    re: The St. Louis Rams’ ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot’ Protest [W:256]

    First I think that the players are misguided by adopting Brown and the hands up / don't shoot mantra but that's up to them. I personally have no problem with them praying on the field, protesting on the field.... it's up to the NFL to decide if certain actions are against NFL policy or are breeches of contract. The NFL is an employer and as such, define what is and is not acceptable behavior for their employees.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    re: The St. Louis Rams’ ‘Hands Up, Don’t Shoot’ Protest [W:256]

    i first started watching football in 1968 and loved the game, until the early 1990's

    its no wonder i came to hate football in today's sense.....with social media and politics becoming involved in it now.

    what i would not give to to see the old days of George Blanda, and Joe Kapp.

    Of course it is. It's saying "I love America." Which is a place defined by political boundaries.

    Given that Ferguson is in the United States, I would posit that the United States was the home of Michael Brown. It is also the home of rocket88, and if I'm not mistaken, the home of tres borrachos.

    The games are played in America. The teams are based in America.

    You know quite well an American flag at a football game isn't in the same hemisphere as protests but you're going to pretend you think it.

    We also don't live in the United States of Tres Borrachos, which is why nobody carries signs with my name on them at sporting events and I don't recall anyone saluting my image either.

    It's not the same kind of statement, but it is a political statement.
