    NFL in pure hate Trump derrangement mode

    This is beyond ridiculous. Now Trump is to blame for these spoiled brats hating America and cops.

    More alienation ... nicely done putz's!!

    You know they were hoping to galvanize fans with anti-Trump sentiments, thus once again showing THEY DON'T KNOW THEIR BASE!!!!

    So the NFL finds Tebow taking a quiet knee to pray unacceptable.

    Then finds a tiny little sticker to honor 5 police officers assassinated by a BLM adherent unacceptable.

    But finds it OK to disrespect the US flag, the nation and the President ...

    And then calls the President divisive?

    The NFL has lost me.

    Which I think is what the Left has wanted to do in the first place ... destroying the "toxic masculinity"

    NFL Ruins Football Sunday

    Are you ready for some politics?

    There was a time, you young people out there, when Sunday was just Football Day.

    America had worked all week, drank a little too much on Friday night, did the chores and mowed the lawn on Saturday, and was all set for a peaceful Sunday watching big men smash into each other. Football Sunday brought the entire family together, as well as friends near and far and, sometimes, the whole neighborhood.

    Sadly, all that is gone. Now, there's politics in everything. (And one other thing, young people: Hollywood award shows, they used to be just that, awards, nothing else. Once upon a time, the best supporting actress just thanked everyone who helped her win the award, she didn't lecture America about blood diamonds.)

    As politics has been infused into nearly every aspect of life, sports has held out the longest. Most of those involved in the games that America watches know that viewers want a break from the world — which means no politics. Even the athletes used to steer clear of politics, choosing to let their skills on the field of play speak for them.

    But politics, like kudzu, has invaded everything, and sports has finally fallen. The new slogan for NFL Sunday will now be: "Are you ready for some politics!?"

    The whole mess exploded on Saturday. President Trump took to Twitter to disinvite Stephen Curry and the Golden State Warriors from visiting the White House amid reports the NBA champs were having a team meeting to decide whether or not to go. The mess spiraled. The whole team decided not to come. NBA stars took to Twitter to fire back.

    Then Trump called out the NFL players who disrespect America during the National Anthem. That brought more reaction from athletes and owners. A major league baseball player, apparently upset that no one was talking about them, even took a knee during the Anthem.

    Now, let's keep this all in perspective. Nearly 50 years ago, President Richard Nixon invited sports teams to the White House. Did they all — every player — agree with Nixon, support the Vietnam War? Did they for Ronald Reagan? George Bush? Barack Obama?

    Of course not. But they went to the White House because the president invited them. They were civil, adult, mature. And when the president invites you to the White House, you go.

    So here's the big point: There's no place for politics in sports. None. Zero. Zip.

    Sports is, for the viewer, an escape from the real world, where we can watch finely tuned athletes play a game at the very highest level. No viewer cares a whit whether Bryce Harper agrees with the president on trade tariffs — nor should they. It's a game — just play it (and make millions while you do it).

    So, how all of this should have gone down is simple: Sports teams should have nixed any protest in the bud. Colin Kaepernick wants to protest against police brutality by refusing to stand during the National Anthem? Fired — with a simple message from the owners: You can do whatever you want on your time, but don't bring it to the stadium.

    You think you could show up to work tomorrow, carry an upside-down flag back and forth on the sidewalk in front of your office? You'd be canned faster than Kaepernick checks his email each morning to see if he got a job. And rightly so: You're supposed to be working. You can, of course, do whatever you like once you're off the clock.

    But the owners don't care about the people who pay their salaries — you. New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft released a statement Sunday, saying, "Our players are intelligent, thoughtful and care deeply about our community and I support their right to peacefully affect social change and raise awareness in a manner that they feel is most impactful."

    So do we all. Just take it off the field. Sunday is sacred: Just play ball.

    And the NFL thinks politics seeping into football is perfectly fine. Commissioner Roger Goodell on Saturday said Trump's "divisive comments" reveal an "unfortunate lack of respect" for the NFL.

    Today, on Football Sunday, expect players in nearly every NFL game to take a knee during the National Anthem — the childish Trump has dared them, and they'll act like children, too, and do it. The guys who should be telling us stats during the game will be talking politics, and across America, the peaceful bond of Sunday football will be broken by a political discussion.

    And that's just wrong. You can have everything else, politics, just leave us Sunday afternoon.

    As Scott Adams just pointed out, Trump caused the NFL to bend the knee, as it were an old fashioned submissive move. Just like Game of Thrones!

    Former Army Ranger Is The Only Steelers Player To Stand For The National Anthem

    Pittsburgh Steelers Left Tackle Alejandro Villanueva was the only player on his team to stand for the national anthem — he's also a highly-decorated U.S. military veteran.

    Steelers head coach, Mike Tomlin, announced on Sunday that his team was taking an unprecedented step in protesting the national anthem by staying in the locker room to “remove ourselves from the circumstances.”

    The decision by Tomlin didn’t sit well with Villanueva, who decided to defy his teammates by being present and standing during the national anthem.

    When disgraced NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick started protesting the national anthem in August 2016, Villanueva was critical of the decision:

    "I don't know if the most effective way is to sit down during the national anthem with a country that's providing you freedom, providing you $16 million a year ... when there are black minorities that are dying in Iraq and Afghanistan for less than $20,000 a year."

    Villanueva, who is of Spanish descent, is a former U.S. Army Captain who served three active tours in Afghanistan and was awarded the Bronze Star Medal for Valor — one of the highest individual awards given by the U.S. military.

    Though he stands 6-foot-9, and served in the military at 240 pounds, Villanueva had to gain nearly 100 pounds in order to play on the offensive line for the Steelers after not being chosen in the NFL draft.

    The Steelers were more concerned about what they were going to do for the anthem than they were for the Bears. Instant Karma. If You're gonna tell me that the entire team was gonna decide to sit for the anthem, I say its bullshit. I'm guessing it was a compromise.

    Exactly. Same thing happened for the Seahawks/Titans game, except all players from BOTH teams were a no-show. What a joke.

    And here's the kicker.. they say they are exercising free speech, but the POTUS can't? The inmates are running the asylum.
