    Here is a picture of one team kneeling. There are more than three players kneeling in this picture alone. Should I get pictures of every other team that did it? Whether 3 or 1500 people kneeled last year doesnít matter to me. The only thing that matters is that many, maybe all of the players in this picture are still in the league. Goodell, and the others at the top of the NFL who allowed this, are still a part of the NFL. The fact that they stopppes doing it does not mean they saw the light and are changed people. It only means they realizes their protest was not supported by the population. Until the NFL cleans house of all the kneleers, dog fighters, murderers, wife beaters, and policy makers who wonít allow a team to honor local fallen police officers, im not tuning in to watch these people. Thatís just my opinion.

    My point was that it is not even common right now. Not even close. The image you posted happened in 2017.

    I respect your opinion, but for me, I do not care what others do. I put the people that kneel for a protest in the same category of people that hanged the US flag upside down when Obama was President as a sign of distress. Both were using a National Symbol to make a political statement.

    ETA: I very rarely get into politics on forums or FB. So I will bough out of this one

    Maybe the picture is from 2017, but itís still the same people. I donít want to watch them play, I donít want to watch kaepernick play. Ray rice punching his girlfriend isnít ok just because it didnít happen this season. Michael Vick hanging dogs isnít ok just because it wasnít this season, etc. if you want to watch the NFL then cool. You donít watch nascar because itís boring, I donít watch the NFL because I think the organization is a disgrace to our country. The great thing is we each have our own TVís and they donít have to be on the same channel.

    Dick Trickle was a pretty good driver back in the day with 70 "Elite" wins and 32 ASA wins. Sadly he took his own life in 2013.

    Didn't the NFL stop showing the playing of the Anthem on TV because it didn't have the guts to make the players stop kneeling? I'm not sure because I don't watch the NFL anymore.

    I have no idea. I never watch the National Anthem anyway so I never even really cared about to tell ya the truth. I think they do still televise it though.

    2 sports where grown men act like big babies....Baseball and Auto racing.
    I like baseball but enough is enough with all the stupid unwritten rules in baseball.
    As far as auto racing goes...The greats are gone...And the pit fights are almost as bad as the NBA fights.

    Good question. I don't know either, because I don't watch it anymore either.

    On the positive side, it freed up a lot of time I was wasting watching it.
