Only brain dead NFL players do not understand the issue and never will. they are a disrespectful bunch and we really don't need the nfl. college football will do just fine.
Fire them if they cause an uproar and let the ones that didnt get picked this year to play in the NFL have a chance to make that big money. Theres plenty just out of college that played football that would love a chance to play in the NFL.
The same thing is repeated day in and Day out for weeks. The only thing that changes is they are so ignorant and self absorbed they keep digging a deeper hole. Keep it up NFL players. We don't want you or need you. You have shown your true identity and we are not impressed. To the football team owners, your afraid of your employees, what does that say of you? All of you are pathetic.
I think Goodell is only concerned with his own job. He basically told Trump to mind his own busisness and stop being devisive. He changed his tune when the fans started tuning out because they agreed with Trump's statement.
You have that right on your own time. You are being paid to play for the NFL. If I'm working somewhere, I don't have the right to not participate in certain activities because of freedom of speech, they are paying me to be there...representing them. On my own time, yes. Otherwise, no. Same should be for the NFL players. Period!
Here’s the thing......these morons actually think their freedom of speech is being violated. Clearly not all but these dudes were giving sham classes at college. We need to put ELPS or civics back in public schools.
When I was working my boss wrote the rules. If I didn't like it I was free to resign. The NFL players are just paid (overpaid might add) employees. If they don't like the rules there is nothing that says they can't quit. That being said, the president does not own the NFL therefore, should not have any say in the rules.
Goodell didn't have a change of heart, he had a change of wallet!!!, he needed a smaller one because of all the revenue the NFL is losing, he knows it's just a matter of time before owners get pissed off and get rid of him, they want him to make the call on stopping the protest so they don't get blood on their hands......TM
Just another big mouth ignoramous trying to be a hero in his own eyes ! Keep up this crap and someone will put you on the clothesline to dry out !
The headaches will begin more. They let these players protest on the field for all this time now they are gonna try and pull the plug. This should have been done the first time Kaplonek started this all. He should have been told. This is the workplace you work for us and the people and we can not let you protest your views on the filed like this. This was all in the rules for the NFL but you just let him do it saying he has the right for free speech and to peacefully protest. You should have stopped it than when it was only him. Instead it started a chain reaction. Not for whatever he was kneeling for because truthfully I really can't remember what he started it for. So whatever he was kneeling for nobody even cared about because he made it completely for another cause!! Respect for our country and soldiers and for what the flag means, and the police the respect they deserve. That's all I got out of him kneeling at that particular time in the game he had no respect for what our flag means to the people of this country and what it stands for. Than everyone else started but not for the reason Kaplonek was kneeling for it started for just unity!! That's it! No matter what they say. Now the league will have a big battle on their hands because if they would have did what they were suppose to do with the first player that did this. You would have nobody following suit. Now you turned players against players because if the players don't agree you have no unity on the teams. It's players against players now. Don't make for a very good team. Hopefully these players will realize it will no longer be tolerated if they want to continue they will be dealt with or maybe fired. You have the right it is in your rules. I'm sure you could get a lot more talented players out there to replace them.
