NFL owners to consider rule change that would require players to stand for national anthem

By me123 following x   2017 Oct 10, 9:35am 920 views   117 comments   watch   quote     share  

The owners of the NFL are reportedly considering a rule change that would make it mandatory for players to stand during the national anthem.

A league spokesman said that the owners would discuss the potential change during a meeting next week, Dow Jones reported.

In recent seasons, primarily black professional football players have knelt during the national anthem to protest racial inequality in the United States. The protests started after former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick last year began kneeling during the anthem to protest police mistreatment of black Americans.

Wait, how can the NFL do that, don't the players have "freedom of speech"??

.."Earlier Tuesday, President Donald Trump tweeted that tax laws should be changed so that the NFL doesn't get "massive tax breaks while at the same time disrespecting our Anthem, Flag and Country."

Ahhhh.... money (or lack of) talks where it counts!

The NFL assholes are protesting blacks being killed by white cops. That chart clearly shows that's the smallest number of homicides. If these players were REALLY SJW, they should be concerned with ALL homicides.

Why haven't they come out protesting Black on Black killings?


Black people who murder black people get prosecuted and convicted.
Police that murder black people are not being prosecuted and convicted.

THAT is the injustice that BLM and many others protest against. Are you going to pretend that you have not understood that, or are you really so dense that you have not understood that?

If the identity of the murderer is known, and there is a videotape of the murder, yeah, I'd say pretty much 100% of black-on-black murders are prosecuted.

This is just more dumbassery from you. Are you really trying to argue that solved police-on-black murder cases should not be prosecuted because that very same police is not able to solve enough black-on-black murder cases? I guess so. Par for the course. You just painted yourself into yet another corner.

It certainly is, you never cease to amaze us with your ignorance. Maybe if you had a really bright light on a helicopter, you could see things clearer.

So I'll ask you again, where are the stats, defend your statement.

You’re demanding that the NFL players stop kneeling and you’re demanding that the NFL owners do something about it.


I think the NFL players are brats to kneel.

I think the NFL owners/admins are full of PR Bullshit when they try to dodge taking on the Kneeling by using Freedom of Speech.

For the goddamn upteenth time, the NFL fines and suspends players for saying Dammit, making hand gestures, wearing Cancer Awareness Eyeblack, and basically runs their lives. But on this one issue all of a sudden the NFL is all about FREEDOMZ (tm)? Bullshit PR to dodge dealing with the issue, I say.

The only government action I thought would be necessary is pulling their tax-free, and taxpayer subsidized, largess. There STILL is no reason the NFL should be tax free even when they stand for the pledge going forward.

errc s...


I thought you were wrong then, but forgot to come back and let you know, but after hearing today that THE NFL STILL HASNT MADE ANY RULE CHANGES WRT KNEELING DURING THE ANTHEM, I remembered to come and correct you on your #FakeNews (that got 3 likes lol)

You're right. Those people are free to quit, and go play for another professional league.


Why would they do that when they can simply keep playing for the NFL, and peacefully protesting at the same time?

Seems like a win-win.

Tough for you Trumpcucks, because in your Anti-American attempt to disrespect our troops, our country, and our flag, you look like special snowflakes with egg on your face, and, once again, Total Failed Losers

"A win for me coming out of those meetings is that everyone's on the same page and trying to help the people in this country and use our game, which unites people from all different races, all different areas, all different levels of income, for one moment, for these games," Smith said to NBC Sports Philadelphia. "And there's no better platform than for us to work together and try to benefit our country.

"Our owners have the power to impact a lot of lives in terms of whether it's financially or their guidance. I feel like it's our duty. Obviously, we're playing ball but the fans that are cheering us on, the fans that are working in these stadiums, the fans that are working in these neighborhoods are affected by some of the things that we're fighting for.

"If anyone thinks it's not an issue for us to be involved in as athletes or the owners of the NFL, then you're looking at it dead wrong."

So many amazing tweets today. He knows he won this. Jerry Jones tried to split the difference but the public wasn't fooled, so now he's requiring them to stand.

I'd say you are American if you have UC citizenship. Not all NFL players are American. Some are non-Americans which means not US citizens. Why should they be required to salute a flag that is not theirs?

I think Roger Goodell made the right choice to make sure America is one less step closer to a dictatorship.

So far nothing. All the blowhard, fake patriots out there are getting laughed at.

Standing up doesn't make anyone a patriot. Protesting is more patriotic than fake gestures like that. America was founded on protests by people who didn't want to salute the Union Jack.

"I respond to them by saying that I prefer that our players stand, I've asked our players to stand, I think we're down to one player who has continued to kneel, but at the end of the day, this is America and we do have a thing called the First Amendment," Mara said. "And it's a right of free speech and a right to protest. That's one of the things our forefathers fought and died for, and that continues to be a principle that's very important to most of us."

They have already appeased the patriotic customers.

It’s not the job of the NFL to cater to Special Snowflakes that hate America.

Maybe if the whiners knew about The First Amendment, they’d STFU. But you can’t fix stupid, and the Anti-American whiners are a special brand of stupid.

Good on the NFL for taking a stand against the enemy, and honoring those who fought to preserve our Rights.

The NFL isn’t laughing about the drop in attendance or viewership. Money still talks, and people can still vote with their feet!
My point remains: the NFL must decide if it wants those dollars or if it will be happier as a leaner meaner SJW-type organization.

We all know which option you’d choose jojo. But you don’t run the NFL.

Personally I don’t care if they fix it at all! I rather hope they continue to piss of customers, lose fans, and free up American dads to spend more time with their kids and less time drinking beer and watching MEANINGLESS FUCKING BALL GAMES at their buddies’ houses!

Fuck the NFL!

And Fuck professional sports in general!

Generation after generation of black poverty can be attributed to a pervasive fiction sold to black kids that they are going to be professional players someday. Even the ones who do get scholarships usually never graduate. They get injured and lose the scholarship, can’t keep up grades while playing and wash out that way, or just graduate with worthless placeholder degrees and can’t get a job beyond bouncer at a club.
Even the 0.0001% who do make it to the professional level never make nor keep much money from the experience and wind up bouncers at slightly better clubs or possibly a bodyguard for someone rich.

So basically, if you love the NFL or the NBA, you automatically hate black kids.

“I think that our country is more important than a slight economic impact. And I think if we can come together and we can work together in this front, you’re going to bypass any economic downturn that you can possibly see because this issue is more important than economics,” York said. “For the NFL to come out strongly today and have that partnership with our players and start that partnership, I think it shows that. Honestly this is one of the proudest days that I’ve ever felt being a part of the National Football League.”

Dang Trump is having another Twitter tantrum, and the NFL is saying “fuck off, pussy”. This is great. It’s nice to see that America still stands for something, and Real Americans are giving Trump and his Cucks, the business.
