    The “last one” didn’t “bash police.” He bashed “bad policing”, which is something that should be bashed loudly and frequently. He did not make police targets. The long list of unarmed black men killed by bad policing did that.
    Do you remember Obama's famous "Acting stupidly" comment.. in reference to the Cambridge Police Department? Reseach the Henry Louis Gates incident. Obama jumped the gun on that one..and admitted as much.

    Maybe someone should remind Kerr that the NBA has a written rule "that requires all coaches, players and trainers on the court to stand in the line in a respectful and dignified manner during the National Anthem"

    All these guys are hypocrites

    I am very familiar with the Henry Louis Gates incident. It really doesn’t do anything to contradict what I said. It also doesn’t do anything to show that whatever he said made police into targets.

    His apology was for giving “an impression that [he] was maligning the Cambridge Police Department or Sergeant Crowley specifically...”

    Which, he was not...
    Actually, my post was NOT about you...but, if the shoe fits, feel free to lace that &!+€# up and wear it.

    He made a comment before having the facts... and yes, race was an issue (black professor/white cops). He blew it...very badly.

    The NFL is a business and their players are the employees and we the fans are the customers and if I remember correctly the customer is always right.

    Well, the NBA rule has been in place for years now...it was a well thought out, proactive rule written and instituted with the support of the players.

    This crapfest the NFL wrote is the complete opposite: poorly thought out, reactive, and written and instituted without the support or even consultation of the players.

    If you say so. I think arresting a guy for having to break into his own home after providing proof of such is pretty stupid, no matter how you present it.

    But, that’s just me...

    Why? I never understand these “please move” requests.

    It’s a very current and controversial NFL topic that affects the Steelers. It’s easy to not read if you’re not interested. I see no harm in leaving it where it is.

    Artie's mad at the NFL, feels like they'll be "bullying" players who decide to stay in the locker room, because, he says, they'll "single us out in front of everyone."

    So players weren't singling themselves out in front of everyone when they were kneeling?

    Sorry, Artie, I can't follow your logic there.
