That's what you get when you protest the anthem.

From what it looks from what I am reading, a drop from week3 to week4 is normal...last year dropped over 10%...Trump was not Pres yet at that time

People can talk about all the ideals they want but at the end of the day, in this country, for the majority of the populace, money is god. Money isn't my god but it is for a lot of people... point is... if it goes into the pocketbooks enough it'll end quick lol.

Hmm... I assumed that is exactly the reason why they chose to kneel while the anthem was played. Weird.

Oh, now they aren't protesting the flag because the public is calling them out on it, but they could have done as the Cowboys did and knelt (protested) before the anthem, and then stood during the anthem as a sign of respect.

No, they intentionally chose to kneel during the anthem for a specific reason. What was that reason, do you think?

Cause they knew it'd piss people off, right?

Exactly.

Game. Set. Match.

Here is another thing...the 'left'...or 'libs' etc...don't give a shit about ticket sales

For all I care NFL ticket sales/profit could be slashed in half 50%...and the right can go form their own football league with flags and eagles and shit all over the fckin place where everyone is forced to stand or be fired.

That's cool with me.

NFL owners have been threatened with this for a while now and still speak out against Trump...so money isn't ruling them when it comes to this...not yet anyway

The NFL is dumb if they rally behind leftist ideology. A lot of "liberal" opinion leaders want to see football go away or at least be modified to the point it's unwatchable, thereby eliminating the appeal from high school and on up. Less people watching means smaller paychecks. People on the right tend to favor parents making their own choice as what's ok for their children to participate in and will fight to keep football as it is i.e. entertaining.

Down the line, football players are really shooting themselves in the foot by alienating patriotic Americans, who mostly tend to be from the right. But keep siding with leftists and giving the finger to people on the right and watch what will inevitably happen.

They aren't 'giving the finger to the right' or 'protesting the anthem'



I mean...no matter how many times it's explained to you dummies you still just can't grasp it. It's not hard to grasp either.

It's like saying Rosa Parks was protesting the 'bus'.


The players kneeling don't have anything against the military, or the flag, or the country. Many of them have military family members of some sort.

You silly bastards really think this is still about police treatment of blacks and minorities?

Haha, think again... it's trendy and it's anti Trump... tons of people had the option to follow Kap last year... did they? No. What was different? Obama was in office.

Use your brain.

Until Trumps tweets is was about police brutality

Now it's morphed into a protest against Trump's divisiveness


point is...it has NEVER EVER been a protest against the anthem, or flags, or country, or military, etc
