My son pointed out something I hadn't considered. If you were an owner and needed a measure of the marketing damage being done by the kneeling stupidity, that was it. The fans are screaming at the NFL, but the league, the players and the owners now have the progressive religion and can't hear anything. Thus, we get the following picture of a suicide cult in action.

If you don’t stand for the National Anthem, what DO you stand for? And I mean that in every sense of the word — because my immediate reaction is: you don’t stand for (anything)....(T)oday, after wearing it proudly for thirty years, I will be throwing my Dallas Cowboys coat in the trash because that’s where it belongs.I've been a crazy N'awlins Saints since Mike Ditka led them to three straight 3-13 seasons way back when. I've listened to their games when they were horrible and when they won the Super Bowl, it was a religious experience. My closet and dresser is full of Saints gear. I love wearing it. No more. Until this passes away decisively, I'm putting it all away.
One more thing. The morons in the NFL think they're sending a message to Trump. Well, maybe they are, but they're sending a much, much bigger message to their fans. They're saying they want to go to war with the President and if we happen to get hurt badly in the cross fire, well, it sucks to be us.
No, boys. It's going to suck to be you. We can live just fine without you, but you're going to have a hard time living without us.
Update: I didn't watch the game, so I didn't realize that the Cowgirls knelt before the anthem and then all stood when it was played. That's a little better, but not good enough. Why are we bringing politics into the NFL at all? Why are they kneeling in the first place when fans are going to see that and assume the wrong thing? They're still idiots and it's still a suicide cult.
