Breast cancer is a ongoing battle, and claims more lives a year than 9/11 did. That's just one year. Don't compare the two please. I know you guys are all emotional about this, but think.
i think the reason that we take this seriously, is because of how recent it happened, and how football played a part in getting the entire society back on the track of "normal" when it happened. to compare it to wars and battles is ridiculous when this was basically an attack on our views and ideologies, and on us as an entire nation, all while being done right in the countries biggest city, visible to all. very different.

Wrong. Try foreign policy.

Well, from what I've seen the last few seasons, I would not say they were too smart to fine players over this. Frankly the fines have been getting ridiculous over clean hits, players showing deceased players respect (Tilman) etc. Glad they relented on this.

You sure about that? How do you explain the many other attacks Islamic extremists commited such as the Luxor Massacre (Primarily Swiss victims), The Qahantaniya bombings (Yazidi victims) etc, The Jordan Wedding Massacre (Jordanian Moslems). Was it their foreign policy?

That is what we did with Pearl Harbor, remembered those who lost their lives after the war was over. We didn't cheapen it to a national lovefest.
On the 10th Anniversary I think red/white/blue should be mandatory, It's the 10th Anniversary. Happened on American soil why not red/white/blue. Really if you want to mourn IMO no games should be played but if where going to play then red/white/blue it is.

They should all be fined.

Adam Carriker is a cool dude to follow on Twitter. He's actually responded to a couple of my Tweets to him.

If you want to talk about this, start a thread in the Off Topic forums and I'll discuss it, not going to in the football forums. That said, your link shows nothing.

Yeah but with other fines it's always been about the individual. This is an issue that affects a lot of players over the entire league. The Commish will never be afraid to chuck a big fine towards one player, superstar or not. Lance Briggs isn't the only one who got special equipment and had plans to wear it.

With all that being said, I like you and respect your opinions. Welcome to the board!

You make a good point, as does nonniey above. Obviously it is mistaken to argue, as others have done, that the al Qaeda problem is ONLY a result of US foreign policy. That is overly simplistic.

That said, there are reasons why al Qaeda is so fixated on attacking the USA rather than other "unIslamic" states such as, say for example, Uruguay. We have made foreign policy errors in the Muslim world going all the way back at least to the orchestrated overthrow of Mossadegh in Iran in 1953.

It is not just that we stand in the way of al Qaeda's unrealistic dream of a pan-Islamic empire because we are so powerful. We also have made some mistakes.

I agree 100% with you both. It is such a terrible dark day in USA history, that I get upset whenever the news covers it each year and when they write everything about it. It's just one of those things that is so bad that I dont think anybody should put it on TV again and again. It must be hard for the victims of 9/11 to gain any kind of peace when the media and everybody are ramming it down their throats.

I might be in the minority but I think TV and retail stores are still milking 9/11 for any money that they can make off it. It makes me mad to go into a place like Wal-Mart or somewhere like that where they have millions of T-shirts on racks that say "9/11 we'll never forget" and the shirt is made in bangladesh or some other p.o.s. country a million miles away and none of the money even goes to a charity or anything like that for victims of 9/11.

I remember also when Snyder put out the 9/11 Commemorative Redskins Hat that had a little flag on the side of it and it was like 40 bucks or something. I thought it was deplorable that he would try to make a buck off all those lost lives.

I agree with patriotism, believe me, but it has its place. And I dont think on the anniversary of the nation's worst tragedy everybody should be all rah rah rah with the red white and blue. People should wear black, because it is a time of mourning, IMO.
