Most of them don't even know what their activist message is.

Not to mention, once this passes they are going to regret burning their $100 jerseys
yep. a while back I interviewed with this company that kind of pissed me off, and they happened to give me some clothes with their logo on it. I later gave the clothes away instead of burning them. didn't bother getting a receipt for tax season either.

You are presumably ignorant of the meaning of the protests but why would you assume that the people actually participating in them don't know why?

Every single one of them knows what they are protesting. It's the ones bellyaching about 'TEH FLAG' that are ignorant to the message and meaning - not to mention real disrespect to the flag. Yanno, like holding the flag flat across a field, using the flag on athletic uniforms, wearing the flag as apparel, using the flag as/in advertisement (hello Budweiser) and other actual disrespects. Guess we'll let those go though.

it's good that Rogers is calling on all the fans in the stadium (many of them owners) to lock arms as a show of solidarity with the players this Thursday, would expect many of their fans at home and in taverns across Wisconsin will all do the same

I'll take a knee in front of the big screen for their rights, for social injustice, and to pray we elect someone to the WH that knows what she/he is doing.

lol you'll take a knee for social injustice. You could always go out and try to make s difference if you're so concerned instead of watching multi millionaires play a children's game.

Did you care this much before kaepermick? Or did he show you the way?
Serious question.
