    A long, long, time ago the NFL went on strike and the season didn't start until way late. The fans were absolutely FURIOUS. (That was pre-internet) After a time, they got over it though. Same here, so long as the media doesn't keep stirring the pot.

    If Trump would quit tweeting about the NFL, the furor would go down a lot quicker. He keeps stirring up his base with distractions like this, and his followers eat it up hook line and sinker.

    Wonder how many people today know that N. Korea has taken what some of Trumps tweets were about them and are calling it a declaration of war?

    How is it ironic? No one is suggesting the teams don't have a right to protest or send out whatever message they want. All President Trump did was state the obvious fact that choosing to send out an anti-American message will have massive backlash.

    Take the power away from the activist players.
    Keep the entire team in the locker room until the anthem is over.

    Such a simple solution.

    Meaning you just parroted it without seeing for yourself.

    I'm still waiting for SIL to show me where I "plagiarized a link" about the Klan. Weeks ago.

    That is in fact what they did until a few years ago -- when the Pentagon came pimping with our tax dollars.

    They should be free to do whatever they want, so long as they aren't infringing on the rights of others. If the viewers have a problem with it, they'll boycott the product, and the station or whatever will feel it in their pockets, at which point it's up to them to decide how to handle the situation.
