The English love that word. For some reason here it is very taboo. But the English throw the C word around like we say Bitch.

Its just a word, if it offends you, then you give it power if you ignore it, it is meaningless.

I have a mom, a wife, a daughter and a sister because some half wit on the internet said Cunt that is suppose to be offensive to me/them? LOL! Just shows the half wit's lack of vocabulary; nothing more.

Giantone, look at this opportunity before you....you could be the flag bearer of a new movement. How will you structure the protest, will you be bending knees, referring to the hurtful word as the "C-word", etc.

Re: How Much Longer until the NFL no longer does the national anthem?

I think teams trying to make it a "unity" thing are unnecessarily complicating things. Let players do what they want -- stand, kneel, sit. But I feel like its my white privilege showing when I say "meh, I just want to watch football and not all this other social PC crap" when that "other social PC crap" is very important to a lot of Americans.

Certainly social injustice is more important than football, but do I value football over injustice to others? An injustice that maybe 5% of me can relate to. I feel like I say I care but in words only. The moment it messes with my football or requires more than passing token words ..... meh, idk.

Complicated stuff. Much too complicated to be rationally discussed in the confines of a football game.

How many of these players do anything to advance social justice and equality beyond taking a knee before a football game (which is the team's time not their own time)? I suspect that percentage is even lower than those who voted.

These players are willing to take a knee in protest before a game they are getting paid to attend but I doubt they would take a second of their own time to march in a protest or do something else to advance the cause of social justice and equality. This is 90% for show, 10% protest.
Not trying to throw gas on a fire or anything but you also have to figure that many players are not legally allowed to vote from past felony convictions, etc.,. Are there any non-citizen players in the NFL? I'm not saying illegal immigrant, I mean more of a permanent resident / visa, type person.

Re: How Much Longer until the NFL no longer does the national anthem?

Speaking for my self I am having a hard time trying to figure out what the national anthem has to do with what anyone is protesting. To be honest the things that make the US a great place to live is the freedoms we have. I was born and raised in Miami Florida, my family came from Nicaragua and Cuba. I also have Native American in my family. My grandfather (a Cuban) fought for this country. My father was able to make a life for himself and our family because of the opportunities that this country has. That is why I stand for the flag. With that said I am not offended by people protesting in this peaceful manner, I just don't get why the anthem. There is injustice in this country and the world. The worlds history is stained with blood of the conquered and oppressed, but it is up to us as humans to stop and come together. I stand because I feel like standing I say the words because the colonist took the risk to stand up to tyranny and through all the death rose a country. This country is not perfect but it is up to us to teach our children about unity. Thanks for letting me speak guys HTTR
