The NFL Swirling Down the Death Spiral of Popularity…FAST

788

Who could have dreamed it? The National Football League, which depends on the love and support of millions of American patriots and conservatives for its ongoing popularity, is now facing a slump of historic proportions thanks to its untimely, ill-advised stance against the national anthem.

You would have thought that someone in Commissioner Roger Goodell’s office would have told him, “You know, boss, maybe we’re playing with fire here? NFL fans aren’t, by and large, known for their liberal activism.” You’d think that, but if anyone had that kind of advice for him or anyone else in the NFL’s front office, they were ignored. Instead, players have been allowed, week after week, to stage their little protests against the anthem and the flag. These protests haven’t had the slightest effect on the “problem” of police shooting black suspects, but they’ve had a terrible effect on the NFL’s bottom line.

As first reported by the Washington Examiner, a new poll shows that the NFL’s popularity has taken an enormous dive in recent weeks. The poll, taken by the Washington-based Winston Group, shows that the NFL now has the highest unfavorability ratings of any major sport in America. 40% of Americans now have an unfavorable view of the league, officially making it the least-liked major sports organization in the country. Meanwhile, the favorability ratings have also tumbled. At the end of August, 57% of the country had a favorable view of the NFL. By the end of September and the league’s silly little feud with President Donald Trump, only 44% said they had a favorable view of the institution.

“More critically for the NFL, the fall off in favorables occurred among important audiences,” reported the Winston Group. “Among males, NFL favorables fell 23 percent, going from 68 percent to 45 percent. In looking at a more specific audience, males 34-54, NFL favorables fell 31 percent, going from 73 percent to 42 percent. Among this group the NFL has a surprising negative image, as it went from +54 percent in August to -5 percent in September.”

Ticket sales are down, TV ratings are sinking like a stone, and the NFL has shown no signs of stepping in to even encourage players to make their voices heard in a more constructive manner. There appears to be nothing but contempt for the viewing audience, in fact, and the league may have already missed any chance it might have had at winning back disgruntled fans. In fact, with every passing week, the anger among patriotic Americans is only growing.

      1. Mathew Molk says

        Nothing to do with taking the knee. Nobody wants him because HE SUCKS!

    Perhaps I am a bit alone. Coverage of most sports on TV has gone south for years and college coverage is usually worse than the pros. 1st I cover the bottom of the screen ‘news and scores’ that runs for hours. Then turn off the sound so I can’t hear the endless drivel (but I miss the sounds like a racket hitting a ball). Then I go to TCM to see what movie is playing. Yesterday I actually heard an announcer talk about a players 6’th grade achievements. I DON’T CARE. Sad part is I’ve seen too many of the TCM movies already.

    1. comanchewill says

      jim youre just old….go lay down and rest now….maybe there will be another day tomorrow

        Hope Jim lives to be a ripe old age. On the other hand, the human race needs culled of the mental midgets like yourself. Go back to your room in the basement.and play your video games.

      4. Mathew Molk says

        Why don’t you bust outs go to Church in the morning and grab a rake and start piling uo the leaves in the afternoon. Football has always been what I do when I have nothing better going on.

    2. PatriotGal says

      Try Hallmark channels – they’ve been running great movies.

  2. Bill O'Neil says

    It’s too bad right-wingers don’t care as much about the 1st amendment as they do about the 2nd amendment!!!

    1. Retired says

      So you support the hate that is being displayed , what a great example they make for children growing up . Maybe you and the players all need a trip to North Korea or Iran where they will educate you , that is if they let you out alive ????? You must be another one who never spent time in the service ???

      1. Bill O'Neil says

        I understand how a Putin troll like you does not care about the 1st amendment to the constitution.

        1. Retired says

          Don’t troll for no one , but YOU are proving to be a Demon Rat TROLL .

          1. Bill O'Neil says

            I care about the 1st amendment freedoms. You clearly do not!!!

          2. Retired says

            What you care about is the abuse of the 1st ,which was approved by the liberal Supreme Court .

          3. chucky001 says

            Isn’t it ironic, “retired”, that you are reaping the benefits of another liberal program? I’m talking about social security and medicare. O’Neill is spot on and you are a clueless, hypocritical trumptard.

          4. JMICHAEL270 says

            He paid in more than he will ever receive

          5. Amargomate says

            Really?…I don’t see you complaining anywhere about welfare and housing programs… Programs, by the way, the ones that “enjoy” them, never put a dollar on it.
            SS and Medicare…we the workers and our employers, put money on it for years and years, before reaping anything…
            So… explain to me and everybody else here, how is possible that after many, many years of contributing to it, we don’t have the right to “enjoy” a return from ours contributions, in the meantime, we have to support the leeches that “enjoy”
            social programs without contributing a penny on they miserables lives…ever..

          6. Mike says

            Most estimates for those collecting social security would use all of the money they put into it in approximately seven to eight years so after that it is just welfare. It is the largest welfare program in our country. I am not saying it is wrong as we should support those that cannot support themselves, but once you have been collecting social security for over that period of time you are just another welfare recipient.

          7. ernldo says

            You don’t even know what those “rights” are…

          8. Bill O'Neil says

            You are projecting.

          9. ernldo says

            Go play with your blow up hitlery doll, a$$hole…I block troll nitwits….consider your blocked….

          10. Amargomate says

            Not you don’t… you use it… against anybody that don’t think like you….
            Classic communist tactic… well know around the globe now….
            If you like our freedoms so much, like you said, you can’t never criticize the Second, witch by the way, is the Freedoms more representative…
            Don’t be an hypocrite…

          11. Bill O'Neil says

            You people at the Russian troll farm need a little work on your English!

        2. Henry D Messer says

          WAKE UP AND THE ROSES

          1. Henry D Messer says

            That’s SMELL THE ROSES

    2. Deby says

      oh surprise, a communist post.

      1. Bill O'Neil says

        Another anti-American Putin troll!!!

      2. chucky001 says

        True communism has never been tried. What has been tried in the USSR, China, NK, Iran and IS, however, are authoritarian regimes that suppress freedom of expression such as kneeling during a national anthem. Thank you, Deby, for allowing me to relieve your ignorance. And stupidity.

        1. JMICHAEL270 says

          You better look in the mirror

          1. ernldo says

            chucky would see a baboon-like, chin drooler in the mirror. He/she is an idiot, you should just block the miscreant….

          2. Bill O'Neil says

            You are saying he looks like Trump.

          3. ernldo says

            You have comprehension issues, I said he looks like you….

        2. Deby says

          Easy there Komrade chucky!! Hit a nerve did I?

    3. chucky001 says

      Well, they need the 2nd amendment so they can be assured of having things to compensate for insecurities about their manhood. If it’s heat you’re packin’, it’s cause in the pants you’re lackin’!

        Looks that today the pipe still on the floor by the bed…..
But, see, that problem, can be fixed with a little blue pill….
        On the other hand you can use the words of Woodrow Wilson to explain how you come out with such brainy quote:
        “I not only use all the brains that I have, but all I can borrow.”

            You keep using Comrade , commonly used by Russian Bots like you . Better be care full the US Russian KGB will be visiting you .

          3. Stikit says

            Your stuck with stupid. So it makes no difference how I communicate with an anti-fa-Commie, as yourself.

          4. Stikit says

    6. ernldo says

      Odd, I doubt you actually understand what the first amendment even protects….

      1. Bill O'Neil says

        Another troll projecting.

        1. ernldo says

          Couldn’t even name one, you are a racist…a GAY RACIST!
          (couldn’t resist)

          1. Bill O'Neil says

            Don’t hold back. Show everyone what a gutter rat you are.

          2. Retired says

            Why must you brag about yourself like that , NYC is full of sewer RATS like you !!!!

    7. Henry D Messer says

      Since Eric Reid doesn’t doesn’t care about V-P Pence’s 1st Amendment, I recon neither side cares for. Mr. Bill O’Neil.

    8. Amargomate says

      Second Amendment is there to protect us and anybody else, from the ones that use the First to say whatever they want to say, with out responsibilities.
      So… if communists stop hiding behind the First, we will be not forced to use the Second…

      1. Bill O'Neil says

        You Russian trolls need a little more polish.

        1. Amargomate says

          Well… I don’t know, if you now that are a lot of Russian that are not COMMUNISTS like you….
          So..anything else apart from calling names?…

          1. Bill O'Neil says

            See, that is what a troll does. Call someone a commie when you don’t have anything to contribute. It would almost be funny if it were not so stupid.

          2. Amargomate says

            Ok Bill… what we where talking about?
            Ah…yes…. about the First and the Second amendments….
            I said…
            “Second Amendment is there to protect us and everybody else, from the ones that use the First to say whatever they want to say, with out responsibilities.
            So… if communists stop hiding behind the First, we will be not forced to use the Second”…

            This is verbatim…. so… when I called YOU communist?…
            May be because you hide behind the first, and you knowing that, react accordingly?….

            So…after that, tell me… what was your contribution, that I failed to correspond?

          3. Bill O'Neil says

            You keep referring to how you hate such things as freedom of speech and freedom of the press. Why would anyone be like that unless you were an anti-American?

          4. Amargomate says

            Really?…Where I said that I hate freedom the speech and freedom of press?
            Don’t force my hand to call you a liar… show me, and everybody else here, where I said that….

          5. Bill O'Neil says

            When you accused me of hiding behind the 1st amendment, that shows you hate the 1st amendment.

          6. Amargomate says

            Looks like you have a problem with understanding. Very clearly I had asked you, not accused you

            “May be because you hide behind the first, and you knowing that, react accordingly?….
            Key words here…..May be, you knowing that…react.

            The elaboration of the answer is up to you….

            Look…. my profile is open… you can look and see if you can found on any of my 1500 and some opinions if I said anything agains the First Amendment even once… You will see that my defense of the Second is on many, many of my post.
            I’m a member of the NRA… I had experience with weapon, I own several guns, I practice at least 1 day every two weeks with them… I’m a Conservative by heart….
            Where you got that the right wingers do not respect the First Amendment?
            Because, if you want I can redirect you to many, many posts where the left wingers are the ones that disrespect the First with the intent to shut up someone that have a different idea… And most of the time, with insults of serious caliber. Of course, they do that, here, and other forums, because the anonymity of internet, allow them to get away with it…
            On the streets, on real life….that is another story….
            So… where you got the idea about we disrespect the First?

          7. Bill O'Neil says

            OK, lets approach this from another direction. When you say “maybe I hide behind the 1st amendment”. First of all how do you “hide” behind the 1st amendment? That doesn’t even make sense unless you are inferring some negative connotation of exercising freedom of speech and freedom of the press etc. I assume you are a Trump supporter and he clearly would like to act like a dictator and do away with freedom of the press, so it’s logical to assume you support these anti-American leanings of Trump.

          8. Amargomate says

            OK..let’s do it…
            First… Yes… I ‘am a Trump supporter….don’t need to assume it anymore.
            When I said ” hide” is self explanatory….
            Example with the media: Never in the history of this country, a President has been attacked by the MSM with the ferocity than President Trump.
            I don’t say that. Their own stats say so…

            And that’s OK….opposition is great, help to keep things clean…

            But in this case… has been hundreds of innuendos, hearsay, and in some cases, plain and simple lies. When we the complain about it, or reclaim to prove it…The answer was and is…. We don’t have to, we are protected by the First, we don’t have to give up our sources…. and so on…
            So… nobody is responsible… for anything?…

            Come on….the First don’t allow you to use a lie, or something that somebody else said but you can prove, like is the truth, The First is to Protect everybody from the same things the MSM has been using for politicals gains.
            If Trump tried to act as a Dictator, he has tools, or would act like Obama did, when he used the IRS against conservative organizations.Remember?

            Now, can you clarify a little, the meaning of “anti-American leanings of Trump”…
            Because I don’t see them… what I see is, President Trump erasing, phone and pen, measures taken by Obama by the same way, and passing them to the Congress where they belong, to become law… by Congress… no by the President… any President…

            .

          9. Bill O'Neil says

            OK, let’s start with the media. Are you aware that Fox News was taken to court several years ago for lying when giving the news? The court ruled that it is OK for Fox News to lie. So if you have a problem with lies, I suggest you take it up with Fox News. As for the rest of the MSM lying about Trump, I have not seen anyone give me an example of that. Trump’s lies are well documented, all you have to do to verify is roll the video tape. Another point you may have missed along the way is the fact that the MSM gave Trump an estimated 2 billion dollars worth of free media coverage during his presidential campaign. Far, far in excess of any other candidate. As for Trump’s anti-American leanings: that is on full display when he says he wants to shut down “freedom of the press” by shutting down NBC. Another example is when he would tell his supporters to go beat up protesters at his rallies. Protests are protected by 1st amendment. And Trump is such a hypocrite; during his campaign he was constantly complaining about Obama’s “executive orders”. Now that’s all he does, all of which do nothing but hurt the average “man on the street”. His first executive order his first day in office made it harder for the “little guy” to get a home loan. And everyone since then was designed to hurt Americans, hence more examples of his anti-American leaning. Basically it is time you Trump supporters wake up and realize he doesn’t give a damn about you or this country, all he cares about is lining his own pockets and acting like a dictator. One last point, I hope the MSM stays on Trump’s case because never before in the history of this country have we had such an unstable, un-presidential person in the oval office. He is a total embarrassment to us on the world stage.

          10. Amargomate says

            About Fox and lies….
            Something interesting that you left out is:
            The lawsuit against Fox, was not against Fox directly, was against a FOX affiliate WTVT in Tampa, Florida.
            The law suite was not about lying or not, was about the decision by WTVT to no renew the contract of Akre and Wilson …
            The issue was not for day-to-day programming, but a special episode involving Monsanto and bovine growth hormone. The law suit was filled by Akre and Wilson against WTVT for their dismissal from the station.
            All the details are here: http: //www.snopes.com/politics/business/foxlies.asp
            To a most complete info check here: https: //en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WTVT#Monsanto_controversy
            So…. Fox din’t win any right to lie because Fox or FoxNews were not even involved.
            For WTVT…the defendant in this case, 100% of claims by Wilson the accusations of lying were rejected by the court outright in the original 2000 hearing. Akre invoke whistler blower protection awarding her $425,000 , that was reversed in 2003 appeal…Details here:
            http://caselaw.findlaw.com/fl-district-court-of-appeal/1310807.html

            Now, is this case similar to NBC News cover up of Ronan Farrow piece about Harvey Weinstein?…I don’t know…Let’s wait and see, but Matt Lauer Comes Clean On NBC Weinstein Cover-Up

            So… FOX won the right to lie in court….debunked….FAKE NEWS…

            You say: “As for the rest of the MSM lying about Trump, I have not seen anyone give me an example of that.”

            Here we go:
            1 – Trump lie about muslims dancing and cheering at rooftops and in the streets, in September 11 of 2001…
            http://www.bizpacreview.com/2015/11/23/live-jersey-trump-right-muslims-celebrate-911-nj-saw-277082

            And FYI, I chose this one first, because I was there to, and I saw it too.

            Interesting article about the MSM lies and how are debunked…

            http://www.snopes.com/2017/07/12/trump-lies/

            So, there you have it… more than one….Specially the 1- because I was a witness. I lived and worked in NYC for 30 years, until I retired in 2015 and moved to Central Florida….

            You say: “ the MSM gave Trump an estimated 2 billion dollars worth of free media coverage during his presidential campaign.”…

            That Is true, but you CONVENIENTLY forgot to say that all that spending by MSM was devoted to NEGATIVE PROPAGANDA not in support of him…. Against him, his family, his ideas, his business, etc …

            Now, tell me, tell us… Why you think MSM did that, why the MSM throw away such amount of money?
            I’m going for the easy and practical answer.
            Because all of them ’KNEW”… They were so SURE… that Hillary was going to win, that put all their eggs in her basket, knowing that one way or another she would reward them later…

            Well… She lost… They lost…. And Trump won, against all predictions..
            In another words…. They not only gambled their money, but also their reputation … and they lost
            Now they are paying the consequences….

            You say: “Another example is when he would tell his supporters to go beat up protesters at his rallies. Protests are protected by 1st amendment.”
            You are talking about the same right that ANTIFA… the communists at Campus, the BLM, and other daily routinely violate violently, not allowing others to expose their ideas, because they are different from theirs?.. We are talking about the same right?

            You say: “ Obama’s “executive orders”. Now that’s all he does”… Yes is true…. He is using the same tool that Obama used to impose on us, his will…
            Remember Obama’s words “I will use my pen and phone to take on Congress”
            Well he is doing exactly the same to reverse what Obama did it, and send the ball to the Congress to do their job….

            You say: “His first executive order his first day in office made it harder for the “little guy” to get a home loan…

            Well, I must say, that you are very poorly informed or you are lying for some reason.
            I will like to think that is for the first option. Explain to me and us all, you statement, because this is the First Ex. Or reported by no other than the NYT….so…how this order make harder for the “little guy” to get a home loan…
            Here is: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/20/us/politics/trump-executive-order-obamacare.html

            You say: “ Basically it is time you Trump supporters wake up and realize he doesn’t give a damn about you or this country, all he cares about is lining his own pockets and acting like a dictator.”

            Well, I can understand you pain because your candidate lost… Is normal, nobody like to lose..
            Lining his pockets?…You realize that he was a BILLIONAIRE before become President, right?
            I don’t say this…FORBES say it… and Forbes nows a thing or two about millionaires and money

            Here it’s: https://www.forbes.com/profile/donald-trump/

            Now, about lining their pockets, your description apply very much to the Clintons…
            The Clintons were “dead broke” when they left the White House, according to Hillary. But since 2001, they have earned more than $230 million, according to Forbes. Many of those millions came from highly-compensated speeches given all over the world, some of them delivered to Wall Street banks.⟽ ….Uh!.. 😟.. According to Forbes too..
            So, who do you think has been filling their pockets the most?…

            You say: “He is a total embarrassment to us on the world stage.”…
            Really… Look to the pictures and tell me. us.. what is more embarrassing?
            And what was the message to the world?

            This is like a résumé … you read a line or two and move on.

            OUT OF YOUR COUNTRY!!!… To who you think are talking to?
            What happen… the truth hurts? And you call yourself a Conservative?…
            Deal with it then….
            Look that you prefer to have a President that bend over to anyone…
            Well I like a President that stand up to anyone…
            By the way…. you may not like how I wright….. but in no moment you say that I’m lying… and proved…so..
            Again… Deal with it.!!

          13. Bill O'Neil says

            Snopes is considered a unreliable internet source. You will find other sources such as Daily Kos that confirms the court ruling that stations can lie. As for the Trump’s 1st EO, I should have said his first executive action, which was on his first day as president, Trump blocked an Obama administration policy that would have reduced the cost of mortgages for millions of home buyers. See USA Today Jan 21,2017. Trump claimed he saw thousands of muslims dancing in streets of New Jersey. Lie. He may have seen footage of the West Bank, not NJ. The police saw 3 men in a van in NJ celebrating and they were stopped on suspicion of explosives. The MSM free airtime for Trump I was referring to is all the free coverage they gave to covering his campaign rallies, much more than any other candidate. If Trump would show us his tax returns, (like the other candidates have for years), we might get some idea of his worth. I’m not relying on what Steve Forbes, a right wing billionaire, tells us. All former presidents (with the possible exception of Jimmy Carter) have gained in net worth after they leave office. As I recall, I believe Ronald Reagan picked up a 2 million dollar speaking fee in Japan right after he left office. It is against the law (Constitution) to do so actively while in office.

            The same policy that relaxed even more how to get a loan, and putting the pressure on case of default directly on FHA?..An FHA that was already bailed out in2013… with taxpayers money.
            The policy that was not in effect yet?…The policy that Obama announced in 01/09/2017 and signed the day after?…Interesting… for 8 years, he forgot the “little guys” and suddenly, with one foot out of the door, he decide to trow them a bone?…
            By the way, that was done by Obama, without any studies and analysis of repercussions … and 01/20 was the last day to do the repealing,before the changes took effect …

            “The MSM free airtime for Trump I was referring to is all the free coverage they gave to covering his campaign rallies, much more than any other candidate”

            What are you saying? … That MSM ruined Hillary with less free time when MSM followed her rallies?
            By the way … if MSM followed more trump rallies than Hillary’s … it was because he did more rallies than Hillary … and if no one forces them to do it … Why did they do it anyway?

            The Tax Returns…is a TRADITION since Richard Nixon in 1972 made his returns public before election day… No LEGAL obligation to do it…

            In my search about President Trump net worth, at international level ( England, Germany, France, South America..etc..) every one cite “according to Forbes”… but you don’t believe in Forbes….so..

            Yes is true what you say about Presidents have had gained in net worth after they leave office.

            But none of them, claimed to be broke when leaving the WH… and 20 years later they have a net worth of or about 120 millions dollars… after been flat broke…

            Damn, I will like to have the same opportunities to do the same.
            I don’t need 120 Mil… with only 2 Mil is enough…

            Eight men celebrating is not “thousands” like Trump said. Sorry! I hope you are not trying to tell me YOU saw thousands celebrating in the streets with your own eyes. If so this conversation is over.

          18. Amargomate says

            Absolutely no…. I didn’t see thousands … but they were celebrating …
            And if thousands like me, saw the same thing I did… thousands were celebrating…. Agree with you, that President Trump exaggerate on his commentary.

            I don’t think that he saw thousands, Maybe he took in consideration all the comments that everybody was saying at the time… Look to the links.. and I have many, many more of them.

            But, for me, ONE, only one celebrating, told me that we have a serious problem in the country… Very serious problem.
            And 16 years later, it got worse

            By the way, you have the link from Daily Kos… I would like to read it.

        Keep telling yourself that and maybe you will believe it.

        1. TexasCoyote1 says

          Oh, I believe it all right. I also believe the black players hatred for the white fans has been exposed for what it is. They don’t feel themselves a part of this country, so they are more than happy to “pee” on our President and disrespect our country.

          Well, IMHO, until the NFL becomes a whole lot whiter, I’m not interested in watching players who are more interested in their end zone dance than their pass patterns. I’m not interested in subsidizing a bunch of criminal athletes who don’t even try to hide their disdain for the country that allows them to earn the money they do for playing a game.

      Some years back Baseball had a shift and that sport has yet to recover. Maybe the NFL will invigorate that sport. But only if the baseball players avoid the knee display or staying in the dugouts for the anthem. Remember hat in hand, standing at attention, hand over the heart. Bozo pulled the just standing if that so small wonder the nation has a crisis. Our last leader set a lousy example of everything!

      1. Elaine says

        Ditto. There were several shots of ex-President Obama standing with his arms down during our national anthem. A poor example to our children and people. All others on stage stood with hands over their hearts. Obama bred this hatred for our country and its history. That’s where we are today because of his and his wife’s distortion of our country. The devil incarnate.

            If a republican first lady would have done something like that it would have probably to her husbands impeachment. Double standard with the democrats. Look Hillary still not prosecuted for criminal acts and the democrats letting there computers being hacked and Debbie Wasserman still walking around without being prosecuted. If it were a republican they would already be in jail.

          2. Robert Dostoevsky says

            Well why hasn’t all these prosecutions taken place yet? The Democrats are not in charge now!
            Just for your edification, the actions of a first lady are not grounds for impeachment.

            You got that right and Bannon is out to take those Elite Republicans all down. Stay tuned and don’t despair, he is going to get it done, we just have to follow his lead.

            Just what crime Would Obama be charged with. Please be specific, no YouTube rationale.

          8. MAHB001 says

            0bama was a traitor. That is a crime punishable by death.

            0bama was the enemy within….

            “How then shall we perform it?–At what point shall we expect the approach of danger? By what means shall we fortify against it?– Shall we expect some transatlantic military giant, to step the Ocean, and crush us at a blow? Never!–All the armies of Europe, Asia and Africa combined, with all the treasure of the earth (our own excepted) in their military chest; with a Buonaparte for a commander, could not by force, take a drink from the Ohio, or make a track on the Blue Ridge, in a trial of a thousand years.
            At what point then is the approach of danger to be expected? I answer, if it ever reach us, it must spring up amongst us. It cannot come from abroad. If destruction be our lot, we must ourselves be its author and finisher. As a nation of freemen, we must live through all time, or die by suicide.”

          9. Robert Dostoevsky says

            Yeah, I’m familiar with Lincoln but you never answered my question. You have joined the ranks of the “hang them all” gang. As usual, there is no reasonable explanation for the alleged treason.
            I’m looking forward to your next quote, perhaps something from Shakespeare.

          10. MAHB001 says

            blah blah blah… There are plenty of reasonable explanation for 0bama’s treason, but we can not force you to see them… You can not waken someone who pretends to be asleep….

            I have jointed the ranks of the trust no one gang. Their actions speak louder than their words…

          11. Robert Dostoevsky says

            Please help the uninformed by stating just one example of treason. Until then the only blah blah is your posts.

          12. MAHB001 says

            0bama delivered 400 Million in cash without going through the proper channels.

            0bama lied to the American people about Benghazi.

            0bama lied to the American People about 0bamacare.

            0bama colluded with Eric Holder in the Fast and Furious gun running scandal in an effort to push stricter gun control laws.

          13. Cobra212 says

            When any government official swears in their oath of office to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, and then does everything in their power to ignore and subvert it, that is treason. Obama repeatedly used the Federal Government to attack those who opposed his ideas (IRS, EPA, FDA, etc.). He lied to Congress, he lied to the American people, he ignored formal official requests for information, and then he subverted the investigation into Clinton’s treasonous acts as Sec of State, because he was party to same. Clinton was never going to be prosecuted for her email fiasco, because Obama sent and received email through the same server, passing classified information the same way, as Hillary. If Hillary had been prosecuted, Obama would have been drawn into the fray as well. My guess is that is why no one wants to pursue Hillary now, because it would require pursuit of a past U.S. President, something that would be a major embarrassment to the country in the eyes of the world. If you really need examples, you haven’t been paying much attention or you’ve only been listening to the liberal media. To me something as simple as the death of a U.S. citizen, on U.S. soil, killed by a gun that Obama and his minions gave to the cartels in Mexico, is sufficient to qualify as treason, because it was done without any concern about the welfare of the people he was responsible for protecting.

          14. Robert Dostoevsky says

            I hear your frustration and agree that Obama probably stretched the truth but I’m not sure anything was treasonous. Since the Hillary email mess occurred at the end of his second term In not sure if this is the treasonous acts you are saying he covered up or are there others.
            I’ve asked this question of others and haven’t gotten a reasonable response. If any of Obama’s actions were treasonous, then why did no one do anything?

          15. Ted Crawford says

            “Fast and Furious” and the resultant “Executive Privilege”, used to protect Eric Holder, and by extension, Obama himself, may not rise to the level of Treason, but malfeasance certainly comes to mind!

          16. SD of AZ says

          22. Robert Dostoevsky says

            Benghazi? After 13 hearings, 50 briefings and over 5,000 pages of documents, no blame was ever given to Obama for the deaths in Benghazi. Just for your information, the hearings were led by Republicans including T . Gowdy who was certainly no Obama fan.

          23. SD of AZ says

            Actions do have to follow words. Otherwise the words were a lie. And Bozo was the ultimate liar. Remember, “You can keep your doctor!”?

          24. chucky001 says

            True, but how about “everyone will be covered beautifully”? And yet Dolt45’s subsidy cuts will throw millions off of health coverage.

          25. SD of AZ says

            Are you referring to the current changes by Trump? Chucky001, if so, then you are quite correct. The bulk of the freeloaders will be discontinued but the truly indigent legal citizen’s will receive coverage as they previously did through the states and back to the old systems we will go. And we all know compared to Bozo’s insurance the old system was superior even in the health care for the indigent legal citizens. The Bozo insurance has proven healthcare via socialism is quite unsatisfactory and extremely expensive.

            The millions of free loaders you care about including the unvetted refugees, the illegal aliens, the not working freeloaders will have to look elsewhere for their coverage. The young healthy working class will not be picking up the tab for the bunch described. And the working middle class of all ages will not be footing that bill either.

            Sorry if that offends you, but we are not a socialist nation. We are a democratic republic. And the work ethic is still alive and well in this nation. If you are able to work you must support yourself. Do not expect your insurance, your food, your housing to be paid for from the public coffers. Government healthcare does not work, ask any Canadian crossing the US borders for their healthcare here in the US.

            And if this bothers you, then you are free to go where all those things are paid for by the government. I am sure you can find a country who will accept you and pay for all your necessities.

Obama is a Muslim communist who in the first place is an enemy to the constitution he constantly broke immigration laws apologized to our enemies, tried to tear this country down by forcing businesses out of the country and the list goes on and on he also on national TV I heard him tell illegal immigrants they could vote.

            Saul Alinsky”s Doctrine: 8 steps to topple a nation and create a socialist state
            BY IWB · OCTOBER 16, 2015

            1) Healthcare — Control healthcare and you control the people

            2) Poverty — Increase the Poverty level as high as possible, poor people are easier to control and will not fight back if you are providing everything for them to live.

            3) Debt — Increase the debt to an unsustainable level. That way you are able to increase taxes, and this will produce more poverty.

            4) Gun Control — Remove the ability to defend themselves from the Government. That way you are able to create a police state.

            5) Welfare — Take control of every aspect of their lives (Food, Housing, and Income).

            6) Education — Take control of what people read and listen to — take control of what children learn in school.

            7) Religion — Remove the belief in the God from the Government and schools.

            8) Class Warfare — Divide the people into the wealthy and the poor. This will cause more discontent and it will be easier to take (Tax) the wealthy with the support of the poor.

            Do you need anymore proof?

          29. chucky001 says

            The Obamacare health insurance was a move to turn the country to communism? Are you STUPID? Every other advanced nation has a single payer health system. They all enjoy longer life expectancies than the US, too.

            Would you accept Obama’s words?
            “The Warren court wasn’t that radical.” Even as a stand alone statement that is shocking. But he went on to explain why he believed that ridiculous statement:
            “It didn’t break free from the constraints that were placed by our founding fathers in the Constitution”! That, to anyone respecting the Constitution, particularly coming from a purported “Constitutional Scholar”,is nothing less than astonishing! Still he wasn’t finished explaining:
            “I intend to succeed where they failed” What he,essentially implied was that the Earl Warren Supreme Courts outrageous attack on the Constitution only accomplished limited damage to the Constitution. He fully intended to completely obliterate it, and fashion it to his own twisted liking!

          38. Robert Dostoevsky says

            Where are your transcripts (if you have any)? My college transcripts are not available unless I release them. Since Obama graduated with honors ( the honors are a public record) he had to have had the grades to support the honors!

          39. Ted Crawford says

            And that, somehow, explains why he’s spent so much money to keep them hidden?

          40. Robert Dostoevsky says

            How do you know what he spent money on? As I stated, my transcripts are my business as is everyone else’s their business.
            Why this recent interest in his transcripts, what are you looking for?

          41. Ted Crawford says

            His expenditures, to keep his records seal are a matter of public knowledge.
            The only entity interested in your records is perhaps a potential employer, which is the point here, we are the Presidents employers.
            The interest isn’t “recent” many attempts, since 2008, have been made to obtain them, and what is sought is information,
            Another point here, which makes them seem even more potentially germane, is what is he trying to hide ?

          42. Robert Dostoevsky says

            I’ve been employed by several major corporations including major aerospace companies. To date, no one has asked for my college transcripts.

          43. Ted Crawford says

            As I said, “perhaps”. What you or I did or do is, relative to the world writ large, unimportant. That is not the case with a President.

And we have many enemies within these days who are useful tools for the real enemy, those like Soros who think they are omnipotent. Disgustingly evil man!

            The Pope went on a vacation for a few days to visit the rugged mountains of Alaska.

            Driving along near a campground, he heard a frantic commotion at the edge of the woods.

            He saw a helpless man wearing shorts, sandals, a ‘Vote for Hillary’ hat and a ‘Save the Trees’ shirt. The man was screaming and struggling frantically, thrashing all about, trying to free himself from the grasp of a 10-foot grizzly bear.

            As the Pope watched in horror, a group of loggers wearing ‘Go Trump’ shirts came running up. One quickly fired a .44 magnum slug right into the bear’s chest. The two other men pulled the semiconscious Democrat from the bear’s grasp.

            Then using baseball bats, the three loggers finished off the bear. Two of the men dragged the dead grizzly onto the bed of their pickup truck while the other tenderly placed the injured ‘ I’m with her ‘ supporter onto the back seat.

            As they began to leave, the Pope summoned all of the workers over to him. “I give you my blessing for your brave actions!” he proudly proclaimed, placing his hand onto each man’s head.

            “I had heard there was bitter hatred between Republican loggers and Democratic environmental activists. But now I’ve seen with my own eyes that this is not true.”

            As the Pope drove away, one logger asked his buddies, “Who was that guy?”

            “Dude, that was the Pope,” another replied. “He’s in direct contact with Heaven and has access to all wisdom.”

            “Well,” the logger said, “he may have access to all wisdom, but he don’t know squat about bear hunting. By the way, is the bait still alive or do we need to go back to California and get another one?”

            Robbie, for your information President Obama committed dozens of high crimes and misdemeanors and got away with it because our spineless Congress did nothing while the White House rubber stamped run away borrowing and spending. President Obama should have been impeached back in ’09.
            I was going to say “not our fault” but I would have been wrong.
            SHIT!

          53. Robert Dostoevsky says

            High crimes and treason seems to be a big theme without any supporting evidence. I keep asking for examples but nothing. I didn’t like many of his executive directives but I find nothing treasonous about them. What high crimes?? Many complaints but not one example.

          54. Dale P Patterson says

            Bobs, I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Google “75 Times Obama Broke the Law”, read it, come back and have an intelligent discussion. Read it and then read as much as you can to refute it. Then come back for your spanking.

          55. Robert Dostoevsky says

            I looked at the site(s) you recommended, did you? A great many of the allegations were absolute untruths, some were clever in their attempt to make his actions appear illegal. If the continuation of Bush actions are grounds for impeachment as has been suggested, then where were the calls for Bush’s impeachment ?

          56. Dale P Patterson says

            Bob, you are full of shit you butt ugly fool. Obviously rejecting facts is what the leftist liars and their jack booted thugs in the antifa movement do best as they try to buttress the crumbling legacy of their anti American leader and god President Obama.
            The facts speak for themselves and the clincher is “as soon as President Trump was elected the Democrats, liberals, progressives, leftist, snowflakes were VIOLENTLY protesting and screaming for his impeachment “.
            Perhaps you can’t remember back 10 months, much less 7 years, Bob, but I and my fellow Americans with a LICK of intelligence and integrity can recall many of “44s” high crimes and misdemeanors and anyone with a working brain can tell you that the reason President Obama wasn’t impeached was he was protected by the RINO’S, Democrats, and cowards (too afraid to appear racist).
            As for you and your ilk, you can keep hugging and sharing your best crayon pictures and play-doe figurines while you reminisce on all the good things President Obama has done for you . . . that should only take 10 seconds.

          57. Robert Dostoevsky says

            I find it amusing that you of all people would call someone butt ugly. Even more amusing is that you didn’t even ask what items I found to be untrue. Had you bothered to investigate instead of blindly believing you would be better informed. However; you, like many others, choose to believe anything negative about Obama. Your belief in everything negative is an example of a closed mind….not to mention a poor attempt to hide bigotry.
            No need to respond.

          58. Dale P Patterson says

            Bob, I find it amusing that you haven’t posted a mug shot with your cheap statements. What’s wrong are you that fugly or is your sack empty, bitch?
            As far as what you found untrue isn’t as interesting as to what you found TO BE TRUE! However if you stated “something” it would have been a start, instead you played the bigotry card on me and so many others that YOU think are wrong.
            But Bob (down and do it again), let’s try something really different. You think I’m a bigot? I ask you, “What did President Obama do to help people of race in America receive fair, equal, and respectful treatment from law enforcement?” What was Hillary Clinton going to do improve their lives? What has President Trump done to make the lives of African Americans worse?
            You claim I’m close minded, enlightene me. But if your going to respond leave you victimhood off the site, address points that are valid concerning President Obama’s wrongdoings and present established facts proving me wrong.
            There is a need to respond, on your part, but if you don’t everyone will understand, dumb ass.

          59. Robert Dostoevsky says

            You were the one that told me to read the “75 times Obama broke the law” are you now saying that all 75 aren’t true? That’s the impression you gave when you wanted to know which I found to be true. There are several true statements but they don’t rise to the level of breaking the law.

          60. Scuttlebutt says

            Robert, were you NOT alive during the Obama terms? If you were, then you are just someone wanting to start crap in the USA. Why not trying to become a Patriot & love the best Country in the world, besides tearing it down—like cry baby Democrats are doing, because Hillary lost? This IS the USA buster. Love it or leave it. If you don’t love the USA, feel free to leave—you & yours will NOT be missed. Bitching about Trump, since his election,is all the Dem’s have done & “we the people” are sick of it. What a damned cry baby you are.

          61. Robert Dostoevsky says

            I love my country and served honorably in the military.Yes I was alive during Obama’s two terms although I did not vote for him.
            My questions have been about treasonous accusations which so far have been mainly complaints and questions about the legality of some of his actions.
            If all the accusations being made today are true then why didn’t the Republicans in congress do something about it at the time?

          65. Robert Dostoevsky says

            What lie about Benghazi?
            What did he have to do with internal IRS activities?
            Creation of another nuclear capable nation?

            Even if you could make a case for any of these things, how do they qualify for treason?

          66. corniche says

            Bob: Based upon your response, you r simply not bright enough to engage in any sort of discussion regarding the issues I mentioned. Be Well and have a good day.

          67. Robert Dostoevsky says

            Where is the treason?

          68. SD of AZ says

            Geez, no one is as dumb as you pretend Robert. I am blocking you, too much of a liar to even address or read or pay attention to. Disgusting libturd!

          69. Robert Dostoevsky says

            Blocking someone who asks questions suggests you either have no answer or only want to make statements without having to support them.

          71. Robert Dostoevsky says

            What nuclear capable nation? Do you mean nuclear weapons or nuclear anything?
            A really screwed up gun tracking program may have been stupid but it was not Obama’s idea.
            Lying about Benghazi is an interesting topic. While the story changed as to the cause, the CIA still thought the video was the cause of the initial assult followed up by an Al-Qaeda massive attack.

            I asked how any of the items you mentioned could be treasonous, you never answered this question.

          72. MAHB001 says

            Fast and Furious WAS 0bama’s idea. It was a lie and deceiving to pin it on the Bush administration. Bush’s gun running program was shut down before they left office.

            AND Hillary wrote an EMAIL the night of Benghazi attacks saying that the it was an ATTACK, not a reaction to a YT video…. Thanks WIKILEAKS…. The truth came out on that one. BTW, that means that 0bama was LYING all the way to the UN Speech…..

            Treason:

            noun
            the crime of betraying one’s country, especially by attempting to kill the sovereign or overthrow the government:
            Do you think that lying to the American People is betrayal? I do.

          73. Robert Dostoevsky says

            Fast and Furious was not Obama’s idea but since it happened during his administration then he must be blamed: however, there is no treason.
            Obama didn’t make the speech to the UN, the Ambassador did. As I mentioned, the narrative changed many times and the CIA still thinks the beginning of the attack was a result of the video. No true treason here. If there was anything treasonous don’t you think Gowdy would have been all over it?
            Your opinion of betrayal is your opinion.
            I keep asking; if there was actual treason do you honestly think no one would have pursued an indictment? Especially Senator Cruz.

          74. MAHB001 says

            0bama and his administration never did anything without being able to point a finger at someone else tor blame if it went wrong. 0bama was out on the stump giving speeches for tighter gun control right up until Fast and Furious was exposed for what it was. Purposefully allowing guns to be smuggled into Mexico for the sole purpose of having those guns used in crimes over there (murders included) just so that 0bama could use that crisis to push for tighter gun controls in the US is not only immoral it is a crime. offense #1.

            Listening to your excuses for 0bama makes me believe that 0bama was not accountable for anything… And to think the likes of you made him president…

            Now you say that 0bama didn’t write the speech, he just read it…. BS. Even if that were the case, both him and Hillary KNEW that the attack was not caused by a YT video within hours of the attack, REGARDLESS OF WHAT THE NARRATIVE WAS…. (narrative being lies)

            So ANYBODY with a shred of integrity would have read that speech during rehearsal and said, I can’t say that, because it is not true…. Are you saying 0bama was too stupid to realize that he was lying??? Now that isn’t even plausible…. Lying to the American People is treason.

            0bama and his administration no longer deserve the benefit of doubt. And neither do you because you still make excuses for him.

          75. Robert Dostoevsky says

            First, and most importantly, I never voted for Obama, I’ve voted Republican most of my adult life. Secondly, I said the Ambassador to the U.N. gave the speech at the U.N., not the president! I’m not sure what speech you’re referring to.
            I’ve read the congressional reports on Benghazi and there certainly was no clear explanation of what caused the attack.
            Lastly, you said I’m making excuses for the Obama administration but I never did that. I did try to keep the discussion about Obama to one based on fact and not opinion .
            I think we’ve exhausted this subject so I am finished.

          76. MAHB001 says

            It is very heartening that you did not vote for 0bama. God Bless you for that.

            https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q_ijBilki-I

            At 14:25 0bama repeats his lie about the violence being caused by a video. This comment was made by 0bama about two weeks after the Benghazi attack. His comments mean he is utterly stupid or lying, and 0bama is not stupid.

            Do you really believe in congress anymore? I don’t, and I would actually expect Congress to cover up for the Elites like 0bama.

            There is also a news conference where 0bama attempts to clarify his timeline on what he knew and when he knew it. (I will find it if you like) In that conference, 0bama declared that he KNEW and was convinced that Benghazi was a full blown terrorist attack about 4 days in. Given that he knew about 4 days in, and gave this speech a full week later…. That kind of cements it.

            I assume that most people know this stuff these days and those that don’t accept it now, probably never will. My apologies if that assumption is wrong.
            The facts are in, 0bama lied about Benghazi..

          77. SD of AZ says

            That implicated his DOJ too. Good point. And why Holder was gone before Bozo.

          78. Tammy Brim Houtchens says

            Try treason. Sending weapons to Isis. How about murder Benghazi. That’s just a small taste if his crimes wire tapping and so much more , he should hang for his crimes.

            I have spent years researching the Obama story. http://www.terribletruth.marthatrowbridgeradio.org
            has been out there for years and hacked 24/7 to cover the truth.
            Obama’s mother was Elizabeth Ann Newman who had an affair with Malcolm X
            in 1960 before his murder. Newman is one of the guarded secrets of the
            Obama family ruse. She was in The Weather Underground with Bill Ayers in
            the 1960’s and bombed the Washington Navy Yard Computer Building and
            the Pentagon and was on the FBI Most Wanted List for years. She operated
            under the alias “Ann Duke” in the Underground for years and WAS and IS a
            Domestic Terrorist and eventually was put in Federal Prison. She was
            arrested and years later illegally released by Black Muslim Eric “Gun
            Felon” Holder (a gun felon in Columbia Law School) simultaneously with
            Bill Ayers wife “Bernadette Dorn” who was in the notorious Charlie
            Manson Murder Gang when Holder illegally installed a level 1 Judge in a
            level 3 Judges position to falsify the release of both woman. Elizabeth
            Ann Newman, Obama’s real mother, was a child of Dr. Fred “Delano” Newman
            of the Bronx and Jackie Salit who had two children, Elizabeth and
            David. They divorced in 1967, both were “Community Organizers” of
            Communist/Socialist propaganda and Saul Alinsky students as was Hillary.
            Ayers wrote the book “Dreams Of My Father” as a decoy to keep citizens
            away from the truth of Obama’s lineage, a Domestic Terrorist Mother and a
            radical Black Muslim father. Orly Taitz had a copy of Obama’s Long Form
            COB out there for years. After the affair, the mother Elizabeth took
            the pregnancy to Coast Province General Hospital in Mombasa, Kenya and
            then on to Hawaii where she married Soetoro. They eventually took young
            Obama to Indonesia to Jakarta’s Muslim Boy Prep School where he was for 8
            years. In order for Obama to attend that school as an adopted student
            child, by Indonesian Constitutional Law, Obama had to become a citizen
            of Indonesia. Obama was born of two U.S. Citizen Parents, even though out of wedlock and the U.S. he still was “natural born” under
            Constitutional Law BUT to be POTUS you CANNOT be a DUAL CITIZEN which he
            became. Now the DNC had a problem for the boy wonder! So, along come
            old Joe “Shotgun” Biden, a sing song attorney, who decided to get Obama
            in the CIA as a Farsi Interpreter from 1981 to 1984 to cover up any ills
            from being a dual citizen that wants to run for POTUS. Then on to the
            U.S. in 1984, Obama applied for a foreign student scholarship, then on
            to Chicago where he mysteriously became a Senator. Six American
            Veterans were illegally imprisoned by DNC Operatives over 8 years that
            realized Obama was illegal as POTUS and that criminal intent was the
            agenda, they were imprisoned to keep their mouths shut. Fitzpatrick-Navy
            (who is still rotting in a Tennessee prison), Huff-Navy, Butler-Navy
            SEAL, Bennett-Army, Wood-Army, Lakin-Air Force 1 Flight Surgeon. Trump
            is our new POTUS and he has been informed about what has been done and
            who was involved. Our Veterans and Military have been used as pawns and
            Benghazi, Fast and Furious, Extortion 17 will not be forgotten. There
            will be further investigations and the DNC members that have murdered,
            lied and stolen Trillions from their positions are on notice. They have
            committed High Treason, Perjury, Election Fraud, Murder, Sabotage,
            Misprision Of Felony, Constitutional Fraud and have damaged millions of
            Americans, Veterans, Elderly, Youth and the Future Of America. America’s
            Veterans will be demanding, vigilant and unrelenting in prosecuting and
            seeking imprisonment of all DNC criminals as they are revealed. Donald
            Trump knows many who are responsible and he has the support of all the
            conservative Veterans, citizens and families who were damaged or lost
            loved ones caused by this criminal cabal. We will seek out those who are
            responsible and hiding under DNC cover and any and all in other
            departments of government. Comey is on the HSBC bank board that is in
            with The Clinton Foundation money scam. The DNC has corrupted every
            Federal Agency in the U.S. inventory including many areas in our
            Military. Our wars are internal now in the U.S. and must be won to
            remove all the criminal elements before America can normalize and
            prosecute crime and criminals and prosecute people in the system and on
            the street and clean the sewage out of our system.

          80. Robert Dostoevsky says

            I laughed out-loud at your funny story and then I realized you were serious. I haven’t seen this much bullshit in one place since I visited the Ft. Worth stock-yards many years ago. I was tempted to start refuting some of your claims but that would just be playing into your asinine game.

          81. Jim Tuggle says

            no, but her actions reflect on the character of the man

          82. Robert Dostoevsky says

            A man’s character has nothing to do his wife’s actions.

          83. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

            True, although the democRATs would use any pretense if they thought some of their shiit might stick on the wall.

          84. Kevin Timmons says

            The actions of that first lady on that day were deplorable at the very least. I will never forget the video of her face during the anthem. Look it up!! If that doesn’t make you want to puke then you are an extreme Liberal. She openly hated her country.! Where is the outrage??

          87. Ted Crawford says

            I can’t speak for Mr. Sessions, in fact I’m not sure the timid little soul can even speak for himself, but, from my perspective the Justice Department. has far more important issues to address than the prosecution of a disgraced, has been such as Hillary.
            With respect to Obama, he, or at least Valerie , is as devious as he, actually,they, are corrupt ! Knowing something to be true, and proving it, is often as they say,”A horse of a different color”. Statements like ; “The Police acted stupidly”, “if I had a son”, “…I can be more flexible after the election” coupled with his admission in his books that he preferred Foreigners, radical, militant Feminists, and Marxist Professors are clear indicators, but far from proof!

          92. Lilipatch says

            Yes, I remember that. Michelle’s exact words, “All this fuss over a damn flag.” We have to work very hard to never allow the democrats to win again and to make sure that a republican is not a Rino.

          93. Reasoned thinker says

            Lilipatch — Thanks to you, as well, for your additional input on my question.

          94. Terry says

            It was on a Veterans Day and she said ” all of this for a damned flag ” and not to forget the ” For the first time in her life I’m proud to be an American ” crack .

          95. ralph Langer says

            Michelle OBAMA HATES WHITE PEOPLE. I AS well as some Dems I know also agreed after reading her 100+ pages of her college thesis which was removed from the internet yrs ago.

          96. Reasoned thinker says

            ralph Langer — I wonder if there is any way to actually “revive” that college thesis . . . i.e., to get it back up on the internet?

          97. Reasoned thinker says

            Terry — Thanks to you for the added input to my question . . . I had not heard M.O’s comments back then. Also, I DO remember M.O’s gaffe about ” . . . proud to be an American.” What a dumb statement to make (!!!), eh?

          98. disqus_htVNWSBEmM says

            Thanks for backing me up.

          99. Reasoned thinker says

            disqus_htVNWSBEmM — I’ve heard about that incident where Michelle O. had said that, but I have never actually seen the clip (or heard the audio). That matter, in my opinion, should be brought up again (and again) right now, while people are talking about the NFL, etc., etc. Is there any chance you can identify just when and where M.Obama. was caught doing this? If so, please post. Thanks.

          100. disqus_htVNWSBEmM says

            I saw it on iTunes l think. It’s been a couple of years or so.
            She leaned over and asked Obama ” why are they making such a fuss over a damn flag?”

          101. Reasoned thinker says

          Well, the old saying goes, “For those who fight for it, Freedom has a flavor that the “PROTECTED” shall never taste !” I noticed so much pure ignorance, stupidity, and total disrespect [behind my back — but NEVER to my face…LOL]. I spent 6 months in Germany –U.S. ARMY Aviation, and then 2 long years in Vietnam: 68-70, Helicopter ‘door gunner’ — and so I never took too much guff from anyone who disrespected the Flag or Constitution. I also write a humble Blog: TOM’S JOURNAL. My Email: tschuckman@aol.com — “Iron sharpens Iron.” —Proverbs 27: 17.

          1. William Glass says

            Thank you for your service and that saying. I shamefully have to admit that I have never heard it before. It is right up there with “Those who would sacrifice an essential liberty for a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety”.

        4. Heidi Kuhl says

          And, how about when B.O. refused to wear our flag on his lapel?

        5. Maybe says

          Excellent! It was so clear that his 2nd term was an anti white pro black Muslim term. And when Hillary said she would continue Obama’s agenda she shot herself in the foot! She gets it now but soft pedals it in her book by claiming whites felt left out, but of course she can’t say what I said about his 2nd term because obama will play that onerous race card trick.

          NFL will lose this PR ploy and blacks will lose their obvious reverse racist gig with their anti flag ritual. In closing where is Al Sharpass – no press in some time now – bet Trump told him his free ride with Opuke over wrt IRS if he he keeps jiving in public.

        6. McFerguson says

          Now, we’re talkin’! And, frankly, I’m damn tired of these primadonna millionaires pushing their warrior justice activities on my time and my dime. I’m with the Trumpster on this issue, 100 percent. If one cannot stand and represent the nation decently during the playing of the National Anthem, then he doesn’t play the game. And if he doesn’t play, he doesn’t get paid. How about it, Commissioner? Grow a pair…

        7. Francis VanDevender says

          That’s because he is a Muslim no other reason he and his group are who is stirring up this mess,they want a civil war so he can take over the co and make it Muslim.

        The NBA has been taking notice. My thought is that they would rather keep their jobs. We shall see.

        1. barnjoer says

          Ever wonder just what the N stands for in the NFL and NBA??

          1. Barbara says

            No. Are you thinking you’ll cleverly rewrite it? This is the sort of inflammatory talk that causes the problems. It stands for National and I like it that way.

          2. barnjoer says

            Can tell where your mind is I was thinking of the NOTHING F€£king League!
            Shame on you.

          3. Barbara says

            Nope. You can’t because all I asked was if you were planning to cleverly rewrite it and that I liked it being National. And your name for the league isn’t too clever anyway.

          4. westnlas says

            Too bad the league doesn’t consider themselves part of the nation though.
            F the NFL

          5. barnjoer says

            RUSH: Try this headline from the Washington Times: “NFL Players’ Union Teamed Up With Soros to Fund Leftist Advocacy Groups.” Folks, do not ever doubt me. When this whole protest the anthem thing began, I told you that left-wing activist groups were behind it, that they were running the players on this. It was how you get the players to take action that is actually harming the NFL when the players think that they are acting in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick in protesting the cops.
            That’s not what they were doing. They were inflicting damage on the NFL. And even before its feud over the national anthem with Trump, even before that, the NFL Players Association — it’s a union — wasn’t on the same political team as many of its fans, judging from its contributions to leftist — what is the players union doing donating money to leftist activist groups? “Well, Rush it’s a union. They can donate to whoever.” I understand that.
            It’s not the Service Employees International Union we’re talking about here. It’s not the Teamsters. What in the world are players’ money going to this stuff for? “Tax documents released by 2ndVote –” that’s a group “– show the NFLPA donated $5,000 in 2015 to the Center for Community Change Action, a group active in the anti-Trump resistance and bankrolled by a host of liberal foundations, including top Democratic donor George Soros’s Foundation for Open Society.
            A member of the AFL-CIO, the NFLPA also contributed in 2013 and 2015 to Working America, the AFL-CIO’s community affiliate, which Open Secrets said spent $1 million in 2016 to defeat Trump.”
            The NFLPA, long before this stuff even began, was being guided by George Soros and donating to uber-leftist causes. Now, let me tell you what this illustrates. I have mentioned to you John O’Sullivan, the former editor of National Review and a close confidant of Lady Margaret Thatcher. John O’Sullivan had when he called the First Law. It’s this. Any institution that is not explicitly conservative will become liberal over time. And it is dead-on right.
            If on an organization of people, I don’t care where it is, in the firehouse, in a radio or TV station, in any office building, if that group is not actively conservative, it will be subsumed by liberalism. Whether it wants to be or not, whether it’s aware that it’s happening or not. And all of this is happening, by the way, all of this left-wing activism of the players association was happening long before the coming of on Trump. And so Trump comes along and the anthem protest come along, I wonder what role George Soros and his buds had with this in the first place, maybe. Kaepernick ended up providing a very convenient launch pad for what they intended to do anyway.
            But O’Sullivan’s First Law: Any institution that’s not explicitly and actively every day right-wing will become left-wing over time. Now, this story — I don’t know — the NFL players union teaming up with George Soros to fund leftist advocacy groups, if this becomes widely known, this is gonna push even more NFL fans to turn off the TV. This is not what they want to know. They don’t want to look at a bunch of guys playing football on Sunday afternoon and see a bunch of activists supporting left-wing causes. That’s not why they’re watching. It’s not what’s gonna keep them glued to the TV screen. That’s why we’re only hearing about it now.
            The NFLPA, the players union, not been bragging about this, they’ve not been public about it, but it’s now been discovered by people that investigate various organizations, human rights, civil rights, whatever, and find out where their money goes, to whom it is being donated. I mean, we’re talking left-wing activist union politics here. And football fans who are spending money one way or another in the NFL are indirectly funding this. And when they find out about it, they’re not going to be happy.
            And then this, Ellicott City, Maryland: “Football’s Decline Has Some High Schools Disbanding Teams.” This is a long story pointing out the horrors of football. That’s what this story is. It runs at the AP, Associated Press, and the story details all of the things that can happen to people who play football, all of the bad things, the brain injuries, the knee injuries, the getting beat up every day in practice, hanging around with a bunch of reprobate coaches making you do things that your body is not intended to do. That’s what this story details.
            And then it explains after all of that why so many parents are not letting their kids play football and then goes on to describe and detail the number of schools, middle schools and high schools that are disbanding football teams, which you’re not hearing about much, but is happening. And if it keeps up — it’s not a crisis point now, but if this keeps up, if they keep making movies about how football is deadly and leads to suicide and if the sports Drive-By Media keeps harping on things like this and the reprobate tactics of the players and this kind of stuff, you’re gonna have more and more parents keep their kids out of it.
            And then the feeder system dies. And that’s as bad as advertisers pulling out. I mean, this is a long ways away, maybe, but this is how college football, the NFL, wither away. No players. Now, for many in America, professional sports, the NFL, the NBA, is a way out. It’s a way out of the hood. It’s a way out of poverty. It’s a way out of hopelessness. What if these opportunities are removed? What if they’re not there? This story is about high-income Northeastern school districts, which are now considering canceling football programs because it’s too dangerous, and even the kids are now slowly and surely becoming afraid to play the game because of what they’re seeing and what they are reading.
            This problem has so many tentacles woven deeply into the fabric of the entire sport, and they are all serving to unravel the foundation for football. And it’s happening right in front of our eyes. And the amazing thing is that the football industry seems to be helping it along by trying to buy goodwill with the people who are leveling all of this criticism at it.

          6. Scuttlebutt says

            Barbara, I agree with you’re loving our Country. BUT having a sense of humor is also good. NOT all sentences, have that, but I think you may like to re-read it with that in mind. I am a Vietnam Vet, Patriot & have spent my time in real war. Unlike the NFL players, that don’t know the meaning of Patriot, nor real war. They play a children’s game for millions of our dollars & expect us, to like their spitting in American’s faces on TV? I don’t think so:(:(:(:(

          7. bgardock@concentric.net says

            Good One!!

            NO, I have eyes.

      3. William Von Huben says

        One minute to stand and honor our dead and injured servicemen and woman and honor our country which is the greatest in the world. If these high paid morons cannot see that I wish they would all move to Cuba and play football there for maybe twenty dollars a month.

      4. Lilly Putney says

        Used to never miss a game. Then they went on strike just as the series was to start and I haven’t watched them since that day.

      5. wayne g dearry says

        Staying in the dugout won’t appease me.

      6. MAHB001 says

        I remember the Baseball boycotts, that was when I quit supporting baseball.

        These NFL protest were far worse, and disrespectful to the American people. I pray that the People will see just how hypocritical and corrosive the Left has become. I hope the destruction goes all the way to the source… The Left.

      7. justanagent says

        I think we can survive without the NFL. Until Roger Goodell is fired anything done to atone will be too little too late. Let the league die before the big money corruption spreads any further.

        1. curmudgeon VN Veteran says

          Goodell really paid $34 million a year?

          1. justanagent says

            As Bathhouse Barry once said, I think at a certain point you’ve made enough money. Is anyone really worth that much?

      8. Kevin says

        Yeah, they (Baseball) went on strike! The poor guys wanted millions more! Took me 15 years to even begin to like it again. People are tired of rich athletes playing what ever card it takes to get more millions. Earn it the old fashioned way.
        Liberals love this shit and conservatives hate it, and liberals. Ain’t it great?

        1. SD of AZ says

          Amazing and I have asked this question before, when is enough enough? I seems even for the jocks this is the eternal problem. More is always what they strive for and eventually they do not care how they get it. And with this current batch in the NFL, they are just following and joining with no real understanding. I doubt they even understand the arrogance they have displayed nor an understanding of the real purpose of standing with their hand over their heart, hat in hand. They are pampered neanderthals at best.

        2. Scuttlebutt says

          Couldn’t have said it better. I have been following other posts, like this one, for weeks now. In every one of these posts, Republican’s are out voting the Democrats by hundreds of points. It has been a true joy, to know that America is standing up for the best Country in the World, the United States of America. I am also an active member of two Veteran groups. One is just Veterans & the other is Vietnam Combat Veterans only. Every last one of these men are on the side I am on. Love the USA or get the hell out & find another Country they like better. Just name the “Veterans” of any conflict, that are also Veterans playing in the NFL or NBA—who have obviously taken the side they have & see how many American Citizens stand with them. It speaks for itself.

      9. ernldo says

        I left baseball for good following the last strike. Haven’t watched an inning live or on TV since. Football is now off my list as well. I have more valuable free time…

      10. wayne g dearry says

        Sorry pal staying in the dugout doesn’t cut it either. You either stand or get out of the park–you don’t work for me.

    2. William Von Huben says

      The governor of California along with the democrats have wrecked the greatest state in the union. They have taxed, regulate and allowed illegals to flood the state costing the tax payers billions and what do they get in return more taxes more regulations. Tax payers you better wake up the lousy stupid democrats do not give a dam about you they are looking to never loose an election with all the illegals voting. I am pushing for voter ID on federal elections because California is lost. Also asking for any illegals caught voting to be immediately deported. This might save the country.

      1. Stanley Chapman says

        Yes California needs voter ID
        Now not later. We also need to throw out the current state
        Elected officials

      2. Barbara says

        I suggest the INS request to inspect the voters IDs in California

        1. Scuttlebutt says

          NOT going to happen:(:(:( California would loose all of their voters:)

      3. westnlas says

        As ex Californians, my wife (native born Californian) says there is just no way to pay for all the illegal immigrants on welfare. Their healthcare alone is over the moon. Since the taxes must be continually increased on those able to pay, business flees the state in droves. The road to it’s demise is of it’s own creation.

        1. Darren Rusty says

          The best thing about your post is that you and your wife are EX Californians. Life for you and your family will be better now. How will you ever exist without Jerry Brown and his bag of tax hikes? It’s gonna be tough man. He should be governor of Texas … here, we shoot first and ask questions … ummm … never.

          1. Scuttlebutt says

            Darren, I love this post the best today. I am also a born Texan & still live here. I have traveled all over the USA, in an RV, for around ten years. We visited every last state, including Hawaii. It just amazes me personally, how others, from other States, can continue to NOT see what is wrong with America. It is so real to me & I will never leave this State, to live anywhere else. We are now getting people from the North, that come here, because they are fed up with the way their state was being run. Not one of these people that I know personally, would ever admit, that they would love to go back where they came from. Say’s a lot doesn’t it?

        2. gotabgood says

          Care to share that website with me… about the cost of illegals and them not paying taxes. Taxes you know are payroll deducted and if they are illegal they can not file a return… but I am especially interested in the businesses leaving in “droves”..

        3. Scuttlebutt says

          AND, they seem to be too stupid to understand, why this is happening????? It has to be the air/water or something that makes them so dim:(:(:(

          1. disqus_htVNWSBEmM says

            Maybe they are stupid. Stupid does as stupid is.

      4. Robert D says

        ..and California’s stupid govenor just made the WHOLE STATE a sanctuary state. It’s over for us here.

      5. MAHB001 says

        The Governor of CA just signed a law that reduces a person with HIV having sex without disclosing that fact to a misdemeanor. The law also allows HIV carriers to give blood without disclosing the fact, and it is now illegal for the healthcare people to ask….

        If you are traveling in CA and need blood, I suggest you bring your own.

    3. Skip says

      The passing of NFL will benefit families who instead of watching football, they will spend their time doing things together like in the good old days before TV and other social distractions.

      1. MAHB001 says

        I heard a guy on the radio today that said just that. He was an avid football fan and this last weekend he turned it off, and played with his kids…..

        He said he wont turn it back on even if they pay him.

        1. Darren Rusty says

          Wow! Powerful stuff. And his kids will grow up knowing this and learn what happens when you’re a total loser. Speaking of losers …

          Forward this on to NFL commish Roger GoodForNothing and make sure he’s aware of what HE has allowed to happen.

          Yesterday, he started to backpedal all of this and make a rule that all players must stand and honor the flag and the anthem. Done quietly, but this should have been done months ago when KaperDick started all of this. But he didn’t do it. This wouldn’t have been politically correct, you see.

          Now that major sponsors are threatening to pull their ads, PC goes right out the window and we’re now in the biz of wrapping some rules around all of this. Laughable! Money rules and when the bank pulls the strings, these greedy ass bastards listen. But, I think it might be too late for people to fall back into the easychair and watch a NFL game on Sunday afternoon.

          1. MAHB001 says

            That dude on the radio had a powerful message. One that we could all learn from. Turn the TV off, and interact with the people you love.

          2. Scuttlebutt says

            Agree, totally Darren. I also now have a list of all NFL sponsors, that fund these so called players. This list is now going around the internet. Check it out. It is ALL about the money, I guarantee it:) Can you spell Boycott?

      LMFAO

        I left in 1973 and never regretted it. Southern California was still basically Conservative back then. Los Angeles, Berkeley and San Fran Sicko were still armpits even back then.

      You’re about as American as Fidel Castro.

      1. Amargomate says

        But , what can you expect from a COMMUNIST….TROLL…
        Is the only thing they have… insulting… degrading…. never a fact… never the truth…
        They are so stupids, they can realize if America was like they try to portray it is….
        they will be dead or missing, on a question of hours… Idiots like this, think that the anonymity of internet protect them, and they keep leaving a digital finger print all over…
        This brainless communists, better start praying that America never become what they say it is…. They will be the first to taste it…

        1. Stikit says

          They are brainwashed simple minded saps. They are so twisted that its impossible to communicate with them. Closed minded, self righteous, idiots.

    3. Jean Franklynn says

      yes a very public death so all can see

    4. westnlas says

      Sure save a lot of battered brains, although it may be far too late for today’s players

  7. Jere Crouse says

    That is what happens when you get political. I will only watch Packer games.

  8. Charles Wolfe jr says

    I stopped watching NFL games 2 weeks ago & will not watch until they make a public apology.

    1. comanchewill says

      me too Charles

    2. ernldo says

      I’m done watching for good. An apology will be faked.

      1. worn out 123 says

        Ditto.

      2. richard says

        right you are, i see where colon caperdick said he would now stand if he was able to find a new team……what a phony,

        1. Mike says

          He has denied that report completely and said he would not stand for the National anthem if he was signed.

    3. Amargomate says

      Charles, I’m with ernido…
      An apology will be fake, and forced on them by the owners… Owners failed to do their jobs from the very beginning…Now everybody will pay the price….I’m done with NFL… for good….

      1. Michael Dennewitz says

        I stopped watching TV over 10 years ago. Honestly! I was so damned fed up that I physically walked out back, big screen in hand, and THREW THE SUCKER INTO THE CANAL!!😁 Have I missed anything?😁?

        1. worn out 123 says

          This presidents wife is georgous! Otherwise, not much at all. I only know that because I have a laptop. Sold my two flat screen tvs for a grand total of $40 to prevent myself from kicking a hole in it. The “news” was gawd-awful.

          1. Mathew Molk says

            The looks on the faces of all the MSM last election light when they realized they were not going to be attending the cackling witch’s coronation was priceless. I wish I would have tapped it. The best ting that was on TV in a decade.

      2. hangem'high says

        I stop watching it the first time KapnoDick took his first knee,

        Now all I got to do is torch all this NFL merchandize!

        1. Amargomate says

          Don’t do it!!!… use it as rags to wash you car, take a picture and posted on social media….
          You destroy it, and you lose you money.
          Use it to wash the car or anything else that suit you, posted, and you are helping the cause… Just an idea…

          1. hangem'high says

            I respect my cars to much to use NFL rags on ‘em, but if I torch them it’s a clean break.

            https://youtu.be/BerJdS2VJhA

            As for the card collection it might be hard at first, but I figure after I light the first hundred dollar bill the second and third will get easer?

          2. Amargomate says

            Hey hangem… was just an idea…
            About the cards…. you can sell them to any of the NFL defenders….I’m sure they will pay good money for them…
            I don’t know…. maybe is the Capitalist on me, that hate to lose money…for jerks like them…
            Sorry for the idea…

          3. hangem'high says

            I thought about that a many times, but then decided it’d be more gratifying to destroy their image instead of letting some anti-American sociopath acquire an image of a fool. Beside I bet their value is swirling down the toilet also?

          4. Amargomate says

            Now that I think about it…you are right…
            I think the value is on the toilet….sorry….

          5. Mathew Molk says

            I know something to wipe, (not wash) with it…..But why did you guys ever by it in the first place? – The guy sucks.

            The knee has noting to do with him being on the outside looking in. – If they thought he could win a game for them they would be on THEIR knees in front of him. They have no integrity of class at all. PERIOD.

          6. Connie Palmarine Condra says

            Anyone who bought season tickets should not torch them. Return them and ask for a refund.

      3. Mathew Molk says

        As we are forcing the apology on the owners by our boycott.

    4. rfrichey says

      I stopped watching last year during pre-season when Kapernick pulled his stunt the first time and nothing was done. They can apologize until the cows come home and I’ll never watch again.

      1. worn out 123 says

        Disgusting wasn’t it? Kaprdick can starve for all I care. I just don’t want government to intervene. This is a job for the citizens of America to decide; liberty or communism?. Californicate, the NFL and the NBA appears to have chosen communism. How about the rest of us?

        1. richard says

          seems like kaperdick is already feeling the “pain”, a story on Newsmax yesterday claims that he would now stand if given the chance…

    5. Allen says

      Dang, Charles, then you missed a great game last night. 3-2 at half time. I thought it was the White Sox against the Twins when I saw the score. Realized it was a football game. Yawn! But, hey, no kneeling.

      1. worn out 123 says

        Too late 4 me. The NFL and NBA SUCKS!

    6. Mathew Molk says

      Grow you a set Chuck. Quit them for life like the true patriots here.

      Hey, There’s one. How bout we get them to force the New England team to change their name like they are doing to the Redskins and the Indians? It pisses me off to have a NWO Marxist team called the “Patriots” .

      1. Charles Wolfe jr says

        I’ve got a large enough pair of balls & if you’d read what I said you’d know I’ve stopped watching any NFL games !!!

    7. LR says

      Anyone want a Pappa John pizza?

      1. Connie Palmarine Condra says

        Hehehe!

  9. Wendy says

    Starts at the top and Goodell is a flaming liberal who has spoken out against DT since day one (feared for his daughters when he was elected)….he could stop this….but chooses to stand by and let the ignorance of these very elite group of athletes dictate the flushing down the toilet of our NFL….I refuse to watch and it’s been my favorite sport for ages…I don’t think my Redskins have taken a knee yet…but have boycotted all NFL.

    1. Christopher James Moore says

      Neither have my beloved Vikings and fans are still flocking to their home games last night during Vikings and bears game they didn’t even telivse anthem

      1. Connie Palmarine Condra says

        They are not televising the Anthem because they don’t want people to see the “players” misbehaving. Hoping to draw back fans.

        1. jerry says

          I believe that’s a chickensh-t out for the networks. And I hope it doesn’t work.

  10. ernldo says

    The traitors and chumps are identifying themselves in America, by the millions. I hope to see the Neanderthal Felons League collapse, then the pathetic NBA. Keep those hits coming, leftist miscreants. Disrespect your best (only for most) chance at success. We also need to begin moving unhappy Americans to places more suited to their tastes. Blacks back to africa (sic) as an example.
    SCREW the NFL!

    1. Mike says

      What racist asshole statement. Go grab Trump by the crotch.

      1. rfrichey says

        We don’t need to insert racism into this fiasco as we can all see which idiots are leading this. I’m not worried about the likes of Brady or Manning, ( Eli ) as I’m sure if they never got another paycheck they can continue living their current lifestyle. If the paychecks stopped today we will have a lot more thugs on the streets.

        1. Mathew Molk says

          We still have a few real policeman left out there that can do things besides DUIs. Not too many, but there are a few, and the scum bags would all be in the calaboso within 9 months of the end of the NFL.

      2. disqus_htVNWSBEmM says

        The players who refuse to honor the flag are racist bigots when they state the reason as being a protest against white supremacy. If it were not for the flag, none of them would be free and millionaires.

        1. Mike says

          They have never stated the reason for their protest is white supremacy. This is the problem with those that are angry with the NFL players they do not even know why. They are protesting because of the large number of growing incidents involving white police officers and black individuals. Most black men and women are the victim of racism. As a white individual I could never truly understand how racism effects them on a daily basis, but to ignore as many do in this country is incorrect and drawing attention to it through a peaceful protest that the NFL players are doing should be celebrated and not demonized.

          1. Tony says

            Not where I grew up. Back in the 50’s. Blacks were not any poorer than anybody else. Some blacks were even better off than whites. Some were school teachers and school principles, store owners, pulpwood haulers, carpenters, farmers, ect. no worse off than the rest of us. I picked cotton also.

          2. Connie Palmarine Condra says

            Wrong venue for protest and insufficient evidence of “increased” racism in LEOs. THAT IS AN OBAMA LIE. The Ferguson, MO officer was cleared by Holder’s racist DOJ of any wrongdoing. If they want to protest, why don’t they protest black-on-black violence which is breaking new records each year? Why don’t the protest government funding of the Planned Parenthood which was founded by a racist nurse to “cull” inferior races and kills thousands of black babies each year? Why don’t they protest deadbeat black dads who abandon their children (i.e. Colin Crapernick)? Why don’t they do something positive? They have the money. Sponsor a business in the neighborhood in which they were raised. Mentor an at-risk child. Stay in the neighborhoods in which they were raised instead of moving to million-dollar mansions in gated neighborhoods and sending their children to private schools. Don’t let gangs take over and terrorize black neighborhoods. In 2016, 250 black men were killed by white officers in the US. Yes, that is too many, but what about this:

            “Where were these Black Lives Matter protesters after the slaying of Chicago’s little Tyshawn Lee, the 9-year-old lured into an alley and shot to death by a black man seeking gang-related vengeance against his father?”

            “FACT 1. Over 1,400 more black Americans murdered other blacks in two years than were lynched from 1882 to 1968.

            According to FBI data, 4,906 black people murdered other blacks in 2010 and 2011. That is 1,460 more black Americans killed by other blacks in two years than were lynched from 1882 to 1968, according to the Tuskegee Institute.

            FACT 2. Black People (mostly men) commit a grossly disproportionate amount of crime.

            In 2012, white males were 38 percent of the population and committed 4,582 murders. That same year, black males were just 6.6 percent of the population but committed a staggering 5,531 murders.

            In other words: black people–at just a fifth of the size–committed almost 1,000 more murders than their white counterparts.

            The figures above highlight a horrific truth that black racialists and white liberals routinely ignore: Lawbreaking black Americans, young black males particularly, put themselves in close proximity to (mostly white male) police officers at rates sometimes five to 10 times higher than whites. This is a recipe for disaster. Thusly….

            FACT 3. Despite making up just 13% of the population, blacks committed half of homicides in the United States for nearly 30 years.

            DOJ statistics show that between 1980 and 2008, black people committed 52% of homicides.

            In 2013, black criminals committed 38% of the murders. Whites accounted for just 31 percent.

            There are five times fewer black people than white people in America and, yet, they consistently carry out a larger share of the crimes? Given this rate, it’s no wonder that there aren’t more assistances where cops kill black criminals.

            FACT 4. Chicago’s death toll is almost equal to that of both wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, combined.

            There have been almost as many deaths in one American city as there have been in the two major wars carried out by the U.S. military this century.

            Chicago’s death toll from 2001–November, 26 2015 stands at 7,401. The combined total deaths during Operation Iraqi Freedom (2003-2015: 4,815) and Operation Enduring Freedom/Afghanistan (2001-2015: 3,506), total 8,321.

            FACT 5. It would take cops 40 years to kill as many black men as have died at the hands of others black men in 2012 alone.

            University of Toledo criminologist Dr. Richard R. Johnson examined the latest crime data from the FBI’s Supplementary Homicide Reports and Centers for Disease Control and found that an average of 4,472 black men were killed by other black men annually between Jan. 1, 2009, and Dec. 31, 2012.

            Professor Johnson’s research further concluded that 112 black men died from both justified and unjustified police-involved killings annually during this same period.

          3. jerry says

            Percentage of crimes being committed supports more incidents involving white police officers to black individuals. Did you see any video of the looting and robbing after the hurricane went thru Miami (they are now called crimes of opportunity) by the PC Democrats. Didn’t see a white person in any of them. Can’t believe the media wouldn’t have used this opportunity to show all the whites looting that they could find.

  15. Bernard Morningstar says

    When my oldest boy graduated from high school where he played football, the only players from his team that were offered college scholarships were black even though there was a white player who was voted “All Metro.” This is what happens all over America because the colleges are required to fill a mandated quota of black students and they cannot justify offering them academic scholarships. The result is the overwhelming number candidates for the NFL are black. Many of them can barely read and write. Dexter Manly is a case in point who after four years of college was functionally illiterate. The NFL is now top-heavy with ignorant black players who know nothing of the history of this nation, how their own government is supposed to work or the benefits of the capitalist economic system over socialism. Now, we are seeing the results of this government imposed policy. Enjoy and remember, keep electing Democrats!

        You can slice and dice this data and it will make you sick. POS Goodell needs to clean up his own house.

        1. TPS12 says
        2. Lisa Meyer says

          Goodell has a title, power, and a ridiculous salary, and that is all he cares about. My neutered cat has more balls than Good-for-nothing does.

      2. Tasine says

        If I owned a team, ONE crime of any of MY players would get him fired and banned from all my games for life. But I am a 78 year old woman with more guts than most of the footballers combined. Pansies all. Losers who make a lot of money because decent people give it to them.

    3. Mathew Molk says

      How ’bout congress passing an affirmative action law for the NFL forcing them to have only the same percentage of minority and female players as the police and fire departments are forced to live with. I don’t see a female linebacker in the NFL any more absurd then a female Ghetto Cop or a female rifleman in an infantry rifle platoon. .

      BTW,,, This would bean the majority of the male negro players would have to go to make room for enough whites to balance the books.

      No prob, though. The NFL is truly Not For Long to be in this world.

      Are you serious ? People use sporting events in place of Gladiators !
      You are incredibly judgemental woman!
      Sheree Hobbs says they should get “Honest Jobs”
      They are hard working athletes, much more amazing to watch then a family bowling team!
      And the people are fans and good people ?!
      So those who like to watch pro sports are “evil sinners” now.
      This site is incredibly entertaining as the far righ, ultra conservative, super duper Evangelical hypercritical people who call everyone else sinners is amazing.
      This site is so full of hate it would be funny if it weren’t so dangerous.

        Anheuser-Busch is considering pulling their ads and has asked fans to call their corporate offices with opinions. Swamp the switchboard!

  18. MILES E DRAKE says

    It is too late to save Big Football. It is clearly aligned with the left and with the party of Weiner, Weinstein and Willy Clinton. The coke-snorting coupon-clipping one-percenters who own the teams can take their drug-crazed menagerie of rapists and murderers and go down the same hole as Kimmel, Gaga and Griffin. The kind of genuine Americans who built, defended and inhabited this country from its founding until the Trojan Horse full of marxists, mohammedans and mongrels rolled in in 2009 will create a new, manly and patriotic sport that represents, uplifts and glorifies our nation and our culture.

  19. James D. Jim Williams says

    I would hate to know I was being led by likes of Kaepernick. When are these players going to learn, you don’t bite the hand that feeds you?

    1. disqus_htVNWSBEmM says

      Never! You can’t teach stupid anything and stupid can’t be fixed. If it were white players protesting against blacks it would be racist, but since it’s the other way around, it must be acceptable.

      1. James D. Jim Williams says

        Your probably right.

      2. Mathew Molk says

        They have been the victim of white privileged coddling them all their worthless lives and hate where there was nothing untoward to them and think they can get away with anything,,,,and do,,,,up ’till this.

        1. disqus_htVNWSBEmM says

          You are right about that. If it were not for the circumstances, a lot of them would be in prison where some of them belong, most likely. But clods, ignoramuses, the uneducated and uncivilized never appreciate the good things that others do for them.

    2. jerry says

      Stupid is as stupid does.

  20. Darren Rusty says

    Fire Roger Goodell immediately. He is a do-nothing, money grubbing fool and the NFL is suffering all because he is too stupid to make a simple rule that players must honor their country at all games. If these idiots want to protest the flag or the anthem, they should do it on their time, not our’s.

    But Roger can’t seem to impose that rule. It seems that he has better things to do with his time like counting his money and God only know what else.

    The NFL deserves whatever it doesn’t get as a result of the total stupidity brought on by Goodell, the owners, the coaches and especially the players. All because some idiot by the name of KaperTrash decided that he didn’t want to honor the flag or our country. Now, this has turned into a sick fad and even school kids are taking a kneel to the flag in class as the pledge of allegiance is recited.

    What a totally messed up world we live in these days. The NFL should be ashamed. Boycott them, block their channel and make your voice heard!

    1. Sol_of_Texas says

      Goodell is the worst Commissioner in the NFL’s history.He’s destroyed everything Pete Rozelle built up.

      The owners aren’t exactly hitting it out of the park either. Arthur Blank (Falcons Owner and Home Depot mogul) seemed to be perfectly willing for his players to kneel. I last watched the Falcons in week 1 and that is the last time I will watch NFL unless it is playing in a restaurant and then only an inadvertent glance.

      1. Darren Rusty says

        True, but the POTUS called Jerry Jones and you might want to read this if you haven’t already.

        http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2017/10/10/trump-tweets-appreciation-for-jerry-jones-after-national-anthem-remarks.html

        Gotta start somewhere.

        1. Robert H Batchelor says

          Darren Rusty – Thank you for the info. I will remember that Jerry Jones is a Patriotic American and that changes my opinion of the Dallas Cowboys organization.

          1. Darren Rusty says

            My problem is that Jerry took a kneel before the anthem at the Monday nite game a week ago. Now that the POTUS called him, he’s turned into the pope. I like what he did and I agree with it, but the POTUS shouldn’t have had to call him to get him off the dime.

          2. Tasine says

            Exactly!!!! Jones showed his weakness early. Some owner! They are ALL WEAK. I do not like football, but those who do must be really disappointed to learn that the entire NFL is nothing more than a bunch of millionaire pansies who hate the nation and the people in it who SUPPORTED THEM. May they all lose their cushy jobs and learn to live the way their former fans have always lived. May citizens of every city in the nation REFUSE TO PAY FOR ANY MORE SPORTS STADIUMS. If the owners want new stadiums, let them pay for them, NOT US.

          3. SD of AZ says

            Sometimes you have to point out what to do to some people. Apparently the president and Jones are those kind of friends. Being proactive is not everyone’s primary trait. And it is always harder to buck the systems when you are the first to oppose it. I know!

          4. Mathew Molk says

            But Farie Jones has something none of his CowBrats have. The pen he signs the pay checks with. It makes it really easy to stand up and be counted when the checkbook is locked in your desk drawer.

            He is just blowing with the wind , though, to try to save his greedy ass but it is way too late.

            I have a lot more respect for the snotballs that are insulting my dead brothers and sisters that died in combat then this 2-faced coward, and I have absolutely no respect for these pukes that hate us veterans and policemen.

          5. SD of AZ says

            I understand been on the wrong side of the PC opinions a time or two myself and took the high road. I like to like the person I see in my mirror every day more than gain respect from some morons I could care less if they like me or not.

          6. worn out 123 says

            Ditto.

          7. An American says

            The owners won’t be able to afford a new stadium when there is not enough money coming in. When the owners & players are standing together in the unemployment lines they will rue the day they didn’t honor our country. No one wants to pay to see a protest, the guest went to the to enjoy the game. if they don’t like it here then go to another country and try to earn their millions there.

          8. worn out 123 says

            “We” must do this. This is up to us. If you love your liberty for yourself and the next generation express your revulsion of the NBA and the NFL in any way, every day.
            The NFL and NBA SUCKS!

          9. An American says

            We love our country and our liberties. These protesters and owners are very disappointing when they demean our flag, anthem and values. Can’t they learn they are in the wrong and should apologize, no they won’t because they think they can have everything their way even when it is wrong. They should get off the football field and let other players waiting to play take their place.

          10. Lisa Meyer says

            When one has millions, and celebrity, they think they are entitled. They use their celebrity status as a platform, thinking it will get more notice. It has gotten notice, just not the kind they wanted. You would think by now that they would realize that their politically motivated protest has failed and backfired on them. But no. The premise of the original protest has been lost because of the venue and the national tradition that these morons chose as their stage.
            They should all put their money and their actions where their mouths are. Donate some of their millions to victim’s rights groups. Start an organization to help the families of those they claim were killed wrongly by police (HINT: there arent as many as they would like you to think). Donate their time to assist in communities where they see “disrespect” occurring, or where police and the community have distrust of one another. Mentor young blacks to keep them out of gangs.
            Why dont they do these things? Because taking a knee doesnt cost them anything.
            Or….does it?

          11. An American says

            Oh Lisa, I agree with you. They should be helping their communities, but no they just want to stand together and put down our values. When the football fans keep up their blackball of going to the games or buying products with their names on it they will change their minds, if not we will see them at the unemployment offices along with the owners who knelt with them.

          12. Lisa Meyer says

            I hope the fans DO keep the pressure up. Unfortunately, it seems people have short memories, and this will probably all die down soon when fanatics need their football fix back.

          13. Linda Shelton says

            The players union is joined to one of the Soros groups, that says it all.

          14. Sol_of_Texas says

            I think that remedy (hiring players who had been cut) will come along too late. I remember the season of the partial strike. That was some of the more interesting football I had seen in a while – very entertaining. It will be a very long time before I consider watching again.

            Goodell’s got to go. All protesting players, coaches, front and back office employees must make a public apology, once for each game they protested. Maybe then I’ll consider watching or attending again.

          15. worn out 123 says

            That makes one of us. No more pro-football or pro-basketball for me. I’m done.

          16. worn out 123 says

            I concur. It MUST NOT be the government that removes them, however. Removing them is the job for you and I. If citizens cannot bring themselves to avoid such shameful activities and hero worship of those who openly disrespect this nation on their job then this nation SHOULD fall. And I cannot wait to see how they enjoy a genuine tyranny imposed on them by a socialist/communist government OF THEIR OWN CREATION.

          17. Mathew Molk says

            Football stadium – Flat spot in a cow pasture surrounded by seats.

            Why do they always need a brand new cow pasture? – The old stadiums had history, tradition, and class. The new ones are only expensive.

            Close the NFL down completely and for the remainder of the time before their final demise double the rent on the stadiums the taxpayers paid for.

          18. Tasine says

            Yes! I love your thinking!!! The difference in the political left and political right is that the right can utilize logic and reason and can be honest. The political left can do none of those things, and they prove it every time one of them opens his mouth.

          19. Darren Rusty says

            You know what, I have little love for the Jerry Jones’ of the world. But it doesn’t surprise me to see that the players are joining the fray and disrespecting the men and women who fight for us ever night and day; our flag; our anthem and our president.

            This isn’t trash … I call is SUPERTRASH and any NFL player who doesn’t remove his helmet and put his hand on his heart is TRASH … SUPERTRASH.

          20. Tasine says

            Exactly so!!! SuperTrash!!!

          21. Tony says

            The NFL has turned into nothing but a political organization. Who needs that?

          22. Sol_of_Texas says

            Correction – 80% are Marxist democrats. The balance are clueless democrats. Nothing “liberal” about these guys except the way they waste money (players, coaches, owners, and club employees included).

          23. Tasine says

            It and many other businesses, and the ROOT CAUSE IS MEDDLESOME GOVERNMENT. If our government ran the way it was designed to run, we would not be in any of the messes our nation is in. Our government is broken, incompetent, meddles in affairs that are NONE OF THE GOVERNMENT’S BUSINESS. I blame our divisive GOVERNMENT as much for all of this crap as I blame the “protesters”. OUR GOVERNMENT HAS ENCOURAGED DIVISIVENESS AND HATRED AND IT HAS CAUSED MORE THAN ENOUGH PROBLEMS FOR ALL AMERICANS.

          24. Sol_of_Texas says

            As Rick Perry titled a book, I too am “Fed up!”

          25. Tasine says

            Ditto, my friend, DITTO!!

          26. laulau says

            Rejection of Colin Krappynick should have told Jones what was going on, and yet, he kneeled with the team. Losing money now is hurting them, so suddenly they are patriotic.

          27. Darren Rusty says

            You got it … it all boils down to $MONEY$ and nothing more. It is for that reason, and not the only one, that I boycott the NFL, the players, the league and the owners. These are money-grubbing do-nothings and I think most Americans are sick of their shit.

          28. Lisa Meyer says

            I would have supported JJ more if he had stood and linked arms with his players before the anthem. The linking of arms was supposedly an act of unification of ALL of the players of the NFL, not the ones who were kneeling in protest. But at least he did do it BEFORE the anthem. Not during, and he is basically telling his players that they will not protest on his dime. So I give him props for at least going that far.
            I was never a Cowboys fan, and I still wont watch the NFL or buy their products until more of the owners and/or the Commissioner grow a pair and put a stop to this BS, but the Cowboys have moved way up the column in my list of teams to root for now.

          29. laulau says

            Jones kneeled with the kneelers last week. Now that their income is affected he changed his tune.

          30. DeAnna Burns says

            They Kneeled BEFORE the Anthem, but STOOD FOR the Anthem. That’s all that mattered to me. Cowboys kept my respect.

          31. richard king says

            Kneeling at all is inappropriate. this is a football game, not a political rally or a church service. We don’t pay to see that.

          32. DeAnna Burns says

            Well Richard King, to each their own. I was sincerely hurt, offended, and embarrassed for our country and the thousands that have sacrificed SO MUCH (including peaceful protesters) throughout our great country that have served to better our country. I am not offended that anyone’s “kneels” for their cause, but not during a time that we are all to stand in unity for our great country! I believe our Country CAN improve! And it is by protesting that we improve things for our fellow man. Before or after Anthem, does not offend me.

          33. richard king says

            Protesting has a time and place. The piont here is that I don’t have to watch unpatriotic behavior on TV, nor buy a ticket for a football game and see it. There is a law against urinating in public, and this is similar behavior, as far as I’m concerned.

          34. DeAnna Burns says

            Fine… Don’t. I don’t see how kneeling before the Anthem is unpatriotic. I am glad they stood for the Anthem. That’s my take on it.

          35. richard king says

            Then go ahead and support these protesting whiners. What are they protesting about, anyway?

          36. laulau says

            People didn’t go to see someone with problems protesting at any time. It was a football game, not a protest they paid to see. especially backing Kaprenick, who had cops shown as pigs on his sox..

          37. Lisa Meyer says

            Perhaps he just had his eyes opened to the the “optics” of what he was doing. But yes, I agree that as the fans begin showing up less and less, it will affect the bottom line, and hopefully maybe more and more owners will get their heads out of their collective axes.

          38. Mathew Molk says

            Unification against our country, our living and dead transverse and active duty military and police and the President of the united States or America.

            We are showing unification against the NFL snotballs

          39. Sol_of_Texas says

            I think I agree but what do you mean by “dead transverse”? I don’t follow that.

          40. richard king says

            Unification is misplaced here. What it is is gutless political correctness.

          41. Lisa Meyer says

            Yep. That too. from the top down

          42. USN Vet 31yrs Svc says

            Amazing what they will do for $$$$. $ come before Honor & respect for America. If they truly believe in the reasons for the protest, then the loss of $$ should not matter. Laying your life down for your country is the ultimate sacrifice not $$$$.

          43. laulau says

            I don’t care if they stand, sit, crawl, kneel…..I won’t be watching anymore… They are jerks.

          44. Mathew Molk says

            He knows which side his bread is buttered on….Screw this asshole…Would you want a 2-face like him covering you if you were walking point in N’ Korea?

          45. Darren Rusty says

            Oh, don’t think I, in any way shape or form, am giving Jerry a pass on this deal. With all of the money he has, he could eliminate homelessness in Texas. Food pantries would be fully stocked and animals wouldn’t have to be euthanized because they have no home.

            Does Jones give to those causes? NO. He counts his bucks like he’s going to take it with him when he drops dead. If I was worth 5.5 Billion, I would certainly be doing something good with it and giving a good part of it to people who truly need it, especially the men and women fighting for our country.

            GREED is one of the seven sins and Jerry Jones is a great example of it. So is Mark Cuban. Beyond these two idiots, living in Dallas is still better than living in California any day of the week.

          46. Firewagon says

            As ole Forest opined: “Stupid is as stupid does!” Sad fact is that this entire misconceived, mistaken, misinformed as to purpose demonstration shudda, cudda, been “nipped in the bud” at the initial! The fallout from “suspending” or even “firing” that “kneeling QB,” might have been more difficult, if not worse, than what we have now; however, short of EVERY player going on strike, it is hard to envision. There has been a strike in the past, and “replacement players” were called in and used – in the event of some large “mutiny,” by the players, that option was available. As some wag noted, early on, the “weak kneed” owners FEAR their own employees!

          47. Sol_of_Texas says

            I enjoyed the partial replacement season. It was interesting and entertaining. I’ll bet it drove professional handicappers nuts!

          48. Firewagon says

            LOL – Absotootly! Lot of those games were actually good. 😊

          49. DeAnna Burns says

            I didn’t mind that they took a knee before the anthem. I don’t even mind their cause. I DO MIND disrespecting the Anthem and the flag. Because it disrespects our servicemen!

          50. Sol_of_Texas says

            Darren — Like many things Jones does, it often seems to lack sincerity.

          51. Linda Vee Sado says

            Jones took a knee with the players too a short time ago. Forget it. He’s just seeing his cash cow sliding downhill

          52. Connie Palmarine Condra says

            His cash cow is being butchered by his employees along with other nfl owners’ cows

          53. DeAnna Burns says

            They are the ONLY team we watch BECAUSE he got his players to STAND!

          54. Frank Kinehan says

            What team stood please?

          55. Mike says

            She is referring to the Dallas Cowboys who knelt before the anthem, but did stand at appropriate attention during the anthem.

          56. richard king says

            That’s not good enough, we don’t watch kneeling, just football. This Jones thing is too clever by half; he caved to his misguided players.

          57. DeAnna Burns says

            Dallas Cowboys.

          58. richard king says

            Nonetheless, his trying to have it both ways by having his players kneel before the anthem was pathetic.

        2. Connie Palmarine Condra says

          Methinks that the NFL owners are starting to see the bottom line fall out of their profits. GOOD!

          1. Retired says

            People should stop buying their clothing and it will get the message out fast !!!

      2. William Von Huben says

        It is in the NFL guidelines that ll players are suppose to stand at attention put their hand over their heart which takes about a minute to show respect for our servicemen that have died for this country and have been injured for this country and the respect you should have for being in this country. There are wrongs, when you have 300 million plus people, every one is not going to be happy but this country gives you a chance at a good living and a chance at the American Dream when most countries in the world don’t. If you do not like your country there are plenty of other countries that will take you but one thing for sure you will not have the chance to do what you want in other countries. Most of the problems with the police are the people do not do what the police tell them to do. If they did there would be almost know injuries or deaths.

        1. Tony says

          Lack of institutional control. They should be cited and fined for it, like an NCAA violation.

      3. worn out 123 says

        If it is playing in a resturaunt I will let them know it offends me.

        1. Blues Man says

          I was at a Hooters restaurant last Thursday night. There were at least 14 TV’s. The waitresses were asking customersbif they would be offended if any were tuned to the NFL game. It ended up that only a few people wanted it on. So 2 TV’s had NFL, 6 had Baseball playoffs, 3 had Hockey and 3 had a college football game on. I thought that ratio was awesome. Message to NFL;Everyone notices, everyone cares, and now you are last place to other sporting events. I have 100% boycotted them and I have been an avid fan for more than 40 years. Sundays are now free to play golf and do other things. Bye bye!

          1. Scuttlebutt says

            Blues Man—don’t know what “your” name means, BUT, I am a huge blues music man & blues musician

      4. Ronald Logan says

        It may be necessary for me to watch just the first few minutes so I can find out whose sponsoring them so I can also boycott the sponsor as well It`s unusual to watch just for the advertisements.I just flip channels to busy watching something constructive or educational to give them any time there`s a lot more to TV than the nfl

        1. Connie Palmarine Condra says

          Tell the sponsors that you are boycotting their products and WHY. They will pay far more attention than the owners.

          1. Carolyn Gilmartin says

            I did and will continue to do so.

          2. Scuttlebutt says

            Done that, by email, telephone & letter to those that deserve to be told.

        2. dpg01 says

          Thanks, I will use your excellent technique! Millions should follow your guidance.

      5. Mathew Molk says

        My son and several others got up and left the corner bar the week before last when the Browns took a knee and the bar owner refused to turn the TV off.

        1. hangem'high says

          Boycott the bar!

        2. Connie Palmarine Condra says

          I expect that he will wish he had made a different decision.

        3. Sol_of_Texas says

          I was a Browns fan (I like underdogs) and an NFL fan until Kaepernick’s shenanigans last year. Damn Roger Goodell to hell!

      6. Molon labe says

        The owners and managers are just as guilty as the players for not putting a stop to this bs!

    3. Just1Saddletramp says

      The manual by which the NFL players are to conduct themselves specifically states that during the national anthem “players are to stand at attention, helmet at their side in left hand, right hand over heart. No conversing.” This NFL rule is simply NOT being enforced as players can be severely fined for violating it.

      1. Darren Rusty says

        These unpatriotic fools should be kicked out of the NFL … permanently.

        1. Mathew Molk says

          The NFL and the weak kneed owners should be kicked out of the country,,,,,permanently!

      2. Lisa Meyer says

        The NFL claims that that is “policy”, not a rule. Policies are generally stated for a company or organization to attain its goals or objectives, and are not, generally speaking, enforced as rigidly as are rules.
        One would suppose that a goal or objective of the NFL would be that they are a patriotic organization and would like to project themselves as such, to the many fans who contribute to their revenue and ridiculous salaries. Apparently, one would be wrong.
        There is a very fine line between “policy” and “rule”. Policy can be ignored with very little consequence, unless the organization that sets said policy decides to enforce it. Rules get enforced with penalty.
        It seems that the NFL cant figure out which is which. They will suspend and fine a player for helmet-to-helmet contact (depending on if the player is an A-lister or not), but won’t fine players for consistently violating “policy”. IE: Disrespecting this country, the flag, and those who have served. Not to mention all the players who have committed criminal acts and gotten off with a slap on the wrist and continue to play and make their big salaries, AKA Ben Worthlessburger, the serial Groper, among others.

        1. LR says

          You will see what Jerry Jones is made of by an apology to the fans and country……or pride and ego won’t let him.

          1. Lisa Meyer says

            I think all the fans will get in a way of apology is what he stated in the interview. That the Cowboys players will respect the flag, or they won’t play. And that is more than we will get from any of the other teams that have pulled this garbage.

        2. Connie Palmarine Condra says

          Other organizations enforce polices as rules. If I violated policy when I worked in the hospital, I was reprimanded.

          1. Lisa Meyer says

            I agree with you. In MOST places, one would be reprimanded or written up for violating a company policy. But the NFL enforces policy at its discretion, which apparently in this case, means it doesn’t have any. Commissioner Goodell is a spineless, worthless toad. You would think that the reputation and value of good players who DO good works for their communities would want to be upheld by him. But apparently, image doesn’t mean anything.

      3. richard king says

        $50,000 for a first offense, $100,000 for the second, barred from the league for a third. Might get their attention, and could weed out some of the dumbest players.

        1. Glenn Newton says

          Weed out the dumbest players! You wouldn’t have any football left.

    4. worn out 123 says

      Not in a free nation. It must be “We the people” who decide if we want American communism. Speak with your wallet. Speak in such a forum as this. Speak to your friends and neighbors. Refuse to watch or discuss pro. football. Let you voice be heard every day to everyone even if they are offended. Excercise your freedom of speech and if we are not heard due to lack of our numbers let us perish as a free society.

      1. Mathew Molk says

        We were cutting down a big tree in the front yard last Sunday and the pizza delivery kid said “Man the browns blew another one” OI responded in a very serious tone “who”? He said “you know. the Cleveland browns” I responded in a very cold tone of voice. “I am a Vietnam Combat veteran and a retired Cleveland Policeman.- Who did you say you were talking about?” He turned white and slithered back to his vehicle,,,,sans tip. – I think he got the message I had no use for the browns, the NFL, or anyone who supports them.

        If you are not part of the solution, you are part of the problem. Boycott the NFL, it’s sponcers and shun anybody that supports them,

        1. Mike says

          So as a veteran I assume you boycott President Trump as well. He insulted a Gold Star family and POWs. He said both sides in Charlottesville had good people despite one side chanting Nazi slogans and carrying the Confederate flag which is a symbol of an armed revolt against this country. You do not support the NFL that is fair so you must also not support Trump given his lack of respect for the flag and the families of veterans.

        2. Frank Kinehan says

          Those that support the NFL ARE AS bad as the thugs that are not respecting the flag, anthem, or citizens of this country. Maybe the players can deliver pizzas for a living .

        3. Connie Palmarine Condra says

          Way to go and thank you for your service both in Vietnam and in Cleveland.

        4. Robert Dostoevsky says

          What a tough guy! Berating a pizza delivery kid and then stiffing him. Couldn’t you have explained your position and maybe enlisted someone to join the protest. You explained how you think by saying he slithered back to his vehicle.

    5. Ronald Logan says

      Since they refuse to honor our nation an it`s brave who fought for their sorry asses maybe we should change their name to the national foreign league.Since they refuse to represent America.

      1. Darren Rusty says

        Sounds great to me. Where do I need to go to sign up?

      2. Lisa Meyer says

        I saw someone on another forum call it the National Felons League. LOL

      3. Lisa Meyer says

        I saw someone on another forum call it the National Felons League. LOL

        1. Frank Kinehan says

          I saw NFL=NO FANS LEAGUE

        2. Connie Palmarine Condra says

          I saw “No Fans Left”

          1. Lisa Meyer says

            That’s a good one also!

          1. Kris says

            Peggy does a good job revealing the stats on the national felon league in this good YouTube video

    6. Phil Esposito says

      I read an article the other day that the NFL does have a rule about the anthem. Players must stand, face the flag and have no head wear on. So they’re already breaking one of their rules.

      1. Lisa Meyer says

        Is it a rule? Or policy?
        NFL says it is a policy, which they can enforce or not, at their discretion.

        Let them all stand, sit, kneel, or stand on their heads if they want to. Just make them stay in the locker room while they do it. Or don’t show them on television. Personally, I think the military should stop taking part in all of the NFL games. No Honor Guard, no flyovers, no veteran appearances. And when the National Anthem is played, all network cameras should be focused on the flag, and nowhere else.

        1. Phil Esposito says

          I don’t remember if they said rule or policy, but the wording sounding pretty stern and respectful.

          1. Lisa Meyer says

            That is the problem. It’s all words, with no teeth unless the NFL enforces it. Which apparently the leadership (Goodell) is to cowardly to do, probably because they are going to be called racist by their players if they do. And Goodell (as well as a good percentage of owners) is a liberal windbag anyway, so anything he can do to be a thorn in the Pesident’s side is just fine with him.
            The Dallas players wanted to honor the five slain Dallas police officers during a game last year. Goodell said “NO”. Whose side do you think he is on?

          2. Phil Esposito says

            Lisa,

            I love your conservative thinking and agree 100% with you. You sound like an NFL fan like me. I’m giving up watching football until the league shows respect for our country, flag and anthem. How about you?

          3. Lisa Meyer says

            Thank you Phil!
            I USED to be an NFL fan. Haven’t watched a game since October of last year, and even when (if) the players get past this nonsense and go back to playing football instead of making political statements, I probably still won’t watch any games. The NFL has shown it’s true colors, and I won’t support in any way such anti-Americanism. I have discovered “Life Over Football”!

        2. Connie Palmarine Condra says

          What about USAA continuing their support through their commercials.?

          1. Lisa Meyer says

            USAA is a private Texas-based financial services group that provides those services exclusively to military veterans and their families. They are not related to the military except by virtue of having been established by veterans. As a private industry, they can do whatever they want, but in the interest of the more than 11-million veterans that they serve, it would behoove them to listen to their members, who should be boycotting them if they are not.

    7. Mathew Molk says

      Who cares? If you think about it the NFL was on it’s way out anyway. This just accelerated the end.

      1. Darren Rusty says

        And ya know … I’m not exactly crying about it and I do enjoy watching football. But the NFL has taken the joy out of doing that, so it doesn’t matter anymore.

    8. richard king says

      Good point that these players, whom many kids admire as role models, have betrayed their society in a most egregious protest that no one understands. It is gratuitous trashing of American tradition, the hell with them.

    9. Connie Palmarine Condra says

      If my grandson “took the knee” he would be standing for the next week. I would beat his butt.

    10. Connie Palmarine Condra says

      The jocks seem to have forgotten that a protest can work both ways and the fans are the odds-on favorite in this contest. They are protesting with their money.

    11. MudEngineer says

      It is even worse than that for do nothing Godell. The rule already exists in the NFL operations manual and Godell is too damn dumb to enforce it. He is virtually single handedly sabotaging his own organization and the players are committing financial suicide. You can’t fix stupid!

    12. William Morgan says

      The NFL already has the rule, they just don’t have what it takes to enforce their rule.

      1. Robert Dostoevsky says

        It’s a policy.

    13. Scuttlebutt says

  21. tom cook says

    Arrogant entitled blacks; that is the NFL; let them pick cotton, that is what they are good at. MSL offers fun sport and lots of white players.

    1. Scosh says

      Excellent idea, but we have machines to do that now. Drive a stake in the NFL, NBA, hire more blacks. Look at the legacy St. Louis, Baltimore, Chicago, Detroit, etc, now the NFL and NBA. God bless our troops and police.

    2. Mathew Molk says

      You have to have a work ethic to do that and they have none. I don’t think they even do an 8 hour day in training camp Picking Cotton from can to can’t would kill the sissies.

    3. Robert Dostoevsky says

      Thanks for your post, my list of real bigots needed a few new names.

  22. SouthernPatriot says

    Overpaid pampered athletes pretending to protest lack of social justice, police brutality on blacks but ignoring black on black murder and crime. Now that law enforcement has been pilloried by leftist agents and MSM, they now do not respond to some calls in the black community. Law enforcement now does not have a regular presence in those areas resulting in 900 more deaths last year and on track to have an additional 900 plus deaths this year. Leftists and black activists are in effect causing more and more black deaths.

    1. Mathew Molk says

      Look, I was a cop in Cleveland back in the “Bloody 70s when it was not in bad taste to kill a policeman. I can tell you right now. Nobody who would make a pimple on a policeman’s ass would refuse to go ANYWHERE or not respond to a run no matter what it was or where it was.

      Yes there are a lot of people on the job today that do not belong there, but not all cops are collage boys that only are interested in DUIs. There are still Policeman in our country that do the job as it is supposed to be done no matter what the MSM and BLM controlled NFL says.

  23. Jim Hays says

    You don’t see any of this disrespect watching NASCAR. Nothing but respect for the flag. Everyone standing, hand over heart, singing he national anthem, and usually a “fly-over” by the USAF. I switched between this n NFL games. But no more….NASCAR only for me from now on.

    1. Mathew Molk says

      NASCAR has gone WAY down from what it once was back when it was ?run what you brung” but I have to agree. Even now it beats the NFL 6 ways to Sunday, and not only in the Patriotism department, but in the actual performance it’s still many times better the the anemic NFL.

    2. Connie Palmarine Condra says

      Well, there was one, but I think he regrets his stance–or lack thereof.

  24. Ron Dapo says

    It would go a long way for the cause if the protesting players would simply donate say 80% of their total pay, to the poor down and out black’s that are being victimized by everyone else in the world.

  25. littlesmoke says

    Aside from all this, I have found that not spending my time hunkered down in front of the TV all day Sunday, plus 2 nights during the week, and getting up and “expanding my Horizons” working on projects, interacting with friends and family, end getting some fresh air is really enjoyable. Everybody should try it, it will really make you feel good, trust me.

  26. Richard Start says

    In any business it is important to know your audience and this is where these players faild to do their homework. They come from colleges so know that half of their audience might support this move however the other and possibly larger share is the common man including Red Necks and among them are some patriotic people who don’t appreciate having their flag or Nation disrespected!
    Let’s add to this an even more important point. this protest is based on the idea we are a racist Nation as represented by a few incidents in the news with police and that is insulting a lot of people who don’t think of themselves as racists while listening to news stories on “white privilege” with not one voice being raised to stop that racism! I can see why the NFL protest is failing on hypocrisy alone.

  27. Bob Flannery says

    born and raised in philly, which hasnt had a republican mayor since 1948-52, or for public school educated democrats that is 65 years of one party rule, democrat liberal rule,,,and what do we have, high homicide rates in black communities, public schools that are great for union teachers, but kids dont get educated, and people moving out in droves,,,high taxes to pay pensions for union drones,,,and of course we have the eagle, flyers, phils and 76ers. It is with a sad heart that i have to say i have not watched any eagles games, or any NFL games for that matter, you see i love football and the eagles, but i love our country much more than to be preached to by spoiled multi millionaire cry babies, what has the players done for the people in florida, those killed in nevada, these are the same guys who go to strip clubs and spend thousands and thousands of dollars to have a woman shake her ass in their face, and we are going to lisen to how hard they have it,,,,when stopped by police lisen to what they tell you to do,,obey them, and stop thinking because you can run fast, and catch a ball you are some hero,,,the heros are the cops, fireman and military, and you to arrogant to see your killing the golden goose,,,,screw football and screw you

  28. Timothy Draheim says

    I sincerely do not believe the NFL Anti-American protests are anything but a way to get attention, like children. They don’t give a damn about anything but themselves ( although they disrespect themselves too). Probably 95% of the Anti-America protesters have criminal records, mostly Felons.

  29. Bob Flannery says

    i find now i am free on sundays and to spend time doing things i havent done in years, if the football players changed their actions tomorrow, i am not going back to watch 6 hours of millionaires playing a kids game, NFL exists for people to gamble, to loss their hard earned money on a game, and we have ungrateful players and owners who seem to think america cant exist without them,,,,i wont ever go back to wasting my time in front of a tv watching super rich, ungrateful babies play a game, while telling us how hard a life they have,,,,,crying in their champagne at the local strip club, in the VIP area, or beating the shit out of some girl friend of the week,,,or killing dogs,,,,tell that bull shit story to some one who cares,,,i dont

  30. Bob Flannery says

    why should the NFL get special tax breaks,,,make them pay their fare share,,,,NOW

    1. Darren Rusty says

      These people get millions for what they do. If anything, they should pay more in taxes than we do. The NFL is going down the tubes and while I like football, I don’t give a flying flip.

      Disrespect my country, my flag and my national anthem and you are dead to me. I will learn to do something else on Sunday and the NFL can go to hell.

      1. Mathew Molk says

        Look what OSU did to Woody Hayes for putting a boot in a players ass. (Which my football coaches did to all of us from the time I was in the 7th grade) They didn’t care what it did to the football program.

        Look what the NFL did to these clowns – Didn’t fire them for a flagrant rule book violation – They tried to make heros out of them. –

        1. Darren Rusty says

          This, unfortunately, is how society has changed in our world. When I was in school … a Catholic school, not public … if I stepped out of line I got slapped in the head … literally. These brothers had one rule: they didn’t put up with any bullshit and we all knew it. We respected it unconditionally.

          If you did that today, you would be jailed for assault. The NFL is the same way … gotta watch what you say because it might be deemed as offensive or racist or discriminatory. Bullshit! Sometimes, everybody needs a swift kick in the head. This is how we learn and become better people in the end.

          As I look back on all that, I am quite proud of the way I was schooled and raised. Never, ever would I do what these NFL idiots are doing today. I couldn’t live with myself. And certainly, I was raised better than that!

    2. larry outlaw says

      They get tax breaks, and the tax dollar builds their stadiums, finish them off, by turning them off.

  31. Dave Fischer says

    The hell with the NFL commissioner who obviously doesn’t care because he has his head way up his ass….the hell with the owners who put up with this shit as well. You are the owners, tell your overpaid assholes what you want from them and if not, they are fired…..get rid of them. This is still a great country, they make millions of dollars playing a children’s game, tell them to wake up, or get up or better yet, get the fuck out!

  32. Bob Flannery says

    screw you colin,, your own mother said your a scum bag, a phony, and now you say you will stand for the flag, screw you,,,you realize now your big money pay days are over, and you could care less about your phony protests,,,,go get a job,,not in football those days are over, get a job as a plumber, or a roofer, or a truck driver, see what its like to work for a living,,,,you wont be able to afford that big manskion so you will be selling that soon,,,at a loss,,,good luck

    1. Mike W says

      There’s irony here – Colin’s Foundation gave $25,000 to a group who supports a cop killer – when the dust settles and all these NFL players come out of the fog – get their heads out of their asses and understand how much this has cost them – Colin may very well be begging for police protection.

    2. Mathew Molk says

      I don’t get where you collage boys get the idea that anybody can drive a truck of be a plumber or roofer. (What is the take up and make up on a 1-1/2″ elbow, there kid)

      There is no question in my military mind YOU couldn’t handle any of those jobs let alone this pampered black poodle.

      I’m retired but I can get a small contract if you want to come and try it. I’ll have you begging to go home before break time. Then my beat up 70 year old ass will have to finish the job that you couldn’t handle by myself.

  33. Michael Dennewitz says

    N. F. L. NO FANS LEFT ! 😂🤣😃😄😅

  34. Mike W says

    I personally would like to thank the NFL for opening my eyes. I quit watching at the beginning of pre-season. Since then I have used all the money and time formerly wasted on the NFL to get caught up on all my chores around the house and even make a few improvements – the end result – Momma is happy and our property value has gone up – a win win for me- screw them.

    1. Mathew Molk says

      Right on Brother Mike. – If you get done at your place and are bored I am putting a roof on the barn. I’ll by the pizza and beer. – Bring your own nail gun , though.

      1. Connie Palmarine Condra says

        Not Papa John’s though. Right?

  35. Christopher James Moore says

    While it looks like all those crybaby liberals who’ve been trying to get rid of the nfl for years are getting their wish my warning though is leave the nhl alone

  36. Nina Ferguson says

    Will the last person leaving the stadium please turn out the lights?

  37. Jim Hays says

    NASCAR only for me from now on. National anthem playing,. Eveyone standing. Often a flyover by the USAF. NO demonstrations, disrespect for flag, etc. Nothing political! NFL is gone.!

  38. rfrichey says

    Why are we still discussing the NFL? I’m done with them and no matter what I will never watch or for that matter care what happens in the NFL. They’re dead as gar as I’m concerned. R.I.P. Y. A. Tittle, you were a real man and played the game for the love of it unlike these twerps who are not real men and could care less about the game.

  39. Ronnie Cowlishaw says

    I am one of those! they will never be on my T.V. again or receive a penny from me screw them and the NBA!

  40. Christopher James Moore says

    If only Roger Goodell could see these comments. Fact is NFL has been dying for years cause fans are sick of watching a bunch of overpaid idiots with a first grade education acting like jack asses.

    1. PatriotGal says

      But Roger stil demands he receive a 9 digit bonus!!!!

    2. Mathew Molk says

      The roughing the football penalties kind of took the edge off the game too. – Touch tackle or flag football is just around the corner. The knee thing just hastened the end of the crappy game .

  41. cabowabo78727 says

    Not that I care, but you just watch what kind of half-time show they have this season. It will be a cRAP band just to please all of the malcontents.

  42. PatriotGal says

    So sad…the NFL has allowed themselves to be used as goons by the far-left agenda to emasculate males. Yup, that is the main part of the issue – let’s ruin sports where the “males” are superior but we’ll “use” racial inequality, anti America, anti Trump as our “shtick”, and the idiot ballplayers who can’t think for themselves, bought into it hook, line, and sinker. So long, now turn in your helmets and don your “pussyhats” – you earned them.

  43. Carl Pyzowski says

    Hey NFL! Each of you pick a city in Goffafornia and protest all you like!

    1. Joseph Carrilho says

      We have enough ignorant, and violent, protesters already in Calif..

      I read that the stupid fuuking goon, Gov. Brown, recently signed
      a bill to make the whole state a sanctuary for illegal aliens.
      He’s as criminal as the illegals he’s trying to protect. Pisses me off BIG TIME.

  44. vinny says

    They should do that with that other sport.NBA and it stands for NIGGERS are BLACK ASSHOLES!!!

    1. Joseph Carrilho says

      Your language smacks of “Divide & Conquer” and the destruction it ALWAYS brings.

  45. Mike says

    let’s be thankful that the players at least didn’t insult a Gold Star family, insult POWs by saying that they liked those that were not captured, or expressed that there were good people on both sides of the Charlottesville protests. you remember the one side that chanted Nazi slogans and carried the Confederate flag. a flag that represents an open rebellion against the United States. the very flag we are supposed to be respecting. it’s a good thing these players in the NFL did not dodge the draft with multiple deferments, one a medical deferment for bone spurs that the person can now not even remember what foot they were in. it is a good thing these players were not that disrespectful. oh wait the same group that now expresses outrage at this disrespect by the players elected the person talked about above as our president.

    1. go
