    Fuck. Now I want to become a billionaire just to buy an NFL team. Play Deutschland, Deutschland über alles before every game and force those fucks to stand to it.

    I totally understand unabashed greed and the need to hoard as much money as possible now. Billions beyond what I need to comfortably survive. The amount of trolling I could do in this world with that kind of cash...

    It will end badly for you (probably lose your job), and rightfully so. But I won't attack your right to say stupid things. Knock yourself out.

    What the players are doing (peaceful protest) is not even remotely comparable.
    Jesus Christ.

    I support their ability to carry out this protest. Not once have I ever said that they should not be allowed to carry out this protest. I think they are stupid as fuck for doing it.

    How do you not understand the difference?

    Let me out next morning no charges. Bruises the size of grapefruits in the back of the legs.

    Bullshit.
    I agree. Thanks for letting us know so we didn't have to call it for ourselves.

    Please God make this a TV event:

    Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump, scorned by reports that Rex Tillerson called him a "fucking moron" earlier this year, told Forbes in an interview released Tuesday that he has a higher IQ than his secretary of state.

    The comment underscores the volatility between the two men after multiple reports that their relationship has frayed over the secretary of state's comment. Trump and Tillerson, along with Secretary of Defense James Mattis, will have lunch together at the White House on Tuesday afternoon.
    "I think it's fake news, but if he did that, I guess we'll have to compare IQ tests," Trump said. "And I can tell you who is going to win."

    You'd think the guy would've grown a thicker skin but I guess he's always been surrounded by yes men.

    Btw, thx for accusing me of being a racist without following up. Really charitable of you.

    I think you guys are misunderstanding first amendment rights.
    Of course these players have a right to kneel and express themselves - on their own time.

    They're getting paid a shit load of money, and while they're on the job, they do what the owner tells them to do.
    Of course, it's their right not to, just as it's the owner's right to fire/fine/bench them if they don't do as they are told.

    I don't like people eating pork, but when I am at work, I don't make a big show of it, and criticize clients who eat pork during lunch n' learns.
    When we are at work, we need to reign in some of our opinions. If we don't like that, we can find a new job.

    Is this just a weird analogy or actually something you're averse to? If it's the latter, I want a detailed explanation.

    Mostly just a weird analogy.
    But, not totally.

    Not that simple in a unionized environment. If the contract covered this type of behaviour, then the Owners can take action without liability concern. Any owner that tries to take action outside of what the contract covers is risking litigation.

    I am sure there have been emails flying back and forth between NFL and player's association brass for the past several weeks.
