And maybe you could chronicle the social works of the Trump family.  Like all those "donations" made by the Trump Foundation to buy Trump portraits and sports memorabilia for DT's office and resorts.  Or those donations Trump was "forced" to make for veterans last year.  All this from our POTUS, who doesn't even know the words to our national anthem.

But it all has been good for investors.  Nike has hit at least 2 all-time high stock prices this week.  Thanks, Donnie!  (And Colin!)

First one out of the box, comparing JJ Watt to the kneelers.  You're a fool

Hey DChode why you gotta bring up Trump. Nice deflection since all You got is your emotions and TDS.
Michael Bennet donating money for inner city gardens. Sounds great. Just what ghettos need, a place to grow veggies and flowers.
All you need is llove.
Have a rotten day.

Kareem Hunt, shown below was a huge fan of sitting for the National Anthem.  

On Sunday the Kansas City Chiefs released KHunt (our nickname for him), after a video was released by TMZ showing him brutally beating a woman.  The woman suffered injuries that required surgery.

Now get this, this part is where the irony just digs in.  KHunt was sitting for the anthem to protest brutality.   You just cannot make this up.

Link that she needed surgery? I haven’t seen that anywhere else.

They are also looking into an alleged assault against a guy.

He’s got anger issues.

Miami's Robert Quinn complains about lack of coverage for his protest during national anthem. 

Somebody should clue Mr Quinn in.  The NFL is not big on media acts that cause a 20% reduction of ratings and revenue costing them millions. 

I am actually ok with his form of protest.  He holds one hand in a fist above his head.  Minus the reference back to the past black power movements, which everyone agrees is was troubling, he remains standing and clearly honors the flag.  He says he wants to bring unity.

He also has specific cases of injustice like Cynthia Brown.   A woman that was born Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, to a very broken home, abused as a youngster, her parents eventually lost her and she was put into an adoption home which she ran away from.  At 16 she was sex trafficked by a pimp named cut throat who drugged her and abused her regularly.  Here she was sold to Johnny Mitchell Allan, 43 for sex.  At some point she claims she felt Allan was going for a weapon under his bed and she shot him.  The prosecutor agued the Brown was attempting to rob Allan when she shot him. 

Anyway, not totally sure either way on the Brown case, but at least Quinn can reference specific wrongs that can at least be looked at and worked on.

Trump clearly won the NFL kneeling issue.  It is great to have leadership that is able to take on tough issues like this, and get everyone to realize that the national anthem is definitely about supporting those that have fought for our country and freedom.

Remember when Fresh said the players would win?  That has not aged well:

Stat Of The Day: The average NFL fan watched one more game this year than they did last — 17.1 vs 16.2). They also watched for more minutes per game — 83.5 vs 80.4 (Source: )

wahhahaha cnn says it is because the matchups are better. https://www.cnn.com/2019/01/03/media/nfl-ratings-2018-season/index.html .  Never even mentions the protests that cost the NFL 20% drop in viewership over 2 years. 

Yet, NFL officials definitively cited they believed the drop in viewership was directly due to protests and lots of Americans perceiving those protests as anti-troops, anti-vest or anti-American.  They implemented specific changes to broadcasts including contracts which stopped showing the players protesting, yet allowed for them to continue protesting.  And boom their viewership magically rebounds. 

Up 5% overall.  

I think Freshy just goes out of his way to be wrong.  He has to be doing it on purpose, right?

Streaming on other devices is way up.  People have many different ways to receive their NFL games.

Many times I think no one could be that dumb but fresh just keeps proving otherwise. Don’t give him enough credit to be trolling
