Finally some of the footballs honchos are beginning to make some sense and halfway support their country. Now is the time for them to put their money where their footballs are and to rewrite the rule book.
I must have written a dozen post suggesting that the Nation Anthem be played before the players went on the field so it would not give the KNEELERS a chance to show their stupidity and lack of patriotism. Finalllllly someone read my posts.
The Seattle Seahawks and Tennessee Titans opted not to take the field during the playing of the “Star Spangled Banner,” while all but one member of the Pittsburgh Steelers stayed in the locker room prior to their respective games on Sunday.
Earlier in the day during a matchup between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Baltimore Ravens in London, players kneeled during the American anthem, then stood during “God Save the Queen,” Britain’s national anthem.
Would it be with-in reason to ask the kneelers that stood for God Save the Queen to move to the UK and make it their permanent residence??
Jerry Jones Finalllly come forward and made a little sense.
“I do not think the place to express yourself in society is as we recognize the American flag,” Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones told FOX Business’ Cheryl Casone last week at a gala celebrating the 100-year anniversary of Forbes magazine. “So that’s not the place to do anything other than honor the flag and everybody that’s given up a little bit for it.”
Then we still have Arthur Blank (very appropriate last name) who is a hold out.
Atlanta Falcons owner Arthur Blank, who also co-founded Home Depot (HD), had a slightly different take, telling Casone players should still have the right to demonstrate their beliefs.
“I think we have to celebrate their right to express themselves, as every American does,” Blank told Casone at the event.
I wonder how Arty would like to see the citizens of this country boycott Home Depot as well as the Atlanta Falcons games.
Here is an FYI for all of the veterans that served their country so valiantly. Home Depot will not recognize the sacrifices that our veterans have made for the country but their competitor Lowe’s gives the veterans a 10% discount. Better merchandise well worth the trip.
I’m big ticket items the savings is substantial.
Maybe if he was forced to eat some pasta fagoli instead of filet Mignon, he would see things in a different light.
Speaking of off the wall characters who should be on his hands and knees, kissing the American Flag and the ground he is walking on is Lee-Bron. For him to have the nerve to call PDT a bum, truly demonstrates that bums character.
I have no problem what soever if someone feels it necessary to criticize PDT, I have done it many times when I felt it was necessary; but to call the President of the USA a bum, that ranks up there with one of the most ignorant/bold statements anyone can make.
Now it remains to be seen if the NFL is going to push forward and implement new policies here in the USA on a permanent level. If I had to put some $oldi on it, I would say no; only if the movement started to take a financial toll.
Folks; whether you believe it or not, this anti-kneelers movement that SUDDENLY got some attention from the big boys, didn’t get any traction or attention from the billionaires club until a possibility of their bottom line failing. It is all about the money.
This is what I said in yesterdays post:
Here is a prime example of what little regard Jerry Jones has for law and order with some of the players he hired that have crossed the line. It is all about the $oldi and winning with this guy. The Dallas Cowboys are ONLY worth a whopping 4.2 billion dollars. In what country did Jerry make his fortune, China??
This anti-American protest is certainly not limited or restricted to the NFL. It is spilling over to baseball and filtering into many different social areas that can only cause major problems for the USA.
When the citizens from any country, with the exception of the BRUTALITY BUNCH, goes against their governments, it can only lead to disaster.
Hopefully, with a man like PDT as our president who has the interest of ALL people in this country at heart, regardless of race, color or creed, he can help bring back the patriotism that has been slowly eroded by our prior leaders.
Has he made mistakes along the way?? Absolutely, he is only human. If you think the USA is in bad shape now; think of what would it would be like if the results went the other way.
Do we have problems in the USA that need immediate attention?? Absolutely. BUT, always the BIG BUT, problems are only compounded when there is dissension in the ranks. Conditions do NOT have to be as they are. All it takes is cooperation from all parties concerned, working in harmony toward one major goal; PEACE.
All the problems we see in the USA all started out like a burning candle; now because of people not behaving as they are supposed to, instigators always stirring the pot, politicians worried more about feathering their nest instead of doing what they were elected to do, anti-American groups determined to bring down the country, gang warfare and much more; that burning candle has turned into a gigantic forest fire that is burning out of control.
The way I see it; if ALL factions don’t come together and pull in the same direction, in the long run it can only mean disaster for the USA.
Time to wake up America.
This is what it should be all about!!
