MY sentiments exactly. These spoiled morons, acting as if they are doing something important for our country, while they live a lavish lifestyle and play a game, in order to make millions, need their collective asses kicked. Same with actors and actresses, they know nothing of real sacrifice, and they, along with the rest of everyday citizens owe EVERYTHING they have to those who fought for our country and in honor of our flag and our way of life. Respect our country and the flag, after all where would you be without it? It's the right thing to do. They are just a bunch of attention whores cashing in on a new way to pretend to be impportant.

Good point.

I don't think most people enjoy seeing protesters at a sporting or entertainment event. Expecially, when it involves the national anthem.

This is why you honor the flag by standing during the national anthem.

I'm sure you're standing at attention in your living room at the start of every game...right.



Manufactured patriotism and hysteria. 

AwesomeTattooedDragon --- 22 days ago -

This country has been very good to those athletes- they're making money most of us can only imagine- instead of taking a knee during the anthem, they should share their paychecks with those they're supporting. 

AMDG --- 22 days ago -

Personally I don't think it is too much to ask of any american to stand up during the anthem - If for nothing more that the ideal that it stands for.

Also one of those ideals is the freedom of expression - so while I would want all to stand for the ideal of America - I also have to support the rights of those to use it as a protest.

If that protest has legal repercussions - that is their decision.

I also think the POTUS making an issue of it at one of his rallies - is pandering to the crowd and his base, and does not help anything. 

Im Incognito --- 22 days ago -

^^^^^^^^
I agree. The Pres needs to learn to control his emotions. 

jackass --- 22 days ago -

Violating 18 U.S. Code ? 227 is punishable by a fine or up to fifteen years in prison.

I don't recall the anthem being played prior to the football games airing, the exception being the SuperBowl.

Perhaps I am wrong and just very inattentive... 

SagaciousSighFiGurl (Mod) --- 22 days ago -

I thinks it innappropriate to use this particular method of protest at the games. Here's why. The football field is their work, they're doing their job on that field. It's what they're paid for. And to make millions of people subject to your protest just bc you have center stage and CAN is juvenile behavior and grandstanding at its finest. People paid money to see you do your job, not disrespect the national anthem bc you don't like certain things about the very society that makes you rich or bc they want your take on political/societal issues.

Make signs and go protest in front of your local police station. Write letters, engage in your local communities, protest to your hearts content there.

Who of any of us can protest political and social issues while at work?? No one, if you actually want that job...;)

AMDG --- 22 days ago -

DJT is getting exactly want he wanted out of this - he is at the center of a media storm. And it doesn't require any real governing.

It is only a major issue because he made it one 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 22 days ago -

I guess the millions of people who believe its an issue are wrong? 

AMDG --- 22 days ago -

I guess the millions of people who believe its an issue are wrong?

the millions of people who believe it is an issue today - didn't give it a whole lot of thought about it until Trump lit a match to it last friday - and the players responded on sunday -

before that a few did it - and most people thought it was wrong - and there was not much more to it than that 

jackass --- 22 days ago -

Millions of armchair patriots still tuning in...i donnt believe for a second that these people stopped watching...

People have fought for their right to sit and I think people might not be so angry if they saw these same men do something constructive when they aren't on the field in front of cameras. 

Four Pinocchios --- 21 days ago -

They absolutely have the right to their little protest. It doesn't make their actions any less disgusting, in my opinion.

As a Constitutionalist, I support their right, no matter my opinion about their message or how misguided they may be in their quest.

As an American who loves her country and respects the flag, especially now that I'm the mother of a United States Marine, I think a nut punch is in short order.

I'm torn.

President Trump shouldn't have inserted his opinion because now the line in the sand has been drawn. 

witchywoman --- 21 days ago -

The Line in the Sand was drawn a long time ago. The line between Trump sanity and insanity, that is.

Kelly needs to get him back on his meds. 

Four Pinocchios --- 21 days ago -

Thank you for that uninformed opinion, Witchywoman. Now I see how stupid I looked when I'd attempt to derail a thread. 

jackass --- 21 days ago -

Whoever thought that "I may not agree with what you say, but I'll defend your right to say it" would become such a leftist sentiment? 

witchywoman --- 21 days ago -

I'm not trying to derail a thread, four pinocchios. I'm just stating my opinion and the man is insane. If you really want to worry about our military worry about the fact that North Korea is now threatening to fire upon us because of Trump's big mouth.

But feel free to go right back to insulting others just because their opinion doesn't agree with yours. Because, after all, they're fighting for your right to do that. Just like they're fighting for the right of the football players to kneel if they want to. 

Four Pinocchios --- 21 days ago -

It's only a leftist sentiment when convenient, jack. Conservative speakers are constantly having their speaking engagements canceled at colleges all over the country. 

the Markster --- 21 days ago -

bob. Since the person pictured isnt quoted. Is it possible that person pictured supports "non violent protest"?

Seems to me any veteran that served as we have bob, would support free speech. Including taking a knee. I suppose you "bob" are an exception to the rule. 

jackass --- 21 days ago -

The "bobs" of the world area just caught up in the hysteria over the newest boogeyman. 

BuiltinTX70 --- 21 days ago -

In regards to that picture, I actually am aware of who he is. Not personally, but have seen him involved with the NFL.

I'd like to know his opinion on this subject, rather than have someone Photoshop text around him.

Either way, I'd respect the heck out of him for his service.

AMDG - you're making way too much sense in this thread.

Before last Friday, this wasn't even a major issue. Go figure...with healthcare, tax reform, and natural disasters, Trump makes it about something trivial.

How much is really being accomplished by protesting? I'd say it's negligible. And how much were people bothered who tuned in or went to the game of a silent protest that pretty much lasts a minute. Again, negligible in the big scheme.

Now it's consumed everyone.....but does it really deserve this attention? 

Prolix Raconteur --- 21 days ago -

It's Trump. All Trump/All the time, 24 hour news cycle. Latch onto some irrelevant issue and scorch the earth. He knows exactly what he's doing. Sure don't hear anything about Russia anymore. He'll leave this NFL nonsense a flaming wreck and move onto the next (non) issue in a matter of days, or less. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 21 days ago -

The Line in the Sand was drawn a long time ago. The line between Trump sanity and insanity, that is.

So now your a Psychiatrist too? 

BuiltinTX70 --- 21 days ago -

Bull in a China closet.......

And in regards to the GS Warriors and Stephon Curry.

Why dis invite? Wouldn't a leader, a real negotiator, invite Curry and his teamates to the WH, sit down, talk.......try to accomplish something.

Does he realize the points he'd score?

The man has zero feel for being a leader. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 21 days ago -

the millions of people who believe it is an issue today - didn't give it a whole lot of thought about it until Trump lit a match to it last friday -

Correlation isn't causation. Plus, how do you know how millions of people felt last week? All you know for certain is what Trump said. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 21 days ago -

It is only a major issue because he made it one

Again, Trump didn't make it an issue, the press did. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 21 days ago -

The man has zero feel for being a leader.

Are you some sort of leadership expert? Are you qualified to judge leadership? 

BuiltinTX70 --- 21 days ago -

Millions had an opinion on it before Friday.

Millions and millions are also concerned with healthcare, tax reform, and Puerto Rico.

Trump seems concerned with the NFL. 

Emperor of Kingwood --- 21 days ago -

Seems to me any veteran that served as we have bob, would support free speech.

Me being a Veteran has nothing to do with free speech. I do support the Constitution, which only applies to government limits of speech, not private industry. 

BuiltinTX70 --- 21 days ago -

Are you some sort of leadership expert? Are you qualified to judge leadership?

It is called an opinion based on what I perceive to be happening in this country. 

BuiltinTX70 --- 21 days ago -

I do support the Constitution, which only applies to government limits of speech, not private industry.

And the NFL (owners and Commissioner) have already granted that players can do this, so it's really a non issue. Correct? 

AMDG --- 21 days ago -

And his base is all worked up again - right behind him on this.

And all the while -

Repeal - replace - no chance
the wall - never will happen
meaningful immigration reform - na -
NAFTA out - well not so fast
The demon China - well kind of a pal now
Go ahead N korea cross this line ok now cross this one ok now cross this one
Put HRC in jail for using private email - oh wait

When will his base realize they bought a pig in a poke from a traveling salesman -
