    It is too early to be optimistic?

    They’re so cute, it’s like they think they can’t or won’t be replaced! I’ll bet there’s a line of people who have at least some level of talent who would line up to take their place and will proudly stand tall every time the Star Spangled Banner strikes up.

    If he has no appreciation and respect for our great country, military, Constitution, opportunity, freedom, wealth and so on, let him quit.

    Too good to be true?
    Are these guys attention whores? Just like the celebrities that said they would move out of the country when/if Trump won the election.

    Keep in mind... It's a GAME....

    They are NOT developing the cure for Cancer.

    I say, can the Prima Donna's and hire up military vets.

    The game may not be as polished.

    But, it will be just as entertaining.

    The titles of the thread and the report are misleading. The story is about one player (not plural) claiming that he will quit. They are all paid quite generously, and it is doubtful that any of them will quit. I hope they do so the NFL just goes away.

    Well, I already had no respect for these punks that want to kneel during the anthem. Now if they don't actually quit I will have less than no respect for them.
