Soccer is a great sport and doesn't involve nearly the SJW spectacle the current NFL does.

NFL will kill its business with this. Ratings are plummeting. That will affect the next tv deal which will cause lower salaries, never mind lack of game day revenue as many stadiums are full of empty seats.

There's nothing that sets off conservatives worse than black people protesting.


Dude.. It doesn't have anything to do with that for me...

These people (not all black, mind you) are using their 15 minutes of fame to make political statements on my dime.

YES... I pay for cable TV. I want to watch football and basketball (if the Lakers ever improve)

I do not want to watch sport-o-politics.


I don't blame the players. I blame the owners at this point.

I wonder what would happen if a North Korean athlete knelt down in protest for their national anthem during a sporting event...

Is it hard to ignore one minute of TV?

I just calls 'em like I see 'em. Anyone's opinion is "spin" in some sense, but some of the responses in this thread are textbook racist... so... ??

So you think they should be forced to stand?

And furthermore, thousands of blacks murdered by other blacks every year?


So show me where conservative care about this issue other than to bring it up when talking about unarmed minorities being shot?

Then the pregame, halftime, and postgame is of no interest. Right?
What's the problem with 1 minute or so of some guys kneeling during the SSB?
I thought the Pats game was pretty good. Didn't you?

Some of us would not like to be preached at during our entertainment., We've already been preached earlier on Sunday.

The NFL doesn't care about lost revenue, it's all about morals.

You're still deflecting? Lol. I thought you were on about Wall St and Big Pharma. Now you deflected to inequality?

I know what it is. Minorities are victims of inequality, so much so to the point Asians are the top earners in America and out-earn the evil white man.


That's cool. If you can't see the correlation to the racist practices of the biggest money makers in the US and why pro athletes kneel during the national anthem than I can't help you.


Lol. You should pivot to aliens next.

BTW, they're not kneeling to protest Big Pharma, they're kneeling to protest black lives not mattering enough.


Aliens, as far as I know, aren't racists.

Now to your second point, just use your head for a minute and think...why would they feel lie their lives don't matter enough? Just go nuts and throw some stuff out.


Because the number one cause of death for young black men is murder by other young black men, and the media and culture ignores this?


No. But there is a reason that stat exists and it isn't because blacks are some subhuman animals.


Who said they were.

Let me try again then.

Do they feel that their lives don't matter because they are treated like children by some that do not give them the dignity of having personal responsibilty?


I think the baseball player guy you were referencing thinks they are animals.

I don't know what you are trying to say with that last part. I know a lot of idiots who are not personally responsible and most of them wouldn't take on the personal responsibility of putting their jobs on the line to speak up about the injustices done to them. See how I did that?


No clevenger said the blm people rioting and those supporting them were animals.

What I meant by my last sentence was that some people claim that it's not black people's fault they commit crime, or that black people can't be racist, or that black people need special treatment to achieve in schoo l or the work place.

You know, treating them like chdren with no responsibility that need to be protected.

Yes, if I was black, that would offend me and make me question of those doing that thought my life mattered.


I understand. Some people claim it isn't their fault they commit massive fraud by inventing toxic CDO's and selling them to the uneducated public; some people claim just because they wear nazi gear, preach hatred of Jews, blacks, etc doesn't mean they aren't peace loving fun to hang with homies.

How about all of those in the Red States on welfare who hate other people on welfare?
How about the typical and historically overused idea that white people use all the time of "immigrants are taking my job" when in reality most of them are those people complaining about others on welfare?


Sure those peoe are wrong. Personal responsibility is a wonderful thing.

But I don't see huge movements in academia, the media, political world, sports world, and hollywood to make excuses for the Nazis and say it not their fault, or even for poor white people.

When is the last time you have heard a large group claiming poor white people can't be racist, or That white people shouldn't be judged for crimes the commit because of the circumstances they live in.

Yet some people treat blacks like children and take away that which makes us who we are, our personal responsibility.



Hmmm. Making excuses or righting a wrong.

The last time I knew that white people would not be judged (even more definitive than shouldn't) because of the circumstances they live in was the last time Wall Street tried to destroy our economy. One banker - ONE - was held accountable. That is a fact.

one guy went to jail while all the other white guys didn't


Yes bankers avoided jail time, were bailed out,etc. It was a disgrace, and something I argued heavily against.

Are you suggesting it was their skin color and not wealth that allowed them to avoid jail time?

If so what is the impication?

Can I cite oj as proof that black people avoid jail time?

Of course not.

Our legal system is a joke for the extremely wealthy, regardless of color.

Yet one more advantage the rich NFL kneelers have over the rest of us.

You don't believe their protest is valid? Fine. Let them do what they think is right and get over yourself. Watch the game, get on with life.

That's what you don't get: much of the allure of watching a sports event is that it's not political! For once, just once, can you people not try to inject your hatred of Trump, anyone who looks like Trump, anyone who thinks like Trump, anyone who talks like Trump (essentially anyone who doesn't agree with you) into one, just one little aspect of my existence?

I watch a lot of news. I read a lot of news. Once a week I might get a chance to watch a game I want to see, and I have quite enough protests and cries of despair and accusations of racism/sexism/homophobia/transphobia/xenophobia/deplorabilism/whatever-the-talking-point-will-be-tomorrow to do me for the space of one football game.

You know, I used to think Jehovah's Witnesses were bad... yeah, they show up regularly talking nonsense and wanting to inject their opinions into my life, but the SJW crowd has taken it to a whole new level. Instead of once or twice a week, they're going minute by minute, and trying to force me to watch their stoopidity by holding a relaxing football game hostage to it.

Most of you sound like privileged slave masters yourselves. Crying about how they get paid to entertain you and you're not entertained.

Well guess what, you don't own them. They aren't your property that you get to command. They aren't about to start begging for your dollars like a slave. They earned that money by fighting their way into that position ahead of other top players. Not one of you could do their job.

All they're doing is silently taking a knee during the anthem and you can't stand it. They still play the game even. It doesn't even require any additional time for anything. They just take a knee in silence and that's it.


"Damn N*GGERS are getting upity again!! Starting to think they're people with opinions and stuff. Well I paid my money for them to entertain me. So Dance N*GGER!!"

That is what you all sound like.

Some black athletes want to be silent for the anthem and you can't handle it. But let it be some good ol' white boys with cowboy hats and you'll let them start an armed takeover of Government land and buildings and it's full support for them.

You're truly the most self involved, triggered, snowflakes on earth.

Thats what I saw too.

Its funny, so many people were on ats hailing today as a great win for the NFL against trump.

I think they are about to find out that the majority of NFL viewers disagree.

People took off their jerseys, shirts, hats... changed the channels at the bars to Soccer. There were 3 block parties here today. Everyone..and I mean everyone got up and left or changed it to soccer as well. And Steeler lawn ornaments came down and pitched to the corner for garbage pickup here in the morning.

I chose to watch the game... and wait to hear what Coach Tomlin and Art Rooney had to say about it at the end of the game. He didn't want to disrepect the National Anthem, but at the same time he had this to say about what the President said...

****photo coming*****



Alejandro Villanueva btw said that when you make 60 Million a year....
This is not the way to handle things.
