The players are purposely disrespecting their own customers, and their league due to their inflated EGOS. The league has SUFFERED because of it by reduced revenue as their former customers tune out. Sponsors, and advertisers have noticed, and are also reducing their expenditures with the NFL. Yes, they still make money, but not as much, and YES the NFL is concerned about it, but is so scared of the players they continue to shoot themselves in the foot. Morons.

This is all about player GREED, and money. Kaepernick is also a FRAUD. He said publicly that he would STOP kneeling, and protesting if he got a NFL contract. He was offered a contract by the Ravens then he, and his radical, activist girlfriend tweeted, calling the Ravens owner a slave owner, and racist. They pulled the contract offer solely due to that. FRAUD, and hypocrite Kaepernick then got a big dollar contract form Virtue Signaler Nike. All frauds.

I could ask you why you seem to find it offensive as to feel it could be disposed of.

Btw, these athletes probably love the fact that the anthem is played, how else would they protest their perceived injustices?

Your concern about greed almost sounds noble... until you peel back the layers:

And you are consumed with ENVY. Another Liberal/Progressive talking in extremes. Yeah we want our kids to go to crappy schools, and want to drive on crappy roads. Right. Next you will say we want dirty air, and dirty water. You are a hypocrite like all Liberal/Progressives who want to be provided for by those that are successful. Now that is real greed!

It sounds like your problem isn't just "GREED." You're perfectly fine with greed when it's about corporations maximizing profits, or conservatives wanting to pay less taxes so they can keep all the fruits of their financial success.

But God forbid we let black people market themselves and maximize profits. My heart bleeds for all the redneck NFL fans who just want their black show-ponies to listen to their owners and stay in their lanes.

get OVER it folks, nothing is going to change. Folks who are losing sleep, cancelling their season tickets or giving up watching the games only hurt themselves. This is the United Statee. Folks have a right to protest.
