    That isn't going to cut it. The NFL depends on tv money; tv depends on ratings; as long as this issue lasts they will all lose on it. It's too late to ignore it.
    Liberals are a clear and present danger to our freedom and our society and our morals.

    If the networks stop showing the kneeling players, they will not be getting the attention they've been seeking. This might force the protesting players into promoting their cause in the appropriate forum.

    Let's unite, and stop supporting the NFL, and buying any NFL products.

    No player kneeled at the Seattle Seahawks game tonight.

    It"s incredible to watch this Griifin kid play linebacker with only one hand. I've never seen anything like that before.
