I consider when they put their uniform on, they are AT WORK.  I consider the ritual of the National Anthem PART OF THE WORK DAY for them.  It is not separate from the kickoff. 

Just as all of us have requirements at work, this is one of theirs. It is not a separate part of their day - IT IS WORK.

Exactly! Your post is clearer than mine!  Smiley

Yes, yes! Once you put on the team's uniform you are at work and governed by the rules of your employer. I was a contracted worker and my employer had the right to institute and enforce rules relating to employee behaviors during working hours. If I didn't like the rules I was free to quit, but I did not have the right to defy policies, especially while on the job. At this point I have no patience for these immature, uneducated, brats (I seriously doubt most of them earned their high school diplomas honestly. I've seen how subject matter teachers are pressed by coaches to give passing grades so that Johnny Jock can play come Friday night. I'm willing to bet a lot of college scholarships and diplomas get handed out the same way). Pro players are over paid, over entitled, and totally ungrateful for the opportunity bestowed upon them. They are so arrogant they don't acknowledge most people don't get to run around, throw and catch a ball 3-4 hours a day, 4 days a week (play) and get paid multi-millions of dollars to do so. They don't care to understand that good law abiding men and women of our armed forces work/worked 24/365 defending our flag and country (many having lost limbs and many losing their lives) to ensure these disrespectful doofusses have the freedom to "play".  Oh, and lest they forget, those same soldiers ensure we have the First Amendment, which quite frankly they are misusing as an excuse for their petulant behavior. As for thinking they are racially profiled and unfairly targeted by the police, I suggest they take a good look at security camera footage from robbed/looted  businesses all over this country. The videos don't lie. Check dash cams and cell phone cam recordings too. Hm-m-m-m-m-m reality stings.

Graham Ledger said it best last night, to the effect; They are Overpaid and Under-educated.

Not a direct quote as I didn't think to write it down.

Ha Ha, Fine with me. At this point I don't care what they do.

I have yet to watch a single game this season.

I will boycott the NFL and their sponsors.

If they figure it out and start behaving, they will need to send me an email so I can be notified.  Wink

Then I will probably keep boycotting.

I am fed up with the "panty waist" antics from all of these disgruntled liberals, politicians, and the media.

One other thing. I am tired of being told "they have a right to protest." No they do not when they are on company time to play football for a team.

You want to protest, fine, but do it on your own time.

And that last president engineered this hate, divide, and lawlessness with a fine-tooth-comb.

He spent 8 years convincing minorities to hate, to believe they are worse off now than 1950 or 1850.

It's divine intervention that Trump is in office to dead-end it.

Giving Hillary 8 years to close the deal, would have made America all done.


Yep, it's Obama's race war coming to fruition.

The NFL is selectively violating their own rules.  They need to enforce their own rules. Kneeling, standing arm in arm, hiding in the locker room during the National Anthem, and keeling before the National Anthem is conveying a personal message which disrespects the flag and country.  The 2017 OFFICIAL PLAYING RULES OF THE NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE (Rule 5, Section 4, Article 8, page 23) clearly states that these actions are not allowed and penalties are clearly stated.
