    NFL considers 15-yard penalty for anthem kneeling
    ATLANTA — On Tuesday, NFL owners put three hours aside for a privileged session to speak—amongst themselves and family members—about the most sensitive of topics.



    Good I hope they do do it, Football has become one of the American all time pass times, it's just one of those Americana things, Patriot etc.

    National anthems don't have a fucking thing to do with any sports even outside the Olympics. This kind of knuckcledragger shit just makes us all look pathetic.

    You want to know why this has become an issue? Because people are trying to make it an issue. Players were kneeling for months before anyone raised hell about it. It is a personal choice for the players. It is constitutionally protected free speech and protest.

    But the 15 yard penalty thing didn't happen. The new NFL rule allows players to stay in the locker room if they choose. But if they come out on the field, they are required to stand. So players can opt to skip the anthem. It offers the same protest without the nonsense from the fans.

    If I owned an NFL team I'd position a sniper on the stadium roof and the first sumbitch who took a knee during the Anthem would get his head blown off......fucking dirtbags making million$ playing a kid's game and they have no respect for the country that makes that possible? The 1st Amendment applies to saying what you please about the government...doesn't work that way in business...the Rats saw to that with their PC crap....so it works both ways. You put on that uniform and walk into that stadium, check your politics at your locker.

    I like that. They can simply opt out. Fans may notice but it will not be overt...unless of course the entire team opts out...lol!!

    I think that is what upsets so many people. It's from where this sprouted. The radical left works very hard to correct and punish anyone who strays from their ideal of 'correct society'. It's all born from Cultural Marxism.

    It's always the trumpanzees here who live their violence vicariously on the internet while hiding in their basement.
