Excellent!

I haven't heard if JJ Watt has told him teammates that, but he's a HUGE supporter of the military. I was so disgusted Sunday with all the garbage about taking a knee. I cut off the pre-game stuff, but did notice that of the Texans shown, not a single one was on their knee.

The one that started this crap is out of a job now! He was with the 49ers at the time. It's OK to protest what you think is wrong but it just doesn't sit well with fans and coaches. I haven't seen any of the Raiders do this. This seems to have all come about from Kaepernick, who is half white and was raised by white parents. The fact that no other team wants his talents at Football has to tell you something!

Protesting is a protected right of individuals in America. The thing to remember is that protection just means you are not going to be arrested by the government and sent to the gulag. These NFL players need to realize they are just entertainers. If they negatively affect the business that hired them, they will be replaced. It's that simple, and most people don't think all that highly of 22 year old millionaires grand standing on prime time.

Cleary you have the right not to acknowledge the USA flag(that our soldiers fought, became maimed or died for, for you all to burn our country's American Flag)....but the more intriguing question for Liberals who hate our country so much(where you feel the need to burn our American Flag in protest), is this..... why not just FREELY leave the USA to emigrate to those countries that you all want to "fundamentally TRANSFORM" the USA into??? I mean really it's that simple...if you don't like the rule of laws living in the USA you are free to leave our great country to go live elsewhere in the world that you feel fits how you want to live your life.

I was referring to Kaepernick being a liberal, who btw is NOT married, so who are you referring to as their WIFE being a liberal but he is not, and one who could care less about politics??????
Look pal, both of my Irish grandparents as teenagers came to our country LEGALLY alone at different times(not knowing each other while growing up in Ireland) to have a better life in the USA than they were living in Ireland(my nana was forced to quit school at 10 yrs old being 1 of 13 children) to go live and work on a wealthy Irish family's farm as a source of income for her family of 15 in Ireland...so at 17 she left her family of 15 to come to America LEGALLY all ON HER OWN on a ship in 1924 for her to have a better life than the one she was living in Ireland where she was being OPPRESSED since she was 10...where after her being processed on Ellis Island at 17 yrs old to LEGALLY enter our country, she as a young teenage girl being truly OPPRESSED as a young Irish girl who came to America for a better life, was shocked to see signs at places of employment she went to, to get a job to SUPPORT HERSELF that said "IRISH NEED NOT APPLY"....which did NOT deter her from getting ahead or achieving her American Dream in our great country back when LEGAL Irish immigrants were being discriminated against for being IRISH.
Eh yet in 2017, you liberals want our youth and politically ignorant adults to believe that women, minorities, people of different races and religions etc. are being "oppressed" in the USA, only in the "progressives" attempt to further their "progressive" liberal agenda to FUNDAMENTALLY TRANSFORM the USA into their vision of AmeriKa...where us peasants are all equally poor, while our liberal court jesters(celebrities), msm media, and liberal/rino politicians live like Kings and Queens.

IN THE REAL WORLD no successful private company would EVER hire someone to be their company's CEO to be the President of their successful company having a resume like Obama's of being a "community organizer", an IL state senator and then only an 18 month US Senator who THOUGHT he was qualified to be our country's CIC...yet you wicked smaaaaat liberals voted for him to be our country's CIC of our economy, with him having NO EXPERIENCE AT ALL of ever WORKING in the private sector, ever running a business/having to make payroll...yet you all voted for him to be our country's CIC to run our country's economy, smh.

Even back in 2010 when Obama was President these Anarchists were out violently "Occupying" major cities with these nuts literally shitting in the streets because they were supposedly "oppressed" in the USA.
Wake UP, if in 2017 you still think there's "oppression" going on in the USA, you need a reality check along with a ONE WAY ticket for you all to go live in Iran, North Korea, Syria etc. to finally GET KNOW what being OPPRESSED really means.

".and you all on the left don't give a shit, as long as they vote Democrat, smh."

One could say the same thing about the Right, as well. You could care a less what Trump says about women, minorities, and just about everyone else, as long as he has an 'R' , next to his name. You voted in a man, who has stuck it to the "little guy" in business dealings that have gone south, denied housing to blacks, wanted the death penalty for the "Central Park Five", a twice divorce loser, habitual liar, who most likely colluded with Russia.

What don't you get....Trump as a billionaire private citizen back in 2005 while having a PRIVATE CONVERSATION with Billy Bush was clearly telling him how EASY some women are in the entertainment business.. where anyone in power can just grab them by the "pussy" and they're OK with it.
NOT saying that he grabbed women by the pussy!!!! Trump back then in the know about HOLLYWEIRD was clearly referring to the ogre looking men in power in Hollyweird like Weinstein as well as the goodlooking "A list" celebrities in Hollyweird.

My post was directed at dru18's post of Sept. 11 (as can be seen by reading the "in response to ..." reference at the top of my post). I was waiting for a reply from dru18 that I could engage with, but not such a hysterical reply from you!

I am ecstatic that Kaepernick is unemployed now because of his disrespectful actions and I hope that he remains unemployed from the NFL forever. I also maintain that Obama was the worst president of my entire lifetime (and Harry Truman was the president when I was born) because he was responsible for the suffering of more hundreds of millions of Americans than any other president because of how he perpetuated the worst economy since the Great Depression with his dismal domestic policies. Not to mention the additional suffering to more millions of Americans whose health care insurance (that they liked) he abolished and replaced with the more expensive and tyrannical Obamacare disaster!

The spelling/grammar police on the internet pointing out spelling/grammar errors only make my eyes rolls EVEN if they agree with my opinions and are pointing out the spelling/grammar errors of a politically ignorant/ill informed person on the far left...only because it's petty to do so because we ALL at times make spelling/grammar errors while typing out our thoughts/opinions on a keyboard, and not everyone took 4 years of Typing class while in HS as I did back in the late 70's lol! What's ironic is that now in the age of technology where kids have to use keyboards to do their school work, Typing classes are no longer offered in schools, at least they're not in my city's schools. My teenagers,12 year old and their friends all type with just their thumbs and their index fingers...whereas I type using all 10 digits, thus making minimal errors and blowing my kid's minds as how fast I can type lol!!

Thanks for the memories about HS typing class. I actually only took one typing class in HS (1964), but it was enough to teach me everything I needed to know about operating a keyboard and page layout techniques for business letters and term papers and long reports.

That really came in handy during my job career in the '80s when computers were introduced into our company. The page layout functions for formatting on the computer were the same as what I learned twenty years earlier so the transition to the computers was easier for me than for most of my younger co-workers.

But, like you said about today's teenagers, I am absolutely flabbergasted at how fast they type with their thumbs on their smart phones! So I guess they try to carry that habit over into their computer keyboards.

While in HS I took 4 years of typing class as well as 4 years of shorthand classes...where having those 2 skills back in the early 80's as a single mom is why I was hired at a Fortune 500 Corporation in my town looking for CRT operators to input data on their computers..and because I had accurate lighting speed as a typist, as well as able to write in shorthand and then accurately type out what my boss said and most importantly having a hard work ethic... my boss encouraged me to take advantage of our company's benefits of paying for college classes, which I took advantage of as a young single mom back then INSTEAD of relying on the government(other peoples tax dollars) to take care of my son and I.

It is true that the government can't punish him for not standing, but if he is at his work and being paid he is subject to whatever the company (NFL) says on the subject. The company (NFL) is also subject to sponsors, and consumers of their product, which is entertainment.

What was fought for was protection from our own government. That's the point so many people seem to miss. :)

Very true, but this smacks of what was done to Ali back in the sixties.

And if the government is not involved here, than Trump needs to keep his big mouth shut. IF, he can.

Here we go again. Leftists and blacks can do what ever, white conservatives are supposed to shut the phuck up.

You really don't see your racism, do you?

No, I can't, but yours sure shines out like a beacon.

The players are on their knees, not to disrespect the flag or anthem, but to protest the shooting of black men, (especially unarmed) by the police who have the mentality of shooting first, AND then getting around to asking a few questions.

The players on their knees - what ever their color are disrespecting America. I don't give a shit what their intent is - they are disrespecting America.

Make your protest in another way at another time. By the way - burning down cities, rioting, looting are more examples of unacceptable behavior.

Yes, because the last examples you gave, are ones of VIOLENCE. Going down on one knee is not.

That flag has flown over a lot of ugly as well, and everyone has the right to decide if they want to honor it, or not.

You think because Trump has spoken, it will go away?

Hate to tell you, but this form of protesting was going on, even under Obama. But of course, we didn't hear him **** about it.

Of course Obama didn't **** about it. He encouraged it! Obama encouraged all kinds of divisions in the country.

No, the protests won't go away. The protesters and their supporters are not very bright. The NFL will suffer greatly however. So will race relations in general.

The protests have been going on for quite awhile, and will continue as long as young black men are being senselessly murdered by the police.

It has nothing to do with the flag or anthem.

It is a peaceful protest, that hurts no one. If you don't like it, then don't look.

The NFL will suffer? LMAO!!

Your little protest is killing the NFL Dru. Many have taken your advice and are not looking.

Sponsors don't like that Dru.

Sponsors, or the owners, could care a less. If they had minded, something would have been done along time ago.

Trump tried Three times to buy a team, and was basically told to hit the road. He is throwing this shit out there, to appease his base, nothing more.

His approval ratings are down to 32%, with a growing number of Republicans jumping ship. I don't think the NFL's approval ratings are anywhere near Trump's embarrassing low number.

What Cassius Clay did, and I remember this well was he became a Muslim in order to avoid being drafted to go and serve in Viet Nam.

Of course now that we have the lens of history to look through. Viet Nam became a war managed by dip-shit politicians instead of the military.
So It was a smart move on Clays part.

We have 50,000+ dead soldiers as testimony to the lunacy of the way that war was fought.

Nope not at all for the players who play for the Patriots....actually if any of you watched the opening ceremonies earlier tonight of the Pat's game on NBC, you would all have seen EVERY player and MEMBER of the Pat's organization standing proudly during our National Anthem as well as seen a HUGE American Flag on our Patriot's field...and would have heard the SOLD OUT game of fans all loudly singing along in unison with the singer of our National Anthem at tonight's game.....eh but of course there was that ONE lone 'oppressed' NFL player(making A LOT of money for JUST PLAYING FOOTBALL) on the KC Chiefs (#22) who refused to stand for our country's National Anthem... for him as an OVERPAID athlete to make his 'statement' ala Colin Kaepernick about how 'oppressed' minorities are in our country.....blah, blah, blah.
Which makes it even more heartbreaking that the Pat's are going to lose to this team who has a player on their team who won't STAND while our country's National Anthem is being sung, that has AFFORDED him so many opportunities in our GREAT COUNTRY.

At least our team went back to playing their home games in the city that they use in their team name instead of in the northern suburb of Pontiac (where they played their home games for 27 years, but still called themselves the "Detroit" Lions).
