NFL owners approve new policy on kneeling during national anthem

Post by Annotated » Wed May 23, 2018 6:01 pm

I'm surprised that the owners would let the responsibility fall on their shoulders.

But then again, that's probably the only way something like this would get done.

You know the Player's Association would probably never go for it.
NFL owners have approved a new policy aimed at addressing the firestorm over national anthem protests. It permits players to stay in the locker room during the "The Star-Spangled Banner" but requires them to stand -- and not kneel -- if they're on the field. ...

In a sign that players were not part of the discussions, any violations of the policy would result in fines against the team -- not the players. The NFL Players Association said it will challenge any part of the new policy that violates the collective bargaining agreement.

You can't let the niggers run the plantation.
This is the only musical: the mouth. And hopefully the brain attached to the mouth. Right? The brain, more important than the mouth, is the brain. The brain is much more important.

Now comes the reduced salaries for the imbecilic players who cost the league 20% of its value over the last two years.

The stupid is strong.

Meanwhile, in the real world, the salary cap just increased again and players are signing record setting contracts on a daily basis.

Does reality ever make an appearance in Lost Soulandia, or is it kind of like a unicorn in the real world? You just never see it? You just kind of assume that shit ends up working out the way that you figure it should and don't pay much attention to what actually happens?

We can all continue to believe that a 20% decline in the ratings over two years is good for player's salaries, or we can live in the real world, where the next TV contracts will be for much less.

The choice is up to you.

For the idiot players, of course, it is already too late.

We should force police departments to get their funding via corporate sponsorship so that someone will give a fuck when they taze somebody for driving while black or burn an infant via stun grenade during a no-knock raid.

uhm the PLAYERS are the ones making the teams money. Not just at the pro level. but (atleast in the US) from elementary/middle school, high school ( in specific parts of the US/specific sports such as American Football, basketball, ice hockey...) make the schools tonnes of money...Up that for uni...

the players should decide. not the team. NOT the nfl/sport league

The PLAYERS are but one part of the equation. It takes everyone from the owner all the way down to the concession stand attendants and ticket-takers to make money.

Put a bunch of players on a field in a park and see how much money they make.

There is no money to be made without the players. Nobody goes to a game to see the concession stand attendants
