    Leave it up to the teams.

    I've already decided not to buy their "product". I am voting with my wallet.

    My wife is glad to have her Sundays back!!

    If they are fine with it, then that is telling all the fans that is how they feel. It certainly is their right to do so. The fans will return the favor by boycotting them if they feel insulted by the message being sent by team owners and the NFL.

    It is not only the politics and religion that get dragged into sports but the fact that these jokers want to bite the hand that feeds them....if white folk boycott the games who is going to pay them? The nfl will not be able to....they would have to go on welfare.

    Yeah, could be. I have no doubt the owners aren't thrilled with this, since it puts them between a rock and hard place.

    You know, the fans can say they are going to boycott the NFL all they want, but the fans aren't the real source of money for the NFL and players.

    It's in the marketing of all the beer and man products during the commercials that is the real cash cow.

    If you want to get the NFL to bow to pressure, you're gonna have to get the advertisers onboard as well.

    But.................I don't think beer sales are going to decrease just because of some NFL players protesting.
