    Default NFL just caved on the Anthem. Complete and utter surrender to trump

    Man, trump is kicking ass. the NYT reported that trumps engagement with isis is got them on the ropes and now roger goodell just throwing himself at the mercy of trump is so pathetic.

    The irony of all of this is that the NFL OWN RULES requires that you stand for the anthem. its in there own damn rule book. Similar to not being able to put decals on there helmets. Of course when these rich white owners started seeing there money dry up. There tune changed.

    And the sad thing about all of this was none of this was needed. The terrible situation in chicago and Baltimore and police brutility could have been dealt with in a much more effective manner then protesting the honor of this country by a bunch of rich spoiled football players.

    Trump wins again. America wins again. I win again. its beautiful.

    Roger goodlell statement on standing up during the anthem just released.

    And how pathetic is that, if you truly are concerned about innocent people being shot, but all you can muster up, is taking a knee?? What's next, an NFL lineman seeing a woman getting raped, and he takes a knee in protest? Well, at least he showed he cared.

    This taking a knee during the anthem is a worthless gesture, because it says nothing, solves nothing, and only serves to draw the ire from many of their fans.
    Posting from a position of ignorance again I see.

    Denver Broncos: Brandon Marshall is creating positive change in the community

    After he first kneeled for the anthem on Sept. 8, 2016, Marshall met with Denver police chief Robert White in what began an ongoing dialogue between urban communities around Denver and the local police. He also pledged to donate $300 for every tackle last season to local organizations committed to addressing “critical social issues.”

    And for the past two years, Marshall has organized an*Attendance Challenge*at local elementary schools, encouraging kids to go to school, learn and use their education.

    .... yup just a bunch of lazy people

    Well that is kind of lazy. $300 for every tackle? What is that, like 1 or 2 tackles? He's a Wide Receiver.

    Maybe talking about Vonn Miller? Marshall hasn't played for Denver for a few years.

    That's the type of productive actions I'm talking about. Going out and doing something like the above, that will get the fans support behind you. Taking a knee is a giant negative.

    The guy takes a knee, but can't even work up the ambition to vote.

    I believe that since God can't be everywhere he created mothers and Flags.
    I'm saying it's not normal (and possibly dangerous) to put a human symbol "close to being on the same pedestal" as a deity.

    You must not watch much football. There is a Brandon Marshall on the Broncos and he is a Linebacker. He had back to back 100 tackle seasons recently.

    This complete BS. Trump could be a leader. He could have invited kaepernick, the other protestors, heads of police to the White house to form a sort of council to discuss the greviances. The whole point of kneeling was to protest police brutality and as kaepernick said, kneel until it is addressed. Instead, trumpists and Trump decide to take the low road and go off on "dishonoring veterans and the flag" yadadada. Yelling on Twitter to stand up and be fired is a partisan leaderless copout. Instead of trying to resolve anything trumpists and Trump would rather play their stupid ***** childish games. The protesters are asking to be heard, and trumpists would rather fight.

    No. What it does is shine a very bright light on the right's total disregard for police brutality and inability to have a conversation about it.

    is that supposed to be some nutty way of justifying government officials unjustly killing American citizens?
