    The NFL commissioner is blasting Trump for being divisive. Seems Trump criticized the players kneeling or ignoring the national anthem.

    "The NFL and our players are at our best when we help create a sense of unity in our country and our culture. There is no better example than the amazing response from our clubs and players to the terrible natural disasters we've experienced over the last month. Divisive comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the NFL, our great game and all of our players, and a failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities."

    So glad to know that his players disrespecting the national anthem creates a sense of unity in our country and culture. And that their actions are not at all divisive. Is it just me, or am I missing the logic here?

    From Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank:
    "We are at our very best when we are working together, building unity and including everyone's voice in a constructive dialogue. Creating division or demonizing viewpoints that are different than our own accomplishes nothing positive and undermines our collective ability to achieve the ideals of our democracy."

    Okay, so liberals use violence to silence opposing viewpoints. Players kneeling during the national anthem. That is really building unity and including everyone's voice, is it not?? And those actions could never be divisive, could they?? And seems like demonizing viewpoints is exactly what Blank is doing in his post.

    Yet more hypocrisy from the liberals.

    I don't patronize the NFL. Shame, because I thought it was a pretty good thing back through the 70's.

    I've become very disappointed in the NFL, to the point I don't care to watch it anymore. I'm also frustrated that President Trump -sometimes- takes it too far with his comments. Address the kneeling issue and move on. No reason to keep attacking them over the "boring" game or becoming "too regulated for safety" etc.

    Makes them look like victims now or something. It's all ridiculous.

    He should start doing press conferences right at the start of the games.
    Pretty sure all the major networks have to run it.
    Nobody watching them kneel??
    They'll stop in no time.

    it's been more than 10 years since i watched football, almost 40 years ago i gave up on base ball. only watch the triple crown and the big 4 in golf. i'd rather be out playing golf than watching it, i'd rather be doing practically anything before watching football. being active rather than inactively watching sports on TV seems counter productive. as for the personalities involved in this latest dust up, i could not care less.

    i no longer hunt, if i needed the food i would. i get along with folks who hunt and eat what they kill, i do not associate with folks who trophy kill. it comes down to how much are we willing to pay to let morons entertain us. the vikings new stadium is built right on the central migration flight path, they wouldn't build it out of glass that would keep birds away, the estimate based on the bodies they've found reckon millions of migrating birds will be killed yearly so people can watch football. i remember the giant flocks of migrating geese every fall, v formation after v formation with hundreds of geese in each formation. geese no longer migrate in those giant flocks because the route is learned, we killed all the older geese who led the migration so now we have small enclaves of non migratory geese.

    homo sapiens should be renamed to homo moron

    sorry, my opinion only and your mileage may vary

    I like watching football, unfortunately. I don't really root for specific teams, I dont wear any sports clothing etc, but I enjoy watching the game...guess it's just one of those things I've always done, and remember watching with my father when I was younger. Too bad it's gotten the way it has...

    since you beat me to the posting of this Oldag

    here is what I propose, . We the 1911addicts forum BOYCOTT the Nfl and all its logo cra_

    take a stand. hit them in the wallet

    are you with the ghetto thug loving Nfl and BLM ? or are you in favor of law and order and the American way of life

    I just read that BOTH the Jag(offs) and Ravens took a knee in LONDON!!! what a disgrace these spoiled ghetto thug wanna bes are

    their "cause" is the end of the police shooting black thugs caught in the act. This "movement is directly Obamanations fault. rather than address the ghetto violence, lack of free education by its members and lack of family structure, they riot ,loot and protest the right way to live as a free American.Obamanation never called for this ONCE. He did call thugs his sons, the black his people and vilify the cops for doing their job

    Your choice--stand with Trump and decency or stand with thuggery

    I am giving the finger to these thugs--the Nba too

    The Left (Media, Hollywood, many Politicians) is at war with everything American or traditional, and for a few years now they've had their sights on the NFL. They underestimate how Pro-American NFL paying fans still are. If NFL League and team owners choose to play politics over football there will be a heavy financial price when the paying fans stop showing up in stadiums all across the country and stop buying season tickets.

    I have no issues with protests, it makes this country great, but DO NOT disrespect the flag and the million that have protected it, died for it and have lost limbs defending it and our way of life.

    If any athlete wants to go on ESPN, CNN, FOX, CNBC, MSNBC, Oprah, whatever and state their case God Bless, even in post-game and pre-game interviews, fine.

    BUT when OUR National Anthem is playing take your hat off and stand up straight.
