No, because, similar to a celebrity hair-pulling contest, it's very entertaining.

I've read so much about the bad effects of drinking, smoking, over-eating and sex that I've decided to give up reading

Others are offended by the NFL for not enforcing their own code of conduct.

And others are offended because the NFL has aloud the games to be politicized and feel demonstrations should be outside of the stadium... not part of game.

Well, the NFL as a whole has had it share of issues, both past and present. IMNSHO if something offends you, don't watch, but don't expect others to follow your lead. I enjoy sports, especially football (or as John Cleese called it, handball) and have no intentions on giving it up. That is my polite response

I really ought to act more like a woman of my advancing years, but I’m growing old disgracefully.

I don't know. But Criqui is quite the character I've read about, and Trumpy I'm sure has lots of aches and pains from a football carrer.

Time to be prepared. 100% percent or bust.

John McCain, Veteran and POW, Defends Right to Kneel for NFL Players

snip...

"That’s their right to do what they want as citizens,” McCain told TMZ Sports when asked about the Dallas Cowboy players who took a knee then locked arms in solidarity before playing the Arizona Cardinals on Monday.

McCain joins a chorus of military veterans who are defending players' right to peacefully protest, including a 97-year-old World War II vet who even took a knee himself to argue that his service in defeating fascism is redeemed by the players' peaceful protests.

Meanwhile, another top Republican, House Speaker Paul Ryan, said he disagrees with the protests, but acknowledges they are protected under the First Amendment, saying players are "clearly within their rights to express themselves as they see fit."

Quote:
Others are offended by the NFL for not enforcing their own code of conduct.
The NFL's rule book says nothing about player conduct during the pre-game playing of the U.S. national anthem.

The NFL rule book makes no mention of the national anthem. But the game operations manual does.

Here’s what the game operations manual says regarding the national anthem, according to an NFL spokesperson:

‘The National Anthem must be played prior to every NFL game, and all players must be on the sideline for the National Anthem.

‘During the National Anthem, players on the field and bench area should stand (not must stand or required to stand) at attention, face the flag, hold helmets in their left hand, and refrain from talking. The home team should ensure that the American flag is in good condition. It should be pointed out to players and coaches that we continue to be judged by the public in this area of respect for the flag and our country. Failure to be on the field by the start of the National Anthem may result in discipline, such as fines, suspensions, and/or the forfeiture of draft choice(s) for violations of the above, including first offenses.’

The second part in bold almost never happens.

What isn't politicized in today's world? It has been mentioned before; the military presence at games automatically politicizes the games. As macho and pretty as they are, what do military planes flying over games have to do with the NFL?

Good one. He was droll and always appeared in need of a few more hours of sleep. Criqui was once traded for Gowdy, go figure.

To argue about the Anthem is petty. I see much larger issues looming.

As long as very large and speedy men agree to run into each other as hard & fast as they can, I will watch. The extraneous stuff is why God gave us a fast forward button.

Pats WIN this week barely.. okay can live with that...

Jets - played the Super Bowl today, as they had to WIN to save face.... We got a WIN!

Giants - well what can we say, might be time to rethink somethings no? 0-5 and they probably played the best team to give them a win....

Anyone would have guessed the JETS this year?
