    Not to split hairs, but it had already begun.

    Consumers - FANS - influenced this company to pull those ads and support for the NFL. Had fans not begun protesting by the millions, burning their season tickets, burning their memorabilia, demanding refunds from Satellite TV for 'NFL ticket' they probably would have kept on with 'business as usual'. Seeing the fans begin to hit the NFL's 'bottom line' they wanted no part of that and stepped up, taking the side of consumers / fans.

    Still, good for them. Thanks for the news!

    Validate what belief, exactly? Patriotism? Respect for this country / the national anthem?

    A new poll shows 58% of Americans oppose the NFL's protest. Insulting America's beliefs are what partially helped Democrats lose over 1,000 elections, to include the Presidency recently. Please - keep it up. It has worked so well for you / Democrats.

    ;p

    It is a tough decision to make....

    Should I buy a Hardwick suit or watch an NFL game?

    What time is kickoff?

    Haha true. A sign of insanity is they keep trying the same thing over and over.

    I do as well, I’m not sure why players being paid millions of dollars a year to entertain think they are oppressed.

    There lesson to others should be, if you work hard, practice and apply yourself everyday, set goals, you can make good in this country. At least their example of getting there has showed that.
