Probably same reason why school kids say the pledge of allegiance, Francis Bellamy was looking for a way to sell more flags.

no , these oeople font live america, or respect anything about it or its history

what you are seeing is stupid people literally give our country away ,in every way to get them to vote their party into office.

This country began a downhill slide when it allowed people that were not productive working citizens to vote...

it's turning into a socialist place where everybody wants to come to get free shit at the expense of the people who actually work to provide it.

Before you go calling people stupid, you might consider proofreading your own post.

Black National Anthem??? Give me a ****ing break!!!!
Is there a Mexican-American National Anthem, or Italian-American National Anthem???
Why do Black people desire to be SO different while claiming the desire to be "equal"????
Im curious........when will they be tearing down the pyramids, the Coliseum, and the Parthenon, since they were built by slaves?? Oh wait, those were white slaves..........that doesn't count.

Just a shame that so many things that used to be an escape from the daily bullshit have become daily bullshit concentrate.
I hear ya brother. Panthers fan here and I year usually ends about week 3. The standing or kneeling for the anthem is not going to be a big deal for us.

Stopped watching all that crap, pro or college, might consider it if they get some racial balance back. Lots of teams don't even recruit white players. Imagine the furor if there were all white teams.

People watch sports as a diversion and entertainment from the real world. It is an escape. Now, that there are so many crossed lines, people will eventually grow tired of the crap and just tune out.

The beginning of the end of the mega GROWTH in money for pro sports. Pro sports will still be there, but viewership will start to drop. Might not be this season, but it will happen. It is almost a Perfect Storm situation.

The beginning of the end of the mega GROWTH in money for pro sports. Pro sports will still be there, but viewership will start to drop. - I hope so , I'm tied of seeing these morons get handed a thousand times more then the avg guy has then throw it away because they beat women or shoot someone . I guess it's seeing the gift not treated with respect .
