Still done with the NFL

Jeff in TXJeff in TX Posts: 2,641 Senior Member
With the NFL's new National Anaheim rule, it hard to believe (really it's not) some players and the players association are still wigging out.  The NFL will fine the team and not the players if any players kneel.  However, players that don't want to participate in the National Anaheim can remain in the locker room. 

Owners figured out last year these protest costs them millions of dollars and wanted it put to rest.  NFL gives players $100 million towards players causes to help them within their communities they're so concerned about.  But the players are pissed because they can't protest any longer without causing issues for their teams and owners.  $100 M and  staying in the locker room isn't good enough for them.

It's all good though, I'm still done with the NFL.  Good or bad my hine parts will be parked in front of the TV on Saturdays to watch my Aggies!  Sunday's I'll be on my deer stand!

Spoiled millionaire babies just don't get it.

God bless our troops and Law Enforcement Officers who serve our country.  God bless those troops and their families who gave their lives protecting us.  
Distance is not an issue, but the wind can make it interesting!

    Jeff I could not agree with you more.
    I never was a huge fan of NFL football, but when I watched that asswipe kappernappi kneeling in front of a Soldier and Marine as the Anthem played I was so angry. They call it protest, I and many others call it disrespect.

    Rabid fans
    Yup people willing to pay a weeks wages to watch a game.  I live close enought to Hardrock (Dolphin) Stadium that the fly over rattles my windows and sometimes you can hear the crowd cheer. I have gone to two games in the entire time i have lived here and that is because tickets were free as part of Military appreciation. With decent seats a couple beers and food two people can go through several hundred dollars after spending 400 for tickets

    I've always loved football, but now I content myself with going to watch my grandsons play 5A High School ball and watching college football on TV. I was getting to be a Cowboys fan again, till they kneeled. Now, I'm done with them until this whole mixing politics with sports thing goes away, for good. It won't happen with the current NFL commissioner.

    The quit watching and found out I didn’t really miss it so probably won’t come back no matter what they do.

    I only watch a game if the folks I'm visiting are watching one. Otherwise, no NFL will be seen on my screen.

    I gave up watching NFL games a long time ago.
    I enjoy watching College Football and the enthusiasm the players have and excitement of the game.

    Haven't watched a NFL game in several years, and will continue to not watch. Until they line up with Roman shields and the linemen are armed with gladiuses, and have at each other at the hike of the ball, then I'll not watch a bunch of stupid protests that are as meaningless as a fart in a hurricane. The more they do that stupid kneeling protest, the more fans they lose. Eventually the team owners will have to cut a bunch of those bench warmers to make ends meet.

    I didn't watch a game last year and won't this season..  I will watch college football because of UGA.
