""If there's anything that is disrespectful to the flag, then we will not play," Jones said after Sunday's loss to the Green Bay Packers. "Understand? We will not ... if we are disrespecting the flag, then we will not play. Period."

 

If Prescott, Elliott & Bryant take a knee and they get told they don't play than the Cowboys are shooting themselves in the foot. It's exactly the right time for them to continue this protest.

They cannot sustain losing their 3 best players. 

 

although you are right this isnt going to happen 

none of those are taking knees

Exactly

Player power needs to be used for good here. 

 

They need to communicate and stick together.

 

Same goes for football teams. Tevez was public enemy at City till they realised they needed him playing; then all was forgotten...

 

Owners care about their profits. If the players make a "stand" here..so what if they don't get played. Fuck it. Live by your principles and enjoy your millions and respectable stance.

Although political protest should be kept away from work i doubt its a contractual requirement to stand for a national anthem. Still, i reckon the majority will buckle under the pressure and back down.

The American national anthem being played before sports was all propaganda introduced just after WWII it then stuck after the war had ended. 

Players used to be in the locker room for this part baring special occasions (9/11 & Super Bowl)

Between 2012-2015 almost €7m was paid by dept of defence for "paid patriotism" to American sports teams. 

 

I also thought they made it a staple after Pat Tillman died but can't find anything on this now.

imagine the situation theyre in.

they are literally pawns now, from every direction, and theyre owners have switched the direction theyre pulling them in now so theyre in an even tougher spot

dont envy them at all, it's gone from protesting brutality against people of colour to disrespecting the flag and soldiers who have died and the NFL have wholeheartedly switched sides, I guarantee government departments have spoken to them and told them they must stop them kneeling seeing as DoD pays for patriotism and soldier homecoming events at games.

Now it's down to these poor players to choose sides in this new version of the game that got downloaded and updated without their consent.

Your free speech rights  don't necessarily extend to your place of work tbh, nfl owners can do what they want, it's their business. Unless you're your own boss it's best to keep politics and work separately, as free speech isn't free from consquences. 

You're 100% right, which is why I also highlighted the "Brave" part.

The owners can put any sanctions they like, but since the league is 70% black, if all 70% actually knelt those sanctions would mean less than nothing.

Do you think Abramovich or the Qatar man city guys would tolerate any Spanish guys at Chelsea or city making noise on the pitch before games about the catalonia thing?

In regards to the particular subject they may take issue, but then that would reaffirm the point. I remember a few years Ibrahimovic getting fake tattoos all over his body to highlight a cause he believed in. No one had anything to say about that. This suggests that if it's a cause that they believe to be just or beneficial to them then they'll allow it without question

President Trump has condemned Iran as a fanatical regime and refused to sign off an international nuclear deal.

He said he was referring the deal to Congress and would consult allies on how to alter the deal.

He accused Iran of sponsoring terrorism and said he would deny the regime "all paths to a nuclear weapon".

International observers however say Iran has been in full compliance with the 2015 deal.

President Trump, in a personal phone call to a grieving military father, offered him $25,000 and said he would direct his staff to establish an online fundraiser for the family, but neither happened, the father said.

 

Quote

 

Donald Trump told the widow of a fallen US soldier that “he knew what he was signing up for”, it was claimed yesterday as an attempted condolence backfired spectacularly. 

The US President was said to have made the comment when calling the wife of La David Johnson, a 25-year-old killed recently in Niger, West Africa.

Two people listening into the call - including Mr Johnson’s mother - confirmed he made the remark and called it “disrespectful”.

However Mr Trump denied the claim in the strongest terms and said he had “proof” the words had not been spoken, implying a recording existed.

 

 

But man are disrespecting veterans if they don't want to stand for the anthem :lol:

All he has to do is get some people in uniform standing behind him in his next address and say he supports the military and that'll apease a load of people. 

 

 

Words and platitudes speak louder than actions now. 

 

The John McCain thing was outrageous.

I thought the whole campaign was a troll job to get the stupid hick vote and he'd behave himself once he got into office, but he's actually worse. 

Mad.

He's gotta keep those supporters.  

 

By changing his ways he'll lose the hicks and his detractors aren't likely to have a change of heart so he'd be left with nobody. 

 

Sad thing is right now I'd have money on him winning the next election too.

The amount of people killed in the manchester and london attacks is less than vegas shooting. He should be worrying about keeping americans safe from other americans.

It was one of the hardest areas hit by Hurricane Harvey, but a clause in a grant application has many asking questions in the city of d*ckinson.

In section 11 of the application, applicants must agree to not boycott Israel during the agreement.

You kno israel employ people to go on social media and fight for them in comments sections so wouldn't be surprised if people can be found out that way
