I am using my freedom of speech to say that the Broncos suck.


... and kneeling while I do so.

When they are protesting the national anthem, they are being anti-American.

MY OPINION.

That's how I see it.

That's how I interpret it.


My OPINION is that they are protesting an injustice, not disrespecting the flag or America. They want America to be better.


Problem is the injustice they're all wrapped up in kneeling about pales in comparison to the injustices they ignore. It's like protesting cold food when you haven't eaten in a week.


My Theory is that they're hurt because Obama did nothing for the community, and Hillary would have been no better. It's despair lashing out. Scorched Earth thingy.

I wonder how all those starving in Africa feel about these millionaire crybabies blabbering on and on about how racist America is.



Millionaire crybabies?



Yup, in other words, crybaby millionaires.


Your focus should be on the crybaby billionaires of Wall St and Big Pharma who "cry" daily to congress in the form of lobbying. But no, focus on the NFL, where the average salary is $1.9 million yearly (including the $25 million paid to typically a QB on each team).


We're in an NFL thread. I'm focusing on the topic at hand.

Point me to the Wall St and Big Pharma thread and I'll be happy to focus on that.


Sure you would.

So upset about crybaby millionaires.

Especially the ones who grew up with nothing and made a name for themselves.

It's ok. You like those cry baby millionaires who grew up rich, went to private schools and then ivy league schools and then got jobs due to daddy. Funny isn't it - what 90% are white? But sure, chose to attack the NFL as crybabies because what, they don't steal enough for you?

If you are going to equate NFL players as "crybabies" because they are millionaires, you need to start about 2,395 more threads about all those others you are so angry with. I'm sure you will though because according to your logic, any person who makes - what is it a million, two million? dollars and speaks out about social injustice is a crybaby.

Funny too that Wall St is exactly what this is about.


Wall Street’s top bosses have pledged for years to boost diversity in their ranks. But the number of black people at some of the biggest U.S. banks is going in reverse.
At JPMorgan Chase & Co., Citigroup Inc. and Goldman Sachs Group Inc., the percentage of senior black executives and managers fell over the past five years, according to U.S. workforce data compiled by Bloomberg. They make up no more than 2.6 percent of top positions at the three banks, lower than across corporate America, where the percentage is slightly better and ticking up.
Black diversity is also going backward for all U.S. employees at JPMorgan, Citigroup and Bank of America Corp., where the percentage of black workers slipped to 13.1 percent from 15.2 percent in 2012. All three lag the active U.S. workforce, which was 14.8 percent black in 2015, the most recent year for which nationwide data is available.


But no, keep attacking the NFL players. In your world, this is important.

no blacks in the big banks

I wonder if they will still want the government/DHS to keep working for them to stop all the knockoff jerseys coming out of China?

Do tey still want customs and border patrol to check every package and confiscate all Unlicensed NFL apparel?

What a bunch of hypocrites..

I live around the Pittsburgh area.

After the game today, call in shows the Steelers Facebook page and other places were flooded with call after call or post after post of people disgusted by them not coming out for the anthem.

Many are celebrating today as a victory for the NFL over trump.

I am not so sure.

If enough people get fed up, it may push people toward trump and away from the NFL and the protesters.

I guess time will tell.

that is what I thought. But after listening to the MSM, that including Fox, is that it was for their being against what Trump said in his speech, that they should be fired. Lord knows they will not fire whole teams for it. But it wasn't for anti-police brutality, or hands up don't shoot (a false narrative) it was for their hatred of Trump. and the Lord knows they owners wont fire a whole team. For money runs the sport, no players, no sport, no money.

And what do "some" starving Africans got to do with American racism, police and judicial misconduct???... Ugh silly me , off course they're BLaaaACK!!!!
BTW Colin Kaepernick is very much involved in helping out Somalians and others in drought affected areas in east Africa, he is also involved in meals on wheels in the states, I bet if you took the time to look up what some of these sports figures are doing with their undeserved wealth.. Maybe you wouldn't bother making a smug azzed post.

Various players were kneeling before Donald Trump said anything. Colin Kaper(?) started it last year. Candidate Trump said he should move out of America if he was so unhappy here.

So you come into a thread on a topic, cry about people talking about the topic, bring up an entirely different topic, then when asked twice to link to threads on that other topic you fail to do so.

All I can take from that is you're posturing and don't care about the other topic. Where's your thread on it? For the third time.

Again I pint out.

Remember, Steve clevenger was suspended from his MLB team for saying blm and rioters were a bunch of animals that needed locked up.

Where were all of these people screaming about his rights?

Not a peep. Its only speech they care about that they will defend.
