    Looking at NFL games yesterday, it appears the anthem kneeling protest is beginning to fizzle. Maybe the players are beginning to understand that it could cost the NFL and themselves in the long run!

    Too late.

    The damage to NFL attendance and viewership is done.

    The damage to commercial sponsorship, on the other hand, has only just begun.

    We should do a counter-protest, drop trau and moon everybody during the anthem.

    The anthem will become an ass-showing spectical...like it is now.

    My sense is that the majority of NFL fans don't want protest activism during the National Anthem. Players can do what they want but ultimately, fans determine the paycheck.

    You'll have to tell me since football is no longer a program on my television set.

    Anyone kneeling tonight, should be suspended. This is not the time for these bastard millionaire thugs to be playing politics. Not tonight.
