What's up with NFL football...

I used to love to just kick back and enjoy football to escape all the BS of today's world. I remember back in 1985 Jim McMahon could not wear a headband with the Nike Swoosh on it. What the hell happened? I believe in a persons rights to express themselves but a "time and place." Is a football game a place to display feeling about social justice? Hate those words! They want the crowd to link arms for the Packer game tomorrow night. What for? They say unity. Unity of what? Country? Football? Gender? It is crazy and I plan on watching anything but football. Too frustrating just like so many other things. Political correctness and social justice is destroying our country. We need to get a little thicker skinned and take responsibility for out individual (personal) justice. My opinion...

I know what you're saying, but it is what it is. You speak out against it and they'll call you a racist.

Why ain't we ridin'?

Exactly, you speak anything but leftist and you're racist. I haven't watched those overpaid crybabies in years anyway.

With no God over the state, the state then becomes not the defender of liberty but the definer of liberty.

If I disagree with you it's simply because you're wrong.

It's not just the NFL. I just wish the people would keep their money in their wallets. Money talks. But alas there are too many cowardly apologists out there.

Unity, the only thing that unites us is the fact we are Americans. It doesn't matter about race, gender, religion (or not), wheter or not we like each other, but we are all Americans. To disrespect the flag, country and national athem in the name of unity is wrong in terms of being decisive. The NFL has one more week to fix this or i will be done with them and find something else to do on Sunday, like work on my 1100.

You guys have it all wrong, they're not kneeling in disrespect, they're kneeling in reverence to the flag and country. Like you kneel to show respect to God or royalty. The news media is the one who has turned it around as something shameful. It wouldn't be a story unless they can make it appear bad. Don't you know by now, they are only interested in the negative. Sex and negativeness are what gets the headlines.

Forgive others. Not because they deserve forgiveness, but because you deserve peace.

If your not willing to forgive others, how can you expect God to forgive you.

I find it strange that some schools will spend more on sports than actual education.
