More than a dozen NFL players protested during or right after the national anthem on Sunday, the final weekend of the league’s regular season. Nine Seattle Seahawks players sat or knelt during the anthem prior to the teams’ game, as they have throughout the season. Michael Bennett, Marcus Smith, Frank Clark, Dion Jordan and others were among those demonstrating, The Associated Press reported. Tennessee Titans wide receiver Rishard Matthews remained off the field during the national anthem before his team’s game, while his teammates, Brian Orakpo and Jurrell Casey, raised their fists once the anthem ended. Kenny Stills of the

... and Seattle loses a critical final game to Arizona. The nine Seahawk players are free to sit, kneel, or lie down throughout the playoffs since they wont be in them. Karma.

This doesn´t report whether the fans´ reciprocal boycott protest has remained as persistent as the players´ anthem protests.

Either way, the yearlong non-signing of Kaepernick might not necessarily be the best indicator of Eric Reid´s status. Reid´s actually a good player.

I turned off protest football in September when this bull-excrement first started. I have not turned it back on. I will not be watching the playoffs. I will not watch the Superbowl. And next season, I will probably have to think long and hard before turning it back on. Depends on whether or not this idiocy is still going on.

The NFL used to be fun to watch then somewhere along the way it became a showcase for banks of preening sports analysts, choreographed dancing players, and nonsensical political protests. Money became the only focus, not sport.

College players still love and play the game with heart - they are the real faces of football. It´s really too bad that the NFL devoured itself.

First time in probably 40 years, maybe 50, that I didn´t see a single game. Not sure I even saw any highlights on the news. I saw the games on in a few restaurants, but I averted my eyes. I cannot watch those guys any more than I can watch the NBA. That leaves more time for golf, and tennis, and baseball.

After 50 years of being a die-hard Cowboys fan, I haven´t watched a single game (or even checked on any scores) since Jerry Jones wussed out and kneeled with his thug players.

I will NEVER watch another second of the NFL (or the racist thugs in the NBA either). No boycott for me. A boycott indicates a temporary situation. Nope, just NEVER another second wasted on this horrible league again!!!!!

I truly hope the NFL dies a fast and painful death -- for both the thug players that disrespected our flag, anthem, military, police, and everything else they were "protesting" against, and for the idiot owners who didn´t put a stop to this insanity the day it began!!!!!!!!!

"Knee Jerks" continue their suicidal protests based on a lie. What if they gave a Superbowl and nobody came? Well that is unlikely because a portion of the NFL fan-base has no life without sports, so THEY will tolerate ANYTHING including dis-respect to America and our armed forces, as long as they can watch NFL games ... that´s called ADDICTION.
Remember "JUST SAY NO"? I didn´t think so.

The real shock will hit them when season tickets go on sale. Not only are fans not attending games but the absence of people watching from home can be measured in the huge drop in pizza and chicken wing sales. The end is near. Thanks to all former fans who used to give their Sunday afternoons up to these goons and now have something better to do.

I wounder how many millions of dollars these black thugs have cost the owners so far? The owners who let this continue to happen will suffer even more losses next year.

The fans who stay home and don´t watch these black thugs are protesting for the law enforcement officers who have died by the hands of black thugs. Show your support....stay home.....don´t watch.

It´s going to be even more interesting when the advertisers don´t show up and they won´t be able to get the money they´re expecting for 30 seconds of air time. Not only that, but wait until it´s time to renew contracts!
That´s when their Chickenzzzzzzzzzz will come Hommmmmmmmmmmme to Rrrooooooooooost!
The MFL was targeted by the Left and is sinking because it willingly ate a Politically Correct torpedo deliberately aimed at destroying everything America stands for and football is as big a target as it gets! Radical, bomb-throwing Leftists are doing everything they can to to divide, fracture and destroy the fundamental principles America stands for in the name of fabricated “victimhood” and “racism”! If the MFL leadershipt (Roger Goodell) had simply enforced a few basic standards of Core Values it simply would not be in the predicament it is in! Now they are just giving the American people the middle finger by a bunch of over-paid, worthless, uneducated, uninformed, self-absorbed, celebrity-obsessed, no morals, dope-smoking, crotch-grabbing, leg-lifting-dog-peeing, End-Zone humping, Voo Doo Dancing, Escalade driving, Kool-Aid drinking, short attention span, prima-donna thugs with nasty hair! With a 20% frop in ratings they will pay the price because advertisers and networks simply are not going to cough up the moolah!

I noticed at the end of the Bengals-Ravens game, there was a brief shot of several players kneeling to PRAY, and give thanks. Not sure if that was an accident, or just a brief shot slipped in to begin a rehabilitation with us deplorables who still have a bit of interest in their NFL teams.
The only reason I was watching is that it was about 5 degrees and there wasn´t even a decent move on Turner Classics, or a good Alaskan survival show!

Time to cut the cable as well!That´s my New Year´s resolution. I´m tired of subsidizing commentary I not only disagree with, but will no longer even listen to. The drumbeat of lies being repeated over and over and over until they are then deemed to be truth (which they aren´t) has reached a tipping point for me. I also feel a need to thank my ex wife for that important life lesson too, but that´s another story!

There’s a guy who calls into the Chris Plante radio show who is an expert on the connections between attitude and performance. He has been studying these protests and how they affect the players. And guess what? Almost every time one of these teams protests, they lose.

He says it’s because they go into the game with a negative attitude and it affects their ability to play. I totally get this because I used to compete in karate and my instructor always told us that, if we go into a sparring match thinking that we will lose, we will. Attitude is about 95% of everything.

So, not only are these feral thugs damaging their ability to earn a living, the are setting themselves up for failure.

SACRAMENTO, Calif.— California’s attorney general said Wednesday he is concerned about open-ended immigration sweeps at a time he and other state officials say the Trump administration should be concentrating on deporting dangerous felons.Attorney General Xavier Becerra said while it is the federal government’s responsibility to protect the nation’s borders, the goal should be public safety, not deporting otherwise law-abiding immigrants who are in the country illegally.“We will, as always, work with our federal partners in every respect to go after drug dealers, human traffickers, potential terrorists,” Becerra said. “We’re not in the business of deportation.

Congressional leaders from both parties spoke of Dole’s service in and out of office.House Speaker Paul Ryan called him a man “as honorable as they come” and added “because of you, America is much better.”Dole said he was “extremely honored” to receive the award and

Admiral Dr. Ronny Jackson, the same doctor who treated former Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama, declared Trump to be in “excellent” health.

NBC plans to televise any players who refuse to stand for “The Star-Spangled Banner” at the Super Bowl, but there may be nothing to show. It appears that NFL players are no longer taking a knee during the national anthem, namely because none of the teams with still-active protesters has qualified for the postseason. By the end of the regular season, only five teams featured at least one player regularly sitting or kneeling on the sidelines for the anthem: the Seattle Seahawks, the San Francisco 49ers, the Miami Dolphins, the New York Giants and the Oakland Raiders. None of those franchises made the

Ever since Donald Trump entered the political arena, his intelligence has been viciously attacked and his supporters have been labeled as moronic deplorables. In a recent Trump tweet, the president responded to the most recent attack by saying he is a stable genius. The mainstream media never bothered checking evidence of Obama´s intelligence before one historian declared him "the smartest man with the highest IQ ever to be elected to the presidency", even though his academic records were sealed. What these attacks do prove is who the real brains are and who are the dummies: Alan Dershowitz may be for real

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. Nielsen had stated earlier she did not hear the president say the "s-hole" word at last week´s White House meeting on DACA. Booker went ballistic and accused Nielsen of covering up

From his perch in the Ohio governor’s mansion, Republican John Kasich is keeping a keen eye on President Trump’s every move and showing a willingness — some say eagerness — to hurl rotten tomatoes toward the leader of his party when he gets upset with the act.He has become a go-to anti-Trump source for the media and often doesn’t even wait for the press to call. Instead, he leaps in to pile on after presidential missteps.While insisting he wants Mr. Trump to succeed, Mr. Kasich has pointedly refused to rule out mounting a primary challenge against the president in 2020.

Wednesday on CNN’s “New Day,” Dr. Sanjay Gupta, the network’s chief medical correspondent, proclaimed that based on President Donald Trump’s coronary calcium scores going back to the previous decade, Trump has heart disease. Gupta’s diagnosis came a day after Trump’s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr. Ronny Jackson, offered his assessment of Trump’s health at a White House press briefing. “When you look at the findings you just put up there, Alisyn — this coronary calcium score is a score a lot of cardiologists use to try and be predictive and be proactive,” Gupta said. “And if the number gets up

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

CNN´s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta said Wednesday that he believes tests reveal that President Trump has heart disease. 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." Gupta then talked about his interaction Tuesday with President Trump´s doctor, Navy Rear Adm. Dr.

DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen on Tuesday snapped at Senate Democrats who hounded her repeatedly over whether President Trump said some countries were "s**thole countries" in a meeting last week.Nielsen was testifying at the Senate Judiciary Committee, where several Democrats made a point of asking her about Trump´s reported comment. She said several times that she never heard Trump say those words, but when Sen. Richard Blumenthal, D-Conn., raised it for the fourth time, Nielsen said enough was enough. "Sir, respectfully, I have answered this," she said. "I´ve been very patient with this line of questioning. I´m here to tell you
