Oh No Another reason that I'm boycotting football!...

Not only my city has The Cleveland Clowns who aren't even close to a team, but look at this ****!...

NFL is winning in fight against President Trump
Christine Brennan, USA TODAY Sports Published 1:32 p.m. ET Sept. 26, 2017

When Donald Trump veered off on one of his venomous tangents in a speech in Alabama Friday night, calling an African American athlete exercising his First Amendment rights a “son of a bitch,” he almost certainly never would have envisioned the picture that would lead the national news 72 hours later:

Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, a staunch Trump supporter, taking a knee on the field with his players before the national anthem.

Congratulations, Mr. President. You’ve created hundreds of Colin Kaepernicks.

With your divisive rhetoric, you’ve united NFL owners and players. That has always been difficult to do on almost any subject. You made it look easy.

As they kneeled or stood and locked arms before and/or during the national anthem Sunday and Monday at games around the country and in London — or didn't appear for the anthem at all — they weren’t necessarily thinking about Kaepernick and his fight against social injustice.

They were thinking about you.

They were protesting you. They were protesting what you said and how you said it.

They were repudiating you.

Trump can spin this any which way he wants as he whiles away the hours on Twitter, but this time he has met his match. He has picked on people who have a megaphone as large as he does. He has gone after athletes with massive Twitter followings, with microphones in their faces and with devoted fans from red states as well as blue. It’s NFL players, it’s NBA players, it’s NBA coaches: talk about fire and fury. They’re letting Trump have it.

Then there are the owners. They, too, have criticized Trump. They’ve locked arms with their players and Jones, of course, took a knee.

These are Trump’s people. Quite a few voted for him and donated to his campaign and inaugural committee. Not long ago, he desperately wanted to be one of them, to own an NFL team. Now, even they are against him.

He's not taking this well. If we've learned anything about his Twitter habits, it's that he never knows when to stop. Half of his eight tweets before noon Tuesday were about the NFL.

He kicked things off with this:

“Ratings for NFL football are way down except before the game starts, when people tune in to see whether or not our country will be disrespected!”

Turns out, NFL ratings were up for the weekend and way up for Monday Night Football.

Next: “The booing at the NFL football game last night, when the entire Dallas team dropped to its knees, was loudest I have ever heard. Great anger.”

Arizona fans booing the Dallas Cowboys? Who knew?

“But while Dallas dropped to its knees as a team, they all stood up for our National Anthem. Big progress being made-we all love our country!”

Sounds like our man is moving the goal posts now, trying to do anything to declare victory after a lost weekend.

And, finally: “The NFL has all sorts of rules and regulations. The only way out for them is to set a rule that you can’t kneel during our National Anthem!”

Let’s all hold our breath while the NFL Competition Committee writes up that one.

Clearly, Trump is obsessed with this. The worse it goes for him, the more he probably will tweet.

Who should Trump blame for all of this? The Kaepernick story had all but burned itself out until he himself brought it back to life, deciding to declare war on American sports and ruin his weekend.

I can care less about Trump and the NFL! To me, Donald Trump is the Cleveland Clowns of Presidents!

ow do you know she's a bimbo? Or is a general attack on women? See, I'm a woman and far from a bimbo. In fact, my IQ makes me smarter than 98% of the population which includes most men. Maybe you were stating she was stupid because she is and not because she's a woman but to me when people use bimbo they mean women. Btw I Googled her and she doesn't sound like a bimbo at all.

I think the NFL, especially the Cleveland Clowns act like blondes! It's bad enough that my city has an excuse for a team, but with it being political...I'd take a knee for better entertainment than the Notrious Flopped Losers!...And I don't even mean the Cleveland Clowns either!...

PS-I have nothing against blondes, there's many who are geniuses...the NFL on the other hand...is nothing more than a fake concept... even the WWE is getting more real!

Well does anyone expect sports stars to be geniuses? Some are but depending on the sport, not important. When I was in high school the "lesser" sports were expected to get good grades, etc but certain sports were exempt. For example in the fall I was in varsity cross country and every week I had to go around to all my teachers to make sure I had a 3.0. Football players didn't, and in fact teachers gave them leeway. We also had to pay for our banquet, they didn't.

When I went to grade school, the students needed good grades to play sports.

Who cares? I watch football for football. That's it. Why overinflate this issue anymore than it has to be.

That's why everyone is so upset. People want to just watch football and have fun. Bringing politics into the situation makes it stressful and tense.
