For the most part, I really dont care. That said, the media has a narrative and mission - which is apparently to divide the country further than it already is.

The part that bugs me the most about it is the people who try to justify it with free-speech rights, etc. etc. - which is nonsense, since the athletes are doing it on company time.

In the end, I think the kneeling is doing more harm than good....and the ironic thing is, the genesis of all this (Kapernick).....he was probably doing it to protest his benching......and even if his motivations were pure - he lost all credibility showing up to practice with cop/pigs socks on.

I've gotta be honest - I really think that people who rage over this have their life priorities completely out of whack. The entire country needs to just chill out, but this is one of the most ridiculous examples of rage over nothing that we've seen in recent years.

Just don't be mad when somepeople don't agree with you, or you get mocked because of it. It's your right to kneel, and it's our right to call you out if we feel like it. That's the way this stuff works around here.

And honestly, I just feel a little more removed from my old NFL fandom each passing year even without all this nonsense. I'll still watch, I'll still root, but the hardcore emotion for it just isn't to be found any more.
That resonated w/ me. Thanks for saying that. There's a give and take with every action.

I'll start with their stupid subjective rules that no one understands.
In a football BB still about 20% of the posters say it will effect how they view the NFL this year. My guess is away from this passionate group the figure is probably higher. If you are an NFL owner and you are considering two players of similar skill level will the fact that one of them kneels and the other doesn't effect your decision? My guess is it will to anyone being honest in here. Why piss off customers? It will effect the bottom line. People want to skip around this but it is what it is.

I can't say for sure. I watched the NFL like a religion before all this. I am probably not the best person to ask.

There are people on twitter freaking out that a Jack in the Box commercial made a joke about "my bowls" sounding like "my balls" and saying it is unacceptable in the Me Too movement.

I think people are just pretty stupid in general and twitter is the worst invention humans have made in a long time.

I want to clarify again, I'm not outraged by this...and I certainly dont lose any sleep over the issue.

But - what can be frustrating is the lack of depth to the protest. Ok - you took a knee, or raised a fist. Now what?

Nearly every damn player on NFL teams are millionaires and famous - and every damn one of them could call a press-conference (off company time), and many media outlets would cover it.

There's your podium, now tell us your story. What dont you like? What change do you propose? What actions are you personally taking (besides taking that knee) to initiate change?

They are in a very unique and powerful situation where they can do much more than you or I.......and it's a knee (for the most part....some have done more).

We knew he was a powder keg. This was a full on meltdown. If not for fans taunting him, would he have been that big of a PITA? Really doubt it.

To be fair rage and not supporting something financially are two totally different things. IF it keeps you up at night yea, you're wacked.

It's even worse when we find out some players were approached by the communities they supposedly represent and didn't bother to even respond.

I think people are just pretty stupid in general and twitter is the worst invention humans have made in a long time.
I think Twitter is part of it, but it's really a confluence of a bunch of different things:
  • Twitter (and other social media) give a loud voice to a group who would otherwise be a very, very tiny minority of the population.
  • However, we've destroyed journalism by supporting a model that encourages clickbait, and the best clickbait is about someone (albeit a tiny minority) having a fringe opinion you disagree with.
  • Once it hits the media, the lines between "fringe minority opinion" and "OMG PEOPLE DISAGREE WITH ME AND THEIR ACTIONS ARE GOING TO CAUSE MY BOWELS TO INVOLUNTARILY EMPTY THEMSELVES" becomes very, very small. Everyone gets up in arms about an issue that, really, most people didn't give a shit before it was amplified so much.
  • Celebrities and politicians weigh in, further amplifying a story that no one cared about in the first place except for a small minority.

In short, people just can't help themselves but to fan the flames.

I hate this kneeling shit. Its the kind of know-nothing, virtue signaling, SJW crap that urks me too no end.

It certainly isn't swaying me in whatever direction they want, in fact quite the opposite. That being said, i'm not going to let it **** up my lifelong love of football. Much like the cops they are protesting, most football players are good people, and arent in on shitting on the symbolic tradition we have before football games. On top of that, these dudes don't have to be role models, or even good people as far as i'm concerned. They are entertainers. The entertainment portion is all I care about.

A list of what a lot are doing, not all related to the protest.. I think the main thing is drawing attention to the problems with law enforcement.

How NFL players are making an impact off the field
