TV Networks Refused to Show Angry, Booing Fans at NFL Games

(Michael McCarthy, Sporting News) With President Donald Trump’s attacks against protesting NFL players still reverberating, the league’s TV partners decided to air live coverage of the national anthem before Week 3 games.

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

Those partners left out a key element of the coverage: crowd shots of angry fans.

Networks typically do not televise the national anthem except for the Super Bowl and other special occasions, but they recognized there would be intense viewer interest this past weekend.

Some fans, if they reacted at all, happily clapped and cheered during protests, but others did not, and they angrily let their home teams know it.

The audio mics picked up the boos. Yet the TV networks mostly avoided crowd shots Sunday, so there was never a chance for viewers to see fans jeering players.

A segment of Patriots fans in Foxborough, Mass., for example, nearly booed their own players off the field when some Pats sat or kneeled, with some screaming, “Stand up!”

One behind-the-scenes TV staffer at another stadium told Sporting News that camera operators were ordered to avoid crowd shots in case they showed fans counterprotesting the protests.

NBC Sports, CBS Sports, Fox Sports and ESPN pay billions each year to televise live NFL games.

The league saw this weekend’s unprecedented anthem coverage as a golden opportunity to demonstrate unity among players, coaches and owners — and opposition to Trump’s comments….

    Hitler Trump is getting back at the NFL for not letting him own a team .Remember He started this fire them .Don’t you see he playing “The Apprentice” with the NFL. This has nothing to do with kneeling or standing it plain payback.

      No…actually, Jerry Jones, of Cowboys fame started it last year when this S**t started. He said he would fire the first player who sits, kneels, or stay a in locker room. My wife found it on Net, so you can, too. BESIDES… the NFL rules & guide books for the players ALREADY has a rule on “inappropriate” conduct during the playing of the national anthem. Rules which include not respecting the flag.Rules which include UP TO being terminated from your job as a player. Feel free to,look THAT up as well, because IT IS there…Roger “BLM C***S***ing” Goodell is giving these lowlife barbaric animal thugs a free pass all in the name of Communistic PC BS!

      Trump is just saying what most of the country is already thinking–at least flyover country that elected him. If you want to protest something then go protest that, not the country as a whole.

      That flag represents the entire geographical area that is the U.S, the people in it, and our constitution. They are protesting the whole thing whether they realize it or not…

      I hope the NFL gets fired entirely. Maybe then we can focus on real issues that we face and not be distracted by commies.

    • J Whitehurst

      You have it right, Leroy. Trump looks for issues that divide, and then waits 8 days while over 3 million Americans are devastated in Puerto Rico and doesn’t say or do squat.

    Beware, players, you had better be looking over your shoulders. You have collected high salaries at taxpayer expense and your fancy stadiums will be empty and the cities will renig on payment. You have not seen the people’s reaction entirely.

    • Kbuzz

      What they have really killed is the future of young upcoming players. The NFL wont fold but the salaries will drop like a rock. Who is hurt – the future black athletes, worse, is that those in less than stellar family life styles will no longer have the opportunity to escape via athletics – which compounds the Black problem. Vicious little cirlce.

      • TexasCoyote1

        That is what is so destructive about the black culture. They can’t project out the effects their actions will have on the future. Of course, they are also so self-absorbed they can’t imagine the fans deserting their sport because of their symbolic act. Now, it has become a battle of wills, and I don’t see the black players giving this up because they don’t care how much destruction they are causing their employers.

        • Richard J. Garfunkel

          They are using a forum just like the Neo-Nazis who marched on Charlottesville used the issue of Confederate statuary.Who was more correct? The few players who were protesting trigger-happy cops, or the Nazis in Charlottesville!

          • TexasCoyote1

            I personally think Charlottesville was choreographed. When you look at the uncut footage, the photographers who were wading out into the oncoming Antifa appear to have no fear of being hit. Any normal person putting themselves in the middle of a truly unplanned all-out attacked on another group could not have done that without flinching. Then, when you look at the footage taken by Andy Fisher, you understand how the cars were positioned beforehand to stage the (fake) accident. The woman who died actually died of a heart attack.

            Anyway, the initial protest done by Kaepernick might have been staged or he may be idealistic enough to think he was doing the right thing. Regardless, we were not there to know if the black men who have been shot recently by the cops were trigger-happy or just defending themselves from belligerent, out-of-control angry men with nothing to lose.

            When I was a kid growing up in Fort Worth, Texas, black crime was neither reported in the newspapers nor investigated by the police. One of our neighbors was a police detective, and he told us that was the way it was handled. Police did not put themselves in harms way, so there was less police violence against minorities. Do you think we should go back to that to solve the problem?

          • Richard J. Garfunkel

            You have to lay off that 151 Rum. Staged? So the Nazi chants, the swastikas and the jack booted torch march was staged by the media and the left? So you like Nazis marching in America? That’s why we call people like you MAGA Morons.

          • TexasCoyote1

            How do you account for the 6 charcoal gray buses that were seen disgorging all of the participants both Antifa, Nazi, etc.? George Soros might be the first person to look at for organizing and funding this little street theater presentation. You may not be as informed as you think.

          • Richard J. Garfunkel

            Let’s be serious when Nazis marched in Germany, through Poland, France and and yes, Russia and started a war that kills 60+million and affects 2-3 hundred million others, the world takes notice. Who destroyed 1,000,000 homes and building in London, the liberals? These were jack-booted Nazis chanting anti-American, racist rants in a torch-light, Nuremberg Rally, style parade. So people came to confront them! Good for them! All Nazis should be confronted. But,I gather you like them and think that their hatred , bigotry and anti-American protests are more correct than a handful of players? Without the King of Self, who would have cared about Kaepernick?He doesn’t even play anymore.

          • TexasCoyote1

            I’ve read your post twice, but I still don’t understand your point. What I was trying to say in my post was that Charlottesville was staged to put President Trump in a no-win situation. The actors who played the Nazi’s got off the same bus with the actors who played Antifa. They were all part of the same troupe, so there was no “real” confrontation of ideas. There was a choreographed production staged for the cameras. Some real people who were not part of the “act” did get hurt, but the paid participants knew they weren’t going to strike each other. My point is there were no Nazi’s; there were no white supremacists; there were no people who had any convictions one way or the other.

            Kaepernick has always been a toxic football player. There is a lot of attitude and resentment in this man, and it showed through even before his kneeling stunt. When it was confined to just him, I could live with it because I have never enjoyed watching West Coast NFL teams anyway. It is just as likely this kneeling lunacy was designed to create racial tensions, but I don’t think those who created it anticipated the negative effect it would have on the NFL. Those 32 franchisees have now become collateral damage.

          • Vee Simpson

            I remember the craigs list article requesting actors

          • TexasCoyote1

            There was also an interview with a woman having lunch in a restaurant who saw the buses and saw the participants get off those buses. The people in the restaurant were then taken out the back door and dispersed.

            Of course, the interview could have been faked. In this crazy world anything is always possible, but there is too much coming out about how this event was staged and how it was paid for that at least some of the information about it isn’t true.

            Don’t you find it a bit unusual the Antifa actors all had matching helmets and sticks? If this were a spontaneous group, I don’t think that would have been possible.

          • Richard J. Garfunkel

            They were bused in from Cuba,I heard it on FOX NOise.

          • bcmarshall

            Don’t you find it a bit unusual that all the Nazis had matching torches?

          • TexasCoyote1

            No, I don’t because the point is both sides got off the same buses. All of the combatants were paid for by George Soros front organizations. Soros wants to destroy our whole nation. What better way to do that than to bring about a race war. Then, we destroy each other and save him the effort of destroying us one at a time.

            On November 4th Antifa says it is planning to be in every downtown area of every city in America to begin their all-out destruction of America. Do you really want that? Don’t fall into the trap. Freedom of Speech is being used against all of us to create the biggest race war since the 60’s.

          • bcmarshall

            You have nothing to confirm what you’re saying except an interview with a woman in a restaurant, which even you agree could easily have been faked.

            Why do you take such a strong stand and make such divisive comments without any confirmation?

          • TexasCoyote1

            I have looked at the raw footage–not the edited stuff you see on CNN, and I have looked at the streamed video done by Andy Fisher and the person who was actually filming Andy Fisher while he was streaming the video. There is too much evidence in that footage that it was a planned, choreographed street theater event to ignore. The eyewitness interview merely confirms what I have analyzed.

            Andy Fisher appears to be using his streaming video to notify coordinators that the cars are in position for the “accident” that supposedly killed the fat woman (later reports said she actually died of a heart attack). He walks along making a big deal out of the maroon van that is the first car at the intersection where it is run into by the gray car some 7 minutes later (during that 7 minute interval it appears the maroon van never left the intersection). As he walks farther, he actually turns to photograph the gray car establishing it’s position. Then, about 2 minutes before the “accident” he stops under an awing with several other photographers and reporters about a block from where the accident occurs, so that he was able to be on the scene within seconds of hearing the collision. It’s just too much convenience–it doesn’t pass the smell test.

            what does this show? That the Nazis have bigger ones than you do/ And the torches, carried by the left-wing liberal Fascists, were called “candles”. woo woo.

          • Richard J. Garfunkel

            Where did you get that from FB/Moscow style. Fake News from the Kremlin, dummy!

          • Richard J. Garfunkel

            What you said was totally irrelevant. Whatever motivated Kaepernick begs the issue. He made his point known and paid the price. The King of Self exploited a basically dead issue, and as a result, the NFL and most of the country rejected the King’s moronic statements and continued idiocy. Now he’s making more idiotic statements about relief in Puerto Rico. He’s mad, don’t you know?

          • TexasCoyote1

            Richard, I don’t see it was a dead issue. Kaepernick was gone from the league, but other black men took up the cause. That’s not a dead issue–that’s a spreading virus. The real question is–do you believe by your disagreements with me that young black men are truly being unnecessarily killed by white policemen? Do you believe these men are not putting themselves into positions to be killed by the way they behave and by their disrespect of authority?

            If he’s mad, I’m loving it. It’s so refreshing to not have some pablum speaking politician droning on for paragraphs and saying nothing. Trump has awakened those of us who value telling it like it is, and will vote to further the populist influence over the American political landscape in coming elections.

          • Richard J. Garfunkel

            You just don’t like Black people complaining, but what about your inane complaints about the Swamp and that the King of Self has loaded his cabinets with real Swamp Creatures. You folks grouse all the time on this site and its clones.

          • TexasCoyote1

            Richard, what I don’t like is black culture. I have known some wonderful black people throughout my life, and they don’t support criminal black men resisting arrest and threatening any policeman, regardless of color, with physical harm. If it had been a black policeman shooting these young men in every situation, would there still be protests? There are any number of black men killed by black policemen. Those shootings don’t get the response that a Michael Brown or Travon Martin get, but the black men shot are just as dead. For lack of a better term, I’m going to call this racial competition, and I don’t want to play.

            I’m not willing to sign on for white shaming when investigators and the courts don’t find any evidence to indict the policemen with. I’m certainly not going to pay money to watch black men protest a situation they would be on the other side of if these oppressed young black men were breaking into their homes and stealing their stuff.

            As for the Swamp Creatures surrounding Trump, I don’t like that any more than you do. We’ll have to see how this plays out over time. I can only hope his advisors change in the future to people not so tied to Wall Street and the Big Banks.

          • bcmarshall

            I’m sorry, Coyote, but that is absolutely a racist remark. Read it yourself!

            “… criminal black men resisting arrest and threatening any policeman, regardless of color, with physical harm.”

            You’re saying right there that all those shot are criminals who are resisting arrest and threatening the cops! Now look at the murder of Philando Castile as uploaded by his girlfriend as it was happening. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mGYYZHDxfAo

            We didn’t have any other video until after the trial was over (the officer was found not guilty, of course). The police finally released the dashcam video. Watch it for yourself. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ofNHB5_j5jM

            This is just one of hundreds. Tell me about the “… criminal black men resisting arrest and threatening any policeman, regardless of color, with physical harm.” that you see in the video. Tell me why the girlfriend was handcuffed and arrested.

            Do you not see the absurdity of your remark?

          • TexasCoyote1

            BC, the officer was found guilty in the Castile case. He was wrong and he is paying a price for it. My remark about criminal black men resisting arrest is not racist. It is a fact, and when criminal white men are shot and killed, white people don’t go all holier than thou on the black community. The intent of my remark was that you don’t seem to get as upset if a black policeman shoots a black criminal, and the white community doesn’t go crazy when a black cop shoots a white criminal. You would seem to be saying it’s okay for black men to try to kill policeman (regardless of race). How much more racist can you get than that?

            There was a Somali policeman who seems to have murdered an Australian lady in Minnesota because she “startled him.” I feel it’s outrageous that he was no-billed in that case, but I’m not protesting and ruining your Sunday afternoon entertainment.

          • bcmarshall

            I believe that you are sincere In what you say. You are also absolutely wrong. The officer involved in that shooting was acquitted.

            https://amp.cnn.com/cnn/2017/06/16/us/philando-castile-trial-verdict/index.html

          • TexasCoyote1

            I’m sorry I thought you said in your post he was convicted.

          • TexasCoyote1

            All I’m interested in is that all laws be enforced. If they aren’t going to be enforced, them repeal them. Laws don’t protect anyone–they are merely the vehicle we use for punishment. As far as I’m concerned the 10 in the Bible will do just fine and could be applied to every offense that occurs on earth. Many years ago in Texas, there was a law on the books stating it was illegal to carry pliers in your glovebox. It was a holdover from cattle rustling days, but it stayed on the books for decades after that was no longer a problem.

            If a policeman murders someone, he should be punished. If a person regardless of color murders a policeman, he should get the same punishment. Isn’t this the true essence of equality?

          • bcmarshall

            Please tell me how Charlottesville put Trump in a no-win situation. All he had to do was condemn racist Nazis.

          • TexasCoyote1

            There is a lot of evidence that has been reported on alternative news sites that indicates Charlottesville was a staged event and the participants were paid actors. If I can find this information, certainly President Trump’s advisors can, too. If you were President of the United States and you knew that an event did not happen as the mainstream media reported it, wouldn’t you have trouble condemning one side knowing that both sides got off the same buses. An eyewitness report of a woman having lunch in a restaurant reported that 6 charcoal gray buses pulled up and all of these people got off.

            If you look at the uncut footage, you will notice the photographers are wading out into the attacking Antifa without any fear of being hit by their clubs. Human nature says most of us would not do that unless the whole thing had been choreographed and we knew we were safe. Also, would you expect all the protestors to show up with matching helmets and sticks?

            Therefore, why would President Trump condemn the group that had the permit to be there particularly since they were the ones most harmed? It was a trap, and his comment about good people on both sides may have been the best he could do on short notice.

          • bcmarshall

            He didn’t want to say anything negative about his base. That’s all.

          • TexasCoyote1

            There are so few white supremacists in the entire country if that were President Trump’s base, he would never have gotten out of the primaries. Think!!!! Some 63+million people voted for him. His agenda is his base–not some fringe extremist group.

            The only ones who are making this about race are those in the media, and the “useful idiots” who are doing what the liberal/progressive politicians tell them to do. Trump threatens to expose the illegal acts of the politicians. He threatens the millions they make at our expense every year. It’s the Democrats who brought us Obamacare that has raised everyone’s healthcare costs. It’s the Democrats who got us into the Paris Climate Accord to take our money and place restrictions on our businesses while putting no such restrictions on theirs.

            I’m not saying the Republicans are any better, but if you really look, this President Trump is hated by both parties. He wants our lives to be better, yours and mine. Don’t get caught up in the political lies that are swirling around attempting to get Trump out of office so those same politicians can get filthy rich at our expense.

            Richard, gotta raise the flag here. Equating war with protesters is a bit of a stretch. Sure factions marched, protested, and were the precursor to war, but rioters did not kill millions -war did. Or, I could twist this and say conservatives caused the war – because good men set back and did nothing. The likelihood that we are doomed to repeat history…well I put it to you, are we too late?

          • Richard J. Garfunkel

            I am always curious why middle class Americans are Republicans. Could it be that they create more jobs. Well there is no evidence of that, Since Truman, Democrats have created twice as many jobs per year when they have controlled the White House. On a year by year basis- Clinton, Carter, Reagan, LBJ, Truman, Nixon and JFK lead Ford, Bush I and II and Eisenhower by a wide margin. In 36 years the Democrats created 79 million jobs to the GOP’s 36 million in 36 years. Those are the facts. Look it up from the WSJ. But maybe it is the stock market that has done better under Republicans. While Republicans promote themselves as the friendliest party for Wall Street, stock investors do better when Democrats occupy the White House. From a dollars- and-cents standpoint, it’s not even close. The BGOV Barometer shows that, over the five decades since John F. Kennedy was inaugurated, $1,000 invested in a hypothetical fund that tracks the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index (SPX) only when Democrats are in the White House would have been worth $10,920 at the close of trading yesterday. That’s more than nine times the dollar return an investor would have realized from following a similar strategy during Republican administrations. A $1,000 stake invested in a fund that followed the S&P 500 under Republican presidents, starting with Richard Nixon, would have grown to $2,087 on the day George W. Bush left office. “The market does tend to do better under Democrats than under Republicans,” Sam Stovall, chief investment strategist at S&P Equity Research in New York, said in a telephone interview. “Is it because Republicans mishandled the economy, or inherited a weak economy? I’ll leave that to others.” But what about Bain Capital and Wall Street’s proclivity to export jobs?
            Is it family values? Since when does Donald Trump, David Vitter, John Ensign, Mark Foley, Newt Gingrich, Bob Barr and scores of other Republicans, over the years, have a monopoly on virtue, family values and decency. When did Romney stand up to the “birthers?” When did he reject the racism and the innuendos voice constantly by his top surrogates? But maybe he and the rest of the other Republicans believe that abortion is not justified in any case. But how about the continued support by the Tea Party acolytes for Senate candidates like Mourdock of Indiana and Todd Akin of Missouri? Is anybody seriously a believer that rape is God’s will or one cannot get pregnant from rape? Why choose troglodytes like these folks and unqualified morons like Sharon Angle and Christine O’Donnell. In fact, any list of Democratic and Republican office holders with regards to scandals and military service, will favor the Democrats dramatically. There is no qualitative or quantitative evidence that favors Republicans over democrats when it comes to morals or patriotism. The real truth is that Democrats are more tolerant of the human condition and the Republicans are bigger hypocrites.
            How about women’s issues? In reality, Republicans rarely support the right of woman to receive equal pay for equal work? They have opposed Title 9, or anti-harassment laws, or even the right to an abortion, if their health and life is threatened. So why would a modern young, educated woman ever vote Republican unless it was strictly an economic imperative.
            So does it come down to the fact Republicans do not like government! Maybe they don’t like women and minorities horning in on their rights and the Eurocentric- white male hegemony? In other words what is that makes you a conservative? Do they eat less? There is no evidence of that! In fact, the obesity rate in the “Red” states is over 30% and much, much higher than the so-called “Blue” states.

            Are you well? Did you ever get a high school education? National Socialism was not liberal.or even socialism. They just used the name. They were the blood-oath enemy of the German democrats, socialists and communists! So you support Nazis marching? So you support the waving of the swastika, but you oppose a peaceful protest against shooting innocent people in the street or their cars. You cannot have it both ways, that Nazis are really good guys, but the people who opposed them are commie pinkos! Sorry you are too used to your own fake news.

          • ProudPatriot

            I get your point. But innocent people in cars? No… I think not. Some shootings were questionable, but to call the “victims” innocent is a stretch. Michael Brown? Thief. Trayvon? Violent wannabe thug.

          • Richard J. Garfunkel

            Are the police judge, jury and executioner? Do you only believe in due process for only whites? How about all the coke use vs marijuana? You can’t have it both ways! Not every Black killed is bad, and every trigger-happy cop is right! Equal justice under the law, cuts both ways!

          • ProudPatriot

            Absolutely. I’m not saying otherwise. My original point was the ‘victims’ aren’t innocent. And they aren’t. Police officers should he held accountable IF they make a mistake. I just can’t help but think a lot of these situations could have been avoided if there wasn’t a crime being committed in the first place.

            Richard,
            You better wake up.
            The true story is NOT being told by the media.
            As a kid growing up on the South Side of Chicago (me), I finally realized that the REAL White supreamacists are the left-wing liberals.
            In the mid to late 60’s, the South Side was a White, middle class area voting 80% democrat.
            As soon as the first Black families stared to move in, the White flight by these phony liberals, as I like to call them, started in haste, taking their wealth and resources with them. The so-called liberals fled en mass.
            And today it’s the left-wing, White supremacists that falsely tell people of color that you can’t make it without us. That you need to vote for us, because we are the only ones that can “help” you. In addition, the left-wing White supresmacists are enabled by the Al Sharptons and Jessie Jacksons of the world.
            The socialist and liberal policies of the left destroyed the Black family and the neighborhoods they portend to help.
            As a former proud democrat living there, I saw and woke up to the REAL reason for all the problems you see today.
            A great read is Jason Riley’s “Please Stop Helping Us”.
            It’ll open your eyes and point you to the real culprits of today’s mess…the White, liberal male and people like you!’
            .

          • bcmarshall

            The real white liberals believe that it’s not them that can help but the black people themselves who need to be empowered instead of disenfranchised.

            LOL. You are right. This is a rightwing site, yet here you, a LIBERAL COMMIE , are posting your daily liberal propaganda. I post on many sites, Comrade, including HufPo and National Memo, so I know just how nutso you LIBERALS are. LIBERALS sites are nothing more than echo chambers, where posters try to recite the daily liberal propaganda better than the other posters. They repeat the same lies over and over, and if there is any poster that strays away from those lies, they are viciously attacked. The party of peace and tolerance are like rabid jackals. Over the past 5 years of doing this, I have received dozens of death threats from those peace loving liberals. Kinda like Antifa, our newest LIBERAL domestic terrorist group.
            MAGA is not a dying position, although I’m sure you are being told to say that it is by your commie handlers. Nope. It is the LIBERALS that will be gone before too long. LIBERALS are terrorists and should be deported or jailed as terrorists

            I can’t believe you’re that blind. Is Shaq O’Neal (basketball, I know) any more representative of the average black person than Bill Gates is to you? Of course not!

            I was responding to Bernie’s comment of, “And today it’s the left-wing, White supremacists that falsely tell people
            of color that you can’t make it without us. That you need to vote for
            us, because we are the only ones that can “help” you.”

            I don’t think black people want others to do for them. They want to do for themselves. The average black and the average white person have a lot in common. Low wages, long hours, bare survival.

            The difference is that there is still a systematic effort by white people (not all, mind you, but whites ARE the ones that make the rules) to disenfranchise blacks. Look at the ridiculous “voter fraud” laws around the country. There are maybe two or three cases of actual fraud across the entire nation in a year, and yet these restrictive laws are passed that are intended to keep black people from voting.

            That is not empowerment, and I can’t believe you’re so blind that you somehow want to equate the financial success of a very few with the suppression of an entire race.

            You don’t seem to get that once those players walk off the field they’re STILL a black man in America.

            I take it back. I think you really are that blind.

          • bcmarshall

            OMG, are you serious? There are dozens of them. The voter ID laws to protect against non-existent “voter fraud” are all designed for that purpose. Purging of voter rolls across the nation are more. Gerrymandering of districts to dilute minority voting power is another.

            It’s all over the place, man. Open your eyes!

          • Donald Neuland

            You still HAVE NOT CITED A LAW. Voter fraud is real. You just continue to deny it because it happens in mostly liberal cities and states. CHICAGO IS THE PRIME EXAMPLE. “Purging” the voter rolls of what? Dead people, people who no longer live in that jusisdiction, illegal aliens, people who are registered in 2+ states. Don’t even start me on gerrymandering. Maryland has the most ridiculous congressional district. Look at today’s WSJ it is in there. The DEMOCRATS did this, and have refused the order of the US Supreme to redraw their districts. It is a case of gerrymandering to reduce MAJORITY voting power. so stop with the conclusions that have no factual basis.

            It’s a solution for a problem that doesn’t exist. Before proposing far-reaching and extreme remedies, why don’t you show me the actual fraud convictions. I can show you the numbers.

            “A study of 2,068 alleged election-fraud cases in 50 states between 2000 and 2012 found the level of fraud was infinitesimal compared with the 146 million voters registered over the 12-year period.

            The analysis found only 10 cases of voter impersonation, the only kind of fraud that could be prevented by voter ID at the polls.” https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/study-finds-no-evidence-widespread-voter-fraud-n637776

            So before you start talking about this, show me the need for it.

          • Debbie Bowman

            Exactly

          • Janet Mrakovich

            They are not disenfranchised. You must’ve missed the memos about our MILITARY MEN who were not able to send in their votes. THEY are the ones being disenfranchised because they mostly vote Republican…..pay attention.

          • bcmarshall

            Let’s get one thing clear. Everyone deserves to vote and to have that vote counted. I would favor a Constitutional Amendment that would make voting a basic right (which it currently is not). It’s very clear that state laws ostensibly to protect against non-existent “voter fraud” are, in reality, attempts to cut poor and minority voters from the rolls and take away that vote from them.

            I’ve posted links to support things that I say, so it’s your turn. If you have information about any systematic effort to disenfranchise military voters then please share it.

            But just know that I would no more stop a service member from voting than anyone else, and, even if we don’t agree on anything else I’d stand right next to you fighting against this if it’s real.

          • bcmarshall

            I’m not going to disagree that there should not be more registered voters than the population suggests, but you have made two very wild and unsubstantiated allegations.

            First, you say this is fraud. Let me ask you an honest question. (I actually live in Southern CA so this is not far off the mark). Many decades ago I lived in LA County, but I moved. I’ll tell you honestly that I don’t remember contacting the LA Registrar of Voters to tell them I was leaving and to drop my name from the rolls. I moved, and re-registered at my new address.

            I never returned to cast a vote at my former address, not even once in all these years, so tell me, just how is it fraud if someone moves away and doesn’t cancel? Wouldn’t a telling indicator of fraud be if the number of votes CAST exceeded those registered? Or those expected?

            My father remained in LA area and again, to my knowledge I don’t remember contacting anyone to tell them he passed away. Does that mean I’m somehow defrauding anyone? If there were never any votes cast in his name I think not.

            What matters is if votes are actually cast illegitimately, and there were 4 cases in the entire nation that were prosecuted in 2016. https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-fix/wp/2016/12/01/0-000002-percent-of-all-the-ballots-cast-in-the-2016-election-were-fraudulent/?utm_term=.b232cba8a14f

            I’m not suggesting that these corrections don’t need to be made, but your screaming FRAUD at the top of your lungs is without merit. I would think if this were true there would be a whole lot more than 4 prosecutions. Wouldn’t you?

            The other thing you allege, without any substantiation of any kind, is that somehow conservatives are hurt more than others. Are you suggesting that conservatives can’t move or die too? My dad was a Republican his whole life. Just how do you figure that any of this impacts conservatives more than liberals, most especially since it doesn’t even exist? I’d really like to see what you use to come up with that..

          • Billy Bong

            No, 144% of residents voted. How is that not fraud?

          • bcmarshall

            You make it impossible to agree with you! This is the title of the report that you yourself posted.

            Sorry Rich, but your the one who is misinformed, the truth is Maybe, and I say Maybe 1 in 20 Black people who are shot and killed by law enforcement are completely innocent of wrongdoing, the problem with 95%of the black males Do not comply completely to the request of law enforcement instead they have a tendency of doing the opposite, they either won’t put their hands up or put down the weapon or show their hands or something besides being in compliance with the order of the officer. They just don’t want to do what they are told. The Problem is!! We have enemy elements in all forms working against the country, the people, and the stability of America. We do have a fight going on in this country that most really don’t know is going on. A fight against Freedom as we know it. And Communism and sadly we are losing this battle against our freedom, because to many people are to busy to notice what is really going on.

            NAZI——National SOCIALIST Worker’s Party. Say who needs an education? BTW the swastika was a religious symbol used for many centuries by many religions even before the common era.

            But the fingers went the opposite direction. Kind of like the upside down star.

          • Richard J. Garfunkel

            Now, you seem to believe that the Nazi interpretation of the swastika is that of a religious symbol. Where have you been for the past 90 years, in a cave? Everyone with a basic education knows the history of the twisted cross, but you seem to think that Nazi symbol is innocuous. Wake up you’ve been sleep-walking!

          • Robert Wayne

            Who was waving a swastika in Charlottesville? I’m sick of white southerners being compared to Nazis. We have nothing in common with them. Our ancestors who fought for the South’s independence from 1861-1865 had NOTHING to do with the future Nazis in Europe. This whole lie of comparing those of us who are unreconstructed southerners to Nazis is just another despicable lie from the left. I have news for you, there were a helluva lot of white southerners who fought in both Europe and the Pacific in WWII including my dad and two uncles. They were unreconstructed southerners, but you can bet they weren’t Nazis. If so they never would have even gone into the service. As for the communists, do you consider them heroes? Do you even know that Stalin was guilty of murdering even more than Hitler? Are you aware of the atrocities committed by Mao in China, by Castro in Cuba and by every tinpot communist dictator over the decades?

          • sweetqueen777

            Don’t get too excited. NAZI is just the most extreme insult they can think of, which elicits an immediate emotional response in the one being insulted. No One actually believes that insult. It is simply too ridiculous. It speaks more of the one who hurls that insult, than the one it is hurled at.

          • Richard J. Garfunkel

            If you don’t want to be compared with Nazis, stop acting like ones, stop rationalizing jack-booted racists and skinheads. Your father and uncles were no different from my father and uncles. So after WWII, why did they come back to the South and support racism and Jim Crow? One would think that Dixiecrats, who became Republicans, would have a sense of guilt and wished to change the South’s image of a plantation-based, racist society, dominated by the Bull Connors of the past. The South didn’t change on its own. It took the Feds, the law, Freedom Rides, and a new generation to be born. Most of the South doesn’t support the Nazis in Charlottesville, and many of those fascists were not from the South. So stop rationalizing disgusting conduct.

          • Robert Wayne

            If you really want to know who are acting like the Nazis of pre WWII Germany, it’s you libturds who have been rioting, attacking conservatives and doing nothing but rabble rousing and causing chaos for the last half century or so. Left wing troublemakers especially in universities and on the west coast have a lot in common with Nazis, especially in the way they physically attack anybody who doesn’t agree with them and in the way they refuse freedom of speech to anybody who doesn’t agree with them. The left also uses the media and the entertainment industry in much the same way both the Nazis and Communists have used their propaganda arms over the years.

          • Richard J. Garfunkel

            Listen John “Robert ” Wayne, get sober for a moment, and look at the long list of domestic terrorism by whites for decades and decades, back to the 1000+ lynchings of Blacks and others from 1900 to the 1970s. Oh, the poor helpless conservatives, who are always being picked on. How tough it is to be a Nazi, a KKK, a white Nationalist, a Militia Survivalist and a Holocaust denier and be picked on by the the pointy head, elitist liberals. Maybe the pen is mightier than the sword, but you MAGA Morons got all the guns. Any Black churches on your list to bomb or shoot up this week. Too bad Timothy McVay is toast.

These guys wives do not have to worry about whether they will return home at the end of their shift. I am SICK of these spoiled Brats. They give absolutely NO THOUGHT to the Big Picture, which truly DOES affect the future generations in this country. They are just NOT TOO BRIGHT, for the most part.

        • TexasCoyote1

          Is it reasonable to think someone who thought the NFL would be a great venue to pander to the black community, got to these guys and encouraged them to do these protests? Colin Kaepernick is unstable and hateful enough to have thought of his protest on his own, but the protests should have died with his exit from the sport.

          I have to believe the NFL owners are wringing their hands over the backlash that is aimed squarely at their pocketbooks. Such a lose-lose situation which could have been avoided. Last year, Jerry Jones told the Cowboys they would be fired if they pulled the same stunt Kaepernick was. I was sorely disappointed to read he caved (even if only slightly) to the black stupidity in last Sunday night’s game. He could have really been a leader if he had held to his earlier warnings. I have to wonder what pressure was brought to bear on him.

            They pay taxes like anyone else, and the money is spent here, not sheltered overseas,or spent on foreign investment.Wall Street exported the jobs, not the NFL. I am no fan of the NFL in the least,I love baseball, but the players are free agents, with some limitations, as are the free agent traders, with no limitations on Wall Street. By the way, I started on Wall Street, ran a business on main street (NYC) for 25 years, and finished on Wall Street as registered rep. I know both ends of capitalism, as my whole family, including my brother-in-law who runs a hedge fund.Never forget, there is more money stolen on Wall Street in one day, than all the muggings in history. Just vote for more de-regulation, and your butt will get burned.

          • TexasCoyote1

            Then, put Glass-Stegel back on the books. It worked for decades, and it would work again to stop some of the shenanigans that Wall Street pulls to steal from the small investor.

          • Bill kennedy

            Richard, the top 1% pay an average rate of just over 27% in federal income taxes. That 1% nationwide is about $400,000 per year. If you want to argue that the top fraction of 1% of 1% are paying capital gains rates on what should be ordinary income (carry interest) you have a point and it ought to be stopped. However these folks, like Tom Steyer and Buffet have, publicly at least, decidedly collectivist and statist political positions. They are on your team. The top 1% pay something like 39% of individual federal income taxes. Their marginal rates in states like Cali with a high state income tax are in the mid 50% range. That’s without a dime in any other type of tax and there are many. The uber rich like the left’s hero Zuckerberg may be under taxed but the working wealthy are carrying their share of the load and more. The US income tax rates are steeply progressive. The bottom 20% or so have negative rates, that is they pay essentially zero and get money back.

            The upper strata pay significantly more as a percent of federal income taxes collected than they did in 1980. The bottom 50% pay less. Its never enough.

            Cordially

          • Richard J. Garfunkel

            I couldn’t care less who makes the top salaries, they paid in the top 90% bracket from Wilson to Kennedy, except in three- four years of Harding-Coolidge era, which fed the frothy boom that led to the Crash.Kennedy lowered the top bracket to 70% and we did quite well for years.In fact, from 1946 through the 1970s, we had the highest productivity and wage increases (over 90%). Reagan cut the tax rate to 28% and two brackets, the other being 15%. In his 8 years unemployment averaged over 7.5% until his last year when it dipped to 5.4%. Bush 41 had to raise taxes because the National Debt quadrupled. So at the end of the Reagan-Bush 12 years, unemployment, which Reagan inherited at 7.5% ballooned to 10.5% for 18 months, inflation raged, Volcker squeezed the oil-embargo inflation out of the economy and we had a decent recovery in 1988, with huge increases in defense spending (the ill-fated Star Wars, the funding and arming of Sadaam Hussein, the Savings and Loan boondoggle and the soon forgotten 600 ship navy. Well after the First Gulf War, when Bush 41 had a 95% job favorability, what happened? The budget deficits increased and Bush 41 lost with the lowest percentage for an incumbent president at 37%with unemployment back to 7.3%. That was a great 12 years for whom?But, the 28% tax rate caused the greatest transference of wealth in our history from the middle class to the rich! Never forget, when Reagan started their were 12 billionaires in America. Four year and ten years after his tax cuts there were 49 and 99. Now there are 540+ billionaires! Are we better off? Yes, they pay the most taxes, but, by far they have made the most money. The six Walmart heirs possess $150 billion,more than the bottom 40% of all America, but Trump wants to give them an inheritance tax windfall of $60 billion. Sorry won’t ever happen. by the way how would that help anyone on this site? I’d like to know!

          • Bill kennedy

            No actually they didn’t pay 90%. Anyone who looks will find, for example, that in 1950 the MARGINAL rate was about 90% on $400,000. correct that for inflation and it will be about $4,000,000. Right now, as noted some people who make 10% of that inflation corrected number have marginal income tax rates North of 50%.

            This has nothing to do with what you like or don’t. Again, as noted the high earners aren’t just paying more as a percent of total individual income tax collected they are paying much more than they were thirty years ago. The lower strata are paying less and frequently less than zero. The federal revenue collected in 1988 was about 75% greater than that in 1980. With very few exceptions federal revenue grows every year but its never enough. Taxing people you think have too much money at ever increasing rates won’t fix anything. We may well have reached the point of no returns with very clear appeals to the people who pay zero, and its very near 50%, to use the ballot box to vote themselves other peoples property.

            A further look at the tax code for 65 years ago will reveal lots and lots of places for people to put their money to avoid a 90% marginal rate. After the so called “loopholes” went away with rate reductions the rates son climbed and the “loopholes” never returned. As just one of many examples, at one point the very first dollar of medical/healthcare expense was deductible. Now you have to spend thousands of dollars before you can deduct anything for medical expenses. There’s lots more.

            The idea that the government should seize one’s property at death in the name of “fairness” strikes me as theft. The Walmart heirs spend the money on all manner of things that actually do help people like those commenting here. Even if they go back to shirt sleeves in two generations they will have spent the money in ways that are far more “fair” in the distribution of wealth than the government’s squandering of hundreds of millions would ever be. If they want to buy airplanes and boats, working people make, maintain and crew those things. Its what I did for most of my working years outside the US Army. These were very good skilled labor jobs with good pay and excellent benefits in many cases. The idea that it would have been better if if government seized the money looks silly to me after a good career operating machines the political left calls toys of the idle rich. It isn’t so. I would trust the “rich” to engage in things that reward the productive before anything most of our career pols can create. You can acknowledge all can of flaws in some of these “rich” folks and still believe that.

        • Richard J. Garfunkel

          Trump doesn’t have freedom of speech? He’s shot his moronic mouth off for 2 years, and where has it gotten him since his inauguration? His job favorability is in the crapper, he cannot lead, he doesn’t know the legislation, he lies continually and he’s a bigot. What else is new? I posted this list a few months ago. There are a lot more since then. But, his most inane remark of late was his call for a law to ban immigrants from getting welfare. Too bad for that unfit, unqualified and unhinged brigand, the law has been on the books for over 20 years. If there was ever a Liar-in-Chief #45 is it! You folks who like the King of Self should check it out how normal Americans despise that swindler and criminal.
          A. Trump claimed that he was number one in his class at the University of Pennsylvania and he earned an MBA. A total lie!
          B. He said many times that he would release his Federal Income Tax statements. He hasn’t and will not. His taxes should be audited by a Congressional Bi-Partisan Committee to see if he has lied about his connections to Russia and Putin. If he has nothing to hide, let a responsible committee review them.
          C. He has stated that he has had no connection with Russia, but statements from his children and his own recorded remarks differ with that assertion. There have been over 400 connections between Trump surrogates and the Russians.
          D. He stated that the murder rate in the United States was the highest in 45 years. That was a complete lie. The murder rate has been dropping in America for decades.
          E. Obama was letting in 250,000 Syrians and they were directed to Red States! Another lie!
          F. He made a specious claim that his Electoral College victory was one of the largest in modern history, a complete misstatement and a lie. When confronted, he inanely remarked, and I paraphrase, “I heard it from others!” How can any person get away with such a specious retort?
          G. He has made the claim that he really won the popular vote, because of massive electoral fraud! Where is the proof of such mendacious claim?
          H. He stated that he had complete confidence in General Michael Flynn, and then fired him for misleading the country and his Vice-President. He knew for weeks what had happened with Michael Flynn’s contacts with the Russians. He lied about this whole episode.
          I. He has repeated often that Hillary Clinton transferred 20% of America’s uranium for a gift to the Clinton Foundation, a lie!
          J. He claimed that Admiral Harwood would not take the position of his NSA chief because of family obligations. That was a complete lie! Harwood and others want obviously no connection with his choice of a known anti-Semite, Steve Bannon on the NSA.
          K. He claimed that he had never heard from the Congressional Black Caucus regarding a meeting. That was completely refuted and another lie!
          L. He stated that the Supreme Court overturned a record amount of decisions by the 9th Judicial Circuit, another false statement.
          M. His ghost-written book, by Tony Schwartz has been repudiated as a complete fabrication. Why haven’t his specious claims been refuted?
          N. He lied about Trump University and settled for $25 million!
          O. He claimed that Senator Richard Blumenthal was disingenuous about his conversation about Supreme Court designee Gorsuch. That was a lie.
          P. He has lied about his wife’s immigrant status and promised a press conference to clear the air. He lied about that. She was here on a visitor’s visa and worked. Where are her tax records and her visa history?
          Q. He has lied about crime in Chicago and made a specious claim about killings during President Obama’s farewell speech. Another lie!
          R. He lied about his Trump Foundation. Why hasn’t there been a follow-up on how he has used that Foundation a personal checking account?
          S. He lied about his charitable giving. When did a person of his supposed wealth give practically nothing to any charities? His tax returns will show the level of his contributions! Every day his tax returns should be demanded.
          T. He has lied about the amount of immigrants coming from the countries he put on a “no travel list!”
          U. He stated that he inherited a “mess” in Washington! A complete lie!
          V. He stated that his administration was a “fine-tuned” machine! Another lie!
          W. He claimed that President Obama tapped his phone lines, where is the proof? Another lie!
          X. He claimed that president Obama released 122 Jihadists! Another lie!
          Y. He claimed that Jews were behind the continual bomb threats, desecration of cemeteries and the painting of swastikas on building, another blood libel lie!
          Z. He claimed that the current bill in the House to replace the ACA will cover all Americans! Another lie!
          AA. He claimed Mexico will pay for the “imagined” border wall!
          BB. Latest lie- that he would testify under oath! There are hundreds more!
          CC. No one will get cuts to the SS, Medicare or Medicaid!
          DD. That he will create a “yuge” healthcare bill that will be cheaper and better for everyone? Huh!
          EE. He lied about the Boy Scouts
          FF. He lied that the boy Scouts called him and told him that his was the greatest speech ever
          GG. He lied that Obama didn’t address the Boy Scouts
          HH. He lied about his conversation with the Mexican President about the wall
          II. He lied about his talk with the Australian Prime Minister
          JJ. He lied about his job creation, it isn’t the greatest even since last year
          KK. He claimed during the campaign unemployment was really 40%, now 4.3% is that the new math?
          LL. He lied about General Pershing- that story was debunked
          MM. He lied about Scaramucci! BY the way the Mooch’s wife left him!’
          NN. He lied about not knowing of his son’s meeting with the Russians
          OO. He lied the military being on alert in Korea
          PP. Now one of his biggest lies about being “bugged” has been refuted by the FBI and the Department of Justice

            You can keep your own doctor, prices will go down – two lies that influenced millions of Americans. Trumps tax return did not influence the country as did his class standing but Obama supporting the killing of babies and secretly giving millions to terrorist did. Get your head out of your butt and have a little common sense.

          • Richard J. Garfunkel

            Compared to Trump, Obama was Mother Theresa. I only listed a few lies, “FAKE” News listed almost 1100. By the way, his latest one was today, that he wouldn’t benefit from the tax cut. Is he for real? It’s not going to go through, so all his bluster and mendacity will be forgotten when another issue comes forth. i suggest you check your facts on Obama’s record regarding killing babies and terrorist giveaways, before you publicly embarrass yourself.I know your friends agree with you, but few other.

            Don’t forget “we have the votes” and a Senator is in the hospital!

          • TexasCoyote1

            Richard, whether you like it or not, President Trump garnered 63+ million votes. The people who cast those votes are still supportive of his agenda whether or not they are supportive of the man, and I truly believe it is possible to separate the two.

            The protests by the black players in the NFL is far less about police brutality than it is the desire of the black activists to put the black culture to a position of dominance in America. If equality of opportunity were all black activists were after, they would be content at this point. Equal opportunity has been achieved, but that’s not enough for them. They want the buying public to accept their speech, their dress, their music, and the way they present themselves as mainstream. You have only to look at how successful black men like Ben Carson and Charles Barkley have been denigrated by the black activists to understand this isn’t about allowing more black men to achieve success in the US. However, they failed to realize we, the consumer, rejects the black culture. They also failed to realize we now have a President who isn’t afraid to weigh on what he considers disrespect.

          • Richard J. Garfunkel

            Well 68 million voted against the King of Self.The 63 million are starting to abandon ship- incompetency, the Russians, nepotism, emolument violations, relief failures, compromises, unable to get legislation passed and the recognition that he’s a lying con man. But, the other 68 million who voted against him, don’t hate him, they despise him. What fascinates me about the MAGA Morons, who pose as strict constructionists and Constitutional gurus, is that they have no clue what conservatism stands for, has achieved, and whom it helps. These armchair experts gets their primers from Mark Levin, Sean Hannity and Russ Limbaugh, world renown experts on nothing, but political assassination. Have they even sat in a Constitutional Law class, or have they been near a court house, except to pay a traffic fine. Have they ever cracked a book on the Constitution? Hardly! But, they are experts.
            Would they have any clue about James Madison, the Federalist Papers or have they ever even attended college? Would they know what the “Establishment Clause” means, or the “Exclusionary Rule,” or the consequences of Marbury vs. Madison, the Dred Scott Decision, the Dartmouth College Case, Plessy vs. Ferguson, Brown vs the Board of Education, of Topeka, or the rights granted under the Escobedo or Miranda Decisions?
            So, why would you expect that the obdurate clods, who make up the core of the MAGA Moron support for the King of Self, would have any clue about healthcare, taxes, or what makes up Federal law? Do they have any clue that their leader, the King of Self, has backed off the following:
            A. The Debt Limit ceiling
            B. DACA Deportations
            C. The Paris Climate Accords
            D. Scrapping NAFTA
            E. Imposing Border taxes with Mexico
            F. The Great Wall that Mexico will not pay!
            G. The House Budget proposal of $1.2 trillion, which includes few of the Trump promises!
            Do his most ardent acolytes really believe that he is able to cut taxes for corporations from 39.5% to 15%? Will that affect the deficit? You can be on that! Does he really believe that this mythical tax cut would facilitate a deal to repatriate trillions parked in foreign banks? Do the obdurate clods realize that under his tax reform plan, he would eliminate mortgage and state tax deductions from FIT returns which would affect the states where they live, kill their property values, and destroy the home, real estate industry? Do the MAGA Morons think that the end to the Federal Inheritance Tax, which affects 4000 families a year, whose estates are over $12 million, will help them? Do they understand that corporations are now paying the lowest percentage of the Federal Budget in history, and that the end to the Inheritance Tax would cost the Treasury over $500 billion? Who will make up that shortfall? They will! Are they aware that the projected cost for the VA is $10 trillion over the next two generations? Where will that money come from, tax cuts for the rich? Do they understand that the agriculture industry is our largest exporter and we have averaged close to $150 billion in exports out of a total, estimated for 2017, of $194 billion? Who is going to harvest those crops, the MAGA Morons?
            Therefore, aside from alienating the Brits, the South Koreans, the French, the Australians and the Germans, he has praised and gotten closer to the dictator who runs Turkey and the new Philippines strongman. So what has he accomplished? He has offered solace and praise for the Nazis marching in Charlottesville, the White Supremacists who man the KKK, the folks of the Alt-Right who promote race hatred, anti-Semitism and xenophobic views. But, the MAGA Morons already believe The King of Self maybe our greatest president in history. By the way, President Obama left office with a 59% Job Approval Rating, one of the highest since Jack Kennedy and higher than the Teflon Ron!

        Richard, what they insist they must do (NFL players) will ultimately reduce the income available for the players to bargain for. That they angrily refuse to acknowledge this is beyond foolish. Its grade school juvenile and it has nothing to do with their right to do it, which they most assuredly have. That’s not the point at all. The “Kaepernick situation” has legs now because his fellow travelers created them.

        Cordially

        • Richard J. Garfunkel

          They are taking risks, no doubt and the average fan is white, male, older and Republican. What else is new? But the NCAA grosses $10 billion and the NFL $9 billion and without Black athletes they would be back in the Pleistocene Age with regards to money. No one is firing ballplayers, its a show and it will continue. Personally, I am bored with the game and have been for 25-30 years. I liked it better when it was wide open, a bit rougher, less penalties and not coached dominated. But CTE and other head injuries from bigger, strong, faster players has made the game much more dangerous. Personally I don’t think white parents want their kids to play. I was a three sport high school player 54 years ago, gravitated to tennis, won the Palm Beach League Singles 4.5 Open at 69 years old, and beat guys my son’s age. I play racquetball now at LA Fitness. My mother wouldn’t let me play football 58 years ago, and I was happy my son ran track for four years and graduated from Princeton 20 years ago. Call me a center-left, elitist, capitalist. But never forget, that since Truman the Democrats have created twice as many private sector jobs as the GOP , (less public jobs, believe it or not) and the markets have performed five times higher.

          • Bill kennedy

            No Richard, no one is firing players nor should they. Any assertion that only old white Republicans will react to this and that it won’t make any difference may be more of a reflection on your perspective and hopes than on reality. There almost certainly always be enough revenue to support some kind of NFL. The idea that this won’t lead over time to significant revenue reductions is almost certainly wrong. That the whole organization from top to bottom seems to think they are impervious to this the height of hubris and the ones damaged most will ultimately be the black athletes. That they have no idea just how this works will be their undoing.

            The risk from football at the high school level from head injuries is slight and only moderately greater at the college level. I played football through high school and four year of college. I don’t know anyone who died and only two who suffered really serious injuries that would follow them for the est of their lives. I know two people who died in skiing accidents and another lady who lost a leg at her knee.

            As noted its the sheer size and speed of NFL athletes that poss the much greater threat of head injuries. They are offered a great deal of money by any standard to assume this risk. No one makes them and they can quit any time they want. The claim by some that they are somehow slaves is so idiotic it would be mocked if the topic were different.

            I have no clue how old you are and what will be your healthcare future. In a recent Boston University Medical School study 114 out of 115 autopsies of NFL player’s brains should advanced CTE. Is this Fake News about Global Warming or rising tides? There is ample evidence that a youngster starting in Pop Warner football and advancing through HS, college and the pros, has a huge risk regarding brain disease, Alzheimers, etc; Joe Namath and Boomer Esiason are two current examples among hundreds.As for other injuries you cited, I cannot disagree. It is a dangerous sport, middle class whites are starting to avoid.

          • Bill kennedy

            Richard, world wide, we aren’t beset with “rising tides” other than the normal rise and fall.

            What you stated is not that different from what I said. The danger increases with time and then dramatically at the professional level for the reasons cited. The danger to high school football players is small. Lots of other things are more dangerous.

            The average NFL salary is, I believe, just over $2,000,000 per year. They don’t have to play to begin with and they can quit at any time. The decision to play and accept the money…or not… is theirs. That these men demand in various ways to viewed as victims is what all this is about. The fact that they expect to be taken seriously makes quite a powerful statement by itself.

            Skiing has never really been that popular with ” middle class whites” nationwide. Its rather expensive and frequently involves traveling some distance which only makes it more so. Should we regulate it?

            Cordially

          • Richard J. Garfunkel

            That average is way distorted, the minimum is more $420k and most careers, over 75%, are 3 years or less. The minimum salary for a 10 year vet is $900K. All this begs the issue. Take the QB salary and a few others out of the equation and the average would be much lower than $2 m. The issue is their right ,on a national stage to protest many indiscriminate police killings,plain and simple. Who exacerbated the issue? The King of Self, who the NFL would never allow in as an owner.You conservatives will defend anyone, and that anyone is the lowest, lowlife in America. He has no values, no strategy and no plan. He’d sell his mother out if she was still around. But, it seems you MAGA Morons chose him, and either he or the country will go down with him.My guess is that the average conservative despises him, but sees him as a useful tool. Personally, I think he is the worst and most worthless human alive in the country today, and thousands of people who I am touch with, from FB, my old radio show, my former colleagues and friends in Palm beach County agree. They don’t dislike or hate him, they despise him. As for Obama, hate him or love him, he is highly regarding by scores of millions, most of America’s historians, was a Noble Prize Laureate, came from nowhere, had a real education, not a slot at U of P created for him by his father when he transferred from Fordham, was President of the Harvard Law Review, and left office with a 60 year high in job favorability. Trump will not make it two years, but if the GOP lets him off the hook, the 2018 election will be over him, and the new Congress won’t wait long for his impeachment and removal.

          • Bill kennedy

            Yes Richard, and we have a corporate tax rate that is among and possibly the highest in the developed world. Using the same standard we have one of the highest capital gains rates. I believe Ireland’s is either 12% or 15% for example.

            Again, still again, I don’t and haven’t questioned any NFL players “right” to do what they are doing. Their employers have the “right” to say they can’t do it but no government sanction can be used against them nor should it be. Its the howling indignation that anyone would dare disagree with their quest for victimhood that’s both amusing and irritating. The typical reaction to the folks who, in various ways, write their paychecks that don’t like it is… stick it up your nose. They have every “right” to do that too but their apparent inability to understand that the majority of fans don’t like what they are doing and that it will ultimately cost them above all is totally lost on them. They are estranged from the world most of us live in. If they know and don’t care all the previous still applies.

            The minimum I believe is just over $900,000 per year and the guy who raised his leg in the end zone after he scored to show his contempt is negotiating a FIVE year contract and the negotiations are starting at $100,000,000 with a $50,000,000 guarantee. Five years. It would seem opportunity is abundant should one have the right skills black or white. The union has already warned the players to start saving money because the owners will lock them out in 2021 when the contract is up. Not one in one hundred will do that and they will blame their hardship on others. They will have far less money to negotiate for as a result of what they are doing. What they have a “right” to do is irrelevant to that.

            The governments own stats on who does what to whom going back over half a century are available to anyone who wants to look. To say they paint a stark picture of where the violence is concentrated is an understatement. The cross racial stats are also available. They are just the opposite of what we are told and not by just a little.

            The number of police shootings of black men isn’t going up, its going down and the police shoot more white people every year than black. The fact that black men are shot out of proportion to their numbers doesn’t change that one bit.

            Search Clover South Carolina police shooting (Feb. 2014) There are lots more like it but you are “protected” from knowing about them.

          Conservatives, Reality, Compassion and Voodoo Economics
          Richard J. Garfunkel

          I am constantly amazed at what I hear from conservatives. When I ask what they are for, these are the usual answers: smaller government, tax cuts (most often a flat-tax), a balanced budget, de-regulation on business, a larger defense budget and an end to corrupt government.
          When I go further and ask how they reconcile the problem of balancing the budget with a larger Defense allocation and tax cuts, I get always the same old vague answer about cleaning up corruption in government, the elimination of unnecessary departments and expenditures. It is interesting that when one analyses the two budgets; the Discretionary and the Mandatory (Social Security and Medicare), they don’t want to touch benefits in the latter. When one breaks down the Discretionary Budget, funded by the Federal Income Tax (FIT) as opposed to the Mandatory Budget, funded by Payroll taxes, certain realities are apparent.
          To make it simple of the two budgets, assuming they were combined- 29% are allocated to the Discretionary budget, 65% to the Mandatory Budget and 6% to Debt Service (paying the interest on the National Debt). The Mandatory Budget consists of the following: 55% to Social Security and Labor, 36% to Medicare and health, 6% to transportation, 3% to Veteran’s benefits and 5% to Food and Agriculture. As for the Discretionary Budget, which can be changed on a fiscal year basis or as necessary, the Defense Department (the Military) receives 55%, Social Security and Labor -5%, Medicare and Health 5%, Housing 5%, Government 6%, the VA 6%, Education 6%, International 3%, Science 3% , Transportation 2% and Food and Agricultural 1%.
          One could readily assume that if one looked at the Discretionary Budget and wanted to raise Defense spending and keep stable additional costs regarding Social Security, labor, Medicare and Health and the VA, the percentage of the that budget would be 71% and would increase with more Defense spending. If one didn’t raise taxes, where would the extra money come from? The rest of the Discretionary Budget consists of the following: Government, Housing, Education, International, Science, Transportation, Food & Agricultural.
          Could we afford to eliminate or reduce our International Budget (Foreign Aid, consulates, embassies, travel-3%), Science-3%, and Transportation -3%? So what is left and who does it impact? There is our government (6%). Well if you eliminate some departments that expense will be reduced. But, of the total Budget, that leaves Housing (6%) and Education (6%). What would those cuts do to the people, often the poorest in our society, and who need those services the most?
          Now, of course, if you lower taxes by eliminating the Federal Inheritance Tax (on 5400 families) – estimated at $269 billion over the next generation, cut the FIT (flat-tax) from its current 39.5% on the top bracket and assume the estimated huge increase in Veteran’s needs ($5-10 trillion) will go away, where will we get the money? Is that the way to address the issue of the Balanced Budget, the conservative’s greatest concern? George HW Bush, called this Voodoo Economics in the 1980 Election when he ran against Ronald Reagan. Has anything really changed in their mathematics or their priorities?

          • Bill kennedy

            Richard, The percent of GDP allocated to defense is smaller than at any time prior to WWII. There will never be enough money to address all the problems the collectivists want solved or simply invent. The hard political left in and out of the US demands that the US taxpayer address every grievance real and imagined for the last 400 years to their satisfaction..or else. That so many folks in my country buy this is what’s alarming.

            Again, federal revenue grew explosively from 1980-1988. That the debt also increased is entirely the point.

            Cordially

          • Richard J. Garfunkel

            Keep on calling it the Death Tax. It isn’t going to be repealed and the exemption should be reduced by 50%. We have had it in one form another since 1898 and almost every county of the world has similar taxes. We have needs as a country and the replacement of that $500-700 billion is going to be needed as obligations for the coming VA need starts to surge, estimated at over $10 trillion in the next few generations. Why any sane person would carry water for 4000 families is beyond my ken.

    “Some fans, if they reacted at all, happily clapped and cheered
    during protests, but others did not, and they angrily let their home
    teams know it.”

    “Yet the TV networks mostly avoided crowd shots Sunday, so there was never a chance for viewers to see fans jeering players.”

    If you read exactly what’s written, we might just as well have seen cheering fans as jeering fans.

    If kneeling is disrespectful, why is it done in churches?

    Focus on Puerto Rico, not this divisive nonsense. It woulda remained one or two players instead of the entire league if Trump had just kept his foul mouth shut.

    • J Whitehurst

      Let me explain it to you slowly. One is kneeling to pray to God and the other is a total disrespect for our flag, country and the excellent people who have served and are serving to protect this nation. These God complex crybabies had their wimpy feathers ruffled and just threw another tantrum. Don’t mix apples with oranges.

      • bcmarshall

        Let me guess. You’re white, right?

        • J Whitehurst

          Actually, native American. Typical response from a bleeding heart liberal bafoon. Lose the argument and immediately throw the race card even without knowing the truth. It gets difficult to know which orifice you libtards are talking out of.

          • bcmarshall

            Sorry, but I don’t believe you. I asked because the entire “disrespecting the flag, country, military, first responders, etc.” argument is a white argument. It’s been created by people who won’t or don’t understand the motivations of those who take a knee and who interject their own (actually Trump’s) interpretation because it’s the only thing they can wrap their own head around from their own perspective. It’s the same people who call BLM a “terrorist” organization, with no understanding of social justice (or more correctly, injustice).

            But it’s ok. The Dotard-in-Chief has again successfully fanned flames and now it’s spread across the entire NFL instead of one or two players. It’s gonna grow, not go away. Get used to it.

            And I’m not losing anything, especially not to you. You conservatards are far worse. You’d much prefer to focus on something divisive like this rather than unifying issues like human suffering in Puerto Rico that I assume even you care about.

          • J Whitehurst

            Again, another comment from the unknowing. You believe only white people believe it’s a matter of disrespect. You believe only whites don’t understand why they are taking a knee. You believe only white conservatives voted for Trump. You believe only white people think BLM is a terrorist organization. I guess only white people weren’t smart enough to believe the garbage that the hilldebeast was spewing. I do not have to prove my ethnic background to wear with a chip on my shoulder as you clearly do. I am not conservative or liberal and I am one of those independent voters who makes an informed choice. You are more of a racist than I could ever try to be.
            These clowns took a knee because their feelings got hurt by one person expressing his opinion, not for injustice or your favorite mantra “racism”. You continue to beat that dead horse every time.

            If black lives really mattered to BLM, they would be working their backsides off to stop the black on black violence instead of rioting, looting and demanding white people in Kentucky give their homes to blacks. They are no better than the KKK or the Nazis and deserve no respect either.

            As for Puerto Rico, my thoughts and prayers (said while kneeling) are with them. Additionally, I have contributed to assist with their plight. However, you probably won’t believe that either because you loser liberals can’t grasp the real truth since we don’t worship your truth and follow like lemmings. The truth is really not as jaded as you keep trying to stuff down our throats.

          • Mark Garber

            Where do these liberal idiots come from and how do they multiply so fast?

        • scot_belle

          Racist…..much? No where did J Whitehurst….mention anyone’s skin color, nor was there any form of racial disparagement. Our Military…encompasses Black, White, Hispanic, American Indian, Hawaiian, etc., etc. So not one skin color was left out…with the phrase “the excellent people who have served and are serving to protect this nation.”

          Before you sink to more racial insults, I am of MIXED Heritage, and I have cousins of every skin color. Yes. I am damn proud of my ethnic mixes!!

          • J Whitehurst

            I believe bcmarshall is too busy washing the bad taste out of their mouth after they removed their backside from it to respond in a reasonable manner.

          • scot_belle

            Noticed a response….much later, and yes, bcmarshall appears to be not only in support of the insulting actions, I am certain a full blown… CNN’er.
            …………………….No surprise, considering the Alinsky tactics. 🙂

          • bcmarshall

            I’m in support of protest. “Insulting actions” is your interpretation because you obviously can’t wrap your head around injustice.

          • bcmarshall

            Not a racial insult. It’s a statement of fact. White people choose to throw respect for the military, “those who died”, and all that other stuff into an action that has nothing at all to do with that interpretation. They arrive at it through their own bias.

        • Stacy Deitz

    • Btty

      Don’t even try to blame our President for this behavior! These are a bunch of over paid, spoiled Prima Donna’s. President Trump has a right to speak his mind. They all should have thought about the reactions to their action of kneeling and linking arms during our countries anthem. They should show respect to all who have died so they can have the freedoms this country provides! They were to arrogant to think the fans wouldn’t stand with them.
      As for kneeling in church? What a stupid question! Kneeling in church is respect, kneeling during our National anthem is total disrespect and YOU know it. I hope to God fans boycott these SOB’s until at the very least they stop this behavior and apologize!

      • bcmarshall

        No, of course I wouldn’t try to blame Dear Leader for throwing gasoline on smoldering embers!

        He is POTUS. He’s not just a private citizen mouthing off like you and me, and what he says, as this little experiment shows, matters. Witness “Little Rocket Man”, or that the Nazis are “fine people”, as examples. He’s supposed to represent the entire nation, and not just those 33% who still support him, but he doesn’t understand that. That’s why he’s at historic low approval rates.

        This has NOTHING to do with the military or dead soldiers or any of that garbage. That’s the interpretation given to their actions by whites who don’t have a clue what the players are protesting.

        • Btty

          Oh really? Our President didn’t start this chit and you know it! Let’s get to the military first. You’re dead wrong, yes I said dead wrong if you don’t think this disrespect isn’t about those who have given their lives so these pieces of chit can enjoy the freedoms we have in America. NO, they didn’t give their lives so these MF’ers could have the right to dishonor our country and flag! We all know why they did it, we don’t need your version of why they did it. President Trump was voicing what we all have been thinking ( except you of course). You got one thing right, Trump is the President of the United States! He has a right to say whatever he wants. His rights didn’t fly out the window because he became our President. Trump poured gasoline on embers? You might backup and really take a serious look at why this crap started. Where the heii were you when these idiots walked out on the field with their hands in the air? By the way facts may escape you but they bought that lie and took it to the stadiums where people want to watch a game not BS. Why is it okay for them to disrespect our flag and anthem but it’s not okay for Tebow to bow his head in prayer? No, there’s a double standard here and we the fans are fed up! They are getting exactly what they deserve and you’re a fool to support this behavior! As for President Trump being PC? We didn’t elect him to be another Obama failure! I love his comment about “ROCKET MAN” Finally we have a man with a set of b-lls in the WH.

          • bcmarshall

            Tee hee! Rocket Man!

            You loved it, right?

            This has nothing to do with balls. It’s the kind of juvenile crap that starts wars.

          • Btty

            You’re a coward! You don’t have the ability to see that ROCKET MAN has gotten away with his crap for over 25 years. Every President has kicked the can down the road and President Trump now has to deal with it. Pull your pants up big boy because deal with it he will and should. Thankfully if and when a war starts you will never hear of ROCKET MAN again!

        Very no information racist

    • TexasCoyote1

      Kneeling in church is a sign of supplication. Kneeling during the anthem is a sign of disrespect. It’s all in the intent. These protestors intent is to call attention to a situation that is mostly the fault of the black kids who were not taught to respect authority.

      When the black culture accepts that it is inferior to the white culture, this county will finally get back on track.

    • Mark Garber

      Boy are really stupid equating praying with protesting. I dont think I have ever hear such a dumb statement.

They should remember who gave them the privilege to make the outrages profits they are benefitting. Get up off your A**es and support the United States and the current President.

          Don’t watch the first five minutes. DVR the game like I do. Who cared before? Few did! It was the King of Self, who brought up the insult while he was campaigning for Luther the Strange,another adulterer, like Trump. Boswell tells us that Samuel Johnson made this famous pronouncement that “patriotism is the last refuge of a scoundrel” on the evening of April 7, 1775. How true in the King of Self’s case.
          The King of Self bought a deferment from some specious doctor because of bone spurs! Can anyone swallow that tripe? Bone spurs at the age of 22? What Medical War Board evaluated that humpty-dumpty diagnosis? But, of course the King is now the protector of the Flag, but certainly not the people of America. https://www.teenvogue.com/story/donald-trump-dodged-the-draft-5-times

            Richard, Humpty Dumpty told Alice in “Through the Looking Glass” that ” When I use a word it means just what I choose it to mean neither more nor less.” This seems to aptly describe the highly compensated professional athlete’s approach to protesting. Of course and unfortunately the folks who write their paychecks (fans) are just too stupid to understand they aren’t being disrespectful because…mostly they refuse to say they aren’t. The preferred rebuttal seems to be to urge fans to just stop watching. This is unfathomably stupid.

            Cordially

      • Bill kennedy

        Yes Richard, it certainly is and they have it. However they can’t seem to get together on exactly what it is they are “protesting.” When Kaepernick wore his pink police pig shoes and talked wistfully about Cuba and the advantages of living in a Marxist country it shouldn’t surprise you when the rest of them get associated with that…particularly when they aren’t the least bit enthusiastic about renouncing Mr. K.

      • TexasCoyote1

    • Richard J. Garfunkel

      Why should anyone support the King of Self? You didn’t support the last president, so why should we support this sexual predator, con man, serial adulterer, and the head of a Borgia-style crime family. Where are his taxes? By the way, when Counsel Mueller submits a 1500 page bill of attainder describing his collusion, his money-laundering, his treason and his deals with the Russian Mafia banks, what will the MAGA Morons say? Will you clowns stick with this con man? His TrumpCareLess healthcare plan was a sham, and his tax cut plan is a giveaway to the rich. So what about the proverbial swamp: Price, Pruitt and Mnuchin and their government spendathon on travel, etc?

      • ProudPatriot

        I may not have agreed with much that Obama did, but I didn’t riot. I didn’t loot. I didn’t protest violently in the streets. I just voted and was thankful when 2016 came around. Sounds like someone may be a sore loser.

        • Richard J. Garfunkel

          Where were the riots? After police shootings? You must have forgotten the Draft riots in 1862. You must have forgotten the riots against blacks in Detroit in 1943! You must have forgotten a lot of things. I know whites have been persecuted, but let’s be really serious: 1000 lynchings between 1900 and 1960. Keep it real!

          • bcmarshall

            The problem, Richard, is that you’re speaking in facts. Conservatards don’t understand facts. Look at these posts. One after another they say the same thing. Disrespecting the military and those who died. Disrespecting the flag. Disrespecting the country, even though not one athlete said any such thing.

            They just have no clue as to what the protest is about and no matter how many times it’s repeated, they likely never will.

      • Richard Altans

        My comment was dealing with the respect for our country, which I see you have none.

  • NCnative

    My problem is that my favorite team is not one that disrespected the flag nor the anthem, and I wish them the best, but they have to play other teams that do disrespect the flag and the anthem, so I have chosen not to watch my team play, because it requires me to also watch other teams that I can’t respect. I have heard it over and over that the players do respect the national banner and the anthem, but until they prove it by taking their protest off the field and out of the stadium, they really don’t respect them enough.

    • TexasCoyote1

      It’s time for the officials in the stadiums to start doing something about the protestors like was done in the preseason in Cleveland. Just remove them and not let them play in the game because they are jailed. Hold them for 3 hours and let them go. They can still catch their planes home.

      • Richard J. Garfunkel

        No protests, no freedom! Sounds like fascism, Coyote.

          Protests illicit change. But what change are they even protesting for? Black Lives Matter? Try telling that to other black people, since the vast majority of violence is black on black.

        • TexasCoyote1

          If you were a Jewish couple out for their anniversary dinner and every time their waiter approached their table, he clicked his heels together and gave them the Sig Heil, would it not be reasonable for the couple to excuse themselves and go somewhere else for dinner. The waiter did not harm the couple, but he offended them while at work. The restaurant manager would certainly be justified in firing the waiter.

          The actions of the players, while at work, are offensive to me, the customer, so I have exercised my right to take my business elsewhere by canceling my Sunday Ticket subscription and will boycott the NFL.

    When the “fans” start throwing bottles of widdle , bags of excrement and anything else they can get their hands on at the “kneelers”, in an effort to express their total and absolute abhorrence of the “antics” of these so called “protesters”, the “cameras” won’t miss a second of that “news worthy” display.
    Regards

    • TexasCoyote1

      They won’t show that just like they didn’t broadcast the boo’s that went up in response to the kneeling protestors because they don’t fit the narrative.

      The media must be horrified that their skewed coverage hasn’t delivered their “hate Trump” result.

      • JWB

        Hello TC1,
        it’s possible your “prediction” is correct, but I visualize, if and when the spectators become more agitated, their expressions of displeasure might go from “boos” to a significantly more aggressive form of rebuttal and then the MSM will be more than willing to “feature” this “news” and “spin” this bellicose outpouring as “racist”, inspired by, as you have eluded, President Trump.
        Regards

        • TexasCoyote1

          JWB, when you boil it down what you have in the bottom of the pan is all racist goo. The black activists are the ones making it racist IMHO. They don’t seem to just want equality. They want to dominate; they want to wipe out the white culture.

          This is lose-lose for both races. It’s impossible to be factual anymore without being a racist. Customers don’t want a business’ employees to dress, speak and present themselves as the ghetto blacks do. That’s why they can’t find jobs. They say the employers are racist, and it’s true, but as the NFL owners are about to find out, you have to make the customer happy, or they take their money and go elsewhere.

          • JWB

            Agreed TC1,
            For many of the “black activists” and their following the Caucasian is the enemy with a mindset solution of dominance or perhaps preferred elimination.
            Equality and “partnership”, I pray, is still the rule rather than the exception and we will withstand this latest assault on civility.
            And as any good business person will tell you, the only “color” that matters is GREEN.

    A “TYPICAL EXAMPLE” of how THE MASS MEDIA tries to slant their coverage to suit their Agenda and control the thinking of most people!! Television now becomes a total waste of time!!!

  • bcmarshall

    The simplest solution to this is to remove the anthem from the games completely. What does it have to do with football? Absolutely nothing!

    I’ll bet those of you who protest this don’t put your Dorito’s and beer down and get up out of your easy chair when they play it if you’re at home watching.

    Pure hypocrisy.

    • Dulcie A. Covington

      You stupid nut ,they always play the Anthem of another country,that the opposing players
      are from.IT is a sign of RESPECT of that country.something these overpaid babies don’t seem to know.

      • bcmarshall

        Not at the Olympics. They play it for the Gold Medal winner.

        And it is a national victory in that case.

    • JWB

      Greetings
      bc,
      the only time, before this “uproar” over players kneeling, sitting or not participating in the opening ceremonies, which are dictated by the NFL rules committee to include our National Anthem and the honoring of our Flag, that the “networks” broadcast of this “pomp and circumstance” have been limited to the super bowl, playoff games or other “special” event games. ONLY, after the “executives” felt the allure of ratings, and there has been a spike, did the media choose to televise this time honored “ceremony”.
      As far as the “beer and Doritos”, while in ones home your personal behavior is not on display for the world to see and therefore has absolutely no significance.
      Best Regards

      • bcmarshall

        I agree that the networks covered it more than normal, but Trump’s remarks made it newsworthy. Why else would they have chosen that day to cover it? Again, it’s a response to the Divider-in-Chief’s foul remarks.

        And the way you responded, “patriotism” (standing up, hand over heart, etc) only matters if someone else is looking.

        I know you didn’t exactly mean it that way, but that is the message you’re sending. If I’m on my couch watching the game in my underwear then who cares, but if somebody else can see me, well, that’s a different story!

        Doesn’t really sound all that patriotic to me. What about you?

        • JWB

          bc,
          Of course President Trump’s “remarks”, which were an accurate representation of the thoughts of many Americans, made this spectacle more “enticing” to the media outlets, whose “disenchantment” with Mr. Trump has been obvious on every occasion. These broadcasters seized the opportunity to again “bemoan” the Commander in Chief, to the delight of some and the dismay of many others. I contend that any man who has had the “privilege” to serve as the leader of this country could justifiably , or perhaps deservingly, be termed the “divider”, as the challenge of unification is insurmountable, by anyones expectations.
          Ones “patriotism” should not be judged or quantified by a single act, but rather by a collective experience as a citizen of a particular nation and a personal opinion of another’s “loyalty” is just that, an opinion. Protocol does not require an individual, “in their underwear”, in the privacy of their home to stand, salute and recite the “Pledge of Allegiance”, but in a public setting, which one has chosen to participate, it is considered respectful, responsible and in some circles required, not in order to solely express ones patriotism but to adhere to the acceptable ceremony of a particular “event”.
          I’ll pray that “cooler” heads, yours and mine?, will prevail and this latest “dust up” will be reconciled by all parties and at some point the Greatness of America will overshadow the shortcomings once again.
          Best Regards.

          • bcmarshall

            Trump’s remarks may well have been a “accurate representation” of the thoughts of many, but they were also offensive to many more. When the POTUS gets up and calls players “sons of bit ches”, yeah, that does tend to generate media interest.

            You want to blame the broadcasters, but the reality is that they only showed what was happening. They didn’t force hundreds and hundreds of players to take a knee. They just reported on it. Maybe it’s time that you quit blaming the messenger.

            You say the “challenge of unification is insurmountable”, and while in a broad sense I agree (you’ll never get everyone to agree the sky is blue, for example), it’s no excuse for giving up.

            “In order to attain the impossible, one must attempt the absurd.” – Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra, Spanish writer (1547-1616)

            “Ones ‘patriotism’ should not be judged or quantified by a single act,
            but rather by a collective experience as a citizen of a particular
            nation and a personal opinion of another’s ‘loyalty’ is just that, an
            opinion.”

            I couldn’t agree with you more! But that’s exactly what this entire thread is about.

            I think most people in this country are already ready to move on, but Trump is a genius at seizing something to divide and outrage people. It won’t go away any time soon.

          • JWB

            Afternoon bc,
            I appreciate your reply, but I am compelled to correct, and my apologies if my previous post was misleading, a couple of your assumptions concerning my viewpoint. President Trump and the MSM have and will continue to maintain a less than cordial relationship for the duration and I will suggest that it has become ponderous and distracting from more important “matters”. The “punch” , “counterpunch” methodology by both parties is counterproductive and undesirable. I don’t and haven’t “blamed” the news media, the President or anyone else for the “messages” that are being delivered, although the techniques , imho, could be improved dramatically.
            Also, just because the “mountain” is high and formidable does not mean that all efforts should not be taken to “conquer” it’s peaks. “Concordia” , as distant as it always is, should and is a noble quest for any “leader” of the masses. But in reality it is a daunting preoccupation and elusive to even the greatest of diplomats.
            “You can please some of the people all of the time, you can please all of the people some of the time, but you can’t please all of the people all of the time”.
            ( Poet John Lydgate and “refined” by President Lincoln)
            Personally, I always make a concerted effort to not personally attack anyone for their opinions and “contributions” no matter how controversial they may be and prefer a more intellectual “conversation” and have good intentions with anyone willing to join the dialogue.
            bc, Thank You the opportunity to “set the record straight” on any misconceptions brought about by my prior posting.
            Peace and Best Regards

    I really think, so the Media Tells the Truth every Fan who Hates this Display of Insanity from these Teams should turn their Back on these Teams and Then Walkout out in Protest so their is No Mistake how Much hate we have for what they have done to our Country, These Players could protest any place they want against the people they have a Grievance with but they picked our Country’s Pride, Their Country, it’s nothing more then Liberal Political BS that Americans are Fed up With. Boycott yes, but the Liberal Media hides our Hatred of this we need to do something they can’t hide from the American People.

    • TexasCoyote1

      I think the half-empty seats in the stadiums and the news is even having to report that viewership is down double-digit numbers. DirecTV went against their policy of not refunding the Sunday Ticket because they have been flooded with subscribers canceling their subscription. I know this is true because I canceled my subscription on Monday and they refunded my subscription fully.

    • TexasCoyote1

      Kaepernick is a toxic player. He’s such an angry, undisciplined young man no team in its right mind would take him on regardless of how talented he might be.

      After all the negative publicity that has been heaped on the NFL and the loss of ticket buyers and TV viewership, the teams will be lucky to be able to afford the players they have.

Its all about politics because the liberal left cannot stand the fact that Trump is the president and in their pea brain minds they relate the flag and national anthem attacks as being an attack against the president without any clue that they are disgracing and embarrassing the country. Hostile world leader are loving it and these goofballs are to dumb to realize what their doing.

The NFL and owners are to blame to allow this circus to continue. Any real leader would put their rules in place. So owners and the NFL…you are not leaders and you’re losing business! You give fines for an end zone celebration but nothing for disrespecting the American Flag and the majority of your customers! I’m not watching these overpaid cry babies anymore. I won’t give money to the NFL. As I see it, if this continues, these players won’t have any platform anymore. No fans paying, no sponsors, no money!

  • Richard J. Garfunkel

    The MAGA Morons and The King of Self
    By Richard J. Garfunkel
    What fascinates me about the MAGA Morons, who pose as strict constructionists and Constitutional gurus, is that they have no clue what conservatism stands for, has achieved, and whom it helps. These armchair experts gets their primers from Mark Levin, Sean Hannity and Russ Limbaugh, world renown experts on nothing, but political assassination. Have they even sat in a Constitutional Law class, or have they been near a court house, except to pay a traffic fine. Have they ever cracked a book on the Constitution? Hardly! But, they are experts. Would they have any clue about James Madison, the Federalist Papers or have they ever even attended college? Would they know what the “Establishment Clause” means, or the “Exclusionary Rule,” or the consequences of Marbury vs. Madison, the Dred Scott Decision, the Dartmouth College Case, Plessy vs. Ferguson, Brown vs the Board of Education, of Topeka, or the rights granted under the Escobedo or Miranda Decisions? So, why would you expect that the obdurate clods, who make up the core of the MAGA Moron support for the King of Self, would have any clue about healthcare, taxes, or what makes up Federal law? Do they have any clue that their leader, the King of Self, has backed off the following:
    A. The Debt Limit ceiling
    B. DACA Deportations
    C. The Paris Climate Accords
    D. Scrapping NAFTA
    E. Imposing Border taxes with Mexico
    F. The Great Wall that Mexico will not pay!
    G. The House Budget proposal of $1.2 trillion, which includes few of the Trump promises!
    Do his most ardent acolytes really believe that he is able to cut taxes for corporations from 39.5% to 15%? Will that affect the deficit? You can be on that! Does he really believe that this mythical tax cut would facilitate a deal to repatriate trillions parked in foreign banks? Do the obdurate clods realize that under his tax reform plan, he would eliminate mortgage and state tax deductions from FIT returns which would affect the states where they live, kill their property values, and destroy the home, real estate industry? Do the MAGA Morons think that the end to the Federal Inheritance Tax, which affects 4000 families a year, whose estates are over $12 million, will help them? Do they understand that corporations are now paying the lowest percentage of the Federal Budget in history, and that the end to the Inheritance Tax would cost the Treasury over $500 billion? Who will make up that shortfall? They will! Are they aware that the projected cost for the VA is $10 trillion over the next two generations? Where will that money come from, tax cuts for the rich? Do they understand that the agriculture industry is our largest exporter and we have averaged close to $150 billion in exports out of a total, estimated for 2017, of $194 billion? Who is going to harvest those crops, the MAGA Morons?
    Therefore, aside from alienating the Brits, the South Koreans, the French, the Australians and the Germans, he has praised and gotten closer to the dictator who runs Turkey and the new Philippines strongman. So what has he accomplished? He has offered solace and praise for the Nazis marching in Charlottesville, the White Supremacists who man the KKK, the folks of the Alt-Right who promote race hatred, anti-Semitism and xenophobic views. But, the MAGA Morons already believe The King of Self maybe our greatest president in history. By the way, President Obama left office with a 59% Job Approval Rating, one of the highest since Jack Kennedy and higher than the Teflon Ron!

          • bcmarshall

            I’m not gonna waste time arguing with you. He served 6 years, and fought in Afghanistan. He was just as much a veteran as you are. Why don’t you read his words?

            “I believe that the athletes who were protesting are just as patriotic and feel as strongly about our country, the flag and what it means as much as anyone else. Black problems in our nation as Americans should be OUR problems.

            Those who wish to reinforce oppression in our country hide behind good people — many who I’m sure mean no harm but simply don’t receive racial injustice as their problem.

            Many are simply unwilling to understand. When large numbers of fans around the league do things like boo President Obama during a 9/11 message, I have to ask myself, What is their priority? The memory of those we lost, or expressing their dislike for our country’s leader for simply stating that he supports all Americans’ First Amendment rights?

            Most fans accepted me as a veteran, former 911 operator, patriot and singer of the anthem but far too many fans seemed to reject issues that effect not just me, a black veteran and an American but all of us.

            As a victim of police misconduct I recognize the need for the protest. I
            was falsely arrested and that arrest dictated what opportunities were
            available to me in life. I’m pretty sure that covers the systematic oppression part of the protest.

            At the end of the day people promote what they care about. However OUR
            American issue on race seems to be rejected while others are constantly
            pushed on the NFL platform.

            Some players have to protest because it’s the only time the country is forced to pay attention. Until the vast majority of fans and, most importantly, Americans sitting in the stadiums and at home are just as upset and inspired to work as equalizers in their everyday thoughts and actions, bad people are going to use them to manipulate the narrative.

            Since my resignation, I’ve received numerous expressions of positive
            reinforcement and support from people of all backgrounds, ages and
            positions on the subject. However, too large a volume of feedback has
            been negative and hurtful. One moment I’m a hero, the next I am scum.

            What was the turning point? People now know that I understand and support the need for bringing awareness to social injustice and encourage using the anthem as a vehicle — a reaction I expected that plays largely into
            why I made my decision. I’m happy that people are being forced to have a
            conversation now, but if the topic of social injustice isn’t ‘welcome’
            then neither am I.

            I’m forever thankful for the fans who understand my position and continue to work as equalizers in their everyday thoughts and actions.” – Sgt. Joey Odoms

          • Billy Bong

            Sgt Joey Odoms was the anthem singer for the ravens!!!!! That wasn’t the disrespectful piece of trash that was on his knee at Arlington!

          • Billy Bong

            I told you that the protest has gotten to the Tomb of the Forgotten Soldier. A man took a knee during the playing of “Taps” and you said that man was a veteran. HE IS NOT A VETERAN. THE PROTEST YOU ARE SUPPORTING IS STRICTLY AGAINST VETERANS! YOU SUPPORT THESE PROTESTS AND ARE THEREFORE A COMMUNIST TRYING TO DESTROY THE COUNTRY

          • bcmarshall

            We are talking about two different things. I did not understand and my comment was not directed towards any Arlington protest. In fact, I was unaware of it. You saw what I posted.

            A protest there I would consider inappropriate as well. I didn’t even know about it so I have no idea who it was or whether he was a veteran. I was speaking about Odom whose history is known and documented.

            We were quite literally talking about two different things.

            Now that we are on the same page I can at least disagree with what you’re saying in reference to the same specific incident. While I agree that the protest itself at Arlington was inappropriate, you have taken that to include the football and now baseball protest, and you have chosen to extend your rightfully offended feeling at that incident to the larger group of protesters.

            I can’t and won’t try to defend the actions of one unknown person but I know how it started and what it is intended to convey. It had nothing to do with veterans.

            My computer has died and I am answering on my phone which is something I will not be able to continue to do. I may not be able to respond to some posts for a while.

          • Billy Bong

            The point is, nobody knows what the point of kneeling during the anthem protest is. It only appears that these people hate their veterans and their country.

          • bcmarshall

            I hate answering on my phone.

            To say “nobody knows” what the point of the protests is is a ridiculous statement. Of course people know. That gets back to the race issue I was talking about earlier. Maybe white people don’t understand and don’t know, but black people certainly do.

            CNN recently aired a poll that said that 59% of white people think the protesters are doing the wrong thing, while 82% of black people think the protesters are doing the right thing. There is a huge racial divide on this, and I think it is totally biased and unfair of you to suggest that nobody understands what they are doing and why they are doing it. I’m sorry, but that is absurd.

            I could totally accept it if you said that you did not understand, but to imply that the people who are actually protesting have no idea why they are doing it is ludicrous.

          • Billy Bong

            Any protest that has no clear objective is completely ineffective. Also, when a protest appears to be set against one group of people, veterans, military, and the whole country, it makes people mad, people become offended and withdraw. What is kneeling doing? Just pissing people off. Kap kneeled because he can’t stand for a country of racists. Other players kneeled for Kap. Then a lot of players kneeled against Trump. So what is the clear objective? The thing clear now is kneeling during the anthem is anti military and anti country

          • bcmarshall

            That’s an absurd comment. If you want to say you don’t know, that’s fine, but to say that “nobody knows” is a true insult. Taking your comment literally is to say that those protesting are too stupid to even know why they’re doing it.

            Trust me. They know.

            Ok, so Keapernick took a knee so because he couldn’t stand for a country that treated blacks badly. The next year, others took a knee because Keapernick didn’t get back in the NFL. Then, a bunch of them took a knee because Trump called them SOB’s. The appearance of consistency is, first time, he hates his country and vets, second time, they hate their country and vets, third time, they ALL hate their country and vets

          • bcmarshall

            Well at least you agree that Trump poured gasoline on embers.

            “Then, a bunch of them took a knee because Trump called them SOB’s.”

            But your entire premise that this has anything to do with hating country or hating vets is just absurd. It’s how you want to see it.

          • Billy Bong

            BTW, you referred to me as”Mr. Warfighter.” That’s a condescending swipe a me serving you to support your freedoms and die for them. That is exactly what I was saying. You hate the country, you hate veterans, and you are letting us know. Roger that. Keep it up.

          • bcmarshall

            Well, first off, looks like you agree that you’re an idiot when you attacked Huffington Post. Now that rags that you are willing to accept have the same story, you’re ignoring that and off on something else.

            You’re the one that screamed that you’re a warfighter. What does that mean exactly? That because you served you can’t be wrong? I’m not denigrating your service at all, but even you can’t tell me that a veteran is infallible and can’t be wrong.

            You’re a vet, and that’s fine, but it doesn’t make you even close to being right. You’re projecting your views on someone else’s actions instead of listening to them. That makes you a fool, vet or not.

        • TexasCoyote1

          Agree or don’t agree isn’t the issue. As an American you should respect certain things that are American. The Pledge of Allegiance, The singing of the National Anthem–these are all symbols of what we love about our country. The showing of respect for these symbols binds the citizens together. Disrespect blows everyone apart.

          Now, with Odelle Beckham’s latest stupidity of symbolic peeing on the President, this spiral of disrespect is continuing to get farther and farther out of control. The good, honest, hard-working people of this country are going to bring this back to the center and maybe even a little more to the right and racial tensions are going to increase as a result.

          I don’t see this ending well. I see Watts burning and the unnecessary deaths of innocent blacks, too.

          • bcmarshall

            I want to scream! Honestly, and not at you. I just want to scream in frustration because I can see that you really, honestly do not understand.

            POTUS referred to protesting players as SOB’s, right? Even you aren’t going to say no to that. So what is a bit ch? It’s a female dog, right? So by extension, any son of a bit ch is a dog, right?

            THAT’S the message he was sending. Treat me like dog and I’ll act like one!

    • KHOW

      First I must say you’re a very rude and very nasty person. This article was about a flag and you disrespected every PRESIDENT Trump supporter anyway!

      However,
      Obamas approval rating was a lie. Don’t preach polls when polls said President Trump would never win!

      I don’t recommend preaching court cases either because law is based on ones Interpretation of the law and their are cases which will counter your argument.

      every family who owns a house or a small business has an estate. That
      Is not 4,000 jerk!! People’s home and earnings were already taxed. If I want to leave my house or business to my kids, no government should take tax on property that was already taxed. This was just another way for liberals like you could take more money! We’re taxed for everything and anything! Enough! You’re such a moron!!

      corporations in American are paying the 3rd highest tax rate in the world. Hence, which is why people are moving their money and businesses offshore. You really are not that smart!

      Taxation is theft! The government needs to cut back on their fraudulent spending and stop playing Robin Hood with other people’s hard earned money. Your basically punishing someone who makes more income. Perhaps the fraud, the swamp and morons like yourself who likes to preach like a liberal professor are the real problem.

      Americans who believe in hard work, LEGAL and not illegal immigration, closed boarders and not having nearly half the country living off the government is what going to bring down the deficit if taxes are lowered, more people are working and paying into the system will absolutely make America prosper. Corporations hire people. The government uses taxpayer money to hire people. Let me see, I go with the private sector!!

      MAGA.

      You are really a moron!!

    Ta
    ke A Knee

    Take a little trip, without shoes or gloves or food, to Valley Forge in January. Hold an enemy musket ball in your fingers and imagine it smashing through your flesh and shattering bones. There
    won’t be a doctor or trainer to assist you until after the battle, so just wait your turn. Take your socks off to get the real experience. Imagine the wounded and starving men around you dying in the snow as the temperature that winter dropped to over 30
    below zero.

    Then take a knee.

    Then, take a knee at the beach in Normandy where man after American man stormed the beach, even as the one in front of him was shot to pieces. The very sea turned red with American blood.

    The only blockers most had were the dead bodies in front of them, riddled with bullets from enemy fire.

    But, don’t forget to take that knee and raise that clenched fist.

    Take another knee in the sweat soaked jungles of Vietnam as you pull hundreds of leeches off of you every day. From Khe Sanh to Saigon … anywhere will do. Several hundred thousand Americans
    were wounded or died in all of those jungles, a few thousand of their bodies rotted and were never found. There was no playbook that told them what was next, but they knew what flag, nation, people and ideals they represented. When they came home, they were
    protested as well … and spit on for reasons only cowards know.

    It’s difficult to take a knee when you’re in a wheelchair or paralyzed in a bed.

    Take one more knee in the blood drenched sands of Fallujah in 120 degree heat. Wear your 60 pounds of Kevlar helmet and battle dress. Your number won’t be printed on it unless your number is
    up! You’ll need to stay hydrated but there won’t be a cute groupie to squirt Gatorade into your mouth. You’re on your own.

    Thank God you can thrust that clenched fist into the air and take a knee.

    There’s a lot of places to take a knee where Americans have given their lives, have permanently broken their bodies, and shattered their extended families all over the world. When you use the
    banner under which they fought as a source for your pathetic displeasure for their honor and sacrifice, and for living in the greatest nation, with the most freedoms of any country that has ever existed, you – you who have taken everything, been given everything,
    and given nothing back – spit on the memories of those who suffered, bled, and died for the very liberties you enjoy every minute of your day.

    That’s what the red stripes in that flag mean. It represents the blood of those who spilled a sea of their life-blood defending every freedom you enjoy every second of every day.

    Keep spitting on them by taking that knee.

    While you’re on your knee, pray for – or, if you reject a Higher Power, think about – those real American men and women who came before you, dying by the bullet and the bayonet. Not playing
    a game with a ball on a manicured lawn striped and printed with numbers to announce every inch of ground taken…but locked in unspeakable savagery on nameless hills and blood-soaked beaches and sweltering forests and 60-below-zero Korean mountains…every
    inch marked by an American life violently ripped from his or her family and from America while serving that flag; the flag and anthem you coddled multi-millionaires spit on in childish protest.

    But, take a knee – because being richer than 99.98% of all U.S. citizens, and being worshiped by groupies, isn’t quite enough for you – the malignant self-centered.

    The real Americans, to whom you owe everything, have no cheerleaders, no announcers, no coaches, no women to beat up, no drugs to use, no mansions to live in, no Ferraris to drive and no screaming
    fans. They were merely, and continue to be, men and women delivering the real bullet-to-bullet and bayonet-to-bayonet fight against those who chose to harm us, blazing a freedom-path so you would have the right, regardless of how ungrateful, childish, shallow
    and poorly conceived, to shine the spotlight on yourself and “take a knee.”

    In the huge majority of cases you are far too self-absorbed and badly educated to have even an inkling of what it took to get you where you are and to protect who and what you are, but your “protest”
    against our flag, our nation, and our people who died for us is duly noted.

    Not only is it an absolute disgrace to a nation of real heroes, your actions serve the purpose of pointing to your infantile ingratitude for those who chose to defend you under that banner that
    will still wave long after your jersey is retired and your rehabs are complete and your court cases for drug usage and possessions, batteries and sexual assaults are disremembered.

    If you really feel the need to take a knee, journey with real Americans to a place of thanksgiving and reverence on Saturday or Sunday or a Wednesday evening and kneel in prayer, or non-religious
    thought, before your own reflections or before Almighty God; your choice. Thank Him, or the-luck-of-the-draw, for preserving this country for as long as it has existed. Beg forgiveness for our ingratitude for all that has been for provided us. We’ll appeal
    to Him, or your-lucky-stars, for understanding and wisdom. We’ll pray for liberty and justice for all…because a Higher Power is the one who provides those things.

    But there will be no knee-taken in protest as our nation is being honored. There will only be gratitude for His provision and a plea for continued grace and mercy on the land of the free and
    the home of the brave.

    It goes like this…

    GOD BLESS AMERICA!

    NFL = No Fans Left

  • gotcha1

    There was a time when I thought these football players were smart. That day has since left and the obvious is, they don’t get it. People do not have to attend their games, buy their team gear, or buy the products that are advertising with them. If they were smart they would stand for the National Anthem, place their right hand over their heart and say a prayer that they are the luckiest people on the face of the earth to be able to play a sport in a country that appreciates them. These players have now bitten the hand that feeds them. Too bad, they never that smart!

  • Aardvark

    The really ironic thing about all of this is that the left hates football anyway. That’s why they were trying to stop it in high schools, using the excuse of all the head injuries. Truth is they just want to emasculate boys and men. Like Adam Corolla’s book, “In 50 years we will all be chicks”. So the leftist NFL players, coaches, team owners, networks, and now actors and musicians, are playing right into the left’s narrative by supporting the players “protest”, which is costing the NFL a lot of viewership, endorsements, network advertisers, and public support.

  • Peter J

    Of course the liberal networks refused to tell or show the truth… again and again and again… That’s the liberal way. Hide the truth from the stupid America public and no one will ever know.

    In the interest of equality and social justice, all these player’s salaries should be pooled and distributed equally among the team players. To, you know, make it “fair”.

  • Don Juan

    Why would this surprise me. If the shoe was on the other foot and most of the fans were cheering their so-called “Heroes” on instead of booing them, the sports cameramen would have been told to pan their cameras towards the stadium audiences and the sports reporters would have said things like, “See, even the fans are in agreement with the NFL players. They, too, disagree with what President Trump recently said and they are doing it by cheering their NFL heroes on. This proves just how many people in the United States disapproves of President Trump and his policies.” But too bad it didn’t work out that way. Instead of the cheering and adoration they were hoping for, the audiences were booing and heckling them. The sports media are totally against Donald Trump just like the MSM is, and will do anything they can to bring him down. But what they didn’t realize is there are tens of millions of fans on Donald Trump’s side and will stand by him. I predict the NFL players will soon be standing upright from this point on when the National Anthem is sung because if they don’t, then very few people will be watching their games live or tuning in on tv. We’ll see whose pride is stronger. Theirs or President Trump and the will of the patriotic American people.

  • Beachlover17

    Do the networks think we are stupid? We don’t need to hear it, we can see it in the faces and the reduction of the fans in stadium. The MEDIA IS THE BIGGEST PROBLEM like everything else they think they know what is best for the viewers, WE ARE NOT CHILDREN YOU DON’T HAVE TO SHELTER US, AND BY THE WAY, STOP THE NONSTOP TALKING DURING THE GAME, IF IT IS NOT RELATED TO THE CURRENT GAME OR A CURRENT GAME..SHUT UP SOME OF YOU RAMBLE LIKE BOBBLE HEADS WHILE WE ARE TRYING TO WATCH..WHICH LAST WEEK DIDN’T MAKE A DIFFERENCE SINCE DID NOT WATCH 1 GAME. WHAT IS THE MEDIA GOING TO DO IF THERE IS NO FOOTBALL LEFT TO COMMENTATE ON?? YOUR JOBS ON THE LINE ALSO. THINK ABOUT IT.

    If you protest these traitors while your’re sitting in the stadium watching the game, you’re a joke, a liar and no better than they are. If you protest while watching a game you purchased on Pay-per-view, same thing. Don’t complain about the dirt they do when you’re paying them to do it.

    I guess the networks figure that they don’t have to show the fans booing because they can be heard booing. At least that’s what I’d say by giving them the benefit of the doubt. If they’re not showing the fans for any other reason then the networks are part of the problem. Remember, if you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for anything.

  • TexasCoyote1

    Put your ear a little closer to the ground. The decision by Corker to not seek reelection will be the first of many who see the political landscape changing. As Bannon seeks out and finds candidates like Judge Moore to run against the left-leaning incumbents at the primary level, there is going to be a different attitude in Congress come January, 2019.

    I am certainly sensing a greater confidence on the part of us who are fed up with illegals thinking they have rights and blacks thinking they should get respect they don’t deserve. President Trump obviously feels the same way and this gives credence to the movement.

    Nobody knows what the future holds, but I am quite hopeful the ideology of Marx and Lenin is on the ropes and will be hunted down and exterminated in the United States.
