Judging by the severely decreased attendance at football games, the actual effect of these racist, anti-American, yet highly paid players seems to be separate from any Trump angers at their stupid antics. Their actions will destroy not only attendance, but viewership. The nation gets to suffer because of some ignorant asses pretending to know something other than getting foolish White folk to pay them too much money. They are no different than the trash looting, burning and attacking police in the Black ghettos. They are too stupid to know even what is good for them any longer. It'll be hilarious to watch more and more of them out of the game without any team willing to play them.

If attendance and viewership are down so much for this and for other reasons, you say, then the nation is not suffering due to these non disruptive, symbolic protests. By your insane, self contradicting reasoning there's not many people, and a severely declining number, even paying attention to the sport to begin with.

You simply don't like blacks "being uppity" in any context.

Players signed a contract to faithfully and respectfully represent their respective teams for a helluva lot of money. They are discrediting their teams and teammates by these ridiculous insertions of their ignorance at times of the teams standing to respect our flag and nation. You screwballs aren't fooling many people any longer. More and more people are approving of Trump because of your stupidity and your stupidity alone.

There is no reason these progressive anarchists freedom fighters can't express their disgust for the national anthem and what it stands for.

No, you're the ignorant one, white supremacist [sic]. And while I am sure that the owners, like most all business owners, would prefer to avoid involvement in heated controversies the owners have not mentioned anything about the players' contracts and how those contracts might reflect on silent, non disruptive protests before the game. Why don't you ring up the owners and 'splain to them what their contracts with their players actually mean?

Didn't you use the "wrong" n-word by accident there? Or are you _embarrassed_ by your white supremacist [sic] beliefs or something?

It's been proven Trump isn't a racist. What's been proven is that you and the other snowflakes repeat the tripe you are fed by your handlers that use you then throw you away after you have served as useful idiot.

Yep, it used to be a sport, but now it's nothing but a political football for the left. I quit watching pro whiners eight years ago. They make millions and still whine. It's the liberal in them.

How has that been proven? The president just had a campaign rally(stupid) and basically said these people should be fired for expressing their first amendment rights. He's a moron, a racist, and insane. If Obama had been having rallies all over the country after election, your head would have exploded. There is no reason for the dictatoresque behavior.

It's those showing disrespect for our nation and supporting the cop killer Black Lies Matter rioters, who are the racists. You and the freak from Philly misrepresent what was said. It certainly isn't Blacks, who are paying the ignorant players millions of dollars. The insensitivity to the their contracts and their own people's neighborhoods shows these strutting buffoons to be the real racists.

White supremacist [sic], you think being racist is laudable and you are openly a racist...of the most explicit white supremcist [sic] sort. You're terribly ill is all in trying to deny it.

The Week That Perished @Takimag

TRUMP V. NFL PLAYERS
"NFL ratings have been sliding since last year after quarterback Colin Kaepernick—who sorta looks like the bastard child of Frank Zappa and Angela Davis—decided to ignore statistics and kneel during the National Anthem. Paying absolutely zero heed to crime rates, Kaepernick said he was protesting all of these racist cops who are allegedly roaming the streets shooting down young black males just for the freakin’ fun of it.

At a rally in Alabama on Friday, President Donald Trump earned roars of approval when he suggested that NFL owners should start firing players who disrespect the National Anthem. He also counseled fans to leave the stadium the moment they observe such shenanigans:

"The only thing you could do better is, if you see it—even if it’s one player—leave the stadium. I guarantee things will stop. Things will stop. Pick up and leave. Just pick up and leave. You know, some owner is going to do that…[and] they will be the most popular person in this country. Because that’s a total disrespect of our heritage, that’s a total disrespect of everything that we stand for."

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell condemned Trump on Saturday, calling his comments “divisive” and indicative of “an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL.”

Silly us—we thought disgustingly pious and athletically irrelevant attempts to inject black-power politics into the NFL was what was disrespectful."

The point you ignored there was that the sick offal fake decrying "racism" is an overt white supremacist [sic], and as you show all the time that was a perfect example of what passes for intellectual honesty and rigor on the right.

The key stat about gun violence in the Us is that the vast bulk of gun deaths in the US each year come from gun owners' own accidents, domestic disputes, suicides. Your "Chicago thugs" are a drop in the bucket compared to what gun owners do to themselves with their guns.
