    I think the odds are about 50/50 it is true. When looking at something like this, one has to consider the likelihood of the story when trying to decide whether or not to believe it. If a source said they were going to fine anyone who knelt for the anthem, I'd have to call BS. This story seems more likely, tho, so I give it 50/50 odds.

    So, you won't take the bet then.

    Not surprising.

    Because CNN is a bastion of truth... *snort*

    I am willing to put up RIGHT NOW. I see you are not.

    Not surprising in the least.

    It will never end until the stands are empty...That is how you change this...cancel your pay-per-view, cancel the extra Direct TV sports pkg...no more jerseys etc....only the $ can make them change

    If America, the good old USA is such a GD racist Country, then why in the hell do all the immigrants and everyone else want to come come here ????????? The USA has more freedoms, liberties and more opportunities to live a fantastic life than any other Country on the face of the earth. That is undebatable. I wonder why about everyone wants to come and live here. I wonder why you hardly see anyone that wants to leave our Country if it is so racist ??? You can either love this Country or you can get the hell out of this Country and go somewhere else that you like more. Good F-ing luck with that, because that Country **does not** exist.
    ***All*** this **** going on today in this Country, is just about $$$$$$$$$$$, absolutely nothing else. Don’t be deceived by our Country’s two greatest enemies ** by far**, the fake news media, and the extreme Democrat socialist communist Party.

    MAGA, Vote Trump and Republican in November to stop the insanity!!!!

    I don't think they'll change. They'll ride the social justice train right off a cliff. The only hope you have if you're a normal, apolitical sports fan who wants to be able to watch a game without being preached to is to bankrupt the systems that we have now and wait for new organizations to replace the old. It's a multi- year project to kill the old and then build up something new.

    I am not hopeful that enough people will agree to go cold turkey on professional sports to make it happen if sports are available. The only way I see that it might work is if this year's seasons get completely cancelled by Covid, which will force everyone to go cold turkey and learn that there's other better things they can do with their time besides watch football all weekend. When they try to come back in 2021, hopefully enough people will have been through sportsball detox that they don't come back anyway. That's when your weaker franchises start to go bankrupt, which drags down the next weakest franchises, etc.

    You're not yet seeing the humor in your going to the mat for ESPN (ABC)?

    No national anthem should be played at sporting events in my opinion. I think doing so cheapens it. Half don't pay attention in the stands and the players scratch their balls, spit and kick around in the dirt during the playing of it. Enough of the fake salutes to the military that the Dept. of Defense spends big bucks for the teams to stage. It's all fake.

    Move those goalposts, man. I won't bother responding to you anymore, it's useless. You are not interested in having a conversation. That's apparent.

    Man, this "Black" stuff is getting tiresome. If you want to be treated like everyone else, act like everyone else. If you act different, you're going to be treated different. People are accentuating differences and using it to divide us.

    Give me a fxxxing break already. I'm tired of this sxxt.

    BTW, another good reason to boycott the NFL.

    The NFL is so 2008. There's gotta be another thing to bet on. Maybe not, there's so many bets you can place on a game.

    I quit watching football 3 years ago. Didn’t skip a beat with things to do or watch otherwise.

    They are already equal and receive preferential treatment in hiring and other practices. BUT they want to be superior and send us whiteys to the cotton fields.
    Piss on the National Felon League, Sports and all those who support and pander them.

    I flushed the NFL when the kneeling started a few years ago. They continue to outdo themselves with compounding bad decisions.

    They are not alone. Seems almost every enterprise in this country has lost its spine, either to the Chinese (NBA) or to BLM (NASCAR) and now the NFL.

    After all the income and Anti-Trust protections granted to professional sports by America, this is the payback? -Groups that actively seek to be part of the problem while being blinded to the solutions.

    The NFL, like so many on government, blow like the wind without a compass.
