The NFL has people that want to kneel for the national anthem, which offended some people. While ABC had Rosanne, who told a joke on twitter that offended some people.
Keeping in mind, only the government can technically have 1st amendment issues. If one argues that corporations can act as government proxies, and the 1st amendment bleeds into that. I think is one could make that argument. On the flip side, if you want to argue that: people just whine when they are told to shut up, i think one could make that argument also
Do you think both situations are Freedom of Speech issues? Do you support the NFL but not ABC, ABC not the NFL, neither, or both? It's kind of interesting reading the arguments for and against.

Imagine if Herr Drumpf hadn't ruined the USFL™ We could be typing about Cedar Rapids putting a beat down on Waco in the latest USFL™ tilt but No...
Who else thinks the NFL™ should be like Churches™ and start paying taxes??
In Jacksonville, Flori-DUH they froze hiring at both the school house and the fire house because the Jaguars™ NEEDED a new $1.2 Billion with a B for the folks who are AT THE GAME!! Their attention span is so shot, they need to be amused the avg. of 37 seconds between snaps...

The sad part is that by Roseann running her racist mouth, it hurt the rest of the cast and crew of the show.
The advertisers bailed the second they heard about the tweet. Without ads, no reason to continue.
some pro athletes are not allowed to do crazy scary stuff like ride motorcycles
