LOL!

"ATLANTA -- NFL owners have unanimously approved a new national anthem policy that requires players to stand if they are on the field during the performance but gives them the option to remain in the locker room if they prefer, it was announced Wednesday."

There wasn't any regulation until AFTER Tebow, when the NFL put in rules on religious expression on the field.


Except religious celebrations were allowed so that pretty much kills your narrative. Tebow wasn't penalized as I posted earlier.

Seriously--did you read the article? Tebow WASN'T penalized after the rules were in place. Abdullah WAS. Some Muslims (not "the left") asked why the double standard and the NFL agreed and allowed praying just like it allowed Tebow's celebration.

So, the only hypocrites are Trump supporters. Again.

I guess I need to repeat myself yet again.

When Tebow was kneeling for Jesus, mostly around 2011, there were no NFL restrictions on end zone praying.

AFTER, key word after.
After after after like in after shave or afterburn
AFTER
AFTER
AFTER Tebow

The NFL adopted broader and firmed restrictions on striking poses on the field, sometime around 2013.

Because of the "Don't mix religion and National Pasttime" complaints from the Left. Like this one:
https://deadspin.com/5861845/a-guide-to-determining-your-stance-on-tim-tebow

THEN, that is AFTER The NFL strengthened enforcement on end-zone "celebrations" were in place, THEN Abdullah did his Muslim thing. When the Refs went to apply the new more stringent rule for the first time, the same people who bitched about Tebow's kneeling, screamed "Muh Islam!" over Abdullah, and the NFL refused to back the Refs.

And then, of course, the same Left that wanted Tebow to stop his kneeling for Jesus, fought for Kopernick's kneeling for Castro.

NCAA banned Eyeblack Messages in 2010 because players began putting bible verses on them that triggered Leftists.

Nobody complains about the NBA rules that require players to line up for the national anthem, each and every dame game, no exceptions, no hiding in the locker room.

Your entire premise is bullshit. It's all BS.

Seriously read up on the rules. You are completely wrong on this.

Like spectacularly wrong.

The rule says nothing about religion. Guys get penalized for pretending to do jump shots. Or snow angels.

Praying is now and has always been allowed.

Wrong. The regulation was updated BECAUSE of Tebow, to limit to a few seconds (3?) any demonstrations in the end zone.

And the eyeblack ban was definitely in response to biblical message

Nope. You are wrong. Please show any source to support the NFL change had anything to do with Tebow or religion.

http://www.businessinsider.com/nfl-cracking-down-on-choreographed-celebrations-2016-9
https://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2016/10/07/the-dos-and-donts-of-nfl-celebrations/

from the 2nd article:

Here’s what’s allowed: (1) dancing that is not sexually suggestive; (2) celebrations with teammates that are not choreographed; (3) spiking the ball, as long as it’s not directed at an opponent; (4) spinning the ball, as long as it’s not directed to an opponent; (5) bowing to the crowd; (6) saluting; ) going to the ground in prayer; (8) the “Lambeau Leap”; and (9) handing the ball to the official.

Here's an article from 2013 detailing the changes. There is absolutely no reference to Tebow or religion at all:

The NFL did the right thing and the players should be happy they can stay in the hallway/lockers for the anthem. Fucking media whore hypocrites now running running around whining "oh it's like denying Martin Luther King the passage over the bridge he was crossing during his protest yada yada". This has exactly zero to do with MLK and is actually an insult to MLK. MLK didn't get paid millions of dollars by his employer to do work (play football), he was protesting racial injustice in his free time, in fact he made it his mission and is rightfully remembered for his cause. The NFL players are free to do so as well, but not during the games when working for their employer. Don't care much about the NFL but it's only logical they don't get signed. They should shove their phony lawsuits up their asses.

You think the NFL is gonna come out and say "We changed the rules to stop future Christians from giving thanks to Jesus in the endzone"

Hell No.

So they toughened the rules on "Pre Planned Celebrations".

Exactly. The same exact people whinging about John 6:14 eyeblack and Trebow's prayers and demanding NFL action to "de-religionize" Football are the exact same people saying disrespecting the anthem is nothing and that Millionaire Players' expressing fringe political beliefs on Company Time is sacred.

It wasn’t because of Tebow, nobody gave a shit about him because he was horrible at football.

The rules were put in place because Terrel Owens was doing elaborate celebrations and using props, and the same bunch of whinger old racist white losers were complaining it was ruining the game

Interesting, as hard as I look, I don't see a single person kneeling during the national anthem at NASCAR races. There certainly is a hell of a lot more people on pit road than there is on the sidelines of a NFL game. Surely you would expect a few kneelers, right?

When it comes to Colin Kaepernick’s continuing protest, everyone’s on the same page about one thing: choosing not to stand for the national anthem is a recognizable sign of protest. It only makes sense as a statement because standing is customary.


He can protest in his free time, not at work. The NFL has ruled. The case is closed.

Yes, you're finally learning the correct logic:

NFL viewership down and study suggests it’s over protests
While the NFL attributes the decline in ratings to the presidential race, a study conducted by Rasmussen Reports shows otherwise. Approximately 1,000 American adults participated in a telephone questionnaire on Oct. 2-3 that revealed nearly one-third (32 percent) are “less likely to watch an NFL game” due to players taking a stand and protesting the national anthem. Thirteen percent want to watch a game because of the protests.
https://theundefeated.com/features/nfl-viewership-down-and-study-suggests-its-over-protests/

NASCAR Fans Are Racing Away From The Sport Even Faster
NASCAR has changed its rules so many times to gin up competition that the show seems contrived. The most preposterous innovation was to divide races into “stages,” where points are awarded after each segment and the cars are bunched back up and then restarted. Fans grumble that there are, or seem to be, more advertisements wedged into a telecast. So there is no continuity, no unspooling of the narrative thread.
