I had a great experience today I was at a breakfast restaurant talking to a black sheriffs deputy in uniform we were watching the morning news about Trump and the NFL I said to him looks like everything is going to HEll in a hand basket. he said you know he's right (president trump). These overpaid millionaire athletes playing a kids game show no respect to the country and its flag that allows them to make all this money. He said I have no problem with them voicing their believes or protesting or doing something in their communities to try to make their communities better and be more pro active however I do have a problem with them using the NFL and a game that people watch to relax and enjoy as a platform they need to do this on their own time

Need to get a petition together, names of all Americans who will turn off the game as soon as they see a player sitting out the National Anthem, send that to the Neilson company so they can adjust their ratings numbers. The less viewers they actually have the less money they get from advertising. Also possible targeted boycotts of any company that advertises during a game for a team that has players sitting out, losing advertisers would hurt even more. The makers of Budweiser and Miller are both strong union companies, organize the unions to threaten a strike unless they pull advertising from team games with players sitting out. OUCH!!!

George Foreman blasts Kaepernick and Durant over protests

George Foreman (main) spoke out on the Offended America podcast on Monday, saying that athletes who protest are likely seeking attention. Kaepernick (top right), an NFL quarterback currently seeking a contract, famously kneeled during the national anthem before games last season. Durant (bottom right) has announced that he wouldn't visit the White House with NBA champs the Golden State Warriors, saying of President Donald Trump: 'I don't respect who's in office right now.'

I AGREE!!!!

Kaepernick should 'find a country that works better for him' if he wants to sit for National Anthem, says Trump in attack on NFL star's Black Lives Matter protest

Donald Trump thinks Colin Kaepernick should 'find a country that works better for him'

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump says San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick should 'find a country that works better for him' if he won't stand for the National Anthem. Trump said of the controversy Monday: ''I have followed it and I think it's personally not a good thing, I think it's a terrible thing,' Trump told KIRO radio's Dori Monson in advance of a visit to Washington State.'
