The NFL and the NBA are not part of my home, and I worked with basketball for over thirty years.

IF I could get a refund on my Packers Share Certificate, I would take it in a heartbeat. It used to share wall space with my “REFLECTIONS” print by Lee Teter, but no longer does.

The FNFL is DEAD to me and that’s a fact.

kapernick is merely the straw that broke the camel’s back.
animal abusers, drug dealers, wife beaters and thugs, etc. are more of the problem, as is their attitude towards us. pro sports players of all leagues used to be role models first and foremost. not anymore.

you need me a lot more that I need you. the nfl has a LOT of cleaning up to do before I watch again.

Football players are not patriotic enough. Many of us served our country proudly and approve of the right to protest, but not against the flag. When it is against the flag, it is disrespectful. Who cares about football? The people running the game do not seem professional. The coaches have lost control of the players. The owners cannot control the players or the coaches. Many of the officials making calls screw up time after time. The commentators are not worth hearing. People are always getting hurt with head injuries. Football is not fun to watch!

And crappy players with low football IQ who can’t figure out all they have to do is tackle a receiver inbounds to win a game.

I prefer real exercise to the false sense of accomplishment TV sports gives.

“If you were hurt by players peacefully protesting during the national anthem to raise awareness for police brutality and racial inequality or NFL owners not hiring Kaepernick and want to continue boycotting the NFL, then that’s fine. The league doesn’t need you.”

The league also doesn’t need our money or our support through Sunday Ticket and/or Red Zone subscriptions or the purchases of clothing, caps or other paraphernalia.

I’m more than good with that.

Adios, Snowflakes.

Who in the hell is Siraj Hashmi to tell Americans “The league doesn’t need you.”

Did Siraj play high school football? Was he even in the United States?

Get out of our country !!

To the NFL SJWs: What changed that you suddenly feel the need to “protest” and disrespect the flag and country. You’ve done nothing but piss off a lot of fans for a questionable “cause”.

The league doesn't need you.

That's good. Then we're even.

I still love football. Next fall I might walk over and catch the local high school games.

Go back to your cricket and soccer games, Siraj.

I was astounded when I read that sentence.

If you were hurt by players peacefully protesting during the national anthem to raise awareness for police brutality and racial inequality or NFL owners not hiring Kaepernick and want to continue boycotting the NFL, then that's fine. The league doesn't need you. (Emphasis added)

Really? Are you trying to win back viewers or stir up the hornet's nest some more?

This sounds like the time they hired Jim Morrison to do an anti-drug PSA:

What he was supposed to do: Say "I'm Jim Morrison, from the Doors" and then say "in his own words" "don't do speed"
Take One:
"Hi, you little a******** out there listening to the radio instead of doing your homework. This is Jim Morrison, from the Do-"
Take Two:
"Hey, how you guys out there doin'? This is your old buddy, Jim Morrison. I sing with a group called the Doors, you mighta heard of them. We done a few songs, but I never wrote a song on speed. Drunk, hell yeahhhhhh -"
Take Three:
"Hey, this is Jim Morrison, from the Doors. I'm here to tell ya, shooting speed ain't cool, so snort it."
Take Four:
"Hello, this is Jim Morrison. Don't shoot speed. ..., you guys, smoke pot."
Take Five:
"Hi, this is Jim Morrison. Shooting speed ain't that smart, shooting speed kills geese, if you shoot a geese fulla speed, that goose is gonna swim in circles forever."
Take Six:
"Hello, this is Jim Morrison from the Doors and I just got one thing to say: Don't shoot speed. Speed kills. Please don't shoot speed, try downers, yeah downers, barbs, tranks, reds, they're much less expensive and -"

not until they totally clean up their act. totally. articles like this show the world that we are winning, and now is not the time to back down, or sell ourselves short.

you note how he insults us (put it on ice...the league doesn’t need you, etc.) well the league DOES need us, and if we stand together it will return to it’s glory days when fans didn’t have to suspend their belief systems for the sake of a game.

no seasonal games, no playoffs, no super bowl. no merchandise, no attendance, no souvenirs, no contributions. nothing.

no nfl until they get their act together.

Anti-American players and wealthy owners have not even begun to feel the pain of our boycott yet.

That is only going to happen once their current CBA and TV contracts expire.

No, we need to ramp it up, and keep it up, for quite awhile longer.

Honestly, it didn’t take much of a push for me not to care about a bunch of overpaid thugs bashing their brains out on a ball field. The games do often get exciting towards the end, but it’s usually not worth the mental energy leading up to it . . .
