The NFL is trying to say players "should" stand. That's true. ... it's also true everyone "should" be treated with respect and not fear police brutality. See how that 'should' works? Let's fix one problem and the other will work itself out.
It's interesting that the NFL and Trump administration hasn't even cared about the root of the issue attempting to understand or address it. Instead, all they care about is the PERCEPTION created by everyone standing.
There IS a real problem here, and its not with the players respectfully taking a knee.
Yes it is. Freedom of speech and protest assures you can't get arrested by your government. It doesn't however protect you from.your job
Last I checked Texas is a right-to-work state and he could bench/fire whomever he wants for any reason...or no reason at all.
People are actually questioning wether or not an employer has the legal right to tell their employees how to conduct themselves at the workplace? Jesus Christ what have liberals and millenials done to this country.
Shut up espn and just stick to sports.
*Edit*Since liberals can't read between the lines
Yes I know this is sports but this is the reason why they are failing in ratings because espn has become political just like the NFL which is why they are losing money which is why the NFL is taking it back and now making policy to change it.
Jerry Jones, nor anyone else, has my permission to use my Military Service as an excuse to suppress another Americans' Right to Free Speech. I put my Life on the line for the Constitution. Not that Flag. The Flag is a Symbol. It is their Right to object. It is not their Right to hijack my Career for their Bigotry and Hate.
When a Green Beret came out & said it was his idea to take the knee b/c it’s a sign of respect...and then armchair patriots kept saying it was disrespectful...I knew which side was correct. Jerry looks like a fool here
The nfl is a private business so technically yes. But it speaks volumes that this is where Jerry draws the line, not domestic abuse, drugs violations or killing a teammate drunk driving.
So what happens when zeke, Prescott, Dez, and witten kneel? All benched? Are you willing to guarantee a loss to prove your outdated and morally wrong point?
Trump wins again, stand you entitled ignorant brats. How many of those players went to volunteer in the inner city after the game? How many have donated any of those millions they've made to this 'cause'?
