    I'm sick of this. This disrespecting of our country is conducted by a bunch of spoiled black athletes. Now the whole NFL has been turned into an anti-American joke. **** the NFL, I have plenty of other things to do. I don't need to be made angry before the start of every NFL game.

    I’ll watch some games.

    25 years ago, I was in a fantasy football league and my Sundays from 9:00 am to 11:00 pm were dominated by the NFL. Now my interest is minimal. But I still love the Patriots, like the Cowboys, and hate the Raiders.

    when I discovered the average game only had 12 1/2 minutes of actual playing time per game I stopped watching...and that was 40 years ago...much to slow and boring, it's no wonder it has so many tv time outs and talking heads, how else are they gonna fill two hours of air time...

    The things people get themselves all worked up over. America is a land of free speech, not a land of flag worship and forced public displays of reverence.

    Rather like TV in general. I call it commercialated, it's so bad. It's really a shame that we can't have something free without it drowning in ads.

    it has nothing to do with being left or right or in the center...the police don't ask what political viewpoint someone is when they gun them down, but too many do appear to use skin color as a primary guide whether to shoot someone...so it's a skin color issue and not leftist, so everyone should be concerned...

    the protests are directed at american society where people like you make assumptions based on skin color and recklessly shoot and kill with impunity and society appears to care little to prevent it...instead you deflect to leftists as an excuse in order to ignore it, I'd be more than a little annoyed and concerned if the State security agency were targeting me for my appearance...the NFL already brings in military displays into the game so it's already politicized the NFL with the State's security presence so it's no longer just a game but become a state sanctioned political event...

    to quote a movie "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!" taking a knee is pretty mild protest considering the seriousness of the problem and highlights how little you care...

    I was going to give the NFL a chance if the owners would have handled the disrespect to the flag, since they balked, I'm done...

    Naw, I'm DONE with the NFL. It had already turned into a long, drawn-out, boring series of mindless interruptions, with way too many commercials, promos, and other interruptions. Now, thanks to the fact that the teams are about 70% - 72% Black, there's also the "political theater" aspect of turning it into a BLM and ANTIFA, America-hating spectacle before the damn game can even begin. F*ck ALL of it!

    I've discovered NHL ice hockey, and, MAN, what a game that is! Even if the political Black clowns hadn't started all this America-hating propaganda crap before NFL games, I'd still be far more interested today in hockey, because it's a much better game, it MOVES quickly, it doesn't get interrupted every time somebody bumps into somebody else, and it requires real strength, coordination, and skill for more than ten seconds at a time!

    Check out the NHL... the pre-season starts in a little over a month, with regular season play at the beginning of October: https://www.nhl.com/schedule . There are 31 teams in the NHL, and you probably have one near you....

    Ever hear of the term "Useful idiots" ?

    The phrase was coined by Vladimir Lenin and the tactic was used by the Kremlin and the KGB just not in America but throughout the world and is used by the radical left today.

    Useful idiot
    (Political jargon)
    A person perceived as a propagandist for a cause of whose goals they are not fully aware and who is used cynically by the leaders of the cause. The term was originally used to describe non-Communists regarded as susceptible to Communist propaganda and manipulation.


    During the counterculture movement during the 1960's and 70's the vast majority of the counterculture movement, the hippies, SDS, Black Panthers, Students Nonviolent Coordinating Committee, the anti draft and the anti Vietnam War protesters were the useful idiots of the Kremlin.

    Even Walter Cronkite ended up being an useful idiot of the Kremlin when he reported fake news and lied about the Tet Offensive of 1968.

    Black Lives Matter (BLM) is a radical leftist (Marxist) political organization one of its co-founders being a Marxist, Aliza Garza.

    Kaepernick unknowing was a useful idiot of the Marxist by kneeling during the playing of the National Anthem. It's political and the radical left and their useful idiots have politicalized the NFL.

    You quote from the movie "Network."
    "I'm mad as hell and i'm not going to take this anymore"

    How many times have you watched the movie ? Do you even understand what the movie was about ?
    Fake News and "I'm mad as hell and i'm not going to take this anymore !!!"

    There was fake news even during the 60's and 70's but not like what we see today.


    In the movie Howard Beale had to be eliminated and it was decided by the fake news "network" that useful idiots like the Ecumenical Liberation Army would assassinate Howard Beale live on television.

    In the movie the Ecumenical Liberation Army is an ultra-left sect creating political confusion with wildcat violence and pseudo-insurrectionary acts.
    (In real life the Black Panthers or the symbionese Liberation Army who got their orders from the Kremlin via CPUSA).

    Historical sidenote:
    In the movie you will hear the phrase "ulta-left" being used by black Marxist radicals. The phrase was actually coined during the 60's and 70's by black political radicals.

    Do you think President Trump is the Howard Beale of today and with all of the fake news that Trump is "mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore !!" ?

    And fake news CNN, MSNBC, NYT and of course the DNC have decided like Howard Beale during the 1970's, Trump has to be taken down ?


    The movie "Network" is worth watching again. Excellent movie.

    Well, I, for one, sure as hell don't plan on doing anything to make these "Useful Idiot" thugs any richer than they already are. That includes spending any of my time watching any of their ritualized 'ghetto-brawls' on TV. No more!

    The radical left and their useful idiots has politicized the NFL.

    If I want to attend or watch a political event I would rather attend or watch a Trump rally than a NFL game.

    You aren't going to see anyone at a Trump rally kneeling to anyone or any thing.
    Americans don't kneel to anyone except maybe God.

    The NFL has been in trouble for some time. The NFL has become the National Felons League.


    Many of these NFL players today would be gang banging or sitting in prison if they weren't playing for the NFL.

    It's no longer about the game of football but money. It's big business.

    Todays NFL isn't the same NFL like during the Vince Lombardi days when it was all about playing football the love of the sport and winning.
    Back when every NFL player earned a real useful college degree, and held down real jobs during the off season.

    No felons played for the NFL back during the Vince Lombardi days.

    Anyone who is or was a NFL fan and love the sport of the game should read the article below.
    The NFL made a wrong turn somewhere.
    It's no longer about the love of the game but money.

    Excellent read.

    48 years ago Uncle Sam spent a whole crap load of money on me training me to kill commies.

    I like to think I was good at it.

    Ditto. I was ready to help nuke Russian military installations during the Cold War. Nothing has changed except that the Marxists have now gained very nearly total control of the Dem Party inside the United States of America and that of their useful idiot core base of followers. That aside; the NFL has no loyalty to this nation or even to its fans. To . . . hell . . . with . . . it.

    I'll probably increase my viewing this season just so I can watch the players piss off our racist, golden shower pervert, White House occupant.

    Anyone who served in the U.S. military from 1946 to 1990 was trained for doing one thing, killing commies.

    Today those who have served from 2001 to today are trained to kill Islamist jihadist.

    Now our military is training to kill Chi-Coms for the coming war with China.

    Because Hillary lost the election the liberals want the U.S. military to be training for killing Russians but the liberals don't want to pay for it.

    There are more commies and internationalist socialist in America today than there was during the Cold War.

    Time to bring back HUAC (House Un-American Activities Committee)

    Antifa, BLM, liberal snowflakes, MS-13, some National Felons League players would all become enemies of the United States.

    Yeah I'll watch the games, but if even one player takes a knee or makes a political display I will stop watching that particular team. I've got no interest or time to support anybody whether black or white who sticks his ass in the face of the American football fan. Just one player, and if his team owner lets him get away with it I won't watch that team all season long.

    Yes. I'll watch on TV but not attend. I always PVR it so I can FF all the BS and commercials and just watch the game.
    Actually I prefer the CFL game. Much bigger playing field and only three downs makes for a more exciting game IMO. A lot more passing, especially deep balls which I like to watch. The players are almost all Americans. They play their hearts out up there for a fraction of what NFL players get.
