How far will NFL players protest during US Anthem and will their actions result in violence?


Increasing numbers of players seem to be raising fists since 9/24/17. 'Von Miller on why he kneeled for anthem: "We felt like President Trump's speech was an assault on our most cherished right, freedom of speech." - Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero)' Sept. 24, 2017.

    I would have agreed with you, but we just saw an impact on winning and losing causal connection to the protests. If millions of my money were effected I could get violent. Probably more so if I had any testosterone.

    Ratings and viewings down another 10%. We do not even know their cause expressed. What idiots who make millions but are still stupid. Hurrah for their rights. And hurrah for our right not to watch. NFL is suffering and good for them.

    I think that is a very valid question. Maybe we should ask Berekely? Why when someone was peacefully exercising their right to free speech did they riot? Good point.
