    Default NO MORE NFL



    NO MORE NFL

    NO MORE NFL
    RANT!!

    I am all for Freedom of Speech, but when you are at work youneed to act in a professional way. When the players of the NFL walk into thebuilding/stadium they are at work. If they cannot be professional and respect their fans, their teams and their country, then maybe they need to find work elsewhere.
    To many great Americas have fought and paid the ultimate price for our flag to be disrespected by pompous, self serving men that play agame for a living.

    They are a disgrace to our country & it is beyond irritating. I am a big fan of football, but that shit is ridiculous. They can get the hell out of America & it would be nice to see the veterans of the military be the ones to escort them out!

    Love that idea hahahaha.

    I have seen them kneel even while military veterans were there at the beginnning of the game holding the american flag across the field, while the soldiers saluted the flag, the players kneeled and turned their back to the flag draped across the field.

    So yes during a nationally televised game, I would love the see this play out, soldiers salute during anthem, player kneeling, owner call down the to the field to have soldiers fold the flag, salute the crowd, walk over to the player, grab him up and escort his bitch ass off the field, while kicking and screaming. The entire stadium would erupt into applause . But no one seems to be in touch with us common folk to know that.

    I need to add that the players would be suspended without pay until the entire fine is paid. Or just have the Marines on hand to escort them out.

    At least they didn't sign Colin Kaepernick on to a team! Whether they come out with it publicly or not, it shows that many in the NFL are fed up with it as well

    It makes me so mad that I just have to laugh at them now because they are idiots that have no clue what they are even doing. What did the American Flag or our National Anthem do to hurt them? Ehhh, Nothing! So they are being disrespectful for no reason at all and it shows how small their minds really are. The owners should all get together and go league wide with a policy that if you don't respect the game, fans, veterans and for Gods sake yourself then you will not be allowed to be a millionaire crybaby anymore and black ball their asses so no team ever looks at em again.

    Its gotten much worse, and All the major networks were airing this past weekends 200+ players take a knee! Also seen some chick who was singing the National Anthem for the Detroit game maybe it was, but it was her up there singling with 4 Marines sending directly behind her, each marine decked with white gloves and each holding an American flag, and this bitch took a fucking knee well singing the anthem!

    I havent watched one single game! I refuse to give my money , time or energy to the NFL, and Steelers coach kept team in locker room during National Anthem, and one player who served with honors and decorated for valor I think it was, he came out all alone and stood there with his hand on heart! Good for him, then Coach basically shit on him by saying he was upset he didnt get 100% participation in all players staying in locker room during anthem!

    Listen I get it, I get the First amendment and that its their right to peacefully protest, but damn, The National Anthem isn’t about anything other than honoring the men and women who fight and have died for this flag!

    Cowboys played last night right? I know I read jerry Jones said he wasnt going to stand for the flag desecration kneeling BS, and I read Players (cowboys) said they would put any player who took a knee on the proverbial “shit list” if they did this. Curious who took a knee , anyone know


    Oh, I also LOVE this Burning your favorites Teams Jersey on video and posting it when your Team has players who kneel! I think its great! NFL is down about 10% revenue wise, and all due to this shit!

    Anyone know if the NFL is still a Tax exempt entity ? Or if it was changed recently? If I was POTUS, I would have the IRS have another look at that tax exemption lmao

    I'm with presser, yes they do have the right to protest but this case is exceptional. These are the 1%'ers who automatically have a platform by default, just stick a mic in thier face and whatever they say will be broadcasted. Cant they find another way to show their protest, IE a arm band or something? I'd say watch college football (which I do) but I see this movement filtering to there and then high school.

    I'm just not much of a grievance person. You have to undeniable injustice to have a grievance. The left calling every and anyone who disagrees with them a racist just deligitimizes them. When everyone is a racist, no one is.

    But thats OK, all this BS is backfiring on left loones. Its making the ones sitting on the fence turn right, its apparant in the elections. I dont think the left could win a double sided coin toss LOL

    Let em self destruct. Sure at times DT says some bizarre things, but you sure cant ever call him boring!

    The market will put an end to this shit shortly. I heard some of the players that kneeled have already lost endorsements because of it. If I was paying one of them a million a year to endorse my shit and they did this crap they would get the call from me personally, your fired and fuck off. That would be my free speech. The kneeling this weekend wasn't even about black lives matter, racial injustice or cops killing negros. It was purely ideological and in defiance of POTUS. When your free speech offends over 80% of the country you might want to keep that speech to yourself. Trump is standing behind the veterans, anthem and the flag. They have free speech and Trump has free speech and it's easy to call the winner of this battle. I no longer watch ESPN and I'm not watching any football games until this shit stops. Just wait they will be doing it in college games this week and high school and they already had a pop warner team do it. What a shit show.

    Destroy the foundation on which your freedom was built. Bite the hand that feeds you. Persecute any and all people who don't share your ideology. Marxism and communism is your friend. Just ask Cuba and Venezuela they voted for it and they love it. They might be starving to death, but remember it's for the greater good

    If they want to protest, they can decline taking their paychecks from the white team owners.
    OR, give it to the Oppressed or charity.

    Bunch of brain dead, hypocrite pussies.

    NFL is no longer tax exempt since 2015 (I think). I haven't watched a game all year, and dont plan to.

    My give-a-shit level regarding football can be measured in particles. Extremely small particles. So not watching is no great loss to me - I never watch anyway. With this disrespect for the United States of America those assholes are perpetrating, I would love to see enough regular viewers pull the plug to just shut down the NFL! The shit-for-brains players doing it is bad enough. But the owners joining them??? THAT pisses me off! Some of those bastards publicly saying their players are "intelligent, thoughtful...." defending this bullshit! It really burns my ass.

    You know what's REALLY fucked up?? I'm a hockey fan. Watch an NHL game: half of them aren't even US citizens! Many are Canadien and Eastern European and THEY ALL STAND FOR THE ANTHEM! It irritates me that they don't stand stock still... I feel like THAT is disrespectful. But like I said, many are not US citizens; and at least they're all respectful.

    I was also happy to read that the NBA commissioner sent a memo to owners ir coaches or whatever reminding them of the RULE that players stand respectfully for the National Anthem.

    Where the fuck does the NFL get off???

    I've never served, but goddamn it if I were to ever see someone disrespecting our flag or anthem I would choke the shit out of them. My blood boils when I see these ass clowns take a knee. Fuck you and the NFL. Love it or leave it..

    While I was eating lunch, they had ESPN on, and they were talking about how the NFL is thinking about making a new rule that they must stand for the national anthem. The NFL is already feeling a hit in the wallet because people aren't watching and going to games because of this bullshit. So once it effects their bottom line, they will develop a sense of morals.

    I guess I'll be the lone dissenting opinion....

    The interesting thing in this thread is that everyone seems to forget one thing - There are soldiers and veterans that *support* them *because* they are using the rights that said soldiers fought for. They aren't disrespecting the anthem - they are just not supporting it fully. Are they shitting on a flag? Are they mooning people during the anthem? No, they are just doing what every school-kid in America has had legally stated they can do - not stand for the Anthem.

Interesting that a group of people who knowingly and willingly flout US regulations (for those in the US) because they think they are stupid regulations have no issue with forcing others to follow what *you* think are important rules (that aren't even rules)

    The interesting thing in this thread is that everyone seems to forget one thing - There are soldiers and veterans that *support* them *because* they are using the rights that said soldiers fought for. They aren't disrespecting the anthem - they are just not supporting it fully. Are they shitting on a flag? Are they mooning people during the anthem? No, they are just doing what every school-kid in America has had legally stated they can do - not stand for the Anthem.

    POTUS did not overstep his boundaries by giving his opinion on it so very wrong there. The players do have a right to be bums of course as long as the league and the team owners allow it. One thing you are missing is that they are employees so the first amendment does not apply to them. If my team is worth 5 billion today and my players kneeling make it worth 4 billion in three months then you can be damn sure I'm going to do something about it. The NFL policy is stand for the anthem with helmet under left arm and no talking (roughly) and violators will be fined and the team could lose draft pics. It's awesome how the liberals have turned patriotism into a bad thing but we creep further down the rabbit hole. Let the fines start rolling in and we will see how many of them are kneeling because of black issues and how many are kneeling just to snub POTUS.

    On another note I loved LeBron chiming in with his feelings on the issue. How about just play basketball and try to catch the greatest of all time Jordan. Because you aren't even close at this point bum.

    If you are a business owner today it's very smart to keep your mouth shut about your ideology. You will immediately piss off half the country by expressing your views publicly.

    Which is part of the problem. Everyone gets passed of if someone does something they have a right to do, but you don't like. Goes both ways - the right screaming about taking a knee, and the left screaming about people saying things they don't like. When the President's opinion is that exercising their rights is somehow wrong - yes he's overstepping. He is sworn to uphold the constitution, even when it means something he does not personally like. Say you don't like it, but it's their right. Don't shoot off your big mouth about how they should all be fired...

    He's only overstepping if the NFL does not enforce their own rules. Once again as employees the first amendment doesn't apply to you. When you are on the clock you represent your employer and they deem what is and is not acceptable. It would have helped if Slaperdick wasn't the first to do it and wearing the cop pig socks was pretty ignorant. I was glad to hear that the Colt players have actually went out into their communities and met with law enforcement to begin a dialogue. Now that is a much more productive way to get traction about an the issue. I don't know if they are still kneeling or not because I haven't watched any games. There are quite a few businesses around here that aren't broadcasting the games because of it so we go spend money at their places on Sundays.

    This^^

    Bunch of hypocrites. Refuse the million dollar paychecks from the rich, white owners. Or donate it to the oppressed folk who are getting roughed up by cops (as they commit crimes).
    Plenty they can do,than act like spoiled children. They are in a work place, people need to remember that.

    The cops that are surrounding the stadiums to protect them, send them home lets the millionaire tards protect themselves.

    I was pissed at first, now I just laugh at them. Watch all of them change their mind as soon as it starts to effect their bank accounts. The old boy that started it all just said that he would stand if he could play. Poor baby.

    MLK would be ashamed of them.

    Well, actually the first amendment *does* still apply to you - as the *only* thing the first amendment does is protect you from is the *government*. Your employer can still have their own rules. I am not saying that the NFL can't fine them, or fire them - but *legally* they can't *force* them to stand. The decision to accept the associated punishment is up to the players. I still say *anyone* has the right to protest - but that like all actions, there is a consequence. Of course, that works both ways. If the NFL decides to go hard-nosed and say "If you don't stand, you're fired", what happens if the players truly believe in the cause, and chose to kneel anyway. The NFL must then follow through on their actions, and fire them as they said they would. If *enough* players (or all) decide that the cause is more important than their job, then the team forfeits - as they have no players. Also, since they have no players, they have no way to punish them - as they are no longer their employees. What if enough players believe strongly enough that they kneel at the superbowl? The whole NFL money machine grinds to a halt then and there.....No broadcast - they have to refund the insane ad slot payments, the whole hoopla of superbowl crashes to the ground - all because *some* people - who don't like having systemic racism in the USA pointed out and protested decided to *lie* and claim this was about disrespecting the flag, or soldiers, or whatever gives them the most support today - might change tomorrow. Were the people protesting a stupid war in Vietnam disrespecting the troops, or *respecting* them, by fighting to end a useless fight that was killing *off* the very same troops? If the argument is that your rights are subordinate to your duties at your job, why were people cheering when that stupid woman refused to grant marriage licenses, an act *required* by her job, *and* in violation of a court order that ordered her to do so. Was she not "protesting" by exercising her "freedom of religion" rights? If she wasn't doing her job properly because of her beliefs...why was she being cheered? On a side note - it has been dis-proven that they must stand - it is *suggested* but *NOT* a rule.

    Agreed on a few points, they do not have to stand but they are about to get pecker slapped if they don't. Check out what's going on with the Cowboys right now. They have been told by their owner that they will stand or they wont play. They were also told they are not to comment on it and the reporters are hawking them getting no comment answers over and over. I can assure you these guys aren't mad enough at POTUS to give up their paychecks or jobs. If they were actually protesting an issue it would be one thing but they aren't. They got their teeny feelings hurt by POTUS so they are only kneeling to get at him. This shows how big of babies they really are also. Also the woman was wrong with the marriage licenses because the law had changed and she had to legally grant the licences. You can't have your cake and eat it too. I hope they end their spat with POTUS soon because it's childish.
