NFL’s kneeling comes to abrupt
halt: Protesters miss playoffs

Washington Times, by Valerie Richardson

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 1/16/2018 4:49:27 AM

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

Still not watching a minute of the NFL, this year, or any other...

Maybe now that the kneelers are free from grandstanding at the National Anthem Playing, they´ll all band together during the off season and champion whatever they were actually protesting, action wise? Wouldn´t hold my breath of that?

Let´s see what those kneelers do in the off season besides partying´, chasin´ ho´s, or committing felonies.

It doesn´t matter, the entire NFL officially endorsed this racist and flag-disrespecting spectacle all year. I will do my part in inflicting maximum pain and I hope to hear that this is the first Super Bowl with empty seats and an Oprah-sized television viewer count.

Last year, the only thing worth watching was Tom Brady´s final ten minutes out of the entire four hours. This year I´ll be walking the dog.

Somehow the brief expression of hostile opposition by a bunch of overly pampered multimillionaires doesn’t have the same impact of a Rosa Parks sitting on a bus over 60 years ago. If they expressed this in private in the locker room, I could muster some respect. Otherwise, not.

Nope. Still not good enough, goodall endorsed it and as long as Goodall is the NFL bossman, I do not watch. Period. My life this season without the NFL has been wonderful. I took a sewing class, bought a super nice sewing machine and have been having a grand time with my new skill. My wife is the envy of the block: "You husband sews? OMG!". I also joined a group that helps advise young entrepreneurs on how to turn their business ideas into reality. It´s been incredibly rewarding. Without the NFL kneeling and Goodall, I never would have been part of all that. I never realized how much NFL football was taking away from my life, my family and my community..

I believe NBC is hoping for kneelers at the Super Bowl so they can once again remind its viewers just how racist this country and our President really are. But I don´t watch their news and I´m not watching their Super Bowl for the first time in more than 50 years. Screw the NFL and their social justice bull excrement which is nothing more than a euphemism for hate whitey. I guess Roger Goodell never read the fairy tail of the golden goose and it´s not about designer sneakers?

The truly sad part - - - -

All of the kneeling was based on lies - - gasoline thrown onto the sparks by none other than the President of the United States.

Lies about Ferguson - - about Trayvon - - about Freddie Gray - - about Prof. Gates. All smears and lies against the police fostered by an America-hating marxist.

Even sadder - - the dopes who kneeled will never, ever realize how they were used as idiots.

Kudos to Mr. #10. I tried, I really tried to give a crap about the teams. But I just couldn´t work it into my busy schedule. The guy from 2ndVote said it best. When soccer takes over as America´s favorite sport to watch on TV, thank the pussified NFL and their quasi-leadership. That said, the Vikings would have been my sentimental favorite. May they be the last to bankrupt.

I´m not ruining a perfect season by watching NFL football. I´m on the verge of boycotting the younger ´thugs in training´ with college football next. The thugs of Alabama were just as bad and I´m tired of hair extension hanging out of helmets onto the backs of jerseys. It was refreshing to watch the Army Navy game and not witness that.
The NFL and sports media might talk of dropping attendance this year but they are still counting season ticket sales but wait until next year. Those millionaire knee takers in the future might be negotiating contracts with a payroll more like Terry Bradshaw era figures. When it´s over their next move is taking a knee while working on a UPS dock. Let that sink in but I´m not watching the Planet of the Apes again.

I´m an old NFL fan from the early sixties. It was something I truly enjoyed with my father. I have fond memories of watching the games on Sunday together.

But nothing will make me turn on the TV now. When the NFL owners renewed Goodalls´s contract is when I said finito NFL.
It will never be the same.

A few months ago a behavior specialist called into the Chris Plante show and explained why the protesting teams kept losing - it was because they started out angry and with negative attitudes and it affected their ability to focus on the game and play.

Back when I was in karate, my instructor told us that, if you go into a sparring match thinking that you’re going to lose, you will. Attitude is about 95% of everything in life.

Looks like that specialist was correct.

I hope that the Super Bowl is a bomb.

I did not watch any regular season games.
I did not watch any playoff games.
I will not be watching any super bowl this year.
Your advertisers got zero results from my house this year.
Here´s my deal. I will be back if you bring this anthem and flag protest to a total halt. Until then, Buh bye.

The way I see it, I invite these athletes into my home every Sunday (Monday, Thursday) to celebrate their talents, and they choose to come in and spit on my floor because they have a complaint. So....I´ll do as Delanie Walker (Titans) suggested: If I don´t agree with what they´re doing, just don´t watch. I´m not watching (or supporting, or buying, or cheering) until all of them stop kneeling or hiding in the tunnel, start standing for the anthem, get rid of Goodell, and issue a joint apology to the American people for being mannerless idiots. I think I´ll have a long wait.

As usual, it seemed to come out of nowhere. And, as usual, it didn’t. The murderer who took the lives of 17 people at a high school in Parkland, Fla., was on everybody’s radar, from the school authorities to the local police to the FBI, which failed to follow its own protocols when a person close to the future killer called to warn the bureau that he was contemplating a school massacre. Everybody knew, nobody did anything. What should be done? Gun control, the Left says, always, offering ideas that range from the trivial to the patently unconstitutional. Whatever the

After 18 months of Russia, Russia, Russia, we finally meet a cast of real Russians. But par for the convoluted course, they were pretending to be Americans. The indictments obtained by special counsel Robert Mueller on Vladimir Putin’s attempts to create discord in the 2016 election and eventually support Donald Trump are important both for what they say and what they don’t say. They offer huge victories for Trump — and thus more defeats for Hillary Clinton — but they don’t close the books on everything about 2016. The very good news for the president is that the indictments are firm in saying

An immigration overhaul amendment backed by the administration received fewer votes Thursday than three other Senate proposals that also failed to pass the Senate. But the White House emerged from that chamber’s underwhelming and unproductive floor debate in strong shape for future fights on the issue. At first glance, the vote results suggest the White House was the big loser Thursday. After all, a Senate immigration measure it endorsed got the fewest ‘aye’ votes — 39 — with

5 Terrible Things the Media Communicates
to Every Potential School Shooter

In the coming days, we will hear a familiar profile about the Broward County school shooter. (No, I will not name him, for the reason below.) He was mentally deficient. He was a loner. He expressed violent tendencies. And likely, if the pattern holds, he was prescribed some kind of drugs to control his behavior. But there is also a media behavioral profile for these situations, and it is perfectly matched to the desires of a deranged person who would like to go out in a blaze of glory. Here is what the media coverage conveys to every potential shooter out there: 1.

A federal court has unsealed a filing against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort in which prosecutors with the special counsel’s office accuse Manafort of conducting “a series of bank frauds,” new, uncharged allegations that come on top of the conspiracy and money laundering charges he already faces. The filing says the government has opposed a more lenient bail package for Manafort “in light of additional criminal conduct that we have learned since the Court’s initial bail determination,” and adds that the conduct in question “includes a series of bank frauds and bank fraud conspiracies.” Manafort already faces a raft of charges

Around two dozen Carnival Cruise Line passengers were removed from the Carnival Legend on Friday following a violent brawl that one onlooker described as a “bloodbath.” The Carnival Legend was scheduled to dock in Melbourne on Saturday following a 10-day trip through the South Pacific, but was forced to make an unscheduled stop in Eden, New South Wales, where police unloaded the unruly passengers, 9 News Australia is reporting.

Revelations that the FBI had been warned about Florida high school shooter Nikolaus Cruz fit an all-too-familiar pattern, in which apparent law enforcement errors have preceded mass murders. The FBI was warned about Cruz after he posted on YouTube saying he was going to become a “professional school shooter.” The agency said they couldn’t identify the user who made the threat, despite Cruz posting under his own name. Five months later, Cruz pulled the fire alarm at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School and began shooting his former classmates with his AR-15. Other mass shooters and terrorists were similarly on the FBI’s radar

The pols and pundits most insistent upon holding a gun-control “conversation” in the wake of mass shootings at schools did the most to turn them into nihilistic wastelands. From the puffed-chest phonies on CNN and MSNBC, we hear a lot about sinister “lobbies” that intimidate passive, cowardly pols. The insufferable Chris Cuomo, whose partisan arrogance is impossible to overstate, rips into this or that Republican for not “standing up” to the NRA. When has Cuomo ever stood up to the morally bankrupt teachers’ unions that turned America’s public schools into assembly lines of pathology? Cuomo, full of cheap outrage, seized upon

A filibuster-proof majority is a precious thing. Republicans have never had one, ever, but Democrats enjoyed one less than a decade ago. It bears remembering that, as the horror in Parkland yesterday has made this a week in which not one but two Democratic legislative priorities are on the table in which liberal self-righteousness is conspicuous, even by their usual obnoxious standards. Issue one: Immigration. They want a mass amnesty of DREAMers and they’re not willing to give up much to get it because, they reason, they shouldn’t need to. Amnesty is a virtue in itself! We shouldn’t need to

WASHINGTON -- For years, I have been saying that the Clintons lie when they do not have to, and that they tell a gigantic whopper when a little white lie would be perfectly adequate. This time-honored observation explains many of their past run-ins with the law. Now, in the lurid aftermath of Hillary Clinton´s surprising defeat by Donald Trump, we see a variation of my observation playing itself out. Eventually, it will probably land some of Clinton´s associates in jail; it will possibly snag even her. In 2016, despite being well ahead in the polls, the Clintons committed various misdemeanors when

Israeli police recommended Tuesday that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu be indicted on charges of bribery, fraud, and breach of trust. The announcement signals the culmination of a year-long investigation into the longtime Israeli leader and sparks questions about his ability to remain in power. Netanyahu is insisting he will remain in office. “Over these years, there have been no less than 15 investigations against me with the goal of bringing me down,” he said in televised remarks. “They all began with explosive headlines, live broadcasts from the studios, and some of them even with noisy police recommendations [to indict], just like

It took 20 years, but the Democrats have finally caught up with the rest of us. They now see what´s been right in front of their noses all along: Bill Clinton is a disgusting parasite who should be kept as far away as possible from the levers of power.

In June, 2006, Donald Trump taped an episode of his reality-television show, “The Apprentice,” at the Playboy Mansion, in Los Angeles. Hugh Hefner, Playboy’s publisher, threw a pool party for the show’s contestants with dozens of current and former Playmates, including Karen McDougal, a slim brunette who had been named Playmate of the Year, eight years earlier. In 2001, the magazine’s readers voted her runner-up for “Playmate of the ’90s,” behind Pamela Anderson.

But we are not powerless. Caring for our kids is our first job.
