Right to bear arms perhaps.

 

Employers can dictate certain thing that happen during work hours - although not during lunch, which is the employee time unless on company grounds, then some restrictions.  

 

Even our laws / rules on certain discriminations are modified for employment - ADA - rule on accommodation.

 

Didn't a player get called out for praying or making some type of religious sign after a touchdown.  Seems that is rather restrictive of one's religious rights.

 

 


yes but he didnt have to stop doing it. I noticed TV was showing less and less of sideline shenanigns and the anthem until Trump stepped in

 

So it begins.

dicey but yes. take free speech..bashing your company on a news broadcast will get you fired. No one says there aren consequences either way. Many thing can be made as a condition of employment, especially without Union protection. what about a pee test ? its regulating your time off. more stringent pee tests for ball players. I had one of those 24/7 on call jobs without compensation for it, and you could only use " Im drunk" Once. 

So it begins.

Who claimed that standing for the anthem was a Constitutional requirement?

 

 


Most likely an archetypal trump voter - you know - just barely median IQ - Alt-Right - and all that...

The American People already LOST big time. Der Trumper went to another of his staged ralley's, tried out his "hate the NFL players who disapprove of police brutality" stichk, got YUGE applause from the lofo bigots attending, and knew he had another bright-shinny to use to distract attention from his dismal performance and the impending arrest of The Trump Family  Traitors for colluding with an enemy power to rig an American election.

 

Same tactic jrbush used to divert attention from his criminal presidency, just Der Trumper's version of "raising the Threat level" to rally support for jr's failed administration.

You mean because the Trump incompetence and police treatment of blacks will be protested in a different way if the owner's pass this?  OR, is it because the owner's are less likely to pass this then they were mandatory drug testing. Unlike most Americans, NFL players have a very strong union.

 

Right on.

 

Sadly, the NFL will dodge the issue as much as possible.  Would LOVE to see them address the problem, excess violence against minorities.  Have some nads, dudes.

Well I hope so, because the majority of people support the player's right to peacefully kneel in protest.

I hope that is true and not the idiots who think that banning peaceful protest will make anyone more ‘patriotic’.

 

Show the world that we have learned something from the Nazi takeover of Germany in the 1930s and don’t demand blind loyalty to a lousy leader.

Many fans haven't even arrived to their seats yet by the time the National Anthem begins....too busy stuffing their faces, getting beer, buying programs or other merch, or standing in line for the rest rooms.
