Some of these players actually live pretty modestly.
I don't see the knee takers living modestly

You say they are disrespecting a flag. I say they are disrespecting us. Just for fun please try to convince me that is not so.
That is amazing if you can get an entire league of highly paid professional football players to get together in a locker room to have a meeting on how to "annoy" average joe white guy. I'm sure that was their intent from day one.

....or not.
This country offers oportunity to achive, they are some of the greatest examples of achievement and yet they fuss.
I agree. But....

So, they should just take their millions and their influence and leave their families, friends and loved ones behind to fend for themselves? Pretend that stuff like what been going on in this country for decades doesn't happen because they are now millionaires? Na, I think you would laugh at them and then call them sellouts...and say that they don't stand for anything.
If i used my job to annoy my customers,
The only people that really are annoyed are mostly white guys either don't think there was ever a problem or just simply don't care. Problem is, if they protested at your convenience....when would that actually be?
Only avery short while ago you said you don't like BLM.
I don't support any extremist type groups. I don't like the idea that some (not all) people in the BLM group believe in violence and chaos. That's never a good option and all they are doing is making a bad problem worse by giving themselves up as valid targets for bad cops.

Not that I don't believe there is a racial issue in the US...I just don't believe hurting anyone is ever a good option.

Here is my thinking on it. The flag represents the country. Disrespecting the country because of racism means what? Disrespect of other blacks?
I agree. But....

Sorry I have no idea what you are talking about. I work with several blacks. One is an electronics engineer who worked for Motorolla in the 70's He designed many of the high power RF transistors Motorola produced for many years. Not sure if he just got a masters or if he went all the way to PHD, but point is he is a rock star with our company. We would have gone belly up without him. He faced some adversity, but he achieved, and always had a decent personality and attitudes.
A recent guy we hired is a mechanical designer. He is not very good designer yet, and has back stabbed me a couple times in pathetically lame failed attempts to elevate himself, he is a bit of a weasel, and i do avoid working with him now, but I am confident he will grow up and do well. His Mom is a doctor. I don't recall what his father does, but it is something good no doubt. Another one is a salesman recently hired, decent fellow, back to work after caring for his wife who died of cancer. Another 2 work in production, decent folks, one of them is/was a football fan, and he is disgusted by NFL as much as I am. The thing is they all fended for themselves, achieved in varying degree like the rest of us do, and they have my respect for it.
The only people that really are annoyed are mostly white guys either don't think there was ever a problem or just simply don't care. Problem is, if they protested at your convenience....when would that actually be?
The us population of football fans is mostly white guys. They're being insulted, so ummm.. should they not be insulted? Really?

All of those Ann Arbor council members should be fired. Conduct unbecoming.

And all because a certain portion of the population chooses to continue to embarrass itself by making negligible effort to better itself, preferring instead to bleat nonsense about "oppression" etc. while doing everything possible to fail to get an education, fail to act civilized, fail to make any effort to work, fail to . . . do pretty much anything *but* whine . . .

Oh nevermind :-)

We spoke about this quite a lot a few years back. Turned out the Ladies had made noticeable improvements recently in education and employment, but the Men had not.

It is my fault somehow. It just has to be. Couldn't possibly be a two way street.

As long as the race card is in play, it is a one way street to nowhere.
(That is the main thing that bugs me about this )

That applies to other cards (gender, age, handicap, low IQ, and the like). As soon as someone plays the "card", meaningful discussion has reached the end.

because these men are people and have families and friends whom likely have been affected by bad policing in this country at some point in their lives.
What a load of crap and give me a break. They could care less about anyone but themselves. Nothing but showboating here. There are of course a very few who have and will continue to do what they can ( with their wallets) to change things but it's by no means the norm. I hope the NFL is brought to their knees ( no pun intended) by letting this crap go on.

They put their bodies and health on the line for your entertainment on a regular basis. They are required to train and maintain insane fitness levels...for your entertainment, and when they get hurt....it's for your entertainment.
you are way off there, they are in the game for 3 reasons

1) the love of the game
2) the money
3) the fame

You're a good crony.....

It was who she implied my cronies were.....like some sort of bigots.

And let's all get another thing straight about this talk of racists....

Most people that use terms insulting other's ethnic backgrounds are not racists....they are bigots...

A racist is a person like Adolf Hitler(the most famous of racists in our time) and his many CRONIES.

He and his cronies, not only advocated for the outright extermination of others, but actually put it into practice on a totally massive scale.

That's racism.....

The sad but funny thing here is this is just a game they like other entertainers and paid to dance for our enjoyment nothing more. We control their destiny by simply not tuning in or paying to watch. looks like many of us have choose wisely.
We are the ones in control.
