[quote=The Dissenter;49617949]England left the UN not the US, google Brexit.

5 people have been killed by police in Britain in 2017 (4 of them being confirmed terrorists.)

https://www.thesun.co.uk/news/410392...tings-uk-2017/

883 people have been killed by police in the US in 2017

Killed By Police - 2017

I know which one I'd have more respect for.[/QUOTE

Sorry but your analogy is misplaced.

65 million in the U.K.; 325 million in the U.S. and full of guns.

I police officer killed in 2017 and prior to that, 0 in 2016. Hardly any killed in line of duty at all in U.K.

In the U.S. almost 150 in 2014 and about 127 in 2015.

Players beef is against police indiscriminately killing Black Americans, not British history from 300 yrs ago.

So, it's only Black Americans killed by cops?

And what are these sudden ''activists'' doing about the 6% of the U.S. population (black males) committing over 50% of the violence crime?

Of course no one should expect these players to know much, let alone British history.

300 years ago? Are you kidding? You actually believe the British role in world oppression is 300 years ago? Then let's leave all the Confederate Monuments standing then, that's history as well. Why should anyone care about 150 years ago or even 25 years ago?

Britain created American racism and these nitwits desecrate their own country on foreign soil, saluting the Queen of England no less.

It WAS about police killing Blacks until Trump butted in and labeled players as SOBs.

They are useful idiots at best and more likely ignorant morons.

More white people are killed by police than black people.

The media and progressives have an anti American agenda to push and to hell with reality.


The NFL is going to get a major beat down in ratings for the crap they just pulled

They are SOBs. Trump has every right to speak his mind just like these over paid cry babies do with their kneeling. The NFL is no place for politics and this has been going on long before he became president. This should've been stopped right from the beginning,people go to games to get away from this crap. Maybe the NFL won't totally collapse but it's dying a slow death and Goodell better grow a set before it gets much worse. The ratings are speaking for themselves and I suspect after this weekend they'll be much lower. Maybe he should take a hint from NASCAR!

The NFL is ultimately controlled by the same people who are militarizing cops to assault blacks into virtual slavery. Trump has to save the country before he can save the black community, so to do this he widened another front right in the soft spot of culture. The NFL is everything to its fans and they watched it get corrupted with pink outfits and social justice and irrelevant gay revelations and other ridiculous feminizing crap right before their eyes.

Read the news: the boycott of the NFL already began. What Trump did was give it a push like a political investor who will reap bonanza. The man cannot fail. Even when he loses, he wins. God's favor is upon him.

Make no mistake about it, when the NFL goes they all go, because the whole country will right away wake up to what the Democrats are doing. Inner city kids will suddenly seek real heroes again and suburbia will suddenly have the time to provide them. No more of this militaristic ceremony and fake battle while real hell is going on in the world.

Name has been officially changed. No longer called the NFL. Now officially renamed the kNeel FL. The kNeel FL will probably not collapse anytime soon. Maybe in a decade or so though, who knows. Maybe they will develop some super high tech impact absorbing helmets, eliminating brain injury risk.

YouTube is filling up with former fans burning their team products. You want to protest police shootings then go to those cities where the shootings took place and protest the police. This form of protest isnít against the police, itís against the USA as a whole. Theyíre doing this at a time of lower tv ratings and lower game attendance. Great job, take an action that will offend more than half your fans. Letís see the NFL continue with less than half the viewers, ticket sales, and merchandise sales.

Watching the SNF game, Raiders-Redskins. Packed stadium. Evidently they didn't get the Trump memo to boycott the sport.
