Now, I would love nothing better than to see 1/2 the people in the stands NOT STANDING for the anthem. All of this descension in the U.S. is building up and there is only one to blame for it escalating the way it is...........*removed* HEAD TRUMP. How so many Americans can by into his verbal *removed* and ignorance is utterly amazing.

Knowing there are 8 teams with only 1 win or less, you would think 1 of those teams would take a chance give him 1 year minimum $$$ league contract.
Can't get much worse then it already is for those teams.

On his own time, yes. Most employers don`t take kindly to you pulling grandstanding stunts while on their time.

Interesting since he (Colin Kaepernick) has not played game this season. It appears numerous players, coaching staff & those owners you mentioned (employers) have been protesting at games this season.

Most employers will look the other way if your job performance is putting millions into their pockets.

Aaron Rogers is most likely gone for the season, would GBP look at Colin.

This past weekend when Aaron went down, his replacement did not get the job done.
Next up for GBP is the Saints, they would win with a healthy Aaron.... lets see how the backup does.

Meanwhile in same division currently tied atop is Minnesota, they get Baltimore.

Kneeling football players

Postby Kareem a-Weet » Oct 30th, 2017, 2:44 pm

I have the perfect solution to this: Those who kneel for the US national anthem are benched for the game. Simple. If all but 3 players kneel, then that team only lets 3 players play. If they lose the game, tough.

Thanks! I've merged the topics/ferri
I have never tried Yoga but I bent over to pick up my keys once so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like it.

Like it or not, they have the right to protest and there nothing anyone can do about it. Owner of Texans did not help any by his comments.
