You realize that seeing as almost everything they have tried to ruin Trump has failed, now they have to see if they can go for the hard core sports fans and destroy him there.

It is unfortunate that having gone through a raised Muslim President - we now have players with issues with the national anthem.

We once more are on another slippery slope as anarchists burn the American flag, which some of my friends died  trying to protect, and that is part of their free speech.

It is a soap opera, and another attempt to divide the nation and find yet another spot to ruin Trump with.

You realize of course that young people watch all this as well as the older people and they are learning to be defiant and we are losing the core moral values and God which our nations founders believed in.

So, all other attacks gasping for credibility, yet another Social Justice Warrior crusade to ruin one our relaxing and enjoyable past times - playing and watching football.

I was on the Varsity football team in high school, got a letter,  and despite not being the major fan of sports others are, have done my share of watching and cheering teams.

Are we going to let the anarchists even destroy one of the few escapes left?  I hope not.

This was nothing that Trump did not richly deserve.  They are not anarchists.  They are ordinary, patriotic people who have a legitimate point to make.  They made their point in a non-violent way.

The slippery slope is polished daily by Trump himself.  He fails to condemn racism. He lies with impunity.  He drags his respected country into that swelling swamp of corruption he promised to drain, until America herself starts to stink; and that is utterly, absolutely, bloody unforgivable!

The national anthem was not insulted.  Trump was.

In my opinion, with good reason.

For God's sake hurry up and impeach him America.  Before he ruins you, or worse, starts world war III by baiting other leaders into pressing the button.

who is this "THEY" you speak of ?

Trump started this mess

people responded

he needs to man up and start accepting responsibility for his MANY failings
he opened up this can of worms,when he wasn't playing golf that isLOL

he is tearing this country apart

Trump supporters are the MINORITY,you consistently FAIL to acknowledge this MED

the rest of us are wide awake and see what is going on

pretty soon 2/3 Americans are going to be "taking the knee" in open defiance of a President
who is apparently a borderline FASCIST at heart

Ps.  Being defiant when you see a wrong being committed, Is morally correct.  

Morality is not being eroded by the protesters.  It is being demonstrated, LOUDLY.

Finally, to quote you:  "yet another Social Justice Warrior crusade to ruin one our relaxing and enjoyable past times - playing and watching football. "

Why should someone doing the right thing spoil your enjoyment?  Come to that, a game, however enjoyable, is not as important as democratic freedom and social justice.  Did you forget that?

Trump is widely considered to be the guy who lead the USFL to its demise. He "destroyed" the league, screams the headline of a piece published by Esquire.

Trump REALLY needs to stay away from football Tongue

he was plenty busy abusing women,playing golf,and looking for trophy wife #4LOL

It is interesting when one of Trump's own friends & supporters, Robert Kraft (owner of New England Patriots), breaks with him publicly: 


"I am deeply disappointed by the tone of the comments made by the President on Friday," a statement by Kraft read.  "I am proud to be associated with so many players who make such tremendous contributions in positively impacting our communities. Their efforts, both on and off the field, help bring people together and make our community stronger. There is no greater unifier in this country than sports, and unfortunately, nothing more divisive than politics. I think our political leaders could learn a lot from the lessons of teamwork and the importance of working together toward a common goal. 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."

Why I stand for the national anthem, and why I will never force anyone else to stand

https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/9/24/1701051/-Why-I-stand-for-the-National-Anthem-and-why-I-will-never-force-anyone-else-to-stand


When you stand for the national anthem on your own, it is patriotism. When you are forced to stand, it becomes nationalism. 

I would rather be in a stadium where only half the people are standing because they want to than in a stadium full of people standing because they are forced to. If someone decides not to stand during the national anthem, I will be right there defending that choice. The rights granted us by the First Amendment are far more important than standing for the national anthem."

Part of an interesting analysis from the BBC

Originally posted by BBC BBC wrote:

Before Donald Trump was a politician or even a reality television star, he was a professional football owner. The league was the star-crossed USFL in the mid-1980s, and the team was the New Jersey Generals.

Then real-estate magnate Trump bought the team in 1984 and helped encourage the USFL, which was then playing its games in the spring, to move to the autumn, where it would go head-to-head with the NFL.

The NFL crushed the fledgling USFL. Mr Trump unsuccessfully tried to sue the larger league for antitrust violations, many teams went bankrupt, and the USFL eventually folded.

Fast forward to 2014, and Mr Trump had another run-in with the NFL, when he tried to buy the Buffalo Bills team. He was outbid by an energy-sector billionaire and - in a move that should now be quite familiar - took to Twitter to vent his anger.

"Even though I refused to pay a ridiculous price for the Buffalo Bills, I would have produced a winner," he tweeted. "Now that won't happen."

He also called NFL games "boring" and "too soft", adding that he was glad the deal didn't go through.

In other words, Mr Trump has a longstanding grudge against the NFL - and if there's one thing we know about the president, it's that he likes to settle old scores.
