Pretty sure there will be a strike now. You can't have a season without players.


Perfect. then call up the minor teams players and replace them. Scabs love working for that kind of cash.


The question is how much would you be willing to pay to see two High School football teams play?

Lol.... I like it.

The power of making them mute, insignificant, and penniless compels them.

I find it very funny that the media would have you believe some minority of white supremacists are all Trump has in his pocket. The media keeps on blowing that trumpet (pun intended) but if Donald accuses you as a politician, media, or business you are pretty much done.

IMHO that is why I think they want him gone so bad. They have lost control of the people and he now has it. If he but whispers you are unAmerican or full of # your livelihood may very well be over as the revenue stream starts to dry up.

These people think themselves masters of the world and now they live in fear. So sweet the nectar of these budding flowers...

Republicans really care about their nationalist dogma. This is a perfect setup for all players to kneel.

They should stand with their heads down and arms out in front with their wrists crossed. Like being handcuffed in front.


They should turn their backs.

Pretty much what I said in another thread. The power is in the players' hands. They showed solidarity when Trump begged the NFL to take action. Hopefully they'll continue to show solidarity now that action is actually being taken. Is Dallas going to forfeit a game because all of their players kneeled? Is the NFL going to fine/suspend the entire league? The NFL's pocketbook is going to take a bigger hit if the players start refusing to play than if they just let them protest in peace.


actually the power is still in the hands of the fans, if they still tune out or complain to the sponsors the pressure will still build.

If the players strike and the nfl brings in scabs, and the fans tune back in and go back to the games then the fans will have stripped the players of all their power.

No fans no game either.

As another form of silent protest.

I remember the last time there was a strike and the scabs played, my favorite team was in the middle of 20 straight losing seasons.

we showed up in the thousands to watch the scabs play, they played hard and with passion, yea it was not as polished but it was better than seeing over paid cry babies whine about only making 6 figures when the average american (majority of the fans) will never make that much.

Yeah because replacement players worked so well 30 years ago.
You obviously don't know how the NFL works. Many opposed to this protest don't.

Look, it's a Trump supporter. Those aren't the thoughts of a retarded villain. Really good people talk like that.

mute, insiginificant, and penniless.... So inspiring! Those NFL players are so lucky to have such wonderful caring fans.

You know what though...i'd bet that at least 1/3 of the people opposed to the NFL protest would support it if the players involved would have begun beating the drum for something. They put the effort in to get attention, then did nothing with it. Which leads many to assume that they didn't want to achieve anything, but only wanted the attention.

I'd likely be pretty sympathetic to their cause, it someone would just use their college degrees (the NFL is full of college educated men) to create some sort of marketing or talking points that they then speak to during one of the dozens of times they have microphones in front of them.

The only real voice I have seen come out to speak is Lebron James, who is not college educated and not in the NFL, and who called anyone not agreeing with him "uneducated".

I mean, it really is pretty ridiculous. It feels like a group of teenagers trying to hunger strike so their parents will let them stay up late or something.

I still think it's pretty funny that people are still acting outraged about this. A few years ago if a player was picking his nose during the anthem, while the dude sitting next to you in the stands was sitting down horking down a hotdog, you couldn't care less. Now.. because Trump sezs so.. it's a dire insult to the nation and omg the rage that must ensue until this is FIXED!

I wonder if some day, people will realize even if they did support the clown that is Trump, that can still think for themselves, and aren't forced to actually act outraged about something just because Trump tweeted angrily.. again.

Oh if you're interested in why they're protesting, you should maybe listen to what they have to say about. I'll give you a hint... Systemic Racism. For instance how the president of the united states can suggest very good people on both sides when talking about Nazis and White Supremacists... but then suggest NFL players should be fired for kneeling during the anthem. Extra harsh treatments for blacks. But again... don't take my word for it... Go listen to what the players have to say... if you really care.

There have been but it doesn't get much airtime. So much more noise to focus on the NFL players vs Trump. I'll also give you some players are doing just that. Flipping the bird at Trump.

remember the product in many markets is putrid, Tampa got more people in the stands with scabs than they did with the high priced players back then.

That's because back then it improved the Buccaneers roster.


Seriously, the fans didn't watch.

I did... I guess I am a glutton for punishment, but once the Bucs won the Superbowl a lot of my interest faded.

All this political junk being pulled into the sport just made it easier for me (and some others) to just turn tv off rather than deal with it.

geez, that was close....good thing there wasn't any talk about what KAP was protesting in the first place...you black people just need to step-and-fetch-it for your white billionaire owners, I mean after all, they paid a lot of money for you, and you need to shut your mouth and do what they say, or you sons-of-bitches need to be fired....anything else is anti-flag, or anti-American, or anti-military...
