      Despite Threat Of Boycott, Attendance Increases At Sunday NFL Games

          "Fans angry with the NFL and its protesting players called for a boycott on Veterans Day weekend. But other fans showed up to Sunday’s games, and in greater numbers than they had averaged all season.

          "NFL players protesting during the national anthem have drawn the ire of a significant segment of the fanbase, upset at what they believe is disrespect for the flag and military members’ sacrifice. Almost half, 49 percent, of respondents in a recent poll said they believed the protests were disrespectful to the flag. Many fans have said they would boycott the NFL, and loosely organized movements on Twitter and Facebook sought to flex patriotic muscle by boycotting the entire slate of games this holiday weekend.

          "However, the numbers don’t indicate that any boycotts, if indeed they happened, had a meaningful numerical effect. In fact, total attendance at the eight early games on Sunday, as reported by the NFL, was up about 1 percent over season averages. Here’s the breakdown, with averages prior to Sunday’s games.

          "• Buffalo: Average 68,944; Sunday: 67,501
          • Chicago: Average 61,779; Sunday: 61,285 • Jacksonville: Average 59,553; Sunday: 67,164 • Detroit: Average 63,367; Sunday: 64,646 • Indy: Average 63,801; Sunday: 66,146 • Tennessee: Average 67,356; Sunday: 67,432 • Tampa: Average 60,894; Sunday: 57,911 • Washington: Average: 77,451; Sunday: 74,476"

          Most Texans Kneel During National Anthem To Protest Owner's 'inmate' Comments

              "The Houston Texans, incensed by owner Bob McNair’s poorly worded description of players as “inmates,” staged a mass protest during the national anthem prior to Houston’s game against the Seattle Seahawks.

              "Virtually all Texans knelt for the anthem, locking arms or holding hands on the sideline. National media in attendance put the number of players standing at about 10.

              "At the NFL owners’ meetings last week, McNair had expressed frustration with the way that the protest had affected the NFL’s business, and said, “We can’t have the inmates running the prison.” He apologized on at least two occasions for that unfortunate turn of phrase, but players were not convinced. Receiver DeAndre Hopkins left the Texans’ facility on Friday after learning of the comments.

              "The Texans had discussed several options for protest prior to Sunday’s game, including kneeling, sitting, remaining in the locker room during the anthem or peeling the Texans’ logo off their helmets. Clearly, the protest was large, one of the most significant by any single team to date, but not unanimous.

              "Across the field, several Seahawks players continued to sit for the anthem, as they have done all season:"

                  Recent remarks from the owner of the Texan's football team made most want to leave the building, leave practice, and basically give a middle finger to that organization. Bob McNair was quoted as using the phrase "You can't let the prisoners run the prison!" Quite a few times during the recent ownership meeting, he along with Jerry Jones wish to send a message and a mandate to the players that they must obey. I didn't even have that word in my marriage vows, why would anyone try to use it still? Why do some think their position or money, their race or their religion, their politics and their patriotism is something that can be wielded like a hammer? The same people that believe that they own others rights, own others abilities, or own their minds, are the same that become angry and belligerent when they find out they do not own anything of the sort.

                  I have been saying this for the last twenty years, the NFL is just another form of WWF. There is politics, internal battles between owners and cities, owners and other owners, and the largest stinking pile of manure that is also known as cronyism. Their referees could blow the lid off of it if they weren't in bed with this too, those no calls, too many calls and superstar treatment is enough to make anyone wonder what the rules really are. The backside economy that is the NFL and its minions is so heavy with money shuffling, they should do their own financial speculation for the Fed. What is wrong with the NFL is the same thing that is wrong with the RNC, the DNC, the entirety of the cushy jobs handed out on who you are, not what you can do. There is a reason why cronyism doesn't work, similar to genetics and cloning people, you soon run out of viable material. The material you are left with has huge gaping holes in its DNA, too many health issues and possibilities of brain damage as well. Sound and look familiar?

                  What we have here in the NFL and in Washington D.C. is the same thing, a bunch of cronies trying hard to hold onto their power, their money and their ego's. This was seen coming a mile away, this spin on it too, was a gift to the grand idiot himself and the comrades keep pumping it up to cover for him. The reason why the NFL and establishments of this nature, including our own government cannot stand as they were is because everything has changed.

                  The NFL believes that this issue about the anthem is the reason for their poor attendance and the TV ratings are way down. They ignore the economy that they helped create and fester, where a ticket to a game could feed a family of four for a few weeks, or this whole business about technology and the various ways they broadcast their games. They forget the issue that most fans I know have and that is a TV commercial every ten seconds, and repetitive to boot, who wants to watch commercials for three hours? The talking heads are so a part of the game it is hard to watch your team when one of the announcers is for the other one, worse when it's a home game. They also forget that people are very much against establishment ideals, the ones that look fascist and controlling, because everything has changed, money is no longer power... People are power, and the ability to carry the right message is power. The ability to condemn those who spew divisiveness and intolerance, no matter what their position, their politics, their money that they use to hide their ugly truths, the cronyism and the gutless attacks on people, not principles, but people. It has all changed and the people now hold the mightiest power once more. Some are afraid, too scared to accept that thing did and have changed and will continue to at a rate most can hardly accept.

                  The reason why the NFL and institutions of systematic cronyism such as our own government won't last is simple... They cannot accept change and dare a nation to stand atop a piece of time, not atop its finest principle... Freedom.

                  Green Bay Packer's Fans: Gives Us Kaepernick!

                      Will the team listen to the growing voices of it's fan base asking for the team to reach out to Colin Kaepernick? Green Bay lost their future hall of fame quarterback Aaron Rodgers to regular season ending injury last Sunday, he left the game with a broken collar bone.

                      Kaepernick, the quarterback who started the protest against police brutality by not standing during the playing of the National Anthem in 2016 hasn't been able to find a job since he opted out of his agreement with the San Francisco 49'ers at the end of last season. He walked away from that contract, and the remaining money due him, thinking he would have offers from other teams, but to date he hasn't had any.

                      Jaguars Apologize To Military For Protest During Anthem In London

                      'Protests during the national anthem that began last season and flared to league-wide levels in the wake of President Trump’s condemnation have drawn widespread condemnation from fans. But even though the protests aren’t a criticism of the military—and are permitted by both the NFL‘s teams and the First Amendment—one particular aspect of the protests fired up critics: teams taking a knee on foreign soil during the playing of the national anthem before London games. Critics charged that such a symbolic move was disrespectful to America’s military, and now, at least one team has taken those criticisms seriously.

                      'The Jacksonville Jaguars have sent a letter to Bill Spann, director of Jacksonville’s military affairs and veterans department, apologizing for the team’s demonstration. The team, including owner Shad Khan, locked arms during the anthem, with several players kneeling.

                      'Jaguars president Mark Lamping said the team was “remiss in not fully comprehending the effect of the national anthem demonstration on foreign soil has had on the men and women who have or continue to serve our country.”

                      'Lamping added, “This was an oversight and certainly not intended to send a message that would disparage you, our flag or our nation.”

                      'Jacksonville has a significant military presence, with this letter clearly aimed at bridging whatever rifts may have formed between the team and local military. “The notion never entered the minds of our players or anyone affiliated with the Jacksonville Jaguars, but today we can understand how the events in London on September 24 could have been viewed or misinterpreted,” Lamping wrote. “We owe you an apology and hope you will accept it.”'

                          NFL players, as well as other U.S. athletes, have been taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem for some time now, but Hertha Berlin is thought to be the first European soccer team to do the same. The German national anthem is not usually played before Bundesliga games, and was not on Saturday.

                          “Berlin is colorful,” the Hertha stadium announcer told the fans in attendance, according to ESPN. “Hertha BSC stands for diversity and against violence. For this reason, we are joining forces with the protest of our fellow American athletes to take a stand against discrimination. For a tolerant Berlin, both now and forevermore.”

                          “As Hertha we always fight against racism. For us, kneeling down is a way of fighting against this kind of behavior. It should not exist in any kind of sport. Not in NFL, and not in football or soccer, like they call it in the U.S. — it shouldn’t exist in any sport, period. For us, it’s a good example to show.”

                          NFL Owners To Consider Rule Change For Conduct During National Anthem

                              An Open Letter to the NFL:

                              Mr Goodell,

                              It appears that you are going to review the rules for players and write into your rules that players must stand. It is my interpretation that this would be unconstitutional, against many Supreme Court precedents, and invariably would open the ownership to many drawn out legal battles. Besides the fact that it would be seen and interpreted as a far reaching political grasp, that my Father fought against in WWII.

                              It would be wise for the league to leave things as they are and not try to change the dialogue to something that it is not, this is not a protest that garners any disrespect if the facts are readily presented. Instead of possibly diving the league into a cesspool of litigation and more errs, and possible censure. It would be the most amicable way forward to simply stop the false dialogue before it starts and present the opinions, the constitutionally protected opinions, of the players who are kneeling. Free men are not made to do things against their will and conscious up to and including pledging allegiance to a country that they feel is not holding them to a fair standard.

                              Those military, and patriotic displays the NFL promotes were made political years ago. You may not have seen the fact that the right has for decades co-opted our military as a gerrymandered campaign chip. A move of this magnitude would besiege Washington D.C. with calls for an investigation. As you may be a private entity, there are too many public/private cooperations for you to abandon a vast voting block to please your political egos. In closing, such a move would very much mean the end of any support for the league, my team, and those products. It would very much mean the NFL is over.


                              Thank You
