Do you support football players obstainig from National Anthem before the game all in the name of Social Justice ? Should NFL players participate in politics while on the job ( playing football )???I know I was not allowed even talk politics ,much less participate in protests when I used to work!!! Do we pay them to play or to protest ??? If you want to protest for Social Justice , fine.......but do it on your own time!!!

I’m not a football fan, but I’m aware that the pro teams are made up of traitorous, brain dead millionaire criminals. And it would make me extremely happy to see an end of all pro sports except possibly hockey. And maybe the pro fights knocking the sense out of each other.

First why do we play the Anthem at games ?
You only pay them if you attend a game.
Our men and women who serve our Country, fight and die so we have the right to protest and those players have the right to freely express their beliefs .
Politics is all it is.

I am a football fan ... well, I used to be ... and I do not support this. However, their bosses are the NFL and their own leagues and individual organizations, so obviously if their employers deem it appropriate for them to act like spoiled little rich kids and try to lecture to the fans then it doesn't matter what the rest of us think. If we don't like it, which I do not, then we will not support the team. It is our choice.

It used to be enjoyable. It used to be a diversion. I'm told that, even if you skip the nonsense at the beginning of the game with the annoying attention placed on the players (if that team does not stay in the locker room) during the anthem, the studio guys who call the game discuss it and there are ads during the game placed by the NFL and other groups continuing with their "lecture" so there is no "waiting it out" or escaping it. Don't need that. I'm not guilty of anything and I choose not to be lectured by others in some pathetic attempt to force guilt upon me.

So my choice is to forget it altogether. And never will I purchase any item that will support the nfl or any of its leagues. If enough fans bow out because of this nonsense that the nfl sees a difference on their bottom line, then they'll probably change things. If not, then so be it. They can have it. I won't be lectured to.

If these guys really want to make a difference they can put their big bucks to work in communities where it can do some good. They are celebrities who have adoring fans of all races and are in the perfect position to go out into communities where there are problems and work to bring unity and better understanding of the issues. At the source. That's much more difficult, though. That takes time and effort. Taking a knee and putting a fist in the air while you're already there on the field to play a game ..... well, that's easy, isn't it?

They have a collective bargaining agreement that gives them rights while on the job, as long as their behavior doesn’t violate the contract they can behave as they feel appropriate. I find it odd that they play the anthem at sporting events at all. How many people go to work at a factory office or store, attend a film play or concert and stand for the National Anthem at every shift change or the start of an event?

When you have a life, you don't need the NFL.

Nor do you need to sit in front of a TV watching a bunch of poorly educated muscle brained goobers playing games with balls.

When you actually have a life, you you don't waste your time with such low brow entertainment.
