I never did see a response to my comment that the Tebow on his knees praying thing was fake news. Anybody? Anybody?

So tell me again how the NFL

 Great summation, jim, and it shows the hypocrisy of the NFL in a way that anyone can see. Except, of course, for those who have no understanding or interest in anything happening in the world deeper childish names for President Trump.

Do you really think there is something in their contract that said they could not honor fallen police officers (for example) or was that was just a decision by the league? That is the same league making this decision.


uniform issues have been making news since at least the early 80's. I did note in one of your incorrect posts you are for the NEW Repubican party. There's a tell.

Nope, nothing that said they couldn't honor fallen police officers but there are rules about the uniform they must wear.

Rattle off your slurs all you want but the truth is, most are not going to put up with Trump trying to boss them around and play dictator. Good for the NFL.

There is NOTHING disrepsectful about protesting injustice, regardless of when and where its done.

There is NOTHING disrespectful about protesting injustice - but there is EVERYTHING disrespectful when your portest lays the blame at the feet of your Nation. Consider the population of our Nation and consider the number of even questionable police shootings (the supposed complaint) nad you get an idea howm inappropriate thisis.

 

What is abhorent is a fake POTUS pretending he supports Vets when he's sending more brave Americans to Afghanistan to DIE for his ego, and preping for a war with Iran and N, Korea. Der Trumper truly is the face of the neoRepublican Party.

We do not have a "fake POTUS". President Trump was handed the situation in Afghanistan. He is defending us from two dangerous nations going nuke. And yes, he is the face of the new Republican Party that puts the interests of America before that of others and before petty partisanship.
