All those kneeling during the Anthem (white, black, hispanic, asian) are worthless pieces of c**p. They're dead to me.......as is the NFL.

College Football is as fun (& sometimes even more fun) to watch anyways.


Playing the race card (on every stinking issue) is so exhausting and juvenile. You guys keep shoving more and more people (who truly are in the middle of the road politically) over to the Republicans.
Trump needs to stick to our nation's biggest issues.

It's not his job to tell Americans when they can and can't speak up.

For the life of me I will never understand being a big football fan for 40 years and then burning your season tickets over this issue. Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face. Me? I wasn't a fan of what Kap did, and Michael Bennett IS a lying fool. Sack and TD dances don't bother me, hey it's hard to make a big play in the NFL so enjoy the moment.


But none of this will ever make me stop watching a game I love. For those who will stop watching over this, well seems pretty foolish to me.

You’re only seeing half the picture. Football is 20-25 Sunday’s and a decent amount of time effort and money on top of that.

People SACRIFICE other things for football. Plenty of other activities out there. Just because someone gets fed up doesn’t mean they crawl under a rock and die.

oddly this topic has seemed to have died - shows the influence of the news cycle and people's attention span

A.most football fans aren't a bunch of whiny liberals that like to keep talking politics on a football forum. There is a section of cd for politics since you clearly like to keep bringing this up it might be a good place for you.

B. As with most discussions with liberals the liberal side takes no responsibility and ignores any points or facts that are made that against their argument. No point in continuing a discussion like that.

C. if people really did stop watching football they probably stopped going to football forums as well.

D. Most players are back to standing and respecting America again.

There is a dynamic to nationally televised sports events like SNF, MNF and TNF where there is a significant number of people that can say they watched something on TV, while, since you live close by, you have the chance to say that you were actually there.

For example, I watched the Boston College/Miami Doug Flutie Hail Mary game on live TV. I had lived in both the Miami and the Boston areas prior to this game, so I had an interest in watching it. This was probably the most significant college football game in my lifetime, and I was lucky enough to watch it unfold live. I can proudly mention I watched it live whenever the topic comes up. If I had been in the stands that day, I would probably be making sure the topic comes up more often!

People like to go to sporting events because they are events that a lot of people like to talk about. Usually it only lasts a week, but, anytime a conversation about that event occurs and someone involved was at the game, they always point out they were there. That is the motivation for more people to attend something that gets more attention, even though people don't realize it. And that is why we have progressed from Sunday afternoon NFL to game nights on Monday, Thursday and Sunday, because the people who benefit financially from having full attendance at the games like it that way.

Fact is as I've stated before, Trump had no business even commenting about this crap. Not his place and it did stir up the ingrates that actually think they're making some kind of statement that matters.


What Trump said was RIGHT. He just should have kept it to himself
