    It appears the NBA is smarter than the NFL. They can at least learn by watching the mistakes dumbasses make. Do you suppose the leftwing trolls will blubber about how the NBA is violating the First Amendment rights of the players?


    “It’s been a rule as long as I’ve been involved with the league,” said Adam Silver, the NBA’s commissioner, about standing for the playing of the national anthem, The Associated Press reported. “And my expectation is that our players will continue to stand for the anthem.”

    Yes, if you believe in the US Constitution, you're a douchebag.

    I have no doubt you actually believe that statement.

    Thank you for showing your true colors.

    The Constitution prevents an owner from telling his players how to behave on the court or on the field?

    Leftwing loons don't understand that the Constitutional rights are limits on the federal government. No one is suggesting these anthem protesters be punished by the government. They are just upset that people are rejecting their protest. They don't have an issue with going after people for their political beliefs, unless they are progressives of course. Remember when the Confederate statue protest happened? The left found the identity of some of the protesters and got them fired from their jobs, and leftist A-holes here cheered. Now suddenly putting the financial squeeze on NFL millionaires is "unconstitutional".

    Actually those you're insulting, while you demand respect, probably do understand this.

    However if you believe in Human Rights, you would probably believe that Human Rights are applicable to everyone. That everyone benefits from them and that everyone respects them.

    To turn around and say you're patriotic and then turn against the principles of free speech would be rather bizarre. That's not to say that everyone has the right to say whatever they like, whenever they like, however it's about respecting people's right to say what they want to say.

    I respect the NFL player's right to protest, and I respect the right of white Middle Class fans to throw their tickets away in disgust. What I would like to see is less of this trying to force everyone into some sort of patriotic nonsense so that we all do what the right wants.

    The right would have seen the Civil Rights movement destroyed and claiming those protesting were "un-American", history repeats itself.

    The Confederates were committing treason, and yet "patriots" go around flying the flag of TREASON and make justifications for why it's not treason. At the same time they demand respect for their views, while at no time giving respect back.

    And with your statement you know what I was saying and how I was saying it. But you're not interested in debate, you're interested in scoring points.

    The NBA need to impose the new rule of not "stuffing" the ball. Just like goal tending is illegal. That will remove the thug element from the game.
