    I want to watch a game. They (don’t) get it. We pay them to intertain us. They start the kneeling or fist thing they can count me out.

    That spoils the game for me and my family.

    I won’t be watching football. So Sad!

    The point is they make (plenty) of money to take it somewhere else. They are too stingy to pay for their own cause. Really sad!

    Isn’t it interesting that these dire protests for such important causes needing recognition; had none by these self-same kneelers during the off season! Where were they for these issues that require they disrespect our Country’s Flag, Anthem, Veterans and We the People during their six months off??

    Well, if we don’t buy their products, go to the game, or watch them on T.V…… Maybe they won’t make as much money.

    I want them to play the game and put this other nonsense aside.

    If not, my family will just watch college football. They are (NOT) to big for their britches!

    Sorry NFL you are pathetic! Just say (NO) to kneeling or fists etc. Just play the GAME or you need to hit the road!

    It is a job and the American public is your boss!
