I love to shoot, I go to the range, I do it in competition...therefor snipers in the military are not impressive to me.

Anyone can do it and relish and enjoy it.


I used to play "Duck Hunt" on my old Atari in the 70s. It's the same thing I'm sure.

So you have to be told by law to honor the flag?


Who said it is the law? Why is that your argument?





The bottom line is that you cannot equate a professional football team to your office or any office environment; it's absurd.


Why not? Actually sports teams have always been held to a higher standard supporting all. Disrespect to the flag and national anthem is not supporting all.

Says who? Haven't you ever heard of a strike before?


Nothing wrong with protesting or striking, but they are not at work right?

Just trying to point out the absurd argument of our friend.

Like engineers are just born that way....

Hilarious stuff.

I wonder if any of these NFL guys do any social work or start there own businesses?

Why should I look and find out...

So why do you have a problem with it again? How does it affect you?


Do you agree with every protest? Is it not my right to disagree too? lol you all are so one sided... In the end if everyone likes it then they can do it...and I can chose not to support as a fan...

If by American citizens exercising their Consitutional rights is a "one-sided," issue - it's not too hard to understand which side you may want to fall into.

Generally one strikes during working hours.

It is what it is, conversing with you is an absolute waste of time so enjoy your day, man.



Lol then why engage at all... I get attacked from 4 different people when I only said that at work as professional is not the place to protest.

That is my point...

Well kap has been selling jerseys for a while and not even playing....

The 6 percent of people dumb enough to be outraged by this won't do all that much...just like this weekend when the sports bars were full.


I'm not outrage...I just think it is stupid for them to do...

Of course it is your right! And when you come here and post reasons for your disagreement in public, it's okay for the public to tell you it's ridiculous.

Vote with your wallet! I couldn't agree more!

Didn't you already state they aren't really professionals?

Very confusing stuff coming out of you.

Can someone explain to a foreigner why kneeling before the flag / during the anthem is deemed protesting? Maybe I´m missing something historical here? Isn´t kneeling a devout body language, and wouldn´t it express going out of your way for the flag/anthem as in honoring it?

Not trolling, serious question.

Striking outside the building you work is "not at work"?

I think it is dumb too.. the difference is I don't care and pretend I am upset about it.

Also know I wasn't raised the same as everyone with the same life expiriences...sometimes it's good to not make a hard judgement on people you know nothing about, particularly when a lieing scumbag like a politician writes a script for everyone to parrot like a Monty python sketch.

I'm a native American citizen and I've been asking that question for days. Perhaps you'll get an answer.

A professional means they have a career...didn't you say these guys just have great physiques?

Couldn't anyone with good genes play football? You just pump some iron and sign up right?

Oh yeah, I'm the one that's triggered over Americans exercising their Consitutional rights.
