If I remember correctly, an NFL player got a multiple game suspension because he got handsee with his wife/girl friend.

So it could be said the NFL is MORE worried about domestic violence than kneeling-locking-raising fists.

well... microaggression, safe space, no-platforming.

3 out of 5. he's almost there.

When I say safe space, I mean his news conferences.
And no-platforming, When he kicks reporters out of his news conferences citing #fakenews

ps. i'm 1/2 joking here.

Yup. If I was working on commission though I'd be worried.

I wonder if the commissioned people have seen a decrease in sales and or volume of traffic on the sales lot?

I have to guess that the company is pulling it's adds for a reason, although it would be a great publicity stunt too. There is a reason they pulled their adds.

The networks Are Thankful when a player gets injured so they can show more advertisements while he's being treated on the field. If advertisers start leaving they will start faking injuries to put on even more ads. The games will last four hours.

I don't think people were offended. In fact I have yet to see anyone say they were offended.

People (advertisers) were/are pissed that the owners haven't taken a leadership role in curtailing this while the players are on the dime. Adds are about getting your product in front of people's wealthy faces. And kneeling during the Anthem or locking arms or raising a fist or kneeling then standing is pissing the wealthy customers off.

Simple this is about money and perceived disrespect.


I disagree. I mean on my facebook feed alone I see people burning jerseys and season tickets and swearing that they'll never watch an NFL game again. Snowflakes. Special snowflakes


That's not being offended though. They aren't calling for safe spaces because people disagree with them, they are doing something about it. Protesting the NFL in return.

And try as you might, you will not turn "snowflake" or "special snowflake" back onto the right.

Looks like he did.


Tit for tat like you pointed out. Protesting the protest. Children one and all. @@

I kinda see it as the same thing. A guy takes a knee and people get so offended that they'll stop watching something they've loved to watch their whole lives. They have parties and bring family over for it. They go get chips and bear and pizza for it. It's a group activity they belong to and a social outlet. Yet one guy takes a knee and they basically chop off their nose to spite their face, type of thing.

I think that's the definition of a special snowflake and then to show how patriotic they are they post it all over facebook. LOL

How is that different then a liberal getting offended over the confederate flag? At it's core they're both snowflakes.

You don't get to trademark the term "snowflake" just because your a conservative. I'm an independent and I'm stealing that from you. LOL

Never heard of this mega dealer nor seen a commercial in the 7 states 8 have lived. Wonder if the opposite is true and some are signing on?

The snowflake I am so offended movement is huge with the far left and right.

Wonder who is standing up for the troops that have been coming home to racism after defending white supremacists free speech?

Ww2 vets? Korean war?, Vietnam?, desert storm?, Iraqi freedom?

Who stands up for those guys getting harassed by police?

Wasn't the Dallas cop killer nut a vet?

Maybe it's more complicated than the hysterical right and left pretend.

No one boycotting the NFL, and not even Trump, are trying to prevent them from kneeling themselves. I don't see Orange Hitler coming down from the WH and infringing on anyone's right to speak or protest. They will be vocal about their feelings on the matter though.

Quite different from liberals that want an entire college campus to become a safe space so that Ben Shapiro or Milo can't come and speak.

If so that wouldn't affect the NFL at all. It would the local network affiliate.

Why? because he calls out the Media?

Even NBC has admitted that he is right.

But liberals should be able to protest Milo. I mean like a normal protest, not Antifa. But even that's stupid. Why protest someone speaking just because they're a conservative? Just don't go.

I just find it funny how everyone gets so offended these days, liberals and Conservatives equally. With Christmas coming I'm going to be inundated with all the snowflakes crying about a war on Christmas. But, I'll do my best to ignore them and move on.

No, calling otu the media is a good thing. He gets called a snowflake because he gets so offended by everything. I don't even know how he functions.

It's not about them protesting someone coming to speak, that's fine. It's about students trying to prevent them from speaking at all even though the speaker has an agreement with the school.

And I'll be sure to give you an early Merry Christmas (hopefully saying that won't offend the atheists)!
