Thank you for that response. I just heard the latest poll that 72% of Americans feel that Donald Trump is right and the NFL is wrong.


Well let's be fair. Polls can be garbage.

We will have to see the ratings and the reactions Of the NFL and teams to get a better picture of what most people think of this issue.

I have seen moderate Democrats taking his side. Even if only a little, is a far cry from the norm.

I don't think they should be fired but I believe the critism is fair and part of the deal.

NASCAR on Monday released a statement calling respect for the national anthem a "hallmark" of its events while adding that people have a right to express themselves.
...
Former NASCAR champion Richard Petty told the AP that any member of his team would be fired if they chose to protest the national anthem.

Kinda doubt there will be many knees at a race in order to test people's reactions.



Here's NASCAR showing utmost respect for the American flag:

The NFL will either have to change its Operations Manual, or enforce what's written in it. They actively enforce even the most trivial B.S..

I have a poll rather a Stat that shows the majority of Americans are grossly emerged in debt.

Yet half consider themselves conservative.

The nFL doesn't have to do anything what are we china?

My goodness folks this really brings the hypocrisy of America to the forefront.

The NFL has people that follow ratings.

What people here believe is their point of view is the majority,

Pretty sure those that know,...undrstand the 18-30 year old demographic has much more competition then the NFL did in 1989.

Who here thinks 18-30 year olds are going to go crazy over the flag in mass?

Anyone that has been a proponent of people getting fired for their personal 'offensive' opinion in their Twitter or Facebook because of how it represents the company at which they work, should be all for firing them when it is actually AT work. That's a no brainer, thus even liberals should be capable. Joke.

Honest question to the liberals on here ( and those few that say they're not, but spew every talking point imaginable) How would you react if the entertainment of your choice was proceeded by a conservative monologue?

That's a pretty dumb point. Or lack of.


If your boss is out there with you why would you get fired. Ps

As an employer which would be worse a guy protesting people get treated fairly or we should get rid of jews, blacks, catholics, Latinos etc....

You kind of limit your employee base.

Because it's about the offense to the consumers, you know the ones who pay for the product, the whole reason for their existence. Are you certain that none of the bosses that have had to fire their employees for this reason agreed with their employee?

Well if they're really protesting that, there must be hundreds of examples why do they pick such bad ones? Why ignore VIOLENT criminal statistic and how they correspond?

So its your assessment is that only people that have been fired have been for the acts that you mention?

With private treaty, our family buys three good Sect 127 seats for a couple of home games. Now unless this stops, they're gob the NFL exchange. We trek over from Idaho, so we spend a lot of dough to attend, including two nights stay in a hotel, and top restaurants! So many Patriots died keeping our flag flying through that night' terror bombardments which Mr. Keys iimmortalized, that taking a knee today is a crime! This is Bolshevik crapola, straight out of their divide and conquer books. a reply to: seagull

So apparently DirecTV is offering refunds on Sunday Ticket for fans that are fed up with the kneeling during the anthem.

They wouldn't be doing that if it was just a handful of people.

If you still think it's having no impact on ratings you're lying to yourself.

It means enough people called to cancel and rather than wasting their time arguing they made an easy out policy.

Not surprised, personally.

That's precisely my point. A large company like that wouldn't make a policy change if it was just a few people here and there.

The myth that it's not affecting the NFL's ratings is busted.

Anheuser Busch is going to talk to NFL about protests. One of their biggest advertisers. More complaints.

As well they should. If the NFL wants to negatively impact their profits to practice politics on Sunday, that's their right as a private organization. But other companies that are involved with them have a say too. They probably have ways out of contracts if they think the NFL is knowingly damaging their image.

Apparently they are super upset because it was Gold Star Mother's Day. Did Trump just bait the NFL?

IMO, the vast majority of 18 to 30 year olds' who were born here, are too pre-occupied with trying to live day-to-day, and pay the monthly bills. They don't even know what it's like to relax, and reflect on their good fortune of being an American.

Those who come here from India, China, Japan, and other developed countries, appear to take the time to enjoy life more.
