Disgusting overpaid CLOWN ACTIVISTS wearing football uniforms have ruined the sport. Millions of people aren't going to even care about these whiny "oppressed" athletes as they lose more and more viewers over time. Adios $billions of ad dollars!

You have to admit that there’s something kinda messed up when players, who are ensured by virtue of labor contracts, of $700,000 a year, ( league minimum) kneeling for injustice in the very country that they, people of color, are able to reach heights that are only dreamed of by most others in this country and around the world. I would respect these guys if they put their own, not donors, money toward the actual problem. Their kneeling is just as symbolic of the cause of Floyd’s death as it is in memory of it. Judgemental rich people living the dream as they condemn the act of sleeping. Free college, free degrees, free clothing, free food, free privledge all around - they have no idea about real life. Most were treated as special from the time they displayed their talent. Most live in huge house in gated and guarded communities. I very much doubt that they really relate to those in poverty or those who are doing what they feel they have to to get by

And as usual President Trump is 100%correct about this. If You can't stand for our flag and anthem then take you butts back to whatever 3rd world garbage hole your folks come from.

How about denouncing the real problem of ongoing police brutality against Blacks? But he is just pandering to his cult so they keep following him after he leaves office. Pathetic.

Thanksgiving is for giving thanks, not for football players to protest.

Why such disrespect during such a holiday? Your kneeling will not bring anyone together, but further apart.

Good. Protesting during the national anthem is in extremely poor taste.

I'm amazed people are triggered by this innocuous protest.
