Guess The NFL Eagles got The Message

Recommended Posts

I don't watch Football because it's really a silly game. Adults tackling each other and people paying millions of dollars to see it. I watch the Super Bowl for the party. LOL. If I was going to protest anything, it would be when it makes the MOST impact. Politics aside. What better time than when football is on TV and millions of people are watching?

I will agree that they got the attention they wanted (negative mostly ) by protesting at televised sporting events. What I don't think most of them thought through (or cared maybe) was that the overwhelming majority of Americans are not tuning into a ball game or awards show to hear their agenda, whether we agree or not. The average movie star in Hollywood would probably be working as a waiter or at a fitness club, if they hadn't caught a break, and the average NFL player will be either in prison, working fast food, or turning signs on a street repair crew when their 5 years of fame are over. These are not people whose opinions matter to most of us, and they are turning many of us against their chosen profession. Not smart job security.

Shepard is the lone exception along with the williams guy who both slant towards dems. But people like Hannity who peddles conspiracy theories is the star of fox. So when your star is purposely misleading the public then FOX is worthless. Yes CNN and others slant the other way as well. But knowingly running conspiracy theories makes you lose all credibility. Remember he ran the story about Rich even though he was given deails to the contrary before doing the show. Now he is peddling the "spygate" conspiracy. Even though those that were given the intelligence briefing have said that the FBI did EXACTLY as they should have. You can never get a 100% true story from any news channel and have to understand what slant to expect by what channel you watch. But conspiracy theories should be on A&E and not fox.

You are falling into the liberal trap.  The Hannity show is an opinion show and not a news show.  Same for many shows on Fox.  You can't compare opinion shows to pure (or what should be pure) news shows.  Apples and oranges.  CNN runs opinion as news and that's where the left goes off the rails.  There and places like MSLSD (MSNBC), NBC, ABC, etc.  Fox News is not a pure news outlet, never was, and never said they were.  The fact that their opinion shows crushed all other networks at the time led the other left leaning cable news outlets to jump on the crazy train of opinion shows, but they try to call theirs all news.  

But this is an old thread that suddenly popped up so Father Time could take another (failed) run at some he has struggled with lately on other threads......

the problem with all the so called news networks cnn ,fox ,abc etc... is people listen and take what they say as all fact and honestly if a news show does say something it should be A FACT and as stated before the opinion shows are just that opinion or something that has been obtained through a source not yet confirmed .I take very little from any of them fox included as fact until i do my own search anyone with a little sense can look on the web and come to his / her own conclusion start reading news from other countries read some comments from around the world you may be surprised of the information you find...

:headscratch:  this is beyond me SMH when i grew up if  someone didn't like what  i  said they  just moved on or said there  peace proved me wrong or called me a dick  LOL no harm , today when someone doesn't agree with my view or politics  I'm   a racist, islamaphobe whatever the word of the day is.. sad thing is they have no proof of what they say and they have no real response for not liking me or my politics...but   trump and his supporters are the issue...I live half hour out side atlantic city and have heard stories about his kindness to minorities the difference is I think unlike those that say he's racist he don't care what people think and don't need what he does advertised....

Very enlightening how you described Growing UP.   I grew up amongst Many Veterans some even from The Spanish American War My Grandfather for One.  Along with Veterans from WW-1 - WW-2 - Korean. And My self Navy 1958 - 1962 Cold War. In all those years I never heard any disrespect for Those Serving or Veterans,  The American Flag -  Bible - Cops. The respect was Taught and Ingrained from My Parents - Teachers - Church. The Navy Taught Respect. Honor, Duty to God and Country. You saluted the Flag & the Uniform not the man in it, Being in The Navy Honor Guard DC doing many Funerals in Arlington it Taught me Humility.  Enter Vietnam        ( Policing Action. ) LOL  Social Media, Hate- Unrest Political Unrest and lack of Trust in The Presidency. Draft Dodgers Hate groups. Collages Taking Sides so-called Journalists covering it. Drugs gaining a foothold amongst the Troops and Society.  All That is like a Forest Fire gone wild till we reached Today.                                                             Only just over 1 % serve in the Military with many More Veterans than at any other time.                                                   Every Thing They fought for has been Bastardized.  Just reverse the order of the Past.                                                          24-7 News most Bias  & fake, Instant internet access,  The mass majority with no clue as to what the Veterans have gone through to give them the rights they take for granted.  The American Flag made at the birth of States and The Star Spangled Banner Composed during a Battle is that symbol of all the sacrifices Americans Made in all the Wars for independence It is not a Tool for protesting or Disrespecting And has Nothing to do with any 1st 2 nd or any other rights one may conceive of.   The President of The United States came to the Defence of The Flag and Anthem. As all Americans should. But Enter The Anti Liberal, Socialist, Communists, Leftists Groups who Never Served and an agenda to Tear down America and Its duly Elected President.  In case anyone has to be reminded of America and Americans are what this country was Founded on and Fought and many Died for.              One Of those rights is you can stand for any causes, Speak your Minds. But when you Disrespect MY FLAG  My ANTHEM You are disrespecting Me & MY Family Members who Served Died. along with the Million others who did likewise.   Don't Tread On Me. Love it or Leave it.  Stand with The Fallen, Semper Fi, are not just catchphrases it is the code I live by. You may have your Code and Opinions. so be it.  Amen.

I did not serve as with a majority of people. I did not DODGE the draft like Trump did.  Do you hold it against him? President Bone Spurs.  Do you respect Mueller for his service?

i just had a debate with my father inlaw  over the nfl flag /anthem kneeling because he feels that its not our business and if owners let it we need to mind our business I myself never served  but i was taught to respect flag. he doesnt understand that it has nothing to do with the president   its respect of the nation  and all those who served and and most importantly those who died serving so we can have our opinions there is a time and a place for all that....

I did not mean any disrespect asking if you served. just putting a point together.  I respect all who served Honorably.  And some who Served like Mc Cain who Came out in Perfect Health while the Prisoners who were released with him in Bad health. And their stories suppressed as to How and why.  The decisions The president made he has to live with them. One doesn't just Dodge or refuse to Serve Can you give the circumstances involved with that. Buying ones way out of The service is nothing new.  Deserting is something inexcusable and should never be Pardoned.  I respect Muller and anyone else like I said who served honorably.  as to the ones who never served I respect them also but not when they Disrespect The Flag - Anthem - Veterans -. If anyone has any issues with me I invite them to come with me To The Lyons Hospital and Menlo home Orange Va Hospital. to visit and see Americans who served and have Issues with today's going ons.  see what happens when you talk Trash with any of them or their family's be they Gold Star or Blue Star.

If the NFL players want to kneel during the National Anthem which has a lot of meaning to our Vets and others who have lost family members defending our country, I have every right to go to their Mother or Fathers funerals and yell curse words at the top of my voice.......right?

There is a place and time for everything, they should show some class.

How can U do that when they don't know who their Fathers are. If they had a Father they might not be doing the disrespect. If I did my father would put his Boot to my Butt.
