Is this referring to the NFL not making players stand?

Making them stand is the wrong approach. It's about not protesting on company time and being respectful to the league and fans. To me, the only solution to all of this is no more kneeling. No raised fists. Sit in the locker room during the anthem if you don't like it. Simple as that. Another solution would be to stop the anthem altogether. In this politicized climate, that will lose more fans though.



No.. do the math.

Goodell making that statement was more about him placing the problem and its reolution on the owners shoulders than him taking it on. He works for the owners, but he's also got some political power as the Comissioner. He's no idiot.

Now the owners have to make the next move regardless of what it is.


If the players really wanted to do something revolutionary, then why not make every single interview they give be ONLY about Kaperfuck's topic... this respects the flag and makes it about what Kaperfuck said he wanted in the first place... dialogue..

If the reporters or their agencies do not report the interviews.. then the players (and everyone else) can then point to the media and put the pressure on them to do their job.

Would be much more effective than this stupid flag protest, that clearly Kaperfuck did not think through clearly.

Kaperfuck's 1st action in an effort to unite the country , was to instead divide them...


This tells me he's either an idiot, or had a different agenda in the 1st place.

It is shocking how empty many of the stadiums are today. I knew the NFL would take a hit, but I did not realize how much of a hit. Granted, I think a lot of it is the teams suck.

The NFL product just sucks and 99% of the teams outside of the Patriots, Steelers, Chiefs and uh...hmm.. Dallas? Are no good and flat out an embarrassment. It's the product more than anything when the Aaron Rodgers of the world go down. The NFL will survive politics but when it comes down to it, the product is bad overall. Rivalries are lacking and Peyton Manning isn't walking through the door anytime soon to matchup with Brady in Primetime. The NFL is now missing those storylines.

You may be doing well. But the nfl sure as hell isn't.

I don't know, I guess some people have standards. Others don't. That's OK. There is room for both in the world.

motherfucker!

I started the day in 177th place...got as low(high) as 9TH(!!!), then fell to 74th....now I'm 272nd.

Kansas City is a raging dumpster fire. The Saints are pretenders....and the Jags' coaching staff doesn't know how to fucking manage clock.

Oh, and Philly may be 10-1, but they've played NO ONE.

I agree. I'm glad you weren't referencing James' goaline incompletion, because that was NOT a catch.

Incidently, RWF...I think the fumble out of the endzone/touchback rule is egregious. But I have a solution.

If the offensive team fumbles out of the end zone they keep the ball, however...they lose the down, and they get the ball at the 20. I think that is completely fair. Someone suggested it, and Bill Barnwell wrote about it in one of his columns.

I think Carr is an idiot for stretching for the pylon. Just run out of bounds and take your 1st and goal from the 2 with 30 seconds left.

Wah.

It's just the way the division leaders and winners set things up across the league. Teams like the Vikings or Chiefs in the way they finished in their conference or division may have determined NE coming to Pittsburgh again.

Lol! Good luck with that. :lol:

As bad as the NFL ratings are down, networks would literally commit MURDER to be in their position, STILL. Even with ratings down, the NFL still brings in incredible numbers.

Out of the top 10 most watched television shows of the year, the NFL dominated 7 spots. I don't got the list in front of me but they got the top 4 or 5 spots with ease with only the Oscars and Trump's inauguration landing somewhere in between. It's just childs play.

Thursday Night Football got to go. It serves no purpose to the players whatsoever. I bet the NFL is seriously going to consider scrapping the last two preseason games and go to the 18 game format real soon. If that happens, the entire format changes but TNF is worthless and not needed. To have Sunday games, Sunday Night games, Monday Night games and Thursday Night games is just way too much. Football isn't built that way. Go back to less is more.

Agreed. Now that I am not watching football (or any sport), it really hits me how much time I was spending on it. It got ridiculous. Watching that Alabama game last night almost made me feel like an asshole for sitting there for more than an hour.

What the NFL REALLY needs to do is seed the playoffs like the NBA. There's NO WAY a 12 win team, that didn't win its division, needs to travel TO an 8 win team that won a horrific division.

Either that, or just fucking win your division. NO wild cards. Realign. and get rid of WCs.

My thought is realign into an East, and a West conference. And teams only meet during SB. It would cut down on travel. East of Kansas....East Conference...West of KS....West Conference. 16 teams, and 16 teams....there's your schedule. You play everyone in your conference once. Everyone plays everyone.

Get rid of London games, and Mexico games. Cut pre-seson to TWO games. And I'd also consider contraction, in all sports. At least by 4-6 teams.

Bro, stop being in denial and stop lieing to yourself and just watch the damn games lol. Why fight the urge.

The Alabama/Clemson game was never going to live up to the standard Georgia/Oklahoma set before it. I've never seen a more high scoring game that was filled with competitive momentum shifts in some time. If you are any sports fan, that game was appetizing on all levels and satisfied that craving. Loved it and I'm not a big college football fan.

It does need changing. An 11-5 team shouldn't have to travel to an 8-8 team. Point blank. Top 6 teams in a conference make the playoffs, regardless of division.

Nah, I disagree. The emphasis on NFL football is on the divisions. It's straight forward. Win your division or pay the price. Divisional matchups and rivalries are what fuel the league. If you change that, divisional matchups and scheduling won't mean jack.

Well...by allowing Wild Cards - you are devaluing the divisional matchups, and scheduling already. And you just said win your division or pay the price.

We can agree to disagree. One day you could have a 13-3, or 14-2 team not make the playoffs due to not winning a division, and having 2 WC teams with better records. Don't laugh...could happen. Hell, N.E. missed it in '09 going 11-5.
