    @Justin if the announcer asked everyone to put on a hat, would hat wearing suddenly be a sign of respect? Does the Pope keep his official hat on? Sounds to me like a bunch of crap that someone made up.

    And no, none of my coaches punished anyone that stood instead of taking a knee. Talking while he was talking got you called out because that’s something that is actually disrespectful.

    @Island Bucs the players aren’t protesting the economic conditions of black people. They are protesting the fact that police murder unarmed people and get away with it.

    They protest at work during the anthem because millions of eyes are watching and the ESPN guys start talking about it. Why the anthem? Because neither Obama or Trump have done sht to mitigate police killings, but Trump will whine and moan and demand harsh punishment when a police officer gets killed by a citizen.

    Or as @potus would tweet, #unfair! #sad!

    We should ban the national anthem during all games. It’s a goddamn football game for god sakes. Why all this phony, pro-military, jingoistic patriotic nonsense during a game?

    Anyone with an independent mind would NOT be pro-military. I support the troops and I empathize with their plight. They’ve all been lied to. If you really supported the troops you would bring them all home. If not, your’e just a phony lying sack of shit. Fuck the president and fuck the military leadership.

    @buccnation
    – I guess my point is, this wouldn’t be such a thing if Mr divisive wasn’t in the oval office.

    Obama or Trump? They are both divisive. Depends on what side of the fence you are on.

    And just like that 25 countries would be nuclear. Great plan.

    Players are no longer required to stand on the field for the National Anthem. That is how it was up until a few years ago. Can’t get much more fair than that…

    “The players … I would say, they’re more confused by the move than anything,” Bucs player rep Ali Marpet said.

    Great! One more thing our confused offensive line needs to worry about before a game.

    Does not apply to the workplace.

    So our imperialistic overreach is really just our global duty to keep the world free from nuclear weapons. Wow. You’re drowning in the kool-aide.

    If it were Tom Brady taking a knee for police killings, would there be all of this?

    Would it be said that he was disrespecting the flag?

    I bet the first comment from the league and trump would be, “we need to look into
    what is troubling Tom!”

    What’s next, we have to stay in our houses, because we don’t conform to certain thoughts of others.

    You are damn right, if disrespecting the flag means so much to the NFL, fans, and the President
    they should shut down the concession stands and bathrooms while the anthem is being played.

    This is so damn hypocritical it’s sickening. We wonder why people are doing stupid shit and mass
    murdering in this country. We as adults don’t even care that kids are looking at this crap, that’s
    the bad part.

    Don’t care that kids are looking at what? How does this have anything to do with the mass shootings and school shootings?
