    Hey, Joy, I’m no Christian, but their religion teaches penitence and considers kneeling as an act of self-abasement to their God. Of course they’ll be kneeling, you idiot! They will kneel as a sign of obeisance to their deity, not as an act of defiance against their country of birth.

    Stupid bitch.

  3. Wes says:

    I can’t believe Alabama Republicans are poised to vote for that theocratic embarassment.

    Slow morning. Are we NFL’d out? Found this oddity on twitter. School textbook illustrators slipping a bit of adult humor into their work. Mind you this is the U.K.; I don’t think this would slip by in the US.

    “Trump is an idiot. Played right into the hands of the left. I guess he can’t help himself. Way to go, Donald. Moron.”

    -Disagree with Phil, agree with Tgca on most of this.

    Didn’t the NFL deny both Trump and Limbaugh ownership slots in the past? Looks like Trump holds a grudge (surprise, surprise!).

    Pointed out somewhere else – NFL is organized as a non-profit…….something tells me that should change.

  9. Tina says:

    Gubment should stop advertising on. Nfl. Take their ad revenue away.

  10. biomom says:

    Loved the Ravens and Flacco. Not after this. Do not disrespect your country and president on foreign soil. Glad they lost badly and wish both teams could have lost. And Pittsburg is just going to skip the anthem completely. What a profile of courage! No more NFL for me.

  11. Bitterlaw says:

    At the Eagles-Giants game, the National Anthem was sung by a black sailor. It was one of the best renditions that I have ever heard. Protest tally-

    2 kneeling Giants.
    1 Eagle with a raised fist

  12. Bitterlaw says:

    I will continue to watch. I respect those who will not watch. Both can be true.

  14. Bitterlaw says:

    I am offended that the Eagles’ secondary sucks. However, I will not protest.

  15. lisab says:

    what about the eagle’s primary?

  16. lisab says:

    i am boycotting the nfl today

    of course i boycott pretty much every day

    but this time i have reasons

  17. Bitterlaw says:

    The Eagle who raised his fist just knocked the Giants out of field goal range. Booooooooo on the protest. Yessssssss on the tackle. Life is complex.

  18. Bitterlaw says:

    16 is why lisab’ trash talk about the Patriots is Zzzzzzzzz.

  19. lisab says:

    well it is not like i am on the team or anything, so i really cannot take credit for them being the best franchise in nfl history

  20. Mr.Vito says:

    Maybe the problem is that most of the Eagles players barely made it through primary and secondary school.

  21. Mr.Vito says:

    ZING!

  22. jason says:

    Since the NFL players can’t respect the flag I am watching golf today.

  23. Mr.Vito says:

    As usual, the left overreacts… kneeling for the symbol of the US revolution that freed us from the monarchy that they then stood to honor.

    Joy apparently forgot that they complained when Tebow kneeled on the field and told him to keep it in church.

    A profile in courage! Invite him to January’s State of the Union Address. Also, Cubs’ Manager Joe Madden sounds off against players politicking in sports.

  26. NYCmike says:

    “Invite him to January’s State of the Union Address.”

    -Disagree with this. He should not be invited because he stood for the anthem. If Trump did invite him, I bet he would decline, since it is NOT for Trump that he stood, but for the flag and country.

  27. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    #27
    I was being light-hearted. I agree with you.

  28. Bitterlaw says:

    Broncos take 10-7 lead over Bills. Don’t tell Jason. He is boycotting.

  29. Bitterlaw says:

    Of course, boycotting is easier when the Broncos game is not on tv in Jason’s area.

  30. Bitterlaw says:

    Really dumb call. Eagles go for it on 4th and 8 at the Giants 45. Sack. Giants get ball at Eagles 49.

  35. NYCmike says:

    Far Right Parties in Germany?

    We need new names, because in Germany, that is something to fear.

    I would also point out Nazis should be considered Far Left, since they are technically socialist fascists.

  43. Bitterlaw says:

  44. Bitterlaw says:

    Maybe Trump can demand a boycott of the American League until it ends the Designated Hitter.

  45. NYCmike says:

    Kaep is wrong.
    Trump statement is silly.
    Strip the exemption.
    Players play, actors act, I ignore.

  46. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    San Diego’s NFL team moved to Los Angeles. Not many people cared. They now have dismal attendance in Los Angeles, and there is even talk of them trying to come back. The latest controversy will nix any possibility of that — this city has a lot of military and retired military. At this point, I no longer watch or want an NFL team.

  47. Cash Cow TM says:

    Wow.

    Cow has a comment in moderation…

    try again..

    Not watching feetsball.

    Was flipping through channels and lingered on a feetsball game that was just before half someone has blocked a FG and the moron ChiBears defender who scooped it up and ran for like 80 yards slowed down to walk over goal line and put on a show.

    Someone from kicking team caught up with the overpaid and probably lowly educated idiot and knocked ball loose at the one and another guy knocked it out of end zone.

    idiot!

    Not sure if the idiot bonehead was a kneeler or an arm linker.

    A$$ holes like that player should be fired because he is an idiot who puts showboating ahead of his team and the game.

    Fricking idiot…

  48. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Most NFL teams play in stadiums built in part through public subsidies, if there players are no longer willing to respect the flag, there are more important priorities for municipal monies.

  49. Bitterlaw says:

    Cash Cow – Tell Walt that Rasoul Douglass (rookie from West Virginia) is playing very well for the Eagles at cornerback.

  50. Bitterlaw says:

    Uh oh. Do I have to boycott giving money for hurricane relief for groups that had ads by NFL players.

  51. Cash Cow TM says:

    Here is a solution to the fricking idiot feetsball players who want (I assume) to voice displeasure about injustice, not living in a perfect word, Trump, global warming, other overpaid and over glorified football players who beat the crap out of their wives or girlfriends, ingrown toenails, wild animals in the forest not wearing clothes or whatever the heck they are protesting by feeling the need to kneel during the national anthem and thereby pretty much spit in the face of everyone who believes their kneeling shows unacceptable disrespect to the nation and to the majority of Americans who actually understand that honoring and respecting your country and those (and the families) who sacrificed and bled and died to uphold the unparalleled principles for which this country was founded and for which we strive, should not include kneeling while NA is being sung.

    At the beginning of each game have the distraught players sign a petition of whatever is the flavor of the protest of the day that has their underwear tied in a knot and have that petition shown on TV and read the names of the underwear wadded players.

    So they get their angst out, without figuratively hocking big lugies in the face of tens of millions of Americans.

    frigging idiots….

  52. Cash Cow TM says:

    Bitter,

    Walt says he does not give a “flying flipping fig” (direct quote) about pro feetsball–even if they are products of WVU.

    As for Cash Cow, I am glad a former WVU guy is helping out the Eagles as they struggle along.

  53. Bitterlaw says:

    So Cash Cow supports the right of NFL players to protest during games. He just does not the protest during the anthem.

  54. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    55. Most people would face termination if they carried on a political protest while they were at work. Agree with the Treasury Secretary:

    “Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said Sunday that NFL owners should decide on a rule on how to handle players who kneel in protest during the national anthem.

    “The owners should meet and decide on this rule the way they decide on any other rule,” Mnuchin said on CNN’s “State of the Union.”
    “The NFL has all different types of rules,” he said. “You can’t have stickers on your helmet. You have to have your uniforms tucked in. What the President is saying is, and I think, the owners should meet and they should vote on a rule.””

    Am not paying money for stadium tickets or otherwise supporting the NFL to watch the flag and national anthem disrespected at a game.

  55. NYCmike says:

    They should have followed the NBA’s example from the late 1990’s.

  56. Phil says:

    The golf tournament is pretty good. Spieth holed a wedge for an eagle a few holes ago and is making a charge. Just dropped a stroke, however. We are enjoying our Sunday just fine without watching the Social Justice League (SJL) formally known as the NFL.

  57. Bitterlaw says:

    This is a serious crisis. A Texan is watching golf instead of football.

  58. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Attendance is falling badly at NFL games:

    http://www.businessinsider.com/nfl-attendance-down-2017-9

    “But the game also served as a reminder of one of the NFL’s recent woes: poor attendance.
    Shots of the stadium, like the one above, made clear that attendance was dismal for the primetime game. Despite claims that attendance was over 70,000, anyone with eyes could see that the stadium was largely empty, with even some of the best seats in the lower bowl left untaken.
    As SFGate noted, tickets were available on secondary markets for just $14 — about the price of a beer and hot dog inside the stadium. And still, few people found the time to support the Niners in person.
    People on the internet took notice, inspiring headlines including “The 49ers and Rams Played a Great Game in Front of an Empty Stadium” at The Big Lead and “It Appears Not Many People are Physically at the Rams-49ers Thursday Night Game” from Sports Illustrated.”

  59. NYCmike says:

    Jets win, Bills beat Denver……..but Patriots just went ahead with 23 seconds left.

  60. Phil says:

    I hadn’t thought of it that way, Bitter.

    This obviously must be serious.

  61. Phil says:

    Texans almost beat the Patriots? Not a bad showing. Too bad I cannot watch them any longer.

    What do you bet JJ didn’t take a knee?

  62. Bitterlaw says:

    IT’S GOOOOOOOOOOOD! Eagles win on 61 yard field goal as time expires.

  63. Phil says:

    Immaterial. What matters is did the FG kicker take a knee and show his outrage at, uh, injustice or whatever.

  64. Tgca says:

    Markel says: …she would listen to the “concerns, worries and anxieties” of voters of the anti-immigration, anti-Islam Alternative for Germany (AfD) in order to win them back.

    I love how politicians disrespect their voters before elections but then claim they respect their judgment and now willing to listen. Idiotic, arrogance. Now she’s lost folks to the fringe party.

    It’s like the spouse who gets caught cheating and is now sooooo sorry. Clearly, these people only regret the consequences and not their choices.

  65. Mr.Vito says:

    I’d rather hear updates on curling.

  66. Mr.Vito says:

    My 8-year-old daughter just swore off NFL football this afternoon… she read a book about 9/11 instead…

    Good choice.

  67. Tgca says:

    Drudge says Hitler’s underwear sold for $6,700. I bet I could get a good price for mine here st HHR. It’ll be a bidding war between Author, MD, and Chicon. The biding will start at $50. Do I hear $50…

  68. Mr.Vito says:

    Washed or unwashed?

  69. Phil says:

    Anyone ever notice on each thread Robbie and poster Trump either are both absent together or both always show up together.

    Got to be the same person. Never see one without the other.

  70. NYCmike says:

    Heh….a Sock asking that question….

  71. NYCmike says:

    No bad news today……waiting on Robbie to find some.

  72. Phil says:

    It’s still early.

  73. Tgca says:

    Sally Jenkins thinks the nation respects and loves football too much, and will rally around the players and leagues as they continue to oppose Trump. Another clueless person that needs to get outside the MSM and get in touch with the real world.

    It’s a job. They have an employer. Do your job and save your politics for your personal time. The vast majority of Americans would not be allowed to bring unwanted controversy and scrutiny to their employers but these bums think they are above the rules.

  74. Mr.Vito says:

    I blame CTE.

  75. Tgca says:

    NY Jets owner calls it an honor or privilege to stand with players.

    I think the headline should read: NY Jets owner calls it an honor and privilege to stand against law enforcement.

  76. JulStol says:

    So…we’re not discussing the Sudanese immigrant who shot up a church in Tennessee today? Okay. Carry on…

  77. Tgca says:

    I think Trump should invite major law enforcement groups to WH in place of rescinding and declining requests of the sports teams. Let’s see how the owners like when the Trump gives a voice to law enforcement who do a hell of lot more for society than these players at a mere fraction of the pay and without the adoring fan base and MSM to approve of every self-promoting charity work they do.

  78. Tgca says:

    Well, it’s Sunday and Sunday is an excellent time to discuss ABORTION. Any takers?

  79. Paul says:

    If only Trump had been aborted.

  80. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    On the ground report from the Patriots’ game:
    “Whole bunch of Patriots players are kneeling. There are some boos in the crowd.”

  81. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    Very diplomatic quote from a football team owner;

    “Los Angeles Chargers owner Dean Spanos made an enigmatic remark: “The NFL and its players, more than anything, have been a force for good.””

  82. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “Pittsburgh Steelers Stay Off Field During Anthem, Crowd Boos Them When They Return.”

    Surprised this would be a headline in Yahoo.

    Almost no Democratic politicians appear to be speaking up in favor of the players, they know this would be a toxic issue

  83. Tgca says:

    Good for what? Driving up prices of tickets so most average workers can’t afford it? Beating your wives and girlfriends? Killing animals? Wreckless partying? Inciting violence against law enforcement? Then I might agree that many players have been good at these.

    ‘Fraud’: Mainstream polls use 29% more Democrats than Republicans

    “In every poll, Democrat respondents outnumbered Republicans by significant amounts. The Economist poll was the worst. Only 24 percent of respondents (360) were Republicans compared to 38 percent (570) Democrats – which means that 58 percent more Democrats were polled than Republicans, as shown in the %D/R column. On average, in these seven widely recognized national polls, only 29 percent (409 people) of the total 1,383 polled were Republicans, while 37 percent (518) were Democrats.

You will stand, with your hand over your heart and with respect, when our country’s national anthem is being played or you will no longer be a Kansas City Chief, a coach for the Kansas City Chiefs or have any association with the Chiefs organization! I will immediately fire you, no matter who you are!

    Phil – The main protest is that white police are killing black men in incidents where they would not shoot if the suspect was white.

    That is their stated reason. I do not agree. On their hand, it is impossible for me to see the issue the way a black person sees it because I am not black.

    If a white child attacked a police officer and tried to steal the officers weapon, the yute would have been shot.

  118. Phil says:

    What “social inequality” exactly? Is there a black who can’t get a job because of his race? Can a black student not get into college because of his or hers race? Colleges go All out to let black students in. Often, their color gives them a leg up in fact. Can a black be denied a mortgage loan? Seems we went through a period a decade ago when they like others of any race could get one even if they were not qualified.

    Blacks are NOT victims of anything. They can be anything they want. Nobody is holding them back. Nobody.

    What is this “social inequality” and how is whitey holding them back? Splain it to me, Lucy.

    Seriously Bitter? For all its problems, California is am amazingly beautiful state — Yosemite, Redwoods, Big Sur, Sequoias, Channel Islands, Anza Borrego — I could go on-and-on.

    Remember too California produces 2/3 of the nation’s winter vegetables, and the majority of its lettuce, tomatoes, grapes, almonds & several other types of nuts. 20% of its dairy. And throw in fourth largest oil production in the nation as well.

    For all its craziness, it is worth a visit.

    125. “to play devil’s avocate … they are a few of the only black people in the usa who have a white audience.”

    Yes, so they are the ones who should not be doing something stupid. Why not a press conference or demonstration prior or after the game. Appearing disrespectful of the flag and national anthem trivialized their cause.

  124. Mr.Vito says:

    “I don’t pretend to know what it is like to be from the South.”

    Good to hear.

    So there are 130 scumbags in the NFL… not a surprise.

    “Here’s a breakdown at each game, as observed by AP reporters:

    – Cleveland Browns at Indianapolis Colts: About 24.

    – New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles: At least three (and three other players raising their fists).

    – Denver Broncos at Buffalo Bills: About 35, including Bills RB LeSean McCoy and about half of the Broncos’ roster.

    – Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Minnesota Vikings: At least two, including Bucs WRs Mike Evans and DeSean Jackson.

    – Houston Texans at New England Patriots: About 16.

    – Miami Dolphins at New York Jets: At least four, including Dolphins WR Kenny Stills and OT Laremy Tunsil.

    – New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers: About 12, including Saints RB Adrian Peterson.

    – Atlanta Falcons at Detroit Lions: About 10, including Lions RB Ameer Abdullah.

    – Pittsburgh Steelers at Chicago Bears: The Steelers stayed in the tunnel, although Army veteran Alejandro Villanueva stood outside the tunnel with his hand over his heart.

    – Baltimore Ravens vs. Jacksonville Jaguars in London: About 24, including Ravens LB Terrell Suggs and Jaguars RB Leonard Fournette.

    Total: 130”

  136. Bitterlaw says:

    I also do not believe in sick days. If you are sick, go to school or work. Better to be sent home than to be absent.

  137. jason says:

    Cruz will never miss an opportunity to make sure everyone knows he is a deadender.

    He was feeling unloved and out of the news.

  138. Bitterlaw says:

    Cool. 90% of NFL players are not protesting. You can all return to the games now.

  139. jason says:

    I am glad Denver and Pittsburgh, who seemed to have the most players involved in this, lost.

    I enjoyed watching the Tour Championship and the Fedex Cup Championship play out, great tournament.

    Did you see overtime has been cut to 10 minutes “for safety reasons”?

    I guess if you cut the who game down to 30 minutes it will reduce injuries further.

  146. Bitterlaw says:

    It was awesome, Jason. Unfortunately for the Broncos, your self-proclaimed “dumbest coach” is 3-0.

    Don’t worry, the fat moron will do something really stupid when it counts.

  149. Bitterlaw says:

    NFL protesters will change nothing. Fans not watching games will change nothing. Only 10% of the NFL is protesting. I doubt 10% of fans will stop watching or going to games.*

    The Broncos lost to the Bills. Maybe there is another “dumbest coach.”

    The Broncos lost to the Bills. Maybe there is another “dumbest coach.”

    Yes, I hear the Denver coach went for a fake punt in his own side of the field that failed, really dumb.

    But it will be years of stupid decisions before he gets to “dumbest”

    I love the Dallas Cowboys. May God Bless Mr. Jeremy Jones!

    Jerry Jones, Owner of the Dallas Cowboys called a meeting with all of his Coaches, Players and field staff and firmly told them, “You are all simply paid performers on a stage and that field is my stage! You will stand, with your hand over your heart and with respect, when our Country’s National Anthem is being played or you will no longer be a Dallas Cowboy, a Coach for the Dallas Cowboys or have any association with the Dallas Cowboy Organization! I will immediately fire you, no matter who you are!”

  156. jason says:

    Only 10% of the NFL is protesting. I doubt 10% of fans will stop watching or going to games.*”

    Don’t be so sure.

    Been reading the comments on a lot of the stories, and a lot of fans seemed really pissed off.

    I hope they do get hit where it hurts. I have a feeling the TV ratings and attendance are going to take more than a 10% hit. And that means less concession revenue, fewer apparel sales, etc.

    I am not a not a big boycott fan, usually I oppose them. In this case, I hope the NFL, the owners and players all suffer some consequences.

  157. jason says:

    Hey ssq, has Jerry Jones been sued for plagiarizing the KC Chiefs owner?

    no, it is a made up story

  168. Bitterlaw says:

    As for reading comments to determine how all fans feel is pretty flawed. Most of the people reading about the alleged decline of the NFL are people who want it to decline.

    I thought Jason might have known this after reading HHR last year. Based upon the comments, Hillary was going to win and very few Republicans were going to vote for Trump.

    The National Social Justice League will just have to get on without me on Sundays. I am interested in being entertained without having to watch a bunch of black lives matter dudes in shoulder pads throw a tantrum during the national antham or at any other time on the field. If I wanted to watch leftist garbage I would just tune in to Kimmel or Colbert any night of the week.

    The “league” has made it clear I and people like me are no longer valued (if I ever was). I don’t need them either. Screw em.

    Good riddence.

    “IT WASN’T WORTH IT, SAYS 103-YEAR-OLD VEGATARIAN

    “A MAN who extended his life span by avoiding processed meats bitterly regrets having done so, it has emerged.

    103-year-old Roy Hobbs never ate sausages, bacon or black pudding apart from a one-off fried breakfast which he admits was mind-bendingly delicious.

    He said: “I am over a century old, partly because I’ve exercised extreme self-control when it comes to my base desire for meat.

    “Many times I’ve been tempted. One time in Birmingham train station I actually bought a burger and raised it to my salivating mouth, but never took a bite.

    “Only once, while staying in a corporate hotel for work, did I succumb to a frantic bout of pleasure with a full breakfast buffet. I had fourteen sausages. Afterwards I lay on my bed for two and a half hours, sweaty but elated.”

    Hobbs admitted that, despite living to an impressive age, he still thinks about meat with a sense of regret: “I am old now, and frankly it is s***. But it’s too late to eat a steak because I have no teeth.

    “If I could I would appear to my younger self as an apparition and say ‘eat burgers, and meat pies too’. But in a deep ghost-y voice so that it sounded convincing.”

Result? instead of a relatively small handful of malcontents taking a knee we had 130 and we will have to watch that garbage from the same 130 or more the remainder of the season and until Trump is gone. I also assume Goodell will now give us what Michael Bennett and the radicals wanted – November being sponsored by the NFL as national social justice month or whatever the hell these black lives matter in pads are demanding. More garbage shoved down our throat by the National Social Justice League.

    Mike, it’s the usual double standard.

    The President’s free speech is inappropriate, divisive, and brings shame on himself and his institution because we say so.

    ——————-

    Oh cry me a river.

    Trump has every damn right to stand up against these privileged a$$holes. If he doesn’t, then who the hell will?

    Phil, with all due respect, if you’re not willing to stand up for your beliefs then shut the h*ll up. You have no right to criticize anyone. You’ve capitulated. You’ve already declared the leftists as winners. You’ve decided to be a coward.

    You’ve decided that it’s simply easier to surrender rather than stand up and fight back. You’ve decided it’s better to be silent and let them win the culture war rather than face their wrath for your beliefs.

    If we follow the advice of conservative inc., which is basically per-surrender because omg the left will say bad things about us and standing up against that storm is hard, then this behavior will become acceptable. And after that, they’ll eventually try to remove the anthem all together, because of how ‘divisive’ it is (which they caused). And they’ll succeed, because again, conservative inc. will say do not rock the boat. Then after that they’ll move to other sports. Then to other entertainment activities. Then to schools, businesses, and even churches.

    And then?

    And then they’ll start winning elections again. Because politics is downstream of culture. And they will own the culture because conservatives refused to stand up for their beliefs. They refused to even utter them in the media for fear of backlash. And because they were cowards, the new generations will have grown up only ever hearing the leftist point of view. Because no one ever stood up and offered them a different idea.

    So you have two choices. Either you hunker down and fight or you capitulate and surrender. We are in a culture war for the soul of our nation. One side offers individual freedom and merit based success. The other offers marxism wrapped up in identity politics/group think. If you want to win, you’re going to have to fight for it, and stand your ground even when the fighting gets tough.

    https://yearofzero.wordpress.com/2017/09/24/those-who-stand-vs-kneelers-the-culture-war-comes-to-the-nfl/
    Politics is downstream of culture, as Andrew Breitbart famously said. So called “True Conservatives™” are going to say that Trump shouldn’t be commenting on this. Because they don’t know how to fight the culture war. They are wrong. And they are scared. They not only don’t know winning. It’s been so long since these folks have won that they are afraid of the notion of winning. They are afraid to fight. THEY ARE AFRAID TO STAND…

    …Americans love to stand. They love to stand against an enemy. They love to stand for what they believe in. Taking a stand is fight, and Americans love a fight. Embrace it. And that fight — it is already here. And it looks to be a category 5 cultural storm. There will be all kinds of advice on how Trump or those who want this win this fight should avoid it from high paid political hacks and the punditry class. Back away from this, they will say! “Oh, statemanship!” They will say. “How Divisive!” they will scream.

    But to win a political war, we know the cultural war must be won, and when that storm arrives on the doorstep, the choice is limited. There is only one way to actually win, and two ways to lose. Option 1: Run, don’t fight the cultural battle — and then lose the political battle. Option 2: Lose by fighting. Or win. But to win, one has to fight. So when that storm comes to the doorstep, run, and lose. Or fight, and lose. Or fight smart, and win. The storm is here. Lean into it.

    32 teams in all – 53 man rosters

    That would be roughly 1600 total players if my math is correct.

    So around thirteen percent.

    Let’s see if that number grows in the coming weeks.

    Prediction: If the numbers of kneelers remain the same or grow beginning the next weekend the NFL will begin losing their “moral high ground” with the public. A number of fans will say enough already. They are at their peak public support as of right now.

  212. NYCmike says:

    Part of me thinks Trump should NOT have said anything, but then the other part of me asks why the heck can’t he say what he said.

    He is not sympathetic to it but says he will continue to support the NFL is what I took from his posts. Sort of in the middle I think.

    NFL like other sports is simply a business. They can run their business how they want, and people who purchase their products (buy tickets, gear, food, booze, etc) are free to continue purchasing or stop purchasing, based on whatever criteria they want–including dissatisfaction with the way the business is run.

    NASCAR is same way–most of the races now are run in front of large empty grandstands–and much of it is because of the business decisions the owners have made. Blaming the customer is silly and completely misguided. Give them a product they want at a price they can afford, and the seats would be full.

    As for a political issue, this is a gold mine for Trump. He created a situation where respecting the flag is synonymous with supporting him and where his opponents are associated with dissing it. This is a win-win for Trump no matter how you look at it.

    He glared at me, so I politely told him that I would respectfully listen to his opinion regarding the flag situation, but in regards to North Korea/Iran it is absolutely ridiculous to blame Trump for situations that go back decades in the making. Others started yelling/laughing at him for that as well, at which point he said “If I owned a restaurant, there would be a sign on the wall which said “No Politics Allowed”.

    Of course, then the veteran who opposed him from the start said “Every day I would come in, I would tape up a TRUMP sign over your sign!”.

    Supposedly from the NFL rule book pages 62-63.

    The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem.
    During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.

    “The league’s Game Operations Department uses the manual to govern the conduct of home clubs, to ensure they protect players and provide the conditions for a fair and fan-friendly contest,” reads the NFL’s website. “Clubs face warnings and other penalties for noncompliance.”

    Baseball playoffs forthcoming, and in the Spirit of the NFL, mixing sports and politics, here are the teams I am rooting for based on their locations:

    1) Arizona Diamondbacks – Pockets of Phoenix contain conservatives and Republicans, and the state overall still red.

    2) Cleveland Indians – Very liberal city in what has now become a red state.

    3) Houston Astros – Very liberal city in a strong red state. No doubt many Republicans around eastern Texas root for them.

    4) Colorado Rockies – Conservative areas in the purple state, but Denver a cesspool of liberalism and weed.

    5) Minnesota Twins – Only upper Midwest state to not go for Trump over Clinton. So hopefully no trophy for them.

    6) Los Angeles Dodgers – Deep blue city in a deep blue state, though there are at least more conservative area outside the big city.

    7) Boston Red Sox – Deep blue city in a deep blue state. Hope they go down in flames early.

    8) New York Yankees – Home of the Clintons, although there are a few areas in the metropolis where the GOP wins once in a while.

    9) Chicago Cubs – Obama’s liberal utopia where dozens are gunned down each week–nothing but deep blue districts here.

    10) Washington Nationals – Needless to say DC comes in last.

    So the best world-series matchup is the Diamondbacks vs. Indians.

    Worst: Yankees vs Nationals

    We must be hanging in the same places these days. 🙂

    I totally agree with your sentiment on the coach. He was hoping for 100% participation to support and be respectful of the team, he says.

    So I guess having a different viewpoint makes you not respectful to the team? Is that implying AV is not a team player now? What a butt wipe for the coach to imply when they just broke the league rules, and all now eligible for fines if the rules are truly applied consistently. But they won’t be because the owners, coaches, and managers are fearful of identity politics.

  293. Mr.Vito says:

    Everyone knows the NFL has been aggressively against players and teams taking stands on issues at games… no one is going to fall for this idea that they are being picked on for standing up for what they believe.

    Especially when Tomlin then singles out the one guy who really stood up for what he believed.

  294. Tgca says:

    Here’s what AV had to say last year. He gets it! Take it off the field. Most of America agrees with this and I think these players and owners will rue the day when it bites them in the butt.

    I don’t know if the most effective way is to sit down during the national anthem with a country that’s providing you freedom, providing you $16 million a year … when there are black minorities that are dying in Iraq and Afghanistan for less than $20,000 a year,” Villanueva told ESPN last year, when San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick first started kneeling.

  295. Tgca says:

    Yo Vito

    Me agrees. They just don’t get it! Fines for silly things like hopping or thrusting, or supporting a charity but ok to advocate false claims against police by blatantly violating the written rules.

    I consider these actions by the players, in the manner being done, as anti-law enforcement that helps I cite more angst against law enforcement.

    Take it off the field if you feel that strongly like everyone else has to do with their pet cause.

What annoys me is how the owners and coaches are arguing this is free speech when they damn well know it’s not the issue. If that’s the case, then people have the freedom to exercise their religious free speech, and clearly the NFL does not allow that.

    This is all about identity politics because it will look bad if a bunch of white rich guys tell mainly a bunch of rich black guys how to behave. They don’t want to have to deal with the flack.

    Again, Trump out-smarted these nitwits and the more they protest, the more support he gets from the American people. Most people who would go against Trump on this are already against him so it’s a win-win for him and a gift for the GOP if it gets out of hand.

  301. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    “Disgraced former U.S. congressman Anthony Weiner, whose exchange of illicit messages with a teen wound up playing a critical role in the 2016 presidential election, was sentenced Monday to 21 months in prison, authorities said.
    * * *
    Weiner’s defense attorneys argued for a penalty that did not include jail time. They cast the former congressman as a man with an addiction problem and asserted that the teen had reached out to him hoping to generate material for a book deal and to influence the presidential election.”

    Maybe he should have blamed the Russians. Mueller should be investigating the teenage victim.

    I’m not a football fan. So, proclaiming a mutiny from this sport has no impact. However, as a bystander to this kerfuffle I am struck by the pettiness of the NFL. In lieu of the many mandated NFL rules tgca listed, the fact that the NFL hierarchy finds the long standing tradition of standing for our flag not worthy of reprimand is troubling to me.

    Furthermore, it seems that the increasing dismissal of this country’s heritage, values, even it’s factual history, only augments our downward slide into the abyss of having no national meaning or identity.

    Basically, who and what do we, as a nation, really stand for anymore?

    I bet we’ll have a “teachable moment” soon to resolve this. Simple idea here. The owners agree to enforce rules and the players do some kind of pre-game or event to express their frustration, and Trump commends them for their Good Samaritan-like efforts. Maybe even a WH invite for some key players. Invite Obama, because he can unite us all.

    Everything goes back to normal. Most folks forgive, the owners are happy, advertisers are happy, players are not that happy but at least not ridiculed.

    Then Trump and owners can go back to their bromance. Screw the coaches though.

  308. janz says:

    #316 Hugh Hewitt described the disgruntled NFL fans as the “Budweiser” crowd. These are the normies, people not associated with coastal ideology and wealth, who are turning their backs on those who cavalierly call those who don’t join the social progressive parade racists and worse. This growing segment of the U.S. population no longer identifies with parties, but instead are responsive to sentiments of those who support their values. Trump has tapped into their concerns, listens to them and is pugnacious and “courageous” enough to bluntly express their POV.

    Furthermore, Trump makes people uncomfortable, by hitting national and international nerves. However, even though no one really knows the outcome of his disruptive dialogues, they still seem to feel it’s time someone was not afraid to take the heat from those who don’t like their comfort zones disturbed.

    Statement from big ben of the steelers

    Villanueva was an Army Ranger and did more for this country than Mike Tomlin ever will. That a privileged brat such as Tomlin feels the need to criticize a man who actually put his life on the line for this country for showing patriotism speaks volumes.

    Tomlin is an antipatriotic sonofabitch, and I hope the Steelers fire his overrated ass.

  324. janz says:

    A dangerous assumption by the NFL is that American people’s ire will eventually subside, and most will return to the NFL fold.

    However, patterns of behavior can be quickly dismantled once another one takes hold. And, in the case of football, once a once loyal fan has his attention drawn to something else that may be equally, or even more, satisfying, they will continue to stay away — less from spite, than from a cultivated disinterest.

    …be concerned NFL….

    -Please note: I disagree with Kaepernick, and agree with the statement Villanueva put out last year about the protest (I believe someone posted it earlier.). I also think Tomlin was wrong to say anything about Villanueva, although I would think that Villanueva would have told him BEFORE the anthem that he would stand outside for it.

    BUT, that statement by Wes is such overly-emotional claptrap that I find it hilarious. There are many people who DID SERVE who agree with Kaepernick……..what would Wes say to them?

    Am I NOT ALLOWED TO DISAGREE with those veterans because I did NOT serve?

    I have no idea what you’re talking about, Mikey.

    Everyone has a right to agree or disagree regardless of service. Tomlin went over the line though, and I honestly feel Tomlin deserves to be fired for personally attacking a man who works for him for taking a patriotic stance.

    The U.S. homicide rate spiked 8% in the U.S. in 2016. The rise was much higher in urban areas.

    Despite the “hope and change” rhetoric, the Obama presidency was divisive for the country, and crime and public safety concerns increased. One reason I believe things are so unsettled now is a lot of people cannot reconcile the lofty rhetoric from the worsening reality. They are beginning to realize that the Obama dream world did not exist.

    What Trump is doing, by emphasizing law and order, patriotism, respecting the flag, limiting illegal immigration, and economic reform, is too much of a needed reality check for those who happily reside in the Obama fake fantasy world to comprehend.

    Unless Jones made a statement today, the widely reported “statements” by him and the owner of the Kansas City Chiefs were fake.

  345. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    It is important to point out that football owners are corporate welfare queens. Like all such people, they have no problem trashing the flag or national anthem to kept the money coming:

    “The NFL is the most profitable pro sports league in the U.S., raking in an estimated $1 billion in profits on $10.5 billion in revenue last season, figures that are sure to increase this year.
    Those massive profits are made possible in part by the billions of taxpayer dollars that local governments spend on teams, coupled with tax breaks worth hundreds of millions for the teams, the league, their sponsors and fans.
    “I’ve been studying this for 15 years, and I still can not believe cities and states are lined up begging to give money to these very profitable [teams],” said Villanova professor Rick Eckstein, an expert on stadium finance.
    Here’s a rundown:
    Stadium construction: Twenty new NFL stadiums have opened since 1997 with the help of $4.7 billion in taxpayer funds, according to an analysis by the advisory firm Conventions, Sports and Leisure. Local governments pony up to build these venues to attract or keep teams in their towns.
    Two more stadiums now under construction in Minneapolis and Atlanta are being built with $700 million in government funds.
    Taxpayers paid for most of the University of Phoenix Stadium, which opened in 2006 and is home to this Sunday’s Super Bowl — to the tune of about $300 million.
    Teams even get tax breaks on the money they actually do spend on construction. Most of that spending is financed with tax free municipal bonds, which were originally created by Congress to help fund roads and schools.”

    This is a classic example of biting the hand that feeds you.

  346. Mr.Vito says:

    Jones made his feelings known before the season…

    “I just feel so strongly that the act of recognizing the flag is a salute to our country and all of the people that have sacrificed so that we can have the liberties we have,” Jones said. “I feel very strongly that everyone should save that moment for the recognition of the flag in a positive way, so I like the way the Cowboys do it.” Jones produced a similar sentiment Sunday on Fox Business’s ‘Mornings with Maria.’ “I do not think the place to express yourself in society is as we recognize the American flag and all the people that have made this great country—the very opportunity for us to be there in front of the nation,” Jones said. “So that’s not the place to do anything but honor the flag and everybody that’s given up a little for it.”

    What exactly is Tomlin alleged to have said about Villanueva?

  350. Waingro says:

    #366:

    “Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin appeared to take a swipe at the Bronze Star recipient’s decision in a post-game press conference. Tomlin told the media that, prior to kickoff Sunday, the Steelers held a team meeting and decided, though not unanimously, to not come out of the locker room for the national anthem.

    “Like I said, I was looking for 100 percent participation, we were gonna be respectful of our football team,” Tomlin said when asked about Villanueva ignoring the order and coming out for the anthem.”

    http://www.foxnews.com/sports/2017/09/25/nfl-national-anthem-flap-sees-steelers-coach-mike-tomlin-rap-alejandro-villanueva-while-his-jersey-sales-soar.html

    The federal gubment needs to cut spending on ads.

  352. CG says:

    That sounds ambiguous to me. Since Villanueva was not on the sidelines, as usual, for the anthem, he might have been including him as part of the 100 percent.

    If he singles him out by name or says anything else in the future, it would be more clear, but I think people are just searching high and low for something to be offended at.

    Tomlin should have been shellshocked by losing to the Bears.

  353. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    362. One of the reasons the Chargers football team left San Diego was the city refused to build them a new stadium. A ballot measure to do so in 2016 failed by a vote of 43%-57%.

    The Chargers moved to Los Angeles, and frankly believe the vast majority of San Diego could care less. We got tired of their constant demand for more taxpayer money, and questions their back room activities.

  354. lisab says:

    the players that kneel are pissing people off because they want others, particularly white americans, to be angry the same way they are angry over the inequalities blacks face on a daily basis.

    except that the people they are pissing off are in general NOT the ones who are oppressing black people. they are, as was mentioned above, the “budweiser crowd”.

    they are pissing off people who work for a living, NOT the people who decided to outsource all the factory jobs in Detroit. people who work for a living are not that sympathetic to millionaires disrespecting the country.

    how many of the teams in the nfl, nba, mlb and nhl are minority owned?

    367. “Like I said, I was looking for 100 percent participation, we were gonna be respectful of our football team.”

    So in the name of protecting football player free speech, he wanted to prevent a football player from exercising his free speech. He was also upset that the football player was following NFL policy of what to do when the national anthem was played.

    This is all going to blow up in the face of the NFL.

  359. CG says:

    It does not seem like Tomlin was clearly saying that. If he wants to say it that way people are interpreting it, he might in the future.

    The Steelers (and Titans and Seahawks) looked bad for their tactic. Villanueva looked good (and good for him), the quote attributed online to the owners of the Chiefs and Cowboys have been shown to be made up (the specific quote)and if people are done with the NFL, then be done with it. It’s sure getting a lot of discussion today.

  360. Tina says:

    They started with the lie -hands up dont shoot, then full blm, then take a knee.

    Of course having a sorry team and sorrier owners, the tork terriers, did not help. They fired a competent coach and replaced him with an idiot. They leave sf.

    They built a stadium that is so hot on half the stadium, fan leaves

  361. CG says:

    It does not appear that anything is being done as “punishment” to Villanueva or that he has received anything but support from his teammates.

    Tomlin’s quote, when he was clearly just trying to change the subject, after being humiliated by the lowly Bears, was ambiguous as best. We will see what the Steelers do in their next game. I bet they will be out there on the sidelines, standing, with their arms locked.

    361. “Unless Jones made a statement today, the widely reported “statements” by him and the owner of the Kansas City Chiefs were fake.”

    Actually believe it would be correct to say that if Jones did not actually make the “statements”, then they are false. Whether he makes a statement today does not prove anything.

  366. CG says:

    There will be Cowboys and Cardinals players who will “protest” tonight and nobody will be getting fired by Jerry Jones for doing so.

    I hope they do the right thing and protest Trump while standing up and showing respect to the country. Even he says, the arm in arm thing is good.

  367. Tina says:

    It is because the cowboys players stand, bl. See their rbs comments. Theynstand willingly that his comments, or non comments, are accepted.

But after five years (and there are a whopping 36 races per year), she has ZERO wins, ZERO top-five finishes, and only 7 top ten finishes. An epic failure.

  373. NYCmike says:

    Trump is in the right – the anthem and the flag should be honored.

Those teams and drivers never get anywhere close to winning races.

    NOW, in regards to Villaneuva saying he is “embarrassed”, I predict this will make the backlash on the NFL even worse. Somehow, a man who served can stand for the anthem and it is an issue, but a man like Kaepernick NOT STANDING can’t be criticized, or else there will be protests.

    Cold Anger:

    There’s a level of anger far deeper and more consequential than expressed rage or visible behavior. Cold Anger does not need to go to violence. For those who carry it, no conversation is needed. You cannot poll or measure it; and even those who carry it avoid discussion. And that decision has nothing whatsoever to do with any form of correctness.

    Cold Anger is not hatred, it is far more purposeful.

    Cold Anger absorbs betrayal silently, often prudently.

    We’ve watched the shooting of cops, and the parades which follow, absorbing. Cold Anger takes notice of the liars, even from a great distance – seemingly invisible to the mob. Cold Anger will still hold open the door for the parade goer. Mannerly.

    Cold Anger evidenced is more severe because it is more strategic.

    Cold Anger does not gloat; it absorbs consistent vilification and ridicule as fuel. This sensibility does not want to exist, it is forced to exist in otherwise unwilling hosts – who also refuse to be destabilized by it.

    Deliberate intent and prudence will insure avoiding failure. The course, is thoughtful vigilance; a strategy devoid of emotion.

    Foolishness and betrayal of our nation have served to reveal dangers within our present condition. Misplaced corrective action, regardless of intent, is neither safe nor wise.

    Cold Anger is not driven to act in spite of itself; it drives a reckoning.

    When the well attired lady leaves the checkout line carrying steaks and shrimp using an EBT card, the door is still held open for her; yet notations necessarily embed.

    When the U.S. flag lay gleefully undefended, they do not lay unnoticed.

    So you’re upset that Trump made the players look like idiots and unpatriotic which is what they look like when protesting the same American flag and anthem that by symbolic nature allows them to prosper to the stature they have achieved?

    Again, folks are not against them taking a stand and exercising free speech but rather against the symbol and time and place of the protest.

    These are clueless privileged, ignorant men that have no regard for law enforcement because the MSM invites them with major exaggerated instances that are NOT the norm no matter how much they protest it is. Clearly, this was not well though through and now the heat is on them.

  428. Tina says:

    Villanueva, an Army Ranger who was deployed in Afghanistan, said he asked quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and the rest of the team’s leaders to amend their original idea, agreed upon after a Saturday night team meeting, which was to stand in the locker room during the anthem in an attempted show of unity. Part of the reason Villanueva pushed for change: he’d received texts from wounded veterans asking him to stand for the anthem.

    Villanueva’s suggestion, he said, was to stand with Roethlisberger and the team’s other captains at the front of the tunnel. That didn’t work out due to, as Roethlisberger said, pregame “chaos” in a small area, and Villanueva was left to stand alone with his teammates about 20 feet behind him.

    Now if only we had a political party to take advantage of this…

  431. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    449. What a PR snow job nightmare.

    Villanueva was not at fault for standing alone. The plan was the whole team would be standing with him, including the captains. It was just a big boo boo.

    According to Villanueva:

    ““They’re getting negative feedback because they didn’t stand up for the national anthem when in reality, they would’ve done it. They were fighting to stand up for the national anthem.”

    “When everybody sees an image of me standing by myself, everybody thinks that the team and Steelers are not behind me, and that’s absolutely wrong. It’s quite the opposite. Actually, the entire team would’ve been out there with me, even the ones that wanted to take a knee.”

    Its nice Villanueva agreed to take one for the team, but no one is going to believe it.

  432. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    454. If the team had agreed to stand with Villanueva, then why was his coach angry he had gone rogue by doing it? He should be blaming who was responsible for the screw up.

    This is vintage Trump from the presidential primaries. His well-aimed tweets have created chaos for the Democrats. He did not go to Alabama and just spontaneously babble this out, it was planned.

    The leftist press does not understand the importance of the national anthem and flag to the American people, and so once again become dutiful fool tools of Trump.

  436. Tgca says:

    Tina

    Maybe I’m a bit cynical but I don’t buy this revisionist history in total. Here’s why:

    1. Big Ben already came out and said he lost sleep and feels bad about what happened. Why not just say from the start it was a total misunderstanding and explain their agreed upon strategy that got botched?

    2. The coach clearly took a pot shot at AV for being out there. Why not just say from the start it was a complete misunderstanding and explain the agreed upon strategy got botched?

    3. AV was not just at the edge of the tunnel; he was quite a distance from it so that seems odd that he got pushed out that far and others got pushed that far inside the tunnel and it was too late.

    4. AV now seems to support Colin’s position but not last year when felt it was misplaced. Look at what he us reportedly saying now and then.

    Seems like he is feeling embarrassed that he made them look like idiots by his respectful actions. I get you don’t want to embarrass your team but the flag and anthem deserve so much more respect then their oversized egos.

  437. Mr.Vito says:

    “They’re getting negative feedback because they didn’t stand up for the national anthem when in reality, they would’ve done it.”

    The antecedent for “they” here is “…somebody who really wants to go out there and stand for the national anthem…” not the entire team.

    “The plan was the whole team would be standing with him…”

    That was not the plan… “standing with him” here means “standing up for him”… not literally standing.

    “…everybody thinks that the team and Steelers are not behind me…”

    “behind me” means supporting him here… not literally standing behind him… only the captains were with him literally in the tunnel according to his story

  438. JC says:

    “When everybody sees an image of me standing by myself, everybody thinks that the team and Steelers are not behind me, and that’s absolutely wrong. It’s quite the opposite. Actually, the entire team would’ve been out there with me, even the ones that wanted to take a knee.”

    This is Ben’s reported statement per Drudge article link.

    “I personally don’t believe the Anthem is ever the time to make any type of protest,” the Super Bowl-winning QB says.
    Ben Roethlisberger on Monday afternoon released a statement saying he regretted his Pittsburgh Steelers boycotting the national anthem on Sunday.

    The NFL team was the first of three to not come out for the pregame ritual.

    “I was unable to sleep last night and want to share my thoughts and feelings on our team’s decision to remain in the tunnel for the National Anthem yesterday,” the Super Bowl-winning QB said in a statement. “The idea was to be unified as a team when so much attention is paid to things dividing our country, but I wish we approached it differently. We did not want to appear divided on the sideline with some standing and some kneeling or sitting.

    He continued, “As a team, it was not a protest of the flag or the Anthem. I personally don’t believe the Anthem is ever the time to make any type of protest. For me, and many others on my team and around the league, it is a tribute to those who commit to serve and protect our country, current and past, especially the ones that made the ultimate sacrifice.”

    And no,doubt cya going on too.

    “I was unable to sleep last night and want to share my thoughts and feelings on our team’s decision to remain in the tunnel for the National Anthem yesterday,…”

    You can clearly see them in the tunnel… Ben’s statement makes more sense.

  454. Tgca says:

    Does not appear from Big Bens statement that it was the mix-up they’re spinning now. He says to be unified as a team to stay in the tunnel.

    So what you’re saying is you would be embarrassed to stand in front of a crowd to salute the US flag and participate in the US anthem so as to not hurt anyone’s feelings but you personally believe using the flag and anthem to make a statement is wrong. Ok. which is it? Team unity over patriotism or patriotism over team unity?

  455. Tina says:

    We need an special prosecutor, maybe mueller to investigate this,

    He actually cleared the nfl,commissioner once already.

  456. Tgca says:

    Pun intended but I think this is simply Monday morning quarterbacking.

    They are playing on words.

    So Big Ben stands with his teammates regardless of their views on law enforcement which are grossly inaccurate and incites hate against police. I got it Ben! Law enforcement is bad so it’s ok to take it out on the flag and anthem but otherwise, no one should ever use it as a tool to express their feelings. It’s just ok with rich, spoiled, sportsdudes.

  457. Mr.Vito says:

    I see they are sporting the patch of Obama supporter Dan Rooney while skipping out on the anthem.

    “In this picture I see Steelers actually in the tunnel, and no one blocked from reaching Villanueva.”

    I am even more angry after watching this picture. The team is cowardly-like hiding away in the tunnel. This deprived the players who am sure would have liked to stand and respect the flag and anthem the right to do so.

    Do not for a minute believe there was any mix up, everyone seems sure of their places. Villanueva probably stepped forward in the open to respect the flag and anthem of the country he fought for. His picture was taken. Now he is being forced to tell stories. This totally repulsive.

    It should please everyone. They stood and showed respect for the anthem, as they should.

    Their brief demonstration, including the owner, took place first. Since it did not interrupt or distract from the anthem in any way, it seems like a non-issue, unless this anthem thing is just being used as a cover, by those who do not want to see any anti-Trump sentiment expressed.

    I bet a variation of what the Cowboys did will spread to every team.

  483. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    The Republican governor of Illinois is a part owner of the Steelers. He is trying to politically posture, and at this point it ain’t gong to work.

    “Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner says he “strongly disagrees” with NFL players protesting during the national anthem.
    The Republican, a former businessman, is part owner of the Pittsburgh Steelers. During Sunday’s game in Chicago, all but one of the Steelers stayed in the locker room during the anthem in protest of President Donald Trump’s criticism of NFL players.
    Rauner says in a Monday statement that the protesters are “disrespecting” the country’s foundations and veterans. He says he “cannot and will not condone such behavior.” He adds that players have the freedom of expression and can “choose to be disrespectful.””

  484. CG says:

Even Tom Brady and even Jay Cutler, who bragged after the election that he was a Trump supporter for a “long time.” With all that NFL unity, they could probably get a new collective bargaining agreement done.

  504. CG says:

    And that imbecile Kaepernick, will probably be on an NFL roster within 3 weeks now, solely because of Trump.

  505. Phil says:

    So where has all this political stuff from the NFL gotten us?

    Oh yeah. I know. It will now be a competition to see how creative teams can be each Sunday to devise ways to straddle the middle and say nothing either way. Well, I guess that’s one way to try and get out of the mess the NFL has created for itself.

    Real productive. Teams can now hire choreographers to put together the best waste of time pc routines before each game.

    You couldn’t make this sh*t up if you tried.

  506. CG says:

    Finally, I believe the Steelers will regret their method of protest and how it backfired.

    Trump will be proven to be correct again.

    Anything else that occurs regarding Kaepernick or any other player will be a business decision, as it should be.

    If it is NOT based on business, who cares, as it is someone else’s money and they can do what they want with it.

  575. SanDiegoCitizen says:

    People can say anything they want, but Jerry Jones handled the situation effectively in Dallas. His goal:

    “The objectives as much as anything else,” he said, “were to somehow, some way demonstrate unity and demonstrate equality and do so without involving, in any way, the national anthem.”

    Jerry Jones took the lead on doing it, being with his team and taking the booing.

    “A day after most of the N.F.L. engaged in at least some form of demonstration during the national anthem, the Dallas Cowboys, along with the team’s owner, Jerry Jones, linked arms on the University of Phoenix Stadium field Monday night and collectively took a knee before the anthem was played.
    The Arizona Cardinals, the Cowboys’ opponent, linked arms in the end zone with some military personnel, and by the time the pop star Jordin Sparks had begun singing the anthem, Mr. Jones and his team’s players had moved to the sideline and were standing with linked arms. The crowd, which had booed as the Cowboys were kneeling, let out some loud cheers at various points during the song.”

    “Mr. Jones addressed the news media after the game, saying he had never been more proud of his organization. He said he believed the demonstration was not a departure from his previous comments in which he had said he would not tolerate players protesting during the anthem, and that the team was unified in that regard.
    “It was real easy for everyone in our organization to see that the message of unity or equality was being pushed aside or diminished by the controversy,” he said.
    Mr. Jones declined to comment directly on President Trump’s recent comments about the N.F.L., saying, “I made my mind up on this issue that I wasn’t going to comment other than I’m very proud of the fact that the Dallas Cowboys and our players have always stood for the flag and the recognition for the flag always.”

    Compare this with the Pirates debacle, where they attempted to hide the team until after the national anthem was played, and ended up humiliating a team member who was a veteran and indirectly the whole team.

    All the owners in Pirates owners should be held responsible for this, including the clown governor of Illinois — lets see some leadership from him on the issue. Saying he “strongly disagrees” with the anthem protests is not enough.

  576. JC says:

    The bastards are now trying to sue for peace.

    F**k them. They don’t get to wave the peace flag and ask for “unity” now that they are losing badly. They sure as hell never stop after we give in to yet another one of their rediculous causes.

    They started this war. Not us. They were more than happy to launch their never ending political arpatheid againt us back when we followed ‘Conservative Inc’ advice and remained silent.

    They went after our jobs when we stated opinions they didn’t like. They shamed us in public for daring to go against their group think. They blocked us from speaking with threats of violence. They weaseled their way into our entertainment and pushed their unwanted agenda on us when we were just trying to escape. They infiltrated our government and educational institutions and turned them against us.

    Well, we are no longer playing the feckless “above the fray” opponents while they spit on us and strip away our rights and treat us like second class citizens. And now that we are fighting back, and throwing their own tactics back in their faces, they start crying and raging about how unfair life is.

    F**k them. They asked for this. We’re not going to pull our punches anymore. Or as our FLOTUS said of Trump; You hit us, we hit back 10 times harder.

  577. Mr.Vito says:

    Headlines everywhere are that Dallas took a knee… I really don’t think a lot of people will care much about the intricacies… They see the NFL coddling or even honoring cop-haters like Kaepernick, and supporting those that do kneel during the anthem.

    Sounds like Arizona played it smarter if they linked arms with law enforcement like I thought I read.

    @644 Phil you say a lot of stupid things too. 🙂

  619. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Here is the most important economic issue for Doug Jones:
    A Living Wage

    People in Alabama should not have to work two or three jobs just to provide food, housing and other necessities for their families, often foregoing healthcare and other needs. I strongly support ensuring working Alabamians receive a living wage for their hard work. It is past time. They are then less reliant on the government and those dollars help lift the economy.

    Equal Pay for Equal Work
    Today’s champion for equal pay is Lilly Ledbetter and her battle for equality in Gadsden, Alabama. In the Senate, I will work to extend the spirit of the Lilly Ledbetter Fair Pay Act to make it mandatory that two people, doing the same job with the same qualifications, are paid equally – regardless of their gender.

  620. DW says:

    648 – that one must have slipped through. Up to now the Dem leadership had been holding them together to stay out of it.

  621. DW says:

    “Black Congresswoman kneels on House floor.”

    And I don’t even have to look up the name and district to know this must be someone from a 91% Dem voting district.

  622. Sheeple, Jr. says:

    Doug Jones on ObamaCare:
    I believe:

    Health care is a right, not a privilege limited to the wealthy and those with jobs that provide coverage.
    Coverage must meet basic standards that protect individuals. Nobody should have to sell their house because a family member has cancer. A “cheap” plan that won’t cover preventative care, serious illness, pharmaceutical coverage, mental health, maternity care, birth control or other care for women is a sham. So is a policy that nobody can afford.
    No woman should be denied coverage of services based on the religious beliefs of her employer.
    We must ensure that quality health care is available not only in our cities, but in rural areas as well. As pointed out recently by U.S. Rep. Terri Sewell, “Alabama’s rural hospitals have been struggling for years, largely due to inadequate reimbursements, low volume and high operating costs.” Since 2010, five rural hospitals have closed in Alabama, leaving residents without local care. As Rep. Sewell notes, “We need more robust Medicaid funding in Alabama if our rural hospitals are to survive.”

    Stephen Bannon – Former chief strategist to the President and Executive Chairman of Breitbart News

    Bannon will campaign in Alabama on Monday evening in support of Judge Roy Moore, Axios first reported.

    A source close to Bannon told the outlet: “Steve is coming to Alabama to support President Trump against the Washington establishment and Mitch McConnell. Steve views Judge Moore as a fierce advocate of Trump and the values he campaigned on.”

    Mo Brooks – Primary candidate and Representative for Alabama’s 5th congressional district

    Despite receiving a string of endorsements from members of the populist movement, Brooks finished in third place during the Republican primary. After his defeat, he endorsed Roy Moore.

    “The Senate race comes down to this: We are in an epic battle between the people of Alabama who put America first and the Washington swamp that hopes to buy Alabama’s Senate seat and put America second,” Brooks said. “All of America is watching Alabama to see who wins. I can’t speak for anyone else, but, as for me, I stand with America. I have voted for Roy Moore because Roy Moore not only stands with America, he will fight for America. I urge you to join that fight.”

    Rep. Mark Meadows – U.S. Congressman from North Carolina, Chairman of House Freedom Caucus

    “I am proud to endorse Judge Roy Moore for the U.S. Senate. The people of Alabama are seeing millions of dollars in false advertising flow into their state,” Meadows told Politico. “From what I know about the people of Alabama, their vote is NOT for sale. They want a strong man — a principled conservative — to send a clear message to Washington, D.C.”

    Rep. Jim Jordan – U.S. Congressman from Ohio and Co-Founder of House Freedom Caucus

    “Roy Moore will be a much-needed conservative voice in the Senate,” Jordan said in a press release. “I know the voters of Alabama can count on him to adhere to the Constitution and always stand for the values and principles that made this nation great, and I am proud to give him my endorsement and support.”

    Rep. Thomas Massie – U.S. Congressman from Kentucky

    “Roy Moore has more political spine than anyone I know,” Massie said in a press release. “He has twice chosen to lose his job rather than compromise his principles. He is a man willing to stand up to the out of control courts and help us return to the limited government outlined in our Constitution. I give him my full support and look forward to having him as a stalwart colleague in the Senate.”

    Rep. Steve King – U.S Congressman from Iowa

    “Whether it’s defending the Ten Commandments, preserving the sanctity of traditional marriage, or fighting against entrenched political corruption in Montgomery and Washington, Roy Moore can be counted on to fight to advance our shared conservative values,” King wrote in a statement.”There is no stronger, more principled Constitutional Christian conservative than Judge Moore. I endorse Roy Moore for the United States Senate, and I look forward to working with him to advance pro-life and pro-second amendment causes.”

    Rep. Louie Gohmert – U.S. Congressman from Texas and former judge

    “This is an incredibly important election,” told Breitbart News in an exclusive interview. “This is going to be the decision as to whether Alabama is represented or Mitch McConnell is represented… but what we know is that Roy Moore has shown over and over that you may disagree with him but he does what he says.”

    Rep. Jody Hice – U.S. Congressman from Georgia

    “I am proud to support Judge Roy Moore for US Senate,” Hice said in a press release. “My fellow members of the House Freedom Caucus and I need allies in the Senate. Judge Moore would be such an ally. Judge Moore has shown he has the strength to stand for principle, regardless of personal cost. Men like that are rare, and much needed in Washington.”

    Dr. Ben Carson – United States Secretary of Housing and Urban Development

    “Judge Moore is a fine man of proven character and integrity, who I have come to respect over the years,” Carson wrote in a statement. “I was delighted to hear he is running for the US Senate. He is truly someone who reflects the Judeo-Christian values that were so important to the establishment of our country. It is these values that we must return to in order to make America great again. I wish him well and hope everyone will make sure they vote on Tuesday.”

    Tom Coburn – Former U.S. Senator from Oklahoma

    “Men with a backbone of steel are hard to find these days, and even harder to find in the U.S. Senate,” Coburn wrote in a statement. “I proudly endorse Judge Moore because we need him to be a conservative voice in the Senate. He is a man who can’t be bought, who won’t fall in line with the Washington establishment and who will stand up for what he believes in.”

    Jim DeMint – Former U.S. Senator from South Carolina

    “Judge Moore has proven he has the courage and the commitment to stand up to the Washington establishment and help President Trump implement a positive agenda,” DeMint wrote. “That’s why the Kings of the Washington Swamp are working so hard to keep Judge Moore from becoming the next U.S. Senator from Alabama, and why conservatives are supporting him.”

    Sarah Palin – Former Governor of Alaska and 2008 GOP Vice Presidential Nominee

    “Glad he’s running and am honored to endorse Judge Roy Moore for the US Senate,” Palin said in her endorsement statement. “Judge Moore has shown he has what it takes to stand up to the out-of-touch political establishment. The Judge has proven he’s not afraid of a fight for what is right, and he’s ready to take on DC’s swamp monsters and help make America great again. We need more bold leaders like Judge Moore who will fight for all of us in the US Senate.”

    Mike Huckabee – Former Governor of Arkansas

    “My support of Roy Moore has nothing to do with specific displeasure with the appointed Senator Luther Strange, but because if the “power brokers” in DC are as desperate as they seem to be to keep Judge Moore from joining them, then they must fear that he can’t be counted on to “join the club,” Huckabee wrote on his website.

    “And that is a good reason to support Judge Moore and hope that it sends a message to the do-nothing Congress that ought to be standing with our President to reform healthcare, taxes, infrastructure, national security, and job-killing regulation,” he continued.” Imagine the progress we’d have if members of Congress were as dedicated to helping the President’s plans for the economy as they are in going on TV to complain about a tweet he sent out,” Huckabee wrote on his website.

    Fob James – Former Governor of Alabama

    “Roy Moore will make the right, tough decisions, no matter the political consequences. And President Trump badly needs this type of support in the U.S. Senate now,” James said.

    Bill Armistead – Former Chairman of the Alabama Republican Party and former State Senator

    “Judge Moore has stood up for conservative values his whole career, often in the face of so-called, bi-partisan adversaries, and this campaign will be no different,” Armistead said, having also been appointed Moore’s campaign director. “The Washington establishment has made it clear that they want to hand-pick the next Senator from Alabama, but I have every confidence that voters in Alabama will stand with Judge Roy Moore on August 15th and send a proven fighter and tested outsider to Washington to shake up the status quo and support President Donald Trump in draining the swamp.”

    Alabama Patriots – Statewide Tea Party Organization

    “In these trying times, we believe GOD has provided men of honor and integrity to stand in the gap for our beloved Alabama and our Christian nation. Judge Roy Moore is the man to replace our friend and fellow Patriot Jeff Sessions as the next United States Senator from Alabama,” the group said in a statement. “Judge Roy Moore is the only candidate in the race with a proven record of conservative leadership who is renowned for standing up against special interests and the Washington insiders and special interest groups that constitute Washington’s ‘Swamp.”

    Women for Trump – Political Action Committee

    “Judge Roy Moore is a principled and courageous conservative with strong grassroots support throughout the state of Alabama and we are proud to endorse him for Senate,” the group wrote in a statement. “At a time when Mitch McConnell and the DC swamp have been obstructionists to the President’s agenda, this election is about who is going to stand up to Mitch McConnell. There is only one candidate who will do that, Judge Roy Moore.”

    Ann Coulter – Author, Columnist, and Political Commentator

    Having originally supported Mo Brooks, Coulter switched her support to Moore, describing Trump’s decision to endorse Luther Strange as “completely idiotic.”

    “I love him, but that was completely idiotic,” Coulter told Breitbart News. “What has Trump gotten from McConnell?” she continued. “But he’s still sucking up to establishment Republicans.”

    Sean Hannity – Fox News Host and Host of “The Sean Hannity Show”

    “I definitely go for the biggest underdog possible sometimes to make a point,” Hannity said on his radio show. “I think I’m going to do that in Alabama because I think Judge Moore is not going to be somebody who is going to bend to Mitch McConnell and the leadership.”

    Mark Levin – Host of “The Mark Levin Show” and Editor-in-Chief of Conservative Review

    Initially a supporter of Mo Brooks, Levin switched his endorsement to Moore in the run-off. Discussing President Donald Trump’s decision to endorse Luther Strange, Levin accused Trump of stabbing “every conservative in this country” in the back.

    “Now, I have to say, the president of the United States did something yesterday that was a stab the back to every conservative in this country,” Levin said. “His candidate in Alabama is Luther Strange,” he added. “Luther Strange is in Mitch McConnell’s back pocket. The man has been there six months. He’s a crony. He can’t fill Jeff Sessions’ shoes. He’s terrible. — even has some ethical issues swirling around him. But it doesn’t matter to McConnell, just like Thad Cochran in Mississippi.”

    Laura Ingraham – Fox News Contributor and Host of “The Laura Ingraham Show”

    Ingraham was also a supporter of Mo Brooks, but also switched her allegiance to Moore for the primary run-off. Speaking of Donald Trump’s decision to endorse Luther Strange, Ingraham described it as “weird.”

    “Donald Trump came out and endorsed the incumbent, more of an establishment guy, Luther Strange,” she said. “That is very interesting because that is Mitch McConnell’s favorite pick. So Mo Brooks, who a bunch of us endorsed on the other side of that – weird.”

    Daniel Horowitz – Editor of Conservative Review

    “Now, in Roy Moore, we have a champion for our cause at this critical juncture in history. Remember, a senator, particularly in this era, is not just a vote but a voice,” Horowitz wrote in Conservative Review. “I support Roy Moore because we need an originalist in the Senate who understands the power of the non-judicial branches over constitutional interpretation… Most importantly, Moore represents what so many people are starving for — authenticity.”

    Phil Robertson – Star of A&E’s ‘Duck Dynasty’

    “I have been an admirer for some time of Judge Roy Moore,” Robertson said in a statement. “He judged with a good understanding of the Constitution and the law, but he also understands natural law and who gave us our rights to begin with, Almighty God. Roy Moore will stand up for truth and what’s right, no matter who opposes him, and that is sorely needed in Washington DC. I fully endorse his run for the Senate and pray for him and his family.”

    Chuck Norris – Actor and Martial Artist, Star of “Walker, Texas Ranger”

    “Judge Roy Moore is the real deal: He’s tough, tested, and has a spine of steel,” Norris said. “The Washington establishment knows they won’t be able to count on him, but Alabama voters can,” Mr. Norris said. “Judge Moore has never backed down from standing for what is right, and that’s exactly what he’ll do in the U.S Senate. That’s why the Washington establishment is spending millions trying to defeat him.”

    Nigel Farage – Former leader of UKIP and architect of Brexit

    Nigel Farage has announced that he will speak in support of the candidate Monday evening at a rally in Fairhope, Alabama, and also confirmed to Breitbart London that he was keen to help the President achieve his goals, and that his appearance at the rally was about helping to cement the victories over the political establishment that the President and his base won in 2016.

  628. Waingro says:

    Doug Jones is a liberal. No if, and or buts. Therefore, if I had a vote in the Alabama GE, I would hold my nose and vote for Moore.

    Then I would hold my breath and see how long before he embarrasses himself and the people that voted for him.

    My guess is it won’t take long. He just brandished a gun at his supporters yesterday for crying out loud! The guy is the definition of a loose cannon.

    Senator ROY MOORE

    Mo Brooks

    The Alabama Republican congressman won 20 percent of the vote in the first round of the Republican primary. And earlier this month, he threw his support behind Moore.

    Brooks has said he backed Moore in an effort to stand up to “the Washington Swamp.” The impulse is understandable, as Brooks bore the brunt of the attacks from groups loyal to Mitch McConnell in the early days of the primary. Now he’s returning the favor: “The Strange/ McConnell forces care not one twit about truth,” Brooks told Politico earlier this month, “They freely use malicious lies in their non-stop, scorched earth, campaign of personal destruction.”

    Sarah Palin

    “Glad he’s running and am honored to endorse Judge Roy Moore for the U.S. Senate,” the former GOP vice presidential candidate told Breitbart News in August. “Judge Moore has shown he has what it takes to stand up to the out-of-touch political establishment. The Judge has proven he’s not afraid of a fight for what is right, and he’s ready to take on DC’s swamp monsters and help make America great again.

    Sebastian Gorka

    The former Trump White House aide is co-headlining a rally for Moore on Thursday night. “Donald Trump was the quintessential anti-establishment candidate,” Gorka told Breitbart earlier this week. “The right- and left-wing elite are trying to undermine the people’s choice for president. We will work with any American who has had enough of the Swamp’s ‘business as usual’ attitude and their elitist policies.”

    Mike Huckabee

    The former Arkansas governor and two-time GOP presidential hopeful threw his support behind Moore in early September. “Luther Strange is probably a fine man, and I hear that from those who know him,” Huckabee, the father of White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, said on his website. “My support of Roy Moore has nothing to do with specific displeasure with the appointed Senator Luther Strange, but because if the ‘power brokers’ in D.C. are as desperate as they seem to be to keep Judge Moore from joining them, then they must fear that he can’t be counted on to “join the club.”

    Ann Coulter

    The firebrand conservative author called Mr. Trump’s endorsement of Strange “idiotic” back in August and originally endorsed Mo Brooks. According to Roy Moore’s website, she has since endorsed him.

    Laura Ingraham

    Ingraham, an influential conservative talk radio host and Trump backer, endorsed Mo Brooks before switching to Moore.

    Sean Hannity

    “I definitely go for the biggest underdog possible sometimes to make a point,” the Fox News host, who originally endorsed Mo Brooks, said in early September. “I think I’m going to do that in Alabama because I think Judge Moore is not going to be somebody who is going to bend to Mitch McConnell and the leadership.”

    Chuck Norris

    “Judge Roy Moore is the real deal,” the “Walker, Texas Ranger” star said in a August statement. “He’s tough, tested, and has a spine of steel.

    Tony Perkins

    The Family Research Council founder endorsed Moore earlier this month. “Over the years Judge Moore has proven he is willing to stand up for our Constitution and fight for the rights of the people,” Perkins said, according to a statement released by Moore’s campaign.

  630. Waingro says:

    “That being said, there were some on HHR that were just about guaranteeing that Moore would lose the general election.”

    Let me guess: one of those predicting that “DOOM!!” rhymes with Sobbie?

    Waingro,

    I was thinking more about the “genius” who is the Wilt Chamberlain of HHR.

  637. Waingro says:

    #663, that has to be the first time Hannity has EVER disagreed with Trump on anything. He must have gotten clearance first from his master.

  638. MichiganGuy says:

    I know most of you in here support the establishment. Well, you all are in for a rude awakening these next couple of years! 🙂

  639. Waingro says:

    #670, ah, got ya.

  640. Waingro says:

    #672, I think it’s safe to say “the establishment” already got that rude awakening in June of 2015.

  641. MichiganGuy says:

    Waingro, that was just the beginning. If, Roy Moore wins which I believe he will there will be a lot of congressmen being primaried in next year!
