They are trying to keep awareness of abuses to others less fortunate.
Once again, they can do that nonsense on their own dime.

Suffice to say, NFL is on my do not watch list.
You should be glad they're protesting then.

I think pretty much every poster called you out on your asanine statement.

All of a sudden I donít like stupidity being aired on TV. I watch a game, not a protest. If I was s owner, the player would be fired. My money, my rules.

That's less to do with the money players make than the simple fact that the NFL is a union shop, and rules regarding player etiquette during the anthem are not in the Collective Bargaining Agreement. The NBA, on the other hand, has an anthem rule in its CBA, which has been enforced with player suspensions (Mahmoud Abdul-Rauf, for example).

Sure. And if you owned a business and an employee kneeled every time he saw a flag during working hours, you could fire him. No one is disputing that point.

The NFL owners apparently see things differently than you do, otherwise they would have collectively bargained differently.

You're not watching a protest. You're watching a game. I'm sure you'll survive those 30 seconds. The next victim may not.

Stop being a traitor, treasonous unAmerican citizen.

Wait until this stupidity hits the owners in the pocket book.

Kneeling during the anthem is traitorous and treasonous. Why do you support traitors and treason?

You might be waiting a long time, given that their revenue was up last year despite the protests.
