Agree. I couldn’t care less whether the NFL stands, sits, or kneels. They can write all the names on the jerseys they want. They can make ‘em look like NASCAR logos with BLM slogans for all I care. Haven’t watched NFL since they began “taking a knee”. I’ve met too many guys who “gave a knee” in Iraq and Afghanistan.

To hell with the NFL and all who support them.

It seems like the NFL is trying to see how many people they can alienate

NASCAR is probably planning to do the same.

Part of their continuing effort to be "Major League"

Maybe the NFL can play every national anthem for nationality represented in the United States. They can do that for 2 1/2 hours before every game. Then they can say the game was a tie not to offend anyone, and send the fans home.

The reason for the low ratings will be racism .

All I know is they plan on ramming this down your throat till you think its real. If they can't earn respect they will demand it.

NFL has been garbage imo for years. I won’t be watching a single NFL game this year.....haven’t cared about it in a few years actually . College ball is where it’s at...Let’s hope they keep this craziness out of that. Go Dawgs.

Never understood why the national anthem is played at any professional or youth sporting event

Will it be only 13% as long as the “regular” national anthem since they’re only 13% of the population?

Because most people love and enjoy America.

Of course they will take a knee for it. Remember the weren't protesting the anthem. Just injustice or something

Haven't watched since they started taking a knee... I'm a Jags fan anyway so I already know the outcome before kickoff.
Just a shame that so many things that used to be an escape from the daily bullshit have become daily bullshit concentrate.

What does that have to do with playing the anthem before sporting events?
