    Really most of them are lip synching so they don't get picked on.

    Unfortunately, similar to the link between the Paris Accord and addressing climate change, I don't see how taking a knee for the anthem alters the behaviour of bad police/policing, and/or unfortunate encounters where the police aggression was warranted.

    Now if all these players donated 10-20% of their salaries, or took a Wednesday off to go speak at groups working to address concerns in the community etc, I could see the benefit. To Colin K's credit, he donated some of his salary if I recall correctly, which by and large is more effective than a symbolic, somewhat (or very) offensive action at the workplace, which targets an entire nation.

    A true patriot will insist all other Americans sign a loyalty oath before they are permitted to enter the stands.

    That wasn't my question.

    My question was which of my two scenarios would you prefer to see stop.

    They walked out AFTER they bought tickets? Yeah, that is going to kill the NFL.

    But then, Trump did kill the USFL back in the 1980s. Sued the NFL too. Sued for $1.2 billion. Was awarded $3.76. That is three dollars and seventy-six cents.

    No one said it? GB is not normal NFL. I believe it it publicly owned/traded. Fans are caught by "investment" IMVHO.

    Brought to you by Google talk typing, also hand typed tablet posted. some of each....

    Did you hear on the news that it is Russian tweeters and bots pushing all the stories on this NFL thing to put division between us? That's what came out in the congressional hearing today...

    are we all fools?

    Criminals getting shot resisting Police capture is not a good cause for Protest......they can Protest but fans don't have to support the NFL mensa group. I lost interest....late 90s due to "no action". Action is improving But now This protesting Will keep me out Again Google talk typing at the end hand typing the first part

    I said "stfu and quit judging"...holding him to his own standard. If you can't see the calling out of hypocrisy in my statement...sorry...I don't have time to draw you picture.
