America is not all peaches and cream for everyone, their are difficult conversations that have to be had and these protests as well as others are forcing people to have the conversation. It seems people are more concerned with the worship of a piece of cloth than they are with ideals that the piece of cloth stands for.
    i havent heard of any players going into communities telling people how they should act when interacting with police. i dont hear of any donating money to police agencies so they can hire quality individuals or pay for better officer training. if police 'injustice' is the problem, work to address that. calling them pigs and promoting hate and disrespect towards police isnt helping the situation.

    Because clearly that was the message during the protests, all the players hating and disrespecting police.

    people will be all over the place on this subject but what exactly is being accomplished positively by doing this?
    Today kind of feels like the unofficial “jump the shark” moment for the NFL which isn’t necessarily a bad thing at this point. It’s been a good run.

    I know there are many that support the protests. Of course we all support the right to protest. But when you ask yourself what is the goal and are the accomplishing that goal? I have my doubts. Have there been abuses from police? you bet. Is law enforcement systemic in it's abuse? I don't think so. But I'm sure taking a knee before a game is not going to sway the extremely small amount of law enforcement that are abusers. The problem with dbags like that is they don't care what others think. So are these protests effective? I don't think so.

    But I will say this. One of the reasons I think these protests are ineffective is the bubble these players live in and how disconnected they are from the real world.

    In other words, how many of us could show up to our place of employment - stage a protest and keep our jobs?

    If the NFL has jumped the shark, it is due to the CTE stuff. Not because some orange President called the players sons of bitches, and they responded to it in this way.

    It is just so amazing (i.e. sad) to me, that so many seemingly agree with his sentiment.
    I wasn't hired for my disposition.

    actually, the so called "Protesting" started long before anything the President may have said to spark today's events.

    The NFL jumped the shark due to putting out a really bad product. The Thursday games are usually always awful. There's way too many injuries. After 100 years, nobody knows for sure what a catch is. There's a flag on every play. A commercial every 2 minutes. Players are way more interested in their stats, their celebrations, and now their political agendas than just winning a game.
