The minority of players that are kneeling are the divisive ones. Their kneeling shows disrespect to the flag and our national anthem.
Trump is trying to unify the country around our military and public servants - as a commander in chief should do.
Please tell me, how many of you think Goodell is a brilliant decision maker?
No more nfl for me.

Find another way to protest if you want your cause to be respected.

Know this - yes, it is your right to protest in any way you choose, but there are repercussions. Dishonoring the flag negates any salient point you may have to a large part of your intended audience. I think it's foolish and highly counter-productive, myself.
This has been explained to you numerous times before. It's amazing to me that you've either chosen to completely ignore it, or are too dense to understand it. Most likely a mixture of both. From the very beginning, it was explicitly explained by Kaepernick why he was kneeling. None of the reasons had anything to do with American service members. He actually came out and said this:

Quote:
“The media painted this as I’m anti-American, anti-men-and-women of the military and that’s not the case at all,’’ Kaepernick said, USA Today reports. “I realize that men and women of the military go out and sacrifice their lives and put themselves in harm’s way for my freedom of speech and my freedoms in this country and my freedom to take a seat or take a knee so I have the utmost respect for them."
http://time.com/4477383/colin-kaeper...-the-military/

Quote:
"I have great respect for men and women that have fought for this country," Kaepernick stoically said during a media session Sunday. He then turned to the actual purpose for his decision not to stand for the anthem: to protest what he believes is widespread oppression and brutality carried out largely by the police against minorities.
https://www.si.com/nfl/2016/08/29/co...-protest-49ers

So again, like it's been explained to you before, this has nothing to do with service members. You can argue all day about what his stated message is about(oppression, police brutality, etc.), but stop lying, and stop using veterans and members of the military as pawns to push your snowflake agenda. Because honestly, it makes you a huge piece of sh!t.

Mike Tomlin sets a precedent that all teams should follow:
“We’re football players, we’re football coaches. We’re not participating in the anthem today. Not to be disrespectful to the anthem, but to remove ourselves from this circumstance,” he said. “People shouldn’t have to choose. If a guy wants to go about his normal business and participate in the anthem, he shouldn’t have to be forced to choose sides. If a guy feels the need to do something, he shouldn’t be separated from his teammate who chooses not to. So we’re not participating today.”

This is the easy fix for the NFL. Leave the teams in the locker room for the anthem. No more protests, no more bad PR.

Thanks to Ronnie & Termite for your service. And I'm sorry some lowlifes use your sacrifice as a tool to censor speech they disagree with.

The kneeling is what it is...disrespectful but their right. I'm offended by the agenda being pushed...that blacks are oppressed, America is an inherently racist nation, and cops are out to kill black people.

This false message is being filtered down to the youth who will grow up to hate their country, police and white people which makes for a dangerous and dark future.

It's a symbol, of course. I guess you missed this part - "...yes, it is your right to protest in any way you choose, but there are repercussions. Dishonoring the flag negates any salient point you may have to a large part of your intended audience.."

I'd expect that you'll leave your hat on and continue a phone conversation through the anthem, you self-absorbed tw@t.

No one wants to censor any free speech, dimwit

Well, of course they can kneel. They have the right to burn the flag in protest if they wish.

I'm done with them, either way.

So when someone doesn't stand for the anthem, ep n boys say it's just a flag relax. But when it's the confederate flag.....oh sht! That has to be ripped to shreds and torn down. So either all flags are symbolic or none are.

I would like to know where all this social injustice is at ? According to Huffington magazine a liberal web site 968 Americans out of a population of over 300 million people were killed by cops last year. Of those 968 people 250 were black Americans. Compare that to Chicago where over a thousand black youths are killed every year by other black youths. Why aren't these millionaire jocks upset about that.

Of course I never said the flag wasn’t symbolic. I never advocated ripping the US flag to shreds and of course no one is doing that here. Sounds like you just argued against your position on the confederate flag, so thanks.

Ever wonder why liberals fight so hard to give everyone a free education.
I'm sure it has nothing to do with getting as many young people as possible indoctrinated to their liberal agenda, in their liberal college's, by all their liberal professors. Sounds a little Hitleresque to me boys.

Right. Kaep chooses to ignore the purpose and the message of the anthem when Americans assemble at a sporting event because he cares more about his cause than honoring our past COMBAT veterans through a 4 minute song.

In my opinion if you don't like what America is and it's people and the flag we fly as a symbol of it freedom. Then pack your bleepin bags, and take your selfish sorry biscuits to any other country in the world, and see how your attitudes, and opinions work out there.
