    I'm done with football. I can't stand what these players are doing today. We live in America and it's their right to protest. But it's my right to not watch them do it. So much drama everywhere from Hollywood to these spoiled athletes. It just sickens me. Where's the America I use to know?

    Yeah but your header should have read something more like, "NFL Kneeling Against Trump", or "NFL Kneeling Against America". I believe that the only people who support their movement are blacks and everyone else is getting turned off. I predict that they will soon discover that there aren't enough blacks to support their business.

    Your right. I didn't think it through. I would change it but it's not in my power to do so. I got really pissed off when I turned on the TV and started listening to Terry Bradshaw and the Fox crew.

    What we need now is a list of their advertisers so we can boycott them, that's an effective method of communication.

    Here we go, it's actually a pretty short list.

    I am doubly pissed off ! I really wanted to see Philly hand the Giants their 0-3 but I'm not watching. Bought a new American flag to replace the old one hanging outside my home and will not spend another penny on anything NFL.

    In London players took a knee for our National Anthem and stood and showed respect for God Save the Queen.

    Hey NFL. :fingure:❗️❗️

    Many men are addicted to this kids game but I'd like to think in time many will grow tired of millionaire athletes crying about about racism. I'm a big fan of Larry Elders talk show and he's sick of it too. And he's a black man for those that aren't familiar with him. Larry says racism isn't a problem in today's America. And he has facts and numbers to back it up. I will post some things on him as time permits.

    I love the game and Thanks to all who have served and sacrificed, I believe the players have the right to be heard. BUT I think they can find many more RESPECTABLE ways to do it instead of attacking the National Anthem and causing division.
    As much as I love the sport It won't be on in my home while this is going on.

    Yep. The top story was the asshats on the pregame shows. There is no chance that they all agree with this protest b.s., but they are too cowardly to speak out against it.

    They've been emboldened by their victim-hood status that has been sold to them by their Black President. Had Obama not been elected, we wouldn't even be having this fake (made up) problem.

    ANOTHER LIE FROM ANOTHER AFRICAN-AMERICAN, IN AN ATTEMPT TO STIR THE RACIAL POT.

    On one of the pregame shows, Randy Moss lied through his teeth about how at age 17, he was "hated on" because he was a black dude. What a bunch of lies and b.s.
    He lied through his teeth trying to tie himself to the racism b.s.

    Think about his for one minute.......
    Randy Moss is only 40 years old, at age 17 or younger, he would have been the most popular kid in the entire city because of his mad athletic skills. He would have been loved by the locals, that's for sure. And I guarantee you that he received nothing but positive press coverage in the newspapers.
    So he's trying to tell us that just 23 years ago, he was "hated on" because of his skin color? I call b.s.

    These assholes are trying to inject themselves into the racial victim-hood crap as though they were actually treated poorly, as though they grew up in the 50's or 60's.

    Randy Moss' lie is no better than the hands up, don't shoot lie.
    How pathetic.

    I feel obligated to say that I think that Trump made a huge mistake commenting about the Golden State Warriors getting their invitation to the White House rescinded. And I also think that he should have stayed out of this NFL issue.
    He has enough bigger issues to deal with. He's supposed to be above this kind of crap.

    The Giants are 0-3 and Odell is an idiot. Exactly what does acting like a dog pissing in the end zone about?

    Today Football owners and players gave a big FU to Trump.
    Only Cincinnati's owner was support the big Dope and God punished him with a loss in overtime to Green Bay.
