    that is the point, you aren't comparing apples to apples

    you are just making shit up and throwing it at the wall,

    there is no law that states a company cannot make their employees stand for the pledge every day. It could be a condition of employment.

    that is why I said not material and not deserving a comment, as you are making a non-sensical argument and trying to input it as the same when clearly it is not

    and before you start barking more bullshit, there are a lot of companies who do have pledges and make their slaves state it daily if not weekly

    only difference is, they are pledging to their god master, the company

    there is a full industry of camps, advisers, and counselors all devoted to this tripe

    been around these corporate slaves and wannabes enough to have seen it real time

    To each their own, but I've never understood the obsession about calls by the refs. Play better and there won't be an issue. As the legendary Jimmy Johnson said in 1988 before Miami went into South Bend - - if you go to Notre Dame you can't leave it in the official's hands."

    I did happen to see a few pieces of a few games today at the thanksgiving thing and did notice that they avoided showing the stands/crowd completely. Like they didn't want anyone to notice how empty the stands were.

    Nascar and Indycar have been losing fans now for years. Daytona removed half of their permanent stands a couple of years ago, Indycar has been using CGI fans to cover the bare spots.



    Brickyard 400 this past season was the worst I had ever seen. Maybe 20K in attendance. The place looked like a ghost town

    NFL HELL: Empty Seats Trend Moves into Week 12 in Stadiums Across Country as Anthem Protests Continue (PHOTOS)
    November 26, 2017 by Joshua Caplan 413 Comments

    Attendance issues continue to plague the NFL as the kneeling backlash rolls into week 12.

    The Cleveland Browns are facing off against the Cincinnati Bengals at Paul Brown Stadium.

    [​IMG]Empty Seats Galore



    As The Gateway Pundit reported, not only is the NFL experienced a decline in game attendance, but its ratings have taken a hit.

    The NFL’s ratings are a train wreck — and there’s no end in sight.

    Breitbart News reports:

    Ratings for the National Football League have gotten worse as Week 11 passes in the rear-view, with the league losing one million viewers over the numbers from 2016 as protests during the national anthem continue. […]

    With a loss of 6.3 percent compared to last week’s loss of 5.7 percent the loss of viewers deepened, the New York Post reported.

    The 6.3 percent dip reflects a viewership of 14.9 million viewers, which is down a million from the 15.9 earned in Week 11 last year. […]

    With TV ratings off nearly 20 percent for the season over all, the networks have reportedly lost up to $500 million in ad revenue. The ratings slide is reflected in the sparse attendance at the stadiums, too, with Week 11 photos showing that there are still empty seats galore.

    To be fair, I'd rather watch a high school football game than pay money to watch these two pathetic Negro Felon League teams play a game. I'm sure the Patriots had every seat still filled today against Miami. The Patriots just keep chugging along. Belichick doesn't care what color his player's skin is. He hires players based on their intelligence as well as their physical abilities. That team has a ton of white players and a ton of black players and all they do is win in a league where consistent winning isn't that easy!

    I just saw on the news feed on this site that there was a fight during one of the games today. Could it be staged? Trying to boost ratings maybe?

    Eh, Hernandez didn't have sticker on the back of his head saying 'I'm a murderer.. Hernandez gets all the credit for what he did off the field, not Belichick!

    Former Patriots adviser admits team knew Aaron Hernandez had issues

    https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cb...its-team-knew-aaron-hernandez-had-issues/amp/

    Floyd Reese worked as a senior football adviser for the Patriots from 2009-2012. Before that, he was the longtime general manager and executive vice president of the Titans (and Oilers, before them). Now retired from the NFL, Reese hosts the Sports Night radio show on Nashville's 102.5 FM. On Wednesday, he said that the Patriots knew before they drafted Aaron Hernandez in 2010 that the tight end had off-field problems.

    "We knew he had some issues prior," Reese told TheMMQB.com's Greg Bedard.

    Just about every team in the Negro Felon League has more than a few of their 'players' who's reputation proceeded them. Hernandez just kicked his up a notch higher than most!

    MURDER is the ultimate "Notch" at least in my book. Perhaps you have another opinion.
    Murder has to be the ultimate.
    Beating girlfriends /wives may be a far off for second place.

    Then on the opposite side we have Zeke Elliot action where POLICE find NO Criminal Action but the "Commissioner" takes the side of the female ( probably looking for a paycheck) and intends to extract a pound of flesh over a" she said, he said" incident.
    Yet the "Commissioner" lets the false narrative of a overrated FOURTH String QB who had ONE moment of brilliance stir up stupid sh!t over LEOs with zero repercussions from his "Office", when each race kills far more of their own, not even including abortion, than opposing races.

    The fan fights usually devolve into either a riot or stampede, the players fights resemble effeminate absurdity.

    Sources: NFL agrees to commit nearly $100M over seven years to social justice causes



    The NFL and a group of players reached an agreement in principle late Wednesday night to partner on a plan to address social justice issues considered important to African-American communities, ESPN has learned.

    The unprecedented agreement calls for the league to contribute nearly $100 million over seven years to projects dealing with criminal justice reform, law enforcement/community relations and education.

    During a conference call Wednesday night, Malcolm Jenkins and Anquan Boldin, who lead roughly 40 players who have negotiated with the league office about demonstrations during the national anthem, guided the group through the highlights of the package, which represents the NFL's largest contribution to a social issue, surpassing that of Salute to Service or Breast Cancer Awareness/Crucial Catch.

    The partnership came a day after some players broke away from the Players Coalition because of their dissatisfaction with how Jenkins and Boldin have handled negotiations. Commissioner Roger Goodell, believing that an agreement was at hand, was furious when ESPN reported that players were breaking off, according to one source. But during an afternoon call, Jenkins asked that the commissioner and the owners continue to stand with the players and allow them to do important work in the community.

    The agreement does not include language calling for players to end protests during the national anthem in exchange for funds; there's no implicit quid pro quo. But the NFL hopes this effort will effectively end the peaceful yet controversial movement that former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick started in 2016, when he refused to stand for the anthem.

    NFL = SUCKERS !!

    All this is is a redux of Jesse Jackson's Rainbow Coalition schemes. Jesse screamed at big businesses as being prejudice. He held out for positions on corporate boards and executive jobs for his hand picked (family) experts, and ransom money to call off his "useful idiots" and finance other Rainbow Coalition Schemes against other businesses.


    You will see the NFL kowtow to these PROG Driven False Narratives ( Tell a lie long enough people start believing it is true)

    Hilarious the stupidity in that community. Considering that this donation money will just come from the owners which will decrease their profits, thereby decreasing the total revenue available to player salaries via the collective bargaining agreement. Since 90% of the NFL players are black, it's basically just forcing the other 10% to come along for the ride as they all are just taking money from their own salaries to pay for this crap.

    However, considering their shoving this down the throat of the fans, and thereby alienating those fans who in turn spend less money, the actual league revenue pie is significantly smaller than it would have been had the players never protested and just individually voluntarily donated their own money in a proportion to the amount they settled on paying through the league office.

    Summary: In typical democrat fashion, everyone is worse off in the end (including the players).

    They think that everybody will just forgive and forget. Sure, the strikes were eventually settled and normality was saved.......however this is different entirely. There aren't as many hardcore sheeple as there used to be.

    I don't care if I ever see another NFL game.

    Can't imagine paying for an NFL game these days. I went a couple over the years. But that was when the prices were somewhat reasonable and the players were patriotic, not traitorous. I'll watch a few games nowadays but I won't spend a penny. To me it's like watching a street fight for free vs paying per view for a boxing match.

    haven't watched a game all year,

    Friday, had to make a run to town. On a busy corner, some guy with a protest placard, hand written. Very bad handwriting I might add, but scrawled very large.

    The poster stated:

    NFL GO TO HELL

    That is all it said.

    I see. So instead of a win-win, which players are supposed to be striving for because they are the cream of the crop...the mythical Athlete Heroes... they are now fully engaged in pursuing the new paradigm of lose -lose for the team, the NFL franchise AND the fans. I'm sure the radical feminists, LGBTQ gang, Antifarts, and all the rest of the factions of the progressive left liberal fantasists are wet, erect and otherwise excited and building bombs for joy as they continue their winning streak in conning people into destroying America from within. I really am looking forward to it all collapsing down on their pointed little heads. Phuktards.
