Instead of striving for excellence why is it when left wing politics enters the picture the proverbial # 2 hits the fan...Schools , immigration policy , inner city life now the latest victim the NFL. My goodness I can't conceive of Jerry the two sons and his football team making bigger asses of themselves then the little kneel down prior to the anthem. Nice Jerry , way to let the inmates run the asylum.

The owners were short-sighted, spineless, and gutless in their reaction when they showed solidarity with the protesting players. Players come and go, but the season ticket holders/fanbases go on and make it possible for these franchises to survive and thrive. Jones and the other owners in effect thumbed their noses at the majority of their customer base. A number of which come from military families. Say goodbye to a significant percentage of your league's spectators/viewers, Roger. You are a disgrace.

The NFL commissioner, like Senator John McCain, wants the media to like him and report nice things about him - and so he turned his back on his country and on loyal NFL fans to instead come out against President Trump and on the side of the anti-law-enforcement #BlackLivesMatter movement.

Meanwhile, LovesWomenFrenching, who LOVES posting polls showing how unpopular Donald Trump is, somehow MISSED this one, which shows that the American people overwhelmingly siding with our president:

New Poll Shows Most Americans Stand with Trump on NFL Protests

A new poll conducted by the Remington Research Group shows the vast majority of Americans strongly agree with President Trump’s tough stance against professional athletes who protest the national anthem; signaling even more trouble for the National Football League after a weekend of demonstrations.

The survey asked over 1,500 likely voters if they supported President Trump’s belief that NFL players should stand during the national anthem, and face possible fines or removal should they choose to kneel during the ‘Star-Spangled Banner.’

64% of Americans sided with Trump, saying the pro-athletes should “stand and be respectful during the national anthem.”

Just 25% disagreed with the President, with 11% remaining undecided.

Even more problematic for the NFL, participants were also asked if the protests would make them more or less likely to watch their “favorite team’s games in the future.” A whopping 50% said they would likely tune-out if players continue the demonstrations, with 20% saying it made no difference.

President Trump kicked off a media firestorm last week, when he asked NFL owners and coaches to remove or suspend players who choose to protest the national anthem; calling for a boycott of the league until new guidelines are put in place barring such demonstrations.


- The National Football League has really shot itself in the foot this time - some fans are gone forever - while others will be VERY SLOW coming back!

It will be interesting to see what happens from here. As you correctly stated Anon, the league has unquestionably alienated much of its fanbase. If people are not showing up at the games, nor watching them on television, or buying the merchandise (jerseys, caps, helmets, etc.), I could definitely see Goodell & company in total damage control mode, just like they were following the whole Ray Rice fiasco. Thus in the end, despite all of the PC it is not black and white which truly matters. It is green $$$.

No NFL team has a more loyal fan base than the Green Bay Packers, Lezfriend - and that team asked its fans to link arms during the playing of the national anthem on Thursday night to show support for the #BlackLivesMatter movement and Colin Kaepernick's disrespect for our nation's flag.

Here's what happened, as reported by Joy Pullman:

Green Bay Packers Asked Fans To Link Arms During National Anthem. Most Refused

Wisconsin’s Green Bay Packers, who have a deep history of fan support through good times and bad, asked fans to join them in linking arms during the national anthem at last night’s home game against the Chicago Bears. Most fans refused.

While Packers and Bears players and coaches linked arms on the field, a plethora of little American flags popped up all over the stadium. Fans shouted “USA! USA!” while a large flag unfurled over the field. Local reports say some people even went farther in their displays of respect for the United States:

In the concourse, some people removed their hats as the anthem started to play, some stopped walking, some even saluted towards the TV’s displaying what was happening on the field, while crowds continued to move around them to get to their seat before kickoff. Some fans outside the stadium also stopped for the anthem.

Two days before the game, the Pack released a statement asking fans to join them in linking arms at this game to celebrate “diversity” and “justice”:

The image you will see on September 28th will be one of unity. It will represent a coming together of players who want the same things that all of us do—freedom, equality, tolerance, understanding, and justice for those who have been unjustly treated, discriminated against or otherwise treated unfairly. You will see the sons of police officers, kids who grew up in military families, people who have themselves experienced injustice and discrimination firsthand, and an array of others all linking together in a display of unity.

Those of us joining arms on Thursday will be different in so many ways, but one thing that binds us together is that we are all individuals who want to help make our society, our country and our world a better place. We believe that in diversity there can be UNI-versity.

At last Sunday’s game, during which an NFL-wide protest had been announced, several Packers players linked arms on the sidelines during the national anthem, while “Three players – veteran tight ends Martellus Bennett and Lance Kendricks, along with rookie cornerback Kevin King – sat on the bench during the anthem behind the rest of the team, all for different reasons.” Afterwards, the team decided to try this week for a unified display.

This is about equality. This is about unity, and love, and growing together as a society, and starting a conversation around something that might be a little uncomfortable for people. But we have to come together and talk about these things and grow as a community, as a connected group of individuals in our society, and we’re going to continue to show love and unity,” said quarterback Aaron Rodgers. “This week we’re going to ask the fans to join in as well, come together and show people we can be connected, and we can grow together.”

At least 95% of the fans ignored him.

Rodgers seemed bewildered by their response. Didn’t fans get that this was “an invitation to show unity in the face of some divisiveness from the top in this country?” Maybe they see the source of division as from a different elite than Rodgers does.

Regardless of what the Packers and other teams say they mean with the national anthem protests, the message many fans are getting is anti-Americanism. Laura Hapke’s mother is a Packers shareholder — Packers shares are irrevocable and a sign of full fan investment. Hapke meets with other Packers fans every week to watch their games and is on the season-ticket waiting list. She told USA Today “the Packers were the last team she expected to do what they did Sunday.”

If they come out and say they are more into politics than patriotism, I’ll have to rethink it,” she said. “It will break my heart, but I’ll have to rethink it.”

The Steelers and Broncos have released statements saying their teams will resume standing for the anthem, starting Sunday.


- This is a battle that the NFL cannot possibly win - America's football fans are NOT the clueless idiots that team owners apparently think they are!

You can't make this stuff up. VP Pence appears at a Colts-49ers game in Indy and gets blasted by the lamestream media for leaving in response to players kneeling for the anthem. They accuse him of politicizing the issue, while the players who initiated the protest receive a complete pass (no pun intended).

Meanwhile, Jamelle Hill gets suspended by ESPN for two weeks for proclaiming that the Dallas Cowboys advertisers should be boycotted because of Jerry Jones' stance on the anthem issue. What a joke. Hill gets only two weeks, while the very same poor excuse for a network fires Curt Schilling for merely retweeting a photo in response to the Orlando Pulse nightclub terrorist attacks.

It appears my new policy of not watching the Broncos live has turned out to be good idea. In the meantime I watched some previously recorded programs while recording "Wisdom of the Crowd" and NCIS:Los Angeles. Love my little DVR from Direct TV.

The Chiefs played just as poorly, and the lowly Chargers won. The world is going crazy.

Sorry, just not into the NFL these days. All too many players using the gridiron as a means of political protest by kneeling during the national anthem, penalties being committed on seemingly every other play, and ridiculous celebrations by those scoring TDs or recording QB sacks.

The ratings are down across the board, as well as attendance with a considerable number of people not showing up for the games. If it continues, I am sure that Goodell and the owners will be attempting to take steps to get back into the public's good graces. After all, nobody wants to lose $$$.
