"Bills fans boo Colin Kaepernick, chant 'USA' before he kneels"

Before San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick knelt during the national anthem of Sunday's game against the Buffalo Bills, a loud chant of "USA, USA" rang out at New Era Field.

Kaepernick knelt during the anthem for the first time as a starting quarterback before a regular-season game and was again joined by safety Eric Reid and linebacker Eli Harold in protest of racial inequality and oppression in the United States.

SF 13 - Bills 24 2mins left.

A full third of the american people are estimated to be boycotting the NFL.

If this is a contest of wills, guess who's going to win?

Good to see it. If you want to rub your anti-American political opinion in the face of thousands who have come to enjoy a game and revel in American culture for a couple hours, then pay the price of your self-important indulgence.

If we are gonna throw around accusations without any proof, then this should be all over the news too.

I wonder what Immanuel Kant would have to say about this.

Like I said, players vs. patriots. Who will win? Guess who? It isn't the players.

Standing in the supermaket checkout line today, I saw a magazine cover photo of Hillary inpsecting a document and Bill, behind clasping jer shoulders, reading along with an ecstatic expression on his face.

Other than money, what's the secret to a long lasting marriage of convenience? I would buy that magazine if it attempted to find an answer to that question.

He who knelt it, felt it.

Maybe they should only target the 49ers games or are all the other NFL teams aping him?

How long before Kaepernick goes all prostrate for Allah on the field?

I met a friend of mine in the Pork Store on Saturday. He is a big Steelers fan. We used to go to every game that the Giants played the Steelers. We even drove to a game in Pittsburgh years ago when I was single.

He asked me what I thought about the season. I told him I gave up football. The guys in the store were astonished. They are all die hard Jets Fans. Georgie even made a commercial for the NFL last season. So they couldn't comprehend that I was dropping the game. Just the way the commissioner can't comprehend that there are millions of deplorables just like me who are dropping it.

They just don't get it.

Several have tried, including my beloved Iggles.

Rams, Broncos, Pats, Dolphins, Chiefs, and Seahawks all have players doing it.

Only when his girlfriend tells him no more sex.

Over it. Have been for some time now. Corporate plutocrats building stadiums with public money so the swells have a venue where they can wine and dine other fat cats and pretend to be regular guys. Also, FYI, the local
political bigs all have really good seats at the regional sports venues. So we're paying twice; once for the venue and again so the parasites can have a night out on our dime. Big scandale in Oakland recently when some dialed-in bureaucrat was caught scalping(?) her publically funded tix. Bitch. I've got good friends who aren't even that far up the public food chain but their boss (our next senator) gives them tix behind home plate at AT&T Park. This goatshit protest/promotion stunt is just the icing on the crap cake. Spent today reading a Reacher novel instead.

I saw online articles after the asshole through a TD trying to make him a hero. He had a shit game and his team got pimp slapped by a Bills team coached by a stupid, shanty, Irishman. The asshole QB is now a vegan. Perfect.

I am only over it when I don't have a bet on the game. Lost $110 on the Eagles today and won $100 on the Giants. It was worth the ten bucks -makes the game more interesting to me. Damn Giants alnost lost- Flacco took the Ravens about 60 yards in little more than a minute and threw an incomplete pass into the end zone as time ran out. That was a $200 swing for me- Instead of losing $220, I only lost $10.

If we really wanted to know if the NFL is in trouble, they should ask some bookies.

Black man making $13 million/year playing kids game protests oppression of Black Americans.

Black President of the United States agrees.

Ditto other Black millionaires.
