So there's a bunch of Seahawks talking about protesting along with Numbnuts in San Fran

I can handle a few knuckleheads on my team, but if there's a mass showing of disrespect from the Seahawks, I will burn my Seahawks gear, video it, put it on YouTube and offer it up to Seattle's front office along with my extended middle finger.

I've been a Seahawks fan for over three decades.  But I won't root for a team that shits on my country.

There's supposed to be something special planned for the game this weekend, and it's supposed to be positive, there aren't a lot of details right now.

Dave, it looks like my previous statement could be wrong, the links contradict themselves, but if the players do protest, I'll buy a jersey and burn it.

Well, I'll wait to see what it is before I flip my lid. But I'm getting really, really tired of multi-millionaires throwing temper tantrums about how "oppressive" this country is.

Agreed, you and I and tens of thousands of people have been tired of that for well over several years now, and as much as I don't want the economic crunch to happen, and the ruckus that will follow it, I sometimes find myself glad that this is going to happen.

The problem with these people is that they can't get thrown in jail for childish behavior. And having that happen to them probably wouldn't teach them anything, anyway.

I hope this FINALLY deals the kiss of death to the NFL. I was a fan for many a decade, but about a decade ago I just couldn't take all the thugery, wife beating, child beating and such any more. Coupled with building stadiums for billionaire owners and millionaire players with tax dollars.
The same morons who claim that "The Rich" aren't paying their "fair share" will petition their government to take hard earned tax dollars and build these fancy playgrounds.
Meh.

Well, so they stood arm in arm, don't know what they're supporting, or not, but at least they stood.
