    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.

    Lots of major wins for the left in culture wars.

    very few to the other side.

    Satan will indeed win some battles but in the end God will win the war. You can take that to the bank.

    3. Abortion still legal although cons have tried to restrict
    4. Transgenders are coming out more
    5. Separation of church and state
    6. Marijuana legalization
    7. Birth control
    8. Sex education

    If you think winning on the kneeling is important that is pretty minor in the culture wars. But you get your victories where you can, I suppose.
    Looking at your list, one could conclude libs are obsessed with sex.

    I think it's because libs seem to care more about taking care of the earth that God gave us.

    And someday you will wish you had done more than went off on gays.

    Lord lord did we not go after gays and women who had abortions while ignoring all other forms of injustice in your name.

    Have not been able to, or have chosen not to?

    Your loss, because games have been pretty good so far this year.

    Here you go brother....

    Looks like not many.

    ETA: Here is another one, following the first weekend after Trump ignited the firestorm and brought the issue to prominence.

    Looks like a few more did that weekend.

    I will tell him, her or it what I will tell you right now.

    How many people have told me that theirs is the true religion

    How do you wade though all the different religions and faith. and pick just one.

    Religions and faiths are man made crapola.

    There is only one way to find out what actually happens when human brain function stops working.

    and whatever happens (or doesnt happen) I can deal with it on my own terms.

    Dont need people like you to preach to me.

    I think the whiny little brats should show respect to the country that made all this possible for them to begin with. If they want to protest do it like everybody else. Go get a permit and have a march. I wonder how many other free market companies would let the employees protest at work.
    Zero to your last question. It is stupid to go out of your way to offend any of your customers or potential customers. Plus; it isn't like these people are unknowns. If they wanted to hold press conferences to complain or hold a protest away from their workplace the media would come running from everywhere.

    YOU don't get to decide if it's a noble act or not.
    • The unexamined life is not worth living.
    • Wisdom is knowing how little we know.
    • The arguments stay the same...only the sides making those arguments change.

    There is no such thing as Satan.
    The point is, you can never be too greedy.

    Actually everyone does; and when it comes to the bottom line, it doesn't take a huge percentage of people to put a big hurt on the NFL's revenue. Hence the direction the owners are apparently moving.
