clarkgriswold will become famous soon enough
Looks like the deal on Goodell is essentially done. I wonder if old Jerry realizes that the manner in which he addressed this helped push the deal along.

As a Vikings fan, and season ticket holder, I'm thrilled they've been able to get out to an 8-2 record without Bradford or Bridgewater at QB, and largely without Cook at RB. The D will keep them in every game. They have the head to head wins over the Saints and Rams. They don't play the Eagles, but I'm hoping the Vikes can get homefield in the NFC and take their chances. The Super Bowl is in their home stadium. I think it will be tough to win it all with Keenum at QB, but that defense is nasty.

So in Marshawn Lynch's eyes, America = bad cops, unjust legal system and Mexico= good cops, fair legal system? This is beyond moronic. I don't agree with the protests, but if you're going to do it, at least be consistent in your message.

I love to see teams like the Vikings and Eagles win. I'm so tired of the ESPN's and the NFL network shoving the "popular" teams down our throats ever year. Dallas is the Notre Dame of pro football. Every year they are a super bowl contender, but you win on the field in pro football. No hiding.
The Vikings are a great story. You CAN win without a franchise QB. Be balanced on offense, play defense and don't get too cute and you have a shot of winning every week.

I really think eventually you are going to see either no anthem played before NFL games, or the teams will just stay in the locker room. It's a bad look for the league to have players protest this way. And they don't want to suspend players for non-football related items as polarizing like this. So like prayer in school, you'll see this eventually go away. My guess is this offseason, you'll see some kind of action.
It's really unfortunate because a guy like Lynch really doesn't understand how fortunate he is to be an American.

Truth be told, he was probably baked and just got confused.

Prayer in school is totally difft. There's many difft religions, only one USA. And TBH, I'm done caring about them kneeling, but I can't stomach the idiocy of protesting injustice in the US, then passively accepting what goes on in Mexico. If he pulled this in London, I wouldn't be as annoyed, but Mexico is so beyond corrupt.

This is the kind of society we get with social media, when the people who have the largest impact are athletes or celebrities who barely graduated HS.

To be fair, the celebrities, athletes, and activists are simply following what is trickling down from certain parts of academia. It's pretty clearly political, not logical. I wouldn't care at all if the NFL decided to stop playing the anthem all together. I could do without it.

Until the Obama dept of defense decided to do the paid patriotism thing, the players were often in the locker room for the anthem. Just go back to that, or don't play the thing at all. Either way works.

Blaming academia is dumb. These are adults capable of making their own decisions. And I'm referring to both athletes and everyday college students.
