No More Money! Chant that!

The original reason why a knee was being taken during the National Anthem being played was to make a statement against Police Officers and the way the Black population were being depressed in the United States. For anyone to fail to stand during the playing of the National Anthem and face the American Flag with their hand over their heart are showing their disgrace of the Flag, the United States and those who are and who have served to defend their very liberties and freedoms that they have. If they have a message or something to say to President Trump or to anyone about anything; then they should pick another method and venue to speak their mind so that their message is clear and so that they are not hiding behind all of their Teammates and the 1st Amendment of our Constitution of the United States that they kneel against; knowning they are protected in their cowardless silence as compared to those that served to give them their freedoms, liberties and rights. You just cannot say afterwards that your kneeling was not what we believe it was about, that it was only about what the President said. Well, the President was not even talking about you until you decided to make it about you and you decided to take a knee. If you want it to be about what the President said, then use the microphone and the press to make a speech against what the President said. You do not go out and offend an entire Nation.

Let’s not forget, that blacks, asians, Indians, muslims, etc, have ALL died protecting this country. NFL brats claiming they are terrorized?????? Really?!? What a freaking joke. CHILDREN. Put these babies in the Alaskan wilderness and tell them to make a fire to keep warm. They would die in less than a week

I am boycotting the NFL for a few reasons. A few years ago there was this quaterback, Tim Tibow was his name, maybe you’ve heard of him. Well, Mr. Tibow knelt in prayer while he was on the field. That act of prayer, which was his right to do, lead him to be verbally assaulted and attacked by many people including the “higher ups” in the NFL. Mr. Tibow was told to that he was there to play a game, and that his personal views and values didn’t belong on the field. Then yesterday, a former Army Ranger and current Pitsburg Stealers player, stepped out of his teams locker room and honored the flag, he exercised HIS RIGHTS, and I was so proud of his decision. A day later, he is having a press conference apologizing for making his team and coach look bad. So, I am left to believe that he was baggered and bullied into changing his stance. If you believe these men have a right to take a knee, then the two men I just described have a right as well, but alas that is not true anymore. This is what is causing ME to boycott the NFL.

As an American and Veteran, I detest the actions of the NFL.
September 26, 2017,4:25 pm
I already began my boycotted a week ago.
Don’t miss it in the least and now I found NASCAR
It Is terrific !
September 26, 2017,4:23 pm
There are other places to protest other than during our national anthem! They are doing a job it is very disrespectful to paying fans! And service people who died fighting for our country shame on all of these overpaid childish temper tantrum throwing players and the owners!!
September 26, 2017,4:22 pm
Those claiming they are suppressed and hunted should be sent to another country with terror and suppressed people….when they come back they will be on knees thanking God for this country they live in!
September 26, 2017,4:22 pm
I will boycott these spoiled rich children who show no class and no respect for our country. They should face the flag and put right hand over their heart and stand up straight while the anthem is being sung. If you can not do this the get the HELL OUT and are not REAL Americans.
September 26, 2017,4:21 pm
The NFL needs us (fans) and our money! We don’t need the disrespectful NFL!
September 26, 2017,4:21 pm
NFL really stepped in it this time! IDIOTS!!!!
September 26, 2017,4:21 pm
I will definitely boycott the NFL. Never again will I allow the NFL in my home. Countless others are doing the same. These people make millions of dollars from the freedoms they have in this country, and yet they SPIT on our military and our flag. Our national anthem and flag represent countless dead bodies of those who fought for their right to throw a ball around so that they could drive Mercedes, Lexus, planes, etc. Let them try to make that kind of money in ANY OTHER COUNTRY.
September 26, 2017,4:20 pm
Even one of those kneeling should be drafted and give them an M-16 and be sent to the fight over sea
September 26, 2017,4:17 pm
No I will not boycott the NFL. Everyone in this country has a right to peaceful protest. I will boycott politicians that want to demonize people for exercising their first amendment rights.
September 26, 2017,4:17 pm
Paul Williamson, I hope you never need a cop or first responder with your attitude….
September 26, 2017,4:15 pm
I will not boycott the NFL. Peaceful protest is what America is about. The symbol is the flag. The message behind that, is what we are protesting. Black lives do matter. Cops cannot continue to hunt and gun down people of color. And real Americans recognize what it means to live here and why we have the Constitution. Only deplorable POS would think the stance taken by those in the NFL and others, are wrong in any way. Be upset at the reason for protest, not the protest itself. Anything less, is anti-American and deplorable.
September 26, 2017,4:13 pm
Paul, guess you are in the 4%. The rest of us don’t agree with you.
September 26, 2017,4:13 pm
I love my Country & won’t Support anyone that disrespects our Flag or Our Veterans or the ones that gave their life fighting for our Freedom!
September 26, 2017,4:12 pm
I’m boycotting now,no more.
September 26, 2017,4:12 pm

September 26, 2017,4:09 pm

September 26, 2017,4:04 pm
They are showing no respect for the ones that gave all an their life’s

Learn how Antonin Scalia helped change America’s courts forever in our interview with his friend Bryan Garner, author of the new memoir “Nino and Me”!
“It’s the economy, stupid! Millions of American workers will be seeing the signs of America’s comeback in their paychecks in February. Very simply, your paychecks will be much bigger, because under our tax cuts you will be keeping more of your hard-earned money.”
