The fact he was even put in this position is screwed up, he should blame Trump, but he won't, true heroes don't point fingers even at those who deserve it.
All Trump did was comment on their bullshit protests. The moment the players got political was the moment they opened themselves up to criticism. The league is getting paid to do this. It is their job and they are not doing it. The military should get a refund and these bastards should be fired for it. If a barista at Starbucks dropped to a knee and said I am protesting whatever he would be fired for not doing his job.

Ratings are down and will continue to go down as long as the league lets this crap go on. If ad revenue goes down then the TV networks will renegotiate the contracts. Teams looking for new stadiums better be willing to put up all of the money themselves because tax payers, who already hate paying for stadiums, will stop paying for them and any politician that says ok will be voted out of office in that vote alone. The league has to look at the long big picture and letting this crap continue will end the NFL like the ghetto bullshit destroyed the NBA.

^I did not say that they did not have the right to do it but once it is done they have no right to be upset for getting fired for it. They are being paid to do a job by a sponsor (the military). The better stand up for it or they get no check and don't have a job.

If that is their decision then so be it. But you can't take the money then say fuck you. Give the money back.

I will use the Starbucks analogy again. Sassan walks into a Starbuck and orders a pumpkin spice latte Venti with soy. They take his money. The barista, protesting all things Iranian or the shitty Iranian nuke deal, takes a knee and refused to make you the faggy drink you just ordered. The owner of the local store supports the bigot barista. The owner says some bullshit free speech and all that crap. You say fine I will go elsewhere. He says that is your right. You say please refund my money. He says fuck you. It is free speech and you have no right to bitch, moan and complain just because the barista made your coffee political.

That's a bad analogy. Sassan paid for drink he didn't get. Football players get paid to play not stand/sit for anthem.

Thank you for proving my point. I am against that shit too. Give us the names of the companies that took your money and didn't give it back and I will support a boycott of them as well.

This will probably make or break the protests:

DirecTV reportedly offering NFL Sunday Ticket refunds to fans angered by protests

NFL Sunday Ticket is a service offered by DirecTV that allows football fans to watch every NFL game, every week. It costs $280. Ordinarily, you cannot get a refund for the service once the season starts.

This year, however, DirecTV is offering an unprecedented refund for at least some subscribers who are canceling their subscription due to anger over players protesting during the national anthem. The Wall Street Journal originally reported on the change in policy.

ESPN.com spoke to a spokesman from AT&T, which owns DirecTV, who declined to confirm the change in policy and said the company would not be sharing any statistics on the number of subscribers who canceled for this reason and received refunds. The New York Post spoke to one such subscriber, who claimed that a customer service representative told him that there were already five similar cancellation calls to his own on Tuesday.

^ great stop watching, nobody gives a fuck, you ever been harassed because of your skin color? probably not.

(some) White people and Trump have completely misconstrued a protest against police brutality, profiling and racism in general into something anti American because of course, white people are always the victim. It has nothing to do with patriotism, it's about equality and being mad at black people peacefully protesting is perfect fucking irony.

"No good nigger"... again, perfect fucking irony.

Dude. I am 4.8% Indian (feather not dot). My people are and were more oppressed than any ethnic group. My indian blood hates my Italian blood and causes me great pain each and every day. My people were slaughtered, forcibly removed from their lands and forced to abandon their religiin and culture. Stop your oppression and dismissing my more victim opinion.

But in this case, the bigot barrista did serve you the drink - i.e., the NFL players did play the game per their contract. Show me the clause in their contract that requires them to stand for the anthem.

You need to work on your analogies.
