you have got to be kidding me... HOW THE F%&K does an ex-Army ranger with three tours in Afghanistan have go out an have to apologize for standing for the National Anthem...
This Ex-Army Ranger deserves to have his military service invalidated for being a 6'9" pu$$y motivated solely by money.

Ive seen shorter smaller MEN with more to lose have more courage than this pile of apologetic $hit

un-F$%KING-believable

Watch at YouTube

I only saw 3 minutes of it, but works for me. Just a good guy trying to the best he can while surrounded by idiots.

The idea of having Americans in the tunnel and idiots in the locker is a lot better than allowing the idiots to be in the middle of it all.

Next draft season, I hope they choose wisely.

AFAIC... I think he abandoned true honor in favor of a paycheck.

guess he sees no other way of supporting his family outside of football.

Stop The Racism, Bigotry & Inequality

Racist? um most of your NFL players are BLACK,

Bigotry? Most NFL players live in rich neighborhoods/ drive exotic cars,

Inequality? Most are MILLIONAIRES... for just playing a game w/near zero brain power.

Sherman and the Seahawks agreed to a four-year, $56 million contract extension with $40 million of that guaranteed in May of 2014, just three months after Seattle beat the Denver Broncos 43-8 in Super Bowl XLVIII. It represented a meteoric rise for Sherman, who was a fifth-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft out of Stanford, and who almost immediately became one of the best cornerbacks in the NFL. Sherman’s 2017 salary cap figure with his current contract is $13.63 million and dips slightly to $13.2 million in 2018, the last season of his deal. Sherman will also be 31 years of age at the conclusion of his current contract, which could also lead the Seahawks to evaluate internally how much they want to invest in Sherman past this current contract.
Looks like the "protest" ends for him in 2018, or sooner. That 40 million guarantee has probably already been paid.

To speed this up I tried to fix the inequality thing. My boss said he will not give me a 56 million dollar contract.
Obviously my boss is a racist.

Maybe Sherman's boss would be OK with paying him average household income? 50K $ ?

Could you imagine the outrage from these A-hole players if Trump took a knee during the National Anthem. You would hear about how much of a disgrace it was then.

He sold his soul and his honor. Sorry to see it from a once hero.

Amazing what people will do for money.

Our country has lost its way.

So sad! I had much respect for him as well as others. Until people start standing up and quit funding orgs like the NFL it will continue.

Got to have my cup of heli in the morning.

I seriously hope he saves his money... cause once the NFL is done with him in about 5 years this little apology aint gonna get him squat in the real world.

given his demeanor he aint gonna make it after retirement:
According to a 2009 Sports Illustrated article, 78% of National Football League (NFL) players are either bankrupt or are under financial stress within two years of retirement
Sports Illustrated recently estimated that 80% of retired NFL players go broke in their first three years out of the League. FEB 9, 2015
Nearly 16 percent of NFL players drafted between 1996 and 2003 declared bankruptcy within 12 years of retirement, according to a new working paper released by the National Bureau of Economic Research.
if they dont go broke(end up where they started) they go deeper in the hole and file for bankruptcy...

So nothing changes according to studies already done.

4 out of 5 go broke and loose it all the rest bury themselves in debt... go figure given no actual brain power and no actual skill beyond tacking, catching/throwing a ball and running.... then throw in a BS attitude about this country and on top of it all a worthless BS college degree they often dont earn and I theorize it makes things worse.

I actually do not believe the 80% figure.
They can make a living coaching, plenty of examples.
I hate the attitude but those guys do not need to work afterwards. NFL is big business not only in the USA.

Forbes and others say it is true
https://www.forbes.com/sites/leighs...e/#b0bb50878ccb

On the other end of the spectrum, I read somewhere that the Harry Potter actor had not spent any of his money... its not how much you make, it is what you keep that matters.

Hmmmmm! Still dont believe the SI report
I really do not like quoting wiki:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Per...erican_athletes

The actual paper:

http://www.nber.org/papers/w21085.pdf

The SI report is vague, to say the least, about its souces:

https://www.si.com/vault/2009/03/23...hletes-go-broke

The 78 figure really does not make any sense. Particularly for the ones that received pentions.
Many are broke shortly after retiring, sure! It is just not 78%.

They can make a living coaching,
not so according to RAY FITTIPALDO of the
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette:
In the National Football League, the criteria for selecting a head coach has little to do with one’s playing career. The owners of the 32 NFL teams might as well have “No Experience Required” in boldface on the job description for the most important position in their organizations.

The number of head coaches with playing experience in the NFL has decreased dramatically in the past 30 years while the other three major sports churn out ex-player after ex-player for head coaching jobs.

Playing experience has never mattered much in the NFL. It has become less important as head coaches become more like CEOs. They must be able to delegate to assistants because the job entails so much more than it once did.
which is why most suck at it when dealing with kids...

do you read any of those papers you posted (you posted the link to the synopsis but no the actual paper)?
from the actual aper:
Our findings are different from what the life-cycle model predicts. First, players declare bankruptcy relatively soon after retirement. After only two years post-retirement many players have gone into bankruptcy. Second, annual bankruptcy (“hazard”) rates are not affected by a player’s total earnings or career length. Having played for a long time and having been a successful and well-paid player does not provide much protection against the risk of going bankrupt.
Future work will focus on what types of players have higher bankruptcy
risk, perhaps indicating behavioral biases, correlates of predictably poor financial decision making, and social variables. This evidence should also inform helpful interventions, both for these athletes and for other workers with unusual income profiles.
there are tons of actual research papers that all state the pretty much the same thing...
The 78 figure really does not make any sense. Particularly for the ones that received pentions.
So here you go the paper:
The Importance of Financial Management for
Professional Athletes and the Prevention of
Bankruptcy - Christopher Danowski
and the actual study on NFL players after retirement:
https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Amanda_Sonnega/publication/266456916_National_Football_League_Player_Care_Foundation_Study_of_Retired_NFL_Players/links/56eab12708ae8c97677b96ec.pdf
