If it's not broke, don't fix it...
I don't know, I feel like what a player does in his or her personal life, as long as it doesn't interfere with the game (like drugs for instance), should be none of the NFL's business. To me, if a team wants to keep a player who beats his wife, that reflects badly on that individual team, not the NFL. Therefore, the teams should be responsible for taking whatever actions they deem necessary in those instances. On one hand that might sound bad, but to me it makes sense. I just get tired because the NFL does end up playing mommy each year with players having personal issues.Did anyone else find it kinda funny that (among others) the NFL is soooooo concerned about a player protesting/kneeling, such that, they make up an entire penalty for it, meanwhile nobody bats an eye at the player convicted of DUI, convicted of domestic abuse, or you know, actual offenses that should be punished.
A veteran literally encouraged him to kneel.Standing for the anthem is a sign of patriotism and respect for our military and our country. Likewise, intentionally not standing is blatantly disrespectful. Every American knows that. Colin Kaepernick knew it from the outset, he knew he would get all kinds of attention, and that's why he did what he did. And then saying "I don't mean to be disrespectful," while continuing to do it as you are fully aware it's offending people, is ridiculous. There's no way around it. That whole movement was disrespectful, like it or not.
So this veteran is dumb just because you don’t agree with him?A veteran! That's just it! One dumb one does not necessarily speak for all of them!
Did I say that? No! He’s not dumb because I disagree with him; he’s dumb because he chooses to be. Look, I respect anyone who’s served and am thankful for that guy’s service, but if he tried to kneel while he was in the service, I don’t think he would have been in there too long. Also, if this guy believes that it’s OK to kneel, then I’m sorry, but he’s not a “patriotic” veteran.So this veteran is dumb just because you don’t agree with him?
Yeah, screw that dumb patriotic veteran, he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. It’s not like he served the country or anything.
. I respectfully disagree with your last point. There are limited first amendment rights in the workplace. Your employer can limit your speech and even what you can say on social media and show you the door so fast it would make your head spin. As I see the problem it is the MSM stirring things up. Another example is no where in the Constitution does it say anything about the separation of church and state. It only says that Government can not force you to join a particular religion. But somehow it got morphed into the disaster we have today. Enough political junk from me. Biggest race weekend of the year...Let’s do it!Here's my whole take. And I know people won't like my opinion but oh well. Ain't here to please anyone. I do see the prayer eventually cut from invocation in the next 10 years. And I think it should. It's known fact people are becoming less religious. You don't really need it. The crews/drivers/families/whoever can always do that in private before the race. Given I'm an atheist I really could care less about it but I do respect other peoples believes. If it's still around by then, ok. Makes no difference on the racing (which is all I give a shit about).
Now I do believe the national anthem should stay. Granted I am the least patriotic person you will fucking meet. And I'm the 1st person to point the flaws in this country. Especially with the retarded monkey's running the fucking government. Don't even get me started on Captain Bone Spurs. BUT I only point out the flaws cause want this place better for everyone. ANYWAYS. I feel like every country should do the national anthem before it starts. It's a showing of national pride.
Now the whole fucking kneeling thing.

You have the right to do it I don't give a fuck who says it is. IT'S NOT DISRESPECTFUL AT ALL. It falls under freedom of speech. There's at least reason why they do it cause there a clear problem of police brutality in this country. And it's there way of showing that they're sick of seeing it. It would be a whole story if they just sat there with there hat on and completely ignoring. I want to live in a country where you have the choice to do so and want to stand for the flag. Not to be forced to. You know. Like in those countries that I'm told to hate by the orange orangutan. I'm sorry for sounding blunt but that's how I've been feeling for these past years. I feel the "libtard" comments coming but I think I know you guys well enough to at least see where I'm coming from.
Nate Boyer has the right to define that for himself. He served.Did I say that? No! He’s not dumb because I disagree with him; he’s dumb because he chooses to be. Look, I respect anyone who’s served and am thankful for that guy’s service, but if he tried to kneel while he was in the service, I don’t think he would have been in there too long. Also, if this guy believes that it’s OK to kneel, then I’m sorry, but he’s not a “patriotic” veteran.
Because he apparently believes that kneeling during the national anthem is a good idea. I'm not using circular reasoning, saying that he's dumb and wrong because I disagree with him. We live in a free country and he, as well as you or anyone else, have the right to disagree with me or believe whatever you want. But I want to make a statement, just because you have the right to do something, doesn't mean it's right to do it. And as my pastor says, "You can disagree with me. It doesn't matter; I know I'm right."Remind me again how he’s dumb?
Er, my earlier post. That "dyed piece of cloth" represents a lot to people, especially when they die/get wounded defending the principles that is based on.All this arguing over a silly song paired with a dyed piece of cloth that really has no meaning when you think about.
