Here's another metric for assessing the ideology (Conservative or regressive) of NFL players. Which player or players have openly denounced the lack of respect shown by players kneeling during the playing of the National Anthem? Which player or players have publicly expressed their pride in being an American and thus stand when the American flag is spotlighted during the playing of the National Anthem?

This country is about making the most of what you have. Making personal choices about your path, how you live your life, how you spend your money....... Personal freedom. Taking advantage of a God given gift (athleticism) even if you weren't blessed with a genius IQ. Flip the script: no one is lambasting the folks who are PhD's who throw a baseball like a girl.

What about the NFL players that SERVED? What about Alejandro Villanueva? What about Pat Tillman, who gave his life? What about the kids (back, white, or otherwise) who won a scholarship to an Ivy League school and made it to the NFL?

And then there is this..... It is really the crux of the author's ENTIRE intent:

The author is painting the ENTIRE NFL player pool with one, broad stroke. Pretty revealing.

Pizz poor attempt, but some here are all aboard, hook, line, and sinker. We (conservatives) think the left is the "cancel culture" but half the folks here jump on board with this drivel and prove it goes both ways.

Surprise! There are PLENTY of well educated, respectful, law-abiding, God-fearing, conservative players in the NFL.

But you've never know it.

I have much better things to do....than watch any sports.

I am not a spectator.

If the losing team captain was sacrificed .........I could have a little interest.

I still watch sports on occasion. Except the NFL no longer qualifies as that. In my previous post I mentioned watching high school football on a local cable access station. It's nice to see a good, down to earth football game instead of a bunch of multi millionaire social justice theater actors on their big national stage trying to influence America to believe in whatever the latest liberal, Hollywood mantra is being decreed.

For those who wanna watch any sports player disrespect the flag, you do your thing, I will do mine.

I used to watch sports because they entertained me. And I view them as entertainers. No different than any entertainer be it a music, movie star, or any other entertainer.

But if any entertainer disrespects my flag, I have no need of them in my life. The flag they were born under, gave them life, and freedom. By disrespecting the flag, they are no longer entertaining me - they are pissing me off.

That’s how I see it.

Good article. And look up Johnathan Isaac of the NBA. He’s got it figured out.

I boycotted the NFL years ago but for some unknown reason a lot of people who claim to be Patriots continued to support them

Well - OK - since you act as if you are thus knowledgeable - how many is "plenty"? Got a number, or a percentage? Or a clue?
WHERE IS duck911 WITH THE ANSWER FOR THIS ONE??

NHL had 1 kneel. Fans are pissed that the players aren't kneeling.


If Obama is the answer, must have been a pretty stupid question.

In my home the only pro sports that get watched are the bass tournaments. The Mrs. is a big fan. If she's not going to be home, she'll DVR them.

Who is the one that kneeled? I can tell you this fan and all of the NHL fans I know are not pissed that players aren't kneeling. Matter of fact NHL is the only sport I and most I know will watch any more.

To all those NFL, NBA, MLB, and NHL players professing to be Christian: Jonathan Isaac. He is the modern equivalent of Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.

For those who don't recall this Sunday School lesson, these three men were cast into a fiery furnace for refusing to kneel before the image of King Nebuchadnezzar. Daniel 3.
This also ties into the First Commandment. I am the Lord thy God, thou shalt have no other gods before me.

My First Commandment takes precedent over your First Amendment.


For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: "If a man will not work, he shall not eat."

I wonder if the high school players will be kneeling this fall. I don’t expect it to happen in our neck of the woods, but it bet it happens in other areas,

Just food for thought. If this country becomes the socialist hellhole that so many want it to become, I will show no reverence to the flag. We are perhaps one election away from that.

If President Trump is not re-elected I will probably fly my flag upside down. It is an international distress signal not not disrespectful. Sure looks bad though.

No sports for me other than hunting and shooting. My time is to valuable to bother to watch any over paid idiots.
