    Super Bowl LIII: Rams vs Patriots.

    the super bowl should be moved to saturday. going to work the next day sucks...and i've heard statistics about a huge increase in call-off and loss of production the monday after the super bowl. short of declaring the monday after the sb a national holiday...which won't happen....the best solution is super bowl saturday!!!

    Hey Alvin!

    that was a tough call by the refs. if there are any saints' fans on here, i think this video really shows the clear pass interference: oh wait...this is your heartbreaking playoff loss from last season...not from yesterday. wrong play...my bad.

    i wouldn't say "rooting"...but the chefs are the least disgusting remaining option, imo.

    Kaepernick still no job

    "Two years ago, Colin Kaepernick sat on the bench during the national anthem for the first time before the San Francisco 49ers played the Green Bay Packers in a preseason game. This was the statement he gave after the game explaining why he was protesting: "I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color. To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder." When Kaepernick and I met and talked just six days later, a few hours before the 49ers were set to play the San Diego Chargers, we discussed a lot, but more importantly we listened to each other. I wanted him to stand and he had pledged to sit during the anthem, but we found middle ground: Colin would take a knee, making his statement about police brutality while also respecting the men and women who fought and died for what our flag is supposed to represent. The men who have followed in Kaepernick's footsteps say they are not protesting the anthem itself, they are demonstrating during the anthem. It's an important distinction to understand. Personally, I do not endorse Kaepernick's method of protest but I absolutely support his right to do so. That is an unpopular place to stand these days, in the radical middle, defending someone you somewhat disagree with…. It's hard for me to grasp why this is so difficult for people (from both ends of the political spectrum) to understand. It's OK to be different, it's what makes us the same - embrace it and remember that nobody's a perfect patriot, especially not me." --- former Seahawks long snapper Nate Boyer (a former Green Beret)

    Kaepernick still no job

    what are you babbling on about? tell the difference between pat & kap??? that's exactly what i was saying in my post. kap getting a nike deal has nothing to do with tillman...nothing. it's not a sleight against what tillman gave up. that was the entire point of my post. of course tillman's was the greater sacrifice. my point is that one has nothing to do with the other.

    Kaepernick still no job

    nike never said anything negative about tillman...or that kaep sacrificed more than tillman did. nike never claimed any of that. i didn't see nike compare kaep sacrificing his nfl career to tillman sacrificing his life for his country...because it didn't happen. it's a strawman created by a bunch of 'murica fueled/easily fooled, simple minded trumpbots. burn your sneakers, idiots.
  12. i say change it....then watch big balls doug go for it on 4th & 15 every time and run the f'n philly special til they stop it!

    Villanueva catches heat?!

    tbh, i thought kaep was annoying long before the protesting...i disliked him as a player...especially the biceps kissing nonsense...and always thought his cockiness far exceeded his talent as a qb. the kneeling thing never bothered me..still doesn't.

    Villanueva catches heat?!

    yeah, nobody's saying that kaep handled things perfectly every step of the way. the article I posted just gives the origins & background of the issue. somehow it is being interpreted as protesting & disrespecting the American flag & veterans...that was NEVER the intent. (I can do the CAPS thing too.)

    Did you know this?Aug 14, 2016- Colin Kaepernick sits for the national anthem.....and no one noticed.Aug 20th, 2016- Colin again sits, and again, no one noticed.Aug 26th, 2016- Colin sits and this time he is met with a level of vitriol unseen against an athlete. Even the future President of the United States took shots at him while on the campaign trail. Colin went on to explain his protest had NOTHING to with the military, but he felt it hard to stand for a flag that didn't treat people of color fairly.Then on on Aug 30th, 2016 Nate Boyer, a former Army Green Beret turned NFL long snapper, penned an open letter to Colin in the Army Times. In it he expressed how Colin's sitting affected him.Then a strange thing happened. Colin was able to do what most Americans to date have not...He listened.In his letter, Mr. Boyer writes:"I’m not judging you for standing up for what you believe in. It’s your inalienable right. What you are doing takes a lot of courage, and I’d be lying if I said I knew what it was like to walk around in your shoes. I’ve never had to deal with prejudice because of the color of my skin, and for me to say I can relate to what you’ve gone through is as ignorant as someone who’s never been in a combat zone telling me they understand what it’s like to go to war.Even though my initial reaction to your protest was one of anger, I’m trying to listen to what you’re saying and why you’re doing it."Mr. Boyer goes on to write "There are already plenty people fighting fire with fire, and it’s just not helping anyone or anything. So I’m just going to keep listening, with an open mind. I look forward to the day you're inspired to once again stand during our national anthem. I'll be standing right there next to you."Empathy and understanding was shown by Mr. Boyer.........and Mr. Kaepernick reciprocated.Colin invited Nate to San Diego where the two had a 90 minute discussion and Nate proposed Colin kneel instead of sit.But why kneel? In a military funeral, after the flag is taken off the casket of the fallen military member, it is smartly folded 13 times and then presented to the parents, spouse or child of the fallen member by a fellow service member while KNEELING. The two decided that kneeling for the flag would symbolize his reverence for those that paid the ultimate sacrifice while still allowing Colin to peacefully protest the injustices he saw.Empathy, not zealotry under the guise of patriotism, is the only way meaningful discussion can be had. Mr. Kaepernick listened to all of you that say he disrespects the military and extended an olive branch to find a peace.We can all learn from this backstory. The truth often lies in the middle. Seek to learn the opposing side's point.
