After meeting, NFL, NFLPA release statement
indicating no change to anthem policy

Yahoo Sports, by Shalise Manza Young

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 10/17/2017 7:08:02 PM

The much-publicized Tuesday meeting between NFL officials, team owners, NFLPA officials and several players lasted about three hours. While there was undoubtedly a lot discussed in that time, it sounds as though there has not been a resolution on a rule change to require that players stand for the national anthem before games. A statement released jointly by the NFL and NFLPA called it a “productive meeting,” and that there will be another session in the future: Today owners and players had a productive meeting focused on how we can work together to promote positive social change and address inequality

Comments:
Of course not. They are just putting things off to see how much they will cave to the filthy thugs in the NFL in order for them to keep their mouths shut. It´s just a matter of degrees how much more they are going to tick of more fans when they have already lost millions of dollars and fans. One NFL player said that Kaepernick was invited to this meeting and didn´t attend. His despicable attorney said he was not invited. That wouldn´t have surprised me in the least if they kissed up to his sorry butt.

In the past, police and prosecutors have turned a blind eye to the criminals in the NFL. One wonders, with the players so unpopular, will some of these police and DAs now start to treat criminal NFL players like everyone else? It would be true social juctise if these criminals actually had to face the consequences of their actions.

I do not want equality. The guys that invented all this tech equipment on my desk are a lot smarter than me. If they were not, we would be still using lead pencils. So I am grateful for inequality.

There is no such thing as "productive meeting" at this juncture. They should now focus on "damage control". And the only solution is, to swallow their PRIDE, and start enforcing the rule, AND immediately terminate those who insist on taking the knee during the anthem. Tough pill to swallow, but better now than later before being cornered into bankruptcy.

Is there an operational manual that states the players will stand for the national anthem, or not?

If so, I´m presuming this is part of their collective bargaining agreement.

They are in violation of their own union work rules, I believe.

No change to the anthem policy = ratings continuing to crash and burn

Talk about NOT knowing your base at all!!!!!

20 years from now, when the NFL is a distant memory, economics textbooks will write whole chapters dedicated to the absolute stupidity of the NFL owners and the NFL itself in going from massively successful to dead within a few short years -- a victim of stupidity on a massive scale (by owners, players, and the league).

Who decides what´s positive social change is?

To me it is working hard, staying off welfare, not being a criminal, not having babies without a daddy in the family, no drugs and not playing the victim in life.

I think that is not what they had in mind though. I am sure it is about what we have to give them for free to keep them happy. Once the NFL and others start being extorted by these thugs it will never stop.

Webster´s Dictionary needs to add an additional example to the definition of stupid.

Funny thing is the owners are even more stupid than the players. Billionaires controlled by thugs et al.

Just out of curiosity, how do the white players feel? Not sure if any of them were represented at the meeting. That would require that I still give a damn.

You have had numerous chances and you still choose to spit in the eyes of your fans, your country, your military and your first responders. RIP NFL. Actually, Rest in Hell NFL.

Be very careful what you wish for!

A complete El Foldo.

The owners are afraid of their black players and have too great a financial interest in them not to go along to get along.

And as to the fans, well, as the owners see it they´ve got ´em hooked and its just a matter of relying on the short public memory and some euphemistic sugar glaze to get them over this unexpected speed bump. I´m sure they fully expect everything to be back to business as usual by playoff time, if not sooner. Whether they´re right or not will be determined soon.

Obama’s current office, which is run by former de facto President Valerie Jarrett, is just a mile or so from the White House. It is at that location one sees a daily procession of donors, political operatives, party affiliates (BOTH Democrat and Republican) media friends (of which there are many) and more shadowy figures representing a myriad of foreign interests. And each day this office and its two primary inhabitants – Obama and Jarrett, are asked the same question: WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT TRUMP?

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi will appear as a guest judge on “RuPaul’s Drag Race: All Stars.” Her appearance on the drag-queen competition show has already been filmed, her office told the Washington Post. “She had a ‘fabulous’ time,” Pelosi’s spokesman told the paper. Pelosi’s longtime support of the LGBT community and what she sees as attacks from the Trump administration on the gay and transgender community underscored why she wanted to appear on the show. The new season begins Jan. 25 on VH1.

The Trump administration launched a division at the Health and Human Services Department on Thursday to protect doctors and medical providers who object to participating in abortions and assisted suicide on religious or moral grounds. Officials said the division, part of the HHS’ Office of Civil Rights, will stand ready to assist health care workers who say they’re being coerced into participating in procedures that violate their beliefs. Democrats strenuously objected, saying it will restrict health care access to women or transgender patients. They’re already fuming over President Trump’s attacks on Planned Parenthood and his decision to curb Obama-era rules

The Food Network star has long been pals with the now-disgraced former “Today” anchor, and the two were spotted in 2011 spending time together on a beach in Barbados. In 2013, they had dinner together in New York City. Their friendship has caused speculation they were an item, but they have denied their relationship was more than a friendship.

Oklahoma Republican Rep. Jim Bridenstine, the White House’s choice to head NASA, will bring Bill Nye “The Science Guy” to President Donald Trump’s State of the Union address at the end of the month. The choice raised some eyebrows, given Nye’s politics, but the former children’s TV host also heads the Planetary Society, which is the world’s largest space exploration advocacy group. The Planetary Society lobbies Congress to fund NASA space programs. “It is an honor to have ‘The Science Guy’ as my guest at the State of the Union Address,” Bridenstine said in a statement released on Thursday.

(Snip) A source familiar with the committee’s business told The Daily Caller earlier this week that there was a growing feeling among Republicans on the committee that Schiff was using the release of the transcript to score political points by making it seem like Republicans wanted to keep Simpson’s testimony a secret.

Pope Francis has conferred the title of “Commander of the Pontifical Equestrian Order of St. Gregory the Great” on Lilianne Ploumen, a Dutch politician and vocal agitator for abortion rights.

WASHINGTON- President Donald Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy, with its steady growth, low unemployment, busier factories and confident consumers.But in the year since Trump´s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Barack Obama.Growth has picked up, but it´s not yet clear if it can sustain a faster expansion. Hiring and wage growth actually slowed slightly from Obama´s last year in office. Consumers and businesses are much more optimistic, but their spending has yet to move meaningfully higher.

A crazed, bug-eyed Cory Booker, junior senator from New Jersey, blasted Department of Homeland Security secretary Kristjen Nielsen during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing yesterday on immigration. Booker became so unhinged in his staged outrage that he repeatedly threatened Nielsen, with clenched fists pointed in her direction. Equal to Booker´s overt violation of Nielsen´s right to be treated without hostility and intimidation was the deranged content of his tirade.

Republicans are slamming Democratic Sen. Cory Booker for “mansplaining” to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen in a sharp and one-sided exchange Wednesday before a Senate committee. The New Jersey lawmaker blasted Nielsen´s "silence and amnesia" after failing to get the response he sought on her recollection of statements President Trump made in a meeting last week. Booker´s hostile tone prompted Republican National Committee Rapid Response Director Michael Ahrens to invoke the millennial term for males talking down to women.

Men can now look forward to a liberated future of wearing dresses. One such fashion designer, Alejandro Gomez Palomo of Spain, is helping to rush in that new era. According to the 25-year-old Palomo, whose public appearance looks as if Dracula spent a weekend at Liberace´s house, gender fluidity is a way of life he hopes that future men can share. In an interview with AFP, Palomo likened his fashion revolution to the ones ushered by Chanel and Yves Saint Laurent in the 20th century.

Three-quarters of the members of a federally chartered board advising the National Park Service abruptly quit Monday night out of frustration that Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke had refused to meet with them or convene a single meeting last year. The resignation of nine out of 12 National Park System Advisory Board members leaves the federal government without a functioning body to designate national historic or natural landmarks. It also underscores the extent to which federal advisory bodies have become marginalized under the Trump administration. In May 2017, Zinke suspended all outside committees while his staff reviewed their composition and work. In a

Gupta said dating back to 2009, President Trump started to have "these tests that are actually looking for the presence of calcium in the blood vessels that lead to the heart." "Steadily, up until just this past week when he had it performed again, those numbers have gone up," he said. "When they get to a certain range ... that means he has heart disease."
