We have all this racist anti American kneeling at football stadiums. Here is how to fix it.

When it is time for the game to start, simply put a picture of the President on the jumbotron, announce stand for the National Anthem or kneel before the president.

Problem fixed!!!

Because those are their only options? The players couldn't walk out and then drag the owners on social media for being racists and bullies? :think:

Do what I do. Watch the games and enjoy them as usual but do not purchase any products that sponsor the nfl until it stops. Make running ads and putting their logos on nfl products finacial suicide for those companies. That will put an end to this.

Then remove the national anthem from sporting events

Stop flyby's by the military, prevent politicians from paying for stadiums, stop government funding of sports and so on

Since when has sport not been about politics? You're even supposed to stand before the national anthem and you say that's not political?
Sports are often about two teams of different colored uniform trying to win the other before a cheering crowd, and that's not political?
Sports usually are sponsored by multinational brands who happily pay the teams to be living billboards, and that's not political?

On a serious note: I call out all of the idiots who continue watching sports and spending money on them while players and owners try to force their political beliefs on people who want nothing more than to watch sports. I read a study/poll the other day that made my eyes roll. It said that nowadays more Americans now support the players and the teams than they did just a few years ago. BUT, that is NOT the issue. The only people that really matter are the people who pay money for tickets, merchandise, and contribute to TV ratings. In other words, the very people who are paying the owners and the players money. If you polled them you would find that a very huge majority don't want this PC SJW rammed up their asses against their will. The Americans who don't pay the player's and owner's salaries have no dog in the fight. I actually get really pissed at the fans of sports for bitching about this while still continuing to pay the owners and the players their salaries. They need to grow some man and woman balls and stick their middle fingers up at all sports and say goodbye forever. The jumbotron shouldn't have anyone in the stadium or on tv watching it. Sports can go to hell and stay there.

Kneeling is racist and anti-American?

Peaceful protests are clearly forbidden by the Constitution. Specifically, in the First Amendment. /s

You first. :shrug:

If you're going to inject the anthem and the flag into sports then you're going to inject an opportunity for these players to tell you how they feel about that flag and the anthem, and this country. If you can’t handle that criticism I suggest you change the channel. :boohoo:

Why fix it?

People are finding other things to do with their time.

Playing the National Anthem before games is a TRADITION. It is just another thing the radical left is against and wants to eliminate.

Well it sounds like he's rather restricted with where he can kneel and thus isn't all that free.

And? I don’t care if hurt white people stop watching sports. Maybe the owners do. Athlete contracts keep going up so I don't think they care so much.

Most aren't hurt at all.

They realize that there are healthier activities beer, chips, and TV.

None of those links prove people disgusted with politics in sports are turning off the tv and putting down the potato chips to go hike in the woods.
