Actually that might be what I heard about, I had heard it on the radio that some team had done that, but I tuned in after they had already mentioned the team so I didn't know which one. But the rationale was that they did it because they didn't want to give anyone any chance to be offended. In other words didn't want to give the players the choice of kneeling or not.

What is there even to kneel over? There are more deaths at the hands of police for the black community because they commit more violent crime.

They didn't even kneel, they didn't even show up. I guess these players are oppressed. I didn't see the Patriots or the Cowboys playing politics.

Even funnier, the Steelers could lose their first game to the Bears now.

The ravens are down 44 as well. Obama 44 karma.

Bunch of multi-millionaire spoiled brats showing flat out disrespect.

Not surprised to be honest. These are guys who won the genetic/athletic lottery and have been treated like gods their entire lives, so they think they really are.

I'm sure they are going to blame Trump for this lost somehow.

The only way to protest the teams pulling this crap is to stop giving the NFL Money. And that seems to slowly be happening. But sadly people will always put something like Sports above things like Patriotism in this Modern World.

I just don't see how you can say it has nothing to do with the flag when you choose the time it is displayed to protest. lol You can literally pick any other time to protest your perception of racism, and that is the time you choose. There are post game interviews, mid week interviews. Hell, you can bring it up on any guest appearance. They have thousands, if not millions, of social media followers so why pick that time?

I love how they are too dumb to not be manipulated. Trump made comments and now more people than ever are kneeling and protesting. Except...now it's just an anti-Trump thing lol. The original purpose has been lost. It's not about police brutality, just about giving Trump the middle finger.

Hilarious. Best part is they are too thick in the head to see it.

But at least one guy from the Steelers didn't act like a pussy. He stood for it. Why? Cuz he actually served.

There were some very dark racial undertones in what you just posted.

Sportscasters are saying the President needs to keep politics out of football, but they can bring politics into football and thats ok.

I didn't know standing for the national anthem was bringing politics into football. I do know kneeling for fake causes is.

Do you think they will ever take a knee over all the black on black crime?

The knee started over the hands up don't shoot thing I believe, which turned out to be a false narrative. It morphed into taking a knee. People still believe Michael Brown had his hands up, he didn't.

For many decades. The black community here is thriving. Well, the funeral homes in these communities are thriving anyways.

Here's a reasonable article that's the what's, why's, etc. of the protests. It's lighter on spin than most articles on the topic, though not devoid of it. But I do think it disambiguates some misconceptions and lays out various common criticisms in recent events:
https://sports.yahoo.com/nfl-protes...-191623412.html

I tend to always side on supporting peaceful protest, regardless of my level of agreement for/against the cause. You can get pretty far into the weeds on the issues themselves without clear, obvious answers. But the right to protest peacefully should always be respected.

Support for the players' protests is fairly low right now. But then, historical protests that are now viewed favorably were similarly unfavorable at the time in public opinion, such as the 1993 gay rights marches that many claim started that modern movement, as well as surprisingly low approval for revered figures like MLK during the civil rights movement, whose reputation in the public sphere has grown with age.

My other big issue is an unwillingness to listen Everyone's talking. But if there are protests, right or wrong, there are intelligent people behind them. I'm quite removed from racial discrimination in my life. So mostly, I just listen to those who aren't.
