(Daily Caller News Foundation) President Donald Trump is upset that the NFL decided not to punish players who kneel for the national anthem.

Angry Fans Bombard NFL Teams’ Facebook Pages w/ Negative Comments

“The NFL has decided that it will not force players to stand for the playing of our National Anthem. Total disrespect for our great country!” Trump said in a tweet Wednesday.

The NFL will not punish players who kneel for the Star Spangled Banner at the start of football games for the time being, The New York Times reportedTuesday evening after a meeting between NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and several team owners.

The league rules say that players need to be on the sidelines for the anthem, and says that they “should” stand for the anthem, making it difficult to impose fines or punish players who kneel.

“I can’t really tell you what people are going to do,” Stephen Ross, owner of the Miami Dolphins, said during a news conference when asked if players would continue to protest by kneeling. “The league has a policy. It hasn’t changed.”

    When they start taking pay cuts because their team cannot afford to pay them, maybe they’ll learn.

  • Janelle

    The public can get them on their feet again. Fewer feet in the stands, fewer eyes watching, fewer beers sold, less team merchandise purchased and far less enthusiasm. Green is the color that walks the walk.

            When I first noticed the Trump lies, I thought, “he surely knows he said something opposite yesterday”. Then it got more and more obvious. That was when I looked up the behavioral profile regarding habitual liars. Well, the more I studied the entire situation and statements etc, the worse it got. When someone one fits 10 out of 10 behavioral traits of someone who is not at all as he should be on a rational level, then it is serious.

            Actually, the disrespect for those who did not agree with Trump was really sickening. His trashy talk really was something that the Pres. of the US should not do in public. Then his threats toward people who disagreed with him or called him out like he continues to do, should not be allowed. Should some one threatens another person, and everyone hears it, it is against the law, if I am not mistaken. Perhaps as long as Trump doesn’t follow through on threats that cause physical harm, he is within the limits of the law. However, he is so sinister.

          • Fred Amirault

            thank you

          • Jo Melcher

            Be careful what you say, we will all stand before God someday and answer!

          • Fred Amirault

            You mean that the Bible is not correct. We are Babylon today, and will be destroyed. Trump will be that vehicle , but like the nations that were to punish Israel, he goes too far and will pay. Trump will join Russia, and try to destroy Israel, who will be defended by God and he will be rolled by God along with his Trump tower Moscow. God has promised a rolling earth to befall those attacking Israel. Including Russia. It is in Ezekiel.

          • Fred Amirault

            no, you believe in the man who has all cure possible in his magic potion, except it is poison and he is a master in diversion. He is a racist, and a bigot, He has one who is black in his entire administration Maybe because he want to have a doctor in his staff, just in case, He started the fight with the widow as a diverson of losing 4 soldier in Niger just after he made the awful decision of getting his best ally mad enough to leave the Americans alone because he put them on the travel ban. So another ally is turned into an enemy. Why Janelle?s he mad at the Military. Or just those 4 soldiers.Maybe he is envious that Chad is so good.. Has he done anything to become great again or he just dividingthe nation so Putin can come in and completely destroy us while making him a hero, and giving him the Trump tower Moscow that he really wants. Why does Trump refuse to put Russia into the mix against Iran, and North Korea? He made both Countries what they are today

          • Janelle

            Please find a therapist.

          • Fred Amirault

            No, you need to find one Everyone is saying how this man does not have then mental capabilities to be put in charge of our nukes and every other part of this government. Are you racist. He sure is. And on top of that , he is abusive to women as well. If he gets close to you, you will see it

          • Fred Amirault

            You need to read Social savvy’s comments. If you do not see them, you need a Shrink, a or you are as sick an individual as him Look at how he has changed about the Opiod epidemic, and how he says that we have to do the same failed idea that has bee tried for the last 45 years

          • Brent

            Obozo what?
            I don’t think there’s a pathological liar out there that could keep up with Obozo, but good effort.

          • socialsavvy

            It is not good for you to think.

          • Brent

            You’re so funny.

          • Fred Amirault

            The only bozo is Donald Trump. and the only Liar. Trump for years claimed that Obama is not even born in the USA. Remember that?? for 2 years,Trump claimed this until it no longer matters. Now, he admits that he was born in the USA.No, he calls a congress woman lies even though that another person actually interviewed the Wife of the slain serviceman who admitsto what the president said. and he always has evidence and never once did he show such evidence.Maybe you can go and kill this service man’s family. Keep them from proving this woman true

          • Brent

            Fred, are you pretending to be an American? If you’re not, that’s fine, just don’t pretend to be an American.

            And the most noteworthy killers in politics are the Clintons.

          • Fred Amirault

            Brent. There is one more important thing that you are missing. I do not know what Murders that you are talking about whether it is some guy in Arkansas on the 1990’s, or Bengazhi. I do not think that God would protect the Clinton’ s if either of them was actually responsible for any deaths. There is word that the Ambassador was too trusting of the People in Libya That is Hillary’s fault?? no, that was one man’s decision,because it also killed others, but Not Hillary’s fault. Tell me. Do you believe in God? I not only Believe ,but have a bunch of faith that he does the right thing. Like somehow, I survived severe burns to over 70% of my body at a hospital that had a terrible track record.In fact the day I was burned, My heart had stopped. and what was amazing is that as yhey came with the crash cart, the heart restarted on its own. Amazing!! * years later, within the month, I had 4 surgeries. what ended up to be open gall bladder removal surgery, an ERCP to place a shunt to divert my bile down the Bile duct, and 2 days later, a bypass surgery because the bile duct was occluded. 2 weeks later, I was near death and needed an emergency surgery because my stomach was full of 2 deadly infections. I also had to move over 2000 miles away for corrective surgery. I Know that God does not just sit on his hands in heaven, and does nothing The way this country is now, it will be better that it does get destroyed, for all we do is fight, and nothing gets done,and the poor suffer more,and more for what the rich conservatives does to them. I am a poor consevative.throwing people under the Bus is just wrong.

          • Jeff Karas

            Why do you bother attempting to engage in meaningful discourse with any of the Trump cult? They are political retards.

          • Fred Amirault

            Well, they are also the ones that it Trump gets stopped will make civil war as well. Our best chance at not getting Nuked is to get him out of there before he can destroy us from Within.

          • Jo Melcher

            O’Bama already did this the past 8 years, we may never recover from what he did to this country!

          • Fred Amirault

            He did do some things, but he was never a racist like the one in that office today. The republicans decided that they would destroy the country, and they are doing this now. Better hope that a bank will not rip you off Bank robbery in reverse

          • Fred Amirault

            Really Brent Bozo.the Pagan, and Ultimate liar. No one has lied as much as the most crooked business man, ever. was one of Obama’s so called lies where he was lied?? This will tell how bad a liar you are.

          • Dead Toad

            Please stop watching CNN MSNBC and other liberal media Outlets. They’re fake news and lies are working on you. Please turn to foxnews and stay there until you’re cured.

          • Fred Amirault

            Why don’t you go back, and start listening to every word that Trump says. I do not need any other Media, Just listen to his lies which he does many times each day. I listens to how he bragged about groping women any time that he felt like, and how he continually speaks like a child, says he can shoot any one how he even abused moderator during his debates And to get out of Purto Rico because the Mayor of San Juan told him that he was doing nothing?? Throwing paper towel are about the cheapest stunts.How about at least throw bottles of water that are desperately needed. And he treated his first trip to Texas after the Hurricane there like it was a political rally, and it is all about HIM You don’t go push nuclear war with another nation Nobody Wins, though when you give your nuclear secrets to your mortal enemy, I can see where North Korea will be protected. and why every time something new comes out of the Mueller investigation he starts that rhetoric. Wake up people Your president is a con man, and he is playing with you very lives. He is there for Russia, and against America

          • Brent

            Hmmm…talks about being able to grope women VS being an active sexual predator like Bill Clinton. Yeah, Trump’s the bad guy here because locker room talk is so incredibly offensive but when a leftist sexually assaults somebody it’s all good. Get real man.

          • Fred Amirault

            And you praise your son each time he gets accused of that. I am also sure that those gropes led to much more, Like rape. he just has the means to pay them off. This man kills four soldiers, and now he attacks the woman he does call or to give her his condolences but to disrespect her, because they are blackb co he kills people and then takes the people’s mind off of that by doing something else wrong. ll of this from our divider in chief.I suggest to look atone thing. When he talks about war with North Korea. I always conveniently takes place when there is new news from the Mueller investigation, or anything else that leads to be criticized for He thinks that he just deserve praise Puerto Rico, electrical problems were not always there, but when Harvey knocked out Houston’s they got help from like 5000 outside repair crews while Purto Rico gotr perhaps a dozen or 2

          • Brent

            Here is a quote from a post you wrote in response to me:
            “I hope that the nuke North Korea strikes first is far enough from you house so you can see it, and watch your family die,before you do. T his is what is going to happen to you Friend of Russia”

            You’re not worth talking to, and as a result, you’ve just been blocked.
            Enjoy your life leftist.

          • Fred Amirault

            Brent, You are asking for it. You do not listen to Trump unless you like what he says. You never look at the context as though everything he says is stand alone, and North Korea comments always come when there is a a story revolving around the Mueller Investigation.So, you are bascically sayong the exact same thing about the poor, middle class and heir health care coverage You are saying the same thing to every person that he ridicules from female debate Moderators, to anyone that disagrees with him. He is a known racist and all of the past presidents including the republicans do not like him He is not the commander in chief, but the divider in chief. And he can not take criticism of any kind

          • Fred Amirault

            Does severe burns to 70% of my body qualify? How about a Botched Gall bladder surgery where the lacerated mu right hepatic Artery, and then when repairing it, they put stitches in my common bile duct, then when bypassing my bile duct, i back up, became septic, and had 4 deadly infections. . I was let open, and had a fistula, and I had to move miles away to fix that. Do either of those 2 qualify?? Yet, I did survive.

          • socialsavvy

            I often wonder why, when credited information is given to these right wing people that they accuse one of being a liberal, communist, or they do me. My political views has nothing to do with being a liberal. My views are praying for a chance to save America from hate and anger that is going to turn into killing of people who have a different opinion than those whom we call conservative. That is not conservationism, that is paranoia, and of the worst kind. I have no doubt if some of these people could get to me they would at least make me think they will kill me, but that is one reason not to give one’s name. I am not in this to hurt anyone, but to cause people to be able to discipher what is going on. The Russians are going to do a job on us by causing hate between the Democrats and Republicans. The Democrats are to nice to do anything mean to the Republicans as they call themselves. However, I think they are actually the extreme right wing. Some could even be Nazis or at least they sound that way. I am fairly conservative in many ways, but I do understand the plight of the poor and needy. My career was working with people who needed an opportunity to do better in life and get them out of a bad situation. Automatically in this country people blame the black for the need for welfare. Guess what, poverty is more prevalent where there are less opportunity for jobs and education or training. So where is that?

            I have a personal theory I’ll share with you. “God helps those who will let him”. We cannot run the show, but let Him do the guiding. By the same token “God loves those who will let Him.” We definitely need Him, it is not the other way around. God likes to hear “thanks”. and as far as caring for the poor, “God promised King David in the old Testament that if David would have compassion for the poor, his (David’s) enemies would never over take him.” That is on a national level as well as personal.

          • Fred Amirault

            I understand, and I pray for the People every day, but I believe that we are in the last days, and we are end times Babylon, since we are the most materialistic nation on Earth. I have studied Revelations, and Daniel many times in the last 23 yearMueller Invetigation. s, Our nation’s turn away from God has been most amaziing to me since my childhood. electing a black President have brought out all of thee racists, Bigots, and even those who abuses women.People have turned into like teenaged thugs, and is now associate with the republican party You can see that Trump, especially when something bad happens especially attributible to him works overtime to try to greater divide this nation People will not say anything, but you can tell when something new happens in the Mueller investigation,Trump is back at going to Nuke North Korea. He will do this to try to stop the Mueller investigation, and to give his family and him a chance to Flee to Moscow. Hid people will still believe in him as Bombs drop all over this country.

          • Brent

            Fred…you deffinitely are not an American, stop pretending to be one.
            1. If you like your doctor you can keep him.
            2. If you like your plan you can keep it.
            3. The ACA will make healthcare more affordable.
            4. The ACA will lower your premiums up to $2,500 per year.
            5. No family making less than $250k will pay more in taxes.
            6. Obozo said he would not sign a health plan that adds to the deficit…
            (it might seem like i’m harping on Obamacare, however, the sheer volume of lies means that it was absolutely deliberate…unless you really believe he is that incompetent. Pick one because you cannot have it both ways)
            7. His published birth certificate is a forgery. What that means is unknown, but the one he put online is a fake.
            8. He said he found out about hitlery’s private email server when everyone else did, but he sent and rec’d email from it.
            9. I cannot count the number of times he talked about the amazing economic recovery we made after the great recession which was a complete falsehood.
            10.Not exactly a lie, but he traded 4 high profile terrorists for one army deserter that was just convicted this month for desertion. How stupid can you be…or was that deliberate too?
            11.Obama said the Iran nuke deal would allow Iran to “Get right with the world” but in reality they went on to display many traits (ransoming our sailors and more) that indicate they have no intention of getting right with the world. The deal also allowed them to maintain advanced research capabilities.
            12.When campaigning he promised the most transparent administration ever. Then we get Fast-n-Furious, holder is held in contempt of congress, lerner is ousted from the IRS for her chananigans and replaced by another chenanigan artist and the list goes on and on and on and on and on.
            13.After promising the most transparent regime in history, he fired Inspector General Walpin when Walpin identified the Sacramento mayor was corrupt (but was an obama supporter, so that’s OK then.)
            14.Part of that transparency was to put the ACA negotiations on C-SPAN…which turned out to be a joke because your friend Nancy Piglosi is later famously quoted as saying that they’ll have to pass it to see what’s in it.
            15.He said he believes in public education but sent his daughters to private schools )even before being president.)
            16.You’ll undoubtedly say he didn’t know, but obozo said there is no voter fraud, but it turns out that NH had enough likely fraud to actually flip the state blue and seat a demoncrap senator. If there’s no voter fraud, why all the stink about looking into it???

            There’s so many more it really shows you don’t know anything about anything calling me out on it. As for Trumps lie about the Birth Certificate…I think that calling it off was more of a politically calculated move to avoid the issue because he realized we’ll never get to see the real original birth certificate. There’s too much at stake for that thing to ever see the light of day. But there are way too many irregularities surrounding the issue to blindly take it as legitimate. The biggest of which being Obozo’s attorneys were out in force to squelch every investigation on the subject.

          • Fred Amirault

            Brent Well, you are for a guy who Calls Vladamir Putin his close fiend. You knnw that Russia is our sworn enemies on each side. , You follow the Guy that can not say a bad Word about Putin, but he jumps all over Putin’s friends Iran. who do you think helped Iran become nuclear Communist Russia, and Putin wants to remake the Soviet Union, Yet, it is me who is unAmerican. What are you smoking. Trump received over $60 million from Russia. Yet, it is I who are unAmerican. It s Trump who goes around picking fights You are a liar Brent, I hope that the nuke North Korea strikes first is far enough from you house so you can see it, and watch your family die,before you do. T his is what is going to happen to you Friend of Russia

          • Brent

            Fred, I’m not aware he called Vlad his friend…I’m aware he said he respected him. I believe you watch way too much CNN. And that’s a large part of your problem. If you’re getting more than half of your news from the MSM at this point, you’re beyond hope. If you haven’t seen by now that they’re absolutely partial, and actively covering anti-American activity then you’re either wilfully blind or dangerously close to being hopeless which I hope is not the case.

            And i’m ceratin that Trump never leaned over into Vlad’s ear and whispered, “after the election i’ll have more flexability.”
            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XsFR8DbSRQE
            And hitlery allows the sale of Uranium 1 to Russians. Exactly how willfully blind do you have to be to still think Trump is the one colluding?

            BTW, you’re much better off not discussing allowing rogue countries to become nuclear powers. Clinton signed a deal with NK and that’s why we’re in the pickle we’re in right now. Of course Bush could have nipped that in the bud too, but he’s a pathetic excuse for a president too. And once again, the guy that campaigned on being the most transparent president ever put into place the Iran nuke deal. The very deal that (GET THIS) nobody could read before hand, and senators had to go into a room without any electronic equipment on their person, to view this treaty, and could not remove any notes about this treaty from the room. Good God Fred! How blind are you? We now have the gift of hind sight in regard to NK and you’re blindly embracing leftists. What is wrong with you?

            I don’t know anything about the stuff you’re talking about Trump getting $60M from Russia. What I am certain about is that if there is ABSOLUTELY ANYTHING that anybody on the left can use to impeach Trump, it’ll absolutely come out…and it would be a miracle that it hasn’t already hit…or there just plain isn’t anything.

            I’m a Liar???? Wow, skipped the racist tag eh? Well, that label is getting old anyway isn’t it LOL. And if that Nuke hits, you can thank Obozo and Clinton for it. But you are one sick puppy.

            I’m not necessarily a friend of Russia. I do think we have some common ground there, as they also have a growing muslim problem, just like us.

            And BTW, I didn’t say you are “unAmerican,” I said you ARE NOT AN AMERICAN. There’s a difference, figure it out. Here’s a hint. You created your Disqus account less than a month ago…posted some comments on an article that are religious in nature and not alligned left at all, and you’re a flaming leftist here. Furthermore you’re previous postings on the other article indicate you’re a Christian…but here’s a quote, from you, that you put up immediately above this post:

            “I hope that the nuke North Korea strikes first is far enough from you house so you can see it, and watch your family die,before you do.”

            If you’re a Christian, you’re going to have a difficult time justifying a line like that to anybody. But hey, your sentence structure and thoughts are much more clearly typed out today. Congratulations on the instantaneous improvement in your English language abilities.

          • Fred Amirault

            well, he did during the G5 meetings, and He continually attacks Iran, while Russia supplies them with everything they need Nuclearly, I was attacked for Clinton, and Obama selling Russia were selling plutomium to Russia, but they ignore that Reagan started it. They refuse to even comment. ,and they were just following the contract that Reagan made. It was also done by both of the Bush presidencies, again, with no comment because they were NOT Liberal. I take everything in its merit. I not not just look at liberal news. But right now Fox is nothing more than propaganda, period.

            Hate to interrupt this conversation but your last name looks French to me. If so, who can better tell another about governments, not only here but all over the world. So many of the French keep up with great detail information about the actions of the world.

            My descendant from France came to Nova Scotia back in the late 1700’s. And I have been disabled for most of this century. So, I really do not have that much to do than listen to the news. I have heard Donald Trump’s lies forever, and these followers seem to be no better than rednecks , and they Love Trumps adversarial style He has give enough hints in what he will do If Mueller is about to snare him, and then is start a Nuclear war, using that as his way to escape to Russia where he will get a hero’s welcome for helping to destroy Russia’s great enemy. a different fate will await Putin,and Trump when they attempt to attack Israel as Israel’s mega Ally will totally defeat Russia, and their Muslim allies, and God destroys each country except Palestine. as Israel will take over that territory and what little people who have survived..

            Thanks for pointing that our, although, I doubt that anyone will say you are right. Someone below, said that Obama lied more, well, that cannot be true because Obama was not on twitter and grabbing every opportunity to say something as Trump has done. I bet he has made more speeches in these seven or 8 month than Obama did his entire 8 yrs. My husband calls Trump motor mouth.

          • Btty

            I’ll answer it. YOU’RE a liar! What lies has he told? No President in history has lied and damaged this country like obunghole has.

          • Fred Amirault

            Really. Just Monday, he lied by saying that he called the family of all of those service men who lost their life in action. He finally called the wife of a man who died 2 weeks ago, and talked so Callously that it would be better if he had not called. No lies? How about the one that his family talked to the Russians at Trump Before the election . He said no for months and finally admitted to it One time, or the other, he had to have lied. What about Obama bugging Trump before the election. He claimed that he had proof, but it must not have made it to attorney General Jeff Sessions, for he called of the investigation,and said it never happened. Trump was asked about it then and he refused to even answer. He should have fired Sessions within a day . There are 3 examples of his Lies. Do you think he should cut off relief to Puerto Rico. ??

          • Dead Toad

            Oh my God the fake News liberal media is eating your mind. Save yourself and quit watching liberal media it’s all fake. Focus on accurate news outlets please, such as this one.

          • Fred Amirault

            Trump must have hypnotized you man. All of you idiots believe his every word.I do not need the Liberal Media, though I do love how deep Rachel Maddow investigates things before she reports it. But, I do not like everything about her show. See, I am NOT a liberal. I have a strong belief in God, but i do not not believe in all of these pagan Christian churches and I believe n helping the poor, and not like you who try to help all of the poor to be homeless and destroy your hospitals. I just do not believe in the homosexul causes. treat them like everyone else,but nothing special. who have to care for these people whether they can pay or not. I know, you can start war with the 70% who are against Trump. Do you know that Trump claimed to have talked to the relatives of every soldier killed in combat during his presidency. 50% is not all, and when he blames the soldier, he might as well not call. But he lied again. His promise to give America a better health plan?? It was only good to save money and cut Millions from having insurance so he can cut taxes for the rich. Listen to every word. Listen when he brag about groping women. Listen when he say that He can not stay in Puerto Rico for every, what has means is more than a month. Do you know that Fema is still helping some people affected by super storm Sandy?? and Trump wants to leave Puerto Rico because the Mayor of San Juan scolded him You like babies?? President Trump acting like a baby because someone yelled at him. You guys are ridicuous

          • You must think that the last President was not a MUSLIM and was going to bring in a MILLINON more MUSLIMs to tear our country apart .If this is true then your dumber than a box of rocks and slower than a herd of turtles !

          • Fred Amirault

            Where are they?All of the Muslims that he brought here?? But, see you treat him like he did nothing good at all. Those people that you want to expel are not Muslims, but Mexicans. their parents are here,and they were bought basically as Babies. Some have, and are serving our country and all who are not in school or the Military actually have decent jobs. See, wired that is what you are wired to all of Trump’s fake news. And america is a country of immigrants Quit being bigoted Your President is a liar

          • Frank Kahn

            Actually Dearborn Michigan is on hot bed of the Muslims that Obama ALLOWED into the country. You can, easily, find information about the problems surrounding their presence. The person wired was referring to Muslims, maybe you think Mexicans are Muslim? As for your portrayal of the so called dreamers, that is liberal hogwash that is used to make the ILLEGAL aliens seem more palatable. The word ILLEGAL indicates that there was a law broken when they entered the country. The only way to eliminate that problem is for them to leave and come back by normally accepted, LEGAL, methods. That may be inconvenient to them, but it is what is in the best interest of everyone.

            And 100 of Muslims are out to destroy America, Right Frank? D d you go there, and count every one of them??Just go on with a gun like the man did in Vegas. Trump is sure drawing all of the haters, and all of his governing is all done by him, can not get Congress.to do anything.

          • Frank Kahn

            Not sure who or what you are. But, your post makes no sense.

            “And 100 of Muslims are out to destroy America, Right Frank? ”

            Did you mean 100% or just 100 muslims? Destroy America? The entire premise of Islam is diametrically opposed to Christianity and all of western culture. If the Muslims take over it will be the end of what we consider to be the United States of America.

            “D d you go there, and count every one of them??Just go on with a gun like the man did in Vegas.”

            No idea what you think you are trying to insinuate. The Las Vegas shooting was carried out against conservative concert attendee’s. None of the killed or wounded were Muslims. At least if they were Muslims that was not the reason they were targeted.

            ” Trump is sure drawing all of the haters, and all of his governing is all done by him, can not get Congress.to do anything.”

            HATERS? YES, BY WINNING THE PRESIDENCY HE HAS BROUGHT OUT ALL THE LIBERAL HATERS. LIBERALS HAVE BEEN RIOTING AND EVERYTHING THEY CAN THINK OF TO SHOW THEY THINK THEY WERE CHEATED OUT OF HAVING A WOMAN PRESIDENT. If you check the facts, you will find that it is groups supporting, and supported by, the liberal progressives that have instigated all the violent clashes with Trump supporters.

            And, I am including a link to show the problem with letting Muslims feel they own some area in our country.

          • Frank Kahn

            He goes out and does what he was elected to do. He leads the country according to the Constitution. He does not push liberal BS like queers and abortion and letting terrorists into the country. He does not approve of Mexicans, and others, coming into our country illegally. He is against the racism being spewed out by liberals focused towards white people. He is for Christian values. He is for the citizens of this nation. The fact that liberal fanatics go berserk and start violent protest because of these things is not Trumps fault. It is the fault of your buddies on the far left wing of society.

          • Fred Amirault

            I don”t know what you are looking at. Trump is a master Racist, and bigot, and he is no conservative. Remember, he ran 3 times as a democrat. Now, he ran for Putin. Funny he attacks Iran, and North Korea, ,but never a bad words for Russia. His words over the Russia forever changed Why did the campaign lie about meeting them for 6 months Maybe to see how his followers will react. He hs got ll of you buffaloed.Sadly, it will end up with nukes being dropped all over the USA, and Trump sitting in Russia laughing at us. He is tearing down our infrastructure ,but not to build it better. ust to help on our destruction. Trump knows not the constitution, since he still runs his companies under he constitution are to bw put in receivorship, and you are not to make an decisions that will favor your company Trump has broken that since day one, The man can not take an onze of criticism, and is more of a divider in chief than anything. He demands loyalty to Him.and not the constitution. This is what dictators do

          • Frank Kahn

            Phew, the stink is rising!

            “I don”t know what you are looking at. Trump is a master Racist, and bigot, and he is no conservative.”

            “MASTER RACIST”?
            Would that make you a peon racist? Please feel free to identify 10 things that are positively racist about Trump. Your opinion of his motivation for some policy is not acceptable. Mexicans are not a race. Keeping them from invading our country is not racist. Muslims are not a race. Keeping terrorists out of our country is not racist. Antifa is a terrorist organization that targets white people. Black Lives Matter is a racist, fascist, organization that targets white people. Saying that they are responsible for the violence they participate in is not racist. So, please, little one, tell us all your private personal little whiny tantrum problems with Trump.

            Remember, he ran 3 times as a democrat. Now, he ran for Putin.”

            A bigoted, biased opinion. Trump ran as a Republican. He started out as an independent. He chose the Republican party so he could defeat the Communist loving, treasonous Hillary Clinton. Putin had nothing to do with it.

            ” Funny “he attacks Iran, and North Korea, ,but never a bad words for Russia. His words over the Russia forever changed Why did the campaign lie about meeting them for 6 months Maybe to see how his followers will react. ”

            He has not said a bad word about you either. Is it because he is doing what you want? Maybe you don’t have the ability to understand reality. Russia will, if we leave them alone, not be a threat to our safety. Iran has vowed to destroy Israel and the United States. They are building nuclear weapons, to place on their ballistic missiles. The had a good buddy in Obama. Obama never said a bad word about Iran. North Korea is also building nuclear weapons to put on ballistic missiles to fire at us. Obama said China should do something about them. Trump said he would if little rocket man made any sudden moves.

            “He hs got ll of you buffaloed.Sadly, it will end up with nukes being dropped all over the USA, and Trump sitting in Russia laughing at us. ”

            You seem to be stuck in a strange mirrored world. Obama gave Iran the money and freedom to build nuclear bombs. Hillary Clinton sold Vladimir Putin 20% of our nations Uranium. You know the stuff they use to make atomic bombs from. And, it was Hillary’s philandering husband that helped the North Koreans achieve their ability in atomic bombs. Sounds like Obama and the Clinton’s are responsible for any threat of nukes being dropped all over our country. Also, in case you forgot to get the message, there is no evidence of Trump and Putin collusion to defeat the worthless Hillary.

            “He is tearing down our infrastructure ,but not to build it better.”

            Maybe I missed the news report on this one. What infrastructure is he tearing down?

            ” ust to help on our destruction. Trump knows not the constitution, since he still runs his companies under he constitution are to bw put in receivorship, and you are not to make an decisions that will favor your company Trump has broken that since day one, ”

            And, Obama never allowed the Constitution to prevent him from destroying the nation for 8 years. And, Obama did much more serious and lasting damage that Trump keeping control of HIS OWN COMPANIES while president will do.

            “The man can not take an onze of criticism, and is more of a divider in chief than anything.”

            Maybe you need to learn the difference between criticism and slander. If the media would play by the rules, reporting the facts and the truth, not their opinions and speculation, then Trump would have no reason to jump down their throats for their lies.

            ” He demands loyalty to Him.and not the constitution. This is what dictators do”

            And Obama said F the constitution and F the citizens, we will run this country my way for my personal enjoyment.

          • socialsavvy

            I have not heard the word “oaf” used since my mother used it. She learned it from her Norwegian parents, as well as a few other polite descriptive names. The proposition about the Muslims coming here under Obama with his approval is amazing. Have you been able to locate anything of validity to that accusation? I think what people are referring to has to be the refugee agreement we had with other nations who are taking in political refugees. Nothing is perfect, but not to assist in the effort to protect the people out of Syria would be critical to our reputation. America is very special and we should stick together than than have the hate and disregard for others that has come about.

            Why, I wonder. would anyone say Obama is at fault for the prejudices in this country. It is amazing! He seemed to be fair and wanted to help all of us. There is a story about the night of the inauguration that makes one hurt. I listened to a young reporter who overheard a large number of Republican Congressmen who met for cocktails, rather than going to the inauguration ball. The discussion was of Obama. They discussed telling Obama that he would never get a bill through congress, and even referring to him as “boy”. Talk about Christian Republicans.? The reporter telling this swore to his information. It was not Obama who caused the prejudices in this country. People have to cover up their sins by passing it to another. That is like Trump does.

Unless you are rich, you get a few crumbs that in a bout 2 years, you will pay back with so much Interest that you will lose your house. He lies. and knows nothing besides. He has already ruined the stat department,and the EPA, and turned his backs on his allies for Russia, and Vladamir Putin . Why does he not jump in the country that set up both Iran, and in their Nuclear arsenal. Russia,and Not China. So, he ignores the bill that he signed. Will you still believe in him when the Nukes are falling?? Likely,yes, you will blame Clinton, and Obama when the stories about Russian collusion are found to be true, and not the fake news that Liar Trump claims If you do not like it start a war for the majority who does not believe him??

            Great Donald Trump, the divider on chief who kills his own soldiers, and then instead of sending condolences disrespects her purposely to deflect the issue to this, and not the Murder that he committed be dividing a great ally in the fight against ISIS, which he s supposedly very interested it. But it seems what he is most interested in is making the country the fractured states of America. Seem like they issues take place 5 times a week. He has he improved the infrastructure where you live , It too was a campaign promise. I am conservative, but I am more for good government and not a man who divides u more every day, and is the biggest liar that have ever known, for 6 months, He said that no one from his campaign, or administration ever had contact with ussians,while he was holding meetings at Trump Tower. I am not a liberal, but I am also not a hater, and Trump is a hater, and he entire reason to become president is to work fr His revered Putin and help take the USA down

Something bad happens on his watch, and out comes a new diversion. His call to this woman was purposefully done just the way that congresswoman said, first because they were black and second to make the People forget that his actions caused their deaths, and he knows that. why did he refuse to even answer one question for 2 weeks. Never seen a president do that before. From Eisenhower on

      Roger that, but I wish there were some patriotic players that would take the stance that if the NFL can’t force these bums to stand, then they can’t force others to play, then just stay home on game day to not slap their wives around, have a BBQ with the neighbors and just be good people. That would really empty the stands and get the rest back to at least pretending to respect the flag. It would just be nice to see, but still won’t get me back.

Of course he also said his investigators found some “incredible” things in Hawaii about Obama and he said he was going to release his taxes. I am also still waiting on the proof of wiretapping. Bottom line you are willing to call the widow of a fallen soldier who served this country and the mother of that widow liars? They both confirm the story. So either Trump is lying or they are both lying.

          • Richard S.

            Do you really believe that the President would take the time to purposely call the widow with the intent on showing disrespect just so the media can pounce on him.

          • socialsavvy

            Trump was pissed because he had to be made to have contact with these families. I don’t understand what caused him to wait so long. Perhaps he had an intent to causes chaos. He is so good at causing disruption to get attention and then blame the media for giving him bad press. Am I the only one who sees this man’s character flaw and know the name.
            No I won’t tell. Figure it out for yourselves.

          • socialsavvy

            Yes, it is something Trump cannot help, he wanted to be the center of attention and this way he is and he turns it around as he usually does to make himself look like the victim as he always does. He can blame the media, or the persons he spoke with or the whole UNIted States, but if I were to bet on who was lying!!! Really, when has Trump NOT LIED?

          • Brent

            What was the contingency on releasing his taxes?

          • socialsavvy

            You can bet those tax returns are under lock and key to get to. No way will the tax lawyers who keep this information ever going to give it unless Trump concurs. And yes, there are big secrets in the tax returns. One, I bet he is not nearly as rich as he claims, and he has other things that he doesn’t want people to know.

          • Brent

            One year of his tax returns were already leaked, and it wasn’t done by any of the people you just mentioned. Also, none of your suppositions were correct. If you really gave a rats behind about the subject, you’d know that already and know all your “ideas” were wrong already.

          • Hope you listened to Kelly last as you are correct both are lying !

          • Mike

            I hope you did because General Kelly confirmed that Trump said exactly what the Congresswoman and his widow and mother said he did. Yes he gave those lines to President Trump, and did not believe it would be controversial. Even still, President Trump has no empathy and it was taken that way. Once again Trump was shown as the liar he has been throughout his Presidency.

          • General Kelly also said everything that was said was totally appropriate and the congress person from Miami only took parts to repeat taking it out of context to seem callous . Just a demorat looking for a spot light like the rest of the globalist. Yes and the rest are opinions only !

          • Mike

            The bottom line both the soldier’s widow and his mother who also heard the call felt President Trump was being disrespectful. Trump also lied saying he never used those words, but as General Kelly stated he did in fact use those words. Trump lied as he does almost every day. I want to stress again that it was not just the Congresswoman who believed Trump was inappropriate and disrespectful as it was the soldier’s wife and mother who also heard the call. Given that General Kelly has confirmed that Trump used those words how can you defend a man who blatantly lied about the words he used and trust that he was appropriate on the call? Keep putting your head in the sand like a good Trump sheeple.
            The sad part is this would have blown over if President Trump had any compassion and just come out and said I am sorry if I offended anyone as that was not my intention. I will keep the call private but I was attempting to convey my heartfelt remorse for her husband’s death and if that was not conveyed in the best manner it was not intentional. I respect all of the men and women who have bravely fought and died for this country etc.
            There would have been some backlash, but most people would have just let the matter fade away, but instead he lied about what he said and attacked the Congresswoman and by extension the widow and the fallen soldier’s mother as they have confirmed and verified the Congresswoman’s story.

          • I like TRUMP better than I like Muslims with an agenda to over run America. I will take him any day over Barack Hussein Obama the American traitor . Obama lied for 8 years and almost started a race war that really would have ended badly. Talk to the WALL as you sound like the rest anything to discredit makes you happy .

            Spotlight is one word, as is Congressperson…and the word globalist can only mean one person.

            Too stupid to add an ‘s’ to a word? You must be a pathetic drunk that has damaged his brain.

          • Chi Sam

            Your inability to recall the words Congressperson and spotlight suggests you may be a bit incompetent. Given that one need only add an ‘s’ to the word globalist to make the word represent more than one person, it’s fair to call you stupid.

            How do you know, were you there?

Why don’t you get your facts straight before you perpetuate a lie All you lefties are disgusting.

          • Mike

            So you are calling the widow and the widow’s mother a liar. In reality no one except Trump has actually said he did not say those words. In fact Ms Huckabee Sander did not deny President Trump said those words that her husband knew what he signed up for, but in her belief it was taken out of context. I have researched things. Have you or do you just listen to Trump and only Trump?

          • Sharon Chesher

            Fake news!!! Unlike the previous president, Trump would NEVER DISRESPECT
            a fallen hero or his family, just as he would NEVER disrespect our Flag, our
            National Anthem or our Constitution!!

          • Mike

            so then you believe the widow of a fallen soldier and her mother are lying?

          • Terry

            Yes I do believe its the democrats at it again. im sure they are taking care of her.

          • Brent

            Interesting question. With SO MANY of the things that have come out of leftist politicians mouths being bold faced lies, it’s mystifying you would immediately tend to favor truth in anything coming from the left.

            Trump is far from perfect. His past shows he has a history of being a bit of a pig. He has spoken a bit quickly and possibly out of turn on a few occasions, but strangely his words are more correct than not. Yet you still favor leftists. Let me guess, you believe hitlery broke no laws sending and receiving above TOP SECRET intel with her bathroom email server too right?

          • socialsavvy

            NO!

            They’re black…which means they do not fully grasp language concepts.

          • socialsavvy

            THAT IS B.S. Trump has disrespected his followers and the national news when he cursed any American Citizen. He has zero for morals when it comes to caring for others feelings. He is a proven liar on a regular if not constant basis.
            ONe thing you can be sure of is that Trump will tell you he has never disrespected the flag and the anthem. He likely has not because that is one area that he has no dealings on a human level. Anyway it would look really bad would it not? Then it would be about Trump and as long as no human is involved in his devotion to flag and anthem, then he will not make any mistake.
            How he feels? Could be he is genuine, after all he owes the US a huge indebtedness for not having to enlist during Vietnam. He got to stay at home, make millions and have billions of people working for him, and he listened to Johnny Carson, those were his words. America is great to different people for different things. I had the opportunity to work at two jobs and put myself through college due to financial situations with my parent. (my Mom was a widow). I still consider that this opportunity was the greatest thing in the world for me. I did not become rich because of my efforts, but the riches I gained came in the form of helping other people advance in life to a better situation. I got paid for doing my job and I am happy with what I have gained monetarily in life.

          • socialsavvy

            That is an excellent idea. Trump just cannot help himself from somehow trying to be the center of attention. Now he will be crying because people are picking on HIM. If you can get him to move on into the Realestate business where we can all know that is what he is doing, he can stay in the US. otherwise he needs to learn horseback riding and visit with his family in tow, with his friend Putin and associates.
            you had a good post!

      • socialsavvy

        This disagreement has nothing to do with be a patriot. It has to do with drawing attention to the injustices in law enforcement. Again, solve it by posting on the new electronic bill boards and put it everywhere. Trump just could not keep his face shut and do his own business. He causes chaos, a trait know to some very bad people.

    • David

      Don’t get mad, get even! Stop contributing ANYTHING to the NFL. Should’ve happened a long time ago.

      • Janelle

        Apparently that is happening and being felt. Good and RG blathering about meeting with the players and addressing their concerns?!!!!
        These are grown men. They are aware that there are players who are involved in community outreach programs and mentoring. What is preventing them from doing something similar?

    • TrueRedWhiteandBlue

      Who really WANTS to get them on their feet again? In my opinion why would anyone want to watch anyone of their ilk who has done what they are doing and have been doing and then if they start standing again b/c of money watch them play????? No thanks……they can kneel from now on to eternity and I wouldn’t care anymore.

      • Janelle

        The people who are offended by their behavior want them on their feet. An apology to the military wouldn’t hurt either.

        • TrueRedWhiteandBlue

          I agree with you, but if they don’t care enough to do that why should we care about them or what they do or don’t do? They are too ignorant to fully understand even what they’re kneeling for, so you know they will never apologize. I would love for them to do so but I don’t think it will never happen and if it ever did I’m afraid it would be their pocket books driving their actions and words and nothing more.

          • Janelle

            True, who was it that said if you weren’t a liberal when you were young, you had no heart and if you weren’t a conservative when you were forty, you had no brain.

            Do you understand exactly why the football players are kneeling? likely not. You bet they know you moron.

        • socialsavvy

          When Trump apologizes to the families of the fallen soldiers, families, and admits he said just what he did, then the men knelling regarding police injustices can get up and put their stuff on bill boards. Trump can go back to the white house and wait for the next opportunity to do what he does best!

You realize Pence was crucified and called his protest a “stunt”f or merely protestation and his own 1st Amendment rights. The bigotry, chauvenism and intolerance is appalling.

        • socialsavvy

          Janelle, Fred is very correct. Obviously he reads a lot and sees more than Fox News, Alex Jones, and Rush Limbag. You have not figured out that Trump is such an actor, that upstaging is a part of his way of life. He has a lot of other character flaws too.

          • Janelle

            If I want your opinion, I will give it to you.

      • Brent

        Sounds like youre a couple moves behind Fred. Trump isn’t worried about this NFL silliness. He actually managed re-direct a lot of the leftist narrative of destroying the glue that holds this country together, into focusing on the unity of our national symbols despite (falsely) perceived grievances. And Janelle’s right on, when the league decides that they’ve lost enough cash flow things will change. They actually slit their own necks. By not fining the boy with the identity crisis (kaperschmuck) when he took the field in a non-conforming uniform and failed to stand.

        And as for the rest, I don’t think anybody knows what you’re talking about.

        • socialsavvy

          Trump misrepresented the issue. He changed the concept of the issue and made it about honoring the anthem and flag. That was not the issue and everyone knew it. Trump just cannot stand not to be the center of attention and he is a jack-ass for doing what he did.

          • Brent

            The issue never really existed. As i’ve said, all but one of the high profile cases of police misconduct was thoroughly debunked. In that one case, the officer was convicted and punished AS HE SHOULD BE.

            The issue needed to changed because it’s a bunch of make up crap. And the made up crap is being brought up over and over and over again. It’s being done to disolve the glue that holds our country together and you’re eating it up like bacon.

            The subject needed changing. I’m not saying that there aren’t legitimate cases out there, but all of these bogus cases, and the unjust attention they’re given, cheapen and demean the legitimate ones.

          • socialsavvy

            Nicely said. My husband and I have a way to settle unsettled discussions. We kiss and make up. Some days when I wake up, I wish all political issues and international confrontations could be settled by the leaders to kiss and make up. Of course that is silly to think of such, and I am laughing at the thought of Trump and Un making up. Life is never so simple. We as Americans could and should be so grown up that we talk, and not shoot. That would be an answer to a lot of blood shed. Anyway, how about billboards to advertise the problem. Keep captive audiences from having to choose sides. Keeps the Pres off of the TV cursing people, we’d hope.

            Seems like the thing we need to focus on is the NK situation. I take Un’s threats seriously. The Orientals are very intelligent and capable of doing real damage. It is always wise to pick your fights, and this is one we do not need.

    • Brent

      Very well put Janelle, and 100% true.

      • Janelle

        Brent, I have no interest in the game. Too much hype, too many commercials and now, this discourtesy towards the flag and anthem.
        They are young. They will learn.

        • Brent

          Yes. To be honest, I never got into football or any sports really. I watched a little baseball before the strike. No big loss to me, but the sheer insolence of these “athletes” making multi-million $ / year contracts because this country is the best, turning and essentially spitting on our flag is insane.

          LOL, worst thing i’ve had to give up over this leftist actevism is Starbucks…Oh well…it was dumb paying that much for coffee anyway 🙂

            Agree, Brent…..try the Nespresso system. If you like really good coffee, it beats Starbucks!

        • socialsavvy

          It was Trump who decided that the men were not honoring the anthem. If he could keep out of social situations a bit better none of this would have happened and the wrong information would not be out there. Trump just could not stand for there to be so much interest in the injustices done to certain people. He had to get into it so the media would show where he ws wrong and he could cry about fake news. That is nothing, there is an on going recording and history of the Trump lies. He says this!…oh no, he said “that”. And it is all on tapes meaning videos. And the fake news actually belongs to Trump as he speaks.

You want a guy who is as we speak destroying this country, go have at it He has already given to Russia our Military secrets. Why do you think only Russian diplomats were in the room when that happened? And listen when there is new news from the Mueller investigation. Trump always seems to be talking up nuking North Korea, then. Russia will deactivate our bombs while making sure that North Korea’s, and there’s do not miss. Likely will add EMP”s just to make sure we head back to the 1800’s. Trump will be gone with his family to Russia, and boy will they have laughs on you. This man has been dividing the people for a couple of years now. You are what? In your 20’s I have seen others. I have seen them destroy what were great companies fir their own selfish desires just like Trump.He has never been for anyone outside of his family. and why does he attack Iran, a well known Russian Ally. they supplied
          Iran with all they have as far as anything Nuclear is concerned. The same thing goes for North Korea. Why has he said nothing to Russia about this?? It is a con game, and you are taking it hook, line,and sinker. it can only be a con game on his part, and no one believes that Well, I am sure, my live will end soon. With my problems, my time should really come fast now. I tried to warn you all If I said nothing I would feel that the blood will be on my hands for keeping this to myself.

  • Maggietish

    Another twisted article where the opening line is that the president is fuming. How do they know that? The players can make their own decision of what they want to do as can the American people, viewers, sponsors and supporters. The one thing that’s missing is an American taxpayers pay for those games to go on the use of the stadiums and since this country is being so disrespected by these players along with our flag, anthem, police officers and our military no American taxpayer dollars should continue to be contributed to any NFL games. These players have made millions of dollars in a country that they obviously hate. They have a right to protest just as we have a right to boycott. One wonders why they would want to continue to live in the United States especially when they have millions of dollars and certainly have enough money to move to another country where they will obviously be much happier. So why are they still here? No one will miss them. Good riddance!

      The NFL does not have federal tax exempt status. The tax breaks are a local or state issue and if you do not want your local government or state to give tax breaks to businesses such as the NFL that is fine, but that is not a matter for the federal government.

          Have you also destroyed any Trump campaign merchandise you purchased or past clothing or other items that you may have bought from Trump? I assume you also no longer support Trump since he has done far worse from disrespecting POWs, a widow of a fallen soldier, a Gold Star family etc.

            So it was the left on the phone with the widow and not President Trump who told her that her what happened to her husband is what he signed up for. It was the Left and not President Trump who in a televised interview said that McCain was not a war hero because he preferred those that were not captured as opposed to POWs; It was the Left that when asked about which foot had the bone spurs answered the reporter with “you will have to check the records.”

          • JHW

            McCain was not a war hero. McCain is no more a war hero then anyone who got drafted and went to Vietnam.

          • Mike

            he was held in a Vietcong prison for over five years and endured torture and humiliation. also I consider anyone who served a war hero.

          • katfan

            Funny, but that is actually what President Trump said, if you bothered to listen to his comments and not what the media said about his comments.

          • TrueRedWhiteandBlue

            He served all right, giving up his other captives so he would get better treatment. He served HIMSELF and that is ALL he served.

          • Mike

            He did not. Please stop believing all the ridiculous crap. Senator McCain served his country and did so with distinction.

          • TrueRedWhiteandBlue

            I’m not the one with kool-aid breath.

          • Richard S.

            It was very distinctive when he got mad because he had to wait in line for take off on a carrier, shut his engine down, climbed out of the cockpit and inadvertently tripped the bomb release switch causing massive explosion and the deaths of a 133 sailors, and he retreated below deck and watched on closed circuit TV while the men on deck fought the fires caused by McCain’s very distinction? Did you know that Mike? Look it up, it’s all documented. You did know his daddy was an Admiral didn’t you?

          • katfan

            The account of the latest phone call with President Trump and the widow was told by a Democrat. And, yes, it is what he signed up for. President Trump was correct when he said that he was not a hero “because he was a POW”.Millions served and were not captured, but that does not diminish their service. John MCCain served and for that he deserves credit for honoring the nation. The fact that he was captured does not increase his status. You obviously get all your opinions from the leftist media, which is far from accurate.

            McCain was a songbird, what Pres. Trump said was taken out of context and the entire statement omitted and anyone with physical problems get a deferment. You need to know ALL the facts before you spout off.

          • Mike

            Did McCain eventually give into torture and tell the Vietcong what they wanted to hear? Yes as did virtually every soldier there. If you were tortured every day you would not last. No one would. You are correct if you have a medical problem you would get a deferment, but of course people would know the medical ailment that was afflicting them. Trump cannot even remember which foot had the alleged bone spurs.

          So kneeling during the anthem is wrong, but disrespecting a Gold Star family, POWs, dodging the draft and now insulting a widow who lost her husband in service to this country is alright? I am fine if you choose not to support the NFL due to the players kneeling, but why then do you support President Trump?

            What never happened? All of the items I listed did happen. We can debate whether he dodged the draft or had a legitimate bone spur in his foot although Trump himself cannot remember what foot it was. The remainder of those items all did happen. https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/right-turn/wp/2016/07/31/trumps-temper-tantrum-freaks-out-u-s-allies/?utm_term=.0a8311663a16

            Mikey……I, for one, am tired of your anti-Trump garbage. Why don’t you just leave and spout in a forum where people give a flying rat’s patootie about what you say over and over?? I am just tired of it and that dead horse you are beating is NOT going to rise and run.

          • Mike

            I will continue to share openly and honestly about our President in the hopes that even just one person can finally open their eyes to the man they placed in the White house. The hypocrisy you exhibit is incredible, but the best way to stand up against it is to be counted against it in every forum even online where people spew their stupidity over and over again about how great President Trump is.

          • TrueRedWhiteandBlue

            Well…..I guess I’ll just still keep exhibiting what you call my hypocrisy then. I really don’t think you know what “open and honest” really is though.

        • Danwrlca

          This protest concerns racist storm-trooper police shooting black men because they are afraid of people of color.

          Nope. We gotta fight against you folks who want to force and impose your beliefs on the rest of us. So, while you are sitting in your living room on a game day, I assume you stand at attention during the playing of the Anthem? I’d say NOT. You are probably man-sprawled out on your sofa with a beer in one hand a the chips in the other. Hypocrites!

      • katfan

        If you had served you would think differently. I served 30 years. To me they are disrespecting the nation, the national anthem and every person who ever served, defending the right of these worthless citizens. What do they do for the nation?

        • Mike

          how upset then are you that trump disrespected a Gold Star family, disrespected POWs and was recently disrespectful towards the widow of a fallen soldier? your anger at trump must be palpable with the disrespect he has and continues to show.

          • TrueRedWhiteandBlue

            Geez o petes Mikey……give it up or just leave this forum and the country or SOMETHING. Can you post something different?

          • Mike

            You are the one who elected a man clearly unfit to be President in Trump. A man who needs the services of an adult daycare. If anyone should leave this country it should be you for continuing to stand by a man who is so disrespectful to this country.

          • TrueRedWhiteandBlue

            And what qualifies you to your accusation of PRESIDENT TRUMP? At least you posted something a little different. LOL!

I don’t stand or even pay any attention while the music plays. My choice. It’s just your racist way of attacking black football players.

          • socialsavvy

            No, it is people like you, that is wrong with this country. You choose to be ignorant and mean and say things that make sense only to people who have your values. I advocate freedom and rights for all, but it is obvious that there are no rights for people if they are different form you. As you people mentioned the race card. That is your way of hiding your raciest ideals. Blame someone for standing up for what is correct and for what the real issue is. You and those like you are shameful to the flag and anthem. You just haven’t the intelligence to value all people.
            Now as you angrily reply to me, remember, it makes not difference with me and doesn’t change me, because I am sure of myself in my beliefs of treating people with respect and dignity. Hate goes against my faith, and it wastes time and energy.

          • larry outlaw

            Im not angry or racist,your buddy john taylor calling other people maggots,thats fine with you i guess,as long as it fits your agenda. if you want to protest the cops killing people take it to the police station, its fine to believe what you want, And if anybody is ignorant it is you, everybody should have rights, if you are an up standing citizen, and you do the right things,and respecting the flag (not a piece of cloth) and the national anthem is one of them. and i did not mention the race card,as you so stupidly stated. Now you can go protest all you want just stand for the anthem and flag.

          • socialsavvy

            Mr. Outlaw: thanks for your post. Actually, I am not responsible for what other people call someone else. Mr. Taylor is not a buddy. I agree with some principles he wrote of. However, I do respect the flag, and would not kneel with anyone. First, I’d never get up without help. (age) Secondly, I think that protest should be done by those who are the protesters. I do not like the way some police treat black people. I may understand and even sympathize, but I am not into protesting unless I absolutely knew for a fact the protest is accurate and within in obedience to the law. Does that sound stupid to you. I can disagree with people and not dislike that person. These blogs have cause so much anger and hate in people that it is actually not even wise to participate if you are in anyway different than the premise and majority of contributors.

            We have a black man who is our friend as well as his wife. They have taught their children to always be respectful of the police. They are taught if stopped by the police to always say, “Sir” etc. They are taught to keep their hands within sight at all times and to get out of their car if possible so the camera is on them and their conversation is heard. They are taught to never disobey the law, in traffic violations or in any other way. Not too long ago, this man’s son and his friends were working on his car in front of the friends house where he could not get it started. The cops came by and frisked them, called in to find the owner, and it was listed to the boy. The boy wanted to call his father in order to get help to have the car taken to his house. The cops refused and called a wrecker. The cops took the boy home and I have no doubt when they saw the house the kid lived in they knew they were not talking with a delinquent. This young man was currently enrolled in college. The boy and his friends carried out the respect and obedience to the law and as I understand it, the cops hoped to have conflict with the boys. They refused to let the kid call his father who would have towed the car home safely. No one is perfect. In what ever way the players wish to demonstrate should have been discussed with a lawyer first and then the coaches etc. Whether the players are doing wrong or not had nothing to do with the anthem etc. Did they have the right to demonstrate when and where they did.

            For you, I am far from stupid and certainly hate to see the descention that this nation has experienced via Trump.

            We need to remember that we are all citizens under the constitution and the anthem and flag. We need to be proud to be an American and not proud to hate anyone. (that includes me.)

            If you don’t like the anthem or the flag or our police department, there are other countries you can live in. There are far fewer “unarmed” civilians killed by police officers than police officers losing their lives trying to protect the rest of us.

NOW THE QUESTION COMES UP SHOULD THEY BE SHOT. IF YOU WERE THE COP AND HAD SOMEONE TRY TO RUN OVER YOU WITH THEIR CAR WOULD YOU JUST STAND THERE AND LET THEM DO THAT. THERE ARE BAD PEOPLE IN ALL WALKS OF LIFE AND THEY DESERVE TO BE PUNISHED. I JUST BELIEVE THAT A COP HAS THE RIGHT TO PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM HARM WHLE DEALING WITH THE LOW LIFE PEOPLE THEY HAVE TO COME INTO CONTACT WITH.I STAND FOR OUR FLAG ALWAYS AND WILL NOT WATCH ANY FOOTBALL GAMES ON THE TV,S IN MY HOUSE.

            Have you protested the white on wHite killing .I’m talking about those who are suppose to protect and serve not murder children and women get away with by saying they feared for their life,and yes I have spoken out on black on black crime how the unjust system don’t try very hard too find the killers

          • katfan

            John Taylor, please take some English lessons so we can better understand your comments. I see you served in the U.S. Navy, and I thank you for your service. Is served 30 years in the U.S. Air Force. I did fight for the flag and for the Nation (including the National Anthem). As to your other comment, if someone is gunned down, without provocation, I will be the first to join you in that protest. I believe in our justice system. Police face investigation whenever they discharge their fire arms. Just because you do not believe the verdict is correct, does not mean it is incorrect.

          • John Taylor

            And just because you feel it is right doesn’t mean it is.Do you think O.J. did it I don’t.

          • larry outlaw

            O.j. does not have anything to do with being respectful to our flag and national anthem. Go protest at the police station, if you have a beef with the cops.

          • Richard S.

            Why, because he’s black. You see us saltine crackers don’t just stick up for another saltine just because they are white. If they’ve done wrong we vote to convict. You on the other hand will defend your own race even when they have done wrong. You seem like a hopeless case to me.

          • socialsavvy

            I think that perhaps Mr. Taylor is like a lot of people who are black. For years the blacks have been mistreated by the law. There have been some killed when not breaking the law. I do not know of specific cases where I am, but it is so possible. Some police think that they should be arresting officer, jury and judge as well as executioner. Thus saving the state some money. Not all are as this. But this kind of thing has gone on in communities for so very long that it is very hard for a black person to react other than what he had had to react to for years. Not every thing has changed for the better. I wish it could. But as one of our black friends explained, there are some really bad black guys in the hood. It is only natural for there to be more crime in areas of the more impoverished. Our social ills are not good and I wish with all my heart that we could all learn to love as God loves us and do good.
            My own family have been prejudice and just refused to try to do better. I always think that if you are more successful in life and have what is a better living than another, help him to better, but don’t hate someone for their bad luck.
            However, I think That Trump should lead the nation in an effort of tolerance and honor. He needs to stop lying while he is at it, but he cannot.

          • John Taylor

            that’s what it means to you but not to everyone

            I’ll bet you don’t even know why true Americans honor and pay tribute to our flag. If you need help you can Google it to find out.

          • Richard S.

            Matter of fact, I bet you don’t even know what the colors of our flag represents and what the stars on the flag represents do you John. Our flag tells a great story. You do know that the red color is representative of the blood spilled in the defense of our great nation, And in case you forgot John, no matter what race you are on this earth, we all bleed the same color blood, no exceptions that I’m aware of.

          • Billy Bong

            According to US Code>Title 4> Chapter 1> Section 8> Sub Section (j), “The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing.”

            I know it’s not popular to agree with the law, but this is NOT a banana republic and this is part of the US law

          • Richard S.

            Why don’t you visit Iran, they also don’t like Americans. If you think your rights have been violated why don’t you try another country on for size, like N. Korea, you’d fit in perfect there.

            Can you tell me what exactly they’re protesting please?
            And that “cloth” is our FLAG. With a statement like that I’m seriously questioning whether or not you’re an American.

            Of all these highly publicized cases of police brutality, only 1 of them was not thoroughtly debunked, and in that one case, the pathetic excuse for an officer and dispicable human being was convicted and punished.

            Stop being led around by your nose. Look at the big picture. Why were all of those cases highly publicized and the reasons for their resolution as such largely ignored? And conversely, why has the case of Mohamed Noor swept under the rug so expeditiously? Wake up before it’s too late.

          • socialsavvy

            Great post. I noticed that the first thing below was someone accusing you of using the race card. Too bad that their ignorance is limiting these people in so many ways. I definitely support our military and know they fight for their buddy’s life, they fight for the rights of these people who are writing in this blog. They fight for their commander and chief. God bless them. I honor and admire the military, but I hate war. I am a mother with a grandson who will grow up and I hope it will be to a more peaceful world. I feel so much sorry for those who have lost their hero’s. If it hurts me, and I do not know these people, can you imagine the pain they must have. This is sacrifice for real.

            The death of children on our streets and by those who should be protecting them is sickening and horrible. It is also insane. I am with you on your post.

        let them protest on their time and their dime..not management who signs their game checks…poor entitled black cry-babies protesting the radical myth of cops targeting blacks..fire-em-all.Let them get jobs and work for a living like the rest of us…But no, that would be acting WHITE..better to be a criminal and do time than get an education ,get a job and be like WHITEY..you BLACK BIGOT.

      • Yojinbo67

        No! You are the a-hole. These racist atheletes stil have their First Amendment rights. However, they don’ get to exercise them on their employers time and on the dime of the fans. Most fans pay to see the game not a bunch of underinformed sports entertainers crying about how they were of so dis-enfranchised. The guys make way more money than a hundred educated graduates. And, I would add that they were probably pampered by their coaches and their schools so that they could play and hopefully give their school a winning season. When you listen to many of them speak you realize they were short changed on their education and most likely all their parents saw were dollars signs if they made the pros.

      • katfan

        John Taylor, everyone who works for someone else is subject to the rules of that organization. I served 30 years in the military and I was not allowed to voice my first amendment rights, if it was against one of my superiors. The President is the Commander in Chief of the all military services. President Clinton was far worse than President Trump, but I could not voice my complaints. The NFL is a company who depends on the income from the fans and the sponsors. If that income dries up because of the conduct of certain employees, the NFL has the right to terminate the employment of said employees. This is true in every company in America. In other countries, such conduct might result in much harsher penalties, including death. We live in the greatest nation on earth and protesting against the nation, and more importantly against the military who gives you that right is beyond reasonable. BTW, your previous comment needs some editing by someone who understands the English language.

        • Shirley Felux

          That is very true.My husband was military and now law enforcement and still can’t voice his opinion

      • conc11111

        You can’t protest at work and neither should they.Its in Thier contract.Are you a racist?

      • Shirley Felux

        They don’t care about the men and women in the military who gave EVERYTHING so these maggots on bent knees could have the freedom and opportunities to have a career

      • Billy Bong

        When people continue to throw around the word “racist.” It looses ALL of its meaning. If the goal is to call everyone racist and eliminate American history, there is a chance that history could repeat itself. Please bare in mind, blacks only make up 13% of the entire population. They have come a long way. It would be very wise not to make things the way they were.

      • Richard S.

        Too bad you weren’t visiting a country where ISSIS is located as they would place your head where you could see your own a$$hole, a$$hole.

      • Brent

        OK JT, first off, nobody is taking away their 1A rights. Feel free to clarify your point, but I doubt you have a leg to stand on as i’ve probably heard it all at this point, and it’s all a bunch of bunk.

        There’s a time and place for everything, and when you’re at work, you’re not at the time or place for “social justice” protesting. The NFL is a business, and the fans have spoken that they don’t want to see it. They want to enjoy a few hours of NOT SEEING this garbage.

        Second, do you have any proof of this “racist” think you so casually toss out? Using that word on somebody who’s views you dislike demeans the word and makes it much less useful in identifying real racists like hitlery clinton.

    • Mike

      This is not a typical employer/employee relationship. There is a collectively bargained contract with the players that the owners have to respect and work within. I have not read that agreement so I am not saying there is not some loophole they could exploit to have the players stand, but it is not as simple as many other work places where although you will not face federal prosecution for exercising your free speech rights you can be fired for disrupting the work place etc.

      • Steve Flowers

      • B Bob

        • John Taylor

          you would not know what’s real news is because you only listen to news that reinforce what you want to believe, it’s called cultural conditioning.

        • socialsavvy

          It is not a matter of someone not liking our country. It is a matter of knowing that the President wanted to get his 15 minutes in again. He upstaged the person with the protest against injustices in the court and the law enforcement. Trump needs to consider what he is actually against. He used the moment to have attention and make idiots believe that he is so patriotic that he is raving against the man who wanted to say something that other wise he could not. It is just a political stunt with Trump. And if Trump does not like the freedoms this nation allows then HE should pack up and leave with you if he wants.

          He is prescriptive enough to know what to say to make people with shallow thinking support him. It is the idea that the constitution protects freedom of expression. I personally wish the ball players who wish to follow up on the protest would rent a bunch of billboards. That would really be a good way to make more people understand what the protest was about. It definitely was not about flag and anthem. That was Trumps idea.

      • Shirley Felux

        Must be hiding something from the public

      THE NFL PAYS GOODELL $45M + EXPENSES! HE HAS GOT TO GO!

        Such a waste of money. And besides ,what rules does the NFL have concerning this black knee bending.DO THEY REALLY THINK THEY ARE THAT IMPORTANT. NO MONEY NO PAY CHECK.OUR COUNTRY IS MUCH MORE IMPORTANT THAN. THESE TROUBLED CRY BABIES

      • Richard S.

        If he’s making 45 Mil, seems like he could afford his own expenses. What a racket.

  • Patti1947

    These team owners are a bunch of scared idiots letting the players tell them what to do. Go for it. Soon you will see a large decrease in fans going to games, watching them on t.v. and buying their jerseys etc. These players are ungrateful overpaid babies. I will never go to a game or watch it again. Us taxpayers should NOT have to contribute and monies to have the NFL spit in our faces with such disrespect.

    • Askjrsk

      • Bielsabub

        Better yet !
        There’s a list on the net of Sponsors and Advertisers. Let them know there is NOTHING THEY MAKE OR SELL that most of us can live without. When they begin to hurt and they start laying people off we’ll
        see how strong their ignorance of consumers will be. Get rid of the

    Well no more ffotball for me. The same goes for these companies that back the NFL. I hear that they are NOT going to play the Anthem on TV before games anymore.So I won’t watch anything on those channels either. And I will do away with any other channel etc that does not respect our FLAG, ANTHEM and our fallen hero’s like the NFL is doing!

    • julie kemp

      The only good thing about them not showing the anthem on TV anymore is that the players cannot spread their bad behavior nation wide. Only those who STILL buy tickets to the games will see it, and by buying tickets ,they are supporting the players.

      • JHW

        We know how the feel about the country and flag. Just because they don’t show it does not mean we don’t know how they feel. TURN THEM OFF now and for ever we don’t need them but they need us.

  • julie kemp

    If they continue to kneel, games. I will continue to boycott their games. I can live without football, but I cannot live supporting someone who shows bad behavior by spitting on my flag

    These players get way too much money, and then disrespect their country and the armed

    BOYCOTT the nfl, their TV affiliates and sponsors. Especially anhiuser bush who
    hypocritically has America on the side of their budweiser. ab is not even an

      • Paul Allen

        That does little to solve the problem.
        The problem is ignorance and sometimes all out stupidity. Rewarding ignorance and stupidity only begets more of the same. These people need to learn that they are not special and we do not need to listen to them. We pay them to entertain, not preach.
        They also need to learn what they are protesting and why. Protesting the anthem and/or flag because of racism, starving children, bad government, etc. is to protest the very thing that is against racism, starving children, and bad government. It shows that they know nothing about the flag, the anthem, or what either one of them – or our country – stand for. It shows their stupidity and/or ignorance. By continuing to support them (and this follows to Hollywood and any number of groups around the country that do similar things) we continue to support their ignorance/stupidity and things never really get any better.
        In fact, it only serves to divide us even further. It’s better to tell them to stop it, AND tell them why we think they are wrong in their methods, not necessarily wrong in the reason.

    Simple it depends on the players greatful for their special life treatmens as athletes and they stand with hand over heart thats what we see as right ! But if they sit, take a knee or dont pay attention to the Anthem and Flag then when I turn on the game and what i see them doing detrmines whether or not I stay on the station. Home games I dont know what is right to leave the stadium or just to boo loudly to let the players know what we feel !

    Another bowing to the blacks, they have no respect for our country not the individuals who sacrificed with their lives. Well, owners, reach into your wallet and make up for the lack of attendance and the profits. lets see how long that will last. No one I know will be supporting them in anyway.

  • Charlotte Holstun

    Simple answer we don’t participate in any way no buying tickets, no watching.
    I will not let myself, my Country, nor our Vets be disrespected. NFL received $$$ from Soros
    to discredit our President. This goes for any other Sports. There are plenty of Sports
    that do not disrespect our Country.

  • Billy Bong

    The NFL gives me the middle finger, I give my remote the thumb

  • George Durdin

    We as former fans of the NFL MUST send a message to the NFL team owners, commissioner and players that we are not going to accept them ignoring and showing disrespect for us, the flag, national anthem and our country and WILL exercise our right to protest by BOYCOTTING and SHUTTING DOWN the NFL and their sponsors and advertisers on November 12th, Veterans Day weekend on games held Saturday, Sunday and Monday. There are alternative products, services and sports that we can spend our money on. A COMPLETE shut down will get the owners attention and the message.

  • MaranathaMark

    If I were the NFL, I wouldn’t be worried about what Donald Trump thinks, but I would be VERY WORRIED what the Trump Voters/NFL FANS think… and so far, it’s been pretty clear, the majority of them seem to be more than a little put-off by the kneeling crap! President Trump is one man, and he doesn’t have the power to legally force them to stand, but the fans can become ‘Ex-Fans’ and then the NFL will eventually have to cut those multi-million dollar salaries of players, and possibly see the League dissolve! Then these players, if they haven’t been frugal with their wages, they may find they have to get out and actually try to find a job… with the FAKE EDUCATION they got if they even bothered with College! Let’s see how real it gets, when they can’t afford the 20,000 sqft home or 6 figure cars the love to drive!

    Buy nothing from them. Then watch what happens. AND take away the teams Non-Profit status
    concerning stadiums Make em pay the proper taxes. These players need a good hard lesson.

    • Mike

      I assume you are boycotting all Trump products, speeches etc as well? I mean he has done far worse than kneel. He dodged the draft, disrespected POWs, a GOld Star Family and recently a widow whose husband died defending our freedoms. You may disagree with the players and that is fair. It is fair to boycott them as well, but I assume you will be consistent in your outrage and also show that outrage to our sitting President Donald Trump.

    • CHARLES WRAY

      Hey Marion as a 70s vet I do not have a PHD BUT I DO HAVE A DD214 ,No more nfl of any kind,advertisers included.Time to start spending time with my grandchildren on Sunday.And that is the name of that tune.Marion you are a true American,THANK YOU.

  • Russell Manning

    So proud of our pro-players who refuse to the let Trump establish the reason for their protests–law enforcement brutalities and inequities are the cause, not the flag/anthem themselves. But what the latter represents fails to represent many of them. The title says “Trump Mad” And I only thought dogs were mad as in rabid but Trump’s tantrums and explosive temper outbursts continue to roil the WH. God, the rabies shots are painful.

    • Pat Hunsucker

      What a loser you are.

  • Benton Marder

    The players can deir boogy dance on the sidelines all they want, but the fans will have the last word. The players think that the NFL is more important than ordinary patriotism and good manners. By the time they come to their se nses, the damage will be done—and will not be undone.

  • Henry Gregg Nash

    I look at this way, If they don’t want to stand for the Anthem, let them go, I figure that if the rating hit rock bottom, the fans stay home and the stadiums are completely empty, They will realize that people are fed up with them and get back to business….. Let them be the sorry individuals that they are!

      Wonder why the players who stand haven’t been quoted or outwardly support the anthem and this country? Afraid of losing their jobs I guess and THEY’RE not the ones who need to be fired.

  • EC Lewis

    That’s fine. They don’t have to stand and I don’t have to watch them. I haven’t this season, so nothing lost there. High school and college football is just fine with me. My other annoyance is the fact that our tax dollars are going to the NFL in grants. Really? that needs to stop fast.

  • Richard S.

    We need all good red blooded Americans to get on this band wagon and vigorously protest the NFL, especially the fans that actually attend the games, but TV viewers are just as important in showing the NFL and the owners how they derive their income. Please take the time to call a few TV advertisers each day and let them know of your displeasure. It is incumbent on all of us to keep the pressure on them, even if they cry”uncle” we should show no mercy so that they really get the message. Are we all together?

  • pinballman1

    I’m going to start watching football now. They have the constitutional right to protest during the national anthem and it’s good to see the owners are defending their rights. That’s what our servicemen & servicewomen are fighting for. Can’t any of you understand that? We don’t have to like it but we DO have to support their first amendment right to do it.

    • Glenn

      The issue here is that yes you can express your voice. But their voice is being drowned out by those of us that just see the issue of respect for the flag and anthem. So these protesters are losing..

    • Richard S.

      Sounds like some of those pinballs found a way into your skull, guess you weren’t fast enough with the flippers. Caution stay away from scrap metal yards where they use powerful magnets to pick up scrap metal, and stay away from all magnetic sources your problem is serious.

    • sherissky

      And you can do it at your job? I don’t think very many can without getting fired. Why don’t they do it on thier own time?

      • pinballman1

        And would they have gotten any attention to what they are protesting for? The whole point of protesting was to bring more attention to the fact that police are killing American citizens at an alarming rate. It’s working.

        • sherissky

          Look at the actual stats. There are bad cops, but the numbers don’t support thier narrative.
          And disrespecting our country and our military past & present isn’t the way to get people on thier side. Pissing people off just makes them care less about the root of the problem. If you read all the comments, besides ours (since you brought it up), how many have anything to do with they are supposedly protesting. According to the NFL today now it’s about women’s issues. I call b.s., attention seeking overpaid babies who are not gratful for what they have. They have the $ to do something in thier communities if they really cared. & yes the media would cover that. So saying, this is the only way is b.s.

          • pinballman1

            I never said it’s the only way, I said they have the right to do it. As for the numbers, how many unarmed black men have to be killed by police to warrant a peaceful protest ? 10 high profile killings in the last two years is nothing compared to the population but it is still too many, Isn’t it?

          • Sherissky

            1 is too many. I don’t agree with 10. 3 I know was the police 100% to blame. If you are stopped by a cop, don’t resist, many of those situations would have resolved differently if they hadn’t. There are a lot of issues we (as a country) need to fix. This show of disrespect isn’t the way, in my opinion and it seems I’m not alone, by a long shot.
            Why don’t they take thier money and disgust to Chicago if they want to save black lives. Loss of life everyday is unacceptable! But because it’s blacks killing blacks their not outraged? I think every corrupt cop needs to be taken out, I’m prison will see to that. But it’s such a small percentage compared to everything else going on in our country right now. People from other countries & continents here only to commit crimes against Americans.
            They need to unite in 1 cause put thier money were thier knee is and be part of the solution! They have the means to make a difference. They just want attention, or they would be taking action, real action

        • CHARLES WRAY

          The question is ,why are they doing this,if in fact they are doing this .What do they experience or see.Every one has a breaking point.I do NOT condone this by no means.Is it us letting them down by not respecting them.I sure saw a lot of police helping the Vegas victims,Race did not play into that.If they really wanted to kill American citizens at a alarming rate,as you say.Why not just stand down and let the gunman have at it.Who protects these players after the games?

    • CHARLES WRAY

      As a vet I say yes that is there right.I cannot say who can do what,if thats what they feel is right,so be it.I dont like it done that way,but its not my call.I just wish with all the influence they have over the youngsters that watch this, there could be a different time and place.As for me ,my right is to have nothing more to do with the NFL PERIOD.And pinball its good to hear you will be watching college football.Just do not know where my rights were in the Viet Nam draft.Was told I may have to kill someone I did not know,and did nothing to me.You want to talk about rights ??

    We do not have to watch these highly paid un-patriotic boys who would spit on the flag and the wounds and graves of patriots who provided them the freedom to protest. If you want to watch football, then support the junior and high school kids who are playing the game not for big bucks but just the game. They will appreciate the attention more than the so-called pros.

  • Bo

    Even if they stand, I refuse to watch the NFL. Trump is right, the NFL and the OWNERS are responsible for allowing the actions of their players to denigrate those who are employed to uphold the law as well as disrespecting the country they compete in. The INMATES can take THEIR OPINIONS and SHOVE IT.

  • Dean Steider

    If they do not listen to Trump the sport fans will speak with their actions and when they have to take a big pay loss they may rethink their actions.

  • Mike

    let’s be thankful that the players at least didn’t insult a Gold Star family, insult POWs by saying that they liked those that were not captured, or expressed that there were good people on both sides of the Charlottesville protests. you remember the one side that chanted Nazi slogans and carried the Confederate flag. a flag that represents an open rebellion against the United States. the very flag we are supposed to be respecting. it’s a good thing these players in the NFL did not dodge the draft with multiple deferments, one a medical deferment for bone spurs that the person can now not even remember what foot they were in. Thank goodness the players did not take 12 days as a Commander in Chief to recognize our fallen soldiers and then call the widow of one of those soldiers and insult her with comments like that is what he signed up for. it is a good thing these players were not that disrespectful. oh wait the same group that now expresses outrage at this disrespect by the players elected the person talked about above as our president.

  • samiam

    But guess what NFL; fans will not be showing up or watching games because of this decision!

  • Yarbles

    The NFL is rigged and becoming more so everyday. The new subjective rules to ‘protect’ players and the EXTENSIVE use of instant replay which is interpreted in wildly different fashion from game to game, leaves open a wide gate for fraud.

    No only are these rules and instant replay disruptive to the flow of the game, it is ruining confidence that the rules committee and owners are acting in good faith.

    Billionaires don’t involve themselves in ANYTHING that is not tilted in their favor or downright fixed. See George Soros or Tom Steyer and their ‘War on Coal’.

  • Donovan Blaylock

    Americans should demand they take “National” out of their name and call it for what it is The Communist Football League. Get out of our Country you bunch of Commies

  • Vincent D. Sacco U.S. NAVY

    Since the NFL has made their decision to not let players show respect to our colors, I will continue with my decision to not watch any NFL games or any other sports teams that kneel or lock arms.
    This Navy Veteran has had enough of this BS. Ungrateful Bast**ds…….

  • John Taylor

    I find it hard to understand how people can allow a man who didn’t have the patriotism to go into the service of his country to all of a sudden define patriotism for white america,is patriotism white supremacy.misogyny,is worshipping a raggedy piece of cloth that to some represent oppression, every evil known to man,if so the white people in the human race not all but most are sick,because that’s what racism is mental sickness,to believe you can systematically, oppress people deny them opportunity,blindly follow a person so evil as donald trump and allow him to lead you into captivity

    • Pat Hunsucker

      The Flag is a symbol of our country’s freedom. How long ago was the draft? What OTHER people, in government also, avoided the draft and ffor what reason huh? You seem to have all the answers so go forth and speak.

      • CHARLES WRAY

        I was in that draft,served proudly.I can guarantee you I was not considered or treated as white supremacy.All we knew is we all were one.We were all friends,all races no questions ASKED.We all cared about each other and still do.And Im not sick.Dont have a PHD but I do have a DD 214.

    • CommonSenseReborn

      So I guess if all the black players were white they be making a lot more money in the NFL. Is that what you’re saying?
      If this country is so oppressive please feel free to go to North Korea or some other country…. a lot of white people died so you could have the freedoms you have.
      I find it ironic that all these “oppressed” people keep trying to come to the United States.
      By the way you’re not a Slave and I’m not a slave owner so why don’t we all just get over it. Let the country heal….stop having a victim mentality!!

      • sherissky

        That is good commen Sense. Pun intended

    • larry outlaw

      You are a loser, you will die a loser.

    • Janelle

      Neither did Clinton or Obama.

  • Don Zimmerman

    I have stopped watching National Forgotten League. My football day is Saturday.

  • RealAmerican407

    Of course they won’t.

    Blacks are their bread and butter.

    They have to pander to their sham protest and bogus narrative that law enforcement is the greatest threat to the black community.

    The single GREATEST threat to the black community is the black community.

    • Wendy Mantooth

      Well said!!!!

  • 2shinyshoes

    Screw the NFL. My family is done with them. Don’t give a crap who their halftime celebs are.

  • ECwashr

    Goodell and the NFL owners are yellow backed cowards!! They are running scared of the Liberal Media and the thugs who play in the NFL!! BOYCOTT all NFL games and NFL merchandise!!

  • MyRoseHasTHORNS

    I won’t even buy their ‘Merch’ at discount prices! If they give it away free, I’d still decline!

    • Janelle

      Unfortunately, their behavior is hurting the small business owners that sell their merchandise, too.

      • MyRoseHasTHORNS

        True but they can personally deal with the players or union or nfl. My suggestion would be to stock up on Hockey gear…

        • Janelle

          Hockey is exciting to watch! What those players do on skates is unbelievable. Penguins fan here!

  • EMIRCITNA

    IT’S UP TO the American people to decide what is more important…..FOOTBALL or COUNTRY!!!!
    Without fans’ financial support the NFL will not be able to exist, neither will their overpaid millionaire jerks!!!

  • Edward Conley

    Take all their funding and their tax exempt status.

    • Mike

      They do not have federal tax exempt status and have not for several years.

      • J Whitehurst

        No but they get all sorts of tax breaks at the state and local level. They also get millions of dollars from the military advertising during their games. Take the state/local tax breaks and government advertising and they will lose their shorts.

        This along with boycotting the National Felons League and their sponsors will bring them to their knees. Just a bunch of overpaid crybabies.

        • Mike

          You are correct on all of that. If those tax breaks were taken away and more importantly their advertising revenue was hit hard it would have an impact.

      • sherissky

        It went away, but they got some of the tax breaks back. Plus we build the stadiums while they take in billions

        • Mike

          I agree with you on the stadiums but that is a local and state issue not a federal one.

  • Arturo R. Pasarón Pérez

    los fanáticos no estan obligados a pagar para ver y enriquecer a los que se arrodillan; Existen otros deportes con directores y deportistas mas dignos.

    • CHARLES WRAY

      Say What?

      • Arturo R. Pasarón Pérez

        fanatics are not obliged to pay to see and enrich those who kneel; There are other sports with directors and athletes more dignified. What if they should not represent the US at any time because there it counts its flag and its anthem and they do not represent it.

        • CHARLES WRAY

          Auturo R.Thanks that s what I thought you said.I THINK.

  • Terry

    The NFL is a disgrace. I think the draft should be reinstated and they should be drafted. Maybe it seeing what our men have gone threw, they would understand why some of us are angry. If you haven’t seen the American Snyper, please do so. True story.

    • Mike

      So they should serve, but you are fine with the multiple deferments Trump received including his last deferment which was for alleged bone spurs in his foot. Trump has since stated he never received treatment and when asked which foot had the spurs he said he could not remember and the reported would need to go look it up.

      • Janelle

        In what branch of the service did Clinton and Obama serve?

  • CommonSenseReborn

    Remember When Tim Tebow took a knee (for the right reasons) and their was a big halabaloo about it… but I guess because he was a Christian he didn’t have any 1st Amendment rights.
    What a bunch of hypocrites!!!

    • larry outlaw

      Tim Tebow got f++++d. The nfl should be ashamed.

  • J Whitehurst

    Just a bunch of spineless cowards who won’t stand up to their employees. JJ (Cowbabies owner) I wonder how long ago you were nutered and when you’re lost YOUR spine. All talk and no guts. NFL – NO FREAKIN’ LONGER!!

  • terrymengle

    Even after NFL owners meetings and meetings with some black demonstrators we can expect nothing to change with continued disrespect of the flag, the war dead, and the nation that gave us freedom. No end in sight because demonstrators cannot tell us what will satisfy them to end the demonstrations. No end in sight, just never ending disrespect. Well, I choose not to watch NFL games that start with the middle finger salute to the rest of us American citizens!!!

  • Tony

    When are the American People going to wake up? This is sickening, Boycott not only the NFL but those who sponsor them!! If we stand together on this issue we can beat those clowns into the ground. Just that the American People have been brain washed by the NFL making people think that football is all that matters. You are spending money on scum bags that don’t deserve to even be on this country, can’t understand my country any more.

  • gray444

    The QB in the league who has the best stats is not in the NFL no not Kaepernick. I am talking about RG3 yet the main stream media does not say anything he is not in the league for the same reason Kaepernick isn’t he is not good enough. I have started boycotting the games and the reason the owners were thinking of changing the rule was we stop watching and sponsor’s were pulling their ad’s. Trust me if we don’t watch and don’t go they will stop this crap and sponsors will not pay if the numbers are down.

  • Doug001

    I stopped watching. Might watch college football, but if someone takes the knee, I’ll switch over. I’ll find a soccer game instead.

  • Derek McGowan

    We should never interfere with people’s first amendment rights even if we find it offensive. The answer is simple: Don’t go to football games or watch it on TV and let the NFL go belly up. It will be replaced by another league that has stricter rules on behavior that we can enjoy without the offense.

  • gray444

    One last comment for 3 hours I used to be able to forget about all the crap in this world and enjoy football. That’s what they should be providing us for their MILLION dollar contracts…. If we wanted news or liberal talk we would not turn the channel to football. There are stations that show that stuff all day long. We watch football to get away and relax and just stop for a minute and enjoy life and now we have lost that. If we are honest we are losing it to some players that should not be telling anyone anything. Note: Look up domestic abuse, murder, drug’s etc… in the NFL and you will find some players playing right now, if they were not spoiled millionaires they would be in jail. Boycott them show them that wonderful life this country gives them is given to them from the very people they are insulting. If we do not go or watch the games and they don’t get paid we are the NFL without us there is no NFL. This part is for the NFL either bring back football with no politics or hey maybe Canada will want to watch your games, I bet the players will stand for their anthem. I have never been more DISGUSTED than when the Player’s disrespected our anthem in England and then stood and showed respect for their anthem. Full disclosure England did not even have a bill of rights until the 60’s they have no freedom of the press. Yeah a country that is not half as good as us and you respect them but not the country that has made you all rich and let you take care of your families shame on you shame on the players and GOD BLESS THE U.S.A.

  • katfan

    My question is, did these players believe that racial oppression was in place in the U.S. before President Trump was elected? If so, why did they not protest while they had an African American President in the White House? Maybe race relations got worse during the 8 years President Obama was in the White House, and that is why they are protesting.
    I spent 30 years in the military defending their right to protest. I also have the same right and I will not support the NFL until Roger Goodell, the NFL owners and the players (through a representative of the NFLPA) apologize to the American people, to President Trump and most importantly to the millions of men and women who have served this nation and given these spoiled brats the right to protest.

    • Mike

      the protests started under obama.

    • CHARLES WRAY

      Katfan,as a 70s vet myself I could not agree with you more.Veterans day will tell the story.As vets we know how to accomplish objectives.That is our creed.Thanks for your 30 years,only had 8 myself.But would do it all again.

  • katfan

    I’m sorry I did not think of this before, but, did these players think that race relations in the U.S. were okay before President Trump was elected? If so, there has been no real change since President Trump was inaugurated. If the problems were there before President Trump, why did they not protest when there was an African-American in the White House the previous 8 years. Maybe race relations deteriorated over the 8 years that President Obama was in office. If that is the case, the protests should have started at least 6 years ago.

  • Steve Flowers

    COMMISSIONER GOODELL and everyone of the others show nothing, NO BRASS BALLS, they have lost control of the players. LADIES and GENTLMEN,
    the time has come for the fans to have our say. DO NOT PURCHASE ANY OF THE PLAYERS JERSEYS, DO NOT PURCHASE ANY OF THE GOODS THAT ARE OVERPRICED AND DO NOT BUY ANY PRODUCTS THAT ARE ADVERTISED DURING THEIR SPINELESS GAMES, IN OTHER WORDS,
    B O Y C O T T T H E N FL……BOYCOTT THE NFL, IF THEY CAN’T STAND WHEN OUR NATIONAL IS BEING PLAYED, BELIEVE ME, YOU DON’T NEED THEM! INSTEAD SPEND YOUR TIME WITH THE FAMILY, YOU WILL FEEL GOOD ABOUT THAT! IN CLOSING…COMMISSIONER 45M GOODELL RESIGN. YOU SIR DO NOT BELONG , WE THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN!
    THE DESIGNATED BOYCOTT OF THE NFL..VETERANS DAY, 11/12/2017.

  • Rudy Rude

    Leave what is liberal to the liberals .I love this country .I don’t like communist American haters was nice while it was American . Police and service members need to get out now nfl is finished

  • Bachelor With Sense

    I said before and I will say it again… I will NOT contribute a Dime to the NFL or their Sponsors UNTIL Commissioner Goodell APOLOGIZES for NOT Fining the Players that take a knee AS PER NFL RULES!!

    Good LUCK with your IDIOCY, cause you ALL are going to loose a ton of money AND Fans!!!

  • Deplorable Lanie

    I can tell you what the people are going to do. They are going to continue to boycott the NFL and anyone else who disrespects the Flag and National Anthem. My Uncle was in WWII and my nephew is in the Air Force, so if you disrespect the Flag you are disrespecting them, and I do not have to watch or listen to it. And I really don’t have to spend my money on games or jerseys or hats or memorabilia or anything to do with the NFL! Me and my family are OUT!

  • katfan

    When Tim Tebow was in the NFL, he took a knee to honor his God and Savior (a freedom of speech issue). He was fined by the NFL and told he could not do that again. Today players are taking a knee (another freedom of speech issue) to disrespect the Nation, and the millions of military members who have served to give them the right to protest. After my 30 years in the military, I have the right to protest the players actions, by not supporting the NFL or the many sponsors. The NFL players are paid by the owner, but the owners get their money, to pay the players, from the sponsors. If the money from the sponsors drys up, the NFL also drys up. Then these spoiled brat players will be forced to work for a living. There is no other nation on the planet that will pay the salaries these players are accustomed to. Maybe the players should realize that, then understand that they (even though they may be African-Americans), are beneficiaries of the benefits of living in the greatest Nation on earth.

  • Marion Quinton

    Mike you’re on the wrong page. I’m sure you know nothing about Agenda 21, etc. And have to be

    • CHARLES WRAY

      Marion,again your right on.As for me its college football Sat.shopping with the wife Sunday and it will not be shopping for a Ford.Let them spend a tour of basic training at U.S. Marine Corp Parris Island and disrespect the flag.Let me know how that works out for them.

  • Robert Wayne

    I don’t care what the national felony league bastards do. I will never waste my money on another ticket or waste my time watching these maggots on TV again…..ever.

  • conc11111

    I love it ,nfl committing harrycarrie.What a bunch of dumbasses.

    • TrueRedWhiteandBlue

      and that is absolutely what they are doing.

  • GymS

    The NATIONWIDE boycott of football on Veteran’s Day weekend is going to be huge. The obama/soros owned media is gonna get hurt, bad.

    • CHARLES WRAY

      I guarantee one thing,This 70s vet along with a bunch of other vets will boycott I truly feel sorry for the people that work in sports resturants and hotels.They may not get the hours they used to get.

  • Farte’

    Colonoscopy Kaepernick the original village idiot has inspired the whole village. What a shame. They have the right to protest and so do I.

  • gideonrockwell

    I’m totally done with the NFL. There are a lot of other sports out there. I enjoy watching MLS. It has continued to grow in popularity, though sadly our team didn’t get in the World Cup this year. I also enjoy MMA. And the way the rules are going in the NFL they might as well be playing touch or flag football. So let the NFL teams take the field to an empty stadium.

  • TrueRedWhiteandBlue

    Well………doesn’t THAT just take the cake? This lack of respect for flag and country just cements and underlines what I had already decided to do. NOT watch or attend any NFL games from now on. Pres. Trump just needs to leave it be and let the fans take the air out of the NFL’s balloon for him.

  • keepersleeper

    If the NFL had a backbone, here’s what they should’ve done, as soon as Kaepernick pulled his stunt:
    1. Shut down the entire season
    2. Honor the current contracts and then fire each and every player
    3. All NFL owners come together, redraw the contracts and make them AIR TIGHT against ANY form
    of disrespect or political grandstanding
    4. Set up a brand new draft and start from scratch

    Yes, I know it’s a drastic plan, but being as rich as they are, the owners could afford to take a big hit/loss for this remaining year, but ultimately, they would simultaneously ‘clean house’ of the current political rot and send a message to both players and fans that this kind of foolishness will NEVER be tolerated! The NFL would then, regain its preeminence and recoup any monetary losses for its efforts.

    • sherissky

      Unfortunately that didn’t happen & thier true colors are showing

  • Marion Quinton

    Charles Wray…Thank you… I to spent 10 years in the service and I really get upset when Anyone disrespects “0le Glory” and our “National Anthem” There is NO excuse for it in my thinking.

    • CHARLES WRAY

      Marion,Right on.I just cannot understand how a vet with a helmet protecting or country and facing death makes 40 to 50 thousand a year.A person wearing a football helmet protecting a football for a few months makes mega millions .

  • Murphmeister

    Trump may be mad, but millions of fans are mad, too. It’s their anger the NFL should fear.

  • time to make national felon leauge poor.

  • Terry

    Boycott the NFL and bankrupt every team show these bums what the flag and anthem means to real Americans

  • Rolpho Signetti

    You are right! I AM MAD! Get rid of those S O B’s!

  • Marion Quinton

    I don’t understand it either. It should be reversed.

  • Christian_Prophet

    If Trump had his attorney general protect civil rights and ensure police departments stopped discriminating against African Americans, the protest at NFL football games would end. Get to the righteous cause of the protest, instead of self-righteously diverting attention from the brutality of police forces in America and the Trump administration turning a blind eye.

  • Willie the 6’snake in the barn

    Fight fire with fire. STOP going to the games. Start sending the team offices and team players with national anthem mail. GET ON YOUR FEET OR OFF THE FIELD. LOAD their mailboxes with so much junk mail that they wont know what to do.Im SENDING MINE
    if THEY REALLY WANTED TO STOP THE SO CALLED SOCIAL INJUSTICE then get back to the hood AND START PREACHING TO THE THUGS AND YOUNG KIDS TO DO SOMETHING POSITIVE WITH THEIR LIVES. Stop voting DEPENDACRAT. The very ones keeping you in poverty, paying for everything so they can keep you beat down and dependant. Just enough to KEEP you under their control.

  • Wendy Allen

    People may skip their games since they are playing for the National Football league and should honor the nation.

  • Ken

    At heart, I think there are better ways for the players to bring attention to the social injustice that honest people will admit still exists.

    That said, I hope every player on every team kneels just to piss off Trump. Trump showed the true depth of his patriotism when he chose to become a draft dodging coward. Now, he pretends to have such love for this country and he claims to be so willing to fight for this nation. Sure he is, as long as someone else is doing the dying. As long as no one in the Trump family is in harms way.

    • Janelle

      Ken, it pisses off the people who make up the fan base. Where predjudice exists, I say wipe it on. However, I qualify my opinion. I have little use for the “religion” of Islam. Are there those who embrace whatever is good there……okay. But most of it
      makes me recoil in disgust. You are on the wrong side of this, Ken.

  • William Helwig

    Racism is alive and well in the Black community, if they don’t get there way it’s ‘Racist’. Now they call it Social Injustice!!!

  • hangout4900

    Well then let the fans take control of the situation by not going to the games Then when the stadiums are empty and when no one is making any money maybe then the NFL might decide to change their minds and force the players to stand for the National Anthem.Its funny how money has a way of changing people minds all of a sudden.

  • socialsavvy

    None of this hurrah would have happened if Trump had not misrepresented the situation by saying the players were being disrespectful of the anthem. The people displaying their dissatisfaction with the way that there were injustices going on, wanting to draw attention to that fact, were not in anyway wanting to disrespect the flag or the anthem. Trump used this situation to make it seem like primarily Black players were the ones who were going against the US. I really think he had to make it about himself. For once if Trump had kept his big mouth shut, there would not be all this going on with the players. It is really sad that he is incapable of interpreting what other people are telling him, and rather turn it around to suit his agenda. His having cursed out the player was unforgivable, unless he, Trump, will apologize and ASK forgiveness. That will not happen, because he cannot do that. Trump cannot admit his error and it goes against his character to admit he had made a mistake in judging the situation to be one thing when it was obviously another.

    Trump actually had other matters that were much more important that he could have been taking care of. He really is a miserable President, that is unless he is causing disruption and chaos in some way and some place.

    • sherissky

      Trump nailed it!

    • Janelle

      People were already aware of the Kaepernick foolishness and other players decided to jump on the dead end train with him. They are responsible for this.

    • The Gage

      And this is the ACTUAL truth! Perfectly put. I think Trump is trying to smear the NFL to get revenge for them not letting him in their club and for putting his CFL team out of business(something he is really good at). Known fact Trump has wanted to own an NFL team for years.

  • Codygunn

    I’m exited!! I believe they can kneel their way right out of business!!

  • Rolpho Signetti

    I support these fine American men!

    I will give them a knee… right to da family jewels!

    Ouch!

  • Donald Johnston

    Not to worry. The owners and protesting players are not in charge of their destiny.
    We the fans are. Boycott going to all games, no parking fees, no concessions, no apparel sales. Boycott all TV games and all sponsor products. Anheuser Busch/Budweiser has a hotline to register opinions and complaints.
    1 800-342-5283 The results will help them decide whether to continue or cancel their support and sponsorship of the NFL. We fans are their customer base. When the money flow stops so will TV coverage. In other words in language the protesters will understand: “no money, no honey”. Their million dollar contracts will be useless. Support the 100% boycott on Veterans Day weekend Nov 11-12
    I quit last year after Kaeperdick started this nonsense. No NFL pkg for 2 years.
    Sundays have become family days now instead of being a couch jock. There are many players who didn’t make the cut that would love a shot to play in the NFL at a lot less money. They just might get their wish.

I would expect true fans who consider themselves Patriots, should have already ceased to support these grossly overpaid “entertainers” who do nothing for this country except make millions, have all the women you can get while driving the most expensive cars on the planet……I want to see the end of such highly paid “entertainers” who “play” a sport …………when the owners start losing money, we’ll see who really cares about that flag and our anthem….

    Lee,I believe the tradition is,the saying<<<will you please stand for the anthem.I do not know about other events,but at my stadium if you cannot stand you will be helped up.O yea ,men take there hat off.A far as them kneeling for a injured player,again this is only my opinion.I think its a sign they are asking there higher power to help this player.That is the reason I would kneel for a injured person.

  • This boycott must continue until the NFL owners and sponsors realize,
    that being an American has a responsibility. As Americans, we honor our
    traditions, the endemic and ethos of our Founding Fathers. The National
    Anthem was created as the new extra large flag specially designed for
    use over Fort McHenry during the Battle of Baltimore in the War of 1812.
    The flag had been made to measure 30 feet high
    by 42 feet long “to have a flag so large that the British will have no
    difficulty in seeing it from a distance.” (Major Armistead) Francis
    Scott Key saw on the morning of September 14, 1814, it inspired him to
    write the words to “The Star-Spangled Banner.” Actually, listen to the
    words that were Inspired by that flag, the outnumbered and outgunned
    soldiers held their ground, Baltimore was saved, thereby saving General
    George Washington, at New York City and America. The National Anthem and
    the American Flag CANNOT BE USED OR REFERENCED TO BY ANY PROTESTATIONS,
    OR POLITICAL ISSUES – THEY CAN ONLY BE HONORED. In America, before
    games and events, we have played our anthem and honored our flag to show
    respect for those servicemen and women who have given their lives, to
    provide us to with the “freedom” to enjoy our games. There is no reason,
    cause or protestation that can justify dishonor to our anthem or flag –
    for that, you use some other venue. Stand up as Americans and stop this
    disrespect and those who support it.

    Screw the No Fans Left football league. I’ve played and enjoyed the game for more years than which I will admit, but I’m done with football and all of these anti-Americans, including the Silly-Putty backboned owners!

  • Ray Anton

    Mike you are correct. i worked my entire life with airlines and union covered employees. But I doubt such a trivial and non controversial item as standing for the anthem (until Kaepernik) would be covered in the NFL agreement. It’s never been an issue until now, But in the absence of any such a labor contract entry owners have the right to ask employees to stand. Additionally the NFL in its rules requires the players to stand at attention during the anthem, helmet on right arm, et. The NFL has chosen NOT to enforce that rule. As I said earlier the inmates are running the asylum and you have the owners and Goodell to blame for it.

  • Ray Anton

    With 75% of the NFLplayers being African American anything from the NFL or the owners that offend them draws an immediate accusation of racism. If the same players would spend the same amount of time fighting wife and girlfriend beating so prevalent amongst playersthat would be a plus. Dont hold your breath!!

  • Chi Sam

    It figures the rest of us are paying you to run your mouth in this ‘vocation’ you have crafted for yourself in order to lend purpose to your life.

    Were I allowed to vote on the matter, I would cut you off, you ungrateful former human being.

    • Fred Amirault

      No, I am doing what you refuse to do pay attention to anything besides what you want. You are driving through the forest without knowing what you are driving into . Most of his fights are t take attention away from great wrongs that he does. It is like taking a car trip in , and ignoring warnings of severe weather.There are dire warnings today. You better wake up before Trump destroys this place

  • travis690

    I guess Roger Goodell is as dumb as dirt on this issue.

    To re-interpret the word “should” as to mean “we hope you do this, but we can’t enforce the concept that you must do this” is beyond ridicule. He deserves all the criticism he gets on this issue. I mean, why put that rule in the player’s manual if you intend to not enforce it?

    The way the league is acting, they should have eliminated the rule at the last owner’s meeting. Then they can show that they are both consistent and stupid, instead of just stupid.

    Fred I’ve lived with liberals for more than 40 years. I just moved away from California’s liberals and they will take every dime you have. They will take your soul. They will work you until you’re dead and in return you’ll receive nothing. I was an independent voter until President Trump and after President Trump is out of office I will be an independent voter again. President Trump has never been on a previous electoral ballot that I’ve seen and I’ve seen them all since Jimmy Carter. I have no affiliations because I’ve been working myself to death trying to pay California’s bills. I think Fred you should go and live in California for a while your opinions will change as you live the failed social experiment they’re running. But once again like all liberals you’re calling me names because I don’t agree with you. I will tell you that you are under educated you need to live what you are writing about you will feel the true pain of liberalism. In liberalism you are a number not a person and that is just where the pain begins.

    • Fred Amirault

      well, Chicago has them, too. and he did not go very far,but Trump did run twice before as a democrat, but he never got far. This tax? the rich too will take everything you have, and leave you dirt poor. Twice I worked for corporations. What was always most important was the Bottom line. Maintenance was mostly abandoned to the Point they now would have cost prohibited repairs.Today, sadly, for his nation, we have sold our soul to the devil.With Obama, he declared that we are no longer a Christian nation . Of course that too, is not good, because the style of Christianity today is not inspired by the bible. It is a business. It is about making money, and not building righteous lives So, the way that People are today, it is no wonder that they would fall for Trump He is destroying the very Fabric of this nation.
      he is guiity of Colusion,and likely most more he will rob us blind, and then head to Russia to his new Trup Tower Moscow . That Nuclear war is his way out of here. H is forever causing spats to cover crimes. He has torn down the bridges with every ally, and he are aligning ourselves up with Putin, who is really behind everything. Mueller gets to close, and there go off the bombs to North Korea.They are an ally of Russia, and they with protect them. using the secrets that Trump sent them. I would be surprised if we were to survive this year. i hope that my health would not survive until that war.

    • Fred Amirault

      I do not believe in the conservatives, or the liberals They cling to the opposite sides of the spectrum, Take right now, I sometimes for some reason have these dreams that are so realistic that I believe them.t was my rent at one time, this year , it was my medicare drug plan before I knew it they canceled my plan,forcing me to have to pay over $1400 a month fr prescriptions sine June 1 Now, I might have enough in my IRA to pay my taxes, period. I will be 65 years old,and no savings. Emergency in the home,and i might as well go homeless We ll forget people and all we become is liberal, and conservative Shame on you to not treat people as people. How important is this tax cut that YOU are going to get. You don’t train the people so they have a chance. No, you demand that we be slaves, and we pay them for the chance to work. That is what you demand, period. You want to really talk liberal, and conservative. ? I only worry about my health,and I am about to give up.

      • Dead Toad

        It sounds like we have a lot of the same problems. We are just blaming different people for them. All government Representatives seem to get rich while working for our government conservative or liberal they’re all rich. California liberal Dianne Feinstein makes just over a hundred thousand a year but somehow she has amassed a Fortune of 170 million dollars how did she do this who knows but it seems dirty. I agree this whole thing’s a giant mess. Who made the mess and who’s here to clean it up we might disagree but we can at least agree there’s a giant mess. I blame Congress for your medical issues. They tried to fix Obamacare twice and failed. It’s congress’s failure that’s costing you so much suffering. I really don’t know anything about the tax plan that’s going on. I don’t think anybody really knows at this point like the media. I believe President Trump is the best solution that was offered on the ballet for our current mess. Of course he’s not perfect but a lot better then Clinton who is definitely an Insider Criminal. I would prefer Jesus Christ but he’s off-planet right now. I hope things get better for you. I think we are all praying for a better world. I think that’s one thing me and you have in common we both want a better world.

        • Fred Amirault

          it is the fault of a doctor taking a case the he gave to 2 residents. That is really where this all started. Now, for the loss of my wife, it was completely government caused. I will not have insurance again until 2018,
          I do assure you of this . We are now the fractured states of America

        • Fred Amirault

          The world will be better in 20 years. Today’s Babylon ( The USA)will be destroyed the most materialistic country in the world. Russia,who will be Trump’s home in the near future will be wiped out with their ally Iran. What, Trump with be on Iran’s side??Yes. Just like North Korea , another ally of Russia. And They wil lnot be damaged by Trump’s nukes,because Russia has the codes to deactivate USA’s nukes while in route. But Jesus will return and the world will be perfect for a while.
