    I think it is a decent compromise. It does not disrespect the flag but it points to the concerns the players have about the situation in the black community, which is a different topic.

    What do you think?

    Standing is the issue. So picking arms is a mom issue. Disagree? Deport me.

    They aren't concerned about the black community.....they are dumb people reacting to left wing lies without thinking. The real problem in the Black community isn't cops.....it is democrat policies, out of wedlock birth rates, and young black males murdering other young black males.......do you think those are the problems they are linking arms to address?

    What if I have no problem AND I like cheese? I can't have both??

    I dunno who came up with the locking arms thing but I like it. Shows unity against the Divider in Chief. Prolly would keep him up at night if he ever went to frickin' sleep.

    I don't watch TV, but here's my problem with their "issue"... I don't give a shit. I know about their grievance. I am aware. I just don't give a shit. If I did, Id attend one of their rallies. This shit their pulling at these games is in response to people like me who don't give a shit about their problems. So they are trying to take advantage of the captive audience to try and get them to give a shit. And it looks like it's having the opposite effect.

    Actually taking advantage of a captive audience is exactly what the Pentagon pimps were trying to do trotting the players out there like so many marionettes to serve as props for a jingomusic jam that has nothing to do with the game.

    They got busted for it too. And the NFL sent three-quarters of a million bucks of that pimped taxpayer money back.
