There are 3 games left for the NFL circus. Most of the people here on this thread ignored 256 regular season games and so far 8 playoff games with ease. I know the last 3 are the big games but Siraj somehow I think we are up to the challenge.

This former season-ticket holder (long ago) will be back on a trial basis only AFTER the commissioner, all thirty-two owners, and all kneelers and supporter are gone.

Answers:

-there have always been sunshine patriots in the world.

-FR has always had it’s share of Vichy conservatives.

-some people are so enamored with certain things (alcohol, drugs, politics, sex, sports) that they’ll do pretty much anything to continue to get them.

-they might have a financial interest.

-the bar for entry to FR is set low. That’s a good thing because we get some really bright people as a result. That’s a bad thing because we get some really not bright people as a result.

Parents are already doing that by refusing to let their kids play. Football is a dead sport walking.

Have it watched a second of the playoffs and will no longer watch pro football. In their quest to cater to the SJW types they crappedall over their their largest market segment. Goodbye NFL.

Sports writers are a fixing to have to get real jobs.

That does not work for me, because the national anthem is too closely tied to the Constitution. Because of the oath I took quoted below, I believe any grievance I perceive finds solution within boundaries revered by the Star-Spangled Banner. The oath has no defined duration, so I am still bound by it.

“I, Retain Mike, having been appointed an officer in the United States Navy, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the office upon which I am about to enter. So help me God.”

I was thinking, what if there was a designated sniper that could take out one of the players, at any time. That would make them pay notice.

At the very beginning of the video Bud Grant talks about his respect for the National Anthem, and demanded it from his players. “Hand over your heart, helmet hanging down from your left hand. No chewing gum, no scratching....”

[Lyrics] - Like the first few lines in this classic song say, my answer still is

No-no, no, no-no, no-no-no-no
No, no-no, no, no, no-no, no-no, no-no
No-no-no-no, no-no, no, no-no, no.

Young never been thru anything fanboy commentary. Go worship your glowing handheld electronic device...watching others getting paid to uselessly break the other guy..
the game was fun to PLAY but it is not bigger than life.there are other things that need to be done.So kiss off...you wore out the welcome when you insulted people who gave their all because of the actions of others...if the problems you assert exist are so prevalent go try to fix them. If you dont then shut up. We dont need you to tell us what happens in life...we know...

It’s not just the PACKERS. The entire league has spit on our flag and our country with their cheap bulls*t. I will not tolerate it.

Like the saying goes: “If you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything.”

God Bless America! Semper Fi!

Screw you, Washington Examiner. That’s my call, not yours. And I find your reference to coming back to the NFL as “coming home” insulting. If I have problems in my home, I fix it. I don’t enable bad behavior, rationalize/minimize it, and tell other people that they just don’t get it and that they’re the problem.
