    He never did have an arm. So without his legs he sucks anyway.

    Mobile quarterbacks are fun to watch but they never seem to last very long.

    I keep waiting for these rich actors and athletes to actually do something to help the cause instead of just stirring the racial pot and fixing nothing.

    Kappy makes $19 million a year. Maybe it's time for him to put up.

    Two possible reasons why...... He doesn't want to spend his own money for an issue that isn't that important to a lot of people......and likely most people won't even pay any attention to such "public service announcements" AND he's getting far more attention doing it this way.....

    It may be construed as "disrespecting" the flag.......but that is just part of exercising the freedoms we supposedly have...... We don't all have to agree on everything....but in an "open and free" society we are all going to be exposed to things we consider to be "disrepectful"..... That's just part of the deal......

    No. He's just another big mouth that will stir up the fellas, but has no plan or advice on how to fix the mess. Someone let him know that it's their upbringing, or the lack of.
    And he'll never put any of his millions on the line for the cause, heck no.

    Makes me wonder why it's become traditional to sing the National Anthem before all the games?
    They are just games after all, for some people it's serious as :shit: but really it's a game for some its a business for others
    So how was it we started applying Nationalism to a game?
    Seems silly to me when I think about it, we do things without thinking about it.
    Some promoter had to be behind it all.
    He needed to link paying for a seat to patriotism.:shrug:
    If you coming to my stadium, your a good American I guess.

    Im sure you are a patriot and nationalist once a month.Why anyone would have a problem with the National Anthem before a US sporting event is beyond me.I guess you and Pilot must have a problem with it.To each their own,I guess.

    heck if it wasn't for sporting events, you would practically never hear the National Anthem

    Donald Trump wants to make America Great Again
    Colin wants someone else to do it
    Trump is putting his money where his mouth is
    Colin will soon be unemployed (hopefully not for too long because then Barry just wont count him as unemployed)

    Did I say I had a problem with it???......
    I "liked" his post because it raises a good question about why do we, as a society, link sports to patriotism by singing the National Anthem before a game......
    You seem to forget that part of living in a free country gives everyone the freedom to either stand during the national anthem or not.......those rights and freedoms are not dependent on whether or not you agree with them...... To question his patriotism because you're offended says more about your patriotism than it does his......

    Personally I couldn't care less about whether him or anyone else stands during the singing of the Natioal anthem..... That is something everyone has the freedom to deside for themselves and it doesn't infringe on any of my rights...... Also I couldn't care less about sports.....it's not about being a game anymore.....its a huge business driven by the greed of the owners.....its the farthest thing from being a "game"......
    I don't have a problem with anyone that finds entertainment in the spectacle or whatever choice of a song to sing as part of such activities...... So I'd appreciate it if you could refrain from "speaking" for me.....

    You're right about that.....so with that being the case, why all the fuss over it.??.... It really isn't anything more than another "wedge" issue to create division.......

    I've often told my U.S. Senator's offices and US Rep's office I want every bulldozer East of the Mississippi pushing DCGrad into the ocean. With every politician , lobbyist, and staffer in it.
