I think the number of Anti-America players is shrinking. ESPN didn't show the Anthem before tonight's BEARS vs VIKINGS game. Must not have been any controversy for boosting ESPN's ratings.

SJW= a bunch of attention seeking pansies


Fixed it for you.

If they really cared about the cause they were protesting they'd sit out the game and/or retire, and get active! Kneeling during the anthem is bound to be controversial, raise attention, and yet accomplish nothing at the same time.




Much of our modern day culture is based on words. Words backed up with nothing.

It's pathetic.


I'm amazed at how football players act like sissies during the national anthem,

and then on the other hand you have some oddball European NHL hockey player have to sit through the American and Canadian anthems multiple times weekly. Do you ever see them complaining and acting like babies?

Call me what you want, but the wording in your heading is down right racist. I am not joking or kidding. In fact it dates back to how Black Face were made to talk. See Charlie Chang movies.........In the 30s 40s 50s.....Have a nice day!






The only thing racist is you assuming that only black people talk like that.


Could you re-read what you quoted, and what you said.... then rephrase it?

I'm not at all sure who you are agreeing with.


I wasn't agreeing with anyone. I responded to another posters post who felt your title was racist.

What about all the tax payer money the teams get for stadiums and the tax breaks the league gets?

Don't want to piss off the taxpayers that don't even watch, let alone go and spend $400 or more for a family of 4, for a game.

Damn right they work for money, ours.

How was the heading racist in any way? I actually scrolled up to read it again. Seems like common sense - stop generating revenue for your employer and things get sticky.

Hey, maybe I'm not that bright. Does anyone else here understand what 3daysgone meant? Can you explain it to me, like I'm five?

No one is stopping them from kneeling any other time during the game. Maybe they can do it before the Anthem or even during the two-minute warning.

I might come back and watch ... if 'they' started taking a knee right in the middle of a big play.

LMFAO

Sorry to (have to be that guy who says it), but there's a certain group of people who ruin every single damned thing they're allowed to touch. I think the NFL is finally ruined.

Why's it so hard for the common man to even admit to that? It's as obvious as the nose right there on your face.

We live in a world that is a parody of a cable movie parody of reality.
Now you can even get fined in Cali for using OMG, the correct gender pronoun (you know, because everyone is supposed to know the pronoun du'jour).... or anything other than what someone wants to hear.

"Excuse me, Officer... my preferred gender pronoun is JoJoOpressedKnoxville. That bad person over there, they didn't use it. Repeatedly. MAKE THEM PAY!!!!!"


You cannot make this crap up. Welcome to the toilet, folks.

I know ..I just encountered a MAJOR ATS glitch
What I meant to say was the OP's title is Old South speak. Us older folks , regardless of race , still break into it every now and then..
Some folks falsely stereotype without first becoming informed.
