Free speech means one can't be fined or incarcerated by government authorities for expressing their views.  Your right to free speech does not end at the workplace.  That said, free speech does not mean one cannot be fired for their views. 

These NFL players are protesting a system they believe too often fails to hold certain police officers and/or other authorities accountable for unjust actions.  There should be no doubt these players respect law enforcement officers as a whole, particularly those who protect them at the stadiums.

That is quite a leap right there. Have any proof to support that statement ?

Actually, it's the NFL that has proven it doesn't support law enforcement.  They've allowed these protests but banned players from showing support for police.  The NFL has been poorly run for a long time.  I wouldn't miss it one bit.

Having said that, the owners should do the following.  They should meet with their players and propose that they stop kneeling and protesting.  In exchange, each owner will coordinate and fund a permanent task force of players and local police to address the problems created by community policing.  Since most teams are located in the major urban areas where most of the problems occur, this would be a positive step toward addressing the very concerns that I think the players are protesting.  Since it is a local issue, Trump should just shut up and support the effort.

What real solutions.  We are not going to get tangled up in that when we can have protests and craziness.   Pabar, come on.  (kidding of course).

Not clear to me.  Seems BLM movement is painting with a very broad brush.  Loads of good cops out there.  Most are helpful. 

We give them the most miserable of jobs.  Go into areas no one else would dare enter, even armed.  Go get the bad guys out and help save these extremely tough neighborhoods from very bad dudes.

Do all that while we march around, spit on you, videotape you, harass you in every possible fashion. 

Did you see where the NFL player spit on the fan.  That is going to go over well.

Yessir. UWa, you still supporting the NFL with those sweet Seahawks season tickets of yours that I sat in when I caught that ball thrown by Urlacher?

Dropped them.  Too many kids in college, 2008 made things slim.  I don't get duhvernment to kick when times are tough.  Tickets are through the rough now.  Almost 3x over what they were in 2008.  

It will be good for the NFL, their head had gotten way too big.  They are optional entertainment.  They are likely going to find that out very quickly.  Once they cease being entertaining, and start becoming major league pains in the arses, people will drop them like rocks.

Going to be funny.  All the leftist have hated football for years.  Now they going to be like "WTF, Drumpf hates football, now I loves football"

I am hearing that NFL teams may have stood for God Save the Queen in London.  Would be interested in hearing confirmation.

They did.  Some of them knelt for the anthem and then stood for God Save the Queen.

Actually, it makes sense, regardless of how they reacted to the anthem, because they're in another country and they should respect that country's anthem.

I heard that also. NFL not really much into history and book learnin and such. BTW are you telling me that I throw out that 'Urlacher" morsel, and NOBODY asks me what the F'n story is on that? Gotta admit, that kinda hurts.

I agree they have the right to kneel and their employer has the right to terminate them.

These NFL players are protesting a system they believe too often fails to hold certain police officers and/or other authorities accountable for unjust actions.  There should be no doubt these players respect law enforcement officers as a whole, particularly those who protect them at the stadiums.  

CK clearly said he wouldn't respect the flag because of the country it represents. He initially told NFL.com "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder."

IMO the protests are now more about defiance of Trump and the original intent is being lost in the shuffle.

Unfortunately, it was typical Trump rhetoric. He's like the guy that only has a hammer in his toolbox.

Having said that, the owners should do the following.  They should meet with their players and propose that they stop kneeling and protesting.  In exchange, each owner will coordinate and fund a permanent task force of players and local police to address the problems created by community policing.  Since most teams are located in the major urban areas where most of the problems occur, this would be a positive step toward addressing the very concerns that I think the players are protesting.  Since it is a local issue, Trump should just shut up and support the effort.

I was thinking the same thing - far more productive and effective than kneeling. Both sides should learn something if they sat down together and discussed the issues.

If the black community expresses their objections via the vote, they're accused of being bought off.  If they start a movement to protest what they see as oppression, then they own, and are responsible for, the few idiots who infiltrate their group and misbehave.  If a black individual protests using a personal symbolic action, then he/she is being disrespectful.  Clearly there's a high bar to acceptable protesting.

A study was posted earlier showing controversial law enforcement shootings are on the decline.  Could be a sign protests are bringing change for the better.

Trump lied. Imagine that!. Ratings are up for NFL. Pregame at CBS highest in 7 years. He can't last much longer. How much losing can he take before he starts believing the loser label himself? The Emperor has a clothing problem.

What a load of crap. That has to be the most apologetic description of BLM I have ever heard. And blatantly false.

Very misleading statement from Pop n Fresh. Notice the caveat from CBS and the tanking by NBC
The ratings also went up from Week 2 this year, CBS said, but that could be because there were no national games played in the second week. Only a regional game, which typically draws in a smaller audience, aired during Week 2.
NBC Sports
Fewer people tuned in to watch this week’s Sunday night football game on NBC than during the previous week and during the same week in 2016, according to Dan Masonson, a spokesman for NBC Sports Group. This Sunday night’s ratings were down about 7% from last week, when the Green Bay Packers played the Atlanta Falcons, Masonson said. The overall ratings from the most recent Sunday game was also down 10% from the comparable week last year.

SNF down 12.9% and Fox's afternoon game down 16%.

More importantly....

Stocks for Comcast, Walt Disney, Fox, CBS--are all down between 1% to 8%

Ah you seemed quite butthurt about it all.  Just trying to make sure you have gotten over it all.  Using the term rules, and all.

Yes fhoenix's post wandered off to oblivion at the start of paragraph 2.  Don't tell me you wasted time reading it all?  Top Level Didnot Read TLDR it for me.

Don't take it personal.  It is a strange place here nowadays.  KPI, that sexual incestuous freak shows up and disappears, never to be heard from again, leaving us all hanging.  Even tried making a sweet thread to inviter her back, but no luck.

Dewey is now Willie, we are unsure of cis-gender neutrality changes.  All very off putting.  But hey it's a free country and all.  You want me to call you willie, dress like a clown and abuse your nubile reporter crew for their muh russsia silliness, I am here for you.

That explosively salty personality of bama_turd, shows up, loses it for 18 minutes, then gone again.  I think he has DC disease.   Then there is Fresh.  Just cannot help himself/herself.  Her/his gender questionability is clear in every post.  I am still pretty convinced that Fresh is just a reincarnation of a non-incestuous version of KPI. 

So yeah, I definitely want to hear that you still have that Urlacher ball on your mantle.  That was a great story.

Yea on all that. What a long strange trip it's been (so far). And yessir, the Urlacher ball is still in it's case with the ticket stubs, got it in the living room on a shelf next to my Gitmo and Flown-in-my-buddies-A10 Warthog-over-Kuwait U.S.A. Flags.

This forum could actually be part of a corporate communication degree, or even a masters in human resource development. You get to put up with sh:t from all sides of the spectrum, and somehow, manage to please everyone.

Better than a worthless poly science degree, with which you can sell and stock cigarettes to convenience stores alongside your consumer science majors.
