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.

Economists attempting to understand the relationship between new technology and productivity growth could do worse than looking to the early days of the humble public clock, as Lars Boerner, from the London School of Economics, and Battista Severgnini, from the Copenhagen Business School, have done in a paper for LSE’s Economic History Working Papers series. It might seem obvious that new high-tech inventions can be an economic boon — and in this case, the authors do find that early adopters of the clock saw high population growth, a proxy for premodern economic growth, of about 30 percentage points between

WASHINGTON - Congress on Tuesday rolled back some of the restraints imposed on banks after the 2007-2009 global financial crisis, but big players like Goldman Sachs Group Inc (GS.N), Morgan Stanley (MS.N) and JPMorgan Chase & Co (JPM.N), will not be breaking out the champagne. While Wall Street banks lobbied hard for a range of provisions that would have weakened the 2010 Dodd-Frank reform law and boosted their profits, they got trumped by their smaller rivals, according to lobbyists, Congressional staff, bankers and disclosure records. For example, the bill reduces federal oversight of banks between

With the 2018 midterms months away and the 2020 presidential election cycle approaching rapidly, Democrats are considering how to improve their poor showings in 2014 and 2016. The party has been debating — sometimes heatedly — how to do this. Which voters should they target? How should Democrats target them? But here’s what’s clear: White voters have been fleeing the Democratic Party, and that’s a big reason Democrats are looking to rebound from back-to-back losses. Whites have slowly but consistently moved away from the Democratic Party. These recent losses are on top of Democrats’ losses among Southern

The Obamas’ Netflix deal proves it’s

Conservatives aren’t the only ones with reasonable gripes about the news that Barack and Michelle Obama have signed a multiyear production deal with Netflix. Forget the increasing politicization of entertainment for a moment. Why are the taxpayers still laying out vast sums every year for pensions, health insurance, staff and office expenses for ex-presidents? The Former Presidents Act was passed in 1958 in response to the plight of Harry Truman. A man of modest means with no savings, the 33rd president thought putting himself on a corporate payroll, endorsing products or otherwise profiting from his time in the White House would

Philip Roth, the prolific, protean, and often blackly comic novelist who was a pre-eminent figure in 20th century literature, died on Tuesday night at a hospital in Manhattan. He was 85. The cause was congestive heart failure, said the writer Judith Thurman, a close friend. Mr. Roth had homes in Manhattan and Connecticut. In the course of a very long career, Mr. Roth took on many guises — mainly versions of himself — in the exploration of what it means to be an American, a Jew, a writer, a man. He was a champion of Eastern European novelists like Ivan

As the Democratic Party struggles to find its identity this primary season, it’s clear that Tuesday’s contests continued to show the internal struggle for the party’s future direction. The results speak volumes: progressives are overwhelmingly beating their more moderate primary opponents and uncertainty remains around the Democratic Party’s ability to retake the House in November The growing progressive insurgency presents serious questions for the Democratic Party as it continues its leftward movement. In particular, two gubernatorial primaries demonstrated the tension between progressives and moderate candidates who are

Ever since she lost the 2016 election, Hillary Clinton has repeatedly blamed her defeat on the FBI’s decision to reopen the probe into her email use after messages were found on the laptop of confidante Huma Abedin’s estranged husband. But now that laptop and those emails are back in the spotlight, this time causing problems for FBI leaders as part of a forthcoming inspector general report. The probe is expected to fault bureau officials for sitting on those emails in the first place. The finding underscores how the laptop continues to play a recurring part in the Clinton case saga, haunting everyone

Newly revealed e-mails show that former Federal Bureau Investigation (FBI) deputy director Andrew McCabe was keenly aware of CNN’s internal understanding of a secret briefing about the infamous Steele dossier, days before CNN published any stories on the matter. The e-mails, which were obtained by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wisc.), also reveal that top officials used coded language to refer to the salacious and unverified allegations made by Steele. Former FBI director James Comey briefed then-President-Elect Donald Trump on January 6, 2017, on at least one unproven allegation contained in Steele’s dossier, which was jointly funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and

Friday, President Trump held a Prison Reform Summit at the White House. The event brought together various activists and experts on the subject who were joined by Van Jones of CNN and the president’s son-in-law and adviser, Jared Kushner. Kushner and Jones are pushing legislation aimed at requiring federal prisons to take preventative measures to help inmates avoid becoming repeat offenders. The approach would include job training programs, mental health counseling and drug treatment. Let’s hope the Trump administration can push Congress to take up the challenge. In a 2014 study, the National Institute of Justice

The Washington Post reports that European leaders are vexed with President Trump. Sorely vexed. Our European partners feel that Trump “delight[s] in smashing transatlantic bonds.” The situation is so dire that, according to Josef Janning of the European Council on Foreign Relations, the post-World War ties that provided the basis for Western strength and peace for 70-plus years are probably gone forever. The end of the Trump presidency won’t restore the alliance, Europeans fear. Rather, “the blend of unilateralism, nationalism, and protectionism Trump embodies may be the new American normal.” But what actual policies and

Can special counsel Robert Mueller require President Trump to testify before a grand jury? It would be unprecedented, and his effort to do so could lead to a major constitutional confrontation. The president could, of course, resist a grand jury subpoena by asserting his right under the Fifth Amendment not to be a witness against himself. However, for political reasons, he may not wish to do that. And he may not need to. Another off-ramp for the president, which he may choose not to take, is to remove the special counsel. Mueller is an appointee of the Department of Justice, part of

After about thirteen years of being a loyal customer of Netflix, the time has come for me to say goodbye. (Snip) Given that I’m a conservative, one might be inclined to believe my choice to leave Netflix is predicated upon the company’s most recent decision to partner with Barack and Michelle Obama’s new company, called “Higher Ground Productions,” to produce loads of new content. And in a way, I guess that’s correct. But this choice by Netflix has not alone led me to this decision. Rather, this was the straw that finally broke the camel’s back -- the latest in a series of indicators that the network has become little more than a

A New Jersey high school is under fire after it released prom tickets that encouraged students to ´party like it´s 1776´. Cherry Hill High School East designed the prom tickets to commemorate that the dance was being held at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer fumed Tuesday over the Trump administration´s "outrageous" decision to exclude Democrats from an upcoming meeting in which Justice Department officials will give House Republicans documents related to the FBI´s investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia. Republican lawmakers had been demanding DOJ release the classified documents for months. “The only thing more outrageous than this meeting occurring at all is the fact that it’s now partisan,” the New York Democrat said. “It is crystal clear that Chairman Nunes’ intent is to interfere with the investigation, and Speaker Ryan is allowing it to

Former Attorney General Eric Holder on Monday urged Department of Justice (DOJ) and FBI officials to "simply say no" to President Trump´s demand for an expanded investigation into his claims of FBI wrongdoing as it relates to his campaign. "More DOJ norms being eroded. Trump-a SUBJECT of the investigation-wants access to material related to the inquiry," Holder tweeted. (Snip) His latest criticism of the president came as Trump and his allies have claimed, without evidence, that an FBI informant spied on his campaign for political purposes. On Sunday, Trump said he would demand the DOJ investigate the matter.

NFL club owners are considering potential 15-yard penalties for kneeling during the national anthem among ways of coping with a backlash over player protests, Sports Illustrated reported Tuesday. According to a story on the magazine´s website, owners set aside three hours to talk about the anthem issue, which President Donald Trump elevated into a major controversy last year. Ideas to handle players kneeling during the anthem included allowing home teams to decide if players should be out of the locker room during the pre-game playing of The Star-Spangled Banner or not.If players are on the sideline, then 15-yard

Clint Walker, the hulking star of TV’s Cheyenne who also appeared in such classic films as The Ten Commandment and The Dirty Dozen, died Monday. He was 90. Walker’s daughter Valerie told TMZ that the family believes he died from a heart problem. Walker was best known for playing Cheyenne Bodie, the strapping, brooding, mean title drifter in the 1955-63 ABC Western Cheyenne. Roaming from town to town and job to job in the post-Civil War West. The series did a slow build, breaking into the year-end Primetime Top 25 at No. 12 in its third season, where it peaked

Former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper said Tuesday that the FBI was not at any point spying on the Trump campaign. “They were not. They were spying — a term I don´t particularly like — on what the Russians were doing," Clapper said during an appearance on The View to promote his new book, “Facts and Fears: Hard Truths From A Life In Intelligence.” The FBI, Clapper said, was simply trying to answer the question, "Were the Russians infiltrating, trying to gain access, trying to gain leverage and influence?" Clapper´s comments came shortly after the Justice Department, under pressure

It happens every 405,000 years. The Earth’s orbit gradually changes shape from almost circular to slightly elliptical over a period of 202,500 years, and then starts returning to form over the next 202,500 years — like a metronome swinging side to side. Right now, we are in an almost perfectly circular orbit around the sun, and soon — within some thousands of years, that is — we will start moving toward the elliptical. This happens because of the Earth’s gravitational interactions with other planets, especially Jupiter and Venus — Jupiter because it is very large, and Venus because it is very near.

James Clapper, the former Director of National Intelligence, responded on ABC’s “The View” Tuesday to President Trump calling him a “lying machine” in a tweet last month. “What that stems from is an exchange I had with Sen.

Co-host Meghan McCain pressed Clapper on the issue, arguing that technically Clapper did tell a lie about the NSA program. "What you´re referencing though,” she said, “when you´re talking about

The Democratic Party has no leader right now. No one. Former President Barack Obama is palling around with his billionaire, island-owning buddies. Socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders is kicking back in one of his three houses (we’re guessing the big one on Lake Champlain). And the 20-some 2020 presidential wannabes are all jockeying for media attention (and cash, lots of cash). In such a void, that leaves just one person with the spotlight: the bitter, ever-angry, petty, vindictive Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton told the Democratic Women’s Leadership Forum on Friday that she would be a foundational part of the anti-Trump
