    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.

    Yeah.

    Because you WANT to anger and repulse people when you are trying to enlist them to your cause.

    Good job, NFL players!

    They DID NOT pay for that.


    Take it elsewhere.

    How many Americans are even AWARE of the original intent of the players? They stupidly ANGER millions of Americans and stupidly think everyone is going to rush out and check up on their claims - AFTER they see them disrespect the anthem.


    You're delusional if you think this is an effective protest, as are they. They blew it.

    You think he's not hurting them?

    What if the NFL continues to lose viewership and ticket sales?

    Who do you think will lose salary when that happens? Sorry, guys. We are just not getting what we used to get anymore so neither are you.

    Wrong. They paid money for the entire experience and that does not include getting someone's politics shoved in their face.

    You seem awfully emotional and upset over all of this. Why? It does not affect you or your life one single iota. If you don't like it, don't watch it. I mean really, who cares? It is not impacting me in any way, shape or fashion. My patriotism and love for this nation is completely unchanged by this. My deep passion and love of the game of football is completely unaffected by this as well.
    I'm not upset at all! I'm ASTOUNDED at the utter cluelessness of these players. Someone told them they had the power to offend millions of Americans without repercussions. Someone lied to them.

    All of this emotional outrage reminds me of liberals/progressives when they get their panties all in a wad over some nonsensical issue. It is amusing to witness, but hysterically absurd too.
    Please.

    The players WANTED to be noticed. They just though everyone would think them heroes and agree with them. The bubble they live in is bursting.
