Sitting, kneeling or hiding out in the lockeroom during our anthemPage 26 of 45    (5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, 34, 35, 36, 37, 38, 39, 40, 41, 42, 43, 44, 45)
its true, we argue and debate. but the world decides to listen. Probably b/c of our economic and military influence. Or they just love a good soap opera. But obviously other countries carry on with their own political scandals, celebrity missteps, etc. it just doesn't get beamed over CNN around the world. that's one thing about the forums--I know there's plenty of news being debated in Australia, Scotland, and Canada due to citizens of those countries coming here and talking about it.

Hahahaha. Four college level quarterbacks picked in the first round of the NFL draft today and seasoned pro Kaperdick stays unemployed.

Refusing an 80 million dollar contract after dissing your country, yep that's right, he pissed away a guaranteed 80 mil before he left the 49ers cause he thought the masses agreed with him, was a huge miscalculation.

80
Million

I don't what's more embarrassing to the U.S.-Kaepernack being blacklisted by the NFL, Trump sticking his nose in the NFL's business and publicly going on a childish bullying tirade about it, or Pence refusing to stand when both Korean teams marched under a unified flag during the Olympics opening ceremony. Why didn't Trump throw a tantrum and go nuts on Pence about that? If a world leader in that situation was to refuse to stand for the American national anthem, you could be that Trump would've gone crazy on Twitter and call the leader every horrible name he could think of. If Obama would've acted this way during his presidency, do you think everybody would've just laughed it off and supported an angry, crazy man attitude?

Its too bad that a 5 time draft dodger made such a "to do" out of a simple and respectful gesture as taking a knee.

Who knows what will trigger a childish temper tantrum by the Toddler in Chief. This narcissistic son of b!tch needs to be removed from office. He's made your country the laughing stock of the world.

The disrespect on Pence's part was a "damned if I do/damned if I don't" decision. If he had stood, I'm sure he would have suffered the wrath of the Trumpanzee like he's done to Sessions and every other person around him. He can't even respect his own wife FFS.

For Trump and the Trumpanzees, that's a good quality to have. Look at how much respect Trump has given to his current wife and past wives. Women are just pieces of meat to Trump and his cult followers.

Trump sticking his nose in the NFL's business



Well he quite surely will be impeached for it first thing Monday morning. Haaahahahahaha.

Of course it's peachy keen when Obama sticks his nose in the Grammy Musicians business, hypocrite.

It's not an embarrassment in the least to America Kaperdick is unemployed. On the contrary is a testament to what a miscalculation he made. Refusing $80 million because he thought he was a bigshot. You do know that he wasn't even the starter for the 49er's for two years before he was offered the 80 don't you? That's how much he sucked and that was beginning four years ago when he lost his starting position, then refused 80
Million
Dollars!!!

Kaepernick blew a good job with a great coach. He would have had a good life in Seattle. The Seahawks were crazy for even entertaining hiring him, after the big distraction of Michael Bennett protesting.

I don't understand what people don't get about protesting at one's job, when it has nothing to do with your job. It's laughable. I'd like to see someone go on a job interview and tell HR, btw, I'll be protesting something while at work. You're not getting hired. He evidently doesn't know how to go on a job interview, lol.

He could have used his big salary and celebrity to get behind his causes.

He quietly and respectfully took a knee.

I don't stand for the Lord's Prayer or grace. Respectfully.

It was a nothing until the Nothing POTUS made it into something.

Respectful to wear socks with pigs on them dressed as cops during practice? He's an @hole. He's an attention whore that caused problems at his "job". Can you protest catching dolphins in tuna nets at your job? I don't think so. Who here has protested at their job about something unrelated to their job?

I'm not a black man that gets pulled over by the cops just for being black. I'm not a black man shot for holding a cell phone. I don't have any dead black friends. BLM wasn't formed because the police were picking off white grandmothers that had 4 cats.

When you see this, live this, these are your "people", you look at things a different way. It just like how I stand up for my "sisters" in the #MeToo movement. He took a knee, respectfully. Its too bad you or that big fat lying POS that cheats on his 3 wives and evaded the draft 5 times had to call them "sons of b!tches" because The Donald is the son of a b!tch that should have just STFU.

You and I have no idea - we are white women.

Seagull, I do understand the "cause"; I don't live under a rock. Same question, can you protest not job related issues at work? The issue is not what he's protesting for.

Tootie, NY article, you must have missed it, but really, you need to do your own research: https://nypost.com/2016/09/01/colin-kaepernick-wore-socks-with-pig-cops/

I know football players, basketball players, etc. get paid to play a game and they have contracts and it is a "job". But I don't think one of his job requirements is to stand for the anthem or say the Lord's Prayer or sell his soul. He took a knee. Most didn't notice for a long time. Then it caught on. And when many players, and owners, took knees in support, it was awesome. That's when he won. And we still have dead black men.

His life, his choice. Fck football and fck that POS POTUS, he is a far bigger disgrace than Kaepernick ever was. Kaepernick is a bigger man than the POTUS will ever be. IMO.

Wow, interesting that a poster would have to ask for verification to the sock issue with kaepernick. Kaep needs to go play for the cfl if they will take him or that new league coming in a couple years. Funny how some posters in here whine about a president commenting on this issue, thinking his comments are what is keeping this punk out of the nfl. Fans don't want this punk on their team. Boo-hoo, those millions and millions he rejected, what a "smart" person. Do your protesting on your own time, not on your bosses time!!

Wrong. That's when he lost. Eighty MILLION dollars.
If he wouldn't have pissed off 80 MILLION dollars away, well then he wouldn't have to frivorsely sue anyone would he?

Trump "disrespected" the actual president for almost the whole of his two terms, by lying that he "wasn't an American", and/or that he was a "Muslim".
Trump disrespects the whole justice dept, the FBI, the CIA, and all other branches of your law enforcement, because they're investigating his shady past.
Trump disrespected your military; by lying (again and again) to dodge the draft.
Trump disrespected your whole country, by publicly encouraging a hostile foreign power to "hack" the servers of an elected representative.
Trump disrespected ALL his many wives, and his marriage vows, and publicly boasted about it.

So it's particularly amusing to see his dimwitted acolytes talking about "respect".
-And as for "attention whore"
-That's the only thing he's actually "best at".
Though he clearly likes actual whores, prostitutes, and porn stars.
"Mmmmm yeah baby, get reeeeeal."

Trump can't even spell respect.
I think it's perfectly clear who the real @hole is.....
Have a pleasant weekend.

"Trump disrespected ALL his many wives, and his marriage vows, and publicly boasted about it."

Even when Trump denied having any affairs and called all of the accusers liars, he still ended up putting his foot in his mouth, when he said of one them : "“Take a look. Look at her. Look at her words. And you tell me what you think. I don’t think so"-implying she isn't attractive enough to have an affair with.

If Bill Clinton used that line-implying Lewinsky or any other accuser isn't attract enough instead to have an affair with-instead of just denying he didn't have sexual relations with any of his accusers, do you think the public would've bought that? And how ironic is it, that Trump had Bill's accusers show up at a televised debate. Too bad Hillary didn't do like wise with Trump's accusers. Trump supporters don't care if Trump has affairs and treats women like pieces of meat, but it might have rattled Trump enough to act even more crazy than he did.

Back on topic, has Trump mentioned anything about looking into the allegations of police shooting unarmed black people, and saying maybe the police should get further training to be not so trigger happy? If Trump would've mentioned anything about being concerned about the killings of unarmed people by police, then the kneel down movement wouldn't have gathered so much support. But Trump has a "I don't care" attitude about it-as long as it doesn't affect his quality of life. A president is suppose to represent all of the people-not just rich white people.

So who is really being disrespectful-especially when the VP walks out of a stadium while the national anthem is being played? Why didn't Trump give Pence sh1t for disrespecting the national anthem?

Wrong. That's when he lost. Eighty MILLION dollars.


He can sleep at night with a clear conscious and I'm sure he thinks that is far better than money. He will have a book deal, someone will do a movie about him, he will get speaking engagements and be thought of as a good man. That means more than a 80 million and selling your soul.

As for Jo Van's comments about Trump, he's bang on. If that disgraceful lying cheating POS that inhabits the WH had gone all stupid to appeal to his base of inbreds married to their cousins and shouted out "sons of b1tches", this would have stayed at not much of anything - a handful of players. So in essence, we had a ignorant POS in the WH calling out a football player with heart. We have an ignorant POS that the world laughs as and a football player where people say "he tossed away a career but he did it to take a stand for his brothers". So who is more of a man....Kaepernick. Who is the assh@le, Trump.

"why didn't Chump throw a Twitter tantrum over Pence refusal to stand?"

>>maybe Chump was too busy trying to play alpha male and wipe off an ally's jacket collar calling it dandruff, to notice. That's the level of the "Tough guy" in the bar trying to alpha male someone else. Or its just an old man feeling threatened by a young man's vitality. Isn't this the same guy Chump met and told him in France how hot the First Lady of France was looking?

I don't follow American football, but its interesting that Kappie is both getting $80 mill and yet not worth it. Maybe the owner of the Seahawks should be ridiculed for throwing that much money away. Maybe Kappie would have had the contract pulled eventually for lack of performance, or however how those contracts work. I'm sure there's an out written in somehow.

of course, what we all REALLY should be ticked at, is that an entertainer or an athlete gets that and schools barely get the budget of $80 million. an educated work force would really go far in MAGA, tho obviously that also would mean educated voters, and Chump wouldn't even be able to win Ohio that way.

Facts-

Jim Harbaugh is a successful college coach. He coached in the pros for 4 years. He was successful for 2 years and unsuccessful the next 2. His style was the “read-option” game, suitable for college ball.

Kap played for 6 years. He was successful those same 2 years, below average the next 2, and terribly dismal in his final 2 years after Harbaugh left. His last season he won one game and lost 10 games. CEO’s don’t hire losers.

Kap took Alex Smith’s job after he got injured. This is highly unusual, You never lose your job due to injury in the NFL. After Alex healed, Harbaugh stuck with Kap because he was better at Harbaugh’s collegiate level read - option. The only thing is that the pros are a gazillion times better than college players and coaches. So half way into Harbaugh’s second season, other teams caught on to it and, on the day they played them, prepared their defense specifically for the 49er’s style, the collegiate level read - option, which was the biggest thing they had going for them. And the other teams beat them terribly because it wasn’t a surprise any longer. Seattle is another team that uses the read-option with QB Russel Wilson, but they do it sparingly. The niners used it almost every play so when it was figured out, they became the worst team in football for many years. Harbaugh knew it and went back to coach at the college level. Kapernick took a knee and whined to the same people who provided him gigantic fame and a huge fortune.

Alex Smith left for Kansas City and has been a major success, a step or so short from being a Hall of Fame quarterback

Kapernick won a total of 3 games in his final two years and lost 16 games. He then turned down an 80 million dollar guaranteed contract from the SF Forty Niners. By the way he’s acting, no, I highly doubt that he sleeps well at night. Book deals? Movies? The man’s an athlete and thrives on competition. His wishes he could still eat, sleep and breath football and knows every minute of every day that he blew it big time. All you liberals that think he should have a job don’t understand that you need to produce to have a job as a top level professional. Nobody’s going to hire a loser and they’re not in the business to make social statements. Everyone of them is there to do one thing. Win. (Those meanies). Kap was proven suitable for that one style and a loser if it wasn't used, which isn't used by just about every other team. That's why the Seattle Seahawks are the only team interested in him, because they use the read-option, the only game Kap is successful at, as proven from his entire career.

How do I know all of this? I’m a life long niner fan. We even might have a chance this year with our new unbelievably talented stud, QB Jimmy Garoppolo.


Go 9er’s!!!

Some of us liberals, or anyone that is humane with an ounce of intelligence, don't give a rat's arse about football but noticed a man taking a stand and doing so in a respectful manner. In this day and age of marches with tiki torches and those shouting "Jews will not replace us" many find taking a silent knee for what you believe to be honorable, regardless of the game.

BTW, the POTUS could learn from Kaepernick on how to be respectful as all that POS POTUS seems to do is insult.

Go Green Bay.

If he were to do it all over again he would have taken the money and kept playing. You wouldn't know not giving a rat's ass but that's what players at this level live for, and have dreamt of doing since they were 5 years old playing Pop Warner. Quitting after only a few seasons in his mid twenties is a choice that will haunt him the rest of his life.
