I just got done watching Rich Eisen, Marshall Faulk, Kurt Warner, Steve Mariuchi and Michael Irvin... all wringing their hands and talking about "unity" with crocodile tears in their eyes because President Trump said players who kneel for the National Anthem should be fired. 

What a joke. The irony is that if anyone on that panel dared to speak in favor of the President, their asses would be off that panel so fast they wouldn't know what hit 'em.

Look, I get it when people don't like Trump. He's a polarizing figure, and intentionally so. But the flag and the National Anthem are representative of the men and women who have served and died protecting this country. There is no excuse to sit. None. Especially by a bunch of overpaid millionaires playing a child's game. 

Where was the outrage when Colin Kaepernick was wearing socks with pigs dressed like cops on them?

Hypocrites. Eyes 

And Rich Eisen... seriously... STFU.  Laugh  

The NFL should be very careful about getting on the wrong side of this. I don't think they understand that lashing out at the President is in reality lashing out at their fan base, not because their fan base is filled with Trump supporters but because what Trump said is exactly what most fans are thinking. The delicate ears of sports media apparently can't take it. Do they ever stop to read the comments on their own message boards? 

I will continue to follow the Steelers and I have plans to buy tickets for the Steelers/Lions game in Detroit since tickets are still available and it's a much easier drive than 6 hours each way to Pittsburgh. If the teams behave with respect, I'll purchase my tickets today. 

But if I see players sitting and protesting in Detroit or Pittsburgh today? F--- that noise. I won't not spending $500+ on tickets to support that kind of disrespectful bullshit. 

Watching closely.
Just watched the asshole Jaguars and Ravens -- while overseas in England -- kneeling during our National Anthem, and then standing during Great Britain's National Anthem.

Clueless.  Mad  Embarassed  Thumbdown

Apparently, there are no history majors on either team. Otherwise, they'd know that the British slave trade was responsible for slavery being in America (a British colony) in the first place. Morons!  Eyes  Eyes  Eyes 

F--- you and your lame-ass uniforms, Jaguars. And F-- you, Ravens, just for being the Ravens.

Still think this is borderline treason. But hey, its not like they committed murder. Ask Ray Lewis, he was there.

Treason???  Scared  Pi_shocked  

Holy moly! It's stupid and disrespectful, but it's definitely NOT treason.  Laugh
Protesting the USA on foreign soil. Sounds like serious stuff to me.
I remember when a Steelers fan wanted Mendenhall charged with treason for his Bin Laden comments. LOL
