It’s amazing that people think athletes aren’t allowed to speak out or have an opinion, but believe their personal opinion is worthy. What makes you special? Why is, for example, laura ingraham super qualified to have an opinion but an athlete is not? What did she do to tell others stay in their lane? It doesn’t appear she has any special level of citizenship or expertise. And that goes for all the talking heads. you may not agree with peaceful protest where they burn down buildings, loot and pilage and i’m not personally taking knees, but it is a constitutional right we fought and flew the flag for.

Most games are on Sunday which is for fishing. The weather and fishing is good in south FL during football season. That's all I need to know.

So I cut on the TV right when they had a moment of silence for "Unity". Both teams not sure if all players stood in unity on the field. Some fans cheered but many more booed. Then Collinsworth made a little statement. Other then that I saw nothing that had BLM on it when the game started. I heard they had something in the end zones but I did not see it. I was actual presently surprised. Not sure what else happened prior to that but was expecting to see more while the game was being played like the NBA. If that happened I was going to cut it off.

It is so simple, how is so hard to understand?

I watch football for the GAME, not politics.

If I wanted to watch politics there are plenty of other places for that.

Why mix politics and sports? J.J. Watt doesn't understand why people were booing.

Kluck you just don’t get it
You must not have benefited from Trump or are too blind to see what is truly going on. In this country today the left has gone completely out of their minds and will do whatever they can to sabotage this election including using this plandemic they have created. It will be a shock to the world how this miraculously will disappear after the election.

Ya'll sound like a bunch of crybabies.. It's not a good look.

Why would anyone give a shi* about the opinion of braindead mutants who play a game every Sunday? This is not a place to get upset about the personal beliefs of people who were basically handed a degree to play, smash each others brains out every week, have no "life experience" and lose IQ every year. Start watching when they play and skip all the BS.

It's like quitting facebook without a rant on facebook why you're quitting facebook.. You're grown men and should be able to just do stuff without all the drama.

Most of the players have no idea what they are even protesting, I have to believe that the average IQ has to be in 70-80’s so it’s “Monkey see Monkey do“

Meanwhile digital viewership was up 55%.

Also NFL opener competing with a Lakers playoff game for the first time in history.

The “politics” will not make a dent in the NFL profit train.

I don't care if I effect them or not.

I watch sports for sports, not politics.
