Your message is being heard upon deaf ears with the controversial kneeling at sporting events. True you are making a point and have a following, but how long has it been now and absolutely nothing has been achieved. Instead of expressing your views to such a small arena which is really your place of work, the following would get you noticed on a much larger scale and by people in the know that can make a change.

But first remember that Freedom is not Free. Many have given their all for that rite with their lives. What i am suggesting will cost you in dollars and only you can decide is it worth it.

Unite as many as you can of the teams and fans in your sport and protest at each and every State Capital in this land. Just imagine for a minute 10 or 15 teams locked arms and kneeling in unison surrounding a capital building. Peaceful it will be and permits to protest will be needed and like i mention, it will cost you in travel plans and accommodations.

So what do you think? You are in a business that have large organization and management support that can do the grunt work of setting up each event, why not put your dollars to a good use.

Freedom from what concerns you, is not Free.

If it wasn’t having an effect you fragile snowflakes wouldn’t have your panties in a bunch over it, would you? This protest is working brilliantly, it has effectively forced football fans that normally don’t give racism a second thought to think about it. Their only option is to walk away from a sport they love. Think how much clowns like Rush Limbaugh must miss football, or more likely are forced to watch this dignified protest. Either way it is a win.

How in this world do you think it is a win for the players? Only the fans have noticed and they do did ally squat for what is bothering the players.

"Either way it's a win". Give me F****** break. Roger Goodell, and the owners of those NFL frnchise teams will watch their revenue decline, and will be responsible for the decline of the sport. Yes, I used to love football. But I will not spend a dime of my money supporting what the NFL has become. I hope others like me send the same message.

Here's the problem - - tRump has been inciting violence on the Far Right since his campaigning days, and he's only gotten worse and even more polarized since.

I absolutely DO NOT personally agree with any violence myself, but the Far Left has gotten burned AND burned out over the rhetoric.

Why not just add withholding your dollars from all those sponsors that look to advertise to the NFL or any of the other sports...

Owners is sports don’t care as long as the money rolling in for them, take the money away and watch to change...

Personally I don’t care one way or the other I’m done with all of it and I was an avid football/baseball fan...

I think you've got this wrong, Kev. The fragile snowflakes are out on the field kneeling and backing the kneelers. Most red-blooded Americans are disgusted with them and might gradually return if and when they abandon their childish behavior. I was at a birthday party Sunday attended by many formerly-enthusiastic NFL supporters. The TV set was not turned on, a fact that previously would have been unheard of with that group. Many people have come to realize how juvenile-acting the players, coaches and owners are, a fact which has become apparent in the dwindling football watchers around the Country. Rush is a big football fan and I prefer to give him accolades for opting for patriotism rather than tantrums.

Limbaugh is an unrepentant dope fiend who gave himself cancer by chain smoking cigars. He is angry with pro football because they rejected him for being a loud mouthed scumbag.

I used to love football too. Those days are long gone. All these prima donnas are accomplishing is alienating people and hurting their sport.

Ironic too that many of those who support this kneeling also made a big stink about Tim Tebow kneeling.

I remember that very well - Mr. Tebow is twice the man any of these kneeling, overpaid adolescents will ever be.
The majority of the NFL is disgusting. If anyone doubts me, explain how this practice isn't disgusting!!

Keep it up Mr. K, if you are lucky, maybe someday you will be as successful as Rush. I believe the "loud mouthed scumbag" you are mentioning was actually Michael Vick - you remember him, the dog fighter who got caught and had cruelty to animals charged filed against him, yeah that's the one - the 3rd rate quarterback that Rush called out for being 3rd rate. Pissed off some of the NFL big wigs so they blocked Russ as punishment for what? Telling the truth, about not only a 3rd rate QB but a piss-poor excuse of a human being; ever see a dog fight between two pit bulls? Disgusting sight, only way to determine the winner is one dog has to die, or be close to it.
Like Rush, I'm disgusted with the NFL because the forgot they are "entertainment", that's it. No thinking person gives a fat rats behind what their politics is, and doesn't want to know.
