You’d expect top-tier athletes to be quicker learners than this, wouldn’t you?
To hear this player tell it, WE are the slow learners.
New York Giants defensive end Olivier Vernon took a knee during the national anthem prior to Thursday night’s game at Washington, bringing his streak of doing so to nine games.
“What it would take for me to stand is if people can understand what the whole message is behind it,” he said. “That would actually help a whole lot, but everybody doesn’t see things that way and tries to distort what the message was from the beginning, which is basically social injustice on African-Americans and police brutality.”
He explains what it would take for him to stand up.
On #Thanksgiving dude? While the Anthem is sung by a Master Sergeant of the United States Army to honor the United States of America ? Disgusting and dispicable. Turning off the game #NFL pic.twitter.com/LtzvPm4Yt4

We have to change. We have to ‘understand’.
It’s not that HE has to realize he’s biting the hand that feeds him, that he’s turning the very people who buy tickets and provide ratings.
And without that? Who’s gonna sign his cheques?
Not exactly genius material that we’re working with here, is it?
It should surprise nobody that Trump got the last word.
The Effeminization Of The American Male

That is, if the man-child will put down his frappuccino; shut the hell up and listen and obey everything he instructs them to do in his timely and tornadic tome.

A shirt that aptly describes the NFL — No Fans Left.
NFL’s TV ratings are plummeting as more players refuse to stand for the national anthem. It’s hard to believe that a nation that has given these players the opportunity to achieve so much is so easily disrespected. Even worse, consider the men and women who have laid down their lives so that these athletes could live in a relatively safe country and enjoy their fame and fortune.
Hard-working, patriotic Americans don’t want to watch a bunch of whiners play football. They want to watch winners.
And the best part? This shirt is made in the USA, printed in the USA, on an American-Made t-shirt press!
