Mad Dog Mattis destroyed the NFL anthem protesters with four devastating words

The NFL’s anti-American protest consumed the country in 2017.

Spoiled athletes wiped their feet on the memory of America’s heroes by kneeling during the national anthem.

James “Mad Dog” Mattis was asked about the protests and he wrecked the crybaby millionaires with just four words.

After Donald Trump spoke for the majority of Americans and ripped the anti-American NFL protesters, over 150 players knelt during the playing of the Star Spangled Banner.



It was a disgraceful scene that pleased the liberal sports media, but alienated the league fans – who showed their disapproval by showering team with boos at multiple stadiums across the league.

The media did their best to try and pull other members of the Trump administration into the controversy in the hopes that one would break ranks with the President and defend the anti-American protesters.

One reporter hounded Secretary of Defense James “Mad Dog” Mattis for an answer but Mattis swatted away the question – and the protesters – with one four word answer.

Mattis dropped a truth bomb on the players and the media by simply stating “we defend the country.”

When Mattis said “we defend the country” he reminded everyone that the men and women in uniform put their lives on the line so deluded millionaires have the freedom to disrespect their sacrifice.

What were your thoughts on the anthem protests?

Will the NFL put an end to them in 2018?

  1. As soon as they are effected by money they will quit this, but we must quit watching them to effect their money. It is called a good and a service. Are they providing the service we want? NO then don’t watch them they have gotten to big for their britches after all. Too much at once spoils the child and they get sidetracked on something else not football. Enough said of these spoiled brats!

  2. MY HOPE ? I HOPE THEY DIE OUT WHO REALLY NEEDS THEM ANYWAY . TURN THE FOOTBALL FIELDS INTO THAT ROUND BALL GAME FIELDS . EVEN IF THEY START STANDING AGAIN I STILL WON’T WATCH THEY CAN ALL GO AND SUCK EGGS !

    • As Long as these Un-American Liberals Continue this Disgrace of our Flag, Anthem, and our Country,and Dishonor the Men and Women in our Military who Defend our Country and Die and or become Disabled. No One in my Family will even look at a Football Game,let alone go to any Stadium. As far as we are concerned we are done with Football and any others that would Disrespect our Country and or our Military.

      Remember Our Military keeps a protective Umbrella over our Country 24/7 365 Days a year, every Year of our Lives, and we need to Honor them always, Disrespecting them is Completely Un-American and Unacceptable. These Soldiers are our Family, Relatives, Friends, Neighbors, Disrespecting them is an Affront to all True Americans.

  3. I have read most of these commits for and against the protest and can tell that very few if any of you have played organized sports, and miss the hole point of the issue. If these players want to protest then do it on their dime not mine. Heck they can take both knees if they want but not on my time or my dime. I played High school and JR. College football and coached High School Basket Ball and Track, and know most of these NOT all of these protesters could not tell you when the war of 1812 was fought, I had to put up with some of these same type of Pin Heads when playing sports at college, very smart players on the field, but off the field not so sharp always in trouble with their off field antics. I taught Auto Shop and welding classes for eight years at a private school and some of my better students were from the Inner city so not all should be judged by a few. The protesters go against everything TEAM sports is all about the word again is TEAM SPORTS as in unity and everyone coverers each other no matter what.

    • I don’t judge all by the actions of a few. The NFL is and will suffer the consequenches of their actions by lost revenue, so go for it losers.
      If I actively protested publicly on company time, I would be fired, period. I also believe there are other respectful young men who would be willing to play.

  4. The National Anthem has been there before the players were there. All these years there were no controversy about the music and the American Flag. The flag is a symbol for our freedom and also all of our soldiers that serves for the last 250 years to maintain this country great and peaceful. They even help the football game comes forward in this country. What is all that gripping about the National Anthem? I think those who serves against the flag is hatred, spoil and greedy. The only thing it comes in my mind is attention to the country but it is sending a negative message though. When the negative kicks in so the football games are hurting because no one wants to be around negative energy and this includes me! So positive energy will always comes around if you believe your sole, god or any kind spiritual beliefs. It will always win in the end. Maybe this is why Trump is the President and not Hilary? Why is that, think real! There was a reason for this we may or may not know. But up there they did know! That is why it shock the world. I knew about before the election was won because up there I was told that. Amen! Brad

  5. I would like to know if the Protesters are being paid to do so, and by whom? Most of these Anti-Flag and Anti-American groups are Communist Front Groups who seek to divide our Country with ridiculous Protesters who don’t even know what they are protesting.
    Which Father of America are they taking a knee to protest? Which American soldiers who died to defend our country are they spitting upon? How many men had to die so black Americans could have equality?

    • Chance are they are being goaded on BY George Soros who is behind the BLM protestors. He ought to be tried in abstensia for TREASON.

    • I guess the First Amendment no longer exists or is limited by the definition of others.

      You may not like what one says by their words or behavior, but you have the responsibility to tolerate it. If not your speech may be limited like some on this site want for others.

      FIRST AMENDMENT FOR ALL or FIRST AMENDMENT FOR ONLY SOME OR FOR NONE.

      BE CAREFUL ANY CHANGE WILL APPLY TO YOU ALSO.

      • You miss the point Dee. Demonstrate for whatever you truly believe in, that is your right, but not in the workplace. That is the only real issue I have with the whole scenario. Whether I agree with their cause, which I don’t, is not the issue.

        • The TRUE CAUSE is never the issue when the people who are being dealt the bad hand protesting!!!! No matter where they did it at it would be UNAMERICAN to some people, which is RIDICULOUS by the way!! You know HISTORY HAS SHOWN THAT PEOPLE WHO STOOD FOR WHAT THEY BELIEVED IN WHEN THEY FOUGHT AGAINST INJUSTICE, UNFAITHFULNESS, INEQUALITY,ARE NOW HONORED FOR WHAT THEY STOOD FOR, ENDURED AND EVEN DIED FOR!! Many of the people on this site praise OUR PRESIDENT and he’s AVAILABLE DRAFT DODGER, HAS CALLED FOR INNOCENT PEOPLE TO BE JAILED(EVEN AFTER DNA EVIDENCE CLEARED THEM), HAS RIPPED OFF HARDWORKING PEOPLE, TELLS A LIE AND TURNS RIGHT AROUND AND TELLS YOU THAT YOU DIDN’T HEAR WHAT YOU HEARD!!! But people on this site go as FAR AS TO CALL MICHELLE OBAMA A MAN, SAY THAT THEIR FAMILY IS A FAKE IN ORDER TO PUT THEM IN THE WHITEHOUSE!!! NO, YOU ALL WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO KEEP CONTROLLING THE NARRATIVE AT WORK OR ANYWHERE ELSE! I’VE FOUND THAT IT’S FINE WHEN THE PEOPLE WHO SUPPORT TRUMP OR ARE AGAINST THE PROTESTS WANT TO TALK BUT WHEN ANYONE WHO EXPRESSES ANOTHER VIEW SPEAKS UP Y’ALL WANT TO RUB TO THE BOSS MAN AND WHINE!! BUT GUESS WHAT YOU’RE TOLD, ” IF YOU CAN’T HANDLE IT THEN YOU CAN’T TALK ABOUT IT EITHER”!! THERE’S NO IMPROPER PLACE TO DISCUSS INJUSTICE, INEQUALITY, UNFAIRNESS, OPPRESSION!!! HOW CAN YOUR CO-WORKERS KNOW YOU HAVE THEIR BACKS IF THEY DON’T KNOW WHERE YOU STAND!!! I LOVE THE MOVIE THE PATRIOT ( MEL GIBSON’S DRUNK RANTING ASS) BUT WHEN THE MAN SAVES THE OTHER ONE EVEN AFTER HE TREATED HIM POORLY, MANY CAN LEARN FROM THAT

          • What in the hell Kelton does all that crap have to do with the NFL and their misbehavior? This site is about them not about the president(s) past and present nor their wives. Grow up.

          • No Kathy, THIS site is about a bunch of UNAMERICAN PHSYCO PEOPLE who are unwilling to see anything other than their TWISTED VIEWS!! I simply showed some examples of people who have protested using their venues who were ostracized, ridiculed, called ALL of the things that these athletes have been called!!! Only to have HISTORY SHINE ON THEM BY THEIR PROTESTS BECOMING VESSELS OF GREAT CHANGE IN THIS GREAT COUNTRY OF OURS!! And is it NOT so that some of the sick assed people who dwell here say that First Lady Michelle Obama is truly a MAN and many sick asses fall for it!!! SUCH LANGUAGE CAN BE AND IS DANGEROUS JUST LIKE PIZZA GATE!!!

  6. I’m just curious. Isn’t there a special antitrust exclusion for the NFL allowing their complete monopoly of pro football? Why not revoke it by executive order or at least initiate “a review” of the legislation permitting it? That might redirect NFL attention to fire disrespectful player/protesters/commissioners/owners and those who permit such
    shameful displays that dishonor in any way our country’s protectors. National TV is not the place for disrespect of any sort. I’m just saying. jeff

    • Hypocrisy, these NFL Players are walking around with 2 loafs of bread under each arm and
      they want the people who are lucky to have a loaf of bread, to fix the problem, yep Hypocrisy.

    • Executive order without voted of approval of congress is limited.

      Executive order starts laws and executive orders end law. Trump has one passed piece of legislation signed into law. All the rest is executive order done by his will alone. Not likely to last either.

      • and they where revoking the executive orders of one Barack o bummer who did so outside the constitution. and he said so many times yet did it anyway

  7. I am sad that these “Americans” feel this way! I served in the military to protect all Americans and feel so sad that people cannot understand the privilege they have to live in the United States! Have a Happy New Year all! True Americans will come out and voice their displeasure at the disrespectful behavior!

    • Bravo! Disgraceful to show this disrespect for our flag, soldiers, & country…to the mentally pliable teens in AMERICA ! To accept this is just WRONG & frightens me as to the future conscience or lack thereofof our youth.

    • What is your position on the NFL players?

      Not all military veterans have the same position on everything. They do differ. Some even approve and understand the reaction…on both sides.

    • Iron, that is the best definition I’ve seen of these dirt bag millionaires to date, well said. Happy New Year to you and all of us who “stand for the flag” and “kneel for the cross”! God Bless America and those who sacrificed their lives protecting us.

    • Spent 22 plus years in uniforme and when the anthem protest started I said i would never watch a pro foot ball game. To date I am 100% on the mark and no matter what the spoiled, most non serving NFL players do, they will not have me watching them on TV or paying to go to a game, never, never. Curt

  8. I agree with those who are angered by the selfishness of those NFL players who took a knee. No surprise the liberal media is so excited about this controversy. What I would like to see is those in the NFL who are also upset by the selfeness of those spoiled individuals who are protesting the anthem.
    I would like to thank the demonstrators for this one reason in that this has brought together so many of us to show pride in our country.
    My last question/statement in this is the NFL leadership (oxymoron) remains to bitterly silent on this matter. Why? They don’t live in our world, my world. In some respects I thank the heavens for this.
    Stay strong and be proud of those of us who stand together our way of thinking and the next NFL game I watch, the next dime I spend on anything representing the NFL will be the first one in ages. GOD Bless America.

    • It really no longer matters what the NFL does or doesn’t do. It is dead. A new league is on the horizon with new rules and new people that will represent the best of America.

  9. It is now 2018 and evendors though it’s a NEW YEAR Goodell still sit’s back and does nothing to eliminate the problem with these players Disrespecting Our Flag, Anthem, Country and Our Veterans….. He’s a WIMP who knows nothing of Leadership and is a far cry of knowing how to run a business….. The NFL is going to BURY itself into that GRAVE waiting for them no matter what YEAR it is, as they have NO SENSE or KNOWLEDGE of what they’re doing is WRONG, Disrespectful, Disgraceful and Dishonorable in which they themselves are going to put an end to the whole NFL, including the ones whom are Not involved….. BYE, BYE NFL it was nice knowing you when you did represent the GAME of FOOTBALL, but you ruined that as well and now with this FALSE PROTESTING a FALSE REASON….Ya’ll belong in the Military to learn the values of Respect for Our Flag, Anthem, Country and Our Veterans and what it means to have HONOR for your fellow MEN/WOMEN who have….. McNair called it very CORRECTLY as anyone Protesting such as you’ve shown, are nothing more than INMATES…..and you PROVE it each and every time you display your kneeling, sitting, no show, etc…. for the False Unwarranted Reasons you claim…

      • Oppressed??? NOT! Obama really did his best to divide us. Prior to him, I felt we had come full circle. Americans are one and the same – we breathe the same air; we have blood flowing through our veins; we love our country and our families! Who is responsible for starting up this ancient civil war again?

      • yet the actions of all these spoiled (multi criminal record )man-children whare and have killed off the NO FANS LEFT league AS WELL AS THE LOSS OF TENS OF THOUSANDS OF JOBS as sports bars all over America close down due to loss of clientele and revenue.

  10. Draft them all and send them to the middle east and if they want to kneel when they are discharged they will have earned that right.

    • Draft will never happen if RICH PEOPLE can help it!! Because their children will have to register, OH HELL I FORGOT OUR PRESIDENT RECEIVED NUMEROUS DEFERMENTS AND DIDN’T SERVE!!!! SO KEEP DRINKING WHAT HE’S PUTTING IN YA’LLS GLASSES AND YOUR ASSES CAN BE LIKE JONESTOWN ONLY IT’LL BE CALLED TRUMP’S TOWN!! YOU ALL CAN’T SEE THE FOREST FOR THE TREES, WILL BITE OFF YOUR NOSES IN SPITE OF YOUR FACES!!! LEARN TO THINK FOR YOURSELVES AND BELIEVE IN THE SO CALLED CHRISTIAN VALUES THAT YOU CLAIM TO HAVE!!! AIN’T NOTHING LIKE JESUS IN YA’LLS TRIFLING LOWDOWN DECEITFUL ROTTEN ASSES!!

      • kELTON, YOU HAVE A HATEFUL DIRTY MOUTH,WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE. AT LEST TRUMP RESPECTS THOSE WHO HAVE SERVED.AND AS FOR CHRISTIANS,WE HAVE AS MUCH RIGHT AS YOU DO TO OUR OPINIONS.

      • you don’t want to go there as the list of the deferred democrats is long and funny some like John Kerry went into the coast guard to not go to Viet Nam but shazam they called on the coast guard for the small fast river boats and Mr. Kerry had to go. al gore went as a reporter writing feel-good pieces for the generals from behind the lines in sigon while playing basketball.

        • Jonathan, Jonathan, guess what neither one of the people you mentioned are THE PRESIDENT OF OUR UNITED STATES OF AMERICA!!!! HELL AT LEAST THEY WENT, YOU THINK REPORTERS DON’T GET KILLED IN WARZONES??? Why do you guys continue to kick this man’s boots when all he does is lie, Rob us of our MONEY(MARO LAGO)and such, he’s STOOD with White Supremacists ( Good people on both sides) and has no concern for people less fortunate than his rich friends!! Just told them you guys are going to make a lot of money after signing tax ripoff!!!

    • A L L C I T I Z E N S H A V E T H E R I G H T T O P R O T E S T. N O O N E H A S T H E R I G H T TO DEFINE H O W O N E C A N P R O T E S T. TO DO SO IS TO D E N Y THE FREEDOM OF SPEECH.

      Sorry basic government 101

  11. Only the LIBTURDS AND SNOWFLAKES will watch the NFL.

    I am a US Veteran and find these taking a Knee protest total BS.

    I served my Country with Honor and Dignity and I am still a Patriot!

    NFL YOU CAN KISS MY ASS!

    • BITCHY, YOU’RE ALWAYS THROWING OUT RACE BAITING STATEMENTS, DO YOU EVEN KNOW ANYONE OUTSIDE OF YOUR RACE??? BY THE WAY I DON’T KNOW WHAT RACE YOU ARE, OKAY!! SO DON’T GO THERE WITH THAT BULLSHIT

      • You must be a totally uneducated person. The protest is all about race! The immoral disrespectful players who participate in these racist demonstrations are protesting the fact that those of their race are not given everything free, are thugs, rapists, thieves, and druggies who refuse to work to better themselves or their race. For some reason unknown to intelligent people they think somehow someone owes them something. There are millions of decent hard working black people out there who have done the right thing, stayed in school, learned a skill, gotten jobs and worked their way up just like almost every white man has to do. They are my friends and neighbors There are no free lunch’s!The very fact that these low IQ players are millionaires is proof that ANYONE of any race can be successful if they stay in school learn a trade and WORK to EARN what they want! No one owes them anything! If they refuse to follow the rules of society sell drugs belong to gangs remain uneducated, unskilled and just plain lazy they will always be so called discriminated against!

        • Their protest is for legal fairness. For some reason they do no like white people shooting at them fo no reason.

          Call it racist? Then who is the racist? In military members are taught to not be racist. Those who come out of the military racist, missed something.

  12. NFL players are the only professionals who can do anything they want and still keep their job. They can have long unkept hair and its ok. They can have tatooes all over their arms and its ok. They can go on the field and hit and grab other players and its ok. They can chew out the refs and its ok. Now they don’t need to stand for the national anthem thinking that’s freedom of speech and that’s ok too. What kind of an image is that sending to our kids and young adults? They have no rules of ethics or morals any more. Maybe its time the couches and staff made them act and look like the professionals they are supposed to be.

      • Amen!They will loose their millions cause no one watches anymore then When they live paycheck to paycheck then they just might get it!

      • I hope they do go belly up I say give them and all the ungrateful movie stars a one way ticket out of the USA never to return let them find a better country
        We made them and we can break them
        Their all about ratings if we don’t support them they can’t support themselves PERIOD
        GOOD RIDDANCE TO BAD RUBBUSH

    • I no longer acknowledge that the NFL even exists! As far as I am concerned
      they can go back where they came from…wherever that may be.

      • Army Generals! You could look them up! You should know that laugh and learn from “George Denis Patrick Carlin” Were did sports come from.

    • I used to be an avid Fan of the NFL but since they started disrespecting the National Anthem and the American flag I refuse to turn on any NFL game. According to some of the networks the number of people who used to watch the NFL on TV has dropped drastically!!!! The networks are losing some of their bigger sponsors who are tired of this BS. College football is more exciting any way. I hope all these NFL Stars realize that it won’t be much longer before they will find that their salaries are going to be affected by their stupidity!!!! I understand that many of the different stadiums have a ton of empty seats which only means smaller ticket sales and less money being spent on drinks and snacks at the stadium.
      I am a retired Veteran and lost a lot of good friends who were defending these idiots rights to live a free way of life.

    • IF WE THE “FANS” DON’T GO TO THE GAMES, WATCH THEM ON T.V.. DON’T BUY THEIR JUNK THEY SELL. THAT WILL ULTIMATELY BRING THEM TO THEIR KNEES (NO PUN). SEND THESE PUSSIES INTO COMBAT AND SEE HOW TOUGH THEY ARE!!!
      WATCH GOLF THEY RESPECT THE FLAG & OUR SERVICEMEN & WOMEN!!!!

    • Congrats to the President, the Secretary of Defense and the rest of the President’s cabinet for a job well done. Thank God The Felon didn’t win the 2016 election.

  13. While the NFL players may have the right to protest the National Anthem, pretty sure they are Violating NFL rules. And, while they protest the National Anthem, American Citizens have a RIGHT to PROTEST the acts of a bunch of spoiled millionaires & billionaires. HIT ’em in the wallet! Let’s see how Cheap those ads during NFL football games can get?

      • Blackwing & Nancy, unfortunately it will never happen there are too many weak minded followers in today’s society. We should have been done with them the day the slime kaperdick started it, but as you’ve seen the fan’s of today totally ignored it by attending the games, they’re as low as the oppressed clowns they cheered for!

  14. The fact that these NFL players, coaches, managers and owners are lifting the leg on a public that makes them millionaires is secondary. What makes this action truly despicable is that America has given us all a gift that these bozos clearly take for granted – Freedom. If they had any understanding of the world and cared to look at our nation through anything other than glasses tinged with sanctimonious hatred and a credo of class entitlement, they would see how rare the gift of Freedom is. They would also realize they owe a debt to those who fought and died for our freedom that could never be repaid. This is what makes their actions perverse and yes, evil.

    • These ungrateful, selfish, arrogant players, for one don’t care what anyone thinks because they are still getting their full paychecks. These uneducated thugs have denegrated: the game, the fans, our veterans, other players, and our education system. They have squandered the scholarship money that was given to them to attend a fully paid tuition college, only to be shuffled through to play football! This scholarship money should have been spent on people who will actually contribute to this country. The NFL has tried to con the American people into thinking these NFL players are educated by introducing them by which college they were shuffled through. What a scam. Gone are the days of intelligent, respectful players like: Emmit smith, Jerry Rice and that whole era of great players. We are now stuck watching a bunch of , ( I would like to say, with all due respect, but that does not apppy here), Animals! Because that is what they look and act like. As far as the people who are still participating in this farce, Shame on you!!

  15. Myself a vet; many family members best of various wars, & my daughter a police officer; that flag & Anthem represent ALL those who have/who put their lives out there for EVERY Black, White, Asian, Hispanic, & Native American to live & make of their lives what each chooses. We have SO much & are what we are because of them. RESPECT is all they ask. Please respect this nation’s heroes by respecting the flag during OUR national anthem.

  16. How can these players claim racial injustice in this country when their making unreal money to play a football game. The NFL is over 60% African American. There are no white cornerbacks in the nfl. There are basically no white running backs but yet they are descriminated against. I used to love to watch the NFL but I’m done. Do they not realize for them to get the freedom of speech to disrespect the flag how many people died for that right. A flag is more then a piece of cloth but when I look at the flag I look at all the people that have died for that flag. I can’t support a organization that allows that because my grandfather was a World War I veteran & have the flag that was on his casket proudly displayed in a case in my house. My great great grandfather fought in the civil war for the Union to end slavery. So when these African Americans are kneeling their not only disrespecting the flag but my family also. So NFL players when you’re kneeling for the anthem & when you’re driving that fancy BMW or Mercedes think my family for the right to do that. Colin Kaepernick thank you for the division you’ve caused in this country & I hope you never need the help of a police officer.

  17. These overpaid whiney nincompoops playing just a kids game with their dirty, smelly hair down to their waist couldn’t be pimple on a real man’s ass…..
    SEMPER FI

  18. Those unpatriotic rich bums should all watch the Quincy High School football team run onto the field before last Friday’s game. All the players ran onto the field carrying a large American flag and STOOD for the national anthem. The team has both black and white players.
    The town is very proud of this team. Quincy, Illinois. By the way they beat Rock Island badly, whose players took a knee.

    • Wow! I was actually searching for this name and didn’t expect to find any results. Back in the 90’s, I administered a lot of DEC VAX machines and on our test system created an account for Arthur Samuel Shole in order to test security changes.

      • WAY TO GO MR SECRETARY ! BUT UNFORTUNATELY THEY DO NOT GET IT PAID TOO WELL AND AND DO NOT REALIZE THE OPPERTUNITES THEY HAVE IN THIS COUNTRY THEY STAND IN OTHER COUNTRIES FOR THEIR ANTHEM AND KNEEL FOR OURS A DISGRACE THEY SHOULD MOVE TO THOSE COUNTRIES! AMERICA FIRST!

  19. has ther been a list put together of all these “protesters ” and their combined salary tht is paid for by ticket users and sponsors, goodell makes 44 million a year

  20. WORD to NFL…..the Veterans made it possible for you all to become mult-millionaires playing games….. so be civil, respect those who sacrificed so much for very little pay so you would have “play time”.

  21. I am a 21 yr. Veteran. These pampered millionares disrespect the Anthem, The Flag and the Country and me! I will not watch the NFL or, buy anything related to the NFL.

  22. Those players who did not stand tarnished the sport but lack of positive input from liberal coaches, owners and the media May have triggered its downward spiral.
    Liberals don’t seem to get it; we are still proud of America and will demand we stand up for our sacrifices. Our President demands it also; those who oppose this basic America value are not one of us, and should be looked at as such.
    And, if you don’t like this country, see how far your antics would be tolerated in Iran, China , Russia, or NOrth Korea!!!!

  23. Since they argue that kneeling is freedom of speech and it doesn’t matter if it offends anyone because it is protected under our Constitution ( written by our founding fathers who based it on their Judah/Christian beliefs), then Christians can display anything in a public or private setting that shows their faith to our All Mighty God. Therefore Tebow needs to receive an apology before every televised NFL game for being told he could not pray and if he was fined, receive a refund. In fact all athletes who are Christian should pray anytime they feel the need to; before, during or after a game. The coach that was fired because he prayed after the game by himself on the field, needs to immediately be rehired. All the crosses that were taken down because someone said it offend them, must be put back up. All nativities must remain up during Christmas. Christians need to say Merry Christmas; not happy holidays. Children have the right to pray in schools. Schools must allow the pledge. If anything good came out of this disgusting demonstration of ungratefulness, is that Christians can no longer be persecuted by the very people (liberal left) who claim that it is a constitutional right to take a knee, even if it is offensive to so many. Christians have been attacked way to long! WELL NO MORE! And a news flash for those wealthy spoiled snow flakes (the same people who are offended when someone says all lives matter) who kneel during our anthem and before our flag, this great country also allows you to leave if you don’t like living here. I would suggest you try, N. Korea, Iran, Cuba or even Venezuela. Please make the ticket one way and forfeit your citizenship to the greatest country on earth that has done more for humanity than you ever will. Also it is about time pro sports, that is a business, follow the EEO requirements. It doesn’t matter if all the athletes are the fastest or tallest or strongest out there; you must provide a job to people who want to play professionally, even if they don’t fit the mold. It is a business, therefore you must provide opportunity for all, especially those 6’5″ and under. God Bless this Great nation and those who sacrifice to protect it!

  24. If he’s half the “Mad Dog” he’s supposed to be, SecDef Mattis — will tell the NFL that if the owners can’t get a buncha multi-millionaire ‘roid ragers to at least STAND STILL during the national anthem at the 2018 SuperBowl instead of bobbin’-n-weavin’, then there’ll be no honor guards or flyovers – period

  25. Aren’t they all paid with American Money? Maybe they should refuse getting paid and donate all their money to the Veterans who fought for them without even knowing them. Better yet, FINE them and use the FINED money to go to the Veterans Organizations.

    • WOOOOW!!! NOW WHERE IS ALL OF THAT COMING FROM, REALLY PEOPLE LIKE YOU BLACKWINGA520 ARE NOT PART OF THE PROBLEM YOU ARE THE PROBLEM!!! BY THE WAY IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT RACE YOU ARE, IF YOU THINK LIKE WHAT YOU JUST POSTED YOU ARE EXACTLY WHAT’S WRONG IN THIS COUNTRY!!! THERE ARE GOOD AND BAD PEOPLE IN EVERY PART OF LIFE!!! BY THE WAY WHY THE HANDLE AND NOT YOUR REAL NAME!!!

      • Yeah I know, there are NO bigoted blacks right? Hmmmm, let’s see, the black panthers, Farrakhan, BLM, thugs in some of our bigger cities calling for killing white cops and beating up or killing any cracker walking down the street, shall I go on?

        • Did you not read my response, Brother?!! Many of the very name’s you just mentioned are organizations that only stand for what OUR GREAT COUNTRY STANDS FOR!!!! Now are there fools among them of course, HELL YEA, and I challenge anyone to say different!!! And to call for anyone to be killed or beaten or anything but helped is a DAMN FOOL, DO YOU HEAR ME, DO YOU FEEL ME, ARE YOU LISTENING!!! I NOTICE YOU KEEP SAYING THUGS, TALKING ABOUT CITIES!! BROTHER YOU ACT AS THOUGH THOSE VERY SAME THINGS AREN’T BEING SAID IN THE REVERSE ALSO!! YOU SEE MY BROTHER WE CAN’T HAVE IT BOTH WAYS, AS A PEOPLE I MEAN BLACK, WHITE, HISPANIC WHATEVER WE ALL HAVE TO SURVIVE TOGETHER, TOGETHER, TOGETHER!!! STOP FUELING THESE FLAMES MAN AND LET’S LOOK FOR SOLUTIONS, GO TALK TO SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T LOOK, THINK, ACT LIKE YOU!! SEE WHERE OTHERS ARE COMING FROM, I LOVE TO HAVE THESE CONVERSATIONS BECAUSE 9 OUT OF 10 TIMES WE ALL WANT THE SAME THING AND WANT TO GET THERE TOGETHER REGARDLESS OF RACE!!!!

          • I was riding home the other day on a bike (not motorcycle) along a main street about 12:30 pm in which there are whites and black living, minding my own business and there were a couple dogs barking at me from an upstairs porch. There were some black guys and maybe 1 girl on a porch below and next door, maybe 4 or 5 , I slowed down to look back at the dogs (to make sure they weren’t running at me) and someone on the porch said something to me (didn’t understand exactly what they said) but I know it was directed at me, Was that really necessary? I never said anything to them to warrant a response.

          • Hey Brother obviously no matter what’s said you to try and soothe your paranoia, you have something going on! NOW THESE BLACK FOLKS WHO LIVE WITH WHITE FOLKS MAY HAVE BEEN TELLING YOU DON’T WORRY ABOUT THE DOGS, THEY’RE LOCKED UP AND CAN’T GET TO YOU!! SINCE YOU COULDN’T MAKE OUT WHAT WAS SAID MY BROTHER!!! MAYBE THEY WERE REASSURING YOU THAT YOU WERE OKAY SINCE THIS WAS AN MULTI RACIAL NEIGHBORHOOD!!! CAN I ASK YOU WHY YOU USE THE HANDLE BLACKWING WHEN YOU SEEM TO HAVE SO MANY ISSUES WITH US?!!? HELL WE SHOULD BE HAPPY THAT WE CAN LIVE AMONGST EACH OTHER, BECAUSE AS A BLACK MAN BELIEVE IT OR NOT THERE ARE STILL PLACES THAT I GET BOTHERED IF I GO INTO!!! AND GUESS WHAT IT DOESN’T MATTER WHAT COLOR THE NEIGHBORHOOD IS!!! BUT THE DIFFERENCE IS IN THOSE BLACK COMMUNITIES THEY’RE SUSPICIOUS OF EVERYONE BO MATTER THE COLOR OF YOUR SKIN! IN THOSE WHITE COMMUNITIES IT’S BECAUSE OF THE COLOR OF MY SKIN!!! LAW ENFORCEMENT WILL CHECK YOU NO MATTER THE NEIGHBORHOOD! BUT THEY ONLY BOTHER WHITE PEOPLE WHEN THET FEEL THEY’RE IN A BAD BLACK NEIGHBORHOOD!!! IF A WHITE PERSON IS SEEN IN A PROMINENT, WELL TO DO BLACK NEIGHBORHOOD THEY WON’T BE BOTHERED BUT LET US ROLL THROUGH A WHITE ONE WE NEED TO KNOW THE ADDRESS WHERE WE’RE HEADED!!

          • Myself, I really don’t have a problem with MOST blacks, in fact I go to a beer store/bar in a white neighborhood to have some Craft beers (usually during happy hour at half price) and sometimes blacks come in and sit with us and we get along fine and don’t make them feel uncomfortable. I don’t think I’d be as welcome in a black bar. I chose the name blackwing because I hunt Crows and the A520 stands for a Browning Auto-5 20 ga. shotgun.

          • Exactly what I’m saying Brother and I don’t have a problem with MOST PEOPLE!! I bet you could go a BLACK BAR and no one would bother you, the same as those MOST BLACKS you drink with, but you keep harping on this COLOR ISSUE MY MAN!!! Can I ask you a question WHAT HAS A BLACK PERSON EVER DONE TO YOU, PERSONALLY??! THIS WHOLE THING IS ABOUT PEOPLE OF COLOR BEING TREATED UNFAIRLY BY THE SYSTEM MAN!; TELL YOU WHAT NEXT TIME YOU’RE DRINKING SOCIALLY, NOT DRUNK OKAY WITH SOME BLACK PEOPLE! IN A VERY CORDIAL WAY MAYBE GET ONE OFF TO THE SIDE AND ASK HIM OR HER ABOUT THEIR LIFE EXPERIENCES AND TALK ABOUT SOME OF YOURS!! AND I GOTCHA ON THE NAME MY BROTHER, HOPE YOU HUNT OTHER BIRDS TOO!!! LOL????????????

          • Thank you, so much, for one of the best messages I have read in a long time. I get what you are saying and I believe many more do, also. Very encouraging, very truthful. This message needs to be read by everyone wanting unity for our country. Thanks again!

  26. What Mattis failed to realize is that some of those that kneeled also served in the armed forces. And his armed forces did this so everyone had the right, no matter how much they made, to protest the inequalities of the citizens of this country. In addition, the protest was as large as it was because of the idiot in chief’s dumb comments to his base in Alabama. They were properly giving the Trumpster the finger and he deserved it. Then he comes out for making it easier for the players to get concussions. What a jerk.

    • Howard,
      . . . . Go do some research and get your facts straight. You are operating on the false premise that the blacks are being suppressed by the whites and police. This is just not true. You are buying into the msm aka communist propagandist machine.
      . . . . Just the opposite is true of what they are saying. The blacks are being suppressed by the democrats aka communist party of the US and other blacks. Most black are killed by other blacks. Are there bad police officers out there? Of course.
      . . . . The truth is the police are more likely to arrest or shoot a white person than they are a black person. The apparent disparity comes about because almost %80 of the crime in the country is committed by black people. This is only going to get worst because the communists have infiltrated almost of of the major cities and a lot of the state governments. Because of Antifa and BLM these mayors and governors have told their police forces to stand down and not enforce the law. Both of these groups are the brownshirts of the communist party. This is being paid for by george soros a died in the wool communist and a person that hates our country.
      . . . . Please don’t take my word for it. Go and do the research for yourself. Also don’t you ever disparage our President again. I will report you to the FBI as a subversive.
      America: Love It or Leave It!
      GOD Bless and GOD Help us,
      rich!

      • You said exactly what I’ve known for a long time but never did research on the subject. We all know you’re right, but the truth is bitterly painful, and an embarrassment to admit. Remember, it’s their own people committing the most crimes. So take that into your argument the next time you want to point these things out, because frustration and rage could fuel an unwanted effect as they defend their “Black Pride.”

    • People have the right to protest, WE GET THAT, we just don’t want to see their political views at a football game, we watch to be entertained and that’s it! Do it somewhere else (like in front of city hall or a police station or suffer the financial consequences.

      • Then guess what the protesters will be WRONG FOR BLOCKING ACCESS, WRONG FOR TAKING UP THE POLICES TIME!!! Let’s keep it real we have real problems and until we get open-minded about what’s happening, the bigger the stage the better to get your message out!! AGAIN NOT ABOUT DISRESPECTING THE ANTHEM,FLAG OR SOLDIERS!!! IT’S ABOUT INJUSTICE, UNFAITHFULNESS, INEQUALITY!! PLEASE JUST FIND A REASONABLE PERSON OF ANOTHER COLOR NO MATTER WHAT COLOR YOU ARE AND TALK ABOUT THIS STUFF!!! NOTE I SAID REASONABLE!! NOT SOME RACIST WHITE, BLACK, YELLOW,RED, BLUE OR GREEN PERSON OKAY!! SOMEONE WHO LOVES PEOPLE FOR WHO OR WHAT THEY ARE

    • Howard- you are obviously a subversive!! Your disparaging comments about MY/ OUR president have earned you a file in the FBI’s radical subversives list and while you might think that is a thing to be proud of, make no mistake, it is NOT an honorable list to be on.

  27. Lets face it, NFL is no longer a sport but a pansy club for overpaid assholes. Leave them to their steroids and whining. They are sucking the taxpayers all dry for what? As far as I am concerned, they no longer provide a form of entertainment so what else do they have to offer? As far as I am concerned, ALL the teams suck! Maybe it is because of ownership and management but I used to be a big fan and for the past 10 years, I would only celebrate if the stadiums are all empty. I will just start watching Manchester United. Screw these pansies.

  28. If you don’t respect this country. And disrespecting all the men and woman who have and do make it possible for you to have freedom. Leave and find your place….LOL There is no better place than the USA. I will not watch a football game or attend game again!!!

  29. I am tired of the liberals tearing down and dividing the people of this Country to take over and change us. If people want respect be respectful. Jesus is our ultimate example to follow. If we all did this what a peaceful place America would be.

  30. They are protesting the very thing that has given them the right to protest. Are they protesting the time the flag stood for ending slavery. When State fought State, County fought County, family fought family, and gave their lives to free someone they might never meet. Or are they protesting when the flag when it stood against Hitler with his Darwin inspired War on the World to exterminate every race he thought was polluting the human gene pool. I’d like an answer to that. This was all started as a scheme by a player that couldn’t cut the mustard any more to stay in the lime light and keep him rolling in millions

  31. Here is why any sport player does not have a right to bring their adjenda to the game. Sports became popular during the WW’s when wives an children were working in the factories. Everyone was depressed for a lot of good reasons. The idea of getting together an playing a game (which was baseball) was so everyone, family, friends, blacks, mexicans, etc. could for a couple of hours forget the politics of what was going around the world an laugh, play, drink a beer, and relax. These athelics are nothing but thugs who don’t have one thing going to help their cause off the field so they are spending your money on your time.

  32. Every personal testimony at interviews, every volunteer hour spent teaching the youth of our country, every dollar given to youth organizations by these protesting professional players is labelled “hypocracy” by kneeling at a patriotic symbol like our National Anthem. The youth who can think this through, and their parents, should see this show as an example to disdain and ignore any future efforts to inspire them to become model citizens.

  33. People are not respected for whining and demanding that they be respected. Everyone knows that respect is earned. Disrespecting the flag, the country, and the people who have given their lives and fortunes for it is not the way to earn respect.

  34. Read the comments, and agree. Seems like the overwelming population solidly with our Flag, and anthem. Respect should be shown to all who have earned it! I plan on writing to sponsors (businesses) of those who cannot follow their own rule book, and show proper respect..

  35. These sniveling “weekend heroes” not only disrespect the Anthem and Flag, they disrespect the heroes who paid the ultimate price and came home draped under the American Flag so they can kneel and hold arms. Words cannot express my contempt for them.

  36. Players are held accountable for their actions after scoring a touchdown with a penalty and possible dismissal from the game…….Owners need to grow some BALLS and teach these “children” how to act during OUR National Anthem….God Bless America and our Troups!!!!!!

  37. “take a knee” is about the dumbest expression that I have ever heard, grow up and stop using your flag to further your own purposes.

  38. When those two NFL team, in their early Sunday morning game in England, too a knee when our National Anthem was played before the people of England. But they all stood up when the British National Anthem was played. This was a wholeheartedly embarassment for every patriotic (loving one country) American.
    The liberal media (who else) was silent on those who sacrifice their lives to protect our freedom and buried in Punchbowl Military Cemetary in Hawaii, those unknown Americans buried in France and of course those buried in Arlington Military Cemetary in Virginia.
    What about those men and women serving on U.S. Warships in the Korean Peninsula and those 28,000 Army troops in South Korea all ready to sacrifice their lives and protect our country in the face of a threaten missile attack by North Korea.
    After that great speech at the United Nation, President Donald Trump, a true American Patriot spoke out in a wrath against those who desrespect what our National Anthem and flag stands for. I am proud to be an American to have Donald Trump as my President.
    As a retired military veterans I stand for our National Anthem and flag. God Bless America

  39. If they want respect then they should show respect. The reason they are profiled or picked out of a crowd, is simple, if you run around on a 80 degree day, with a hoodie on with the hood pulled up, you are trying to hide something, most likely, not wanting to show your face, in other words you are trying to hide something, and that alone is a dead giveaway, so also act with respect, and don’t run around looking like a crook if you don’t want to be treated like one.and i agree if you don’t like our national anthem and our flag then get the Hell out of my country. because you also offend me.I served my time Defending our country and I’m sick of these Guys trying to trash everything we fought to defend

  40. Yes, we defend the country so these rich crybabies can get penalized for hitting another player too hard. Go to the streets if you want to protest, so I don’t have to look at your sorry ass! I stopped watching the NFL like millions of other people. It won’t be long until the money runs out and the NFL will change iis rules.

  41. This is the legacy of grievance politics/ identity politics that the left has cooked up and enthusiastically embraced by the Democrats to take the spotlight off their abysmal policies that spawned ignorance, violence, destruction and mayhem that is rapidly bringing our great country to its knees… thank you Obama, And all the “useful idiots that voted for you

  42. Kelton? I agree but there are other ways for these men to demonstrate against the unfairness they feel. The disrespect they are showing to our Vetarans and those who have sacrificed their lives for our freedoms is not the way to do it. I had such high hopes for Obama’s presidency but instead, he took race relations back at least 50 or 60 years!! How sad!

    • No Dee, he didn’t others did! Everything the man tried to do was blocked by The GOP. Please WE have to stop this mess. Even when he tried to implement The GOP’s ideas he was shut down, remember?!?! His very citizenship was repeatedly called into question because he was the only President we’ve ever had who looked different!!! All I ask is that you all think about the TRUE ISSUE!! REMEMBER A RETIRED SOLDIER IS THE ONE WHO SUGGESTED THAT COLIN KNEEL INSTEAD OF SIT ON THE BENCH!!! AND LOOK WHERE IT’S GOTTEN US AS A COUNTRY!!??? No matter how, what, when,or where this protest was done or is done, it’s going to be wrong in people who think we as Black People should just shut up and be happy!!! Some of the replies I have read are downright scary!! No the words MONKEY, INGRATE, AND OF COURSE THAT N WORD have come flying out!!! Go back where you came from, REALLY!!! WHAT PEOPLE FORGET IS THE ONLY ONES OF US FROM THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA ARE THE INDIGENOUS PEOPLE (NATIVE AMERICANS)!!! This country I LOVE is still the GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!! See I’ve been to a few others and actually lived with the citizens of those countries. I deplore disfiguring OUR FLAG, DISRESPECTING OUR SOLDIERS ALIVE OR DEAD BUT THIS IS NOT ABOUT THAT!!! BY THE WAY PRESIDENT TRUMP DODGED THE DRAFT JUST AS MANY OTHER RICH AND I’M GONNA SAY IT WHITE PEOPLE WILL DO IF IT’S IMPLEMENTED AGAIN!!! OF COURSE MANY MINORITIES WITH THE FINANCIAL MEANS WILL DODGE IT TOO!!!Just like the past the LESS FORTUNATE NO MATTER THEIR COLOR, GENDER, RELIGION AND WHATEVER ELSE WILL HAVE TO SERVE

      • Kelton- you are the epitome of ignorance that is evident when you make the indefensible statement that BHO did not set race relations back to pre civil rights era status!! All one has to do is examine his immediate responses to tragic events to be be made keenly aware of this! For goodness sakes, he was POTUS, he owed the COUNTRY a better example than a man willing to rush to judgement before knowing any of the facts pertaining to the event! If he had done this one time and then made an apologetic statement for judging unfairly while ignorant of the facts it might have been forgivable. He could not do this. He repeated this same offense over and over without ever issuing ANY apologies! And because HE touted his race at every opportunity, HE turned each and every instance of HIS incorrect responses into s race issue- turning back the click on race relations nearly nation wide. The only places I have seen that have remained unaffected by his actions so far as race relations go are all in rural America where men are men and take responsibility for their own actions and beliefs. These areas are the very regions the liberal left has attempted to convince the nation are hotbeds of bigotry and racism.
        Grow up, move out of Mom and Dad’s basement, listen to some REAL people instead of the professors of social sciences you have obviously worshipped for past years at someone else’s expense. I believe you will find a country which, except for the few centers of high population, are exactly what you seem to believe you would like to see!!

        • Gunny, let me get something straight, as a person ANY person your life experiences tend to make you who you are!!! Not just one but them as a whole!!! I’m willing to bet that you haven’t had anyone call the Police on you when you’re trying to unlock the door to your house have you? All because you don’t look like you belong there and you’ve lived there for years!!! President Obama was the ONLY PRESIDENT. to ever have his citizenship questioned, WHY DO YOU THINK THAT WAS SO??? He was raised by his White Relatives and that uniquely qualifies him to have a perspective that most of us don’t have, same as three of MY OWN CHILDREN!!! You all and by that I mean anyone who ACTS AND I MEAN ACTS as if we DON’T HAVE A PROBLEM IN THIS COUNTRY IS JUST NOT BEING TRUTHFUL!!! PLEASE SIT DOWN WITH SOMEONE WHO DOESN’T LOOK LIKE YOU AND HAVE A OPEN MINDED CONVERSATION, HANG OUT AND MAKE AN ATTEMPT TO SEE WHERE THEY’RE COMING FROM!!

  43. NFL athletes demonstrating their ignorance, disrespect, and lack of appreciation is obviously some sort of epidemic. Does anyone know what the demonstrations are supposed to be about? These “athletes” have obviously become so rich they don’t need values like respect, consideration, appreciation, pride and dignity anymore. Isn’t the majority of these demonstrators people who think they are “Africans” more that Americans? Maybe they’re demonstrating because some of their ancestors were saved from being sacrificed to some crocodile god and brought to America alive. Maybe this is a new version of “Black Power” or “Black Lives Matter”(but white lives don’t). Maybe it’s because so many black people are killed while trying to resist arrest or trying to kill an officer doing his duty. Maybe it’s because they just have no respect for the country that has made them rich. They obviously have no respect for those heroes who have sacrificed to protect this country or for those who still do. That’s what standing for the National Anthem is about. One idiot athlete actually referred to the anthem posture as “worshipping a flag”. This type of ignorance has been tolerated too long. I don’t see any demonstrators going back to the Africa they have so much respect for.

    If these “demon” strators want to protest police brutality maybe they should amend any reasons the police become paranoid when a black criminal is involved. There is a tremendous disparity between crime rates of black criminals and all other people. Are they aware of the thousands of arrests made daily by officers doing what they are paid to do? Our police officers put their lives on the line every day. How many so called acts of ‘brutality” occur relative to the total arrests? I suspect that every known act has been well publicized. In fact many of the claims of brutality are against officers forced to defend themselves. According to black activists, black criminals are the only people subjected to “police brutality”. Yet black criminals are most likely to resist arrest, most likely to try to kill or try to kill officer, most likely to commit racial and sexual crimes, most likely to whatever. The black radicals think any arrest of a black person is an act of “police brutality”. In fact they obviously believe that a black person is not supposed to be arrested for anything. These people readily scream about so called “white privilege” in order to advance “Black Power”.

  44. I had 26 years in Military and those crybabies who scoffed up thousands in free education are complaining. I was never so fortunate as those bums, get millions for playing football and then disrespect our country.

  45. Also i left the one thing out if you half to put it in the rule book it will still defeat purpose of why we stand for the national anthem. This should not be catered to at all there is no room for disrepecting something that is over 200 yrs old.i spent 20yrs in the navy and got out in 2008 i seen stuff that was already happening before i got out the lack of respect for the military and for those who took an oath. But with the oath thing i swore to uphold no one has ever said it was done after i left the military to fight foreign and domestic terrorism so it looks like a lot domestic terrorism has started and with all the military veterans fill the same way iam sure that our military careers aren’t over yet we half to put an end to this anti american crap?????

      • Unlike Obama, President Trump would not take back a traitor into the military and with a promotion and back pay. Instead, their would be a court martial, dishonorable discharge and possibly locked up for many years.

  46. I spent 32 years in the Army and don’t appreciate using race against the dying and wounded soldiers and those who fought for our freedoms. Take a knee my butt. Sign up for the service and do something for your country instead of for yourself. The same goes for the owners and Goodall who condoned it. Go to a hospital and see vets with no arms or legs and think about what you just implied about them.

  47. Article hits the nail on the head. Many football franchises and players and coaches are liberals, and, thus explains the disrespect. Won’t change anything from them; the truth makes them embarrass themselves even more.
    Cut their big pay checks and cars and maybe they take notice but doubt it because part of the “give me culture” with no accountability and/or performance standards.
    Without the liberal owners, media and money, most of them would be out in the streets. And when you disrespect someone who has given their life for you, it is a real selfish behavior problem or a reality check one just can’t make.

  48. I agree, bring back the draft, ( all the players that kneeled for the Anthem ) they are just spoiled brats, need to grow up, the military will straighten them out ) in the meantime no NFL for me !!!!!’

      • Edward, there are enough radical racists that could be drafted that people like you would not have to be fighting with them. Those in charge would have them on the front lines and get all that shooting at others out of their system, and learn what it is like to have someone shooting back at them. It would be a quick and life shaping experience to say the least.

  49. This is a disgrace to the men and women that have served our great nation and the many that have gave their lives for our country.Thease are a bunch of dumb ass butt wipes that don’t deserve any attention for their actions.of course the race baiter’s and liberal Democrats with their mother Hillary Clinton leading the way.the bitch can’t figure out how she lost the election,thats easy,just listen to her what an idiot.

  50. I am appalled at the way this has taken shape…..now it’s a racist issue, right? Give me a break…! Obama’s legacy continues to tear down this country. Anyone who voted for him the 2nd time around should have their common senses checked, because you are an idiot…!

    • BUzzzzz racial problems exist everywhere but when Barack Obama was illegally installed in his White Mosque as an African foreign student racial issues exploded in this great nation like a volcanic eruption. His supporters have latched onto the hate and destruction like flies on excreta. To them having a part Black in the Executive Mansion meant they now have Carte Blanche privilege to break windows, set fires, invade homes and whatever other evils their feculent minds can come up with. Their latest anti-American behavior is to demonstrate during the playing and/or singing of the National Anthem. Incidentally those who cast votes for Barack Obama have never used common sense because they are lacking thereof. They vote by color of skin, not by content of character.

  51. The NFL is no longer a sports organization. It is an extreme left wing anti-American self-serving propaganda machine, which has no idea whatsoever what sports is all about. They are disgusting, and they make me want to vomit.

  52. I think the Gov. should DRAFT every one of the players that dissed the flag! Maybe a little time in a war zone would give them a better appreciation of what they have.

  53. I absolutely agree! If these billionaire owners would get some “American Back Bone” & take a stand & tell these spoiled, full- of- themselves players, either you do by the rules or just know if you want to make a spectacle of yourselves, please just take off that uniform throw it on the ground & get walk off the field! I am sure there are many guys who would love to have a chance to be on this team & follow the rules & become richer than they ever dreamed! Also, it would be entertaining to all spectators..if there any left who will be there. I know I am am a mere, senior woman, but I would be delighted to see the owners kick their butts out and build an even better team.i KNOW, I could do it! If the owners need an adviser during this process, I will make myself available anytime day or night. THIS IS SO IMPORTANT!! ATTENTION OWNERS! PLEASE GET SOME USA BACK BONE!!
    Evelyn C.Ham

  54. These crybabies have never defended anything or anybody except their stupidity and their multi-million dollar salaries for embracing a child’s game instead of working for a living.

  55. I’m an Air Force veteran and I was furious at these whining babies and I decided to not watch any more NFL games period. These fools are paid millions to PLAY, they don’t have a regular job. So they can stuff it.

  56. I had relatives that fought and died in world war II Korean & Vietnam wars will not watch another game until the spoiled millionaire s get on their feet and respect our anthem and flag.

  57. All players that protest and knelt should be banned from sports, lose all endorsements and the money from them. The only way for them to reenter sports is a mandatory 4 year term in the military on the battle front! When that is completed and they are honorably discharged, they can then return. Their DD-214 must be presented to regain eligibility to play!

  58. These professional players are the role models that children look up to. If they want to protest do it someplace else. Nobody says you can’t. However have the respect for the flag and country that allows you the freedom to do that. There are countries that would put you in front of a firing squad for protesting anything anywhere. RESPECT YOUR OWN RIGHTS by respecting the country, flag, soldiers, and everyone else that sacrificed for this country so that you could have them in the first place.

  59. terry bradshaw and mike tomlin (that’s right, small letters), they should shut up, or risk looking like bigger morons than they are currently seen as.

  60. In this great country you can say and do anything you want. Just be prepared to pay the consequences of your actions. Sometimes those consequences are law, sometimes they are public opinion. Ask the Dixie Chicks about that.

  61. The protesters have insulted everyone who has served in military action, from the patriots who fought with their squirrel rifles to those who fought in the Civil War to free the slaves to those who fought tyranny in WW I and WWII, and all the other wars too. It is not a matter of legality; it is a matter of gratitude and largess.

  62. I think it’s in insulting and disrespectful. There are other ways to protest but not against our flag and anthem. I believe people will register their protest against these by not watching or by writing their teams.

  63. Those who kneel for the Nation Anthem are traitors and cowards, and should not only be fired…..but should be banned permanently from professional sports!

    • I feel the draft needs to be put back and those who disrespect our country and flag should be called to duty in the military. Then we can take a few of these young punks that knows it all and teach them to be men and what respect is. Let them face a bullet or bomb or two I feel they would change their minds and become patriots who love their country.

      • Amen! Let’s also send all the gang bangers, who get their jollies off by shooting innocent people and driving off. Let them see what is like to go out and shoot someone who has a gun and looking to shoot them first. Those pansies would be needing diapers before going out to shoot others in order to actually defend our country and flag. Maybe if some of them are sent home in a box or witout a leg or two there might begin some realization of what it takes to live in and love our country, instead of using our country to get millions of dollars for playing a game, robbing a store, or selling drugs to young people. It would also help if they would stay in school and actually learn something useful, like speaking English instead of ghetto shit, which shows their stupidity and racisim in spades. Pun was not intended, but seems to work.

    • Question when you pray do you STAND OR KNEEL? Kneeling has forever been associated with submission or respect!!! As a VETERAN I served so that we have the right to protest for LEGITIMATE CAUSES and as Black Man this is s just cause and should be for all HUMAN BEINGS!!! This is about people of color being killed in the streets of OUR GREAT COUNTRY!!! Please stop pretending that you all can’t see what’s happening to us out here!!! It hurts to know people you work with everyday think so little of you as a people that they’re totally ignoring the message of HURT, PAIN, ANGER, DISAPPOINTMENT that you’re feeling about this issue!! The flag and anthem are sacred as are those of us who died, and those of us who served but survived!! BUT, are the ones of US who have been and still are being killed by the ones who are SWORN to protect US, any less important and if so please explain WHY?!?! Even with VIDEO AND AUDIO FOOTAGE of these MURDERS that we didn’t believe could be happening, they go free!! WHY BECAUSE I FEARED FOR MY LIFE!!! It’s like left of center in s traffic stop A CATCH ALL!!! Why is it that everytime people who have been and are being treated unfairly and stand up for themselves there’s a problem with it, no matter how it’s done,IT WILL NEVER BE RIGHT WITH THE ONES WHO FEEL THAT THEIR WAY OF LIFE IS BEING THREATENED!!

      • Sorry you feel so mistreated. But. Facts show that most f those people you mention were disobeying the law. If you try to Remove a gun from officers holster whether are white or black chances are you are going to die. If you want to live criminal life style. And make a cop feel threatened don’t redist arrest and maybe you will survive.

      • If you think the Police mistreat you, take a look at Black on Black crimes and Murders, in places like Chicago, New York, New Orleans, compare them to the number Police shoot, most the Police shoot are asking for it, the people in these places can be minding their own business, does not matter, I am not races if not for a Black Brother in the Marines I might not be here.

      • Maybe you and the folks that talk of protesting young blacks being shot down in the streets, should do the due diligence before you protest. I’m am speaking about the fact that the large majority of the shootings occur in neighborhoods where crime rates are the highest. Check out the democratically in those neighborhoods. I’m really tired of hearing this argument when it has no valid evidence of profiling before shooting. I know it’s a tough thing to swallow, but maybe you should be protesting to find a way to help the cause and not the results.
        And for the record, no one has done that, they always blame others for their own issues.

      • YUP YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO PROTEST ABOUT THE OPPRESSION THAT THE BLACK MAN HAS FACE…..A GREAT WRONG HAS BEEN DONE TO YOUR RACE….USING THE SYMBOL OF OUR NATIONAL PRIDE IS NOT THE WAY TO RIGHT THAT WRONG….THE BLACK RACE IS DISTANCING THE CHASM BETWEEN THEMSELVES WITH THIS TRAITOROUS BULLSHIT….THIS WILL NOT BRING THE SOLUTIONS WANTED

      • You are a disgrace to your nation. Being in the military did you once kneel when the anthem was played. Don’t say it’s a sign of respect because it is not. Free speech is a right but using the anthem for making a pathetic political statement disrespects those who have sacrificed so dearly for that flag and what she stands for. The left has shown just how pathetic they are. How come you are not protesting in favor of those people who s speech is shut down in Berkeley and all universities around the country? Don’t come on here and profess your blackness as a reason to disrespect the 80% in the country who see you and your ilk as UN American. If you kneel for anyone but God then you cannot be taken seriously The greatest divider in this country was Hussein OBAMA. He did nothing to bring America together. He hated the police and our military . Divided the country along racial, gender and economic status. He put us in danger by his foreign and domestic policies. I saw no one protesting his presidency and have a pretty good reason why not. The left including these protestors are hypocrites. Why don’t they just take less money if they are so concerned about inequality in pay. If not for this country and the freedoms it allows they would never be paid what they are paid. Also they might spend more time kneeling before God and praising Him for what they have and less time kneeling before the flag which represents one nation under God.

        • Irish, you are 100% correct! Thank God for those of us whose ancestry is from Ireland, as we were taught to respect ALL people and to do what we can to help all others. We also learn through our religion what God tells us to do in order to take care of our brothers and sisters, no matter their skin color. Remember it was God’s choice to give us the skin color we have!

          • Butchy, Butchy or should I say BITCHY?!?! YES I SERVED SO ASSHOLES LIKE YOU CAN GET ON THIS BULLSHIT SITE AND SPEW YOUR BULLSHIT!!! You don’t have to be a Liberal, Conservative or anything else to STAND AGAINST INJUSTICE, INEQUALITY, UNFAIRNESS, AND IN YA’LLS CASE COMMUNISM! THAT’S RIGHT I BET YA’LL CARED MORE FOR STRONGMAN PUTIN THAN PRESIDENT BARRACK OBAMA, HUH?!?

      • Response to James…..the majority of cities that have a high crime rate and murders have been controlled by the Democrats…..where was Obama for the eitght years of his administration? MIA – missing in action, along with the mayors…..

      • Get real! This was supposed to be a ball game not a political statement of racism. We were taught to pray while kneeling, standing, and/or sitting. This was not a religious come to Jesus moment. It is plain and simply a RACIST protest, as was your comment. Stop looking at skin color and begin looking at what you can do for others of ANY color. No one is perfect, but black people have no respect for others who have their own beliefs, especially if it is the belief of white Americans, who now actually go to work and give their best to their job and receive sometimes a fair salary for 12 months work with AT LEAST 40 hours a week, not a part-time job making millions of dollars playing a game a few months a year.

        • Please don’t take what I said with such venom, what did I say that could be construed as RACIST?!?! All I’m saying is try putting yourselves in our shoes!!! I guarantee you that we BLACK PEOPLE would be in your corner, meaning the overwhelming majority of US!!! Now why would you think that we don’t go to work for an honest days pay??? This type of uncaring, non sensical attitude is the problem in THIS GREAT, GREAT COUNTRY THAT I LOVE AND SERVED TO PROTECT!!! Why can’t you just try and understand the ISSUE IS REAL!!!! Are there Black People out there doing STUPID STUFF of course there is?!?! Are there WHITE PEOPLE out there doing STUPID STUFF of course there are!! So NO I will not let you tell me what I said was racist when all I said was let’s look at this from OUR angle!!! Listen if you know anyone of another race, any other race ask them if they mean any harm to WHITE PEOPLE and I guarantee that 90 percent would tell you that we all have to get along to make not just THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA GREATER, BUT THE ENTIRE WORLD!!! If we can’t bridge our divide how can we show the World how to bridge theirs!!!

      • If you and your black friends don’t want to die when stopped by Police, DON’T DO STUPID SHIT!!! like start reaching for something or start giving them a hard time or an ATTITUDE (this is usually the case). If you haven’t done anything wrong just do as they ask and you will leave alive.

    • AGREE 100% AS IT’S IN THE NFL RULE BOOK, PAGES A62-63 THAT ALL NFL PLAYERS, COACHES AND LEAGUES MUST STAND ON THE SIDELINES WITH HELMETS IN THEIR LEFT HAND FACING THE AMERICAN FLAG DURING THE PLAYING OF THE NATIONAL ANTHEM. THE FAILURE TO DO SO WILL RESULT IN SUSPENSIONS, FINES AND LOSE THEIR NFL STATUS. THIS IS JUST PART OF THE RULE.

    • Totally agree. These athletes are over paid selfish brats. If they don’t like our flag or country they should leave now and take their hate with them. I served seven years in the military and find it discussing that they disrespect the pledge. I’m a big sports fan but will not watch or go to another NFL game until the owners fix this.

    • No Sir. They are not, they simply are calling your attention to the sad fact that the police is murdering too many unarmed citizens!!!

  64. Turning MY TV off when games are on, that’s my protest! Start hitting these whiny Bitch Ngrs in the wallet, maybe it’ll bring em down a couple pegs.

      • Yep! tired of all their racist shite. Maybe IF they start acting like humans I’ll change my mind, but I don’t see that happening.

      • you are right this is not about race, it’s about pride in country.
        I served during the vietnam war and i’m seeing the same thing now
        that i saw in the sixtys

        • It IS about race, TO THEM! Everything is about race to them. They’re doing it to protest their kind getting shot by police and profiled.

          • You are exactly right blackwing — to them it is racial. Why elese would that moron bennett stand over a white player he just tackled with the black fist salute. Guess some on here just can’t handle saying it like it is — wanting to be all political correct with sugar coating everything.

        • I agree with you Bill. I remember coming back from Vietnam and having people screaming at us, calling us baby killer, and throwing eggs and tomatoes at us as we went from the aircraft to the terminal. Fortunately, there was a fence protecting us. No telling what might have happened if not for that.

          • If these chickens want to protest, let go to the street and open their mouths. Their hneeling is a sign of cowardice, not protest, these chickenshts think they are proving something; they are, they are showing us what they think of the men and women who fought and died for dainty asses. They all aught to be drafted and put on the front lines, wonder if they would take a knee or run like the cowards they are?

          • I can remember being told NOT to wear our uniforms off base, because of the dangers of doing so then. I think every kid out of high school should be REQUIRED to do at least 2 years of military service. Maybe if real history was taught in schools, and these kids had a taste of service beyond just serving themselves, they would have more respect for our flag, and the symbols associated with it.

        • Only one difference between now and them. You were spit on and called baby killers and the troops protecting us now are basically being called Racists. Either way it is disgusting and totally uncalled for. Thank You for your Service to our Country Sir.

          • Kaperdork was just trying to be relevant and that worked for him. He was three days form being cut but his little act kept him on the team that was afraid from being called racist so he got a pay check all year. 11,000 million dollars. So completely selfish and self serving.

          • They were pushed through school because they were playing ball, just a bunch of dumb punks. I had a friend who was teaching them in Cleveland and they told him if he didn’t want his car tore up he would pass them all.

          • If this is racism, then the time and place is NOT the football field during the National Anthem to perform some kind of demonstration, or protest. It would best be done on national television personal interviews with news reporters on CNN, NBC, etc. I see news all the time about race differences when a shooting happens between cops and black people… they seem offended that they were caught “misbehavin'” and think we target them because of their skin color. America had done more for black people than any other country in the whole world, and their gratitude (or lack thereof) is clearly displayed in their attitude toward white people. Examples? Try the American Negro College Foundation or Miss Black America. (I wonder what would happen if we had a “Miss WHITE America” or an American White College Foundation.) Try education, medicine, grants, jobs, freedom and other opportunities… All these things are not to be spit upon with scorn.

        • You are correct that this is EXACTLY like the 60s. It was a terrible time in our country. Young men and women were fighting for our country and the rest of us were worried about our loved ones and wondering if they would ever come home alive, or in what condition. I lost my fair share of friends who fought in Vietnam, came home disfigured, or with less limbs.

          Over time it seemed to be getting better and less racial nonsense. Then Obama got in the White House and it all exploded all over again! When the “President” of the United States was pushing HIS BLACK AGENDA, the liberals went wild backing his agenda. It does not seem that anyone in this country hates Caucasians more than Barry and Michael Obama! He was a huge sports follower and kissed their asses every chance he could and they loved being invited to the White House, as it was a great honor.

      • STOP BEING WEAK AND LETS CALL THIS WHAT IT REALLY IS…..A WAR ON WHITE SUPREMECY….WHICH EQUALS A WAR ON THE WHITE RACE….SO TAKE THAT BIG BLACK C.CK OUT OF YOUR MOUTH, WIPE THAT N.GGER C.M OFF YOUR CHIN AND SAVE YOUR WHITE GUILT BULLSH.T

    • So they will receive One Million in stead of two, wow! they have to go to McDonald’s, no more prime ribs or prime steak? You are not only missing the issue but the boat too!!

  65. These players that refuse to stand during the National Anthem are basically shooting themselves in the foot with this stupid little stunt. Soon, with the enormous controversy concerning this act of defiance, I think they will start seeing their crowds (and pocketbooks) get substantially smaller. It’ll be interesting to see what next weekend’s turnout and home viewing audience will be like for every game. Freedom of speech? No, this is simply a slap in the face of every American, and especially the people who fought and died for our freedoms. What I say is, if you disrespect my country, I disrespect YOU!!

        • they need to be put on the front line of a war. then let them speak again.as far as education! i worked at a collage that fed them before every game and heard how the professors didn’t make them turn in home work. that is why there so stupid..they could for the life of them make 2×2 come out to be 4… There more brawn than brain for sure.

          • You are absolutely right most of them wouldn`t be smart enough to get a job. They are the racists and don`t belong in our country. We do not owe these people anything.

          • TRUMP HAS NEVER SERVED THE COUNTRY AND WHEN HE CALLED THEM OUT TRUMP DIDN’T EVEN STAND WITH HIS HAND OVER HIS HEART BUT HIS WIFE AND SON DID!! TRUMP NEEDS TO GROW UP AND GET OVER THIS AS LOOK WHAT HE HAD RUSSIA DO!!!!

      • I agree fire the lot of them/I spent 22 years in the United States Ir Force putting my life on the line every day defending this great nation. Boo on all those who disrespect the flag and country that I hold so dear

        • That’s right, 22 years on the front lines keeping the sea lanes open. Going into harms way in the time of war! I don’t need any credit, but I did my job, and IF these cry babies want to cry, let it be behind the mine fields and the missel encampments and off the shores of hostile enemies! These cry baby football players need to spend some time where the seas are rough and the enemies hate you, and see what it’s like! I say, STOP your crying and be an example to follow, rather than make me sick!

      • Jeff and et al,
        . . .I completely agree with you. More than that is that these thugs are cowards and traitors. The players, coaches, and owners are guilty of Sedition, Subversion, and High Treason during wartime. They should all be arrested and tried on these charges. These charges are Capital Offenses.
        America: Love It or Leave It!
        GOD Bless and GOD Help us,
        rich!

      • I quit watching the NFL as of 9-25-17. I found myself wishing that these morons would get hurt. It didn’t take long to realize that I don’t need this. I’ve been a 40 year fan, but, surprisingly, I don’t miss it.

    • I deplore this despicable action displayed by the NFL president, some players, some coaches and some owners. The flag and anthem are what this country is all about. If you want to protest, do it on your own time, in civilian clothes, not in your pithy team jersey. A little history study is in order for these reprobates.

      • If they need to protest something, go to Chicago and protest the injustice of people being murdered and that number is rising. Make your protests mean something. GOD , FAMILY , COUNTRY + ? ? ? … WE ARE BLESSED, COUNT YOUR BLESSINGS ; DO NOT LOOK FOR A GRIPE !

      • Yes but will the fans do anything about it? They who protest including the gutless owners and commisioners are betting this will blow over . I am not watching any games this season or on the future . Unless millions do the same it will become common practice to disrespect this country and those veterans and families who sacrificed . Not only that. Instead of booing why don’t the fans just leave after the anthem? It’s the only thing to do if they really put this country over the NFL or the NBA. If the other sports do the same, massive protests are in order. These over paid performers (that’s all they are) should never be allowed to disrespect this flag or this country. I wouid just as soon they leave. They hate this country so much just leave . I am dissapointwd that a bronze star ranger would actually appoligize for standing for our anthem. He is actually worse than the rest because he knows better. These other losers know care nothing about the 80% who are totally against their actions. I will no longer watch ESPN either. They are run by left wing nut jobs and all their announcers care more about pampering these seditionists than sticking up for our flag and the vast majority of the fans. They can all go to hell because it’s where they belong.

        • Better yet, don’t buy any overpriced tickets for a game and stay home, make the OWNERS pay for what the players do. The only way they will ever do anything about it is if it takes money out of their already rich pockets.

          • I have stopped watching football and thanks to james (small j on purpose) no more basketball also. Did anyone besides me watch the DIY show where Nicole Curtis was supposed to help james remodel a home for a black family? Well if you noticed Nicole did all the work while james was hardly ever there, but got all the praise. No more sports shows,and no more ESPN. 82nd Airborn Pathfinders.

          • Damn man, you really had to inject race into your comment!!!! Who cares what color the family was!?!? They were people in need and guess what, how many athletes, who are Superstars if Lebron James is who you’re referring to actually help out off camera?? Man these people believe it or not have many charitable things going on at once as well as their personal lives!!! Let’s be glad that they care enough to help any family no matter what the color of their skin!!! Damn man and YOU WERE A PATHFINDER??! You served beside your FELLOW SOLDIERS OF ALL COLORS!!! YOUR LIFE IN THEIR HANDS, THEIR LIFE IN YOURS!!! WOULD YOU, DID YOU DO ALL YOU COULD FOR YOUR FELLOW SOLDIER!! BROTHER US SOLDIERS ARE THE LARGEST FRATERNITY IN THE WORLD!! NO MATTER WHAT COUNTRY WE SERVE WE ARE SOLDIERS!!! YOU MAY BE SHOOTING AT YOUR ENEMY NOW AND BANDAGING HIM TWENTY MINUTES LATER!! WE’RE AMERICANS DAMNIT AND WE LEAD BY EXAMPLE NOT HATE, BIGOTRY,AND ALL THIS MESS THAT PEOPLE ARE TRYING TO MAKE THIS OUT TO BE MAN!!!! DON’T FORGET THERE ARE BAD BLACK POLICE OFFICERS WHO DO THESE THINGS TO,SO IT’S ABOUT INJUSTICE, UNFAIRNESS, INEQUALITY OF PEOPLE OF COLOR!!! PLEASE LET’S NOT GET THIS TWISTED!!! I LOVE YOU MY BROTHER IN ARMS, MY SISTER IN ARMS, MY TRANSGENDER FELLOW MAN OR WOMAN IN ARMS!!!! WE ALL BLEED RED, IF YOU BELIEVE IN THE BIBLE WE ALL EVOLVED FROM ADAM AND EVE!!! NOW WHAT’S THE REAL DAMN PROBLEM??!!

          • I sold my season tickets and trashed my NFL clothes. These uneducated thugs need to find another dumb sucker. I’m done.

        • The Bronze Star Ranger did not apologize for standing for the National Anthem. He did apologize for not showing unity with his team. They stayed off the field. Two different things.

          • Have you notice how they all blacks use the same excuse?? how many white players are on any foot ball team?
            they have equal rights ,but there are to many blacks in the pool of thieves, murders, and liars.
            NOW STICK THE PITIFUL ACT UP WHERE THE SUN DON’T SHINE.
            WHO HAS THE HIGHEST CRIME RATE? CHICAGO. ST.LOUSE< CLEVELAND,MICHIGAN. WHAT ARE THE RATE OF MURDER FROM OTHER STATES??
            SO STOP YOUR BULLSHIT HOW BAD TOUR MISREATED. YOU COMMIT A CRIME YOUR GOING TO PAY FOR IT NOT YOUR COLOR <YOUR CHARATOR OF ACTING LIKE YOUR FROM THE ERA OF THE OK CARROL.
            IF YOU HAVE THE MENTALITY FOR EXCEPTING THE TRUTH. THE BLACKS PUT THERE OWN PEOPLE SOLD THEM INTO SLAVERY.
            OBAMA'S FATHER WAS A SLAVE TRAITOR. AND PARTS OF AFRICA THERE STILL SELLING THERE PEOPLE INTO SLAVERY. THERE IS PROOF OF THAT IF YOU HAVE ENOUGH INTELLIGENCE GOES PAST THROWING A PIG SKIN ACROSS A FIELD, TO RESEARCH IT.
            STOP SHOWING YOUR IGNORANCE.HAS ENOUGH OF THE SAD SONG BEING PLAYED OUT OF KEY.

          • IT’S THE ANGER, THE VENOM, THE LACK OF COMPASSION, THE HATE THAT HAS DORIE SO UPSET THAT WHOEVER THEY ARE THEY CAN’T SEE STRAIGHT TO SPELL CORRECTLY!! THEY ARE IN SUCH A HURRY TO GET THEIR VILE THOUGHTS OUT THAT THEY DON’T CARE HOW IT LOOKS, AND HAS THE NERVE TO CALL US IGNORANT!!! AIN’T THAT THE POT CALLING THE KETTLE BLACK?!?!!????????????????????????????????JUST SAYING!!!

      • Football has become nothing but an overpaid pansy sport. I quit watching years ago since we had to buy a stadium via taxes that no one asked me but forced me to pay under the threat of losing my house. To me now, soccer is a tougher sport than footballer.

        • Same here and then a BANK comes along, pays $20M over 5 yrs to put their name on the stadium but only pays like .75% interest on a long term CD!

    • I stopped watching last year when that bozoo from San Francisco thought he would make a statement by not standing for our National Emblem. I will not be watching any pro sports until the owners, the front office and the players all apologize for this stupidity. Ultimately, I guess I will never be watching any pro sports anymore because they are too boneheaded to think about an apology.

    • WANT TO KNEEL DO SO AT THE AIRPORT THAT BRINGS HOME THOSE FLAG DRAPED CASKETS OF THE MAN & WOMEN WHO DIED WHILE YOU DISHONOR THEM AND OUR COUNTRY TO FILL YOUR POCKETS >>DON’T LOVE AMERICA TAKE YOUR MILLIONS AND GET THE HELL OUT

    • WANT TO KNEEL DO SO AT THE AIRPORT THAT BRINGS HOME THOSE FLAG DRAPED CASKETS OF THE MAN & WOMEN WHO DIED WHILE YOU DISHONOR THEM AND OUR COUNTRY TO FILL YOUR POCKETS >>DON’T LOVE AMERICA TAKE YOUR MILLIONS AND GET THE HELL OUT

    • Ok we get it! now what do they want? we all know their
      just a bunch of over paid cry babies.piss on em. I’ll
      not watch another game..

    • Have no respect for those that don’t respect
      the American flag. If they dislike this country
      so much then please go to Yemen, Syria,
      Iraq and see if they welcome you.
      Gave up on watching them play / they aren’t
      worth my time or money.

    • Our brothers and sisters fought and many died for our country. If you think it’s bad here help by doing something to make it better. However , if you can’t show respect for our flag and what it represents please go to another country and see how much freedom you get.

      • And why not go back to the country where your ancestors were captured by other tribesmen and enslaved. See how that life is, has not changed much in the last 500 years or so. Help them and impregnate a few hundred young girls and then help them raise the babies.

        • Never happen! After the impregnation they’ll scatter to the four winds like smoke! Won’t have anything to do with raising babies. Too wimpy!

    • When the owners lose ticket money, TV viewers and advertisers, the players will stand, and gladly put their right hand over their hearts during the pledge of Allegiance.
      Always follow the money.

    • Here are the NFL’S own written rules on honoring our flag and national anthem. NFL RULE!! The specific rule pertaining to the national anthem is found on pages A62-63 of the league rulebook. It states:
      “The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem.
      “During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.
      There are a thousand reasons to protest and a thousand places to do so why has the NFL allowed some players to break their own rules and dishonor their country for protest’s that have no place at a sporting event. Fans come to the stadiums to get away from this nations problems and have a great time at the games. All these protest’s are meaning less compared to supporting the American Flag and National Anthem for all that have suffered and died defending this Nations Honor. These NFL protesters have every opportunity to express their First Amendment rights in other venue’s without dishonoring this Nations values.God Bless America. Trenton Spears

    • ITS SO DARN FUNNY….THESE SPOILED ROTTEN….. MOSTLY BLACKS….. ARE MAKING MILLIONS OF DOLLARS WHILE OUR SOLDIERS MAKE MINIMUM WAGE FIGHTING SO THAT THESE WHITE HATERS…..ANYBODY WHOSAYS I AM WRONG IS HIGHER THAN GIRAFFE P.SSY….CAN DISRESPECT THEM……THESE F.CKERS HAVE OUR CHILDREN WATCHING THEM DISRESPECT OUR FLAG….THEY SHOULD BE ALL EXECUTED FOR TREASON AND SEDITION….THIS IS A MASSIVE PROBLEM FOR OUR COUNTRY…..IT NEEDS TO BE IMMEDIATELY DEALT WITH

      • I agree with every word let these anti American low life scum bags go to another country and stay there. I will never watch any game of football again or any other sport that players disrespect our Flag or the brave men and women fought for this country. Most of them couldn`t get a job sweeping the streets.How long do they think they would last. God bless America and all our service men and women.

      • I AGREE 100 %…STOP WHINING AND PLAY BALL.YOU GET PAID MILLIONS TO PLAY BALL AND THEN YOU DISRESPECT OUR FLAG AND THIS WONDERFUL COUNTRY. ..FOOLS..GET OUT OF THIS COUNTRY IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT…WE WOULD BE BETTER WITHOUT YOU…

    • I know the. NFL. Players. Big strong. AHs. Get. In. Our. US Army. Get shot at. Legs blown off. Those. Men. Women are much stronger than. AHs. I will never wattch. A. Football game. Again. I will nottbuy. Anything from their sponsers. F them.

      • PS: I. Think. 50. PC. Of. Them will. F. Up. Like. OJ so. NFL. Players. Save your. $$$$$ for good lawyers. Again. There sponsors. Idont give a ship. If. They give me. Whatever. F. Them.

How many. NFL. So called players can say that. Miss. Ya. Mommy. AH. PS. Go. F. U R self. Yellowpageshave lawyerslisted. You will be using em.

    • I think you need to understand that Kaeperniks protest wasn’t about the flag, it’s a piece of cloth, it wasn’t about the anthem, it’s just a song. It was a statement of hatred to the USA. That is the position his supporters and the leagues’s sponsors need to understand.

    • Kneel when paying respect to the Lord and stand up for our country. If you can stand for a couple of minutes to honor all who have defended this country, you should. The NFL should give the respect to the country or go somewhere else. Burning the American flag falls in line with this atrocious behavior. If this country is ever going to recover, we must stay united with “GOD” and “Country.”

      Read the Bible and know, consequences will happen when we neglect why we are here. Follow the Lord’s example when Jesus came here to die for human sin. Read what He said while being both God and man. His Gospel is true and His existence is recorded, along with the many miracles He performed. He raised up Lazarus from death, even after Lazarus had been dead and placed in a burial cave for “4 days!” Jesus while man and God was killed as a man and Resurrected as God and man to His glory. Both of these events have been recorded by people who witnessed these miracles.

      • WHAT?!?! SO THE REAL REASON FOR THE PROTESTS DON’T MATTER??? IF ALL THAT YOU SAID ABOUT JESUS IS TRUE AND YOU TRULY BELIEVE IT, WHY ARE YOU TOTALLY OVERLOOKING THE TRUE REASON BEHIND THE PROTEST?!?! MURDER, INJUSTICE, INEQUALITY TOWARD YOUR FELLOW MAN!!! WHAT WOULD JESUS DO!!!!????

        • What would Jesus do? Do you remember what his reaction was when he saw a bunch of vendors set up their goods for sale in the Temple? He went into a rage, NOT because he was against the buying and selling of goods, but because they dishonored the “house of my Father”, and turned it into a “den of thieves.” And he didn’t just yell at them, he went around and threw their tables to the ground. You see, there is a time and a place for everything. We DO NOT want to restrict your right to protest injustice, just have the good sense to do it in front of a police station or a courthouse, where the injustice was served… NOT a sporting event, in a stadium filled with thousands of people who love their country. NOT in front of veterans who lost an arm or leg defending your freedoms and your rights. It’s about the complete stupidity of the time and place to make a protest. You don’t seem to get it. THEY don’t get it, either… and I blame it on sheer stupidity.

          • Please don’t call me STUPID!!!! That’s very essence of this PROTEST, people are using this as a DIVISIVE ISSUE WHEN IT SHOULD BE A UNITING ISSUE!!! I NOTE NO RESPONSE TO THE DISRESPECTFUL ACTIONS THAT I NOTED!!! AND THEY’RE DONE IN ALL SORTS OF PLACES AND TIMES WHICH COULD BE CONSIDERED INAPPROPRIATE!!! THE PLACE IS THE BEST PLACE TO PROTEST WITH THE AUDIENCE IT PROVIDES!!! WHAT PEOPLE SHOULD BE THINKING ABOUT IS THAT WE ALL DESERVE TO BE TREATED THE SAME!!! YOU DO AGREE DON’T YOU??? A FOOTBALL GAME IS IN NO WAY A TEMPLE(LOL) OKAY, SO STOP THAT MADNESS AND JUST TELL THE PEOPLE WHO ARE BEING WRONGED TO SHUT UP AND BE HAPPY THAT YOU’RE EVEN HERE!!! THAT’S WHAT WE HEAR RIGHT NOW, BECAUSE YOU’VE MADE A BUNCH OF MONEY YOUR BLACK AND BROWNESS PROTECTS YOU!!! LMAO YOU REALLY THINK THAT THOSE PEOPLE WHO HAVE FOUNDATIONS, CHARITIES, SOLDIERS WHO HAVE DIED IN THEY’RE FAMILIES, FAMILY MEMBERS STILL SERVING AND WILL SERVE,WHO HAVE TRAVELED THE WORLD AS REPRESENTATIVES FOR OUR GREAT COUNTRY AREN’T PATRIOTIC!!! YOU THINK ABOUT THAT, I DON’T KNOW IF I WOULD DO IT THE WAY THEY ARE BUT, THAT’S WHAT MAKES THIS COUNTRY THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA THE GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!! OUR CONSTRUCTION AFFORDS US THIS NUMBER ONE RIGHT!!! CHARLOTTESVILLE WAS FAR,FAR,FAR WORSE THAN THIS AND OUR PRESIDENT HAD TO BE PUSHED INTO CONDEMNING THAT FIASCO BUT HE CAN SURE CRITICIZE OTHERS!!! LOOK AT PR, PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING AND HE’S BOTHERING TO MAKE THIS HIS ISSUE!! NOT THE REAL ISSUE MIND YOU WHICH IS PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING MEANING THE PROTEST!!!! NO IT’S JUST TIME FOR THIS GREAT, GREAT COUNTRY OF OURS TO TAKE ON THIS ELEPHANT IN THE ROOM AND SOME STILL DON’T THINK IT MATTERS LET ALONE EXISTS!!! ABD JUST IN CASE YOU CAN’T TELL I’M NOT STUPID AND NEITHER ARE YOU!! MAYBE INCONSIDERATE OF OUR PLIGHT, METHODS OF EXPRESSING THE PAIN! BUT I’M MAD AT THEM TOO BECAUSE THEY SHOULD’VE BEEN KNEELING, SITTING, RUNNING, AND YES STANDING FOR THIS ISSUE WHEN COLIN STARTED IT!! NOW THE PRESIDENT WHO ALWAYS SAYS OUTLANDISH STUFF SAYS SOMETHING ELSE OUTLANDISH AND YOU GET MAD!! EVEN THE HYPOTHETICAL OWNERS GOT MAD!!! LOL LET’S FOCUS ON THE REAL ISSUE, AT LEAST WE’RE TALKING RIGHT?? BUT LET’S TALK ABOUT THE REAL ISSUE OKAY!! LET’S LEAVE THE RELIGIOUS STUFF OUT OF IT BECAUSE IF WE GO THERE GOD MAY COME BACK RIGHT NOW AND CLEAN UP THIS MESS!! GOD HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH OUR FLAG, THAT’S MAN’S DEAL!!!

        • Why do they pick and choose? because it just so happened it might have been a white cop and the guy shot happened to be of another color?? I don’t see them protesting in Chicago where HUNDREDS of blacks are killed every year (maybe a dozen on a bad weekend), by their OWN KIND. Guess THEY don’t matter though because their own kind are doing the killing huh?

          • Hey Brother glad you’re back! There have been plenty of people of ALL COLORS, speaking about the CHICAGO MESS!!! LET ME ASK YOU AND EVERYONE ELSE WHO SAYS THIS SOMETHING!!! DO YOU ALL REALLY THINK THAT WE AS A PEOPLE WANT TO SEE ANYONE JUST KILLED IN THE STREETS??? DO YOU ALL NOT THINK THAT WE DON’T TRY AND MAKE OUR YOUTH UNDERSTAND WHAT THEY’RE DOING IS DEAD DAMN WRONG?? OR DO YOU ALL THINK WE’RE SUCH SAVAGES THAT WE’RE WITHOUT CARE, COMPASSION, LOVE AND EVERY OTHER GOOD TRAIT YOU CAN COME UP WITH???

          • Great! maybe YOU care, but apparently the parents of the kids that belong to the gangs that are doing the killings couldn’t care less.

          • Man you really believe that? So do you believe that the parents of the children who turn to WHITE SUPREMACY, ISIS, RELIGIOUS CULTS CARE ANY LESS THAN MANY OF THOSE PARENTS IN CHICAGO?!?! THINK BROTHER THINK BLOCK OUT ALL THE NOISE CAUSE I CAN TELL YOU REALLY CARE IF INFORMED!!! YOU KNOW WHEN I SERVED I MET WHITES, BLACKS, ASIANS PEOPLE OF ALL RACES WHO DUE TO WHATEVER CIRCUMSTANCES HAD NEVER INTERACTED WITH EACH OTHER!!! GUESS WHAT THE ONES WHO WERE WILLING TO INTERACT FOUND OUT!!??? ALL THAT MESS MY PARENTS TOLD ME, ALL THAT MESS ON TV, ALL THAT JUNK ISN’T REAL!!! THESE PEOPLE ARE JUST LIKE THE ONES I GREW UP WITH (GOOD AND BAD)!!! SEE I GREW UP IN A SMALL TOWN BUT WE ALL WENT TO SCHOOL TOGETHER,PLAYED BALL TOGETHER! OH, WE HAD OUR ISSUES BUT ALL IN ALL WE STUCK TOGETHER! THAT’S WHAT LIFE,LOVE AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS IS ALL ABOUT!!

          • So if the parents of the young kids that join those gangs care so much (as you say), why are they joining gangs in the first place?

          • You asked me the other day why I’m kind of prejudiced and if I had any run ins with blacks. Not so much as an adult but a couple things stick out for me as a kid. When I was about 12 yrs. old back in 1970, my Grandmother passed away and my dad and uncle were doing some painting on the outside of the house to freshen it up to sell. She lived in a mixed neighborhood. My 10 yr. old cousin and I took a walk to some RR tracks nearby and a couple black kids that were older than us came over and tried to get some money from us (we didn’t have any). And then when I was in high school as a freshman and Sophomore I had some older blacks bully me and take lunch money from me a couple times, hard to forget it.

          • Brother I am truly sorry that that happened to you when you were younger but I’m willing to bet that there were some WHITES who did things to you too!!! Man if I felt that way about some of the issues I’ve had with White People as well as Black People, it would consume me!! What about the GOOD Experiences you’ve had with Black People, I know there are some!! No my Brother it’s something deeper than that we’re not born to dislike we’re taught to feel that way!! And I’m not saying it was your parents okay but let it go, meet some of us but remember there are good and bad in everyone!! Just like Stevie Wonder and Paul McCartney said in the song EBONY AND IVORY!!

    • Ignorance takes front seat here. IT ISN’T ABOUT RACE, IT IS ABOUT THERE IGNORANCE not knowing how to RESPECT. That you know when it come down playing foot ball, that you get paid more than enough, our men fighting for our county deserves the money you get more than you throwing a pigskin across the field. and your showing disrespect.

GET YOUR HEADS OF OF YOUR ASS AND IF YOU CAN READ RESEARCH IT. THE BLACKS ARE STILL SELLING THERE PEOPLE INTO SLAVERY, SHUT YOUR FAT LIPS AND USE YOUR BRAIN….

    • I agree with all the comments about the NFL players. I received an email from a friend with the subject line of: NATIONAL FOOLS LEAGUE. From now on that is the way I will speak or talk about them as it is so fitting.

    • After all the outcry over their behavior they will immediately correct their actions – but will it be due to their Patriotism or FEAR of losing millions of fans. Regardless, they must pay a hefty price for their disrespect last weekend with punishment from fans lasting more than just 1 or 2 weeks.

    • I say, let them put their money where they mouth is. Let’s see some big donations to the poor folks who lost so much in the hurricanes. And they are using the wrong method for their protest. It makes no sense to disdain the flag and National Anthem for a sporting event. They are just too lazy to make a poster and go protest on the sidewalk of Congress or their local police dept. They are really dissing the police, right? Anyway, I only watched the second half of the Bear vs Packer game….and I live in Wisconsin have have my Packer flag out.

    • The NFL lost me when Jerry and jimmy fired Tom Landry on live TV. This stunt by the players makes them look even more all muscle and no brain.. Maybe God will forgive them,but I sure as hell will not!

    • EACH and EVERY ONE of YOU CAN STOP THIS DISRESPECTFUL KNEELING ACT by NOT BUYING ANYTHING FROM the ADVERTISERS of the NFL! That’s the ONLY WAY!

      • I agree with you 100%, but you know, there will still be some idiot fans that could care less about what the players are doing and will support them anyway, sad!

      • It is painful to see you miss the issue. We want to call the country’s attention to THE POLICE IS MURDERING TOO MANY UNARMED CITIZENS.

        • Everyone please remember that when the NFL crashed it was because a handful of black players who didn’t have the respect for our flag and for our National Anthem before the game. It was the black players who created this situation that is now going down in American history. I have some gutter words for these black players but I won’t print them because I know that there are many black players who are decent and who respect the flag and National Anthem. I’m quite sure that the majority of black members in the U.S. military cringe at what they see going on.

    • Amen! THOSE millionaire whiners have made their big bucks off the fans – just like Hollywood actors – they forget that we made them rich! Yet, they DO NOT RESPECT THE FANS, THEY DO NOT RESPECT THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO SERVE OUR COUNTRY, THEY DO NOT RESPECT THE USA FLAG, NOR DO THEY RESPECT AMERICA THE COUNTRY AND ITS CITIZENS!! GOODBYE NFL PLAYERS AND NFL LEAGUE – YOU ALL GOT WAY TOO BIG FOR YOUR TIGHT BRITCHES!!COLLEGE FOOTBALL CAN RETURN TO BEING NUMBER 1 WHERE IT BELONGS – NO PRIMA DONAS, NO LONG HAIR, NO WHINING – JUST GOOD, AFFORDABLE FOOTBALL ONCE MORE!!

    • I live in a high end community a few foot ball players moved here. One famous player lived a few houses down the block. This ball player was after my 16 year old blond blue eyes beautiful daughter. This was when OJ Simpson was in court for murdering his beautiful blond wife. My believe football players feel entitled with no respect for any one, or themselves. Money is the problem.

    • You like the president and mattis, decide to ignore the issue or are too stupid to see it. So to help your mental deficiency, here goes the issue one more time. The players like many citizens in general throughout the country and many University students as you could see reported if you knew how to read, kneel to call the attention of the country that there are too many murders by the police of unarmed citizens whom we punish by giving them a number of weeks of paid vacations!!
      Good grief! Aren’t we too rough with the uniformed murderers? The players, like we the people, respect the flag and the National Anthem just as much as you do if not more just that we want to call the attention to an issue that no matter how many times we say it, doesn’t enter the emptiness in your cranium. So what can we do to make you understand the issue?

      • Mr. Mendoza, Your outrage is contrived. “Murders” by members of the thin blue line that stand between law-abiding citizens and criminals is a rarity. On the other hand, righteous shootings done by the police in self-defense do occur at the rate of a few hundred annually, mostly against white perpetrators, not black. The points you are trying to make are similar to those of the media lapdogs holding up their dainty little paws in celebration of the “hands up, don’t shoot” lie – outrage sparked by a false narrative. Truth should cause your little fire of temperament to dwindle and die. Of course for you, and fanatics like Antifa and the Black Lives (don’t) Matter crowd, it never does.

    • If it was up to me I would fire anyone who would not stand up for our flag and national anthem. My brother was killed in World War II at the age of 21. These guys should be put in the army instead of getting millions for playing football.

    • THEY MAKE ME WANT TO VOMIT. THE MEDIA HAS THE GALL TO REFER TO SPORTS FIGURES AS ”HEROES”. GIVE ME A BREAK, HEROES COME HOME UNDER THE FLAG NOT DISRESPECTING IT. I AM A FORMER MARINE AND HONESTLY FEAR FOR OUR COUNTRY. OVERPAID, OVERSEXED AND OVER PAMPERED.AND THEY HAVE THE NERVE TO COMPLAIN.
