NFL Owners Considering Rule Change Requiring Players to Stand for National Anthem

A politician thinks of the next election. A statesman, of the next generation.- James Freeman Clarke

Politics is supposed to be the second-oldest profession.  I have come to realize that it bears a very close resemblance to the first.  ~ Ronald Reagan ~

 I always thought courtesy and commonsense were a given when someone is paying you to work.
The players aren't the problem, it's the owners of these teams that have dropped the ball as bosses running a business.
Is there not one person here that doesn't know societal rules dictate the responsibility of an employees actions while on the job are in direct effect too a company policy?

If you wear a Tacobell uniform and curse people as they order, or wear KKK on your exposed T-shirt, or blast racist rap music on the job, do you expect to be working there next week?
All these little princeses grew up just like the rest of us, they knew what they were doing was wrong, and knew they had the blessing of the league and its ownership while doing it.

Fuck the NFL, there's nothing American about it, anymore than cricket, fuckem, time to find a new venue, one that actually appreciates its customers and respects its host nation.
These owners are equally culpable, don't let this bull shit move fool any of you! The owners are just as antiamerican as these fucked up players.

I couldn't agree more about the owners. They have the powers to act.

Are they all auditioning to be a GOPe senator?  :lol:

Now that I think of it, the Establishment has been totally mum on the issue. Now that's leadership. :rolleyes:
