The NFL realized they were in trouble when they saw these numbers

With the NFL set to kick off its regular season next week, the league just got some bad news.

Football fans are frustrated by the NFL’s inability to stop the anthem protests.

And when the NFL saw these numbers, they knew they were in trouble.

The blatant disrespect some players continue showing for America is having a tremendous impact on the latest poll numbers.

According to an NBC News/Wall Street Journal Survey, 54% of Americans called the anthem protests “inappropriate.”

The numbers likely would’ve been higher, but the question was framed to portray the protests in the most positive way posible.

“When it comes to professional football players kneeling during the national anthem to protest racial inequality in the United States, do you consider this to be an appropriate way or not an appropriate way to bring attention to these concerns?”

Even with the “positive” spin the fake news media tried to put on the protests, only 43% of Americans thought it was “appropriate” to protest during the national anthem.

Worse yet for the NFL, the number of people who follow the NFL “not closely at all” has grown from 21% in 2014 to 31% in 2018.

With numbers like that, it looks like the NFL is in for another season of falling ratings, continuing the trend from the previous season.

The Washington Times notes:

NFL ratings dropped by about 10 percent in the 2017 regular season after falling by 8 percent from the previous season, a decline attributed to fan outrage over the protests as well as cable cord-cutting and the quality of the games.

After the league-wide protests at the beginning of the 2017 season, many fans said, “To hell with the NFL!” and boycotted throughout the year.

What are your thoughts?

Will you watch the NFL during the 2018 season if national anthem protests continue?

    • Kaeperni k sure made a name for nimself! I wonder if he likes to wallow in ghe same disrespect he has shown the country that hosts him.

      Everyone has a right to their own opinion. Everyone has the right to express their opinion, but they sure need to be aware that there IS A PRICE TO PAY for disrspect.

      Same goes for Nike. Your brand may be good, but not good enough to support your attitude!

    • Absolutely — they went from living in the streets (so to speak) no grace no appreciation for our Great Country and most of all No Respect

    • I totally agree with what Jerry stated. The NFL has lost my respect of all player’s. NOT only with these new rules on tackling opposing quarterbacks that was on the news.

  1. Why don’t they protest fatherless children I think this is the biggest problem I understand these football players have as many as ten children who will grow up in gangs and in trouble with the police.

    • The National Felons league is all about its own egos. They could care less about kids, wives..which they shed for ‘newer models’ frequently, like their cars, or even the league and its owners. Money is their god, crass and callousness their pattern of behavior behind the scenes with complete disregard of the laws of this land. They believe their skill on the field makes them above all common courtesies, laws, civilities, and respect for others. Their sudden wealth prevented them from growing up in the real world and becoming mature adults.
      Kneeling is just another way to exercise their entitled egos, and using the excuse of ‘Americanism’ to disrespect, sound off, and just generally be snotty little brats with no education and small-mindedness. Alas, their self-perceived ‘cuteness’ did not sit well with most Americans. The league seems to want to coddle its brats and will soon feel the financial burdens imposed on it and its owners by their actions. Right to protest? Nope, just a ‘pose’ for this incredibly dense, arrogant behavior.

    • Wow! No kidding!
      They were proud to play for our country; and we were proud of them.
      Something sure has changed. The values are gone, and the respect is gone. No sports.

  2. I am so sick & tired of people being praised for being disrespectful of those who give their all to protect all of our lives. I’m sick of big corporations and organizations that think that they can do whatever they want without consequences. When you choose to honor the honorless, you deserve to pay the price for believing that we are cows to be led and have no thoughts of what is truly right from what is blatantly wrong. You should be ashamed of your assumptions of grandeur over us.

  3. I used to follow NFL almost every Sunday. I no longer watch NFL in any fashion. I watched no game last year not even the Super Bowl and I will watch no game again this year. Due to my age, I may never watch an NFL game again.

    • I was an avid Redskins fan. I watched every game (and many other NFL games). I own lots of Redskins gear. I loved the game.

      I watched only a few Redskins games last year, and no non-Redskins games. Over the course of the year, I weaned myself away from the game.

      This year I will likely watch zero games.

      This is coming from one of their strong fans. It is only a single data point, but it should give them pause.

      The solution is simple: Put increasingly severe sanctions on players who disrespect the flag or NFL rules. Otherwise the fans will put. increasingly severe sanctions on the league.

  4. I had season tickets to one of the NFL teams back in the late 80’s. It was time to renew our passes and I told my friend that I didn’t want to support a bunch of crybabies, drug addicted, over paid pieces of trash anymore. So that was it for me and the NFL way back then. I bet I haven’t watched an NFL game in 20 years. Now that they have proven what I said back then, I wouldn’t watch 10 seconds of NFL garbage. Get rid of the Players Union, drop all players salary to no more than $1,000,000 per year. If they kneel the first time, reduce their pay by 25%, the second time reduce it another 25% and send them packing on the third time. I will always support our military, past, present and future over these scum bags any day. I would support fining the kneelers $50,000 out of their pay each offense and having it donated to the Wounded Warriors Project. BYE BYE NFL FOREVER!!!

    • Same here! I don’t even watch or listen to these Traitor’s anymore! That’s right! Bye! Bye! NFL! Same thing for Basketball too!Bye! Bye!

    • I could not agree more!!!! we will never never ever watch another game. what a total disgrace they are to each and every American vet. if they don’t like living in the best country ever… Then get out!

  5. Overpaid, spoiled, children. Gone are the days of looking up to the “professional” football player. As a kid I thought it was something to strive for, to be like the sports hero – now I want nothing to do with them!

    • I played football for 44 years and have watched the NFL with a passion through the 2016 season. Because of the disrespect the players show for our flag and the gutless behavior of the owners and the commissioner, I have stopped watching and no longer follow the standings.

  6. Love that NIKE got into backing of the Failure to Fire Kneeler and giving him some hero award…the savings will be in the shoes. Those that back the NFL will be the losers. The NFL is now losing daily and still backs the Loser Kneeler.

    • This is absurd! NIKE of all endorsers putting this man on their payroll? I still see kneeling in the preseason. I am not watching football for another year. Have lots of books to read. Owners and a commissioner will absolutely no integrity or balls. They have lost all respect from me.

  7. Will never watch them again, I LOVE THIS COUNTRY, they do not. I watched them as long as I can remember, and I am 52yrs old. I used to look forward to every season as the fall months arrived. I haven’t watched them in the last 21/2 yrs and will never watch them or purchase any nfl related merchandise again. I dont support anti-American associations or groups.

  8. Professional football was the only sporing game that I liked. With that said, THIS WILL BE THE THIRED (3RD) season that i will not have watched one football game and will not watch another game until if and when these highly overpaid spoiled brats stop kneeling during the playing of The National Anthem. Until then, the NFL can go straight to HELL!

  9. As a 25 year veteran. I think it is a slap in the face to all patriotic Americans when They disrespect our flag, country, and veterans. I am a 50 year fan and haven’t watched for 2 years now.

  10. I AND MY TWO SONS ARE ALL RETIRED MILITARY…WE HAVE NOT WATCHED THE NFL PLAY A GAME THE PASS TWO YEARS…WE ARE GRATFUL FOR OUR COUNTRY,AND WHAT IT HAS GIVEN TO ALL OUR CITIZENS IF THEY ONLY WORK FOR IT…WE AND I DO NOT CARE FOR WEALTHY SPORTS FIGURES TO DISRESPECT OUR FLAG,AND NATIONAL ANTHEM..THEY SHOULD SHOW RESPECT FOR THE COUNTRY THAT HAS GIVEN THEM THE OPPORTUNITY TO SUSCEED IN THEIR LIVES..IF THE CONTUNE THE DISRESPECT…DISBAN THE NFL…..THERE WILL BE A NEW PROFOOTBALL LEAGUE TO TAKE THEIR PLACE…BE WARNED.

    • I hope the President FIRES ALL
      NFL PLAYER’S AND, TAKES ALL GAMES OFF THE RADIO, TV, ETC
      THEY ARE PAID TO MUCH MONEY WHEN THERE ARE STRAVING AND HOMELESS, PEOPLE AND, PETS IN THE UNITED STATES.

  11. Why would I waste my time watching a bunch of overpaid America hating trash play a kids game?? Why would I waste my time watching a bunch of OVERPAID self aggrandizing America hating trash cart the rotting corpse of a bitter backbiting self aggrandizing Trump hating POS all over the country even if I’m the one who is stuck paying for it?? I can’t think of a logical reason. At any rate we are just one step closer to MAGA!!! BUILD THE WALL, DEPORT THEM ALL, MAGA, OR ELSE!!!

  12. Damage has been done. Politics have no place in any sport. Personally I wish the NFL could just be dismantled. Let these so called athletes get a real job. Maybe the military is an option, they can see what real men look like!!!!!

    • Clicked in on the game between Dallas and the Texans and saw what I was glad to see. The upper levels was all dark with no customers. If that continues the NFL will be long gone buy the end of the season. I was an avid watcher until Kapernick pulled his crap. Then other stupid players joined in to make it worse they even stopped playing the anthem on TV at the start of the game. There are a lot of players who do not even belong here except for playing the game they are from other countries just like in Basketball. Stopped watching the Spurs for the same reason. Coach went on a rant about Trump sticking his nose in where it wasn’t needed. Lost another watcher. Hope they all go bankrupt.

      • Here is something I read on line.
        It says it all… I have not watched football last season and I do not see myself watching in 2018. Text follows..
        JULY 25, 2018 AT 1:51 AM
        You Can’t Fix Stupid! I guess when your schooling is free, you don’t feel the need to learn anything. Just because they “went to college” doesn’t mean they were educated in anything but football. Just another example of why you can’t fix stupid..

        NEW YORK (World News Bureau) –
        In a recent polling of 585 NFL players, nearly all of them were unsure of exactly what they are protesting. Here’s a sampling of responses to the question: “What are you protesting by kneeling during the National Anthem?”

        “Pretty sure it’s against Nazis – especially the white ones.”
        “We’re protesting America becoming capitalistic instead of equal.”
        “I’m protesting against Trump saying black lives don’t matter.”
        “We’re against global warming and the police..”
        “We’re showing the world that we care about, ah, things such as… such as… ah, freedom from suppression?”
        “Me and my fellow players are protesting the Constitution of Independence because of what it does to people of color.”
        “We are displaying our right to stand up by kneeling for our beliefs.”
        “We are protesting Trump, because he, you know, keeping the black man down.”
        “Myself is kneeling to show that just because I’m American don’t mean I got to act like one.”

        All above comments are from National Football League players with 4 years of an American College “Education.”
        Average player salary $1,900,000…………AND SO IT GOES!

        That’s it !

  13. Too dumb to know which side of their bread is buttered !!!
    N. F. L. = Not For Long !!!!!!!!!!!
    GO COLLEGE fOOTball Played for fun, fame and glory. REAL FOOTBALL!!!!!

      • Yes, High School football is the best. And, you meet the best people there. In the crowd are families who are there to support their kids and their kids friends and their communities. My grandson played high school football and college. All was good, but Damascus, MD football was the best. Damascus is a small town outside of Washington DC. THey won football championships and wrestling championships. Everybody got to know each other. GOing to those games , both home and away were great highlights in my life. Not only the families of the players came, but a huge percentage of the entire town! College games were good too, but not like the closeness of the high school games. I feel very blessed to have been part of that. No one in this house watches any NFL at all and, most likely, never will. Hopefully, a new league will be started and none of those who took a knee will ever be allowed to participate.

  14. I think ANY athlete who benefits from the freedom America provides to achieve the salaries they have for playing a game and chooses to disrespect our flag and anthem should have their citizenship revoked and given a one way ticket to a country they can respect. If they do it in another country it should be an automatic revocation and they should not be allowed back in the United States. That’s why I always believed Bill Clinton should not have been allowed to become President after he protested against America while in England.

    • I agree with you Marlopi completely. I have not watched any NFL games from the start of the protesting. The NFL players are overpaid brats with no respect for our country, flag, and military. SO they do not warrant getting any of my money or attention at all.

  15. I THINK ALL SOLDIERS , POLICE, FIREFIGHTERS, AND NRA MEMBERS ALL STOP WATCHING ANY FOOTBALL GAMES. AND TO MAKE ALL LIVES MATTER ALL VOTE FOR ALL REPUBLICANS.. AND GET ALL THE JACK ASSES OUT OF OFFICE. NEXT TIME I TAKE MY GRANDCHILDREN TO THE ZOO AND THE CHILDREN ASK WHY ARE SOME OF THE ANIMALS ACTING UP ? I WILL TELL THEM DON,T WORRY THEY ARE JUST FOOTBALL PLAYERS!

  16. To those whom want to play the race card and defend those idiots. Commiecrats want to cla the high ground. Let’s talk about West Virginia senator Robert Byrd. Once the majority leader. Used the”N” word on tv 10 or so years ago. A democrat all his life. Was a kkk leader. Rapist Bill Clinton made excuses for that while giving his euleog. Chew on that Diane , RicB and the rest of you assholes that wants to point fingers. Well I have a finger for you. Center of hand and pointed straight up.

    • DID NOT WATCH THEM LAST YEAR AND WILL NOT WATCH THEM THIS YEAR. NOBODY I KNOW IS GOING TO WATCH THEM. I CAN’T WAIT TILL THEIR HIGH DOLLAR SALARIES START TO DROP. POLITICS SHOULD NOT BE PROJECTED INTO SPORTS. I’LL SUPPORT VETERANS OVER THESE IDIOTS ANY DAY!!!!!!!

  17. I haven’t watched a game since the kneeling started and will not watch a game until the NFL owners discipline those kneeling. A second occurence of kneeling should result in dismissal from the team and NFL.

    • I agree completely Michael Navarre the NFL players needs fired completely, and sent to another country to live our the rest of their life, if no respect for our country, flag and all not warranted to be in our country. Let them go to another country where they can get by with the protesting but do not permit them back into our country for their lifetime.

    • I have no support for these puppies. spent 6 years in national guard in Indiana and was in Ft Knox in 63 when President was shot. What a bunch of overpaid kids that look like adults. Sad

  18. I would not watch an NFL game if they were to pay me what an average player made foe playing in that game. Let them go to South Africa, and try and make the money that they make. Then they would be flying back to stand up for the flag that represents the Greatest Country on the planet.

    • I have not watched since Colin took a knee and good old Roger let him get away with it and I will not watchever again. Even if these little big mouths realize they are hurting their own paychecks I am done with the NFL. I ALSO QUIT WATCHING COLLEGE FOOTBALL because they will eventually go pro. I don’t see them giving any of their time or money to help with the problem.

    • The o my way to stop the protests is to stop showing them. Why can’t the networks show the players who are doing the traditional, respectful thing instead of the few who do not? It’s not hard networks! How about you do the right thing?

  19. NFL, Why do you let the “Kneelers” access the stadium. No protesting or kneelers should be “Allowed” in the Stadium!
    Lifetime Ban! No Contract!
    Kneelers…Go get a job at a carwash as it requires no brains!

  20. The no fan league has been shut off in my house – and will NEVER be turned back on! Hockey is a much better sport and they are not anti-Americans, even though many of them come from other countries. Maybe when enough of us turn them off, they lose their sponsors, and the league shuts down, they will see what it is like to really work for a paycheck!

  21. nope, i wouldn’t waste my time watching a bunch of Marxist black communist thugs piss on our flag and nation, all of them should have there contracts terminated and thrown off the premises. as for the owners they should be forced to sell there teams to business people who can run it as a business and not a social justice warrior Marxist communist mixed bag of tricks, and the commisioner must be fired with the shoe left in his fat rear end while exiting.

  22. Where is Virginia Conner and Diane? I liked reading their ignorance and watching them get trashed for their Unpatriotic, immoral, asinine comments!!! Lol

    • I guess we will have to stick to your ignorance, Kennie. Does it make you feel superior to trash others who don’t drink the Fox/limbaugh Kool Aid

      • You are the thoughtful one???? That’s the biggest joke of the day. If you are so thoughtful you’d know how bizarre your name is.

  23. I have been a major football fan since I was a child. In fact it WAS the only sport I watched. Now, in the past 2 years I haven’t watched a single game and I’ve already written of this year just because of preseason kneelers. By – By football. (And all of it’s sponsors.)

      • I have seen such sad black faces while I was at Wal-mart this past weekend. They look at me ( I’m white )like ah in discust, and I was working. Are they working. Work is what gives you the opportunity to have the things you want and need in life. If you don’t work or don’t want to work that is your problem. Don’t cry on our shoulders if you don’t have what the white people have. Go to work, do what you can to earn a good leaving. Stop crying, and for peat sake put a smile on your face, you look terrible without it.

        • What’s more important NFL football or protecting our country by praising the people that protect us for singing , standing and saluting the national anthem of the UNITED STATES of AMERICA

  24. Is the NFL (National Felony League) still around. I am or was a big Bears fan but I haven’t watched a single down in 2 years & don’t plan on doing so this year. I will spend that time that I use to give to the rich millionaire cry baby’s club, with my son. He means more to me than the Bears or NFL do anyway. I read an earlier post where a father spends the time that he use to give to watching football, to instead spend that time with his daughter going to a National Park. I praise him for being a good father. Someone also said that the real heroes are the military personal. I also agree with that, being a 15 year veteran of my country. But don’t forget the police, fire personal & the EMTs. They also serve our country in a different uniform. But a father who spends valuable time with his son or daughter or both, is in my book the real heroes of this country. At least I am to my son. He has never looked at any of those football jerks as any kind of hero & that means a lot to me. Thanks to all of you who have served. I salute you & thank you for helping me keep my son free & safe. Good bless you all.

  25. I haven’t watched these over paid monkeys in years and don’t intend to EVER watch any of them EVER again. SCREW the NFL and ALL these scum sucking bastards. I HOPE THIS IS THE LAST YEAR THERE IS AN NFL.

    • I will NOT return to watching the nfl even IF they remain in the locker rooms during tht National Anthem. Players, coaches, owners, and league have already shown their true colors.

    • I can’t tell you how much I agree with your post. I
      have watched football games since the mid-50s,
      but I’ve watched my last NFL game. Who do the
      players think they are? Football is just an entertaining
      game played for America’s rest and relaxation. I get too much sociopolitical crap from the media, already. I don’t want
      more of it when I’m trying to decompress.
      There are many avenues (outside the actual game)
      available to redress terrible injusticesthe. In the ‘60s,
      we registered our protests in the media, as well as at
      rallies. You should consider doing the same.
      I PAID to see a football game, not to be forced to listen
      to a bunch of rich, egotistical overpaid jerks. I hope
      that this turns out to be the LAST NFL season.
      College football is, and has always been, an acceptable
      alternative to professional football. See ya!!

  26. Apparently the owners are not as smart as they would like us to believe, they reelected the same commissioner that let “Taking the knee” get out of hand and as far as I’m concerned he has done nothing to earn his very high paycheck! As long as they keep taking the knee they cannot expect to have all the seats full and I for one will never ever watch another NFL event!

      • I had a black lady call me out for supporting my ban on the NFL. It is sad when a educated lady can think I am a racists for speaking how I feel about the National Anthem. We are all Americans and should understand how to support our flag and our country. Count me out NFL. I forwarded a email about players that have done things like DUL, beating there spouse and / or girlfriend, fighting, and etc. I look at them as football players not black or white.

        • This lady your talking about is OBVIOUSLY racist! Like you should not have an opinion how these IDIOTS are and have been disrespecting this country? People like that I do not waste my time on!!!

    • THEY ARE BOTH THE SAME. WING NUTS ! THIS 1968 VIETNAM VET AND RETIRED FIREFIGHTER WITH C.O.P.D. AND P.T.S.D. WILL NEVER WATCH ANOTHER KNEELING OR BLACK PANTHER FIST RAISED FOOTBALL GAME AGAIN. I HAVE A PHOTO OF 1960 CHAMPION EAGLES. THEY WERE MEN. JIM BROWN HE IS A MAN, THE LIST GOES ON AND ON . BUT NOT IN THE LAST 10 YEARS OR MORE.THIS COMMISSIONER HAS NO BALLS TO STAND UP HIMSELF.SO I SAY ALL TRUE PEOPLE WHO STAND FOR OUR FLAG AND PLACE OUR HANDS OVER OUR HEARTS IT IS FOR ALL THOSE WHO FOUGHT OR DIED FOR WHAT WE HAVE TODAY. ASK ANY SO CALLED FOOTBALL PLAYER HOW MANY MIA,S WE HAVE RIGHT NOW. THE ANSWER IS OVER 90,000. THOSE MOTHERS AND FATHERS WOULD GET SICK WATCHING A FOOTBALL PLAYERS REACTION TO OUR FLAG AND NATIONAL ANTHEM . FOOTBALL PLAYERS ARE MOSTLY ALL UNGRATEFUL BASTARDS.JOIN THE SERVICE AND FIND OUT WHET IT IS ALL ABOUT. MY HOME IS GOING THROUGH 3 RD. YEAR OF NO FOOTBALL IN MY HOME. I DON,T PAY MY CABLE BILL TO WATCH PROTESTERS. BYE

      • I was watching the Houston-Rice game yesterday. It disgusted me to see a U Houston player switch the ball to his LEFT hand and raise his Right hand while running for a touchdown. He then raised his right hand high overhead with a clenched fist.You might say that was just “youthful exuberance”. I never saw another player, white or black – or even that same player – repeat the “sign of black power” in that game. I attended “Cougar High” one semester, before transferring to another college closer to home, and I have always been a UH fan. Not so much anymore after that one player’s raised fist.

        • I agree there is other ways to protest something you don’t agree with.disrespect for our flag is not the way to go about it.if you don’t respect the flag or country move to another one and see if they pay you that much money and put up with that noise

    • They supposedly are protesting police brutality and black poverty. A couple of things I do NOT see them doing is condemning black-on-black crime a personal commitment (like giving ANY percentage of their multi-million contract money to help the poor. Therefore, other than insulting America and patriotic citizens, their protests are just empty swags.

  27. It’s already easy for me not to watch NFL football anymore, because I’m just not in any way a fan now. Shut the league down and we’ll all be the better for it.

  28. Has anyone saw a single one of these morons protesting do so during off season? I have not! This tells me one thing… they dont have a cause, they dont give a crap about what goes on in this world!! Funny how as soon as football season comes around and cameras start rolling they all come out for their interviews on TV and headlines! It’s all about “THEM”!!!!!

  29. I will watch an All American… The Packers whenever they are on in Virginia. The rest can protest all they want and not know what they are protesting!!!!

  30. The owners are all billionaires. To stop his crap all they have to do is close down the league. When these “patriotic players” no longer get a paycheck I would bet that they would agree to stand if the league reopens.

  31. The only person who understands what our American flag stands for , whether you like him or hate him is Jerry Jones who makes everyone stand during the Anthem or find somewhere to play. I have started watching college ball since last year and no longer watch the NFL. I refuse to watch or spend money on a pro game , all there is are a bunch of disrespectful kids making millions. I am a combat veteran and will tell everyone that the true heroes are our service members that made the ultimate sacrifice, not football players!!!

    • Well said James, when they are taking the knee they just look stupid! As you say I will never ever watch another NFL event! ‘Nam 69/70!

    • Thank you James for your service, I honor you but never can or ever will these disrespectful Prima Donnas who have done nothing to deserve the air they breath in this our great country. They should move to Mexico or Canada and work for the mafia or the queen and see how much respect they get from them.

  32. THE BLACK LIVES MATTERS AND THE NFL ARE A BUNCH OF BLACK DUMB ASS SOBS THAT ARE MAKING IT WORST LIVING IN AMERICA, WE DO NOT HAVE TIME FOR THIS BULLSHIT, THAT BLACKS ARE GETTING A RAW DEAL BECAUSE OF WHITE AMERICANS. I HAVE HEARD THIS SHIT FOR SO LONG IT MAKES ME SICK, TO HEAR ALL THESE CRYING BASTARDS, AND THAT WE WHITE PEOPLE ARE RACIST BUT THE BLACKS ARE MORE RACIST BECAUSE THEY BLAME ALL THEIR TROUBLES ARE BECAUSE OF WHITE PEOPLE. WELL THE BLACKS CAN KISS MY WHITE ASS RIGHT WHERE IT IS BROWN. THE NFL AND THE BLACK LIVES MATTERS CAN GO TO HELL. go ahead and post my shit

  33. THE BLACK LIVES MATTERS AND THE NFL ARE A BUNCH OF BLACK DUMB ASS SOBS THAT ARE MAKING IT WORST LIVING IN AMERICA, WE DO NOT HAVE TIME FOR THIS BULLSHIT, THAT BLACKS ARE GETTING A RAW DEAL BECAUSE OF WHITE AMERICANS. I HAVE HEARD THIS SHIT FOR SO LONG IT MAKES ME SICK, TO HEAR ALL THESE CRYING BASTARDS, AND THAT WE WHITE PEOPLE ARE RACIST BUT THE BLACKS ARE MORE RACIST BECAUSE THEY BLAME ALL THEIR TROUBLES ARE BECAUSE OF WHITE PEOPLE. WELL THE BLACKS CAN KISS MY WHITE ASS RIGHT WHERE IT IS BROWN. THE NFL AND THE BLACK LIVES MATTERS CAN GO TO HELL.

    • James they want to hold America hostage because of the past. White people (republicans) changed things. They should be grateful for the party.

  34. FOUND ANOTHER PAST TIME ,HIKING WITH GRANDDAUGHTER AT STATE PARKS! WHO NEEDS PEOPLE DEGRADING OUR COUNTRY THAT MAKES SO MANY MILLIONS HERE . SHAMEFUL HOW BIG CRYBABIES POUT AND CRY AND BLAME OUR COUNTRY AND FLAG ,IT IS A LOT MORE FUN AND REWARDING TO SPEND THE DAY WITH 4 GIRLS THAT STAND FOR OUR ANTHEM AND LOVE THE OUTDOORS ,SO EVERY TIME A GAME IS ON WE ARE LOADING UP AND HEADING TO A STATE PARK FOR A HIKE AND PICNIC

  35. No, they are just rich entertainers who overplayed their weak hands. They have the right to protest and we have the right not to watch in response.

  36. I haven’t watched a football game in two years. I will get together with my ex-wife before I watch another. She’s dead. And Colin Kaepernick, who started it all, is such a bad player he can’t get hired as a backup. I will stop now because this public forum is not the place for foul language.

  37. The NFL Commissioner,owners,and players have failed to realize that ‘pro’ football is not a necessary commodity. What a way to run a business!

  38. To Whoever; I type 80 WPM, how does that translate to posting too fast ????

    I don’t get it ? Just a way to Prevent Opinions ?

  39. Now that a majority of the participants represent the mentality and actions prevalent on the lower, left hand side of the Bell Curve, I no longer care to watch. It may be poetic justice for both sides, but in a few years this same crowd will be filing CTE lawsuits, expecting physical, mental and financial remedies for injuries they voluntarily exposed themselves to in the course of their choosen profession. Good luck and Good Night.

    • I agree ,their is a time and a place to protest and a football game is not one of them ,these protesters should thank their lucky stars they even the chance to play football and get paid for it

  40. The NFL can go to hell as long as they disrespect the National Anthem and our flag. I am not and will not support them in anyway or fashion. I am a diehard Denver fan and they are not kneeing but the rest of the NFL ruins that support.

    • THOSE MUSCLEHEADS WILL NOT LEARN UNTIL THEIR CONTRACTS ARE AFFECTED BY THE IGNORANCE OF THEIR ACTIONS! THEY DECIDED TO FOLLOW THE KNEE-BENDING CRAP OF THE “OVER-THE-HILL” COPPERNECK! HE SURE SUCKERED A LOT OF DUMMIES TO “FOLLOW MY LEAD” AND HE LED THEM LIKE THE PIED PIPER, AND THEY FOLLOWED LIKE THE PLAGUE OF VERMIN IN THE FAIRY TALE!!! I SINCERELY HOPE THEY ARE HAPPY, CUZ THEY COULDN’T BE PROUD OF THEIR KNEE-BENDING!!! THAT IS THE SIGN OF WEAKNESS,,,,,,FOLLOWING A LOSER INSTEAD OF RETAINING YOUR DIGNITY AND HONORING YOUR STATUS AS A “ROLE MODEL”!!!! THE MOTTO “GOD BLESS AMERICA” STILL STANDS, FOR ANYONE AND EVERY ONE STRONG ENOUGH AND PROUD ENOUGH TO LIVE IT!!!

  41. I do not watch any football, basketball, soccer, baseball, tennis or any sport other than Nascar and NHRA. And guess what…..They even have a prayer during the openings. Who would have thought the deplorables would even do such a thing. WOW. More excitement and fun to watch also.

  42. I have never seen a atheists in a fox hole but I see a lot of the on a football field you don’t believe in God when you think you are one but when your on your deathbed your not praying to yourself time for the trolls to go away.

  43. Thanks for the data on the NFL, I was wondering how they were doing this year. Now that you have shown a proper respect for data, let me give you some more from a new national poll (8-31-18): this national poll found 49% of Americans back Trump’s impeachment — more than the 46% of Americans who are opposed. It also found Trump’s popularity plummeting, with 36% approving of the job he’s doing compared with the 60% who disapprove. Even worse, a majority of Americans STRONGLY disapprove of Trump’s job performance. The poll also shows that Trump’s attempts to smear special counsel Robert Mueller are failing, as 63% support Mueller’s investigation, with 52% strongly supporting it. Even more, Trump’s Mueller smear campaign is backfiring, as 53% of Americans say Trump has tried to obstruct justice by meddling in Mueller’s investigation.

      • Like Trump, you are prone to lies and exaggerations. I said, Will, this was a nation wide poll It sponsored/funded by ABC News – – – you all, by in large, support the data saying what you WANT to hear about the NFL, well the same systematic poll was done on politics and Trump, but you don’t like the results and so you bleat: “lame, fake news!”

        • RicB I have never in my life been associated with the kkk. That’s the commiecrats. Ever hear of West Virginia democratic senator Robert Byrd? Big time kkk leader. He even used the “N” word on tv about 10 or more years ago. Hell the rat party had him as majority leader in the 1980’s. All American political assasanations were committed by leftists To my knowledge I’ve never met anyone associated with the clan. Can your commiecrat heros like chuckie and his crowd say the same. I only say what you think , but don’t have the balls. Don’t you want to talk about senator Robert sheets?

    • THIS HAS NOT BEEN SENT ALREADY, GUESS WE CAN TELL WHICH SIDE OF THE FENCE THIS SITE IS ON .OH, and don`t forget to mention, that this poll was taken at D N C head quarters . You people are lame .

    • Polls can be one sided. Trust none is my opinion. I just wish every Trump basher would refuse the jobs, economy, and tax cuts he has started. Please tell me just exactly how you are not getting a President who puts this country first. Why
      some former presidents got so rich being in office. How does this happen?

    • Hahaha… so we will see. More FAKE polls!! Because of people like you not only will Republicans keep house majority but will take additional seats and TRUMP will not only NOT be impeached but will win by a landslide for re-election!!! Bet you still will stick with your FAKE NEWS AND POLLS EVEN AFTER ALL THAT. Can not fix stupid!!!

      • P.S. How many IGNORANT Liberal Comments made here verses Conservative PRESIDENT TRUMP LOVING comments??? This is the same in any discussion I have read over last 2 years!! The same way it was and will be at the polls in November and in 2020!!! Thank GOD there are still more Sane, Conservative, Moral, Patriotic, American Loving, Flag Loving, Country Loving, Hardworking, Tax paying Citizens than there are Liberal, Communists, Solialist, UNAMERICAN, Unpatriotic, Country Hating, Flag Hating, Losers!!!!

    • Your entitled to your opinion, but you also need to get your head examined and have all those horse puckeys removed from your brain. You don’t like our president, move to Mexico. No one will stop you.

    • Roger the polls are taken in deep blue areas where communism thrives. Total bullshit. Just like odumba’s birth certificate. Suck it up and be glad we have a REAL
      President. I thought we were discussing them darkies disrespecting our flag. Trump is not going to get impeached.

    • I’m glad you gave the poll results to we the people who saw the poll results before the 2016 election. See how far that got you, Mr. Poll Expert!!!!

      • I have not watched the NFL for the last two years & I will not watch it in the coming year. Goddel is a wuss & is incapable of leading.

    • No! These players aren’t the wright kind of people to play a national sport. They are not in anyway Americans. PERIOD !! They don’t LOVE GOD, COUNTRY, OR FAMILY. They have NO RESPECT , PERIOD !!!!

    • I’m with you Jaime. I will watch College football any day over Pro. I have said and done that for years. It’s more exciting and I think that they play harder and give the fans a better game show. If College ever starts kneeling then I will be done with them too. I saw on the news today that they just signed another player for 150 MILLION dollars over the next 6 years. It won’t be any of MY money that supports THAT.!!!!!

  44. NO NFL, NBA, WNBA and NO ESPN! I haven’t forgot what about what started this disrespect for our flag. Kaepernick said it was because white policemen were killing blacks. Then THE REV. SHARPTON got on TV and called for blacks to kill 10,000 white policemen. Several white policeman have died wearing the uniforms and during their jobs. NO one ,even Kaepernick, cares about the week-end killings in Chicago, IL of blacks on blacks! I hate when any life has been lost to violence. I really hate people who use race as a basis to kill anyone, whatever their skin color. But, what I hate most are people that hate our great USA and disrespect our country and flag and I don’t care what color their skin happens to be because that’s not my beef with Kaepernick and his hate. That hate is his to carry and only his. I will not support anyone or anything that disrespects MY country and MY flag.

      • I kept watching MY team, because none of the Carolina Panthers participated in this “protest”. Coach Rivera wouldn’t put up with it. These guys know they are fortunate to be where they are – and they hold one another to high standards.

        We are blessed to be here. If you work hard, you can have a good life. Education is available – and we can all rise by improving our minds. Having a positive attitude and respect for our laws is all it takes. Don’t lie, cheat others, or take “short cuts” to achieve your goals.

        Thank you, Carolina Panthers, for being a team where good sportsmanship is VALUED and serving our community is an honor and part of sharing the blessings in our lives.

    • Will not be watching or buying from the sponsors. When Colon wore pig socks and others agreed with him that was it for me. I don’t miss it at all. Best day of year was yesterday watching COLLEGE football all day! Hope the NFL goes under.

    • I feel the same way and do not waste money or time with these so called sports venues. My money can go to charities where people truly need and appreciate assistance.

  45. You “stand” by taking a knee, for a completely bogus cause because other stupid people did it and you want to be as stupid as they are?

    AND you actually have enough intelligence to be PLAY foolball??

    FACT A: There is NO “oppression” at the federal level.

    FACT B: There is no “oppression” at the State level.

    FACT C: 100% of any “oppression” is done at the LOCAL LEVELS.

    FACT D: Not all ‘local levels’ have “oppression” issues.

    FACT E: ALL of the “oppression” local levels ARE ELECTED BY THE PEOPLE THAT ARE BEING OPPRESSED!

    FACT F: WHEN STUPID PEOPLE STOP ELECTING THE PEOPLE THAT OPPRESS THE, the ‘oppression’ WILL END!

    FACT G: NOBODY that does not live in those areas are allowed to vote in those elections

    SO STOP TRYING TO BLAME AMERICANS AND THE NATION for the RANK STUPIDITY OF A FEW MORONS!

    .

  46. I used to LOVE watching the NFL. Then along comes that idiot CK. Then the rest. I stopped watching. And I will not watch anymore. I’ve had it.

  47. If the ONLY thing on T.V. was football, I would either go for a walk or maybe read a book, pick my nose or any other thing I could dream up, just as long as it did not involve watching a bunch of overpaid, whiney children playing a game while showing disrespect for our country’s flag.. If those players who think this is OK in America would try that disrespect towards any other country’s flag, they would most likely be imprisoned.

    • No football at our house for two years and never again.I would like to see them try and get a state funded stadium again. They need to go back and do what they do best. Eat fried chicken and watermelon.

      • I’m with you JHW. I used to rant and rave over having to PAY for a new stadium that I will never set foot in. Never was much of a pro football fan. I like college. More action and better playing in my opinion. I’m hoping the jerks do fail and fall. I hated paying for that multi-million dollar stadium they just built, and it’s already having problems. Cripes. Maybe we won’t have to see our taxes go for any more stadiums, and it can be used for the good of the state instead.

  48. I’m a Marine combat veteran and served in Viet Nam. I don’t like CK, but I don’t feel at all disrespected when he or any of them take a knee. We’re supposedly a free nation! Maybe the National Anthem should not be played at the beginning of every major sporting event – It bothers me more when out idiot president gets involved in this protest. Doesn’t he have more important things to do

    • John you are a disgrace to the corps. My dad was a marine and he taught us to respect our president and flag. Oh I forgot. Lee Harvey Oswald was a marine. I guess it means nothing to some people.

      • You say your Dad served, so obviously you did NOT. Who do you think you are lambasting a person who served in the marines? John served, he more than earned the right to his freedom of speech, so why don’t you just Shut the F up?

        • Go lick Diane’s ass RicB. No I didn’t serve. Had fallen arches in my feet. I tried. Did you? You are probably a military hating asshole. So YOU shut the f–k up dickhead.

        • Dic B..your left wing confusion is all over the board, why don’t you Troll out, you are nothing but breaking wind. I doubt you could fill a waitress job, let alone the military service to this country where we fight for the Flag and what it stands for.. get a job.

    • So marine, you believe to be protesting the national anthem is ok, but when my great president says something about the disrespect by the morons, you say he sound be doing something else. You want DJT to be silent yet the pcs of 💩 get to say and do what they want. LOSER

    • So it is not about putting down law enforcement, or disrespecting our veterans and our flag, it’s about, “I hate Trump”. President Trump has as much right to express his opinion on something as you do.

      • Breaker 19, thats a big 10-4 from this vet, your 10-20 is on solid US ground. The Haters, hate the progress and prosperity that this President brings to the country vs the Eight Years by the moron that ruled destruction of this country.

    • I also served in the Marines. Back then, every unit dismissal was responded to with a resounding “God! Country! Corps! Hoorah!” This was to show where & in what order our allegiance was to given. In today’s political correctness, I doubt that this is even still expressed. You could kneel to God, but you ALWAYS stood for the flag. (You know, that beautiful piece of red, white, & blue cloth that represents our Country!)Russia always said that the way to defeat the USA was from within. I believe that the NFL (& liberalism in all it’s misguided goals) are doing the job that Russia couldn’t do directly.

  49. NFL now stands for NO FANS LEFT. We stopped watching the games as soon as our Flag and National Anthem became the subject of Colin Kaepernick’s attempt to gain popularity back after he became a mediocre to really bad quarterback. I guess he is dumb enough to believe that the majority of Americans would stand behind him as he disrespected America and what we represent. He began his disrespect of America and what we stand for, supposedly because blacks are frequently arrested for criminal behavior, by wearing socks at the games that had pigs dressed as police officers on the socks. He is mixed race, raised by wealthy white parents and never had to live in poverty a day in his life. Why didn’t he choose to set up a program where he could work with young people that are likely to be pushed into the criminal activities surrounding the places they live in? The fact that Kaepernick did not choose this option proves that his antics were just about bringing attention to himself. Now that he is gone, the other players think they need to continue his method of protest which is why he is gone. What is the NFL made up of? Are they all just a bunch or DUMB & DUMBER numbskulls? If so then Remember This. Don’t let the door hit cha where the Good Lord split cha as you walk out the door of fame and glory.

  50. I am sick & tired of rich spoiled brats WHO “KNOW ABSOLUTELY NOTHING” LECTURING THE REST OF OUR 320 MILLION PATRIOTS WHAT $ HOW TO THINK” The NFL/GOODELL are allowing the “INMATES” to dictate to the point that the “Tail is wagging the dog. They will not play in my house!! A POX on them!!!!

  51. I guess I am being sensored? The post I made is not nearly as bad as lot here and even broke it up into two post because I thought it may have been too long? What gives?

  52. I quit watch any football games when Kapernic took a knee when the national anthem was played and the flag was flying,,, Too many of our men and women over the years bled and died to uphold the American Flag… and that scum has the nerve to kneel.. He is a loser and always will be,, No football for me and a lot of my friends feel the same. One neighbor was a Brown’s fan with season tickets,,, no more.He refused to go or even watch football on TV

    • No more foot ball for me. My country my flag and all thoese who died for our freedom and all thoese wounded worriers come first. President Trump was totally correct what he said about thoese who protested.

    • Don’t watch them anymore. They were put on pedestals because they can play a game. That doesn’t impress me. Soldiers 👮🏼Impress me. Why don’t they protest in the off season. Why don’t they protest about Chicago blacks being killed by blacks. Why don’t they protest about Americans going hungry. They’re b💩

  53. No! But the arrogant players will not give it up.
    Not showing the national anthem which is ESPN’s idea won’t work either. It will just make ESPN fans leave them too.Just watch their ratings if they follow through and see…….I
    I feel for the owners but they all need to just grow a set and enforce rules they cannot sit or kneel or show disrespect to the country or soldiers or flag or face being fired or suspended……they want to sit…..then let em sit out forever on the bench or out of the stadium

  54. nfl, not worth capitalizing, Notorious Fu-king Losers. If you are able to stand and refuse to then head east as isis needs some terrorists so go join them.
    And by the way, I don’t give a Flying Fu-k what color you are.
    Kneelers are a disgrace to this great country.

    • Thank You, very well said, captures it all.
      And to reiterate, head east you scumbags, wanna play with a ball on a green field, see how much you would make in Europe. Would have a hard time supporting yourself, let alone your asinine “posse”.
      Or be a Real Man, get yourselves a Real uniform, grab a gun and Fight for this Great Country that has given you the opportunity of a Lifetime. And still, like all democRATS, you are not happy!!! Shame on every one of you LOSERS!!!
      nfl goes away, y’all be broke within 5 years!
      Then we have to pay for your welfare, damn, WE can’t catch a break!!!

  55. College Football is better better games better athletes I won’t even try to watch
    Those ingrates let them go to Venezuela and play.They disrespect those who have
    served have any of them ever served? Bet not. How dare they do that.
    And those who put up their hand are (Racists) as well.
    My childhood friend
    enlisted in the ARMY went to NAM and came home in a flag draped coffin.
    Left a wife and child as well. So don’t come near me or I’ll do something
    both of us will regret they aren’t good enough to lick the Boots of those who served have they even as much as gone to the Hoods and talked about any of that
    stuff? Bet they’d not get out of there without getting roughed up!
    And what about showing respect for police and firemen as well.Those lazy good for nothings disgust me so no more NFL ever for me I spit in their faces virtually
    and make me want to vomit in their faces which would be too good for those
    haughty proud leering do nothings.

  56. As a veteran, I no longer watch the NFL. I’ve not even watched one single pre-season game, DID NOT RENEW my NFL ticket, and will NOT watch a single game this season, not even the super bowl. If they can’t stand up for my national anthem and my flag, they can keep their stupid game. I’ll watch college ball.

    • Right on Jose, I stopped watching the NFL last year and I really didn’t miss it. I am not sure i will ever watch it again, even if the protests stop. I am still trying to decide whether to burn my expensive Seahawk jersey or put it on eBay so some fool still watching the Seahawks can pay me for it.

  57. I pray that the NFL goes belly up and all these kneeling fools can go get a real job with less pay. Maybe then these bastards will finally figure out that they were some of the most blessed people on our planet. I was once a big fan of the NFL but now I am just a fan who is lost forever due to these Anti-American/ American hating fools who don’t deserve the blessings bestowed upon them. I pray that all the NFL cry babies go broke. Scripture says, “ Whatsoever a man sowth, so shall he reapth”. According to the Bible, the NFL is reaping the seeds it sowed. Thank you Jesus! Go MAGA!

  58. The only way I believe we’ll EVER see the NFL change from a partial “political” gathering to “pure sporting event” is when the financial loss of attendance and related income to the NFL EQUATES to the money to be saved by either buying out or, better yet, trading these current “kneelers” so that new blood under an amended contract (kneeling = firing) can be effected. I think the main problem with trying to coerce, penalize or threaten these “kneeling” NFL players is that the requirement of having to stand is not presently addressed or required in the NFL contract — which leaves the matter of standing open to refusal, argument or negotiation.

    • I could picture it now , goodel calls for a meeting with owners and players and says guys we are going under because of all this , guarenteed in 10 seconds all their so called principles go out the window !!!

    • NFL gone for good all espn channels are blocked it pissed off my son inlaw because he couldn’t watch sports.but thats life had protesters in all sports for me it only takes one. I’m done with them all. And my yard looks really nice with the extra time i have.

  59. The players have no idea what flag/anthem mean to servicemen and women. I am a 24 year Marine Corps Vietnam veteran and I would die for our flag/country. If our country is so bad why are so many people trying to get in? We may not be perfect but we are still the greatest country in the world. Why aren’t black leaders/politicians/athletes trying to do something about the daily murders in Chicago which continue to go on but nothing is being done??? Is it because that would not be a popular thing to do??? The athletes could have more of an impact on that if take that up as an issue instead!!! I love to watch pro football; however, I will not watch another game until the kneeling ends.

    • You are correct & thank you for your service. My father was
      Army Air Corp B 17.

      Part of their salary should go to their communities, work in their communities to educate & mentors.

  60. Used to be an avid fan. No more. Had enough of this. These ahole need to play football not protest during the game. Will not watch any game until this stops.

  61. AS an ex college football player and veteran, I no longer watch the NFL. There are better ways to spend a Sunday afternoon or weekday evening.

    These spoiled “elite’ players can get a quick start on working for a real living and find out how the rest of us live and succeed.

    • As long as these players make millions, have no financial penalties for kneeling and suspension s(like for a season without pay) I will not watch another game or buy anything sports related. So you live with the numbers dropping until you act accordingly. To bad so sad for you. Never will I watch any sports event that allows this disrespect and shame on you all. This isn’t the platform to protest ever.

    • NO FOOTBALL IN THIS HOUSE . AND IF THEY THINK PLAYING THE NATIONAL ANTHEM BEFORE THE TEAM COMES OUT, AND THEY STAY IN THE LOCKER ROOM….. NOT GOING TO HELP !!! WILL PROBABLY MAKE MATTERS WORSE. SORRY NFL. U ARE NOT ALLOWED IN THIS HOUSE…

  62. This isn’t about blacks protesting the National Anthem and everyone knows it, no matter how the mentally ill, homosexual democrats try to hide the truth we all know blacks hate the whites, and this is how they are showing it. The best hope is, this will be taken into the streets, where the blacks will get their “What-for”, i.e., their black asses kicked across this country. They’ve earned it, they deserve it, and the best we can hope for is will get it by us whites.

    • By the way, I turned off fuseball 2 years ago when this crap started. Frankly, I think Congress needs to appropriate enough funds to ship all the Blacks, i.e., black African/Americans back to Africa where they belong. Of course since African’s hate American blacks most of them would be killed the day they stepped foot on African soil and they’d be planted 6-ft under ground the same day they arrived. We must always hope for the best and pass the ammo – right?

    • Obviously there are some whites who hate blacks and you must. Be the their leader. I would hope you are in the minority. I remember reading some people in the South wanted to have a civil war because they hated blscjs and they got their butts kicked. My forefathers were the ones defeated

    • You know you just made yourself sound mentally ill, right? Step away from the emotional drama and speak sense. I am a conservative and do find the kneeling offensive. But I will not get emotional and say nutty things like all democrats are homosexual. Homosexuality is not a mental illness. All blacks do not hate whites. All whites do not hate blacks. In every culture you will find a potion of the people do not like those who are different from them but you can not say the entire culture feels the same. Wishing violence against the kneelers or black poeple in general is not a sane desire either. Blacks do not belong back in Africa. If some want to go there, they are free to go. We do not force American citizens to leave the US just because we do not like their politics or civil defiance. Racism is a disorder and you show clear signs of being a racist. Pass the ammo? You are calling for the extermination of a whole class/culture of people because of football players taking a knee? Again, your words come from a unhealthy mind. You should seek professional counseling for your disorder so you can get over your deep set hatred for the black community before you do something only a mentally ill person would do.

        • Shut up and get your fat ass off the sofa and go get a job you lazy drunken slob. Pie is the last thing your marshmallow man boated body needs. AND EARN ENOUGH MONEY TO BUY SOME TEETH YOU TOOTHLESS OLD HO! Go slap yourself some more, you’re not quite stupid enough yet. By the way, my comment was for Bill. Try and pay attention you pu$$y hat wearing freak

    • 👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍👍🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🤝

    • I was an avid Redskins fan. It was hard to stop watching. The first year I just watched Redskins games and no others (including the Super Bowl). In 2017 I didn’t watch at all. This year I have skipped all the preseason games and I hardly miss it. I have finally gotten to the point where I just don’t care about football but it is a shame: Football used to be one of the few things that actually brought us together. The CEO and the mailroom clerk could be on an equal footing while discussing Sunday’s game.

  63. I didn’t watch to much last year I haven’t watched one preseason game this year or any regular season I’ll watch something not political Ilove our Flag and the anthem.

  64. Diane makes a total ass out of herself everytime she opens her hole. Not the one she opens for the NFL thugs, the other one. She’s about as disgusting an excuse for a human being as you can get. FBI statistics prove the ‘police brutality’ issue against blacks is totally false. The facts don’t matter to communist biotches like Diane, to her and her ilk it is more important to divide than unite. #MAGA will PREVAIL. #MAGA 2020!

    • Been reading these comments and I agree. This DIANE has a major lose screw. Hope she does not own a gun. Lol. Stupidity should be a reason to block the purchase of any fire arms.

  65. It’s your right to protest, but if any of us that work a regular job did that , on the job, we would be fired on the spot. We too have a right to protest, and i’m Not giving one cent of my money to the NFL.

  66. These overpaid, spoiled, “law abiding” people have the right to be ignorant and stupid because it’s been paid for with Veterans blood. They are welcome to go to country that they respect more and will treat them better. They have ruined a good thing.-Disabled Veteran

  67. Black athletes seem to be oblivious to the fact that the huge majority of crimes are committed by black men and therefore, put themselves at risk of being killed.
    Their ignorance of economics means they don’t realize they are probably jeapord-
    izing their sport and their huge salaries.

  68. Will not watch NFL Football as long as the NFL supports racist idiots like those football players who think they can get away with anything the want. Certainly giving them a 81 Million bride didn’t work and let’s everyone know what they are really all about.
    This is America and our Flag and Anthem is all about those whom have made it FREE. Perhaps we should put the saw called thugs on the battle field and let them understand why we stand in respect.
    Marine Veteran, not watching Bye NFL

    • I haven’t watched any NFL game the past 2 years and I could care less if they fold for as long as they disrespect the American flag. Those players doing that are using the wrong venue to voice their personal opinions/frustrations. Why can’t they be thankful for their freedom to express those personal opinions/frustrations. Try doing that in a place like NK or Venezuela, or Cuba and see how they last.

  69. as long as they protest I will refuse to watch them on t.v. or spend my money for the N.F.L ticket. fix it or loose more people. Funny if I protested in my line of work my customers would not use my business.

  70. He$$ NO! I quit watching the moment I saw they weren’t going to do anything to Kaepernick, and I have NO intention of coming back to watch MILLION DOLLAR CRYBABIES disrespect our Flag and National Anthem!

    I served to allow them their first Amendment right to free speech, but a) on the job is NOT the place to protest (if I did it on my job I WOULD BE FIRED!) and b) instead of showing the disrespect of this country, maybe they should try going into their communities and try to do something there, where it would make more of a difference…one community at a time! What they are doing isn’t help those communities, and they are cutting their noses off their faces to spite themselves, because if this keeps up, they won’t have their million dollar a year jobs, and then what will they do?!

    Good-bye forever NFL, from a 40 + year fan!

  71. Another season I won’t be watching.When these high paid primadonnas start respecting our flag and what it stands for I will start watching again.Fire that commisioner and get someone with balls.Watch college football instead.More exciting.

  72. The NTFL is finished with the majority of American patriots…. btw NTFL Satan’s for…National Thug Football League….Gooddel has allowed the Thugs to rule the league…

  73. I think it is disgraceful with the kind of money they are making. If they don’t respect this country, then why don’t they leave. They have enough money to leave. I was born in l941 and every male in my family, my father, my uncles all served during the war. One came home severely injured They didn’t have to enlist, but they wanted to fight for our country and its citizens. If they want to protest, why dont they do it on their time. Like anything else in entertainment, they watch to be entertained and nothing more.

  74. I now know the rules for Rugbee and am learning the words and tune for “Oh Canada.” Thank you NBC for more of it and soccer where I live. Does than answer your question?

  75. Roger Goodall should be fired for not stopping this knelling in the beginning. He has stopped other things that have no meaning. Also he and all pro sports people are way over paid.

  76. I haven’t watch football since all this crap started, I’m done with football my TV would never see football on it again and I would never go to any game again.
    Shut it down it’s doing nothing but hurting this country, I hope they all lose their jobs

    • Leave it to the NBC (Nothing But Crap) network to frame the question in such a way as to elicit a more “favorable” response to the protesters. More Fake News reporting!!

  77. This article says the protest of our nation is about racial inequalities. Before, it was about police brutality. For Americans it is against the USA. Stupid thing for men living high due to freedom and capitalismw

  78. These cry babies need to go play “football” in one of the countries that have soccer instead. They sure won’t be making millions playing on one of those teams. I don’t know what the highest paid player makes on a soccer team, but I would bet it’s nothing close to what the clowns of the NFL are making. They won’t be getting paid with any of MY dollars. I have always thought that college football is more exciting to watch, so I’m sticking with that from now on. The NFL can wither on the vine and fall to the ground for all I care. They should have listened to their fans instead of a bunch of over paid pain in the rear cry baby football “players”. RIP NoFansLeft.

    • They must have had too many concussions. Just like hillary when she was too retarded to answer FBI questions. Blamed memory loss on head injury.

      • Guess 16 hours testifying wasn’t enough for you? 45 is too chickensh*t to sit for one….must be because every time he opens his big, fat mouth, he lies. You ignorant, racist POS’s just don’t get why they kneel, do you? Maybe if someone breaks it down into simpleton terms for you, you might…….Rosa Parks wasn’t protesting the bus; Ghandi wasn’t protesting the food; NFL players aren’t protesting the flag, anthem or their country……..they are peacefully protesting police brutality on people of color. Did you know (probably not because FACTS escape you dimwits) that on June 14, 1943 The Supreme Court ruled that no one can be forced to participate in patriotic rituals such as the Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem???

        • Just saying killery is in the same shape as these mush heads in the NFL. All too retarded to function. And if I’m racist I praise the Father , Son and Holy Ghost I only ask that people earn my respect. I’m hard to impress. This goes for assholes that wants to throw the race card because they are to damned stupid to win the argument. You listening RicB??

          • If people of color acted like they have some smarts they would get along fine. I know plenty of them that do great because they don’t live outside the law. If I was police I would shoot their asses if they tried to take my weapon. Granted the police isn’t always right, like the one in ckaeston SC whom shot the guy in the back and was videoed planting a throwdown. But it seems like an armed black guy can shoot at police, get shot and they want to burn the town down. Go eat a watermelon Diane. 🍉

          • Dan – Oh you don’t have to questioned whether or not you’re a racist……the jury is in on that one…..you ARE. Just who in the hell would even WANT your respect? Now that’s funny and shows how clueless you truly are. Your watermelon racist statement isn’t working anymore, since I’m not black. Again, clueless. Sad.

          • Dan, you have that right. The players are the ones throwing the race card. I wonder if Diane hangs out with those players in the off season. If she does, then I wonder why she isn’t commenting on why the biggest part of them making all those big dollars never go back to where they came from and help the younger ones get out of the gangs and the “hood” and make something out of themselves. No, these guys are out spending their money on huge houses, fancy cars, clothes, jewelry, and their women. They couldn’t care less about the ones from the neighborhood they came from.

          • Nancy – Again, another clueless Trump supporter. Just babbles and post crap without any proof or facts. Most NFL players have charities and help a lot of people in and out of their communities……….do you, Nancy? Or do you just spout ignorant comments? I think we know that answer.

        • It doesn’t matter. They have every right to protest, that is the American way. – but do it on your own time not on the job . THAT TO ME IS THE DISRESPECT part. Let me ask you something , – if they are so concerned why do only a handful (less than a half of 1%) donate their time or money ?? Half of them don’t even know why they kneel. So please stop with your righteous crap.

        • Peaking of pieces of shit you do realize what they are protesting is a nothing burger when you consider in Chicago they have had 23 killings alone in just a 3 day weekend? all black on black crimes you know absolutely nothing about anything we can tell with your racist remarks spare us your bullshit!

          • Jolly Chicago is a democratic shithole. It’s time to break out operation exile that changed things in Richmond Va in around 1996. Look it up. They could take their city back. But they won’t. Their answer is to harass law abiding people whom own guns.

        • Who are you kidding? It’s all political. Wasn’t till Trump got in office that they started kneeling! Typical Liberal comment!!

        • 45 don’t have to sit with the corrupted leaders of the FBI he didn’t give away secrets to hurt this country 45 is only improving this country and making America great again even though you a liberal Democrats are trying to hold it back because you’re not for the for the country you’re more for your party and your hurt the country doing it

        • Hey traitor, it’s not what they are protesting but to do it during the Anthem is treasonous and the are disrespecting all those who sacrificed their life so these rich spoiled plays can disrespect America!

        • It’s not a question of being forced its Amaterasu of respect for the country that made them rich. Why don’t they use that capitalist money in inner cities to alleviate poverty

        • We get why they’re CLAIMING they kneel; now answer me this: HOW MANY have actually taken a cent of their millions in pay that the FANS pay their salaries with and gone to the areas where the trouble is and DONE anything about it? 0; yep that’s right, a big fat ZERO! They aren’t really protesting anything, just virtue signaling and grabbing attention to themselves on their BOSSES’ time and dime! IF they really want to protest, do it on their own time and dime! And DO SOMETHING CONCRETE to help the situation!

        • BS I bet that most players have no idea what they are protesting. What is going to happen when nobody watches or buys an over priced NFL ticket? ?

        • Then move out of the country the only racist I am reading her is you Daine. Leave this a fight going out every 5 minutes take your racist ass out of the greatest country in the world. We don’t need or want a racist Flag hating, God-hating people like you here. Stand for the fallen or get the hell out.

        • Diane, did you know that people of color kill more of their own then the Police who have killed more White people then Black OF COURSE NOT BECAUSE YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO DO RESEARCH OF SOMETHING THAT GOES AGAINST WHAT YOU WANT TO BELIEVE! Now here is a question that even you should be able to find the answer to if you are so all fired to call Patriotic Americans ignorant, How many of what you call good guys have done ONE SINGLE THING FOR THEIR COMMUNITIES? Now don’t want you to hurt that little pea you call a brain but I am sure you will find it is very few and more then likely those few don’t kneel. So before you go opening your mouth from now on be sure your brain is engaged!!!!

        • Maybe because he has no reason to sit and answer dumb questions from his subordinate who should be under investigation himself and who should never have been put in charge of this fake investigation. Stop being a racist pos Diane. You are nothing more than a cur looking to snap at people because YOU LOST! STFU you nobody.

      • Killery Clingon has something else going on too. Did you see the video of her at Aretha Franklins funeral? She had to be helped up the steps and she is getting really wide in the caboose. Slick Willy spent his time looking at the entertainers rear end while she was singing. I mean STARING. He didn’t even try to be “slick” about it. He looks a little better than the last time I saw him, but I think their pictures that they keep in the closet aren’t keeping them from aging anymore. The sooner they finish their bucket list the better for all of us.

      • Means to the end the NFL the liberals hate multi millionaires that play sports. Most players make more than congressman or senator’s that’s why you hadhave to leave politics out of sports but that will never happen NFL is a thing of the past

  79. Have not watched an NFL game since Koepernick first hit his knee. Will not watch any NFL game until players and owners and League realize capitalism fills their pockets and players realize that there are more appropriate ways & means to protest whatever grievance these came from nothing millionaires think they have. I don’t even read the sports page nor any posts on the internet. I watch NCAA football (until those players join their big brothers).
    I have coached and refereed soccer and whenever I feel a need will watch it instead!

    • Diane I don’t give a rare ass what you think of me. I’m respected among my friends and family. And we don’t talk race issues. That’s for you brain dead commiecrats while you’re trolling for victims. Let’s talk about West Virginia late senator Robert Byrd. A democrat whom had been a KKK leader. A darling of the left. A few years back he used a racial slur on tv. Look it up.

      • Thanks Nancy. The great pay and benefits those guys get come from living in the USA. And if anyone in authority wrongs them it will be handled. There is no reason to disrespect our flag and country because of the actions of a few.

          • NOW I see why Diane is on here messing with everyone. She’s a dyed in the wool Liberal air-head. She doesn’t believe in God, or Jesus His son and my and your Savior. Poor little libby balloon head. My my. Oh and this is for Diane, no sweetie, I’m not just spouting like you do. Do YOU have any facts about what you were saying??? Doubt it. Why don’t you go play with your little libturd commies and leave the adults here alone. You only come on here to see who you can mess with. You couldn’t care less about those idiots on their knees. I stand for the Anthem, and kneel for my LORD !!!!

          • Dan, you don’t give yourself full credit — you don’t need to be called names for you to be rude . . . I thought that about you for a long time now, even without comments about you. A racist pig and one who can’t seem to have a discussion without insulting some one.

  80. You know, I really don’t care anymore about what happens to the No Fans Left organization. They are too stupid to rescue their failing brand and with that kind of attitude toward their income, they can join Sears and countless other failing businesses that didn’t listen to their Customers.

  81. So they think they can still disrespect the flag by staying in the locker room? We the people must show these spoiled multimillionaires that we will not forget and move on. We stay strong for the police officers and soldiers.

  82. I won’t ever watch any game in sports that disrespect our FLAG and ANTHEM. And the Owners will keep loosing Money if thay do not stop them. Thay should be Heavily fined and the second time Loose there Contract. And should be BLACK LISTED from every Meager League in the USA where thay can not play agean. Let them go to some other Country. Thay are not Welcome in American AGEAN if thay HATE America we don’t want them here. Let them go to IRAN thay will fill at HOME there.

  83. I won’t watch. I have banned all NFL games from my home. Let’s the disrespectful pieces of sh– go play in North Korea..

  84. Who will the players protest to when salaries have to cut for a lack of attendance and viewership? GOL if that happens. G = guffaw.

    • LET’s just hope that the season ticket holders have their own protests, like stay out in the parking lot for the first half. Or get up during the game and file out one row at a time until the stadium is empty.

      • I like that idea of filing out one row at a time until the stadium is empty. Now THAT would send a statement! Great idea! Hope someone organizes that one. I’d turn on my TV to watch that happen. No more nfl ever for this house. Haven’t watched in over a year.

  85. I don’t care what anyone else does. I’m done with them after being a fan for 50 years. I wonder how their season tickets sales went.

  86. I used to be a huge football fan I will never again watch the NFL no matter what they do .
    I am now a Saturday football fan go Alabama. ! ! !

  87. The NFL, its leadership and especially the players who ‘take a knee’ are a public disgrace to their ‘fans’, to this country and especially to themselves

  88. The ones that are kneeling are biting off the hand that feeds them they need to be taken out of the game and fired from their multimillion-dollar jobs that I so racially motivated are the Packers going to make enough money this year to pay Rogers along with all of them overpaid prima donnas unpatriotic attic fools I wish I could have picked who I put my life on the line for it wouldn’t be any of them in the NFL

  89. No matter how low the numbers get they will continue on the same path, that’s what liberals do. The majority aren’t savy to business practices.

    The players sure need more education in statistics and economics. They could help culturally and mentor family structure and self reliance.

  90. I agree 100%. I used to watch all day Sunday, Monday night, and Thursday. Haven’t watched a game since Krappernick started this BS three years ago. Bunch of high priced crybabies that could never come close to making the $$$ they make in any other country in the world. Total disrespect for those that fought and died for their freedoms. Even if they stop I’ll never watch another game as they would only be doing it because their paycheck is becoming leaner. I also don’t patronize NFL game sponsors.

  91. . That’s what happens when you disrespect our country. Oh well..tough! Don’t slap the Americans in the face and then spit on them. You got what you deserve and it will get worse!

    • Dan, the NFL is nothing but a Krapperneck Hole, who will pay the price induced by a tall ugly, mental midgit that has brought their sport to a halt by disrespect. He has managed to bring it to a old outhouse smell that will not go away and save my wallet money that was once spent on these ignorant idiots. You are right they do belong in some shithole.

    • I don’t think there is anything they can do to get me back,, I am done. I like playing fetch with my dog more than watchging the dogs of the NFL
