Some deep thinkers there....TM77

Amen. NFL (NATIONAL FELONS LEAGUE ) DIFFERENT STROKIES FOR DIFFERENT FOLKS



Why Some Folks Have Come to Despise the NFL



NFL "Refresher" NFL History...history not often reported or leaked to the ticket holders. I hope this helps you; it opened my eyes, to better understand when and why the public’s respect for the NFL organization started to crumble....



* In 2012 the NFL had an issue with Tim Tebow kneeling before each game to pray, they also had an issue with Tebow wearing John 3:16 as part of his eye-black to avoid glare, and made him take it off.

* In 2013 the NFL fined Brandon Marshall for wearing green cleats to raise awareness for people with mental health disorders.

* In 2014 Robert Griffin III (RG3) entered a post-game press conference wearing a shirt that said "Know Jesus Know Peace" but was forced to turn it inside out by an NFL uniform inspector before speaking at the podium.

* In 2015 DeAngelo Williams was fined for wearing "Find the Cure "eye black for breast cancer awareness.

* In 2015 William Gay was fined for wearing purple cleats to raise awareness for domestic violence. (Not that the NFL has a domestic violence problem..).

*In 2016 the NFL prevented the Dallas Cowboys from wearing a decal on their helmet in honor of 5 Dallas Police officers killed in the line of duty.

* 2016 the NFL threatened to fine players who wanted to wear cleats to commemorate the 15th anniversary of 9/11.



So tell me again how the NFL supports free speech and expression. It seems quite clear based on these facts that the NFL has taken a position against any action by NFL players demonstrating RESPECT for any issue:
For God, social causes such as mental health, cancer, domestic violence, for cops killed arbitrarily, for being cops, or for the Memory of 9/11...



BUT they will allow demonstrations of DISRESPECT for our National Flag, our National Anthem, for America , and for the American People, if it will help mollify a particular Group and its supporters. That is who and what the NFL now has shown itself to be.



Pass this post along to all your friends and family, if you believe it worthy of sharing. Honor our military; too many of whom have come home with the American Flag draped over their coffin.

35% of NFL players are either bankrupt, or in deep financial dodo within 2 years of retirement.

70% are bankrupt, or financially broke within 5 years.

I believe that you forgot the part about those Dallas Police officers working the scene of riots stemming from "peaceful" BLM demonstrators.

You see that happen with big money lottery winners also.

i, personally, do not care about the NFL...IMO, football, boxing, MMA are all gladiatorial sports.

it seems to be ludicrous, to me, that a professional athlete (especially boxers and martial arts) who is paid to do his best to stop or disable an opponent would worry about "Social justice" and not the damage they do to an opponent...kinda hypocritical?

it's true about many 'retired' professional athletes and their financial endings...mecury morris, o.j. simpson are only two examples'

you'd think that someone who makes as much as they do would make a sound investment for their future.
