This NFL player made a threat that left patriotic football fans fuming

NFL players are reporting back to training camp this week for the new season.

The story of last season was many players’ choice to kneel during the national anthem – a move that cost the league dearly in ratings and ad revenue.

Now one pro bowl player made a threat that will leave patriotic football fans fuming.

Earlier this year the NFL made a rule that if players knelt during the national anthem teams would face fines.

Tennessee Titans defensive end Jurrell Casey had some choice words about the new policy. In an interview with CNN, Casey said:

“I’m gonna take a fine this year. Why not? I’m gonna protest during the flag. That’s what I’m gonna say now.

“I’m gonna take my fine. So it is what it is. I’m not going to let that stop me from doing what I want to do.”

After the interview dropped, Titans team president Steve Underwood said he would meet with Casey to discuss the rule.

ESPN reports:

The Titans are not upset with Casey and don’t plan to reprimand him, but they have not talked with him yet and want to get a full briefing of his thoughts on the matter.

The NFL’s new anthem policy puts teams in danger of being fined if a player does not “show respect” for the anthem, which includes an attempt to kneel or sit during the anthem. Those teams can fine players for their actions, if they choose, but it does not seem likely the Titans would go that route.

The new anthem policy, passed by owners in May, says players “must stand and show respect for the flag and anthem” or remain in the locker room.

The Titans owner is capitulating to his players’ unpatriotic demands despite a clear message from fans that they want players to respect the national anthem.

But fans cheered the Miami Dolphins when they instituted a team rule saying players who protested on the field during the national anthem could be suspended for up to four games.

The Dolphins didn’t want to get fined by the league for the disrespectful actions of its players and management wanted to show their fans they were serious about stopping the anthem protests.

But the NFL responded to the Dolphins by rescinding the initial rule forcing players to show respect or face fines.

The NFL continues to come down on the wrong side of this issue.

    The only thing the players will understand is a total boycott of NFL games. No fans, no pay. Their contracts should be written to read. ” as long as you respect the Anthem and the Flag, your contract will stay in force. You disrespect the Anthem and the Flag, your contract is null and void .” PERIOD!

  2. Texas Belle says:

    Who the heck does he think pays his salary? Without fans he would not have a job and the football leagues wouldn’t exist. If he wants to spit in the face of viewers by disrespecting the flag and this country, let him go somewhere else and play. I think people are plenty tired of all the whining and moaning about these players’ so called beefs. With all the money they make, their complaints fall on deaf ears; either straighten up and play or get off the field.

  3. Annie says:

    I am so sick of hearing about this. Stand up for the anthem and the flag and that’s it!

  4. I think a fine, is the starting point BUT! don’t stop there. This is not going to stop the many players, who already have it in their minds, that no one has the right to tell those Prim Madonna’s what to do. The answer is simple. Fire them, and tear up their contracts. No one needs their sh*t. Unbelievable that a bunch of muscle bound jocks who couldn’t make it through high school, let alone college, unless they played on a football scholarship, are going to call the shots and hold our country hostage, because they believe they are greater than the sum total of ‘we the people’.

  5. If Kaepernick was thrown off the team when he first tried this, there wouldn’t have been a problem today. It’s the league’s own doing that it is in crisis and rightly so.

    It’s not law breakers that cause lawlessness, it’s not enforcing the law that causes lawlessness.

  6. Wayne says:

    do to consequences beyond our control the NFL games scheduled for today has been canceled. In its place Mortal Combat will be shown.

    ps The NFL team and player have been fined several million dollars.

  7. Cacs says:

    Really they need to be fired!!! This will set an example. Maybe the fans should start demanding it!!!

  8. ONTIME says:

    If the NFL owners were intent on enforcing player contracts they would just tell the players Union to pound salt and enforce firing for failure to keep the contract in good faith…What kind of men let a player(employee) tell them how to run the company and why is it they are willing to destroy the lives of others by not enforcing contract rules…We the Fans come to see the game played, hear, stand and sing the Anthem and not be insulted by some sniveling clown wearing cleats and pads that works for us….These owners are either Americans or they are not but they are not biz people because they have commonsense enough not to PO their customers…..

  9. Donald VIZIER says:

    I will boycott NFL

  10. Beatrice says:

    I am so tired of the NFL…give me Soccer, Basket Ball, Baseball, Hockey. It is time we stop these people, rioting, marching, no kneeling,disrespecting our Vets, Flag, Country, and President. I will be subject to letting them earn any of my time or money. They want to resist…then we should do the same and resist them

  11. AJSegal says:

    Where else can you protest on your employers dime, and the employers encourage it? If I did that on ANY job I would get canned immediately. What makes these idiots so special?

    • ONTIME says:

      A government union and they cost us a hell of a lot more than a civil servant or elected politician should….Ban all the government unions as well..

  12. Fine them each time they take the knee, 5 time their out for the season, no pay!

  13. Jim Hughes says:

    What these “kneeling’ players are doing….
    Is hurting the young., new generation players contracts… $$$$$
    T.V. viewers down ,..attendance less..overall acceotance way down
    Are the player so dumb…that they don’t think their salaries will be effected

  14. Jim says:

    No fines, boot them out of the country. They are traitors. Send Roger Good for nothing and the owners with them. If there is any one left maybe they can hook on with the new league and play for much less.

  15. David says:

    Let’s all vow, and ask our friends to vow, to abstain from watching games played by any team whose player(s) disrespect the anthem and/or flag. In addition, refuse to buy products from sponsors of those games. I like pro football as much as the next fan, but I LOVE the USA.

    • jim says:

      As I have stated before,,,,No more NFL,,,NO MORE TV GAMES, DEFINETLY NO SPORTS MEMORABLIA , and COPPERNECK can encourage his FOLLOWERS into the sea, as the PIED PIPER did the RATS!!! YOU OVERPAID SPOILED BRATS DESERVE TO DROWN IN YOUR TEARS WHEN YOU SEE WHAT YOUR SPOILED ACTIONS PRODUCE!!!

    • Jeff says:

      The only way for us to push back is to not watch them or buy thier crap! They are All there for the money and the money is where we will hurt them the most! It is too bad too because there are players who do respect the Flag, Anthem and Country and they show it. It’s time they speak up!

      • george says:

        Just not watching will not do it,the fans should quit paying for those high prices and not go to games, when the stadiums are empty they may get the message

    • David Rose says:

      I really don’t care if they kneel when my National Anthem is being played, because I will have my back turned when their game is being played … just like I did last year!!! Hey advertisers if I were you I would look for programming where viewers were increasing, not leaving in droves.

  16. Victor Chamoun says:

    This fatass should be fired for his bullsht and the team owners should be fined 10 million dollars and put on probation for 5 years. If they don’t follow the rules the team should be dissolved. Enough is enough of these racist millionaires getting away with the hate their true master, Obama, has handed off to them!!!

    • Publius40 says:

      Neither I nor any member of my family watched a single NFL game. We didn’t go to a game, and no jerseys or anything associated with the NFL were purchased as Christmas or birthday gifts. We used to be big fans, and even today one of my greatest memories is meeting Vince Lombardi in New Orleans at Pat O’Briens in early 1960’s.

      Now there was a coach who wouldn’t put up with this foolishness.

  17. Ron Oswald says:

    I spent 32 years serving our country and stopped watching football when Mike Tomlinson the coach of the Steelers did not allow his whole team to come out last year. Most of their fellow players should call them out for kneeling. The owners need to grow a set of balls and suspend or fire players who don’t stand for the flag. I want to start a protest group in every NFL stadium parking lot to call out the players who kneel. I would like to see Congress pass a law protecting the flag against disrespect

    in communist countries they are forced to listen to communist propaganda in America they willingly listen to it

  19. Old Pioneer says:

    If they are so Damned special, these ungrateful, un-American, B**tards need to be put on the front line of every military action we are involved in where we’re fighting the ISIS B**tards where there is lots of action and be the ones who fight then pick up our BRAVE Military people who are injured or murdered in action !! The NFL I knew is DEAD as far as my family is concerned, NBA will be there too if they start the same crap!!! I am openly and actively writing to ever known sponsor of the NFL and telling them we’re boycotting their products!!!

  20. I feel if they cannot respect our national anthem, or flag, they need to move to another country. Buy, wait a moment other countries would not put up with them.
    Mem died in wars so these men would have the right to play football, and if they cannot respect that why, should we pay to watch them play ball? no more NFL

  21. David Czulewicz says:

    For those like me who have totally quit watching or listening to NFL games I have added the following:
    When watching the new, I immediately change stations when any talk of the NFL comes on. Get the media into the right side of this argument or just sit back and watch them lose money too.

  22. AJSegal says:

    I think every “special” and “protective” laws and rulings for ANY sport be terminated.
    These players are being paid by us, and yet they can tell us what they are going to do?
    That is ridiculous.

    These players are lucky enough to get paid millions of dollars, yet they behave like babies
    and don’t want to follow the rules. The owners are wimps, afraid of these babies. Is it any wonder why our country is in chaos, and needs to be straightened out by Trump?

    I think Vince McMahons league will be a bit hit, and the spoiled NFL players can just disappear.

  23. Joe says:

    The NFL can go to HELL!

  24. ssgt. luther w. lassiter-rvn-'66-'70 says:

    if any nfl player kneels they should be terminated on the spot..no exceptions!!

  25. Greg Douglas says:

    Use to luv and watch football. Not Anymore. Don’t have time for Millionaire players wallowing in their over-the-top claims of racism and wrapping themselves up in self-pity. If anything.. Football Players are privileged citizens who are paid WELL for what they do, and enjoy the Limelight, and recognition American’s gift them with. I would suggest the malcontents take their gripes OFF the field of play and take it to another window, on their OWN Time and OWN Dime and NOT on the fans. To do otherwise, will deplete the fan base and the NFC, AFC’s coffers. American football fans want to be entertained and not lectured to or subjected to a cadre of disgruntled, spoiled players who won’t stand and pay their respects to The country that gave them the opportunities to play Pro Ball… and make a nice living doing it. With No Apologies.

      They are disrespecting the soldiers n Veterans that served n died so they could have freedom if not we would be speaking japanese now

  26. George T Horvat says:

    “GIVE ME A BREAK?” Is this poll serious? Do you really think that these multi-millionaire jerks care about a couple thousand dollar fine? Here’s what the rule should be. (Any player who does not stand in silence with his hand over his heart while the National Anthem is being played should not be allowed to play in that game or be paid for it.)

  27. Jack says:

    Used to attend games and watch NFL games consistently.. Have NOT attended or watched a NFL game in the last two years: Have totally given up on those ungrateful, overpaid jerks. Boycott the NFL completely! If you still love football, watch college games – more exciting and fun! NFL and owners can kiss my ass!

  28. Tim says:

    We American’s need to band together and forget all about the NFL. These players are mostly Criminals, Rapists, Girl beaters and Drug abusers. They hate Our police (because they are Criminals) and they hate us American’s. Don’t support them again. Don’t watch.

  29. David Mangum says:

    Fire Them, N##### Felons League, Worthless Scumbag Traitors.

  30. Cacs says:

    Plain and simple:
    .Stand during Anthem
    .Stay inside
    .Fire them
    It is that simple as there are now thousands that do not watch games on TV, nor do they attend games.

  31. Ronald Sarson says:

    Cut any who don’t want to play by the rules. If those over paid babies don’t like this country, let them pick another one .There are plenty of guys who will be willing and able to play for a lot less.

  32. geo wilson says:

    These players are mostly a bunch of pampered young punks, barely out of their teens, making too much money for playing a game. It is part of their training that when they are pushed, they push back. They run their mouths and they talk a lot of smack. They are basically clueless about what kneeling for the flag, anthem bashing, actually means. They know that they get a lot of attention when they insult the flag. They think it is funny to insult, and even shoot at law enforcement. All this attention-getting has become an incentive for the players to act up in this manner. A bunch of rich kids playing at antifah!!!
    The owners don’t need a ruling from Roger Goodell to make a move against this kind of activity. It is simple – if you don’t stand for the flag, you don’t play. No camera time!!! No fines needed, no suspensions. No hiding in the locker room. You do not stand, your choice, you don’t play!!! See what kind of stones the owners have in the face of this kind of disrespect. Bench them!!! No respect for the flag, they do NOT play!!! This activity has become larger than the game. It is time for the owners to strand up, and take responsibility for the actions of their teams.
    So, if the owners won’t bench the kneelers, then we, the ex-viewers can start our own movement: on the second Sunday of the month, Turn off the NFL!!! If we can get everybody to turn off the NFL on every Second Sunday of the month, people will start to notice and get excited, an actual movement. Advertisers will take notice, and cash will not flow so freely to the NFL. That will be a major attention getter, and attitude adjuster. Pressure for the whole season – the NO NFL Sunday!!! Every month, for the whole season… That will be the citizens against the NFL. No courts, no judges, no Players Associations… just turn the MFers off! Every NO NFL Sunday. Get started, start spreading the word, get people excited about the idea, and get them to take action… not just talk about it. Turn off the NFL. Every second Sunday, turn off the NFL!!! Let’s go folks, No NFL Sunday!!! Tell your friends and neighbors, early and often. Tell them all about the NO NFL Sunday!!! Let’s get THIS part started!!! No NFL Sunday!!!

In no time at all, the prices tooka nose dive…… the same thing needs to happen now…! I have been a loyal fan for many years, long before these spoiled brats were ever born….they have the misguided idea that this country owes them something..! Well it doesn’t, they have no idea what the word FREEDOM means and that it isn’t FREE…. Millions of Loyal American Citizens paid for it with their lives so these disrespectful brats can get paid big bucks to play a game….SO LET IT BE KNOWN….. I AND ALL OF MY FRIENDS WILL NOT WATCH ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE SO CALLED PROFESSIONAL foot ball games….Pay attention sponsors, it is your livelihood following….

(I note that it was Goodell who decided to pay the scum off and put the league firmly on the side of the enemy.) After over 55 years of watching on Sundays, all I’ll now say is NEVER AGAIN!!

    Americans need to be doing something more useful with their time than watching a bunch of egotistical jerks pretending that what they do is important because, guess what, it isn’t. The American people need to put their time toward worthwhile endeavors rather than falling victim to the excesses of Rome which exist today for the same reason they did in Rome …to keep the people occupied with the stupidity of blood and drivel while our nation and money is in its death throes. …Just as was Rome. Basketball, Football, Nascar, it’s ALL but BS for Beer and Chips and the reality is it’s only meaningless drivel for the masses.

    Perhaps players like Jurrel Casey might look for other work, where they do not have to hear Our Anthem or see Our Flag.
    What about standing on the Street Corner in any Urban Paradise, selling drugs to another Bro, who hates Our Anthem & Our Flag?
    The Titans & their Weak Owner are both Losers, when they disrespect the Very Country that has made them Wealthy beyond their Urban Dreams.
    So Long NFL, Try Your Luck in Liberia, but Not in the USA!

  42. Gary says:

    If the players will not stand, they should be suspended for 3 games starting with that game without pay. The second time 6 game suspension, 3rd time for 1 year. 4th time, permenant expulsion from football.

  43. JHW says:

    What these black thugs need to learn is WE STAND FOR THE FLAG AND KNEEL FOR THE FALLEN. I will never watch these POS anti American football players again.

  44. Thomas Goss says:

    I am done with the NFL and the gutter rats that kneel during the national anthem. I haven’t watched in 2 years and I no longer buy products that advertise with the NFL.

They’ve lost a lot of the hand that feeds them. Yes true American Patriots. It has nothing to do our POTUS. We have minds of our own. With my husband being deployed right now service our country I am more so boycotting those spoiled rich football player that choose to disrespect our flag and our country that my husband and all our military stand for.

And I agree with you. Let’s send all the protesters to the Middle East where they can enjoy all the freedoms it offers.

      • Joeyounger says:

        What really galls me is that everyone of these silly little boys, from the QB, to the Field Goal kicker was probably sent to a 4/year College on the tax payers dime(Scholarships and Grants for Football, or other sports are paid for by the taxpayer) and they are really, just taking up space meaninglessly, that could otherwise be used to send people who really did want an education but couldn’t afford it…Let’s face it, the World would not fall apart if the Jurrell Casey’s , Tom Brady’s, or Colin Kaepernicks didn’t play football on Sunday, for 16/weeks of the year. Their jobs DO NOT contribute anything of value, or necessity, vital to any Americans life. In fact even as entertainment, it is sorely lacking in intrinsic value or moral terpitude. As the majority of the people on here have stated, your lives are just as happy now that you have tuned out football completely from your lives. Further reinforcing my point of the almost total uselessness of these BOYS. It is evident from their attitudes, that they are failures as ethical role models for any of our children. And, evidenced by the attitudes of the young men who are no longer filling the stadiums, in Colleges all across the country, it goes to reason, that the sport is loosing its competitive edge that it used to have for the best, and talented. We need to Voice our displeasure at the NFL, by perhaps not recognizing it’s accomplishments(perhaps not cheering or recognizing a TD, or game winning FG) by turning our heads, or simply keeping quiet. We know that these BOYS have an inate and deeply ingrained need for attention, perhaps it is time that THEY experience a fans “kneeling” in protest of their kneeling!

These acts are hateful in intent and catastrophic in their consequences and will turn out very badly.

    After reading these comments, I started thinking about the football hero’s of years gone by. Joe Namath, Fran Tarkington, Lou Gehrig and so many more. Even not very long ago there were hero’s in the NFL and AFL. Many of them are gone but many are still with us. I have to think that they must be sad and very unhappy with the current players and the lack of their willingness to show respect for those who fought to keep America free. It would be nice to see the football hero’s still with us to voice their opinion and call for action against the brainless whiney boys who consider themselves cute or relevant in todays world. Shame on them!!

  59. StarKiller says:

    I say fire him or send him back to prison because he probably beat on his wife & got away with it because of who he is, a spoiled rich NFL player that the owners ignored his crimes, so he could play for them. Got off your damn knees & play the child’s game that you get paid millions for. The rest of the country works hard for the simple income that they receive to provide for their families. Jurrell Casey I don’t know who you are but I bet your nothing special. There are a lot of other brain dead players waiting in line to play when your gone. Which is where you would be if I owned the team. Quit kneeling & do what your getting paid to do. A lot of people protest what they believe in & none of them get paid for it. I say collect your last check & go join them on the street corner you bum

  60. Marlene says:

    The NFL? Are they still around? I don’t watch the National Felons League any more. Haven’t for two years.

  61. If fans would stick together and not attend or watch their games, we could really bring them to their knees. However, there are not many patriots left in our country.

    • Robert, You are SO DAMN right! DO NOT TALK the CRAP, DO IT! If the Tampa Bay Bucs supports useless people like this at anytime and JUST FINES them, then I want to organize a BIG BON FIRE at RayJay Stadium (which is actually owned by us, the TAXPAYERS) and BURN every NFL paraphernalia that we can get and pile it on! DO NOT PUSH IT! NO MORE NFL for me, either and I feel just fine! I am a Veteran and I get upset with punks like this in MY Country!

  62. Jerry Skinner says:

    Mr. Casey
    You live and work in a privileged place where young men with talent can play games and make many times the incomes of those who pay to watch. Also many times the income of many who died in ditches, fields, rocky tops and rice paddies so that your freedom was assured. You are stupid, shortsided and ungrateful. Take some of that money that you are willing to waste on fines and invest in human rights organizations, racial equality groups and social justice causes that will make America stronger. Give your energy to actual work, your job gives you that luxury.
    Demonstrate some intelligence, kneeling is for prayers, not for fighting for fairness.
    What you are doing is childish. Respect the price that was paid so you have the right to be childish and the right to make a great nation even better. Do not just be a football player, be a man.

  63. That’s okay. There is a good likelihood that soon after he retires he will be dead broke and expect the government that he wants to disrespect to support him.

  64. Jean Forbes says:

    Fire him now. Better still, take this idiot to Pearl Harbor and look at the memorial to all the young boys who gave up their lives so this ungrateful idiot can get all the privileges he enjoys with the NFL. What a loser!

    Need to put two snipers at each game, on opposite sidelines on th upper seats, and shoot ANYONE who decides to kneel at the anthem. we would son be without anyone wanting to kneel.

    • Kathleen Thompson says:

      Hey you go guy.

    • Terry, that is a GREAT IDEA, but in this country anymore, we had an ex-con go into a small family store, walked out with 3 cases of beer and the son of the owner, who was tired of these people ripping them off and they are working 18 hours a day to maintain a living and NOW that young man is sitting in jail! WHAT A GREAT AMERICA SOCIETY has become!

  69. Paul Heyden says:

    BTW, those stating that these morons have a Constitutional right to protest? I beg to differ. Once they are on the ‘CLOCK’ , like REAL working Americans, they must abide by the workplace rules. If they can’t do that voluntarily, they should be fired. Many of them are full of hate because they’ve been taught to hate for no reason.

  70. the flag and anthem stand for our warriors and troops deployed in battle zones ,not some stupid BLM or racist hogwash ,kneel and get fined twice the normal amount each time you do this stupid act of black racism ,go and play football in Canada or the soviet union see how much they pay your fat dumb ass .mostly black city raised players doing this crap ,resign and join the marine corps get some respect for the flag and national anthem ,kneel and lose your fat pay check and perks.

  71. T Munson 15 says:

    By and large, football players are not the most cerebral people on the planet… But that especially applies on the defensive side of the ball…. I haven’t watch the NFL the last two seasons and I don’t anticipate that changing anytime soon

  72. Kimball Romney says:

    There should be a clause in each NFL, player, coach, anyone connected with the NFL, that is they protest, take any action, that is unpatriotic the contract is terminated and so are they.

  73. Rick says:

    Love the sport but will not watch any NFL game, buy any product promoting the NFL, normally go to at least 1 live game costing me nearly $1000.00 for tickets, hotel and food, Not going to happen until they purge this trash from the league. If they do not like this country let them leave, they will never find another country that pays it’s entertainers as well as the USA. That is all they are is entertainers like Big Bird , Bozo, and Pee Wee Herman.

    • Parduc says:

      Try watching soccer, it is 90+ minutes of action in 2 hours, compare with 15 minutes of action in 3 hours in an NFL game.

      • Jan13 says:

        soccer is a great sport, players definitely need stamina to play a game.
        With the younger generation ditching football because of possible long term brain issues, don’t think it will be much longer before football is passé.

  74. Paul Heyden says:

    These anti-American clowns have received a free education and God only knows how much under the table more. Most have never worked a day in their lives. They are pissing off the people who pay their way – no, not the owners, THE FANS. What I propose to the NFL is to fire assholes like this Ubangi speaking asshole. We the fans proved one very important thing last year and that was we have power. I boycotted the NFL (Negro Fool League) and will continue to do so this season. It didn’t kill me, I’m still alive. I only need to know who the sponsors are so I can boycott them too.

  75. Luis Uribe says:

    As has been said “It’s their right because it’s protected by the constitution”, true. But it also our right not participate. Not to watch on any screen, not go to any game, not buy any tickets, not buy any of their sponsers products, or their team merchandice ( which is highly overpriced anyway and not even made in this country). Boycott the NFL, the teams, sponsers. We the people can put a stop to this “me” attitude. Stop and think what happens to this entertaiment group, it only exists because of us. Enough of “us”, can and will cause a proper atittude adjustment

  76. N says:

    Get off the corrupted to the core NAZI Demoncrat Communist plantation treasonous party (RINOs too!!!) and on the Trump train to success!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  77. Peter Pshyk says:

    These nigga pigs are no better than their brothers ans sisters who do not respect the country they live in the rioters looters destructors of others property block highways The best solution for this problem is keep the retarded bastards in the lockerroom untill after the anthem has finished

    • Jhn says:

      Why not leave them in the locker room for the whole game and deduct pay for that game. Those ignorant idiots would get smart in about one game and the crap they are trying to pull would be history. They hate America but they sure like our money and the lifestyle they are afforded by the multimillion dollars they get for playing in the USA!

  78. Phil Bloom says:

    Football is entertainment. We pay money to attend games, we pay money to purchase team paraphanalia, like jerseys, jackets, mugs, hats and so on. This is not the place to protest against anything, they need to keep their personal and political feelings under the helmet. Most especially though, they have been given the opportunity to play a game that pays them very well. That opportunity comes from a large number of their fans who have served in our military, whether it is the Army, Navy, Marines, Air Force, or Coast Guard, We live in the greatest country in the world, nothing is perfect, and defacing the men and women that try to protect us so we can fly the flag of this great country is discraceful.

    • Stacey Ryder says:

      THE NFL PLAYERS JOBS ARE TO PLAY FOOTBALL & THEY GET A SALARY!! EVERYONE HAS A JOB THAT HAS BENEFITS & WE CAN STRIKE IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE WORK ENVIRONMENT! WELL IN TODAY’S WORLD OF THE NFL, A LARGE MAJORITY OF THE PLAYERS ARE BLACK & THEY DO A LOT OF “WORK” BOTH ON THE FIELD & OFF THE FIELD FOR MANY DIFFERENT CHARITIES & ORGANIZATIONS WHERE THEY DONATE MONEY OR PARTS OF “THEIR SALARY” ! THE PLAYERS DO MORE FOR CHARITIES THAT BENEFIT THE MEDICAL FIELD & SICK PATIENTS THEN THE “EVERYDAY JOE” ! IF THE PLAYERS GIVE “THEIR TIME & HARD-EARNED MONEY” THEY SHOULD BE ABLE TO “KNEEL IN SILENT PROTEST” THE INJUSTICE THE YOUNG BLACK AMERICAN MAN–SOMETIMES UNARMED–BY LAW ENFORCEMENT WHO SEEM TO USUALLY “SHOOT TO KILL” TOO OFTEN FOR THE WRONG REASON & THE WRONG PERSON IS KILLED/MURDERED BEFORE THEY KNOW THE REASON WHY!! IF THEY ARE SHOT & KILLED, THERE IS A MAJOR PROBLEM “ATTEMPTING” TO FIND OUT WHO/WHY/WHEN/HOW WHEN THE PERSON IS DEAD! THE NFL PLAYERS ARE “FIGHTING FOR THE LIVES OF THE BLACK AMERICAN MAN & THEIR FREEDOM OF FREE SPEECH & THE RIGHT TO PROTEST!! THEY ARE PROTESTING IN A QUIET, CALM & DIGNIFIED WAY INSTEAD OF RAISING A CLOSED FIST, MAKING NOISE OR OBSCENE GESTURES DURING THE PLAYING OF NATIONAL ANTHEM BECAUSE IT IS A LARGE PROBLEM ALL OVER THE USA & EVEN SOME OTHER COUNTRIES TOO!! PUTTING FINES OR SUSPENSION FROM “THEIR JOB” JUST KEEPS “PUSHING THE ISSUE TO THE BACK BURNER” HOPING THE PLAYERS WILL GIVE UP BUT THEY ARE DOING THE RIGHT THING TO KEEP THE ISSUE “FRONT & CENTER” BECAUSE #45 HAS USED HIS “POLITICAL STAGE” TO TRY & “SCARE OR PUT THEIR OCCUPATION” IN JEOPARDY! SOME OF THEM ALREADY KNOW THE TRIALS & TRIBULATIONS OF STRUGGLE FRIM THEIR UPBRINGING, NEIGHBORHOODS WHERE THEY LIVED, NOW LIVE OR FAMILIES LIKE THEM STILL STRUGGLE TO “GET OUT” OF TERRIBLE CIRCUMSTANCES & LEAD A BETTER LIFE FOR THEIR FUTURE CHILDREN & FAMILIES”!! THE PLAYERS ARE USING THEIR “WORKPLACE” OF THE FOOTBALL FIELD AS A STAGE TO MAKE ALL AMERICA SEE, UNDERSTAND & WANT TO CHANGE THE INJUSTICE OF BLACK AMERICANS BEING “PROFILED” AS CRIMINALS RATHER THAN HUMAN BEINGS THAT ARE ONLY A DIFFERENT SKIN COLOR & NOT A “SECOND CLASS CITIZEN”–ALL CREATED EQUAL NO MATTER THE COLOR OF SKIN, MALE/FEMALE, RICH/POOR OR BLACK/WHITE!! ALL EQUAL BECAUSE WE ARE ALL HUMAN BEINGS LIVING IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA & ENJOY FOOTBALL!

      • Janet says:

        What a crock! God bless America and those who have defended it and made it the wonderful nation it is!

      • BillyKidd says:

        If they really want to make a difference, an HONEST attempt, retire from the game and apply for employment as a peace officer or public servant…If they really believe there is injustice, DO SOMETHING REAL ABOUT IT!!! Millions like me have done it so what makes them so much better!? You and others speak of a “platform”…What platform…The cast majority have done NOTHING in life to be truly proud of and to make a difference…Their “charities” are a farce and self-serving as they are tax shelters advised by their agents and a way around the system…And, the vast majority of workplaces today have clauses and will fire you without reservation for making a political or insensitive statement while at work or in public, PERIOD!!! The fact that a greedy bunch of players and owners won’t enforce their own rules and policies and force their views down my throat to make a buck is why I’ve chosen to withdraw my support…What so you think would happen if I were to hold the spectatorship hostage by blocking entrance PEACEFULLY to a sports venue or stadium? I would be arrested and yet they hold millions hostage every Sunday and are lauded for “their cause”…They are laughing at the American people all the way to the bank every single day because”they made it” and only a handful of them ever really experienced true hardship…BTW, statistically, more white dudes are harassed, shot, and killed on the streets by peace officers within our country today than are those of color. Hardship is NOT racially exclusive…

        • Rick Bohan says:

          One reason most of these players can’t get another job because they are not smart enough to. Some of them can barely speak where they can be understood. I bet half of them can barely write, or read they have to have someone else read things to them.

      • Jhn says:

        I will not pretend to unequivocally know about the actions of these morally bankrupt rich boys, but I do have a good grasp of the human mind. Having said that, I would say with a fair amount of certainty that if you separated the benevolent players and the players who give little or no time or money for the betterment of society, you would be hard pressed to find the micro-brained protesters in the benevolent camp. You may see them blocking traffic or crying about abuse of black people but not really concerned enough to actually do something to help. I may add that protesting in today’s society is nothing more than paid uneducated idiots damaging other peoples property , restricting our ability to freely move around by blocking streets and highways, physically attacking those who don’t agree with them and stealing anything they can. All being done at the behest of people like Obama, his race baiters and the rich America haters like Soros. If Obama and Soros disappeared the rioters AKA protesters would also be gone.

      • Karen says:

        They are paid millions to PLAY FOOTBALL,not protest durning WORKING HOURS. If they wish to protest fine,after work. They have become goons. They have all been to collage and can not speak English. They are spoiled boys who want everything. The owners are chickens and not leaders. These guys need to use their crazy salaries to help communities. I hate football now.

      • Kathleen Thompson says:

        Who are you Stacey? What a crock. You are obviously as ignorant as these protesters. I appreciate your right to voice such an idiotic comment but you need to have some respect for this country and the people who died giving you that right. Why don’t you go with them to the Middle East.

      • truckman says:

        you are as full of it as the players are

      • Phil B. says:

        This is becoming something skirting on self indulging, hateful behavior. What next? There are plenty of things that other groups of people can protest about, but , how many can stand in front of cameras every weekend and be seen by millions of people who have tuned in to be entertained by a venue they support. We all have the right to agree to disagree. We have the right of freedom of speech, we don’t have the right to cram our view points down the throats of those not wanting to hear it or see it everytime we tune in to be entertained. We have the right to protest publically because of neighborhood blight, poor city services, abortion, poor streets, schools closing, and so on and so on. There is a place and time to do that, you can apply for a permit to hold a public assembly and let people know when the gathering will take place, you can even get television coverage for those gatherings. Think of this, when NFL games are televised they are also seen by our troops both within our shores and abroad in foreign countries, including war torn locations, where our military personnel are risking their lives for the flag. That same flag that flies at all sporting events. I remember what President John F. Kennedy said, “Ask not what your country can do for you, but, what you can do for your country”. Be selfless not selfish, become more active in the cure instead of instigating a problem. Become more active in your church and it’s efforts in the neighborhood, than watch as God stirs the hearts of the people. It all starts at home then the neighborhood, then the city, then the county, then the state, then the country. May God Bless America.

      • Stacey, are you on drugs from these same neighborhoods or what? There have been many Black Football Players who have made a great contribution to American Society and they do not look at the “poor black man”. They have done it by restaurants, private schools, churches, special organizations, where they were not compromised by drugs or crime, but the fact that they were men! We have served with men of color in the Armed Services and we did not look at the color of skin, we looked who was under that skin. Do not bring your hate to the football field, where we PAY you to play football and IF you cannot HONOR ALL of the Fallen and disabled and all veterans and living service personal, DO NOT SHOW UP! We will do like the smarter Democrats have started doing, WE WILL WALK AWAY! Then you can clinch your fist take a knee or go pound your pud, BUT DO IT ON YOUR TIME! Good Bye, NFL!!

      • Joeyounger says:

        1. The NFL players job is to play football that they are reimbursed with a salary for…not kneel and protest while they are working(on the JOB)…
        2. Their TIME to strike is when they are not receiving any compensation(or enough compensation for the JOB they are supposed to be doing…
        3. The fact that they do more(and I certainly DO NOT agree with you) in your opinion for the Medical fields, and the sick, is because they are being given(given, free of charge)media airtime that the “everyday Joe” isn’t going to get…maybe they should “kneel” then, and say a prayer for all of those young Black men who are being abused by the Law Enforcement Community…
        4. You honestly think that disrespecting, and sullying the Image of our Flag, and the warriors who gave them the right, but not the excuse, to kneel is not “raising their fist in an obscene gesture” or purposely ignoring the fact that they are enraging the Majority of people here in the United States is a “calm and dignified” way of Protest?
        5. The President is using his “stage” to express to theses BOYS that their actions will!have far reaching consequences, perhaps in the future for them, when they are no longer able to play football…
        6. Using your “work place” as a stage for personal “business” is not a strong suit in a Capitalist Country…it can have some dire consequences, some time tragic.
        7. The fact that Blacks are being racially “profiled” is probably( certainly not always)because of their resistance to being detained, and stopped…I have not seen a single solitary incident(although I’m almost sure there are) of a Black being detained that in some way didn’t provoke a confrontation to escalate into violence, or a fatal shooting.
        8. It is my fervent belief that #44 could have done more to relieve the divisiveness, and the resentful attitude toward the Law Enforcement Community in its dealings with young Black men…instead he chose to victimize almost to a man every Black shooting, instead of giving the situation time to resolve itself…
        Skin color, eye shape, and the fact that someone worships a doorknob, have always been things that have been issues, in some way or other with Americans…the Chinese, the Irish, and the Muslim Communities have also suffered “racial profiling” in their time…but with patience and fortitude, and a belief that we all makes mistakes, and need forgiveness, is NOT an excuse for anti-American behaviour…JMHO

      • Mary says:

        I did not hear you comment about the beautiful little black child in Baltimore who just died because she was shot by some thug still on the loose. Our policemen have to be shot before they can shoot back. Wake up idiot and admit who is doing tje killing

  79. ROBERTA KELLY says:

    I hope NO ONE at all will watch ANY NFL football games. Totally unamerican and for the kind of money they make they should appreciate our country.

  80. John A Cramer says:

    Where else but America can someone earn millions just to play a game? We are the ones who pay them. If they don’t do the right thing they should be banned for life.

    • Jhn says:

      John, you may be one of the. “We”, but I am not one of them. I will never even look at a football game or sports article about the NFL or AFL as long as the players keep up their idiocy and do not apologize to those who have fathers, mothers, sisters, brothers, children or friends who have fought for our liberties, many of whom suffer daily for their patriotic actions, and some who lost their lives for us. I know what you meant and I thank you for your disdain for the actions of those who think they are so cool for protesting. Protesting and illegal actions are NOT progressive, using the word the democrats proclaim themselves to be, which is a false impression of their actions and words. Instead of protesting they need to stay at home and maybe invite a needy person into their homes and lives.

  81. Marlene says:

    Those that kneel or go to locker rooms should have a hefty fine or sit out more then the 4 games mentioned. Actually now I think they should be fired for not respecting the US Flag. Shame on you doing that it is not about police brutality it’s abut you being crazy. I hope you have no one in the stands after the first idiot kneels or disrespects the flag that so many have died for. How many of you served in the military? None ?

  82. Doug says:

    Hey Dumb Ass! Reality Check. The Flag does not stand for aledged police brutality on blacks. It represents America and the Freedoms that so many Americana have and are serving and fighting to preserve. Especially the many whom have paid the supreme sacacrifice that all Americans can live in the Land of the Free. All players who take a knee show hate for All Americans and those who have sacrificed. You should be banned from all sports, and all Americans should turn the tv off and spend time with family and friend that help Make America Great Again for All The People!

    • Old Sailor says:

      I agree Doug. Police brutality has nothing to do with the flag or the National Anthem. These players act like the brutality is supported by the law. It isn’t! I’m a vet (23.5 years active duty) with a son who is a police officer. I’m all for those (I won’t call them police officers) brutalizing others being prosecuted to the fullest extent. I’m glad to see many of them going before a jury lately, but I’m still dismayed at the number that get off for various reasons when it is as plain as day they are guilty. Many should have been weeded out long before they were ever allowed to put on a badge.
      I think they should be tested for steroid use, which could be causing “roid” rage. I’ve seen the size of some officers and know full well there is no way they could have gotten that big without steroids. I’ve worked out my entire adult life, with weights, sports and martial arts, and their biceps are the size of my thighs. That ain’t right!

      • Mary says:

        There is no excuse for
        Disrespecting the flag or the athem. Ask your son about some
        Of the abuse police officers endur. Maybe some day you will need
        A cop with those big biceps to save your A.

  83. Cyn says:

    IMO, if they care naught for the flag and anthem that represents this country, they should be PERMANENTLY suspended and encouraged to move OUT of this country to one that will best suit their ideology. These morons forget, they need the fans much more than the fans need them and the same goes for the team owner/s.

  84. Janusz says:

    The biggest problem is press. They should never give attention to this stupid guy. This is what NFL player wanted.
    Second ,he should be thrown out of the team. He embarrassed all entire team .

  85. J.L. says:

    As we all can see the NFL against the the TRUE AMERICANS. Football is no longer the AMERICAS game, what a shame. All because NFL doesn’t know how to implement and enforce what they implement. The league needs to be called the SO CALLED elitist league. What relay is shame are all the athletes that don’t agree with all the BULL that these So Called Elites continue to display. Go France GO FIFA This year I had the pleasure of watching the world cup so much more professional than NFL. I always thought that the NFL would be a world leader in sports NOT ANYMORE WHAT A JOKE. Highly embarrassing to the true AMERICAN people. I am as American as you can get, I USED to even support America’s team Dallas COWBOYS. Never Again, What a joke from the top. World Cup is the way to go. Such much pride and respect for their countries. NO MORE N.F.L. They truly do NOT have their acts together. Such simple decision making but unable to pull the trigger. No wonder the NFL is losing every year. Imagine what it could be if all the nonsense was eliminated. uch a waste because of true ignorance. WOW Just unbelievable what this country has allowed to happen and has become because of the lack of enforcing rules. Ass-backwards. I am so ashamed of you folks but I know you don’t care and that is the whole problem, lack of concern and for sure terrible judgments for years.

    • Laurel says:

      I am no fan of sports and cannot bear to watch football. So perhaps my opinion won’t count for much.But I recognize the disrespect of this controversy and those who equate disrespect with freedom of speech. Since they will never ever recognize the beauty of what they are disrespecting is it wrong to no longer play the anthem at games? Why allow them to continue at all? In a way it enables their BS to give them the stage for shi–ing on America with every game

  86. William E. Smith says:

    All unpatriotic kneelers should be escorted outside the stadium where they can protest to their heart’s content as guaranteed by those who fought for their right to do so. No doubt, they will be joined by other protestors and probably encouraged not to play by their fellow protestors. Maybe they could prevent others from entering the stands to watch the game that would also be a freedom that was fought for. If you are going to protest, GO BIG.

    • Joeyounger says:

      Its been proposed by several Conservative Legal groups, that since the American Taxpayer is being charged for the building, maintenance, and upkeep of these Professional Sports Stadiums, that legal charges for “reckless behaviour” be levied against those kneeling, or protesting in any other manner. It is the same charge that you get for spitting on the sidewalk, or jaywalking, but it does require you to be presented for court!! Perhaps if these “protesters” are required to present themselves to a court, the Principle of the matter might occur to them finally!!! Who knows?

  87. jdw says:

    Why do we continue to support professional ball players! WE pay their salary, no one else! I do not support them. I do not watch the games, I do not buy over-priced junk and I do not patronize their sponsors. So, what are you going to do, read this article and then bitch? Does football mean that much to you? Take the money you waste on these ungrateful self-centered over-paid creatins and invest into the kids in your neighborhood.

  88. From the start they should have warned all players. You stand for the flag, and anthem, or you will be shipped out no matter how good you are as a player. This is not a political rally. Its a sporting event and absolutely no political preferences are to be shown. Win, lose, or draw, you follow the rules or out you go.

  89. Al says:

    This is all getting entirety to much press. It is and always has been a work place issue. Owners need to show resolve, set up their rules for the work place and then enforce them. Stand or go find some place else to work.

    • JH says:

      The rules were in place before this BS started. The owners just didn’t have the spine to do anything. NFL – No Freaking Longer!

  91. Kathy says:

    No one is irreplaceable. Fire him!

  92. NFL-NO FANS LEFT!!! NFL players you can protest are fag if you want, but we, the American people, can protest to by not buying tickets to the NFL or watching it on TV and them who is going to pay your salaries, if the NFL owners go bankrupt by lack of fans?? Folks, we control the money for their salaries, so let’s show them who is boss, NFL fans are!!! I put my life on the line in the Vietnam War and now have a 90% disability because of that American flag and if they asked me to do it again I would and not disgrace that flag like you, the NFL players do today!! Shame on all of you for disgracing it!!!…..

    • ASC says:

      According to a 6/27/18 article in the Tennessean, Titans fans are dead last in the NFL. I can understand why with this type of lack of understanding of how their fans feel about issues. The NFL and their players are tone deaf about who REALLY pay their bills. One day the chickens are come home to roost.

  93. William says:

    I want everyone to understand that Mr Casey has Every Right to Protest. However, neither Mr Casey nor any Member of the NFL do not have the right to select the consequences of their protest(s). Yes, the NFL may fine him, but we the NFL Viewing Customers have also decided to give them our consequences for their Disrespectful Protest(s). These consequences for these Protests will include, but not be limited to; Not Attending ANY NFL Games, Watching ANY NFL Games on Television, Listening to ANY NFL Games on the Radio, Not Purchasing ANY NFL Merchandise and NOT supporting ANY NFL Sponsors. If the NFL thinks the 2017 was a Financial Disappointment, just wait until the 2018 Season!

  94. Ron says:

    I do believe these ungrateful bottom feeders have a right to express their opinion. That being said, I am sick and tired of these over paid prima donnas disrespecting and showing contempt for the only nation on this planet that gave them the opportunity to BE overpaid prima donnas. Since they find this nation to be so onerous I suggest they leave America and move to some nation more to their liking! There is no Berlin Wall with armed guards keeping their sorry butts here! GO! America will do just fine without you! Meantime, I have no use for the NFL!

  97. Stanley says:

    These people are scum. Anybody who doesn’t respect our flag and our country is scum. That’s why we need a draft. All 18 year Olds should have to spend at least two years in the military to teach them what our flag stands for. Parents send them to school and college where they’re taught to be disrespectful, disobedient, and unpatriotic. And then wonder why they’re like they are.
    Anybody who would go to, or watch one of their crap games are just as unpatriotic as they are. NO FOOLBALL FOR ME.

  98. Mikey says:

    Goodall is trying to have it both ways: appease both the players and the fans. Well, he is denial if he thinks that will work. Another upcoming boycott season for this household.

  99. thoughtful one says:

    You guys define what YOU consider “patriotic” then want people penalized it they don’t follow it. That is like the “freedom of speech” where you penalize or fire someone for saying something you don’t like. In churches, kneeling shows a sign of reverence and honor (to God). How would you like it if you were penalized or fired for what doing what YOU consider patriotic?

    • JH says:

      You are mixing, as they say, apples and oranges. They are doing this at their place of employment while they are working. They have, and had, a rule in place where they were required to stand during the national anthem,. Which they are violating.

      The Supreme Court has ruled on this and sold that your first amendment rights DO NOT APPLY at your place of employment.

      I support their right to protest, but it can be done before or after the game. With all of the bleeding heart media types clamoring for ANY news, I am sure they will be happy to broadcast it. We just don’t have to watch.

  100. Kathy says:

    To show no respect for the men and women who has,given them the opportunity to be where they are and be safe is so disrespectful. If they aren’t proud of this country, they need to leave. They need a reality check, No more Football for them.

  101. Merrick Ales says:

    I don’t care what they do ever since the spoiled brat that started this I’ve stopped watching professional football season even if it’s on someone else’s television

  102. Donny says:

    Just want a reason to go against anything white. There are good and bad in all races.They seem to want to take the easy path against any thing that doesn’t go there way . They believe they are royalty through football. Maybe at one time we would give respect where respect was due. Now ,that has been wasted.

  103. ROBERT Rose Sr says:

    As American’s they have a right to protest! As a member of a NFL team they are hired by a organization to do a job, If the organization feels or dislikes what that employee is doing he has the right to fire that individual END OF STORY! So why blame a bunch of spoiled babies for getting their way! Owners stand up for this great Nation and fire their asses. AMERICA boycott any company’s that supports a team that hires a person who has been fired for such a violation!
    I love the game of football but I love my Country more, and honor those that serve under her flag.

    • jim says:

      I totally agree that the game has become corrupted by a few MUSCLEHEADS that think that they can insult the flag of the USA, without some comeback! I quit watching football completely when COPPERHEAD started this thing and SUCKED OTHERS INTO HIS INFANTILE ACTION! This country is the BEST in the WORLD, which is why people are taking their EVERYTHING, children included, and WALKING towards the southern border. The footballers have reached a point in their lives where they could be doing something POSITIVE in AMERICA, and showing the WORLD how appreciative they are for the BLESSINGS that they enjoy, by sharing their GRATITUDE and giving 10% of their blessings with those less fortunate. I have only heard of a couple of players that have stepped up and aided people during crises in their lives. PLUS,,,,,,IT WOULD BE A TAX WRITE-OFF for them and reduce their debt to the IRS in the year of the donation.
      GITTERDONE DAMMIT!!!

  104. Gary says:

    I don’t care what team it is if I see one team member from any team then I penalize all teams. I will refuse to watch any game from that point on. Even if its a steelers game. Yes I am a die hard steeler fan but if any one kneels then he is no a real man he is a whining cry baby that deserves to haves ass kicked out of football and out of the USA.

  105. Joann says:

    We’ve already changed to college games. No more NFL at our house. My husband is Korean vet and is furious about this mess.

  106. Fr Tom Martin says:

    They should be dropped from the team. The others would fall in line real fast. They do not want to loose money for their lavish life

  107. Mike S says:

    Up until last year, I hadn’t missed watching NFL games for 45 years. After the last year’s first game (where I had tickets) I never watched or went to another game including the Super Bowl.. I found other things to do on Sunday afternoons and soon discovered I didn’t miss it that much. Unless the NFL stops ALL protesting this Vietnam era vet will boycott this year as well since the NFL hasn’t learned to not anger it’s fans.

    By the way, I’ve discovered college football more exciting anyway.

  108. Mike Baumgartner says:

    I think the kneeling players are all suffering concussions & brain damage. Football should go the way of the dinosaur. World Cup Soccer should be it’s replacement. The ball is in our court.

  109. Kenneth H. Frazier says:

    Require these low life’s to spend a least a year in military service before they are qualified to play. If this doesn’t, work correct their actions by firing their butts.

  110. Bob Hunt says:

    Man, talk about biting the hand that feeds you, if the so called Commissioner cannot or will not stop these overpaid undereducated children from taking a knee when the National Anthem is played lets say goodbye to the NFL! At any rate there will never be another NFL event shown on my TV!

  111. Tasine says:

    In truth, I’d RATHER SEE THEM FIRED if they insist on dissing America, and if possible deported to some nation they could find happiness in.

  112. tom matt says:

    Why not solicit Collage Football to play on Sunday times & see the ratings..

    • Robert Ewing says:

      Send this idiot back to da hood. He got lots of money to pay da fine, and plenny left over for his wheels and ho. He can do whatever he want; but be intelligent and a productive human being. That he will never do.

  113. Mike says:

    Most of those taking a Knee are lucky they made it through High School much less collage Listen to them speak. You’ed think they were Illegals except for their Ebonics.

  114. So da ‘666nigga666’ gonna bite the hand that feeds him. NFL will lose another 25% of their viewers.

  115. Richard Elliott says:

    Go ahead and end up the same as Kaepernick and Reid. It’s worked out really well for them. You only have a finite time to make this kind of money but go ahead and throw it away. It’s your right!

    • Sandra Tyler says:

      This is very sad, he should put the uniform of our vets & go too a war zone!! Wheremany have gave their lives like many of our troops!
      He can say he has the right , that’s true but
      He disrespects the fallen that paid for his freedom& ability too play this”Game””! His game is pay for profit & no bullets flying at him!! This has become a sad state when people act this way , with so much disrespect !! Our family has had 5 brothers in the wars , ww#2, Korean War this Brother was shot 2 Times , & revive the Purple Heart , 3 others served in VietNam a couple did 2 tours!! They came home but with inner wounds!! I wish
      People who think like this guy too put the uniform on & send a week or more with our soldiers , too get real experience & know what really counts!!💔💔💔🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸

  116. Richard Hennessy says:

    Fined? They should be dismissed for not complying with team rules and blatant disregard for employer instructions. We would be fired for not complying with work rules and disregarding employer instructions.

  117. John B Rushing says:

    There is lots of Collge Football to watch‼️‼️Boycott the NFL gets it right❤️‼️No politics just FOOTBALL ‼️‼️Not going to waste my time with these CLOWNS ‼️‼️Starting with the over paid Commissioner to the lowest paid ball boy ‼️‼️❤️

  118. David says:

    America, love it or leave it. Now there’s a challenge for all you commie bone head bastards……hurry…….just go !

  119. John Barnett says:

    Owners make the rule they stand or be fired. Period. They,can protest on their own time Jerks think 🤔 they have a right not to stand no respect ✊ many people,gave up their. Lives defending that flag. So they can make their millions

  120. ron kasner says:

    if they want to protest, do it right, get a placard and walk back forth
    at the police station and see what happens! better yet kneel down at
    a miltary parade and see what happens, you will wake up in a dental chair!

    • JERRY K says:

      HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. . .. I LUV IT. PEOPLE SPIT AT ME AND CALLED ME NAMES WHEN I WAS WALKING THROUGH THE AIRPORT AT MY HOME IN MEMPHIS. THIS VET DAMN SURE DOESN’T HAVE TO WATCH ANY OF THESE UNGRATEFUL BASTARDS ANYMORE. I’M KISSING 50 YEARS OF WATCHING FOOTBALL DOWN THE DRAIN. I TOOK IT ONCE BUT NOT THIS TIME. NEVER AGAIN !!!

  121. Merlin Wood says:

    if everyone stopped going to games the problem would go away in a flash

  122. Den R Zampieri says:

    Once an idiot always an idiot. Don’t want to stand for our national anthem….then play football in a foreign country.

  123. Herbert G. Chapman says:

    First of all you need to stop thinking these players are HERO”S Their not. The Media want you to believe they are and build them up so you spend your money on them.

  124. I don’t like them kneeling, but that is their right. It is also my right not to watch NFL football. I started this last season and didn’t have a problem at all! Plenty of great college football! Biting the hand that feeds one is not wise. Going to be a much bigger loss of fans this year for the NFL, GUARONTEED!!!!You can say you heard that hear.

  125. Another year not watching high priced anti Americans. Wake up NFL !!

  126. Gerald Ladd says:

    Maybe this coon should go play down in Venezuela!

    • NOYB says:

      He be mad bout da’ slaves back in da’ day. SHEEEEEEEIT !
      Notice how this wasn’t a problem untill that jig – a – boo- boo
      obama & his Sasquatch wife started this hate America stuff ?
      Remember what BIG Mike said :
      ” All dis’ fo damned flag ! ”
      ” I never be proud of America”
      Friggin’ ungrateful coons !

  127. Martin says:

    Wonder if these black players relies that many black soldiers fought for their freedom under that flag in the Civil War.
    All those who refuse to respect our flag need go visit our military cemeteries here and in Europe and the South Pacific and read the names and ages of the Heroes the gave their all so they could make millions do what they love to do. If there is any protest my TV will not be on to watch any game,
    We are the ones paying for to play your game.

    • Janice says:

      Fan’s unite… Boycott their a$$es into submission starting with the very first game of the year. Hitting them in their pocket books is the only thing they will understand…Show them who actually runs the show.

  128. John Nomeyko says:

    If I want to watch Politics I can go to Fox or CNN I don’t to go to the NFL. I have found there are much better things to do with my time than watch these idiots. No more NFL for me.

  129. Chuck Hobbs says:

    “I’m not going to let that stop me from doing what I want to do.”

    I’m not gonna let that stop me from not watching the MFL (not a typo, use your imagination). I have been a football fan all my life but now I have better things to do than watch a bunch of millionaire malcontents protest the very country that allows them to make their insane salaries for playing a kid’s game.

  130. Robert says:

    These spoiled a-holes think they are important and people will suffer because they kneel. Well these chicken shts will soon find out that WE the people won’t be watching, attending, they half ass energetic play. College football is a hell of a lot more exciting . I hope these supposedly Pro players starve . They are a bunch of phonies, why aren’t they helping the people they say they are representing with money and physical help? Hell no!, that would require that they leave their plush homes and rub elbows with poor and needy people that need help.

    • Rick says:

      YEAH ! NOT ! HAVE NOT WATCHED AND CERTIANLY HAVE NOT ATTENDED ANY NNFL GAMES . GET A JOB ! GROWN MEN RUNNING AROUND YEAR AFTER YEAR TO MOVE A FOOTBALL . YEAH EXCITING , NOT WOULD RATHER WATCH GIRLLYMAN VOLLYBALL .

  131. dan kasner says:

    deport them now, go to some country that won’t even pay you to play

  132. Mark says:

    Done with the NFL! They don’t live in the real world! Stand and Respect the Flag or be Disrespectful and be Fined and Fired! Zero Tolerance policy!

  133. Steve says:

    These LIBTARDED MORONS are going to put themselves on the unemployment line.

  134. Rich Clark says:

    I all ways wondered how the “One Worlders” were going to “Soccer” a #1 sport in the US. Well, the kneelers have killed their g”golden goose”. I quit watch in Pro Football . Switched back to college and high school.

    All the physical damage done to a human body because the players helmets , shoulder pads, and guards to the other body parts make them feel invincible, they crash into each other like robots. This causes concussions, deep tissue bruising and even damage to bone structure. Their career is limited in time. Brady is a freak, defying the odds.

    But the kneelers, show me they have never even read the Constitution of the USA. They also have never read the USA History from 1700 to today. I don’t think “Black History” as a curriculum in Colleges prepares these athletes for careers out side of football and ESPN.

  135. Marie says:

    I bet if these morons who are paid the salaries they get they probably wouldn’t make a statement like this. Just suspend their salaries and their statements and actions will be different.

  136. Jo says:

    Question: why is it that if you watch baseball, players stand for the anthem, caps off; when you watch hockey, players stand on the ice, helmets off; same with basketball . What is wrong with the prima donnas on the football field? No more football for me. I’ll follow my other 3 teams that respect the folks who fought & died for my freedom & flag!

    • JH says:

      It’s because the overpaid, spoiled brats are gonna continue to throw their tantrums just like the demoscum they smooch up to.

    • JHW says:

      Their IQ is not as high as the football they play with. They don;t realize we don’t need them or football.I have not watched a game in 2 years and don’t intend to start again.

  137. Joel F says:

    I tuned into a sports radio station yesterday, and the sportscaster was reading a report from the NFL, saying that each NFL team owner made $255million a piece in revenue last season! The article went on to say that Roger Goodell’s job running the NFL is very safe, because of the money that owners are making in spite of players disrespecting our Flag. So I’m wondering if as many people protested the NFL as we’ve been hearing. We need much more Boycott participation apparently, because they are not being hurt enough financially !

  138. Ralph Udick says:

    NFL does not exist for me since 2016. It is irrelevant.

  139. Ron says:

    Let these MORONS/IDIOTS move to Russia or China and play ball there if they HATE America so bad. I for one did NOT watch football last year and I will NOT watch it again on TV nor will I attend any Carolina Panthers ball games either!!!

  140. TabBCat says:

    A better poll would be to give a choice between should they be fined, should they be fired, should there be no consequences.

  141. If this country is so bad, move to another one. We should not be catering to a bunch of attention-seeking millionaire brats. Why are they getting so much publicity?? Ignore them and maybe they will go away.

    • Mary Allen says:

      I won’t watch or go to a game. Their actions are anti-American. They make plenty of money; why don’t they go to the enter-city and help those who need it. Be positive in stead of thinking negative and displaying evil.

    • Bud says:

      2018 Football Season Zero, other things 100 Percent. Losers.

  142. NR says:

    Just fire them…after you ask..” why are you kneeling”

    I’ll guarantee 90% would be unable yo articulate a coherent response

    Undereducated, overlaid fools

  143. Bob Knapp says:

    It worked exactly as planned. The relatively unknown Jurrell what’s-his-name said something really stupid and it is getting him the attention he obviously craves. Doesn’t matter that most of it is negative as in the PR world all attention is good as long as your name is spelled correctly.

  144. Michael says:

    I think we all should stop watching the NFL. They are overpaid morons that do not have a good influence on society. It used to be that we could look up to sports players as heroes but not anymore . I respect their freedom of speech and giving their opinion in all matters but it must be done properly and not the way they are doing it. I agree that they should be flipping burgers if they’re even capable of doing that.

  145. Pam Johnson says:

    Owners fault. All cowards. No more football . Don’t respect the flag or America you don’t deserve to play.

  146. George says:

    No longer watch football. Their salaries should be reduced to offset league losses.

    • D W says:

      They will be reduced if none of us attend a game. I already made that my resolution last year when this started. Never again will I go to a game nor watch one on TV. I spent 24 years in the USMC to defend the right to protest, not be stupid as they are doing. They need to protest OFF the field as it is when they are on the field that they are working and getting paid.

      • Mary Allen says:

        Right! Thank you for your service.

      • John Flynn says:

        Just as important, if not MORE so, is BOYCOTTING sponsors of the games, the television channels collect big $$$ from ADVERTISERS, therefore they can give the NFL huge contracts to televise the games. Go after, and boycott, these products and TV won’t get as much $$$ for its commercial spots. This is where the big $$ comes from, allowing for the huge contracts the players sign

  147. Leslie Adams says:

    I dropped my expensive nfl ticket last year because of this and refuse to watch football.

  148. Over paid and under educated jackasses!!! Just boycott the NFL and their sponsors!!! See if the fools can make it flipping burgers!! I for one do not watch the NFL anymore!! College football is played with more team effort and less B.S.. The pocket book always gets results!!!

  149. Nancy Anderson says:

    The players who don’t kneel and who do show respect for our country and flag, shouldn’t have to be punished along with the idiots who are so stupid and full of crap. So the non-respecters should be fired and go try to find or form their own team somewhere. After all of them are fired, then the people who like football can once again watch and cheer for their teams. That’s just my opinion, form your own.

  150. I agree. FIRE all that knell to the Flag and Anthem. Deport them to a third world country and see how they manage to live.

  151. Bill says:

    Fines don’t mean anything to these overpaid assholes. Escort the turds off the field the second they kneel and fire their stinkin’ ass for good. They don’t deserve to be called Americans and we don’t want them in our great USA.

  152. Mike says:

    Fining means nothing to them, but firing them will. Which is what they deserve.

    Boycott everything NFL!!

  153. Debi Johnson says:

    THESE HIGHLY PAID SPORTS PLAYERS NEED TO BE FIRED AND BANNED FROM FOOTBALL…THEY NEED TO TAKE A LOOK AT KAPERNICK..HE GOT FIRED….NOBODY WILL HIRE HIM…SO HE WANTS TO SUE THE NFL…GOOD LUCK WITH THAT DUMB ASS…I DON’T GET WHAT THE FLAG AND THE ANTHEM HAS TO DO WITH COPS HARASSING BLACKS….IT IS ABOUT THE MEN AND WOMEN WHO FOUGHT FOR THIS COUNTRY…AND PAYING RESPECT TO THEM…AND THE ONES WHO DIDN’T MAKE IT BACK HOME…AND KNEELING , SITTING…OR STAYING IN THE LOCKER ROOM IS VERY DISRESPECTFUL…THEY ARE JUST OVERPAID …UNGRATEFUL IDIOTS…

    • Ma Bear says:

      AMEN!!!

    • Daniel says:

      Cops are in situations that none of these back seat quarterbacks could ever comprehend. Yes there are some bad cops just like there are bad doctors, politicians, you name it. More whites are shot by police officers but me stating this does not equate to a bunch of bad cops. These players that are so upset why don’t they give up their high paying careers (if they are that concerned) and join the police force . They will get a different view about police officers real quick.

  154. Joanna says:

    OH!hell, Fire the damn bunch of these Anti-American players !!! They sure as hell like the money … Not for nothing the money is AMERICAN!!! Shove that in your ugly old brain!!

  155. BajaRon says:

    If the players want to commit NFL suicide, then more power to them. As America becomes Great Again. We may have to leave the NFL behind as they complain rather than lend a hand.

    These guys hate their country, hate their fans, and have no concern for the damage that they are doing to their team and team mates, let alone the game itself.

    My empathy is for the majority of honest, decent, patriotic NFL players who are being forced to go down with the ship sabotaged by their ‘Buddies’.
