    If the NFL wants to be on the so-called "right side" as is currently being determined by left-wing radicals, then it will suffer the consequences.

    Players have every right to kneel during the anthem, and thus fans have every right to turn off the TV and not attend games.

    I do have to wonder, since the NFL is listed as a non-profit, could taking a political stance put the non-profit status in jeopardy?

    If I tried to protest in a similar way during my work hours, I would be fired on the spot and would deserve it. NFL players are no different.

    If the NFL had a real backbone (such as Pete Rozelle), this would have been nipped in the bud last year with player fines or suspensions.

    What these players don't seem to understand is that they are strangling the golden goose that is paying their salaries. NFL ratings are in the tank and will only continue to get worse.
    I totally agree. I stopped watching last year and have never missed it. My husband is going to contact Direct TV and drop the NFL package. They will be getting lots of those calls I would guess. The players stupidity will eventually bite them in the wallet. People will not support their crap.

    Killing the NFL will probably have some interesting impacts on college football too.

    You suddenly believe in "trickle down"

    Seriously, I think we will see some college players taking a knee soon. It will happen.

    Re: Turn Off the NFL

    I tried dropping my NFL package and couldn't get it done "Today" due to lack of provider assistance. I wonder if they're being bombarded. Come tomorrow the NFL won't even be available in my house... good ridence.

    But, beyond that I just love this. Yes, nasty ole non-Hispanic white people. But, why do Hispanics get a pass? They are nothing but descendants of Cortez's Spaniards, EUROPEANS!!! The Conquistadors who slaughtered the Aztecs, Incas, and the Mayans. Why do you think there are Spanish-speaking peoples in Mexico, Central America, parts of South America? Oh, what about Brazilians, descendants of the Portuguese, from where....? Oh! from Portugal, more EUROPEANS! And it was the Portuguese, more than any other nation, who is responsible for the slave trade to the Americas. Yes, the Dutch were also involved, but it was Portugal that dominated the industry. Oh, but now....because they are darker-skinned, why, they are suddenly helpless. Poor, poor woeful them.

    So, since it is non-Hispanic Christian white people who are the cause of all those poeples' woes, they should seek to live where there aren't any. But, where? Oh! I know. Mooslim Africa. Yes, that's the ticket. Surely all those who blame non-Hispanic Christian white people for all their troubles would find paradise in the Congo! Maybe even Tanzania, Kenya, the Ivory Coast even. Perfect. They can elect Colon Kapumpernickle as their first emperor!

    All I can say to that is.....bye!

    If you think America is as good for hispanics, blacks or Muslims as it is for white Christians, you have your head in the sand.

    That's not the same as what you posted. If you think it's simple, I don't think you understand it...whether you agree or disagree with the course of action or even the material issues, it's not simple. Not even close.
